By LOUISE F-WART -- 426-~925 Last Week was national 4-H week and a record crowd was noted at Achievement Night which was held at the Belfair Grade School. Grapeview's 4-H leaders, Mr. and Mrs. Lon Pdttitt, were on hand and received pins and honors due for all the time they spend with our children. The boys and girls recieved checks for the demonstrations they gave last spring. This last week two meetings were held at tile Pettitt home and several new members attended. The Mason County Park and Recreation Board met October 4 for its regular meeting and plans were made to visit all the sites owned by the county so long range Park planning will be possible. The group will meet at the Court House Sunday morning October 24 and drive to the various sites. The children of the Grapeview School were treated to a trip to the Fish Hatchery Wednesday morning and several members of Mother's Club went along as "helpers". Mothers and children found the hatchery to be a very interesting experience. My mother has been alerted to be on a two hour notice for her cornea transplant. It seems a little spooky that the donor is still walking around while my mother is waiting for the operation. I donated my eyes to the eye bank about fifteen years ago and I know I feel better with the knowledge that my eyes may help someone see when I no longer need them. I hope someone someplace will feel the same for it certainly will make my mother enjoy life more. She has a little bag all packed and is ready to go and she said as soon as she can really see she wants to go back to Hawaii and see what she missed. The mother spooks are preparing a thrilling-chilling evening of entertainment for all the little spooks of Grapeview to be held at the Grapeview Firehall the evening of the 30th at 7:30 p.m. Tuesday morning a meeting was held for the committee at the home of Mrs. Bruce Fulmer and final plans were made. Mrs. lone Wood suggested a great new game, a version of the "cake walk", but with bags of candy and spooky music. This is a party for all the boys and girls in our area and is looked forward to each year. Because of the distance involved it is impossible for the children to "trick or treat" so we have a big party at the firehall. A pumpkin has been set up in the store and donations from all who would like to help make the party a success will be gratefully accepted by the Mother's Club. Prizes will be given for the most original costume among the pre-school, Mrs. Olsons' room, Mrs. Watson's room and Mr. Zehe's room, and remember there will be treats and fun for all. We know it will be lots of fun. Please come. With the rash of broken bones since school started and ski season coming up remember the firehall has crutches and wheel chairs to loan in case of need. A full house was observed in the commissioners room of the Mason County Court house regarding the use or restriction of firearms on Stretch Island. The meeting was held at 11 o'clock October 12. Residents were able to state their views and a decision will be given by the Commissioners later this month. Some were in favor of "Hunting by Shotgun only" and others felt there sould be no hunting on the Island at all. Because of Nation-wide distribution, the name of the local geoduck plant has been changed from "Monarch Clams" to "Olympic Clams, Inc". This plant has hired several more people and is a growing concern. Another local business is about over for the year, the annual grape harvest on Stretch Island has almost been sold out. The last few weekends people from all over Western Washington have come seeking the delicious fruit, and on a u-pick basis the vineyards were quickly sold out. At this time only two places were left for picking and I think they will be cleaned out by the time this comes out. October 25 will be a holiday from school so Veteran's Day can be celebrated. Starting with the first issue of the paper in November I would like to have a calender of events for the month and would like to have notices of meetings and so on by October 22, so I can have November's events all lined up. The Shelton High School Drama Department presented the Children's Theatre Production of The Little Princess and Jack and the Beanstalk. Jack and the Beanstalk was an experimental type play and was greatly dependent upon the participation of the audience. This was done by having youngsters sit on the stage all around the actors. The children usually know the story and it is flexible enough that the ideas of the children could change it. One little boy really got into the act and tried to hide Jack from the giant by sitting on him, and made suggestions on how to get away and where to hide. He even had a friend help make a huge mouse hole for Jack to hide in. This really appealed to the children and was enjoyed by all. The Little Princess was a dramatic offering in the traditional manner and Laura Johnston played a very fine part as Sara, The Little Princess. The children's Theatre has performed the plays seven times and has traveled all over the county and to Renton. We are fortunate to have Mr. Tarrach as head of the drama department for he always has excellent ideas and they are well carried out for the enjoyment of the public.

