UTS’ IT’LL BE . 1N TERTAINMENT HIGHLIGHT Max Jensen, chief executive of Tumwater Council, pointed out that the movement is purely vol- untary as far as the boys are concerned, and they need encouragement and active sup- port of elders as well as the club sponsors to the leaders who are giving freely of their time to Scout training and better citizen-l idollar pieces, Mr. Stentz has in ship. Shelton Scouts are giving .a good account of themselves, but there is room for .more éboys to join and even more troops to share in the benefits. Rex Muger, who covers the NorthWest for the travelling staff, added more background and de- tail to the Scout moVement which has touched nine million boys in its 31 years over 77 nations with the same creed and ideals, although in dictator countries it is now in eclipse while the boys are regimented into the job of killing each other. America, he pointed out, is the last outpost of democracy and op- portunity, and training for worthy citizenship, and the responsibil- ity rests on the citizens and the civic clubs to hold the faith and carry on the training of future citizens, as measured in charac- ter rather than material gains, and in anrenduring peace. If the country of today is beset with problems which menace its fu- ture, there is the greater obliga- tion on its citizens to train youth to meet the problems of its time with strength and knowledge, for democracy cannot be forced, but must be a voluntary act of cit- izenship, appealing to better hu- man nature. He urged support for the Boy Scouts as the best agency for sound physical and mental training. the ‘ Forrest’s 63311” New Floral And Gift Shop Here With the location completely renovated and \redecorated, For- rest’s Floral and Gift Shop will open its new retail establishment at 311 Railroad Avenue this Sat- urday, according to Mrs. Irene Forrest.

Miss Ellen Opal Cay is emb Collecting old coins is particularly rare hobby Sheltonialfis, probably, but it is doubtful if anyone around here has been at it longer than Char- les W. Stentz, Shelton Hotel desk clerk. Mr. Stentz has devoted the past fifty years to this hobby, not in l a serious or active vein, but quiet- not a I l l i it himself, is not one of any great value but rather interesting nev- ertheless. His collection now num- bers something in excess of 160 'old coins which aren’t found ill general circulation nowadays. The oldest coin in his collection is an 1801 one-cent piece, one lot the large size pennies which were coined by the U. S. govern- ment from 1793 to 1857. He un- covered this ancient coin while home in Mansfield, Ohio, about 1884, Mr. Stentz recalls. Today that penny is worth approximate- ly 75 cents. 'Gets An Inspiration However, it wasn’t until 1892, just fifty years ago, that the Shelton man really began to take up his hobby seriously. He re- ceived his inspiration while he was cashier for a Mansfield, Ohio, department store, one day when an old lady bought a coal oil lanlp, on special at sent up four old half dollar pieces to pay for it. They were of the vintages of 1810, 1812, 1819 and 1825 and right then and there Mr. Stentz decided to start collecting old coins. With those four half dollar pieces as a start, he has con- 1 centrated on fifty-cent pieces ever since. He has one for every year from 1892 on, plus 24 others of earlier years. Although he has one of 1838 vintage it is from the wrong mint, else it would be worth between $300 and $600. Half Dollar Worth $10 He has in addition, two com- memorative half—dollars, one of the 1893 Columbian Exposition and one of the 1915 Panama 8 Pacific Exposition, this latter be- ing worth $10 now. Outside of his fancy for half- his collection eight large pennies, the newest being of 1853; 24 small one-cent" pieces, some of compar- atively recent date but worth more than face value because of the small number struck; 3 two~ cent pieces; 17 silver three-cent pieces, the newest being 1853; 3 nickel three-cent pieces; 7 five- cent pieces, none later than 1883; 4 silver half-dimes, none newer than 1842; 14 dimes of 1859 and earlier; an 1875 twenty-cent piece; 4 quarter-dollars not younger than 1861; and two trade dollars of 1877 and 1878. l l 20th Century T0 ' J Hold New Manager Sale This Week Celebrating the installation of a new management, the local 20th Century Food Store on Hill- crest will have a New Manage- ment Sale beginning Friday.

