SHELTON, WASHINGTON, en Tie For Top As? stakes Starl' Teachers Given $75 Bonus; Board Foresees Trend Carrying out a policy for which it had provided last spring in setting up the 1941- 42 budget, the Shelton school board last week approved a. $75—a-year bonus to each of the 54 teachers in the Shelton sys- tem, Board Chairman A. S. Viger announced. The total bonus to be paid the teachers under this action will amount to $4050, which had been provided for in the 1941-42 budget. The school directors foresaw the possibility last spring, when setting up the. budch for this year, of a rise in the cost of living, so provided for it if it should become necessary.

POACHING TSSEE ’ MUST BE FACED, SPORTSEEN SEE Hood Canal Ass’n Discusses Prob- lem, Decides Public Must As— sist Game Protectors More Much as they distaste the idea, Hood Canal Sportsmen Ass‘n members were of the opinion at their September meeting last Thursday at Hoodsport that all good sportsmen must turn “squealer” in order to stop the poaching which is dogging Wash- ington's game life. Such, at least, was the tone of‘ the conversation which held sway after the general business details of Thursday's session were clear- ed away. ' “We need an open season on poachers, as well as on preda- tory animals," one member com- mented.‘ *"*" ‘ " Another. asserted that all viola- tions which come to the attention of sportsmen or any member of; the public should be reported im—l mediately to the game protector and that the game protectors should receive every bit of co- operation possible from the pub- lic and sportsmen in curbing poaching. Must Do Something “We must face this issue square- ly, we must even turn ‘squealer' much as we hate to do so, but something has to be done to curb poaching,” one veteran sportsman exclaimed. Results of the Association’s predatory animal hunt were an- nounced by Chairman Allie Robin- son, who said 230 predators were turned in by the participants in the contest, with many others not turned in known to have been kill- ed. . Martin Lund of Capitol Hill won the 32 calibre carbine rifle put up by the L. M. for first prize with a total of 42,750 points. Buck Armstrong, another Capitol Hill entrant, took the fishing reel sec- ond prize offered by Shelton Hard- ware with a point total of 6,250, Lawrence Munson of Shelton earn- ed the third prize fishing line of— fered by Smith's Cigar Store and G. C. Gray of Hoodsport, the fourth prize waterproof match container put up by the Stop Inn. Finch Creek Backed The junior prize, a rowboat seat put up by the Cub Cigar Store, was won by ,Clarence Robinson, the only entrant. The Hood Canal Sportsmen pledged themselves to continue efforts to have Finch Creek set aside for fishing by kids under 16 years only. Secretary 0. K. Linscott re- viewed action taken by the last quarterly session of the Washing- ton State Sports Council, which he attended, and the association's next meeting on October 30 was designated as “hunters’ banquet", night. Vice-President M. C. Stark pre- sided in the absence of President George Adams. 0 Local cor. At Yakima Session E. H. Faubert, Harold Lake- burg, Reginald Sykes and G. C- Angle represented Mason County at the Republican convention and rally of state representatives at Yakima Monday, to meet the Na- tional Chairman, Congressman Joe Martin, in his round of the country to acquaint the pool)18 with the critical situation of the nation and its wasteful handling of its problems. He reports that while the people are anxious to play their part in support of the nation they are getting alarmed over the apparent abuses and ris- ing taxes as well as artificxal shortages in domestic life. The weather was fine on the Eastsldey and the trip over Natches Pass very beautiful at this season. The state-wide group was quite en‘ thusiastic. NATIONAL Nrwsraprn ©©if©l§3l§£ll ii-lB counrnsr or 'nrrtahcinrr'i-nurnicn. NATIONAL NEW’SPAPER WEEK The week of October 1-8 has been th‘e Tesday, September 30, 1941. Shelton Independent OFFICIAL COUNTY PAPER COMMUNITY CALENDAR VVEDNESDAY—New federal tax schedule goes into effect. WEDNESDAY—U. S. Navy re- cruiting officer at city hall, 9 a.m. to 4 pm. W’EDNESDAY—A c t i V e c l u b Weekly dinner meeting, 6:30 p. m., Moose Hall. , l WEDNESDAY—O d d F e 1 lo w s lodge weekly meeting, 8 p.m., set aside for national observance to fo- cus the attention of the American people to what is about the last bulwark of the freedoms guaranteed by the Constitu- tion, that of a free press. It is quite true that the right of free speech is still preserved, under certain limits, and the radio which is the other great medium for reaching the people, is to some extent free, but under the hand of the radio commission. . But the newspapers, 5 o m e 2,500 ' English language dailies, a n (1 10,000 weeklies and semi-weeklies, guided by as many independent