The boys said they had just decided to hike up to the snowfields and “monkey around," Aden said they told their rescuers. Searching parties had been combing the Olympics from the Hamma Hamma to the Dose» wallips for three days and six airplanes had engaged in the search yesterday in an attempt to locate the boys, whose last word to their families had been a note written from Brinnon saying they would be home January 4.

NEW RECORD SET FOR RED CROSS DRIVE 1101 Memberships Taken Out Andi $1,448.35 Raised During I Roll Call; Final Report Made With five workers still unre—I ported, Chairman Paul MarshallI Iclosed the books on the 1940 Red Cross roll call drive yesterday with a new record membership enrolled and what may also be jthe greatest cash total collected during the annual roll call. The 1940 drive enlisted 1161 in- dividual members with a total' Icash contribution of $1,448.35, Chairman Marshall’s report shows. The only cash total which mayl have surpassed that figure may, ,have been set back in World War' ldays, when one drive is believed to have yielded something in ex- cess of $1,500, but whether that Iwas during a regular roll call or! iduring a special flood disaster. 'drive is uncertain. . I Every Division Gains Every division of this past roll call, which was the 24th annuall _for the Mason County chapter, Ishowed an increase over the pre- lvious year’s drive, Chairman Mar- Ishall reported. The residential division, under the chairmanship| of Mrs. William Stevenson, brought! ‘in 192 members and $308; the' headquarters office in the Graham Theatre building, with Janet Tra~ cey and Mrs, Stevenson in charge, {produced 50 members and $108; I the business area, under Phil Bay- ley, brought in 333 members and I3387.50; the industrial area, un- Ider Sid Hatcher, brought in 235| Inlembers and $268; while the' lrural campaign, under Commis~ lsioner Vincent Paul, brought in] ’351 members and $376.85. Five Tardy Reporting The five solicitors who wereI sent roll call material but whoI I. l I I have not as yet reported in were to cover the Allyn, Harstine andI Belfair areas and two had beenI assigned to cover Route 2, Mar-I ‘shall said yesterday. They may} report in to Chapter TreasurerI Elliot B. Spring when they com~ plete their reports and any fundsI they bring, in». will "be. added Aw: next fall’s roll call:"*;Sevcrr dol- lars carried over from last year’s drive were added to the 1940 roll call, so actually the report for this year’s drive will show $1,- 455.35, Marshall said. “I wish to express in behalf of l' the Mason County Red Cress my Sincere appreciation for the ex- cellent work done by all connect- ed with this year's roll call," the chairman said in making his fi- nal report.

