[fine performance of the industry The in keeping the domestic market supplied and handling a portion of the export business has about wiped out that fallacy.” Continuous Research He pointed out that American industry is spending $30,000 daily on research and that the pulp and paper industry was spending a generous portion of this amount. “It isn’t so long ago that indus- trial chemists found new uses for the fibres of Olympic peninsula trees and beckoned to the humble western hemlock to pull on its overalls and go to work; and it is reasonable to expect that new products and new jobs will be evolved in laboratory test tubes," he said. Good management of forest re- sources through sustained yield. fire protection and replanting; maintaining of plants at a high state of efficiency; expansion-of sales efforts and a determination to maintain a high standard of quality for “tailor-made products were cited as part of the indus‘ try's contribution towards 61(1- couragement for the future, said the speaker.

Melford Decker, 29, former Shel- ton high school athlete, suffered a brain concussion when a car driven by Frank H. Eggers, 50, construction worker employed on the Shelton gymnasium project, was struck head-on by one driven by W. B. Haight, of Spokane, Fort Lewis construction worker. Er- nest E. Murray, 55, of Spokane, also a Fort Lewis construction worker, died in a Tacoma hospi- tal from injuries suffered in the wreck. Eggers and Haight, the two driv- ers, were not seriously injured. The two Shelton men were taken to a Seattle hospital for treat- ment, the two Spokane men to a Tacoma hospital. Haight later was charged with reckless driving and admitted hav- ing had “three or four beers” shortly before the accident, ac— cording to Seattle newspaper ac- counts. Haight said his car got out of control when the left wheels went onto the gravel strip between the double-lane highway, careening over into the north- bound lane and crashing headon into Eggers machine. Both cars were practically demolished. Locally, traffic affairs Were quiet despite a beautiful weekend whiCh attracted hundreds of mo- orists to the highways and to Hood Canal. Melvin Rutherford, 25, Potlatch Route, reported that an unnamed driver on the wrong side of the road sideswiped his car at Hoods- port Sunday, inflicting damage to both machines. A. L.

She called for the Nuns, but no answer. Then she came back to look at her “Log- Book" to see how many were in, and found four were there back she went, and on the way another H. E. (High Explosive) fell and blew up more houses. Four poor Nuns lost their lives and many people were hurt. Up till yesterday (ED.

Featuring the ' entertainment program was a large reel of col— ored motion pictures showing the trip to the Grant Teton mountain country made by the Mountaineers in the summer of 1939. Bob Pol- lock, one of the members of the trip, described the high spots of the junket as the pictures flash- ed on the screen. Mrs. Laura K. Plumb, Shelton librarian, was an- other Sheltonian who made the trip. Some excellent scenes of the beautiful Teton range and the Jackson Hole country were en- joyed from the films with some outstanding scenes of mountain climbing technique. Skits put on by the three Shel— ton troops added humor to the program while short talks were given by Dr. Eugene Browning, Tumwater Council commissioner and winner of the Silver Beaver award for outstanding service to Scouting in 1940 in the Council, by M. A. Clothier, and Dick Ed- dy, active Scouters, and Earl Sheldon, newest Scoutmaster in the district. District Chairman Doane Bro- die acted as toastmaster of the program.

AUTiloRleP missioners; Kamilche Point W'ork Also Given Approval Repairs on the Skokomish River bridge which spans the river on terday (subject to approval of the state highway department) which will cost an estimated $8000, ac- cording to a resolution adopted by the board at its weekly meeting. Immediate work to keep the the extent of the estimate $8,- 250 {feet of timber approaches and 200 feet of timber decking on the steel span, plus other incidental repairs, the resolution declared. The money would be taken from the county road fund, since the bridge is situated on a county road. Another road improvoment pro~ ject was authorized by the board (it, too, subject to state highway 'department approval) for grading. Agrubbing, clearing, surfacing the Kamilche Point road under a WPA project, the spon-i sors share in the work to cost an estimated $1000, according to the resolution adopted by the board. Three contracts to furnish road district machinery were awarded by the ,board yesterday. Huerby Motors of Shelton was awarded contract to furnish a 1941 sedan for the District 2 commissioner on a bid of $619 net, which was almost an even $100 under the bid of Mell Chevrolet, at $718, and S. L. Pearson at $719. The bid of the Western Trac-l tor and Equipment Company of Portland at $4,898 was accepted for furnishing a diesel tractor' equipped with loader and bull- dozer attachments. It was the lone bid submitted. The bid of the Howard—Cooper lcorporation at $4100 to furnish la diesel motor grader was ac- ,cepted, being the low bid of three submitted.

