"'It is not good that man should be alone. '" -- Old Testament, Genesis For the second time in a row, the Issaquah Press presents Bachelors of Issaquah, a guide to unmarried men who live or work in the Issa- quah area. The Press staff is grateful to the many people in the community who turned in their friends, co-workers and sons to be featured in this section. Rest assured, if you turned in a name, that person was called. If your bachelor does not appear on the follow- ing pages, either he wasn't answering his phone, didn't return his calls or didn't want the publicity. One or two men were anxious to advertise their bachelorhood! The first question out of every bachelor's mouth was, "Who gave you my name?" (Don't worry, we didn't tell.) M.ny asked if we would do a section on single women. Much as we'd like to, we decided last year that single women are much more vulnerable to harass- ment. There is a "'classified" section in the back for women who wanted to tell about themselves. Anyone in the community who would like to meet these and other local bachelors should come to the Holiday Inn on Thursday, June 2 for the bachelor get-together at 8 p.m. There will be a no-host bar and complimentary hors d'oeuvres.

Box 1196, Issaquah, 392-8197 Age: 31, 5 feet, 9 inches, brown hair, brown eyes He isn't ashamed to admit his real name is Waldemar. In fact, he's proud. That tells you something about the dual nature of the guy -- casual Wally on the outside, serious Waldemar on the inside. Even his clothes reflect it. A se- quined western shirt from K-Mart shares the closet with conservative pinstripes from Nordstrom. Wally grew up in North Dakota and moved to Los Angeles after graduating from high school. "The main ex- port in North Dakota is people -- I decided to go with the flow," he explained. After a few years in college he joined up with Christian singing group and for the next five years, traveled all over Europe and recorded five albums. After- wards, he left the group and set up an import-export business in Amsterdam for a year. Later he came back to Wenatchee where his family lived, and worked as a counselor at a group home for the disabled. Now, in his fourth career, he is a graphics designer at Lutheran Bible In- stitute. Wally might take a date to see little foreign and art films or go listen to jazz music. He enjoys women with a sense of style. She must also speak up - or he'll monopolize the conversation ! /! Jim Williams 438 Windsor Way N.E., Renton, 255-1870 Age: 43, 5 feet, 7 inches, brown hair, green eyes As an industrial arts teacher at Liberty High School, Jim reflects the ideal qualities for his profession: self-control, calmness, confidence, curiosity and concern for kids. He is also exceptionally well dressed and groomed, traits which are bound to pile up points with dates. A native Oklahoman, Jim was raised in the Seattle area, graduated from Central Washington University when he received his master's in education. He has been teaching since 1966. Jim enjoys snow skiing, water sports (boating and swim- ming), serious running (as distinguished from jogging), and sports car rallying in his Porsche 914. He distinguishes between two different types of ideal dates. One is a "Levi's" date, cruising with the top down, touring a winery and having a picnic. The other is dressing up, heading downtown to take in some culture. Jim's ideal woman would be attractive, slender, health- minded and well dressed. She would show interests in many topics, converse easily and generally be well- rounded. She would have to feel comfortable meeting many new friends and share Jim's enjoyment working with young people. Take her the stars. We have an excellent selection of kites, model rockets and other objects that ride on the wind. We know what a good time is all about.

MARRIED ERNIE SMITH TOM REEVES ENGAGED BRUCE HENDERSON Bruce was called by a woman who saw his write-up in last year's Bachelors of Issaquah section. It turns out they had met before. Suzanne Thayer had been a travel agent for Bruce and when she saw his picture, she remembered working with him. It took her a month to work up enough courage to call him, but once she did, they hit it off immediately. They will be married in September.