minds, are in the main free of dictation as to what to print and what not to print in their news. The German reads nothing Hitler orders, in Russia what Stalin di- rects, and Italy bows to Mussolini, while all the subjugated countries’ papers print only what the dictators command on but what pain of execution. To listen to foreign broadcast is death. We can only imagine a newspaper l which feeds the people only propaganda without word of truth of what is going on around them or in other countries of the world, in contrast to Americanpress which tells the true world story every day, as far as foreign censors permit. It is easy to see what the control of the press means in any country and take warning in America to resist any move, however subtle, to take away the freedom of the press, which stands for the right of freedom for all the people. NEW TAXES WILL MISS FEW; SEVERAL LEVIES BEGIN OCT. ] AS ‘LUXURY’ SCHEDULE OPENS Nearly every man and woman in Mason County will be among the millions 0f Americans to con- tribute to the $3,553,400.00 “de~ fense kitty” through new ,and higher taxation as a result of the Signing of the Revenue Act of 1941 by President Roosevelt last week. The tax bill is the largest in the history of the United States. Directly or. indirectly, the mea- sure will affect virtuélly every Citizen. It is estimated 2,250.- 000 people who "never. paid an in— come tax before will hand over a check next March to Uncle Sam’s tax collector. Other millions will Pay more for “luxuries,” hidden taxeS. And nearly 10,000,000 for- mer tax payers will find their 1941 income tax double or triple what their 1940 tax was. Income Base Lowered . All single persons with a gross income of $750 or more and all married persons with a gross in- com}? of $1,500 or more will have to file income tax returns for the first time under the new act. The 4 .P91' cent rate was continued wlthout change, and the $400 cred— It for dependents is continued. People with insufficient income '10 Pay income taxes will be af- IeCted. in other ways.

Even light globes will carry a per cent excise tax. Going into effect immediately on October 1 will be the retailers’ tax of 10 per cent on toiletries, jewelry, (real and imitation and including Silverware. watches and clocks) furs and- fur articles.

NEw REEULATETNS 0N FOOD STAMPS EFFECTlVE OCT. 1 New regulations governing- food stamp sales under the Surplus Marketing Administration go into effect tomorrow throughout the State of Washington in which to- tal income in the household and the number of persons in the household will determine mini- mum and maximum amounts of food stamps allowed families. I 50 Riiiigs ()n In general, according to these new requirements, the greater the income in the household partici- pating in the stamp plan, and the larger the family, the higher the minimum purchase requirements of orange stamps will be; the less— er‘ the income, and the smaller the family, the lower the minimum purchase requirements will be. Thus the new schedule of orange stamp minimum purchase re- quirements is more equitably ad— justed to the normal food—buying capacity of each family and more nearly represents the former cash food buying ability of stamp users. Up,‘,to. this time throughout the state. those buying surplus com- ,‘modlty; food stamps have bought varying amounts according to the regulations in the county where they lived. The minimum and maximum purchase requirements have been based on either a flat amount per person, per month, or on the type of assistance received by the stamp purchaser. Election Returns From Junior High Continuing to poll the largest vote total, Gordon Hopland was elected president of the Shelton junior high student body at the revote Friday in which he defeat— ed two feminine rivals. Marilyn Waklee was elected vice-president, Virginia Gray sec- retary, and Verna Cobb treasur- er, in last week’s first ballot, while I the team of Marilyn Andersonl and Eleanor Ann Booth was chos- en yell leaders at Friday’s revote. Results of today's Girls Ath- letic Association election at the junior high placed Dorothy Gru- ver as president, Patricia Rhodes as vice-president, Edith Wright as secretary-treasurer, and Glor- ia Swanson as sergeant-at-arms. Replinger Getg i Active Club Job Appointment of John Replinger, program chairman for the Shel- ton Active Club, to that same post for Active International has been announced by International President Art Fairchild of Ray- mond. Replinger will head a commit- tee composed of one Activian from each district in the International with duties to consist of outlining programs for member clubs to use as guides in their own act-l ivities. Four Shelton Activians attend- ed the semi-annual District One officers training school at Cen- tralia Sunday which was con- ducted by District Governor Paul Marshall of Shelton.

