The Close family were checking on their cattage, with thought in mind of readying it for occupancy in the near future. AND WHILE THIS LOCAL correspondent is trying" vainly to type off a few items of news for Union eolumn--a highly diverting eonversaton in muted tones is being carried on close by--as for instance quote---"Carstasen' lake was full, there were 14 boats, out, all fishing." Also quote, "why we had our limit in an hour", also "Bill got several 12 and 14 inch cutthroat", and also, "use a small red spoon or spinner and worm". Now if this isn't disconcerting-- add the last words heard---"O.

And in less than a half hour the two fishermen with rain gear on left with tee pram in back of the car, for a lake, they had discussed, and of all things in another sudden shower, both fishermen laughing over the matter, and we having to set aside the writing attempt to join in with them. You can't ever predict what these fishing fellows or the weather will, or won't do. They returned in a couple or three hours, each with a nice catch of trout. MR. AND MRS. HERB ALLEN received a long distance message from Mr. A. C. Mercier from HemaL, Calif., stating that Doro- thy Mercier, his wife, had been injured in a fall while playing shuffleboard, and as a conse- quence removed to the hospital at that place, on Sunday a week ago.

PHONE 426-4702 "This the greatest age God has ever given people to live in," Dr. Franklin Thompson, president of the University of Puget Sound told the audience at the banquet honor- ing the top seniors in the Irene S. Reed graduating class last week. The young people who are at the top of the high school gradu- ating classes will be the distin- guished leaders of tomorrow, he said. and they can carve their own destiny in the fields opened up by the progress of science. THERE HAS BEEN MORE progress made in the last 60 years than in all the rest of man's history, he said and commented that 90 per cent of the scientists who have ever lived are alive to- day. The genius of America is its educational system which produ- ces these young people, with the desire to do things, he said. Edu- cation is changing in the atti- tude of today's young people, le said. with the emphasis coming stronger on scholarship. The era in which we live will probably be known as one of the great eras of world histo, "the time when knowledge exploded. The 32 seniors who have main- tained a 13 or better average in their high school work were rec- ognized at the banquet, and were introduced by Miss Margaret Baldwin.
