Wright, o€w%e\riew, one of the outstanding Vintners of the state and pioneer of Wash- ington’s fast-growing wine indus— try, was re-elected president of the Washington Wine Council at that organization’s annual meet- ing, held recently in Seattle. Other officers of the Council re-elected were: vice-president, J. C. Sams. manager, National Wine Company, Seattle; treasurer, Otis B. Harlan, Washingtdn‘ Distiller- ies, Seattle; and the board of di-v rectors, Wright, Sams, Harlan, W. B. Bridgman, Upland Winery, Sun— nyside; Charles Somers, St. Char- I l l les Winery, Grapeview; A. E. Rasmussen, Rasmussen Winery, Sultan; and Kenneth A. Tuttle, Connoisseur Wineries, Seattle. Wright's plant is located on. Stretch Island, in Mason County, where in 1872 the first grapevine was set out in the Northwest. Last year Washington’s wineries used not only 8,358,000 pounds of grapes, but 11,822,000 pounds of other Washington fruits— apples. loganberries, currants, blackber- ries, cherries and other wine fruits —to produce 1,854,000 gallons of Washington wine. Home Labor, Products Entirely By legislative enactment, Wash- ington wineries are permitted to use only Washington fruits and Washington labor in the produc- tion of “Washington” wines. Progress of the wine-making in- dustry in Washington, as it_ ap- proaches its fifth anniversary next month, was hailed by Wright as “exceptionally good" at the meeting. “Last year, for the first time, Washington wines outsold all out- -of-state and foreign wines in state sales," Wright declared. “For an industry that was virtually non- existent five years ago, this marks‘ (Continued on page Two) State Testers For Cars Start 55-Day Schedule Testing equipment of the state highway department was in Shel- ton at the city dock station yes- terday and today and will be again tomorrow under a new schedule to start the 1941 car testing program; The state testers will return here in two weeks, February 17. 18 and 19, while the same dates in March, 3, 4 and 5, and 17, 18 and 19, will also find the testers back again. The testing station will be open from eight until noon and from one to five each of those days. The state testers are now operating a shuttle schedule among the communities of Shel- ton, Bremerton, Port Angeles and Port Townsend covering two week periods. Cars which failed to go thru the state test in 1940 are request- ed to be brought in first for the 1941 test, but any car will be tested whether it has the 1940 seal or not. I President,I funds necessary to complete the last two blocks of the Railroad Avenue beautification project this ispring will be made by the Shel- ton Garden Club, sponsors of the .....under.taking, I, Mrsu Vassar-get Cropper, club president, announc- ed today. The club now has $200 in” its treasury to put into the project but $800 will be necessary to complete the planting and install an adequate sprinkling system, Mrs. Cropper pointed out. Two events are planned for this month to swell the fund. One will be sponsorship in cooperation with the city basketball league of the exhibition basketball game on February 18 which the All-Ameri- can Red Heads, premier touring girls basketball team, will play against the Shelton town team. Net proceeds of the game will be divided equally by the Garden Club and the city basketball lleague, which booked the famous feminine hoopsters as a means of raising funds to pay its rent bill at the gym but offered to share receipts with the Garden Club to help the beautification project along. The Garden Club will con- duct an advance ticket sale for the game, Mrs. Cropper said. lGarden. Club Embarks 0n Beautification Fund Drivel Second event on the fund—rais- ing program by the Garden Club will be a big public bridge lunch- eon to be given during the week ‘of Washington’s birthday in Mem- orial Hall. An exact date for the event will bevselected' later, Mrs. Cropper said. Committees to ar- range details of the bridge lunch- eon, as well as the basketball ticket sales committee, will be available for announcement in Thursday’s Journal, Mrs. Cropper promised. Later in the spring a dance is planned by the Garden Club and other events to complete the beau— tification project fund will be ar~ ranged. In the meantime, all do- nations which individuals or or- ganizations may feel inclined to make to the fund will be greatly appreciated, Mrs. Cropper stated. “Raising the additional money which‘we need to complete our fund means a great deal of work for our organization, so any as- sistance we receive from other or- ganizations and individuals will be. helping to wind up a very worth while work.” the Garden Club president explained. “We want to complete the project this spring so the first two blocks won’t get too great a head start on these last two." LUMBERING NOT DESTRUCTIVE INDUSTRY, ANSWERS EXECUTIVE Tacoma, Jan. 31. -* “Is