It is always good judgment to commence early that are needed for gifts and leave to the last minute rush only that which has been overlooked, and this year it is wisdom to early for family and gift needs because dealers buy and public are warned that many items will be short and that wholesale prices in general are increasing retail prices must follow. and This year has been a good one in Shelton with all its industries humming and in the last half of the year, funds to supply their needs its workers losing no time insuring them with ample of necessity or luxury, and when the trade rush really starts retail stocks on hand must go down fast; all of which promises the biggest holiday trade in Shelton’s history and merchants will make the most of the next 23 days until Christmas to encourage home trading, and let the future take care of itself. SANTA BEACHES SHELTON AT TEN O’CLOCK SATURDAY; XMAS SHOPPING R Santa Claus is coming to town! He arrives Saturday morning at ten o'clock. when he will be officially greeted iiy Mayor Wil- liam Stevenson on the steps of the postoffice, then off he goes to visit Shelton stores and talk to Shelton and Mason County boys and girls. (See schedules above for times and places). ‘ Shelton’s business section will [be all decked out in Christmas I greenery to greet the jolly old man from the North Pole. Crews of workers started‘Tuesday to . hang festoons of forest greens and wreaths of hemlock and fir boughs from the buildings on Ram road and Cota streets and all connecting streets from First to Fourth. They’ll have their task completed by Saturday morn- ing. Biggest Yule Volume Due Santa’s Saturday visit will touch off what Shelton business men anticipate will be the great- est Christmas in 20 years here. Early Christmas buying is al- ready strongly felt in Shelton stores and has brought big crowds of shoppers into town the past couple of weekends. Stocks in practically all lines of gift goods are not only com- plete but are also much larger than in previous years here. Al- though Shelton shoppers are be- ginning their shopping earlier this year than in previous sea- sonS. farSighted Shelton store of- ficials haVe ordered ahead to get their merchandise before possible shortages occur. The defense industry boom. which is being felt here despite the fact that no direct defense industries are actually located here, has put more money into circulation, businessmen feel, thus encouraging shoppers to plan for a more bountiful holiday sea— son.

The plant assures cus- tomers of getting articles they desire while stocks are large and lines complete, they point 'out. Stores handling toys are fea- turing full lines of playtliings, or- ders having been placed sufficient- ly far in advance so conflict with defense work and priorities was avoided in most cases. War-type toys, naturally, are the fad this year, although other types of games and children's articles still come in for plenty of attention. Business is brisk, also, in the old reliable gifts such socks. shirts, belts, garters, sus~ penders, etc., while fine lingerie and women’s apparel are popular gift items among the early shop— pers with stocks of nightwear; stockings. dresses and other fem- inine articles rapidly being re~ duced. Can’t Forget Appetites Of course, the Mason County shopper is remembering to re« plenish the family larder, grocers and meat dispensers report. Many housekeepers are already placing their orders for turkeys. geese, rabbit and other yuletide meat items in order to get that detail out of the way and taken care of early before the last-minute rush of Christmas week.

Nelson, Priorities Director, in the interest of na- tional defense will affect Christ— mas package wrappings isn’t yet certain here, but even if Santa does Have to bring his gifts in their customary glistening garb it will detract but little from the record fireaking volume of Christ- mas shopping which Shelton mer- chants predict is coming in the next three weeks.

Okerstrom said he had been informed, thus indicating the Allyn deposit may be a valuable source of the metal now so important to the construc- tion of airplanes and other nation- al defense industries. Okerstrom said that other de— posits of aluminum clay undoubt‘ edlv exist in Mason County as soil surveys have revealed other soils like that in Allyn hill from which the samples were assayed. Vacancies In Council Yesterday’s monthly session of the Planning Council was in- formal as a. quorum of the 12 members was not present, but informal discussion of the alumi- num clay deposit, the mine-to- morket road needed to tap man- ganese deposits in the Olympics and feed the new manganese ore smelter which is nearing com- pletion on T—Iill Creek, and sug~ gested candidates for appoint- ment to three vacant positions on the Planning Council occupied the four members who gathered for -tho session. The Council members will sug- gest several names to the county commissioners next week so that the vacant seats can be filled and the Planning Council get in- to action. lWater Pipe Now Being Cast For Shelton System Delivery of the last of the ap- proximately five miles of 13198 which will be used in the Shel- ton water system improvement au- thorized under the $50,000 bond issue approved by Shelton resi- dents a year ago cannot be prom- ised before late in January, ac- cording to a letter received by Water Supt.

