Dwindling attendance in recent years threatens to cancel one of the unique and we think very de- ,sqreable events in our community -- the Mason County pioneer picnic. We hope this doesn't happen, as this gathering of the men and women who populated, governed and shaped the early history of our little patch of the universe is an en- joyable change of pace in the lives of those who were in- volved as well as their descendants, friends and neighbors. If there is a misconception in the public mind that this event is limited strictly to those who can truly claim the title of pioneer, let it be dispelled here and now, for that is not the case. The gathering is open to all, young and old, who are interested in mingling with those who are the early- day residents. There are precious few of the latter re- maining and the list grows thinner each year. So let's have a big turnout for this 1964 pioneer picnic next Sunday, and preserve it as an annual event in our community. GREAT WORK--BUT IS THIS THE WAY? You people are the greatest! GORGEOUS, AREN'T THEY -- Manager Mike Davis, Alex Gouley, Rick Miller and Albert Gouley gather around the two handsome trophies their Skokomish baseball team won at the annual Taholah Days 4th of July baseball tournament. Skokomish won both the championship and the sportsmanship trophies, shown here resting on the hood of Davis' car. In his role as team manager Davis said: "I'd like to take this opportunity to thank every player on the team for putting out Paul's Priceless Pigeons BELFAIR -- Paul Bigley's pig- eons are not for pot pies. "A Belgian owner once tin'ned down $2,000 for the grandfather of some of my birds," Bigley snorted, indignant at the very thought of putting his pets in pastry. Patti's birds are racing pig- cons. Maybe you and I couldn't tell them from the sidewalk doves that clutter up cornices, but Paul can. We sat one evening in the back yard of his Hood Canal home, waiting for his birds to complete a 350-mile race from Roseburg, Ore. Half a dozen flashed in from the south and circled the cote. "THREE OF TIIOSE are mine," Paul said. They looked to me like six blue birds scared off a park statue. Bigley ran toward the cote, rattling a can of grain. Three birds landed and scooted inside. Paul slipped off the leg bands. st, roped them in a time clock and returned wearing the grin of a We mean you who jumped so quickly to the rescue of man whose horse has just won the the swim classes with your generous donations, and over- Kentucky Derby subscribed the emergency fund to extend the classes another "Pigeon racing in Europe is like horse racing," he said. "Big tWO weeks, prizes, big bets. Here it's just his best effort to make winning the Taholah tourna- ment possible. There was no stopping Skok,omish when the players produced their finest pitching, fielding and above all their power hitting was simply tremendous to make it possible.

Witll no more training they work up to 300-milers before the season ends in September. Old birds start with 100-milers in the .~pring and advance to the 600s which climax their season. Bigley is one of the most con- sistent winners among the 105 pig. eon racers who make up the Puget Sound area's concourse of clubs. But I have to nominate Dick Lar- son of Seattle, (13652-23rd S.) a commercial pilot, for the all- around championship. Dick brought home a clutch of eggs from Germany on one of his jet journeys. That has to be the youngest, highest, fari:hest and fastest pigeon flight in history.

Smith has posted 18-hole cards of 75, 75 and 80, less his 8-stroke handicap. This competition, one of the ]9th Hole Club's activities, is played at 100 percent handicap. Larson's three cards read 87, 80 and 76, less his 12-stroke handi- cap. Smith and Larson hold a size- able advantage over the remain- ing entrants with 54-hole scores, i although 14 others have only played 36 holes and some of them could, with good rounds, rise into contending positions.

The decision extended Skoko- mish's season record to 8-5. A trio of Valley swingers Jim Tobin, Rick Miller and Albert Gou- Icy, slammed out three hits each, including doubles by Tobin and Gouley, to pace the win. OAKSVILLE controlled leads of 1-0 after one inning, 5-2 after: five and 6-5 after six, but Skoko- mish clinched the victory with two runs in the top of the eighth and a single insurance tally in the ninth frame. Skokomish's big inning was the sixth, when it tied the count at 5-5 with three rams on singles by Tobin and Alex Gouley and four Oaksville errors. The .winners had plated twice in the third on a base on balls to Tobin and singles by Dick Adams, Rick Miller and Albert Gouley. RICK, WHO IIAD singled to left, and Ron Peterson, who had walked, plated in the eighth. Oth- er hits in the inning were one- basers by Tobin and AI Gouley and a double by Adams.

They're there but doggone few anglers are after 'em, which is a crazy state of affairs, one we doubt will continue long. Reports say blackmouth up to 24 pounds are boiling around in the canal off Hoodsport and be- tween Union and Bald Point.

Beaulaurier, ~ssistant to the pres- ident in Financial Development, said this week. The late Mr. Lewis of Shelton was a graduate of Whitman in i the class of 1912. He majored in! English and political science, grad uating cure laude, and later be- came a prominent Puget Sound area attorney. He was Shelton City attorney and Simpson Logg- ing Co. attorney for many years while conducting his own private law practice here for over 40 years. Whitman inlends te use the pro. ceeds of'the fmad for political ed- ucation seminars, conferellces and other related pro'poses, Beaulan- rier said. The Lewis family intends to add to the f,,nd in the future, he noted, at which time it may be used to support the appearance of a visiting professor in the po- htical science field. ]2.1 ft. ,IOIlIE CAR %VASll The Jobies will hold a car wash 3.7 ft.

Fishing is good in all smaller streams with rainbow about 10 inches being caught. Lack of adequate sun- shine has curtailed ripening of wild blackberries at higher ele- vations. Currently fire danger is low. Fawns are numerous on thc Dennie Ahl Road system. Quite a nmnber of elk have been seen.

Construction Cane~ Gym Is De/ayed Plans to have the new gymnas- ium at Hood Canal Junior High School ready to use this fall have been delayed, John Pill, superin- tendent of the dish, c* said this week. Pill said the plans were now in the hands of the State Fire Marshall in Olympia awaiting ap- proval. Approval from the district health office must follow the fire marshall's approval, he said. Bids will be asked on the new facility when these approvals have been received, Pill said. Completion of plans by the ar- chitect were delayed by personnel problems in the architect's office Pill said. Pill said the lack of the new building when school starts would create some space problems. The district has its complete staff of teachers for the coming year, with all faculty members from last year returning and one additional teacher hired, Pill said. 131h Inning Homer Ends Stock's Long Victory Slab Skein Wes Stock's bid for his 13th consecutive major league pitching victory fell afoul an extra-inning home run last Sunday, It happened at Chicago, where Kansas City scored a run in the top of the 13th inning to put Stock on the brink of his 13th successive success (he hadn't been charged with a defeat since July of 1962). ..... In the bo-ttom-- laalf,--however, Chicago's first batter reached base, then Gary Peters was in- serted as a pinch-hitter. Peters twice fouled off attempts to bunt the ruhner along, then smashed one of Stock's pitches over the rightfiel~ fence to win the game, 3-Stock2 had entered the game in the 10th, giving up four hits, one walk and getting one strikeout in his three plus innings of relief. The former Shelton high school baseball luminary had won his 12th victory since 1962 last Wed- nesday when the Athletics defeat- ed Cleaveland, 5-3. He pitched 3 1/3 scoreless innings during which he yielded only two hits, struckout six and g~ve no walks. Stock's re6ord fro: '19~4~ tsmow 4-1 and his overall major league mark sider going up in 1961 is 21-5. He has pitched entirely as a relief hurler. 7 in Werm.tchee will determine succcssfui applicants. MT. BY TWILIGHT 6 Brinnon Mt.
