ART IS the imposing of a pattern on experience, and our esthetic enjoyment in recognition of the pattern. Alfred Whitehead 00 ,1~p,O OO OOo00qmlbqlmb~'~bQ You Should Know... ! t ! Lifetime Shelton area resident William S. Valley, born January 30, 1896, retired after full and active years of employment to make his home on a five-acre tract on ltammersley Inlet. There, on park-like premises, he grows more than a hundred hybrid roses plus dahlias, rhododendrons, azaleas, sweet peas, vegetables and a profusion of flowers both perennial and annual. Bill Valley remembers his school days in the Matlock area, where 40 pupils and one teacher shared a one room building, "In those days," Bill declares, "when one asked permission to leave the room, one left tile building." Matlock was then, according to Valley, a thriving community of some 500 persons. It was the junction of the Port Blakley Railroad. Machine shops were there, Jacobson's small store and the general store owned by the Lumbermen's Mercantile Company; a Post Office; and a building wherein one danced on Saturday night and on the next morning attended Sunday School and church. In 1907 the John ('. Valleys moved from Matlock to a farm near Deckerville, and Bill recalls the baseball team whose games were played following morning church services. "The team was called 'The Shamrocks', Bill reminisces, "and we even had uniforms." One of Valley's first jobs was "whistlepunking'" for Foreman Crosby at Sampson's Camp 7; he worked for Will Grisdale at ('amp I; he ran a gas pump for Frank Fieser, foreman on construction; he was employed on the railroad by Bert Callow. lie fired a steam donkey for Bill Callow in the Oxbow country, also yarding cedar shingle boltsfor him in the Beevitle area; he was a night watchman for the Fort Blakley rernen CLINT WILLOUR Show me a man who owns adequate Life Insurance and knows why he owns it, and I'll show you a man who's happy. Railroad at Cloquallum and later fired a locomotive there; still later he performed the same task for George Simpson at Lake Cushman. "This was years before the dana was built," Bill explains. "We fired with oil and I had to get up at 4:30 in the morning to "keep the locie hot'. Therefore I was always first in line when the breakfast gong sounded." "'I found time to do some fishing there, too," he added. tie was next employed as timekeeper for the Wynooche Timber Company, 46 miles out of Aberdeen, and after that as timekeeper for Mason County Logging Co.Bordeau Brothers at old Camp 6 near Dayton. In 1 916 William Valley accepted a job with Lumbermen's Mercantile Co. "Mark E. Reed was president and C. S. McGee was manager," he recalls. lie volunteered in April of 1917 and during World War I served in both Army and Navy. lte re-joined kumbermen's in 1920 and worked in the grocery department until 1948 when he transferred to the credit department, holding the position of credit manager until his retirement in 1961. "Unlike the young people of today," Valley remarks, "1 didn't buy my shiny black Ford coupe until 1923 when 1 was 27 years old, and 1 avoided matrimony until 1924." tte and his wife Verna, have three children, all graduates of Shelton lligh School and of Washington State University. Marjorie Ann is Food and Fashion editor of the Oregon Journal; William K. is an Air Force Major; John (;. is a retired Air Force Captain. William Valley is a charter member of the American Legion. He was Past Commander in 1936, and has been awarded life membership.

Madrona Barracks No. 1462 Veterans of World War I. At the age of 14 years he served as secretary of Lincoln Grange No. 357. His enthusiasm for fishing is shared by his wife, whose catch, Bill admits, o[ten surpasses his own. "So far this year," he says, "we've caught 170 trout." The Valleys prefer lake fishing and make frequent trips into Canada. They enjoy steelheading, but tend to avoid rough weather more than they did in their younger years. Bill also likes hunting; but most of all he enjoys his garden. The perfecting of his lawns and flower beds involved hard work. Much fertilizer was required, and not the least of his problems have been the deer against whose forays he has built fences. "in January of 1965," Bill Valley says, "'I was warned by the great Creator to slow down 1 had a stroke followed in October of the same year by a heart attack. I spent 44 days in the hospital, and since then I avoid over-tiring myself." In spite of his restriction, he sprays his roses every week or ten days and after each rain if possible; he uses a systematic rose fertilizer every six weeks and if the plants are not healthy he makes additional monthly applications of another good rose food. "Even so," he lamented, "black spot seems to appear." An eight-foot-tall tree geranium is among the rare specimens on the Valley landscape. Many branches bear rosy-lavender blossoms in sprays. Although the plant will winter-kill in severe weather, it self-Seeds and blooming trees will be produced in two years. There are trees, both fruit-bearing and ornamental; maiden-hair ferns flourish in sheltered areas, and a strawberw bed is begun. An especially showy rose is the climber "Joseph's Coat", the blooms of which vary from orange coral to deep rose red. A delicately beautiful single is "Dainty Bess". "First Love", "Tropicana", "Aquarius". "Queen Elizabeth", Montezuma", "Irish Gold", - the list of glorious roses goes on and on. In addition to the large and well-established bushes are the numerous cuttings propagated in a special bed. A record is kept of all plantings. "It's a lot of detailed work," Bill Valley acknowledges, "but one is well rewarded."

