        An interested group of some 30 or so members of the A.R.S. assembled in the lobby of the Bayshore Inn at 7 A.M. Saturday morning and walked to Stanley Park where Mary Greig and Alleyn Cook showed the plantings of species and some hybrids from the Greig collection. The magnificent plants of R. rex, R. auriculatum, and R. calophytum, R. forrestii var. repens, R. insigne, R. discolor, and R. decorum were particularly admired. A number of forms of R. augustinii and R. glacum were at their best, as were R. wardii, R. litiense, and some of their hybrids.
