A community newspaper for Midland, Parkland, Brookdale, and Spanaway. family

Published every Thursday by Beard Printing Co., P. 0. Box 797, Parkland, Washington. Telephone GRanite 7100. Entered as second-class matter October 3, 1945, at the post office at Parkland, Washington, under the Act of March 3, 1879. SUBSCRIPTION RATES, By Mail: One year, $1..'iO; six months, $1.00

To Our Subscribers Following four weeks during which the Prairie Pointer was not published (the last previous issue was that of July 21) your community newspaper reappears this week, back on its regular schedule awaiting you in your mail box each Thursday. During the past four weeks, a number of changes Juve taken place, including change of ownership of the publishing company for the Prairie Pointer. However, nearly all changes have to do with administration of the company and with production. As far as your newspaper is concerned, we do not think you will notice any difference. Editorial policies and standards remain the same. We want to thank our subscribers for standing by while we were getting straightened out. Your subscriptions will be extended to cover the missed period. We regret that, until very recently, we were unable to give definite information to the many of our subscribers who called and that sti lJ less were we able to reply to the many who wrote. \Ve bope they will accept this statement as their answer. -o~~~~·~~~~

Late, But .. ~. During the four weeks this newspaper h:is been out of publication, a number of events important in the scheme of our communities have taken place-too many for any atrempt on our part to "catch up." However, some of these occurrences should, by no means, be let go by without comment even if belated. First off, this newspaper speaks best wishes to Jack Quill and congratulates the community of Parkland upon his confirmation as postmaster by the United States Senare recently. During his period as acting postmaster, Jack Quill demonstrated his determination to see that Parkland has the very best postal service. He has shown his deep personal interest in the welfare of the community and his intense desire to give greatly of his own time and efforts and of the services of his office to assist with community and individual problems. The generally high regard in which Jack Quill is held it tes,tificd by the posts of leadership to which he has been raised in the local American Legion post and Kiwanis club. We look confidently to ;:i constantly expanding and better serving post office here under Jack Quill's administration.

LEGION BASEBALL Had a July 28 issnc of the Prairie Pointer appeared, it would have carried J front page picture of the district championship Junior Baseball team sponsored by Parkland Post 228, American Legion. At that time the team was battling other district champion squads of the state at Seattle, proving itself the No. 3 team of the state. . As during the district season, the club overcame long odds to reach the state semi-finals. Bad luck in the draw sent the Parkland team against the eventual champion Bremerton squad in the first round. From then on, the local team had to fight all the way with its back to the wall, knowing that a slip at any time which would bring one more defeat would mean elimination from the tourney. Reaching the semi-finals proved the team's fighting spirit, as it had previously been proved when the team which was given only the slightest chance at the beginning of the season battled to the district championship then defended its title in an unprecedented special playoff brought about by ineligibility of anotber team in the league. . Parkland is very proud of and owes thanks to: Co;ich Harvey May; players, Ron Storaasli, Larry Robinson, Bob Killion, Dick Montgomery, Tom Swindland, Jim Brigham, Lloyd Alton, Bob Brown. Ron Chilton, Ron May, Don May, Billy Campbell, Ed Patrone, Dick Saboto, Dick Wallace: mascot, Wayne Storaasli; manager, F. L. Berry and the sponsoring Parkland Post. ~~~~~~~-o

1. When someone's ditc:hadigger bites a chunk out of a long distance cable - and it happens now and then - repairmen get on the job fast to fix it. Back at a test center, sensitive instruments located the break and splicers hit the road. Almost simultaneously, many calls were routed through other dries to get them through with as little delay as possible.

2. Service restored ... the hundreds of tiny wires have been spliced temporarily and, even as the workmen stow their tools, calls are speeding through the cable. Later it will be permanently spliced without interrupting service. Such fast repairs are possible by planning ahead for emergencies, so trained people can be quickly pulled from other jobs.

3, Keeping service reliable makes your telephone a more valuable servant-just as keeping rates low as oossible makes service a haro-'1in today. A loc~t call still costs j~st a-fe~ p~~1~;;;~ ... and calls to the East Coast at day station !'ates only $2.50 plus Federal tax.