The great majority of the catch records were kept at Robinson’s Resort, of course, and there is where the best catches were re- ported, too, for the average catch reported at Robinson's was an eV- en seven per angler, while at Bear Gulch the average was five and the city float 4.7, Hixon’s records indicate. May \Veek Popular The week of May 25 to 31 seem- ed to be the most popular dur- ing the season, for during that period 434 anglers were recorded at the three landings, taking a total of 3,665 fish for an average of 8.44 per fisherman. The week of June 29 to July 5 ran a close second with 423 anglers going out, but they weren’t as successful as the peak Week anglers for their average was only 6.34 fish. Best weekly average :rom the standpoint of per-angler results came the week prior to the closing of the Season, October 19 to 25. when the few fishermen who did go out brought in an average of 12.5 fish each.

The period from May 11 to June 21 was the peak of the season, average catches being no lower than eight and up to the 10.4 high point during that time, Hixon's records reveal.

It is not. good for one to see 17 inch rainbows die for lack of air in the water and not be able to do anything about it. The new plantings in shallow water will have to be Changed, maybe to bass or eastern brook trout.” ' Rainbows planted in Jefferson Lake have done fine, the fresh- water fish chairman commented; and recommended that the lake be closed for about two years to give the 1940 planting time to reach spawning age. New Rainbows Grow Fast “The new rainbows being plant- ed in Mason County are sure some fish,” he complimented, “The fast- est growers I have ever seen. Five— l ruary were 8 to 9 inches, by July. We know this to be a fact for oldtimers say there never were any fish at all in that lake be- fore." Hixon had opinions about the Hamma Hamma river, too, which he incorporated into his report with the comment, “I agree with the complaint of some that fish- ing in the Hamma Hamma is not what it should be. This stream is very fast and cold and does not have very many resting pools or side feeder streams where the fish may rest and grow. I be- lieve that the Hamma Hamma should be given a short season, COMMUNITY CALENDAR say June, July and August, to give the fish two more'months to put on size in the early summer.” Hixon‘s report also noted the fact that 1,258,224 fish were planted in Mason County waters from January 1 to September 15, about half being rainbows, some of legal size, and more are still to come this year. ——_._—_,.l_ LOGGER CUTS HEAD William Taylor, Camp 3 logger, was treated at Shelton Hospital Wednesday for head cuts suffer- ed in a woods accident.

HOSPITAL OPEN l HOUSE’ SUNDAY T0 l SNOW NEw UNIT Public Invited To Inspect Recent- ly Completed Quarters From 2 To 4 O’clock ‘Open house’ will be held at Shelton‘ Hospital between the hours of two and four o’clock next Sunday afternoon to intro- duce to the public the newly com- pleted unit on the ground floor of the last addition to the main building. Nurses will conduct those in- terested in making trips of in- spection through the new unit, Miss Zella Deeny, hospital su- perintendent, announced today. SIX NEW NURSES 0N HOSPITAL STAFF Among six new additions to the staff of nurses at Shelton General Hospital are four graduates of Irene S. Reed high school, Miss Zella Deeny, hospital superintend- ent, announced today. Miss Ardis Dahlman, graduate of Tacoma General Hospital; Miss, Margaret Clark, graduate of A1132] cortes General Hospital; and MISS. Loretta Loitz, graduate of St.| Peters Hospital of Olympia, are all recent graduates of Irene S. Reed high school, and asked for their first positions as graduate nurses in their home town. In addition, Miss Betty Wells, graduate of Virginia Mason Hos- pital in Seattle, is now a per- manent member of the Shelton Hospital staff. She came here only temporarily to attend her mother, Mrs. Clyde Wells, during her recovery from an automobile accident, but liked it so well ask- ed for and was given a perman- ent place on the staff. She had been taking a supervisory train- ing course at Harborview HosPi- tal in Seattle. Other new members of the staff include Miss Edwina Hen- ry, from Anacortes General_I-Ios- pital, and Miss Dorothea Dickei- ser, of St. Peters. Miss Dick- eiser is here temporarily while present members of the hospital staff recover from illnesses. The