They had a 2040 total in the team event which may possibly place among the lower prize winners, and Marie Kubik and Hazel Ferrier had a 960 doubles total which was sec— ond high when they were finished rolling and probably will stand up for a substantial prize. summon a ' LAWN . mownns SHARPENED PHONE 243 We Call For and Deliver Your Machine SLEYSTER’S FIX-IT SHOP _.-—_—._—.__._.~——- HOW TO GET THE MOST FOR YOUR Marma’ss MONEY . _. p Lesson {2 COMFORT BEGINS HERE Little coils, like this, are the starting point building the Luxury Comfort that has made Beautyrest famous.

In the_Olympic; Peninsula there are about 20 dif-v ferent kinds of flowering plants which occur in no other place.

Two children of grade school age, Denzel and Marlene, are with the Pages, and another son, Joe, is just finishing his first year of high school work at Naches and will come to the new home when the term is ended. The community extends a hearty welcome to the family.
