The State Department of Social Security has advised the County Welfare Department of the approval on January 28 by the Federal Social Security Board of the plan submitted by the De- partment for amending the state's provision for the needy aged. It to modify the original provisions 'to modify the orifinal provisions of the Initiative in a few impor- tant respects. The Initiative it- self made possible Such changes as were necessary to make it con- form to the Federal Act and to insure Federal help in financing the program. In Mason County 256 old age pensioners will benefit by the new schedule, Miss Barber said. The average old age pension check which will be received by local clients will be $31.54 after the new pay schedule becomes ef- fective as compared with the $22.32 average of February checks, Miss Barber explained. This in- :creases the monthly total old age bill in Mason~ County) based on [present clients only) from $5,- 782 to $8,175, or an increase of $2,393. Many New Applications Up to yesterday afternoon 37 requests from new pension ap~ plicants had been received by Miss Barber’s staff. These applicants need not 're-apply as their ad- dresses are on record and they will be notified by mail of defi- i l l nite appointments for interviewsl when their applications are con- sidered further. These applica- tions will be completed as quick- ly as time permits, she said. Because of, the urgency of com- pleting the adjustments for pres- ent clients the welfare staff has not had time to interview or pay home visits to pension recipients so had to use information already recorded in making the adjust- ments. Miss Barber said. Initiative 141 originally propos- cc to exempt from consideration certain income and resources, such as the use or occupancy of prop- erty owned by or given to the applicant, fuel, light and water i bers of his family or by friends, or produced by him for his own use, together with gifts in cash of less than $100 a year and gifts in kind of less than $100 a year, Miss Barber explained. All Resources Accounted The Federal Social Security Board requires that all income and resources, without substan- tial exception, be taken into ac- count in determining eligibility for old age assistance and in ar— ‘riving at the amount of the month- ly grant. The Board therefore .fqnnd subsections (g) and (h) of Section 3 of the Initiative not in conformity with the Federal Soc- ial Security Act and the plan submitted by the Department of Social Security was of necessity based on the requirements of the Federal Act rather than the Initiative, she continued. Those receiving grants of less than $40 will do so because they have income or resources of var- .ious kinds. Such resources may be in cash or in kind, and may in- clude housing which the applicant has provided for himself by prior purchase, or housing or other items given him by members of his family or others. Miss Barber reports that it will inot be necessary for present ap- plicants of old age assistance to reapply. Their grants will be au- tomatically increased by the Coun- Ly Welfare Department for pay- ment as of March 1. After the necessary work in making these increases has been done by the 10- cal staff, work will be started on such new applications as may be received.

LEARNING BY DOING BOY SCOUT THEORY . During Boy Scout Week 1941 the Boy Scouts of America is re- minding Americans that “the paramount need in national de- fense is the strengthening and in- vigorating of democracy in the United States." This the organ- ization proposes to do through its normal programs of activity and education. :Wiaoy Scouts in this country, fol- lowing a non-military policy, are engaged in a program of “learn- ing by doing.” Boys in every city are learning how to do the simple, necessary things of life, from tying'a knot that will hold to cooking a meal in the open. Their program is an active one, stressing‘outdoor life and the abil- Contlnued on Page Three Ellison Family Going Strong On Odd Fellowship A delegation of 25 Odd Fellows of Olympia Lodge No. 1, visited Shelton Lodge No. 62 Wednesday evening with the degree staff, for the purpose of conferring the Ini- tiatory degree on Oren Ellison.

I OFFICIAL COUNTY PAPER 32- Voice Women’s Chorus , Presents Concert Friday Having sampled instrument music as portrayed by the school bands in last Sunday's concert, 10— cal music lovers will now have the opportunity to hear vocal [music as exemplified by local tal- , ient when the Shelton Women's ‘Cllorus stages its first major event of 1941 in a concert this ‘Friday evening in the junior high ) auditorium. ‘ The program gets under way at eight o’clock, with admission to be 27 cents. The chorus is composed of 32 Voices under the direction of Ben Hallgrimson, Shelton school music instructor. Mrs. Homer Dunning, an accomplished pianist, is the accompanist. Additional membership in the chorus is open to those interested until next Tuesday evening, when the next regular meeting of the group is scheduled to be held in the senior high school music room at 7:30 o’clock. Further plans will be laid at that meeting for the Easter cantata and the spring concert which the chorus will stage. ~ The musical program to be pre— sented at Friday’s concert com- prises the following selections: ECONOMY STORE TO BECOME CUT RATEORUO FIRM New Manager Changes Name 01‘ Store To Steele’s Cut Rate Economy Drug } Latest business change in Shel- ton which finds Jack Steele of Tacoma, taking over the Economy Drug Store from Hanson Berg, goes into effect tomorrow when Mr. Berg will leave for Fairbanks, Alaska, to attend to his father’s estate. Mr. Steele announced yesterday that the store will now be known as Steele’s Cut-Rate Economy Drug Store, and that he would follow the merchandising policies iof'Cut—Rate and ‘PayJLess Drug Stores, which are to be found in neighboring towns. Mr. Steele, a. graduate of the College of Pharmacy of the Uni- versity of Washington, has. had a varied experience in the drug bus- iness. He was manager of Brown’s Drug Store in Bremerton for sev- en years and also- went on the road as a salesman for Sharpe & Dohme pharmaceautical house, with headquarters in Salt Lake City. Desirous of establishing himself in business, Mr. Steele, who had visited Shelton in the past as a salesman, bought the Economy Drug Store from Mr. Berg when the latter decided to go to Alas- ka. .- Mr. Steele w'll be assisted in the operations 0 his store by his wife. He expressed the earnest hope that all former customers of the Economy Drug Store would continue to give the new enterprise their patronage. Mr. Berg leaves Shelton after a stay of some 15 years in this city. He is not unacquainted with Alaska, having served in a gov- ernment position some 50 miles from Fairbanks. Time Extended On School Questions Although today was officially set as the deadline for filling out questionnaires on the proposed trade school for Shelton, interest- ed young men who have not yet done so may still obtain the forms at the senior high, Reed Mill of- fices, or The Journal for a few days yet, the investigating com- mittee announced today. Response to the proposal has not been nearly as great as anti- cipated, according to the commit- tee, but due to certain factors which may have affected the re- sponse the questionnaires will be I I Annual savings which amount approximately to the cost of one, month’s operation of the offices have been achieved by the Ma- son County treasurer’s office thru an idea propounded by Deputy Treasurer Nolan Mason; Through a reduction in interest school and current expense war- rants the county will be saved in the neighborhood of $450 to $500 a year, using the value of war- rants issued in 1940 as a basis. By making a survey of other sixth class counties, Deputy Treas~ urer Mason found that only one other in the state was paying more than 3 per cent interest on its registered warrants, regardless .of whether there was bank com- petition or not. .

