The property of Louis Larson west of bridge to the river was high- |y damaged by washouts. This also happened to Gadberry place as well as a lot of logs and other debris scattered on both sides of the river. Marvin Prich- ard on Entsminger place suf-: feted much in the loss of land.: The road to the Merritt place was washed out. A huge tree---full length with roots---plowed under the Halter. man bridge, damaging the rail- ing on both sides. The c~lvert on track on N. P. at Elliot Spur was washed out.

The pump house which stood in rear of the resi- dence was undermined and one corner dropped into a hole eight feet deep. The residence founda- tion also was considerably dam- aged. Similar damage was done to the driveway to the Schloman barn, and some of the barn foundation washed out. Several large holes were gouged in the barnyard. The only living thing that seemed to enjoy the flood of last week-end, were Bill Bagley's ducks. Ordinarily a couple of blocks from thte river, the ducks were happy when the river came to their pen. - Arlington last Friday night re- sembled a seaport, as one looked from the north end of the Haller bridge toward town.

Especially to Rev.

He found that his faith is not strong enough to sustain him while walking on the raging flood, but when a struggling salmon floundered out from un- der his feet while the seagoing firemen were making their way out to the Pemberton domicile i near Oso the boys figured Mick- :ey was trying to make the trip pay off. Jasper Stevens got the biggest surprise while accompanying the firemen on their trip to the Pem- bertons. Wading in ankle deep water, he suddenly found him- self up to his neck when a bank gave way. membered as one who was al- ways doing for her family's wel- fare. The community joins in ex- tending their sincere condo- lence to the family in their loss. Mr. and Mrs. J. C. Ring (Max- ine Brooks) are receiving con. gratulations on the birth of their first child, a son. Mrs. J. E. Daniel was stran'd- ed in Arlington for over the week-end due to flood condi- tions. The bus service was dis- continued until road condition improved. Glendon Rankin spent several days at the N. E. Nordstrom home visiting his son Barrie, who resides there. Several families from here spent Sunday in driving over the country looking over the flood situation, some returning quickly because of traffic con- gestion due to dike breaking at Conway. Others got to see Stan- i wood from a hillside and report- ed conditions were even worse than expected. It was like look- ing over the bay. . ' O VISTA VIEW 4-H CLUB Our club met February 13, 1951, at the home of Marilyn Amy. The first demonstration of the year was by Joan Blincoe on "Baking a Cake" last meet- ing. Marilyn gave a demonstra- tion on "Baking Powder Bis- cults." We had a short business meeting. We each brought a baking powder biscuit and after the meeting we judged them. Refreshments were served. Next meeting, at Nancy Swimme's home, each girl is to bring a cookie to be judged. --- Nancy S~vimme, reporter. lay heavy everywhere, and the scene was one of devastation, yet somehow there was a prom- ise for the future. - - - The sun was shining, and it was warm; the air was peaceful, and a large maple tree furnished the stand for a group of feath- ered artists who performed a symphony such as we had never heard. We have often bemoaned the fact that we do not have the birds here in the Puget Sound district that we have heard in the South. Maybe it's because l we do not get out where the~ birds live. [ At any rate, we have seen and l heard blackbirds before, but never in chorus such as last Monday morning. Scores of the birds perched and fluttered about the tree. We stopped to listen, and we'd swear the birds were enjoying themselves as much as we enjoyed the con- cert. We never realized there were so many tones in the Black- bird call, but as we listened we felt sure the birds were aware of their harmony---it was a pleasant note in the midst of devastation. Flood Damage One of the farms sustaining considerable damage during the recent flood was the B. C. Schlo- man homestead. Withstanding the high waters of the past 60 years, the property this year suffered its heaviest flood dam- age. The Schloman place is west of highway 1-A on the north side of the river. The flood waters excavated a hole six or eight SUN.-MON., FEB. 18-19 "The Silver Hning" June Haver .
