From there she ferried on the Matanuska to Haines, Alaska, then overland to Anchorage and, again by ferry, to Kodiak. Commander Linnenbruegge is a Navy veteran who spent 1V2 years as a nurse at Kodiak so was able to visit with many friends, part of the time sleeping in her camper, and fished in the rain without, she says, notable success. Her trip lasted almost a month and she returned by way of Seward, ferrying on the Wickersham to Kelsey Bay, and driving down Vancouver Island. Miss Linnenbruegge is enrolled in the Graduate School at the University of Washington where she is working on a Masters as Nurse Scientist.

I let her out to play in the yard these nice warm days and leave her cage where she can get in when the evening turns cold. The other evening she felt the call of the wild and stayed out in the trees until it became too cool for her, then she started calling in the early hours of the morning and it was a strange sound. Guests of Mrs. Teresa Holladay last week were the Rev. and Mrs. William Olsen and daughters, Bess and Ruth. They were visiting here from New Millport, Penna. They were friends in Bebu, in the Phillipines where they spent sixteen years as Presbyterian missionaries. This was their first trip to the North West and they thought this was beautiful country.

Sunday Mrs. Holladay's son and family, Gordon and Faye Holladay, joined them for a salmon barbecue. Roger Ewart and Bret Person successfully completed the Safety Firearm Training course that was offered by the Shelton Nimrod Club.

MARY WRIGHT e6 the PHONE CR 5-2033 ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~i~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ By LOU DONNELL ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~u~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~u~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~u~~H~~uu~~~~~~~~~~~~ Being a journalist has its compensations at times; like last Friday night when I was invited to visit the Les Krueger home to take photographs of the guests, including Governor Dan Evans, at a luau dinner attended by Republicans who had donated $100 or more to the party during the year. A few months after I had become editor I had driven down South Shore to knock on doors to ask the residents what they thought of the plans to enlarge Alderbrook Inn. The Krueger house happened to be one of the houses I had stopped at, so I had met them at that time. Later on, as I have driven down South Shore, I often look for the homes I visited that day but the last few months I never could locate the Krueger house. Now I know why. It doesn't look the same any more. Even though the greatly enlarged home has not yet been completed, with some of the rooms still in an unfinished state. 1 think it's safe to say that the Krueger house, itself, caused as much interest as the visiting dignitaries. Expecially the indoor swimming pool. I didn't measure the large room holding the beautifully curved pool and a smaller whirlpool bath, but I think my five-bedroom house would have fit into it without too much squeezing. There were three or four card tables set up poolside but the place looked empty, it could have held 25 or 30 more around the pool without crowding. Since the party was sponsored by the Century Club of Bremerton, a Kitsap County Republican club, I didn't expect to know any of the guests. I was pleasantly surprised to meet Bob and Fran Sutton of South Shore, another couple 1 first met that day I knocked on stranger's doors. And my Bulldog Beat reporter, Rob May, was helping park cars in a large parking lot across the street and up a steep hill. With help fror:l the Suttons, I soon discovered there were four other couples from the Belfair area, the Gene Wards, the lke Parkers, the Wendell Arnolds and the Scott Wetzels so I maneuvered them into my pictures. They were all very friendly and co-operative when they found out the picture was for the Huckleberry Herald. While awaiting the arrival of the Governor and his party, I sipped champagne and visited with the guests. While talking to Harry Beasley, who, with his wife Edith, was a houseguest of the Kruegers, I learned that one of the new rooms added was reached by a circular staircase and led to a room carpeted in bright orange and having black lights. This was the room of the Krueger's son. It sounded worth seeing, but I hated to go snooping around by myself so I asked Fran Sutton and Bette Ward if they would like to join me to search for the "different" room and they jumped at the chance. You almost need a road map for the large house and we couldn't find a circular stairway until we asked the Krueger's daughter where it was and she led the way. It was behind a closed door near the entry hall and we made our way up the narrow stairs to admire the boy's hideaway. When the Kruegers finish their remodeling I'm going to knock on their door again; this time to ask for a guided tour through the beautiful home. It wouldn't be out of place in House Beautiful. Arson supected in secon mysterious Beard's C0ve Fire struck another building at Beard's Cove early in the morning of August 30, this time completely destroying the bathing house on the beach recreation area. The fire alarm was received at 1:35 a.m., called in by a South Shore resident who noticed the flames from her nearby trailer home. Almost immediately calls were received by persons who had been driving down the Highway 3 hill into Belfair, who saw the fire across the water. Four trucks responded and had the fire out within 20 minutes but it was too far gone by the time they arrived to save any part of the small structure serving as dressing rooms for the swimming pool. Wind had carried sparks and burning cedar pieces over one hundred feet to the north to burn a large area of grass. The State Fire Marshall has been notified and was expected to visit Belfair Wednesday to inspect the remains in search of clues as to who might have started the blaze. Arson is strongly suspected and a $100 reward has been offered by Allen Bowden, developer of Beard's Cove, for any information leading to the conviction of the persons responsible for this fire or the fire several weeks ago which destroyed the sales office.