That’ll be when the remaining ten rungs on the second annual silver salmon derby qualifying board are filled. This past week- end saw 27 fish weighed in, fill- ing 50 rungs on the qualifying board, by far the best weekend of the derby so far. Only 60 places are available on the board, so after the next ten fish are weighed in the low—rung holders are going to find themselves dis- possessed. While it wasn’t the biggest —-— in fact it was the smallest ~— fish turned in during last weekend’s tremendous play, the salmon en- tered by Sonny Boy Collier, ten— year-old son of Dr. and Mrs. B. N. Collier, draws the spotlight in today’s accounting of the derby activities. Sonny caught his entry while‘ trolling from his Dad’s hydro- planc on Hammersly Inlet Sun- day. It weighed 81,4; pounds and‘ was the larger of two fish Sonny caught from his unusual trolling vehicle. The other weighed over seven pounds. He was using a red feather. Despite the huge turnover of silvers of the weekend, George Forbes clung to his position atop the board and still holds the in- side track to the $5 cash prize the derby sponsoring committee has put up for the largest quali- fying fish. However, the derby has 26 more days to go before the qualifying period is over so Forbes hasn’t started spending his prize money yet. A checkup by Derby Chairman Claire Tozier and Committeeman Gordon Russell yesterday showed that 114 anglers have paid their $1 entry fees, indicating last year‘s total entry list should be far eclipsed this year. Here’s the way the derby board reads this afternoon. SCHOOL AUTHD ‘Write Today To Those Away’ Is Slogan of Week “'V Backed by the slogan Seme- body’s Looking for YOUR LET- TER’S,” the fourth annual na- tional letter-writing week spon- sored by the Post Office De.— partment will be conducted dur— 1 ing the week October 5—11, Postmaster Miss Jessie Knight announced yesterday. Because of the thousands of young men now serving in the armed forces, national letter- writing week this year takes on a new importance. Miss Knight pointed out that it would at least bespeak appreciation if during national letter-writing week there could be widely de- veloped the habit of frequent correspondence with these well- deserving youths. The exchange of cheerful let- , ters btheen friends, acquaint- ‘ ances, Separated members of the family, will contribute in no small way to spreading happi- ness and building up a better spirit among all the people. ‘ BELFAIR SEEKINII ' SPECIAL LEVY T (l : BUILD NEW SCHOOL District Must Raise $3900 To Get $40,000 Federal Sum and $6,000 from State In an effort to relieve the acute shortage of school room space which the tremendous increase in the community’s population the past year has caused, Belfair res! idents will vote October 16 on special millage for the purpose of rounding out a fund to which the federal government will contri— bute about four-fifths the total. The federal government, under provisions of the bill creating a fund to assist school districts crowded badly by the influx of de- fense industry workers, has ap— propriated approximately $40,000 to the Belfair district and the state has added another $6,000, both with the proviso that the dis- trict itself raise $3900 to round out a $50,000 fund to construct‘ a new four-room grade school .

Nowit’s a fact for them, where- as up to last Saturday morning Visits Shelton Plant it was just a fancy. They are the thirteen who received persons President E. M. Mills of Ray, their final American citizenship onier Incorporated paid a visit tol papers Saturday after undergomg the Shelton division plant and‘ naturalization hearings conducted the Seattle headquarters of the firm he heads last week, officials of the Shelton plant announce. The visit was on routine mat- ters concerning, Rayonier affairs. Mr. Mills did not stop at Hoquiam or Port Angeles divisions of the company before returning to his offices in San Francisco. TREATED AT HOSPITAL Max- Winkler, Simpson Logging company employe, was admitted to Shelton Hospital yesterday for treatment. before Superior Court Judge D. F. Wright by E. C. Morse, examining officer for the U. S. Immigration Bureau office in Seattle. Unique among the thirteen fi- nal papers granted Saturday was the case of Mrs. Nettie Sarah Hodge, who had the unusual ex- perience of becoming an Ameri- can citizen in the town where she was born. Mrs. Hodge is a na- tive daughter of Shelton, having been born down Oakland Bay over 70 years ago, yet she had to undergo naturalization because she lost her American citizenship when she and her husband moved to Canada many years ago and became Canadian citizens. The other twelve new citizens naturalized in Saturday’s semi- annual hearings were' Teresa Whittingham, Esmaralda Jordan, Delmar B. Cole, Tom Seljestad, Vera Devlin and John W. Ben- nett, all of Shelton, and Ivy Eaton, Skokomish Valley, all British sub- jects; Elsie Susanne Schlosser, Shelton, German citizen; Gudrun Elizabeth Skagen and Evelyn Carlson, both Shelton, and Jo- hanna Caroline