esuJ epo The Mason County Fair's first rodeo drew good crowds despite rain which dampened the area. The grandstands were nearly full Saturday as rain fell during part of the time. Sunday, which saw the sun come out during much of the time, drew a crowd which overflowed the bleacher seats to watch the bull riding, bareback riding, calf roping, barrell racing, team roping, novice bare back riding and wild cow milking action. The rodeo was held in a new arena which was constructed this past summer adjacent to the grandstands. Stock was provided for the rodeo by Dan Greene of Mabton. Providing comedy and thrills as he attracted the big bulls away from the riders was clown Donny Green, a 17-year-old Spokane youth. Bill Brown, who had promoted the idea of a rodeo with the Fair Board, and had put many hours in getting it arranged and the arena constructed was rodeo manager. Topping the number of entries and the event with the largest purse, $1,860, was the team roping event which saw more than 40 contestants compete. Winning the event and going home with $263.42 each for their efforts were father and daughter team of Jodi and Jim Hockett. Other platings in the event were Jack and J. D. Sherman, second; Troy Perkins and Tom Norton, third; Jim and Gary tIockett, fourth; Joe Carlson and Jack Sherman, fifth and Steve Schnable and Leland Gibbs, sixth.

In Restaurant Rest Room Mrs. Addle M. Schaufler, 75, Hidden ltaven Trailer Court, Shelton, was found dead in a rest room at the Timbers Restaurant Monday afternoon. The Shelton Police Department, which investigated, said they received a call shortly after 5 p.m. that a woman had been found in the rest room and was believed to be dead. They stated employees of the restaurant investigated after noticing the woman did not come out of the rest room for some time. At the same time the call was received from the restaurant, the dispatcher was taking a call from (,eorge Frisk who was reporting Mrs. Schaufler missing.

County ASCS offices throughout the United States have been chosen as information centers to answer questions from all citizens on President Nixon's Executive Order which is designed to stem inflation and strengthen the national economy. The Thurston-Mason County ASCS Office is receiving official answers to questions concerning the President's action, and any person in Mason County who wants or needs precise information should get in touch with the County Office, Ragan said. The Thurston-Mason County ASCS Office is located at 221 Courthouse Annex in Olympia and is open Monday thru Friday. The telephone number is 943-7200, Extension 465. In addition the Mason County ASCS Office located at Kneeland Center is open Thursdays only from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. The phone number is 426-6672. The offices are staffed by A. K. Wagner, County Executive Director, and Superio Five young Shelton men, who are being held in Mason County Jail on drug charges were remanded from Justice Court to Superior Court when they appeared in Justice Court before Judge Glenn Correa last week. The five were Timothy Hoyt, 20; Carl Dodge, 23; Daniel Batchellor, 30; Bruce McCarty, 18, and David Bralley, 19. They are all charged with one or more counts of possession and delivery of a controlled substance. Judge Correa refused to reduce bail or release any of the five on personal recognizance. Bail has been set at $2,000 each. They are the only ones of some 20 persons arrested by the Mason County Sheriff's Department earlier this month'~ who have not been able to post bail to get out of jail. "~: Four of the juveniles who had been arrested in the series of arrests appeared in juvenile coart last week. A 17-year-old boy, who was found guilty of aiding and abetting delivery of a controlled substance was placed on probation until he is 18 years old and ordered to pay $50 into the current expense fund of the county with the money to be earmarked for drug control work. A 16-year-old boy, charged with delivery of a controlled substance was found guilty and disposition of his case was deferred three weeks to allow for further investigation by the Juvenile Probation Department. Another 16-year-old boy, who SUMMER CLEARANCE Katherine Gifford, Clerk. "Ours and all ASCS offices throughout the nation, will function as information centers in all locations outside of highly urbanized areas," Ragan said. County ASCS offices are not to handle complaints or appeals, he said. They will serve only to provide official information. Persons with complaints will registerthem with the most convenient district or sub-district office of the Internal Revenue Service. "Neither will interpretations or guesses be made by ASCS county office people. They will answer only those questions for which they have been supplied answers. If they don't know the answer to a specific question, they will say so. If a member of the public wants the county office to obtain an answer, the question will go by phone or mail to the nearest IRS district office," Ragan said. Normal function of ASCS county offices is to administer farm action programs of the U. S. Department of Agriculture on the local level. County committee Chairman Ragan said ASCS service to farmers will continue without interruption. "Our county office people welcome the opportunity to serve their country and are happy to make the extra effort in this crucial period," he said.
