Reasons For Over- Subscribing Cited Latest reports of progress in Mason County’s U.S.O. drive give an approximate total of $350 rais- ed to date, Button Sale Chairman Vin Connolly announced yesterday. That is Slightly over half the quota assigned to Mason County. : Solicitors still have several blocks of the business district to cover and all the industrial area, he said, so hopes of attaining the $690.g9al..sregood-.. . ~ In the meantime, General Chair- man Walter M. Elliott received the following letter from Nation- al Chairman Thomas E. Dewey urging continued efforts to reach and surpass the goal. The letter stated: “When the news reaches you that the original national goal of the USO will be oversubscribed, we hope you and all your associ- ates will bear in mind that this will depend on the complete suc-' cess of all the local USO cam— paigns that are yet, unfinished or have not yet started. “There are two impelling rea— sons for an over-subscription on our original goal, and consequent- ly for asking every USO com- 'mittee to meet its full quota: “First, because there are nearly a million more men in service than there were when the goal of $10,765,000 was established, and many more areas in which the USO has been asked to operate, and “Second, because our present budget must be stretched to cov- er a period of 14 months instead of 12. “So with growing demands for USO service, and despite the pub- lic‘s remarkable response to date, we shall unquestionably need eV‘ .ery cent that can be raised.” Sincerely yours, THOMAS E. DEWEY. Colored Braids Worn by Soldiers Identified Here All those different colors you may have noticed on soldiers, who are thicker than the needles on our Douglas firs, are not just 1h- dividual efforts of the boys '1“ khaki to attain a degree of 111‘ dividuality.

FORMS AT BANK NOW FOR INCOME ~~ TAX SAVING PLAN Lay-Away Idea To Help People Provide Funds To Pay Their Income Taxes Taxpayers of Shelton and vi- cinity who Wish to profit by the tax savings plan just inauguratedl by the U. S. Treasury department may find necessary forms at the Shelton branch of the Seattle- First National Bank, Manager Laurence Carlson announced to— day. This Plan was formulated to help taxpayers put aside money this year for the specific purpose of paying income taxes payable next year or in 1943. By purchasing special notes offered by the treas- ury department, taxpayers may now take steps toward meeting the taxes which must be paid on income received this year and at the same time realize interest on such investment. , There are two kinds of notes. series A notes are in. denomina- tions of $25, $50 and $100. Series B notes are in denominations of $100 $500, $1,000 and $100,000. Taxpayers whose payments on income amount to less than $1,- 200 should invest in series A notes,_which bear nearly two per cent interest. A $25 note will have a tax payment value of $25.28 in March, $25.40 in June, $25-52 in September and $25.64 in December of next year. I I I I cap, campaign hat or regimental insignia. Twenty different color schemes are used by different Army branches to identify themselves- Most commonly seen is the llght blue of the Infantry, then com the scarlet of the Artillery—490 the Coast and Field artilleries- The Cavalry is identified by a yellow braid, the Finance De' partment uses a silver gray with golden yellow; the Military Police have yellow piped W1”; green; General Staff Corps. $01 piped with black; Chemical W111" fare Service, cobalt blue Wlth golden yellow; Signal Corps. 0:; ange piped with white; Judge A}; vocate General’s Department. dar .blue piped with light blue; the Air Corps, ultra-marine b piped with golden orange.

In previous rounds in the championship flight Murphy had defeated Jack Banks of Bremer- ton and the defending ’champion, Phil Bayley, beforevbumping into Kneeland. Eight golfers compos- ed the titular flight. Kneeland eliminated Heinie Hil- derman and Roger Snelgrove in «working through to the finals. R. Snelgrove defeated Mark Fredson and Bayley whipped Walt Snel- grove in opening round matches of the championship tournament. Crimson-thatched Bill Graham worked throughia field of eleven starters in the first flight to cop the consolation trophy, dropping Bill Weeks in the finals, 4 and 3.2 Graham had previously knocked over Warren Melcum, 3 and 2, and Bob Bell, 4 and 3, after drawing a first round bye. Weeks worked ‘into the finals by defeating Don Hall, 2 up, and Cy Murphy, 2 and 1, after a first round bye. Other entrants were Al Dan- iels, A1 Huerby, Rolla Halbert, Bill Bourland and Jud Holloway. BAKER TROPHY PLAY STARTS IMMEDIATELY Fresh from his triumph in the championship tournament, Phil Murphy now faces the task of defending the Baker Trophy he captured last year in the next tournament competition on tap for Shelton’s golfing fraternity. Qualifying starts immediately, after which the tournament will be run off at medal play with 3/; handicap. Tourney Manager George Ashbaugh announced to- day.

