The selection of F. S. LeGrow,
cashier of the First National Bank
of Athena to the position of execu
tive vice-president of the new First
Inland National Bank of Pendleton,
is a tribute to his ability as a bank
er and recognition of his sterling
financial capabilities that have matur
ed in his management of the First
National Bank of Athena over a long
period of - years and which have
brought the local institution into the
foremost banking ranks of the Inland
Empire. The First National of Athe
na is in no way connected with the
Pendleton consolidation. Mr. LeGrow
will continue to hold his interests
here and manage the bank on the
same conservative lines as he has
done in years past. His acceptance of
the Pendleton position will in no way
alter or interfere with his manage
ment of the First National of Athe'
Arson, as Fire Marshal S. L. Le
greid of Illinois, recently pointed
out, is a crime whose successful
prosecution requires the support of a
strong and united public sentiment. It
is one- of the most despicable of all
crimes and one which affects the se
curity and pocket-book of every citi
zen. Illinois has made a good record
in combating it through the creation
of local arson squads. These are
headed by the fire chiefs, in associa
tion with the heads of the police and
public spirited property owners.

In a recent address Charles S. Wil-,
son, a member of the Federal Farm
Board, emphasized the fact that to
get benefits from farm relief, the in
dividual producer must first belong to
a 'cooperative association of some
kind. The overwhelming surpluses
of farm products that have flooded
the market and knocked the bottom
out of price levels, must be overcome
by unified action in all phases of pro
duction and sales.

It seems that the republican party

Is the matrimonial market hit by
the present business depression ?
Stacking 62 fashionable New York
weddings this October against 100 the

So does Tiffany, who offers as evi

Portland, on the other hand, re
ports matrimony on the crest of the
wave, and more weddings scheduled
for October this year than the whole
fall season of 1930. Jewelers, gift
shops, modistes, florists, all report a
decided increase in sales for weddings
this month.
Another optimistic statement is
made by Madame Blanche New York
wedding cake expert, regarding more
and better nuptial ceremonies. Back

All agreed on one question, how
ever the fashions of the season have
influenced the mode in weddings.
With the swish of ruffled skirts and
satins, and with hats in the elegance
of the '80s, come demand for Mid
Victorian bridal cakes.
And the simple gold band on the
ring finger replaces the flashing,
diamond-set platinum circlet. So the
bridegroom suffers less, while the
bride's father groans more. His to
face the bills for swishing silks and
satins and plumed velvet hats.
"Tiny statues of the bride and
bridegroom, perched on top of an
elaborately frosted cake, were the
cat's whiskers when it came to style
in the past generation," says the
New York reporter. "During recent
years they were shelved for more
modern touches. But today the lit
tle couples are in fashion again, and
more than one prospective bride or
ders the funny figures for her wed
ding cake."
And, while on the subject, pros
perous times 50 years gone caused a
decided increase in the number of
golden wedding celebrations reported
in 1930. Newspapers were flooded
with photographs and reports of 50
year anniversaries, the situation ac
counted for by the fact that the pros
perous times of the '80s just 50
years before, when gold coinage was
plentiful sent many a swain and his
bride to the altar.
