Grumpier said, sne wanted to plant a garden and the cit3'-owned plot next to her house looked like a good spot. "(Jo ahead" the city officials told her. The city had charted Evergreen Street to run through the plot, "but the street never will be opened in your lifetime." So Mrs. Grumpier hauled in rocks fertilizer, peat moss and started planting flowers. Soon the flower garden became a neighborhood showplace. Then, last month, came a notice from the city public works department that Evergreen street would, be opened. Mrs. Grumpier would have to move, that part of her garden which came within limits of the proposed street, the notice said. At the next city council meeting she told her story and then gave ail the councilmen some flowers from her garden. The councilmen tossed the problem to the Public Works Department. On a second look, the Public Works department found that Champion Street—another non-existent street on tbe other side of Mrs. Crumpler's flower bed—would serve the city's purposes just as well 6s Evergreen Street.
