Upon meeting it details well for the forthcoming dance to be held Sept. 4 at the Community Hall here on the Island. Two cases of r'oad improvement have taken place recently here on the Island. County crews first put a sealer coat on the road that had previously been oiled from the old garbage dump site down to the Ballow road junction. Then a week or so later they came out and oiled the newly remodeled hill on the Haskell Hill road. Only that part that was worked on last summer received the blacktop coating since the rest of the road over to the Marina would need additional improvement before it could be done. Then last week a construction crew piled a large supply of gravel at the sight of the former Harstine School. Then toward the end of the week they commenced a blacktop coating of the road from the Hall clear up to meet the blacktopped road at the beginning of the Harstene Pointe Development. And we can well believe this project, no doubt, met with the complete approval of the residents living along that road. Due to the heavy flow of Rose, Son Jimmy Ore.

Complete Shelton Gran as all construction traffic almost from dawn to sunset nearly every day that area of the Island comes close to comparing to a minature version of the midwest Dust Bowl of the 1930's John and Beulah Hitchcock have been spending a good share of their summer dropping in frequently at the home of their daughter, Pauline Carnes to help their grandaughter, Melanie pass the long summer days. Melanie is still confined to a cast and mostly her bed since she underwent back surgery the first part of June. She won't be able to start school until around the first of October. Beulah and John went up this past week to help her celebrate her birthday Monday. They report she is progressing very well according to her doctor. But Beulah say's she's withholding her own diagnosis of REAL progress until she sees Melanie back running around just like before the operation. But she's in wonderful spirits as her numerous friends just don't give her a chance to feel low. Her room resembles a miniature Grand Central Station each day as members of her generation come ]an we are lucky to have such a fine new hospital to recuperate in.

The Charm school, conducted by Mrs. Haldane Johnson has become very popular and after six sessions has been declared a real success. Around a dozen teenage girls meet with Pat every Wednesday morning learning good grooming, how to dress and act and how much fun it is 'Just being a girl.' One day the 4th runner-up in the Miss Washington contest, Cathy Johnson, a niece of Mrs. Johnson, came to the class and gave the girls pointers on posture and some of the things she had learned in charm school There will be four more lessons and all teenage girls are welcome. Mary and Chester Valley returned Friday from a trip to the East Coast, New York and Maine. Brother Dwight Valley, .manager of a Woolworth Store on Staten Island, took Chet and Mary on a three day tour of the town. They rode the Staten Island ferry for 5c fare, rode the elevators 67 stories up in the Rockefeller Center, saw the Broadway show, Fiddler on the Roof. They visited the United Nations Bldg., Stock Market, Madison Square Garden and rode the subways all under New York. In Macy's Dept. store they windowed shopped and saw fresh salmon for $5 per lb., smoked salmon, $9. per pound. A glass of milk is 40c and a cup of coffee 35c. Coming back the Valley's rode in a 747 Boeing jet on which there are 1 2 restrooms. No waiting in line there. Mr. and Mrs. Claud Dugger visited Mr. and Mrs. James Quails in Creswell, Ore. last week and then attended the Multnomah County fair in Portland with Mr. and Mrs. "Cap" Malar from Boring, Ore. and go constantly. They bring things to do and join her to do them. Club meetings are either held in her room or they carefully and very gently transfer her to a chaise lounge and then it and her out into the yard. Via this latter means, and with her doctor's approval they even loaded her into the back of a pickup truck and drove to a nearby drive-in theater where they backed into a stall and then with pillows and blankets they all piled in beside Melanie and had a delightful evening. A story such as this inspirational one, leaves one with the thought: In all the world is there anything more wonderful than true friends. Nine members of the Harstine Grange journied to Twanoh Grange last Friday evening. This Grange has been beseiged by problem after problem while constructing their new hall just outside of Allyn on the Belfair highway. Since none of the Grangers were able to attend the Open House celebrating their new hall it was decided at the last meeting that as many as possible try to go to their regular meeting this month to extend our best wishes to a wonderful Grange for their true perseverance throughout all the hardships that have befallen them in this huge effort. For Helen and Marshall Olson, Dorothy and Phil Chapman, Glenn and Carmen Yates, Bud Glaser, Chet Streckenback, and Erik Christensen it was a delightful evening well spent. Steig and Beula Gabrielsen took their new boat out for a test spin last week for a six day get acquainted cruise. The first day out they stopped at Ketron Island which they'd never been to previously. One night was spent there. Then they cruised on up to Blake Island which is just to the north of Vashon Island. it was there that their nineteen year old cat, Cindy wandered off on a sightseeing trip of her own. (It seems as though a good many of their jaunts just wouldn't be complete without a missing cat story) But as before the tale (pardon the pun) turned out all right. It seems the Indians had found her and when they located her the next morning she was on Cloud Nine (that is if cats have a Cloud Nine) and thoroughly enjoying bein~ treated to the Feline Red Carpet Service as though she was of Royal Blood. And as far as she was concerned Steig and Beula could go peddle their papers or do what ever they pleased she was literally up to her eyebrows in a fish feast bestowed upon her by her new friends - perched, where else - right smack dab in the middle of one of their outdoor picnic tables! With the cat and dog once again all aboard they headed toward Bremerton and up to Port Washington Narrows and the area around Chico. T e d a n d Elsie Ness were delighted to have Jeff Anderson, son of Jan and Andy Anderson who rented one of the Boatel i1==( Units last year come out for;n Ii- J, overnight visit before heading the family's San Diego home. This writer happened to have an opportunity to visit with him briefly when he was helping Pat Ness do some shopping for the Marina in a Shelton grocery store last Saturday. It was plain to see he sure wished he and his family still called Harstine home.

They have four girls attending Grange Youth Camp at By DEE WILLIAMSON Smokey and I have really been busy this past week. With all this hot weather Smokey has really had to watch out for careless people who start forest fires. Smokey knows how easy it is for someone to forget to put their campfire completely out, or forget to use their ashtray and toss their matches or cigarettes out the window. He also knows that every 1 5 seconds, somewhere in this country, one of those careless people start a forest fire. Smokey and I made a visit to Potlatch State Park. There were lots of people there and it was a very hot day. We reminded these people that the future of our country, state, and nation rests in the hands of our boys and girls. PanHandle Lake this week. They are Brenda and Lisa Rossmaier, Diana Sharp and Susan Goodburn. Grange will be postponed Aug. 20 because of the Mason County Fair. The meeting Aug 27 will be a 6:30 p.m. pot luck picnic at Proper use of our trees and forests will vitally affect our prosperity. Forest fires and unwise cutting are the principal threats to these resources. Keep this thought in mind as you are packing your things to leave the city for a weekend in the forest. Also, keep in mind this verse sung by Ivar Haglund, the man who was a key figure in the Keep Washington Green movement. Green grows the forests, and clear flow the streams, The mountain deer browses, the wild blossom gleams, From Ocean wave surging, to mountain serene, All nature is praying: "Keep Forest Lands Green".
