Lewis Monroe Machine NEW VIKING World's Only Non-Oiling Machine Viking 2709 W, Everett MIRRORS, SHOWER DOORS, SCREENS, INSULATED GLASS, STORM WINDOWS & ALUMINUM WINDOWS, ain By Erie Means Contributing Bearcat Sports Reporter The Monroe High School track, baseball, and golf teams, each coming off strong performances last week, begin prep- arations this week for their respective post-season tourna- ments. The golf team will go into the District Tournament as the NWAA league champions. They achieved that honor by defeating league rivals Arlington and Stanwood every time they have met. Lake Stevens, the other member of the NWAA, does not field a golf team. Pete Vanderweyst and Tom Frisinger each hurled two-hitters as the Bearcat baseballers swept a double- header from Arlington, 9-2 and 4-1, Friday, May 6. However, only the first triumph counts in the NWAA standings; the other is considered a non-league win. Singles by Jeff Larson, Ernie Smith, Joe Dickinson, and a Dan Gilbert home run provided Vanderweyst's support in the opener. The victory pushed Monroe into sole possession of second place in the NWAA, a scant half-game behind league leader Lake Stevens. The Cats can lock up a spot in the District Tournament by defeating Stanwood this week. The Monroe men's track team tuned up for this week's divisional preliminaries by annihilating an undermanned Stanwood team, 103-38, Thursday, May 5. Bearcat tracksters garnered 13 of the 16 events en route to setting season highs in total points scored and margin of victory. After 14 years in the saddle as a top winning jockey, Larry Pierce, a long-time favorite at Longacres, has retired to become a trainer. For many riders this action is a wrench at the heart strings but Larry has made the change with no visible outward changes. We asked him if he would miss riding and he commented, "I know that I will miss riding when the races start but right now I'm comfortable with my new work and my new weight." He continued, "After I quit riding I went up to 14S pounds in the matter of a week or ten days." During his riding days he pointed out, "I always ate breakfast and dinner. It was a matter of preserving my health." At the end of his riding career many thought making the proper weight was his main problem but he quickly said, "Making weight was not the problem physcially as it was menatlly. Physically I could have ridden another four or five years but at times the weight problem made me depressed mentally and I just decided that for my family and its future I would quit riding and do something else.:' Larry began riding competitively at Pheonix in 1963 and early in that racing season broke his maiden and went on from there to become one of the top jockeys on the West Coast. He was born in Clebit, Oklahoma, just a few long furlongs from the birthplace of the late Steve O'Donnell. There were eight children, five boys and three girls, in the family. At an early age they moved to Northern California and Larry, with the rest of the family, was raised there. He has almost 1,200 career wins as a rider and his winning mounts have won almost three and a quarter million dollars. On May 20, 1973 he rode seven winners in one day at Longacres on a ten-race card which equalled a North American riding record. He is co-holder of the alltime single season riding championship at Longacres with 121 wins. Larry and his wife Terri havql,two children, a boy ten and a girl seven. Terri helps Larry" at the barn and between household duties and work at the track she watches care- fully over her brood mare which is due to foal in late May. We are sure Larry's head will be with his training and its problems but he will be rememberingthe exciting moments of a stretch drive aboard a winningThoroughbred. Sunday, May 15: William E. Boeing Stakes for three-year old colts and geldings bred in Washington at five and a half furlongs for $10,000 added.

In the second double play of the week, shortstop Carmen Housman initiated the action by flipping a groundball to second base, where Shannon Meeds relayed it to Debbie Parsons at first. If there is a rumor in the air about you, you'd better treat it as you would a wasp; either ignore it or kill it with the first blow. Anything else will just stir it up. Good advice in raising children is to be consistent. How can a parent be consistent when children never do the same thing twice. ii i i i i iii Shop as carefully for second-car insurance as # you would for a second car. Indications show 1976 will be a record year for second-car pur- chases. It'll be a big year for sec- fond-car policies, too. And some companies will give you a discount an the second auto you in- ~re wi~ them. SAFECO, however, has an even better deal for multiple-car policyholders. Be- cause SAFECO~ will give you up[ to a 15% discount; on both autos--' the first and the;" second. The pre-t mium rates are3 very competitive. And you get fast,t trair claim service to boot.. And that's just one more. reason why you can almost always save with SAFECO. The lunch menu for Monroe School District No. 103 for the week of May 16-20 has been established.
