Wednesday evening she was entertained by Miss Gerry Krogull and Mrs. •Vincent Krogull and her daughters, Sheila and Mrs. Curt Schrock. The party was qiven at Miss Krogull's home, 226 Ave. B; Lincoln Mobile Park. Bridal games were played by the 17 guests. / The bride-elect's chosen colors, peach and yellow, were used for the decorations. Peach and yellow streamers with white wedding bells were suspended over the gift table. The serving More Americans than ever are growing vegetables this year. It has been reported that at least half of the country's 68 million households are growing some of the food they eat. • Mrs. Emil Walker of Woodstock, an organic gardener for 23 years, offered advice to members of Freeport Garden Club and guests on starting a garden and then demonstrated how flowers and vegetables could be arranged together for pleasing summertime centerpieces. •Her program was entitled, "Vegetables - Edible and Ornamental." "An uninterrupted sunny .spot should be selected for the garden. This should be the first consideration," she said. Mrs. Walker then reminded the garden,club members that good drainage and good circulation also were paramount in selecting a spot. Trees nearby -will take sustenance from the soil and definitely affect the vegetable garden. Soil preparation, she continued, should be the next consideration. "We grow plants in 'soil,' not dirt. 'Dirt' is what we wash off little boys." Mrs. Walker advised feeding the rabbits that might be found in the garden. "Buy rabbit pellets for them, and they will not disturb your garden." She went on to explain that organic fertilizer slowly releases and doesn't burn. "It is used as the plant re^ quires."'When using chemicals, she suggested using less than directed. Some gardeners use chemical fertilizers in combination with organic. This is a good practice, she said. Hybrid seeds are the best to buy, Mrs. Walker feels. For a summer mulch she suggested hay, straw and newspaper. Newspaper, six or eight sheets in thickness, is soaked in a tub of water and then laid on the soil between rows. "It will prevent weeds (if there are no holes in the paper)' and will rot down by fall." For some of her vegetable arrangements, she used the following in combination: Red cabbage, broccoli, purple kohlrabi with hosta bloom and allium. Dora Pinnow lily branch, curled brown canna leaves, yellow squash, green onions with tops. Valentine red rhubarb split and curved with Detroit red beet. Bibb lettuce, Hungarian hot peppers (yellow) and yellow summer squash. Tomato branches, limq beans, celery root (celric), green bean and broccoli. Cauliflower, blossom of leak,, yellow lily and cucumber. Any of these combinations, she suggested, as perfect for a dinner party.
