y To By MORLEY KRAMER National Children's Book Week is Nov. 14-20. This year the theme is "Grab Me, Read Me, Love Me" and the Shelton Public Library has a wide selection of books that will make children want to do just that. The library will be featuring a display "Growing Up With Books" showing more than 300 books every child should have a chance to enjoy. Long before he learns to read, the very young child will delight in the rhythm of words, and the illustrations of a picture book. He will ask to have his favorites, such as those on display, read over and over. In the age group, five to seven, children's interests often run ahead of their ability to read - the younger ones must be read to, and the older ones want to change from their first reading texts. Informational books in this group may also interest older children. For ages Snowmobiles being operated within this state must now display registration numbers. This new law became effective August 9, 1971. According to Jack G. Nelson, Director of the Department of Motor Vehicles, applications for registration numbers will be accepted by any county auditor or vehicle license agent. The cost of registration is $15.50 for three years. The registration for 1971 will expire August 31, 1974. It must be renewed September 1st. The money raised by this new program is earmarked for snowmobile trail-related expenses and enforcement. To prevent delays in registering the snowmobile, the operator should bring the license agent evidence of ownership (bill of sale, dealer invoice, etc.). Proof of payment of Washington State Sales Tax is also needed. A number will be assigned and a validating tab and registration certificate issued. It will be the owner's responsibility to display the numbers on both sides of the front cowling. They must be seven to twelve there are favorite stories, fairy tales and fantastic adventures, stories for boys and girls, animal stories and the classics. The teens are a difficult age to define in terms of reading habits,but historical fiction pieces,bewitching adventure, poetry and the arts, current events and modern novels are areas that young people do read. In addition to displays, pamphlets describing the books will be available, and programs for the young child will be sponsored at the library by the Community Library Association during the week. Take advantage of National Children's Book Week to introduce your child to the Shelton Public Library. The library will be open from noon to 5:30 p.m. and 7-9 p.m. Monday through Friday and noon to 5 p.m. Saturday. upon existing conditions.

ABOUT 100 SCHOOL district employees and Chamber of Commerce members attended the coffee hour for school employees held recently by the Chamber. The event was held in the PUD 3 Auditorium. Here, a group of those who attended chat while having refreshments. e ives With only minor and specific exceptions, all meetings - even informal ones - of the multimember governing bodies of public agencies are subject to the state's new Open Public Meetings Act, according to Attorney General Slade Gorton. That was the thrust of a sweeping, 44-page formal legal opinion which Gorton issued this week answering 20 questions about the new law. The opinion is designed to carry out the legislature's intent that the act should be "liberally construed" so that the deliberations and actions of public bodies should be open. Gorton said that the law applies to all boards and commissions which are in fact governing bodies of public agencies. It does not cover pen of a governing body should meet, even informally, in order to consider matters which are within the ambit of the agency's official business, then there will occur a 'meeting at which action is taken' under the ... act. From this it follows that such informal meetings.., are subject to the... act." The attorney general also said that secret ballots would violate the purpose of the act. Executive sessions are prohibited by the law except for matters affecting national security, a proposed real estate transaction when publicity would cause "a likelihood of increased price," and the appointment, employment or dismissal of a public officer or employee, or a disciplinary matter concerning agencies headed by individual n general noted, "cannot be asserted by the body for all legal advice which it receives, particularly that which fits within the concept of deliberations of the body." Labor negotiations are not covered by the act unless they are actually handled by a majority of the governing body, but the board's final ratification of a negotiated agreement would have to be at a public meeting. No "qualification" - such as a sign-in sheet - may be placed upon the public attending a meeting, Gorton said, and any person may begin legal action against a violation of the Open Public Meetings Act. If a governing body does not meet at a regularly scheduled time as adopted by rule or regulation, such an employee, then all of its sessions are special n lews are business and professional licensing proceedings, quasi-judicial proceedings between named parties and not involving the general public or an entire class, and certain proceedings conducted by state agencies under the Administrative Procedures Act. The opinion was prepared in response to questions from several public officials, including State Representative King Lysen, 31st District of King County, to whom it was addressed.
