Firemen Answer Calls To Simpson IBP Plant Shelton City firemen last week- end answered two alarms at Simp- son Timber Company's Insulating Board Plant and extinguished bla- zes in the dryer. W. B. Johnson, manager, insu- lating board division, said fiber-i board dust in the dryers caught fire Friday night and Saturday morning. No equipment was dam- VANCLEAVE Continued from page 1) Hcuston, an opponent of the pro- posal, said that to him it was sur- rending local reputation and pride to a panel of experts who would tell the community what was good for it in the way of library service. It would remove one facet of "thought control" from local hands and invest it in a regional library board, he continued. It has been the experience in the past, he said, that when Mason County joins with others in any- thing, Mason County comes out on the short end because it is not big enough. He said that members of the city library board had worked hard for years to attend to the operation of the library, and, that to overrule them on this issue would not be right. Heuston also commented he could see no reason why the fe- deral government should put mon- -ey into getting the experiment running. He also commented that he would like to see the agree- merit in black and white before the city went into it. Andrew Beelik, speaking in sup- port of the proposal, said that in the matter of purchase of books, the books for the library now are purchased by the librarian, and, that for the regional library they would be purchased by a commit- tee of librarians from the parti- cipating libraries, so that •there would actually be little difference. HE SAID HE believed that the answer to "thought control" was as much information available on any subject as possible, and, that participation in the demonstration would, for the two-year period, give Shelton Library patrons ac- cess to a greatly expanded am- ount of material in print. Tim demonstration would give the city a chance during the two: years to see if it wants the kind of library service the larger or- ganization could provide. A letter was read from the state librarian stating that for the de- monstration period there would be no formal contract but, that an agreement for participation for each library would be worked out. It was pointed out by Barrie Stroud, a member of the county- city library study committee a year ago, that it had been the recommendation of the study com- mittee that Shelton join in the de- aged, but 16 hours of production monstration. Jim Connolly, a member of the time were lost while the dryer ........ r " e- t r - . ounty Janmng ¢JolnnllSSlOn, e- wa clean a ou. w ews were Kept ............ • porung on me acuviues oz ma on the job to perfoz the cleanu . . . operation. -group, told the Chamoer members Art Exhibit At Sheton Library From Dec. 18 to Jan. 2, Shelton Public Library will have on dis- play 26 paintings by 22 artists who have been represented in ma- jor exhibitions in the Northwest. The exhibition is the fifth annual travelling show exhibition of paintings by the Lambda Rho Alumnae, 'Women's Art Honorary, University of Washington. This year the exhibition is dedi- cated to the memory of Evelyn Gooding Of Olympia, the first chairman of the Alumnae's trav- elling exhibition. The exhibition left the Student Union Bulding, University of Washington, Oct. 25 . It will be shown in eight cities in southeastern Washington and will return to Seattle in the spring of 1964. The Helen Nielsen Rhodes Me- morial Scholarship Fund, which provides a scholarship yearly to an outstanding art student in the University of Washington, will benefit by 20 percent of the pro- ceeds from the sale of paintings ip the exhibit. The exhibit comes to Shelton from Hoquiam, and on leaving here will move to Centralia. The jury of selection consists of Sydney Engeset, artist and facul- ty member, Art Department, Pa- cific Lutheran University; Helen Graves, artist; and La Deanne TaLe, artist and faculty member Art Department, Olympic College.

The group has a proposed zon- ing ordinance for the county, he said, but has moved slowly. De- mand for the zoning ordinance will have to come from the people, he said. The object of it is to solve problems before they occur. The more populated areas are the ones in which problems most often crop up he said. STREET PROGRAM (Continued from page 1) from Franklin to Birch, and E Street from the Olympic Highway to the cemetery and right of way on Turner Street from Sixth to Seventh Streets. Estimated cost of these three projects is $16,200. PLANNED FOR 1967 is the improvement of Euclid Street from Second to 10th Street and Deleware Street from Second Street to Pioneer ,ray. Estimated cost of these two projects is $21,- 100. The 1968 program calls for im- prow41ent of Arcadia from Lake Boulevard to the Olympic High- way and Lake Boulevard from Second to University Streets with the estimated cost $20,000. Proposed .or 1969 is the im- provement of Tenth Street from Turner to Euclid Streets and grade preparation, engineering and rightof-way on Ravenna Way from Seventh to 10th Streets. Byrne pointed out that this is not a firm program and that changes can be made as circum- stances warrant. Another part of the city's street improvement program, Byrne pointed out, is the allocation of $69,000 over the next six years for city participation in Local Im- provement Districts. Under a res- olution passed last summer, the city guarantees property owners along an LID a maximum assess- ment rate of $4.50 a front foot for residential streets and $6.50 for commercial streets. This, he said, amotmts to about half the cost of the work which would in- clude preparation and blacktop- ping of the street and curb and gutter. It does not, he said, in- clude the cost of right-of-way and storm sewers where they would be necessary. THE CITY HAS allocated $8,- 000 for its participation in LIDs in 1964 and this amount is grad- ually increased under the six-year street program to reach $16,000 in 1969. Another part of the program which is being discussed is the proposal of a general obligation bond issue to the voters for the constrncton of storm sewer trunk lines. Byrne said. Many areas in the city cannot have blacktopped streets until storm drain facilities are installed, he said. The com- mission will study the idea of a bond issne.

DOUBLE DELIVERIES PL&NNED BY K-M DAIRY Wednesday holidays (Christmas and New Years) the next two weeks compel change in home delivery schedules by the Kitsap- Mason Dairy, manager Bud Knut- zen announced yesterday. Since the Shelton plant will be closed both holidays, normal Wednesday deliveries will be can- celled and compensated by double deliveries on the preceding Mon- days, Knutzen said, unless custo- mers wish other arrangements and instinct either their driver or the plant office to that affect. Jim Pauley, chairman of the a vote is yet determined, Byrne Shelton Port Commission, report- said. ed on the activities of that group.
