CR 5o~'774- Living in the Northwest can be more fun as Orville and ALice Kinney proved after spending one day on a trip with Virgil and Margurite Kinney to Mt. Rainier. Two feet of snow at Paradise combined with warm sunshine and a busload of kids *all added up to one grand time for snowball fights. The group, joined by Mr. and Mrs. Errtie Runyon, went on to Westport. The trailers were headquarters for the three-day stay that gave the ladies time to beachcomb for rocks and driftwood and go wading in the surf. The men found the cloudy weather just right for going out on the charter boats early in the day and returning by noon with a limit of salmon for everyone on the six-man boat, including the skipper. Virgil and Margurite, after a short stay visiting relatives in Shelton, will continue their tour of the country that started near Overran, Nevada, through Florida and on to the Calgary Stampede in Canada. A wish for a speedy recovery is sent on the warm rays of the sun to those who have been confined to home and hospital by illness. Mrs. R. J. Bisson is at Madigan Hospital, Ward 19A, Room 6, for an adjustment of the pacemaker that has been so successful with her heart condition. She has been undergoing surgery with the possibility of having two pacemakers surgically implanted to eliminate her distress. Notes and cards from friends would be enjoyed during her stay in the hospital. Mrs. Mary Kiezling has not been well and is undergoing tests that we hope will soon be over and have Mary home taking care of the flowers in her yard. She is at 22799-26th Ave. South, Des Moines, Wash. 98016 and would like to hear from her neighbors. Mrs. Dorothy Spangler is home after surgery but finds it a bit difficult to answer the phone calls from the many friends concerned about her recovery. With the doctor's orders for her to stay in bed, Dorothy said that calls at a later date would be very much appreciated and enjoyed. A visit to Victoria, B.C. could have been delayed for Mrs. Selma Furchert with Tom and Carol Taylor when the ferry Coho was unable to take all the cars, including theirs, that were waiting for the early morning trip from Port Angeles. They decided to park the car and become foot passengers on the ferry. In Victoria they rode the double deck bus for what Selma said was "a teriffic time." They saw the landmark homes, parks, undersea gardens, and the Empress hotel. A walk of many blocks was made to shop at the huge Hudson Bay Store for gifts to bring home. Later they realized that in all the gift buying, they had not bought a thing for themselves. Another visit to Victoria, B.C. was made by Pat and Bill Spangler with Bob Millard taking bikes and packboards as a part of getting ready to be counselors this week during the trail camp sessions. The trip was planned to drive to Port Angeles to board the ferry with the bikes and then return home on the Princess Margarite. With the use of their packs, they were able to spend the nights camping out-of-doors in the parks. Pat said the parks were beautifully kept with a busy maintenance routine of garbage cans at each site emptied promptly at 6 a.m. and all facilities cleaned twice daily. Hot water was plentiful and a welcome part of their visit. The pride shown in the park facilities was illustrated clearly when everyone showed concern for one of the adjoining varnished picnic tables being accidentally damaged by spilled gasoline and a fire. With no parking problems, could stop anywhere or follow the tours of the Tallyhos. The people would in turn watch the three travelers calling that "you fellows make quite a picture with your packs and helmets." As it is unusual for girls to ride bikes in this city, Pat felt unique and did not remove her helmet to correct the impression of the fellows bit. Best wishes to Barbara and Chuck McEwen on their graduation from Western Washington College this year. They are now looking forward to teaching positions.

