When asked if she had attended the class reunions, Hallie said, "I 'quituated' instead of graduated."

Hong Kong, according to Elsie, is crowded with refugees from Red China. The older apartments are overflowing including several generations with 120 feet allowed per family and only one bhthroom and kitchen per floor. The newer buildings have facilities for each apartment. Elsie noted that the way you could tell the new apartment houses from the middle-aged ones and the old ones is that they had no laundry hanging out of the windows. The rent was, as the cost of everything, astronomical. Leonard and Jean Manoske, former Monroe residents now living in Port Angeles, have been in town visiting relatives and friends. They stayed with Leonard's mother, Laura Manoske and visited their kids, Georgene Bump Bob Manoske, both of Monroe, and Frank who lives in Everett. According to Georgene, thei-e's always a fam- ily reunion whenever the Manoskes are in town. Mr. and Mrs. Cliff Leland areat home after a honeymoon trip to Eastern Washington.

Here is a very nice moist cake made from the wrinkled little things. You can use them already strained but I did cook my own a time or two and the recipe turns out just the same. This is fast and easy as all the ingredients are just about thrown together--but it is all from scratch." Mrs. Barton will receive one year's free re- newal of her Monitor subscription for this spiced prune cake. Oael Gable perience from her Spanish teacher and finally made application. She will visit with her aunt and uncle in San Francisco for two weeks during which time she will visit Disneyland and then fly to Mexico City where she will meet with the others in- volved in the program for orientation and some sight seeing. She will then spend five weeks with a family in Acupulco. Teri, president of the Rounders 4-H Club in Machias, sold two of her horses to finance the trip, which must be paid for privately. No shots or passport are required to visit Mexico, according to Tert, and she will not know which family she will be living with until she reaches Mexico City. Gael Gable, son of Thomas Gable, Monroe, will be going to Quito, Ecuador where he will also live with a family. He has already receiv- ed most of his shots and his passport is in order. A 1975 graduate of Monroe High School, Gael was on the basketball team and the golf team. He has had three years of Spanish. After meeting with the other participants in Mexico City, he will fly to Ecuador to meet his temporary family. Gael will attend Shoreline Community Col- lege in the Fall majoring in political science or Spanish. When asked if he were a little apprehen- sive of living with a family that speaks no English, Gael replied, "About as apprehen- sive as they feel about having me around." Both Teri and Gael have been students of Jeanne Van Ochten, Spanish teacher at Mon- roe High School who pointed out that two years of Spanish are required to participate in this exchange program. She recommends this par- ticular one because she knows the director, Gerald Aurand, personally and' the students live with a family 'ather than in a dormitory with other English speaking people. Before coming to Monroe to teach two years ago, Ms. Van Ochten taught high school Span- ish for two years in Michigan, spent two years in Costa Rica with the Peace Corps then came to this state and earned her Masters Degree in Spanish from the University of Washington. Besides the sights they will see, the people they will meet and the culture they will be ex- posed to, Teri and Gael will gain a depth of human understanding. harmon's features the best selection in leisure suits.
