Saturday, April 18, was the big day for the 4-H boys and girls of Mason County. The demonstrations contest was from 9-12 at the Angle Building. Mr. and Mrs. Pettitt were so pleased with the boys and girls they have worked with all year. The Psychedelic-Soda-Pops demonstrated wood carving technique and four boys who demonstrated and won blue ribbons are Jim Cochran, Roger Ewart, Brian Hardie and Vincent Pettitt. The Sew-an so's had food as their project this year, and Peri Pettitt, Val VanHorn, Kelly Harris, Becky Sayan, Cathy Ruddell, Debbie Hardie, Terri Hardie and Sandy Denny all won blue ribbons. Stacie Petraitis won a red ribbon. While the girls were giving the food demonstrations the boys sat in the hall waiting for samples and were rewarded with all kinds of food from a delicious taco salad, ham rollups, fresh bread, dump cake, fruit salad and other goodies. (I was in line too.) Each year I am amazed at what the children can do. An 1 l-year-old girl decorated a clown cake that was really darling. It was an interesting, educational and delicious day. "Bandit," a black and white calf, arrived sometime Friday night at the Hardie Farm. With food prices so high all those who have a little land are taking a new look at their If your time is needed in other places -- Give us a call, you'll see our smiling faces.

(It was called Theta Sigma Phi when I was initiated at the University of Washington but the name was changed this past year.) Speaker this year was Lisa Hobbs whose first book on China after a visit in 1965 was a best seller and author of "China, A Second Look," written after a return visit in 1971. I found her report of the changes in college education which she observed during her second trip of interest. The faculty and student body had been cut by more than half since her previous visit. The older professors who had attended college in the United States or other western countries were no longer on the faculty. Teaching classes were young people with only a year or two of college. "We don't have time to allow our students to sit four or six years in classrooms learning to become doctors or professors," said a supporter of the new policy. Evidently a student receives very extensive training in college for a year. Then begins practising his profession, taking night courses on the side to continue his training. In China one does not enter college directly from high school. 1 didn't take notes during her speech, but 1 think Mrs. Hobbs said a student is required to work as a laborer for three years before applying for entrance to college so that he will understand more fully what is involved in keeping people fed and clothed. One big change in attitude towards the United States was evident during her second visit, she said. During her first visit she had been impressed with how healthy, happy and well-cared for the children appeared. But they sang songs or automatically recited phrases terminating a conversation which were directed against the United States government. This was at a time when the United States was becoming engaged more and more in the Vietnam War. During this last trip, however, she noted very few signs that the United States was regarded as THE enemy, an impression so prominent in 1965. The signs were more subtle but Russia had become the country to be feared and watched. Her comment at the conclusion of her talk is worth thinking about and some of my readers might find it of interest. She had told of how she had expected the Chinese people to be downtrodden, unhappy, starving masses when she first went there but had found them to be the opposite. The healthy, well-cared for and obviously much-h)ved children had impressed her the most. They still impressed her during her second visit. She noted that of the 800 million people in China today, 500 million are age 20 or under. She said there appears to be no drug or alcohol problem among the youth, that they are strong, heahhy and well-disciplined, that they love their country with an intense loyalty. She wondered if in the near future, a confrontation between China and the United States should occur, how today's American youth would fare against such strong, disciplined patriotic young inen. The implication was there that today's young Americans, with so many using alcohol or drugs, with so many showing noticeable lack of old-fashioned patriotism, might come out second best. Every year at Matrix Table 1 am awed overwhelmingly by the accomplishments of some of the recipients of the special awards. All of the guests are women of achievement but each year eight or nine are singled out for special recognition. It is usually the one award presented to the outstanding woman at either the University of Washington or Seattle University who makes me wonder what 1 did with all the free time I must have had when 1 went to the university. She always seems to be president of three or four groups, spends hours doing volunteer work for some worthwhile organization, holds down a part-time job, has maintained at least a 3.8 grade point through four years of college and has still found time to acquire a fiance. This year there was no "Wheel of Wheels" award for a college woman because the nomination from the college chapters of Women in Communication was duplicated by nomination for the same young woman by the alumni group. So she was honored as a "woman of achievement" rather than as a "wheel of wheels." When I watched the Olympic games on TV last summer, like many Northwesterners, I was interested in particular in the Colellas, Rick and Lynn, because they were local kids from the University of Washington. I watched much of the TV coverage at my sister's summer place on Mason Lake and she knew Mrs. Collella and had heard from her some of the ordeals of training for Olympic competition so this made them of special interest, too. Knowing how much time must be spent on any sport to become good enough to enter world competition, I was impressed that a local girl had had enough determination and discipline to reach the (Please turn to page two.) JIM LANE, (left) representing the Boy Scouts at the special program honoring the departing Wendell Harder family, thanked the pastor of Belfair Community Baptist Church on behalf of local Boy Scouts. Also speaking at last Sunday's farewell program held at the church were three boys from Mission Creek Youth Camp. With Jim, left to right, in picture above are Mark Poff of MCYC, the Reverend Harder, Kent Daniels, MCYC, and Thomas Holmes MCYC. Alcoholics Anonymous starts Belfair group Those who have a problem with alcohol, or who may be interested in seeking help for a relative or friend, are invited to join in the formation of a local group of Alcoholics Anonymous in the Belfair area. The group will meet in the office of Christ Lutheran Church in Bclfair, just south of the tavern, at 8 p.m. on Saturday evenings. Last Saturday was the first meeting. Alcoholics Anonymous is a fellowship of men and women who share their experience, strenl~th and hope with each other in order to solve their common problem and to help others recover from alcoholism. The only requirement for membership is a desire to stop drinking. There are no dues or fees and AA is not allied with any other organization. The primary purpose of its members is to stay sober and to help other alcoholics achieve sobriety. Since the fellowship was founded in 1935, membership has grown to more than 426,000 persons in more than 15,000 local groups throughout the world. Until a Belfair phone number is available for persons to call for help or information, persons wishing to contact AA may call ES7-0051. ART DEADLINE CORRECTION The deadline for local artists to turn in artwork for consideration in the competition to choose pictures for the 1974 North Mason Friends of the Library art calendar is May 15, not May 5 as reported in a previous issue of the Herald Entries may be left at the Huckleberry Herald office in Belfair. Further information may be had by calling CR5-2420. ii~iiii A RECEPTION WAS HELD at Belfair Community Baptist Church last Sunday afternoon to offer the community a chance to say farewell to the Reverend Wendell Harder and his family. Above Wanda Meeks (left) and Grace Hunt (right) chat with Faye Harder, wife of the pastor. The Harders will be moving to American Falls, Idaho, where the pastor will assume new duties. Paul Conner to guests at meeting tonight State Representative Paul H. Conner, president of the Clallam County Historical Society, will bring a delegation of his members to meet with the Mason County Historical Society May 3 at Belfair Community Baptist Church. Time has been set forward to 7 p.m. to allow the visitors an early start home. The public is invited to attend. "Jimmy-Come-Lately," the outstanding historical book on pioneer days in Clallam County will be described and reviewed by the visiting delegation, announces Mrs. Irene Davis, secretary of the Mason County group. The new book was recently printed in Port Orchard. It is the- first comprehensive history of Clallam County. It was the result of a successful group effort patterned after the recent book published by the Jefferson County Historical Society, "With Pride in Heritage." This program was originally scheduled for December 7 but was snowed out. Copies of the book will be available.
