Fads Facts on employment and an- :Populatio n Survey each month at employment will be collected in the the request of the Bureau of Labor Census Bureau's Current Popula- Statistics, U. S. Department of tion Survey in this area during the t Labor. Estimates published by that week of Aug. 19, it was announct gency show that during the first cial fisherman, has an eye for a l:eautiful tree as well. "The yew is the handsomest tree growing on the Olympic Peninsula" he declar- es, and has pretty well proven his point. All of fifty years ago he planted a Pair of yew seedlings. "Properly spaced, no less than 401 fi?et apart, with no other trees to! crowd them, they grow symctri- eally. When about 25 years old, top them slightly, not overdoing the matter and their deep green tfliage will grow densely along the slender drooping branehes." This is his advise for growing perfect spe- (,ilnen8. Not a cone-bearer but included iu Bower's" Cone Bearing Trees of lhe Pacific Coast because it. is likely to be mistaken for one, the sew has small bright red fruit resembling red huckleberries, on the under side of the branehlets. Its rate of growth is about 1 foot a year. It rarely attains a height of eighty feet. Aside from having no cones it difers from the cedar in that it rwmains intensely green through- out the year, never developing the brown areas that disfigure cedars Feriodical!y. Because it is a hard- wood the yew was in demand for axe-handles and wedges in early lagging days. Call on Mr. Johnson when pas- sing Jorstadt Creek, and he will be happy to show you this tree that should be represented when land- scaping the grounds of Northwest homes. Mr. and Mrs. James Cart, neigh- hers of Mr. Johnson's On the shore side of the road spent last week- end with Charles Burnell of Belle- cue, a dearly loved nephew, Whose wife is seriously ill at Providence ltospital. WORD COMES that Dick Schau- fler is holding his own nicely after a scond heart attack. He is being c:ared for at Shelton General. The family look for him back some lime this Week. Gracious Mrs. Urea Stewart who lives on the hill above Lilliwaup 1'. O., a residence she and her hus- band the late Warren Stewart built about 1950, reports that she .nd her youngest daughter Virgi- nia, entertained guests from Olym- pia, Mr. and Mrs. William Can- field, this past weekend. Mrs. Stewart's sons carry on the elec- trical appliance business in Seattle tounded by their father. July 29 ests at the home of Mr. and Mrs. Nell Vance were 1qeil's sister Mrs. Lois Buell and her dmlghter and family Mr. and :Mrs. Don Shipley and son Daniel of Greely Colo. and a niece Mrs. Helen Dexter of Eugene, Ore. All eJoyed a wonderful time boating, 13ehing, digging clams and gath- ering oysters. They fell in , love with VashingLon and Hood Canal. Friday afternoon they :left for Port}and. the Vanees accompany- Jng them. There the Vances visi- ted a nephew and family Mr. and Mrs. Allen Aldrich. They spent three days with friends Mr. and Mrs, Wesley Wood and son Eu- gene. Nell's sister Mrs. Irene Buell of Tale Lake, Calif. was visiting at the Wood home. Sunday 45 rela- tives gathered at Columbus Park for a picnic dinner, the first time they had been together in years. Monday afternon Mr. and Mrs. Wood motored to the Canal bring- ing the Vances home. GUESTS AT THE home of Mr. and Mrs. Jack Johnson Thursday and Friday were Mr. and Mrs. Ha- rold Grafton of Yelm.

The spon- sors are Union City Lodge, Ele- anor Chapter O.E.S. and Canal Court. From John Aaro of Lilliwaup we Icarned that Ayock Point, adjac- ent to but not part of the old Stet- son Resort, formerly included a marshy slew, a gathering spot for wild ducks in migration. He said further that Ayock Point was pur- chased from the County by Pete Sund in-the nineties; next acquiled by Knute Hermes who sold it Lo a Mr. Graves about 1910. Mr. Gra- ves built the first home on the Point living there with his parents until their deaths, after which he married Miss Dorothy Schauland. Mr. Graves widow now lives in a truly modern home iu the Start "White section of the Canal, with her sister Miss Mary Schauland, the latter having retired after a distinguished career as an early day educator: superintendent of teacher-training in Oakland, Calif. "Ayock was named by a local tribe of Indians" explained Miss Schauland "because the Point thrust far oat into the channel, debris was constantly piling up on it driven by high tides with a wind behind them. This untidy condition was manifest in the name selected by the Indians Ay- oek literally translated means "dirty i]0se" Point. THE FIRST COUPLE to build on newly released Ayock Point are :Mr. and Mrs. Carl Hansen whose wide lot commands a view of Mt. Baker. The Hansen's year of great effort has brought almost to completion a fine home with Arizona stone fireplace and super- ior cabinet work. Landowning at Ayock includes sharing rights to a sturdy dock and to a recreation hall. Mrs. Gertrude Fry of erectile, sister-in-law of Mrs, Anne "Webb, who has been in failing health the past two years, passed away at her home there and was entered at the family plot at Sumas, on the Canadian border about 20 miles .north of Bellingham. Mrs. Webb reached Sumas by bus where 'she was joined by other relatives for the last rites. John Lin'dley Fry, the bereaved husband, Anne's only remaining brother, will spend a few days at the L. K. Webb resi- dence before flying back to Cal- ifornia. Mrs. Stella Morken is grieving over having an uninvited guest who ravaged her garden. With care and patience she had nurtur- ed a fine rose garden at her place ir, tEldOne evening she looked 3fhlly (2the tight bubs, plump n-' hedth:v, about to unfold, about to scent the air with fragrance and reward the gardener with their bemty. The next morning, in- credibly, all the rosebuds has van- ished nipped off by an nnwanted guest