She started with daTk- orn~ioned It~lls ~essed thern4h Indian costume, their straight dresses fashioned of felt or heavy cotton in buckskin colors and trimmed with beads. One doll is short haired, and the other wears long black braids. Beaded head bands and mocassins complete their attire. 'Tve had many chances to sell them," Mrs. Jones explains, "but 1 won't part with them. They are mine." Mrs. Jones has two sons, three grandsons and two grand-daughters for whom she makes dolls and basket-purses. Until four years ago, Mabel Jones was employed as a housekeeper by several Hood Canal homes. Now she devotes her time to her own interests, one of the greatest being the new Shaker Church near Mud Bay. Among her sewing projects have been sofa pillows for the Church's recent bazaar. Mabel Jones has always loved flowers and has always grown them, indoor and outdoor plants alike. Uvon moving to her present Shelton home approximately three years ago, the yard was bare. She hauled in rocks and top soil to build raised beds in which now flourish geraniums, nasturtiums, iris, roses and many other varieties of blooming plants. She grows lupines from seed, producing specimens with huge flower spikes in many shades of pink. Fuschia baskets ornament her porch. It might be said of Mabel Jones that her gardening efforts encompass a lot of territory. She makes baskets of many types, and she harvests throughout the area many of the materials used in her craft. Cedar bark is taken when the sap is running. Strips are peeled from the trees, starting at the THROUGHOUT THE YEAR Mabel Jones harvests the grasses and barks used in the weaving of her colorful baskets. bottom and tearing upward, s until the bark comes to a "V" and pulls loose.

N. 426-8568 Page 8- Shelton-Mason County Journal - Thursday, July 29, 1971 Roger Lawson ollege Roger Lawson, drummer with the band called Lynx, has completed his freshman year in the Olympic College in Bremerton, maintaining throughout both semesters a position on the honor roll. Lawson is the son of Mr. and Mrs. Verl Lawson of Shelton. He has a brother, Ken, who is bass guitarist with Lynx, the other two members of which are Randy Linder, lead guitar, and Mike Linder, rythm guitar. Music is a big thing with Roger Lawson. The band rehearses three times a week, and usually plays once or twice a week, and sometimes as many as three or four times. For the past seven months Lawson has appeared as drummer on the Country Jamboree, televised from 6 p.m. to 7 p.m. every Saturday on Channel t 3. He has here had the opportunity to meet and to perform with many recording artists. "In my spare time," says Roger, "I like to sit out in the yard and play my guitar." He also sings. Having played professionally for more than a year, Lawson has had ample opportunity to evaluate the behavior of young people. "I feel," he states, "that most of them are quieting down a little and beginning to think things through in a deeper way. Maybe they're just growing up." Roger Lawson studied art throughout his high school years, and as a Junior and a Senior painted sets for plays produced by the drama department. In his final high school year he received lig a scholarship from the Shelton Art Club. Commercial art is Lawson's major, and his course includes advertising, art history, English, speech and photography. He wishes to obtain the Association of Technical Arts degree in Olympic College, after which he would like to continue studies required to earn a degree in graphic arts. Photography has become a hobby with Roger Lawson within the last five months. He has a dark room in his home on Cole Road, and enjoys finishing his pictures. "I believe photography to be the most worth while thing I've learned in College," he says. Roger Lawson lives at home, driving back and forth to school. He has joined no clubs. "I'm attending strictly for the education," he declares. Born in Shelton on Jan. 26, 1952, Roger Lawson lived here until one year old, after which he resided in Missouri until he returned to the. Shelton area to enter the third grade. Favorite recreations are camping and hiking. "I like the water," he explains, "although I don't swim too well. I really enjoy just walking along the beach." Although Lawson anticipates a possible career in advertising or photography, he intends to continue with professional music. "I'm getting a lot out of college," Roger Lawson states, "I didn't try too hard in high school, but I am, now. Most of the students I meet seem to have the same attitude."