the Lumber Industry Prepared to Meet the Challenge of 1941 ?” On this subject President Corydon Wagner of the West Coast Lum- bermen’s Association addressed WCLA members in their Annual Meeting at Tacoma this morning. Reminding the lumbermen that Paul Bunyan, and not Caspar Milquetoast, was their patron saint, he urged them to face their public relations and trade prob— lems in the year ahead with their “traditional” enterpriSe, courage and perseverance." In this spirit President Wagner cited criticisms which have been directed against the industry, with vast publicity, in recent months, and answered them. The Association,head dealt at greatest length with the endlessly repeated charge that lumbering is a destructive industry. The most effective answer to this charge, he said, is in the findings of the U. S. Forest Service's recently completed Forest Survey. “Its particular value,” Mr. Wag— ner said, “lies in the putting to rest of the timeworn bogey of an imminent timber famine. With particular reference to our Doug- las fir forests, it concludes that lands now cut are producing growth equal to. one-half the present drain, but that when the stagnant mature forests have been harvested and there is additional growth per acre on all the area equal to the average growth on cutover lands today, the future to- tal growth will exceed total drain by four per cent . . . “Our industry has by no means finished its job of reforestation but it has made a good beginning. .The greatest stimulation that can come to the business of growing new forests is to make that busi- ness profitable; more intensive utilization of new markets for our forest prod- ucts . . . “The challenge of 1941 is to return the lumber industry to its proper place in the esteem of the American people . . . It involves rebuilding confidence in our prod- ucts, in the future of our industry, and in the spirit of private enter~ prise.” Skokomish Indian, 80, Dies Sunday Edward J. Smith, 80-year-old Skokomish Indian Reservation resident, was buried Monday af- ternoon after funeral services con- ducted from the reservation church. He died at his home on the reservation Sunday after an extended illness. Surviving are his widow, Ka- therine, two sons, John and A1- bert, living on the Skokomish res- ervation; and one daughter, Mrs. Margaret Robels of Los Angeles. Mr. Smith was born in April, 1861, at Copalis Beach, Wash. He had resided on the Skokomish Reservation for the past three years. Firemen Douse Blaze At Their Chief’s Home City volunteer firemen who an- swered an alarm last night dis- covered they had been called to the home of their chief, Dean Car- men, to douse a chimney blaze when they arrived at 1233 Frank- lin street. ' The residence is occupied by Frank G. Russell, furniture store salesman. No damage to the house and that means was done. .i l... D Consolidated with The Shelton Independent ‘ TNQ IN IIQUGR TAX DISTRIBUTID Despite Population Gain Here De- crease Comes Because Of Greater Rural Growth. In State l Although Mason County rural population gained over 1000 be- tween 1930 and 1940, by an odd quirk of figures liquor profit ap- portionments to be paid to the county treasurer by the state liq- uor control board will be less un- der the 1940 population figures than they were under the 1930 figures. A letter explaining the unusual situation was sent to Deputy Treasurer Nolan Mason by Liquor Board Chairman L. E. Gregory in response to an inquiry made by Mason on the subject. The letter pointed out that al- though the rural Mason County population had jumped from 6869 in 1930 to 7896 in 1940, the gain in rural areas throughout the state had been even greater in proportion, or from 537,870 to 666,328 in the ten-year period. Thus where the per capita share [of liquor profits allotted to coun- .ties had been $0.120847 under 1930 census figures, or $842.19 to Ma- son County of each $500,000 “mel- on” sliced up, now the per capita Share is only $0.0975495, or $770.25 to Mason County on each $500,000 split, or a decrease of $47.42 over previous cuts. Liquor profits are divided in this fashion: 52 percent to the cities, 35 percent to the state, and 13 percent to the counties, the letter pointed out. Thus out of each $500,000 split, the counties divide approximately $65,000. In the case of the cities, as was pointed out last week, Shelton en- joys a substantial gain in its liq- uor tax apportionments under 1940 population figures, this be- ing due to the fact that while Shelton showed a population gain the 1940 census showed a drop in urban populations throughout the Istate as a whole. As a result :Shelton will receive $141.39 more on each $500,000 liquor profit di- vision than it did under the 1930 population figures, so weighing one against the other, Shelton’s gain against the county's loss, as' a whole this community benefits.

