EDITORIAL COMMENTNews. comes through, from time to time, concerning the Swimming Pool Fund, and plainly a fair amount of effort has already gone into raising what money we now have. But - using our present methods - will we ever reach our target amount? And what is that target? If we do get the money, will we get the swimming pool? Already there are suggestions that the Fund will be used for other purposes, each, no doubt, more worthy than the last. It does seem that some clarification is needed.

These genera must never be allowed to become dry, especially at the roots, for they will surely die, and try to keep them at least 45°ree; F in winter.
