THE DANCE FLOOR is crowded when the music of a band called LYNX sets the toes to tapping. Left to right are Randy Linder, Ken Lawson, Roger Lawson and Mike Linder. Rep. Julia Butler Hansen (D-Wash.) this week introduced bills providing for safeguards against ocean dumping of dangerous pollutants. The three bills would: - call an international conference, under auspices of the 1972 United Nations Conference on Human Environment, to prohibit dumping and provide the needed framework for review and enforcement. - require that dates be established for all new munitions, and require a review of all chemicals and munitions on hand that would be hazardous when disposed of. - provide the Environmental Protection Agency with final authority for approval of plans to discharge military waste material into international waters. "The troubles over the nerve gas disposals last fall point to a need for more adequate controls," Mrs Hansen said. The bill she is sponsoring would provide for grants from the Federal Communications Commission, which would help establish a special "91 1" telephone code number that could be dialed for police, fire, ambulance, or other emergency aid.

There are at least four young men who have never learned the meaning of the words. A band called LYNX is the culmination of three generations of musical talent in the Linder family, beginning in the youth of a man named Hayes Davis who came to the Skokomish Valley in 1909. He became famous for his performances on the musical saw as well as for his vocal talents and abilities as a pianist. He maintained a home in the Shelton area for 65 years, and although he and his wife now reside in Seattle they are frequent visitors in the Linder home. Greg, Randy, and Mike Linder are the grandsons who inherited his talent. Greg, although assisted by friends, is a predominately self-taught guitarist and it was he who guided the other boys through the intricacies oI the instrument. He is now a fourth y Entertains Chuck and Marie Linder were host and hostess and chaperones on February 6 to more than 70 Shelton area teen-agers who met at the Linders' Skokomish Valley home for a Jam Session. From 7 p.m. to 2 a.m. musicians from several other rock bands 'sat in' with the band called LYNX to keep a steady flow of music for the many dancers. Refreshments and snacks were plentiful. "We wanted to have a nice party for the young people," said the Linders. "We feel that they need more such activities." Janeen Deyette, an enthusiastic guest, spoke for the entire group. "We all think Chuck and Marie are the greatest for giving us such a fabulous evening, and we appreciate the tremendous amount of work involved in the planning of such a big party." Fund Plans for the annual Washington State Heart Association Shelton and Mason County Drive are well underway. Mrs. Herb Welch, Mrs. Gene Caldwell and Mrs. Roger Hoff, Heart to Heart co-chairmen, announce their area leaders have been recruiting captains and block workers needed for the February door-to-door drive Feb. 25-28.

The boys have an older sister, Cherri Savignac, who is a professional model in Seattle. When Randy and Mike were attending junior high school, their first band, "The Reflections" was organized. They played for school events and for private parties. Charles and Marie Linder, parents of the boys, were behind them all the way. Both are musically talented, Chuck Corps Is Given Application Application has been received by the Seattle U.S. Army Corps of Engineers office from Whitacre Engineers, Inc., 2124 South "K" Street, Tacoma, Washington 08405 (Telephone (206) 272-5144), on behalf of Lysle G. Paterson, to do certain work on Hood Canal, below Belfair. The proposed work includes installation of a removable walkway and float to provide protection for swimmers from boat traffic and provide access to small boat during summer months. Interested parties are requested to submit, in writing, any comments or objections that they may have to the proposed work. The decision as to whether a permit will be issued will be based on an evaluation of the impact of the proposed work on the public interest. Factors affecting the public interest include, but are not limited to, navigation, fish and wildlife, water quality, economics, conservation, aesthetics, recreation, water supply, flood damage prevention, ecosystems, and, in general, the needs and welfare of the people. Comments on these factors will be accepted and made part of the record and will be considered in determining whether it would be in the best public interest to grant a permit. Replies to this notice should be mailed to reach the Corps Seattle office not later than March 10 to insure consideration. vocalizing and his wife playing piano and organ. Chuck Linder is a carpenter and Marie is employed at the Washington Corrections Center. Jam sessions abound on the Linder acreage in the Skokomish Valley. During Labor Day weekend a four day family reunion is usually held, with relatives gathering in campers and trailers. On Sunday friends are invited to join them for a jam session and a barbecue. Corn on the cob is served, and the customary piece de resistance is a 40 pound roast of beef with at least five King salmon onthe side. The Linder home resembles a hotel most of the time, with a steady stream of house guests, visitors and kids who stay for dinner. "I never care how long the chow-line is," says Chuck Linder. "It's great to have the kids here." Mrs. Linder agrees wholeheartedly. "They all pitch in and help with the work," she says. "Our kids never have to ask if their friends may stay for a meal. They know they are always welcome." The extensive electronic equipment necessary for the band has been financed by Mr. and Mrs. Linder, and their premises have always been in constant use for rehearsals and for the endless hours of practice that have resulted in the fine, polished musical group now being professionally launched. In April, Roger and Ken Lawson, on drums and bass respectively, joined forces with the Linder boys. Their parents, Verl and Lucille Lawson, also have a background in music and were at one time professional performers. Morally supported to the nth degree, the boys became members of the Olympia Local of the Musicians' Union and are now much in demand for adult as well as for teen-age dances. The two sets of parents, and often a grandparent or two, are always in attendance to applaud the efforts of their offspring, to lend a hand if needed, and most of all to dance to the music of LYNX.
