"DOGWOOD WEEK" TO BE AN
ANNUAL CAROLINA PROJECT
The Farmville Garden Club is spon
soring- "Dogwood Week" during the
week of January 27th, and request all
citizens of the town and community
to plant one or more Dogwoods. The
State Garden Club planned at the
October board meeting to promote the
planting of these trees as widely as
possible hi the State. The last of Jan
uary will probably be the best time
to transplant Dogwoods.
Mrs. Charlotte Hilton Green, who
writes "Out-of-Doors in Carolina",
urges planting of Dogwoods - around
the homes, along the country lanes
and the bigger highways, m public
grounds, churchyards, cemeteries,
and parks. She asks why doesn't the
South make more of its God-given
beauty, the flowering dogwood?
"God's gift to Southern forests" is
what Clarence Poe, editor of the Pro
gressive Farmer, so aptly names the
Dogwood. She continues that here it
is at our very door-step, just for the
trouble of digging and transplanting,
and note please, that doee not mean
raiding the other fellow's woodland.
Instead make a deal with the fanner
to <4>tain the trees. Or they can be
purchased from the State Depart
ment of Conservation and Develop
ment for $20.00 per hundred, or ten
We could make the entire State a
gigantic "Dogwood Festival" that
would in time rival Japan's Cherry
Blossom Festival. Let each and
every one do his or her part towards
creating this, North Carolina, the
State of Dogwoods. This would be
moet fitting as it is the State Flower. I

H. S. HATEM,
An article on the Canary was read
by Billie Russell at Saturday's Bird
Club meeting. This bird found today
in every country on the globe, occu
uies a remarkable place, since among
our common domestic birds it alone
is kept and reared solely for the
pleasure and companionship that it
brings into our homes. Its contribu
tion to our well being comes entirely
in the form of pleasing songs and in
teresting mannerisms. It joins the
cultivated flowers m making attrac
tive the background of our lives.
The true wild Canary is grayish
above streaked rather heavily with
blackish, and marked with yellow on
the rump and crown. The breast is
dull yellow and the sides grayish, in
distinctly streaked. This is the stock
from which all our domestic Canaries
Accustomed as we are to the Ca
nary in captivity it seems strange to
consider them as living wholly at
freedom. In their island homes they
range commonly in gardens and or
chards, and are also found in sterile,
atony where they may be tame and
confiding, or wild and difficult to
approach. Canaries remained rare for
a considerable period and commanded
such prices that for a long time they
were kept only by the wealthy.
The nests are cups of grasses and
weed stems lined with softer mater
ials, placed in bushes or on low
branches of trees. The three to five
eggs are light green, spotted with
reddish brown. The song is as attrac
tive as in captive birds, though not
so prolonged in utterance, nor is it
given for so much of the year.
Among the distinct strains kept by
Canary fanciers are'the White, Cin
namon, Lisard, Norwich, Belgian
Fancy, and Scotch Fancy, Crested,
Lancashire, Frilled and Yorkshire. ||
