Seems Like Yesterday

50 years ago (1962)
Helen Lalin, a retired teacher who headed the commercial department at Everett High School, had continued to teach commercial subjects to military personnel at Paine Field. She instructed military correspondence procedures after her students mastered basic typing skills. Lalin still found time to enjoy bridge and piano.
Brown the Plumber submitted the apparent low bid on the installation of a new water heating system in Everett City Hall. The firm's bid was $600 plus tax. Other bidders were Glantz Supply, $819; Haskell Corp., $698, and Rucker Avenue Plumbing, $697.60. Calls for bids on construction of a foundation for a new park department comfort station at Legion Park failed to produce any bidders.
