The group gave de- monstrations, t h e n sat around a camp fire, sang songs, told jokes and stories, and roasted marshmallows. Saturday, after breakfast, members lay around camp for awhile then went for a hike, returning in time for lunch. For lunch each camper got a stick and made shish-kabobs over the open coals. Then they cleaned up camp and went home. The club wants to thank Nancy Adams for her plan- ning and work that made the eampout a success and to thank our state park for the campsite. DALE MONTZ, Rellerter hatchery, is named for the late John H. Gibson, promi- nent Kiwanian and civic leader. It was rebuilt from what was once an open-air Works Progress Administra- tion shelter into a useable community meeting place dedicated to youth activities. IN the current project, be- ing done under the direction of President Doug Moore, a new roof is being put on and the interior remodeled and redecorated. The rest room building, badly vandalized, is being rebuilt and its plumb- ing replaced. New horse- shoe pits are leing built and the former wading pool will be turned to use as an over- size sandbox for the small fry. Off-street parking is being laid out and new tables have been built for the pie- hie area. If funds hold out the club hopes to add an electric stove.

If an award of con- tract is made promptly the house will be ready for use this fall. It will be on a site in the park vicinity west of the creek. The other project, to be undertaken later this year or perhaps next spring, consists of modifications of the trap- ping and holding structures. The change will allow for longer holding of the mature salmon before egg - taking and egg - fertilization. The present pond will be im- proved with concrete, and timber structures and re- lated piping. Cagle said it probably will not be possible to do this work in time for use next winter. CALENDAR...

Mike Shain isn't about to try anything new, he says, in spite of a lifelong habit of doing just that. As a 180-pound lad of 12 he was doing a man's work in the Alaskan mines nearly 50 years ago. At an age when most kids are wondering if they shouldn't start shaving, Shain was flying Jennies over England in the Royal Canadian Air Force during World War I. From then until 1940 he was in mining, cannery and fishing enter- prises in Alaska. Then he became northwest manager of the federal war assets ad- ministration and for 10 years had charge of Auburn and South Tacoma depots. IN 1950 he came to Issa- quah Where he had owned property jointly with his par- ents for many years. He was in the real estate busi- ness for three years, then, on August 1. 1953, bought the Shamrock Cafe. Did Mike or his wife have any restaurant experience? No, but that was all right.
