Part of the familiar say- bigger they come, the bawl". Why Not Nexf Year. By Bill Smith Last spring the plea was made: "Plant Pink Petunias---Help Dress Up The City For The Sil-Ten- nial." A majority of Mount Pulaski householders answered the call, and all summer beds of the offic- ial celebration flower have added a touch of additional beauty to our city's residential areas. Sever- al businessmen had fine displays of petunias set up around the square, too. Some of the petunia plantings are very artistic in design. Others are simple beds of blooms. But each one has helped bring addi- tional color to the city. That the request to dress up the city with petunias met with near- universal response is but another testimony to the community spir- it that made the Sil-Tennial a Success. Soon the chilly fall winds and frosts will bring an end to the blossoms that have decorated Mt. Pulaski all summer. Many people have remarked that they hate to see the gorgeous displays disap- pear. Now the suggestion has been advanced that the planting of pe- tunias could become an annual event, and that Mount Pulaski be known as the "City of Petunias". Our city has long bean known for its attractive, well-kept yards and homes. Something like this could add a touch of distinction and beauty that within a few ,ears would become a tradition. Visitors to the city could spend many pleasant momelats in the residential district admiring the many displays. And neighbors could find pleasant rivalry trying to outdo each other with their petunia plantings. The "City of Petunias" idea could easily be carried over to the business district where per- manent planters would burst forth with blossoms.  would add much to the pleasant setting already created by the green vel- vet of the Court House square. It's an idea worth coasidering!
