Council acts on fees for water mains The Arlington City Council Monday evening took prelim- inary action toward instituting a charge of $100 for city water main usage plus an ad- ditional $150 fee for hook-up of each unit in housing devel- opments here. The decision was judged equitable following a report on a special meeting between the council's water/ sewer committee and new de- velopers in Arlington. The proposal will not be formally adopted until it is approved through a resolution. Presented to the council was the Arlington Police Report for April, which showed there was estimated vehicle damage of $3,520 and estimated prop- erty damage of $5,000 during the month. S v e n t y-seven warnings w e r e issued; 60 investigations of complaints; 27 parking citations; 31 as- sists to other departments and 30 assists to the public. Eleven were booked on various charges and there were 11 juvenile arrests. There were 12 accidents and six fire or ambulance and traffic assists. Councilmen approved the in- stallation of a street light at the east end of Halter St. and approved the Cascade Tractor Company's bid on a tractor, blade and flail mower for use at Arlington Airport. Total of the bid was $5488.76 plus $182.88 for a blade with skid shoes. This will be paid by the Airport Commission. Approved was the appoint- ment of Lee Johnson&Assoc- iates as Arlington city engi- neers at a fiat fee of $50 per month for advisory services. Councilmen also agreed to consult the King County San- itation Engineer with regard to fair charges for a coopera- tive garbage program between Arlington and Marysvflle. The council's garbage committee met with Marysville repre- sentatives last week but failed to determine charges both cities felt were reasonable. The council adopted a reso- lution establishing their re- sistance to the efforts of the state to permit oil exploration and drilling in and about the waters of Puget Sound. They also voiced intentions to protect the city's interest in water and sewer lines now established on property on Minor St. near the intersection of Cox and Hailer Sts. The highway department has an- nounced intentions to extend a paved roadway through this land. $1700 loss in tavern burglary Approximately $700, mostly in cash, was taken from a safe at the Olympic Tavern, 431 N. Olympic Ave., inn burglary early Sunday morning. The loss was discovered by the tavern's owner, Daniel Barrel, 420 S. Cobb, when he opened the business at 8:45 a.m. Monday. In investlgafing the incident, Arlington police could find no signs of forced entry and there was no damage to the safe. Mrs. Walter Hass, Route 3, Arlington, told police she no- ticed the back door ajar when she cleaned the tavern at 7 p.m. Sunday. She said at that time she also found the safe's money drawer and some cigar boxes on the floor. However, she stated she did not consider this exceptional and did not realize that money had been removed from the safe. Since the tavern was no! open Sunday afternoon, police feel, the burglary must have occurred sam e time after closing early Sunday morning. They are continuing investi. gallon of the case. AN OLD RULE of thumb for pricing big pleasure boate was to figure $1,000 per foot of length. Boat manufacturers now say it is more accurate to figure total cost as ~2 per . pound.

