That the move to the new site was a wise decision is vividly reflected in the 50( gain in attendance over any peak year in the past. That attendance will increase in the fu- ture is a reasonable assumption considering that future improvement in the fair is also a reasonable assumption. Expansion is sure to be one of the improve: ments as addional buildings already planned are added to the present complex of fair structures. The three permanent buildings in which the fair made its debut in its new home last weekend were all that time and finances allowed this year. All who worked--'and there was much work done--to make this 1963 fair come off on schedule on the new site deserve high acclaim, especially Clive Troy, president, and Carl Izett, who came out of retirement to plan and super- vise construction of the new buildings. Mason County was most fortunate to have a man of Mr. Izett's capabilities willing to make his talents available on this substantial community project. To him particularly the people of this area owe a huge vote of appreciation. TARDY AGTiON GOSTLY TO LUMBER Dear Bill : I thought Mr. Holt was a little unfair in his letter in the Journal of August 22. where he criticized the management of P.U.D. 3 by comparing our rates with Lewi County PUb. where circumstances are entirely different. I agree with some of his state- ments. Our PUb is in a healthy financial position, it does have substantial cash reserves, and i approaching completion of the re- habilitation of district properties. But the same mangagement which Mr. Holt is criticizing is respon- sible for getting our PUb into such a favorable financial condi- tion. Mr. Holt implies that the two PUDs mentioned are very similar when in fact the mrcumstances are greatly different. Lewis Coun- ty has approximately twice as many customers. Lewis County PUb has a much more compact district with several towns to serve while Mason County Dis- trict has one town and several scattered, thinly populated areas with long feeder lines required to reach the communities even un- derwater cables in at least two cases were required. These out- stretched communities are ex- pensive to serve and the refusal el the private power company to serve them. even at very high rates, was one of the major rea- sons that Mason County is now served by P,U.D.s, There is also a great difference in the type of power users in the two counties. 'iason County has a large number of part-time or summer users who pay only the minimum for most of the ,gear while Lewis County has a prepon- derance of heavy load customers. Mr. Holt, in his well written letter, showed himself to be quite knowledgeable on the subject o rates and I therefore believe he would have given the impression of much greater fairness had he admitted that Lewis County com- mercial rates have been about 30% higher than Mason and their in- dustrial rates about 50 higher. Thus it will still take considerable Legal Publications NO. 3413 NO'I'ICE OF IIEARING FINAL ]RE- PORT AND I'ETITION FOR DISTRI- BUTION IN THE SUPERIOR COURT OF THE STATE OF WASHINGTON FOR MASON COUNTY IN PROBATE IN THE MATTER OF.

Washing- ton. and tilat order of defanlt and judg'lnent of divorce on the grounds of desertion and son-support as prayed reducing before those brackets gc loxvn to our rates, While Mason P.U.D. 3 is ap- proaching completion of the re- habilitation of its properties, it is also approaebing, in the immediate future, further expansion at consi- derable cost. so it vouia seem that ;he management has followed the wise course, for our district ana provided some surplus funds on a reasonable rate structure which will save the district thousands oz 3ollars in future interest. I am glad Lewis County has reached the position to where it can lower rates substantially. 1 am looking forward with pleasure to the time when our PUb will be able logically to do likewise. We have been fortunate over the years, and up to date. to have had such fine. honest men as PUb Commissioners and managers, ded- icated to the task of seeing that the PUD gives the best possible service, and I am sure that when the right time arrives the commis- sioners will be very happy to re- duce as low as possible because the P.U,D. is a non-profit organi- zation and must pass the savings on to its customers. Mr. Holt might be in,crested to Inow that PUb 3 has already cut rates more than two million dol- lars a year. If each one of us cus- tomers had to have our light bills refigured at the rate the power company was charging when the PUb was established our light bills would be about three times what Introduction of a Congressional bill to extend the "Puer- to Rican" amendment to the Jones Act, voted first by the last Congress, comes none-too-soon. In fact, it may be so late now that some of the benefits to Northwest lumber shippers may be lost, at the very least temporarily suspended. Congresswoman Julia Butler Hnsen, instrumental in getting the "Puerto Rican" amendment passed originally, has introduced the bill seeking its extension. The original act was of an experimental nature, with a one-year limita- tion, exempting the domestic lumber industry from the Jones Act requirement that all shipments of goods from one port to another be in American vessels so that Northwest lumber might compete realistically with British Columbia mills for the Puerto Rican lumber market. The "experiment" proved conclusively that American lumber shippers could do so, for under provision of the exemption 6.5 million board feet of Northwest lumber have been sold to Puerto Rico in 1963 so far, compared to none during the previous two years. The need for continuing this exemption has been attested to in repeated letters received by Mrs. Hanson and other Washington State congres- sional members from state lumber companies. But the original "Puerto Rican" amendment is due to expire October 23 and the Simpson Timber Company, one of the Northwest lumber shippers which has taken full ad- vantageof the law, has been advised by the Maritime Ad- ministration that lumber shipments to Puerto Rico on for- eign vessels will be illegal, unless actually loaded and under way before the expiration date. This means: that efforts to sell any more Northwest lumber in thg!:Puerto Rican market this season will be sus- pended until an extension of the law is obtained. Many weeks of negotiation are required to line up transportsion and or- ders and the Oct. 23 expiration date is now too near.to make further contracts feasible. Thus a suspension, and a result- ing loss of sales, in the Puerto Rican lumber market is forced on American lumber shippersuntil such time as Mrs. Hansen s eXtension bill is acted upon. ' : The one year shipping privilege extended to American lumber manufacturers wishing to serve the Puerto Rican market has not yet been given a full year's benefit. The shipments to Puerto lico by West Coast mills was a promising beginning and deserves an extension to develop the progress al- ready made in the far--too-brief period. Another Congressional act which should be carried to culmination is the joint effort of Senators Maganson of Washington and Jordan of Idaho to amend the Taxiff Act of 1930 which would require the marking of lumber as to country of origin. ! The amendment, passed by both houses, is now subject to action by a joint House-Senate conference committee to iron out minor differences in the two versions. It could be jeopardized by a statement made by the president of the National Association of Home Builcers to the effect that marking lumber would result in higher rices to consumers. This. is a thoughtless remark from such a high office because all lumber produced in both Canada and 'the United States is by law required to be marked for grade and other things already. The simple addition of the words "Made in Canada" would add nothing to the cost. Such things as this are characteristic of the way the American lumber industry has been tor- [(nrsi]dtl,veemplaint, will be entered podded in every effort it h, as made to get eauaI sig;7h':-.

