I VVhathakes Shelton Hospital Tops In Its Class I At the top are grouped most of the nurses who see that Shelton hospital patients are given the best care possible and who have helped build for Shelton hos- pital a reputation as being the finest small town institution of its type in the state and one of the finest in the entire country. In the front row, left to right, are Antoncttc Baima, Louise Beers, Erma Roscnow, Lucille McDaniel, and Marion Magnochic; middle row, Larry Safly, orderly, Mary Carney, Jean Spurlock, Louise Pratt, Margaret Culwell, and Frank Harrier, technician; back row, Ann Harmon, Rosie Post, Dor- othy LaBarr, Emalyn Stewart, Dorcas Myers, and Superintendent chla Dccny. . The center panel shows Frank Harrier adjusting the portable X—ray machine recently installed at Shel— ton hospital on Patient Dan McCustin. The new ma- chine is so highly adjustable that it can take X-rays of any part of a patient in whatever position the patient may be without moving the patient. The machine can even be put beneath bed to take pic- tures and is light enough to be taken along on house calls if needed. In the lower scene MTSZ Emalyn Stewart, veteran Of the Shelton hospital "nuT-S‘mgfitaff, is demonstrating the recently acquired diathefmic machine (left) which imparts electrical short wave-3 for heat applications to patients, the cold quartz ray machine (center) which produces alpine sun ray-9: and the new infra-red my machine (right), both of the latter machines being used to treat bruises; sorene-SS, Sinus, eta, through heat applications and health giving rays. The patient again is Dan Mcmislin. HOSPITAL T n E A T s 3’7 PATIENTS PER DAY Some interesting statistics con— cerning the operation of Shelton General Hospital during 1940 were released today by the board of trustees after being compiled by Secretary—Treasurer Reg Sykes all of which bear out the pretty well knOWn fact that the hospital has been one of the fastest grow- ing “businesses” in the commun- ity in the last couple of years. hospital served an average of 37 previous year.

FUND gill; FRlDAY Lincoln P.-T. A. Out To Bolster Fund W'hich Provides Free Lunches To Kids Save a. spare coin or two this Friday, neighbors, and buy a tag to help the Lincoln grade school lhot lunch fund. } Ladies of the Lincoln P.-T. A. lure going to conduct a tag sale IFriday to help fatten the fund ,which provides some 10,000 hot llllnches during the course of an ,average school term for the Lin- lcoln grade school pupils who can- 1 inot go home for lunch nor have [the wherewithal to buy their own ‘noon meals. So far this year 8,- 539 lunches have been served, of which 3850 were free. . The Lincoln P.-T. A. has made {the hot lunch fund its major ac— §tivity in a fund raising way, and ’is the largest single donor to the fund, although the P.T.A. con- tributes only a fourth or a fifth, of the total needed to conduct the hot lunch program. A half doz- ‘en other regular donors plus a [scattering of voluntary contribu— tions combine to complete the. fund picture, but the P.—T. A. pledges itself to at least $10 a month throughout the school year plus whatever else it can add to that. Friday’s tag sale is to be one of the mediums the P.—T.A. em— ploys to hold up its pledge to the fund, so tuck away a spare coin or two for a tag so some young- ster won't go without a nourish- ing hot lunch. 5 The lunches served are of such nourishing dishes as potatoes and l gravy, various kinds of soups, cooked vegetables, apple sauce and . cookies, etc., which are provided at 4 or 5 cents to those able tol pay, free to those unable to do so. ‘ To conduct such a program re— quires between $400 and $500 each | l school year, reports Miss Blanche Bertrand, Lincoln principal, plus donations of food stuffs which come the program's way during the course of a year. Frequent— ly the fund has a deficit at the end of the year and then Miss Bertrand has to go out and get more money from wherever she can. or else make it up the fol- ioWing fall. Friday's tag sale as been ar- ranged by a committee composed of Mrs. H. G. Angle, chairman, Mrs. Florence Weeks, Mrs. John Eliason, and Mayor William Stev- enson. Most of the members of the Lincoln P.-T. A. will take part in the actual sale of tags, which will bear no special price “purchaser” can afford at the moment he is contacted by a tag salesman. 'Pirates Play At Poulsbo Friday In A,A.U. Battlei l Poulsbo's Sons of Norway Will be first opponents blocking the path of the Pantorium Pirates in the Shelton team's quest for a berth in the state A.A.U. tourna- ment, it was learned this morn- mg.

