S. Army Engineers are re-stu- t dying the power-generating fact- ] lilies at the proposed Wynooche Project in Grays Harbor County. The re-study is expected to be' complete by April, according t(/ Congresswoman Hansen. I The Wynooche River Project was! authorized by the Congress in the 1962 Flood Control Act. The autho- rization was made after Mrs. Han- sen had convinced the Congress that the project would benefit considerably the Grays Harbor area as well as all of southwest ern Washington. The U. S. Army Engineers pre- liminary plan calls for a dam on the Wynooche River about 295 feet high about 43 miles from the con- fluence of the Chehalis and Wyn- ooche rivers. It would be a mul- tiple-purpose project combining flood control and power generat- ing features. Total costof the Wynooche pro- ject is estimated at $0 400000. Capacity for storage o$ 276,000 acre-feet of water v,ould be pro- vided. The powerhouse wbutd be built to accomodate tw0 33,000 ki- lowatt generators, but t)fily one unit would be installed initily. s00,00tco tNSU00AN-00 HOME OFFICIh SEATTLI SAFECO makes it easy for agents, lik( ourselves, to give you the finest in: surance coverage possible.

SECOND ST. 426-3357 New Be/fair Business Transports Trailer Homes Throughout The Western 5tales READY T( ROLL  All hooked up and ready the firm's full-time driver, and Eugene McLarty. to roll are these three trailers to be moved by the The business was started about six months ago McLarty Transportation Company of Belfair. and is the first one of its kind in the area, spec- Left to right are Mrs. McLarty, Pete Patterson, ializing in moving trailer homes. .,.: Neither a shortage of working capital nor trouble securing a state license ha been able to slop Mr. and Mrs. Eugene Mc- Larty of Belfair from getting the McLarty Transportation Company rolling, The new firm, which has been in operation about six months, is in a relatively new business, mov- ing trailer homes---either for in- dividuals or from the factory to dealers in several states. McLarty started the business about six months ago after return- ing to Belfair from California. The family had lived at Belfair previ- ously while McLarty worked as a sheet metal worker on construc- tion jobs for a Bremerton firm. Living in a trailer house and following construction work, he had become aware of the need for special equipment and knowledge in moving today's largp trailer homes and decided to go into busi- ness for himself. HE PURCHASED one truck and applied for a state license. There he hit the first snag--his first request was turned down. Determined not to quit, the Mc- Larty's solicited letters from be- tween 40 and 50 prospective custo- mers and circulated petitions among their neighbors in Mason and Kitsap Counties urging state approval of his license. He got his ste.te license and has now applied to the Interstate Com- merce Commission for a federal permit. Meanwhile. he is operating wits his state license and through lease agreements with trailer compan- ies. time. McLarty said. He has been gathering support for his applica- tion to the federal government as he did for the state license. Although there are trailer mov- ing fizas in other areas, McLar- ty's is the first in this area. They haul trailers all over the western United States and to Alaska, Those going to Alaska go to Seat- tle and then by barge the zest of the way. He has hauled from trailer manufadturers in California, Idaho and Oregon to trailer home sale firms and also hauls for indi- viduals. The service includes getting the trailer home ready to move, in- cluding packing, blocking, taking care of licenses and permits and other preparations. It takes special equipment to move today's Lrailer homes. McLarty said. He has expanded and now has two trucks and hires one full-time driver and one part-time as well as driving himself. He plans to get two more tr{mks in the near future to further ex- pand his operations as he gets lined up with new contracts with trailer home mamffacturers. Their trailer home at Belfair serves as headquarters for the operation where Mrs. McLarty, in addition to taking care of the home and the couple's foul- chil- dren, two boys and two girls, acts as bookkeeper and general office helper. "If it has wheels and people live in it." McLarty says, "We will move it." HOOD CANAL SCHOOL NEWS New Equipment Purchased For Junior High; Junior High Gets Accreditation From State NEW JR.

HIGH RE- CEIWES ACCREDIATTION The Hood Canal School District was recently notified that the pro- gram for the seventh eighth and ninth grades meets the minimum requirements of the State Board of Education under provisions of Chapter 175, Laws of 1961. Accre- ditation, therefore, is granted for 1962-63 school year for the pur- pose of allowing the weighted fac- tor of 1.2 for all students enrolled in these grades. "This is the news we have been waiting for," commented Supt. 'Firemen At Gmpeview Seek Cause of Series of False Alarms Past Week "GRAPEVrE\\;V - "The Fable of week,:nd with parents Mr. and the Frustrated tVireman" or "\\;Vho Mrs. El;e Eacrett. By spending the Set Off The Alarm" is tile double fe.'-ttm'e currently showing al the GraDeview Fire Flail to the annoy- ance of all the, volunteers and a great many residenls, too. Our fi]'e department has been plagued with false alarms nearly every other day for the past xveq( send- ing members rnshing to tlteir cat's and a fruitless trip to the fire hall. Om fi)'e district recently instal- led a radio-controlled fire siren to enable us to have a twenty-four hour answering service and also to make it possible for fire calls to be reported either on Shelton or Belfair phones. This syst:em re- quires that fires be reported to Shelton 426-3795 or Belfair 275- 2171 with boti] phones l)eing ans- wered at tile Allyn ttouse. The R. N on duly pushes a button sending a radio signal to our fire hall-automatically setting off the siren. First fireman to arrive at the hall turns off the siren and cMls the Allyn House on a two- way radio for directions before re- star/inK siren and taking fire truck. The problem is thought to arise from the two-way radio be- ing en what is called a "Citizen's Band" frequency which is shared bq many. Any signal on our fre- quency of the right pitch and dura- tion, could set off our alarm. It's all rather complicated, any how, but Radioman Bill Cooper of Shelton. who installed the new siren, together with members of our fire department, are cheering now to find the exact cause of the trouble and expect to make the necessary corrections as soon as possible. In the meantime, lets' please beat' with our volunteers until they have things under con- trol again. Some of our local anglers were evidently chasing false alarms last weekend too. because, although we spotted many boats out, we didn't hear of any fish brought in.
