A small black dog had to be dispatched by a bullet from P0- lico (Illiel’ Andy Hanson’s gun because the little' dog had in- dulged, as dogs allowed to wan~ dcr loose sometimes will, in a feast of (ll-ad salmon. The little. dog was suffering from an acute case of salmon sickness, from which their is no relief, veterinarians say. Froth— ing at the mouth, running blind- ly in circles from pain. the un- fortunate nnimal got too close, , lo the railroad tracks and had one paw crushed by a passing logging train. So. all you dog owners, if you wish to avoid similar trag— edy to your lovod pct, do him a big favor and keep him strict— ly under your thumb until that annqu Seasonal danger from dead salmon is over. The salmon are now running up the creeks and streams to spawn, after which they die and lodge on the banks to be tempting morsels to dogs who happen upon them. ‘SACRIHTESNES’E _ BE MADE BY ALL, 0.P.M.

At yesterday's meetings in Olympia, Director Shannon men' tioned a few of several hundred items of daily use which will be entirely off the public market af- ter November 1, and it was Mr. Faubert’s impression after listen- ing to the talk that small busi— ness is going ,to be hit hard. “There is no use hiding the fact that there is nothing we can do to produce sufficient materials for defense and civilian necessi- ties simultaneously," Shannon told his audience, Faubert report-l ed. The Army and Navy needs come first, civilian needs second in the defense program on which the United States is now engaged Fau- bert said the speaker stated. V.F.W.

Feminine Physical Education Stu-i dents (.‘onvoyed Safely To And From Classes Daily; He Hasn't Lost 0111‘ Yet Charlie might be a bit spit"de if you came right out and called him a gigolo, but the evidence “agin” him is at least sufficient to earn him the. nom—tle-plulne of “ladies’ man.” He‘d have a hard time convinc- ing a jury otherwise now, after three years of what he’s been doing. It's perfectly harmless, in fact it’s pretty doggone cute, but all the same, it definitely makes Charlie a. “ladies’ man.” Dog-gone cute, too, is just the word in describing Charlie’s ac- tions, for Charlie, you see, is a dog. His mother was a full blooded rocker spaniel, his father a small black shepherd. Charlie. belongs to Dan Bennett, who doctors the aches and pains which Prof. Loop's school busscs de— vclop. Charlie‘s right name is Skip, but somewhere along the line he picked up his new name. maybe because he has a few of the char- ‘ acteristirs of a “good time Char- lie." He’s A Girl Convoycr Anyuav, lle’s Charlie to tho scores of girls hc‘cscorts each school day to and from their gym classes. Almost since the first day the Bennetts took Charlie, pardon, Skip, into their house- hold he began accompanving the girls in junior and senior high physical education classes on their rather lengthv rambles between their school buildings and the gymnasium. Charlie, er, Skip. doesn’t pay any attention to the boys who also have gym classes, nor does he so much as look at other dogs or even take time out to chase cats or cars While he is attending to his duties of convoy— ing his girl friends. Charlie‘s heart is 100% true to his girl friends. even tho’ he numbers them in the hundreds, and he’s probably caninely proud of the fact that he hasn’t lost a Single unit from his many convoys yet. Has It Down Pat Pronptly every morning, every school morning, that is, because Saturdays and Sundays don’t fool him a bit, Charlie is waiting on the front steps of either the jun- ior or senior high school, he knows which morning to be where, to escort the girls to the gym. He waits there until their classes are over and escorts them back to school again. And he knows ex- actly when the junior high girls are through at the gym and the senior high girls start, for when that moment comes he races mad- ly from one school to the other so he won’t miss a trip. , And he hasn’t missed one in three years now, either. Charlie takes his duties so seriously that if his lunch is a little late. yes, he reports home promptly each noon, he’ll leave it uneaten so he won’t be tardy for his first after- noon convoy. When the girls switched their P.E. classes to the new gym early this school term Charlie quickly adjusted himself to the new or- der. The only things that puzzle him are holidays and temporary switches ill class schedules. You could hardly expect him to know about. such things. Aunt Jemimah To Be At M & S Food Store Saturday Aunt Jemimah, that legendary old character of the pancake world, will make a personal ap- pearance in Shelton this Satur- day at the M&S Food Store. .The jolly old colored lady has Visited Shelton before and has a host of friends here made on previous Visits, It is her custom to serve all who come to see her. lucious pancakes, and this Satur- day will be no exception. Churchill Spirit Queenie, champion English bull— dog, wears a gob’s hat, a couple of medals and a determined ex- pression in her canine imperson- ation of the “Churchill spirit.” dent SHELTON, WASHINGTON, Thursday, October 30, 1941. l i l l l l l l i l I Maybe you thought memorizing all those dates in your history classes was bothersome, but you didn’t have anything on today‘s sportsmen. Right at this time of year it behooves the active nimrod to keep his wits about him, else he’s liable to find himself shooting at some prey which he shouldn’t. Just for instance, the skip—date upland bird season which the Game Commission has been set- ting the past several years keeps a hunter hopping to keep straight. He has to watch his dates mighty closely or he’s likely to be shoot- ing on a closed Saturday or a closed Monday. Last weekend, for instanCe, the open dates were Saturday and Sunday, but this coming weekend they’re Sunday and Monday. And that's how it goes. He only knows for sure that Sundays and Wednesdays are consistently eligible shooting dates during the upland bird season, but those Saturdays and Mondays are the trapdoors he has to watch out for. ' Some Start, Some Stop Another thing Mr. Nimrod has to keep close check on right now is the opening of new seasons and the closing of others. Last Sunday the deer season closed, this Friday the fresh water fish- ing and the squirrel hunting sea- sons come to an end. Then next Sunday the elk sea- son opens. And currently, the migratory waterfowl, bear and rabbit, hunt- ing seasons are still in full swing, while the upland bird season still has five of its eleven jump dates yet to.go, giving the sportsman quite a noggin-full of dates and regulations to juggle into proper I ,l lTONIGHT—Hood 'Canal Sports— mens Ass’n October meeting, 8 p.m., Hoodsport school.

