Mason, who died in Albany Tuesday afternoon. Graduated from the college, president of the Woman's Albany College League, and a loved trustee, Miss Mason took more interest in student affairs than any other person off the campus. Long before she became a trustee and when her interest was purely that of an outsider, she fostered every activity conducive to the growth and intellectual life of the college. Students lived in Miss Mason's home where they found real culture, sympathy and beauty. She attended the social affairs of students and she helped them with their personal problems. Her car was ever at their disposal. When they gave a play or the college had an open house, Miss anie to uiHeover new Htara. tisticly arranged by Miss Mason herself, gathered from her own and her voice: "Really? Dix Carter? Of course he knew me! We were friends when he was in college. I didn't know he was in Hollywood. I'd like to see him some time." Linda waited for the next line as though it were not terribly important to her. "I'll tell him if you don't mind. I know he'd like to see you." Linda smiled and walked away. She wanted to tell the girl her telephone number and address, but she didn't dare. Dix would know where to reach her if he wanted to. The girl had said Dix was an extra. That perplexed her, and she tried to forget it. She tried not to want to see him. But the very next morning, when he came, she told her secretary to show him in and take a message to someone four floors away and wait for an answer. "Hello, Dix," she said. "Hello, Linda," he answered. "I always thought you were beautiful, but then I thought I had only imagined it... but, you're just the way I've been thinking of you At a parly Klven by Honey Ilnr- There couldn't be ANY gift she would appreciate more.

When such a death occurs it prompts public comment. Still more unusual are those instances in which tho valued member of a community is privileged to read or hear while still mortal those' praises which are generally reserved for obituaries. Such privilege was enjoyed recently by one of Albany's most beloved citizens. Prior to the national convention of Business and Professional Women at Seattle last July plans were made for a special edition of the "Washington Business Woman," official B. & P.

She refused to accept this reason for his attraction. She fitted into the role of The Man a Girl Dreams Of. She knew all about the other women in his life Cora Jarrett hud told her about them but she let herself go to the extent of believing that she might be the One Woman. The reasoning part of her mind told her that it wasn't and wouldn't be, but the imaginative side told her that it would be intriguing to make sure. Kor five days Thorne didn't telephone her. That didn't surprise Linda. She expected that lie would play his game that way. He knew ho hud made an impression; now lie would let her wonder a bit. He reckoned without Linda's purposefulness. Knowing the situation between Honey and Thorne, she decided she would not sec him. But for once Linda did not abide by her own decision. Basil Thorne telephoned her the sixth day of that week and asked her lo dine at his house. To her own surprise, she accepted, and spent tlie next hour in a fever of dressing. Her hair wouldn't behave. The red frock looked too bold, the white one too virginal, the black one too - dressed-up. She wore a frosty gray, pinned violets at the waist, and flung a mink cape over her shoulders. She was glad then that she was extravagant about clothes. She laughed a little at herself as she put "mad-nuinuy." (a hand-over from a girlhood that seemed long ago) into her velvet purse. Speeding over the smooth roads to Brentwood and Thome's palatini "shack." as she called the 18 rooms, she remined herself that she was a grown woman, capable of handling any situation, and that a man only look advantage of a woman when the woman wanted him to. While many men had made love to her in Hollywood, none hud presumed to treat her as a woman other than she was. And while she was telling herself these things, her excitement mounted and made her (lushed and lovely when she stopped into the great hall of Thome's house. He was not there to gleet her. Word has been received here that John Shepherd, Scio, has been named as one of the four members of the Oregon State soil conservation board to administer the new soil conservation program in Oregon. The appointment was made by George E. Furrell, Washington, D. C, regional supervisor of the program, who will have 11 western states under his jurisdiction. It is regarded as a tribute to Mr. Shepherd's leadership in local agricultural circles. What's the grand champion of all breakfasts?

A week later the secretary told her she had sent "the usuul telegram" and showed Linda the press clippings about the play. It was a sell-out and Pete was the season's success! , That was at the time Unit "Take a Letter" was finally being filmed and Linda found herself ucting as co-producer. She was on the set all day, in the projection room watching the rushes by night, and squeezing sleep in when she could. That picture was all hers. Young, slim, executive, she was as attractive to the extra girls as the star herself. They called out shy greetings to her, found ways to wait on her. She was practically a producer. If she liked a girl, she might help her.
