E NTRIES for our flower show 
    are coming in fine, and we 
are very much encouraged by the 
response we are getting. Espe- 
cially gratifying is the response 
from the clubs away from Mil- 
waukee-so that we can say at 
this time it will truly be a State 
  The show will have a Victorian 
setting, the staging all arranged 
around the central axis of the 
building. This makes it possible 
to have a nice vista right down 
the center with suitable features 
at each end. Combined with the 
plantings, this will give us an in- 
teresting view from either direc- 
tion. It will also be divided into 
two sections by evergreens and 
will as nearly as possible key the 
outdoor entries in one section, 
and the indoor in the other. All 
the entries will be so arranged 
around the vista and planting of 
the central axis to give a-feeling 
of balance and harmony to the 
entire show. 
  We hope garden club members 
will exhibit horticultural speci- 
mens in Section IX. The public is 
interested in these and in some- 
thing they can see and learn 
about that can be used in their 
own gardens, so bring as many 
as you can.
