J. W. H. Answer: The people of Dixie and their streets are not forgotten! The Countv Commissioners on Aug. 4. 1968 set up County Road Project No. 69-21 which included funds for resurfacing streets in Dixie. The Dixie Water District, in the next two months, intends to lay water pipes on most of these streets, and has requested that the county wait until the spring of 1970 to make the improvements, after the new water lines are buried. The citizens of Dixie have, in manv cases, encroached on the countv nght-of-wav. and prior to this reconstruction next spring, the residents of Dixie are requested to move fences back to their property lines and remove debris, car-bodies, etc. that have been parked on the county right-of-wav. Such fences and debris have made it most difficult to maintain the roadwavs in the area. Dixie has not been forgotten. The countv has built a new street in the vicinity of the Dixie school garage, within the past several months. Also, a sanitarv land fill has been purchased for the Dixie area and will soon be in full operation by Walla Walla Countv. The county will continue to maintain all countv property as funds and time will permit, including trimming of weeds in Dixie, and any other proper county function.

All area packing houses are running long shifts and in addition to the many male employes, every available housewife is currently employed in order to handle the huge crop. Blue Mountain Grower's. Stadelman's and Mojonnier's packing plants have all been equipped with apple waxing machines, explained Burkhart. Using this process the apples are washed, brushed, sprayed with wax. placed in a heating chamber to dry and then given a final polishing. Stadelman's reports the most boxes of apples processed during one shift was boxes the average box weighing about 42 pounds. Other plants are handling a like amount. Burkhart said apple processing would be in full swing in the Dayton area in about 10 days. Public record Holdup threat at Wallula ends in hurry Some days a man can't earn an honest buck or even a dishonest one. Such was the case early Wednesday when a man drove up to the Economy Service Station at Wallula Junction with a shotgun on his lap. "How much money do you have in the he asked attendant Robert Thompson, 20. Pasco. "I don't know but it wouldn't be worth it."
