Possible sites for a new field were discussod by the delegation and the board with favor View a few blocks outside the city limits of the northwest. Other sites discussed included Johns Prairie and a place near Dayton. Notice of summons and petition in condemnation proceedings re- garding the Shelton airport and adjoining land owned by John MacRae and Peter which the Navy desires to ill- clude as part of the auxiliary landing field it proposes to es— tablish here was served upon the county auditor yesterday with in— structions to appear in Tacoma June 9 for the condemnation hear- ,ing. ‘The Navy is to take official possession of the airport site May 3, but just how soon actual work in preparing the airport for Navy use is not known here. Other business of the board yes- terday was largely routine. An order vacating streets and alleys in parts of the Hood Canal Land and Improvement Company’s plat of Union City, M. A.

Washington Pulp and Paper of Port Angeles won the title, succeeding their fellow townsmen from Rayonier, 1940 champs, and beating out the Camas Crown-Willamette squad,' 1939 champs, by a shade.

And for two weeks, off and on, David hadn’t caught any of i the promised fish. But Friday at Steamboat Is- land things were different. David hooked a giant spring salmon which fought for an hour before finally yielding to David’s angling skill. It weigh- ed over 25 pounds.

This would be at the rate of $8 per 60 foot lot with the money to be paid to the city clerk before June 1, by property owners de- siring to have the dust laying work cover their neighorhoods. No unit smaller than a whole block would be undertaken. This per block price is only about half of the actual cost of the work, the street committee pointed out, but municipal street funds would be used to make up the balance. The action Was recommended by the committee in as much as the city has finances in its street fund which could cover only about 15 blocks, and to designate any cer- tain 15 blocks for the work would be unfair to property owners on blocks not included in that group. Similar To Paving The committee also pointed out that the city is not responsible for ,financing such work anyway as any oiling work or street surfacing program like that is similiar to installing concrete paving or ce- merit sidewalks, the cost of which are always borne by the property owners. Two major drainage projects were authorized by the council following the sewer committee’s recommendations that approxi- mately 350 feet of storm sewer be installed on Sixth street in the northwest section of town to take care of possible overflow waters of the creek in that district, and the installation of approximately 400 feet of storm sewer be made near the Ole Johnson property on the southside hill to take care of water which has been diverted into~the small canyon in that neighborhood. Through the interchange of mat- erials on the two projects the sew- er committee pointed out that a considerable saving to the city can be affected by doing the two JObS at the same time. The council approved the recommendation, 3: the 18-inch wooden pipe which now is carrying the load in the storm sewer in the Sixth street area will be taken up and used for the drainage necessary in the (Continued on Page Two) Munro’s Men’s Shop Has N e W Employe Munro’s Men’s Shop has a new personality behind its counters this week as owner A1 Munro an— nounced that Fred Gardner of Forest Grove, Oregon, had joined his organization.
