The initials stand for British Horse Society Assistant Instructor, and Kathy will concentrate on dressage and jumping. "All phases of horsemanship will be covered in the year course," she explains, "and this will include training and the treatment of minor ailments of the horse." Kathy, the daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Alfred Jones, lives on a 240 acre ranch that has been in the family since Washington was a territory. It was purchased and clearing begun in 1888. Here she has always lived except for a six-month period in Washington, D.C. when her Navy-employed father was there on duty. Miss Jones was born in a hospital in Bremerton on January 13, 1954. She has three brothers, Fred, a SHS graduate, Eddie, a sophomore, and Larry, a seventh-grader. Fred is the only family member who does not ride. Her mother, Doris, rides "Quite-A-Step" a registered chestnut quarterhorse mare whose spring foal was a fine filly. Eddie's mount is "Zipper" , a registered quarterhorse gelding. Dad rides a part quarterhorse gelding, and Larry's pony, "Mandy", is Welch and quarterhorse. The family owns a total of eight horses. A purebred Arabian gelding, whose name, "Gamil-Azib," means "Beautiful Batchelor" was awarded to Kathy two years ago in the 4-H mare-and-foal project. Now a three-year-old, he is trained and ridden by Kathy. "He's doing real well," she says. "Osage Midge" is Kathy's registeredquarterhorse mare. When Miss Jones departs for England after her graduation, the Arab will be sold. "We'll keep "Midge", Kathy Club, Miss Jones participates in trail rides and in performance shows. She is not interested in gaming her horses. Kathy, her family, her friends all enjoy the many miles of trails on the Jones ranch. It is possible to ride from the Jones home to Grapeview or to Timber Lakes without traveling on a road. Family members have amassed many trophies awarded for miles ridden on the trails. Kathy , in addition, won junior high point trophy in the 1968 Mason County Fair. Her school interests include Science Club and Pep Club, and she is a member of Honor Society. She tikes all outdoor activities, especially hiking. She enjoys boating and salmon fishing, and she is fond of all animals. Most of the work involved in the care of the family horses is done by Kathy, who boasts another accomplishment not common to the average girl of today. She can, and frequently does, milk the family cow. Already well on her way to her chosen career, Kathy Jones instructs two riding pupils. Garden Clean-Up Time Approaches Check the wooden handles of your garden tools for tightness and for splits and splinters. Loose handles can cause accidents and splinters in the fingers are not exactly comfortable. Be sure to clean up thoroughly around the vegetable garden. Overwintering insect eggs can make'a great deal of trouble when they hatch next spring. Burning all refuse from useful vegetables helps cut the" insect population. JOURNALISM IS literature in a hurry. Matthew Arnold OC Many are the reasons for the sudden graying of a mother's hair, and not the least of these are the secret rehearsals for a backyard circus. When her seven-and-a-half- year-old daughter Brenda and her friends got tired of swimming in Island Lake and deserted the beach in front of her home for somewhat noisy sessions behind the barricaded doors of the family garage, Mrs. Harold Wilson checked frequently to determine just what the kids were up to. But activities ceased at the sound of ,her approaching footsteps. "It's a good thing I didn't PERFORMERS IN THE backyard circus that benefited the Children's Orthopedic Hospital are, left to right, Sonya Klokkevold, Human Fly Steve Swearingen, Ringmaster and puppeteer Greg Starr, and Brenda Wilson. The versatile young ladies appeared in numerous roles. Ircus know exactly what they were practicing," Brenda's mother admits. "I'd have had a heart attack." After two weeks of daily work, the show premiered in the Wilson garage on the evening of August 27. Tickets were sold at the door to raise funds for the Children's Orthopedic Hospital in Seattle, and the sum was augmented by the vigorous hawking of popcorn and lemonade during intermission. Ringmaster Greg Starr, a nine-year-old with imagination, manipulated Raggedy Ann and Raggedy Andy dolls in true Punch-and-Judy fashion to the tune of quick and clever patter. The not-so-wild animal acts were presented by eigh t-a n d-a-half-year-old Sonya Klokkevold and her speaking Chihuahua, Poncho and by Brenda Wilson who persuaded her wirehaired terrier, Penney, to sit up. The same two young ladies, both members of the Mason County Robinettes, appeared in solo baton twirling exhibitions and later, with a change of costume, posed and pirouetted ballerina-style on high-swinging ropes. asp The grande finale came as a complete surprise to the already badly-shaken parents and neighbors when Steve Swearingen, from a hiding place high in the dark recesses of the ceiling, came swooping down, black-caped, to soar hand-over-hand from rafter to rafter as the Human Fly. On September 8 a repeat performance was given before the Rainier Orthopedic Guild, of which Mrs. Wilson is a member. The children presented to the guild the happily-earned total of thirteen dollars and fourteen cents. says, "and raise foals from her." Kathy has been riding for approximately 12 years.
