GOLD HILE—A new industry
is being Welcomed in Gold Hill.
It is the Tarbell Custom Bow
Shop where Neil Tarbell, with
assistants Wayne Brandon and
Bud Ingram of Ontario, Calif, are
manfucaturing custom - made
bows tor the archery trade.
The business is in a building
next to the OK Pastime Tavern.
It has been empty for the past
year or so.
Machine tools and some ma­
terials are on hand ready to fill
orders. Tarbell states that he
has several orders to fill for
California customers so he ex­
pects to be busy.
Bows on hand are beautiful
and are calk'd modern composite
bows made of three materials.
Black walnut wood, which can
be obtained locally, makes up
the main part of the bow; east­
ern maple is used for the limb
of the bow and fiber glass cov­
ering comes from Los Angeles.
The bows are claimed to be
faster, more flexible and dur­
able than older types
strings are of dacron.
About eight different lengths
in three price ranges will be
made. Other supplies will be
handled later.
Of interest was that Wayne
Brandon had killed the largest
black tailed deer, by bow and
arrow, ever killed in the United
States. This kill was made in
Southern California.
The young men are looking
forward to attending the state
archery ’tournament to be held
in Eugene this weekend. Aug­
ust 18 and 19.
Also of interest is the fact that
Joe Williamson, three-time state
archery champion, lives near
Gold Hill and can supply the
black walnUt wood needed in
manufacturing the Tarbell Cus­
tom bow.

ded that this is not a fund-rais­
ing meeting, and that the tickets
are simply to’ pay the cost of the
food. Those wishing to see i.nd
hear Seaton and the political
candidates, but who do not wish
to participate in the informal
supper, will be welcomed free
of charge.
