(UP)—Scientific research has disproved a tlme-liou- ored rule of gardeners—"cut your roses ii\ the morning when the dew Is on (hem." Joseph E. Howiand, Cornell University Floriculture Deparlmenl assistant, says that it has been conclusively proved thai roses cut In Hie afternoon last as inucli as 10 hours longer. Heretofore housewives with onl> n single rosebush, and gardener. 1 ; with many, have been brouglil u|: to observe religiously the rule ihat It Is tetter lo pick roses In the morning. Literature in the field loo, has recommended the practice. Howiand, using more than 1,000 roses in more lhan a year of research, found lhal roses keep nearly eight hours lonuer ivhen cut a 4:30 p. in., than when cut at 8 a in. During the hot wcallicr, Ihe at lernoon cutting increased Ihe keep ing time lo nearly 10 horns long or. 'the explanalion is Hint th leaves make sugar when the Mill - , shines.

I when cut in the morning Improvements Made To Stevens Residence few luavrs keep just as long <is long-stemmed ones with many leaves — debunking another lime-honored rule. The history of roses .supports Ihe new evidence. Howiand pointed out that as early as 1008, French invMigators discovered that the quality of cut flowers was nol improved by any chemical used in water, unless it was used in com- lilnalion with sugar. Even today florists sell "sugar powder" (o prolong Ihe liic of roses, but up to now did not know why it worked. Sugar alone cannot, . be used In Ihe waler because bacterial growth would be increased, and possibly plug water-conducting elements in the stem of the cut flower. A chemical which prevents rapid bacterial growth in the water must be used with the sugar. A large supply of sugar in the leaves and petals is one of Ihe faclors in preventing premature fall of the petals. The Cornell investigator became interested in the rose problem through similar research on culling hay. It was found that culling hay in the late afternoon resulted floor underneath i( the present one goes. Keep It clean and wax it frequently. If your floors are of wood, they should be painted with I wo coals of a waterproof varnish. Every kitchen should have plenty of light. That is why walls and ceilings should be painted or papered in a H^ht color. Dark colors absorb the IlKht. Light colors reflect it. If walls are 'dingy and dirty and a nciv coat of paint is needed, lie sure In pick light colors. Another thing, Ihe harder and smoother Ihe surface IhC' more IL will tend to repel!
