On a community level we enjoy the Christmas program presented by the children in our schools, church- es and clubs; the caroling on the streets and for shut-ins at home and in hospitals. Another enjoyable tradition is prcsented in this week's Journal where as in the past the children have drawn the greetings sent to you by Shelton and Mason county businesses. Read them all . . . both the children who drew the greet- ing and the merchant who's goDS wishes it conveys would like to know you enjoyed it. Not all of the drawings could be used due to the great number sub- mitted. Following is a list ot 4th, 5th and 6th grade Shelton students who sent in fine Christ.. mm drawings.

As the Journal went to its unus- ually early press deadline this Week. the fund had reached $725.37 of the intended $750 goal. Late contributions, it is hoped, would reach or pass the goal. A considerable over-shoot wouldn't hurt a thing because it is already certain the $750 will not cover all expenses of the 75 baskets which were scheduled for- distribution Tuesday. SO KEEP THOSE contributions coming, neighbors! Send them to the Journal for acknowledgement.

WILLIAM ARLID Johnson and The school district this year was Associates, Everett, have been era- education facilities fo rthe school which now uses those at Lower Skokomish Elementary School in its district on a temporary basis. The building would be built beside the Junior High School near the intersection of Highways 101 and 21C. ployed as architects cud have completed preliminary plans for the new building. The need for a gymnasium was known when the school was ,built in 1960. but. at the time, financ- ing was impossible. Since then the board has been working on the problem and plans to submit ft to the voters in March. Supt. John Pill stressed one point on which he says there has , been misunderstanding in cmmec- tion with the proposed new gym- nasium He said that the district has no intention of establishing a high school, and in fact. could not ge state approval under regula- tions set up by the 1963 session of the State Legislature. Pill said that the new building was necessary if the district was to be able to house its Junior high students and to keep its accred- itation from the state which re- sults in more attendance money for the district.

By the time the train reached Portlan0 the youngster fully recovered ana Miss Butler was warmly congrat- ulated by passengers and train crewmen for her successful effort at saving the baby's life. Miss Butler, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. William E. Butler of Lake Boulevard.
