OEO Office Is Given Grant The Office of Economic Opportunity had granted $186,200 to the Mason-Thurston Community Action Council, Olympia, to provide for management and encourage residents to organize and take action to deal with their problems. The project director is Samuel Start On A Continued abnormal rainfall, low temperatures and heavy snow pack in the higher elevations have kept fire danger low causing an additional postponement of the opening of the 1971 fire season in western Washington, Bert L. Cole, Commissioner of Public Lands announced this week. "Normally, burning permits are required on March 15 in western Washington," Loren Tucker, DNR Fire Control DivisionSupervisor said, "but because of continued wet weather the burning permit requirement will be delayed until April 15". Economic reasons also figure into delaying the fire permit season, Tucker pointed out. Because of a shortage of funds stemming from extra costs incurred during the severe 1970 fire season, very little seasonal Local Students On Honor Roll Nine students from Shelton are among those on the fall quarter honor roll at Central Washington State College, Ellensburg- Students on the honor roll have achieved a 3.25 grade point average or higher.

Saturda 9:3 " y 5th & Franklin 426.3327 The Shelton Rotary Club recently received a letter from Linda Mounts, daughter of Rev. and Mrs. Horace Mounts, Shelton. Miss Mounts is spending a year in Germany under the Rotary International Student Exchange Program. She is in Darmstadt, Germany. Dear Rotarians, The month of March is already here. The snow of winter falls on the flowers of spring. Seems like the seasons are in competition. Spring should soon come out ahead. Last week there were two Rotary activities that I would like to share with you. One evening there was a special program for two Rotary Clubs and one Lions Club in the Hessiche Landesmuseum. After an introduction we heard the history of an old violin that was made by Antonio Stradivari, an Italian violin-maker (1644-1737). This violin is the oldest of its kind. The first violinist from the Darmstadt Symphony Orchestra played the Stradivari violin and another violin so that we could hear the difference in tones. We heard pieces by Mozart, Bach, and Beethoven. It was a very interesting program. In Wiesbaden the young men's Rotary Club and sons and daughters of Rotarians met in a small theater. We saw the plays "The American Dream" and "The Sandbox" both written by Edward Albee. An hour of discussion followed. The entire group was invited to a reserved room in a nearby hotel for coffee and kuchen. This gave us an opportunity to speak with several young people from different cities. We may meet them again in other Rotary activities. I must tell you about Fasching, the celebration before Ash Wednesday. This is the time for feasting, dressing up in costumes, eating and drinking and just being merry. Some Fasching parties and balls begin as early as the beginning of February. The actual Fasching days are the four days before Ash Wednesday. In the large cities there are parades. I had the experience of being in Mainz to see the seven-kilometer- long parade. There were over 3,000 participants in the parade of floats and bands. The streets were colorfully decorated. Often costumed dummies could be seen on window sills. Streamers and confetti filled the air. Many of the parade watchers were also in costumes, especially children. The favored costumes were clowns, princesses and cowboys. Fasching music could always be heard. Many times the crowds along the streets linked arms and swayed from right to left (or vice versa. It is rather uncomfortable when the people on one side of you are going one way, the people on the other side going the opposite way with you caught in between!) singing in loud voices with the music. All in all, it was quite a merry time. Several class activities have taken place in the last month. The Eleonore school owns a large house in the Odenwald near the small town of Michaelbach. From February to May, each class spends one week there. Seventeen girls from my class and two teachers spent the week in Landheim. In the mornings we studied mathematics. In the afternoons we took walks around the rolling countryside. Our longest walk was three hours. Often the rest breaks were spent in cafes where plenty of tea and kuchen are found. In the evenings we studied the history, art, and culture of Rome in preparation for the class trip to Rome next September. The week was lots of fun. With my class I have visited an auto factory in Russelsheim. In Karlsruhe we visited a nuclear center and an oil refinery. The visitations included films, discussions, and tours. These are extensions to the education of the students in our school. I am now spending % of each week in a kindergarten seminar. I enjoy being with the children in the kindergarten. Sometimes communication is a little difficult. German can sure get muddled coming from the mouth of a child. The training classes of the seminar for studying students are also interesting, especially the arts and crafts class. I am only attending this seminar until April, but in the meanwhile, I'm thoroughly liking the experience. Mozart's "The Magic Flute" was the most recent opera I have seen. It took place in the Opera House in Frankfurt. It was a good production which I enjoyed seeing. Many greetings to all. Most sincerely, Linda LOST, YESTERDAY, somewhere between sunrise and sunset, two golden hours, each set with sixty diamond minutes. No reward is offered, for they are gone forever.
