2. wz t" ":"r'W- ":"l"J -/~/r.--."''" SdlJIAl--'--'a~ in ice Today's editorial is sort of a continuation of the Huckleberry Friend column, so if you haven't read that yet, you might turn back and read it first so you will better understand this column. At one point during our family Thanksgiving celebration, Nan and Aseged had us all in stitches telling of an experience they had had. One day when Nan went to pick Aseged up at her residence, the Ethiopian girl remembered she wanted to show Nan some pictures and ran back into her building to get them. Nan said Aseged is obviously very popular with the patients at Fircrest, where she lives, because several followed her to Nan's car when she reappeared. First, for those who have never met my sister, she is a fair-skinned blonde who got her coloring from our Scandinavian or German ancestors. Aseged, as can be seen from the picture on page one, looks exactly like what she is, a native-born African. To get back to the story, Aseged introduced her friends to Nan and everyone chatted for a few minutes when one of the mentally retarded women about 26 years old asked, in all seriousness, if Aseged and Nan were sisters. Of course, we all thought this was hilarious that someone would mistake them for sisters; besides their complete opposite coloring is the fact that Aseged speaks with an accent and Nan doesn't. Remarks like "Had you forgotten to wash your face that day, Nan?" or "Maybe you weren't feeling well, Aseged, and looked a little pale," brought forth more laughter. But later on, when l thought about it, I remembered how it is often said that children see truths unseen by their elders and I think this 26-year old woman with the mind of a child can see some things more clearly than the rest of us. How often have we been reminded that it is not the outward appearance of a person which matters; nor how he is clothed or the color of his skin; but what he is like on the inside? Here was a woman who simply did not notice that Aseged's skin was black and Nan's was white. She noted only their friendliness, that they were both nice people and judged them to be similar enough to wonder if they were sisters. Won't it be a Great Thanksgiving Day when everyone judges his fellow man by his character and personality rather than by his color or religion? If only everyone had the insight of this patient at Fircrest, the upcoming Christmas season might truly be a time of "Peace on Earth and Goodwill toward men." "Christmas is in the air," according to Mrs. Erma Roessel, the local Salvation Army Area Representative," but to many, poverty does exist, and becomes painfully evident at Christmastime. No one will knock at your door tonight, seeking a meal, a pair of shoes, or a place to sleep, because The Salvation Army will be meeting those needs. Also of great concern to The Salvati.on Army, will be the necessary contacts to rest homes, hospitals, prisons, all of which is accomplished with an anxiety to serve those less fortunate." The local committee stated that no child will go without a toy, or an unwed mother without personal attention. Meals to the homeless and handicapped men, will be a priority at this season of the year. A Christmas letter appeal will arrive at area homes during the first week of December, and the local Salvation Army Service Extension Committee encourages everyone to respond by return mail. A prompt response to this appeal will help meet the needs of those early expenditures which are required. With many, Christmas giving in this manner has become a tradition, an intricate part of the Season's activities. Contributions can be sent to the local Salvation Army Area Representative, Mrs. Erma Roessel, P. O.

The forestland grading criteria have Brooks are getting rid of their been adopted by the Washington State Department of Revenue as one of the first steps in the implementation of the state's new forest tax law. The rules establish land quality classifications for Douglas fir, western hemlock and Ponderosa pine forestlands, as well as accessibility and topographical classifications. Forestland is defined in the new law as land in continuous ownership of 20 or more acres which is primarily devoted to and used for the growing and harvesting of timber. Passed by the 1971 Legislature, the new law provides ultimately for a tax on timber at the time of harvest and does away with the "'ad valorem" property tax on timber which was paid last year. The land on which timber is grown will remain under the property tax system, but the law includes provisions aimed at achieving more equality and uniformity in the grading and valuation of forestlands statewide. The newly adopted rules establish three forestland quality classes: good, average and poor. Basically, the classifications indicate productive quality of the forestland. Each land quality class will be further classified into one of four accessibility and topography classifications - favorable, average, difficult or inoperable. With 47 ribbons and eight trophies to show for his efforts, Ding, Belfair's prize-winning Brittany Spaniel, has finished his show career with 18 points, three more than required, to become a finished champion.

The FB1 and local Sheriff's office are investigating the vandalism of mail boxes on Mason Lake, virtually every mail box on Mason Lake, with the exception of Paradise, where it was well-lighted, were either rammed, with a car and destroyed or pried off with a crow bar. What sort of kicks would anyone get out of doing that? Well, since the FBi always gets its man, maybe we will know. The monthly birthday dance was very poorly attended. Only 26 were present, but, like always, they all had a goo~l time. A car missed the curve just the other side of the railroad tracks across from the horse farm last Saturday night. The unidentified driver made his way to Mr. Wood's home on Benson Lake and in turn called the Sheriff's office. He was quite badly cut around the face, but otherwise not badly hurt.
