Our grade I school's Halloween program and I costume Fatty held here last Thursday evening will, undoubted- lY, be remembered by the near- record crowd of amused gmsts, 'SNOW USE Putting Off Winter PROTECTION Don't wait until the little wom- an gets you UP at midnight to close out those cold Widter drafts.

The class- rooms were decorated with the traditional golden pumpkins, scary masks and Colorful autumn leaves, which offered the perfect back- grmmd for the bright array of zany costumed characters who competed for prizes. Mystery "celebrity" judging the outfits turned out to be talented Shelton High senior drama stu- dent Jim Doerty whose claim to radio t'fame" stems from his job as news commentator and an- nouncer for station ,KMAS in Shelton. Jim was assisted in the difficult decision of awarding pri- zes by Mrs. Ruth Wells and re- sults were as follows: Bucky Query as a golden-tressed "curie" nd Jody Engen, attired as a mys- terious oriental "miss', both from the "upper room".; Calvin Peters, disguised as a cunning roly-poly witch, and Becky Query, a sweet old-fashioned blossom, from Mrs. Olsen's "little room" and, in the pre-school category, Christopher Nicklaus, strutting his shifT as scarlet "cock o' the walk" and Kristl Somers who came as a lit- tle old lady of the 19th Century. Each room presented an enter- taining playlet plus several musi- cal renditibns, most  notable of which was "My]Darling Clemen- Line" with' several Verses clever- ty reasranged to honor the child- 'ren's"favorite 'co0k", Mrs. Hill- inan which was received by this surprised lady with obvious de- light. Donuts, delicious candied ap- ples, ptmch and coffee were served after the pr0grani by the Grape- vw MotheYs' C!ub committee, Mesdames Jubie Hicks Art Nick- laus and Lea Freeman. Very wel done! We all had a wonderful time!

Richard Okonek came ou from Tacoma Friday to stay with his family, the Ed Okoneks. while hunting, and managed to bag a spike on Sunday, not too far from home. Jubie Hicks went out on Sunday morning with Virginia and brought dow a two and a half pointer near the Bob Battles' home. What's [ "'2 pointer"? That's a deer with three points on one side and 2 on the other! Art Zehe bagged his spike Sun- day in the Mason Lake area and Clare Peters downed one closer to home ast Thursday morning. Swede Johnson. hunting with John Stevens and Web Etherton. brought home a doe last Saturday. Well, that's all we've heard about for now but it speaks pretty well for the marksmanship of our local woodsmen ! P.S.---We neglected to mention in our column last week that Don Anderson's hunting partner, Ed Lizakowski of Shelton was fortun- ate enough to down a beautiful four-point buck near Allyn on Sat- re'day, th only one reported around here this season. With elk season Just around the cornet. (Saturday) and a spe- cial buck season coming up (Nov. 23, 24 and 25. we'll no doubt have more hunting news soon. 1962 Irene S. Reed graduate Doug Lutz, after a summer spent in humid New Orleans, La., is currently as of last Thursday) employed by the Washington State Conservation Department as one of the two young Washington high school boys cffered the opportun- ity. Doug is working with meteor- ologists ,tudying and measuring rainfall in the North Skagit area, experimenting with cloud-seeding techniques. In other words, they're learning to be "heap-big-rainmak- ers"! He is living in nearby New Haleru. Meanwhile, back at the home- stead, Doug's family, Mr. and Mrs, Fred Lutz with Larry and Laurie. drove to Mossy Rock in southern Washington to spend the weekend with cousins, the Earl Andersons, returning on Sunday. WITH ANOTHER SEASON of grape picking and juice making just about wound up, Mr. and Mrs, Orville Kager drove to Portland, Ore., on Monday. Accompanying them with plans to do a little early holiday shopping was neigh- bor. Mrs. Ed Okonek. The Charles Schwinns were hap- py to play hosts on Sunday to son and family, Fred and Gayleen and six youngsters, including nine- month-old twins. The young Schwinns drove out from Brem- erton, where they have been living since August. Julie and Doris Stock had re- covered sufficiently [after a week- long bout with the flu) on Sunday to drive to Tacoma for a visit with good friend, Mrs. Neff McGirk and son Denny and a reunion with Neff's daughter, Miss Donna Jean Moore, who had recently returned from East Pakistan. An open house was held for close friends of onna s to gtve them an op- portunity to renew acquaintances and to catch up on news. This adventurous miss has spent the past two years on foreign soil with the U.S. Embassy in its Per- sonnel department. After one more week at home, Donna will leave for Peru as head Personnel Di- rector. Sounds like a "dream come true", doesn't it? A pleasanL respite from the tedium of country lfving for the Don Query family of Stretch Is- land came last Sunday with a visit from friends Duane and Jean Smith of Salt Lake City, Utah, The two couples enjoyed visiting and fishing until Thursday when the SmiThs left for home again. "Frustration" ls the word for it. At least, that would be a nat- ural emotion on finding your name in newsprint, involving you in a lawsuit. 'Chat was the unhappy ex- perience of Mr. and Mrs. Richard Johnson of Allyn last week when they read in the Journal of a suit of "Betty Martin against Mr. and Mrs. Richard Johnson for payment due on a real estate contract". The Johnsons have written us the following: "The party being sued is another Mr. nnd Mrs. Richard Johnson not us. %Vould you please have this item printed in your column." The Johnsons are the parents of the former Art John- son well known to many Grape- viewites. We are happy to help clarify this unhappy coincidence. WE HAVE A I{EPORT from our fire conlHlissioiers that a new fire truck has been ordered which should be in our possession next May 25. ready for use during the 1964 fire season. The new fire truck and the equipment that will come with it should enable Fire Protection District No. 3 to meet the requirements for a Class 8 fire district. When the district is rated class 8 the residents with- in two miles of the fire hall will receive a substantial reduction in fire insm'ance rates which, over aperiod )f a few yea], will be enough to pay for the new equip- ment. Good news for us, to be sure! After a lengthy stint of nurs- ing duty at Peninsula General Hospital in Burlingame, Calif., Miss Patsy Pahns returned home last week. spending Tuesday night in Grapeview with her mother, Mrs. Florence Palms. before leav- ing for tacoma and the exciting task of househunting.
