Dear Marian:
Highlight of the past week hai
been the vi:it of a contingency
of Oregonians, moit of them
members of the Governor'! Com
mittee on Highway Safety, with
Governor Paul L. Patterson him
self beading up this group of vis
iting Oregonians.
From the opening of the gen
eral session Wednesday morning
when the President addressed the
assembly , to the final general
meeting with' the Vice President
as the speaker, the visitors par
ticipated in daily sessions of pan
el groups in various phases of
safety work. Individuals in the
Oregon group attended the pan
el in the f'dd of their own rep
resentation nd then they joined
Friday noon in an Oregon lunch
eon meeting to crystallite the
recommendations of the Presi
dent's Conference.
On Wednesday, Secretary
Douglas McKay entertained the
committee members in the In
tenor dimn, room and it was
general discussion of Oregon top
ics and news rather than high
way safety that engrossed the
luncheon group that day. Most of
the comi ittee bad opportunities
to visit with Oiegon Congression
al members and some of them
sat in on Capitol cessions. A spe
cial event v a the While House
tour arranged lor early Friday
morning in which a dozen of the
committee joined, returning to
report appreciatively on the at
tractions of the executive man
sion. You have had the namea
of the committee, and I'll not
repeat them here hut suffice to
sty, that it was pleasant to have
an opportunity to chatter with
them about home and the home
folks. ,
Other visitors from Oregon
this week have been Dr. Walter
E. Snyder, superintendent of Sa
lem schools; 8. E. Brogoittl, of
Helix, chairman of the State
Board of Education; and E. H.

Some Notations.,
By M. L. F.
As always, the annual "Sweet
heart Party" of the Downtown
Salem u club Wednesday
night was a gala affair almost
a riotous one because of that
"character" peculiar to Lions
clubs, the tailtwister and the
tailtwister, Leo Reimann, was in
top form last night, even to a
"mink" bow tie . . .
The club members entertained
their wives at a dinner and pro
gram at the Marion hotel, danc
ing following the program . , .
Carl ' Aschenbrenner, a past
presiaent, was toastmaster and
did his usual food job, but un
der handicaps because of the
heckling from said tailtwister
all in fun, of course, to keep the
party gay and laughing . . . Din
ner music was played by a trio
from Willamette university . . ,
Several games, a memory test
one, a scrambled word one, etc.,
were played with prizes awarded.
. . . The heart fund gained on
the last one, "passing the water
glass," the fines being turned
over to the heart fund drive . . .
The tables were bright with
large bouquets of red tulips with
white hearts tucked among them
and red candles down the cen
ter .. .

Two Willamette University stu
dents, Donald Berney and
Charles Ruud, are in Washing
ton for the special "Washington
Semester" program offered by
American University. At the Ore
gon dinner recently they enjoyed
meeting som. young fellow Ore
gonions who are also studying in
Washington. The students find
that one of the greatest features
of their semester in the national
capital is the opportunity to
study federal governmental oper
ations at short rangi, as well as
to have more time to visit his
toric spots than the usual visitor
who has all too few brief days
here. For example, one of the
Governor's Committee who re
mained over an extra day report
ed that he tran ped IS miles that
day viewing some of the famous
buildings, in order to get at least
a general picture of the Wash
ington scene in his brief time
For those of us who are here
longer, the chief difficulty in
viewing some of these buildings
is that we put off from week to
week any of that kind of sight
seeing, thinking there will be
more time a little later. Do you
suppose I'll come home without
seeing the Smithsonian? Or go
ing up In the Washington Monu
ment? Adieu,
