The action was taken after a delegation hm the area appeared to protest the granting of the per- mit. TRIE APPLICANT, W. A. Nor- ris, Shelton, said a six-foot wood- en fence would be placed around the area used for dismanteting the cars to hide it from view. The residents of the area said they did not believe that a six- foot fence would hide the view from places higher up, particu, larly from Highway 101. and would be an eyesore on the ap- proach to the city. The commissloners first voted to hold up action on granting the permit, and, later after confer- ing with the prosecuting attorney, 'voted to refer it to the planning commission for study. A DELEGATION of residents from Binnsqoad appdared to ask if the comnnssion could have something done to the road to re- move the temptation to teenagers to use it as a "thrill" ride be- cause of the shar dips. The plat of an&rea around Mis- sion Creek was approved after agreement that some lots which require filling muld not be sold until they are filled. Edward B. Andrews, Olympia Real Estate man, was liired to ap- praise property the county is ac quiring for improvement of the North Shore Road along Hood Ca- nal.

There are .five boys enrolled hoard general wage increase ot now, with room for one more. The group's working hours are frnm 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. each day. The telephone number at the bui.!d* ing at the airport is 426-6S89. The program is being suppo.-Led by the "Mason County Chapter o: the Association for Retarded Chil- dren. THE EXCEPTIONAL Foresters idea was sLarted several years ago with plans for a residencetype op- eration for the boys who would be eligible. Problems many finan- oial. delayed the start of the op- eration until now. The start which has been made is not. nearly as extensive as the Sawmill Workers are submitting' the agreement to their Simpson- employed members for ratifica- tion. It is the first major agree- sent in the industry this year. WHILE NEGOTIATIONS did did reach agreement on all major issues, release of the details is pending notification to Simpson employees.

Something pew in fire fighthg has been adde.d to the equipment at the ShalLoP DiStrict Headquar- ters of the Department of Natural Resources at the Shorten Airport. The district here received last week a pumper txuck which had been modified to use a chemical fire retardant as well as straight water. The retardant, calh'd "algiW', mixes with water to form a jell which sticks to trees, brush or other material which might pro- vide fuel for a fire. The truck received hero is one of 16 which the Department of Natural teseurces purchased and has been working on for about a year to convert 1L to uc i lie chemical. The trucks were pump- ors before their conversion. The SheILon district expected to receive a secoml truck ill a short lime, replacing two of the pulnpers which }lve bcen in us.
