Walkup said he asked the man and was told "no", but, the man stated he had a friend who worked at the old Lincoln School Gym who might know the location of the place. Walkup said the white man got into the car with them and he drove to the Lincoln Gym where the man got out and went around to the back or side of the building and returned with a Negro man who was supposed to be the janitor there. Walkup said the Negro appeared to be dumb and could not read or write. The Negro got into the car and showed the others $16,000 in $100 bills which he said he had gotten from a lawyer because his brother had been killed. Walkup said the white man then called him (Walkup) aside and told him the Negro with the money was really dumb and they could take some money away from him by matching bill for bill. The Negro with the money stated, Walkup said, he did not believe Walkup could match any part of his money. Walkup and the white man then went to the bank where Walkup obtained the $2,600. When they returned to the vicinity of the Lincoln Gym, Walkup said, the white man took $2,600 from each of them and tied in a blue handkerchief and laid it beside the tree. Walkup said the white man then suggested he take the two Negros for a beer while he (the white man) watched the money. Walkup said he took the two Negros to a bar and left them there while he returned to the Lincoln Gym area where the white man was supposed to be watching the money. Walkup stated when he got back there, the man and the money were gone, and, that when he returned to the bar, the two Negros were gone. After looking for them for a time, and being unable to find them, he decided to contact the Police. Police said investigation of the incident is continuing. 1, 1971 Iber 26 Publishe"~ ' .............

The Shelton City and Mason County Commissions are studying a report from Nortec Inc. on solid waste management which was presented by the firm recently. The two commissions have taken some exceptions to the recommendations in the study, particularity to the time table which was included in the plan at the insistance of the State Department of Ecology. The commissioners also expressed some disagreement with the changing of guidelines during the study by the Department of Ecology. The recommendations in the plan from Nortec include primarily the establishment of a j oint city-county land fill operation, with mandatory garbage collection established by the county. Under the proposal, all county residents would be required to pay for garbage collection service whether they used it or not. This, the planner says, is necessary in order to finance the landfill operation. The city commission, has also expressed opposition to final adoption of the land fill type of operation until all other possible avenues are studied to the fullest extent. The city is facing a suit from the Olympic Air Pollution Control Authority over its failure to obtain a permit to continue burning at the present city dump. One of the basis being used by the city in its defense is the danger of ground water pollution from sanitary land fill operations. i I, .Was crowned Mason County Rodeo Queen for m connection with the Mason County Fair this s Jennifer Cheny and on the right Princess Teri H IROKO, YOKOYAMA, Japanese exchange student here for the past school year, reads a copy of the Visitor's Guide to Mason County before leaving for her homeland last week. apanese Hiroko Yokoyama, the Japanese student who has been living in Shelton since last August under the sponsorship of the local chapter of the American Field Services, left Friday on her way home.

On Monday of last week Mrs. Wilma Nelson of Seattle visited her summer home on the Grapeview Road south of Allyn for the first time in almost two years. While making a tour through the house she entered the bedroom to discover, to her horror, a body in the bed. She didn't stay around long enough to check its identity or to ascertain if it were dead or alive; she raced next door to the L. C. Morse home and called the Belfair sheriff's office. Two officers were sent out immediately to investigate. One of them later said he had expected it to be some intruder who had broken in to find a place to sleep. But he was wrong. On the bed they found a bloody corpse.., or, at least, a reasonable facsimile of one. With boxes placed under the covers to give the outline of a body, a mop to give the appearance of sleep-tousled hair, the poor corpse also had a knife sticking in it at a point where the chest should be, and, to make it more effective, cranberry juice had been poured around the "wound." (How would you like to come home some night and find something like that in YOUR bed?) Upon further inspection of the house, the officers found a string tied to the kitchen door, which, when the door was opened, turned on a chandelier. Another string tied to another doorknob was connected to a victrola, which was supposed to turn on music when the door. was Jpened, but this one didn't function correctly. Other than the "haunted house" touches added to the decor, nothing else in the house seemed to have been disturbed. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ !ili! i ii!, i i!i,~
