FHE EIGHTY POUND cornelian agate found by Ronald Gosser on a ck-digging trip to Oregon measures 47 inches in circumference. n Find By JAN DANFORD A rock-hound's dream came 'true on Jur~e ~-0 for Ronald Gasser. - ,~i~c~, he anearthed an ' g0:pound corqBlian agate with a circumference of 47 inches. tie and his wife, Myrtle, who shares his hobby, were camping at Polly Drummond's Agate Beds, a 40-acre field i1: Oregon where for a daily fec cnlhusiasts dig for rocks in back-hoed trenches. Although the average person will dig from 150 to 200 pound~' of agates in a day, most of them -oun run approximately eight ounces in weight with a two inch diameter. Occasionally a ten or 15 pound stone is obtained, but a find like Gasser's is ; most unusual. Only one larger agate was ever taken from the field, a rock weighing 109 pounds dug two years ago. Accompanying the Gassers on their week-long expedition were Mr. and Mrs. Clarence Grunert of Shelton. Grunert scored with a 15 pound cornelian agate and another weighing 12 pounds, both dug approximately three feet ga from the location" of Gosser's huge prize Ronald and Myrtle Gosser are members of Shelton Rock and Mineral Society, and the big agate will be exhibited in the club's booth at the fair. Gosser plans to leave the stone intact except for the slabbing and polishing of one side. The Gossers, whose interest in rocks was instigated last October, dig agates all summer and spend the winter months fashioning their finds into jewelry. ling" Z v 0 II II and ~le for ng. retJil Save*9.29 to *15.67 each on the same blackwall tires that come on many '71 cars. the same tire that's Blackwall Reg.

They are the district's enrollment during the coming school year and whether or not the state raises the amount per square foot it will match. Grinnell was instructed by the board to ask the architect for the new high school complex to prepare his ideas on the football field, track, grandstands and fencing so he can discuss with the board at its August meeting the possibility of constructing these facilities before the main school complexis done. Limerick Has New Officers Everett E. Kissler of Tacoma is the new president of Lake Limerick Country Club, Inc. His election Saturday by the board of trusttes followed the club's annual membership meeting. Four trustees, including Kissler, were re-elected at the membership meeting. Five new trustees were elected. Retiring President Fred A. Roswold of Seattle is one of the five trustees who did not seek re-election. Anthony Paradise of Seattle was elected vice-president to succeed Kissler. Norman Schreck, also of Seattle, is the new secretary. Duane Damen of Bellevue was elected treasurer. A large turnout of owner-members elected Kissler, Leo "Doug" Redburn of Seattle, At Hill of Lake Limerick and Schreck trustees for three-year terms. Chosen for two-year terms on the board were Paradise, Frank Petoski of Spanaway, Floyd Jones of Lake Limerick and James Latimer of Shelton. Roy J. Brown of Lake Limerick was elected for a one-year term. Retiring trustees in addition to Roswold are George Deleau and George E. Olson of Seattle, Edward Moon of Snohomish and Duane "Jim" Ergen of Boulevard Park. Grinnell told the board this could be done since the state does not provide matching funds for these facilities so the district could go ahead with them on their own if they want to. The board voted to call for bids, to be opened at the August meeting, on fuel oil, bakery products and dairy products for the coming school year. The board accepted the resignations of Helen Huntley who is retiring as a special education teacher at Rogers School, and David Dickinson, history and psycology teacher at Garrett Heyns High School at the Washington Corrections Center. The board, on the recommendation of Grinnell, voted to hire Janet Miller and Katherine Foseide as elementary teachers. Both were on leave of absence the past school year. New teachers hired include Vicki Ownes, first grade; Calvin Waits, vocation auto mechanics at Garrett Heyns High School; Laurel Vice, vocational welding at Garrett Heyns; Johnny German, vocational drafting at Garrett Heyns and Court Lantz, chemistry and photography at Shelton High School. Grinnell told the board that most of the positions in the district were filled now, but, the exact number of teachers needed in the elementary program would depend on approval of federal funds for a couple of projects and the enrollment in the district when school starts.