Last week approximately 30 acres of corn was planted there by Larry Pickett, an ArilngtonHigh School FFA member. Pickett, center above, was assisted in the preliminary planting by Lee Schiller, left, and AHS Agricultural Instructor Keith Sarkisian, right.When har- vested, the silage corn will be sold to dairy farmers. Teacher services available Teacher listtngservices will be available to all schools in Intermediate District 109, ac- cording to a unanimous de- cision by the district's board of directors this week. This means that the Intermediate district will provide teacher placement s e r v i c e s on an equal basis, regardless of WEA sanctions on any specific districts. Dorothy Bennett, superin- tendent of Intermediate Dis- trict 109, stated that since teacher placement had become a "buyer's marketW and there were so many applicants for the relatively few teaching jobs now open, her staff had considered dropping the co- operative t e a c h e r listing service. However, she said, the staff has now decided to continue the service as it has for years pest. Approving on the motion to continue placement services in the intermediate district were Dr. Robert E. Wilcox of Monroe, Orville J. Coombs of Snohomtsh, Ray Scheldt of Ev- erett, Canard Brade of Marys- ville, Rudolph Erickson of Clinton, Dr. Richard L. Hawk of Edmonds and Joseph P. Mathews Jr. of Arlington. Mathews stated Tuesday, "My interest in the matter was primarily to determine whether the intermediate board was or was not to be- come involved in 'rIabor-tYpeB activities and consequent job or economic pressure activ- ities of local school districts such as those now current in Arlington and which, accord- ing to one of the intermediate board member#, are expected shortly In a nearby district.'~ ZIP codes needed on all mail The Post Office Department has for some time been work- ing on methods for moderniza- tion and increased efficiency to cope with theever-increas- ing volume of mail which must be processed each day. The public's cooperation is a b- solutely necessary if one of these methods is to succeed. The easiest way an individual can help is through 100 per cent use of ZIP codes on everything sent through the mail service. ZIP code in- creases the speed, accuracy and quality of all mail serv- ice. Local post Office em- ployees ask assistance intheir campaign for better mail service. ENJOY summer heat and warm up for wlnterl SAFE BURGLARIZED - Police Chief Tom Gobin is shown checking for clues which might lead him to burg- lars who took an estimated $1,700 from a safe inside the Olympic Tavern:. 431Olympic Ave., earlySunday morning. The theft was dlscovered by Daniel Barrel, the tavern owner, when he opened the business at 8:45 a.m. Monday. iiii~ Expenses will be subtracted from the gross returns. Larry will then get 60~ of the remaining revenue and the local FFA Chapter will get 40%. There are about 16 youths involved in FFA projects on property purchased by this school district last year for the primary purpose of constructing a new school. Construction of the school would not have deterred the FFA projects, however, since these are being conducted in the lowland areas and the proposed school would have been built on the highlands. Benefit Saturday to aid critically ill resident How many families are in fInancial circumstances that allow for medical expenses totaling almost $I0,000 in less than a year? How many men in this area could support a family of four and still cover such large unexpected medical expenses? There are few who could withstand such an eco- nomic crisis. Yet this is the situation faced today by the Carl Nelsons of Grandview. A box social and dance to benefit the Nelsons has been scheduled Saturday, June 6, at the Grandview Community Hall five miles east of Bryant. The event will feature live music by The Rhythm Wrang- lers and those attending are invited to dress in western attire. Music for dancIng will begin at 9 p.m., following the box social at 8:30 p.m. A lucky door prize winner will take home a new power lawn- mower. All revenue from the $5 per couple donations will go toward defraying medical expenses of Mrs. (Marge) Nel- son, who needs consistent treatment on a kidney machine to prolong her life. Mrs. Nelson required con- stant hospitalization in Uni- versity Hospital, Seattle, from last fall until January of this year, at which time she re- turned home only to have a relapse and return to the hos- pital. In March, she developed perRonitis which further com- plicated her treatments. Presently, Mrs. Nelson un- dergees treatment for ten hours three nights a week on a kidney machine the family has rented from University Hospital at a cost of $4000 per year. In addition to this, she must have special exam- inatlons a n d medication at clinics in Seattle once every two weeks. She has developed multiple myloma, which is comparatively rare but is in many ways comparable to leu- Immia. R is mandatory for her to continue these treat- ments for the remainder of her life unless a cure is discovered for the condition from which she suffers. To further complicate the Nelsons' flnaoclal burdens, Carl Nelson was recently laid off the construction job on which he was worhing. A res- ident of this area for more than 45 years, he is an~r- iesced carpenter as wallasan able construction worker. He attended schools in Arlington, is a veteran of World War II and a member of the American Legion. The Nelsons havetwodaugh- ters, Karel and Bettte Kay, at home, as well as ason, Chris, 20, who is now serving with the Armed Forces in Vietnam., The public is urged to at- 'tend the. benefit planned for Mrs. NelsonSaturday evening. Tickets may be purchased in most downtown stores in- cluding The TIMES and will also be sold at the door/ To r ea c h the Grundview Community Hall, drive down the Grandview Road to Four Corners, turn right and con- tinue for about one-half mile.

Search for brothers Six units of the Snohomish County Volunteer Search and Rescue Unit, assisted by the U.S. Navy Rescue crew from Jim Creek and Undersheriff Don V. Fisher, searched all Monday night in the mountains of Eastern Snohomish County for Ray Coleman, 18, and Tom Coleman, 21, The two youths from Wichita, Kans. had been visiting their grandparents, Mr. and Mrs. Joe K. Neal at Sultan. They left Monday afternoon for a hike, without proper overnight gear or climbing footwear.

The boys walked out Tuesday before noon, safe and sound. "Arlington" postmark to be dropped A recent change in the mall doposR drops in the Arlington Post Office heralds a new method of handling out-going mail. Effective June 20, all letters mailed in Arlington will be sent to Everett for cancella- tion, with the exception of local delivery letters which have been placed in the Ar- lingten deposit drop in the post office lobby. One of the mail drops is labeled "OUT OF TOWN" while the other drop is designated "ARLING- ton." Only letters for Arling- ton or Oso should be placed in the latter mail slot. Vol- ume mailing by business firms will still be accepted by personnel at the postoffice service center. This change in handling out. going mail is scheduled for all areas north of Everett in order to increase efficiency through mechanization. A Mark H racer-canceller ma- chine is being installed in the Everett Post Office. This machine, which can process 20,000 letters per hour, will mechanically face and cancel all letter mail. Distribution to ZIP code addresses, how- ever, will still he done by hand. The postmarkon letters can- celled in Everett very likely will read "U.S. Postal Serv- ice." The only way to idantlfy a letter as originating in Ar- lington will be in the return address of the mailer. IN THE Puget Sound area, an estimated 34 percent ofthe population engages in some form of recreational beating, as compared with a national average of 20 percent.
