Savage Says IWA Here Not Likely To Strike met with the union's negotiating committees last week to discuss progress in negotiations with lum- ber companies in the region. Say- l age is a inember of the advisory [ committee.

The advisory committee of the Western States Region of the IWA Wait A us tins Lose Car in Alaska Flood and did lose their car, in a flash- fhod near the Alaskan border in the Yukon territory early mast week, friends here have learned. Sketchy details ]earned from the Walt Austin family indicate that Mr. and Mrs. Austin and their two youngest sons, LeRoy and Lonnie, lost everything but the clothes they wore when the Alcan highway near Koidern, Y.T., washed out from under them suddenly, submerging their car and trailer in more than 15 feet of water. The car was a total loss, accord- ing to the reports, but the house- trailer can be salvaged and re- paired. The Austins were on their way to Anchorage to visit another son, Danny, and traveling with mariner Mayor and Mrs. Earl Moo re. The Moores reportedly were about a half-hour ahead of the Austins and had passed the danger area which caught the Austins. The area apparently m near the convergence of three rivers, al- though details are not clear exact- ly what caused the trouble. The two Shelton families left Shelton June 9 for a four-week vacation trip to Alaska via the Alcan highway. Austin is a money order clerk in the Shelton post office and Mrs. Austin is a rural relief carrier.

Bridger said the ferry was being repaired and it was hoped it would be back in service Saturday. In the meantime, the county has arranged for limited foot service to and from the island. The ferry was put out of com- mission about 1]:73 a..n. Monday when a sawmill, owned by Ernest LeGracie, was being taken off the ferry with a winch on the Island side. A cable broke and let the sawmill roll back down onto the ferry. It hit the deckhouse, dam- aging the controls. Neither the hull nor the engine was damaged, Bridger said. George Waite, who was operat- ing the ferry got out of the way in time to escape injury. The foot traffic r:'rvice is being provided dn the  ",m.e schedule as the regular ferry service, during the day, Bridger said. Emergency boat service at night is available by calling the sheriff's office. A tug boat moved the ferry back and foh across Picker/rig Pas- sage Monday afternoon, getting lManders' cars across on the side on which they wanted them while the ferry is out of service. Bridger said while the ferry is in drydock in Tacoma, it will be in- until July 5, the commissioners said.

The Commission agreed there wasn't much they COuld do about the protest as the LID petition had been signed by more than enough property owners so the commission had no choice under the law but to approve. A delegation from the Golden Age Club appeared at the meeting to ask the commission to put in shuffle board courts in Kneeland Park. THEY TOLD the commission a slab of concrete at least four inch- es thick, 60 feet long and six feet wide would be needed for each court. Mayor Frank Travis asked the group to get specifications for the courts and present them to the next commission meeting so the commission could get some idea of about what the cost would be. The club indicated if the city would put in the court, they would be willing to provide the playing equipment.

C., brought sorrow and grateful,remembranees of his van uable services in Mason County. Sen. Case is credited by many who were connected with it in- timately as the nmn responsible for getting the sustained yield law on the road during its formative days during World War II. As a key committee member, Sen. Case ]s credited with getting the sustained yield bill approved by the committee and onto the fleer for its ultimate passage into law. From it followed the 100-year co- operative logging contract between the Simpson Timber Company and the U. S. Forest Service which as- sured the company of a permanent source of raw materials for its Shelton latch, from County School super- intendent J. W.

All those having news and a(I- wrl:islng tallY should bear In mind this ulvulced deadline schedule for Shelton area residents will have a "safe and sane" Fourth of July as far as fireworks are concerned whether they want it or not. Both county ordinances and a state law which went into effect Jan. 1 forbid the sale, possession, storing or transportation of any other than a few items reich as sparklers and cap pistols with a limited amount of powdel" in the caps. THE LAW is effective in both the Skokomish and Squaxin Island Indian Reservations in Mason County, although it does not af- fect some Indian Reservations in the state. The two county reservations are among those which have asked for state jurisdict{on, and, therefore come under all county and state laws except those pertaining to hunting and fishing. Under the new state law, Sheriff William Potter said, the county no longer issues permits to shoot fire- works over the water as they have in the past. An organization wanting to give a fireworks display can get per- mission to do so by getting per- nlission from county officials and from the state fire marshal's .of- rice. Such displays must be han- dled by two qualified pyrotechni- clans. Seattle Man Joins 5taft of Public Assistance Office Here Clyde W.
