!; 6 SEELTON--MASON COUNTY JOURNAl;- Publisld in "Ohzstmastown, U.B.A., Shelon. Washington H0odsp0rt Woman Describes Trip To Australia and By Joyce Scott OODSPORT. Two hours slipped by like minutes as I sat catting with Rule Dickinson about her recent trip to Australia. Many travel, but not all have the ability to relate their experiences in such an interesting manner. It really wouldn't be a bad idea for us to chip in and send Rule off to all the interesting places we long to see, than sit at her feet. so to speak, and relive the trip with her! The S. S. Liberia, carrying 1,300 passengers and a crew of 700, left Vancouver, B. C., Oct. 10. The first night out they met HEnri- cane Karen. The winds were fierce enough to toss the ship so that Rule, good sailor that she is, was the only one at her table for five days. A one-day stop each in San Francisco and Long Beach made it possible for her to have a brief visit with friends in both cities. Five days at sea brought them to PIonolulu, where a day was 'spent touring the island. Their next stop was Yokohama. Rule took a four-day inland tour which gave her a new appreciation for the Japanese people a.s she was able to meet and mingle with them in varied situations. The millions of people and the over-crowded traf- fic conditions, especially the 600 express trains daily in operation in Tokyo, were a sight to behold. And from her vivid description, a horror to board or to depart from as .they stop for only one minute. Fifty-six tourists were in her party so the guide hd to be an expert to get them lined up and instructed so that no one was left at the station! New highways and new buildings were much in evidence as Japan is busily pre- the Far East ship next docker] in HonK Kong, in the harbor at Kowloon where 150 ships were tied up. A friend of Mrs. Nancy Yates was very gracious in showing Rule around Hang Kong. At one time they were in an area where they could look over into Communist terri- tory. Rule had her first rickshaw ride here. The man she judged to be past sixty, ran twelve blocks nearly as fast as a taxi would have been able to go. The gov- ernment has built huge apart- ments, housing as many as 3.000 in a single building in an attempt to do away with the thousands of squatter's huts in the slum area. Mrs. Dickinson found six people living in a single room about 10 by 12 feet in one of these build- ings. Leaving Hang Kong, they sailed through the China Sea enjoying soft Trade Winds and sunny skies. Manila was the next stop. A visit was made to the William Mc- Kinley MonumEntal Cemetery where there are 70.000 graves, only 17.000 of these being nmned. Each grave is marked by a marble cross or Star of David brought from Italy. In the three major colleges in Manila over 100.000 students are enrolled. In spite of the cultural trend and the lovely flowers. Rule felt this city dE- pressing due to the sight of these many graves of tim war dead and the extreme poverty seen on every hand. Seven days at sea brought them to Sydney, Australia. where friends she had made on a trip to Europe several years ago met her. The next two weeks were the most interesting and educational of the entire trip. She visited Carn beE'ra, the capital city, and paring for the 1964 Olympics.

Dear Mr. Dickie: Amid your shower of editorial bouquets for the retiring PUD manager and praise for his com- missioners, let me rmse one dis- for a number of years, it was a source of income for about 30 years, my husband worked there. and my son and other members of nay family also. The cost to build that pulp mill was huge, yet there it stands like a ghost town doing nobody any good. Why couldn't it be turned into a cannery? This is a berry country, and there are fish. clams and oysters. I believe Among Your Merchants PERSONNEL CHANGES AT KIMBEL MOTORS NOTED Several personnel changes at Kimbel Motors Inc, local Chrys- ier. Plymouth, Valiant. Interna- tional agency, were announced this week by President Jack Kim- bel. A1 Munro has sold his interest in the firm to take other employ- ment and his position as firm ac- countant and office manager has been taken by Mrs. Shirley Jen- sen. Duane Dewell has been succeed- ed as shop foreman by ClaUde Ir- win, who has been with Kimbel's for 15 years, following Dewell's acceptance of a position in the Simpson Timber Company garage. Wilfred White, head of the firm's body and fender shop for several years, has leased that de- partment and is now operating it as his own business under the name of "Whitey's Auto Body", in the same location.

