WORLD FACES TWO COURSES AS w AR RESULT,SAYS£AENA Imperialism 0r World—Wide Coop- eration To Come Out Of Con- flict, Thinks Mayor Expressing his opinion that the, United Statcs'is facing one of' two courses as a. result of the present war. imperialism on the one hand or World-Wide. coopera- tion on the other, Mayor Harry P. Cain of Tacoma spoke before an interested gathering at the Shelton Kiwanis club today. “The world and our own coun- try are changing every day,” May- or Cain, said, “and no one can foretell just what will come after the war is over, but of the courses which seem to lie before us, I feel that the field of cooperation and unity among all the nations of the world seems to hold out the most hope for Security and peace.” Mayor Cain, who spent some time. in Germany during the middle 1930's, spoke of the tre- mendous enthusiasm for Hitler in that country. Hitler is not re- garded as an ordinary mortal, Cain said. but as a god, as the Leader Who will return Germany to her rightful place in the sun. It is this enthusiasm which makes Germany so powerful and danger- ous at the present time. The mayor also spoke of a re- cent trip to Washington, D.

LVu—NO. 62 JULY WEAll-lfii Em Alli Bill 9 Shelton, Grapcview, Luke Cush- man All Register Tempor- ature Readings of Over l 100 Degrees In July Only one other .July was over drier than that which ended last Thursday. and none was ever hot- records kept by Weather Closer:- er Bernhard VViniccki. With its three temperatures of 104, 1021/15, and 101, this past July shattered all existing heat rec- ords for all months, and its 0.19 inch rainfall total was second only to the July of 1937, when only 0.02 inches of rain was recorded on Rayonier weather instruments, VViniecki reports. The net result of the rain Sit~ ‘uation is that 1941 is now well behind the record dry year of 1938, for according to Winiccki‘s records, only 22.36 inches of pre- cipitation has fallen so far this year While the first seven months of 1938 had a total of 26.22 in- ches. It is going to take con- siderable raining during the last two or three months of the year. when by far the greater portion of our rain falls, to keep 1941 from being the driest this area of weather recording here. Other weather statistics for this past July, as reported by Wi- niecki, show a minimum tempexx ature reading of 43 degrees on the 28th and 3lst, the record- breaking maximum of 104 degrees on the 15th. 20 days of clear skies, six days of partly cloudy skies, and five of cloudy skies. , The month was marked by nu- merous and extensive electrical and thunder storms, some of which did considerable damage to. power lines, hindered radio re-l ception and communication lines, and started scores of forest fires throughout the state, over 30 in Mason County alone. GRAPEVIEW FINDS JULY HOT AND DRY, ALSO V >_ Two temperature readings of " 101 and 102 degrees taken on the 15th and 16th days of last month broke all heat records at Grape- rcported to the Journal yesterday. It was likewise a dry month, with only 0.13 inches of rain be- ing recorded, 0.11 of that on the 18th. Heavy hail fell for about a minute at 7:30 p. m. on the 16th during a violent electrical storm during which several trees REflllRllS SET; tcr, say Rayonicr Weather bureau' were struck by lightning, one falling on a main powerline and putting out the lights for several hours, Weatherman Eckert re- ported, while at the end of the month a thick smoke pall ob- scured the sky. Eckert listed 19 days of month as clear, 11 as cloudy, and one as cloudy. the partly LAKE CUSHMAN HAD THREE 100 READINGS Three temperature readings of 100 degrees or more were reg— istered at the weather station at the Lake Cushman power plant during July, Frank Morrison re— ported to The Journal yesterday. The highest was 104-degree reading on the 16th, flanked the prevxous day by one of 102 de- grees and the following day by one of an even 100 degrees. Lake Cushman evidently was thadriest spot in Mason County during the month, too, for only and the tremendous confusion he found there. He pictured the cap- itol as a beehive of activity, which has not yet really found out hOW to work the long hours needed to bring the nation into full pro- duction. Plate X-3200 TO Belfair Autoist To G. D. Herrick of Belfair goes the “honor” of possessing 11' cense plates X—3200, marking an- other milestone in the record be- ing set this year in the sale of automobile licenses in Mason County. I Mr. Herrick obtained the first set of plates bearing the 3200 numerals ever issued in the coun- ty yesterday when he transferred histitle from Wyoming to .Wash- ington. Mason County has had t0 1‘6‘ order twice already this year to keep up with the demand for car licenses, now has on hand , plates numbering upvto an includ- ’ ing 3300. ‘ .Legion Delegates _ Get Instructlons Final instructions Will be given delegates to represent Fred 3- W1“ vell American Legion post .at the annual department conventlon at Yakima later this month at to- night’s post meeting, Commander John Eliason reminded members today.

