Because of weather conditions the Memorial services in Ukiah were held in Veterans' Memorial hall Sunday afternoon under thc_ auspices of the American Legion, assisted and participated in by the Legion auxiliary, the Forty and Eight and 8/40, with Commander DeKeno conducting the impressive service. The colors and organization I flag's of the American Legion, the Legion auxiliary, and the department banner of the 8/40 were advanced and Comrade Rev. Gran Bollinger offered the invocation. Superior Judge Lilbura Gibson addressed the gathering to the point that all who have given their lives in our country's defense have made the supreme sacrifice because of their belief in the destiny of our country, to give to mankmd the pattern of perfect government. Wreaths from the American Legion, the American Legion Auxiliary, the Forty and Eight and 8/40, were presented and Mrs. Berniee Faas delivered an appropriate tribute to the dead. Fatlier Adrien Sharkey offered a prayei- for those who gave their lives for their country, and a benediction .for the living. Commander DeKeno then" adjourned the meeting with an expression of appreciation for the attendance and participation of all present. Those present then went to the cemetery and placed the wreaths oil the American Legion monument. Because of Califoniia'S Gold Centennial, Alfred A; Knopf has just re-published a book by a distinguished author who spent his last years in Ukiah, Charles Howard Shinn,. journalist, poet, teacher and tofestry bfllciai whose life left a deep imprint on California. His wife. Mr^. Julia Shinn of 120S Clay sti-eet how 80i'is an active and greatly beloved resident of Ukiah. His book, Mining Camps, first published in 1885 has been a val- jyued and hard-to-obtain study of the forces that molded frontier I government. It was written While" 'he was a student of political science in Johns Hopkins university and reflects the deep philosophy I of his mature years when he never lost the belief that the 'upright ! and sincere man will prevail.' I This guiding principle was back 1 of his entire career which included I a close personal friendship with 1 Woodrow Wilson and Giflford Pin'chot; a, memorable clash with Washington forestry officials on jfor ^t administration and later .years in Peace'Cabin on Northfork in Madera county before he came to Ukiah where he died in 1924 in tJie home of his daughter, the late Mrs. Charles Kasch. Peak Named For Shinn Mount ,Shlnn, a peak in the Sierra was named for him. He contributed to many newspapers and magazines and was deeply in- tercEted m the Icaria-Speranza colony founded by Russians on the Russian river near Clovserdale in 1881, Of this he wrote in later years, "Funny, isn't it, how hard it is for dead-in-earnest reformers to endure one another—bless them all anyhow." In writing of books he revealed his.fine spiritual nature when he said, "I wish to maintain the doctrine that literature is but the handmaid and servant of the good, the pure and the serene. Only the wise and gentle should dare to arialyze the li-ves of men," ivtining Camps, according to an introduction in* the new edition by J. H. Jackson in the Chronicle is an important contribution to our knoWleilge of durselyes and our method of self-government—our American' character. The book, says Jackson, "is also a reflection of a man who because he was himself a fine example of the American character, understood that it was .rooted in a tradition of sturdy independence, that is is practical, essentially realistic and for all that has yet been proved to the contrary, ineradicable." Signiflcant Now It seems particularly appropriate that this re-issue should come at a time when California is on the threshold of its centennial and when man himself is probing deep into the forces and beliefs that have molded his character and political systems. The book is not written for the scholar alone but for any reader who enjoys a readable analysis of all that has contributed to the practical political experience of mankind. Tae California gold rush, as Shinn demonstrates, was more than a brief, romantic era; it was a period of great historical importance in molding a pr&ctical set of rules by which men could live amicably with one another. Mrs. Shinn who is a member of the Reading Club, superintendent of the Presbyterian Sunday school, and active in. church \york, is a trained botanist and an authority on trees., SEE SHRINE CIRCUS Mr. and Mrs. Frank Crane took their son Douglas to Sm Francisco Saturday to see his first Shrine circus which was stagecl in the San Francisco auditorium. Poppy Day Aides Given High Praise Poppy Day in Ukiah Saturday, May 22, was. highly successful and community response was gratifying, according to Mrs, Elise Figone, chairman of the Veterans Of Foreign Wars Auxiliary Poppy Day committee, "The little red crepe paper poppy is a badge of honor," she said, "a tribute to braVe men now gone. But it is also a badge of courage for the living still in hospitals, and those who wore them Saturday proved those wounded and suffering the aftermath of war are not forgotten," She thanked all who assisted her, including Mesdames Lillian De Keno, Robert Jardine, Marjorie Sanchez, Jane Isnard, Ann Moore, Agnes Chapman, Prudence Laviletta, Minnie Sweeney and Joan Roberts, Also Camp Fire Girls and students of Calpelia school and friends. Among the children helping were Romaine Squier, Marilyn Sikora, Phyllis Williams, Grace White, Ardeil Meyers, Whitney Seeley, Shirley Ginochia, Glen De Keno, Harold Etter, Dixie De Metro, Annabel Cave, Eileen Elliot, Wayne Elliot, Alice Donaldson, Lorraine Rovera, Marilyn Ora, Day and Mildred McCarthy.
