Pierce County Commissioners Paul Newman, Harry Sprinker and Bob Gleason worked in cooperation with the Pierce County Health Department to start the dump. The waste land will be of no use to anyone for the next 50 years, Hatch estimates, but since the land was no good to begin with, no loss is involved. Commercial truckers also use the dump, ·but must pay a flat rate of $1.25 per true!,, for each load that is dumped.

He assured his friends sincerely that he could still reach greater heights and most of them agree, knowing his remarkable will to ac· complish his goal.


his is the age a pole vaulter should reach his peak. Looking into the future of this sport, the Reverend predicts that within a few years a super-vaulter will soar still higher, probably over the 17foot mark. To go still further, he has predicted that the supervaulter will be none other than his son, Bob Jr., who is 4 years old. I doubt if anyone will argue his views since his accomplish· ments have proven the experts wrong time and time again.
