cusses Crime, Traffic
“The most unsuccessful newspa
per in the United States does more
for fithe support ,of its community
than the finest community ever
does for the support of ' its news-
Pwm..-‘ ~-:._._.-~u ,-. _. _.
Such was the statement made
today by Karl Lehmann, of Taxares,
Fla., publicity chairman for Xi
wanis International, to convention
delegates. He explained that the
value of Kiwania news is to educate
a community in the service organ
ization's civic and welfare programs.
"The newspaper,” he said, “re
fleets all community life, religious.
educational and ‘civic. Therefore
the‘ average citizen is indebted to
his newspaper ‘_ which constantly
brings to him the news of local.
state. national and international at
tairs.' ’
“Every civic, religious and . educa
tional group in a city is in the habit
of coming to the newspaper pub
iisher, asking him to give away free
the one commodity he has for sale.
This is space! We would ask of no
other form of business, in our com
munity to give away free that which
gives a livelihood. We. would not go
into a bakery and ask the baker
to give us a loaf of his bread. Yet
the newspaper owner is asked to
give away the space he has tosell:
perhaps not realizing that this com
modity, like any other merchandise,
costs money to produce.” he said.
Kiwanis does not need to sellit-I
self to its own members nor does it
need to seek publicity to glorify its
work. Mr. Lehmann estimated. Ki
wanis publicity must be really edu
cational. »

Kennewick's very nice litue park
has: gone too long withoqt ," name.
Now that the Kiwanis club is and

trance, the need (or a name is felt
’more than ever. The idea or hold
:‘ng a public contest to select a name
has been considered, but due to lack
‘0! time it was abandoned, and inas
much as two members of the local
ipark board are out of town, the re
imaining member (duly prompted)
has determined to supply a name.
For course the name is'subject to
change without notice. but in the
'meantime, for local publicity pur
poses the name has been selected.
‘ Appropriately an Indian name
was chosen. A nice, easily spelled,
easily pronounced. easily under

marks of being the prtper one. So—
until convinced to the contrary, the
