SHEEIOR TO PLAY BREMERTON GRID TEAM FRIDAY EVE Chastised Prep Clubs To Meet In Night Game At Navy Yard Field Friday Shelton football fans will be able to see the Highclimbers in gridiron action at least once more this season for they will play Bremerton, their bedfellows in the State High School Athletic Association‘s “doghouse” this coming Friday evening in a night game at Bremerton. The game 'will start at eight o'clock under the floodlights of Roosevelt Field in the Navy Yard metropolis. Both Bremerton and Shelton were suspended from playing dur- ing the remainder of the season against teams in the State Ass’n but will play each other inas- much as both are being chastised for starting football practice be— fore September 1. Officials of both schools are awaiting the outcome of their request that the suspension or- der, invoked September 27, be reconsidered by the state asso- ciation. A decision is expected to be reached sometime this week. City Supt. H. E. Loop has ad- dressed individual appeals to each member of the 20-man represent- ative assembly of the state as- sociation which recommended the suspension and so far has receiv- ed nothing but sympathetic re- plies with promises to vote in favor of reconsideration and a lighter punishment, he said. Although the team has been suspended from further play with teams in the association, Coach Walt Hakola has been working the Highclimber squad out at Loop Field the past few days and ,says his lads will be in shape to play Friday. night.

Mrs. Ford’s maid- en name was Florence G.’ Carrier. After their arrival ‘in, Mason County five more children were born to them, Minnie, Earl, Susie, Ira and Helen, the last named be- ing the youngest and born in Shelton April 6, 1903. The family homestead in Upper Satsop Valley has been their home through more than half a cen- tury, now improved to a comfort- able farm. Mr. Ford will be 81 in November and Mrs. Ford is now 77 with both enjoying fair health. Early—Day Lumberman While clearing the land for the homestead, Mr. Ford and his brother, Will, turned to the timL her then covering the region and built a small mill which was op- erated for many years to supply the needs of the settlers in that district with lumber for their homes, and in later period to fur- nish a surplus for a‘l‘ugmber yard in Shelton. The mill was closed in. 1929 and the Fords have since retired to the farm. The mill was an ingenius ar- rangement and its power was furnihhed by a traction engine which had many uses, first on the mill and in the mill the drive pulley was connected with the carriage and saws and also to a drive shaft to run a planet- The caterpillar tread made it possible to haul a. well loaded truck over an ordinary road and to deliver the lumber to settlers or to the Peninsular Railroad which was near by. This plan was used as far back as 1905 and was the original idea from which the present caterpillar machines have been adapted to modern log- ging.

The commissioners called in the office heads to do the par- ing on the theory that they knew better where reductions could be made than the board itself. The task of shaping the final budget probably will take up most of this week. No figures had been turned into the auditor's office at press time today on the final 1942 budget for Public Utility Dis- trict No. 1, which was consid- ered last night at the district’s offices at Potlatch.

The .city dads wrestled with until midnight, then passed Ordinances 336 and 337 (after suspending regular rules of order to allow final pass- age on the same night the meas- ures were introduced) providing for a 14-min levy for current ex- pense purposes, a reduction of one mill over. the 1941 levy, plus 2.25 mills for bond redemption and in- terest, the same as last year, and a budget totalling $57,085. A pay boost of $10 per month was provided for in this budget for appointive city employes. The budget as finally adopted follow- ed the finance committee’s rec- ommendation as to millage and total figures, although several changes, particularly in regard to the salaries mentioned above, were made in individual items in the budget as recommended by the finance committee. Assessed Valuation Higher Although the millage for cur- rent expensc was reduced for 1942, the 14 mills set last night will still raise more money than this year's 15 mills due to the substantial increase in valuation on Shelton property. The 14-mill man Injured Yesterday on New Transformer Electricity reached'families in the Deckerville district West of Matlock last Friday as the first “juice” was turned through newly completed Public Utility District 3 lines extending from the Mat— lock lines of the district. Some ten miles of new lines .were placed inuse serving 15 fam- i l ilies. Ladies ,bf the Matlock Grange living in the Deckerville area, highly pleased with the ar- rival of electricity in their homes, yesterday served a full-course country chicken dinner in the Mat- lock grange hall to members of the P.U.D. crew which construc- ted the extension. The occasion was marred some- what by an accident to Walter Bu- esig, member of the crew, who suffered arm and leg burns from the live wires as he worked on a transformer on the new extension Monday morning. Fortunately a light fuse burned out at the short- circuit created by his body and the circuit was automatically cut out saving him from more serious injuries. He was taken to Shelton hospi- tal where his 'condition is reported as not serious. . P.U.D. 3 has now turned its at— tention to the Cloquallum and Lost Lake extension, Manager E. W.

