In County Set Plans For Opening Days Jr.-& High Registration Set Building Permit Suit To ComeUplnourt The Mason County Commission was given until Friday to issue Gig 14 Months, Accident Victim Renee Nadine Dahman. 14 months old, was killed in an acci- dent at Kanfilche Point last Wed- nesday when a pickup driven by her grandiather, Ernest A. Dab- man, ran over her. Dahman told officers he thought the children were clear of the ve- sicle when he got in to start it. As he prepared to back out, the vehicle rolled forward a short dis- tance, and over Renee, wllo had gotten around in front. Funeral smwiccs were held at 9 a.m. Saturday, in Batstone Fun- eral Home for Rcnee, who was born June 3, 1962 at Port Angeles. Church of the Latter Day Saints was in charge of the service.

The commission, through Pros- ecuting Attorney Byron McClana- hen has filed .an answer to the court action Tuesday, a trial date will be set when the issue comes up in court Friday. TIlE COMMISSIONERS voted Aug. 12 to deny the building per- mit to Norris for a building for tim sale and storage of used auto parts. Norris applied for the per- mit last month, but, action was delayed by the commission while they studied the matter when pro- tests from the area, at the inter- section of Mill Creek Road and Highway 101, were voiced to the commission. In seeking a writ of mandate to force the commission to issue the building permit Jolm Ragen, at- torney for Norris, sad the com- mission's action was arbitrary and capricious and that the commismon had no power to deny the permit without a county zoning ordinance. He said Norris already had a permit to operate a wrecking yard at that location from the'stifle. Excavation Turns Up Apparently Long-Buried Log Washington Corrections Center workmen may have stumbled onto a log which dates back to the days of the great Vashon Glacier which flowed over this region about 10,000 years ago. Ted Knudson. general manager of Mutual Valle Construction Co, said that workmen came upon the log in question while excarating by the new sewage treatment plant recently. TtIE REASON thc log aroused any attention at all was because of its location in the earth, Knutson said. He said that the log, approx- imately 50 feet long and one foot tliroughl Was found right in the middle of "hard pan" soil some 14 to 18 feet below the surface of the earth Showing a anlplc of the log, Knudson said lie didn't think he had ever seen or felt any wood like it. If the log is of the glacier age o there apparently x .ren't cnough mineral deposits in the soil to pet- rify the wood. It has remained in its apparcnt natural state. UNITE|) STATES Geological Survey technicians in Seattle have been notified of the find. If the information on the wood relayed to them has any possibilities of being of the Vashon Glacier age, a radio carbon analysis could be taken on it to determine more positive data on the Vashon Gla- cier phenomenon Now we will have to wait for word from thc geological technici- /tlll$. 0ols chzst- Mary e first to open Open the first SChool district for students element- school P.m.

SEATTLE (Special) -- Simpson Timber Company will announce Thursday it has completed ar- rangements to invest $21 million m the expansion and modeYniza- lion of its wood products plants in Arashington, Oregon and Calif- ornia. ACCORDING to President C. H. Bacon, Jr. this largest investment in the history of the Company will result in $10 million being spent on new construction this year. Another $11 million is to be invested in lumber plywood chem- ical and woodfiber produeUon within three years. Major expenditures for 1963 are in lumber and veneer installations at Shelton. with additional ply- wood and veneer improvements scheduled for Albany, Lyons and Idanha. Orc, and Eureka and Kla- math, Calif. ALL-WOOD BUILDINGS under construction in Shelton will f()l one of the largest forest products installations il the U.S. One plant alone--designed for veneer pro- duction -.stretches a quarter of a mile and covers five and a half acres. Extensive enlargement of dry hnnber manufacturing facilit- ies will increase Simpson kiln ca- pacity beyond 91 million bd. ft, annu;illy at Shelton. Bacon said the Company's em- phasis on modernized production will result in closing its Portland Plyiock plywood plant on Aug. 31. This oldest plywood plant in the industry was built in 1905 and has been operated by Simpson since 1956. The closure will affect 340 employees, of whom a number are eligible for Simpson retiremen pensions. Belfairite ,Dies In The first Cyclone job. called a{   _ safeguard, contains no barbed wire i A"dPnI'N'I, on top, but "is made out of real nlz1m1mlllm heavy stuff" said Marvin Beck, Dale C. Lincoln, 27 Belfair, Cyclone foreman He commented'  lwas killed Monday while loading that each 50-foot roll of wire to be used on this fence weighs ap- gravel at a pit near the North ]proximately 760 pounds. He said Shore Road. that the inside fence will be about 8.590 feet long. THE OUTSIDE Cyclone, called an invincible, will be a different story concerning the use of barbed wire. Six strands of barbed wire will be strung on the victory arms whidh will adorn the top of the lenee. But that's not all. Between the two victory arms will be rol- led barbed wire called a concer- tina. Sandwfched betxeen the two Cyclones will be the electric prox- imity. IL is-not<the type thai'would electrocute a person, but rather would send warming signals to the control building and galard towers when "a body mass gets so close to the fence". Ted Knudson. gen- eral manager for Mutual Valle, said The control building is located on one end of the fence. Officers said he was loading gra- vel with a crawler loader when a tree on a bank about 20 feet above him fell knocking him off the tractor After he fell. the tractor ran over him, rushing him. The accident occured about 3;45 p.m. Monday. Funeral services for Mr. Lin- coln will be at 2:30 p.m. today in the Belfair Community Church with key. Milton Gire officiating.
