The Shelton City Commission Tuesday night awarded a contract to Ronald Wilder, Olympia, for the improvement of San Joaquin Ave. on Capitol Hill. His bid of $57,610.50 was the low of four received on the project. Other bidders were W. B. Davis, Olympia, $71,044.50; J. D. Dutton, Olympia, $106,521 and MBI Construction, Olympia, $76,025.60. The project, being done with Urban Arterial funds, is intended to provide a better access to Capitol Hill. The commission agreed to hold over approval of a sewer and water rate increase for some time while further studies into iniquities in present rate structures are investigated further. The commission had given a first reading to an ordinance on the new rates, but, agreed to look into it further after three apartment house owners appeared at the June 22 meeting to 15rotest the $1 per unit charge for apartment houses which was a part of the proposed new rate structure. City Engineer Howard Godat told the commission in looking into the present rate structure, a number of iniquities had been discovered, and, that further study was needed to determine what should be done to make the payments more equitable for all property owners. The commission asked Godat to study an offer from Horace and Geneva Crary to turn over to the city a parcel of land which is of no use to them.

These amounts include county funds and federal funds which are obtained under the Federal Aid Secondary road program. County Engineer J. C. Bridger, in submitting the program, commented it represented an austerity program as far as road construction was concerned. In a letter accompanying the proposed program, he said, in part-the program is based on a rudimentary form of priority programming. However there are so many desperately needed reconstruction projects throughout the county that the Manned Spacecraft Recovery Forces of the U. S. Navy will provide commemorative cachet and cancellation services for the upcoming Apollo 15 manned flight to the moon. Philatelic coordinators designated for the Atlantic and Pacific Fleet Recovery Forces (TASK FORCE 14 and 130) will receive all such covers and make distribution to assigned recovery ships. To )ermit adequate time for handling of covers, collectors should send pre-stamped, self addressed envelopes to the Stolen Car Is Recovered Here The Mason Couuty Sheriff's Office Monday located a car which had been stolen out of the Lacey area last March 3.

S. Postalregulations, only United Statespostage may be used on covers submitted. Stamps (postage) of other countries or the United Nations cannot be used. Cash, money orders or checks in lieu of postage cannot be accepted. It is requested that collectors furnish standard size covers, 3-5/8 inches by 6-% inches, with a filler inserted to simplify handling. Due to the popularity of the Fire Danger Remaining Low "Although abnormally wet weather has kept the fire danger low folks are reminded to handle fireworks with caution and not to leave campfires unattended as they venture into the woods over the long July 4th weekend," Loren A. Tucker, Supervisor of the Department of Natural Resources' Fire Control Division, requested today. "It only takes a few days of selection of the few that can reasonably be constructed with funds available causes the process to deteriorate almost to the point of arbitrary selection. Bridger said the 1972 program is based on about the same amount of money as is available this year, and that the subsequent years are based on increases of about five per cent a year. This represents, he said, the ram cancellation service and the limited postal facilities on recovery ships, each recovery force coordinator will accept a maxilnuln of two covers from an individual collector. When more than the authorized number of covers is received, they will be returned unprocessed. Covers received too late for distribution to Recovery Force units will also be returned unprocessed.
