"They run to avoid the noise and often keep running until they are exhausted and hope- lessly lost." Common sense advice to pet owners, she said, is keep- ing cats and dogs indoors at this time and always keeping identification on them, even if it's simply the owners name and phone number on a piece of paper taped to a collar. "On and around th.e 4th of July, animal shelters are flooded with calls about lost and found pets, yet fewer than three percent are wear- ing a license or ID tag," said Mrs. Knouse. If you have lost or found a stray animal, report it to PAWS in Lynnwood at 743- 3845. The loud noise of fire- works at this time of year is confusing to animals and greatly increases the number of lost pets, according to the Progressive Animal Welfare Society. "The noise frightens cats and dogs who are left uncon- Memorial fountain dedicated at Vasa Park Midsummer Fest A beautiful fountain will be dedicated to the memory of Vasa Order of America by members and friends of Vasa Park at the annual Midsum- mer Fest at the park on Lake Sammamish June 26. "We have worked very hard to come up with an ap- propriate memorial to the many people who have given of their time and talents to build and preserve this park for the enjoyment of past, present and future genera- tions. Vasa Park has been in existence since 1926 and is a self-supporting park open to the public," said Marge Ken- dall, park manager. Midsummer Fest has been chosen for the dedication. The day will start off with a Swedish pancake breakfast served from 9 a.m. until noon. Following will be a day of activities for all ages. There will be booths with Scandinavian crafts and some foods and a program at 1:45 p.m. featuring Dennis Andersen and the Nordiska Folkdancers.

Registration deadline is June 25. The Ark's owner, Joyce Graves, said, "The pedigrees have plenty of opportunities to compete. We want to recognize the outstanding mixed breeds. They deserve much more attention than they ever get." Animal owners can enter their pets in a variety of categories, including: Best Costume, Best Trick, Master and Pet Look-A-Like, Best Tail Wagger, Oddest Combination of Breeds and many more. There is something for everyone entering the contest, with trophies, ribbons and gift certificates going to the win- ners. Unlike many pedigree pet competitions, there is no en- try fee. However, the registration must be made in person at The Ark. For infor- mation call 392-2035. companying engraved rock will take place during the program. A dance will be held in the ballroom at 4 p.m. featuring Hank Olson's Vikings. This has been a popular event at Midsummer drawing both young and old doing tradi- tional Scandinavian dance steps. Good food and good times will prevail at Vasa Park dur- ing this annual affair with the dedication being the high- light of the day. For further information, call 746-3260. Fourth of July forecast: hot and chill Fourteen chili teams are now entered in the 1983 Issa- quah chili cookoff to be held July 4 on Memorial Field. Judges for the event are Hel- ene Petersen, Ronnie McKel- vy, Bryce Horst, Leslie Kari, Ellen Barouh, Camilla Brockway, Pat Jones, and Doug Wilkey. Chili cooks interested in entering the cookoff should contact The Issaquah Press at 45 Front St. S., or call 392- 6434. No more pop top cans after July 1 Detachable pull tabs will be gone from canned beverages sold in Washing- ton state after July I, as a re- sult of Department of Ecology regulations adopted last October. The changeover to tabs that don't detach un- der normal use, or to self-ad- hesive strips, is nearly com- plete. The regulations result from a bill initiated by pri- vate industry and passed in the 1982 regular session of the State Legislature. The ban applies to detachable metal pull tabs and rings on cans used for soft drinks, beer, and other beverages, but not to bottle caps. Distributors are required to retrieve cans with detacha- ble pull tabs delivered to re- tail outlets since June 1. Af- ter July 1, violators face warning notices and possible fines of up to $500 per day. Detachable pull tabs have contributed to the .state's lit- ter volume, and the sharp- edged tabs are a hazard underfoot and have been swallowed by humans, ani- mals, birds, and fish. WDOE officials are confident that the ban will be an asset to the state's Model Litter Control & Recycling Program. Information on how to re- port violations of the ban is available from Litter Hot- line, 1-800-LITTERS. r Over I million people have already won!
