Pioneers Feted
by Kennewick
Business Girls '
Experiences Related of
Kennewick’s Earliest
Days; Costumes Worn
About thirty Kennewlck pioneers
were guests of honor at a' banquet
tendered them by the Business and
Professional Women’s club Mon
day evening at the Arrow Grill. The
occasion was to wind up the club's‘
study project for the year: “Our
Town's Business.” ‘
The guests all had records of con-‘
tinuous residence of 30 years or
more. the longest being that of C. C.‘
Williams and Mrs. R. E. Red, who
came to Kennewick in 1902. i
To recall the early days, some of
the guests were brought to the ban-‘
quet in an old surrey drawn by a
couple of mules. The coachman,‘
Herbert Malchow, was suitably at-{
tired in a silk hat and frock coat,‘
and his passengers got quite a thrill
out of the experience.
Several of the business girls were
attired in pioneer costumes. which
added color to the affair. The table
decorations. miniature covered wag
ons. were cleverly done and were
the work of Glee Miller.
’l'he guests were asked to recall
some of their early day experiences
and the recounting conjured up
memories of the happenings in the
community thirty years or more
ago. One particularly interesting
story was told by Dr. L. G. Spauld
ing concerning his first trip to the‘
Horse Heaven country. He was
called to officiate at a birthday par-1
ty, got lost in the hills and at day-l
light found he had been driving in
circles and was traveling most of the
night in sight of the house he was
looking for.
His driver on this occasion was
“Penny” Ferrell, who added to the
story by telling about the doctor's
next .call which was at a home in‘
the hills where four members of the‘
family were down with typhoid fe
ver. Penny said that the doctor re-(
mained in the hills caring for this
family with no help, no facilities‘
nor conveniences for several days,‘
doing all the required work alone.
He brought the four through the
seige with no ill effects and thereby
gained no small reputation as a
skillful practicioner.
Two trumpet solos by E. A. Mc-
Dowell and a couple of numbers by
the girls’ sextet furnished the re
mainder of the program which was
thoroly enjoyed by the group. The
sextet, appearing for the first time
.in public, is composed of the Misses
Helen Steiner, Eva Elefson, Virginia
Carpenter. Verdella Mueller. Olive
Brue and Glee Miller. Miss Mueller
acted as chairman for the evening.
Stamp Sales Up
Seven Percent
Over Last Year
Stamp sales in the Kennewick
postoffice are still showing a steady
gain, according to information re
ceived today from Postmaster F. H.
Lincoln. He reports that the' first
quarter of this year showed a gain‘
of seven percent over the first quar
ter of last year and more than a ten‘
percent gain over the record of two
years ago. Total - stamp sales for
the quarter this year amounted to
Later delivery hours on the rural
routes is explained by the fact, Mr.
Lincoln says, that volume of mail
being handled is also steadily in
creasing, which has necessitated a}
change from eight to 8:30 in the
leaving hour. \ ‘
He also states that if any stampl
collectors did not get a supply of
army and Navy or Hawaiian Com
memorative stamps, they can still be
purchased locally.

Cut Necessary
By County Welfare
\ Old Age Assistance
Grants Reduced by the‘
1 State Office
This summer it will not be pos
sible to give direct assistance to
able-bodied employable men or to
their families. WPA replacements
will be made instead of giving di
rect relief and this means that those
men now on WPA must make in
creased efforts to find other work,
according to Mrs. Fern T. Massie,
Acting Administrator, Benton Co.
Welfare Department.
In line with the need for curtail
ment. no action has been taken by
the state office on increases request
ed for Old Age Assistance recipients
as of April lst. New grants and re
instatements have been decreased
$5 in all cases where the request
was for sls a month or more. Re
quests of sll to sl4 were paid $lO
and requests of $lO and less were
paid as recommended.
As explained in a previous article
it is necessary that an. applicant to
be eligible for old age assistance
must be in need of such basic items
as food. clothing and shelter. They
must need these from the stand
point that neither the applicants
or relatives are capable of supply
ing these items.
