pie ,RMEN YATES - During the past Weeks Steig and Beula have advertised their waterfront home and on the market with the results that along an interested buyer. Thus Monday along came a van from Morgan Transfer to start the moving for this couple. When made plans to relocate they'd be heading River near Bend, Ore. numerous difficulties caused them to plans. Following the home and waterfront they leased an apartment West in the Ballard ;of Seattle overlooking the Locks. New owners are and Mrs. Larson of Pa. the termination of 'Year's lease they are dering following the sun and enjoying sunny warm for their favorite sports, and bicycling and other r recreation. Past week they traded they had for their in for a 25 foot travel Getting it down the hill to home wasn't too of a problem. However, it turned around and up said same hill was of another color. The arrived bright and early morning in a typical nlist (missed Oregon and Once turned and trailer headed only to find progress to an abrupt halt about from the house. When ground to a fast halt hopped out to the situation and found: Menus for Shelton Elementary Schools and Shelton Senior Hig,h School Nov. 22-26 -O#en grilled Sandwich, macaroni tray, chocolate milk. ~bAy -- Turkey and mashed potatoes, sauce, green beans, pumpkin custard Hot dog on ed bun, mixed orange juice, cookie and milk. bAy & FRIDAY -- Vacation -- No your child'I With Plenamins from 133 Railroad Ave. Phone 426-4642 ea From Islan (1) the pickup had slid slightly off the narrow road and dug the rear wheels in, but good; (2) said trailer was snuggled up against the bank on the stern end and one alder standing by to offer further resistance later in the ordeal. Yours truly offered the services of a tractor to try and dislodge said pickup. After managing to move the pickup a couple of feet or so a tired battery gave up the ghost and that plan went down the drain. An S.O.S. by way of a phone call to Johnnie Budd saved the day (Jumper cables helped ease a sad and disgraced tractor from the scene and out of the way.) Then a dump truck with a hefty load of gravel reckoned with the stubborn pickup and trailer with the aforementioned alder putting in its two cents worth. A short time later the moving van moved in to gobble up the Gabrielsen's assorted household goods. By evening the house was denuded of its various necessities for human existence and the couple "camped' a stone's throw from the Glenn Yates' residence in their trailer home. One of the hardest tasks the Gabrielsens face is the fact that the apartment complex doesn't consider their pet Labrador, Sahnie one of the family as they do, having acquired her at the tender age of four weeks, when they could cuddle her in just one hand. Plans call for her to adjust to a new home with the couple's youngest son, David and his wife, Nancy in southern Oregon• However, they will be able to keep their nineteen year-old pet cat, Cindy, with them. But poor Sahnie had been aware for the past couple of weeks or so that something is brewing in the wind that's not going to be to her liking and she has worn a worried and wary expression every since she first sensed the situation. Steig and Beula have reserved 100 feet of their property, - just in case they discover that Harstine may have been more home than they realized. Kind of like the salesman with his foot in the door, so he won't lose out completely. The Harstine Community Club met at the Hall last Friday evening with a rather small group of members. Following a short business meeting the group enjoyed playing that game where one lines beans up horizontally, ;vertidally, or!diagonally'in groups of five and wins white elephants for their efforts. By the' time this column goes to press the Harstine Women's Club will have had their annual get-to-gether with the Pickering Club at the latter's clubhouse on the mainland. The outcome of this event will be reported in next week's column. The annual event took place yesterday. Get well wishes this week are extended to Chet Streckenbach from all of his Island friends and neighbors. He was taken to the Hospital on Tuesday of last week after having suffered a heart attack. At this writing he was still in the Intensive Care unit of the Mason:General Hospital. Visitors were being limited to mostly family. Hurry up and get Out of that hospital, Chet, cause I don't have anyone to fight with when you aren't around. The Chuck Bridges home was the scene of an exuberant slumber party last Friday evening when four giggling little girls were the special guests of Johanna Bridges to help her celebrate her ninth birthday. The guests included Kathy Goldsby, Della Stoddard, Sherryl Chapman and Lisa Yates. Recently Gret Simmons took a jaunt down to Garden City to spend a day or so with her close friend Iva Stewart. Upon her return home she was viciously attacked by the old flu bug that seems to be lurking 'round about this vicinity lately. Other drop-in visitors at the Simmons residence recently included Mrs. Inez Peterson and her daughter, Lucille of Tacoma. The Petersons for many years resided just to the south of the ferry