Watts reports a traffic route planned as a truck bypass along the dyke south of the Clearwater River would be called the Marina Boulevard and Truck Route, and would carry both cars and trucks estimated to be at 7,000 vehicles a day. The route, which would be a part of U.S. 12, would meet the Bryden Canyon Route--which extends from Bryden Avenue along a canyon route to Snake River Avenue, Watts told members of a Lewiston-Clarkston Transportation Steering Committee recently. The route he added has been designated a federal aid system as a farmto-market route. Completed, it would form almost a complete circle around the city, While the Marina Boulevard route would cost about $800,000, Watts noted, federal aid would reduce the local share considerably.

Nez Perce County Commissioner Chairman Otto Brammeer pointed out the boulevard's designation as part of the federal system would mean county funds could be used to help out.

Helene 14 T. Movie Shot in Area tract to the old Vitagraph studio in Hollywood, where she starred in a number of pictures before moving to the Paramount studio, where she wrote and starred in a hit play, "Wings in The Dark." In the early 1920s she brought an all-star from Hollywood to Spokane, where she wrote and starred in a feature picture, "The Grubstake," filmed movie studio which had been constructed at Minnehaha Park in Spokane and on location in the Northern Idaho mountain Wilderness. For this picture she had assembled a considerable zoo of animals, including two bears, a fawn, a cougar, a nine team of huskies, and an assortment of racoons, skunks and other small animals.

Blizzard Strikes On location at the north end of Upper Twin Lakes in Idaho in the late fall, the company was caught in a sudden subzero blizzard which blocked traffic in the area. The cast and crew members were able after considerable hardship to reach Spokane. But Miss Shipman and the two zoo keepers refused to abandon the animals, Bankson recalled. in the winter one of the keepers reached Spokane, where he reported that all animal food in the camp had been exhausted and the animals were at the point of starvation, Bankson said. The story of their plight went over The Associated Press wires, stirring a national response, as a relief expedition of handdrawn sleds made its way over the ice and snow of Twin Lakes, reaching the camp in time to save the animals.

The story of the relief expedition continued to make headlines from coast to coast, and later was told in a serialized account by Miss Shipman. This ran in The Atlantic Monthly. That summer the filming of "The Grubstake" was completed. Turned to Writing Later Miss Shipman retired from acting and devoted her time to writing. She authored a number of novels and juvenile books, some of which were serialized in magazines.

Among her best-known novels were "Get the Woman," "Abandoned Trails" and "Miss You, Sweetheart."

Lorraine Misiaszek, former Spokane woman, who is serving his office as consultant for Indian education. He said that, for the first time, the services of a state advisory committee composed almost entirely of Indians was formed. "We have distributed to the schools bibliographies of materials relating to the Indian people and their culture," he said. "This is part of an attempt to break down the traditional stereotypes. "We also are making an effort to involve parents as teaching and consultants in many schools, not only because we hope to involve parents to a greater extent in the educational endeavor, but because we believe it helps children develop a greater pride in the cultural heritage which is theirs.

He said the goal of Indian education is to teach children to treasure their native heritage and at the same time to become increasingly competent as active participating citizens in a multi-cultural society.
