Among the limit Evans took from Cushman were the common silvers for which the lake is noted, several fine cutthroats, a m o n g which was the largest fish of the catch, and one rainbow.

There are six squadrons to a group and 18 planes to a squadron. Under modern military organ- ization the marines must have all the new weapons of an at— tacking army. When the marines go ashore from the fleet they take their own airplanes with them, and if the marines remain on land the planes remain with them while the fleet moves on. Today this correspondent looked at a fighting plane in a new light. It stood on the apron beside a hangar. It was a trim, powerfuli and complicated thing. After looking over the plane, Maj. San- derson led a tour of the facilities necessary to keep that plane in the air. There was a long row of shops for repair and overhaul. There were instruments so deli- cate that they could indicate not only whether a steel part wasl cracked but even if it was fatig- i ucd. There were elaborate paper files, the logbooks of each en- gine. There was not just one type of engine. but 22 differentl types which had to be worked on. There were parachutes of fine . silk. There was a painting room where sweating marines worch in temperatures kept high to dry. the paint. There Were motors be- ing tested on blocks. Everywhere: there were tools and machines de- signed to keep up a constant sci— entific accuracy. Then there were hangars full of planes under var— ious stages Of body repair. As this correspondent walked through one building after an— other, watching the hundreds of men at work. he began to realize that this was only the operating phase of it all. Back of that were, the thousands of men who worked in building the planes. Back of them were the designers. There were the instrument makers and- the produCers of armament. The picture became greater and great- er. At the field the plane was be- ing made read to take off. A young officer c imbed into the sin- gle seat. Here was still another part of the picture: the training of the men to fly the planes. The plane taxied down the runway and roared into the sky. climbing at a seemingly impossible angle. It disappeared over some low hills to ioin other planes in target prac- tice. As it disappeared there still was the picture of what it took to put a plane into the air and keep it there. For the first time this cor- resnondent got a full realization of the scope of President Roose- velt's plan for 50,000 fighting planes. or even half that number! It was a vastly different pic- ture from the one Mai. Sanderson had given when he told about dive bombing with a mail sack back in Haiti in 1919. l Former Slglton Resident Passes Numerous Shelton friends and Mrs. Anna C. Morford, early-day resident of Mason County, attended her funeral yes— terday in Seattle following her death there last Thursday.

Gray Hood Canal and Hinterland, August 10.-~For the benefit of the local pessimists who said the manganese in the Olympics would never be developed we. will not point out that our Hill Creek smelter is 95% completed. And will be in operation September 1st or perhaps sooner if We get power for operation sooner. You have no doubt taken corn to a griss mill . . . stick around a few minutes and take home your Or perhaps hauled a load And take home a barrel of sorghum. Well, if you stumble over a pile of rocks every time you step out of the house, haul them up to our smelter, stick around awhile and take home a pocket full of gold or silver or what have you, although We would rather assay your ore and pay you so much per ton and avoid waiting. And do you recollect that pile of brush at the mouth of Hill Creek on the east side? Mrs. Rose Millo has a $15,000 tavern there now, several modern cabins and auto park. Melvin Bearden’s resort is just across Hill Creek from Mrs. Mil- lo’s. Occasionally Mr. Bearden feels industrious, digs a hole in the bank on the upper side of the road, hauls it across the road, fills in another hole in the ground, builds a cabin where he has tak- en the dirt from and also one where the dirt was hauled. And you remember when Pot” latch was only a little booming- logging town. Now, if you are talking to someone from uptown Potlatch just say metropolitan, Potlatch and there will be no hard feelings. If you cover all the improve- ments on Hood Canal watefront it would require two full pages of a newspaper. You could go across the. canal and cover two more. Why not crank up the old bus and drive out? But don't forget your drivers license, other- wise you'll have to head for the cake.

Had a “grand” visit with Dora Fredson. Maude Shorter, Blanche. Bertrand, and Helen Hendricks when they were here. It is real- ly an occasion to see someone from home, and no matter whether I ever really knew them or not, it is “swell” to meet someone who even knows where Shelton is. Peo- ple from Washington State seem to be a rarity here. I’ll never forget the day I told a fellow [was from Washington State, and he said, “Ye Gods, that's way up by Alaska—isn’t it? What do you wear, to keep warm?"‘ Now, I ask you. what would you do in a case like that?
