On Friday, they meet North Thurston in Lacey and on Saturday the squad will travel to Mark Morris High School in Longview for the annual Longview Relays. The meet with Aberdeen was rescheduled for Tuesday, April 6 on Loop Field. Coach Bill Brickert commented on his top prospects, two weeks after the lnterclass meet that was won by the juniors. Junior Tracy Armstrong vaulted 11'6" last year and hasn't pole vaulted this season because of the Climbers' pit trouble. He is much stronger this year and also runs on both relay teams. Sophomore Steve Baze highjumped 5'4" this year and is much rangier this season. Brickert feels he should go at least 5'8". Sophomore John Boggs is faster than last year and has been picked as a relay alternate. Tom Brigham, junior letterman, has tossed the shot 49 feet and has thrown the discus over 141 feet. He hasn't thrown much this season, but he is already ahead of where he was last year at this time. He is also a good 440 prospect and is on the mile relay team. Two-year letterman Gary Burger, a senior, ran a 2:00.9 880 last season. Burger was an exciting performer in last year's Invitational. He was ill recently, but has come back and is much stronger than last year. He will double in the mile and 880 when the Climbers meet North Thurston. Senior Chris Elmlund had a best time of 24.1 last year and already has a 24.0 to his credit in the 220 this year. That time was on Shelton's slow, wet track. Junior Randy Endicott is stronger and more confident this year in his hurdling. His best time in the last campaign was 17.8. Senior Don Gardner is moving from the 440 to the mile, where Brickert says he "looks good." Gardner had mona this winter but is recovering well. Bill Gray, a junior letterman in the shot put, has already surpassed his 38'11" best of last season. Mark Grubb, a senior, ran a 2:09.2 in the 880 last season and looks stronger this year. Junior Mike Hays, who ran the 880 last year, is going to the mile and two mile this season. He has a 10:42.4 to his credit from the Interclass meet. The team's most outstanding distance runner is Rich James. He had a best time of 10:32.1 in the two mile last season. This year, he won both the mile in 4:51.7 and the two mile in 10:35.9. Junior sprinter and long jumper Jimmy Johnsen was the best long jumper in the lnterclass, going 18'2". First-year senior Dave Knauf has tossed the javelin 161 feet and long-jumped over 18 feet in practice. He just started throwing the javelin this week. Senior letterman George Lemagie ran a 51.6 quarter mile last season and will be tough competition for anyone this year. He floated to a 53.0 clocking in long johns in the Interclass. Sophomore Mark Lewis will inherit the name of older brother Randy. "Little Springs'" went 36'6" in the triple jump in the Interclass. He also is a good pole vaulter like his brother who placed second in the Invitational last year. Sophomore George Miller has not pole vaulted this season either, but he is promising with a best of 11'9" at Hood Canal last season. Tom Noreen is the best sophomore sprinter and long jumper on the team. He went 17'2" in the long jump and covered the 100 yard dash in 11.1. Senior Rocky Nutt is a three event man who is doing well. He went 5'10" in the high jump in the lnterclass and looks like a Undefeated after four nonleague matches, Shelton's Highclimber tennis team will take on Aberdeen this Friday bn their home courts in their first Black Hills League match. On Wednesday, March 24 the Climbers faced two opponents. They beat Montesano 4-1 and North Mason 3-1 on the home courts. Bob Quimby won number one singles for the Climbers over Montesano's Bob Stewart 6-2, 6-2. Jeff Okano of Shelton beat Dan Davidson in second singles, 6-2,6-1. Jim Robinson defeated John Ruiz in third singles 7-5,6-1. Jerry Johnsen and Tom Sagmiller teamed up in Shelton's first doubles but' lost to Stewart and Davidson by identical 1-6 scores. Jim Kimmerly and Rick Stevenson of Shelton beat Bruce Cleverger and Boyd Bender 6-0 and 6-0. North Mason came to Shelton the same day and Quimby Recreation Association Plans Fields It won't be long until Mason County has grass fields for various sports at the site of the Mason County Recreation Association's athletic complex. At the lower end of the area where the Association plans to have three fields, there was only one pile of cleared brush and trees to burn. After the pile is burnt, the area will be raked and cleared and the three fields will be seeded with hopes of them being ready this fall at the earlieat and next spring at the latest. The MCRA would like any people who can to help pick up small sticks and rake the area after it is burnt. Many people have given their time to the project. Ivan Dumovich was working on a cat making the piles all last weekend and Harry Swisher helped him one day. Leon Moore also drove a cat this weekend. The Shelton Jaycees have helped both weekends by burning the piles. That burning is under the direction of Vern St. Louis. The progress report on the athletic site will be at the next council meeting of the MCRA to be at Merv's on April 7, at 8:00 p.m. The area will have a water source soon because a local well-driller has offered his talents and will do the job for the cost of the materials alone. The MCRA plans to have a 300 foot square wooded area in the middle of the complex for picnicking and recreation. The whole area is planned for family recreation and fun. Anyone who wants to help with the project can contact MCRA president Don Johnson or any MCRA member for information. SENIOR KEVIN DORCY is the leading Highclimber batter after two games.

But as one fisherman said, about the only way to be sure you have the right thing is to carry a tackle store with you when you go out. 1 found myself in this "wrong bait" spot twice the other weekend when I was fishing a pair of reservoirs which are open the year around. One starts putting out big rainbows the last part of March, the other is noted for crappie catches by the hundreds. At the rainbow spot, I was well equipped with salmon eggs of four different colors and sizes plus some red marshmallows. To my chagrin, the guys and gals catching rainbows up to 4 pounds were getting some of them on white marshmallows and whole kernel corn. On the crappie scene, I had a series of flies which do great in some waters, but had only one thing resembling the jig fly which was knocking them silly. I know about corn and white marshmallows. 1 know about crappie jig flies. I'd just not bothered to have them along. One way to overcome this is to make a list of everything over the years that seems to catch fish regularly, then have some of these along. You'll be surprised how really few different lures or baits you'll need. You don't really need the tackle store, for many lures are made to catch fishermen and not fish. Now if I can just learn to take my own advice... A FEW months ago I mentioned here a pamphlet of recipes for shad which was available from the Oregon Game Commission. Now we have a salmon cookbook from the Washington Fisheries Department. In 44 pages, editor Iola I. Berg has compiled about as good a salmon cookbook as you'll hope to see. Recipes range all the way from "Old Salt's Cooked Salmon," one of the simplest, which is a favorite on commercial fishing boats, to some of the most complicated for gourmet occasions, including salmon newberg, mousse and almondine. The booklet also has a brief section on basics of the various ways to cook salmon which will see a new bride or a young bachelor safely past the pitfalls of learning to cook fish. Included in addition to the old standbys such as broiled, steamed, baked, barbecued and poached salmon are recipes for fried salmon eggs, salmon caviar and salmon cured in olive oil. The booklet costs 50 cents and is available from the Washington Department of Fisheries, General Administration Bldg., Olympia, Wash. 98501. A good investment if you like to eat salmon. 6-0 sets.