The winner then meets the Olympic Peninsula champ, Neah Bay and Port Town— send being in that playoff, on the Peninsula winner’s floor, then that victor meets the King County ti— tlist in this end of the district in the final elimination for the district’s tournament berth. In order to rest the Pirate ‘line— up as much as possible a couple of changes in the city league bas- ketball schedule for tonight’s games have been made. McCleary Timber will take Mc- Conkey Pharmacy’s place in the first game against 4-E Dairy, In case the Pirates Win at Poulsbo and the playoff with the Peninsula champ is arranged for Sunday, then Saturday night’s game between Kimbel and Mc- Conkey will be delayed until next week.

UNION HAS FINAL PROOF OF EARLY SPRING IN GARDENS Union, February 19~——Of course- everything is early this spring and here and there someone pops up with a» private brag about his early blooming daffodil or violets or something else. However there are citizens of Union. who proclaim that they of all others are in the most favored spot and in proof cite the garden of Mrs. Adela Kent, where an Acacia tree spreads and thrives and an orange tree, a grapefruit, a lemon and an Avacado flourish. The lemon tree has on it at this time 17 lemons, small but of com- mercial (490) size, several of which are turning yellow. Frank Caella, also of Union, has an Acacia tree 15 feet tall which is now coming into bloom. It is suggested that the hillside back of Union protects against sudden changes in freezing and thawing and so makes possible the cuture of these semi-tropical trees. Work On “Little House” Held Up; Electrician Need A plea was sent out this week from members of the Girl Scout Council for the services of a 1i— censed electrician to aid with the “Little House" project which they are working on at Kneeland Park. So far, the response for dona- tions and materials has been very gratifying, but at the present time work is almost at a stand- still until the wiring is put in thereby providing the necessary lighting which will enable other volunteer workmen to aid during the evening. The help or a car- penter is also being requested. When completed the “Little House” will be the gathering place for the various Girl Scout troops, and is very much needed as the Girl Scout mOVement in Shelton is growing rapidly. Activians Name Gene Hanson As Dance Chairman Gene Hanson, immediate past president, was appointed chair- man of the Active Club’s annual spring frolic by President George Dunning last night at the club's weekly meeting. The dance will be held the Sat- urday following Easter, according to present plans, with the pro- ceeds to be put into the fund for delegates expenses to the Active International convention at Port- land next summer. The eight can- didates for delegates were named as a committee to raise the con- vention delegates fund, then will select from their own numbers the three official representatives of the club. Two events will divide the club membership next Wednesday when one contingent drives off to Long- view for an inter-club meeting and‘ the “stay-at-homes" hold a regular meeting here. The Long- view trip will be in the way of a kickoff for the Shelton club’s campaign to elect Paul Marshall as District 1 governor. School Candidates Get No Opposition No opposition appeared to con- test the candidacies of Mrs. George Drake, A. S. Viger arid L. A. Walton for re-election to the posi- tions on the school board of the Shelton district, according to Clerk Harry Carlon this afternoon. The deadline for filing was yes- terday. The annual school elec— tions will be held March 1. Aviation Club In Process of Being Organized Here Plans for Shelton's first air- plane club are rapidly being com- pleted by Joe Miller, Ed. Jeffery, Shelton pilot, disclosed today. Airplane clubs such as the one being formed here have been en- joying increased popularity thru- out the United States. In it, it is explained, a group of fifteen or twenty aviation enthusiasts pool their resources and buy a new plane. The initial payment being from thirty-fiVe to fifty dollars each, depending on the type of ship purchased. The monthly dues amounts to approximately six dollars and avails the club members a new ship for training and flying. A charge of two dollars per hour is made to cover gasoline, insurance, and depreciation. Bremerton has a flying club with fourteen members which is reputed to be the strongest club financially in the state. Tacoma also has a club with twenty mem— bers. Many other cities have two or more clubs each. The advantages in belonging to a club of this kind, it was point- ed out, are that low cost flying' is made available, while expenses remain at a minimum. During the week the ship can be used for extensive trips while weekends it is available for half-hour flights by club members. Interests in the plane or club are transferable, Mr. Jeffery said. War Relief Yarn Ready For Sewers; A call for sewers to work on the Red Cross war relief sewing project was sounded today by Mrs. Herbert Miller, chairman, following the arrival of a consid- erable quantity of yarn for knit- ting sweaters, mufflers and socks. She urged all women interested in helping in the Red Cross pro- ject to clean up the current sup— ply of materials before the call of spring gardening gets too urg- ent. Yam may be secured by call~ ing at Memorial Hall for it or by contacting Mrs. Miller. Arcadia Resident Passes Yesterday Jacob F. Reed, 79, resident of Arcadia Road for the past five years, died at Shelton hospital yesterday after a short illness. He was a retired carpenter and sawmill worker.