who left triangular hoof prints in the soil around the bush- es! Unfortunately deer along the Hamma Hamma like rosebuds for breakfast. Speculating as to why the trai- lerfolks return to Hood Canal, we stopped in at one of the trailer parks in north Mason" County to ask a few questions. Perhaps be- cause the majority of the "repea- ters,' eome from smog-bound Cali- fornia (if we dare to call it that) or from parched areas of the U.S., they nearly all mentioned the cool- ness and the greenness and the moisture in the air as physical at- tractions. They enjoy particularly re-meeting friends .made in former years. As hobbies they mentioned rock collecting, fishing, shell hunt- ing, trips to points of regional in- terest, hiking which they combine Witti gathering berries. They like red-huekleberry pie, fresh salmon berries served with brown sugar, and a jelly made from equal parts of salal and Oregon grape, which REVEALS DUS00INE00SS COUP'TO WI00FE "We're down to our last daffodill" this flower grower announced in a long distance call to his pleased wife. "Sold the whole kaboodle to the seed company for a good price!" Long distance is a fine way to share triumphs with friends and loved ones. For business or pleasure calls, it's still the next best to being there. How about sharing some joy tonight, after six, when rates are even lower? PACIFIC NORTHWEST BELL / tired Lieutenant from the San Francisco Fire Dept. spoke warmly of the kind of people who live in the area and of attending local County Fairs and games. Mrs, Bridges who is celebrated in I Palm for her sidll in the Springs pine needle craft, wherein she com- bines Florida's extra long pine needles with Swiss straw and shell trims with dexterity and delicacy in making handbags, pictures and earrings. Another trailer-traveller with a serious hobby is Mrs. N. L. (Jea n) Brown of Seottsville, N. Y. She collects limpets and chitons (both of which we have here) on their journeys along the Atlantic, Pact- fie and Gulf Coast. Mrs. Brown's self-collected collection is mounted scientifically, identified correctly, and is so extensive she is asked to exhibit it and lecture at various universities. The destination of her important collection will be a mu- seulu of her selection. Mr. Brown a retired inventor and engineer with 28 patents (now in rise) to his eredit has designed raih'oad yards throught the world. His pride is the Houston Yard with a capacity of 40,000 ears consider- ed a show plaee in Texas. The Brown's came to visit the Fred Georges of Princeton, Calif. valued friends made in former years. We interviewed Mr. Wynand Viljoen horn in South Africa, pro- vince of Transvaal now engaged in writing a biography of his father General B. J. Viljoen of Boer War fame. Mr, Viljoen came to America when 18 years old and, inspire of the language handicap, mastered wireless telegraphy on the ocean before reaching Ellis Island and obtained his certifi- cate at Dodge's Institute of Tele- graphy. Thereafter, seagoing tele- graphy was his prineipal occupa- tion. He met Mrs. Viljoen while teaching telegraphy to veterans at Letterman Hospital. They built a home in Carmel, Calif. and raised their family there. This couple speak glowingly of Hood Canal scenery and of the outdoor life possible here, dear tb both of them. Time ran out on us so we can only mention the names of other couples who like to re-visit the Canal. From Los Angeles the A. J. Hartman's; from Vallejo the H. C. Wagners; from Palm Springs the Charles Menards; the'Harry 'Woods, the B. J. Jarbers and the Wesley Hardings; from Hemet Major and Mrs. Lee Andrus; from Stockton J. C. Haystett. The Don Hughes drive up from Hollyvood. Mr. and Mrs. Frank Mais from Long Beach and Mr. and Mrs. John Boere from Bellflower. These are representative of the fine peop- le vcho comprise our trailer park clientile. Mr. and Mrs. Delmar Drake of Naples, N.Y. on Canandiagua Lake came by plane to visit their son Cloyse and his family. Mr. Drake is the young pastor at Brinnon Community Church. His mother and he sang a duet "Love Divine" which they first sang together MASON COUNTY'S brush and sauntered ahead of the ed today by Director Guy E. Rain- ear. Cloy.e borrowed a gun and a both of the Census Bnreau region- dog from the nearest resident, treed the cougar and killed it. This incident, you may be sure was thoroughly photographed by the New York visitors. Then they feasted on cougar steaks which they said were excellent, with a flavor somewhere between that of turkey and pork. About 90 adults and a score of grandehildren we:e present at the fourth annual .Brinnon Old Timers Reunion picnic at the Dosewallips State Park. Coming the greatest distance were Mrs. J. L. Clements from Oakland, Mr. and Mrs. Char- les W. Neyhart, Caress del Mar, Calif. Mr. and Mrs. Etest Broder- son drove over from Tacoma where they operate the Mobile Lodge in Spana Park. Mrs. Broderson (Sa- rah) taught both at Hoodsport and Eldon Schools in years past. The Arthur Petersons were there also, Bertha being the youngest daugh- ter of the late George Jameson, xho homesteaded Fulton Creek in 1891, operated the Seabeck Ferry, and built the Brinnon Hotel, since burned to the ground. Mr.'and Mrs. Raymond Lindeke spent Wednesday and Thursday in Victoria stopping at the Empress Hotel with its ultra-English atmos- phere. They .enjoyed the leisurely Canadian way of life and found a walk through Butchart's Gardens most rewarding. Fellow nurseryman Ted Van Vleen of Portland and Hjalmar Larsen of Tacoma inspected the Whitney Gardens this week. For- mer neighbors of Bill and Faye Whitneys' from Camas dropping in for their annual summer visits were Dr. and Mrs. H. W. Anderson, Mr. and Mrs. Sam Archer and Mr. and Mrs. Bill Ashe. From other directions came Mrs. Douglas Blair of Bellingham, Joel Kenney of Wa- Va Point and Mr. and Mrs. Oberg from Port Angeles.