'Reward 0 Toy Renovator ‘ Not Busy Enough To Satisfy Him Don’t tell us there aren’t any , old discarded, broken and no 1 longer wanted toys in Mason County? If one were to judge by the small number of such articles 1 which have been turned over to Ora. Spencer’s toy renova— 1 tion project so far that is the conclusion one would be forced i to assume. But it’s mighty hard to be- : lieve. Surely there must be ‘ quite a large number of old toys kicking around the closets, basements and attics of Ma— son County homes—some brok— on, some discarded, some just forgotten and no longer do— i sired as playthings by their ' owners. They aren’t bringing any joy to their present possessors, but they could bring a. heap of hap— piness to children in Mason County homes whoso lot hasn’t been any too fortunate of late. So take a look around, Mom ' and Pop and Sonny, see if you can’t locate a couple of old toys no longer being used in your home and bring them down to Ora Spencer in the Social Se— curity building. He will take out the dents, patch the broken parts. dob on a bit of paint and you won’t hardly be able to tell them from new. Then he‘ll see that they reach kid- dies to whom they’ll bring a lot of genuine joy this Christmas. does have to bring his gifts minus NEwEAR LICENSES ON SALE MONDAY; ANTE Bil EEEEE. 3,300 Sets Of Plates, Record Num- , ber, Allocated Mason Coun— ty For 1942 I 1942 automobile licenses go on sale next Monday morning when the auditor’s office opens for business, with slightly increased excise taxes to be collected this year. Mason County recechd a ship— ment this week consisting of 3,- 300 sets of private vehicle plates bearing the familiar X identifying letter, plus 650 sets of truck plates and 250 sets of trailer plates, these also bearing the county iden- tification letter. The number of private vehicle plates is a new record for Mason County, but after this county had re—ordered twice on its 1941 plates, of which 3272 sets Were sold, state officials allotted an extra large number to Mason County for 1942 in the hope it would not be nec- essary to re-order next year. The 1942 plates are the reverse of this year’s as far as the color combination is concerned. haVing green letters on a white back- ground. The new $5 luxury tax. on cars will not be collected by the coun- ty auditor but by the Internal Revenue Bureau from its Taco- ma division office for this dis- trict. l i l Flared For Information On B-B Msmen Here Destruction 01 Street. Lights Be- coming So Serious City Of- ficials Begin Vigorous Investigation B—B gun marksmen among Slielton’s younger generation have played such havoc with street lights, i "l‘lRlLOl‘S and glass casings for elm: “i? mcicis on light poles that city police and the sheriff's office are conducting a vigorous investigation to uncover the cul- prits, and at the same time Man- ager E. W. Johnson of Public Utility District No. 3. whose property is involved in the depre- dations. has put up a $5 cash re- ward for information leading to the apprehension of the wrong— doers. , Mayor William Stevenson has issued instructions to Police Chief Andy Hansen to spare no effort to locate the guilty persons and promised that punishment would be severe to those found to be guilty of the damage. Confisca- tion of the guns will be. just the 'beginning of the punishment, Po- lice Chief Hansen said. 28 Lights Out One Night Manager Johnson produced a job order sheet he had issued last Monday to his crew showing the location of 28 different street lights which had been shot out over the weekend by B-B guns. and Tuesday brought in a. glass meter casing which had been pep- pered so thoroughly with B-B shots that it was split in two and partly pulverized. Six B-B shots had lodged inside the broken easing, probably three times that many had hit it. “We have been replacing an av- erage of a half dozen street lights a day lately,” he said. “but the thing has grown so bad that some- thing drastic has to be done to curb this damage to public prop- erty. That job order I gave one of our men Monday cost the public roughly $15, figuring a half day at $1 an hour to the workman, the cost of the lights we had to replace. and the use of a truck for a half day to accom- plish the replacements. Then this meter casing itself is worth around $5 to say nothing of the damage to the meter inside, which is worth between $15 and $20." Public’s Help Asked Parents of children who own air [rifles are asked to cooperate with the authorities in curbing a prac- tice which is getting out—of—hand rapidly, and anyone having infor- mation which would lead to lo- cating the guilty persons is re-‘ quested to“ notify Police Chief E Hansen or Sheriff Gene Martin. Serious accidents, it was point- ed out by Manager Johnson, can result from the absence of street lights, and lawsuits against the city could easily result from the act of extinguishing a street light. all of which has to be paid out of the taxpayers' pocket, which everyone will agree is being tap- ped painfully hard already.
