Pae 16 SHELTON 3ASON COUNTY 30URRTAI -- Published in "Chrstmastown, U.S.A.", Shelton, Washington Thursday, Ms Union Fire District Offidals D00king Over Hew Fire Trucks For Dist00'ii:00 ByEthel Dalby UNION.--%Vith the 10 Mill Levy passed by a large majority vote, and according to Secretary Lloyd A. Cook. of Hood Canal Improve- ment Club--a 99-25 vote. Union's Volunteer Fire Dept. and members of the local Improvement Club, are jubilant, as well as grateful to those supporting the measure. With a new fire t-ack listed as an imperative need--the ball was started rolling, and a big step taken along that line. when con- tributions were first suggested a few months ago. Morro letters have been mailed to local taxpay- ers, and property owners, and which brought forth immediate re- sponse, as well as a few nice con- tributions. Later when the matter could go no further, it was seen that other means must be under- taken in order to raise the amount of money necessary, to buy a fire truck, and also establish Union as Fire District No. 8. Hence the 10-Mill Levy was suggested as a step alo,n gthe right way, and which with the additional 4 Mills z. makes it a 14-mill levy. ACCORDINGLY THREE board members of the local Fire Com- missioners Chairman Harry Coles, Tom Turner and Ted Bailey made a trip. to Seattle last riday evening, going directly to the L. M. Curtis factory, where they were shown the several types of chassis of fire trucks best suited to their needs, by Don Healy of that firm. It is estimated the cost of the type of fire tmmk is$17,000-$18,- 000. The local men had already loked at Belfairs truck, and also that of the North Shore Dept., some time previously. Meanwhile the automatic tele- phone warning system ,and which Dick Bueehel explained in a few words this morning is already or- dered, and will be installed upon its arrival. It is a type of mechanism de- veloped about three years ago. The names and telephone numbers of eight members of the local fire dept. are listed, and when the fire alarm system turned on to call these numbers, the automatic dial picks up and also relays the same to the eight lines or numbers, a waaing system also alerts the other phone users and who are re- requested to hang up immediately upon hearing the signal on their line. Later a local siren or other warning contrivance will be put into effect--audible to local pe- destrians and as traffic warning along Navy Yard Highway, it is said Chief coffee can band collector Mr. Karl CHerry--civic leader, and sponsor of s new automatic coffee make for what appears to be his own "favorite gang"---is a guest writer who has offered his con- tribution to Union News, on a timely matter as followh: "All of the Volunteer Firemen of Union want you to know that everything is looking brighter around the ire Hall since the ma- jority of you kind voters approved the special 10-mill levy towards the purchase of a new fire truck. Although the money will not be available in]mediately, a careful and detailed invstigation is being made so as to get the most suit- able fire truck for our needs in this district.. In the meantime 18 vohmteer firemen have not missed a single class for fire fighters of the school being belts at Belfair event Monday night. We are also now the proud possessors of a Used coffee maker which will take care Of our needs at our meetings, until e obtain the new one we hope to procure.--J(arl O'Berry Fire Dept. Member.

IRA MORSE was returned to his home last Thursday from Shel- ton General Hospital, where he had been confined since Feb. 13. He suffered a broken leg while at work in the woods at Camp Govey.

Tom Turner was among the woods-workers who had to return home last Friday when four inches of snow fell at Camp Covey, and just when everyone was in opto- mistic mood thinking Spring was here.