The plantings were all made between February 8 and 14, he said. The rainbow plantings were in the following amounts: Mason PROPERTY OWNERS CRACK BALI. HARD 0N TAX PAYMENTS First Day’s Payments On This Year’s Taxes 15 Times Last Year’s Sum It Would be stretching things a little to say taxpayers are bat- tering down the door of Treasur— er Omer Dion’s office to pay their 1941 taxes, but by comparison with last year’s early payments the least that can be said is that this year is off to a strong run- ning start. Setting the payments made the first day of tax collections last \year side—by—side with this year’s first day “take” leaves 1940 mired at the post, for the respective to- tal payments as of February 15 on the two years was $174.71 and $2,826.97, Deputy Treasurer No— lan Mason reported yesterday, or more than 15 times as great. This includes both current and delin- quent real and personal taxes. February 15 is the first day the treasurer can- accept tax pay- ments, yet Mason County prop- erty owners have been asking the treasurer’s office for their tax statements for the past two weeks, Treasurer Dion reported yester- On the evening of Friday, Feb— ruary 28, the Lower Skokomishl school is offering as an hour and a half of entertainment the play “Snow White," an adaptation of the same fairy tale which served Walt Disney as inspiration for his most famous movie success. , This version was written by Mrs. Ruth Hawk, now teaching at the Lower Skokomish school, years before the screen gave us the Disney play, and was given by the pupils of the Allyn school where she then taught. The music will be furnished by the Primary Rhythm Band and the harmonica group of the four upper grades. Tickets for adults are on sale at 25c, for children at 100. The proceeds will be used to secure library books and wall pictures for the new school building of which District No. 2 is so right- fully proud. The performance will begin promptly at eight o’clock, but the building will be open by 7:30 o'clock. l BABY DAUGHTER Mr. and Mrs. Harold Tveit of Potlatch Route are the parents of a baby daughter born today at the Shelton General Hospital. Red Heads Play ' Tonite 'in Local Hoop Feature Shelton hoop fans will be see— ing red tonight, but they won’t be mad about it, because they will be viewing the famous All- American Redheads, one of the nations leading feminine casa- ba squads and by all Odds the most decorative team to grace the local floor this year. In addition to being Well enfi tertained, patrons of tonights encounter can feel they are help- ing to beautify their city as half the proceeds will be given to ” the Garden Club for their Rail- road Avenue project. Twice before the Redheads and the local town team have tangled, and the result is one victory apiece so tonight’s tus- sle is the rubber game. .The Redheads will take the floor at Lincoln gym at 8:30 Tuesday evening after a prelim- inary game starting at 7:30 be- tween the McCIeary Timber team of the city basketball lea- gue and the town team of Mc- G‘eary has been played.

They’re fairly “itching” to pay their taxes, it seems, which indicates some of the county's financial woes may be eased a bit during 1941, especially if dee linquent taxes are cleaned up in the same proportion that cur- rent taxes are. Yesterday, the second day of collections for 1941 taxes, found the treasurer’s office beseiged again with over 100 tax receipts being written by the treasurer’s staff, representing payment, of $1,756.73 in current and delinquent real and personal taxes. Second day payment last year totalled $1,- 823.81. Dr. Glenn W. Landers, Shelton optometrist, added another No. 1 laurel to his brow by being the first Mason County resident to pay his 1941 personal taxes, while Ralph Potts of Shelton carried off No. 1 honors for paying 1941 real estate taxes. All current taxes paid before March 15 are reduced by a three per cent rebate offered by the county for such early remittance, Treasurer Dion reminded the thrifty who would take advan- tage of every chance to make a saving.

