"Olympic Ferries, the private operators of the ferry route, have indicated that they will have to go out of business unless they are permitted to suspend operations between October 16, and next April 15," Representative Conner said in a lc,ter to the committee chairman, Senator AI Henry. "It seems unfair that a private company should be forced to continually take severe losses on a route that properly should be a part of the state ferry system." the 24th District legislator, a member of the transportation committee, said Olympic Ferries have sustained losses of some $45,000 in operating the run. "If the State Utilities and Transportation Commission turns down the request for suspension of the service between October and April, the company will go out of business and the Olympic Peninsula Will be without this "7:': e connection to the east," he said.

Among those registered for the conference are Mrs. Morley Kramer, librarian at the Shelton City Library, and Mrs. Shirley Beelik, librarian at the Washington Corrections Center. Association business will take only a brief spot on the conference program. Most of the time will be devoted to exploring ways and means of recognizing and using local history in c o m m u nity libraries. Exhibits, lectures and workshops have been arranged to "show and tell" what history is all about, with emphasis on history as it is being made day by day. "We think this year's conference program is one of the most innovative in PNLA's own history," said Mrs. Ruth llamilton, program chairman. "'Almost everyone is interested in some aspect of history, and the workshops and lectures planned for the conference will give ideas to every librarian which can be used in his own community." A highlight of the three-day program will be the concluding "International" banquet at which past presidents of the association will be honored. Eighteen of them are expected to attend.
