PORTLAND. 1 Au To Schools , 325 As County's This Past Term Financial Share Borne By State Rises to 62.9% from 54.40., During 1940-41 Term;' Full 25 Cents Paid Increased benefits to Mason County school districts through the state’s complete fulfillment of school districts is readily seen in the county superintendent’s an- nual report, released last Week. During the 1940-41 term the fstate, for only the second time since the law was passed in the early 19305, paid the full 25‘ cents per pupil day attendance which that law stipulates, in fact, even kicked in a bit extra this past ‘ term with a 25.4 cent daily remit- : tance. l The result was that Mason lCounty schools received a total of $162,535.02 last term from the l state’s current school fund against a total of only $140,828.63 during 1 the 1939-40 term, Supt. J. E. Mar- ,tin’s annual report reveals. Dis— trict 309 (Shelton), largest of the districts included within this re- port, received $107,797.57 from the 1 state current school fund last term against $90,991 in the previous year, when the rate of state daily attendance remittance averaged about 23.5 cents. State Shoulders Heavier Burden It is interesting to note by com- parison, too, that the state‘s con- tribution to school district fin- ances increased from 54.4 per cent of the total school district reve- nue in 1939-40 to 62.9 per cent this past term as the result of this complete fulfillment of the general fund obligation. Those percentages both would be higher if it were possible to segregate state from county and district monies which are lumped eous and transfers from other funds in the annual report. Mis- cellaneous sources contributed t $17,038.66 and transfers from oth- er funds contributed $16,316.55 to— ward the total ,Mason, County school income of $276,935 this past term and a large part of each came from state sources and so would further up the per cent of state aid to county school dis- tricts. In the previous year these two figures respectively were $22,- 069.67 and $8,596.19. Miscellan- eous income would be derived from ‘sale of school property, rent of school property, etc., while income from transfers from other funds would be such items as grazing , fees, sale of state timber and tide 'lands, etc., diverted into school finances. . Equalization Cut Drops The state's portion of school financing also includes, of course, ‘ the county equalization fund, which dropped somewhat this past term to $11,407.67 against the pre- vious year’s total of $16,692.71. Thus the state put up a known total of $173,942.69 for 1940-41 school operation in Mason County (plus whatever part of the mis— cellaneous and transfer funds which were of state origin (while in the 1939-40 term this contri- bution totalled $157,521.34. Against the state’s money, coun- ty-raised funds used in financing the county school system totalled $69,637.92 during the term just closed against a total of $78,- 271.98 in the preceding term. School district taxes produced ' $61,200.03 of the $69,637 total last year with $8,437.89 in general county funds (the county being supposed to pay fiVe cents per pu- pil day attendance to each school district) rounding out the total. At this point it would be appro- priate to mention that the county equalization fund paid by the state which was mentioned earlier is a fund to make up any deficit be- low five cents per day which any county is unable to raise with a three mill tax on its total assess- ed valuation. Wivell On Committee To Arrange Fair Sale H. M. Wivell of the Wivell Dairies, Inc., of Shelton has been named to a committee in charge of making arrangements for the annual sale of purebred Jersey cattle at the Puyallup Fal!‘ grounds September 25. About 50 head of cows and heifers already have been enter‘ ed in the sale, it is reported. Other members of the committee include Cliff Henning, East Stan- wood; Harry Allen, Monroe; Tom Fishback, Chehalis; and Stacey Stone, Sequim.

