!!!i THE ENGAGEMENT of Jeanette Marie Waldrip to Stephen K. Geron is announced by her mother, Mrs. Joe Hibler, Houston, Texas. Jeanette's father, Nat A. Waldrip, resides in Olympia. Stephen Geron's parents are Mr. and Mrs. Frank Geron of Houston. Jeanette's grandparents, Mr. and Mrs. Vern Davidson and Mr. and Mrs. James Waldrip, live in • Shelton. The wedding is planned for August 7, ]97] in Houston. Hold Meeting me Kay Bollinger, nine times a grandmother, is at long last the proud possessor of a diploma. Born in Cle Elum, she came with her parents to the Lower Skokomish Valley as an eight year old, and attended the lower Skokomish School. After completing the ninth grade in the Irene S. Reed High School, Kay was forced to discontinue her formal education upon the death of her father. Her mother found employment to support herself and another child. Kay went to work at the Hidden Cove Resort, where she was cook, waitress, maid and storekeeper. The days were ten to 12 hours long, and she worked six days a week for the sum of $20 per month plus room and board. "I was very lucky to have the job," she declares. In 1940 she was married to Ted Bollinger, an employee of the Mason County Road Department. They made their home in the extreme upper portion of the Skokomish Valley and there three daughters were born to them - Peggy, Barbara and Sandy. Twenty years later, in October, the family moved to a home near the junction of Highway 101 and the Skokomish Valley Road; the following March saw the opening of "Ted's Drive-ln", which was operated by Mr. and Mrs. Bollinger and Sandy, the only daughter remaining at home. Kay was widowed in 1967. Self-educated by extensive reading through the years, Mrs. Bollinger nevertheless regretted Ioma )!i ii¸ George "When her family moved into our neighborhood," said George Barkley, "Mattie was just a little girl with her hair in pig-tails. I had to wait for her to grow up." George was born in 1889 on a farm near Garden City, S.D., and he married Mattie in 1915. "I lived for more than 50 years of my life on the very farm where I was born," he stated. In 1942 the Barkleys came to spend a few weeks with a married daughter in Tacoma. They never went back to South Dakota, except to visit. On the second day of their stay with a son and his wife who lived in Indianola, George went to work as a carpenter for the Austin Construction Company. He was before long transferred to Whidby Island, whele Naval Bases were being built. In a year he was sent to Tacoma, and in a few more months came to Shelton to work with the building of the air field. From 1 944 until 1949 the Barkleys lived in Mountain View and once more worked with the soil. "Our land was sandy, but good," George recalls, "and we had nice gardens."

" 116 N. 2nd. 7 "Oh, how wonderful!" I replied. I rushed to the window And asked, "Where is it?" Alas, too slow, I had missed its visit. In the dear dead days of my youth, which l can still remember dimly, I passed through a period in which I considered myself quite a horsewoman. As were my adolescent sons with their first cars, so was I then with a horse. I was a hot-rodder. I delighted in the little tricks that turn a calm and quiet mount into a nervous wreck. With a sly pressure here and there, and an almost imperceptible twinge of the bit, I managed to set a horse prancing and dancing, tossing his head and rearing; I mistakenly thought that I was impressing my old cow-poke step-dad. When I arrived for a summer visit at his ranch it was with a great deal of discomfiture that 1 viewed the aged, bony, swaybacked and mis-shapen creature assigned to me. Grumbling at the prospect of a day on such a dead-head, I swung I The Bra that is Custom Fitted.

"This is it," I thought. "I am going to die embarrassingly beneath the foundered feet of this miserable beast." A whistle blew, and suddenly the universe ceased to rotate. I clung limply to the saddle horn as my step-dad approached. "He's an old rodeo horse," he explained. "He's quite well-mannered with a reasonably intelligent rider, and he does an excellent job of educating the ignorant."
