Mrs. Schorling Re-Elected By Garden Club

The Ann Arbor Garden club reelected its president, Mrs. Raleigh Schorling of Lenawee Dr. at its annual dinner meeting held mast night in the Michigan League, returning to office all of her staff of the past year except the vice-president. Miss Mina L. Winslow of Miller Rd. is the new vice-president succeeding Mrs. H. H. Cummings of Church St., who is busy this year as president of the Washtenaw Medical society auxiliary. Other officers re-elected last night are: Mrs. Edward M. Bragg of Ferdon Rd., secretary; Mrs. Charles L. Washburne of Ferdon Rd., treasurer; Mrs. Leslie F. Rittershofer of Glacier Way, corresponding secretary; and Mrs. Allen S. Whitney, of Church St., member-at-large.

After the dinner and business meeting, stereopticon pictures in natural colors were shown by Prof. Ralph Hammett of Pontiac St. There were pictures of southern mansions during the open house weeks of the famous Natchez, Miss., pilgrimages, when the charm of dress and hospitality of the antebellum days is brought to life again for garden visitors who go there from all over the country.

There were pictures also of old New Orleans and its gorgeous azaleas and camellias and other blossoms; of the desert beauties of Texas; and of the almost confusing abundance of flowers and shrubs and trees in Mexico.

Holiday Theme

The dinner tables, at which were seated about 100 members, were done in the holiday theme, with old-fashioned vases in sculptured white pottery, holding red carnations, white snapdragons, Michigan holly and a few sprays of yew.

At the places were cards bearing the Huron-Clinton parkway project stamps, with the record of the vote that passed the measure at the election this month. The garden clubs supported the project. The annual report of the conservation committee chairman, Mrs. Kate Hubbard of Glenwood Dr., told of this project of the club, also of the sale of state conservation stamps.

Other reports were given by Mrs. C. C. Meloche of Dover Rd., chairman of the program and nominating committees; Mrs. E. W. Meranda of E. Huron River Dr., on school garden work which has met with much success and enthusiasm; Mrs. Robert P. Briggs of Ridgeway, publicity chairman; Mrs. Hugh E. Keeler of Onondaga St., on the increased membership for the year; Mrs. John L. Brumm of Cambridge Rd., on horticulture; Mrs. Dean W. Myers on garden pilgrimages; and Mrs. Whitney, for Mrs. F. Bruce Fralick, on the garden visiting program which opened more than 60 gardens to the club.
