The camp has offered sum- mer camping for children of poorer families. If they could pay, they did; if not they were accommodated anyway, Clarke bemg able to "wangle" susten- ance through donations and gifts from sympathetic friends. The Clarke dream has been to provided a complete home Ior 64 children, and this dream is slow- ly taking shape. For the past five years, through the efforts of Clarke, his older boys, and one day's donated time by members of the carpenters union, a group of buildings has taken shape. They are one-story, rustic type. The dormitories are in separate buildings and flank the main represented, building, which houses the any pictures of lounge and administration of- 10, 12 years fices. s "Pop" pointed to A long hallway leads down the say this one is center of each dormitory build- four children," ing, four rooms being on each side of the hallway.

Several Seattle hotels donated chairs, remnants of linoleum have been cut up into squares for floor covering. At the present time "Pop" is sending out letters asking for Jonations of beds. A printed form asks "Would you please like to supply a bed by filling in the attached blank?" The blank is addressed to the Camp Lewis ]'ent & Awning Co., 1107 First Ave., Seattle, and says "Enclosed please find my check for $--- for iron bed for Lake Ki Children's Foster Home, R. 1, Arlington, Wash." To date "Pop" has received sixteen beds. He needs 64. A Seattle store has donated remnants of curtain material, and "Pop" displayed a bed cover which a neighbor lady made of some of the material, and has agreed to make similar covers ior all the beds. As we walked through the buildings we noted tables, chairs, davenports, refrigerators, all used,~but still usable, all of which had been donated by friends.

The first aid room was well stocked with first aid materials, and dozens of tooth brushes donated by drug stores. In the spaeious recreation hall high on the_,.walls stuffed birds stood on ~sinall shelves. Antlers and other trophies added to the decorations, and there were ledges filled with small figur- ines. We tried to figure the "angle," Or what is "Pop's" motive, but finally arrived at the conclusion that "Pop" is interested in child- ren. He could live quite com- fortably and without all this worry and hard work, if he were satisfied to do so. He receives a pension for his military service which is ample for his needs, but this, like everything else he re- ceives, goes into the project. VICTORIA Mrs. Lynn Danielson, correspondent.

Fifth and Olympic Arlington, Washington West Coast Tel. Makes Changes West Coast Telephone Com. pany is expanding its General Office staff and is making cer- tain changes in its organization to meet the challenge of its ex- tra-ordinary growth in ~the post- war years, according to an an- nouncement made by Ray Dal. ton, Vice-President and General Manager of-the Company. "The tremendous growth of our Company since 1945," said Dalton, "has made necessary an expansion of our General Office force. Since that time, the num- ber of employees, and the num- ber of telephones served, have more than doubled. We have added 57,000 telephones to the system during this period, and now serve 104,000 stations. In the same period of time, we have added over $13,000,000.00 of plant and equipment. In order to keep pace with this growth, we are making a number of organiza- tion changes and appointments, among which G. E. Krieger, As- sistant General Manager in charge of the Traffic and Corn- mercial Departments, is promot- ed to Vice-President in charge of personnel relations and promo- tional activities, and N. L. O'Don- nell, General Accountant, is pro- moted to the position of Assist- ant to General Manager; L. Gray Beck, Assistant General Manager in charge of plant operations, continues in that capacity but under the title of Chief Engineer. O Red Cross Highway First Aid Report Mr. Burke Barker, chairman of the local Red Cross Chapter, re- ported today that the Red Cross has been helping to reduce death on the highways by giving First Aid training to volunteers !who man over 2,100 highway first aid stations and more than 13,000 mobile first aid units and :first aid stations at fairs and other public gatherings. Last year, Mr. Barker stated, Red Cross volunteers in such units gave emergency care to 66,000 accident victims. Contribu- tions made by Red Cross sup- porters helps support this life- saving program. Locally, 56 volunteers who have been trained in First Aid procedures and who have be- come Red Cross First Aid in-: structors, have carried on an ac- tive program within the Snoho- mish and Island Counties Chap- ter. First Aid stations were named by these volunteer in- structors at fairs both in Snoho- mish and Island counties. Twenty-four First Aid instruc- tors have offered their services to their communities by becom- ing Mobile First Aid Units and carry marker plates on their cars and First Aid kits and other equipment so that they may render assistafice to accident victims in highway accidents. Last year Red Cross issued more than one million certifi. cates to men and women who completed First Aid training, thus preparing them to prevent accidents and to give emergency care to others and themselves. Mr. Barker urged that persons contribute generously to the 1953 Red Cross Fund Drive to further this and the many other services made possible through the Amer- ican Red Cross. 0 CEDARVALE- , GRANDVIEW Helen Sheppard, corr. ,Irs.
