Burning Shelton City Attorney B. Franklin Heuston, in an answer to a smt filed against the city by the Olympic Air Pollution Control Authority to halt burning at the city garbage dump cited several reasons why the city contends the regulations should not be enforced. The answer to the suit denies the regulation under which the suit was filed was properly enacted and that it was in full force and effect or that it was valid. The answer also denies the city dump operation is under the jurisdiction of the Olympic Air Pollution Control Authority and denies the burning is unlawful or is in violation of the Pollution Control regulation. The answer also states if the garbage at the dump was allowed to collect and not burned, it would constitute a fire hazard and would cause ground water pollution. The answer filed in the suit also states the operation of the disposal system by methods presently used does not contribute to air contaminents in sufficient quantity and of such a character as to be harmful. The suit was filed by the Pollution Control Authority after it announced regulations which prohibit burning at garbage dumps under its jurisdiction. Operators of dumps were allowed to apply for and in most cases were granted a permit which allowed them to continue burning while seeking other methods of disposal. The city of Shelton did not apply for a permit, and, the city in a letter prepared by Heuston denied the city dump operation came under the jurisdiction of the pollution control authority.

He stated before they left, he and Shoening had searched the area where Selby had been observed to run, but, had found nothing. Sgt. James Sisson of the Sheriff's Office testified he had been with Shoening and Gorman when they first spotted Selby and Miskinis in the alley and that he had observed Selby run behind the garage adjoining the alley. Leading off as a witness for the defense was David Miskinis, "Y~__, an inmate at the Washington Corrections Center. Miskinis said he had been at the Corrections Center about 15 months after being sentenced on a charge of grand larceny. He testified he had called Selby the evening of Dec. 21 and asked him to stay overnight and that he had then gone to Selby's holne, walking part of the way and catching a ride the rest. ? MRS. IRENE CONCA, left, acting chairman of the Mason County Republican Central Committee, and Donald Moos, director of the State Department of Agriculture, talk to a member of the audience who heard Moos speak at the GOP Lincoln Day Dinner last week. OOS pea er inner Speaking on the internal crisis in the U.S. today, Donald W. Moos, director of the State Department of Agriculture, spoke to the Mason County Republican Central Committee's Lincoln Day Dinner last week. Moos opened his talk with a review of Lincoln'slife and involvement in politics. Commenting on the campus is the place ~,(~tefre~y'O~lll~g minds are rebelling, where a new and uncommitted generation, largely born to affluence and frequently raised in boredom sees no honor in war, no justice in poverty and no hope for their solution. Moos said "I come here tonight" firm in the conviction that America needs to establish new priorities. That we need desperately to come to grips not just with the protection of life and property, but with the resurrection of national purpose and the enhancement of human values." At another point he commented "violence is intolerable. Yet in a time of turmoil, violence is no greater sin than ignorance. For violence may temporarily disrupt society, but ignorance will most assuredly destroy it. "'And those who ignore the realities of conflict, those who assign the troubles of a great nation' to the youth, to the black, to the hippies and the yippies and the leftists and the rightists miss a very fundamental point. It is not the radicals and the militants who pose the greatest threat to America. It is the great silent majority - the legions of affluent Americans who sit idly by while the nation fights for its future. "It is about time that the citizens of this country began to take stock of themselves. |t is about time that we stopped yelling 'law and order' and 'victory at any cost' at the top of our lungs, and b,egan to assess our I AT CAPITAL SAVINGS problems with candor and honesty. It is about time we recognize that this democracy can survive violence and protest, but it cannot survive ignorance and war and poverty and, above all, the citizen who says 'protect me but don't involve me' " Moos urged his listeners to become involved in solving the problems of America. Sel VanderWegen acted as master of ceremonies for the program. Entertainment was provided by the Shelton High School swing choir and stage band who each presented several numbers. r i1 Jury Gives Damages A Mason County Superior Court jury, after hearing ahnost eight days of testimony, last week awarded Mr. and Mrs. James Dailey, $1,039.36 and Mr. and Mrs. August Grisel $12,000 in their suit against Walter Goodat, Portland. The suit was the result of injuries Mrs. Dailey and Mrs. Grisel claimed they received when the car Mrs. Dailey was driving and in which Mrs. Grisel was a passenger, ran over an iron pipe which fell from Goodat's truck as the two vehicles met on the highway near where the freeway starts at Cole Road in November, 1968. Two other defendants who had been in the case originally, Frederick Dyson, Seattle, and the State of Washington, were dismissed from it during the trial by Judge tfewitt Henry.

Miskinis said when he spotted the deputies, he gave Selby the packages he had in his jacket pocket and asked him to hide them. The officers were not looking, Miskinis said, when Selby was handed the packages. Miskinis said he did not believe Selby knew what was in the packages. He stated the drugs in the packages were owned by Weatherbie and that Selby had no ownership in them. Miskinis ',stated Selby hid the packages in the brush after they were handed to him. He said after the house was searched, he and Weatherbie were taken into custody, but, Selby was not. Miskinis said he made arrangements for Selby to stay with .his (Miskinis') grandfather, who was 84 years old and blind. Miskinis testified he went back to the scene later with Shoening and they found the package which had been hidden under a bush. It took about 10 or 15 minutes to find it, he said, since while he knew the general area in which it was hidden, he did not know the specific location. After finding the package and leaving it where it had been found, Miskinis said, he and Shoening returned to the court house where a discussion took place between Shoening, Sisson and Weatl~erbie. Miskinis stated he made the call to Selby at the suggestion of Sisson and Weatherbie, and, at the time he made it, it was his understanding the drug charges would be dropped. The charges were later dismissed, he said, but through the efforts of his attorney, not through The tele Miskinis said, in Sheriff's Office, Selby, in substantiated his (Selby's) drugs.
