Mrs. Virginia Allison has taken over the eorrespontl- eni"s duties from the Lilliwaup area. We commend Mrs. Vance for her many years of ervit.e. By Virginia Allison LILLI\\;VAUP ..... We along Hood Canal have |earned to dislike skin divers because of their disregard of private property rights, their wilful and wanton destruction of marine life and their generally ob- noxious manners. There seems to be a new breed of skin divers evolving, however, men who are nature lovers and who are endeavoring to overcome the odium now attaching to their fellow "sportsmen". The brothers Douglas and Lewis Jergens-of Vancouver. Wash. are among the latter, who understand the true meaning of sportsman- ship. They do underwater photo- graphy to preserve memories of what is "downunder" in our photo- genie channel. In return for priveleges extend- od during the last two summers. they gave a first showing of their color film at Triton Head Satur- day night: films shot between Buck Mountain log dump No. 2 and Fulton Creek. in 10 to 85 feet of water. Douglas Jerg3ns acquired his self assurance under water as a salvage diver for the U.S. Navy. His uflder water photography is a rapidly developing skill The bro- thers have encountered one ray only, a large bottom fish, William Beebe the oceanographer consid- ered fully as dangerous as the shark We were enthralled to see our sea-weed belt. ordinarily a limp, flat mass at ebb-tide, standing erect and swaying gracefully as shrubbery in a breeze; .while as- sorted sizes of fish meandered through it and marine animals from sea cucumbers" to anemonies hmked half hidden or decorated the scene with splashes of bright color. For contrast. Douglas plans to make winter films to prove his heory that seaweed loses its "fol- iage" seasonally, much of it dis- appearing alltogether; a eondition which should improve clarity of the salt water and reveal new as- poets of the sea-floor. This unique Ioeal film was viewed by a group of neighbors in north Mason Coun- ty. AMONG RETURNING travel- ors. Mrs. Virginia DeBard is back from a two month trip through Europe, on which she was accom- panied by her cousin. Mrs. Richard Perry of Seattle. Mrs. DeBard states "We left our hearts in Ire- land and Scotland". They crossed the Atlantic on the S S. France and taxied between European ci- ties by plane, the trip lasting frmn May 13th to the 18th of July, dining Pa, bich they encountered weather much the same as ours this summer. Mrs. I)eBard and Mrs. Perry visited art centers ev- erywhere they went. acquiring here and therc choice pieces of glass work figurines and plaques, of a size conveniently transported in luggage. They fell in love with the Isle of Capri and agreed that Copenhagen's reputation for the best food in Europe was justified. The retm'n trip was made from Shannon Airport via New York city to Sea-Tar. Now visiting Mrs. DeBard at Carroll's Point are her daughter and son-in-law. Mr. and Mrs. Wil- liam Dickson of Seattle, with granddaughter Laura and six month old John Christopher.
