Nancy Gill, President Mrs. James Liggett,Editor'


Our season will soon be in full bloom and our regional show will be upon us! But before all the "fun" begins, we have one more general meeting Tuesday April 6th at 7:30 p.m. at the Upper Arlington Municipal Services Building. We will have a grooming and staging workshop for our newer exhibitors. And, for our experienced exhibitors, Handy Hat-field will demonstrate his method of "dry packing" blooms for show transportation.

All rotating trophies must be returned by this meeting.... eleaned and polished! The calling committee will call with the meeting, show, and post-show details in a few weeks. They will not be recalling you before the show! And, there will be no written invitations to our out-of-town members. Consider this newsletter your notification.

This will be my last letter as your president. The past two years have been an enjoyable I'll never forget. We all share the "yellow fever", a disease I am sure there is not cure for, but enjoy its beauty! I hope all of you will offer your help and support to your new Executive Board.


The nominating committee submits the following names:

President: Ruth Pardue Vice-President: Donna Dietsch Secretary: Mary Edwards Treasurer: Grace Baird

Upon awakening to a bright sunshiny day, airline flights were cancelled, and a decision made to drive South. Into Naomi's Honda, with entries in hand, we headed for the big time country music center of the world, Nashville, the site of the 27th Annpal Convention of ADS.

CODS was well represented by Wells and Mary Knierim, Grace Baird, "Tag" Bourne, Handy Hatfield, Naomi Liggett, Peggy Macneale, Bill and Flossie Schrader, Cecile Spitz and Pat Zwilling

Early the next morning we headed for Botanic Hall at Cheekwood where entries were being accepted. Grace, Handy and Naomi began preparing their entries in the grooming rooms. The Middle Tennessee Daffodil Society are most fortunate to have such an outstanding facility for staging their shows. Complimenting the daffodils were many beautiful flowering plants, works of art, and flower arrangements by Ikebana International, Chapter 5 of Nashville.

Still without breakfast, we headed for Franklin, Tennessee site of a great battle be-tween the Confederates and Union forces, and home of Mary Lou Gripshover, charter member of CODS. Driving along the highways of the Middle Tennessee Valley searching for the correct route to Franklin, we enjoyed the redbud and dogwood in bloom, fields of wild flowers and majestic estates. Franklin has a renovation program underway with interesting shops and restaurants.

A ground-breaking ceremony for the Louise Fort Hardison Daffodil Garden was held in the afternoon at Cheekwood. The recently deceased Louise was a prominent leader in both the American Daffodil Society and the Middle Tennessee Daffodil Society as well as an excellent grower and exhibitor. It was her wish that this garden be established.

The show participants from CODS excelled. Mary Lou Gripshover took the coveted Gold Quinn Medal, only awarded at ADS National shows. Her beautifully grown and well staged exhibit won over 3 other prominent exhibitors. The coup d' etat was defeating Bill Pannill, who staged 24 of his own introductions ... a most difficult feat. Mary Lou won the ADS Purple Ribbon with a collection of 5 triandrus daffodils (Moonshine 5 W-W, Stint 5 Y-Y, Arish Mell 5 W-W, Johanna 5 Y-Y and Silver Bells 5 W-W,- and also, the Silver Ribbon with 10 blues.

The prestigious Matthew Fowlds Silver Medal for the best standard cyclamineus in the show was won by Handy Hatfield with a bloom of Ibis 6 W-Y.

Naomi Liggett won the Miniature Gold Ribbon for the best miniature with a delightful Candlepower 1 W-W.

Some of the girls from Columbus assisted Peter Ramsey of New Zealand in sorting, staging and placement of Father A. Buchholz's daffodils. It was interesting to see the great cultural differences, viz., size of bloom, depth of color, length of stem of these Oregon-grown culti- vars. For our taste, we felt they lost refinement in being so large. Evidently this did not affect the judges decisions in that Father Buchholz won the Green Ribbon with a collection of Galahad 2 Y-Y, Dynamite 2 W-O, Golden Aura 2 Y-Y, Space Age 2 Y-Y, Empress of Ireland 1 W-W, Merry Bells 5 W-Y, Frolic 1 W-Y, Eastertide 4 Y-Y, Arkle 1 Y-Y, Golden Rapture 1 Y-Y, Crater 2 Y-GRR, and Arbar 2 W-0.

His Balalaika 2 Y-YYR (Richardson 1956), which is presently available for $1.50, was awarded the ADS Gold Ribbon for t
