Vopat, son of Mr. and d Vopat Shelton, was recruit training at Training Center, San Highis School.a 1970 graduate of 3range Hall First & Third After seizures on two consecutive mornings, Charles Allison entered Mason General Hospital on December 24 and was placed in the extensively equipped Coronary Care Unit, where two nurses are in constant attendance and a monitor above the bed indicates at all times the exact condition of the patient. His demand pacemaker was implanted on December 30, after which he was returned to the Coronary Care Unit for five days. Following a stay of two additional days in regular hospital accomodations, he was discharged on January 6. The artificial pacemaker is but one of the many life-saving developments brought about by research, into which since 1949 the American Heart Association, its affiliates and subdivisions, have channeled more than 163.7 million dollars. At present the Heart Association is supporting or assisting approximately 1400 medical scientists who are seeking new and more effective ways to prevent and control the disorders of the cardiovascular system. Allison and his wife, Liz, have since 1964 been year-round residents of Harstine Island having, upon his retirement, remodeled their summer cabin into a permanent home. They have two sons and two grandchildren. Charles Allison hopes to soon resume his hobbies. "I enjoy working on my home," he says, "and I like to play golf." (Continued from Page 1.) ran out to about a minus tour foot tide, and, that he maintained a line of stakes marked with signs between his property and the adjoining public beach. Gray said he noticed the man and woman come across the property line onto his property, but, did nothing about it until they started to dig. He then sent his son down to tell them they were on private property and they would have to move. He stated the boy returned and told him the people refused to leave, and, that when he (Gray) saw the man move out into the water a short distance and start to dig again, he went down himself to tell them to move. Gray said the man refused to leave when he asked him to explaining he was on private property. He stated he then ordered the man to leave, and, when he stated he didn't have to and kept right on digging he grabbed the shovel and attempted to get it away from him (Birdsall) to prevent any further damage to his property. He stated they struggled over the shovel, and, that after they had gone out into the water about 40 or 50 feet, he (Gray) fell into the water, and, as he started to get up, Birdsall knocked him back down with the shovel. He stated that while he was laying partially down in the water, Birdsall had raised the shovel above his head and told Gray he could finish him now, but, that he (Gray) should get out of there and leave him alone. Gray said he got out of the way of the shovel, and, when he got to shallow water, he began to run. As he ran past one of the buckets, he kicked it over. Gray stated Birdsall then swung the shovel at him using it like a baseball bat.

G2/4-11 Birdsall swung, Gray stated, he ducked the blow, and, the second time, he blocked the blow with his hand and hit Birdsall over the back with a bucket. He said the two wrestled around a bit more, and, then as things quieted down a little, agreed to go to the sheriff with the problem. He stated that Birdsall bent over to pick up his buckets and other equipment, he (Gray) "booted" him in the rear end. Later, under cross examination by Sutherland, Gray answered when asked why he had kicked Birdsall as he was bent over picking up his gear, he answered that when he saw Birdsall stooped over "it was just too much of a temptation". Gray stated that after Birdsall recovered his equipment and they started to walk away, Birdsall began leaving in the opposite direction instead of going with The Mason County Commission, in a letter to the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers this week, asking for approval of six applications for bulkheads and fills which would assist in holding the North Shore Road. The bulkheads are all in the Belfair and Tahuya area. County Engineer J.C. Bridger told the commission the county has already spent thousands of dollars in rip rap to hold the county road and that approval of these bulkheads would be beneficial, not only to the property owners but to the county road department and the public in general. Prosecuting Attorney Byron McClanahan presented the commission an official appointment order naming Gerry .Alexander and Patrick Sutherland, both attorneys in Olympia, as special prosecuting attorneys for Mason County when needed Gray to see the sheriff and that he (Gray) touched Birdsall on the shoulder and that Birdsall swung the shovel striking him on the neck, arm and shoulder. That was when, Gray said, he hit the other man with his fist. Birdsall, Gray said, dropped the shovel, and began moaning "you broke my jaw" and walked a short distance and fell down. Gray said he picked up the clam shovel and walked back to his vehicle and told his son to go and have Mrs. Gray call the sheriff. Gray stated Birdsall had two buckets, one yellow plastic and one galvanized. He stated one galvanized bucket might be the one he hit Birdsall over the back with, but, denied that the other bucket was one he swung at Birdsall after he hit him in the jaw and which Birdsall's wife testified her husband dented hitting it with the shovel as it was swung at his head. The case started Monday morning and was expected to go to the jury Wednesday afternoon. Members of the jury panel are Merle Cleveland, Lavern Hanson, Alva Lynn, Margaret Keary, Walter Anderson, Elizabeth Rublin, Geraldine Creamer, B.W. Campbell, Emaline Pleinis, Mamie Clark, Mary Murphy and Morrel Oliver. On Honor Roll Two Mason County students are among those on the president's honor list at Olympic College for the fall quarter.
