Lake Stevens measure was four or five inches, the same as the in-town Granite Falls measurement. In rural areas the depth was greater. de News By Marie Graham t'he weather on Monday, sday, Wednesday and Jrsday of last week found Riverside gatherings mcelled. The Friendly Club :heduled to meet Thursday at the Thompson residence on the Blue Spruce Road (Chapell Rd. I believe the road is called on the county road sign) was cancelled by phone until the next Thursday. A surprising number of students did show up for lessons at the Gralmm Studio. Their mothers seem to be brave adventurers as far as driving on icy roads is concerned. My "hat is off" to Julia Sarvis and Alison Kacoroski for braving the perils of that icy strip called the Jordan Road. Thursday evening an excited Orrie Gates infomled the writer by phone that the grandchild has arrived in Huntington Beach, Calif. - a girl weighing 7 lbs., 2 oz. Marvin Gates, the son, was so sure she would be a boy that a girl's name hadn't even been considered. Anyway, little Laurie will make the fourth girl for the Marvin Gates family. Sunday evening dinner guests of Rev. Taylor and Alice Dunlap at the Hide-a-way Lodge on the Pilchuck were Mr. and Mrs. Everett Graham. It was here Everett collected a recipe for marinating Teriacha steaks. Rev. Dunlap broiled porterhouse steaks over coals in the huge native stone fireplace of the lodge and were they ever good! A tossed salad and a freshly baked Deer Mountain boysenberry pie topped with cheese finished off the dinner menu• Thanks go to the undaunted bowling ladies for getting the news from Riverside to Jim Sweet's office. With big Ronnie Bernethy driving the family station wagon, the ladies came by at 12 noon as usual ready for bowling come snow, ice or what have you. The ladies from the Riverside area compose two teams. The one team sponsored by Vera and Carl of tile Jordan Store is made up of Elden Lundberg, Barbara Bernethy and Sandy Westvang. The other team sponsored by the Bridge Auto Rebuild of Seattle was composed of Shirley Brooks, Barbara Copple and Jan Phillips. However, this last week Darla Perrigoue and Joyce Ramey substituted for Mrs. Copple and Jan Phillips. Twelve teams are in the Hit and Mrs. League. The Jordan Store Team is at the top - the Bridge Auto Rebuild Team Shirley Brooks cheerfully reports is pretty close to the bottom• Back from Entiat up in the apple and pear country is George Bernethy. sporting a new pickup. This season he worked later in the orchards than usual - up until December 8. Deloris Pearsall tells me that her dad is a sort of roving overseer of the pear and apple picking crews - inspecting possible bruised fruit and the like. After the crops are picked he remains to pick up props and equipment putting it in storage for file winter• Sounds like an interesting life in Eastern Washington country. We find out this weekend that daughter Carol, studying at the University of Washington, is chairman of the undergraduate chemistry council. As chairman of tire council size sits in on the faculty meetings of the entire chemistry department and consequently is privileged to be on more than speaking temas with many professors that she would never see or know in the ordinary run of the mill class procedure. Tile Pioneer Hall in Arlington provides a varied program for a number of Riverside residents• I note by the program news given me by Mrs. Cliff Lewis that she is on the cheer-up committee for retired people that might be ill in the Riverside-Granite area. Also on the volunteer staff under nmsic I see the names of Cliff Lewis, Judy and Reg Heitman from the Granite Falls-Riverside area. An organized program is set up generally for Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday for the complete month. Under instructors I read: creative writing instructor, Mildred Bierman; oil painting instructor, Thelma Johnson; knitting, crocheting and hairpin lace instr., Mrs. Wiggs; square dance lessons, Roger Bowman. Visiting the center sponsored by the Cascade Valley hospital from the Riverside area - mostly on a Friday were Anna Reed, Mr. and Mrs. Ed Duncan, George Bernethy, Mr. and Mrs. Bob Brown, Mr. and Mrs. Cliff lewis and Manda Shuman. In the middle of the big snow came Mrs. Frances Simpson from across tile road to have dinner with the Grahams on a Tuesday night. She was the first to sample Everett Grahams first try on Teriacha Steaks - only instead of porterhouse steaks he used venison chops and broiled them in an ordinary oven, not over fireplace coals. The writer can report that both she and Mrs. Simpson thought the first try was another success for the Deer Mt. Jam maker. The Central Baptist Church reports an attendance o'f 140 for their second Sunday morning in their new building on Sleepy Hollow Road. There would have been more the church fathers feel had the clocks in Granite Falls been set up after the power failure of early Sunday morning. Mr. Gates reports the two buses full to capacity - in fact, they are looking for a used bus to add to the fleet to take care of the Verier run which seems to be growing in numbers by leaps and bounds• After a change in numbers twice since the directory came out in August, the reporter's telephone number has finally settled on 691-7801. If you have anything of interest to report from the Riverside area, please give me a ring before noon on Mondays. Motorbike violations Eight persons were cited and convicted in 1970 for violating the Wilderness Act by riding motorbikes in Wildernesses in Oregon and Washington. Four violations occurred in the Mt. Jefferson Wilderness, Oregon; three in Eagle Cap Wilderness, Oregon; and one in Glacier Peak Wilderness, Washington. There are 14 dedicated Wildernesses in the two States. Up Silverton Way By Ellie Loomer Mushed through the snow tO Who needs a phone in town? chat a spell with Phyllis and Hank Riise. Have you ever seen a skating rink bird feeder? Well I have!! The Gray jays and the Bluejays would slide to catch their food, and the only thing lacking was file music of "The Skater's Waltz"! Hank said Phyllis was a real 'nut' about the snow, the wonders of nature, dnd the beauty of it all! Of course, Hank likes it too as all of our men do and are happy Nat At, LaVerne