During this seven-year period] there were eight school elections; five state primary elections, five state general elections (with four city primary elections falling on the same days), one flood control election, one Public Utility Dis- trict election, and one city pri- mary election which did not fall on the same day as any other election. ‘ A similar comparison in rural precincts is not possible because. the permanent registration law did not go into effect until 1936 outside the incorporated cities and' also different precincts have had different numbers of elections varying with school districts, port districts, etc. I 236 REGISTRATIONS I CANCELLED IN CITY ,of the 1940 campaign dent OFFICIAL COUNTY PAPER , SEAL HOLDERS ASKED TO END l LAGGING SALE Annual Meeting of Tuberculosis League Next Week, So De- sire To Close Up Drive Comes While the actual sale of tuber- culosis Christmas seals closed two weeks ago, the degree of success to raise funds for the Mason County Tu- berculosis League's program in :1941 depends upon the remittance of money for seals by a large number" of Shelton and Mason County people to whom seals were sent late in November, Mrs. Vernon Davidson, executive secre- Itary, reported today. She urged those seal receivers who have not yet done so to remit 'elther the seals or the money for their seals at once so that the seal sale drive may be cleaned ‘up and the league’s records for the year completed in full in time for the annual meeting which will be held Friday, January 17, in the Masonic Temple. Come, Come, Folks The sale has lagged somewhat behind last year, with total re- ceipts up to today of $703. league desired to raise between $900 and $1,000 for its 1941 pro- gram, so the cooperation of ev- eryone still holding unpaid for seals is necessary if the campaign is to come anywhere near this goal, 01' even to reach last year’sIduring the year formed the chief total, Mrs. Davidson pointed out. TheP I ,_..._._.. FAMILY LOSES ALL AS HOME LAWN BURNS TODAY Residence Of Ronald Starr Fam- ‘ ily At 925 S. First Complete— ly Destroyed This Morn- ing By Blaze Fire destroyed completely, in- cluding all furnishings and per- sonal belongings, the home of Mr, and Mrs. Ronald Starr at 925 South First Street this morn- lng. A stubborn blaze which resisted the persistent efforts of the city fire department to extinguish it, gutted the home completely and gained headway so quickly that nothing in the residence was sav- ed, Mrs. Starr escaping with her two children, a Slag-year-old son and a 2—year-old daughter, with nothing more than the clothes they were wearing. Mrs. Starr said the blaze ap- parently started in the bathroom, spreading so rapidly that it seem- ed almost like an explosion, Firemen fighting the conflag- ration attributed the stubbornness of the fire to the presence of a considerable amount of for paper in the construction of the house. Smoke from the fire billowed into the air and was visible for a con- siderable distance. Mr. Starr is a crane operator at the McCleary Timber plant here. The loss probably will run hes tween $2000 and $2500 on the house and furnishings, at least part of which is covered by in- surance, Mr. and ‘Mrs. Starr owned the house. Annual Booster Program Tonite For Shelton C.C.l Opening with the usual 6:30 dinner, the annual booster meet- ings of the Shelton Chamber of Commerce will be held this eve- ning in the Shelton Hotel ban- quet room as new officers of the body take up the reins for 1941.

These tragedies can be prevented largely by the exten- adopted at this week’s board meet- ing. The various items comprising the total of the emergency include $15.39 for sponsor’s contributions in W.P.A. projects, $500 for the primary election, $375 for the gen- eral election, $200 for general ad- ministration, $650 for jail opera- tion and maintenance, $158 for the sheriff's office, $38.45 for justice court, $55.75 for the prosecuting attorney, and $60 for the county coroner. Another action by the board this week was acceptance of the bid of Al Huerby Motors to sup- ply a new car for the sheriff's office. It was the lowest of five bids submitted. FERRIS TO BE SEATED AS COMMISSIONER MONDAY Fred Ferris Jr. of Skokomish COMMUNITY CALENDAR Tomorrow, Montesano Here Bellarmine Comes to Lincoln Gym. Tuesday for Games If the laurel wreath of basket- ball victory is to rest on the brows of the Shelton Highclimbers this season the most likely opportun- ities of the schedule knock at the Highclimber door this Friday and next Tuesday evenings. Friday the Red and Black prep quintet, which has lost 25 straight games, is host to the Bellarmine Lions of Tacoma in a non-confer- ence scrap in Lincoln gym. The next Tuesday the first con- ference competition of the season on the Highclimber home floor brings the Montesano Bulldogs to Lincoln gym. Bellarmine won a practice vic- tory over Shelton, 27 to 12, in a pro-Christmas contest, while Mon-I tesano sprang a mild surprise by defeating the highly rated Elma Eagles at Elma last Friday, 17 to 13, as the first round of confer- ence play was held. Coach Frank Willard indicated' after last night’s practice that he would show a revamped lineup for the Bellarmine game, one which will, sacrifice size and height to get speed and finesse. This new lineup will feature Earl Lums- den, junior, and Jess Phillips, sop- homore, at forwards; Ken Fred- son, junior, at center; and Jim McComb and George Valley, let- termen seniors, at guards. This shift will bench Jim Rose. senior, who has started all games so far at Center. Inexperience is |Rose’s handicap, off setting his lsize too greatly. , Phillips will be making his first Istart but the sophomore has been 1 showing up so well in practice and when he has been sent into games .that Coach Willard is rewarding ,the black-haired lad with a start- ing assignment.