new additions to the staff come as replacements for Miss Antonette Baima, who has en- rolled in the supervisory training course at Harborview, Miss Mar- lgaret Culwell, who has taken a position in Columbia Hospital in Seattle, and Miss Ann Harmon, who has gone into Uncle Sam's service as a nurse at Letterman Hospital in the’Presidio at San Francisco, a navy hospital. At the'present time, too, the Shelton staff has been 'handicap- ped by illnesses which have kept Mrs. Rosie Post and Miss Helen McGee from active duty. Mothers’ Club Wants To Uniform Troop 25 Aiming to equip every member of the troop with uniforms, the Mothers’ Club of Troop 25 is staging a drive to secure whole or parts of uniforms from anyone having them and willing to part with them. Anyone wishing to give or sell whole or .parts of regulation Boy Scout uniforms are asked to con- tact Mrs. H. G. Angle or Scout- master Earl Sheldon. YOUTH IN HOSPITAL Harold Kidd, 11-year-old son of Mr. and Mrs. Rex Kidd of Mat- lock Route, was admitted to Shel- dent that way. Grim’s car wound I Armistice Day gridiron battle next saw he could not avoid the acci- up in the ditch on the left side of the road but the right front fell- der struck the pedestrian. Mason died less than two hours after be-i ing admitted to the hospital. He is survived by his wife, Mar- I tha; three sons, Charles of Shel-‘ ton, Raymond of Centralia, and Albert of Los Angeles; one broth- er, Richard ofr Detroit, Michigan; and six grandchildren. He was» born in England, July 6, 1865. He had lived in Mason County for 34 years. No funeral arrangements have. en announced. ‘ be MRS. CLARENCE SAEGER INJURED IN ACCIDENT Mrs. Clarence Saeger of Shel- ton suffered a severe scalp wound early this morning when a car driven by Mrs. Ari V. Dundas of: Potlatch Route, in which she was riding, failed to negotiate the curve at the top of the Kamilchel Hill in the heavy fog and rico- cheted from the bank on the right hand side to the left bank. Mrs. Saeger’s head struck the' windshield, State Patrolman Cliffl Aden reported. The injured wo- man was rushed to Shelton Hos- pital by City School Supt. H. E. Loop, a passing motorist. Mrs. Saeger was returning from Olympia with Mrs. Dundas, Mrs. Lorna White and Mrs. Ed Buch- MCRNlNC HERE tality in eleven days early this. Patrolman - O. 1’. M. Representative Cautions Against Depicting Stocks Without Provisions~ For Replacement Retail merchants were advised last night by .A. E. Pierce, field service representative of the , priorities division of the Office of Production Management in Seat- , tle, to secure priorities certificates iwherever possible with all future sales of merchandise, else they ,will sooner or later deplete their stocks and have no way 01‘ re« placing them. The O.P.M. representative ad— dressed a group of Shelton ill- ;dustrial, business and civic lead- ers who were guests of the Active ,lClub last night. i l It wasn’t a pretty picture he , painted for the small businessman. Under questioning by_his audi— 'ence, Mr. Pierce admitted that the system of priorities is choking athe small merchant and small lmanufacturer not engaged in de- :’ tense work, either directly or in- idirectly, in fact that is the very purpose of priorities ~—- to direct materials into defense use channels first and away from igeneral civilian use. Sell With Care , The speaker indicated that mer- lcllants who concentrated their efforts on obtaining priorities cer- tificates with their merchandise Isales would be able to continue to replenish their stocks, but sales of merchandise to customers un- able to furnish priorities certifi- cates would result in the end in completely diminishing store stocks and leave the merchant with no way of replenishing them, particularly in the types of mer- chandise requiring materials used Aheavily in defense manufacturing. Businesses and industries en- joying priority ratings, Mr. Pierce said in answer to questions from. ‘the audience, have no trouble at present securing materials need- ed for maintenance and continued operation of their plants but that a different certificate requiring considerably more red tape and governmental investigation, with approval necessary from Wash- ington, D. C.. is necessary to se- cure materials desired for prop- erty extensions such as expan- sions, new buildings, etc. Automatic 011 Application The maintenance priorities cer- tificate is largely automatic