Jwftfer Editors Quiz on FLOWER MAKE FRIENDS V Time* Herald, Carroll, l«wa Monday, Aug. S, lWf There has to be. of course, a last person or couple to leave a party. Don't always be that one. Some big league baseball teams don't have to worry about being switched to another town. No other city would want them. QUESTION: What ts the largest flower In the world? ANSWER: AiHree-foot large iwngle plant known as Rafflesia Arnold!, discovered on the Island of Sumatra in 1816. This plant is without stem or leaves. Flesh-colored, it weighs as much as 15 lbs. and measures maybe a yard across. The huge petals ere up to three quarters of an inch thick. The flower has a round center which resembles an automobile Hre, forming a hollow bowl which can hold two gallons of liquid. Before the petals open, Rafflesia looks somewhat like an outsize cabbage. One* the petals unfold and the flower reaches its full size, the plant decays within a day or two. Unlike many flowers, Rafflesia has a terrible smell — like spoiled meat. FOR YOU TO DO: Observe the flowers in gardens near your home and learn the names of as many as you can from grownups and friends. (A $10 award goes to Fred Huber Jr., of Clifton, N. J., for this question. Whafs yours? AP Newsfeatures. Tomorrow: Which has more neck bones, the giraffe or a sparrow?)