With teaching position interviews on a schedule, Barbara had one day free and spent that in a visit at the home of her parents, Mr. and Mrs. Robert Schillinger, and also spent some time with her dad during his recovery. Mr. Schillinger has had bone surgery on his back and is doing very well, but is not yet able to drive the car. All his neighbors wish him well with a speedy recovery, and that kind of a wish is a sure cure. Luck must have been the third rider with Ken Haddenham and David Maiden in what could have been a serious accident when their bike malfunctioned and flipped as they were coming out of the driveway. Injuries for David were skinned knees and bruises. Ken had to have seven stitches for the deep gash in his foot caused by the impact of the buddy pedal, and he has a choice assortment of scrapes and bruises on his hip and arm. Both boys are fine and out rambling around the neighborhood. One thing noted is that Ken is now wearing boots rather than tennis shoes while riding his bike. Tim and Sue Brown are so happy to announce the arrival of tiny Jeffry Scott on July 11 (a 7-1 1 one). The little boy measured 21 " long, and weighed 8 lbs. 14 oz. Maternal grandparents Mr. and Mrs. D. C. Malone and paternal grandparents Mr. and Mrs. Kenneth Brown join in the warm welcome to the new grandson. Tim and Sue have made their present home in Hampton, Virginia while Tim is stationed at Langley Air Force Base, and have enjoyed the recent two-month visit of Mrs. Malone. This week is full of excitement for Mr. and Mrs. D. C. Malone ~vith the expected visit of Dr. and Mrs. W. J. Koch and two children, Jeffry and Gretchen. Dr. Koch has been .in California for four weeks doing research work for the Shell Oil Company, and will visit here before returning to their home in Houston, Texas. Mrs. Koch is the former Elaine Malone. Mr. and Mrs. Orville Kinney were the guests of Mr. and Mrs. Earl Gibbons for the scenic tour of the Seattle City Light's Skagit project for a full day of happiness and enjoyment. The tour started northeast of Seattle at Newhalem, Washington with a film shown by the Seattle light company, then the tour group visited the nearby gardens and gorgeous waterfalls. Many interesting places were included in the tour with the boat excursions of one half hour on Diablo Lake and the powerhouse, then by boat to Ross Dam. The railway ride to Diablo Dam had a magnificent view that made cameras and binoculars a necessity.

B. 575 CR 5-2020 Mason County Journal Thursday, August 19, 1971 ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~l~~~~ll~l~~~~~~~l~~l~~~l~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~i~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ By LOU DONNELL ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~i~~~~~~~~~~~~~~i~~~~~~~~~~~~~~I~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~u~i~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~l~~~~~~ Summer camp season is almost over and there have probably been thousands of children who have come to our area to spend a week or two at one of the camps surrounding Belfair. I doubt if any of their parents, offering last minute instructions, ever offered the advise I've given our children when they've gone off to camp. But then, probably none of their parents had ever run into the kind of situation I found myself in during my last week as a camper at Camp Sealth on Vashon Island when I was a Camp Fire Girl. The year before we moved to Mason Lake Cindy was in a Camp Fire group in Seattle. Several of the girls, including Cindy, had signed up for a week at Camp Sealth and because I was the only mother who had been a Camp Fire Girl and a camper at Sealth as a girt, I was invited to give a little talk at the final spring meeting to which mothers had been invited. "Do you have any advice to offer the girls?" i was asked. I suppose they were expecting me to remind them to use lots of sun tan lotion when swimming or to write a few letters home during their stay or to follow camp rules and mind their counselors, but my advice was a plea... "If they have a picnic supper while you're there and serve caramel apples, DON'T stick your fork into the apple to eat it." Everyone looked at me with concern; maybe 1 should move my chair into the shade for a bit? So I told them about the only day I didn't enjoy of the many I'd spent at Sealth. For several summers 1 had spent one week at Sealth, always accompanied by Evelyn (Greene) Rowell, a member of the same Camp Fire group led by Mrs. Sam DeMoss. The summer we were fifteen, we decided we'd like to spend two weeks at camp and since our parents couldn't afford the extra week, we applied for jobs as dishwashers to earn our way. We were accepted. There were two other dishwashers besides Evelyn and me and between the four of us were divided all the plates, glasses, serving dishes, silverware, and pots and pans used for feeding the 300 to 400 hungry girls. My assignment was all the silverware and, if I remember correctly, the milk pitchers from the 20 or 30 tables. After each meal, as the other campers ran off to their first fun class of the day, or to their cabin to spend Happy Hour after lunch writing letters or visiting with their b~ddies, we four dishwashers headed for the kitchen and spent a couple of hours each meal with our arms immersed in soap suds. Imagine our delight one night when we arrived at the dining hall to find that everyone was having a picnic outside that night.., with paper plates, yet! Of interest to me was the fact that only one utensil per camper was available, a fork. No knives or spoons to wash that night ! We were gleeful as we anticipated getting through our jobs in less than half an hour that night. My happy feeling even lasted through dessert, a sticky caramel apple which didn't have a stick in it for easy handling, and I joined the rest and held it with my fork stuck in one end. It wasn't until I was in the kitchen putting the forks in the sink that 1 realized what was in store for me. The other three dishwashers got through in no time but it was way after dark by the time I finally got through cleaning the gooey caramel from between each fine of every blasted fork. That's why my standing advice to kids leaving for camp is a little different from that of most parents.
