Trip To Republic Of China Willbm Ande00 ! Dr. Steven Blizzard, assistant director and field research coordinator for the Division of Plant Sciences of Wet Virginia University, spoke on his recent trip to the Peoples Republic of China at the luncheon meeting of the Ladies Auxiliary to the W. Va. Horticultural Society January 25, in the afternoon, at Trinity U.M. Church in Mar- tinsburg. With the use of slides, Dr. Blizzard gave an informative and interesting account of this country where he studied, lec- tured and toured, representing West Virginia. The speaker compared Red China with the U.S. in size, population ' precipitation, climate and diet. He noted that 78 percent of all agriculture in China is devoted to starch foods, with only two percent fruits and vegetables. As there is little or no refrigeration, all produce must move rapidly from the field to the consumer, and the various slides traced these steps. It was interesting to see large quantities of crates tied to bicycles and hand or horse cards going to market. Dr. Blizzard informed the group that the bicycle is the most popular mode of travel there, and his slides Presents Program For Wayside Garden Club Wayside Garden Club held its December meeting at the home of Mrs. James Moler, Monday, December 19 with 17 members present.

It was noted that only for the garden club convention about 20 percent of the country next March, and these should be can be used for agriculture, and in by February. Mrs. Carl the quality of the food is far below that in the U.S. The business session in the afternoon was highlighted by the installation of officers by Mr. Kenneth McDonald, a past president of the auxiliary. The new officers are -- Mrs. Otho Lewis, president; Mrs. Jerry Hockman, vice-president; Mrs. Arthur Blizzard, secretary; and Mrs. Roger S. Young, treasurer. The group was fortunate to have as a special guest Julie Slonaker of Inwond, the W. Va. Horticultural Princess. Miss Slonaker related to the ladies of her experience in the Miss Apple Queen USA contest in Get- tysburg, Pa. It was noted that while appearing there, she was chosen Miss Congeniality by the other contestants. Mrs. James E. McDonald gave the welcome to the group in a delightful verse form and Mrs. Robert Hockensmith gave the invocation for the enjoyable creamed chicken lunch, prepared by the Women of Trinity Church.
