NEVER POINT A GUN at anyone or anything unless you intend to kill. NEVER swing a gun in the‘ general direction of your companions. . NEVER carry a loaded gun in your car; Unload it BE- FORE you get in, load it AFTER you get out. . NEVER drag a gun behind you when climbing a fence; always push it through first. NEVER have a gun cockedl as you go through the thick underbrush. . NEVER shoot on suspiciOn! Only a “Cracker” shoots at anything unless he is sure of what it is and sees clear- ly the whole of it or thei course of the bullet. I . ALWAYS know where your. companions are BEFORE you shoot. Don’t shoot in their general direction, and: be careful of other partiesl who may be near. . ALWAYS wear a bright red hat or coat, and shoes that won’t slip or trip you. At- tention to minor details will prevent accidents. ALWAYS get permission of the owner to hunt on his property. Making your presence known to him will be an added safety factor, as hunting licenses do not give hunters the right to trespass. I ALWAYS remember that each year many are killed while hunting and even larger numbers are injured. BE CAREFUL i l 10.

Huge Mob I‘ fit Deer Seekers Deer hunting returns to nor— lopening of the 22-day 1941 sea- ,son next Sunday, meaning that ‘the doe area which was estab- lished in the eastern part of the county the past two seasons has been abolished, for which: many . hunters and Game Protector Paul Hughey are highly thankful. Two hunters were killed in the doe area the opening day 'of the 1940 season and the great con- gestion of hunters attracted to the area. by the hope of getting a deer of either sex or any size created a serious hazard to hu- man life. More Hunters Predicted However, Game Protector. Hugh- ey isn’t looking forward to the , 1941 season with any greater op- timism than before because he ,beiieVes Mason County will draw a tremendous influx of hunters due to the reputation the county has built up as the best deer area in Western Washington and also Ito the greatly increased popula- tion in the Bremerton area. Hugh- ey is of the Opinion that a large majority Of Bremerton and vicin- ity hunters will head for MaSOn ‘County, he said this week. Outside of the abolishment of the doe area, regulations govern- ing deer and bear hunting this year are essentially the same as last year. Two bear may be taken again this year, one buck deer with branched antlers. The bear season extends, however, until January 31 while the deer season closes 'October 26. ' Conditions Favorable, The prospect for good hunting is favorable, Hughey reports, for the deer population, has been in- creasing steadily and weather con— ditions the past week also, are in the hunters’ favor. ' Shooting for bear and deer is permissable between the hours of one-half hour before sunrise un- til sunset, this differing from the hours for bird shooting, which is from sunrise to 4 pm. daily. Hughey Iurges hunters to ex-. ercise care to avoid loss of ,hli' man life and wastage ofzgzpheff “Every fall after the “daunting season we find considerablejdead game,” he said. “No sportsman wants this condition to exist and we of the game department ask [the cooperation of every hunter ‘in our effort to minimize it. Shoot With Foresight “DO not kill a deer-or bear in an area from which it is im- possible to remove it and don’t wound an animal and then leave it to go away and die," were his admonitions to hunters. He added that it is essential the hunter’s big game tag be at-- tached to the antlers of the deer as soon as the kill is made and that the head not be severed from the body during transportation. All big game cards must be mailed to the game department within 30 days after the close of the season. Hughey pointed out, and DON’T FORGET TO HAVE‘ YOUR HUNTING LICENSE ON YOUR PERSON when you go into the woods, he warned. The game protector urges that all hunters cooperate vw'th the I, farmers of the county, asking per- missiOn before going on private property and being careful not to damage livestock. fences or other property. I Congressman Joe Martin, House leader and chairman of the Na- tional REPUbliCanS, visited Yak- ima Monday on a quick tour of the eight western states to meet with the party members and ad- herents who were called together to meet the leader and learn about in current legislation, as Well as instill new life and spirit in this state, under the lead of Governor Arthur Langlie. He was .accom- panied by Henry Fletcher, former national chairman, Will Reed, na- tional committeeman, Mrs. Urqu- hart, committeewoman, Mrs. Nat- wick, vice chairman for the state, and other leaders from various sections. Mason County was represented at the Yakima session by Ed Faubert, Harold Lakeburg, Reg Sykes and Grant C. Angle. Joe Martin, who is a hard-head- ed and crusading New Englander whose energy explains why he was chosen national leader of his party, urged that Republicans must capture at least fifty seats in the House, including some from this state, to avert a catastrophe in the destruction of the two- party system _and the American way of life. and a one-party, one- man control of the nation now on the WaY~ “Although it is close to being too late.” he stated in one talk, "there 1s a feeling of confidence in the eight states visited on the present tour that the public is alarmed and will turn to the Re- publicans in next year’s elections, if they‘are wise in their choice and action.

