Before any more important information is deleted from the "Rose" magazine, ARS is reminded of one of magazines prime purposes. As ARS chairman of registration stated several times, the "International Registration of New Rose Varieties" column in "The Rose magazine" is established to provide information to ARS members on new registrations".
In 1981 ARS was appointed resistor for CIOPORA, as registrar assumed worldwide responsibilities. Typical to noting changes to registered and non-registered roseÃ¯Â¿Â½s, along with assuring notification of these changes are published first in The American Rose magazine, CIOPORA Rose Register, than the Rose Annual and Modern Roses.
In the ARS Classification CommitteeÃ¯Â¿Â½s charter,notes itÃ¯Â¿Â½s there responsible for investigating and correcting errors in classifications, along with proper notification in The American Rose magazine. Also changes in a classification should-not be made without the ARS Classification CommitteeÃ¯Â¿Â½s prior approval, based on the oldest literature contemporary with a cultivarÃ¯Â¿Â½s introduction.
Before ARS slides deeper into the hole its digging, reestablishes some of its communication credibility with members. Has ARS CommitteeÃ¯Â¿Â½s charters been revised, reflecting these changes?
