Competitive Athletics Make Better Fighters, : Tubby Graves (lives Splendid Talk At Banquet Honoring Prep Baseball Champions Last Evening If competitive athletics don’t ‘ make better fighting men but of Uncle Sam‘s draftees and volun- teers in all branches of the serv- ice then the athletic programs of our school system are valueless, in the opinion of Tubby Graves, University of Washington base- ball coach, who spoke to a near- capacity crowd which turned out last night to honor Shelton's thrce‘time championship high school baseball team at a ban- quet at the Shelton Hotel. “Competitive athletics are the- best trainers I know of to teach one to take a rap and come back battling,” the Husky diamond mentor told his audience. “Your Homer Taylor, has just mentioned how you boys of the high school baseball team generally spotted the other team a couple _of runs but you came from behind to win. That’s what competitiVe athletics teaches, and it is that ability to take'a rap and come back that is going to be one of the best assets you have in life, whether you are in the service or just making a living Jokes, Experiences Abound . Typical of any Tubby Graves talk, the “sermon” section of it was only a minor part, the rest being taken up with samples from his endless repertoire of jokes and personal experiences during a long and varied baseball career. Most of his examples from ex- perience were tied around teams of his which didn’t like to lose, refused to be beaten until the final out. He called his 1941 Hus- ky team one of these. “On ability we should have finished sixth in a five-team league,” he said. “We ‘had a team batting average of .224, yet I’ll have to put this 1941 team down as one of the best I’ve ever coached because it 'never quit trying and it won a lot of games it had no business winning just for that reason.” The Washington coach com- mgnted on the pleaSing lack of emphasis on What he termed the' very much overworked and mis- used word “sportsmanship.” Wrong Interpretation “So often ‘good sportsmanship’ is a term referred to one who can lose without regret, who doesn't seem to mind losing any more than he does winning. That‘s not sportsmanship to my opinion. When you participate in compe- titive athletics you're out to winl and nothing less. I have a repu- tation for being a good sportsman, but I’m the poorest sport in the .world if you think I can take a licking as easily as I can a. vic- tory.” . Before Mr. Graves’ talk Coach Homer Taylor introduced the in- dividual members of his champ- ionship team, commenting briefly on each member of the squad as he introduced them, and following the main speaker Dick Eddy pre- sented each player with a hand- ber President Ed Faubert acted as toastmaster for" the program. Cups were presented to the fol- lowing members of the team: Seniors Ken Latham, catcher; Ralph LeDrew, pitcher; Jim Mc- Comb, second base; and Lynn Crossman, outfielder; Juniors E1- mer Carlson, pitcher; Earl Lums- . den, first base; Ken Fredson, out- fielder; Warren Woods, shortstop; Bob Pearce, third base; Bob Wald- burger, outfielder; Sophomores Jess Phillips, pitcher; Walt John- son and Bob S. Cole, outfielders; ,and Harold Lambert, manager. ’ Unable to be at the banquet were Pitcher Bob Puhn, Outfield~ ers Ted VanOverbeke, Jack Page Fred Berg, Ray Morris, and Bob Thompson, Catcher Jake giraffe, and Manager Johnny Aus- in. Presentation of. the cups was made possible by donations made by Bert Hurst of the Shelton Sand and Gravel, Al Ferrier of the bowling alleys, McConkey’s Pharmacy, Olsen Furniture Store, Mac’s Corner, Cub Cigar, J.

COUNTY REVISE PIN BALL RULES, SEEKS MORE FEES Supervision, Policing Costs Cited As Reason; $1000 And $750, Operator Fees Set Once again revising county regulations governing the opera- tion of pin-ball games, the coun- ty commissioners passed a reso- lution at their weekly meeting rescinding all previous . pin-ball machine actions and sctya new. scale of fees for operators to be- come effective July 1. Under the "new regulations an operator will have to pay an an- nual fee of $1000 to operate tpin- ball machines in the county i he has the field exclusively, if there are more than one operator of the machines operating them in, Mason County each individual operator» will be assessed $750 for a fee for that privilege. Provision was made in Ithe new resolution for crediting op- erators whose present licenses do not expire until September 1 With the balance remaining to apply on new licenses under‘ the new regulations. No shorter period than one year will be licensed under the new resolution. Viola- tion of the new regulations are to subject operators to fines from $10 to $300 and/or jailterms up to a maximum of 90 days, plus some individual cup on behalf of‘ confiscation 0f their maChin654 the Chamber of Commerce. Cham— l The resolution was justified by the board 'by the statement that the number of machines now op- erating in the county has caused a problem in supervision and po- ‘licing, thus incurring greater ex- pense to the county. ‘ Three dates for public hearings were set as the main remaining business of the board this week. A petition submitted by .W. L. Richardson et al asking the form- ation of a herd district in Kam- ilche, along Skookum Bay, Was received and filed and the pub- lic hearing set for June 30 at two o’clock. Hearing on the proposed addi- tion to the Masonic Division of ‘Shelton Memorial Park, submit- ted by A. L. Bell, was set for June 23 at ten o’clock, and ‘the hearing on the proposed plat of Pleasant Cove Beach Tracts was delayed from this Monday to June 23 at ten o’clock. Evergreen Boys’ State Cancelled Cancellation of the American Legion sponsored Evergreen Boys ‘ State this year, due to the more urgent need for the use of bed- ding, cooking équipment and ‘ camping quarters by the U. i S.

