rogram A $ 1 1 6,000 state-wide MiniGrant program - designed to support immediate classroom services to children - will provide a chance for teachers and community members to apply directly for federal fund support, superintendent of Public Instruction Louis Bruno announced this week. Developed through the recently-organized grants management department in Bruno's office, the program will provide Title I11 funds of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA) to the 14 intermediate school districts (ISD's) in Washington State. The intermediate school districts will, rovl in turn, distribute funds to school districts from which project ideas are selected. Most of Mason County is served by ISD 113, of which Fred Tidewell, Court }touse Annex, Olympia, is the superintendent, qhe North Mason School District is in ISD 114, of which Kenneth Hawerton P. O. Box 155, Federal Building, Port Townsend, is superintendent. "We are taking this approach - upon the recommendation of the ESEA Title II1 State Advisory Council - in order to stimulate federal project participation by classroom teachers and others, and to reinforce project development efforts by school administrators," Bruno said. MARTIN TOWNSEND, right, son of Mr. and Mrs. Newton Townsend, Shelton, visits with fellow students at a school he is attending in Austria. Martin Townsend, 17, son of Mr. and Mrs. Newton Townsend, Shelton, is taking his senior year of high school in Bogenhofen, Austria, at the St. Peter am ttart Seventh Day Adventist Academy. All of his classes are taught in German. tte says the school is located in a small and very pretty village near Br~lunau. ]'he village is supposed to be more than 900 years old. During October, a two-week tour of Czechoslovakia and East Germany is planned for all of the American students who are attending the school. Another trip is planned later in the school term. On his way there, he had an opportunity to stop over in Munich, Germany, and Salisburg, Austria, both of which he found in teresting. ran MiniGrants will be awai'ded to teachers, teams of teachers and school service personnel, who submit proposals to the ISD's through the local school districts. Individuals and groups outside the school system - non-public school people, community or civic groups, for example - will submit project proposals directly to the ISD's. Applications must be received by local school districts by Nov. 1, and by ISD's Nov. 8. Winning proposals will be announced in mid-December. Dr. Richard E. Mould, state ESEA Title III Administrator, stressed that these individual and small group grants are intended to provide immediate and direct assistance for classroom activities - in or out of the school building. Within the guidelines established by Bruno's staff, a wide range of activity is possible - and encouraged - to provide instruction and enrichment for children. "We are quite certain that there are many, many good educational ideas held by people in the field, and a lot of them require relatively few - but often unavailable - dollars to implement," Mould said. "This is an opportunity for teachers and others who have felt 'out of it' when federal grants were made. This is an opportunity for the state office to offer channels for individual initiative. Most of all, it is an opportunity to enrich the lives of children all across the state," he said. The funds will be distributed according to a per pupil formula that guarantees a minimum of $5,000 to each ISD. Intermediate district personnel will screen and select projects worth 80 per cent of their apportionment, and the state ESEA Title 1II advisory council will determine the other projects that are to receive funds. The anticipated maximum amount of funds is up to $1,000 for applications from an individual, and up to $2,500 for a team project. The application procedure has been markedly simplified when compared to typical federal fund procedures, Mould stated. "We are asking applicants to describe what the project is to accomplish, why it is important, how it is to happen, how it will be determined whether or not the project is successful, and how much it is going to cost," he said. The ESEA Title 1II administrator anticipates hundreds of applications from across the state. "We think some of them will reveal really exciting glimpses of education in this state," he said.

Page 18 - Shelton-Mason County Journal - Thursday, September 30, 1971 \ / Hugh "Dec" McSweyn By JAN DANFORD Today - September 30, 1971 marks for Hugh "Dec" McSweyn, superintendent of the State Trout Hatchery in the Skokomish Valley, the end of almost 27 years with the Game Department. He is retiring. Dec McSweyn was born in Michigan on the twelfth day of July in 1908. There he was reared; there he married, and there were born his two sons, Randall and Keith. There he lived until August of 1944 when he moved west to the Okanogan Valley with his family because of a son's asthma. The following November he began work with the Ford Hatchery out of Spokane. "The job opened up, and 1 happened to be on hand," says McSweyn. "It was just the thing for me. I was born and raised on a farm and the outdoors is my life." In 1946 he moved to the Tokul Creek Hatchery by Falls City, and was transferred to the Walla Walla Hatchery in 1948. He opened a new hatchery on the Tucannon River in 1950 and August, 1951 found him in the Skokomish Valley Trout Hatchery,where he has since remained. Dec and his wife, Hilda, have made their home on the premises. Their sons are married and there are now four grandsons and a grand-daughter. "I've always enjoyed this work," says McSweyn. "It's a year-round job. We are always working a year ahead of the crop for the following season." Hunting and fishing are his hobbies. "And I try to play golf," he adds. Dec remembers the days when steelheading was great in this area. "'The most fun I had," he declares, "was about ten years ago. The Hatchery gang would get George Valley out of bed in the very early morning- somebody grabbed his tackle, somebody else Mana handed him his ate a breakfast to the river, to ourselves," Retirement of traveling.