Grapeview re- sident were saddened by the death of Charles Anderson last Thurs- day. "Uncle Charlie," as he was fondly know- by his many friends, was born ]n Munsala. Finland. March 12. 1877 and was in his 86th year. He had lived in the Grape- view area since 1920 where he had operated a farm. these past two years (to the day) having been spent in the home of his niece, Mrs. Ann Westberg. Survivors other than Mrs. Westberg and daughter Marcella included five nephews and four nieces. Fu- neral selwices were held at 2 p.m. SatEmday at the Batstone Funeral Home in Shelton, and "Uncle Char- lie" was laid to rest in the Shel- ton .Memorial 'Park. We are delighted to see Walter Eckert up and about again, driv- ing in to Kiwanis etc. Eckert was released from the Clinic Hospital last Wednesday after a brief stay there. Mrs. Walter Clayton St. after spending a few days at home was admitted to the St. Peter's Hos- pital in Olympia last Wednesday where she underwent major sur- gery ThursdAy morning. Her con- dition at the time of this writing is improving very satisfactorily, we are most happy to note, alth- ough she has been unavoidably uncomfortable. Mrs. Ray Uhly is still recuperat- ing. Iron 3 surgery at the St. Fran- ces Xavier Cabrini Hospital ih Seattle, with frequent visits from Mr. Uhly cheering her on. May we wish her a speedy recovery. ARRIVING back at their Ben- son Lake home Saturday after- non the Bill Staudts brought with them pleasant memories of a seve- ral weeks holiday in California spent with family and friends.

Those enjoying their hospitality were Rod and Sil- via Hansen. Ann Westberg, Frank and Elaine Kowalc.zyk and Phyl- lis Lutz. A delicious midnight sup- per of Chinese food was enjoyed by all. At the Don Pogreba's residence 18 guests joined them New Year's Eve to see out the old year and ring in the new. "Helping" them with this "Chore", most enthusi- astically, were Art and Ernestine Nicklaus, Russ and Ruth Wells, joyed and appreciated by Mrs. Flo- Howard and Murial Somers, Ed rence Palms.

The girls had to return to Milbray but Florence stayed on until New Year's Day when she too returned to Milbray. At this time Pat took advantage of having, two days off by showing Florence a little of this area of California. The first day was spent visiting Hillsdale. Fri- day, they explored several of San Francisco's spots of interest; Chi- natown, lunch at Fisherman's Wharf and browsing in the fabu- lous Import and Export shops.

The Querys were most fortunate, in- deed. to have Den's great-aunt and uncle, Mr. and Mrs. Orlin Black, awaiting them, on both the east- ward and westward trip, with their hospitality at Nampa, Idaho, for the overnight necessary when driving as far as Rigby. Clear roads, no snow or ice, made for good traveling both ways and the vacation was enjoyed by all.

I have no desire to take any- thing away from anyone complet- ing a 10ng and faithful service to his public but I would remind you that this same group of PUD ad- ministrators has not always drawn the same compliments from the public that the Journal has so often bestowed on them. It was essentially this same group which built the oX, ersized PUD office building in spite of repeated protests from large num- bers of aroused customers. It was this stone group which spent thou- sands of our dollars building a switching station without permis- sion in a residential zone, only to tear it down again after the error was made public. It is this same group which still upholds one of the highest electric rate structures in the state, long after the necessity has become doubtful. The Journal hastens to tag the newly appointed PUD manager as a protege of these men who,"ex- pert continuation" of policy, but I prefer to believe he has a ind of his own and will profit from their mistakes. Very truly yours, ROBERT S. HOIT. USE THE PULP MILL Dear Sir: As others write in their ideas,. I thought I would try it. I don't know as tt wiIl do any good, but I have been tiinking of this for sometime, and it dosen't hurt to try. rm thinking of the old pulp mill that has been standing empty maybe the farmers round about would be interested in raising ve- getables, fruits and other kinds of produce. Also this building is situated right on the waterfront which would bE ideal. This is just a thought. Mrs. Evelene Farrell 103 So. 12th apt. 5.

A day was spent in the Fiji Is- lands where beautiful tropical vegetation was seen before the ship left for tIawaii.
