It is situated on the strait of Juan de Fuca and is directly 17 miles acrOSS from the beautiful city of Victoria, BC. The city also claims the dis- tinction of being the second na- tional city in the United States. the other being Washington, DC. The site was set aside in 1863 under the personal direction of President Lincoln. One of the most wonderful har- bors in the world, protected by a narrow strip of land approximate- ly four miles in length, affords anchorage in normal years for the entire Pacific Fleet during the summer months. DANCE at DAYTON 9 Saturday Mar. 29 Music by Four Aces Gents 35¢ ~ Ladies 10¢ I T0 SHELTON LADY INTERESTING l Excerpts are reprinted herein ‘from a letter received by Mrs. lBill Dickie, 719 Pine street. writ- }ten by a close personal friend, Miss Dorothea Hulpke, who re- icently went to Africa to carry ‘ on missionary work and is at pres- lent stationed at Butembo (Kat- wa) in the Belgian Congo. l “After traveling four weeks for l, about 4,000 miles north from i l Cape Town, we arrived at our l station we had a smooth journey as far as events are con— {cerned but the riding was rough. Roads seem to be in fair condi— tion for light cars but riding in a heavy loaded truck with trailer ,magnified the bumps and corru- L gations in the road and there were ,plenty of each. We were thank— lful to find roads, though in many ,places they were no more than fruts. : “Those of us who hadn’t seen iAfrica before didn‘t seem to be Isatisfied in our own minds we lwere actually here until we reach- led some of the more tropical look- ling places in the Congo. There Iwere some spots of real beauty, ,of which Victoria Falls was the ‘high spot. As a whole, however, .the scenic beauty which we en- ,joyed in Cape Province was sad- ;ly lacking only to be replaced by ,long barren stretches of desert fiand plain, or parched looking hills 'and occasionally what seemed to: be a stray mountain in the dis— tance. Later it was generally ibrush and bamboo trees which so iimmediately surrounded us that jwe saw nothing but these for mile iupon mile. To break the mono- itony an antelope or perhaps a family of monkeys or baboons lwould cross the path, run off into .the brush and stop to watch. We zsaw no lions, although I was :greatly thrilled to see several elephants in Albert National Park. 1 “The last few days we traveled {through mountainOUS country. We iclimbed steep escarpments, but I isaw nothing comparable to our ’beautiful Mt. Rainier or any of, the more scenic spots in western U. S. or Canada.

This ’is still a needy land for the Gos- lpel light. {I “We were thankful to find roads and bridges passable which ‘are often covered with water ,during the rainy season. Bridges are marked 'Do Not Pass Over iBridge 1f Water Is Above Rail.’ ‘We were not detained at any of lthese and there were many. We fdid feel one give way under us, but only one wheel went through. l "Five nights we spent at mis- sion stations enroute. These Were ,true havens of rest. The hotels 'were not always so pleasant. Of- lten we would have preferred eat- iing with our eyes closed or in the dark but we suffered no ill ef- fects from the food. “There is not a sign of war ,here but we saw soldiers all the {way up. Most cf the bridges are guarded, the bridge at Victoria iFalls heavily. Had my first fried jgrasshoppers. They are a real ldelicacy. I attended my first :native wedding. It is very pe- culiar but also very solemn and lsac like. "Things don’t get done as quick- ly here in the Congo as at heme. {This house has been in the process ‘of being built for three years. The inatives who do the work are giv- en the privilege of schooling, at .least 21/2 hours a day. It takes Ia lot more effort to teach those who are grown than it does the children, whose minds are alert. “Work among the orphans seems ithe most urge t now. They are 'losing 90% them. When a native mother dies her baby is *placed on her body and buried iwith her. Only the native Chris— ‘tians care for children other than their own. “When I have learned the lan- iguage I expect to be sent to IKitsumburu, 50 miles away, where 'there is no white missionary now and I expect to take a native trained under Dr. Becker to help ,me in the work. I hope to or- lganize work among the mothers and babies and‘ small children while the native medical helper can dothe dispensary work under my direction.” ‘OLYMPIA BUSINESS CLUB INVITES YOUNG CLUBMEN Olympia Young Men’s Business iClub members want to be hosts lto 20 or 25 Shelton young busi- ‘i'ness men on April 4 at Olympia, President Bob Finch, former Shel- tonian who is now president of the Capital City Y.M.B.C., an- lnounced yesterday.

This engine is now in the test stage and plans are being developed for producing it in large quantities when and if needed. B A Ford aircraft apprentice school has been established, to train 2000 students at a time. The Ford Motor Company’s business has always been to serve the needs of the American people. In providing them with low-cost transportation for the past 38 years, we have devel- oped one of the country’s larg- est and most useful industrial units. During a national emer- gency, we feel that these facili- ties should be devoted without reserve to our country’s needs. Toward that end we started rolling months ago, with these results: $21,000,000 Ford airplane en- gine factory, only months ago, is nearly completed. Production will start with an initial order for 4,236 eighteen cylinder, cit-cooled, dOuble—row, radial engines. We are building a new $800,000 Ford magnesium alloy foundry, one of the few in the country. It is already producing lightweight air- That is a report of progress to date. The experience and facilities of this company can be used to do much of the job which America now needs to get done in a hurry.