These were all raised at the Ab- erdeen hatchery, which is to set aside 40 per cent of its hatch this year for Mason county wa- ters under the new system of fish planting which is being made ac- cording to suitable water and popularity with fishermen. Additional fish for Lost Lake will be released later and other lakes will also be Hughey said. Last week‘s plantings bring the 1941 fish release in local waters by the state game department up to nearly 800,000 fish already this year, with some seventeen lakes receiving portions of the plant, some of them never before stock- ed. Approximately 40 county lakes are to be stocked under the sys- tematic schedule worked out by Hughey. CAUTION WARNED IN EXPANSION OF DAIRY PROGRAMS Dairying ln Favorable Position Now But Export Market May Play Vital Part forthcoming, At the dairy meeting held yes- terday at the Shelton Valley Grange hall, dairymen were ad- vised by A. J. Cagle, Extension Economist, to consider very care- fully any expansion in their en— terprise. At present, due to the rearmament program, dairying is in a favorable position. Export products, however, are in a very unfavorable position. This means that unless the government, thru the A.A.A. program, can continue to keep a minimum price on wheat, wheat farmers will start producing dairy products, poultry or beef. “Although we do‘ ‘not in general realize the effect of ex- port commodities on home con- sumed products, they are a guide for local prices,” he commented. Dr. Otto Hill discussed the need for better quality and more home grown feeds. He pointed out how some farmers are using grass sil- age to replace. grain and still maintain the same production. County Agent Clinton Oker- manure in production of more and better pasture and hay. Samples of sod from fertilized and unfer- tilized pastures were shovim. Ap- plication of liquid manure makes pastures available two to three weeks earlier in .the spring. Also it makes possible in many cases an early removed sliage crop on the same piece of land. Because of limited acreage the necessity of more intensive farm- ing methods is absolute] tial, he said. y essen TWO NEW HOMES GOING UP HERE Building permits for two new homes were issued by City Audi- tor Gordon Hendry this Week, one to Howard Plumb for the con- struction of a $3000 residence at Eighth and Cedar streets, the other to Ralph Godden for con- struction of a new $2000 residence at McKinley and Stephens streets. CHIMNEY FIRE City volunteer firemen w e r e called to the home of Ed Elliott, 604 Franklin, yesterday to douse a chimney fire. No damage was done to the residence. W FERRY SKIPPER, PASSENGER COLLABORATE TO DOUSE FIRE By Della Goetsch Harstine Island, Feb. 17. -—- The house-boat in which the C. E. Harrimans make their home, got all “het up” Thursday noon and put on a spectacular performance that might have resulted in ser- ious damage to itself and the ,family’s personal property if the head of the house, who is also skipper of the more or less fa- mous Harstine ferry, had not realized what was going on and taken prompt steps to stop it. The ferry had just moved out of its island slip when the skip- per noticed an unusual amount of smoke blowing and circling around the house-boat. After watching a few moments, he was convinced that the fire which he had left in the livingroom heater had got out of control and was hungrily threatening to devour the house and its contents. Quickly turning the ferry 'back into its slip, he said to the only passenger he happened to have aboard, the rural mail carrier, Horace Crary, “My house is on fire!” Mr. Crary got out of his car immediately and waited at the tip of the ferry‘s apron to be ready to step ashore as soon as he could do so without swimming, and hurried" to the burning build- ing ahead of the owner, who was obliged to shut off the engine and make the ferry fast before he could safely leave it. A ladder was quickly placed and, armed with the big fire ex— tinguisher which he had thought- fully brought from the engine room of the ferry, the skipper went up onto the roof and put out the blaze which by this time had eaten a big hole through the shingles and was hurrying down toward the tar paper covering of the lean-to- kitchen. If the fer- ry had been a couple of minutes run farther out when the fire was discovered, the tar paper would have been reached by the blaze and probably the building and its contents would have been a complete loss. A A Other members of the family were all absent from the home at the time. Mr. Harriman is unable to ac- count for the fire, as