NAVY POSTS RESTRICTION .0'N AIRPRRI‘ Improvement Work Expected To Begin In About A Month; Civ- ilian Flyers May Still Use Field For Awhile Notices restricting public use of the Shelton airport, recently acquired as an auxiliary landing field for the U. S. Navy Air forces, were posted yesterday by Naval officials, Orin. Ellison, chairman of the Chamber of Com— mittee airport committee, report— ed today. The restriction is not directed. against use of the field by civil- ian aviators as yet, Ellison said the Navy officials told him, but more to restrict automobiles from going out upon the landing field than anything else. The notices, however, caution civilian aviators using the field to keep a, sharp lookout for naval planes which may be using the field and to give them right of' way whenever encountered der such circumstances. Technically, the r e s t r i c t i o n against motor vehicles would take in a part of the Shelton golf course road, Ellison pointed out. He 'said the Navy men who posted the notices yesterday said work on improving‘the local air- port by the Navy Department Should be starting in about a month as‘ near 'as they knew. Work on a couple of other Navy airports which had precedence over the. Shelton field is now nearing completion, they said, and would release contractors to start the improvement here. AIITOISTS WARNER TO STAY OUT OF NIANEINPR AREAS Roads To Be Clogged With Heavy Traffic Throughout South- . West Washington un- Army officials have warned civ- ilian motorists to stay out of the war games area during the next week because of exceptionally heavy traffic over roads. in South- Washington, it was announced yesterday from Fort Lewis. Alli highways probably will be clogged and traffic will be much heavier than when troops left Fort Lewis last spring for maneuvers in California. Troops will be de- ploying back and forth over roads from and to the fort in addition to the movement of about 50,000 troops coming up from California. The maneuvers, greatest in west Coast history, got under way early Wednesday morning when a huge mythical enemy fleet theoretically invaded the Wash- ington Coast at dawn, quickly cap- tured and destroyed Fort Worden at Port Townsend, bombed and laid in ruins McChord Field at Tacoma, and landed parachute troops at Aberdeen and Raymond, lwhere communications were out before warnings could be broad- cast to the defending troops. Theoretically, four hours after the attack started Port Townsend, Port Angeles, Aberdeen, Hoquiam, Raymond, Seaside, Ore., Canby, Ore., and Warrington, Ore., had been captured by the invaders, along with the mouth of the Co- lumbia River. Locally there' has not been a great deal of activity noticeable insofar as the maneuvers a r e concerned other than a few dozen Army trucks carrying soldiers stopping in or passing through town. State Patrolman Cliff Aden, however, has had an Army ob- server riding with him on his pa- trol car the past two days. He reported this morning they had come across an enemy crew set- ting up a portable radio sending set in the Cloquallum area yester- day and had encountered an in- vader tank squadron in the same area yesterday. Tomorrow He Is Lieut. Joe Vigor Joe Viger, son of Mr. and Mrs. A. S. Viger of Shelton, becomes Lieut. Viger of the U. S. Army Air Corps tomorrow at graduation exercises to be held at Brooks Field, Texas. He has been in training for sev- eral months at Randolph Field, Texas, and previously at Los An- geles. Mrs. Plumb As_ked To Be Candidate Mrs. Laura K. Plumb, Shelton librarian, has been extended an honor rarely accorded a small town librarian when she was ask- ed to permit her name to be sub- mitted as a candidate for, the executive board of the Washing- ton State Library Association at its annual convention this month. Mrs. Plumb accepted the invi- tation with appreciation. -_....___,_._._._ I Angler Starts Young; 3-Yr-O-Id Bags Cutthroat Three-year-old Billy Dunning, son of Mr. and Mrs. George Dunning, is starting his career as a fisherman about as early as possible. Last evening he landed his first fish, a foot-long searun cutthroat trout, while fishing with his granddad, T. V. Dun- ning, assistant Shelton postmas- ter, near the Dunning home at Arcadia. Angler Bill was holding the trolling line while Granddad rowed the boat, when the cut- throat struck. Instructed by Granddad, Billy, rather excited- ly, you may be sure, reeled in and landed his catch. Even as you and 1, Billy was so proud of his catch he went to sleep with it, wrapped in wax paper, in his arms as his parents drove back to Shelton latex-Vin the evening and would have taken it to bed with him had he had his way