ANGLE Editor THE BEST NEWS IN MONTHS Perhaps the best news for Shelton in some; Amonths, and for various good reasons, is that the: Qway has been,cleared and soon will be in progress; one of the new Safeway Stores of the class being} built in many places with adjoining parking; space, which when completed will help to relieve; the car and shopper congestion at the present, store location at Second and Cota Streets. Almost as important will be the removal of, an old eyesore which stands at the corner of two main streets and the approach to the rather eX-, tensive parking project carried out this summer; for four blocks along Railroad avenue, which has! already received much favorable comment fromi those who drive along the highway and catch a glimpse of the improvement which has been made, And it is worth noting that this marks the completion of plans in mind and the hopes of; years in creating a pleasing city center withi lawns, shrubs and flowers, and including the new‘ Postoffice block, City Hall, Legion and Masonic, buildings, and the more recent improvement of the Company Garage, L. M. Furniture Depart- ment, Warehouse, and the hiding of the railroad! shops and tracks behind an ornamental wire} fence. Once the civic minded had thought it hope-l less to expect the improvement. of the railroadf and property along Shelton’s main street, but a? short year has proved what a concerted effortl will do toward beautifying a city. ‘ Perhaps best of all is the expression of con-- fidence by a large'mercantile concern spread over; the West in the future growth and prospects for} Shelton’s permanency, and their large investment‘ should inspire an equal confidence in the com-i munity itself and the newcomers who are a‘ttract-‘ fed here by the industries and encouraged to build; :‘homes for themselves. Incidentally, the class of; the newer homes being built in Shelton indicates the wisdom of such investment for the future. I AN EVIL GENII UNCOBKED President Roosevelt is now facing the genii he uncorked earlier in the game in the person of; a greatly magnified President Lewis, who is nowi asserting his claim to dictate to the nation’s 130,—? 000.000, souls, as well as his own special group,l ,and determine their fate ‘, While this present issue is trifling, merely; over five per cent of the men dn “captive” coal, mines who have refused to pay dues tribute to‘ Lewis, there are many other big issues to be set-l tled, notably the welders, the airplane and shipi workers and the railroad men. But it will be noted that all the recent strikes have been in key spots plainly intended to hold, mind was bent on crippling the United States in' its efforts to get behind the men who have been forced ,into service. l Congressnow threatens, if President Roos’e-I velt gives the word, to pass legislation intended to delay or prevent strikes in defense industry, but probably nothing much will be done until the nation arises in its wrath and in plain English tells the President, Congress and the big labor leaders to stop foolishness all along the line, if: it is not too late. , It goes without saying that the great massl of American labor is patriotic to the core, and' could not well be otherwise since it is largely} their sons who are. in the ranks and may in due time be on the firing line; but their leaders seem \ to be drunk with power over millions of men and! money and have set themselves even above the President. The average worker is well satisfied and only asks to be let alone and permitted to-geti in full time on his job. ' , l WHAT’S BECOME 0F ALUMINUM JUNK? The 0PM is preparing for a nation wide cam-I paign against waste and after the success in gathering up old aluminum by the public, is talk-; ing of similar campaigns for scrap metal, Isuchl as has not already gone to Japan; waste paper and! any old junk around the home, and soon the land, may resound in the 'old-time cry of “any old rags,l sacks or bottles.” . Come to think of it there have been no re-e turns from the aluminum campaign and it is said that much of this is still hanging around old ware- houses, but that none of it will ever see new life; in an airplane, as was promised when the people; got behind the campaign and encouraged thei'rl boys to gather it up. It is all very well. to make fun of “,Herrg Schickleburger” but we must hand it to Hitler for getting things done, starting from. scratch after World War and building the greatest war and! fighting machine on earth, and no fooling. ing statement released yesterday by Treasurer Reg Sykes indicates. of $7,175.49.

Hatchery Grange Treats Soldiers To Turkey Dinner Twelve Fort Lewis soldiers who made many friends in the Clo- quallum district during the Army maneuvers , of August-September were guests of honor when Hatch- eryGrange held a Thanksgiving dinner last week.

He made tackles on both sides of the field, whether' the play came his way or went to the other side, he blocked vigorously and until the last couple of minutes of the game climbers completed, most of them pretty difficult catches. There would hardly be an ob— jector even among Olympia fol-~ lowers to label the rangy Shelton end as the outstanding player of the game, despite the obvious fact that the Bears must have had some stars to run up a five-touch- down verdict. From‘ the first minute of play there was little question of the outcome. After kicking off to time they laycd hands on the ball, returning Sheltonls punt for a 65— yard touchdown via a lateral from Ted Leidy to Tim Randall. The Highclimbers held until the second play of the second quarter before yielding another Bear tally, but Randall culminated a 50-yard drive which started with a pass four yards. Passes from Leid‘y to Jack VanEaton played an impor- tant role in the advance. The Bears scored again in the scoring after passes and laterals had put the Bears in position af- 'ter a 60—yard march. Two touch- downs in the last period turned the game into a rout, Randall throwing a pass to Darrel Sand- ers for one and Ray Bert, center. intercepting a pass and rambling 45 yards for the last one. i The Highclimbers held Olympia well enough on running plays but couldn’t fathom the Bear laterals and passes, which were used ex— tensively. Shelton’s line played good ball defensively but very poor ball offensively. Outside of VanOverbeke, High— climber luminaries were Carrol .Hill and Donn Nelson in the line and Bob Puhn in the backfield. Olympia made tcn first downs, Shelton three. ‘M’m WEE Goes On At pagitsand Mrs. Ted Aselson of , were out to see Mr. and Mrs. Main over the weekend.

Torn loose from its moorings Shafer home on Hood Canal, four miles north of Union, in last Thursday night’s storm, the “ark” traveled about a mile and a half toward Belfair and across to the Tahuya side of the canal from the Shafer home before being stopped either , by its anchors, which are several was -‘ pairs of railroad wheeIs, or by some obstruction in the canal. One of the most popular hob— bies of sailors in the U. S. Navv and Naval Reserve is that of col- lecting “covers” from the battle?- ships that maintain their own Several naval mag- azincs devote regular departments to stamp collections.
