The community can show a mea- sure of appreciation by turning out strong for Monday’s open house.” ApI‘ITFOOd Stamp Sales $5,706 In Value, $3,804 Cash April food stamp sales through the local office added $5,706 in actual value to the money spent by Mason County public assist- ance recipients since the food stamp plan was inaugurated here last November, bring the total to $23,687 in that period, Miss Joyce West, food stamp clerk, said yesterday.

P.U.D. Energizes 41/2 Miles In Lake Spencer Vicinity Electricity reached 19 more ru- ral homes early this week when Public Utility District No. 3 en- ergized 41/; miles of new lines in the Spencer Lake area, cross- ing the lake in two places with laterals to reach some of the new power customers. The P.U.D. 3 construction crews are now working on extensions and laterals to the Agate exten-' sion under the supervision of Construction Foreman Norm Westlund, working in two direc— tions from the Agate extension to reach Hammond Point resi- dents and also picking up other applicants for public power at the other end of the lines closer to Agate proper. Slashing for the Arcadia exten- sion will start this week and other crews will begin digging holes and setting poles in Isabella Valley immediately, too. At the same time, P.U.D.

CREW BUSY Reflecting the first results of the big electric range sales cam- paign started by Shelton ..elec- trical appliance dealers last week, the P.U.D. No. 3 city maintenance crew. has been keptmon the jump this week making range hookups, reports Manager E. W. Johnson. Electric range purchasers are taking advantage of the special $25 installation price set by P. U.D. 3 on electric range install- ations and of the fact that that $25 can be written into the sales contract when the range purchase is made, thus eliminating the necessity of digging up that much money at one crack. This electric range campaign will be conducted for the next three months. Local Scouts To Help Distribute Defense Posters President Franklin D.

MUST COME QUICK Personal Experience With German Armed Might Related By Treasury Official l Eye—witness, personal experiences with the German blitzkreig in France were related by Karl Richards, U. S. Treasury Depart- ment staff member, to a.‘ spell- bound audience of Kiwanians and their ladies which crammed the banquet room at Shelton Hotel Tuesday evening. Mr. Richards escaped death by slender margins three times when he twice left areas just ahead of blitzkreigs and once arrived in an area just after it had been blitzed, he said he was told by German officers with whom he talked when the amazingly swift-moving Germany army once caught up with his car. ‘ He told his Shelton audience of the German armed might he per- sonally witnessed, its precision, swiftness, and uniformity in equip- ment, against which the French had vastly inferior equipment, training and preparedness. He told of eating with the Ger- man army and seeing in actuality! the equality of mess in Hitler’s war machine, men and officers eating the same menu, dining at the same tables in most cases. While he was in custody of the German army Mr. Richards ex— perienced a bombing by Allied planes, so had the unusual ex- perience of being bombed by both sides in the battle of France. In his conclusion Mr. Richards implored Americans to unite their efforts in defense, to let French and British examples of disunity be a lesson, for Hitler al- ready has a seven-year head start on the world in preparing his war machine.

Rambo and Bushnell, independ- ent logging firm, were the suc- cessful bidders, paying $25,950 for the timber. Don McKay of the McKay Logging company and Pe- ter Shafer of the Shafer Broth- ers Logging company of Grays Harbor were the other bidders on the tracts.

Two other sales were consu- mated at the sale, Mackey and Lewis, a logging firm, paying the state’s appraisal value of $726 for 40 acres of timber near Lake Isa- bella, and Nolan Mason, Mason County deputy treasurer, paying $571.20 for 14.28 lineal chains of tidelands between Hoodsport and Potlatch.

In reconstructing the accident, Aden said the car driven by Dun- bar turned east on Railroad (toward the business section) af~ ter making a left turn off Tenth street but swung too far to the right and sideswiped the flat-bed lumber truck owned by Ted Fisch which was parked in front of the Fisch residence, second house from the corner. ' . The entire right side of the Gordon car, above the chassis, was torn away and Edgley, sitting on the right side of the driver’s seat, fell out about 50 feet far- ther on, suffering the injuries which proved fatal slightly more than 24.. hours later,~ Aden said. Another 30 feet farther on Mrs. Edgley, who was sitting on the right side of the back seat, fell out but suffered only superficial injuries, he continued, while the badly wrecked car finally stop- ped approximately 450 feet, al— most two blocks, from the point of the collision. Mrs. Dunbar and sons of Mr. and Mrs. Dunbar and Mr. and Mrs. Edgley were other occupants of the car but were not hurt. Funeral Monday Funeral services for Edgley will be held at two o’clock next Mon— day from Witsiers Chapel with burial following in Tacoma. He' was born at Pocatello, Idaho, on February 24, 1898.
