FIFrY-FIRsT ANNUAL REPORT OF
SUMMER MEETING
OF THE
Wisconsin State Horticultural Society
Chamber of Commerce Rooms,
Racine, Wisconsin,
Wednesday, August 18, 1920, 10 o'Clock A. M.
PROCEEDINGS
The Convention was called to order by Secretary Cranefield.
SECRETARY CRANEFIELD: It may seem to you rather a strange
proceeding, for the convention to be called to order by the Secre-
tary. To most of you no explanation is necessary, but for the
benefit of the others, I will say that through force of circum-
stances the perfectly good president whom we elected at our
convention last year, has been compelled to resign, and has left
the state. Last evening we made our acting president, Mr. Hays,
President of the Society. It is absurd to offer any introduction,
soI simply present to you at this time our president, Mr. Hays,
who will now conduct the meeting.
PRESIDENT HAYS: Ladies and Gentlemen: I thank you very
much for your kindness. I am not a public speaker, and have
never made a speech in my life, and I think too much. of this
audience to inflict a maiden effort upon it. We will simply start
out at once with our program.
H. F. Koch of Kenosha, is the first man on the program, and
he will now speak to us on "Outdoor Rose Growing."
