remains to her home at Ruff, Wash.,

est, a boy, only three months old.

the coming year discussed. The menu
for the big feed is as follows:

will enjoy themselves as usual, but this
time without the admiring gaze of the
public, as most of the shooting will be
done inside at the banquet table. We

from Cady Pass has been engaged
