FKJHT OVER TREE ENDS— Hutchison, Minn.: This magnificent tree, said to be the largest elm in the state of Minnesota, is shown just as it begins its mighty fall to the earth, victim of the axe and saw. It stood for generations directly In the center of Glen street. Last August the city council condemned it as a menace to safety and Mayor Grant Dwinnell ordered it removed. Scores of citizens rose up against the decree and a reprieve was granted. Petitions both for and against its removal were presented to the council who were quite literally up the stump.
