H. Stougard, Caretaker of the Sam i Houston Home, Huntsville, Tex- !as, eighteen pecan trees which were grown from the original tree planted by Sam Houston at Huntsville almost one hundred years ago. Request was made for these trees by Superinten- dent M. P. Willis. The trees have already been put out on the elementary school campus where much care is being taken to keep them intact At about the same time last i year eighteen other trees from this same stock were received and planted on the high school campus.
