A bridge would utilize the present loss an d be of great economic benefit to all of Mason County. NOW IS TItE TIME TO DECIDE! A vote FOR Harlslene Bridge Bonds, will 1. Authorize constrction of an ALL CONCRETE BRIDGE, a one-time proposition, with little or no upkeep, financed by general obligation bonds, which will be retired by a 2- mill or less assessment, paid for in 20 ye ars or less and we will have a waluable perna- sent facility. Encourage development of approximately 30 miles of waterfront, of which only about 1/3 is now developed, bringing it onto the tax rolls at higher assessed valuation and eventually offset cost of the bridge. A bridge will permit the building of permanent homes, as people can then commute to work off the Island, which the ferry schedule makes difficult, thus hindering develop- ment of the Island. Permanent homes, with the consequent increase in population, pur- chasing power and consumption of all commodities and in work for tradesmen, will benefit all of Mason County. 4. Let's get something for OUR TAX MONEY, by building a bzidge and utilizing the pre- sent ferry operating loss instead of letting it "go down the drain". A vote AGAINST Hartslene Bridge Bonds, will Necessitate the building of a new ferry in the immediate future, according to Coast Guard advice. This would be financed by an assessment of 11/2% against all Ma- son County Property, WITHOUT REFEREIDUM, at a cost of at least $200,000, with a continued annual operating loss of $20,000 and more as time goes on. The new ferry, in order to provide adequate ferry service and comply with Coast Guard Regulations must be larger, employ more men and th erefore pay more wages, which will increase the annual loss. Hartstene IsIand Ferry is a part of our Mason County road system, financed by all county taxpayers and in spite of daubling the fares a year ago, to "all the traffic will bear", is still a losing proposition, so 20 y ears hence we will end up with nothing for our tax money. / A bridge is inevitable, so let's build it NOW, before costs spiral further upwards. Remember! Get out and vote "YES" on Hartstene Island Bridge Bonds at your school elec- tion March 12. We must have a vote of 40 % of those voting in the last General Election.

March 9, 1913 the couple were married in the home of the bride's father in West Plains, Mo. The Barnetts began their married life near West Plains. Their first two children, Roy Golden and Ruth Ethel, were born there. (Roy passed away at the age of 16 years). In August of the year 1916 the Barnett family moved to Bordeaux, Wash., where Mr. Barnett began a life long work connected with the lumber industry. Here their third child, Wil- ma Lea, was born. When the Bordeaux Lumber Co. ceased operation in 1941 Mr. Barnett moved his family to National, Wash., where they stayed for two years before moving on to Mapleton, Oregon where they remained until his retirement in 1951. Mr. and Mrs. Barnett chose Shelton as the place to spend their "golden years". They have resided at 636 Ellinor street since they moved here about 12 years ago. Th Barnetts anticipate the pleasure of greeting many of the friends they have made during their 50 years of marriage this Sunday between the hours of 2-5 p.m. at the Colonial House. * High School Spotlight * JOHN ANDERSON is a 6'3" tall senior at Irene S.
