Page 4 SHELTONMASON COUNTY JOURNAL- Publis.ed in "Uhristmatown, U.S.A.", Shelton, Washington Th' 3 CLAUDE DANIELSON MADE HIS MARK With arrival of 1963 has come enforced retirement for Claude M. Danielson from the profession to which he de- voted 50 years of his life. The last 20 of those years were spent as manager o Mason County's Public Utility District No. 3, a circumstance which has proven most fortunate for the district. Under Mr. Danielson's management the district was pulled back from financial chaos and shaped into one of the mst,£iscLlysound: PUPs in this ::state. enjoying-:a=:redi rating unexcelled in financial circles concerned with doing business with utility districts, and reflected in part in the fact that PUD 3 has the second best debt-free equity among Washington PUPs. Mr. Danielson modestly credits the elected com- missioners under whom he has served with having the business acumen and good judgment to support his pro- posals and programs over the years, which, of course, is true as the commissioners have the final authority. Nonetheless, it was Mr. Danielson's abilities basically ,which brought PUD 3 to its present sound financial plateau and position of debt-free equity. Not all PUDs in this state have been so fortunate. PUD 3. is further fortunate that Jerry Samples, its new manager, received his training under Mr. Danielsom From this it- is reasonable to expect a continuation of the Daniel- son policies and methods which have been proven so success- ful for this district. The Danielson career in electrical power distribu- tion has been on both sides of the often controversial machinations of power distribution, public and private, and ratheruniquely some of both came right here in this community, where he first served as manager of the private company, West Coast Power, whose hold- ings later were bought by PUD 3. After moving into the public power field Mr. Daniel- son contributed much to the progress which has been made in this field in the past two decades. He has wielded consid- erable influence in the establishment of state-wide policies, rate structures, and generating facilities for public power distribution agencies. Though his retirement is not of his own choosing but mandatory because of age, it is comforting to know that he will continue to live in this community and his wise counsel will be available should it be needed in the future. Among Your Merchants BONNIE TI BBITTS Takes Duties Here Bonnie Eagle Tibbits, a native Sheltonian who was graduated from Irene S• Reed high school with the class of 1948, has been trsnsfered from its Olympia head- quarters to its Shelton office by the Thurston County Federal Sav- ing & Loan Association with the coming of the new year, Mrs, Tibbitts becomes assistant to manager M M, "Bud" Lyon, replacing Connie Brevig Roberts, who moves to Seattle as her hus- band enters the University of Washington. She has accepted a position with the University Fe- deral Savings & Loan Association. She has been with Thurston Coun- ty S & L since April of 1961.

Under the copyright itle "Drug Tax" Prepp's has subscribed to a new service which will keep track of a customer's drug purchases and provide anmtal statements usable in income tax computa- tions for items which are deduc- tible. Drug purchases coming under the deductible list will be recorded on "'memory" tapes and fed to electronic computers, which at the end of the year automatically as- semble a permanent reco]'d which is then sent to the customer about February 15. "Few people realize what a wide rarity of drugs come under the deductible list. "M.S. Preppernau, proprietor of Prepp's Rexall Store said.