THREE SCHOOIS“ OF COUNTY GET FINANCIAL HELP Belfair, Lower Skokomish,.Har- stine Benefitted by Spemal Federal, State Funds S p e c i a 1 financial assistance from state and federal funds was obtained last week for three Ma- son County school districts thru applications made by County School Supt. J. E. Martin, and one of the three may get even further help. , Belfair gained th 0 biggest chunk of coin when its applica— tion for $3600 to pay the minimum salary'wage of three extra teach— ers the district was forced to hire last year due to the huge increase in enrollment resulting from Bremerton defense work, and. $2,- 'and Banff and Castle Mountain One Lunch Coming Up——by the Carload By BILL DICKIE Journal News Editor With beautiful mountains} around us right here like the Olympics it seems strange that a couple of Sheltonians like. us (the missus and myself) would go traipsing off on a 2000-mile trip to see more mountains on our vacation, but we’d heard about the beauty of the Canadian Rockies With their Lake Louise and Kickirig Horse Canyon and others. so we decided we’d go see if the “grass” actually is green- er on the other side of the fence. It may seem like sabotage com- ing from a couple of Olympic Peninsula fans, but that “grass” did look a shade or so greener at that; I’ll have to confess. ,mrybe. it’s , become that .lieauty- is” of a different t'y'pe' of mountain. 000 for transportation expendi- tures was approved by the state Education Department, the money to come from the State Grant-lla— Aid fund created by the last» leg- islature. ,j' ‘ Belfair may also be able to get help from the federal fund cre- ated by Congress to assist school districts in defense areas, Supt. Martin said, and for that reason the state funds approved last week are being temporarily held up for possible use as matching money for the federal funds, if granted. However, even if the latter are not forthcoming, Bel- fair will receive the $5,600 in state money, Supt. Martin said. Lower Skokomish and Harstine Island were the other two districts to benefit from the special fin- ancial assistance. Lower Skokom- ,ish was granted a total of $3,010 from the federal Indian School Fund, of which $2200 is for special aid for Indian students of the school and $810 for hot lunch programs. Harstine Island was granted a total of $551 from the state grant-in-aid fund, of which $301 is to be applied on teacher salary to make up the minimum salary required by law, and $250 for transportation needs. Funeral For Mrs. Bingham Friday Funeral services for Mrs. Ted daughter of Mr. and Mrs. James Watson, who died in Seattle last week, will be held from Witsiers Chapel next Friday afternoon at two o’clock, the fam- ily announced yesterday. The last rites were delayed un— til the arrival of Mrs. Bingham’s husband from Kodiak, Alaska. 4-H .PHEASANTS 378 BIRDS BRING $283.50 4-H PHEASANTS RELEASED Three hundred seventy-eight Chinese pheasants raised by 4-H Club members were released yes- terday by Game Protector Paul Hughey, reports County Agent Clinton Okerstrom. This will bring to 18 club members a gross income of $283.50. paid by the State Game Department on a basis of 75 cents for each bird released, ,. , The percentage of birds reared this year is 12% below that of last year‘s 50%, or 38% for this year. A much poorer hatch of the eggs as well as wet weather shortly after the chicks did hatch accounts for this decrease. Most of the members did a good job in rearing most of the chicks that hatched. In general, however, the birds were probably not as large as in previous years. It appears that the $5.00 prize offered by Herbert G. Angle to the club having thehighest per cent of birds goes to the Skoko- mish Pheasant club, with a record of 39.4%. The Deckerville club, however, gave them a. close run with 36.7%. scenery than We find in the Olympics, but those Canadian Rockies on the whole took our breath away with their rugged- ness and massiveness.‘ Great pro~ jections of solid rock thrust. sheer sides ten thousand feet toward the sky, looking absolutely inac- cessible from the highway we drove along. Perhaps they could‘ be climbed, but they didn’t look it and I’d hate to face the dizzy ascent one would find trying to make the climb. Rockies Accessible Another thing that makes the Canadian Rockies impressive to an Olympic Peninsula resident is the way they‘ve been opened up to public access. Here we merely skirt the edge of the Olympics. hardly getting into even the foot- hills along the highway, but in the Rockies the highways take you through the very heart of the range and you get a first hand View of the peaks and can- yons and lakes and rivers and waterfalls. That’s why We should push through the proposed trans- Olympic highway as quickly as possible. .Those are good roads, too,l through the Canadian Rockies, although I can’t honestly include all Canadian roads in that cate- gory. We traveled some 300 miles of gravel and dust roads from National Park that I don’t care if I never see again—in their pres- ent condition—but once we hit the parks the highways were as fine as any of our American park roads. , And another thing I can com‘ pliment the Canadians highly upon is their attention to safety through signs.