about the whole thing. G 0 0 D PROGRESS ON PROPOSED AIR SERVICE RELATED West Coast Airlines Represent- duties on the legal cargo of ships ative Visits Shelton In Behalf Of Non—Stop Service Optimistic over prospects of success, John C. Allison, repre- sentative of West Coast Airlines, Inc., which proposes to establish a non-stop plane delivery and pickup service on a route which would include Shelton, visited Chamber of Commerce and muni- cipal officials of Shelton yester- day to gather further necessary information in preparing the way for the proposed service. Mr. Allison expressed consid- erable optimism over the chances of establishing the proposed air service and said the plan gener- ally is shaping up well and is making encouraging progress in virtually all the communities it proposes to cover. One delay which is slowing progress, Mr. Allison said, the fact that ten applications for such services in various parts of the nation are now on file with the Civil Aeronautics Authority whereas at the present time only one such service is in actual ex- istence and under operation back East. Many Seek Franchise Investigations which the C.A.A. must make on each application is resulting in a delay in awarding the franchises. The West Coast Airlines, Inc., 'proposes to include Shelton as one pickup and delivery point on one of seven coordinated routes cov- ering the entire Pacific Coast re- gion in a non-stop air service which would include mail and ex- press delivery and pickup. Shelton is listed on Route 2, with terminal points at Seattle and Portland and intervening Pick—up and delivery points at Kent, Auburn, Enumclaw, Buck- ley, Sumner, Puyallup, Tacoma, Olympia, Tenino, Centralia, Che-. halis, Elma, Montesano, Aberdeen, Hoquiam, Cosmopolis, Raymond. South Bend, Ilwaco, Astoria, Sea- Side, Kelso, Longview, Kalama, St. Helens and Vancouver would be other points Served on the same route, with a series of Seven routes starting at Port Angeles and going as far south as Bakersfield, Calif., being in- terlinked in the entire system. Non-Stop System Operation of the service would be conducted on the Air Pick—Up and Delivery method, now being used successfully in Eastern states, whereby the air mail and express are picked up and de- livered while the plane is in flight. As the necessity for land- ing is eliminated, this 'method gives high speed service and also brings to cities and towns With- out airports the benefits of air transportation of mail and ex- press to and from trunk air line connections. A detail yet to be ironed out in the Shelton situation is lo- cating a suitable place conven- ient to town where the pickup and delivery could be made in- asmuch as the Shelton airport is now officially in the hands of the iU. S. Navy. Shelton Women Plan Bus Tour Vacations Mrs. Lydia Towers, c IS treasurer’s office staff ember, and Mrs. Ethel Flatner, Mell Chevrolet company accountant and bookkeeper, plan to leave here Saturday on a joint vacafion trip on which they hope to take an eight—day bus tour out of Port— land down the Oregon coast to San Francisco, across the moun- tains to Reno and Salt Lake City and back to Portland. unty ' bureau is divided into marine, en- OFF Federal Burcau‘s Activities (Joverv Wide Scope; Two Represent— atives Give Interesting Program To Club Intricacies of operating the U. S. Customs Bureau of the Treas-z ury Department were disclosed to |members of the Active Club and a large number of guests last night by Deputy Collector E. L. Chittenden and Capt. Ben Potter of the Customs Guards. And an intricate business it is, ,too, the service club members learned. They found that such seemingly unrelated duties as ad— ministering the Alaska game laws and regulations of the In- ternational Fisheries Commission come within the scope of Customs Bureau men. Mr. Chittenden displayed a chart which showed how the Customs try, monies and accounts, appris- ing, and liquidating divisions, all with different types of cases to handle, and among its enforce- ment agencies are border patrol, outside inspectors, guards, and customs agents divisions, also with separately defined duties. Big Territory He explained that this district, essentially the State of Washing- ton proper, has eleven land and. 13 marine ports of entry at which its agents are stationed, that it 'is the task of patroling 265 miles of land border and 2047 miles ofl water border. The most commonly known dut-. ies of the Customs Bureau, he ad- mitted, are those of inspecting ships for illegal cargo, chiefly narcotics, and to collect customs docking at American ports. He pointed out that the task of searching a suspected ship for narcotics