Fred Marler Prom; the hotel dining room where the Rotary and Kiwanis Clubs ate rubber chicken and "buck-shot" peas. It was here that the Ladies' Aid held its teas and visiting politicians presided over receptions. The lobbies were huge, cavernous rooms, usually two stories high with a mez- zanine running around two sides and jewelry displays along one wall. The fellows that' used to sit on porches, tipped back their chairs, all moved inside to these hotel lobbies. You could stand around and talk in them, or sit in one of the leather couches and read the paper and nobody paid any atten- tion to you. It was where you met out of town guests who didn't know their way to your house, or where the family met when they'd split up to do their Christmas shopping. The folks that used to sit around hotel lobbies are all gone now. 1 guess they're up in their rooms watching tele- vision. Lobbies in modern hotels are just wide spots around the registration desks. There's no income from the lobby, so they really don't want you sitti, ng around in it anyway. They'd rather you were in the bar, drinking. When the Depression hit, there was no investment capital to build new hotels, and nobody to stay in them if they had build them. Nobody could afford train fare, and couldn't afford a hotel if they did travel. Everybody stayed with relatives or they stayed home! The existing hotels began to sag on their crumbling foundations. When World War II began, with its recruits await- ing transportation, the hotels got a much-needed shot in the arm. Things were looking up again. It was about this time that most of us had our first experiences staying at a hotel. The heavy velvet drapes were dusty and faded, the or- nate moulding chipped and cracked, the carpet thread- bare and the silver finish was wearing off the dining room silver. But the indulgent ser- vice hinted at a gracious style of living that was intriguing. It always made you feel kind of special, perhaps a little pompous, to have the maitre d' rush around to make sure that you were seated. I think I was at my arrogant best when the desk clerk dinged his little bell and barked at the bellhop to take my bags to room 732. I always got a kick out of calling room service in the morning, to order coffee. It came in one of those heavy, silver-plated pitchers that made you feel sort of elegant just to pour it. 'Course the coffee was black as the ace of spades and bitter enough to cure a calf of the scours, but the service sent you out into a strange city feeling sort of cocky and confident. When the war ended, so did the hotel's heyday. The auto-oriented public was already deserting them, favoring the convenience of the motel. They're gone now, most of them, bulldozed out to make room for super- markets, but there was some- thing genteel and elegant about those shabby old hotels, and I shall always miss them. manager Contlnued from Page I sometimes extreme flood plicatethejob." conditions.

Hersch was charged with the crime in King County Superior Court August 17 and is still at large, according to Deputy Prosecutor Stephen Moore. Moore reported in court documents that Hersch, who has a long history of traffic violations, was driving his 1968 Firebird at speeds up to 90 miles per hour coming down from Snoqualmie Pass July 6, when he rearended a van, knocking it off the west- bound lanes of 1-90.
