Arborcrest's 'Memorial Garden' In Weeds. This healthy crop of weeds dominates the "memorial garden" of the Four Chaplains in Arborcrest Cemetery. The subject of a court battle started in 1961, the cemetery is supposed to be maintained under court order during the lawsuit which seeks to overturn the sale of most of the original 77-acre cemetery to the University. This "garden" and several others remain in the 17-acre parcel that still constitutes the cemetery under the sale agreement. Circuit Judge James R. Breakey Jr. said on June 21 that he would dictate an opinion ending the lengthy suit "within a week or two" unless all parties reached agreement before then. Neither a court opinion nor a settlement has come. (Other pictures on Page 29)

Deciding that "the only way to get anything done is to do it yourself," one lotholder in Arborcrest Cemetery has transported his lawnmower and mowed to his burial plots from the road. This plot is in the Four Chaplains' Memorial Garden, down the hill from the large granite monument which is the focal point of this garden. A court-ordered plan for maintenance of the cemetery calls for a minimum of 40 hours per week with efforts concentrated in one memorial garden and its adjoining roadway at a time with weekly efforts to maintain the general condition of all the grounds, grass being cut and trees trimmed as necessary. Circuit Judge James R. Breakey Jr. demanded this maintenance plan after touring the weed-choked cemetery grounds on June 30, 1964.

The only well-maintained garden in Arborcrest Cemetery is the Beth Israel Memorial Garden which is cared for by its lotholders. Well-trimmed shrubs and a flower garden are unusual features at Arborcrest which apparently receives little care under the court-ordered maintenance plan. Beth Israel lotholders are prominent among the 600 persons to seek to have the Circuit Court overturn sale of 60 of Arborcrest's original 77 acres and protect it as a cemetery.
