Germany has failed so far be-l cause of the British navy. except for which England would have . gone the way of Poland. Norway 1: and the low countries. The navy has also been effective in the Mediterranean campaigns, and in maintaining the British three week food supply, but the greatest feat in history was the evacuation of the British force from France, ‘as much a success as Napoleon’s 'retreat from Moscow was failure. This was Hitler‘s first setback, and marked a change of policy, Jew bailiting has changed to hatred of England, war-mongers and Roosevelt, Paganism to placating, the Catholic Church, and now al.’ partnership with God. l l l i I Crisis Brings {Unity The devastation by bombs in England has brought about the union of all political parties, rcal— ization by the common man that his prized liberty was at stake, and real democracy in the rubbing of shoulders in equality with noble and plebean alike, with the King hailed as “Winny,” and the Queen as “Our Liz.” in the shelters l l Charity enters the picture be- cause half the..nct..proceeds arc County “fight infantile paralysis fund" while the Globe Trotters are donating an additional ten percent of their share of the gate receipts to the same cause.

The finest colored players from coast to coast have been brought together. 5 VlCtS, 2 Newcomers The squad includes sucn veter- ans as Inman, Jackson, Bernard Price, Louis Pressley, Ted Strong and “Sonny” Boswell, and two newcomers, Hillary Brown and Agis Bray. Strong, also a prominent Negro baseball player, is reputed to haveI the largest hands in basketball. None of the players is under 6 feet, tall and most of them are taller, ranging up to 6 feet 4 inches.

Attendance at the! being turned over to the Mason‘ ed France. and England dallicd at the outset, with only the Navy as its full protector. Democra- cies do not move so swiftly as dictatorships, and this country was talking about balancing the budget until just before it com- menced to throw out its billions. Answering the question if Eng- land can be invaded the speaker explained the shore lines all around the island, the shoals and beaches and the difficulty of land- ing large vessels except at ports, and the danger of transporting in small vessels across the channel, the foggy nights. and the strong defenses which England has set up to greet any invader. This ex- plains why Hitler has not made the attempt, and the Navy still controls the seas to protect Eng- land. Help Essential To Victory To the question whether Eng- land can win; without the enorv imous aid from United States, he lanswered “No.” But with the Ihelp,'~ England is certain to win. 'and may find it possible to be-l come the invader of France. NotI in 1941, but maybe by 1943, The defeat of Italy is one straw, stif- fened Bulgaria, the defense of Greece, the changed attitude of the Balkans, Russia wariness, Jap- ’5 growing weakness, and the unrest of French and other sub- jugated peoples are all hopeful signs The bombing, Mr. Bishop concluded, is serious, but he points out that there are twenty miles of docks alone on the Thames as well as hundreds in British ports, and the losses so far inflicted have not yet stopped supplies, or weakened the morale of the peo- ple; and with full American aid no one questions the outcome. There are many other points which Mr. Bishop promises to en- large upon at another time. A pleasing interlude in the pro- gram were cowboy songs by lit- tle Jeanine Mitchell in full regalia. accompanied by Miss Lorraine Mitchell on the guitar. 470 Lose Voting Right In County When Miss Mildred Parsons. auditor’s office Clerk. completed Tuesday the bienniel task of cans ceiling registrations of voters in rural precincts who had not exer- cised their privilege in two years there were 470 less names on the iregistration rolls of Mason Coun- ty’s rural precincts.

Chief Starwich kept a record from accident reports made dur- ing 1940, placing a pin on a map of the city at every spot where an accident occurred dur- ing the year. The two intersec- tions mentioned already each had four- accidents during the year, closely followod by the intersec- tions of Railroad with First and Railroad with Fifth with three accidents apiece during the year. In all, the accident map com- piled by Chief Starwich carried 55 pins for as many traffic None, fortunately, were of a fatal nature.

Two) Heart Attack Takes Rayonier Employe’s Life Stricken by a heart attack, James Young, 49, employc of the Rayonier plant here for 13 years, died a short time after being taken to Shelton hospital last night from his Agate home. Funeral rites will be conducted by Dr, Robert Brumblay, Method- ist‘ pastor, at four o'clock Satur— day from Witsiers Chapel. Pall bearers will be called from Local 161. pulp mill union. Surviving are the widow, Sarah, two sons, John H., and James 0., one daughter, Nina E., all living at the Agate home; a brother, Charles, and three sisters, Eva, Lucy, and Dolly, whose addresses were not immediately learned.

