/n h ;chool News By RONA HARPER For the past two weeks there have been no pep assemblies but all that will change this week. A pep assembly is scheduled for Friday for the last football game of the season. It will be played at our school against Ocosta. The Debate teams from our school both lost when they went to Vashon. The other schools participating in the meet were Central and South Kitsap. The debaters who went were Bruce - Becker, Jan Mathiason, Jim Swanson, Lee Russell, and Nancy White. Lee and Jim had won one of the debates the week before when the meet was at our school. The picture packets for the people who had their pictures taken in color are still in the office. Please, rush to the office and purchase yours so that this little matter can be cleared up. Speaking of pictures, the representative from the studio in Shelton where most of the Seniors had their pictures taken came to the school to take the orders. The finished pictures should be back in about three weeks. Those students who wish to be in the Drama Club and did not sign up before this time still have a chance to join. They will be screened by the Executive Board and the sponsor but membership is still attainable. The Drama Club is going to go see "Macbeth" in December. It is going to be put on by the University of Washington School of Drama at the Glenn Hughes Playhouse. They will also be going to see "Getting Married" Menu For North Mason Schools Nov. 15-19 MONDAY --Sloppy Joes, cole slaw, mixed fruit dessert and milk.

CONTEMPORARY STEREO CONSOLE DELUXE SELF CLEANING OVEN RANGE The hometown bank. by George Bernard Shaw sometime in January. The Drama Club will .be in charge of the tickets and programs at the plays this year instead of the Honor Society as it has been in years past. The Sophomores have been busy selling candy to raise money for their class. The class pin choices are up in the library showcase for all the students who will be graduated in 1974 to see. One of the styles will be chosen at a class meeting, so all you Sophomores be sure and see them while they are still on display. Every year the school sends out Employment Survey Forms. This year is no different. Get your Form signed and back to the school so that it doesn't become too much of a nuisance. The Honor Society is in charge of running the ASB Bookstore which is open during lunch time and before school starts. Before it has been open every day but from now on it will only be open on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday. The Bookstore sells the books which are required reading in the English classes and other books just for enjoyable reading. Another of the services that the Honor Society performs for the school is to sell and take tickets at the games. So when you go to the football and basketball games (also the wrestling matches) smile at the hard-working Honor Society members. Last week the GAA had a meeting to discuss the upcoming Tolo. It will be on December 18 and the dress will be casual. The over-all chairman is Joni Slagle. The committee chairmen are: Entertainment - Vicki Johnson. Decorations - Maria Schaeffer. Refreshments - Lynn McFeely. Theme - Kim Williams Clean-up - Diana Jorgensen. Tickets & programs - Rona Harper. The sports that the GAA will be participating in for the year are Volleyball, Basketball, Gymnastics, Bowling, and Badminton. Don't forget the Sr. Play. It will be November 19 & 20 in the High School Gym. Everything is going fine and it should prove to be a very enjoyable experience. November 11 is the end of the first quarter. Just think 45 days of school have already gone by. CLASSICS: something that everybody wants to have read and nobody wants to read. Mark Twain Jim Pruitt of By LENNIA CATES -- CR 5-2245 Well the last week-end of the deer season, where in our particular area it was open the last two days for both sexes, turned out quite profitable. Terry Sills got his - both Mike and Ken Aries lucked out also. Harold and Jay Allen hit the mark again this year, and Tom Marsh managed to sweeten their larder. Frank Madden, after many days of unsuccessful scouting for one of his own this year, helped gut out three the last 2 days for hunters who had downed theirs but didn't know how to dress them out ! ! The better-half has a tag for sale real cheat, as he ended up a loser. He also ended up a loser for his re-election as Fire Commissioner, by 5 votes! Jesse wants to thank all those who did vote for him, and for those who have since called or come in to say they thought he was running unopposed, or was a cinch to win and didn't bother to vote - thank you, anyway. The John lrelands of Shorebrook pulled their trailer home to Olympia last week-end for the winter. They have a busy schedule ahead, what with the holidays coming and their only child, daughter Judy, will be "Middle aisling" it in January. Our sincere sympathy to June Toombs and family on the death of her son Donald in a home fire in Bremerton recently. The first of several "work parties" was held at the Stacies' "shack on the hill" on November 1st, and turned out to be both a fun and constructive day. A forerunner to the "silent auction" to be held at the Tahuya Fire Hall on Saturday evening, November 20th, a delightful array of items are accumulating that should be gobbled up fast when the time comes. Jane served a lovely salad, dessert and coffee to go along with the "bring your own sandwich" luncheon. They call that a "little shack on the hill"??? The Howard Rannigers of North Shore Nursery are ensconsed in their new home. New to them, they are temporarily renting the Gardiner place on the North Shore after having recently sold their own home here in Tahuya. Their plans are, in time, to put a mobile home on the rear portion of their property at the nursery - what a heavenly spot!! You can tell Christmas is nearly upon us - the annual tree-laden trucks are starting to appear, and it might be wise to keep this in mind when traveling the more narrow and curvy spots of the North Shore road. Don't forget, Tahuya area residents, the "Harvest Bazaar" to be held this Saturday, November Ifair to marry Florida bride A winter wedding is being planned for Miss Jeanne Marie Schumacher and James D. Pruitt. Miss Schumacher is the daughter of Mr. and Mrs. F. H. Schumacher of Fort Meyers, Florida. Mr. Pruitt is the son of Mrs. F. A. Pruitt of Belfair and the late Fred Pruitt. A graduate of Fort Myers High School, Miss Schumacher attended Edison Junior College and is presently employed by U-Save Supermarkets. Mr. Pruitt was graduated from North Mason High School and attended Olympic Community College in Bremerton. He is assistant manager of the U-Save supermarket, Fort Myers, Florida. The wedding will take place Jan. 8.

