e inson Very active in the auxiliary to the VFW is Fae Robinson, color bearer for both District No. 5 and the local auxiliary. She has twice held the presidency, and is currently secretary-treasurer of the past presidents club of District No. 5. She is the Youth Activity Chairman forthe VFW auxiliary. Several times a year the group presents to Rainier School in Buckley clothing to be distributed as needed. They sponsor a girl in Rainier School, Robin Rockafellow, and she receives from them special gifts at Christmas and on her birthday; the auxiliary sends, to the school office, money for Robin's "snack fund", which is given to her as needed throughout the year. The VFW auxiliary has also donated in the past to the Rogers School and will be assisting the new school, which will need more equipment than can be provided by the school district. Mrs. Robinson is interested in the Exceptional Foresters, for whom the VFW Post and auxiliary presented a Halloween party. They visited the boys with freshly-baked cup cakes and apple cider. The young men were asked what sort of entertainment they preferred. "Just talk to us," they said, "we'd rather have just visiting than a lot of games." Volunteers often take the boys to church, to Sunday School, or just for an outing. "More people are needed," Fae states, "just to be friends with the boys. They enjoy conversation so much." Fee Robinson, although born in Tacoma, thinks of Shelton as her home town. "I started first grade here." she explains, "and was graduated from Shelton High School. I met my husband, Wayne, here and we were married in Shelton and FAE ROBINSON fashions candles in many forms and sizes. "I'm always saving odd and interesting bits of junk materials," she laughs, "and eventually I find uses for them." Twelve years or so ago, she became interested in the making of candies. She fashioned them, in various forms and sizes and types, for herself, for gifts, for bazaars. She uses either paraffin or regular candle wax, melting it over very low heat in a three-pound coffee can filled to no more than the half-way mark. "The wax could easily catch fire," she warned, "if the can until the candle is hardened, after which the bottom may be cut from the can and the finished candle pushed out. Hollow candles are created by the use of containers of two sizes. Place one within the other and pour wax into the larger, leaving the inside can empty to be removed after the "shell" has set. A small flat candle should be placed within the hollow to show through the outer wall of wax as it burns. Such candies are attractive when placed on a foil-covered disk of cardboard and UNICEF Is Aided By Drive About 50 youth from several churches of Shelton met at the United Methodist Church Sunday evening and went trick-or-treating for UNICEF as a part of a world-wide program of support for children. The group collected $390, and then gathered at the Methodist church afterwards for a party. The money collected will go towards helping children around the world. Some of the money, for example, may be used to help buy school supplies in Mauritius, or a regular supply of safe water in India, or protection from trachoma in Ethiopia. Dr. Richard Engan, Chairmen of Christian Social Concerns of the United Methodist Church supervised the arrangements, and many men and women helped by driving the car-loads of youth to the different sections of town. Others helped with the Halloween parties at the church Dr. Engen expressed sincere thanks to everyone who donated time, money, and help to make this year's UNICEF a success. National Guard Is Recruiting The Shelton National Guard is opening a recruiting program for the first time in six years. Three years ago, it was virtually impossible to get into the National Guard as most units were full and an enlistment freeze had been ordered. Hundreds were on waiting lists at this time. Now, as guardsmen complete their military obligation, discharges have created a limited number of vacancies. Oct. 12 was the "Kickoff" date for the state wide recruiting campaign by the Washington Army National Guard to fill vacancies as they occur National Guard recruiting in the Shelton area has set up an information center at the Armory 6th and Franklin Sts. The center, open from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. daily, has been created to inform the public and potential recruits of the opportunities now available in the Guard, and the "Try One" Today, Thursday, Nov. 4 Rotary Club luncheon, noon, Ming Tree Cafe.
