A former died a ek ago. Since up leaving the Island many years ago George and his wife resided in Shelton. The funeral was held in Olympia a week ago Monday. Another Island friend, Gar Williams was also hospitalized in Tacoma a little over a week ago. On his solemn oath he would be a good boy the doctor released him to come back home this past Monday. And still another Islander, John Dunlap was hospitalized last Friday evening. John, is in the intensive care unit at Mason General Hospital, and of course can have no visitors. At this writing he was resting well, but it was also expected he'd be confined for several more days. And a former Islander that had been hospitalized recently, best known to most of us as 'Granny' Smalley has been back home in Shelton with her legs getting lots better. Then a few days :ago Granny lost her grip on a heavy cast iron skillet and dropped it on her feet breaking some toes in one of her feet. We're all sorry to hear of her unfortunate setback and hope she'll have a speedy recuperation. To each of these friends on sick list we wish a most speedy recovery. Bob and Dorothy Barnett took advantage of their twin sons, Phil and David being home from college on spring vacation to 'sistersit' with Nancy. (Nancy claims she was brother sitting?) At any rate mona and dad drove down to Nevada to spend last week. Among the several 'bright spots' they took in was the Bob Cosby Show at the South Shore Room of the Harrah Club. The twins had sure made Dorothy and Bob proud enough to pop their buttons. Phil finished this quarter with a 4.0 average and David just missed that same grade mark by the width of a very skinny hair? Congratulations boys? This past weekend the Ernie Byers enjoyed having the house next door bursting with life. Two of their nieces enjoyed a weekend on the Island at their parents home on Pt. Wilson. Betty Jo Radelett and her son, Denis and one of his friends, along with a friend of Betty's, Mrs. Ross, all from Portland spent the weekend at the Chaffee house. Betty Jo told friend.,; here she plans soon to open her own Chiropractor's office in Washougal about fifteen or twenty miles east of Vancouver. Another niece of the Byers, Mrs. Ernie Chaffee of Vancouver accompanied by six girl scouts also enjoyed an overnight stay at the Chaffee house. The kind of visitors that Gorden and Gret Simmons had over this past weekend are really appreciated. Their son-in-law, Sil Arata and their grandson, young Sil spent the major portion of the weekend doing a number of errands and chores for the Simmons. Recent guests of Helen Lammers included the Johnny Martins of Seattle. Johnny for many years was Helen's foreman at her place of business in that city. This past weekend eleven members of the Seward family enjoyed a long evening of marvelous slides. Their son, Dick had some he'd taken in Arizona. And their old friends the AI Andersons who are avid rock hounds were also present and brought along lots of their pictures they've taken on the many caravans they've taken. Thora Seward's sister, Tog McQuillin, spent several days here on the Island with the Sewards. Monday Helen, Thora and Tog all jumped into Helen's new car and headed for Alderbrook for lunch. The weather left a lot to be desired, but the gals didn't let it dampen their spirits one little bit. Sunday afternoon Esther Goetsch had an impromptu family gathering for dinner. Her sister, Signie Callahan and husband from Bainbridge came down to spend the night. Another sister, Dorothy Chapman and her husband, Phil and part of their family from Pickering dropped in. Up from Portland this last weekend to visit her dad, Theo Waite was his daughter, Jerry Lewis and her husband, Frank and their three girls. Pat and John Dunlap certainly had their weekend plans changed this past weekend when John entered the hospital instead of doing what they had planned. On Thursday evening they had attended the Opening Night of an Art Show to be held at the old Victorian Hotel in Port Orchard and they were the featured artists. (To their surprise their picture with a story was on the front page of the News Tribune one day last week.) The story told of plans to restore the old hotel for a museum.

SYMBOL OF QUALITY IN CONCRETE SHELTON PLANT 7th & Park, Shelton, Washington Phone 426-3344 show were to help finance this worthwhile cause. Although the show was originally planned for just three days it was decided to continue it for two weeks, since it was doing so very well. Saturday afternoon while Pauline Carnes was visiting her folks, the John Hitchcocks, she decided to give an old high school chum who lives near Shelton a call to see if she could run out for a visit. It had been ten years or better since Pauline and Gail Hurst had gotten together to see each other and visit. Saturday evening a number of full-time and some part-time Islanders joined a large crowd at the Memorial Hall in honor of Chet Streckenbach. Present were the Martin Goetsches, the Bob Barnetts, Barb and Jim Gorman, the Otto Goldschmids, Dick, Joe and Bud Glaser, the Glenn Yates and of course, Stan and Willa Ann Smith and their three girls and the honored guest and his wife. The dinner was very good accompanied by a warm, friendly atmosphere. Being a bit of an amateur cake decorator, the beautiful cake depicting Mason County really impressed yours truly. A marvelous tribute to a truly wonderful deserving man. Long-ime esl en By VIVIEN OLSON LILLIWAUP - Daisy Vance, long time resident of this area, is currently hospitalized in Mason General Hospital. Her daughter, Marian Johnstone, reports that she is doing well, and her condition is good. For many years Mrs. Vance was the Lilliwaup correspondent for the Journal, as well as an active member of the Lilliwaup Community club and other civic and local affairs. Her many friends in the area may wish to send cards and greetings while she is ill. Fishing Fair A fair amount of mostly small salmon have been hooked by rugged fishermen in this area in the past couple of weeks. Bob Blanchard, who comes down with his family from the Skok. Valley to spend most weekends at his Southside [n ospu Ayock Beach home, got three small silvers Sunday. Spring Late Which is putting it mildly. The snow, sleet, icy rain, high winds and consistently low temperatures which have dampened spirits and made for a soggy world, have also deterred the wild life. The black brant which usually returns to this area in February finally put in their appearance about a month late. The humming bird feeders have been swinging forlornly in the rain -- untouched. Not a sign of swallows darting about as vet. And the "peepers" which one normally hears in early February are just now beginning their singing. The trillium are up, but reluctanHy. The persistent daffodils raise up their little heads only to be beaten down again and again and again. Elusive spring, where are you? An extensive slide just south of Eagle Creek brought mud and trees sliding down across the hiway, blocking all traffic about 6:50 a.m. Monday. Luckily there were no vehicles on the highway at the time of the slide. By MRS. RAY KRATCHA SOUTHSIDE - Southside Grange meets April 2. It will be potluck.