Commander Outlines Le- gion’s Place In National Defense Program Dur— 1 ing Official Visit As an agency in America's na- tional defense program the Ameri- can Legion’s place is to be one of a. cooperator with other existing organizations such as the Red Cross, the Army. the Navy, the F.B.I. and others which will play key roles if and when the United States becomes involved actively in war, Department Commander Rudy Nichols of Monroe explain- ed to members of the Olympia and Shelton American Legion posts in his official visit here Tuesday evening. Memorial Hall was vcll filled for the department commander‘s visit with members of Fred B. Wivell post of Shelton and Alfred William Leach post of Olympia turning out in large numbers for the occasion, with auxiliary mem- bers of the Shelton post also sit- ting in to hear Commander Nich- ol‘s message. The Legion’s program national- ly was mapped at a recent gather- ing of the 48 department com- manders with national Legion of- ficers in Indianapolis, Commander Nichols explained. . National Registration At that meeting the Legion's role of cooperator was determin— ed, he said. The first step in the program will be national regis- tration of all World War veterans with the object of securing in- formation on the physical con- dition of ex-servieemen, their pres- cnt occupations, and where they would best fit into national de- fense work. Just how this registration is to be handled by the local post has not yet been announced. Many posts throughout the nation are registering on Washington's Birth- day. Commander Nichols said. The American Legion's cooperv ation in national defense would also extend to assist civilians in air raid work such as fighting fires, assisting in blackouts, and in any other need arising from home defense emergencies. Cooperation in the establish- mcnt of a national network of amateur radio station operators would be extremely valuable in disseminating information and messages during emergencies is another program which the American Legion is working out, Commander Nichols stated. Observers In England He pointed out that at the present time the Legion has four lmen in England observing how .home defense plans are being worked out and with what suc- cess so that first hand knowledge of defense tactics which have ac- ‘tually been tried under war condi- 'tions will be available to America if the need should arise. A national legislative program is also being pushed by the American Legion, Commander Nichols continued, which embodies planks covering national defense preparedness from a military standpoint, securing government iprotection for World War widows and orphans, preference to war veterans in civil service positions with refreshing courses to be given to prepare them for work under civil service, and a three- point Americanism program which includes further restriction of im- migration, continuance of the Dies Committee,-and increase in the personnel of the F.B.I. Commander Nichols was accom- panied on his official visit to the two posts by Fourth District Com- Imander William Bierer of Sum- lner. Commander John Eliason of Fred B. Wivell post turned the meeting over to Commander John IS. Lynch, Jr., of the Olympia post, who presided. Refreshments were served by the ladies auxiliary of Fred B. Wivell post to close the program. Preceding the meeting Com- manders Nichols and Bierer were guests at the Shelton Hotel at a 6:30 no-host dinner attended by Legionnaires of both the posts. CEMETERY ASS’N , MEETS TUESDAY Notice of the annual meeting of the Shelton Cemetery Association next Tuesday evening at the courthouse, starting at 7:30 o'- clock, was announced today by W. A. Witsiers, president, and Mrs. Edith F. Mathewson, secre- tary. Election of officers and other business matters will be attend- ed to. Accident Here Today Nels Christensen, boomman em- ployed by the Simpson Logging company, suffered head injuries in a fall at the Simpson booming grounds this afternoon.
