Weevil Is Looking For Winter Home Have you noticed a little long-nosed beetle about 1/8 inch long trying to get into your house? This could be the strawberry root weevil looking for a place to spend the winter. Outside of being a nuisance they will cause no damage to your house or furnishings. Next spring they will show themselves trying to get outside to again start feeding by cutting little notches from ornamental leaves. The vacuum cleaner is probably the most effective method to dispose of the little crawlers. If you have such little boarders and want them identified, scoop up a few and bring these to our Cooperative Extension office, basement of the Post Office in Shelton and have them identified. Another household boarder is the carpet beetle. They are present for another purpose - to feed on wool, clothing, etc. This one needs to be killed with an insecticide. Ask for bulletin "Household Insects and Their Control" available from the Extension Office. LABOR: ONE of the processes by which A acquires property of B.

The fence screens the three homes from the highway. Mrs. Ardys Jensen and Mrs. Frances Radtke have planted new window boxes. Their newly planted lawns are sending up little green whiskers. Mrs. Jensen has begun teaching art classes in her home. Thomas R. Caton has completed the "Tobacco Road Singer", an original character portrait for the Schramm Galleries in Fort Lauderdale, Fla.

Mrs. Willa Mills and Mrs. Ardys Jensen were again hostesses for the monthly potluck dinner in the clubhouse. Thirty-six persons attended. Piano music for group singing was filrnished by Mrs. Frances Radtke after dinner and several tables of pinochle were in play.

Mr. and Mrs. Curley Hagerup entertained Mr. and Mrs. Richard Traxler and sons from Huntington Beach, Calif.

A Favorite the family out ervlce en By NANCY BLOOMFIELD HOODSPORT - On the evening of Sept. 16, four Hoodsport Forest Service men were called from their dinner tables and departed almost immediately for the Gifford Pinchot National Forest. Dry weather and east winds had struck the western forests, closing down logging operations and causing fires. Jack Smith, Verne Rosenburg, Don Collins and Harold Drake went to the "John Fire" near Wind River to lend firefighters there, a hand. Their stay was short, as it was only one and a half days later that they were transfered to the Mt. Hood National Forest, in Oregon. Bill Taylor and Lynn Card had bid farewell to their families and were already on the Mt. Hood fire. Sky Hook fire was raging out of control in wilderness area of the Columbia Gorge and sparks jumped, starting a spot fire named Tom Like. No roads had been cut into the wilderness area, so all firefighters were transported in by helicopters and made their way from there. The army rolled out of Fort Lewis with their kitchen and set up at the base camp. Food was flown into the two spike camps for the hungry firefighters, providing some pretty decent meals. The spark-set Tom Like fire grew to about 1,600 acres before the men could get it contained. Sept. 25, ten days after leaving Hoodsport, the men were home. Kids were filling dad in on all the important happenings, while moms sorted gear from laundry in preparation for restoring fire packs to be used at a later date. In previous articles regarding Marina's located along Hood Canal, I have made an unintentional error in reporting, so please note. The Hoodsport Marina operated by the Dahlquists will be open every day, except Tuesday, during the fall and winter season. Some nice silvers are being taken in the canal now. Although Montesano won the game Thursday, you would never have known by watching the Hood Canal Jr. High student body. Following the game the Girls League sponsored a corn feed for fellow students. A small donation entitled the kids to eat all they wanted, participate in games and attend the dance, which followed supper. Everyone was in high spirits, with hardly a wallflower to be seen. This afternoon, Hood Canal will play Hoquiam, here. A hearty Hoodsport welcome to Elsa Steading, mother of Mrs. Wesley Gain. Elsa is residing with the Gain family, since her move here from Portland, Ore. A special contest begins this Sunday at Hood Canal Community Church and will run through the month of October. If you are a member of the Sunday School, bring a new guest Sunday and receive a key. At the end of the month all keys will be tried in a treasure chest lock and some lucky key will reward the bearer with treasures untold. More than 25 friends and relatives enjoyed the fun and games Wednesday night at Karen Barnes, where Karen and Kathy James were co-hostesses at a bridal shower. Prize winners during the evening were Teresa West and Julie Dickinson. For their hearty efforts booby prizes were awarded to Pam Bloomfield and Kirsti Dillon. Gifts were opened by bride-elect Sheryl James and refreshments were served. Several more young people have left or soon will leave Hoodsport for a higher education. Kim Michaels returned to Western Washington State College to begin her second quarter sophomore year. Kim, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Bob Michaels, is a language major. Darlene Gray, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Norman Gray, is off to Central Washington State College. Darlene is a junior, Psychology major.

The game played at Loop Field in Shelton had a score of 27 to 13 in the C.T.A.'s favor. The O.N.O. Club met Wednesday night at Mrs. Emery Winters home. Co-hostess for the evening was Mrs. Lou Evans. A very interesting account of a trip to the Samoan Islands and a trip to Europe was given by Mrs. Gordon Dickinson. Fourteen members and Mrs. Evans' sister of Port Angeles were present to relax and enjoy the travelogue. Dessert in the form of strawberry short cake was served and the evening came to an end. A record breaking crowd of 400 entered Mrs. Pill's class Friday for the third grade fair. Displays were many and varied, more than can be mentioned here, but of special interest to the wee folk was a hen with three tiny chicks. In another cage, Mrs. Cat and her kittens could be seen, well the kittens were there. Mrs. Cat had been escorted to the far end of the room to be introduced to the live bird display. Howdies were said and Mrs. Cat was rushed back to her family. To make this the fair of all fairs, Mrs. Les Heines contributed cones of cotton candy for all elementary grade students. Some very wet, scattered drops and a brisk breeze accompanied Nancy Bloomfield and daughters Pare and Vicky to the Puyallup Fair, Friday. The shortest and probably most interesting trip began when Pare checked into the 4-H building office, where she was assigned the kitchen she used for the bread baking activity. With time on their hands waiting for Pam, Nancy and Vicky became interested in a dog handling demonstration put on by 4-H kids.
