About The te Of Washin00 on By Guy LaFollette Special Session Of Legislature Now A Dead Issue In Washington Olympia, November 20 - Tlie one sure thing about a special ses- sion of the legislature is that it will not be called by Governor Men C. Wallgren now or at any future time if the Governor can avoid such action. The meeting held here last week was an oppor- tunity for aI.1 advocates of a call for a special session to come ad present their arguments. They came and brought all the ideas they had, but when the results were tabulated Governor Wall- gren could not see any good rea- son for such a session. The Gov- ernor summed the situation up well in his statement which was in the form of a question, "If a spec- ial sehsion were called th$ public would ask, 'what for?'" Waligren T,he Man Of The Week In Washington ,Regardless of the ill will which some say will follow the posztve refusal of the governor to call a special session, many people who are interested in the situation be- lieve the position taken by the governor wil'l make friends for him among business and other conservative groups while the left wing members of his party have and friends gave a sui'pris e pot- luck dinner at the home of Mr. and Mrs. Raleigh C. Monroe Sun- day in honor of their 25th wed- ding anniversary which da oc- curs November 21st. A huge cake adorned with min- iature bride and groom formed. the centerpiece and a large flared basket of silver moire ribbon with silver bells suspended from chains of silver beads was filled with chrysanthemums and Aflded charm to the lace covered_ table. It being impossible to buy sil- ver now, the guests hit upon a novel way to provide means of se- curing it later as the basket be- neath the-flowers was filled with silver dollars. A lovely corsage of carnations was presented Mrs. Monroe. A short musical progwam was enjoyed. Jeanne Monroe and Ver- na Lou Young with Mrs. Clyde Ham at the p'ano sang "Till the End of Time," and the quartet of Verna Lou Young, Jeanne Mon- roe, Mrs. Roberta Ward and Mrs. Shirley Bennett-sang "I Love You Truly" and "When Your Hair has Turned to Silver." Following the dinner a social hour was enjoyed. The birthdays of two daughters were also honored, Mrs. Roberta Ward, on whose birthday the din- ner was given, and Jeanne Mon- roe, whose birthday is on Novem- ber 21st. Out of town guests included Mr. and Mrs. Sterling Monroe, Mrs. C. Rumbolz, Verna Lou Young and Jeanne Monroe, Okan- Mr. and Mrs: W. . ogan; and  HOLDS THANKS- GIVING DINNER Forty friendly people partook of the bountiful Thanksgiving dinner at the Log Church Tues- day evening. The R'ev. Mr. MIc- Lain spoke appreciatively of the many reasons for giving thanks. With Mrs. E. S. Hunt at the organ, several favorite hymns were sung after the meal. Sgt. Paul M. Plumly, who had spent several r_mnths in Iceland, gave an entertaining description of that country and its people, and showed a number of ictures of the life and activities there. MRS. J. W GEISSLER HOSTESS TO TRIANGLE CLUB Mrs. J. W. Geissler was hostess to the. Brewster Triangle Club 7ast Thursday when twenty4wo members and guests were present.

Har- ris, Cleatis Key, W.A.,'Pulsipher, W.L. Shaw, O.P. McCoy: and J.W. Geissler. Mrs. Meta Skiles, who was co-hostess with Mrs. Geissler, was unable to attend. The variety presented in the individual roll call responses was in itself enter- raining. Mrs. Elliott gave a review of the establishment of Ft. Okan- ogan from a volume of History of North Central Washington. Mrs. Wilson displayed articles of Ind- ian beKdwork cleverly construct- edby residents of our own county. These were brotght in a box of Buffalo skin decorated with indes- tractable paint. Also shown was a no place to go if they wish to withhold support from the gover- nor in future elections. ,e thing weknow is that no republican or "conservative" dem- ocrat could lave done a better'job in silencing the din that has been growing for weeks past among left wing democrats foe the spec- ial sssion. A wide variety of far reaching legislation was being 'discussed by some members of the legislature and some labor leders. Most of this was dismissed by the gover- nor as being in the province o" the national congress or not time- .ly for the state.
