Visits Arlington, Family Legend On Monday, Feb. 23, while Ar- lington business houses were ob- serving the Washington birthday holiday, a visitor came to town to see at first hand, the town that was a family legend, the basis for many fireside tales while he was growing up. Walter Jurgensen, 54, assistant to the president of the United American Life Insurance Com- pany, dropped in to the Times office and informed us that as a growing boy he had heard a lot about Arlington. His father, Pe- ter Jurgensen, a .plasterer-brick- layer, he said, came to Arlington in 1892 to work for Thomas Moran. With a family of five children, the panic of '93 caught them here without work. Mr. Moran i gave Mr. Jurgensen train fare to l take the family back to Ne- braska, and Mrs. Moran pre- pared food to see them through. Moran also gave Mr. Jurgensen; a total abstainer, three pints of whiskey, which came in handy in pursuading porters to arrange sleeping quarters for the chil- dren. Walter Jurgensen was born in Nebraska. He says that this is his first visit to Puget Sound, and he is well pleased with the country. He now has charge for his company of the Northwest territory, which includes Wash- ington, Idaho, Montana, Wyo- ming and the Dakotas. He says that he plans on retiring short- ly, and he hopes to make his fu- ture home in theSound country.

From the 17th century 3chool the choir has selected "Plorate Filii Israel," by Giaco- ma Carissimi (1604-1674) ; "He- die Christus Natus Est" by Jan Pieters Sweelinch (1619); and "O God. Thou Faithful God," by [ohannes Brahms (1646). From the great European composers the choir will sing "Salvation is Created," by P. Tschesnokoff; "It is a Good Thing to Give Tl~anks," by Constantine Schvedoff; "Come and.Let Us Worship,', by Alexan- "der Gretchaninoff; and "To Thee We Sing," by K. Schvedov. From the more recent composi- tions the choir sings "The Crea- tion," by Tom Scott. This is one of the most unusual and interest- ing numbers to be written for un- accompanied choir with narrator. festivals. Mr. Ilertz holds music degrees from the University of Illinois, North~vest University, and is now finishing his PhD in Music Education at New York University. Accompanists for the choir are Robert Dick, Soap Lake, and Joanne Anderson, Aberdeen. FOURTH OF JULY COMMITTEE TO MEET TUES., MAR. 3 A meeting of all those in. terested in a Fourth of July celebration this year will be held at the ~ity Hall on Tuvs- day night, March 3. The Am- erican Legion Post is consider- ing sponsoring the celebration this year. The meeting will start at $ p.m. O So.uire Creek Park Timber Disappearing Many attempts to save speci. men stands of timber in the Puget Sound region, so that fu- ture generations may have a chance to see what was the glory of the Washington Forests, have met with failure through one cause or another. As the timber grows scarce the standing t~ees become more val- uable, and reasons for harvest- ing are found. Twenty-five years ago the cit- izens of Arlington and Darring- ton raised cash to purchase a small tract of timber on Squire creek, on the Arlington-Darring- ton road, the dedication cere- mony occurred on Sunday, May 6, 1928, when groups from the two communities and the valley gathered for a picnic at the spot, and built camping sites and shelters, and turned the tract over to Snohomish county to be maintained forever as a public park. Squire creek is one of the county's finest streams, it runs clear as crystal over a gravel bed, and through the" park it winds its way among tall, straight trunks of fir. Camp sites have been developed along the stream and a trail follows its bank, from which one may look down into the deep pools, or raise his eyes and looking through the trees see the snow- topped peak of White Horse mountain nearby. But the glory of the forest is disappearing• The county has not taken too seriously its steward- ~hip, and it is apgarently only i through the watchful eye of ~nearby residents that the timber has been kept. Excuses to widen the road through the timber have been found, but so far success- fully fought. Then came the Seattle City Light, with its right to condemn for~ right-of-way. Last year, to construct a new line, a slice of timber had to be sold. For this the county received $1,200, but Squire creek park got not a cent of .this money--it went into the c~)unty's general expense fund. Because of the opening caused by City Light's logging, quite' a few trees were blown down in this winter's wind storm, and to salvage this a contract was let for logging the blowdowns. Again the county received over a thousand dollars, again it vent into the county's general iund. In the logging process, ap- parently not sufficient stumpage I Mrs. Dale Huber, who has ac- cepted appointment as captain of tl~e Red Cross drive organization announces the appointment of her assistants, who will aid in the drive which will get under way on March 1st. It is pointed out that the Red Cross has a tremendous program, not only in aid to the military i services, but also in foreign and domestic disaster relief• Last year the Red Cross served in 289 domestic disaster opera- tions, gave emergency relief and long-term assistance to 32,01111. families, in addition to the 27,- 000 families aided in the big Kansas. Missiouri- Oklahoma-n- linois floods of the summer of 1951. It spent a total of $19,I~,- 500 for relief, rehabilitation and disaster preparedness. The Red Cross, besides its aster relief, its far-flung ope~ ations with the armed serviee~ and service to service men's fam-~ ilies, etc., is responsible for fur- nishing blood to the sick and in- jured in our hospitals at home, and on the battle front .....

O Large Crowd Sees Wrestling Matches A capacity crowd of enthusias- tic wrestling fans witnessed the bouts at the High School gym- nasium Wednesday night, when they saw their favorite Frank Stojack win his match in forty minutes from Honest John Cre- toria. In the first bout Hannah and Friddell wrestled to a draw, and Dick Hay~ ~f the University. of Washington took two successive falls from Gee. Drake. The program started off with a flag salute led hy three Cub Scouts in uniform, in the ring. Tony Bjorn, Bobble Buell and Johnny Knutsen.
