What are you doing at 7 o'clock tonight? If the weather is hot most readers in Huckleberry Herald territory will probably be sitting on their beach or floating on an inner tube or diving off their dock to cool off. By taking just 30 minutes of your time to forsake your water activities, gather up the kids, visiting relatives and summer neighbors, to pass out paper and pencils and watch the "National Water Safety Test" on Channel 9, you may learn some life-saving fact which may save the life of someone dear to you. In this part of the County almost everyone lives on the water; either Hood Canal, Puget Sound or one of the many lakes of the area. During the summer months most recreation centers around water-oriented activities, whether it be swimming, fishing or water-skiing. As more and more people move into the area each year, the number of close calls increases and one never knows when he or she will find themselves in the spot of having to help out in an emergency. The emergency may involve total strangers whose boats hit each other as they pass your house. Or it may be a small relative who hasn't learned to swim who falls off your dock. From the story sent out by the American Red Cross, found elsewhere in the paper, it sounds like the film tonight should give you an idea of how to act when an emergency arises. And with Pat Paulsen as the star, it would be entertaining as well as educational. Wouldn't you feel more relaxed during the next busy holiday weekend when 15 people you didn't invite join the 20 you did to enjoy your beach to know that in case of an accident, your family will be prepared to do the right thing? A PILOT CAR was busy in Belfair last Thursday and Friday as it led cars down one side of the highway while the other side got a new coat of asphalt. Last weekend's summer residents and tourists were happy to find the State Highway department had widened and smoothed out the bumps from the road through town. ~~~u~~u~~~~~~~~~u~~~~~~~~~~~u~~u~~~~~~~~~~~u~~~~u~~~u~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~u~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~u~~~~~~~~~u~u~~~~~~~~~~ A section of the Shelton-Mason County Journal serving as the voice of Belfair, Allyn, Grapeview, Tahuya, Mason Lake, South Shore and North Shore.

Subscription: $5.00 per year in Mason County; $6.00 per A new auto parts store opened for business in Belfair last week with three members of the Belfair Pack Rats, a search and rescue group, as co-owners. Besides furnishing auto parts, for which they have the North Mason franchise for Mopar products, they will specialize in parts for 4-wheel drive vehicles. Each is owner of a Jeep which they have used or~ rescue missions and they know how hard it has been at times to find replacements for parts broken on trips over some of the local back roads. Ray Sage, Barry Snorer and Gene Triplett are the three to join the growing list of Belfair businessmen. All three are keeping their regular jobs for the time being, at least, and Sage's wife, Bev, will be on duty to run the store when one of the owners is not available. At present Sage is working graveyard shift at PSNS, Snover works dayshift at Bremerton Bottling and Triplett, also on dayshift, is employed by North Shore Service. With the new shop to be open six days a week, from 9 to 9, there will be lots of opportunity for the men to be on hand during their off-hours from their regular jobs. Emergency calls will be handled on Sundays.

Last week most of their business was from local service stations who were finding it convenient to let SS and T furnish parts needed for car repair jobs, but the three owners hope that they can serve individuals in the area, too, as they learn of the availability of their service. An open house is planned for the near future.

Mr. and Mrs. Arthur McKaig of Pleasant Cove spent four days last week cruising in Canadian waters with friends. Son Robert caught his first salmon. Earlier, without children, the McKaigs spent six days sailing in the San Juans. Back in 1908 Ada Lincoln Miller, alone and single-handed, developed a homestead near Bison, South Dakota. This summer she attended an annual celebration of pioneer days in the community. It was there that she was later married and there where her husband died in the terrible "flu epidemic of 1918." Mrs, Miller's six-week trip took her to Spokane, Big Timber, Montana, and finally to her former home, which she still owns, in Decorub, Iowa, where she visited her cousin. SCARE ON NORTH SHORE A carload of teenagers went through a frightening experience on North Shore around noon August 2 when another car I tailgated them off and on, accelerating and then dropping back, until finally, the driver must have misjudged the distance and the car struck the car ahead in the rear. It then took off before the driver could be apprehended. The teenagers' vehicle was damaged to the extent of $100 in the trunk area.