and given upon application to indus~ tries with priority ratings, he said, but the property extension certificates are something else again. » The lumber industr , fOr in- stance, Mr. Pierce 8 id, has a. priority rating sufficient to ob- tain materials for continued op- eration and maintenance of plants. Utilities, transportation firms, and others of like nature fall into the same general group, he added. The extent to which these in- dustries may secure the materials they desire, however, is entirely anan of Shelton shortly after mid- night when the accident occurred. Two other accidents, both of minor nature, were reported to the sheriff’s office yesterday. Ken- neth Dillengberg, 22, of Hoods- port, reported $125 damage was done to a car owned by his broth~_ er, John, driven by Kenneth, when he skidded and ran into a ditch on the Olympic highway n e a rl Hoodsport Monday as Dillengberg swung out to pass another car. Cars driven by Henry G. Robert- son, and Lyle Murphy, both of Shelton, were involved in a minor‘ accident at Fifth and Cota streets Tuesday evening just at dusk. BREMERTON MAN FINED $90 ON TRAFFIC CHARGE Frank Ivans, chief petty officer in the U. S. Navy, stationed at Bremerton, was fined $90 and court costs amounting to over $9 yesterday by Justice M. CgZin- theo on'a charge of appearing ill. a public place in a drunken con- dition. Ivans was arrested at Belfair Saturday night by State Patrol- man Bob Grimstead of Kitsap County. Prosecutor Frank Heus- ton prosecuted the case. Highclimbers Near Top Strength For Bellarmine Clash Barring last minute mishaps, the Shelton Highclimbers should be at peak strength for their Tuesday against Bellarmine high of Tacoma, Coach Walt Hakola reported last night. Halfback Jim Howarth, out since the last Elma game, is again ready to go and Mack Wilson, guard, has also recovered from a shoulder injury which benched him for last week’s Montesano game. . In addition, Warren Woods, two-letterman halfback, reported this week and is being worked in the backfield as a possible troubleshooter to spark Shelton’s passing attack, which has been spotty and generally uncertain all year. The tackle shortage is the only thing worrying the Highclimber coach very much at the moment. His starters are capable endugh but his reserves are thin. The Highclimbers will concen- trate on pass defense in their practices between now and game time as the Lions are almost as pass-crazy as the Montesano club which tried 34 aerial heaves and completed 18 of them against‘ Shelton last Saturday. dependent upon the available sup- ply and the order‘ in which the available materials is released de- pends upon the priority ratings of the firms; for example, if a dozen applicants holding priority ratings sought a certain article of which there were but six available the order of priority rating would determine which six of the dozen applicants ob~ tained the six articles available, Mr. Pierce said. Spread Small Now At the present time, he point- ed out, the spread between A-1 and A-10 priority ratings is not very great, but it will grow wider as available materials decrease and-then the lower rating hold- ers will have greater difficulty obtaining what they Want. ‘ While admitting the ‘ prospect was hardly one 'on which the average merchantand manufac- turer could look with any op- timism, Mr. Pierce suggested that the situation could work in the other direction as the rate of sup- plying defense needs quickened and thus released more material for civilian use instead of less. Roll Call Kickoff Luncheon Slated Wednesday Noon Final details of the 1941 Red Cross roll call drive will be re— vealed next Wednesday noon at an “all-out membership" luncheon for all roll call workers which will be held in the Shelton Hotel with Roll Call Chairman S. B. Anderson in charge. ‘ The meeting will signal the be- ginning of the annual roll call drive. Chair- man Anderson has completed all committee _.__._ appointments, he announced to- day, and report- ed an exceptionally whole-hearted response from all those asked to assist with the 1941 roll call. "There seems undoubtedly to be more interest in Red Cross work this year than ever before,” he commented. The roll call chairman went on to explain that Washington ranks near the top in per capita enroll- ment and that Mason County rates 14th among Washington counties in per capita support of the roll call for last year.
