Picnic Set Veterans of World War 1 and auxiliary No. 1462 will meet for a noon potluck picnic at Mason Lake next Thursday. Students Honored On the Olympic College President's Honor List for the spnng quarter are Alvin Johnson and Edward WaSte, both of Shelton. ace A flyer of planes, a builder of boats and co-constructor of her home is Mace Wiss, whose husband is Retired Navy Commander Donald Wiss, a professional pilot. Born deep in the heart of Texas, Mace Wiss lived in many places during the 29 years of her husband's naval career, the last five years of which she was employed as a computer operator for the Army and Naval Air Station in Corpus Christi. Upon the retirement of Commander Wiss two years ago, they took a sabbatical flight to Alaska, returning through the Shelton area. They decided to make their home here, upon the very property on which Donald Wiss's father had been born. When Commander Wiss's grandparents arrived in this area to homestead, they were disembarked at Skookum Point. Later, after the birth of a son, it was discovered that they were living on the wrong portion of land and it was necessary for them to move to the correct homestead near Agate. Twenty years ago. Cmdr. and Mrs. Wiss bought the original site of the family home, strictly for sentimental reasons. "We had at that time no thought of living here," said Mrs. Wiss. But here they are. They drew up plans and had them approved by an architect. "We did this to keep ourselves out of trouble," Mace Wiss states. Through the basic structure and the roofing, Cmdr. and Mrs. Wiss worked along with professional builders. From there, on they have done all work themselves with a bit of help now and then when they have felt the need of professional advice. ui In the Naval Air Station Hobby Shop in Alameda, Cal. the fiberglass hull for the "Skookum Queen", the Wiss's 18 foot cabin cruiser, was molded; from that point onward, Mace and her husband created the boat with their own hands. "It is rather unorthodox," Mace confesses, "as we built it to our own design. It suits us perfectly." Flying non-stop from Bellingham to Sitka, Alaska and returning non-stop to Shelton on July 5, Cmdr. and Mrs. Wiss and their daughter, Teri, a recent graduate of Trinity University in San Antonio, vacationed for ten days in Alaska. At the very end of the very last day of fishing, Mace's line was the only one yet in the water, her hook baited with the very last herring. It was then that she caught her first salmon, a 50 pound King. Her prize, along with a mere 25-pounder and several smaller ones caught by her husband, were canned in a self-service cannery after their return.

"So many people seem to think that the red kidney bean is the true Mexican bean, and this is not so. It's the pinto bean." She serves her enchiladas with pinto beans, Mexican wild rice and a tossed green salad.

What does a mask do for the skin? A. A mask treatment stimulates circulation in the skin, thereby helping to carry away the impurities that cause oily or blemished skin. EFFECT OF FACE MASKS Q. How beneficial are face masks? A. Almost all face masks benefit the skin by stimulating surface blood circulation temporarily. Other than this one common benefit, however, face masks differ in their purposes and effects. Some help to cleanse the skin by sloughing off dead cells from the surface. Others are designed to firm and tighten the skin temporarily, thus helping to conceal tiny lines. Be sure that you purchase a face mask formulated to meet your particular need.

A chandelier and other wrought iron decorative lamps were brought from Mexico in their private plane, and various ornamental items have been collected in their travels. Her hobby was once photography, but when the family acquired their first plane in 1962 all other hobbies fell by the wayside. Mrs. Wiss, at first afraid of small planes, soon became enthusiastic. "We bought a Beech Bonanza," she states, "and it is considered the "Cadillac" of single engine planes." "It is my impression," she continued, "that the Beech planes are of a more professional quality than most other small ones." She obtained her private license in 1966. They now own a Beech Travel-Air, a twin engine plane, and Mace Wiss will soon have her multi-engine rating. new From 1847 ROGERS BROS. ii II The enchantment of that first moment when you know it's forever.., captured in a timeless repousse' design that creates an aura of romance in any setting.., yours in gleaming silverplate or elegant gold electroplate. 48-Piece Service for Eight as shown.
