If it doesn't, Mansfield said it won't be because President Kennedy hasn't furnished leadership in efforts to put over his program, as some Republicans contend. "The President has given us sound leadership," he said. "He has tried lo meet Congress more than half way in his dealings with it. He has tried also to be as fair as possible to all groups in the population and to all segments in the economy." Disputing thai, .Sen. Bourke B. Hickenlooper, R-Iowa, said in a separale inlerview there has been "a complete lack of success in presidential leadership." The Iowa senator heads the Senate Republican Policy Committee. "In a good many areas I think it's a good thing for the country that this leadership hasn't been successful. Thankfully, most of the legislation that has been passed or will be passed, isn't in the form the administration wanted," Hickenlooper said. Gardens, a huge new development near Tuxedo, N. Y. The Grand Tapestry, one of the many delightful gardens at Sterling, was inspired by old Aubusson and Millefleurs tapestries. Five fountains and a dozen eight-foot flower urns highlight the plantings of dwarf marigold and arg- eratum and lanbark paths and designs of yellow and blue marble and glass chips. In the spring, the Tapestry garden, 340 feet long and 175 feet wide, featured blue and yellow pansics. Masses of sweet alyssum, tuberous begonias, iris, geranium and coleus add brilliance in plantings surrounding (he Persian carpet. In the spring there were myriads of tulips and other bulbs. In the fall, marigolds, chrysanthemums, asters, dahlias, cannas and primroses will add their warm hues. Summer is a good lime lo root azaleas and camellias. Take cut- lings 2-3 inches long from I h e season's growth, treat with a rooting hormone and stick in a half- and-half mixture of peat moss and sand. You may fill 6-inch clay pots with the moist sand and peat and insert the cuttings to a depth of 1-1 Vz inches. Slip a plastic bag over the pot and close the top with an elastic band. The peat-sand mixture should be kept moist for the 4-8 weeks needed to root the cuttings. Do not keep the cuttings in direct sun. They need a cool spot in indirect light.
