The new car is presented in three lines ranging from, an economy model that incorporates unusual ' refinements to a luxury linesur- passing all previous presentations in the lowest-price field. As in past years, the new car is presented in the Master Deluxe ,and Special Deluxe series, The iFleetline series, introduced mid- 1 season last year in sedan only, is ' represented again by sedan, known {as the Sportmaster, and the new Fleetline six—passenger Aerose- dan, said to be one of the most attractively styled models in the' entire showing. The same attention to finishedl detail that is apparent in. the ex- terior of the new models is noted at once inside the car. Smart I Styling, fine materials, and ex- écellent design have produced thel most beautiful and comfortable in— I tenors that Chevrolet ever has ’ offered. _A new, lower, wider, more mas- sive grille with its heavier bars ‘Slves an instant impression of .blgness. while the blunter, deeper lhood, front splash shield, and more widely spaced Sealed Beam headlights contribute to that ef- fect. Greater length is indicated at once by the new elongated lfront fenders, which flow back. Into the front doors, swinging With the doors as they are opened. The new fender design permits deSlrable clean, smooth surfaces. An ingenious touch is the new foot scraper at the front running lboard step pad, created by a tri- ‘ angular extension of the new fen— ders. '2 I.0.0.F.

' MASON COUNTY LoGGING co. , ITS CAMP AT 1 continuance of the mill at Bor<i deaux. The machinery of the milll and logging operation will be sold or junked, and the company will proceed to ' liquidate its assetsi which will take Several years; theI life of the original incorporation. l l i woods and mill operations at Bordeaux, but today there are no more logs worth cutting in the vicinity and so this little forest I l l l l I l i. of fifty years ending next July,[ and a renewal being required un-f til the affairs are fully closed. Bordeaux, which has been a typical. mill. town supported byl the industry and with no other, background, will soon become a “ghost town" as there is no rea- son for any family exce t a care-1 taker to remain, and he work-l men are glad that'the mills car-E ried them through the ten-year: depression-period and until now; there are .jobs elsewhere. Thei company built the mill, boarding house, engine houso, stores, number of small homes for itsl' workmen, and during the years many miles of railroad connecting its cutting to demands of the mid- dlc states and shipped its lumberl by rail, and at its best 700 men; were employed in the various op- l erations. ' Company Dates Back To 1890 The Mason County Logging Company was one of the oldest of logging operations, the oldest in point of name in Mason Coun- ty, being organized in 1890 by Thomas- and Joseph ‘Bordeauxw brothers who had operated around Shelton for several previous years in partnership. A. H. Anderson, then head ()1? the Satsop Railroad. was one of the incorporators, and Ferd. Stabenfeldt, the bookkeeper, was the fourth member. This con- 6 corn expanded to larger opera- tions on the Satsop, later Penin-i sular, Railroad and logged for a; l l dozen years covering most of the territory between Dayton and Lake Newatzel, then winding up! in Mason County in the district! near Scott‘s Prairie and Purdy‘ Canyon in 1907. With the available timber grow— ing short the company turned its attention to the then untouched belt around the Black Hills in, Thurston County, where Bordeaux was located for the mill site andl several miles of railroad built; 1 where the company transferrcdl all its operation and continued un- 5 til the hills are bare of timber as ' well as all the territory within reach. In 1908 the company was] reorganiZed with capital stock of $1,000,000, with the Bordeaux Brothers and A. H. Anderson as stockholders. George Brazcl Blazcd The \Vuy According to the Daily Olym-J pian, George Brazel, an Olympian who will be 84 years old this Dec— ember. remembers the time when he supervised a total of 700 men at the operation. Brazel was the man who cut the first bush in that area. In the summer of 1896, Brazel was hired by the logging company to cruiSe the area. He worked four months, and in the fall of that year had run a survey eight miles in from the Northern Pacific tracks to South Cedar Creek. The survey completed, Brazel then worked for several years, opening the Shelton camp for the Mason County Logging Company. In January, 1900, he was put in charge of a crew to grade a road, where he had run his survey into the present Bordeaux area. The crews laid tracks into the woods for three miles, built the main camp where Bordeaux now is and in June of that year started log- ging. I Brazel was foreman for several! years, was later made superin- tendent-of the operation, a posi‘ lion he held until ihc latler 1920's. lRole In The World Crisis” Town Hall Series Closes Thursday With guest Night America’s most recent ambassa- dor to Germany, the Hon.
