But the unanimous feeling of the group ended with= JESFIELD CONSTRUCTION the first question on the list, for none of the other questions elicited such complete agreement. The next highest percentage of agreement in response to a question was the 80 per cent NO reply to the suggestion of a Mansard roof for the buildings in Belfair. Only about 40 per cent seemed to think a uniform color for all would be a good idea but, Ewart reported, he got almost as many suggestions for color schemes to be used as persons he interviewed. About half of the merchants thought one kind of sign used by all would be effective and about 70 per cent would agree to some type of display of art for sale in their places of business. It wasn't that others did not like the idea of an art show in every shop, Ewart said, but some shops simply did not have room to display pictures for sale. m - CONTRACTING BUILDING = - CABINET WORK CONCRETE WORK 1 ~.

A SIGN, crediting the 4-H horse clubs who began the Tahuya River Park as well as the CYO Boy Scouts who enlarged it, is read by Jerry Otto of the DNR. By LOUISE EWART- 426-4925 On November 10 and 11 the annual meeting of the Washington Federation of Republicans was held in Ellensburg at the Holiday Inn. Mrs. E. T. Petterson and Peggy Bennet attended and enjoyed the meeting and especially enjoyed the speaker, Art Fletcher, who discussed the United Nations vote on China. Mr. and Mrs. Art Nicklaus and family have moved into their lovely new home on Spencer Lake. The house is a charming blend of old and new and 1 was so happy to see the lovely old oak Spooner's mother was one of his teachers. He has been "at home'" with a back ailment and each weekend Mr. and Mrs. Eacrett have stopped by to see him after a trip to Oak Harbor to see son Bob's football team in action. The new report cards are a great improvement over the old grading system and teachers and parents agree with this. My daughter-in-law is teaching at an experimental-type school where she has six grades in one room and each child works at his own level which makes the traditional Guest speaker for the November meeting of Belfair Chamber of Commerce was Clem Sargent of Sargent Oyster Co. of Allyn who told of some of the problems faced in the oyster industry and some plans for the future. Samples of shells covered with oyster seed or with tiny oysters a few months old were passed around to the almost 30 members of the audience. He told a little of the history of the oysters in this area, .saying that the Olympia oysters are the only native oysters on the west coast, the others were brought over by seed from Japan. He can remember that in 1946 almost all Hood Canal beaches had oyster beds and said that biologists do not know what happened to change things so that now oysters are only in spotty locations. One predator of the oyster was shown, the Japanese drill, and the listeners warned to report to the State lab at Brinnon if drill is Clearing Earth Movimj Road Building GRAVEL--SAND--ROCK FREE ESTIMATES Days CR 5-2837 LOCAL CONTRACTOR Eves.
