Sixty Gather at Camp Grounds on the Tucannon

SKYHOOK, April 29.—About sixty friends of Miss Mioma Krels and Clem Baden gathered Sunday at the camp grounds on Tucannon, where they surprised the two young people and helped to celebrate their birthdays. A picnic dinner, including the necessary birthday cake with candles, was served at one o'clock. Sports enjoyed during the day were racing, fishing and car riding. About five o'clock all departed for their homes, wishing that birthdays came more often than once a year.

On the return trip the crowd was delayed by meeting a house in the road. A Mr. Clark was moving his house to a new location and accidentally collided with a tree. While delayed the boys from the picnic generously aided in cutting down trees and removing brush so we could pass on.

From California to Maine the alumni of Whitman are to launch this money-raising drive simultaneously. Plans call for holding a branch dinner in every locality where there are five or more former students of the college Dinners are expected to be held in more than 100 cities in every state, and in three foreign countries.

The local dinner is to be held in the Pomeroy hotel at 7:00 p. m. Miss Florence Long will preside and Professor W. H. Bleakney of Whitman college, and Miss Kathryn Morgan will speak.