FORMER SHELTON‘SCULPTOR’S WORK EXHIBITED IN SEATTLE Miss Stumer spent all of her early life on Hood Canal. Later she went to art school in San Francisco, where she received the highest award given by that school; then to. New York Where she was again recognized as an artist of extraordinary gifts. She returned to her home for a year and had her own studio in Seat— tle Where she was chosen by the Seattle Chamber of Commerce to execute a stone panel for the door- way. Soon afterwards she went to Paris where she was the first artist to receive criticism from Desprian, one of the two greatest living sculptors. She exhibited her own work both in New York and Paris. Her studio is at present in Olympia, levy for current expense will raise $32,150.74, while other sources of estimated income from which the remainder of the $57,085 budget total will be derived includes $10,- 000 from state liquor board prof— its, $6,344.26 from motor vehicle excise taxes, $4,560 from the city garbage collection system, $3,000 from licenses and several small miscellaneous items. , The bond redemption and in-' terest millage will raise $5,123.50 I on 1942 valuation figures for the; city, the council feeling it would be good business to continue to redeem the 1932 funding bonds which draw 6% interest at the same rate which has enabled the city to be 13 years ahead of sched- ude on paying them off, according to City Treasurer Ed Faubert’s report last night. Water Budget Lowered Under the heading of proprie- tary functions, the council set a budget totalling $33,598.75 for the water department, and $600 for the dock fund, the former reduced from $71,857.50 for this year (due to provision for the $50,000 rev- enue bond issue of 1941) and the latter reduced from $1060. By departments, the final bud- get for 1941 city operation pro— vides $2,760 for the clerk’s office (raised from $2400), $880 for the treasurer’s office (raised from $820), $1225 for the attorney (no change), $625 for the city engi- neer (no change), $195 for the police judge (no change), $800 for city hall maintenance (reduced police department (reduced from $6920). $3830 for the fire department (re- duced from $3970), $10,260 for health and sanitation (reduced from $10,960), $400 for industrial insurance (no change). $21,330 for ‘the city street fund (raised from $17,564.41), $4,500 for the library fund (raised from $4000), $1,430 for the park fund (raised from $1,220), and $1000 each for the L.I.D. guaranty fund and emer- gency warrants (no change from this year), with an additional item of $100 for taxes on property sub- ject to L.I.D. assessments being provided in the 1942 budget which wags not listed in this year's bud~ ge . Council Agenda Light Thursday Another brief session was writ- ten into city council records Thursday evening with nothing of major importance being transact- ed. The sidewalk committee report- ed the existence of three bad sidewalk conditions between 7th and 8th on Franklin, on the north side of Cota between 10th and 11th, and the north and east sides at 12th and Cota. The council passed a motion that the street committee get estimated cost of surfacing the west side parking strip on First street from Grove to Goldsbor- ough creek in conjunction with the surfacing of the Shell Service Sta- tion at First and Grove. Power to act was given the committee if it felt it could arrange a satis- factory contract. Heuston Appointed As Ito-Employment Head Appointment by Gov.
