A number of contributions have come in for the Robert S. Carney Memorial Fund. These will be set aside until the committee working on the matter of suitable memorials for American Iris Society's outstanding personalities has prepared its report and it has been approved by the Board. Those wishing to send contributions for this fund may send them to Dr. Chester G. Allen, 608 West Drive, Memphis, Tennessee 38112. Certainly a memorial in honor of 'Bob" Carney, a president who gave of himself unstintingly for the benefit of irises and the American Iris Society, is in good order.²
