~ ;i i/;;iqi! iil I~!L !ii~) Bud Tuson lie Although majoring in chemical engineering, Bud Tuson, extremely perceptive and sensitive, should, perhaps, consider a field in which he might deal directly with human beings. ''I am interested in psychiatry, and also law," Tuson states, "but either would require a great deal more schooling." Bud, the son of Mr. and Mrs. Roger A. Tuson, will be a junior at the University of Washington next fall. He has completed courses in physics and calculus and will continue in the study of chemistry. "I consider myself a mediocre student," Bud declares, "1 know that 1 could apply myself better than I do." However, Bud Tuson devotes his time to study rather than to extracurricular activities. He was active throughout his high school years, but finds that learning on college level is a full-time job. "1 did turn out for football in ........ ~ f~--~aman ye~" he ~y~ut ~r0pped out with~*~iglt~ed shoulder half way through the seas on." The lower campus of the University is devoted to engineering classes and the upper to humanities, some of which are required in Tuson's course. He finds most of his friends on the upper campus. "The engineering students," he explains, "are so dedicated to science - so preoccupied with physics and chemistry -- that they have no real view of life." It is with the life-attuned students of the humanities that Bud Tuson holds the intellectual discussions that are so satisfying to his inquiring mind. Deeply interested in people, Tuson is a loner. He finds human beings fascinating in spite of - or, perhaps, because of - their inherent selfishness and sdf-centeredness. "I enjoy talking to people," Tuson insists, "and I truly like people; but I feel no need to surround myself with them." Rich in the elusive qualities of understanding, Bud Tuson, although not a participant, sympathized readily with disruptions occuring on the campus. "Most of those involved," he remarks, "are sincere in their' beliefs. There are undoubtedly some who go along with anything just for the action, and those I don't admire; but the young person who feels intensely and is unable to attract attention to his more unobtrusive efforts at communication is absolutely justified in re~orting to non-violent demonstrations"' In his freshman year Tuson lived in apartments; last year he moved into Lander Hall, where many controversies have occured. Both boys and girls reside in the racially-intregrated building. "I got along well with everyone, regardless of color," Tuson says, "and I found myself readily accepted by minority groups." Communication with lig non-white students posed no problem for him tfe found himself free to speak his thoughts with no necessity for pretense. "It's good to listen to the other side of a story." he maintains. "'Agreement is not conducive to an exchange of ideas." But Tuson has made the observation that minority races are much closer to one another than are whites. The unity, he believes, is an emotional and psychological thing as well as a physical one. "They do not usually steal from one another, nor do they cause one another trouble," he continued, "and they do not avoid physical proximity as a white person does." Tuson has noticed that there is an area surrounding the average white within which he prefers that the casual acquaintance does not venture. 'Td place the distance at about two feet." says Tuson. "Move closeLLllan that, and the average whith"person tends to withdraw as though he were being crowded." "As whites enter singly an auditorium," Tuson cohtinues, "they select seats apart, leaving empty chairs between themselves and their neighbors. The minority race member does not do this. He walks right in and sits down beside someone of his own color." Bud Tuson believes that the lack of closeness on the part of the white race extends to communication. "Because they tend to keep their distance from one another," he remarks, "1 think that they are, in many cases, unable to express their true views." Bud has a brother and three sisters. He enjoys water skiing, hiking and an occasional game of golf. He is employed through the summer as a chokerman for Simpson Timber Co. To Tuson the well-educated person is not only well-read and knowledgeable in classroom learning, but is also qualified to deal with matters of life. "l'm not at all sure I've chosen the right major," Bud Tuson admits. 'Tll complete collegeand see what the draft does to me."

Her husband, Bill, then serving in Army Security, was stationed at that time in Fort Bragg, N.C. and the couple lived in Fayetteville for two and a half years. Last September they returned to the Hoodsport area, and hope soon to move into the Skokomish Valley. "I want to get a horse," Linda explains. "I've never had one of my own, although I've ridden a lot and I've always loved horses." During her stay in North Carolina she met and became friends with an outstanding horsewoman Eunice O'Brien. "I learned a lot about the handling of horses from her," Linda says. In North Carolina, the Johnson's daughter Candee was born. She is now 16 months old, and participates in family camping trips. The Johnsons like to hunt and to fish, and they enjoy pack-trips. While living in Fayetteville, Linda Johnson was employed as a waitress, and last Spring she worked at the George Adams Fish Hatchery, clipping fins. She will resume this job in the fall and again next spring. Sewing is one of her accomplishments, and she fashions garments for herself and her daughter. She has always liked to cook and she is especially interested in perfecting original recipes. A favorite since her childhood days is "Kumla", a Norwegian dish made by her paternal grandmother. "My mother learned to make them for my father," she relates, "and now I make them for my husband." For those who may not care for so starchy a food, Linda includes an excellent quick-fudge recipe. "I learned to make it in my seventh grade home economics class," she recalls. ! CANDEE LIKES the ten-minute fudge often made by her mother, Linda Johnson.

Jane erner The Sunday School of Hood Canal Community church celebrated "Gram Werner Day" on Sunday to honor Mrs. Jane Werner, the oldest member of the church, who has been a Sunday School teacher for 67 years. Mrs. Werner was 'born in Poughkeepsie, N.Y. on Nov. 10, 1887. At the age of two she moved to Pittsburgh, Penn. where her family attended the Smithfield Methodist Church. At sixteen years of age she was asked to teach a class of girls not much older than herself. Later she taught juniors and for many years was a junior department superintendent. She also worked in vacation bible schools and other ministries with children and women. During World War II Mrs. Werner participated in a work at Fort Lewis for service men. Six of these young men now are on the foreign mission field and others are active laymen. Seventeen years ago she moved to the canal, became a member of Hood Canal Community Church, and has taught regularly until this July. She has also held various offices in the church. Mrs. Werner is still active, greeting visitors in the foyer each Sunday and seeing that the guest book is signed. She also carries on a large correspondence with Christian workers world-wide. During the Sunday School hour Debbie Eastgard sang a favorite hymn, "Great Is Thy Mrs. Jane Werner C. Karo syrup 1 Tbsp. water 1 tsp. vanilla 1 C.

Brush with melted fat and place on grill skin side up at least 7 inches from coals. Cook slowly (1 to 2 hours, depending on distance from heat). Turn and baste often. Baste with melted fat or basting sauce (equal amounts of fat and lemon juice are very good) every 5 to 10 minutes or often enough to prevent burning. Cook until meat is tender. The leg bone will turn easily in the socket when the chicken is done. The most popular barbecued chicken pieces are thighs, drumsticks, whole legs, wings and breasts. Small pieces should be cooked around the edges of the grill where the fire is not so hot. Baste and turn them frequently. If you barbecue the giblets, simmer the gizzard about 10 minutes in slightly salted water, then cut into halves or quarters and thread along with the heart and liver on a small metal skewer.
