Norma Bonnie last Full as cows, the O1- a very of many lucky evoted lady. The previous week, Kim Nicldaus, Mike Benson and David Hicks spent "a day on the farm". Our gradesehool population was somewhat depleted when the Fra- ser family moved to Gorst last Sunday. The Frasers occupied the house formerly owned by Donn Marsh. A little excitement was stirred up on Treasure Island early Sun- day eveniug when some live char- coals discarded from the John An- derson place missed the water and inadvertently set fire to the brush on the bank. Fortunately, the con- flagration was soon detected by observant neighbors and the com- bined efforts oF our fire depart- ment and friendly neighbors soon eliminated any danger. Five little girls were made very happy last Wednesday when Mrs. Julius Stock hostessed and chauf- feured a trip to Ocean Shores; just for their enjoyment. Surf play, gicnieig and horlleback riding kept Cathy and Becky Query, Su- sie and Janie K. Pogreba and Geor- gia Clayton fully occupied all day. Going along to lend a helping hand and loving every minute of it was Salli Clayton. MRS. LES SOULE was delight- ed to have niece, 1V[rs. Roy (Dy- rene) Coburn and daughter Gayle drop in on her last Tuesday to spend a few hours. The Coburns have recently moved from Tacoma to Sequim. Visiting with the Orville Kagers and Don Pogrebas from last Tues- day until Saturday were Mrs. S. W. Dresen and daughter Mrs. Gene Killoy. Mrs. Dresen, Mrs. Kager's sister, is from Canby, Ore., while Mrs. Killoy is from Oregon City. The two ladies left their husbands at home to tend to home and work. A"See Washington First" trip took the Howard Seiners' and Walt Claytons into eastern Wash- ington this weekend. Leaving Fri- day evening, the eastward trek took them to Electric City via Ellensburg. Saturday morning the impressive' Grand Coulee Dam was the main attraction and before they returned home to Grapeview Sunday evening they had also vis- ited Dry Falls, Soa:p Lake, Chief Joseph Dam, Reeky Reach Dam (where they "looked a salmon in the eye"), Lake Chelan and the beautiful Ohme Gardens outside of Wenatehee. At last week's regular meeting of the Fair Harbor Grange, Orin Buckingham was appointed to fill the chair of Grange Master left vacant by the unexpected death of Irvin Rowe. Appointed to chair- manship of the Grange Booth at the Mason County Fair this year was Mrs. Clem Hell. Most all of our 4-H Barnacles were busy early this week prepar- ing their projeek entries to be judged and exhibited at the Fair. See you there! SITELTONMAP,0N COUNTY JOURNAL Published in "ChrLod,mo,tow U.KA.", Business Vitality in Mason County Reported Good NEW YORK (Special) .... t?us- iness activity was in high gear in Mason County m the past :,'ear, according to a national economic ]rvey. The county compared well with other comnmnities throughout the country in market vitality. Per- sonal incomes and constm,er buy- ins locally proved to be relative- ly high. These facts emerge from a new natibnwide survey of buying pow- er, conducted by Sal.s Manage- ment. The copyrighted report, 676 pages long, gives e,:onomic data for every area. The volume of business done by Mason County's retail stores was big because incomes were good. NET EARNINGS, h)cal!y, af- ter payment of all personal in- come taxes, amounted to $31,099- :O00, exceeding the previous years '$29,862,000. What this figured out to, on family basis, was found by div- iding the income by the number of households. The average per household was $5,759 as against the former year's $5,531. The gain, 4.1 percent, compar- es well with the United States 1.8 percent. What was done with all this cash? The discretionary part of it, the part that was left after paying the basic living costs, was spent more freely thau m some years. A smaller portion of it was put aside in the form of savings ana a larger portion found its way into the cash registers of the lo- cal stores. RETAIL MERCHANTS in Ma- son County, as a result, had a good year. They ended up with a sales volume of $15,356,000, beating the previous year's $14,- 402,000. The survey shows, for each community, just how much money was spent in its retail stores ana, also, how much its residents could have spent if they had wanted tO. It does this through a "buying power index," a weighted figure that is based on income, popula- tion and sales. Mason County's index is .0078, which means that it is believed capable of producing that per- centage of the nation's total re- taft business. Since less than that was re- corded last year, .0065 percent, it is concluded that full potential nas not yet been reached. The national economy has con- tinued its upward course during the first half of this year, even though it has not quite matchec last year's growth rate, aceorct- ins to early reports. Consmners are still in the market place, vlfich bodes well for 1963. A//yn Group Spends Weekend In Victoria, B.C., Seeing The Sights by Judy Von Osten a real wonderful time.
