By Louis Spry, 8th Grade Student On February 16, 1949, 46 of the eighth grade students of Spanaway school went to see the State Capitol at Olympia. First we went to see the House of Representatives. They were assigning different bills to committees. The reading clerk read the bills on the day's calendar and handed them to the speaker of the House, who ''.'ould assi~n them to their respective committees. The House page boys were dressed ii{ b Ju c with "house page" .on their sleeves. We then went to the office of Secretary of State Earl Coe, who told us some facts about our government to her home in Minneapolis Minn.

Into every dog's life comes at least one sad, distressing day. This day oft.en begins when a strange cat invades Fido's home grounds. Such an affront, of course, cannot be taken casually. Fido snaps his lea~h and starts after the brazen invader. A scrambling chase through back yards, across vacant lots, and down alleys then ensues. Several blocks later, with the cat successfully treed, Fido faces the unhappy realization that he is in a foreign country, far from home and lost. This is the time wben a feller really needs a friend.
