The federal theater project which is to be discussed is based on the belief that there is intelligence, skill, experience and enthusiasm in the thouands of theater people out of work and in the hundreds of other persons who will co-operate with them, according to Mrs. Romey. A center for this theater activity is already in existence in .the Iowa Univerity theater. Prof. E. C.

We Recommend Lux for all fine Washables Department Hears Talk on Gardens Professor B. S. Pickett Speaks on Place of Fruits, Vegetables. Expressing the wish that American women could be convinced that fruit and vegetable gardening were fashionable and the thing to do, Professor B. S. Pickett, head of the horticulture department of Iowa State college, addressed the Woman's club outdoor life department in the library assembly, Wednesday, speaking on "Fruits and Vegetables Belong in Beautiful Gardening." "In the gardens of antiquity, first emphasis was laid on fruits, and the second possibly on flowers or vegetables. The garden of Eden is symbolic, but there undoubtedly existed a prototype in some man's mind when he put down that beautiful poetry and there seemed to him to be no more fitting place for our first ancestors than a garden." Garden ol Solomon. Prof. Pickett spoke of the garden of Solomon which contained herbs and pleasant trees and discussed the introduction of fruits from the Persian gardens to Greece and northern Egypt by Alexander the conqueror, "Roman emperors, 200 years after Christ, gardened on a grandelo- quent scale, but they did not leave out the utilitarian part," Professor Pickett described the methods used by the early Romans for cucumbers, grapes and roses. "Louis XIV developed a fruit and vegetable garden on a magnificent scale and his gardener, Quintain, wrote the earliest first class book on gardening which has been translated by John Evelyn, the famous gardener of sixteenth century England, the author of the first-scholarly English books on gardening. Farming the Vogue. "Virgil made gardening, farming and country life the vogue because he was a great poet and wrote of gardening and farming in his Bucclics' and 'Georgics.' Hesoid wrote the oldest book on gardening. He was a contemporary of Homer and in his works are directions for caring for a garden. It is interesting to find this background for fruit and vegetable gardening and to kndw that vegetables and fruits belonged in the _reat gardens. More commonly than elsewhere, emphasis is laid on decorative paidena in America," Slides Are Shown. Professor Pickett showed slides of fruits and vegetables and pointed out the variety of texture, form and interest to be derived from seeing things growing well. "It is just as rich an experience to see fruits or vegetables growing vigorously and in abundance as to see flowers," he said. The speaker discussed the preparing of corn, garden peas, asparagus and strawberries for the table. These foods lose their flavor rapidly after being picked and should be taken as directly from the garden to the table as possible. "The most useful and impressive of fruit trees is the apple," he said. "The apple tree is of sentimental value, offers shade and is picturesque. The plum tree is next.." At the conclusion of his talk, Professor Pickett displayed a number of new varieties of hardy apples which have been developed at Ames. Tea was served at the close of the afternoon by the outdoor life committee. K. B. AtrXELIARY CONDUCTS MEETING K. B. auxiliary met Wednesday evening for dinner at the Park Inn cafe and later went to the Y. W, C. A., where Mrs. W. H. Spence spoke on the works of Jimrnie Yen and Kagawa.
