Lois Pearsall High School Spotlight A seven-year resident of Shelton is Lois Pearsall, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Clyde Pearsall. She was born in Chehalis and her birthday is November 17, 1953. Her brother, Roy , is a freshman. Lois likes the outdoors, and she plans to attend either Washington State University or Olympic College to major in forestry. "1'11 settle for just about any job that will keep me outdoors," she says, when contemplating a career. As a Shelton High School senior she studies civics, office practice, office machines, physical science and bookkeeping. She was co-president of the AFS as a junior, and has for two years been a member of the Science Club and the German Club. She has been active in 4-H work for eight years, specializing in home economies clothing and food groups. As a jtmior leader she assists in the organization of various clubs. In her freshman and sophomore years she was a member of the Order of the Rainbow for Girls and she is a member of the Episcopalean Young Churchmen. As a sophomore, as a junior 'and as a senior she has been a Girls' Athletic Club member and a member of Scarlet S. She holds a GAA letter and participated in girls' track in her sophomore year. Hiking, swimming, water skiing and snow skiing are her hobbies, and a six-day hike was a summer highlight. Fifteen persons, each bearing a 30-pound back-pack, began their trek at Quinault, crossed the low divide 'and came out at Whiskey Bend. "Lots of people do this," Lois explains. "We met groups of Boy Scouts and also entire families." Many small animals were seen as well as innumerable deer and three black bears. The hikers enjoyed both swimming and sledding. "Everyone should go on such a hike," Lois Pearsall states, "to see how lovely nature can be." Girls To Convene All girls in the Hood Canal area between the ages of nine and 14 years who are interested in joining Girl Scouts should attend the meeting to be held Tuesday at 7:30 p.m. in the Hood Canal School multi-purpose room. Parents must accompany girls, in order for them to sign up. A one dollar dues assesment may be paid at the time of enrollment. Sarah Tostevin - school teacher, newspaper woman, author, mother, homemaker, Girl Scout leader - has always found time for handicrafts. "I like to 'putter'," she laughs. Her 'puttering' has included, over the years, almost every phase of arts and crafts. Skilled and experienced and thoroughly qualified, she will instruct the Christmas Workshop to be sponsored by the Community Library Association of which she is a most active member. Mrs. Tostevin and her husband, Edwin, came to Shelton two years ago to be near their son, Dr. James Tostevin, his wife and son Carl, their only grandson. Born in South Dakota, Sarah came with her family to Mandan, N.D. in 1934. She taught school on an Indian Reservation. The Mandan Daily Pioneer had been in the family of Edwin D. Tostevin for 50 years. When he and Sarah were married, Tostevin was circulation manager, he and his brother becom.ing co-publishers upon the death of their father. Sarah, in 1935, began her employment with the Mandan Daily Pioneer as assistant to the advertising manager, gradually assuming other duties and eventually heading the society section. During a war-shortage of teachers, she was prevailed upon to take over a small school located five miles from town. Tire and gas rationing, as well as North Dakota winter weather, made commuting impossible, and no suitable living quarters were provided. One meal a day was available - at a price. "Once," she reminisces, "we were snowed in for four days, and for two of them we had nothing to eat but cookies." She taught school for 11 years before returning to the newspaper on a part-time basis. She recalls the terrific flood of 1943 that inundated presses in the basement. "Our competitor, the Bismarck Tribune," she says, pfiblis~6"d~~FbF" ~s ~it~t~ we were cleaned up. It took ten days to clean the type and to get the presses running."

In celebration of their 50th Anniversary, Soroptimist Clubs throughout the world have spent the past year working to attain certain goals. The Shelton Club met their goal by increasing club membership by 25%, contributing $5 per member to the Soroptimist Foundation, having over 50% attendance at district meeting, and in service to youth, service to the elderly, and public affairs.

Several years later the Tribune had a breakdown and the Pioneer published for them. In North Dakota, Sarah Tostevin was active in the Girl Scouts, and in both Church and Salvation Army work. As a grand finale to her newspaper career, in 1964 Mrs. Tostevin compiled and edited "Mantani", a history of Mandan and Morton County from 1738 until the time of writing. The book was published by the Mandan Chamber of Commerce. "I needed a rest," she states. The 11-room Tostevin home in Mandan was sold, and family treasures packed away or shared fashioned of white felt lavish with red sequin poinsettias. Sequins on felt ornament a net table cloth.

Rice, and Jan Donaldson, son of Mr. and Mrs. Blanton Donaldson, all of Shelton. Two hundred and fifty guests witnessed the double ring ceremony performed at 8 p.m. by the Rev. William F. Andrews. Lace covered the high neck and extended down the front of the white voile gown worn by the bride. The four-inch cuffs were covered with lace, and a white bow accented the front of the high waistline. Her veil was shoulder-length, and her Princess-style bouquet was fashioned of pink carnations and white gladioli. The bride was given in marriage by her father, and her maid of honor was Karolee Stevens who was attired in a high-waisted dress of pink flowered voile with a roll collar. Pink garnet roses and white pom-pons formed her colonial bouquet. In gowns identical to that of Miss Stevens were bridesmaids Ginger Brooks, Jody Engen and Vicki Steinbrueck. Each carried a single white carnation. In street-length versions of the bridesmaids' attire were candle lighters Lisa Marahrens and Martha Steinbom who wore wristlets of garnet roses and carnations. Ron Landis was best man and ushers were Wayne Robinson, Mark Weston and Richard Rice, brother of the bride. Miss Nancy Swanson sang "Amazing Grace" and "The Lord's Prayer".

Once upon a time in the city of Rome there lived a lad whose burning desire it was to become a baseball player. However, the poor man matured to a height no more than that of a batter's belt buckle, and he was hopelessly nearsighted. His distant vision was no good, either. Although the little chap was a difficult fellow to whom to pitch, he never connected with the ball unless some hapless hurler accidentally struck his wavering bat, and even then his fat little legs failed to convey him to first base ahead of even the slowest throw. With his many natural qualifications, he turned to umpiring and soon rose to the dizziest pinnacles of his profession. Love then entered his life in the hefty form of a female softball player.
