OLYMPIA ROUND-UP Olympia...Now that the general election is behind us, ,although the zn)rd number of absentee ballots may decide some races, we have the choice of ,relaxing or starting to worry .about what the 1961 legis- lature may do to us. The lawmak- ers will .assemble in Olympia on Jan. 9, land according .to custom promptly vote themselves a chunk of your money to'cover theJ, r ex- penses, al start .the usttal milling process of ,becoming organized to start deliberations. all that we have heard here ,and there, we are not appre- hensive that the 37th session will enact any major tax increapes. It is possible that ere could be some ncrease in the gasolir tax. There is 6alk of the state's picking up tn extra cent levied by the federal govemaWe which will ex- pire next July 1  Congress does not "re-enact the evy. Or maybe there will have to be a one-half cent increase anyhow to help the lmrdpressed cities with their street problems. This is "iffy" at the moment. Bu as for other axes we do not believe" the solons have the stomach for piling ,anything on top of the $112,000,000 tax increase they levied in 1959. Demands may rean some doficit financg in the biennial period ahead, ,arid ff this is the case look out for wht. could happen in 1963. . . . , Undesirable Legislaion There is always that stupper on any undesirahl legislation that may be enacted in enthusiasm in the lower house of the legis]ature -- the conservative Senate Rues Om, a,aittee.

Business and Occupation Tax Speaking of axez, we learn from the State Tax Commission that the taxes ,due the stat for the first three months t0f this year totaled $71,095,926, bout $8,500,000 more than for the same period 'a year ago. However,.the Conission said that the two periods ,ar not com- parable .,because of tax increases and changes in reporting periods authorized by the 1959 legislature. The bulk of the accrt/ed zevenue, mmrly $62,000,000 was om the state's business ,and occupation Cax and the sales ,and compensating taxes. Tkat would seem to indicate .to us wha a problem it would .,be to abolish the bus and occupation tax, as has been advocated during the political campaign, to create better business climate. We were told that Gov. RoseEini was carrying around igures in'his brid cas during the omnpaign which showed that this state was (Continued on page 5) I Juw Finds Sheriff HollerDollar Has,+Winner For the second time in the cur- rent series, Monroe's holler dol- lar has been unearthed, this time by Donald Morrison, Monroe, who collected $14 by turning the bill in Wednesday afternoon. Morrison, a telegrapher for the Gre'at Northern Railroad, showed up in the Monitor office with Mar- tha Blair of Larry's Food Store, one ofthis week's sponsors, to collect his money.

Next week s lucky buck will again be worth $28.

A series of fa.tal illnesses within the amily are leaving th young coaple with no grocery money or funds to make .their son's last few months a little more enjoyable. Jerry Edvards, 26, and his 24- year-old wife Donnie ,lost eir daughter ,Laurie two years ago from an incurable brain lment. Recently, .the couple learned three-year-old Jrry has b e e n stricken with the disease. Their third child, Kelly, 14-months-old, is likely o contract, the same illness when he reaches the age of 3. Friends have started raising funds for the couple not ,to stave off the sense of fear ,and frustration which Jerry and Donnie feel os they watch each of their beloved children die--this would be impos- sible. The fund wil give ,them the money to meet their obliga.tions and, most important, to make sure Kel has a chance. Mrs. ,Edwards put it this way: "We actually don't know what to do but anything is better than ust standing hy .and seeing our chil- dren die." An mmt of Edwards, Mrs. Fred W. Olsen of 'Snohomish, eels the same way and had hoped the youngster could be 'sent to the layo Clinic in. Minnesota. How- ever test results now indicate such a trip would .be fruitless. However, .the family hope ,to send t0elly to he clinic for observation before the disease strikes. The il, lness was diagnosed by the fandly physician as the very rar "Tay-Sach." Its claracteristics are progressive enlargement of the brain cells when`ty elements in theso cells increase more rapidly .than they should. He said the disease was not in- herited in the usual sense of the word, that is, passed from gener- a`tion o generation. Rather, it is probably due to `the combined gene- .tic makeup: of Jerry Sr. and his wife. ,It is so rare that .there is sel- dom more than one case in ,the Northwest each year.

In fact, .the Porky's weight was cause for two duplicate sets of prizes. Claiming duplicate first prizes of a Oarsten's Hygrade Fiesta bone- less ham were Ole ,Haug of Duvall and Mrs. Harmon, Waggoner, Rt. 2, Snohomish. Both guessed Porky's weight of 133 .pounds. Iplicate second prizes of picnic shoulders went to Paul Broughton, 409 S. Sam St., .and ,Gary Boesser, Monroe, both of whom guessed Porky's weight at 132 pounds and 10 ounces, Harley Heurickson, 369 S. Sam St., claimed .third prize of. t w o pounds of 'Carsten's Hygrade bacon, guessing the pork's weight at 133 pounds. Here is the way Bob and Irving Scharf's give-away worked: /El contestants had to do was drop in at the market, and guess the weighi of a pig which g;as displayed last Friday and aturday. Those com- ing closest ,to the correct weight were then judged the winners.
