RIVALRY
The banquet was well attended,
and the Seattle guests managed to
sneak over frequent mention of the
scenic beauties of Mount Rainier,
much to the annoyance of their
hosts. In fact, before the evening
was over, Dolly was promised a pic
ture of Mount Rainier by the Se
attle chapter, and a pieture of
Mount Tacoma by the Tacoma chap
ter.
Another bit of pleasantry in
volved masters of ceremonies at
soclal functions. One prominent
Tacoman maintained that a master
of ceremonies was always a very
|clever fellow, one able to bring out
|the best in-everyone present, to see
that the hungry were dined and the
thirsty were drunk (pardon-—we‘
mean wined), and the tired retlred.‘
Beaniing seft-cousclously. Connie
was about to announce the next
Ispeuker when his conscience hurt
him. He said he overheard a Se
|al(le man give a very different defi
:nltion of a master of ceremonies
that very evening, and to forestall
his telling it, would beat him to
the draw:
JUST PUNK
“When | was a kid, we bought
our frecrackers for the Fourth of
July from an old man who always
gave us a bit of punk to light off
our pyrotechnics. Now, to me, a
master of ceremonies always re
minds me of that incident. He is
just the little punk that sets off the
fireworks.”
Be that as it may, the affair was
one of the most pleasant she had
attended, Dolly Secord said as she
presented Forrest Mulnix with the
sunflower in her bouquet,
“l like flowers,” she told him,
“that is, all but sunflowers. I under
stand you are quite fond of them,
Mr. Mulnix.”
“Mul” grinned and took it stand
ing up.
NOTABLES PRESENT
Many prominent members of the
Tacoma and Seattle chapters were
there, among them being Pauline
Poage, president ©of the Tacoma
Chapter No. 1 of the Disabled
American Veterans, in duty pink
pe; Ethel Mulnix, in royal blue;
Mary Vowell, chaplain, “or

Warden, official toymaker for the

stone, black silk; and Verna Mar
low, state president of the Auxil
iary, in royal blue crepe with gar
denias, The guest of honor, Dolly
Secord, was lovely in moss-green
velvet.
Several clever musical numbers
were given during the evening. At
the close of the banquet, Mary Vow
ell presented Mrs. Hicks with a
Gold Star pin as a gift from the
ladies of the Tacoma Chapter.
Knew His Snoose
During the Indian War in 1882,
General Sherman was one day vis
iting Camp Apache in Arizona. A
‘blg. raw-boned redskin, captain of
the scouts, kept following the gen
eral all afternoon, pleading for a
small caanon which was standing
on the parade ground.
Exagperated, Sher mae finally
said to-the Indian:
“What. do you want with that
cannon, anyway? Do you want to|
kill my soldier with it "
“No,” replied the Indian mildly, 1
“me kill cowboys with it; kill the
soldiers with club.” |

GUESSED WRONG

~ After the people had made their

Enviable Reputation Established
by Joe Forkner in Chosen Field
It was in 1908 that Willard E.
Forkner started operating a funeral
parlor in the University district of
Seattle. It was a modest start, and
at a time when the district itself
boasted a population of some 8,000
persons. During 28 years of con
tinuous service, however, the estab
lishment has reached the point
where it is now one of the most im
portant in the Puget Sound area.
’Oflglnully confined to the Uni
versity district, the service rendered
by Forkner’'s has grown until it now
extends to all parts of the city.
Where the personnel numbered two
at the start, there are now ten ad
ministering to the wants of the be
reaved.
With the death of his father, Joe
R. Forkner took charge of the busi
ness and has been its active head
since that time. His intimate knowl
edge of the profession was gained
under the tutelage of his father.
A funeral director renders a valu
able and necessary service one
demanded by the standards of the
day. His establishment must be
one of beauty and dignity. Fork
ner's has attained that distinction
and has kept pace with the growth
of the city of which it has been an

The mast was used but once,
