Z; ~t~ ~/ ,~i Form A group of wives of inmates of the Washington Corrections Center met to form a self-help organization March 5. The group is being established as part of the Volunteer Program of the Shelton Local Office, Division of Public Assistance. The wife of any inmate in the Corrections Center, living in Mason County is invited to join the group. Goals of the group are to help themselves and each other, to help the new wives in the area obtain housing and employment, to become aware of the various resources in the community, and to pool transportation and baby sitting in emergencies. Experts in the fields of child care, homemaking and money management will be invited to speak to the group later. The members believe there are a number of wives of Correction Center inmates living in the area who are not known to the Organization members of the group and who have not been contacted. These women can call 426-1985 for further information. Any member of the community who would care to volunteer to be of assistance in supplying transportation, child care or any appropriate service should contact Helen Magee at the Public Assistance Office, 426-3363.

Upon the signing the the Point No Point treaty of 1855 Territorial Governor Isaac Stevens presented to the Indians as a token of goodwill many trees, both apple and Bing cherry. The towering and wide-spreading specimen on Mrs. Miller's property, estimated to be 60 feet in height, is the biggest and the best of the few still in existence. Widowed in 1939, Emily Miller raised her children, ranging in age from four to 14 years, by the sale of milk from the 15 cows owned at the time. Just prior to his death her husband had purchased two draft horses. "It was as though he knew he was to leave us," said Mrs. Miller, "and he wanted us to have the horses to help with the work." But a g'ate Was left open by a trespasser and the horses were killed on the highway. Emily Miller saved the life of her grand-daughter when the family home burned in 1963. Most of her possessions lost and the structure damaged beyond repair, a mobile home was established on her property and there she now lives with a grandson and a grand-daughter. They have two little dogs as pets and in her yard Mrs. Miller has cleverly contrived from an old car body a small but flourishing green-house wherein bloom fuschias and geraniums. In the summer she grows a garden, and all year round she makes baskets, utilizing cedar bark strips and colorfully dyed grasses. According to Mrs. Miller she had, 'at last count', 27 grandchildren and 15 great-grandchildren. She has six living children. Emily does not know exactly what the Indians gave to Governor Stevens in exchange for the trees. "I guess it was quite a lot," she said.

Saturday the Hood Canal Hi Riggers 4-H Club traveled to Shelton accompanied by their leader Mrs. Harold Drake and myself. In the morning Delores took several of the youngsters into a room where they were to give cooking demonstrations. One little boy, my son David, went blank but decided to mudd!e through anyway. As it was told to me later, the demonstration was a total disaster. Since some of the group were au scheduled for both morning and afternoon demonstrations, we took them to a local cafe for lunch. While waiting for our orders to come this same little boy informed us he was ill. He was rushed to the car and his lunch was put in a doggie bag and sent to the car. After some air he was feeling much better so he decided he could go on to the forestry demonstrations with the others in the group. I grabbed the ones that were finished and ran. The Golden Thimble and Busy Baker 4-H clubs also went into the demonstrations on Saturday. A new member in the Golden Thimble club, worked out a demonstration with her leaders less than two weeks before the contest. Then she lost it. A new one was worked out on Thursday and this little girl managed to receive a red ribbon on Saturday. Just goes to show what these kids can do. The leaders of all three clubs said they were pleased with the showing made by their groups.
