GARNER--From an apple seed thrown out with parings in a back yard 24 years ago. a tree has developed a spread of 35 feet across its tranches. producing in "apple years," 15 bushels of luscious fruit. Kenry Duesenberg, 72, horticulturist and nurseryman, found the tree, purchased the propagating rights, and named it the "Hancock." In it ho found a tree that will withstand severe winters and is perfectly hardy in North Iowa. Well known Iowa horticulturists have placed it in a class with the Delicious, Wealthy, Jonathon and Whitney. It is a rich rec! color that will keep well into May under-ordi' nary conditions. Garner women who have tested its cooking qualities, say it "can't be beat." It stands in the back yard of the Marius Rasmus property, just across the fence nca r the Garner high school. Mr. Rasmus is the high school janitor and has a. way as does Mr. Duesenberg. retired Methodist minister, in getting along with the boys. The latter never molest its branches and are treated freely to its fruit. Back 30 years ago, Mr. Duesenberg operated a nursery on a small scale and had started "30,000 apple trees and as many evergreens, all of which were destroyed in the most severe hail storm that ever struck Garner. He carried on, and from this particular tree has 150 five foot trees started. Mr. Duesenberg is a brother of the late Fred Duesenberg and August Duesenberg of Indianapolis, Inch The Duesenberg brothers, Fred and August, are noted inventors. Together they built the motor for the late Sir Thomas Lipton of England, whose yacht won the world's famous races.
