The meeting will be the last for the current season. By Jan Dunford THE PICTURED POOCH is, perhaps, the only pup in Mason County who has a partial plate. Her anguished owner, unable to wear the contraption, is determined that the investment shall not be wasted. Cries the canine: "This shouldn't happen to a dog!" How can a smile In beauty wreathe The sorry face That has no teeth? In the tender agonies of anticipation 1 have endured a dozen times the day whose dire reality can no longer be denied. There comes a time in the life of many a woman when she looks into her miserable mirror and says: "yyuhk." She turns wretchedly away from her gaping grin and the flabby folds of her collapsing face and in despair whispers softly to herself the dreaded word: "dentures." My invitations read: "Your presence is requested at a denture dinner to be given on the umpteenth of June out back of the barn. It is suggested that boots and old clothing be worn, as inclement weather may make it necessary to hold the gathering in the house." Those of you who do not receive invitations may count yourselves among the more fortunate. I intend to serve a sloppy buffet of clear soups and thin gruels, and in lieu of a festive cake 1 plan to prepare a large soft pudding topped with my departed teeth and inscribed with the 'wavering whipped cream words "Goodbye, old friends." Like stars in the infinite meadows My molars, one by one, Have blossomed but briefly to wither Away until there are none. The succulent steak was elusive; I dined on porridges thin; But 1, with a great sense of humor Could still face the world with a grin. But now my front teeth are defecting With laughter forbidden to me, And the teeth of maturity beckon, Smiling in ready-made glee. Dusty Miller Is Versatile In Plantings The silvery-gray or velvety white of dusty miller foliages have a dual use in the flower garden. On the one hand they may be used in masses to contrast with any flower color that is so brilliant it otherwise would need to be alone, Without other colors near it. On the other, they can be massed between 2 flower colors that clash and, 1o, there will be a blending of hues. Why these differing effects? Because the su~fages of dusty miller leaves, covered with long hairs, absorb some of the brilliant color and make it more "amenable". Some of the dusty millers you should consider using in your garden are described below: Widely available is Centaurea gymnocarpa, the tallest dusty miller, to 2' in height. A perennial in mild climates it is treated as an annual in the North. It has the largest, most coarsely cut leaves of the group; is handsome in the flower border. Diamond has. much whiter leaves, grows only 10 inches tall and forms a more compact plant. It is a fine companion to lower growing plants and is pretty with colorful flowers in window boxes. Still smaller is Silver Dust, 8 inches high and compact in form. The effect of a group planting is well expressed by the variety name-so lace-like are the leaves. Silver Queen is a similar variety from France. Both grow well and look exotic in large pots or other containers. The dwarfest dusty millers are candidissima and Frosty, both with white leaves and a snowy appearance. All these plants produce flowers but, because most of them are insignificant, plants should be considered valuable for leaves alone. Professional gardeners remove flower buds as they appear. Seeds are planted one sixteenth inch deep in any growing medium preferred, in February or March; kept at 50 to 60 degrees. When large enough, transplant seedlings to 3 inch pots. Set in a cold frame in April, in the garden in May. Hunter Admitted William O. Hunter, Rt. 5, has been admitted to Washington State University for the fall semester.

They now reside on a lovely acre on S~tfetch Island, where lawns rolling gently to the beach are studded with dwarf fruit trees and blooming plants surround a charming home. Mrs. Hillman was born in Iceland. She moved to Canada as a small child and eventually took up residence in Tacoma, coming to Grapeview in 1932 after a brief residence in Seattle. At one time the Hillmans maintained a large greenhouse as a hobby and grew an extensive garden. Horticultural activities are now centered on azaleas and roses, peonies and camellias, with summer annuals filling flower beds. For-16 years, Peggy' Hillman was a cook at the Grapeview Elementary School. She is now a member of Sarah Eckert Orthopedic Guild. The Hillmans have a daughter, three grandchildren and one great-grandson. MRS. PEGGY HILLMAN tends the peonies and azaleas that beautify the grounds of her Stretch Island home.