HISTORY LESSONS—SIMPLE COMPARED TO REMEMBERING HUNTING DATES AND RULES COMMUNITY CALENDAR h$‘_ place, not to overlook the addition- al fact that salmon fishing is just about at its best right now, al- though there are no seasonal re- strictions on this popular pastime. Getting down to cases, the elkl season which opens Sunday, will find numerous Mason County resi- dents heading mitted) . through November 11. make life interesting, if not con— fusing, for the sportsman is thel fact that bear cannot be shot within the areas open to elk hunt— ing during the elk season. Just Another Detail And the elk hunter has to be sure of where he is all the time, too, for only certain areas within the three Westside counties where elk hunting is permitted are open to shooting of the big game ani- mals with the huge antlers. Oh, yes ! matter of shooting hours. 4 p.m. Then, of course, there are the numerous exceptions to each rule which he must look out for in addition.

Leading the pack are Lobert Bell and Mrs. Myrtle Tabke with 63 points out of a possible 80, figuring the best four scores they of the sweepstakes. Both have made their soothsaying pay off with $5 checks on single occas- ions during the first five weeks. I Three others, Jim Tough, Bob Tabke and Jack Kalinoski, are ' treading on the leaders’ heels with 62 points, while 14 others have totals of 60 or 61. At the halfway post there are still 86 forecasters who have not missed more than one week in the sweepstakes and are therefore still eligible to continue the quest for the three sweepstakes cash prizes of $25, $15 and $10. Of those 86 eligibles at this point, 66 have scored 55 points or more and are therefore still very much in the running for the ,three sweepstakes awards. This doesn’t mean those below 55 points still haven’t a chance to rally in- to the prize group, but they’re under a handicap and will have to materially increase their week- ly averages to gain the payoff.

