Circus Unloading
There’s scarcely a veteran or
service man who won't endorse
the belligerent intent of Irving
Berlin, who during the first world
war sang,.“oh, how Ihate to get
up in the .morning.” And ended
with the threat: “And then I’ll
find the dirty pup, the guy who
gets the bugler up."
But there’s one reveille that ne
ver fails to get upthe most deter
mined late'sleeper.‘ That’s the ciré'
cus coming to town.
About six o’clock o’ the morning
of Sunday, Aug. 18, the Cole Bros.
circus train will come to Kenne
wick, and enough residents of the
city have declared their inten
tion to be on hand that restaur
ant owners of the town have ar
ranged to'stay open and supfiy
breakfasts for the members of , e
“Circus Breakfast Club." Thu:

There are no club dues or initia

watch the circus unload. Manag
ers of the big show are delighted
with the idea, and have invited
the public not only to watch the
unloading but to drive on up to
the circus grounds, south of the
old grade school building between
Washington street and Park View
Homes, and see the big top go up.
So, set the alarm for 5:30, Maw,

Smedley, founder of Toastmasters.
Speaks'al Richland Charter High! _
“Learn to listen to the man
who has listened to you” was the
advice toastmastprs of Kenne
wick, Pasco, Walla Walla and
other Washington ”cities heard
Monday evening from their
founder, Ralph C. Smedley of
Santa Ana, Calif., on the occasion
of the, Richland Toastmasters’
charter night at the recreation
hall in Richland.
Harking back to the beginning
of the organization, which dates
officially from 1922, Smedley said
that the actual inception of Toast
masters International occurred
much earlier, in a little Illinois
town in 1905. ,
“We needed- some way to teach
our high school students to speak
in public," Smedley remembered,
“and when we organized a group
someone suggested the name of
Long active in YMCA work,
Smedley moved to Freeport, Ill
inois in 1907 or 1908. Bringing the
idea of his high school toastmas
ters group to the attention of the
school authorities for their ap
proval, he was surprised to dis
cover that the adult leaders ot the
community wanted to undertake
the project for themselves.
In Freeport for the first time,
Smedley was able to gauge the
value of his idea in developinc
the natural but latent abilities of
men, who had been already esp
tablished in community life.
“That’s one of the finest aspects
of participation in Toasunasteu.”
Smedley told his audience, “we

There is the example of the Ray
Marsh farm, southeast of Kenne

Ray and John Marsh, are flowing

apples to all parts of the United
States and to Canada.
If an industrialist were to visit
the packing shed at the rear of the
Ray Marsh home, he would judge
it to be a smallopration. Still, as
he traveled through the miles of
fertile Washington countryside
and its variegated growth of farm
produce, he would begin to grasp
the strength and stability of an
area that depends, not on a single
product, but on many. Not on sev

many small ones.
