Mrs. Ila Wheat was given the high score prize, Mrs. Lee Reynolds the cut prize and Mrs. Henry was presented a gift.
One hundred five redwood planters have been distributed in Conway this summer. They are planted with dwarf red cannas and Comanche petunias, Mrs. Edgar B. Parker of the City Beautiful said.
Mrs. Parker ordered the planters through the Idle Hour Florist and Greenhouse. She said 110 of the redwood tubs were bought by Conway business houses. The price of the planters was $11 each.
Of the original order 35 were returned to the Hurst, Texas, manufacturer for re-banding. Five more have been sent back recently.
The commission will probably plant greenery in the pots this fall, Mrs. Parker said. The beautification plan in Little Rock is being used as a blueprint for work in Conway.
