"WESTlgRN WASHINGTON" by Mrs. Ella BroughtOn Adams Age 92 Oh, Washington fair, with her mountains and plains, Her rich fertile valleys and soft failing rains, Causing gardens to flourish and lettuce to grow, And flowers to blossom wherever you go. " Take a ride on the water, the lily iS seen, Reposing so gently above leaves of green In the woods in the Springtime, the state flower is there Yes, the rhododendron, so lovely and fair. Various flowers with bright colors blooming side by side Can be seen by the highway as you take a ride Lofty trees looming upward, the fir and the pine And o in the clearings, the black- berry vine. Yielding fruit for the people and also the bear Who, on special occasions, is seen roaming there And if he should tarry, determined to stay We pick up our buckets and hasten away. All kinds of weather in our state is found, Snow covered mountain peaks all the year 'round But in our great valleys with man- tle of green Fast falling snowflakes seldom are seen. And now to the tourists, we wel- come yOU all, Come summer and winter, spring- time or fall. To see our great cities, our rivers and lakes, Fleet Reserve Honors Don Willson At Fri. Pot Luck Dinner Meet A pot luck dinner honoring Mr. and Mrs. Don Wilison was held last Friday evening by the U. S. Navy Fleet Reserve Branch and Unit 170 at the home of Mr. and Mrs. C. C.

During the evening the group gave the honorees gifts and ex- pressed their appreciation to the W/llsons for their loyalty to the branch and Unit 170. Tualco Grange Sets Contest Judging Date Subordinate judging in prepara- tion for the Grange national sew- ing contest is scheduled this Sat- urday at the Tualco Grange Hall. Time set is 8 p.m. The public is invited to attend the judging. And our neat summer cottages, covered with shakes. Glance up towards the hillside, there's many a scene, Where the houses are nestling mid foliage green Where the voice of the meadowlark often is heard And the chirping and singing of many a bird. The crowing of roosters rind the cackling of hens, And cattle and sheep in pastures and pens. Ducks, geese and turkeys, in some places found, And many great fishes are caught in the sound. This country is surely a wonderful sight, Whether traveling in daytime or travelling at night, And one thing in closing we wish to relate, Washington is truly an Evergreen state.