everything in and around the heater was the same as usual, when he left to make the 12 o'clock trip. Maybe he had been hurrying around pre- paring his lunch, eating it and getting out to start the ferry on its schedule time, friction thus caused started the combustion. l l plantings for other Mason County strom discussed the use of liquid' and thel EFOUR MAJOR l PROJECTS ON A l l g C. C. AGENDA l lParklng, Fish Hatchery, Highwav ] Relocation, Support For ‘ Webb Campaigns Out- A , lined Thursday A Four major objectives for ac- l complishment in the immediate fu- lture were outlined for the Shel— lton Chamber of Commerce at the ‘February meeting last Thursday evening. They are: 1. Active support of Tom Webb of Potlatch Route for the pres- ent vacant post in the state game commission from the Olympic l Peninsula area; . 2. Assistance in every possible way in securing a suitable site, preferably the Eells springs loca- tion in Skokomish Valley, for a fish hatchery which the state game commission is going to con- struct somewhere on the Olympic Peninsula this year; 3. Petitioning of the city coun- cil to establish more parking area. in the downtown business district ‘ through the removal of the park- ing strips and curbing surround- ing the postoffice and also from in front'of Memorial Hall; 4. Aiding and abetting the State ' Highway Department in any way possible in hastening the re—loca- tion of the Olympic highway be- tween Shelton and Olympia. ' Personal Followup Upon motion by Walter M. El- liott, the Chamber agreed to draft a suitable resolution to be follow- ed by a committee to wait upon Gov. Arthur B. Langlie in behalf of the appointment of Webb to the game commission. Webb also has the backing of the Mason County A Republican Central Committee and the Hood Canal Sportsmen Association. The Chamber’s game and fish committee was given power to act in efforts to secure a loca- tion for the proposed fish hat— chery even to taking an option on a suitable site, with the Eells springs property the first choice. The matter was brought up by A. W. Robinson of Lake Cushman with Mr. Elliott making the mo- tion for action. , , County Cbmmissioner Robert “ Trenchmann suggested the action on the Olympic highway re-loca- tion and Mr. Elliott made the mo- tion for the parking project ac- tion. March Date Altered The March meeting of the Chamber was advanced a week so that the rapidly becoming fam~ ous exhibit of tourist advertising literature prepared by William O. Thorniley, advertising manager of the Black Ball Ferry Lines and president of the Olympic Hotel and Resort Owners Ass‘n., could be displayed to the chamber. Continued on Page Three Book Review For Kiwanians Today Found _Startling The Kiwanis Club listened to an interesting and somewhat star- tling review of a book, “Day of Our Years," written by a roving correspondent who was in the WorldWar and had spent the in- tervening years at most of the big events which had happened in Europe since. Many of the se- crets and intrigues b hind the scenes between the 0d world leaders, the causes of revolution which brought the proletariat to power in Russia, Germany, Italy, and the deals betWeen them, were made plain as pointing to current events and the warning to this country; which was that the So- v1ets were scheming to take over the war wasted countries one by one, and that while Hitler must be kept out of England the best hope for the future lay in his suprem- acy among his own people as a. bulwark against Bolshevism ov- erruning all Europe. A reading of the book was urged for its in- formation of past as well as pres- ent day moves in the war game. Roy McConkey, Ivan Neuen- sohwander, Percy Funk and A. A. Bapst were introduced as new Ki- wanianS, and President Homer Taylor announced a new commit- tee for a campaign on cit‘z ’ to lead in the community.1 ensmp Legionnaires To Gather Tonight Shelton and Olympia American Legionnaires will sit in jointly this evening to hear Department Commander Rudy Nichols of Mon- roe deliver his message on his official visit to the Fred B. Wivell and Alfred William Leach posts in Memorial Hall. Commander Nichols will give his address during the business meeting which starts at eight o’clock, but prior to that he will be guest at a no-host dinner for Legionnaires at 6:30 in Shelton Hotel. Members of the Fred B. Wivell post auxiliary will be invited to sit in on the department com- mander's message, after which the ladies will serve refreshments to the gathering, which is expect- ed to attract a crowd of well over 100 members of the two posts.‘
