THE STATEWIDE beautifica

maintain inviting appearances
along highways, streets and in
parks and other public areas.
Though the drive this summer is
concerned mainly with clean

In addition to being promoted
by garden clubs across the state,
the campaign is being helped by
civic clubs, religious and pa

press, and radio and television
