Kinde rgarten Count Is By School District The Shelton School District needs a count of kindergarten students for the 1971-72 school year early, Supt. Louis Grinnell said this week. The count is needed, he said, in order to determine the number of kindergarten classes which will be necessary for the next school Judge Rules No Criminal Charge B. Franklin Heuston, sitting at judge pro-tern in Mason County District Justice Court Tuesday afternoon, ruled there was no basis for criminal charges against Steven Deissen in connection with tools which both Deissen and Steven Nymann, owner of ttood Canal Yacht Basin, both claim. Nymann testified Deissen was a former employee at the yacht basin, and, that Deissen had some tools of his own when he came to work. During the time Deissen was employed, Nymann said, Deissen transferred his interest in the tools to Nymann tot money which he (Deissen) owed. Deissen was discharged in Sept., 1970 after a disagreement between the two, and, later returned and picked up the tools in question. Deissen was arrested as he left with the tools on a complaint by Nymann. Deissen testified he had signed title to the tools over to Nymann in order to coUect insurance for year. Students must be five years old before Sept. 1, 1971 in order to be enrolled, the superintendent said. He asked all parents who will have youngsters entering kindergarten next year to contact the elementary school which they will be attending either in person or by telephone before April 1 and give the child's name and birth date. Parents who do not know which school service area they are in can contact Ken Gesche, director of elementary education, at Evergreen Elementary School. 426-8281, with the information. The actual registration for kindergarten will be held later in the spring, Grinnell said.

The proposed resolution was brought to the Chamber Director's meeting Wednesday morning by James Barrom, chairman of the committee, and County Agent Harold Van De Riet. Only three members of the board of directors were present at the meeting. A motion to approve the resolution by Jerry Swartos failed to receive a second and was not voted on. Other members of the board attending the meeting were Walt Parsons and Ron Elledge.

They had been asked to prepare a resolution and submit it for consideration at the next board meeting.

HEAR Professor of Theology, Northwest College SUNDAY, MARCH 21 and 28 SHELTON ASSEMBLY OF GOD 1521 Monroe St. Mason Younglund, Pastor iscusses esolu ion board voted to change the time and day of their meetings to 7:15 a.m. on Wednesdays. Van De Riet explained that the Extension Service with which he is connected as county agent here, receives about one third of its financing from the state, one third from the federal government and one third from the county. The state budget for the Extension service was about $7.9 million for this year, and, that a 28 per cent reduction about $2.4 million, had been proposed for the coming year. He stated the total budget cut for Washington State University in the budget being considered by the State Legislature was $8 million of which $5 million was to be cut from the experiment program and the Extension Service. This would make a cut in the state funds for the WSU research program about 20 per cent and for the Extension Service 28 per cent. The resolution proposed by the Agriculture committee of the chamber asked the cuts in the research and Extension Service funds be on the same basis as the rest of the WSU budget, rather than be cut so much more severely as had been proposed. Van De Riet stated one of the areas which would feel the cuts was the 4-H program in the county° There are presently about 350 4-H members in the county. Other work of the Extension Service office, he said, is in the areas of the lake study, solid waste management, and information for Christmas tree growers and farmers. Van De Riet said if the proposed budget cuts are not changed, the lake study program which was being conducted on five lakes in Mason County would probably be dropped. He stated just exactly what effects the budget cuts would have as far as the local office was concerned had not yet been outlined. Another person who backed restoration of the cuts in the WSU budget was A, Lars Nelson, State Grange Master, who spoke to the Chamber membership meeting last Thursday night at the Hallmark Inn. Nelson said there must be research in agriculture and the widespread dissemination of the information learned. He stated the cut in the Extension Service budget would cause irreparable damage to the program and would eliminate about 200 persons from the program. He said the continue its efforts to needed funds budget. Nelson covered a subjects in his talk restrictions in he said, if not would result in produce and higher He supported co operation of the N Hanford, stating provides the safest destructive force availabl~ production of electric He also oppO.' government proposed breaking Department of placing its functions departments in the government. /1 C_ Regular & Hard-to-Hold $1.25 Value.
