I n s t it utional Representative Erik Tokar gave a rundown of the Boy Scouts activities during their first year which was recently completed. At 6 a.m. Saturday morning eight Boy Scouts and three committee men departed [toodsport for the Big Quil Trail. The first day they hiked six miles to Camp Mystery where they set up camp. That evening a hike was taken to the top of the pass where they could see lights of all the cities from Everett to Victoria, B.C. On the second day they rose to find their breakfast meat had spoiled so Erik Tokar set out to catch fish for breakfast. Erik caught three fish which were quickly snatched away by a sly weasel or mink. A snare trap was set, but the little varmit had had his breakfast, so didn't return. Well this didn't hold up the hike, the group continued on through Buckhorn Pass to Buckhorn Lake where camp was set up. The Alpine Meadows were in full bloom and three colors of Indian Paint Brush even impressed the boys. The sixteen mile hike led the group to the Tubal Cain Mine and an old airplane wreck. Dona O'Neil and Donna Simmons met the Boy Scouts at Silver Creek Shelter Monday evening. Then it was back to Hoodsport before the soaking rains hit the area.

The Tiny Tim Orthopedic Guild held its first regular meeting of the year this Wednesday. President Mrs. R. M. Sharpes presided over the meeting which was hosted by Mrs. Dick Allen. Proceeds from the Guild's fund raising projects go to the Mary Bridges Children's Hospital in Tacoma. Michael Simmons, Wade Johnston and Kenneth Drake had a bout with a nest of yellow-jackets this past week. Swarming with bees the children hurried to Kenny's home where they jumped in the bath tub and showered at the same time. Three boxes of soda was plastered over the boys as mothers pulled the stinging bees from their hair. Covered with stings, Michael and Kenny were taken to the hospital where they underwent two hours of observation before being released with some medicine. Ice-bags covering the swollen stings that ranged from head to toe relieved the pain and swelling, but dampened the beds as the boys spent a restless night. No more hikes are being planned and the Finch Creek logging road is being cautiously avoided until the winter snows fall.

Fellow forest service workers at Hoodsport will bid farewell to the Bisson family at a salmon barbecue, to be given in,, their honor this evening. Misty Bloomfield treated his family to an airplane ride Sunday. All summer the children had been awaiting the day that dad could take time out from logging for a flight over the Olympics and Puget Sound. Donna, David and Vicky lifted off with Misty at the Port Townsend Airport. Their flight took them over the Olympics and around the Kitsap area before setting down at Sanderson Field. In the meantime Nancy and the other kids drove home to Welcome back for the 1971 -1972 School Year! You'll be interested in our special MEDICAL, and Especially designed for educators.

Little Douglas anxiously awaiting a call from Dad for word of his turn, sat patiently and unnoticed in the corner of the bedroom holding the phone receiver in his hand. In the meantime everyone else stood by the kitchen phone. A call to the neighbors rescued everyone so they rushed to the airport to meet dad who was restlessly awaiting their arrival. So finally Doug got his first airplane ride along with mother and sisters Pare and Shannon. He wiggled around under the seat belt as the plane lifted off, but soon became bored with his new experience and decided that high in the sky, despite some air pocket disturbances, was as good a place as any to nap. Nancy Bloomfield will be writing the Hoodsport News starting with the next issue. Please give her a phone call at 877-9242. At this time I would like to thank the community for the assistance they have given me in providing news this summer. I am sure my family will miss not hearing the phone ring or the typewriter jotting out words at 2 a.m., but getting acquainted with local residents and enjoying their vacations with them has been fun. So again thank-you for sharing your activities with all of us. ran ers By DORA HEARING MATLOCK - Matlock Grange held its annual picnic at Schafer Park last Friday night with 23 members turning out.

Our hostess for the September meeting, to be held Thursday, September 9th, will be Eileen Cruickshank. So drag your heels a bit or you and Eileen will both be surprised if you forget and go to Club today. Would all you folks really like to know why the Fall rains started precisely when they did this week? It just has to be because the Glenn Yates' family decided to tear off half of their roof this past weekend, that's why ! Last Friday Lisa and I performed a very sad task, that of joining with other friends and family to pay our respects to a very dear friend. She had that special knack of working herself into one's heart before one had really gotten to know her very well. And how the children all adored her. Some of the older ones at Pioneer seemed to think she was rather gruff at times. But she once remarked, 'all I really want from them is respect, and I'm going to do my level best to get their respect.' Dorothy once came to the Island and helped make an already special occasion even more special. The occasion was Lisa's seventh birthday and Mrs. Zickrick came as a surprise to Lisa. We enjoyed that day so very much, and I regret deeply for having failed to make a special effort to have her come back, although there was always an open invitation to pop in anytime, which she knew. For this writer, as well as her many other friends, there is going to be a big hole in our lives. And that hole will be especially felt whenever I walk through those school doors. At her funeral, held at the St. Edwards Church on Friday, it was Picnic afternoon caller at the Hearing home. They hadn't seen each other for 40 years so had a lot of visiting to make up. Holly and Sylvia Cash are spending a couple weeks with their grandparents Mr. and Mrs. Max Cash. Mr. and Mrs. Lud Rossmaier, Mrs. Edward Valley and LeRoy Valley attended the wedding of Linda Dodge and Dennis Combs at the First Methodist Church in Shelton Saturday afternoon.

Mr. and Mrs. Herbert B'rehmeyer Jr. and' family returned Sunday after vacationing a week in California. Thursday evening Mr. and Mrs. Dick Tupper and Susan were dinner guests of Mr. and Mrs. Ken Branson of Lake Nahwatzel. It was a birthday dinner to honor Mrs. Tupper. Mr. and Mrs. Ken Clevinger of the lake attended also. Mr. Moriah Lodge No. 11 F. & A. M. Saturday, April 4 Stated Communication Lodge Opens 8 p.m. Alex E. Smith, W.M. Arnold L. Cheney, Secretary m~ng Up announced that the teachers were putting on a luncheon following the services at the cemetery. However, this was an error and I had a call asking me to let everyone know that it was the Pioneer P.T.O. that made the arrangements for the luncheon. A very sincere thank you to all who helped on that much appreciated act of kindness. Raymond and Margaret McCulloch enjoyed an overnight visit the first of this week from some old fishing friends. The visitors, the Tom Burks, hail from DesLoge, Missouri. There was just one problem with the visit, - it was much too short. For the travelers arrived on Monday and by Tuesday were on their way north to see Vancouver Island while they were in this area. About a week ago Gret and Gordon Simmons had a busy day. Early in the afternoon Merle and Anita Hall, of Shelton, dropped in for a couple of hours of chatting. Later that same day Eddy and Dagmar Anderson from the mainland came to spend the evening and enjoy dinner with Gret and Gordon.