O. Biehl, near- by resident, when he drove his car into the Skokomish River Fri- day night near the old hatchery on the Purdy Canyon cutoff road, Vernon E. Ricketts, Potlatch Route, was fined $50 on drunken driving charges and his license was revoked for one year by Jus- tice M. C. Zintheo, Saturday. Police Chief Ray Starwich, hap- pening to be returning home from Hood Canal at ,the time, brought Ricketts in to the city jail. The charges were preferred by State Patrolman Cliff Aden. Bert Bennett, Route 3, was fined a total of $77.50 on three charges, $50 for drunken driving, $15 for resisting an officer, and $10 for driving without a license, with $2.50 court costs added, by 'Jus- tice M. C. Zintheo Saturday after Bennett’s arrest by Aden when Bennett almost hit the officer’s patrol car near the airport. Three cars, all of ancient vint- age, were practically demolished and two occupants of one of them, Tony Sikunas and Mary Snider, both of Bremerton, were treated at Shelton hospital for minor in- juries suffered in an odd three- car accident on Olympic highway at Mt. View early Sunday morn- ing. . Sikunas’ car struck the rear of a car driven by Percy Adams of Shelton which was pushing an— other car operated by Bertha Ho- bucket, Taholah Indian. Jack Hembury, 16, of Lilliwaup, reported a car he was operating Sunday evening was damaged when it ran into the ditch near the Skokomish Bridge on the Olympic highway after the lights failed as he dimmed them for an approaching car. Damages estimated at $70 to each machine were inflicted in a collision of cars operated by Went- sul W. Tschoepl, Mannette, and Richard Baker, Fort Lewis sol- dier, near Hoodsport Sunday.

WEBB BACKED BY SP‘DRTSMEN FOR GAME POST Nlason County Man Supported To Fill Vacancy Now In State Commission From Peninsula If power of persuasion can help him, Tom Webb, former Mason County commissioner and a prom- inent Republican wheelhorse lo- cally, may be the next member of the state game commission from the Olympic Peninsula district. Support of the Hood Canal Sportsmens Association w a s thrown behind Webb at the or- ganization‘s January m e e t i n g Thursday evening at Hoodsport and the backing of other sports- mens groups on the peninsula and Southwest Washington will be sought by the canal association. The Mason County Republican central committee has promised to recommend Webb to Governor Langlie, according to a report- made to the sportsmen by George Hixon at Thursday‘s session. Peninsula Post Vacated Resignation recently of Harry LeGear of Port Angeles leaves a position open on the game com- mission which the Hood Canal group would have 'filled by the appointment of Webb. Featuring business of the Jan— uary session was the annual re- port of the game fish committee, presented by Hixon on behalf of Gene Martin, committee chair- man. Outstanding in the report was the prediction that a new policy adopted by the game department in which fish plantings are to be allocated according to the amount of suitable water rather than the number of licenses sold in each county will be of direct benefit to Mason County, resulting in con- siderably increased plantings due to the large number of exception- ally fine streams and lakes here. Action Commended The report went on to say that the commission also plans to make its plantings earlier in the sea- son hereafter so that all fish planted may be inner ,anellt. was for before the Weather becomes too hot. Rearing of fish to at least fingerling size before re- lease is another change the re- port commended on the part of the game department. The report said that a total of 1,025,510 fish had been planted by the state game department during 1940 in Mason County wa- ters, most of them of fingerling size,>with a total of 235,363 be- ing rainbow trout. An addition- al 196,500 trout were salvaged from Vance Creek this past year, a somewhat reduced salvage due to high water. Of the Vance Creek salvage, 2500 were finger- marked by the game department for future observation before be- ing dumped into Lake Cushman. Lake Cushman catch records, the report continued, showed that 5,531 fishermen who made reports had caught 47,955 fish, or 3. av- erage of 8.67 per angler, a nice increase over the 1939 average catch. Attractive Prizes Up Reporting on the predatory hunt which started January 1 under the sportsmens association aus- pices, Chairman Allie RobinSOn said a nice start has been made with several entries already in and a valuable prize list shaping up. A 25-35 carbine rifle has been donated by the Lumbermen’s Mer- cantile for the adult first prize, while a 20-gauage repeating shot- gun donated by the Driskel Hard- ware may be used as a junior div- ision first prize, Robinson said. Other prizes will be announced soon, he said. The contest closes June 30. Taking action on proposals for legislation, the association favor~ ed the Tacoma Sportsmens so- ciation proposal to revise he bounty schedule on predatory ani‘ mals by changing the fishing and |hunting license fees, separating the two. The Olympia Poggie club‘s protest against the game commission‘s action in .setting aside two Washington streams for fly fising only was tabled. Roy Kimbel favored the sports- men with an hour and a half’s showing of colored motion pic- tures of his trip to Alaska and the Yukon Territory last spring, showing six ZOO-foot reels of film. Following the session the ga- thering enjoyed hot-dogs and cof- fee.