"CINDy & DONNA,- Teri Wiss lie, "When the creative impulse overtakes me,'" Teri Wiss declares, "1 drop everything and turn nay entire effort toward the completion of nay project." Although she sculpts, paints and writes Ted finds the nlost satisfying of her artistic outlets to be music, the field in which she has received the least training. "I just barely know where to find middle C," she admits, but l can hear and feel and think music. My mind is full of it." She has composed approximately 25 songs, mostly folk tunes. She plans her melodies on the guitar, and her music is recorded rather than written. "l've always appreciated music," she states, "and I've enjoyed it as a listener; but not until I entered college did ! experience this intense desire to write songs. I now regret my lack of knowledge in the field." Miss Wiss was graduated in June from Trinity University in San Antonio, Texas, where she majored in education and minored in art. She has a deep feeling for friendship. "For years," she declares, "'1 had thought i knew the meaning of the word. Not until 1 actually acquired a true friend did I begin to realize thedepth or the relationship.'" She feels that a nlere acquaintance is alltoo often mistaken for a friend. "1 doubt," she states, "that one gains more than one true friend in a life time." As a result of her first awakening awareness on the subject, she felt impelled to express in music her thoughts about friendship. In a stairwell of a college building at midnight she combined vocal melody and guitar chord into an outpouring of her emotions. "1 had just found a friend," she says, "and this teriffic elation was uppermost on my mind." It was 4:30 a.m. when she finished her composition, and although she had tests scheduled in two classes her exhaustion forced her to cut them both. Her teachers were very understanding. "Many of my songs since written have dealt with this subject," she continues. "Perhaps I am obsessed with it, but 1 think it is important." She sees a parallel between friendship and the trusting affection of a child who will return to his loved ones repeatedly after punishment or disappointment, in titter disregard of a possible repeat of his hurt. "Few adults can do this," she lie notices. "They are far too fearful of being hurt to give of themselves; and without the ability to place the other person's interests beyond one's own, friendship cannot exist." Teri Wiss was born in Pensacola, Fla., but left there at the age of two months and has returned only one time since. The military life of her parents, Cmdr. and Mrs, Don Wiss, necessitated a change of residence on an average of every two years. tier four-year stay in Corpus Christi as a high school student and her following four years at Trinity University gave Ted an opportunity for knowing people that she had not previously encountered. "Now i must start all over again," she says. As a sixth grade student, Teri's talent for art was discovered. "Prior to that time," she confessed, "1 was a poor student." One of my teachers was determined to convince me that I could draw. When l found that ! had an ability in this direction, my entire outlook w~,s changed. I developed coufidcnce and began to earn good grades. "As a teacher," l'eri emphasized, "1 shall be more concerned with the development of a child's self confidence and assurance than 1 shall be with his academic achievements." It was her own experience as a sixth-grader that led her to the desire to train for a teaching position. "1 hope," she states, "'that l may be able to do for others what this one teacher did for me.'" Miss Wiss prefers to paint in water colors, but uses any material that may be at hand. While attending.a math convention during her high school days, she fell in love with a Thurwell painting upon the wall and copied it in intimate accuracy, duplicating with lipstick and eyebrow pencil the intricate drawings of horses and riders assembled for a hunt, She is very enthusiastic about tennis and played on a team for all four high school years and for one college year. "After that 1 dropped out," she laughed, "because the college team intimidated me. Too many outstanding tennis players had come from Trinity, 1 guess." But she still enjoys the game. Upon the retirement of Cmdr. Wiss, Teri's parents moved to the area two years ago. She spent her three-month vacation with them last year, and looks forward to another year at home. you save It all begins on Friday at 5 P.M.
