Karen Pentland holding a Rex rabbit, noted for their velvet-like fur. Rabbit raisingfits family's new found country life by Bert Sinclair staffwriter Because their nine year old son Justin, is asthmatic and has suffered in many of the places they have called home, Gerry and Karel Pent- land have recently pur- chased a home near Brewster, and find the en- vironment to their liking, as well as conducive to Justin's good health. The Pentlands were living near Tacoma last year and came to this area to see the Omak rodeo, contacted a real estate agent here, were shown the old Monroe homestead on the Bar and fell in love with the house and the orchard country. They innnedlately bought the house and one acre of land from RIF Orchards in September, are settling in and updating the house, which dates back to 1909, ap- proximately. They are establishing a collection of pets and animals and are : happily excited about their new lifestyle. They found that Justin was not allergic to animals, so encouraged his interest in : rabbits, which began when : Im Joined a 4-H club and start- :ed a rabbit project. As Justin's interest in the rab- bits grew, so did his mother's and she began helping him to collect dif- ferent breeds, keeping records on those they buy : and seB and the sbow records :of the rabbits Justin takes to show. In March he entered rabbits in a Spokane show and collected ribbons for fir- st, second, fourth and fifth . places. They plan to go to Spokane again May 23 to en- ter another show. They now have rabbits for sale, for show or breeding purposes and for food, also. (They can only sell live rab- bits for food purposes). They keep 15 permanent rabbits and have 40 to 60 babies at a given time. Some of the unusual breeds they have are the Lop-eared; Rex, a most unusual rabbit with a plush, velvet-like fur; New Zealand; and Siamese Satin rabbits. They are hoping to get Dutch (breed) rabbits soon. The rabbits are kept in pens in a small ham and their permanent pairs are named and treated as pets. One rabbit comes into the house occasionally and they are sure he thinks he is a cat. The babies are not named or played with, so they do not become attached to them. It makes selling them easier, Karen points out. The whole family has become involved in Justin's 4-H project and enjoy their new life in the country, away from the city crowds they had experienced. The acre also has a pen for a friendly small horse and a yard full of interesting chickens, also of many breeds. Wandering about the back yard are Banty Crotians, Bard Rocks, Rhode Island Reds and another breed of chicken which lays colored eggs, These and two pet dogs round out the assortment of pets they have collected in the short months since they came here. Justin Pentland Karen and Gerry, who works for Mumma Trucking, happily sing the praises of their new home and en- thusiastically extoll the finer points of the school system and the friendly people they have met. "I wish more city people knew that it is possible to live in a place like this," Karen'remarked, ad- ding, "Although I don't want it to get too crowded here!" Justin Pentland entered three rabbits of three dif- ferent breeds, Rex, New Zealand and French Lap in the Mid Valley Rabbit Breeders Association show May 15 at Toppenlsh. The three Pentland owned rabbits won three first places, one for each breed. This show featured about 150 rabbits, 20 to 30 in a class.

Wor- den, Washington, having been selected to act as a Spanish consultant for the program. The program was designed to give students as much of a foreign language experience as possible without actually visiting a foreign country, even possibly being a good initiation or preparation for an exchange trip. The students got a first-hand foreign culture experience that could not be equated with a classroom setting. Most activities are non- classroom activities and Mrs. Rawson was urged to bring games, dictionaries, posters, newspapers, or magazines that could be shared with others, in- somuch as all schools have Do you have?
