Sulphur Springs’ most accomplish-

the subject '‘Music As a Force in
In developing her theme Miss
Knox pointed out that music can
bring about peace “because it
s knows no barriers of speech or
nationality. It is universal and in-
ternational. Peace will be found
in sympathy, understanding and
brotherly love, not in battlefields,
factories or academic halls.” -
Miss Knox said that music sti-
mulates the intellect, sooths pain,
comforts the distressed and up-
lifts the heart. “What better way
to create harmony than through
the medium of music?"
As a climax to her fine discus-
sion, Miss Knox presented Mrs
Estelle Gee Irwin and a group
of senior high choral students who
sang four beautiful folk songs.

Mrs. Reuben Clapp,,gave a most
interesting paper on Geraniums
at the meeting of the Morning
Arts Garden club Tuesday morn-
ing in the home of Mr. and Mrs.
Ill St. Clair. The information that
she gave will be of interest to
Sulphur Springs gardeners and
portions of her talk are' quoted
“Pelargoniums, for that is the
proper name for most of the
plants known as geraniums, come
originally from South Africa.
They are now so numerous and
offer so many fine species and
varieties for the summer garden
and window garden in winter, that
it is hard to think of a better
group of plants for the specialist.
Of the common garden or zonal
geraniums that we know, there
are literally hundreds of varieties
available. Some of the most pop-
ular are the Double Dark Red
the Double Bright Red, Double
Pink, Double Pin!: Salmon, Dou-
ble White, Double Light Pink.
The Lady Washington Geran-
ium is considered the queen of
them all and the loveliest flowers
of the geranium family.
Unlike the common bedding

splurge of bloom, normally in the
spring and then retire from the
The common garden type is
easy to grow in bright sunny cli-
matets. They prefer a soil which
is not too rich and full sunshine.
However in the extreme heat of
the summer, it is good to have
the plant in a semi-shady spot.
They will not grow at all in com-
plete shade. If the soil is too rich,
the plant produces soft, leggy
branches, dense foliage and a
scarcity of bloom. On the other
produce pale foliage and small
blooms. The ideal soil is slightly

sand and 1 part organic.
In summer gardens, the ger-
anium usually gets along with lit-
tle or no artificial watering. (.While
in pots or window boxes they need
to be watered only when the sur-
face soil feels dry to the touch
and should be soaked to a depth of
at least 6 inches. It is much bet-
ter to soak the soil well once a
week than to sprinkle lightly
For beautiful beds, allow 8
inches in all directions for spread-
ing. Pinching off the tops of each
plant will promote branching, but
will delay blooming several weeks.
For fertilizer, bonemeal is excel-
lent. Mix in a liberal amount while
preparing the soil.
In propagating, it, is much bet-
ter to take cuttings from the old-
er plants and start with fresh
plants for indoor growing. Gut-
tings may be taken anytime from
4 to 8 inches long from strong
branches that have leaves grow-
ing together. Remove the leaves

They can be potted in sandy loam.
Although fall cuttings make the
most vigorous plants, those soot-
ed during the early summer make
satisfactory plants for winter

Up In Air
You might say that a British
artist named Marit Guinness
Aschan is up in the air about her
paintings. Because Mrs. Aschqn
—now exhibiting her collection
in New York—does her painting
from airliners in high altitude
flight. Appropriately enough,
she calls such paintings “Sky-
scapes.”-. , w
The talented and original art-
ist is believed to be the first to
paint from the stratosphere. She
has done some ot her work while
flying in Britain’s Comet jet air- |
liner 40,000 feet up at 450 miles
One, of Mrs! Aschan’s pictures
was done from the flight deck of
a BOAC Stratocruiser when she
crossed the Atlantic a few days
ago for the exhibition in New
Describing the idea behind
skyscapes, the artist says, “I do
not try to copy these vistas
cloud by cloud as a camera would
record them, but I try to put into
poetical form my personal exper-
iences of color, form and light
when I am no longer earth-
About half of the 40 or so

also is noted.
