Fishing Season Opens April 21 Olympia--When the summer fishing season opens in Wash- ington, April 21, an estimated 550,0C0 anglers will eagerly emerge and converge. Well over 8,000 bodies of water have been tabulated in the state, but the vast majority of fishermen who turn out for the first few weeks will be concentrated on less than 500 different lakes. Rafts and row boats, cruisers and canoes will be so thick on numerous lakes that it would seem a person might almost walk across the lake without wetting a foot. And beneath the surface the rainbow trout will pick and choose among an under- water forest of lines and lures. Summer season crowds of fishermen create real problems for the fishermen, the State Game Department, and especi- ally for the fish. A great majority of Washing- ton's anglers live in the Puget Sound country of western Wn., yet there is more fishing water on the east side of the state. Totalling all lakes and reser- voirs over 1 acre in size for western counties shows 174,734 acres. Twelve of the largest reservoirs alone in eastern Washington total over 200,000 acres. There is also a noticeable tendency for fish to grow bet- ter in eastern Washington's richer waters.

Division, Ar- lington, girl, April 14. Arlington, Wash., Thursday, April 18, 1963. Good work by neighbors and friends and a quick response by the Arlington Fire Department saved the Ivan Scheel home, Arlington Heights, from destruction last Thursday, April 11. When Mrs. Scheel heard the crackling in the attic of her home, she gave the alarm, neighbors aided in carrying out furniture and in applying a garden hose to the flames in the attic, keeping some control until the arrival of the fire department. Pictured are Norm Saylor at nozzle, Gordon Quilitz, top of ladder, Smitty Smith on ladder, and Bill Kahler in foreground. Damage was sustained to roof and attic, and water damage.

The rezoning would be to change from sin- gle family residential to multi- family residential. The proper. ty is presently owned by Messrs Howard Christianson a n d Lawrence Widmark, and is lo- cated on Gifford Ave. and First St. and those in Block 11 half face Washington Avenue and half Gifford Avenue. Mr. Roodzant, according to plans, would erect a 4-unit apartment house on three of four lots facing First Street, and a nine.unit apartment house on the four lots facing Washington Avenue. Mrs. Betty Olson, a nearby property owner, inquired as to parking facilities for the pro- posed project, to which Mr. Roodzant explained that he plans to provide one parking on April 17 to take definite action, since the zoning ordi. nance is undergoing revamp- ing. Mr.Roodzant is anxious that he be assured he can go ahead with his plans before he purchases the property involv- ed, thus the call for a meeting April 17. Vern Pickett, who owns pro- perty east of Stillaguamish avenue, at Maple, appeared be- fore the commission, stating he had received from the Plan- ning Commission the drawing and legal description of pro- posed street plan as affecting his property, and would be wil- ling to dedicate his portion of the proposed street if the City will vacate the dead.end alley that is in the original plat of LaVern Heights. Ite stated this alley can never go through be- cause of topography and has no turn around provided. He star. ed if this 25-ft. alley is vacated, it will increase the size of his lots to where he can afford to dedicate the 30 feet on the side for proposed street. He pointed out that with the pro, posed street, all lots had actress space for each unit. The Planning Commission gave consideration to the ap- plication for rezoning, but de- li~ Place, and accept the Pick- cided to hold a special meeting ett proposal. and alley was not needed.
