Cantabrigians Wilt, Azaleas Bloom
With the hot, humid temperature yesterday soaring to 89, the hundreds of azaleas at the Arnold Arboretum blossomed out to provide an appropriate setting for nature lovers (left). In addition to the azaleas from china, Korea, Japan, Europe, and parts of North America, more than 500 varieties of Iilacs are now in bloom.
But the weatherman has predicted that the sunny weather, like the reading period, will end today with thunderstorms this afternoon and tonight which should make the setting of the glass flowers at the University Museum more appropriate. A few hearty folk (right) were even in attendance there yesterday afternoon despite the fact that the temperature yesterday was only two degree off the record 91 set in 1936. By night, the temperature had punged to a "cool" 76.
