            Federation 
            MAY 17-18-19 
    Field House--Wauwatosa 
A FTER a lapse of a number of 
    years the Wisconsin Garden Club 
Federation will again stage a State 
Flower Show with all garden clubs in 
Wisconsin invited to participate. 
  An ideal location for the show has 
been secured by the committee, of 
which Dr. Carl Schwendener is chair- 
man. It is the Athletic Field House 
near the Milwaukee Railroad depot in 
Wauwatosa. This is a large building 
with ideal accommodations. There is 
plenty of parking place, and the build- 
ing has large doors so that trucks may 
drive in. 
  The schedule of classes calls for 
some interesting exhibits. There are 
four classes of little gardens, and road- 
side stands. Dinner tables will consist 
of outdoor garden tables, formal tables, 
period tables consisting of Russian, 
French and English, and also luncheon 
tables. 
  There will be still life pictures of 
Wisconsin scenes in horizontal niches. 
There will be 15 niches or shadow 
boxes of silhouettes, etchings or flow- 
er pictures. 
  Screen arrangements will feature 
flowers of a state or nation. 
  A new class, "entries for men only, 
let your conscience be your guide" is 
one which should bring out some new 
things and test the ability of the men. 
  There will also be classes for indoor 
gardens and outdoor window boxes as 
well as flower arrangements and speci- 
men bloom. 
  The schedule of classes will be pub- 
lished in the next issue 'of Wisconsin 
Horticulture. 
  Woman (in subway): "I wish 
that  good-looking   young   man 
would get up and give me his 
seat." 
  Six men got up.
