!; PREVENT FOREST & RANGE FIRES SINCE 1940 KEEP WASHINGTON GREEN ASSOCIATION, INCORPORATED By DEE WlLLIAMSON More fun, more sun, and unfortunately more fires! Smokey and I visited Twanoh, Belfair and Camp Robbinswald this week. There were hundreds of people in each camp. Smokey and I were impressed with the enthusiasm of everyone, but we felt the parents thought we were talking only to the children. Smokey and I feel we need to reach parents as much or more than children. After all, who is driving and tossing cigarettes out the windows? And, I think we're safe in saying, more adults are building campfires and going camping than their children. Everyone needs to help on our fire prevention campaign. Even if you're 75, you aren't too old to memorize Smokey's ABC's of safety, or a verse from Smokey's song. If you've never heard or seen Smokey's theme song, pay careful attention as you read it now. "If you've ever seen the forest ! when a fire is running wild, and you love the things within it like a mother loves her child, then you know why Smokey tells you when he sees you passing through 'Remember... please be careful.., it's the least that you can do." This song may mean nothing at all to you. If it doesn't, visit a park close by, for example: Schafer State Park, BelfaSt and Twanoh State Parks, Cushman, and many others. Just watch the children run through the trees, or float down a forest stream on an inner tube. Watch the chipmunks scurry around between sleeping bags. Breathe the fresh air, and feel the enthusiasm of the people there. Then reread Smokey's song. It's been very dry lately. Dry lightning is threatening the forests in the high mountains. We can't control nature-caused fires, but we can try and control careless men and women. Please be cautious, make our forests a nice place to visit. By FRANCES RADTKE The latest mobile homes to arrive at Hidden Haven belong to Mrs. Ardyce Jensen, Mr. and Mrs. Frank McGuire and Mr. and Mrs. Edward Radtke. Life at the Haven is varied and interesting. Residents decorate extensively at Christmas time. Holiday trees line Poinsetta Drive, Mistletoe Lane and Holly Hill.

Often seen strolling about the park are Mrs. Ardyce New Decal 'ned The Keep Washington Green Association is introducing a new "We're Wild About Washington" decal for use during the 1971 fire season, according to KWG director Ed Loners. Loners said 10,000 of the new vinly decals have already been distributed, primarily for use on cars and campers, in hopes of creating awareness of fire danger in the state before the forests and range lands become critically dry. The new three color decals are available to residents and visitors of Washington by sending a self-addressed envelope to the Association at Anderson Hall, University of Washington, Seattle, 98105.

After the meal Mrs. Radtke furnished piano music for dancing and listening. The bookmobile which calls every other week arrived Tuesday in ninety degree heat. It was met by Mrs. Gladys White with a cool drink of fruit juice for Lloyd Hildinger, driver and Mrs. Doris Whitmarsh, librarian. Chilled Bing cherries were brought by Mrs. Frances Radtke and the bookmobile staff was invited to sit a few moments in the breeze at Mrs. Alma Heath's picnic table. Since the bookmobile was parked close to her home, Mrs. Radtke dashed off a tune or two on her organ for their amusement. Also present were Mrs. Caroline Pollock, Mrs. Dorthee Gregg and Brian. The bookmobile sign "No Silence" was observed. e in By MORLEY KRAMER The Shelton Public Library has a good selection of light reading to help add to your enjoyment of your leisure hours in the summer sun.

