m e e e Boatmen operating vessels in an unsafe manner may now be ordered back to shore by Coast Guard boarding otficers under the Federal Boa! Safely Ac! of 1971. I he new law, which was signed by President Nixon August I Ith, gives (7oasl (;uard Boarding Officers the authority lo direci a boat operator to lake whatever immediate and reasonable steps are necessary for the safety of those on board a vessel. In the case of a vessel being operated in a manner which creates an especially hazardous condition to life, this would include, "directing the operator to return to mooring and remain there until the situation creating the hazard is corrected." Hazards which would warrant such action would be boats being used without sufficient lifejackets or firefighting devices or boats being used in an overloaded condition. Rear Admiral Joseph J. McClelland, Commander of the Thirteenth Coast Guard District, said, "The purpose of the new authority is not to inconvenience or harass boatmen but to prevent serious accidents before they occur and to save lives." Boatmen who fail to comply with the directions of the boarding officer may be cited for operating a vessel in a negligent manner so as to endanger life, limb or propety and may be arrested.

Returning lettermen who received their equipment include Ray Krumpols, Neal White, Terry Knight, Bob Crume, Tracy Armstrong, Dean Medcalf, Rob Settle, Don Nesth, Doug Long, Mark Wittenberg, Brad Oling, Shane Brooks, Bill Gray, Mike Sheetz, Duane Makoviney, and Tom Brigham. The number of those turning out is 51 and expected to climb. Coach Stark is extremely proud of the number of players turning out from the Hood Canal area. "There are five or six turning out from there and that is the best we have ever done." Stark said. When asked about the team's chances this year he said it all depends mostly on attitudes. "If we can capture the same attitude we had last year we have a good chance." Coach Stark also said this league is getting "pretty tough". He said Tumwater has to be the number one contender because they're getting everybody back but ''whenever 1 make predictions" he said, "1 leave us out because I believe we have to feel we can win every game and we have the talent to do it." Coach Stark also maintains North Thurston and Centralia should he tough with Chehalis a question mark due to a new coach. "We lost five offensive linemen to graduation last year, but we have enough man power to fill those gaps. What we need now is a middle linebacker," Stark continued. Stark also wanted to voice the competency of his staff assistants. "They're really underrated" he said, "they work hard to help do the job necessary for a good football team". Coaching this year are: Bill Brickert, defensive backs and offensive ends; Ran Ellis, centers and linebacks; Paul Johnson, offensive tackle, defensive ends; Mike Sims, offensive guards and defensive tackles; Fred Aberhamson, J.V.'s and scouting; Harlem Bittenveld, high school Scoutin~g Co-ordinator and freshman coach No matter who wins the league crown this year it is certain that Shelton football fans are going to see some competitive football played by their home team with great prospects yet to he cultivated such as Ace LeGault, plagued by injuries last year, and a new prospect named Barry Gesche. Shelton may just end up at the top of the heap.
