First they bickered and quarrel- led mnong themselves, making the state as well as themselves the laughing stock fro" other states much to the disgust of most of us. Then they came up with a bill to close he stores early and on weekends, keep the bars open lon- ger, and voted for the pin ball machine gambling bill, so I guess the only people who will get to go to church will be the people who work in the stores. The rest of us will have a hang- over or be too tired from playing the pin ball machines to go to church. The only alternative I can think of is for the churches to put pin ball machines in their lob- bies. Then they had to have a special session and came up with a bill to raise the salaries as well as more liberal expense accounts for the legislators, extend the session to 100 days and the possibility of a building costing several millions of Shelton, participated in a ma- Allyn Shell Service ............ 28 28 jor amphibious exercise held on Eells & Valley . ................. 23 23 March 2 to 10 off the coast of Mink Tree Cafe ............... 22 34 Southern California.
