L. , ( i ,,, . .i THESE WERE THE BURDEN-BEARERS Now thaffthe peak is past and we've all had a chance to catch our breath, a calm and collected review of the 19th, Mason County Forest Festival is in order. It was a dandy, no argument there. That it was such required more than luck, though luck is an essential element in the realm of weather. Many un- kind things have been said about the weather this year, but all was forgiven after what turned up a week ago last Sat- urday. Success was bred through hard work and good manage- ment, along with good breaks. To these people, then, the community owes great gratitude for their vital parts in the 1963 Forest Festival: CLIVE TROY. who as president of the Forest Festival Association in his second year did an outstanding job of co- ordinating all the many facets of this big community event and through unselfish devotion of his time and energies made those fcets mesh smoothly into a well-jelled whole; ROY DUNN and LES SHELVER, who as co-chair- men of the festival's biggest and most painstaking single facet produced another outstanding Paul Bunyan parade; ROY KIMBEL. 1flAX SCHMIDT, GIB RUCKER, JACK KIMBEL (and probably a few others l for putting together another highly entertaining Loggers Sports Show; SHELTON R-OTARIANS as a group and BUD LYON and EINAR OLSOE in particular for at long last restoring the forest festival membership button sale. an important up their 1963 junior high baseball season in defeat. 8-4, at Bremer- ton last week. Lefty Rich Burfier, d was nicked for/distance hits in East's two big innings, a dou-b]e and triple in the first, and a triple sand- wiched between singles in the fifth. Another triple accounted for East's solo marker in the fourth. The final East tally was produced in the sixth on a walk. stolen base and sipgle. Blazer runs came in solos. Dave Winn tripled and Bob Masteller singled him home fn the second: Tom Marshall singled and moved to third on two following walks, then scored on Scott Swisher's in- field out in the third: Jan Donald- son walked with bases full to force home MasLeiler, who had al- so waisted in the sixth; and Mas- teller scored again in the seventh on Dick Knautz' single after walk- ing.

Many others, of course, made large contributions to this 1963 festival, so many that it is impossible  to cover each individually. However, The Journal wishes to toss a special accolade to two youngsters who made their debuts in festival ranks this year, SUE GILLILAND and JOHAN- NA GOLDSCHMIDT, who were assigned, as members of the publicity committee, the task of preparing stories and getting pictures of the pioneer loggers Who Were thefesti- val's honored guests. Sue, a junior, and Jo, a senior, at Irene S. Reed high s.chool and members of the journalism class, managed some- how to give a great deal of time to this assignment and still keep up with their school responsibilities. We have a-strong hunch the community will be hearing more from these young ladies in the future. So, not only to these few key figures, but to all who helped make the 19th Forest Festival what it was among the finesthcse words of appreciation are but an expression of the feeling The Journal knows the ehtire community shares as it proudly, reviews its big annual celebration.

The University of "Washington, University of Puget Sound, Seat- tle U., St. Martins College, Olym- pic College and the' U.S. Coast Guard Academy were represented by 16 former Climber luminaries. UPS teams had Harley Soiners, football; Wayne Carlson and Scott Elliott. basketball; Roy Kimbel, baseball; Joe Wingard, track and Denny Hinton. tennis. Both Somers and Kimbel were sidelined most of the season with various injuries although both let- tered the previous year. Carlson and Elliott played on the Logger junior vaxsicy mainly, although Carlson logged considerable time with the varsity in a non-letter winning effort. Wingard ran the mile and two-mile races for his track letter and Hinton played fourth man on the varsity tennis team Morley Preppernau, Pete Bue- che and tars Sjoholm earned let- ters on the Olympic track squad. Buechel also played football. Mike Olson and Kent Johnson were the third and fourth men respectively on the Ranger net team. Jerry Bloomfield and Corky Pe- terson saw considerable starting action for the St. Martins basket- ball team. Bloomfield was also a starting hurler for the diamond team, Former prep all-starer Greg Ver- million was a frequent starter on the SU Chief tan hoop squad last season. Laurie Somers lettered in var- sity basketball and track at the Coast Guard Academy in New London. Conn.. this year. He gave up football, which he played in his freshman year. to devote more time to basketball. It payed off too. as he was the leading scorer and rebounder on the team. He als9 set a new Academy high jump record this spring. John Sells. the small but pow- erful former Shelton shot putter, competed on the UW Frosh track team this spring.

LEAVE FAWNS ALONE At this time of year when young deer, bear and other wild animals are found in the woods, the State Game Department issues its an- nual reminder that it is unlawful for any person to keep game ani- mals or birds ifi captivity. While most persons take am- reals home with good intentions, they fail to realize that they are lessening the animals' chances for survival. Once raised in captivity, the animals forfeit their chances to survive if returned to the wild SEALS DI/E AT WESTPORT Huge ling cod and about 30 crabs were the prizes of the Hood Canal Seals diving club at it held its monthly dive at the West- port jetty Sunday.

