According to the boat doctor, a broken shaft was the culprit. Residents in lhe vicinity of the west shore of Treasure Ishmd were given a real treat Independence Day evening when the Bob Wards of Tacoma put on quite a display at the shore of their Treasure Is- land beach place. The brilliant spectacle illuminated the entire area and lasted about a half hour. Quite a supplement to our mea- ger supply of safe and sang fire- works: Fourth of July guests sharing fun and feasting with the Don Johnstons of Bellevue and Grape- view were Mr. and Mrs. Jack Do- ten and sons Grog and Scott of Tacoma and Mr. and Mrs. Michael Baleh and daughter of 'Bellevue. Bellevue friends dropping in Sun- day were Mr. and Mrs. Arnold Sather. That afternoon, the John- stons, with son Mike and daugh- ter Debbie. reluctantly packed up their things to return to their Bellevue .home after a very pleas- ant Week's vacation. The Don Querys were delighted to have their long-time .friends. Mr. and Mrs. Richard Rex with children Kathy and Bob drive over from Kirkland the evening .of the third. Staying over to spend the holiday with the Querys, the Rex family had a most enjoyable so- journ, a perfect opportunity to' reminisce over the "good old days" when they both lived in Big Piney, ¢Vyo. Vivian's ,folks, Marion and Mardelle Wood were a most en- joyable addition to the group. Picnicking at Spencer Lake with family and relatives were Art and Ernestine Nicklaus and sons Art, Kim and Kris on the Fourth. The get-together gave them a nice op- portunity to visit with Ernest- ine's uncle and aunt. Mr. and Mrs. Henry Grindrod. Another chance for Visiting with the Grindrods before their departure for their Petersburg, Alaska home was af- forded Art and Ernie when they played host for dimmer Saturday evening. THE WALTER Eekerts were delighted the mmaing of the 4th when Mr. Eckert's great niece Mrs. Sally Forek Kirsh and hus- band Jim of Everett dropped in for a short visit. Many of the long-time residents of this area will remember Sally's grandfather Ray Ferck whose home formerly stood just north of where the Ed Okoneks now live. This house was eventually moved to Steilacoom GRAPEVIEW -- A capricious weather man really kept quite a few of us guessing on the Fourth of July weather picture with al- ternate (toes of bright sunshine. clouds, wind and showers, but, for the most part. the day was most acceptable and picnic and boating plans could be carried ont. Proving that it takes more than a few showers to discourage true boating enthusiasts, the Fair Har- bor and Trea,ure Island area spor- ted quite a few handsome yachts over the Fourth. Of these el'arts cruising out of Tacoma, Seattle and other points, the names that came to mind are the El Dora, a handsome 50 footer equipped with radar, the sleek Sea Bee and the Tranqlliller. The Rulon Millers were joined by several fellow- Trailer Sailors over the holiday and their craft made a pretty sight moared in Soule's Cove. Moored in Fair Harbor proper as of the holiday weekend is the handsome 33 foot yacht, the Hol- iday. This craft which is the pro- perry of Mr. and Mrs. Fred Giv- ens is not only attractive to the eye but also has a comfortable 12 foot beam which gives its oc- cupants a very generous amount of elbow room. Prior to its pres- ent location, the Holiday had been moored at the Bremerton Yacht club. A twenty-one pound salmon was the biggest "noise" heard en the Eckert-Eacret beach July Fourth, this monster having been brought in by the Eacrett men, Eke and son Bob. Having put in their first fishing trip of the season the eve- ning before and having brought in two fish, Eke and Bob tried their h.tck again Thursday afternoon. Understandably, of the three then caught, this hugh specimarL got all the attention. Needless to say the Eckert and Eacrett dinner menu included barbecued fresh salmon. THE RERNARD TRESNERS of Tacoma spent the anniversary of the birthdate of our nation here in Grapeview at their beach place on Scale's Cove with friends. Spe- cial activity of fhe day was the erection of Bernie's 15 foot totem pole which he carved during spare hours this past winter. The color- ful speciman is patterned after authentic Indian designs and is quite impressive, Braving tempermentl weather, the Don Pogrebas set out on the Fourth to take Shirley'g folks, the Orville Kagers for a little spin. South of Herren Island. Lady Luck also became tempermental and the Pogreba's boat developed motor trotkble. Fortunately, former Grapeviewites, the Ray Kronquists TED'S DRIVE-IN Invites you to enjoy FREE COFFEE- 5 € CONES where Forck now :lives. While here Sally not only visited with such long-time friends as Mrs. DaisY 'Bush but also took special de- light in showing husband Jim the "haunts" of her childhood. ' The afternoon of the Fourth, the Walter Eckerts, Bob Eacretts and Eke Eacretts gathered on their beach for luscious barbecued salmon, which they shaled with Shir!ey's mother. Mrs. Ronald Dodds of Seattle and Shirley's niece little Miss Lee Ann David- son.. During the course of the af- ternoon the Bill Brickerts. out at their beach property for the day, dropped in for a visit and to admire the Eacrett fishing prow- ess. In the evening, they enjoyed their traditfonal beach fire wa- termelon feast and some safe and sane fireworks. We are very glad to learn that after 17 days of hospitalization in the Tacoma General Hospital, Mrs. Hall Shepard returned home Monday aftenmon. Although lim- ited by crutches. Dixie is most thankfully out of pain now and is delighted that 18-year-old grand- son, Ted Wilson of Taeoma will he spending an indefiiite visit here with them. Hall's sister, Miss Flo- rence Teagarden of San Francis- co is also still with them lending a,. helping hand. Welcoming former Seattle neighbors Friday morning were Mr. and Mrs, A1 Richards. The i Carl Lauridsens, with daughter, Sharon and son Kenneth filled the two days with visiting and fish-. 3ng before their Saturday eve- ning departure. .Last Tuesday the Don Query's front lawn was filled with an as- sortment of disreputable looking characters who claimed to have come to help Miss Catherine Querj, and Kim Nicklaus celebrate .their ninth birthdays. Eighteen strong, the group really carried out the "Hobo Party" theme in great style and were rewarded with tasty lunches packed in red ban- danas ra;kishly swinging from the ends of sticks. Guests attending this elite affair were Mrs. Norma Olsen Leslie and Ray Freeman, Monies Eldridge, ,Pete Hill, Kathy, David, Alice and Clifford Hicks, Gloria Parks (Hicks Bremerton guests) Art and Kris Nicklaus, Georgia Clayton and Bucky, Vir- ginia, Becky and Jamie Query. The mothers of the honored guests, Vivian Query and Ernestine Nick- laus were most ably assisted by Vivian's folks. Mr. and Mrs. Mar- vin .Wood who are visiting from California.

Much to their surprise and interest, several groups had gathered on the ad- joining la;ke to practice for the coming -water show. The most in- teresting of these acts was a par- achutist who Was being pulled by a heavily powered runabout. The very good incentive for the outing was the celebration of Shirley's birthday and the Pogreba's tem- porary childless status. Home once ggain is Larry Lutz who spent the past month in Gret- na, La., with relatives. Delighted to see him arrive at the Seattle International Airport Monday was 'baby brother Lam'ie.
