Clarence, this is really getting interesting!  I have always been very
attracted to HELEN COLLINGWOOD, as well as WABASH, and now I see (simplified
version--WABASH begat HELEN COLLINGWOOD, which begat ELIZABETH NOBLE).  So
are all 3 of these recessive amoenas?  And eastern hybridizers' creations, to
boot.  Very interesting--did anything follow ELIZABETH NOBLE?  Guess I should
find a list of Kenneth Smith's intros...
