The orchids, miniature i-eplicas of the lush, tropical flower, bloom profusely on protected hillsides, out arc only one of a myriad of flowering plants which cover the grassy Aleutian slopes. Buttercups, wild iris, bluebells und lilies of the valley arc, among tho more common blooms. Many soldiers have well-kept flower gardens around the doors of their quonsot huts, and flowers border the pathways. Vases with an assortment of blossoms brighten the corners of many huts, and it's not unusual to see ofllccrs of the post commander's staff, returning from their weekly hike, carrying Aleutian flowers. Amateur botanists found flowers on these islands markedly similar to species on tho mainland. In general, the flowers are much smaller here—where growth is conditioned by the short summer season—and arc . more delicately scented or without any scent. , • • •• Soldiers have also found that the native flowers provide them the means to "say. it with flowers.". They -press the blooms between blotters and include them in let- tors to wives and sweethearts at home. Haxleton, Pa.—(UP)—Alfred W.