Gene Insel is the 1940 hawk shooting champion of the Lake Isabella Insel brothers, thanks to a last-minute “rally” which broke a tie with Brother Bill. Seems that Gene up and pot- ted a hawk just about dusk on December 31, last,-giving him 24 hawks for the year against Bill’s 23. Brothers Waldo and Fred between them had nine other hawks, for a year's total of 54 in 1940. The hawks must be learning to keep out of range of the In- sel brothers' guns, or maybe there just aren’t as many hawks since the lnsel brothers started laying for them, but the fact remains that during 1939 the brothers bagged 15 hawks am- ongst them. Being champion hawk shooter among the lnsel brothers has ,no reward other than the sat- isfaction as there is no prize in the contest. _ ._ _ __._ _._._._.__..___.____.__.__.._—- ,.__..___. _._ Sim pson- Logging Co Fifty years in one job or line of employment or locale is quite uncommon in restless American life. and this is particularly true in the West, so when one man re- mains in the employment of one concern from its inception through its advances over a half century this is so rare in community or even'in national life as to be wor- thy of a newspaper story. January first of this year mark- ed the fiftieth anniversary of the first employment of Arthur B. Govey with Sol. G. Simpson in the logging camp on the Blakely Rail- road. which has continued through all the years with the Simpson Logging Company as the oper- ations continued and expanded to become one of the largest logging and milling concerns- of the North- west of this day through the wis- dom and good judgment of the * founder, Sol. Simpson and his early associates A. H. Anderson and Mark Reed, Historic Old Desk Next in interest ill the affairs of the Simpson Company is the old desk behian which Mr. Govey sits every day and over which has passed much of the important de- tail of the vast industry of which he shares the responsibillty as vice-president and director. This old desk was acquired by the company in its early days when “headquarters” was at Matlock and when its offices canto to Shel- 'ton back in 1903. Mr. Govey and his desk were planted in the lit- itle corner where both still hold iforth with a modesty hardly in ikecping with the importance of ,Wh'clt passes that way. Naturally. as with those who treasure old things and keepsakes, and particularly old desks which have more or less pleasant mem- ories, besides the pile of old pa. pers and treasures that none may disturb or tidy up, there are scores of clippings. books, and pic- tures which date back to those early days, and which can be dug out on occasion to refresh mem- ory and confute others who may take issue in bits of old-time his- tory which are within the mem- l I SHE l Mr. and Mrs. Bruce Wilcox saw the “usual” things in Los An- gelcs and found them highly “un- usual,” they related upon their return to Shelton recently from a three week vacation trip into the south. “We didn't attempt to do a thing out of the ordinary," Mr. Wilcox, proprietor of the Wilcox 5c and 10c store here, said yes- terday, “and we found the usual things in Los Angeles highly novel to us.” Mr. Wilcox spent some time visiting the business erltablish- merits in the several community centers which comprise the out- skirts of Los Angeles, particularly in the Wiltshire district, and was amazed at the distinctiveness, moderness, attractiveness and un- usualness of the stores. This he found quite in contrast to the stores in downtown Los Angeles, which he said are no different than the usual store of the North- west. Backdoor Popular Entrance But progress certainly has struck the suburban business dis- tricts. One of the unique features of these suburban stores the Shelton businessman found to be the “backdoor” entrance, which is used by the greater part of the trade. This, he said, is due to the free parking lots maintained by these stores at the rear of their premises. so a great majority of Arthur B. Govey ObsYarves 50th Anniversary With Other Things, Quietly LTONIANS FIND ‘USUAL; THINGS IN 1.. A. jUNUSUAL’ Twice a Week TUESDAY and THURSDAY mpany_ As In All cry of the owner. The picture is: typical of both desk and owner and looks as natural today as for many years that are past, in- cluding the pipe, and it may be hoped for many that are ahead. Native Londoner Arthur B. Govey was born in London, England, in 1871 and as a young lad found his way to America and soon to Mason Colin- ty, Where in January of 1889 he landed a job working in the log- ging camp of Pete Peterson, a. pioneer logger who was operating an ox-team-cornp on the Blake- ly Railroad at what is known as Maxwell Hill. or Summit, There he started at the bottom and “greased” skids ahead of the ox- en. rustled grub and made him- self useful around the camp. These were the real pioneer days when camps were made up of cock house, bunkhouse and ox "hovel." the latter about as com~ fortablc as the men‘s quarters, and log prices as well wages were down to bedrock. Other Old Timers Mr. Govey gets another chuck— lc out of the recollection of his first meeting with “Billy” Parker, who came with his parents to “Blaker Y,” in 1889, as a lad of nine, living, on the. Maxwell ranch. still owned and occupied by Joseph Maxwell. Young Go- vey was greasing skids in his first job for Pete Peterson, and the “bull puncher” was Bill Forbes, who can now be found operating the boats and cabins at Arcadia. The camp was near the road, then as now, and G0ch saw a barefoot boy trudging along with a bucket and asked what he‘ had, getting the answer of “eggs.” Now, hen fruit in those days were not On the camp menu and Arthur asked what he wanted for them. "Billy's answer was that his mother sent him to the store at Elma. and expected to get a dollar in trade. Arthur dug up a big silver dollar, incidentally the only one he had or perhaps there was in the whole camp, and dickered for the eggs, but it was Continued on Page Three l the patrons thus are encouraged to drive in to do their shopping. A sister and her husband of Mrs. Wilcox escorted the Shelton couple around to the most inter- esting spots in the southern metro- polis. A visit to the famous “Brown Derby" resulted in one of the hu- morous incidents which will live in Mr. Wilcox’s memory of the trip. As he and his brother-in-law walked into the night spot Mr. Wilcox spied a chunky, childish looking individual seated at one of the tables who looked very fa- miliar. Seen Him Before, Yes “You from Washington?” the Sheltonian asked, “Seems like I’ve seen you somewhere before." Then he was informed the “familiar face” was that of the fat boy in “Our Gang" comedies, who actu- ally, Mr. Wilcox was astonished to learn, is a midget and is 23 years old. The midget sat with Mr. Wilcox and his relative during most of the evening and pointed out other movie stars as they came and went. a “My brother-in-law, being a Cal- ifornian, knew just how to min- gle with the big shots and it was quite an experience." Mr. Wilcox admitted. Doing the “usual” things didn't Pasadena include visits to the Rose Festival or to the Rose Bowl football game, Mayor Stevenson Announces Coun- cil Committees.

