LEWIS Roses For Church, Sick, And Shut-Ins By Anne Howard C. D. Lewis of Clendeniu is our guest rose columnist today. There must be something about the air in Clendenin, because I think there are more rosarians in that section per square foot than in any part of the state! At any rate, Lewis says he got his start in rose growing from two other Clendenin rosarians --Mike a n d Dixie R o s $. the L e w i s ' good friends Anne Howard and neighbors. The Rosses gave much encouragement, advice, and able assistance to the Lewises--and well-qualified to do so, having won numerous rose show awards, from the local to the international level, including the much coveted Nicholson Bowl. "Rose growing became a hobby at the Lewis home," Lewis says, "in the spring of 1959, starting with 12 bushes. "I entered the Charleston Rose Society's spring show," he continued," and won the award for the best floribunda rose, and Princess of the Show." This was a rousing start to a rose-oriented life, evidental- ly, because after that the Lewis's rose garden grew from the original 12 roses to its present 90 bushes. Lewis has exhibited in many shows "from quite a few places in Ohio to Washington, D,C., including two national shows," and has accumulated "several nice awards." "All of this would have been impossible," he confesses, "without the able assistance of Mrs. Lewis, who is the last say on the grooming." IN ADDITION to being supported in his hobby by his wife, Lewis attributes his in- Barbara Anita Leslie Bride of Glen Yeager Roses: They're Just Like People By C. D. Lewis (61h in a series on Roses) Roses are like people. Each rose has its own characteristics and responds entirely differently from other species to the same care. Their patterns of growth and behavior, therefore, have to be studied in order to know your roses. You will find that each ro- sarian has his own way of doing things--which he has learned by experience and study. He usually has some good tips that you have not yet stumbled onto. HAVE YOU noticed how many times when someone comes to see your garden the first thing he does after looking at a rose is to smell it? It seems that a rose to be really complete must have fragrance. Last winter was considered a very mild winter, but rose growers discovered it was very hard on roses. Due t o the mild weather, the roses never were entirely dormant, which left sap in the canes. When we did have two or three cold nights it froze the sap, thus splitting or killing the canes. This time of year everyone is fighting Japanese beetles, mildew, and black spot. So far, no one has found how tr prevent the Japanese beetles from coming. The best way that 1 have to combat them is to pick out a rose they especially like, one that does not lose its petals too quickly. Spray Sevin thickly in the hlnnm so the beetles will eat it and die. It will be necessary Stephen Barnett Weds Jane Roskamp of Iowa CEDAR FALLS, Iowa-Miss Jane Mary Roskamp, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Harold Peter Roskamp of Cedar Falls, became the bride of Stephen Franklin Barnett, son of the Rev. and Mrs. Harry Franklin Barnett of Charleston, W. Va., at r, p.m. Saturday in the Chrisl Church of Cedarloo (Orthodox Presbyterian) here. The bridegroom's father performed the ceremony and was assisted by the Rev. Max Belz and the Rev. Eugene B. Williams. Music was provided by Miss Florence Roskamp, cousin of the bride, Mrs. Stephen Fikkert of Lookout Mountain, Tenn., Steven Law- Ion of California and Mrs. Clarence Roskamp of Cedar Falls, aunt of the bride. THE BRIDE was given in marriage by her father. Her attendants were Miss Ellen Barnetl, sister of the bridegroom, maid of honor, and Miss Sara Roskamp, sister of the bride, bridesmaid. Scott Martin of Newark, Del., was b e s t man and groomsman was Timothy Barnett, brother of the bridegroom. John Roskamp, brother of the bride, and Stephen Fikkert were ushers. A reception followed at Howard J o h n s o n ' s Motor Lodge. The couple will live in Lookout Mountain, where she is a music major at Covenant College and he is a biology major. He will graduate in the spring and plans to study medicine. His father is pastor of Kanawha S a l i n e s Presbyterian Church in Charleston. to pick off the ones that do not eat the Sevin. Black spot and mildew are two of the most common diseases of roses in late summer. Both will be found even in well-kept gardens, especially after a wet spell. Rain washes off the spray as fast as it is put on. Once you get black spot and mildew there is no cure, and leaves with black spot should be picked and destroyed. Since mildew seems to like 1 tender growth the best, the cure is to cut the bush back below any signs of mildew and let it come again. If kept well sprayed with a good rose spray, the chances are that the next blooming will be free of disease. I have found that by feeding my roses heavily from the first of April until July 1--and no feeding after that date--I do not get so much mildew. The feeding program that has proven to be the most rewarding for me is about one cup of 5-10-5 or 5-10-10 as soon in the spring as the ground is ready, with two more feedings--at intervals of 10 to 15 days between feedings--to end by July 1. Feed with Rapid- Gro or some other high nitrogen fertilizer, according to directions on the label. Some time during this feeding period, each bush should have two tablespoons of Epsom Salts and about one cup of Harbro- tite watered in with a hose without nozzle to soak to the roots. ANY ROSE grower who is interested in exhibiting in fall shows should find out the dates of shows in which he wishes to exhibit well in advance. Cut the roses back so they will bloom as near the show dates as possible. Since the weather is a big factor in the length of time it takes from the time a rose is cut back until another bloom, it is best to cut a few each day over a 10 to 14 day period. To accomplish the desired results, a person has to study each species for the length of time that particulr bush requires, because they vary in time. Some will bloom in 35 days while others require 60 days. * * * ROSE GROWING is a lot of work, but it can be a very rewarding a n d interesting hobby. I'm sure you've read (he little plaque or sign found in many gardens, which goes: "The kiss of the sun for pardon The song of the birds' mirth God's nearer the heart in a garden Than any place on earth.'' I am sure this means more to gardeners than to people who never work with the earth and growing things. Miss Barbara Anita Leslie, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. J. Fred Leslie of Winfield, became the bride of Glen R. Yeager, son of Mr. and Mrs. Glenn Yeager of Atlanta, Ga., at 5:30 p.m. Saturday in the First Baptist Church in Hurricane. The Rev. Earl Ted Wall officiated and music WPS nrovided by Mrs. Gladys Ellis. Given in marriage by her father, the bride wore a floor- length gown of peau de soie and reembroidered Alencon lace fashioned with a high-rise bodice, scoop neckline and full bishop sleeves of English net appliqued with medallions of the same lace. The A-line skirt ended in a full circular train and a lace-covered pill box held her lace-trimmed illusion mantilla. She carried a How Can I? Q. Is there a good homemade glue or cement that will stick glass to glass, leather to metal, or other such tricky combinations? A. Try burning some shellac In a dish to get rid of the alcohol, and the result will be one of the strongest and best all-purpose glues you have ever used. Q. How can I shine patent leather? A. Use one-third water and two-thirds vinegar, or use petroleum j e l l y --a n d after applying either, go over the entire surface with a clean, dry cloth. Q. How can I repair deeply- scratched woodwork? A. Try filling the scratches with a mixture of fine sawdust and spar varnish, and after this has hardened completely, smooth down with some fine sandpaper.

"I was raised by a mother who grew beautiful flowers of ail kinds." he says, "from petunias to roses. It was not hard for rose growing to bfi- come a part of the way of life around the Lewis home, especially since my wife is also a lover of flowers." After the June shows are over, the Lewises try to have one or two arrangements in church each Sunday. The arrangements then go to some sick or shut-in person to enjoy.