is highly intricate be- cause of the large amount of space available for hiding stuff in. He said that a crew of 30 men working three or four days could do a fairly thorough job of search- ing an average sized freight or' passenger ship. Smuggling Follows Business The smuggling of opium and other narcotics, Mr. Chittenden said, has decreased greatly in re-I cent years due to finer enforce- ment methods. He also added that it has been the Customs Bureau’s experience that the smuggling of narcotics follows the same gen- eral cycle as business, dropping as business conditions become poor and rising as business conditions improve. Capt. Potter of the Customs Guards regaled the gathering with some of the experiences he has. had in the actual enforcement end of the Customs Bureau’s work. He called the Customs the first line of defense of America because it is the first agency to come in con- tact with foreign countries through their ships, as a rule. He said all members of the' Customs Guards and searching parties are handpicked, highly capable men, able to discern quickly anything out of the or- dinary and to spot quickly pos- sible places of concealment. Displays Interesting The two Customs represent- atives displayed sets of 'opium pipes used in consuming narcotics and passed around numerous pho- tographs showing how the stuff is put up for easy carrying and concealment, some of the men seized in raids, and some of the hauls made by Customs me nin raids. The Activians kept their two Speakers busy answering questions until after ten o’clock, so inter— esting was the subject matter covered. Active International President Art Fairchildpof Raymond was a surprise ‘guest of the Shelton club last night, but he came in an informal capacity and did not bring any message to the club other than a Short welcome to the club’s guests. President Chuck Rowe announc- ed that the joint picnic with Cen- tralia originally scheduled for next Sunday at Walt Eckert’s place at Grapeview has been postponed for one week and will be held Aug- ust 24. Bourland Sends Resignation A s Grocery Manager Bill Bourland announced today he has tendered his resignation, effective immediately, as man— ager of the 20th Century Food Store, on Hillcrest, affiliated with the Younglove Grocery wholesale firm, which he has managed for the past two and a half years.

""7 " ENLIST NEW UNITED STATES ARMY ICIAL COUNTY PAPEI U. S. Customs Operations Reviewed For Activians SKIIOKUII BAY POWER LINES GOO—Foot Span 0f Wires Across Little Skookum Broken By Unidentified Craft On Tuesday Afternoon As if the elements and automo- biles aren‘t sufficient threat to un- interrupted service thru power lines, a new disruptor of service was encountered by Public Utility District No. 3 Tuesday afternoon when a low-flying airplane of un- determined identity ripped out a GOO-foot span of wires crossing Little Skookum Bay between the Herbert Nelson and Leland Hud- son homes. Witnesses to the freak mishap to the P.U.D. power lines said a plane flying very low over the water of Little Skookum Bay caught the long stretch of wires at about the middle and snapped them off with such force that the repair crews found both ends of the broken wires thrown clear up on shore. They said the pilot ’of the plane evidently saw his position just too late to clear the wires as his upward zoom evidently caught the wires on the undercarriage of his ship. Had the wires caught on a wing or been ensnared in the propellor the plane probably would have been wrecked, it is believed, but the aircraft evidently came out of the mishap without injury for no lost planes have been re- ported and witnesses to the en- counter with the power lines said the craft flew off evidently un- hurt. However, Miss Jean McDonald, P.U.D. auditor, said she has been unable to trace the plane in her efforts to identify it. She said she placed a call to McChord Field as soon as she was informed of the accident but that officials there had not yet called back today af- ter promising to attempt to learn if a plane from that field had done the damage. Working Clothes Contest Feature Of Garden Picnic Garden Club members will put on their garden work-clothes, and meet at the home of Mrs. Frank Bishop Monday afternoon for a picnic.

After a full week of stagna- tion, the swim class transporta- tion fund was snapped out of its inertia yesterday when one dol- lar donations were contributed by Harold Johnson, Mark Pickens and M. C.’ Zintheo, and a fifty- cent boost was tossed in by FrankieDevlin to raise the total fund on hand now to $30.65. The fund needs approximately $40 to be in the clear. Donations may be left at the L.