SWIM ELASS OVER;- FUND lille SHORT Rain: Attendance Lower Than Past Years Amidst pelting raindrops which forced shortening of the carnival program, the 12th annual swim- ming and life saving classes came to their conclusion Sunday at Maple Beach. The rain washed out the sched- uled presentation of certificates earned by the students in the var- ious classes, but they may be ob- tained at the men’s departmentf at the L. M. store. The list of award winners has not yet been compiled by John Replinger, Red Cross Water safety ‘ chairman, but will be available for publication in Thursday's Jour- nal. The. list is somewhat smaller than in previous years because of: stiffer requirements in some of the courses under new Red Cross regulations, and also due to small- er attendance at the classes this year due to poor weather, in- terruption of the class schedule on one occasion, and to a change made in the schedule on another occasion, Red Cross Chairman Myron Lund, one of the class in- structors, said last night. In the meantime, the transpor- tation fund for the classes is short of its goal. To date only $22 has been donated to the fund, while at least $40 is needed to cover all transportation costs at- tendant with operation of the classes. Donors who have not been ac- knowledged so far include E. E. Brewer, E. 'G. Rauschert, and H. E. Lakeburg, each $1; Harold El- lis, 50 cents: and Robert Rimmer and Charles Wright, each 25 cents. Previously acknowledged was a total of $18. Donations may be left at «The Journal office or the men‘s de- partment at the L. M. SCCOnd Attempt Due PM U. S.

Bloom 2nd Time At Phillips Home Comes now R. R. Phillips, Peninsular Railway Shop work— man, with two contributions to the horticultural oddity depart- ment. 0f foremost oddity is the sec- ond blossoming of the season for a Montmorancy pie'cherry tree in his yard on South Seventh street. The ten-year-old tree has already produced a crop of cherries which Mr. Phillips es- timated at 200 pounds this spring. If the summer weather lasts long enough he’s hoping to get a second crop. It is the first time the tree has produc— ed a second crop of blossoms and County Agent Clinton Ok- erstrom reports such an occur- rence is a rarity in the horti- cultural world, particularly in cherries. Then the second Phillips con- tribution is an extra large and extra toothsome looking Pacific Gold peach which Mr. Phillips brought in from one of his .peach trees. This peach happen- ed to pick itself as its weight caused it to loosen itself from its grip on the branch. It measures 13 inches around and weighs eleven ounces. “But I have others bigger than that still on the tree and I’ll bring one in when they are ready to pick,” Mr. Phillips promised. ARMY T0 BOLSTER ‘ COUNUTY BRIDGES Permission Granted by Commis- sioners To Strengthen Spans In Area Maneuvers Held Certain bridges on Mason Coun- ty roads lying Within the area in which the big Army maneuvers will be held this month will be. strengthened by Army engineers at no cost to the county as the result of permission granted by the board of county commission- ers yesterday to the Army to go ahead with such work. A letter received by from Major Taylor, president of the Rents oard, 9th Field Ar- requesting such permis- sion was given immediate approv-a al by the board. The Army man- euvers are scheduled to get under way August 15 With Southwest- ern Mason County lying Within the zone of action. Approval of 'the State High- way Department of the county's proposed oiling of three miles of the North Shore Road at a cost of $3000 and of 1.5 miles of the Allyn Road at a cost of $1500 was received by the board yesterday. A resolution from MasonCoun- ty Pomona Grange objecting to construction of a log ferry for the Harstine Island run and rec- ommending a scow type ferry was received and filed by the board. The board approved vacation of a portion of Cushman Avenue in Hoodsport when no objections were raised at the public hear— ing yesterday on a petition sub- mitted some weeks ago by H. E. Lockwood et a1 requesting the vacation. The board also approved the proposed plat of Clifton Beach Tracts Division No. 3 (a replat of Clifton Beach Tracts No. 1) when no objectors appeared at the public hearing. the board State Purchases Hatchery Ground Deeds were placed on record State of Washington some 24 acres of lands in the Upper Skokomish valley. closing the deal for site for the new state trout fish hat- chery.

