By DELORES DRAKE HOODSPORT - A warm welcome home to the Hood Canal country goes out this week to Eugene Avey who arrived home late Wednesday night after fulfilling his teaching contract as a vocational coordinator at the Truk High School in the East Caroline Islands. Six-hundred and fifty students attend the Truk High School with the student's ages ranging from 13 to 34 years. In fact the highest ranking student on the honor roll was a 24 year old man with seven children. Americanization must also be catching on in the Truk High School. It seems the students went on strike for several days, protesting the school lunches and discipline problems. When Avey returned to Truk for the new school year, his close friend, Gene Rodgers had quite a surprise for him. While Rodgers was vacationing in Hang Kong this past summer, he picked up a copy of the Hang Kong daily English newspaper. There in the rns rom Island and Mr. Avey's dark suntan can well attest to that. However along with summer also comes the drought and water has to be rationed. Being short on water is only one of the problems facing the Micronesians. There is also a food shortage. Typhoon Amy which struck the Islands last spring damaged crops and caused food spoilage. Then the dock strikes came, stranding 30,000 people who were depending on the outside market. So now if one is fortunate enough to even find a cigarette to sustain his habit, he had better plan on paying a dollar a pack. On Avey's flight home, the aircraft made a stop-over at Majuro in the Marshall Islands. The town people all came out and struck up the band as the passengers disembarked from the aircraft. Now, thought Avey, this is really a royal greeting for a small town man. Come to find out though, the U.S. Ambassador for the U.S. Trust Territory was also aboard the same aircraft. There "may have not been a IsJan eac in could get over the mountains. The remainder of the trip went well and Gene will be home for a while now as he will be teaching in Bremerton during the winter quarter. Then it will be back to Ellensburg, with graduation in the spring. The Tiny Tim Orthopedic Guild would like to extend its thanks to the community for the support given them at the Bazaar and Holiday Bake Sale. The afghan given as a door prize at the bazaar was won by Start Johnston. The Saturday bake sale gave customers a chance to get all their holiday cookies, candies and fruit breads without standing over a hot stove or cleaning up a messy kitchen.
