Mrs. Hallman said that camellias

right care. In planting, dig the hole
twice as wide and deep as roots of
the plant. Save top half of soil re-

Plant the camellias on a mound of

Use a special camellia and azalea

prominent and dignified citizens
may be observed "walking sitting
down" as they go to and from their
