Other buildings were added and the whole place through much blood and sweat they landscaped into a real showplace. The real conversation piece was a Totem Pole hand-carved by Jim just two or three years ago and held its place of honor between the garage and the house and was in view of passing boaters.

"llousing is the heart of the -market for lumber and plywood, and there is a strong correlation between housing starts, new orders for lumber and plywood and prices of those commodities," Flora said. Flora cautioned, however, that some things will need watching in the months ahead. "The first is that scourge of the construction industry, federal monetary policy," he said. "Although building and home buying are picking up, many of my neighbors seem to be waiting for interest rates on home mortgages to cross the 7 per cent line," he said.

"The time has been changed from the usual 7:30 start to 8:15 to accommodate those who usually go to choir practice and church on Wednesday nights.

Formerly Point Wilson residents they are now Point Johnson residents. Their many, many friends here hope they will enjoy their new home and location very much and hope they won't forget how to get to the Island. We all hope they'll come back often to visit old friends. Just before moving they renewed their subscription to The Journal so they could keep in touch with Islanders through this column. This writer sincerely hopes they won't be disappointed. While out taking Rusty around to gather subscriptions this past week or so, this reporter took advantage of the opportunity to gather a bit of news first hand and visit a few places either never seen before or hadn't been to for a long period of time. One such stop was at the Carroll EnD home to see what progress they've been making these past few months. Last September they built a combination shop and living quarters. Later when they rebuild the main house their present accommodations will be turned into a guest house. Mrs. EnD found employment a bit closer to home about a month ago. Previously she had been working for a school in the Parkland area of Tacoma. Now she is at the Vocational School this side of OlYmpia which makes commuting much more pleasant and, of course, shorter. Their daughter, Lynn Hiedel and her husband and two boys were down for the weekend from their Tacoma home. Our jaunt also took us over to the Everett Simons home. This writer feels at a loss for adequate words to describe the beauty we found nestled in this lovely woodland setting. The ponds and streams that are tucked in here and there around their home form such a beautiful and reflective backdrop for the many, many flower beds which were amass with gorgeous spring beauty. Everett has also built an addition onto their home since his retirement. The spacious living room includes a warm cheerful fireplace to add cheer on winter nights and take the chill off the house in the spring and fall when the new furnace in the basement isn't needed. Another stop was down at Island Shores at the Johnnie Johnson home which was another place I'd been intending to see for quite some time. They have a lovely mobile home which just seems to fit its cozy background setting of maples and evergreens. Johnny has been putting his carpentry talents to good use since they came to the Island and has added a lovely recreation room for the days when several of their friends happen to drop in to say 'Hi' all at the same time. There's plenty of room for an evening of cards, or watching TV or just sitting around the fireplace chatting whatever the mood dictates. On still another evening we dropped in at the Craft home at the Hole-in-the-Wall and had an enjoyable visit with Harry and Shirley. Their many pet raccoons 'dropped around' for their daily handouts and entertained our small-fry as well as friendly husband and myself. They had other visitors recently who came specifically to be entertained by the masked pets. Grant Wolfkill and his wife, Barbara who hails from Hong Kong originally were in the area visiting his folks who live in the Agate area. They had just arrived from their home in New York and met Barbara's sister who'd flown over from Hong Kong for a visit. So they brought her out to the Craft home to spend an evening watching the antics of the Your Island is Hartstene and it's one of the most beautiful places in all the world. Strong words? Maybe... but consider this: Hartstene Pointe on Hartstene Island has been carefully and gently de- veloped by Weyerhaeuser. For example, our lots are circular. That's right, they're round as a new dime. And no lot touches another. There is com- mon green aie,a siJrrduh'aing every" lot to guar&hie'e you a corner on privacy. In fact we've dedicated as much land to common area as we have to lots, including three miles of community beach. Amenities? How about a recreation lodge with ev- ery type of recreational activity imaginable. An Olympic-size swimming pool, not to mention the sandy beaches for you and your family to walk. In addition to this we have Islandhouses that you can buy. We went to the trouble to put in a sewage treatment plant to help preserve the purity of the land and its waters. We hand-cleared much of the land so that foliage grows right up next to the roads. We buried all our utilities so power poles raccoons. Another stop was at the Marshall Olson home where we learned that Helen had left Marshall to hold down the fort and take over as chief cook and bottle washer and caretaker of their livestock, dog, birds, chipmunks, squirrels etc. while she took a jaunt down to the harbor. Helen caught a bus in McCleary which took her to Montesano where she met friends, the R. Burtons from North River. Wednesday she joined six other members of her garden club and they all enjoyed a hmcheon as Acosta. All the youngsters currently taking square dance lessons sponsored by the Salty Sashayers Club at the Fairground journeyed to Olympia last Wednesday evening to accept an invitation from that club to join them for a dance at the half-way point in the session of lessons at the kac-a-do Hall near Gull Harbor. Those going included the five Hammonds, three Bridges and two Yates youngsters. Thursday a week ago Ella and Jim McAuliffe headed north to spend a delightful day with some of Jim's other fellow Park Rangers. The setting for the gathering was on beautiful Lake Samamish as guests of that park's Ranger and his wife, Warren and Betty Taylor. Other parks represented included Winberg, by the Littles: Potlatch by George and Clara Carlson; Belfair by the Art lrvins: Twanoh by the Armon Tubergs. Also there was the Ranger from the State Recreation area of Mount Rainier. Altogether there were 1 8 gathered to enjoy a pot luck dinner. The group also enjoyed some unexpected entertainment from a nearby Skydiving School. They were treated to both skydiving and students learning the art of free failing from planes. Ella said what seemed so amazing to her was each one landed in the same spot. And although there was a highway nearby there wasn't so nmch as even a cloCe call. Gals don't forget that next Thursday is the date of the Annual Pickering Party. The Harstine Women's Club has a real fun day planned for their guests, the Pickering Women's Club.
