THE PARK-LIKE GARDEN created by Dottie Hurley flourishes where at one time not a thing would grow.

Last week I made an exception. "This gentleman is an intellectual," I was told, "and he wants to meet you. He is starved for intelligent female companionship, and he is certain that you'll prove to be a stimulating conversationalist." much as I do." "Ha. I have a great sense of humor. Ha." "I understand you are a good dancer," I offered hopefully as the music started. "Yes. 1 am an excellent dancer. However, 1 am suffering with a seige of the gout so you will excuse me." "Of course," I agreed, as 1 rose to dance with a beckoning Hallmark Inn will be Mrs. Doris Loomis.

What gardener could resist such a challenge? During the drilling of a 90 foot well, the seal in the first vein, struck at 30 feet, was broken. Although capped eight separate times, water still escaped. From this beginning originated the pond that landscapes the miniature beauty spot that lies in Dottle Hurley's back yard. She started the digging of the informal pool and her husband completed the job. Beyond the water plants, rocks, driftwood and ornamental objects create a tiny vista. Water now circulates in an upper level creating a waterfall. It is Mrs. Hurley's pride that few of her materials were purchased. A huge transformer has been fashioned into a fountain; a grill from an old stove furnishes wrought-iron decor for a low bench; old sinks form planters. Upright sewer pipes stand at three differing heights, bearing plants. "I visit the dump," says Dottie Hurley, "and come home with all sorts of treasures." With an imaginative eye and a skilled hand she turns junk into art objects. Colorful plastic can-tops dangle from branches in the manner of oriental lanterns, and from varied materials she creates wind chimes. Among her hand-mades is a string of cans, graduated in size and variegated in color. She owns at least 15 wind chimes, some of which she has received as gifts. Many rockery plants flourish in her small park-like garden, and in early spring primroses, pansies, iris and bulb flowers supply riots of color. In the evening the area sparkles in the glow of many tiny lights strung in a centrally located tree. Between her trailer home and the Drive-In is another small green garden rich in driftwood and rare horticultural specimens. Marguerites and gerberas, flowering kale and cabbage in unbelievable hues, grow happily beside better-known blooms. Fuschia baskets and potted tree-fuschias surround her place of 'business and her home. She winters them over, often without pruning back. The resulting plants are huge and healthy and bear masses of blossoms. She grows house plants, also. She owns four canines, which are she says, "just dogs, except for Tipperel, who might be half In a double ring ceremony at Lake Cushman resort on June 28, Bonita Cecilia Roosa of Hoodsport daughter ,of Mr. and Mrs. Harold Rosengrant of Binghamton, N.Y., became the bride of Jonathon W.

I was assured that he was not only tall, dark, handsome and wealthy but was, as well., a marvelous dancer with a terrific sense of humor. How could I lose? When we were introduced the following evening he bowed deeply over my trembling hand and led me to a quiet corner. "1 am very intelligent," he announced. "I can converse on any subject. What would you like to discuss?" "Well. gee whiz." 1 said, "I hate to appear at a disadvantage, but I must confess to being your inferior. There are at least two or three subjects upon which I am not an authority." "You need not apologize," he said kindly. "All women are inferior. I expect that. Choose a. subject." "Horses?" I suggested. "Ah, yes, Horses. You have, of course, seen the Lipizzans?" "Well, no," I admitted, "Only in pictures; but I've read a lot about them." "They are the most intelligent horses in the world," he informed me. "I don't believe that," I stated, "I attribute their fabulous performance to years of selective breeding plus intensive and highly-specialized training." "I SAID," he emphasized, "that they were more intelligent than other horses." "I know you did," 1 replied, "but I happen to disbelieve it. Cutting cattle takes a lot of intelligence, too. A beautifully trained Lipizzan might well come a cropper on a cattle drive." "I take it you own Western horses. Do you actually think your mongrel stock can compare in brain-power to a 1Jpizzan?" "Absolutely!" I returned. "One of my horses is smarter than you are. He knows almost as .FAT Odrin~x can help you be~ome the trim slim person you want to be.

I queried sweetly. "I loathe that, too," he growled. "I fox-trot." "I like all kinds of dancing," I said ha ppily. He looked at his watch. "Do you realize," he said sternly, "that I've spent a half-hour with you and already you've disagreed with me twice?" "Really?" I marveled. "Only twice? "I would like to have an intellectual conversation with you ', he continued unsmilingly. "Will you kindly keep quiet and refrain from these annoying interruptions?" "Yessir."

Both are gold medal winners. They're dwarf, they're decorative and they're delightful. Except for flower color they are twins - dwarf, bushy, very early to start blooming, free-flowering all summer and "self-cleaning" because the new leaves cover the older flowers. Both are first generation hybrids, grow from 10 to 12 inches tall, have blooms from 3 to 4 inches in diameter and start to blossom when only 6 inches high. Even their colors contrast beautifully although you'd never guess it from the written description. Peter Pan Pink has coral pink blossoms which become two-toned as they age; salmon-rose in the center while the outer petals retain their coral pink hue. Peter Pan Plum, striking when planted with Peter Pan Pink, has flowers described variously as lavender-rose or rosy purple, in other words, a believable plum color. Petals of flowers of both varieties are slightly curled and the flower forms vary from plant to plant; some are cactus type with pointed petals, some Dance Scheduled By Moose Lodge Moose Lodge No. 1684 will hold a dance in the lodge at the airport from 9:30 p.m. until 2 a.m. Saturday.