OLYMPIC NATIONAL FOREST RECREATION REPORT Shelton Ranger District All roads are open for travel. Trail maintenance has begun on the Wynoochee. Fishing remains slow on the South Fork of the Skokomish River, but some good catches have been made with na- tural bait. Many young deer are being spotted along roads and logged units. The fire danger has eased greatly due to cooler tem- peratures and rain. Hoodsport Ranger District All roads are now open. A new 10 unit picnic area was opened at Seal Rock Campground on Hood Canal this week. The units are on the water and afford access to the public oyster beach. The fishing conditions: Lake Cushman -fair to good; Lena poor; Hamma Ham- ma River--poor: Elk and Jeffer- son Lakes fair to good. The snow is at the 4500-5000 foot level and reducing rapidly. Rhododendrons are still blooming at the lower elevations along Hood Canal and all the larger drainages to 2000 feet. Recent rains have lessened the fire danger.

Merchants Activate y Wit League Pla h 2-1 Vie|cry ,onday A base.-full wa k and a sac]> rice fly propelled the Shelton Mer- chants to a tritunphant start in their Olympia Fasthall League committments Monday evening in Olympm. The 2-1 victory over BInger's came when Pete Kruger m'ew the free transportation to force Jess Phillips over the plate and Frank Vestal lofted deep enough o right field to permit Bill Nutt to trot borne. Jess was aboard on a walk. Bill on a single, and Dick Cummins slrolled to fill the sacks with one away in the fifth inning. In the bottom half Binger's put across their lone run with the help of a two-ou error following the only two hits Nutt allowed in an other- wise pitching masterpiece. PRIOR TO the fifth the only Binger baserunner was aue to a walk and no others got aboard af- ter the fifth. He struck out 11. The Merchants themselves got only three blows, Dave Swearingen in the sixtl and Nutt his second blow in the seventh, all singles. In four earlier practice games the Merchants posted three victor- ies 21-2 over Rayonier, 6-3 over Highway Department. an 5-3 ov- er the Camms. The loss was by 7-5 to Olympia Merchants. The 5-3 win from the Camms.was achieved on only three hits. but one of them along with five walks sccounted for four runs in the sixth and that was enougn to ov- ercome a 3-1 Camm lead. SWEARINGEN enjoyed a 3-for- 3 record but couldn't stave off the loss to Olympia Merchants. Shel- ton made a gallant comeback af- ter entering the last inning trail- ing by 7-1, scoring four times on two walks, Chub Nutt's single and Phillips' double. A 4-run first inning spearhead- ed the 6-3 victory over Highway during which successive singles by Dick Warren. Bill Sloan, Ron Ahlf and Swearingen got the ball roll- ing. Cummins pitched the victory, as he did the route of Rayonier with a 2-hitter. Phillips rapped a home run. Bill Butt bagged a double and two singles and four runs. The Mer- chants put it out of reach with nine runs m the first frmne.

Social Securily NEW YORK (Special) A number of Mason County residents will soon be getting windfalls in the form of government pension checks. These payments, unsought and unexpected, represent benefits due them under the Old-Age and Sur- vivors Insurance system. They are entitled to them because of their contributions, over the years, to the OASI trust fund. Then why are they not receiv- ing them? Simply because they did not apply for them. Why did they not apply for them? Because they did not real- ize they were entitled to them. The OASI officials themselves were startled to discover recently that there ta'e more than 1,000,000 people in e United States who are eligible for pensions but axe not getting them. i WHEN IT BECAME apparent that there were more of them than had been realized, they gave their giant computers the task Of finding out just how many an ava- lanche of names poured out of the machines. For every 17 people or so who are receiving monthly pension checks, there is an additional one, it develops, who should "be but is not. " In Mason County, there are an estimated 89 of these non-collect- ing eligibles. They could be receiving any- where from $40 a month, which is the minimum amount paid, to the present maximum of $254 a month. THE AVERAGE old-age benefit, according to the latest OASI fig- ures, is $76.18. On the basis of this average, the 89 local beneficiaries who are on the missing list are passing up payments aggregating about $6.780 every month, or $81,350 a year. Some spot-checking on the part of the Government reveals that there are many reasons to explain the failure of qualified people to apply for their pensions. Most of them didn't think they were eligible, This was frequently so in the case of men and women who continued working beyond age 65. Others thought they didn't have enough working quarters to qual- ify. They were unaware of changes in the rules that reduced the num- ber of quarters needed. A large number of others had the false notion that a person had to be needy to be entitled to Soc- ial Security pensions.
