By JUL! PRESTON -- CR 5-6288 ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~l~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~u~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Mrs. Wanda Nilson recently traveled to Anahiem, California with Mrs. Gloria Wharton and her eight-year old daughter, Marilisa from Carlsborg, Washington for a National Convention of the National Association of Postmasters. The trip was a surprise for Marilisa as she was under the impression that just her mother was going and that her father was going to meet her at the airport. Somehow the ladies got her on the plane for good-byes and then they asked her if she'd like to go along[ It was a fun trip for everyone. Besides attending the convention meetings and banquets, the group of some 4,500 people from all over the United States, Hawaii, Alaska and Puerto Rico took in many sight-seeing touks. Disneyland opened up one night especially for the group. Our ladies visited Disneyland again and also visited the Knott's Berry Farms, Marineland, took the Lion Safari, toured the Wax Museum of Living Arts and the Wax Museum of the Stars. As the President-elect of the Washington Chapter of Postmaster, Mrs. Nilson has a great many duties. She just returned from the Western Regional Office of U. S. Postal Service in San Francisco where she attended meetings on the training of new postmasters and the development of present postmasters. Added to her duties, Mrs. Nilson also trains new postmasters at the Union Post Office. Erma Roessei and Mary Wing have their art work on display at the Belfair Post Office. Some of this work was done at the Oregon State University Art Seminar which they attended this past summer and is an example of sand art. Mrs. Ralph Lackey flew to Los Angeles, California last week, for a four day visit with her son, David Lackey. He'd sent her a round trip ticket as a birthday present and her arrival was in time for the grand opening of his flower and gift shop in L.A. Mrs. Lackey said that it was interesting to browse through the shop because she saw something different every time. Though Mrs. Lackey was away on Halloween, her family reported that they had had eighty-five Trick-or-Treaters visit their Lakeland Village home. That's a lot of treating! Mike Hagan recently received "Greeting from Uncle Sam" with wishes for a good time in Seattle where he underwent a battery of tests for his physical. After taking up three days of Mike's time for the tests the Army decided to take another thirty days before letting him in on their plans for him. Until then, Mike is attending college in Yakima.

All of the money was given to the Children's Orthopedic Hospital in Seattle. Plans for the silver wedding anniversary of Butch and Pappy Holm have had to be postponed, we're sorry to report. Pappy was admitted to Harrison Hospital in Bremerton last Friday and will be there for a little while. All of his friends wish him a speedy recovery.

The wind chimes were made out of painted can lids at some of their meetings. When Barbara Knight, the second year Brownie leader, was sick and called off her Brownie meeting, the first year Brownies thought it included them and only two girls showed up for their meeting. The two girls, Lori McGill and Valerie Chilton were elected to have their pictures taken with the Brownie Sit-upons. While they waited for Lori's mother to come, they made baking soda clay beads. The second year Brownies had made bean bags. They also had a Halloween party for the first year Brownies. They played bean bag toss, pin the tail on the donkey, and a game where you tie a balloon around your ankle and try not to get your balloon popped.

She makes the writing of cute little poems seem as easy as Sonja Henie used to make ice-skating look. In the case of the latter, the ease of gliding over the ice in graceful motion was deceptive. After each Sonja Henie movie I would go down to the local ice-skating rink, rent a pair of skates and try again, only to find myself crossing the ice (when I could remain upright, that is) on my ankles instead of the blades of the skates. Is Jan's knack of writing poems to introduce and end her clever column a special talent or is it something just anyone can do, I wondered. I'll never know till I try, 1 decided, as I drove up to the new location of the Sheriff's office to sharpen four pencils, stopped off at the store to buy a notebook and returned to the office full of enthusiasm for the project. A few hours later, after another trip to the pencil sharpener to resharpen the pencils and the purchase of a second notebook to replace the one whose individual sheets were all wadded up in the wastebasket, I finally achieved my goal. I had written a poem. It wasn't quite as easy as Jan's little lyrics make it seem, but it was something anyone can do, after all. I'd like to dedicate my poem to the friend who gave me a slab of smoked salmon from a backyard smokehouse made out of an old refrigerator: The fish was delish. Next summer during my vacation, if 1 find myself with three or four days with nothing else to do, I may try my hand at poetry writing again. Who knows, I might even be able to come up with a four-liner! OU mp 1 This week marks the fifth year that residents of Mission Creek Youth Forest Camp have cut, baled and stacked Christmas trees to be shipped to Viet Nam. This project started in 1967 when Governor Evans received a letter from Airman 2nd Class rees Ronald L. Key, Mount Vernon, stationed in Da Nang, Viet Nam. The airman's letter read in part: "l need some help to make Christmas at Da Nang really something to remember.., with December only a few months away I was wondering if you BOYS FROM MISSION Creek Youth Camp were busy this week trimming and baling the 1,000 Christmas trees they readied for shipment to servicemen in Viet Nam, a gift from Washington State.

Governor Evans complied with the request, but increased it to 1,000 trees. Crews from Mission Creek Youth (?amp in North Mason County have gathered these trees from state-owned land surrounding the camp. On November 12, the National Guard will pick up the trees and deliver them to Pier 91 where they will be containarized and loaded on one of Sea Land Shipping Company's ships. The scheduled departure for Viet Nam is November 14. Once again the Tacoma Chamber of Commerce has paid the Department of Natural Resources $250 for the trees. Mission Creek Youth Camp is a dual-operated state institution for court-committed juvenile boys. These boys, ages 15 to 18, spend their days working in the 23,000 acres surrounding the camp for the Department of Natural Resources. The camp is one of five under the Department of Social and Health Services, Division of Institutions.

Title search for Allyn pier property still unfinished The title search to find ou,. who owns the land on which the Allyn Port district-owned pier in Allyn is built is still going on, i! was learned at last week's regular meeting of the AUyn Port district commissioners. It was noted that the lease with Keypoint Oyster Co. for use of the pier facilities has expired but that the attorney for the port district has advised the commissioners not to renew it until ownership of the property is determined. An insurance policy, with Cady Insurance Agenc$', covering a building on the Allyn pier which commissioners said had not been there for years, was cancelled by unanimous vote of the Board. It was announced that a visit by the County Engineer had been made to the site of the North Shore launching ramp and he had advised changing the grade and slope a little and moving the approach into the property. In answering a ~uestion from the floor, it was noted that no catch basin is planned for the site in specifications for the asphalt paving job; that water will drain down the middle of the property by having the sides slope toward the middle. It was voted by the Board to withhold issuing a contract for the paving work for one month. Larry Osborne of Ruskin Fisher Assoc. of Seattle reported that he had checked with the Port Townsend firm which had been awarded the remodeling job on the North Shore pier and that they had ordered all materials needed for the job within three days of notification to proceed from the Port Board so were well within the ten-day period called for m the contract. Commissioner Roy Mitchell reported that a man from the County Health department had finally visited the North Shore house owned by the Port District to conduct a dye test to check the sewage system but that the PUD had turned off the electricity when the renters had moved out so the water pump was not running and no test was made.
