VOLUME LXXVIII Burn Road By Ella Lockett We hope this lovely weath- er holds through Thursday so no plans for a happy Fourth of July will have to be chang- ed and we hope it will be a safe one for all of US. So have fun but be very careful: As worthy matron of Beth- el Chapter O.E.S., Mrs. Har- old Goodrich attended the Grand Chapter session in Ta- coma from Thursday till Sat- urday. Mrs. Jack Webb, Mrs. Beulah Lease and Mrs. Chas. Lockett attended with her- a very enjoyable and busy three days, Charlene W e b b arrived from Venezuela last Sunday after four years' absence from home. She brought with her one of her former pupils, Hilma Lewis, who had just graduated from high school. They stopped in Pennsylva- nia and Chicago on business then by bus to the Coast. Tuesday Charles and Floe- ta, Charlene and Hilma drove to Portland where Hilma en- rolled at Mutlanomah Bible School. On their return they stopped in Kelso for a visit with Marion (James) Simp- son, she and Charlene were school chums in Granite. They had dinner with Mari- on and her family including her mother, Emma James, and her aunt, Luella. They had a most enjoyable evening and Emma James sent greetings to all her friends and we say "Hello" right back. It's good to hear from Emma. Miss Eda Lang of Pasadena, Calif., arrived for a visit with her sisters and families. Sun- day the family had dinner at the home of Etta Lang, then all drove to Lake Samish where their niece, Leila Steckleberg, is supervisor of the summer camp for Camp- fire and Bluebirds. They were invited to attend Ves- per services and also were invited to have dinner at the camp. They report a most in- teresting afternoon and eve- ning. A letter to his mother from Ron Chew in Greece where he is on maneuver, but soon leaving for Crete, sounds as if he was enjoying the trips to all the foreign ports, and having an opportunity to see so much of the world. No news, but lots of work to to -- so have a very fine and safe weekend. I ii i Phone AL 2-2191 Everett THURSD,Y, JULY 4, 1968 SINGLE COPY 10c NUMBER 22 Monte Cristo By C. E.

Joe and Doris Brewer, with their three daughters, moved out June 1 to take over the airfield and "gcow with the community." Joe Brewer started flying in 1965. Soon his enthusiasm infected Doris, and she earn- ed her pilot's license too. They decided to move to Washington, hoping to find somethingconnected with fly- ing. "We never dreamed that we'd have our own airport," Joe commented. But though they have the airport, at pre- sent they have no plane of their own. This is one of the first projects they have plans for. At present their are six hangars on the field. Joe hopes to expand these facil- ities. He is looking for a lic- ensed A and E mechanic to work part time at the field. There isn't enough work at the present for a full time man, though Joe expects the work to pick up as soon as some one locates at his field. Tentatively, Joe is planning to give a ground school course starting in the fall. This would last for six to eight weeks, meeting once a week for three hours. When finish- ed, students should be able to pass the written test for a private pilot's license. Any- one interested should call for information at OW 1-2643. While waiting for his plans to materialize, Joe is the Used Car Manager at Pack- wood Motors in Everett. Doris is kept busy with nine year old Laura, eight year old Tracy, and Dorian, who is six. The girls are very happy living out in the country where there is room for them to play. The berry growers are des- perately in need of help as the berries have ripened so fast the past couple of days. It does seem a shame that so many berries will go to waste for lack of help.