The bells ring out, and the doors open wide, of little red school houses and many-roamed buildings . welcome back to so To Guard Students Safety Police Chief Andy Hansen, sec- onded heartin by Sheriff Gene and State Patrolman Cliff Aden, today asked the co- operation of parents and motor- ists to promote observance of school—crossing lanes so children will not be endangered when they return to school tomorrow, and in some cases today. The’three “arms of the law” urge motorists to observe care- fully all safety warning signs which are placed near all schools. Reckless driving charges face motorists who fail to observe safety warnings and safety-pa— trol workers. The schoolboy patrol will be on the job to direct traffic at street crossings used by pupils of the Lincoln and Bordeaux grade schools with what holdover mem- bers of last year’s patrols who are still in school. The final personnel of the 1941-42 patrols will be determined within a cou- ple of weeks. Traffic directions of the school- boy patrol are as binding upon motorists as those of any other police officer insofar as the con- trol of traffic is concerned, Po- lice Chief Hansen pointed out, so their instructions to drivers should be heeded explicitly. Police courts have on many occasions upheld the schodl‘boy’, patrolmen on charges filed agaplst‘ motorists failing to heed "ith'en’i and have assessed fines andjail terms. is.“ There has never been a"/‘traffic accident in Shelton where). Jand when the schoolboy patrol has been on duty since its organiza- tion a dozen years ago. “Parents shodld send ."their children to school early enough so they will not have to run to school," Police Chief Hansen urg- ed. “Children who are running to school because they are late create a serious problem \for they forget all the rules of safety.” 2 OCCUPANTS or SAME CAR FINED IN HIT-AND-RUN CASE I Two hit-and-run charges grow- ing out of one traffic accident and involvmg occupants of one car formed a court oddity heard by Justice M. C. Zintheo Satur- day. I It happened like this: A car bearing a Kitsap County license sideswiped a car driven by Horace. J. Skelsey of Shelton a .few minutes after midnight Friday morning as the Skelsey car stopped on the Purdy Canyon cutoffbefore entering the Olym- pic highway, the Kitsap car turning off the Olympic highway to enter the cutoff road. state Patrolman Cliff Aden. summoned to the scene, started up the cutoff in pursuit of the hit-and-run car and discovered it over the bank along the Skoko- mish River a mile farther along. He arrested the driver, Nelse W. Burch, 41, of Bremerton, and released his woman companion, Helen Schmidt, 33, also of Brem- erton. After questioning Burch, however, Aden learned that the woman had been driving at the time their car hit the Skelsey car but had surrended the wheel to Burch shortly afterward and he had been at the wheel when the machine went over the bank. So Aden arrested the Schmidt woman, too. and tried both on hit-and-run charges before Jus- tice Zintheo. The Woman was fined $100 and court costs of $4.70 and was denied the right to ap- ply for a driver’s license for a year, she not having one at the time. ~ Burch was fined $100, of which $55 was suspended. plus court costs and his license, revoked for a year, and was instructed to pay for the damages done to the Skelsey car. County Prosecutor Frank Heuston tried _the double case. Don Daniels of Seattle was ar- rested and incarcerated in the county'jail on a traffic charge yet to be made after the Seattle man’s arrest Sunday for parking across the Navy Yard highway near the Waterwheel district. Dan- iels has not been tried yet.

SHELTON SHEET METAL WORKS IS STARTED TODAY City Now Boasts Best Equipped Sheel Metal Shop On The Peninsula With. building construction com- pleted, undainstallation of mach— any .almost finished, Shelton’s latest industrial plant, the Shei- ton Sheet Metal Works is now bpen forwibusiness. ‘ ' Martin J. Hart, proprietor of the new plant, announced that he is now accepting jobs. The sheet metal works is hous- 'ed in a 32x50.,frame structure situated on south. third street near the Mason County Creamery. The building is of onenstory construc- tion with a full concrete floor and concrete foundations through- out. The roof itself is of four- ply construction covered with tar and gravel. A feature of the building is the 22 window:;, or a total of over 500 square feet of window space. An office is built into the south- east corner of the building, with the rest of the floor space being filled with machinery and bench- es. Mr. Hart purchased the site' for his new shop from Charles 'Hargraves. He also, purchased Hargraves’ newly constructed home, situated next to the shop, which he has remodeled for his family. According to Hart, the new shop is one of the most fully equipped and up-to-date sheet All types of sheet metal work will be done, as well as construction and repair of tanks and furnace units. Mr. Hart has had many years’ of experience in the sheet metal business. He moved from Port- land, where he had a shop, to Bremerton in 1932. He has been in the Navy Yard city since that time, deciding to move to Shel- ton this year, because of more permanent business conditions inI this area. The new shop is equipped with some very up-to-date machinery p almost any type of metal work. These heavy which will cut metal up to 14-in. will handle I/A-in. plate and a pow- plate.

