Thursday, Nov. 6, 2014 - Mason County Journal - Page A-27 MARY'S MEMOIRS You don't hear "Armistice Day" very often. Sam gets elected to the Road Club and duck hunting is still going strong this week. Mary takes in a couple of movies and a dance. Sam is going to take Mr. Ryan on the train to Minneapolis so he can live with his sister. Busy week. Enjoy ! Thursday, Nov. 5, 1936 We ate our four ducks and, my, were they good. It was Charlie's birthday, Emmet's house. My, how An- nie exclaimed over it. They plan on moving in pretty soon. John and Annie left at 6:45 for Seattle so we drove to town and saw Jack Holt in "End of the Trail." A very good picture. Home very late. By CLYDENE HOSTETLER Monday, Nov. 9, 1936 A cold, sunny day. Sam received a telegram from the doctor at Soap Lake saying Mr. Ryan was no better, so Sam sent Doug to Seattle and went to Soap but we never thought about it until the next day. Friday, Nov. 6, 1936 Very busy. John and Annie and Louise came out. Sam and John went to the Road Club meeting and Sam was elected president. To bed late. Saturday, Nov. 7, 1936 Another busy day. The bull- dozer pulled stumps and dug the ground up all along the lumber shed and toward Ernie Cox's place. We can see way down the highway now. Doro- thy Eddy, Leona Thomas and Camellia Pearsall went to the dance with us. We had a very good time. Laughed so hard on the way home we ached! Sunday, Nov. 8, 1936 Slept until very late. Then ate breakfast and went out in the boat for an hour when the sun was nice and warm. My, we saw so many ducks! Henry and Richie had 10. We left the men home and drove down as far as Union then up to see Lake to bring Mr. Ryan home. We were fairly busy. The bull- dozer worked half a day and tore'up most of the backyard. Received two more new books today and a magazine. How will I ever get them read? Lots of business in the post office today. Lots of mail too. Lionel Housen and Sam Herrick are cutting Christmas trees this year. They did well last year at the same business. Tuesday, Nov. 10, 1936 Another fairly nice day. Not very cold out. Sam and Mr. Ryan came home at 7:15, and I went to the beach, made beds and fixed things for the night. Then back to the store and put some things in a basket for Sam's lunch at the beach. Sam went to get my dad, Charlie Irving, Glenn Harris, Bickle, Bill Tumeyer and Bill Orr to come down for a little visit the last evening. I went to the show with Ruth and Chet Ruff. Saw Kay Fran- cis in "Give Me Your Heart" and Shirley Temple in "Dim- ples." Enjoyed it very much. Home late and to bed. Nearly 1. We ate hamburgers at the Wigwam and, of course, that took some time. Wednesday, Nov. 11, 1936 Armistice Day and a good day. The sun came out and was nice and warm. I got up early and made breakfast for Sam and Mr. Ryan. Then I put away some laundry, etc., until Charlie came back from duck hunting at 9. Mr. Ryan wanted to see his trunk, so Charlie took them up to the old store. Then he went down to the beach and stayed all day with Charlie, who put buttons on his pants and pressed them. Received a Present from Sam's mother, my mother and Mrs. Sund- strom today. Some pretty things. I'm surely lucky. Sam, Charlie and Mr. Ryan went to Seattle, where Sam and Mr. Ryan take the train for Minneapolis, Minnesota. Sam expects to be home Monday night so we can attend a meet- ing in Seattle. Mr. Ryan had tears in his eyes when he left. He really didn't want to go, I guess, when the time came. I felt very sorry for him. Bu he looks pretty good and will feel more at home when he gets back to where his sister lives. Hope he doesn't get too tired on the trip. m My eyes got a little teary when reading about Mr. Ryan, I couldn't help think- ing that Sam was a pretty good friend looking out for Mr. Ryan and traveling with him on the train all the way to Minneapolis just to get right back on and return Photo courtesy of the Mary Theler Collection Sam and Mary Theler pose in this undated photo. home.

Major Court Ruling A recent court decision on the dispute between Mason County and its Teamsters Union bargaining group has far-reaching implications for negotiations between public bodies and unions, says attorney John Buckwalter. Buckwalter has represented Mason County through the succession of legal actions that followed a resolution by the county commissioners in January 1985 to nullify a Teamsters' contract with Mason County for 1985 and 1986.