Would liked to have been in Pueblo, Colorado on November 4th when it opened its new Symphony Orchestra 1971-1972 season. My only nephew, Michael Beck, young pianist and a winner of the Symphony Association's Mozart Festival Piano Competition 1971, was guest artist at the Gala opening concert. Mike played Piano Concerto No. 1 by Prokofieff, under the direction of Resident Conductor Gerhard Track. Mike's former teacher, Dr. Rodney Ash, well-known throughout the United States and Chairman of the Department of Music at Western State College was able to attend the performance and the festivities which followed at the Minnequa University Club. And to think, not too long ago, that same Mike thought fishing for pogies and perch in Hood Canal was the highlight of his life!! Our new 1972 calendars have arrived and they are quite Funeral services for Donald D. Toombs, 35, recently of Belfair, who died in a home fire in Bremerton on November 2, were held last Friday at Lewis Chapel in Bremerton, with the Rev. Wendall L. Harder officiating. He was born July 8, 1936, in Harlowton, Mont., to Mr. and Mrs. Harold L. Toombs. He was reared and educated in Washington and California. He served three and a half years with the Army as an MP in Korea; and three years in Germany with the Army Engineers. He returned to the Belfair area in 1960.

Following her speech, several members of the audience purchased autographed copies of the newly revised edition of "The Untamed Olympics", first published in 1954, and of her latest work, "Treasure Hunting Northwest," just off the press. Miss Hult, who first came to Seattle from Idaho in 1945, still remembers her first glimpse of the Olympics across Puget Sound from the state's largest city. She eventually found a job in an office whose windows faced the Olympics, she moved into an apartment in West Westtle which had a view of the mountains and she could see them each day (weather permitting, of course) on her way to work. She admits she fell in love with them and when she went to the library to get books about them but found there were none, she decided she'd write one herself. The fact that she had only viewed them from afar, that she had never even set foot on the Peninsula, did not deter her. At this time she had one published book to her credit, "Steamboats in the Timber", which was about her native Idaho. It was five years before she finished "The Untamed Olympics" and by the time she had it written she was an authority on the Olympic Peninsula area. Besides hours spent in research in libraries, she spent many hours interviewing people who could give her information about her subject. It was 1949 when she first visited the Olympic Peninsula in person as a guest of Herb and Lois Crisler in their home in the Olympic National Forest. Crisler had started out taking pictures within the National Forest for reproduction on post cards but eventually had progressed to taking movies of the wildlife which caught the attention of Walt Disney and he went on to work for him. The Crislers took Miss Hult around to various scenic places on the Peninsula, from Hurricane Ridge to Port Angeles to Lake Crescent etc. In order to be closer to her subject, the authoress quit her high-paying job in Seattle and moved to Port Angeles where she was able to work part-time as proof reader for the Port Angeles Evening News, under the watchful eye of Charles Webster, editor. He was a fountain of knowledge about the Peninsula and shared what he knew with Miss Hult. She spent time in various places on the Peninsula, Forks, LaPush, Neah Bay, the Hood Canal area and Shelton in search of more information. She said she had lots of fun gathering the information for the book and met many interesting people. She gave a little of the history of the exploration of the Olympics, which is included in her book. She said the perimeter of the Olympic Peninsula was well-known for forty years before anyone ventured into the interior. Rumors of hidden valleys and much mystery surrounded the Olympics until the initial exploration party, the Press Party, ventured into the interior and found only mountains behind other mountains. She also told a lithe of the history of the second party to explore the mountains, the O'Neil party, which sent small groups along different river routes and came back with some primitive maps of the mountain area. She said it had been O'Neil's opinion, when he returned from the exploration trip, that the area should be preserved as a national park, a recommendation which eventually came to pass. The last chapter in "The Untamed Olympics", the authoress noted, had remained entitled "Bridge to the Future" but had been updated in the revised edition. At the time the original book had been written the big topic of conversation in the area was a possible bridge across Puget Sound which would have made many changes in the area. In the new edition her "Bridge to the Future" chapter posed the question of how the Olympic Peninsula can maintain its charming wooded roads, its beaches filled with shellfish, its clean waters and air in the face of the increasing demand for more developments so that more and more people might move into the area. She said she did not have the answer but that she hoped the many environmentalist groups working on the problem would soon find the solution before the natural loveliness of the area is destroyed. WE CAN say nothing with certainty about anything, because the picture presented to us is not constant.
