May 15, 1972 – PROUDLY WE SALUTE…

Marine Lance Corporal Terry W. Stevens, son of Mr. and Mrs. Blaine Stevens, Rt. 1, Sandpoint, has returned to Camp Lejeune after guerilla and anti-guerilla training on the Caribbean islands of Vieques and Culebra with Lejeune’s Sixth Marine Regiment.

Two Army servicemen from Sandpoint completed an eight-week wheel vehicle mechanic course at the Army Training Center, Infantry, Fort Ord. Calif. They are Pvts. Joseph M. Wilkinson, son of Mrs. Wanda C. Robinson, 1111 Lake, and Brandon R. Buck, whose parents are Mr. and Mrs. Gerald E. Buck, 314 Euclid.



Ruth Sherwood, Rt. 2, Sandpoint, caught a 19 lb. 5 oz. Kamloops that won 3rd place in K & K competition for largest fish. She hooked the fish while trolling mid-lake from the islands south of Hope and weighed the Kamloops in at Frank Murphy’s Hope Lounge & Cafe.



Chris Dawson, SHS senior, set a school record in the high jump at the Inland Empire League track meet in Moscow. Dawson cleared 6-2 to add 1/2 inch to the old mark set by Larry Elliot in 1966 in the same meet.



The Sandpoint Saddle Club is again sponsoring free English riding lessons at the W.C. Racicot residence on North Boyer. Miss Veldonna Osborn and Mrs. Ardis Racicot will be instructors for the course. This is the third year they have given the free lessons.

Mrs. J.B. Page was hostess to 40 ladies at a 1 p.m. bridge-luncheon Tuesday. The rooms of the Page home on N. Second avenue were prettily decorated, the color scheme being worked out in yellow and white with bouquets of daffodils in conspicuous places. Mrs. I. Weil won first prize at bridge and Mrs. D.R. Anselm won second. Mrs. Page gives another one o'clock luncheon to an equal number of ladies on Saturday.



Tuesday was “kid day” for the high school seniors and the class appeared in the raiment of kindergarten and early grade school days. Curls, bright hair-ribbons and rompers featured the girls’ side of the program and the boys appeared wearing ribbon bow ties, some of them in knee trousers and other “kid” garb.

James Campbell of Hope received an assay from the East Helena smelter Wednesday showing from the Auxer mine 3.84 ounces in gold.



The Misses Florence Anderson and Esther Pearson Saturday evening entertained 25 friends at a bridge-dinner at the home of Miss Pearson’s sister, Mrs. John A. Humbird. They were assisted by Mrs. Humbird and Mrs. J.H. Pennington. Diminutive May poles graced the tables, ribbons running to place cards at the plates and to small violet bouquets at the table corners.
