"We are very happy to announce that Jack Gordon will be our master of ceremonies," Day said. "Not only will Gordon introduce the distinguished guests and speakers but he will also act as moderator for the question and answer period following Sen. Jackson's speech."

Gordon is executive vice president of the Restaurant Assn. of the State of Washington. He has been chairman of many civic receptions for distinguished visitors to Seattle including astronauts of Apollo XII, presidents and other visiting dignitaries.

Sen. Jackson has chosen environmental problems with special emphasis on Ft. Lawton as his topic. As part of the program he will present a plaque to the Magnolia student writing the best essay on environment problems. These essays have been appearing in local papers during the past several weeks. The plaque is being donated by Buz Throndsen of the Magnolia Shell Station.

Mayor Wes Uhlman will present the third annual "Magnolia Distinguished Citizen's" Award at the meeting. The Queen Anne High Band and the Blaine Jr. High Choir will present musical selections.

Distinguished citizens who have accepted invitations to attend the meeting during the last week were King County Councilwoman Bernice Stern, George Mack of the Audubon Society and Warren Wilson, principal of Briarcliff School.
