By VIRGINIA VALE WHEN Penny Singleton and Arthur Lake hit New York they just never stopped going; the stars of the movie’s “Blondie” series and the CBS Sunday show are popular young people, and some of the season’s nicest parties were given for them. “I haven’t seen anything of New York, really,” said Penny. “And what do you think happened to me?

He’s George Jenner, who was car riage footman to Queen Victoria for two years, 1892 to 1894, the period in which “The Imperfect Lady” is set. He met arriving foreign potentates and conducted them to Buckingham palace. So it’s practically type cast ing. * — “If at first you don’t succeed, try, try again” and think of Ray Mil land.

'T'HE Oregon country, including the most northwesterly portion of all, the present state of Wash ington, was the unwanted and all but-forgotten land of a little more than a century ago. Back East they felt that the Rocky mountains were the natural western boundary of the United States and refused to vote one cent for the development of a region so far away. There had been two wars with the British; why chance a third? Let the British have it. The United States had all the land it needed. But those thousands of pioneers who had urged their oxen along the Oregon trail and crawled over the mountains thought differently. They had found a good land, rich in beauty and vitality, where the mountains and forests came down to meet the Pacific ocean. The Brit ish wanted the country merely for trade with the Indians. The pioneers wanted it for their homes, their farms, their ranches, their dream cities. And they wanted it to be a part of the United States. They had traveled hundreds of weary miles, fighting Indians along the way, burying loved ones in un marked graves. And now they had cleared their land, built houses, planted crops, and knew they had found an area with resources so vast and varied that even they were be wildered by the prospects. Some how the East and Washington, D. C., must be told about it, made to believe. Washington finally heard, and the cry of “Fifty-four Forty or Fight” went up. The settlers cleaned their rifles and waited. If the British wanted war, they were ready. But war was averted by the treaty of 1846, in which joint American and British occupancy was ended. A compromise boundary of the 49th parallel was established, and the Oregon country became a part of the United States. The Columbia river, however, re mained a natural dividing line run ning through Oregon territory. The settlers “north of the river” want ed a territory of their own. As early -. ...

Power from this dam accounted for the major portion of aluminum for construction of our airplanes for the Army Air Forces during World War 11. as 1845 they had carved the area into two enormous counties, Lewis and Clark. More settlers were cross ing over and sentiment for a divi sion was evident. A group met at Cowlitz Prairie to memoralize con gress. They were not heard. They met again in 185? at Monticello and sent another petition to Washington. Joseph Lane, Oregon territorial delegate, offered his aid and intro duced a bill to organize the terri tory of Columbia, for that was to be its name. The bill was passed, but not before it was amended to change the name to Washington ter ritory. On March 2, 1853, just two days before he left the White House, Pres. Millard Fillmore signed it. Washington territory extended from the continental divide to the Pacific ocean, including what is now the northern part, or panhandle, of Idaho. But the settlers were not yet satisfied. Agitation for statehood be gan and continued for nearly 15 years. In 1889 they were successful and Pres. Grover Cleveland signed the bill—a month before he left the White House. At a convention in Olympia on July 4, that year, a con stitution was drawn up, and at an election on October 1 it was adopt ed by the citizens. A new man in ffiß - 'if * MIDLAND JOURNAL. RISING SUN.

WALLGREN Governor of Washington Born in Des Moines, lowa. Home town, Everett, Wash. For mer state representative and United States senator. the White House, Pres. Benjamin Harrison, issued a proclamation on November 11 that Washington was admitted as a state. When the Indian wars ended, the eastern part of the territory was opened to settlement and brought immediate prosperity throughout the Northwest. The arrival of the “Mercer Girls,” widows and or phans of the Civil war, provided wives for the territory’s excess male population. Railroads raced to reach the great empire, with new towns and settlements following the ribbons of steel. There was a severe set-back, however, when the new state was hard hit by depression and panic in 1893. Washington’s recovery was rapid, for its people were virile and deter mined. The Alaska gold rush of 1897 made Seattle the metropolis of the Northwest, and a few years later, in 1903, there was a mining boom at Spokane which tripled that city’s population. Ports and shipping grew rapidly on the coast. Fishing be came an important industry. Agri culture flourished and livestock in creased all over the state. Lum ber business and mining brought prosperity to thousands. The Evergreen state (or Chinook state) holds more than the majestic mountains, canyons, gorges, for ests, lakes and highways shown in a tourist folder. It is more than scenery. It is a land of vast natural resources, many of them as yet un developed or not fully utilized. Washington is rich in minerals coal, gold, silver, lead, mercury and zinc. It has clays, granite, sand stone, marble, limestone and ce ment. Also found in the state are antimony, arsenic, tungsten and platinum. Standing timber in Washington in cludes Douglas fir, yellow and white pine, spruce, larch, cedar and oth ers. Normally, Washington leads all states in lumber output, shipping its products all over the world. It has wood pulp and paper mills as well as other industries built on wood products. On Washington’s coast are in numerable harbors on which Seattle, Tacoma, Everett, Olympia, Van couver and other important cities are located. This great commercial area is the nearest American gate way to the ports of Asia and handles most of the shipping to and from Alaska as well as world trade through the Panama canal. During World War II the shipbuilding and airplane manufacturing industry reached gigantic proportions and is expected to continue. Coupled with its almost-unlimited natural resources is Washington’s mighty output of hydro - electric power for industry. The Grand Coulee dam is part of a reclama tion project that will ultimately irri gate 1,200,000 acres of land and pro duce electrical power far in excess of present needs. The Bonneville dam and others also contribute to the generation of power. Washington, however, remains chiefly agricultural. It leads all states by far in the production of apples and is high in output of oth er fruits such as pears, peaches, cherries, grapes, apricots, prunes and berries. Other crops are wheat, barley, oats, Corn, alfalfa and clover hay, sugar beets, peas and hops. Huge herds of cattle and sheep graze throughout the state, and horses, hogs, chickens and tur keys are grown profitably on most farms and ranches. In the eastern part of the state, Washington is semi-arid, with irri gation used extensively. Its grain and cattle industries thrive there. West of the Cascades the rainfall is extremely heavy, ranging as high as 80 inches annually, with a re sultant profusion of vegetation. The people of Washington have a rich heritage of thrift and courage and they retain the pioneer spirit that led them through the perils of settlement. They have the vision, too, for greater strides tomorrow. * CASCADES ... Of the Dose wallips river, Olympic national park.

Vibrant Melodies Melodies played on the famous old carillons of Europe are heard for more than a mile because their bells are suspended from heavy pieces of timber, says Collier’s. Many modern American carillons cannot be heard with reasonable fi delity for more than a block or two because their bells are sus pended from steel girders connect ed with the structure’s framework, which absorbs and grounds from 60 to 75 per cent of the musical vibrations. g/V!4P/ CRACKLE!