Murray nor I as we have quite a communications system going with our blinking lights! Right, LaVerne? Alice Tompkins' folks, John and Mary Ouldhouse, celebrated their 58th wedding anniversary Thursday. How about that? Neighbors, friends and relations shared their anniversary cake and wished them well as do we in Silverton, Lake need out 73-70 Lake Stevens was dealt its fifth loss of the season by five points or less last Friday night wheu arJ amazing last-minute rally fell just short aud host Arlington got away wilh a 73-70 win. Tile loss dropped Lake to 14 in league play and 2-8 overall, but still in hot p u r su it of a possible tournament spot. Arlington's dominance of tire boards combined with 55% shooting to give the Eagles the upperhand in the first half. They made a shainbles of the Laker defense in the process, rocking to an early 12-2 lead. Lake spurted late in the first quarter to cut it down to 17-13, and trailed 19-13 at quarter's end. In the second frame Arlington threatened to run away with the game, twice posting 17-point leads• Only tile efforts of Skip Quigley, on a rampage throughout the game, saved Lake from being hopelessly behind at llalftime. Quigley scored 7 points in tire second quarter to keep Lake within 41-28 at halftinae. Lake had doomed itself to that deficit by hitting on only 4 of 14 free throws up to that point, despite 48% sharpshooting from the field. Lake came out even hotter, ahnost unbelievably so, in the second half, hitting 7 of 11 shots in the third quarter and 11 of 18 in the frantic fourth. Our defense, unfortunately, did not significantly improve, and every time we made a move to close the gap the Eagles made a counter-move to open it up again. After edging to within 48-39, the third quarter ended with Arlington almad by a fairly commanding 54-43. It seemed a hopeless cause at Getchell Gatherings By Mac Bosworth There is about 3 inches of snow on tile ground. Road conditions are hazardous. Start early to work and be careful, many have had accidents. Ehner and Bette Hughes were here on Saturday on business and visited relatives. A son was born to Mr. and Mrs. Timothy King January 11, 1971. Grandmother is Natalie King of Marysville. She formerly lived here many years and Tim went to grade school and high school here. This makes the family 3 sons• Virginia Marker visited friends on Thursday afternoon• With the snow keeping roads in a bad condition people are getting on their boots and walking when they need to get OU t. Marion Husby has had surgery recently and is okay now and will soon go back to work again. The Grace Baptist Church will have a reception on Thursday evening Jan. 21 - to honor tile pastor and his family. They have been here 2 years. They were recently in South Dakota. Esther Klein visited her mother who is in the Merricrest Nursing Home in Everett - on Wednesday. Relatives of Don and Barbara Main gathered at the home of Bob and Doris Main on Sunday to celebrate several, birthdays. Ruth and Harry Akleres were there from Greyland, others from Lake Stevens and Frontier Village. Not much news this week. With bad road conditions folks just didn't go out very much.

Blair Martineau contributed I0 points to Lake's near-miracle. Ubiquitous Bob Wayt scored 21 points for his team and the 6-2 forward also netted 18 rebounds. Stan Smoke and Jeff Rusko each scored 18, with Rusko getting 12 rebounds. Tom Hall's I0 rebounds were most for Lake.

' Requests for pictures may be And with 2:15 to play it was still 69-57. What happened in the next minute of play happened so fast that even Laker fans couldn't quite grasp it. Larry Lian, Bob Anderson, and Lian again made baskets - the latter coming on a steal off the full-court press. That made it 69-63, with 1:40 to go. Bob Wayt countered with a lay-in for Arlington, but Lian scored again, and Quigley followed that up with a 3-point play. It was 71-68 with 45 seconds left. Arlington's Nelson converted one free throw, missed file second, and Quigley was fouled on the rebound. He made both of his free throws to reduce the margin to 72-70, and still 32 seconds to play. Wayt was deliberately fouled with 21 seconds showing, and missed both free throws. The rebound was a jump between Anderson and Roy Harris, and the ball was batted towards the Eagle bucket - just out of reach of Larry Palmer and retrieved by an Arlington player. Wayt was again fouled with 9 seconds left. He made the first, missed the second, and the rebound was taken away from Anderson by Harris• Harris was fouled with 5 seconds left. He missed Iris shot, Quigley rebounded and was driving in for a lay-in when he was shoved away, but no foul was called. Lake was proud of its comeback but disgusted that the game had been tossed away by its perplexingly terrible free-throw shooting. Going into file fourth quarter Lake had made 5 of 22 from the line. Five of 6 in the fourth quarter brought the final figure to 10 of 28. We made our last 7 field goals without a miss to wind up 30 of 54, 56%. The pros will take that percentage anytime. The sad irony is that Lake could't win with it. Arlington oSlo6t a superlative 48% itself, 29 I. They won 'it at the line, 15 of 27, and on the backboards, pulling in 48 rebounds of Lake's 35. There were scoring heros a-plenty. Cool Larry Lian poured in 20 counters for Lake Stevens, the same number as the rambunctious Mr. Quigley, who accounted for another 14 points with 7 assists, and managed to take away 7 rebounds from the Arlington musclemen. Bob Anderson, relieving for Tom Hall who • fouled out in the third quarter, The Bluebirds annual mint sale will begin on Jan. 30, and it will continue thru Feb. 17. They will be selling postal and chocolate mints at $2.50 per box. Each girl makes seven cents per box which goes to her individual group for summer camp expenses• They're looking forward to the mint sale and will tackle it with their usual enthusiasm. The girls are really starting this year off right by jumping right in. The entire Valley District of the Pilchuck Area Council of Campfire Girls, are having a swim party at the YMCA. This involves eleven groups from the different schools, combining the Bluebirds with the Campfire Girls. This is one way the girls get to know one another better.
