Along about April 1 2 of this month Wilbur Jacobson suffered a broken arm when he fell from a ladder while limbing a few evergreen trees in his yard. Doris reported this past Sunday that he was due to get another cast put on the first of this week. The swelling had gone down sufficiently and the first cast had gotten a bit too loose. The Bob Putvin's youngest son, Clint, was hospitalized a week ago Sunday with what the doctor said was an attack of appendicitis. Although they were enlarged and were removed there was also an infection of the intestines which was the biggest culprit and mostly responsible for the young boy's illness. Clint was released Friday, but will be home from school for a few more days to recuperate. And still another Pt. Wilson resident, George Wangelin was also hospitalized for several days last week. He, too, is back home once again and feeling quite a bit better now. And we understand, also that Monica Pridham has been hospitalized as the result of a rather freak but very serious accident.

Her husband, A1 was close enough to catch it and keep the full force off of her, but even at that there was a head and neck injury as a result. Certainly hope you'll soon be better, Monica. Now, enough bad news for one week (even two) we'll move on to some happier news. Two Island couples became grandparents once again this month. We understand Ivan Thorsos and his two boys spent Spring vacation at their place on Sunset Hill. Meanwhile Gwen (Morn) was back east getting acquainted with a brand new granddaughter, Rachel Linnet Robbins and giving her daughter a helping hand. The company the proud new Papa works for had an assignment out of the country. but was kind enough to provide a nurse to step in for him during his absencefrom home and even providegrandma's plane fare! And still another Island couple also became Grandparents for the third time. Steig and Beula Gabrielsen received word for Hayden Lake, Ida., that their son Steve and his wife, Joan, were the proud new parents for a baby boy which they named Darren George April 8. The new arrival weighed in at 9 pounds IV2 ounces and joined a sister, Cris, and brother David Other news from the Gabrietsens is that they just returned last Friday from a trip up North. Leaving here with their pickup and camper with a boat and trailer in tow they spent their first night out at Wenberg State Park just north of Everett. The next day they ferried from Tsawwassen B. C. to the Canadian Island of Saltspring which lies between (;aliano Island and Vancouver Island. Using the Island's one mare town of Ganges as a starting point each day they headed for a different part of the large Island for a day of exploring. One day they drove to the southeast part of the Island and wound up at Beaver Point. Here they visited a family that has owned and farmed this land for more than 100 years. They own more than 1,200 acres, but are ece ly mainly taxed on that part which is in use as a farm. They are self-sustaining raising everything they need to eat from fruit and vegetable to livestock. At the present time the land is in the parents name who are in their 80's with an unmarried daughter and her brother and his tamily caring for the parents and taking care of the place. On a trip to the northeast of the Island they sat on the beach and watched a raft of logs being put together. Later they talked with a blind man and his wife, also nearby residents. But probably the most interesting experience of the whole trip was their day spent at Vesuvius Bay. There they discovered a Lodge owned by a group of young people who call themselves X-Kalay. Their main headquarters are Vancouver B. C. where they have their warehouses. But the most interesting part of the story are the young folks themselves. A good share of them have at some previous time been in some type of trouble with the law. They range from alcoholics, involved in stealing and assorted other crimes to drug addiction. But each of them has put the past behind them to join this group. A portion of the group doesn't have a dark past but has heard of the group and also wishes to join them. All it takes to become a member of the corporative venture is just to turn over any assets to the group and agree to follow their way of life helping one another and sharing the profits together. Once a member anything anyone needs is furnished by the whole group and all work to make the Lodge and the other various commercial enterprises successful. And it is becoming more successful with each passing day. Still another jaunt took them up Mount Maxwell which boasts an elevation of 1,877 feet which gave them a real bird's eye view of KIDNEY DANGER SIGNALS -- BACKACHE Or frequent calls (day and night) can be nature's warning of functional kidney disorders -- "Danger Ahead."

Bill and Mary Helen Gortz certainly took both their parents by surprise recently when they drove up from Yuma, Ariz. (Their vacation was a week later than that of this area.) So at the lasl minute they loaded the car and set out for Harstine. They spent nights with Bill's morn, Esther and days down at Mary Helen's folks, the Everett Simons. They also called on the Aunts, Esther and Martin Goetsch and the Phil and Dorothy Chapman home. They arrived Sunday and left for home early Friday morning after a tiring but pleasant short week. They couldn't have picked a better time to enjoy the beauty of the Simons home with spring literally bursting into bloom and being reflected in the many gorgeous pools that are nestled here and there. A niece of Martin Goetsches dropped in unexpectedly last Sunday. Many, many years ago she and her folks spent a good portion of the summer on the Island. Mrs. Aletha Mosely and a friend from Portland drove up to call on friends and relatives. Over the weekend three boy scout troops from Olylnpia, ('hehalis and Seattle spent the weekend at Squaxin State Boat Park. Ranger Jim McAuliffe reported the three groups totaled around 100 boys give or take one or two.