[ olyhlIa, wLii/,th 8/u'", / County Moves To Obtain Right-Of-Way The Mason County Commission Monday instructed the County En- gineer and Prosecuting Attorney to go ahead with whatever action is necessary to obtain right-of-way on the two remaining pieces of property involved in the relocation and uprovement of the North Shore Road. Jim Lietch. who has been doing right-of-way work for the county told the commissloners that ag- reements had been completed for 57 of the 59 pieces of property in- volved and asked commmsion ap- proval to start condemnation pro- ceedings in the remaining two cases if necessary. The commission turned the matter over to the engineer and prosecuting attorney I or action. PLATS FOg Lynwood Beach Agate Beach and Nahwatzel Es- tates were approved. Also approved were emergency appropriations for the Sheriff's of- fice and juvenile probation office. A supplemental budget for $3.- 000 for the Mason County Fair was approved. The funds went into the building program and were some from the state which were not anticipated when the budget was made up last year. 52 Dogs Entered In Treehound Go we now pay. The fact that Lewis county At Sohafer Park P.U.D. was lowering rates nearly a quarter of a million dollars a Fifty-two dogs were entered in year while at the same time in the Western Washington Tree- the adjoining county of Thurston hound Association's field trial at the power company was asking the State for permmsion to raise to where the company would charge its Thurston County custo- mers alone an additional quarter of a million dollars shows dramati- cally how much better off people are who are served by P.U.D.s than are those who have to buy their electricity from a private power company. Very truly yours Charles R. Savage, Master Mason County Pomona Grange City Approves Zoning Change For. Duplexes The Shelton City Commission Tuesday night approved a zoning variance to permit the construc- tion of two duplexes at Seventh and Grant. The action was taken on the recommendation of the planning commission which recommended that a conditional exception for the northalf of Block 14, Need- ham and Day's Addition, be grant- ed to Darrell Welsh. Welsh had requested that the entire block be rezoned from res- idential i to residential 2 to per- mit the construction of multi-unit housing. THE PLANNING commission recommendation was the result of a compromise after objections from neighboring property owners were voiced at a planning commis- sion hearing. A zoning variance was also ap- proved for the Moll Chevrolet Co. John Bariekman, representing property owners in Beverly Heights, told the commissioners that in a meting of the residents there after a meeting with the city to discuss replacement water mains, the residents had been of the unanimous opinion that the replacement of the deteriorated mains was the responsibility of the city, it is 60 feet, there will not be stallation of two lights at Calla- nan Park. CITY ENGINEER Pat Byrne asked that the city attorney check into a right-of-way problem which is holding up a 'building permit to Ted Wittenberg. Byrne said there is a street, which was an old county road, running through the three lots on which the building is planned, and, that the city has right-of-way through adverse possession from use over a number of years. There is no record of the width of the right of way, he said, and that if iris 60 feet. there TiE not be enough area left to meet zoning re- strictions for lot size for construc- tion of a home.

It Was That Identical Name Problem Again Identical names, the bane of news reporters and often the source of embarrassment to inno- cent people, has popped up to plague a Shelton man. In a recent police court action here, an Olympia man forfeited $10 on a charge of being drunk in public. His name is Harry Flet- cher, his address is Route 6, Olym- pia. But Harry Fletcher. Route 1. Shelto., an abstainer and strong opponent of alcoholic drinking, has been suffering for his namcsake's transgression as acquaintances give him the business. So, to keep the recor'd  straight, Shelton's Harry Fletcher is not the Harry Fletcher referred to in the report of police court action carrie in the Journal two weeks ago.
