Four different kinds of pines, honeysuckle and millti- flora rose are included on the available list.

By the end of the year, $1,800,552, just a few dollars over the quota, made the final goal of 100 percent. Every county in this area reached its goal with the exception of Emmet, which registered $981,553 in sales for 92 percent. Other totals were: Hancock, $1,138.115, 109 percent: Humboldt, $1,137,980, 115 percent; Palo Alto. $1.093,589, 101 percent; and Winnebago, $1,035,212, 101 percent.
