The Eugene Chapter Show

        Although the number of entries this year was down because of the prolonged cold, rainy weather, balmy weather on show day encouraged more than 6,000 visitors to tour the exhibit area.
        Dan Morris, president of the Eugene chapter of the American Rhododendron Society, said the show drew 550 cut trusses and 33 plants this year, compared with some 800 trusses and about 115 plants entered in last year's show. Visitors included a group of 66 rhododendron enthusiasts from New Zealand, who made a three-day stop in Eugene on their tour of West Coast shows.
        Winner of seven of fourteen silver trophies and awards was Harold Greer, Eugene.

   background and temper wind movement. 
   The containers are firmly held on the shelves
   and the blooms displayed  to good advantage
