And you can bet your hip boots it will be even livelier next year. Many valley folks gave, in time and financially, to the undertaking, however we shall not take it upon ourselves to name them individually--needless to say, you know who put it down and they merit the thanks of all of us. Albeit, we personally extend our gratitude to a man by the name of Henry M. Jackson and a home-town boy named Lloyd Meeds, as well as two soldiers of armor, Tank Commander S. Sgt. Richard McMaster and Spec. 4 Bob Korhonen. by C.C. GARVIN, JR. Chairman of the Board Exxon Corp. Congress is in the final stages of deliberation on legisla- tion which, if enacted, will not only seriously delay petroleum exploration and development on the nation's Outer Continental Shelf [OCS], but also could be the first step toward a federal oil and gas company [FOGCO]. The bill is entitled the OCS Lands Act Amendments of 1977. The Senate has already passed its version of the bill [5.9], and the House is expected to act on its version [H.R. 1614] in early September. Principal features now in both versions of the bill include new and lengthy procedures for the states' involvement in OCS leasing, mandated use of new and untried leasing methods, separate leases for exploration and production [so-called dual leasing] and authorization of exploratory drilling by the federal government. These features, together with recent slippage of the OCS lease sale schedule and new provisions in the Coastal Zone Management Act, would delay 0C5 development an estimated two to four years, thus increasing oil imports in 1985 by as much as two million barrels per day. In addition, the federal exploration provisions could lead to a FOCCO type of bureaucracy which would be extremely costly to the consumer and threaten our competitive private enterprise system. Proponents of this legislation have contended that such amendments to the existing OCS Lands Act of 1953 are needed to assure efficient and environmentally safe development of the OCS, and to enable the federal government to obtain a fair market value for its leases. We believe existing laws already provide for such development, and for adequate involvement by adjacent states; and that the proposed amendments are not only The store where your dollar will do the mnsL Extra low prices on General Electric Appliances & T.Es Satisfaction guaranteed.

Further, current government revenues from OCS leases [bonuses, rentals, royalties and income taxes] are more th@n fair, as evidenced by the fact that oil and gas company returns on OCS investments have been considerably less than the average return for all of U.S. manufacturing. We believe that you will share our concerns about this proposed legislation, particularly those provisions allow- ing exploratory drilling by the federal government, and that you will agree that such legislation is undesirable. If this is the case, you may wish to contact your congress- man promptly and provide him with your views on this vital issue. 000 Dear Sir, This is a THANK YOU to all who were involved in making the Monroe Fair Days Parade a huge success today. The enthusiasm from everyone there was tremendous. The donations are still coming in and the success today with the prizes was just great. I know the entire Parade Committee wants to THANK ALL who helped with the organization, help and participation to make it all happen. When the Fair is all over, I hope the surplus funds will be used for next years parade and a CITY FLOAT with which to participate in other parades and celebrations throughout ! Police Chief Pans Report On Re (Continued from page 1) no identification. Further checks revealed the man to be Brown. Prior to his escape, Brown had a Dec. 9 release date. Reformatory Associate Supt. for Treatment Richard Bosse said Brown faces possible prosecution for escape and burglary charges. Meanwhile, two other convicts who fled from the maximum security area of the reformatory on July 3 face a variety of charges in Snohomish County and in Lane County, Oregon, Bosse said. Gary Ray Baily, 23, who was captured July 3 about a mile from the reformatory near a residence on Valley View Rd., was arraigned on escape charges in Everett Friday, bosse said. His partner in the breakout, Dana Vernon Brown, 21, will be charged with perjury, robbery, auto theft and habitual criminal offenses by the Lane County, Oregon prosecutor's office, said the superintendent. Brown, after one month's flight, was apprehended in Eugene, Oregon and offered no resistance. Concen (Continued from page 1) tion, maybe they could help us out with some funding," said Nauman. He said the report will probably not generate any action by the state since it does not connect Monroe's crime rate with transient reformatory populations. In its conclusions, the technical assistance report stated: "Based upon the information available to us we cannot establish factually that a relationship exists between the size of the population of the reformatory and the level of crime in the community." The report went on to say that while the level of law enforcement in Monroe "seems govern- ment might well consider authorizing and budgeting for one additional police officer position." Since the report was issued, the City of Monroe has added an additional Comprehensive Employment and Training Act police officer position to its six-man contingent. But the chief points to one passage in the report's con- clusion which, he says, sums up the police department dil- emma: "If the presence of the institution...creates law enforce- ment problems, the burden of providing a response to those problems should rest with the city.