Three hours after the Marines at naval stations along our east- ern seaboard have raised the. flag, their comrades at other posts along the west coast salute the colors as they are hauled briskly to the top of the flagstaff. About two and a half hours later the ceremony is repeated in the Hawaiian Islands. More than five hours will have esapsed be- fore the flag is raised by the sea soldiers in the Philippines. At virtually the same. hours, the Marines hoist the flag in China, at Peiping, Tientsin or Shanghai. Several hours later the west- ward march of daylight catches the fluttering folds of the Star- Spangled Banner flying over Am- erican Consulates and Embassies in Europe, and soon after the sun has passed its zenith in the Old World it is again. flung to the breeze on the Atlantic seaboard. Thus the Stars and Stripes; be- loved standard of a free nation, makes its appearance in the early morning hours and remains flyingx until the sun disappears over the herizon.

TO DOUSE 1 Olympia, Wash, June 12.——The 32 big tank trucks which went into service yesterday from State Forestry Division headquarters here are the direct result of last year‘s forest fire record in the i State of Washington. It happen— ; ed this way: When he totaled up the number of fires and their causes last fall, T. S. Goodyear, 'State Forester, noted that 742 of the 2000 forest fires in 1940 were caused along the highways and roads by flip- pers of cigarets and other burn- ing material. “It was evident,” Goodyear said, “that if the peo‘ ple of this State can’t learn what y will beused in the forestry diviSion’s campaign to reduce the annual destruction wrought on young STATE HAS NEW TANK UNITS GTON GREEN of the 32 big tank trucks and an automatic pump. the other burning objects ROADSIDE FIRES ash-trays are for, the State Div- ision of Forestry will have to de- vise some quick method to. put out fires thus started.” Goodyear hopes the new tank trucks, which can go almost any- where and very quickly, will be the answer. Each has a SOC-gal- lon water tank, one thousand feet of hose, and the latest type of au— tomatic pump. Each truck, in action, will carry a crew of three men, including the driver. The new units will be distributed in the areas which suffered most :TVOTE FAVORS SEPPR RT FOR LEA. PROGRAM Lora] 38 Membership Backs Pro- gram Outlined At Olympia; Renewal 0f Negotia- tions Favored Unanimous support of the pro- gram outlined at the Olympia I conference of Twin District Coun- cil I.W.A. delegates last Monday was voted by Local 38 member- ship in a special meeting held at the Labor Temple here yesterday, Charles Savage, Local 38 business agent, reported today. ‘ Along with support of the Olym- l pia conference program the Local 38 membership passed a motion [urging an immediate resumption of negotiations between the ne- ,gotiating committees represent- ing the Twin District Council and ‘the operators, and expressed in- dignation that the National De- fense Mediation Board had not changed it’s stand on it’s recom- mendations a bit in over three weeks, savage added. In voting to support the Olym- ,..pia conference program, Local 38 members voted in effect to once more reject the National Defense Mediation Board’s recommenda- tions that the striking men re- turn to work, accepting a 7%0 an hour pay raise while further ' negotiations are made over three *other points of contention: (1) union shop, (2) elimination of piece Work, and (3) a week's va- cation with pay each year. Conference Points The Olympia conference pro- gram included these points: (1) sending a telegram to Phillip Mur- ,ray, C.I.O. president, informing him that the conference fully sup- ports the stand of the committee sent to Washington and asking his support of the strikers; (2), that every local union send dele-l gations to persuade the rank and‘ Efile of the Columbia River dis-, ‘trict to reject the mediation‘ , board’s proposals; (3) that picket l lines be placed around every saw- ,mill and logging operation and ‘strengthen present picket lines; (4) that the conference demand immediate negotiations with thr ! employers’ committee. . L .- . . Agent Savage air ‘ ' Business plained, in a statement designed to clear up public misunderstand- ings over the points on 'which the strike is based, that the wage raise which the Mediation Board asks the loggers to accept is prior to the existence of a con- tract between the Twin District Council and the operators, and thus in effect would be no raisa at all, and because surrounding districts have already been grant- ed all things for which the Twin District Council strike has been called. Union Shop Outlined Savage explained the “union shop" point which is one of the four bones of contention in the dispute, with the statement that “union shop means every man go- ing to work in the woods is re-' quired to join the union within 15 days and men who do not be- long to the union must also join. All men must remain in gobd standing and the company to release any man from. em-j ployment if he drops from standing. Also, the company'gis hiring, to union men.” : Savage said reports that certain locals, namely Local 30 at' Rs. - mond and Local 36 at Longvie ‘- Kelso, had voted in opposition to the action of the TWin District Council as a whole are misleading in that Local 30 had never been on strike inasmuch as it had pre- viously negotiated a separate eon- tract with operators in its juris- diction and that Local 36 is af- filiated with the Columbia River District Council and not the Twin District Council. “We also wish to clear up one other point on which confusion is apparent,” Savage continued, “and that is that this is a strike by the I.W.A. Twin District Council against the West Coast Lumber- men’s Ass’n, in other words, a strike of the workers' union against the companies’ union, but 'not a strike by any individual 10- cal against any individual com- DaUY-" . Getting from the local angle to the strike, news dispatches from other parts of the state report a break loOms in th estrike situa- tion, pointing to the result of voting by Local 90, at Port An- geles, where members voted against continuing the strike, and that o. M. Orton, I.W.A. prelii-~ dent, hadqbecn called back lWashington by C.I.O. Chief Phil- lip Murray. . ' Another headline in meta-(po— litan papers said that the gov- ernment had issued orders that striking loggers will lose any right to draft deferment they may have by remaining off their jobs, although this order will have little effect here, the Mason Coun- ty draft board said today, be- cause there have been very occupational deferments granted in this locality.