' The kickoff is scheduled for 2:30 o’clock. Neither the Bull- dogs nor the Highclimbers have . been able to ring up a victory this season to date. Coach Walt Hakola said last l night he has been forced to shift Donn Nelson, starting tackle, for most of the season to an end post to help out the flank Situation due to the in- ’ eligibility of Duane Dickinson and the injury to Earl Lums- den. Two Highclimber backfield l regulars have more or less I serious leg injuries which will at. least handicap their play if I not keep them out of the game, llakola said. FOOD STAMPS TO BE, PURCHASED THRUI ‘MAlI. HEREAFTER Shelton Office Closed After Yes- terday’s Business; Orders Go- ing Thru Thurston Co. Effective yesterday, the Shel- ton office for distribution of food stamps under the Surplus 'Marketing Administration was closed and hereafter Mason Coun- ty participants in the food stamp plan will have to order their stamps by mail from the Thurston County food stamp of- fice, Mason County Welfare Ad- ministrator Glen Ratcliff announ- ced to‘day. , ' The food stamp plan was placed in operation in Mason County late last November and in the inter- vening period a. total of $34,654 in cash has been spent by eligible participants in the plans, for which they received food stamps with redeemable cash value to- talling $55,081, the county wel- fare department’s records show. Under the fool stamp plan half the value of the actual cash paid for the stamps is added in free blue stamps which are redeem- able in certain specified “surplus’f foods, thus increasing the pur- chasing power of stamp plan par- ticipants by 50 per cent. Thus during the nearly one year the local food stamp office was op- erated a total of , $17,327 in value was added to the sum' the par- ticipants actually paid in cash for the stamps. Closing of the Shelton stamp office does not terminate opera- tion of the plan in Mason County, it merely means that local par- ticipants must hereafter go to the Thurston county office or order from that point by mail to re— ceive their food stamps. Mail or- ders must be either in U. S. pos- tal money order or certified cash- ier’s checks, Administrator Rat- cliff said, as the Surplus Mar- keting Administration rules strict- ly forbid personal checks and loose currency being submitted by mail for food stamps. The peak month during the operation the food stamp plan in Mason County so far was last April, when $3,804 actual cash, or $5,706 in redeemable value in stamps were issued through the Shelton office to Mason County participants. During the month just closed the total cash paid was $2557, or stamps redeemable for $5335.50 in actual value, the stamp office records show.

So if you love your gobbage can you’d better spike it down right pronto. ( However, Police Chief Andy Hansen and his staff have plans in. mind witch will ground any hobgoblins in human clothing who try flying too high with their pranks. “Have all the fun you want,” the police chief invites Shelton’s younger generation, “but keep it clean and free of vandalism. But we're prepared to take your broomsticks away at the first evidence of malicious destruction of property," he warned. f Wolta Jam! 66 Swamis In LUNl'l FINISHED; NEW RAlES SET Complete New Quarters Ready; Capacity Increased To 54 Adult Beds; New Sched- ule Still Low Completed except for installa- a compact will increase Shelton Hospital's capacity for administering to pa- tients to 54 adult beds is now ready for use, Miss Zella Deeny, superintendent, announced today. The new unit will be a step and energy saver for nurses with its compactness. lSituated on the ground floor of the last addition to the main hospital building, the new unit also takes up the space formerly used as a driveway for the ambulance. The ambulance still has an en- trance but it is now enclosed and will be supplied with chairs and benches for patients to sit or recline upon until transferred to their beds. Thi sis on the north side of the new unit. Off the ambulance entrance to the east and south is a new lab, fully equip- ped, and at the southwest corner of the ambulance entrance a dumb waiter from the kitchen will serve the new unit. Step, Energy V Conserver' Getting into the ground floor proper of the last addition are two rooms equipped with four pa- tient beds each and with each bed in a cubicle of its own, giving more privacy than the wards without having private rooms. Be- tween the two rooms are a utility room, a diet kitchen and a bath- room. I Up in the main building other improvements have been made, also. The space on the main floor formerly used for the drug room. or pharmacy, has been made over into a nurses’ station with signal lights for all depart- mentS\of the hospital, and this station has been made accessible to the main office by a large window. Pharmacy Moved The drug room has been moved across and down the ball into space just off the diet kitchen which was formerly used for shelves and storage. A new shower and toilet room has been installed in the men’s ward, a. long needed improvement. Venetian blinds for the men’s ward and the lab in the new unit have been donated by an anoni- mous contributor, as was also all the work of fixing up the new nurses’ station. Effective November 1, a new schedule ‘of rates will go into effect at Shelton Hospital, Miss Deeny said today. Although the new schedule. will show a slight increase in rates for all depart- ments of the hospital’s operation, the rates will still be under the general scale charged in other Western Washington hospitals, she said. Schedule Still Lower . However, in view of rising costs, the board of tr'us‘tees of the Shel- ton Hospital Ass’n at its last meeting felt justified in adopting the slightly increased schedule, which call for a flat rate on ob- streptical treatments and small increases in room rates. All hos- pital bills are payable in ad- vance, the board also pointed out in setting the new schedule. Shelton Hospital is continuing its practice of giving tuberculin tests to all patients entering, thanks to facilities supplied the hospital by the Mason County Tuberculosis League, Miss Deeny pointed out. Shelton Hospital is the only one in the U. S. giving this service at the present time, she added. Past Cdm—manders 0n Legion Stage Tuesday Past commanders of Fred B.
