Dyson. nly Nat,re Provides Interesting By Virginia Allison LILLIV/AUP- There was some- hing about :.he eagle still-hunt- ing from a tree stump near Stet- son's, his telcscopm eyes alert for small creatures incautious enough to show themselves in the clear- rag: mice. shrews, chipmunks or garter snakes. The strangeness about him lay in the color of his plumage. He was a blaek eagle. As soon as possible we consulted the bird books ann found that he is known as the Black Eagle dur- ing the first year of his long life, while his plumage changes as the \\;₯ashingLon eagle, while in matur- ity he has become the familiar white-maded American Bald Ea- gle. City dwellers though we once were, few of us escape altogether the appeal of nature in some form. We learn to identify the birds by sight and song; to name the mush- rooms, rocks or ,wild flowers; while others investigate the ex- citing world of marine life, As t'or example teen-age Claudia ex- periencing her first summer on Hood Canal who went fishing and netted so curious an object she brought it over to exhibit. It prov- ed to be a sea-cucumber of the red variety to which a Kelp crab was clinging tenaciously. This non edible crab is so fierce a fighter it should be bandied with caution. We subdued him by sprinkling Ep- som salts in the pail of sea-water. School, has just completed the campus hours (?f study required for hi: Masters degree by Pacific L(I- theran College in Tacoma. He stayed with his parents in that city while taking the necessary courses: and slept nostalgically in the same room he occupied as a growing boy.

Unfortunately Mrs. Louis Schauffler injured a knee severely when land clearing for the work- shop was at its most strenuous time, and had to be taken to Shel- ton General Hospital for profes- sional care. THE L. K. WEBBS and Mrs. Allie Ahl drove to Dosewallips State Park Wednesday, July 10 to attend the Hoodsport church pic- nic. It is from this park that trails lead off in many directions into the Olympic Mountains. The Webb's son Wilfred, an en- gineer for Minish "Webb and As- socittes of Seattle, with his wife Jeri and their two sons are vaca- tioning at the Ahl homestead where he spent many happy years of his own childhood, vrith black- berries ripening Mrs. Ahl reflected it was her late husband, John, who long ago introduced Himalaya berries into North Mason County where they eagerly took root in the acid soil, These make excellent jelly. Our horticulturists should discover a method to make them thornless bushes. In spite ot meager sunshine Erle- son's gardens are a riot of gay colors. A pleasure they were hap- py to share with returning son Charles Diesen Jr.. and his wife Pat of Kirkland with their two children and with Howard Diesel] the son employed at Bremerton Navy Yard. Mrs. Frances Klemm has also been a recent house gamst.

Mr. and Mrs. John Acre. and red-haired .Tohn Jr.. of Lilliwanp left Monday for a leisurely sight- seeing trip that will take them through Spokane, Glacier Park and Calgary and other points east as fancy dictates. Mr. Gerkensmeyer of Lilliwaup Motel, says his wife continues to improve satisfactorily at home; but that her father, Jack Dwyer, is seriously ill in Shelton. MR. AND MRS. George Moake motored to Tacoma on Tuesday with George's three sisters from east of the Mississippi river, Lo show them our beautiful north- west scenery. They had their first view of ML. Rainier. admired the handsome capitol buildings and grounds in Olympia. and dined together at Steve's Gay 90s rest- aurant in Tacoma. Mrs. Frank Hambaugh, hospital- ized briefly in Olympia for surg- ery, is recovering rapidly, her on- ly regret apparently that she was forced to miss one meeting of the Wednesday Bridge Club while away. After paying our respects to Ming the 19-year-old Siamese cat belonging to Mr. and Mrs. Joseph Peterson nf Beacon Point we learned that their guests, Mr. and Mrs. Don Stalling of Saratoga, Calif.. had left the previous day. Mr. Stelling is an orchardist who raises oranges and avacados in the Santa Clara Valley where the two couples originally became acquain- ted. "Pete's" hobby is old furniture of fine craftsmanship; while Bet, ty Peterson tirelessly collects the best specmlens obtainable of our local sea shells. The only people we know in our area who actually built a house to accomodate expected company are the Bill Everett's of Longwood Beach. WRh a dozen or more friends and relatives coming to see them, some on overlapping dates. Bill began the project ear- ly in the spring and had it ready for the first arrivals. It is larger, more enduring and more comforta- ble than a tent; with plenty of head and elbow room and luggage space for four people. Set among bracken, the tallest of our ferns, its gabled roof nestles under low growing cedar boughs; lodging to entrance the guests for whom it was intended. These have included thus tar Mr. and Mrs. Jerry Wil- lis and four children from Seattle; John and Patricia Cochrane from Helena, Mont., with son and daughter Pat and Scott. Also Mrs. Fern Strandberg, Opale Everett's sister. The T. B. Orr's are moving this week into the new place they are completing next to the Oran Lees. It is surprising how many differ- ent results are achieved archi- tecturally in the fine homes now under construction on Hood Canal. No two are alike anywhere, it seems. We think that the lay of the land and the angle of the curve of the shoreline induces the variation and the originality noted in exteriors, and house plans many of which are designed largely by the owners. The regular bi-monLhly pinochle party was held at the Lilliwaup Community clubhouse July 12. There was enough mid-summer en- thusiasm for eight tables to get under way when the hands of the Seth Thomas wall clock pointed to eight.
