William Carnes Compre Hearing an City Engineer Howard Godat explained part of the Shelton Planning Area Comprehensive Plan to members of the POP committee at a meeting of the group Monday night. Godat, whose consulting engineering firm from Olympia prepared the sections of the plan on water, sanitary sewer and storm drainage, delt mostly with the water and sanitary sewer sections of the plan. He stated the water department needed an additional well to provide adequate capacity for emergencies for domestic use and fire protection. He also recommended an additional 500,000 gallon storage tank. The plan recommends these be done in the period between 1971 and 1975. In the sanitary sewer program, the most needed work is installation of a new outfall line into Oakland Bay and the improvement of the existing system to cut down on storm water infiltration into the sewer lines whic.h~ presently , ove~rloads the tredttnbnt plant during wet weather. Godat said estimates made by a bonding consultant indicate the sale of $1 million worth of revenue bonds would generate about $4 million over the 20-year period for financing of sewer and water improvements. Part of the additional money, he said, would be anticipated in property owner participation and from federal and state fund grants on some projects. Godat stated the calculations indicate an increase in the basic water rate from $2 to $2.60 and in the sewer rate from $2.50 to $3.50 would be sufficient to pay off the needed bond issue for the improvement work. Property owner participation is anticipated in any sewer or water line extensions, he commented. A hearing on the Shelton Planning Area comprehensive plan is scheduled for 7:30 p.m. March 1 7 in the Evergreen School Auditorium. The hearing was called jointly by the city and county planning L eoramissions since the plan takes "in 'all "of the present city limits and part of the surrounding property in its considerations.

Sheriff's Office patrols observed the cab going through Belfair and went in pursuit on Highway 3. The vehicle was followed to a point between Belfair and Bremerton where the Kitsap County Sheriff's Office had set up a road block. Law enforcement officers from the two counties converged at the road block, and, the vehicle was stopped. In the process of the stop, one Kitsap County Sheriff's car was damaged. After the stop, James Roger Sisco, 20, Port Orchard, was taken into custody to be turned over to the Pierce County authorities for prosecution.

"Mrs. Lincoln" which is to be produced on March 12 and 13 by the Shelton High School Drama Dept. offers a unique experience in the area of audio-visual effects and modern theatrical techniques. Don't be surprised when you walk into the auditorium and find that the characters are already on stage and acting. "Mrs. Lincoln" Hear Grange A. Lars Nelson, Master of the Washington State Grange, will be the speaker at the Shelton Chamber of Commerce membership meeting tonight. The meeting will start with a dinner at 7 p.m. in the Hallmark Inn with the program following at 8 _p.m. The meeting place has been changed this month to the Hallmark from the regular meeting place, Heinie's Broiler.

Chamber members are reminded wives are invited to attend the meeting. runs continuously. There are no curtains, there is no beginning and no end. Mrs. Lincoln, who is portrayed by seniors Debby Shawver and Wendy Erhart, never leaves view of the audience. There will be short intermissions between each of the acts when the house lights will go on, but the actors will never leave the stage. Another enthralling aspect of "Mrs. Lincoln" is the unusual use of a movie sequence before the dialogue of the play begins. This eight minute, 16 millimeter motion picture sequence depicting Civil War scenes, portraits of Lincoln and others was made by the Shelton High Drama students on a Dejur animation process camera by taking 10,800 separate pictures. Junior Scott Miltenberger, technical director, shot the majority of the pictures. Most of these pictures were taken from books dealing with the Civil War period. The movie will be shadowed across the stage on a series of six net screens. The net deals with the life of Mary Lincoln after the assassination of the president. "Mrs. Lincoln" is based on the true story of Mary Lincoln's life in Bellevue Sanitarium in 1875 after her own son, Robert Lincoln signed the commitment papers. It tells the story of a proud woman who is making a desperate attempt to save her dignity while being held in an insane asylum. Mrs. Lincoln finds herself caught between a world of reality and a world of the past when her memories return to haunt her. Sally is the Negro maid who tries to help Mrs. Lincoln. Sally is a likable character and she uses much more tact and skill in handling Mrs. Lincoln than the self acclaimed "doctor", Mr. Patterson. Sally is played by Holly Manke, a junior and Linda Cochran, a sophomore. Holly Manke has played in several of the dramatical productions at Shelton High School. She played the lead role of Rhoda in last years play, screens give the projection a ~IO11~/~1~: multiple or echoed effect. Music will play an important part in creating the mood of the play. Nearly one mile of tape has been recorded for the ~ound track of "Mrs. Lincoln." Lighting also plays a significant role in the play. The Shelton High School Drama Department has recently purchased a new strobe light for use in this production. "Mrs. Lincoln" was written by Thomas Cullinan and it played on Broadway in 1969.
