Conner State To Ta Over Ferry Rep. Paul Conner (D-24th Dist.) this week urged that the State Toll Bridge Authority acquire the privately-operated Port Townsend to Keystone (Whidbey Island) ferry route. In a letter to Gov. Daniel J. Evans, chairman of the toll bridge authority, the 24th District legislator said the Olympic Ferries may soon go out of business because of severe financial losses. "This is to appeal to the Toll Bridge Authority to add this route to the state ferry system," Conner said. "It seems unfair that a private company should be forced to continually take severe losses on a route that properly should be part of the state system." H. J. Carroll, Olympic Ferries secretary-treasurer, said the company will go out of business in the event that the State Utilities and Transportation Commission denies a request for elimination of its run from Oct. 16 to April 15 of next year. "If the schedule change is not approved," Carroll said, "we will be forced to surrender our certificate at the end of the summer sc:~son, Sept. 7." A spokesman for the Utilities and Transportation Commission estimated thai Olympic Ferries lost some $45,000 last year, and commented, "I can't understand how they could operate for six months out of the year and make money either." In applying to the Utilities Building, according to Chet Dombroski, high school principal, Aug. 23, 24, and 25, from 9 to Noon and 1 to 4 p.m. It will not be necessary for students who registered last spring (all regular students) to register. However, they should pay their fees at this time. It was announced by Floyd Jackson, junior high school cancellation, Carroll suggested that the commission contact the Toll Bridge Authority "to see if the state can offer better service" than the proposed schedule will afford. THE COURAGE we desire and prize is not the courage to die decently, but to live manfully.

Youth Is "ommitted To ia By Court A 1 7-year-old boy was committed to Cascadia by Judge Hewitt Henry last week after a hearing had been held the previous week. The judge had withheld his decision in the case in order to clarify what had been done in a previous juvenile court action on the youth. Shelton Police Officers testified the youth had been picked up on two occasions for consuming liquor during the time he was on probation. After the last arrest, juvenile officers told the court, he left the state and failed to report as he was supposed to do. He was returned to Mason County after being arrested in California. The youth contended he had not been told he could not leave the state and that he had no notice of a hearing at which he did not appear. School Board " The Shelton School Board will hold its regular August meeting at 8 p.m. Aug. 10 in the Evergreen School Library. Young Democrats, the group voted to support the American Farm Workers' boycott of Italian Swiss Colony wine. The farm workers contend that they do not get a fair wage and feel that the company that makes Italian Swiss Colony wine and other products is being uufair by not allowing the workers to unionize. The pickets urged the public to give Cesar Chavez and his 10,000 United Farm Workers a helping hand by not patronizing stores that sell the products of the company. Shelton's Young Democrats spoke to the manager of the Shelton Safeway Store last Tuesday and asked him to sell out his stock of ttt wine a~ad not to reorder, or they would picket the store. He refused, said a YD officer. Jim Kneeland, a spokesman for the local group, said that the goals of the demonstration were to enlighten the people and to make the public understand the problems of the farm workers. He also stated that the only way to salvation of the Democratic party, they felt, was by revitalization and showing concern with the social issues of the time. Mark Stensager, President of Washington Young Democrats, appeared Tuesday afternoon to join the picketing. He explained that the Shelton demonstration was part of the statewide effort by the YD's to help the United Farm Workers and to encourage people not to patronize stores that sell certain products made with nonunion help. He added that the Shelton branch of the YD's was one of the best in the state. Although small in number, he said, the local group has more talent to do things on its own, as demonstrated by the picketing. our new administrator for and Mr. Clizer will be glad to answer any questions you may have.
