Seems Like Yesterday

50 years ago (1964)

George D. Bartch, a Seattle native who had been manader of the Port of Hood River, Ore. the past seven years, was named manager of the Port of Everett effective Sept. 1.

Gillnetters Zene Hatch and sons Zane, Arnold and Dexter netted a 3,000-pound killer whale about 5 this morning off Mission Bar, Totem Beach. The 16-foot monster rolled out of the net and started to go under a dock as they entered port, but was shot twice with a .44 magnum.