SCHOOL TERM f Cloquallum Grade School Pupils ' Coming Here; Kindergarten Pre-Registration Is Promising With a full day today to get ,final details completed, both teachers and students are set for (tomorrow’s opening of the 1941— 42 school term in Shelton and in most rural Mason County dis— tricts. One of the final details which was wiped up late last week was completion of arrangements to bring Cloquallum district grade school pupils to Shelton for‘their schooling this term. Previously, I the Cloquallum board of directors ,had made arrangements to send ‘all Cloquallum district children to Elma, after it was decided not to ALL SET FOR ' START OF NEW , Eula Martin To Direct L e g i o n Her appointment as director of all rehabilitation work in this state for the American Le- gion Auxiliary was received to- day by Mrs. Eula Martin, one of the state’s most active work- ers in Legion Auxiliary affairs. Mrs. Martin has been chair- man of rehabilitation work at the American Lake and Orting veterans’ hospitals for the past four years. Her new assign— ment will place her in charge of that work in all veterans’ hos~ pitals in the state and will necessitate a. good deal of trav- eling and conferences with the various hospital superintend— ents and rehabilitation chair- men. The appolntment was made by Mrs. Cora Winteringer of Wenatchee, Department presi- dent of the Legion Auxiliary, who commented in her letter maintain the Cloquallum grade school this year, but in so doingl ,had gone against the majority wishes of residents of the district, according to both City Supt. H. E. Loop and County Supt. J. E. Mar-I tin. I An unofficial canvass of resi- dents of the district is reported to have favored sending Cloqual- lum pupils to Shelton by a 21 tb 19 margin, but the board went ahead with arrangements to have the district children transported I to Elma instead. Protests of the parents resulted in the reversal of arrangements and the transport- ing of the children to Shelton. High school pupils of the C10- quallum_ district, however, will continue to go to Elma, as they have done for several years past. The Cloquallum board itself was divided, 2 to 1, on the issue, the two members having businesses in Elma favoring sending the district‘s children to Elma, the local school superintendents re- ported. Both Supt. Loop and Supt. Martin said they had been presented with evidence proving the majority of the district resi- dents favored bringing their chil- dren here. BELFAIR BUDGET ONLY ONE NOT APPROVED Only the Belfair school budget was left without tthe approval of the county budget review board at its meeting to review final budgets for the 1941-42 school terms last Friday night, Mrs. Velma Baldwin, secretary to the county superintendent, reported Saturday. The Belfair budget lacked ap- proximately $2000 of balancing es- timated expenditures with esti- mated revenues, but a prospect of securing federal aid from the fund set up to assist districts facing problems arising from the influx of national defense work- ers (as Belfair is) decided the board to let the Belfair budget ride for the time being. All other budgets were approv- ed. LOCAL TEACHERS GO BACK TO THEIR JOBS A quartet of Shelton residents who follow the teaching profes- sion but not with the Shelton or Mason County school system re- turned to their posts either to- day or will tomorrow. They include Don Weeks, whose mother is 3. Lincoln grade school teacher here, returning to Kent; Marjory Jones, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. H. Parry Jones, goes to Tieton this term; Lewis Burnett, son of Mrs. C. R. Burnett, returns to the Seattle school system; and Grisdale Crosby, formerly a high school instructor in Shelton, goes back to Twisp (in Okanogan coun- ty) to resume the post as super- intendent he completed last year for his brother-in-law, who later died. Hoodsport School Gets $2,500 From Tacoma Tacoma, August‘ 28#The city council Wednesday approved an expenditure by the municipal light department of $2,500 toward edu- cation of children of city em- ployes living at the Lake Cush- man power plants, the sum to be paid to the Hoodsport school dis- trict where the children are being sent for their education. of appointment that “I feel you know rehabilitation work thor- oughly.” FIRE COMPLETELY RAZES HOUSE 0 N ISLAND LAKE ROAD City Fire Crew, Using Both Trucks, Saves Adjoining Residence Fire of unknown origin com— pletely razed the home occupied by Mr. and Mrs. Gene Townsend on the Island Lake road last Friday evening while they were away attending a show in Shel~ ton. All furnishings and personal be- longings were lost along with the home, which was owned by Mrs. Margaret Messing, who lived next door and whose own residence was saved only through the ef- forts of the Shelton city volunteer fire department. Both the city fire trucks were taken to the scene of the blaze because of the lack of hydrants or other available water supply there, only the water storage tanks of the two trucks being available to fight the conflagra- tion. Water had to be secured from the city hydrants at Mt. View when the tanks ran out. The fire had gained such headway by the time the fire trucks were able to arrive that efforts were con— centrated on saving Mrs. Mess- ing’s home next door. EX-Shelton Man Among Buyers Of Olympia Arena Three Olympia