Faubert and Coun- cilman Cntto. (State law provides that the, mayor, treasurer and one council member comprise the fin- ance committee.) Under the parks and city prop- erty committee, Mayor Stevenson explained today that laws govern- ing third class cities grant the- mayor the right to appoint a park committee outside the city coun- cil, but that at this time his thought is that the committee should be within the council and as such should formulate a. pro- gram and execute the same inde- pendent of the council insofar as possible. " ' The iii-e. light and water com- mittee. will have one of the most important duties of the coming bicnniem for in its hands lies the task of mapping the program of improvements and extensions to the city water systems which were approved by the voters of the city in the passage of the $50,000 water revenue bond issue last month. In addition to Mayor Stevenson, the new councilmcn who will be taking their first official action as city officers are S. A. Hatchet. A. D. Killmcr and John Sullivan. The new council and mayor officially took over the reins of municipal government at a special council meeting a. week ago Monday but at that time no business was at— tempted, the action being merely the formality of seating the new officers and “unseating” the retir- ing officers. Mayor Stevenson said the new traffic ordinance which was pass- ed as the last act of the old coun- Mar- lcll will. be enforced as quickly as proper signs and markings can be placed in the areas affected by the new regulations. T. B. League In Annual Luncheon Session Friday Although the annual Christmas Seal Campaign formally closed on Christmas Day, returns from stamp sales are still coming in, it was revealed today by Mrs. Ver- non Davidson, executive secretary of the Mason County Tuberculosis League. “Here is a check» for the Christ- lmas Seals I received," wrote one l late donor. “I‘m sorry to be so slow. but I was out of town until recently. Another explained a late but substantial contribution by saying that he received an unexpected office bonus Christmas Eve, but didn‘t get his letter written until this week. “I wanted to send something earlier,” said one worker. “but I was unemployed. However, I got a job starting after New Year's and out of my first week's pay I'm sending you what I can. I lgnow how bad tuberculosis can 63.
