Rotarlans Frown on Action and Move
to Keep Up Fight for Indian Name;
Extended Battle Presaged.
TACOMA. Wash., Aug. 22. (Special.)
Old Admiral Peter Rainier has but
few friends in Tacoma and they all are
members of the Kiwanis club, appar
ently. For Tacomans some 140,000 of
them, both pioneers and those who have
lately come have hit the admiral some
hard knocks in the last two days.
They are a unit in saying: that the
knob on mother earth which stands
as a frosty centerpiece in Rainier Na
tional park shall be known, now and
forever, as Mount Tacoma. not Mount
Rainier, which they stigmatize as an
appellation good enough for beer and
near beer, but not expressive enough
for the "mountain that was God."
Kivranis Club Plays -"Hero."
The furore, at least the most re
cent upheaval on the subject with Its
nerve strain and heat beneath the
collar, came when the Kiwanis club
members, heroes that they have shown
themselves to be, voted 120 to 3 to do
away at once and for all with the inter
city squabble between Tacoma and
Seattle and call the mountain Rainier.
Thus they would douse the mountain's
aboriginal name to gain the good ef
fect of tourist travel and eliminate
the confusion existing In the minds of
the tired travelers from east of the
Mississippi who wish to see the west
in all its grandeur and have a round
trip ticket over another route home.
Seattle's Advice Heeded.
Dr. John C. Siegle, Tacoma dentist.
who has just returned from service,
started all the clatter. Dr. Siegle quoth
to the Kiwanians a week ago, that they
should forget the "small town stuff"
and gain the advertising advantage of
the name of Rainier as Seattle has
done "It is the name prescribed by the
national geographical board. So what's
the use of holding out." Other members
delayed action for a week until they
could think It over.
Last 'Tuesday another meeting was
held and Welford Beaton, Seattle pub
lisher, was the speaker of the day: He
casually mentioned that he heard the
Kiwanis club was thinking of indors
ing the name of Rainier. "That's a
good plan," he smiled. 'lefs forget the
old squabble."..
Garlands Reek; With Venom.
It was all said and done in a mo
ment and then the Kiwanians' feeling
that they had started something worth
while, telephoned to the newspapers
and waited for the garlands of green
bay.
No sooner were the afternoon papers
on the streets than the garlands
time, but not the garlands of roses,
holly or anything nice. They were bard
words, hard, cruel words, reeking with
venom.
That night the Mount Tacoma club,
a group of the faithful who ever have
worked for the restoration of the an
cient name of the mountain, met and
called the Kiwanians Judases, Bene
dict Arnolds, as well as heaping other
anathemas on the club men. The Ro
tarians met the next day and frowned
on the motion to change the name.
They had a double reason for their ac
tion. One is a deep rivalry between
themselves and th Kiwanis folk and
then they wanted to see the fine old
Indian word hang forevermore over
the peak. The Tacoma Advertising
club deferred the matter for the time
being when asked to take action.
Kiwanians Stand Alone.
Meanwhile the ardent defenders of
the ancient cognomen are digging Into
Indian lore and are recalling the words
of Chief Sluiskin and the other red-
en to show that Tacoma or Tahoma
was the appellation of adoration and
awe that the aborigines 6pok8 when
the sun shot its rays across the summit
of the wonderful old peak.
But the Kiwanians stand alone tn
their effort to make Rainier sound as
usical as Tahoma in their own home
town.
"Nothing doing." say the mountain
eers, the editors, the preachers and the
lawvers. all of whom have becom
articulate since the fuss started. De
spite the war cost of white paper, reams
of it have been used during me lasi
three days by the hectic folk who wan
to express themselves on this burning
Question. They quote stepnen i.
Mather, superintendent of national
parks, who favors the name of Tacoma.
Have you Joined tne kiwanis:
the twitting word of those who think
the club men are renegades and have
sneaked across no man's land to th
enemy's lines. But the Kiwanis club 1

is not in sight.

FAIRE BINNET, one of the famous
Binney sisters -who took New York
bv storm last -winter, plays the
lead In "Open Your Eyes," the photo
play with' which the Star programme
will open today'.
The story f "Open Your Eyes" has
exceptional : Interest because it is a
story of every-day. life and its every
day opportunities for success and
failure. Elaborate settings are said to
be used consistently throughout the
entire production.
The most amazing feature of "Open
Your Eyes" la the fact that its produc
tion has been under the supervision of
the L'nited States health service. This
will have considerable local interest as
a large number of th Portland phy
sicians and surgeons who answered the j
call of the colors enrolled in this branch I
of the service. Many of these men
still remain under its orders.
"Open Your Eyes" deals with the !
subject of health In regards to social
life. The government has come to
realize that this is a subject about
which such a comparatively small num
ber of persons are informed, that the
picture was designed to go Into the
matter thoroughly and intelligently. A
spade is called a spade throughout the ,
ever about the picture that does not , r
conform with good taste.' The picture
Is not only a delightful story but it is
truly educational.
