SEVENTH AND EIGHTtl, GRADES By Rene 7Yerkins Our trip to the State Capitol at Olympia March 5 was an inter- esting and thrilling educational experience. It is hard to realize that within a comparatively few miles of our lovely forested area stands such a striking example of architecture which is noted as one of the most beautiful legislative buildings in the nation. Forty-two steps from the ground to the entrance of the Capitol re- mind us that Washington was the forty-second state admitted to the union. Six huge doors, each weigh- ing five tons and depicting Wash- ington industries are at the en- trance. In the rotunda is tile Great Seal nf the State of Washington. Above it hangs an enormous chandelier weighing six and one-half tons. including the chain by which it hangs. The chain alone weighs one and one-half tons and is 101 feet in length. The Capitol is constructed pri.n- cipally of beautiful marble. The marble in the rotunda came from Alaska; that in the senate cham- ber was quarried in Germany; the marble in thc house of representa- tives was shipped from France. Its!fan marble was used in the State reception room. The blocks were so perfectly joined that it appears to have pictures in it. In the State reception room where dignitaries are received is a gorgeous carpet 55!/2 x 25 feet in size. It was woven entirely in one piece with no seams whatever. This is truly an original as the pattern was destroyed soon after its completion. AMONG THE beautiful furnish- ings in the state reception room is a romd walnut table, its pedestal ma from a solid block of wood wit', intricate ornamental carv- ings. Also in this room is displayed the original VVa,:bing; on state flag. The backgr: ,m(i was changed to green m 1925. tIOME ECONOMICS In the last twelve weeks of school the home economics clas- ses will be very busy.
