ANGLE Editor Manager SHELTON DOES ITS BIT FOR THE ARMY Shelton has been doing its best to entertain and care for the soldier boys who have had a brief respite from their duties and a little time to kill around town and the facilities of its schools now in vacation have been turned over to the boys who have enjoyed shower baths after a few days dodging around the roads and in the brush. , The city’s water mains have been in good“ use for the army is particular about the water and foods and the average small city is lacking in water and bath facilities when it comes to an army passing by; the officers and men have ap-l preciated this service, as well as what the ladies! are doing to furnish reading, rest and writing fa-1 cilities. While the maneuvers of the army with its multitude of trucks and equipment have taxedI the highways and county roads as well as the city] services, coming without advance notice or anyl idea of its magnitude, the period of congested traffic has been without accident or annoyance; Shelton agrees that the'army boys are a fine bunch of men and will be glad to have them come this way again, in practice but not the real thing, I 6 APPEAL TO OUR BETTER NATURE The showing of fruit, flower and domestic art at the school gym lastwweekend failed to receive the interest and attendance that it merited be- cause of the great variety of showing and the proof that in quality Mason County has muchtoi be proud of, and those who devote their time to the better and brighter things of life deserve bet- ter reward. In many communities the old-time fair is com- ing back in a’ small way, and not intended to com- pete with the big Western Washington Fair, but its best purpose is to create new ideas and newl things for their own satisfaction, and to prove that Mason County‘ can do all this for the benefit of newcomers. The Garden Club, 4-H Clubs and community Granges all deserve credit for their efforts as in- dividuals to present the community‘in its best light, whether in product of the soil or of wo- men’s handiwork; for whatever the worries or distractions from the better things at least every- body appreciates living among surroundings that appeal to our better nature. PEOPLE DENIED “ABUNDANT LIFE” The government which has encouraged in-l stallment buying until a great system has grown' up reaching probably fifty per cent of all heavy goods purchasing of today, now clamps down on this “American plan’} with severe restrictions af-l ter September first. It is not easy to see the advantage, although. it will be agreed that the dollar-down, dollar-a- week system has gotten many people in deep water, but at least it has made possible the “more abundant life” to a great body of people who oth- erwise must go Without“ many privilegs. This would put a severe and more or less needless “crimp” on business and employment and installment buyers who as a class depend on wag- es and moderate income; who are small if any in- come taxpayers, and whose savings are not likely to swell bonds and savings stamps sales. But if business in the so-cal ed luxury class, such as automobiles, refrigeratOrs and other household conveniences, radiOs, heating units, household goods and the like, and even home'- building, must demand more down with 18 months limit, it will be seen that new hardships will be put upon the people and on business along with higher taxes on everybody; all designed ti “put‘the fear” in the people while no such eco nomies are practiced in any branch of the gov ernment. All of which doesn’t make sense 0} build American confidence. BEWILDERING FIGURES Speaking of figures—and who isn’t these days?—it is seen that unemployment compen- satiOn taxes collected since the law became ef- fective February 1, 1936, through June 30, 1941, ran to a total of over three and one-half billion dollars. Of that staggering sum, a little more than one and one—half billions were paid in bene- fits. The rest of the total went to excess levies, or something, thereby leaving the taxpayer to W0nder.—Bremerton Searchlight. Marine Recruiters S. Marine Corps or the'Mar~ . ine Corps Reserve.

An encouraging amount of in— terest was shown during the spe- cial election for an additional five mill school levy. This levy is ab- solutely necessary for the func— tioning of the grade school, and with nine or ten high school stu-: dents going from this district, the board feels it a duty to aid in their transportation. 32 votes were cast. 32 for and none against. ~ I Austin Sebringi took his mo-g ther and nephew, Walter, to- Mount Vernon for the weekend.

I The Army and Navy both at-l tacked our shores last week, but we are in the dark as to the out-i I come. The Army is probably wandering around on the hill be- tween here and Dewatto in the maze of unmarked roads' that can keep even an old—timer guess- ing. A local girl won the door prize at the last dance which drew a huge crowd of the eating variety. The food, of which there seemedl a great plenty, failed to hold out. i The next dance will be on thel 30th of this month with plenty of cats. The money earned from these dances always goes for a good cause. NO Excuse For Unemployment At This Seasonl There is no need for anyone to be out of employment at this time, according to Alice Helenius, Man- ager of the local State Employ. ment Office. Jobs are plentiful, she says and Wages and workingi conditions are very good in pram-l tically all cases. A representative of the Olympia office can be con- tacted each Tuesday at the Court- house in Shelton. The following jobs are open at the present time. Hop pickers are urgently need- ed! Most of the yards have a heavy crop this year and are pay- ing better wages than they have for some time. Most of the grow— ers furnish cabins and in some instances food supplies can be purchased on the premises. Per- sons interested in picking should contact the Employment Office immediately. , A young lady about 25 years of age who can drive a car and who has had experience in caring forl children pan be placed in a very' fine home as governess. TheI wages are $40 per month includ- ‘iig room and board.