All this while appealing for unity and support from all the people, including the more than 22 million who did not support the President in election and do not agree with much that has been done in the name of de- fense emergency. ‘ SIIIIEDUIED the Kiwanis Club and Bill Dickie: I l l CADET DAVID WISS Uncle Sam doubtless has many brothers serving in his armed ser- vices but probably few brothers serving in the same branch of the service at the same location. So the record of two Shelton broth~ ers, Donald and David Wiss, sons of Mr. and Mrs. Lantz Wiss of 1725 Summit Drive, is probably fairly unique. Both are now stationed at the. Corpus Christi, Texas, training field with the U. S. Naval Air Corps, Donald with rank of Ensign, David a Flying Cadet working on the last lap of his course to becoming an Ensign. David's last letter home said he would be taking his 20-houn check, one Of the last steps to earning his rank of Ensign, at the first good weather opportun- ity. That letter, incidentally, was written while the terrific hurri-, SECOND DAMPEST SEPTEMBER F0 R 4.90 Inches Rain Past Month, But Year Still 8 Inches Below Normal For Period Shelton’s second wettest Sept- ember was written into the Ray- onier weather bureau records by Weatherman Bernard Winiecki yesterday with a total of 4.90! inches of precipitation being reg- istered during the 30-day period. The only wetter September on the ten-year record at the Ray- Onier weather bureau occurred away back in 1933, when 6.31 in- lehes of dampness‘was recorded. The average September precipi- tation for Shelton is only 2.48 in-‘ ches, according to the Rayonier bureau’s figures, so this past month Was almost twice normal dampness. Rain occurred on 17 days with traces on two other days, Wi-I nieeki‘s table for the month shows. Still Short Of Average 1 This area, however, is still [almost eight inches short of nor- mal rainfall for the first three- quarters of the year. The nine months to date in 1941 have pro- duced 30.42 inches of rain while normal dampness over that per- iod would be 38.04 inches, the Rayonier bureau records show. Carrying the same line Of thought a step farther, with but three months left to go 1941 still stands a fair chance of being the driest year in Shelton’s recorded‘ weather history for the 30.42 inch total to date leaves 18.24 inches of rain to fall in last quarter of the year before that 48.66 inch record low total set in 1938 is reached. Ahead Of Driest Year However, the first nine months of 1938 totalled only 27.89 inches of rain, about three inches less than the same period this year, so the last three months this year will have to show quite a slacken- ing of pace. Other minor data on September weather finds the month’s highest temperature 74-degree readings taken on both the 7th and 24th, the lowest 38-degree readings on the 20th and 2lst, the greatest daily range 32 degrees on the SHELTON RECORD" in order to set a new dry record" 23rd, only ONE day recorded as clear, 14 as partly cloudy, and 15 as cloudy. GRAPEVIEW HAS 3.19 INCHES IN SEPTEMBER Grapeview, Oct. 1.-——Weather Ob- server Walter Eckert reported ‘to- day that September deposited 3.19 inchescf precipitation upon this grape growing locality during 16 days of rain during the month. A maximum temperature read- ing of 76 degrees was recorded on the 24th with a minimum for the month of 42 degrees on the 15th. Greatest daily range was a 29 degree span on the 23rd. Four days were listed as clear, eight as partly cloudy, and 18 as cloudy. Light fog was noted in the early mornings of the 8th, and 22nd through 25th. September brought a very poor Indian summer, Mr. Eckert ob- served. DAUGHTER BORN TODAY Mr. and Mrs. George A. Carey of Brinnon became parents today of a baby daughter born at Shel- ton Hospital.

However, it did not strike Corpus Christi di- rectly, although it was felt there, but the wind velocity reached 110 miles an hour 75 miles away, Da- vid’s letter said. Ensign Donald’s present duties consist of instructing Flying Ca- dets and acting as test pilot. Al- though he doesn’t admit it him- self, David says Don is the most popular test pilot at the field as he knows his flying thoroughly and has a faculty for imparting his knowledge to Cadets under his supervision. David, however, hasn’t been allowed to train un- der his big brother’s tutoring, he writes. Ensign Wiss graduated from Irene S. Reed high in 1934 and Cadet Wiss in 1936, both partici- pating prominently in athletics here. I CITY, P. U. D. AND I COUNTY BUDGETS COME UP MONDAY Final 1942 Figures To Be Set By Three Public Agencies At Open Hearings Here B-day is Monday. Budgets, budgets, budgets, budgets. ' Yep, four budgets —— city, coun- ty, and P.U.D.——come up for final airing. next Monday. The county commissioners tee off first, in their battle with fig— ures, facing the hazard of a $15,- 000 deficit between estimated in- come and estimated expenditure. needs which must be crossed be- fore they can hole out on the last green. They start at 2 o‘clock but it may take the greater part Of the week to finish this match. The city council, P.U.D. 1 and P.U.D. 3 commissioners have eight O’clock evening bouts with their arithmetic problems, the former in the city hall council chambers, P.U.D. 1 in the dis- trict offices at Potlatch and EU. D. 3 in its Offices in the Anglei Building. The council hasn’t a particularly difficult course to follow this year, will be aiming chiefly at seeing how low a levy it can set and still not endanger the com- fortable cash balance the city now enjoys, rather than worry- lng about where sufficient funds can be dug up to cover estimated