No. 11

Report of National Apple Day Trophy Committee
Frank E. Wagner, Chairman

In September of this year,
following the splendid discussion
at the Boston Convention, the
Executive Committee voted to
award a Silver Cup, known as
National Apple Day Trophy, “TO
THE CITY HOLDING THE
BEST CELEBRATION OF NA-
TIONAL APPLE DAY FROM
THE STANDPOINT OF POPU-
LARIZING THE APPLE AND
INCREASING CONSUMP-
TION.” So far all was well, but
thereafter President Pennington,
evidently with malicious intent,
appointed Mr. C. H. Weaver, Mr.
C. A. Kerr and myself as the
Committee of Award, and, as The
Spy has well said, placed us in a
position similar to that of Bel-
gium on August 1st.

Interest was keen and rivalFrank E. Wagner, Chicago ry intense. The reports were very comprehensive and extensive and were fortified by photographs, certificates and other exhibits, conclusively showing the really remarkable efforts put forth on National Apple Day. Our great regret is that they cannot be examined at length by every member. They afford a liberal education on the possibilities of the day. The following cities participated in the contest:

Cincinnati, Ohio Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania Lincoln, Nebraska Springfield, Massachusetts Buffalo, New York Baltimore, Maryland

Portsmouth, Ohio Rochester, New York

Nashville, Tennessee Chicago, Illinois

Forth Worth, Texas Cleveland, Ohio

Denver, Colorado New York City

Evansville, Indiana Springfield, Illinois

Des Moines, Iowa St. Louis, Missouri

Council Bluffs, Iowa Portland, Oregon

Portland, Maine Los Angeles, California

Detroit, Mich. Atlanta, Georgia

Kansas City, Missouri Davenport, Iowa

Omaha, Nebraska Waterloo, Iowa

Columbus, Ohio New Orleans, Louisiana

Toledo, Ohio Boston, Massachusetts

Memphis, Tennessee
