Committees for the club held last Saturday night could only be described as a smashing for the coming Christmas prog- Christmas party were chosen be -} fore the meeting closed. The next ram, a high spot on the school calendar's social aspects. This year our school district has success and a great credit to the hard-working guild members. About 65 persons attended and been making available to our chil- dren. through the Tri-County Au- dio-Visual Service, some very fine movies. Tuesday, the film "The Ama- zon" was shown and was of spec- ial interest to the fourth and sixth grades whose studies of Bra- zil and its great river coordin- ated nicely with the subject mat- ter. Principal Arthur Zebe tells us that within the past six weeks, the school's library has been siz- eably increased by the addition of 120 titles. Those books, more suited to the fourth to seventh grade room are either largely bio- graphical or of correlated scienti- fic subject matter, The first to third grade room's hooks are of a lighter vein. including some of those delightful tales of Dr. Seuss. Several fine records to be used for physical education have also been .Qrovided. THE MASON LAKE Improve- ment Club with president, :Mrs. D. H. Porter, presiding, met at the Grapeview School Sunday to discuss and receive advice on their fire protection problems. T. G. "Tuck" Pearson, secretary of the Washington State Fire Commis- sioners' Association, County Com- missioner Harry Elmlund and County Assessor Willis Barnett attended, offering the benefit of their experience to the nearly 50 persons present. There were also delegations representing the Ben- son Lake area, commissioners of Fire Protection District 5 of A1- lye and the Grapeview Volunteer Fire Department. No final decis- ions were reached but those at- tending shared the opinion that the time was well spent The 4-H Barnacles met at the home of leader, Mrs. Virginia Hicks last Tuesday after school, The final plans were made for the bake sate which is being held this weekend at the Grapeview store .The sale of such goodies as Christmas cookies, nut bread and those lucky ones taking home gifts were Mrs. Emma Dowell, Mike Benson, Mrs. Evelyn Walker, Mrs. Louise Okonek, Mrs. Shirley Engen, Mrs. Peggy Hillman, Mrs. Fred Collins, Russ Wells, Mrs. Lee Whitney and Bud Welch. Mr. Welch's generous donation of one of his two prizes led to a spirited auction of same much to the de- light and entertainment of all pre- sent as well as purchaser Russ Wells. The proceeds from the spon- taneous gesture were donated to the Orthopedic Guild treasury. Young Larry Lutz, winning the blackout game, went home better prepared for Christmas than when he came and :Mrs. Astound Rindall was the recipient of the door prize. The gorgeous Barbie doll and her luxurious wardrobe went home with Carole Battles, whose apparent enthusiasm made us wonder if daughter Lynette will ever get a chance to play with her! Chairman Judy taudt of the game night activities committee was ably assisted by Virginia Hicks with Bill Staudt "M. C. -ing" with the help of Lloyd Rich- CY. Refreshments chairman Eve- lyn Walker and committee women Leah Rindall and Emma Dowell saw to it that everyone had their fill of delicious pie, hot coffee and punch while Country Store chairman Faye Soule and assist- ant Alice Clayton had a. most in- teresting array of items display- ed, proceeds from which will be used for the good works of this active guild. Success was certain- ly deserved, for this group of ladies hms been working hard all season on various projects de- signed to provide funds for their philanthropic purposes.

It car- Card Party At Union Raises of whom were University of Wa- shington varsity football stars. Dave K0pay's serious and infor- mative talk followed and height- ened the effect of jovial Chuck Bond's clever handling of the ev- ening's favorite topic of conver- sation. Tbose Grapeviewites en- joying the evening were Bill Staudt, Bill Seiners, Howard Se- iners and son Donald Julie Stock, Waiter Eckert. "Eke" Eaerbtt and son Ken. Both "Eke" and Ann Eacrett were classmates of Chuck Bond's dad when they attended Western Washington State Col- lege, so "Eke" found that young giant especially interesting.

O that busy day, military business mat- ters were also taken care of. Judy hmched at McChord Air Force Base with both sons, Chick and Kenneth, and Kenneth underwent minor foot surgery as well. Perhaps keeping pace with his wife's busy schedule. Bill Staudt was kept hustling all day Satur- clay That day which ended with "M.C.-ing" at the Orthopedic game night, began at 8 a.m. when he chauffeured his dad. Bill Stoudt Sr. to the Kaiser Hospital in Portland, Ore,, to visit his scrim]sly ill nephew. They were much relieved to find that Louis Pierce had sui'vived a mlptured aorta, thanks to swift surgery and the marvels of plastic vessel in- serts, but left with "the knowledge that this pleasant person, known to a number of local residents, re- mained in poor condition. Fortun- ately both the weather and traf. fie pelnitted them to be back at Benson Lake by 5:30 p.m. VE ARE GLAD to learn that the Art Nicklaus family has fin- ally banished the "flu bug". Sole member of the family to escape the affliction was their youngest, little Christopher. The Don Query family has been swept off their feet by a more pleasant affliction, boat fever, ince Don has fallen heir to a 16 foot clinker-bnt craft com- plete with a five and a half horse motor. A few minor repairs and a good paint job for the sturdy craft should provide a winter's hobby and next mmamer's delight for this happy family.
