The high school was honored to htve one of its students receive the first place awards at the Science Fair held at the University of Puget Sound. Virginia Freeman, a sophomore at ISR, won an all expense paid trip to Albuquerque, New Mexico for her entry. Virginia's entry was a new type of pump, which she developed her- self and will now have patented. This is the first time a pump of this type has been perfected.

Lost Lake Woman Welcomed Home From California By Doris Hiekson LOST LAKE It seems that most of the Lost Lake people keep themselves busy and hidden, because when I tried to get in touch with them for this newsy little column they weren't to be found. And the one I did get in touch with seemed to be hungry as you will see in the following. The H, A. Loertseher family were among the dinner guests of the "Welcome Home Grandma" dinner held in honor of Mrs. Bo- ney Loertscher on her return home from California. Others enjoying this fine din- ner and family get together were Sandy Mattson of Shelton, Joy and Bernard Loertscher of Elma, Mr. and Mrs. Rudy Loertscher and Fred of N[ontesano and Miss Bea Nason of Dayton Commtmity. To their dismay there were no Sour Dough Biscuits se'ved. The hungry dinner guests of Miss Peggy Bloomfield were the Clyde McIrvin's. Miss Patty Parker was the Sun- day evening guest in the Don Sac- get home. Incidentally, Donda and Kathy Saeger. like most teenagers, are hungry all the time, so late Sun- day evening they baked them- selves a cake to enjoy as an af- ter dinner, before bedtime snack. 3 NEW 13EEN ADDED ...

This student teacher is Arlo Wetter. who wig graduate from St. Martins College this June. Wetter has lived in Shelton since 1947 and has worked as a logger and in a sawmil. Then, as he put it, "I decided I wanted to do something else." Wetter started college for the first time in 195"6 and has been attending St. Martins part-time since then. Teaching HARY H. KNIGHT SCHOOL NEWS u,o Jou,,,00 Wanl Ad s Flu, Other Aihnents Cut Attendaace And Force Cancellation of Activities Attendance figures for the past two weeks have been much below no1Taal due to a series of epidem- ics that particularly afflict young- sters m adition to assorted flu viruses that are not partial to any age group. To accompany wide- spread cases of flu we are hav- ing mumps, measles and chicken pox. From 21 to 24 daily absences were reported last week with the number constantly increasing as those who were exposed became ill. It was necessary to cancel a number of school activities in- cluding, the swim program and a postponement of group pictures for the annual. Dr. DeShay, district health of- ricer, and Delores Skinner, school nurse, made a special trip to the area to investigate the situation and visit homes of those afflicted. The type of flu virus has not been identified and as a result half a dozen different blood specimens were taken which were sent to Washington, D.C. for analysis. The results of these laboratory tests have not yet been received. A pink-pong table was recently added to the gym equipment. It is constantly in use during the noon hour and regular gym per- iods. Another new and decidedly more lethal item is the "bucking broncho" which is used by only the more adventurous who might be interested in a rodeo career. The critter, which almost defies description, is a steel barrel upon which is placed a saddle and the bucking action is produced by ropes suspended from the ceiling. When one's sadistic friends get hold of those ropes it is only the best riders who can remain aboard without pulling leather. AN ARMED SERVICES prog- • ram is scheduled fro- April lg, Representatives from the various military services will be present to present the advantages to be gained from their particular branch. A special school board meeting was held last week to consider the matter of setting up a special English remedial program in the elementary grades. All lower grades would place special em- phasis on training in basic phon- ics. Small groups would also be assigned to an improved reading class. Our teachers have been aware for some time that students Hummel's 5th and 6th grade room last week. The various art ob- jects were made and decorated by the students themselves and ranged all the way from exotic tropical butterflies to ballarinas. The entire display showed origin- ality and imagination far beyond what one might expect from stu- dents of their age group. FROM THE LIBRARY By ShiHee Murphy The new books are processed and on the shelves. There will be about 20 new titles arriving be- fore the end of the school term to complete this year's selection. The children have read wide- ly from the 398's and the 500's since Christmas. Perhaps the "fact finding" excursions and the "plea- sure trips" we have taken were worth while. Student librarian Judy Landis has begun typing sets of catalog cards. This is excellent training in preparation for employment she hopes to secure with the State Library following graduation this spring. Loretta Beerbower is makin a poster to arouse interest in or coming Big Circus of Books. This display will he shown to our PTO group April 10. Famous big top entries, "The Fat Lady" freaks, thrills galore, wild animals and a "Parade of Star Performers" will be waiting to delight one and all.

An informal question alld a.ns- wer session was held following the talks in which both Nits. Swayze and Miss Reese were most cooperative in answering nunl- erous inquiries. Following the discussions, the guest speakers were honored at a social hour in the school cafe- teria. Refreshments of punch, cof- fee and cup cakes were served by the domestic science depart- ment under the direction of Mrs. Elizabeth Bennett. A clever and darling centerpiece was the subject of much admiration. It consisted of madrona branches inserted in a naturally honeycombed oek found on the beach. Dainty little hats made of nut cups.adorned the branches, giviug an unusually pleasing effect. An 1]nusually attractive ceram- ics displar was featured in Mrs. Good natural-gut fly leaders may be better tllan monofilament ones, but they're so much trouble and deteriorate so easily that only very finicky anglers use them now.