landing on the mainland. When they lived there John always had the whole place spit and polished as if he were ready for an army inspection - never even a blade of grass leaning thhe wrong direction. It seems so sad to drive by now and see it in such sad condition. Mike Glaser, this past weekend invited John Neff out to the Island to spend the weekend as his guest. Sunday two of Bud's girl friends dropped in for a short visit with Bud and his brother, Joel This past weekend Mike and Bud Glaser joined several other souples at the home of Bud's youngest daughter, Patti Rychman in Shelton to help Jerry Rychman celebrate his 21st birthday. The young couple along with their baby daughter presently reside on Hillcrest, just down the street from Patti's uncle and aunt, Dick and Bonnie Glaser and their family. However, the young couple are currently having a home built just on the outskirts of Shelton toward Olympia. And speaking of Dick and Bonnie I discovered a couple of very important items that were deleted from the account of their oldest daughter, Brenda's wedding held at the Community Hall the latter part of last month. Mr. and Mrs. Walt Allen, guests at the wedding graciously furnished their organ for the music during the ceremony. It was beautifully played by Janet Gayle of Tacoma who had been blind since her birth 18 years ago. Later during the reception much , to the delight of the guests Janet played many requests. She is also =-arr~teeomplished piano player as well ~ several other instruments. Janet is a real inspiration to the other students at the school she attends. She is a busy senior, taking an active part in many extra-curricular activities. She is at home at the school as she is in her living room at home. For the reception following the ceremony Mrs. Cliff Vanderwal baked and decorated the three tier cake trimmed in the colors of the wedding, traditional white plus pastel green and yellow. Brenda's youngest sister, Terry was in charge of the guest book, while another sister, Sandy was posted at the punch bowl. Patti Rychman took good care of the gift table, and Grandma Glaser poured coffee. George Fullerton a close lriend of the family not only ably ~erved as a very good bartender, but made such an impression on the female guests when he performed such a tremendous job of cleaning up the kitchen and dining room that any number of the gals would have gladly hired him as an all around housekeeper. For awhile it was thought that there might be one left over guest. Cliff Vander Wal hopped up on one of the theater seats that edge three walls of the hall to snap a picture. Then he ran to the other side to snap another picture from another angle, but here was where he ran into a bit of a sticky problem. The seat folded up and his foot slipped through! No amount of twisting or turning would dislodge it. The first 'tool' brought to his rescue('?) was a camera! The other guests started looking around for screwdrivers and pliers, etc. Finally someone (friendly husband) suggested taking off the victim's shoe. That did the trick! Across the water this news comes from our old friends, Bert and Grace Campbell that they are looking forward to celebrating their first anniversary as owner-managers of the Gibler's Cove Inn on Spencer Lake. That event will be this coming Saturday night, Nov. 20. They are offering free snacks, door prizes and best of all :,c country western music. On hand to give them a helping hand is their new employee, Barbara Dye from the Grove on the Canal. It sounds like a real fun evening for their many, many friends. Due to Bert's recent illness and the sadness of My Brassfield's death, Grace said she has neglected to publicly thank Dale Peugh for his very attractive cut-out letters they have now put up identifying their new location for their groceries; the tavern and the cafe along with the new live music they will be featuring from now on and their barber shop which will be opening soon. She hopes everyone will take special notice of 'Dale's letters'! The Campbells feel that although they no longer reside on the Island, the friendliness of the Island Community still flows back and forth across the bridge.

It moves around. Fast-action natural gas is the world's finest fuel for heating. No so-called "generating" time is needed. The time re- quired by electricity, for example, to reach a desired heating temperature-and the equally long time re- quired for cooling down-costs you money. Not so with gas. Nature has been kind to natural gas, sup- plying it with a special push that sends the intense blue flame where it's needed in a matter of seconds. Yet gas possesses a controllable factor that reverses the process just as quickly. These are advantages you can't buy in other forms of energy. Complete, split-second control. This type of behavior in the fuel you use not only saves you money, it creates the most comfortable, even-flowing, healthful warmth available. We'll guarantee you more qual- ity heat, dollar for dollar, with natural gas. Distributors of Naturalg, asatlsfaction Thursday, November 18, 1971- Shelton-Mason County Journal- Page 17
