With their fingers czx)ssed for goad eather, the fair ,association's board of directors nade a final tour of the big exposition this week and pronounced the plant ready for a new attack on the at{endance record. That was set last fall, when 406,774 persons passed through the Fair's turnstiles.

Kovarik LOgan 8-6955 20-t The grandstand show, center of attraction twice daily--at 1:30 and 7:00 p.m.--promises many a thrill, many a laugh .for the throngs which ill the stands each day. The at- tractions will range from top-flight entertainers, led by the Kristen- seas, famed circus troupe from Denmark, to the excitement of, one of the West's biggest rodeos, where the nation's leading cowboys will compete for an estimated $15,000 in prizes, as well as points in na- tional competition. In between the two extremes will be Cy Taillon, grandstand show master of ceremonies; horse races called by one of the country's best, Harry Hensen; the crowd pleasing clown, Happy KeUems; Pompoff, Thedy ,and Family, a zany Spanish quintet who have be- come known as The Royal Family of Comedy; and Washington State's own George Prescott, a cowboy in his own right who has "retired" Throughout the nine-day show, dignitaries from throughout Wash- ington will lead groups to the Fair in observance of days designated to honor areas of the state. That schedule includes: Opening Day, Grange, Pioneer and Eastern Wash- ington Day; Sunday, September 17.

I Serve-U store w,II Ten lettermen answered the opening practice call of new coach Steve Hansen and assistant John Sandberg for the 1961-62 football season... Returning to the battle of the pigskin were Keith Weeks and Bob Thompson in the backfield, and Jim Bonga, LeRoy Bloor, Mike McIntyre, Chuck Nasman, Steve Valley, Don Bengston, Kent Scott, and Bruce MacDougall as Weeks, Thompson, Bloor, Nas- man, Bengsten, and Scott were all starters last season. Even with these returning vets, Hanson and Sandberg will be faced with a big quest.ion at many positions: "Shall we go with all vets or start _ome sophomores?" And this question will only, be answered after full trial of .all players. Incidentally, the non-lettermen have been giv- ing the lettermen a big rush for their job. Adding to the suspense will be the lack of knowledge concerning opponents from Issaquah and Ta- homa. The Indians took the mea- sure of the Cats Iast year after a hard fought battle for their second straight (and total number) vic- tories over Monroe. If the Issaquah eleven live up to expectations, the 'Cat linemen will be in for all they can handle. Coach Bob Nowadnik's charges like nothing better than to pound down a football ield by inches, rarely ranning wider than the tackles and even less seldom passing the football. However, changes could well be made in a year. Monroe has relied heavily on a passing attack against the rock-ribbed Indians in past years. Non-lettermen Hustle Hustling for a starting berth has brought ut talent in manhr sur- prising non-lettermen. The Orange vs Black game last Friday netted performances by Danny Weaver, Mary Fllckner, Roger Creswell, Dennis Weeks, Roger Ohlsen, Walt Werkhoven, and Joe Bonga. Also newcomers Ron lV[eCaffery, B o b Charles, Mike Berglund, Nels An- derson, Jim Helm, Bob Riordan, Orville Thorp, B eb Bock, Pat Ra- mey, Paul Kriegel, Bill Faussett, and Mike Carlson have raised the interest of the coaching staff from time to time. As Hansen put it, "We show a lot of hustle and spirit; nobody on the squad has time to relax dur- ing practice for fear someone will take his job. And he is right." New Roof Hoisted While Everett high school puts on their campaign of bleacher roof .boosters, and cover the stands propaganda, the Monroe Lions club (with push and aid from interested fans) turned a Monroe roofing pro- ject over to chairmen Nels Carl- son. A weekend or two later it was up. Fans may fear not the rain for '61 football. Bror Thompson, Roy Berlin, Stu Trombley, and Al- bert McIntyre took charge of the hammer and nail crew after Del- ton Davis had welded, cut, and the big steel beams and bracing for the sizeable roof. Then Harry Nasman lifted the big beams into place as Jack Law squirreled around the heights directing the process. Lions Club members provided the hole digging, pole lif.:ing, pail pounding, board packing, p a i n t brushing, and tin snipping labors. After the roof looked like a roof, the Lions placed a p( (yet to .'be finished) UP on Lop and Carl Raben took over the painting job. The Friday deadline is "close' and the Lions are hustling as rapidly and with .as much determination as the Bearcats on the turf.

The Bearcats should claw Granite --Monroe by at least two TD's. September 29, Tahoma here. A first meeting of the two clubs and at present rests upon a one year basis. This game takes the place of the former Lake Stevens Kings- X tussle. For lack of knowledge, we will rate this one a tss-up and give Monroe the nod for nothing more than complete favoritism. October 6, Arlington here. Open- ing league game undoubtedly fa- vors the Eagles who will start on their way to the championship. With all but one starter returning, the Larry Munniza led Arlington eleven should push across from three to five TD's on the young Bearcats. October 13, at Concrrete. We pick the Monroeites to win their first victory at the Skagit County school since 1956--Monroe 13-6. October 20, at Twin City. T h c Cardinals could prove pesky and usually do. A toss-up with the Han- senmen by a point or two. October 27, Langley here. This has been marked as Homecoming game. The Falcons claim their best team ever. The Bearcats have yet to drop one to Langley at home. Here could be the upset of the year.., we pick Monroe to con- inue their habit of beating Lang- ley at home. November 3, at Lake Stevens. Always a thriller. This year, as last Monroe could dominate the play. Bearcats by two TD's. November 11, Sultan here. An afternoon game beginning at 1:30. Last year the Turks stopped Mon- roe in .a well played game. This year Monroe gets the nod.
