Look Out, Here Come The Nature Lovers By P. L. Ricker, President Wild Flower Preservation Society Wild flowers, as well as all of our other natural resources, should bo used wisely. In our more populous areas they are disappear ing more rapidly than any other comparable resource. Even in many of the "wild areas" some of the most valuable and delicate forms face a grim struggle for survival Much of our wild flower destruction is due to advancing civilization, such as clearing for farm land, increased grazing, commercial developments, and to fires. Except to prevent unnecessary burning, there is little we can do to stop this loss. There is one source of tremendous loss, however, that each and every one of us' can help to minimize and that is the toll taken by our "nature lovers." Raids as depicted by Mr. Darling are much more common than are generally believed. Anyone who has enjoyed, studied, and photographed wild flowers in wilderness areas has witnessed some destruction, and near large cities "wild flower raiders" are very common. In the early days of road construction for the Shenandoah National Park many people were able to secure permits to preview this wonderful area. Doubtless, few abused the confidence, but on one occasion two carloads of adults were actually found on the Crescent Rock area with spades,, trowels, and forks and were making it a shambles for the benefit of their personal wild flower gardens; and in the fall another large party was found stripping the mountain ash trees of their large clusters of beautiful bright-red fruits. Because of so many other raids the Crescent Rock area was largely denuded of its former extensive rock garden flora and has shown little recovery over a ten-year period. Doubtless other national and state park areas throughout the country were similarly treated before a more strict supervision was provided. It does not take much imagination to see what happens in wild areas less closely supervised. Education and public sentiment is the sure-fire way to prevent this needless destruction. Public senti­ ment is particularly effective. One example stands out in my mind. During World War I in the District of Columbia and vicinity, people were stripping the blossom- covered branches from the flowering dogwood trees in gTeat quantities. They were urged through a three-week newspaper campaign to observe' the results of their vandalism. The result was public sentiment brought to such a peak that audible criticism of anyone seen with dogwood branches put a stop to the raids, and the effects of the campaign lasted for many years. Most of our native plants were doubtless placed on this earth for us to enjoy in moderation. Collecting of the flowers of a few species does little more harm than cutting roses from a bush. Unfortunately, many are injured by extensive picking. Your part of the conservation of our wild'flower resources in twofold Think carefully before you pick, cut or dig; and, add your voice to the growing multitude who condemn the "wild flower raiders." MAKE WORK CLOTHES STURDY, COMFORTABLE If you can concentrate on your work without being hampered by sleeves that,bind or pockets that catch and rip, chances are your housedresses are good work clothes. Clothing that's well designed for active work is always most corn- fortable for household tasks, says Lucille Rea, Iowa State College clothing specialist. And it's a real aid to efficiency. Easy fit is important in work clothes. But that' doesn't mean oversize, says Miss Rea. Usually fullness across the back makes for comfort. So choose a pattern with gathers or pleats at the shoulder line. The skirt should be wide enough for comfort, but not flapping. Short sleeves, moderately widei or cap sleeves, are generally the easiest to wear—and the safest. As few fasteners as possible is a good rule. But openings should be kept flat. Have fasteners where they're easy to reach. Belts stitched on are best for safety and easy care. Place pockets at hand level, tops slanted for convenience. Fancy pockets catch too easily on doorknobs. Avoid any features such as dangling bows which can'catch on pan handles or other kinds of equipment. Construction' should be sturdy, with reinforcements where pockets and buttons are sewed on. Be sure to cot buttonholes with the grain, and work them closely. Remember, trimming should be as sturdy as the material in the dress. It's a good idea to stitch seams twice— with stitchings about % inch apart. A design which is comfortable, convenient to wear and easy to care for can be becoming too. Choose colors that are right for you, suggests Miss Rea. Ninety-eight percent of the timberland in Iowa is owned by the farmers. GARDEN AND LAWN FERTILIZER A limited supply available. 16% DAIRY is again in stock !