needs for 1942. The P.U.D. commissioners, too, have a fairly cut-and—dried course mapped ‘out, for they’ve already balanced their.income and outgo pretty closely and 'are merely giving the taxpaying public the opportunity it deserves to voim any protests against items in- cluded in the budget or tax levies the commissioners will set. Safeway Opens Annual Canned Sale Tomorrow With a large fresh stock of goods from which to choose, the local Safewty store is holding its annual Canned Food Sale this week according to Roy Maddux, manager. A large advertisement LY F SM ‘RECORD MARK WIIIIIII REACH III P. (l. HERE First 3 Quarters Show Gross Sales Volume Of $21,032.49 With Best Period TO Come; $1500 Gain On 1940 So Far Shelton postoffice staff’mem- bers set their sights on a $30,000 gross sales volume for 1941 yes- terday after learning that the first three quarters of the year had brought in a $21,032.49 total, some $1500.54 ahead of 1940’s to- tal in the corresponding three quarters. 1940 set a record gross sales volume at the Shelton postoffiee V ,with its total gross sales of $28,- 643.06, so if the final quarter of 1941 does no better than equal last year’s final quarter that $30,000 total will be surpassed. Every quarter of 1941 has shown, a gain over the corresponding‘” quarter of last year’s record vol- ume, Postmaster Miss Jessie Knight’s records show. The first quarter gained $114.91 over its corresponding quarter of 1940, the second quarter was $499.11 ahead Of 1940's second quarter, while this third quarter just closed leaped $886.52 ahead of the July—August-September period last year, Miss Knight’s compilations reveal. This past July—August-Septem- ber quarter showed a gross sales volume of $6,852.16, slightly be- low the totals Of each of the two preceding quarters of this year but still a substantial gain over the same quarter of a year ago. The third quarter of the year has con- sistently run below the other three quarters of the year, postoffice records show. A $9000 total in the Christmas rush quarter coming up will shoot the Shelton postoffice over that $30,000 mark, and since the Christ mas quarter last year had a $9,- 271.78 total and in view of the consistent gain over last year . shown in the first three quarters, the postoffice staff feels that $30,- 000 mark will be as easy as fall- ing Off a,log, while amew annual volume record is even more cer- tain. Lumbermen’s New Furniture Store, Opening Friday Grand Opening Of the Lumber- men’s Mercantile CO. new furni- ture department on Third street is scheduled for this week with a large announcement ad on page ten of today’s paper. The new furniture store is an 18x36 structure, built right on to the front of the.warehouse, and even with the front of the com- pany garage. All the grounds in front Of the new building will be landscaped with lawn and flow- ers, and a lattice work will be erected to hide the railroad tracks running between warehouses one and two. The building itself is built in the style of a big colonial man— sion, with two big windows in front serving as show windows. The warehouse will continue, to serve as storage space for furni- ture, but construction of a back wall will hide it from interfering with the interior beauty and ar— I rangements of the front display room. ' Both the first floor,'which will be at street level, and the second floor will be used for furniture display space, allowing a much larger and more efficient. show- ing of furniture than was possible before. With the new building, painted white and trimmed with green, and the landscaping planned, a. definite improvement will have been made in the beautification of this particular part of the city. In addition to the Opening of the new furniture department, the L. M. Co. is also staging their annual Canned Food Sale this on page three of today's Journal carries further details of the event. weekend, with a large variety of economically ~ priced items to choose from. 4 LAY INSTRUCTIONS FIRST AID COURSE COMMENCING MONDAY A special Red Cross first aid course for Lay Instructors is to be held in Shelton starting Mon- day, Myron Lund, Mason County Red Cross chairman, announced. This course will be Open to any person who has completed the Red Cross advanced first aid course within the past three years. It will be held every night from Monday through Friday in the courtroom in the courthouse, starting at 7:30 pm. All those who successfully complete the course will be authorized to teach Red Cross first aid. Harold Berentson, formerly vice-principal of the Everett high school and now National Field Director of First Aid for the Red Cross, assisted by those who have completed the special course in former years, will conduct the class. Mr. Berentson has had wide experience in the teaching and promoting of first aid and is certain to bring many interesting subjects to his class. Mason County is particularly fortunate in securing Mr. Berent- son at this time, as Chapters throughout the state faced 'with the. demands made upon them by groups participating in the Na- tional Preparedness Program for First Aid Instruction, are clam- oring for this service of the Red Cross. Thirty people, from all sections of the county, have already ex- pressed a desire to take the In- structor‘s Course. It will not be necessary for those who have not as yet signified an intention to take this course to register, but the Chapter would like all those who are interested and intend to take the course to contact Lorrel Seljestad or Walter Spinharncy, chairman and vice-chairman, re- spectively, of first aid, or Chap- ter Chairman Lund. ’Itle-Iv
