And Why Not Crobgross? _^ , * m 1^,1-1,1 ------______iiL-_-i.-.r'ffir—*~— J ^-:—L JT ^^^^^^^.^^^^ Public May Decide Fight Over National Flower By WARH CAVNEL NEA Staff Correspondent WASHINGTON - <NEA> — Now, (he whole story behind all these delays in space travel is: there are always a lot of vital chores to clean up on the eve of any extended trip. For example: MtsClarks REAL ROQMORJ DRESSING We still do not have a national flower. And. as it is obviously impossible to embark on universalism when nationalism is still at loose ends, space legislation has practically come to a standstill. According to Rep. Paul C. Jones of Missouri (The Hawthorn), chairman of the House Administratidn Sub-committee on Enrolled Bills and Library: Eighty-five Congresses have been unable to select a national flower. There are now more House, Senate or joint resolutions awaiting action on the matter than ever before. But a final decision still seems impossible; sf> the issue must be turned over to American public opinion. Times Herald, Carroll, la. Wednesday, Oct. 14, 1959 At the present writing, the Congressional checkmate involves 12 Democrats, 10 flowers, 14 Republicans, and 15 resolutions. The breakdown: Three Democrats and three Republicans (The Rose), vs. one Democrat (the Red Rose), vs. three Republicans and two Democrats tthe Corn Tassel), vs. three Republicans (the Daffodil, Marigold, Black-eyed Susan), vs. three Democrats and a Republican (the Mountain Laurel and Shasta Daisy), vs. three Republicans and three Democrats (the Carnation), vs. one Republican (Grass). No compromise is seen likely by Congressional leaders since a "Wreath of All Flowers" (House Resolution No. 4199) has been withdrawn under heavy attack. Actually, the real battle over flower arrangements began 20 Congresses ago. In 1919 — on the eve of Women's Suffrage — Rep. Edward Taylor of Colorado (the Columbine) introduced a bill asking that the Columbine be adopted. But before any action could be taken, delaying tactics were initiated. Rep. Halvor Steenerson of Minnesota (the Ladyslipper) and Rep. William Stevenson of South Carolina (the Jessamine) took a stand for the Laurel (Pennsylvania). And so it has gone: a flurry of Congressional activity along the garden path on the eve of every threatening change to the American way of life. But as things have always looked better in the morning, no vote has ever been taken. Now, however, with a Russian rocket on the moon and seven American astronauts fin i s h i n g their education for space travel, the matter has been turned out for a public vote. A specially prepared ballot, listing 20 flowers and plants commonly grown in the U.S. — with space for write-ins — will be available at member shops of the Florists' Telegraph Delivery Association "Americans are urged to vote early," an FTD spokesman explained, "as the balloting is open to everybody of all ages and we do not want to inconvenience the NEW NATIONAL FLOWER?: Grass kiddies by making them stand in line too long." The final tally will be handled by an impartial vote-counting agency. And the results will be turned over to the chairman of the Senate Judicary Sub-Committee on Federal Charters, Holidays and Celebrations. Sen Joseph C. O'Mahoney of Wyoming (the Paintedcup) when the voting period is closed at the end of October (the CosmosV Arrest of 3 Boys Solves 3 Break-ins The arrest late Tuesday of throe teen-age Carroll boys has solved three break-ins in Carroll over the weekend, Chief of Police Alvin Bruning reported Wednesday.