In an effort to remind local citizens of fire safety rules, Chief Bill DeMiero of the Belfair Fire Dept. has made up a series of questions to be checked by those interested in making their homes as safe as possible. 1.

Is floor under wood or oil stove protected by metal, tile or cement? 5. Are walls and ceilings protected from overheated stoves and stove pipes? 6. Are matches kept away from heat and children? 7. Are there any cracks in chimney? 8. Was chimney cleaned recently, at least once a year? 9. Do stove-pipes pass through closets or attics? 10. Is gasoline ever kept in the house? Never! 11. Is kerosene used to start fires in stove? Never! 12. Should your electric iron be placed on a metal stand? Always, when not in use. 13. Are there any frayed or broken electric cords in home? 14. Are there more than two electric appliances connected to one outlet? 15. Are there only 15 amp. fuses used in light circuit? 16. Is there a screen on fireplace? 17. Do you have a fire extinguisher? Water hose? 18. Do you know how to turn in a fire alarm? 19. Do you always sleep with your bedroom door closed? 20. Will you arrange for a fire drill in your own home? OF THANKS We wish to thank our many friends and neighbors for their kindness, sympathy and beautiful flowers during the loss of our loved one. Myrtle E. Koeller (Kelly) Robert L.

Photo by Ace Comstock Another tw0-car occident near Sherwood Cr. bridge LIBRARIAN OF THE North Mason Library in Belfair, Elizabeth Gatlin, was guest speaker at last week's meeting of Belfair Chamber of Commerce. Leroy Kirkendahl, 50, of Allyn received a bump on the head and abrasions to the right elbow, treated by a private physician, in an accident near the Sherwood Creek bridge south of Allyn at 5:40 p.m. October 12. He was a passenger in a car driven by Berry W. Hodgson, 25, of Grapeview, whose '48 International truck damage was estimated at $50. Driver of the '70 Ford truck, a rented vehicle, which struck the Hodgson pickup as it attempted to make a left turn onto the Grapeview Road, was Thomas J. Cundy, 20, of Olympia. Both trucks were traveling south on Highway 3 when Cundy attempted to pass the Hodgson pickup as it made a left turn onto the Grapeview Road. Estimated damage to the U-rent truck was $200.

She sa'x6 all of~ hez ideas were merely suggesO.ons. Colorful wagons placed around town had been suggested at an earlier meeting and at this meeting some felt a "boat" theme would be more appropriate for Belfair. diane thought a hull of a boat creating a shipwreck scene would be eye-catching in one of the gardens of the shopping center. So far, none of the ideas have been officially adopted by the Chamber. It is hoped that more local business people will turn out at the next meeting to add their ideas. Following the business meeting, Elizabeth Gatlin, local librarian, told members of recent changes and future hopes of the North Mason library. She traced the history of the library back to around t950 when Dorothy Harper, about to open her drug store, donated space for a library and the local VFW donated shelves. The Belfair Women's Club, which had been working to get a library in the area, paid the $15 rent each month. Oren Clark kept the library in the drug store when he took over, but when he moved into the new building, there was no room. For a period Belfair was served only by Bookmobile service which proved unsatisfactory. Gordon McKnight offered space in the back of his shop when he opened Belfair TV in its present location and there the library still is. Hours are Fridays, 12 to 5 and Saturdays, 10 to I. This fall a bookmobile, for adult use as well as students, is making two evening stops in Belfair each month, from 6:40 p.m. each second and fourth Wednesdays until 8 p.m. New this year has been the story hour for pre-school children which was started this summer and is continuing each Friday at 11:15 a.m. Mrs. Gatlin mentioned that the library is looking for bigger quarters and asked if anyone knew of land available, large ~imbgt~,aa& ~e~o~% Ux'~xary because o[ t~ae g~eat numbez ot books available.