Mrs. Cathy Caudil, of Shelton, Alcohol Rule ' ' shi New rules limited the use of alcohol and prohibiting glass and metal containers on swimming beaches will be enforced in Washington State Parks beginning Monday, August 9. The 1971 Legislature removed State Parks from the category of "public places" where State Law prohibited the Opening and consumption of alcoholic beverages. As a result, midnight, August 8, will end the last legally "dry" day in State Parks. To provide for suitable regulation of alcohol use when it becomes permissible in the parks for the first time in the state's history, the Washington State Parks and Recreation Commission, July 19, approved rules to become additions to chapter 352-32 of the Washington Administrative Code, as follows: "Opening or consuming any alcoholic beverages in any state Robert Torheim Art Buchwald, who should know, e By JANET FISK Setting a schedule of public meetings on the Zoning Ordinance, consideration of proposed standards for fire protection in new subdivisions, approval of a replat at Kamilche, and discussion of an unadvertised plat of Cushman Lake 15 were features of the regular meeting last Wednesday of the Mason County Planning Commission. Public meetings were proposed for September 20 in Belfair; for September 27 at the Hood Canal Junior High and for October 5 in Matlock, so that residents of those areas can meet with the Planning Commission to discuss the ordinance. Copies of the Ordinance can be obtained in BelfaSt at the Huckleberry Herald office and at the Belfair Library. The Commission decided that minimum standards for fire protection should be part of the subdivision ordinance, with each fire protection district invited to indicate special provisions that might be advisable in their districts. Hydrants no more than 700 feet apart, a flow of 500 gallons per minute for two hours, and standard hose outlets were discussed. After suggestions for rewording are incorporated in a new draft, the commission will consider this again. The replat of Kamilche was approved after a lengthy discussion as to the status of this development under the Shorelands Protection Act. The commission voted to approve the replat for in their view it is an upgrading of an old plat containing 2500 foot lots, and therefore comes under the intent of the Shorelands Protection Act. brought baby Tina Marie for an overnight visit with her grandmother, Mrs. Grace Petty. Mr. and Mrs. Richard Schauffler accompanied their two daughters, Mrs. Doris Kaare, of Poulsbo and Mrs. Roberta Hubband and two boys, of Bellevue, on a trip to LaPush.

Establishment. One is that when you attack the Establishment in the United States, it immediately makes you a member. "Ooops! or Life's Awful Moments" By Art Linkletter is a funny, down-to-earth sampling of those unexpected situations we all suffer and somehow manage to survive. "Quiet, Yelled Mrs. Rabbit" by Hilda Cole Espy tells about her life with four daughters and one son. Mrs. Epsy highlights occasions and phases of growing-up that are bell-fingers in every family. "The Fully Processed Cheese" is a wide ranging and free swinging collection by humorist Norman Ward who has the ability to look at life completely askew: for example, are you sure midgets are not regular sized and you're the giant?

After 18 months of operation, the state's water right claims registration program is maintaining a slow but steady flow. As of July 1, the Department of Ecology has received 7,000 registration forms from the public. The total received since the Department began sending out registration forms in January, 1970, indicates the pace will pick up. William Miller, registration chief, estimates some 250,000 claims will be filed before the June 30, 1974 deadline. The big push is expected in early 1972. About 1.2 million reminders to file water right claims will be included in the annual county tax statement mailings. In order to prevent a log jam of claim forms and to provide better service, the Department is urging residents to file as soon as possible. The forms are available in all the county auditor offices in eastern Washington. The state watermasters in eastern Washington also have the forms available. Western Washington residents can obtain the forms by writing to: Department of Ecology Water Right Claims Section P.O. Box 829 Olympia, Wash. 98504 A water right claim is a claim by an individual to the use of a quantity of water under rights previously unrecorded with the state.

Fair issued by the Department of Ecology or its predecessor agencies. 4. Departmental regulations August 2 adopted for implementation of the Act require registration of all rights to beneficial use of water. Exceptions are: a. Stock watering fights for stock drinking directly from a stream on riparian grazing land. b. Use of water for swimming, boating, fishing, etc. 5. The key test of whether registration is required is to determine if water is actually being artificially diverted and beneficially used. For example, owners of cattle going to a spring or stream to drink and lake property owners using the water for fishing and boating would not have to file a claim. booth commerCl displays Fair, to The on a first basis, ac!

It may be a cleaning compound that's taken by mouth -- a "wrong way" use; or a helpful medicine that's taken in too large a quantity -- a "wrong amount" use. Because children are curious they're particularly susceptible to both kinds of poisoning. More than 90 per cent of all poisoning accidents Involve children. A good rule for all substances that may become poisons: Keep out of the reach of children. Another good rule: Know what to do In case of poisoning. Here your pharmacist can help. Because emergency treatment varies depending upon the substance that caused the poisoning, you need to know what to do In each case. Your pharmacist can tell you and provide you with a list of Instructions. He also can recommend antidotes and emetics that you should have on hand -- In case. And keep things away from tots.
