BIG DAY FOR CURIO HUNTER WHEN FAMOUS ELM IS CUT

Curio collectors will be wide awake during the next week or more because the Washington Elm on Garden Street will be cut down, if the action of the Cambridge park commissioners and Mayor Edward W. Quinn at a recent meeting is followed out. Although the tree will be carefully cut up and a piece sent to each state of the country and to the District of Columbia and Alaska, chips, perhaps sawdust, will be available for the nervy collector. The tree has been pronounced dead by a tree specialist and its overhanging limbs a menace. The seal of the city of Cambridge will be engraved on one side of each piece of wood sent out while an appropriate inscription will be on the other.