Anker, Allyn, all Norwegian itizens; and John Haggstrom, Shelton. Swedish sub- jec . In addition, Marguerite Mary Collins, Mary Bednarski, Stella May Morken and Pearl Schmidt were all repatriated. They were all American-born citizens who lost their citizenship through mar- riage. RITIES ASK RECONSIDERATION 0F GRID SUSPENSION 0F SHELTON lState Ass’n Assembly Would Dole ‘ Out Stiff Penalty For Vio- lation of Early Foot- ball Practice Rule Reconsideration of the facts concerning Shelton high school‘s violation of a Washington State High School Athletic Ass’n ruling ;prohibiting opening of football practice before September 1 and which resulted last Saturday in a recommendation by the 20—man irepresentative assembly of the State Ass’n that Shelton and (Bremerton high schools be sus- pended for the balance of the foot— ‘ ball season is being asked by both Ithe schools involved, Athletic Di- l l l l l l l frector Homer Taylor of Shelton said today. “While we have not received ' any official notification of the as- sembly's recommendation to the association, we will ask the asso- ciation to consider all the facts before acting upon the recommen- dation.” Taylor said this morning. First Action Reversed The 20—man assembly reversed a recommendation of the five-man board of directors of the State Association which merely sug— gested that Shelton and Brem- erton be plaCed upon probation for the balance of the school year. This would have allowed both teams to complete their foot- ball schedules, but the recommen- dation of the assembly if approv- ed ~by the State Ass’n would force the two schools to cancel their remaining games and forfeit any victories they may have won up to date. Shelton has none, but Brcmerton has won two games. In the. meantime, While await- ing a decision from the State Ass’n, next Saturday’s game be- tween Shelton and Raymond, scheduled at Raymond, probably will be called off, Athletic Direc- tor Taylor said today. Shelton Not Represented Taylor pointed out that Shelton had not been invited to send a representative to Saturday’s meet- ing, held in Seattle, and therefore its position in the row was not presented to the'assembly. Taylor said Shelton’s argument to the. State Ass’n will be “ignor- ance of the existence of the rule" although he admitted that care- lessness perhaps contributed to the violation, but that no inten~ tional transgression against the rule had been made by Shelton. It is understood here that El- ma school officials made the pro- test against Shelton to the State Ass’n. Football Coach Walt Hakola is- sued equipment to approximately a half dozen candidates for this year’s team on August 28 and allowed them to exercise with footballs for the balance of‘that week, but no organized squad workouts were held until the op- ening of school. Rule Roundly Criticized The rule against early football turnouts was passed last spring. It has met with almost universal criticism from coaches and J. D. Meyer of Spokane, secretary of the State Ass’n board of directors, admitted that discussion was “pretty warm" throughout the meeting Saturday. Little publicity was given the rule after its passage last spring. Taylor pointed out, and the State Association’s new rule book for the 1941-42 athletic seasons was not published until late in the summer and was not received by athletic officials of schools affil- iated with the State Ass’n until the beginning of the current term. Penalty Too Severe Taylor pointed out that the pen- alty recommended by the assem- bly Saturday would be extremely severe for an unintentional viola- tion of the ruling under the con- ditions existing in Shelton’s case and that such a penalty would work a severe hardship on the players, the student body and the schools with which Shelton has scheduled games. He added that considerable pub- licity was given the first football turnout in the columns of this paper and that had the school wil- fully violated the rule the early turnouts would have been called yin secrecy rather than with the publicity given them. Hope that a more just punish- ment than outright suspension for the rest of the season can be ar- ranged is held due to the fact that the delegate assembly which recommended the suspension has no power to invoke the penalty but that action must be taken by the board of,rdirectors which origin- ally recommended the probation. Child— Struck By Auto Saturday Struck by a car as he ran down a steep driveway onto the Navy Yard highway, John Tabor, three- year-old sonof Mr. and Mrs. Ben Tabor of Union, was treated at Shelton Hospital for cuts and bruises but an x-ray showed no broken bones Saturday. The tot was hit by a car driven by John R. Wilkins, 33, of Olym- plia near Femwood on Hood Can- a . Donald A. Scofield, 19, Route 2, Shelton, and Ray Barr, ‘1, Grape- view, were driving cars involved in an accident at the intersection of the old Allyn road with High- way 14-A nine miles east of Shel- ton Saturday. Damages were not listed. No injuries were sustain- ed by the passengers.
