Oh the Flowers that Bloom in the Fall: Edward R. Schlanderer, 727 Miller Ave, rubbed his eyes, but they were still there- the four blossoms on the French lilac bush in his back yard. A 78-year-old retired cabinetmaker, Mr. Schlanderer's hobby is flowers, and in all his experience he has never seen a September-blooming lilac, nor, for that matter, has he ever heard of one. The blossoms first appeared a week ago.

Andy Potter (left) and Tim Michalak seem to be listening to the "Great Pumpkin", perhaps telling a lively tale about Halloween which is only some two weeks away. The pumpkin tips the scales at 138 pounds and has a 88 inch diameter. It was grown by Leonard Salley of 8691 McKean Rd., Augusta Township. (News Photo by Richard Walker).

HOLDING HIS OWN IN SQUASH: Six-year-old Jack Beck (right) appears to be having a hard time holding one of eight giant squashes which grew up mysteriously from an old compost pile in his yard. Jack's older brother, Don (left), who claimed ownership of the garden's rarities, holds one of two squashes which the Jay K. Beck family of 715 Virginia Ave., Ypsilanti, planted. Jack and the squash he holds both weigh exactly the same - 42 pounds. The eight "wild" squash together weigh some 200 pounds.
