In the letter, Travis told Mrs, :: Hansen that the city of Shelton i is proud of its beautiful Post Of- fice grounds and asked her to see if the size of the proposed area to be blacktopped could be reduced. The commission told Police Chief Paul Hinton to investigate the possibility of eliminating the small amount of angle parking remaining in the city. Hinton suggested to the com- mission that the action be takeu. He reported property owners on the East side of Fifth Street be- tween Birch and Alder Streets were agreeable to having that side of the street made a no park- ing area. The commission voted to keep the sprinkling rates, under which city residents receive additional water for the same amount of money, in effect in the same amount as in recent years. Street Superintendent Bob Tem- ple reported that there had been some trouble in recent days with vandals knocking down stop signs.

Shaffer, Washington Dis- trict Manager for Richfield Oil Corporation, who presented Sperling with an award for 10 years of service as Richfild's commission agent in Shelton. The presentation was made in Seat- tle at the Olympic Hotel before 350 of Richfiefd's DOWN THE ROAD By CHARLES K. PECK County Extension Agent Scattering fertilizer underneath Douglas fir trees will not solve all the Christmas tree farming problems. Soil fertilizer can be used as one tool for growing prem- ium products, but alone it will not coat sloppy management With such potent salve that you can forget spacing, pruning and tree selection. There is no doubt about it, cer- tain kinds of fertilizm- will cause most trees to grow and to pretty up--.for a while. But if a Christ- mas tree farmer does not know his fertilizer onions, the whole thing may backfire. During the second growing season after ap- plication, trees standing with their roots in the trough, so to speak, may grow so rapidly that at har- vest tim ,.hey might take on the took of a bunch of porcupines holding a cloak room argument. All trds boils down to the fact that little is known about the long range effect of fertilizer on grow- ing farmed wild Christmas trees, say over a period of five or more years. If caution is not followed, some of the boys who like to sling fertilizer with a generous hand, may get hurt. At the Skokomsh Tnmt Hatch- eFy last week, a bunch of the Game Deartment bsys were-tak- ing a coffee break from markhg migrant steelhead. They roosted on work benches and nail kegs, m,nzz]in mugs. All of a sudden Kei Joi'nson said: "Lookie there. There is a humming bird in the window." The little fellow ;squinted through the panes and apparently decided he had enough of the! key sales executives who had gathered from all over the northwest for their Annual General Sales Meeting, Sperling announced this week that Richfield's 15-page Western Wild Flower books will be available free at all Richfield ser- vice stations in this area. ICounty Asks Bridge Funds in Application The county's application fox' $385,000 to assist in the construe- tion of the proposed Harstine Island Bridge under the Acceler- ated Public Works program has been sent to the Housing and Home Finance Agency Office in Seattle, the County Commissior revealed at its meeting Monday. The commission set 11 a.m. Ap- ril 29 as the date for a hearing on the one per cent excise tax on real estate which goes to the schools. The commission must hold a hearing each year and approve the-zolleetion of the money. The commission received two bids on repairing the eaves and downs:p0uts on the court hons,,, and disconnecting the downspouts from the city sewer system and running them into the storm drain. Pr'oposals were submitted by Wheatlev and Keary for' $1,345 and Bo(n Plumbing and Heating for $1,187. The commission will study the proposals with the custodian be- fore taking action.
