Oounty Free Of Traffic Deaths During June lV[otorists in Mason Connty drew -praise' today from rash!ngton State Patrol Chief Roy Betlaeh. He said Mason was one of 17 counties which did not list a single traffic death during the month of June. Statcwide Betlaeh said 68 perseus died in highway mishaps during the month, 21 more than were killed in June. 1962. "Mason County drivers are to be commended for their fine June reEord," Betlaeh said. "Their ex- ample of safe, responsible driving is sorely needed at this time when our traffic death rate is mount- ing steadily." According to Washington State Safety Council figures, the Coun- ty's death-free record in June leaves the number killed during the first half of 1963 standing at four. TlYat compares with two deaths during thc first six months of last year. The June record of 68 dead made it one of the worst for that month in recent years. Forty-sev- en persons died on tbe streets and highways of the state during June last year. In 1961, the toll was 31, and in 1960 it was 35. At the end of the first six months of this year the number killed in traf- fic ha reached 293, fourteen more than died during the first half of 1962 which ranked as the sec- ond worst in the state's history, NELL BERG owner-operator MARILYN ARNOLD, operator Come In or Call 426-8643 Humber Of Bachelors In County Is High NE\\;V YORK (Special) Cal- ling all single women. Now hear this. Mason County is loaded with sitgle men. The surplus of bachelors is such Htat there are 146 single men locally for every 100 single wo- men. The findings are based on the latest marital fignres, gathered from all parts of the country by he Department of Commerce. The reports indicate that the male-fe- male ratio varies considerably from region to region. THEY SItOIV that the number of single men and boys in Mason County over the age of 14 am- cunts to 3.160. while the number of single women anff girls in that age bracket is only 2.158. These figures do not include men and Xvolnen who have been div- orce,i or widowed. The ratio of single men to single women, 146 to I00, is higher than .it is in many areas of the coun- try. The average is 124 to 100 in the: United States. The news that the county is a gooa manhunting preserve seems to have gotten around. The mar- riage rate locally, after a iern- porary hill, appears to be on the rise. The figures show that 70.8 per- cent of the men and women of marriageable age in Mason Coun- ty are now married. TIlE TIIEND toward early mar- riages, which started about 25 years ago, is now in full swing. Teen-Age marriages have become comntonplace, wilh nearly half .the girls taking their wws before they are 20. The majority of them be- come brides at 18. For men, also, the average age at first marriage keeps dropping. It is now around 22. In many cases, the young new- lyweds go on with their educa- tion. aided by financial assists from theh" parents. Often, the bride quits school and takes a job while her spouse remains to get his diploma or college degree. Tie report also notes the num- ber of Mason County residents who were formerly married. Of the men, 451 are listed as widowed and 481 divorced and. of the women, 1,734 widowed and 45 divorced. 00FORESTS Have you ever been to a "Smo- key the Bear" dinner? Most likely your answer will be no, unless, ot course, you've been to Camp Bish- op in the past two years. This Ab- erdeen YMCA camp located on Lost Lake is certainly aware ot the importance of fire prevention and to make doubly . sure the youngsters are imbued with the spirit of Keep Washington Green. the directors have instituted this unique celebration in honor ot "Smokey's" significance, Last Thursday I witnessed my first "Smokey Bear" dinner. About 120 girls romped into the Hal Da- vis Lodge and noticed their dining room had been transformed---smalL inflated Smokey Bears were hang- ing like Christmas decorations from the ceiling and the walls ot the lodge displayed posters with various keep green messages. The tables -were. no. verlooked for they carried out the day's theme with their plaEemats. Smokey song sheets, booklets and Smokey comic books all stressing the idea of protecting our forests.

The message is similar to both groups, but somehow the words behind it ncver grow old--they are always the constant reminders which we hope in the long run will help decrease needless forest fires. Our hats are off to the direc- tors of Camp Bishop, Mrs. Aug- ust Cache- and Jack Bastin, no only for the work their doing with the youth in our state, but also for contributing their thne ann their idea of a "Smokey Bear" dinner to the benefit of Keeping' Washington Green. camp a girl stared at me cur- iously and then asked. "Is Smokey the Bear really coming tonight?" It made me feel like a parent tell- ing their child the truth about Santa Claus when I told the girt that Smokey lives in a zoo in Washington D.C. and since couldWt make it he sent me as his helper. I found the apprehension unwarranted because the girts were anxious to contribute prevention rules to their pseudo--. Smokey when I asked them about ways to avoid carelessness in our forests. Since most of the girls are between the ages o nine and fit'- teen I emcouraged|them to join the Washington Green Guard as- sociation (age limit 8-16) in order to learn more about their parti- cipation as junior citizens eliminating man-caused fires.