McConkey Pharmacy Has Bargain Carnival Offering many interesting items to customers, McConkey Phar- macy will conduct a. summertime Bargain Carnival this week. A ‘ Two Appointments Made By Com- missioner Brodie But Main Organizational Details Again Postponed Again postponing its main or- ganizational details because of insufficient p u b l i c attendance, some progress was made last night toward molding the Mason County unit of the National De- fense Council into being at a meeting at the courthouse when Defense Commissioner Doane Bro- die appointed Dean Carmen as head of the auxiliary fire fighting unit and Mrs. Virginia Lund as head of the motor corps unit. Another meeting was set for next Monday night at the court- ,house at eight o'clock and Com- missioner Brodie issued a fervent appeal for far greater interest from the public than has been shown so far in an organization which could be the agent for sav- ing the homes and lives of hun- dreds of persons in this area in case war should come to America. Must Be Prepared Commissioner Brodie pointed out to the gathering last night the functioning of a home de- fense organization such as this one aims to be must be perfected before the emergency arrives, as it cannot be effective afterward without previous practice. “We must learn how to fight fire created by bombs, how to evacuate people from an area un- der bombardment, how to help the injured and wounded, how to make use of our communications and hoW to create substitutes for damaged and destroyed communi- cations now, not after the emer- gency has arisen,” he pointed out. “We need 40 or 50 men in the auxiliary fire fighting unit alone, not the eight we have signed up so far. We need greater num- bers all along the line and I’m appealing to you folks here to- night. to bring five more persons along with you to next Monday’s meeting." Immediate Action Urged Mayor William Stevenson, Coun- ty Commissioner Robert Trenck- mann. and Bernhard Winieckl, called upon by Commissioner Bro- die to express their thoughts on the subject, concurred in the idea that action must come now. Fire Chief Dean Carmen. told the group that a Tacoma fireman is being sent to Maryland to study effective ways of putting out incendiary bombs and that when he returned he would go around speaking to the various Defense Units explaining his find- ings. Prosecutor Frank Houston re- minded the gathering that one line of activity in which the De- fense.Unit members can be of great assistance is in keeping their eyes and ears open for subversive actions. which should be reported to the F.B.I., police or sheriff im- mediately. Psychological Benefit Representative Charles Savage pointed out that one of the bene- fits Of such an organization would be to create the psychological feeling of being prepared among the people and would teach the people how to work together. Commissioner Trenckmann commented that the American people are too complacent about emergencies, that they have be- come used to letting the regular fire department, the regular police agencies, and so forth to take care of events requiring trained ac- tion because that is What the pub- lic pays for. “But if war comes we may find that these agencies cannot handle the tremendous ex- tra burden and then is when such an organization as this needs to be prepared to function efficiently and effectively.” Chairman Myron Lund of the Mason County Red Cross pointed out that the Red Cross through- out the nation has been orgahized and acting on a war-time pro- gram since the first of the year and assured the gathering that all facilities of the Red Cross in Mason County are available to the Defense Unit. “We might take the Red Cross as an example of how it pays to be prepared in advance for an emergency.” Mayor Stevenson POinted out. “if the Red Cross was not organized and prepared for an emergency it could not possibly be so highly effective in floods, fires. tornadoes, and other emer- gencies."
