According to the Marysville Police report of the affair, both men had been in the store on Saturday, May 13, it was learned after their arrest Monday. Around 2:30 p.m. on Monday the pair, Charles Wayne McCune of Artesia, California and David Allen Jenkins of Norfolk, Nebraska returned to the stor,c. As Jenkins "shopped" in the store, McCune warned Don Foxe, co-owner, that they were planning a rob- bery and that his companion was "wanted by police." Marysville police were summoned but the pair had left the store before they arrived. Summoned again to the store at 3:40 p.m., of- ficers found McCune in the store and Jenkins outside, reading a book in the back seat of an automobile that proved to have been stolen from a used car lot in Whittier, California on Friday, May 5. Officers learned the men had been in the store on the 13th, according to Herman Broeker, police chief, to "look it over," with the idea that McClune would hide inside the store until it closed and later admit Jenkins. Both men were placed in custody in Marysville City Jail. Marysville School Board of Directors honored ten retiring employees from the Marysville School District at the May 15 regular board meeting held in the Tulalip Elementary School. Those honored were, August Buse, Mildred Kantola, Cecile ttendricks, Effie: Atkins, Winnie Kukull, Olive Becker, Elizabeth Stuestall, Elmer Bick, Ralph Olson, and Carl Schwankle.

Concerning extra curricular activities for 1972- 73 school year Dr. Richard Voege, superintendent, reported that the district will have insufficient funds available for continuing the current program. He said the state law allows tax money to pay only the salary costs for extra curricular activities. All other costs (equipment, referees, first aid supplies, etc.) must be paid by the student body accounts. By school board action on April 3, extra curricular activities were cut by 65 percent in the 1972-73 budget, which left $40,000 which is to be used for the basic curriculum for next year. The following programs will be continued for next year: 1. Elementary Safety Patrol. 2. intramurals, band, vocal, drama, student store at the middle schools; 3. at the high schools - varsity football (4 coaches) varsity basketball, varsity baseball, wrestling, and track -- all with two coaches. Girls sport" program, band, vocal, swimming, drama, drill team. It was also announced that the school district and district staff will be totally responsible for the management and instruction of extra curricular ac- tivities. The student councils at both Pilchuck and Marysville high schools have selected the year books and cheer leader staff to be totally paid from student body funds next year, and this includes salary costs. ATHLETICS The school board also has authorized formation of a joint Pilchuck High School and Marysville High School committee to set guidelines and supervise any donations given by the public to sup- port extra curricular ac- tivity programs. The board stipulated that these funds must go into a common district athletic fund and that competitive athletic programs must be the same at both high schools. Those serving on the Marysville-Pilchuck Athletic Fund committee are Doug Howell (Pilchuck) and Craig Harrison (Marysville) student council presidents; parent representatives are Jack Hammond and Jim Gregory; faculty representatives-- Jerry Parrish and Ward Sayles; OUSln, A panel of citizens met with a group of about 100 senior citizens on Wednesday, May 11, in the MHS cafetorium. The panel consisted of Marysville city ad- ministrator William Gear; Federal Finance representative John Barber; Snohomish County Housing Authority representative. Diane Goodwin; apartment owners representative Dan Festa; realtor Bill Hanby; and businessmen Charles Holmes, William Brashler, and Gene Olmstead. Diane Gondwin explained the process for applying for elderly housing units, stating that first the city council must approve the ap- plication for low cost housing for the elderly. Units would then be built on the basis of community needs and funds available to HUD. After qualifying the high rise apartment would be built by local contractors who would bid on the job. When com- pleted the units would be rented to those on the waiting list. Ranges, refrigerators, draperies and rugs would be furnished. Rents paid by the occupants would be 25 percent of their income with HUD paying the remaining 75 percent. Each area has its own income limit. All utilities are in- eluded in the rent. The difference in housing leased by the Housing Authority and that built by private individuals with Federal Funding is that private individuals pay all taxes while the leased housing pays 10 lercent of the rent in lieu of taxes. At present a 24 unit privately owned elderly housing administrative represen- tatives, Jerry Mills and David Rich. The guidelines set by this committee state that the cost of each extra curricular activity was determined by the committee. All donations for a particular sport must be on hand before the specific program is offered. These costs would include the salaries of coaches and costs for equipment and officials. Donors may specify the sport for which their donation is to be applied. Deadline date for donations - - Fall sports, Sept. 1, 1972; Winter sports, Nov. 1, 1972; Spring sports, March 1, 1973. Donors may give their donations to Jerry Mills at Pilchuck or to David Rich at Mary6ville High Schoo. Bookkeeping and clerical responsibilities have been assigned to Marysville High School. Further questions concerning donations may be directed to any. member of the Athletic Fund com- mittee. building is being constructed in Marysville. Panel member Dan Festa explained that he feels that people should be subsidized, not programs. The city has many empty ppartments and if the people who were eligible were subsidized they could live where they chose, he commented. HUD Finance represen- tative John Barber spoke on funding assistance. In a survey of the Mary ille area he found that there was an 18 percent vacancy rate in apartments and 7 percent in individual housing. He stated that HUD would not issue funds for housing in an area until vacancy rates are down to normal. A question from the floor on repossessed "235" homes and their use for elderly housing was answered by Barber who said that the size, arrangement and location of "235" houses were not suitable for elderly housing. These houses were to be repaired and resold to private individuals who qualified them. A number of comments and questions came from the floor. Residents from Baker Heights, an apartment house in Everett for the elderly, owned and operated by the Housing Authority, ex- pressed their satisfaction with the plan. There is a waiting list. Diane Goodwin concluded that it was the intention of the Housing Authority to provide safe, convenient living quarters for our elderly citizens. BRIDES, brides, brides.