Next summer Ben “Carpenter, Red Cross field instructor in first aid and aquatic training, will come here probably in the first or sec- ond week of July and put all Red Cross senior life saving certifi- cate holders in this area through a week’s intensive training in aquatic instruction technique, Rep- linger explained. At the close of the training the individuals tak- ing it will be qualified Red Cross aquatic instructors. ‘ All senior life savers or other interested persons who can quali- fy for the instruction are asked to contact Replinger at 329-R or 451. This special instruction pro- bably will be held from the Guy Call summer place on Island Lake, Replinger said, and will be fol- lowed immediately by the annual swimming and life saving class- es.

Plans to campaign for Activian Paul Marshall of the Shelton club for District 1 Governor were also announced last night. CANTATA VOCAL TRIALS MONDAY First trials for male vocal leads in the Easter cantata "Good Fri- day" to be presented here this spring will be held next Monday evening at 8:15 o’clock in the music room at the senior high school, Director Ben Hallgr-imson reminded interested singers again today.

Twice a Week TUESDAY and THURSDAY I [REED GLOOMY T UPON RETURN FROM CAPITAL Representing Northwest At Con- ference 0f Major Industries “'ith Gov‘t Heads, He Finds Little Cheer Frank C. Reed, who was called to Washington as a representative of the Federated Industries of Washington state, was in town today at the Simpson Logging Company offices after a hurried ten-day flying trip. The call was for a conference of the major in- dustries of the nation, particular- ly those concerned in war prepara- tion, and planned for cooperation with the national defense in the huge task of quickly working over the small industries and plants making minor items of domestic consumption into specially tooled and equipped plants for meeting the demand for big war machines. The defense commission was concerned with the delays which held down production of vital war needs in many places, including conflicting federal authority and regulation, labor troubles and bot- tlenecks in supplies which might be avoided; and industry was en- abled to present its side of the picture with the hope that some of these troubles will be ironed out as the need becomes more ap-' parent to the country, and the various branches of government show more cooperation, Mr. Reed commented. Mr.‘ Reed returns with the im- pression that all is not well with thiS‘country‘s situation just now, and that the true story has been kept from the people as regards their own danger from the out— come of war. His impression is that the situation is not realized even in Washington by those who demand “all out” aid for Britain, but have not yet reached the point of demanding “all out” production in industry and labor, regardless of cost or profit; that it would not be surprising if this country faced the grim reality of war within a very few weeks. Ticket Sale For E Red Heads Game Commenced Today Ticket sales commenced today for the exhibition basketball game lfeaturing the All-American Red Heads on February .18 in LirlCOln gym with the Railroad Avenue beautification project to receive half the net proceeds. Appointment of the ticket sales committee was announced today by Mrs. George Cropper, president of the Shelton Garden Club, which is sponsoring the game in con- junction with the city basketball league as a means of adding to the 3600' needed to complete the beautification project. Mrs. Marcus Rodgers and Mrs. H. G. Angle will cover Angleside, Mrs. Winston Scott the Hillcrest area, and Mrs. Logan Mitchell and Mrs. Peter Zopolis the downtown residential and business districts, Mrs. Cropper said. The Red Heads, who have ap- peared twice before in Shelton be- fore large crowds, are America’s premier girls basketball team and as well as being easy on theeyes are players of no small ability for- they win over 50‘per cent of their games playing men’s rules against all men’s teams. They are adept ball, handlers and real sharp- shooters, often to the dismay of their male opponents. The Red Heads will play the Shelton Town Team at 8:30, with a preliminary game at 7 :30 be- tween the McCleary Timber team of the city league and the town team of McCleary, Wash, open- ing the program. Sheltonian New - Kitsap Deputy Appointment of William E. Bur- nett, lately of Shelton and a vet- eran of 16 years in the Spokane police narcotics division, as chief deputy sheriff of Kitsap County was announced yesterday in Brem- erton by Kitsap County Sheriff Fred Vetters, who recently suc- ceeded the late Rush Blankenship. Mr. Burnett had lived in Shel-4 ton for several months up to this week, employed as a pipe fitter and plumber at the Shelton Hard- ware.

Lost Purse, Cash Are Recovered Through Ad A compliment for both the honesty of G. R. Wood and the value of Journal classified ads came from Mrs. Herbert Clinton yesterday when she reported the purse she had lost and advertised for in Tuesday’s Journal had been returned Wednesday by Mr. Wood, who found it. The purse contained more mon— ey than Mrs. Clinton had thought it had when she lost it, she said.