men, including one former Shelton resident — Dr. M. E. Kennedy — have pur- chased the Olympia Ice Arena from the former Tacoma owners and will open it for the 1941-42 Skating season tomorrow (Wed- nesday) evening. Dr. Kennedy's associates are G. I. Griffith and Charles Stick- ney, thus giving the Olympia Ice Arena a 100 per cent home own- ership. The property has been completely renovated during the' summer idle months, new music has been installed, and a new teaching staff contracted. Alex Lindgren, a member of the Sonja Henie skating retinue and a performer in several of the fa- mous blade star‘s motion pic- tures. including “Sun Valley Ser- enade.” released only last week, has been signed as professional to handle the skating and manage- ment of the arena, Dr. Kennedy announced on a visit to Shelton today. Children‘s classes will be one of the specialities featured by the new management with special low Prices arranged. ' "It’s fun to skate, so let‘s go skating” is the Slogan adopted by the new management. GIRL BORN SATURDAY Mr. and Mrs. Clifford Benson of Route 2 became parents of a baby daughter born Saturday at Shelton Hospital. ‘SEE WASHINGTON FIRST’ NEW TRAVEL THEME FOR LEWISES After completing a week’s vaca— tion trip last Friday, Mr. and Mrs. Charles R. Lewis are con- vinced some such slogan as “See Washington First.” would be a profitable and pleasant pattern for a. lot of Washington folks to fol- low, and resolved to adopt such a policy themselves hereafter. The trip the Shelton couple took carried them on a “loop” south- ward via Longview to Vancouver, thence eastward up the north bank of the Columbia River as far as the Maryhill Museum, then north- ward through Goldendale, Toppen- ish and Yakima to Wenatchee and back home over Snoqualmie Pass. Mr. Lewis lauded the Maryhill Museum highly and said he is de- termined to return and spend a full day browsing through the very interesting collections on dis- play there. The famous stone henge in the same vicinity is an- other interesting sight, he added. A visit with a grade and high school chum at Wenatchee proved exceptionally interesting to Mr. Lewis as his old friend is the man who designed the buildings for the well known Howe-Sound Mine on Lake Chelan. Although he has lived virtually all his life in Washington, Mr. Lewis admitted his trip last week took him through the Blewett and Snoqualmie passes for the first time. “Yes, sir. My own example con- vinces me too many of us Wash- ingtonians know too little about our own state,” Mr. Lewis com- mented. Rehabilitation 1 UNITED STATES is lit! oilith humour; wk OFFICIAL COUNTY PAPER WEATHER DOPE ‘OF AGE’ NOW; TEN YEARS UP Rayonier Bureau Averages Now Recognized As Official; Wettest August Re- corded; Year Dry Weatherman Bernard Winiecki and his staff of climatologists at the Rayonier plant were celebrat- ing the fact today that their branch of the federal weather bu- reau had become “of age.” That age is ten years, for the federal weather bureau has set a ,minimum of ten years for estab- lishing averages before they can be officially recognized as repre- senting accurate pictures. The end of August brought that ten year period of “waiting” to a close for the Rayonier branch bu— ireau, and with it these interesting {rainfall averages, as computed this morning by Bob Jackson, member of the bureau: Shelton’s average annual preci- 'pitation over that ten year period is 62.25 inches. The monthly rainfall averages are: Jan. ........ .. 10.753July .......... .. 0.92 Feb. .......... .. 7.98lAug. 1.14 March ...... .. 6.98}Sept. .......... .. 2.48 April ________ ,. 3.50pm. 5.70 May .. 2.68,Nov. ._ 8.34 June __________ __ 1.61lDec. ........ .. 14.17 Jackson went a step further and found out that 1941 to date is almost ten inches shy of the average rainfall for the first eight months, having up to the end of August only 25.52 inches again- st an average for the first eight months of 35.56 inches over that ten year period. Dry Record Possible With 25.52 inches so far, it leaves almost 37 inches of rain to go in the last four months before 1941 can reach “average” figures for the year, and over 23 inches to go to set a new dry record. The driest year on record in the ten so far is the 48.66 inch figure set in 1938. This past August was the wet- test on the ten-year Rayonier re- cords with its total of 3.17 inches, almost two, inches above. the aver: age precipitation for " the month, Jackson reported. The previous wettest August during the ten- year period was that of 1937 when 2.05 inches was recorded. The month’s dampness was pre- cipitated on ten different days, with the heaviest 24—hour fall oc-' curring on the last day of the month, when 0.65 inches was reg- istered on the Rayonier instr- uments. High Temperatures This past August was also a warmish month, as well as wet for this time of year. The average temperature of the month was 64 degrees, derived from a mean maximum of 75 degrees and a mean minimum of 53 degrees. A thermometer reading of 92 de- grees on the 7th was the hottest of the month, with a 90 degree reading on the 19th, an 89 degree reading on the 8th and an 87 de- gree reading on the 6th as tops in the maximum temperature de- partment. Coldest reading of the month was 45 degrees on the 6th. Twelve days-Were listed as clear in August, 13 as cloudy and six as partly cloudy.
