As we try not to overlook the var- ‘
ions "weeks" that go to make bet
ter business, we are sure to observe
the week of October 23-29 that is set
aside for the observance of Better
Parenthood which is most worthy
of comment. 0! course there are
many who feel they couldn’t be any
better parents if they tried! The
fact that you can acquire tips for
raising your children from most
everyone in Kennewick doesn’t mean
you are a poor parent. So often the
other person sees little things that
the parent’s eyes of love refuses to
see. The wise parent is willing to
listen to suggestions, to read of so
lutions of problem cases which have
been solved successfully by someone
else. The parent who feels the best
way to rear his family is to let them
express their initiative and person
ality unrestrained, often find they
have reared children who “know it
all.” The mother who uses psychol
ogy to the extreme often awakens to
the fact that the open palm might
prove more effective and chanacter
(arming, A parent can go just so
far and from there the child takes
over. The wise parent tries to cope
with the situation as long as he is
in power. The patient parent seems
to be the most successful, and the
father and mother who hold their
tempers when correcting are the
victors. The ones who praise as well
as punish are closest to their young.

Having just finished one of the
newest books, written by an Italian,
supposedly depicting the intimate
life or the lower class immigrant
into this country, we are stronger
than ever in our opinion that dras
ticchangesshmildbemadeinthe
laws which permit citizens of other
countries entrance here. We have
Ithought for some time that natives
of other countries who come here
to make a living in the new world}
should be given a reasonable length
of time—a year, or so—in which‘
tomake up their minds as to wheth-j
er they want to stay here. Then, if ;
they do not apply for citizenship;
deport them. ‘
We are also inclined to the idea}
that free speech and freedom of
action is all right for citizens of
this country only. Foreigners should‘
not be allowed the same privileges
wnich citizens of‘ this country may
«May as a matter of right.
And while it may sound heartless,
we also feel that none but citizens
should receive support from public
funds.
And by the same token. we believe
that American citizens who wish to
travel in or invest. funds in lorelgn
lands should do so entirely at their
on risk.
The dairy business in Benton
county has been on the decline for
several years. During the depress
ion. the unequal prices received for
dairy products as against the cost of
ieeds, caused many of the dairymen
todisposecftheirherdsandget
out 01 the business. Some slight
pickup has been indicated recently,
but the high class producing cow is
still in the minority. Too many far
mers still have cows that fail to
pay their keep. Too many farmers
fail to keep adequate records so
proving this fact. Too many farm
ers find it impossible to pay the
high rates required for the high
producing strains. The way out is
being offered through the FSA's
plan or cooperative ownership of
high grade sires. Here, while a
slower process, is the way for the
farmer to get more for his feed and
labor than he now receives throth
the “boarder" cattle he milks daily.
There is serious need for this im
provement. It deserves serious re
flection.

' To say our young people are ex
pecting to start in where their fa
ther is after many years of work, is
wrong if the claim is too general.
There are more than 40 percent of
college men who are working their
way through school and this is a
good way for them to find out how
tough the struggle was for Dad,
’The educators tell us that too many
young people attend college who are‘
mentally unequipped and would be
better off in the business world
earning a living. This is no doubt
true in many cases, but we figure
the student who is working his way
through is not in this class, usual
ly. He is gmbitious and determined
to learn a d the fact that he is do
ing two jobs at one time will find
him the winner. Our hats are off
to those lads who so desire an edu
cation that they are willing to get
it the hard way.
Here at long last, is something for
the chamber of commerce to get its
teeth into. A setup just made for
chamber of commerce action! The
matter of bringing pressure to bear
to get the war department to getl
to the job of clearing the channel
at Homily Rapids. River improve
ment work is being pushed, officials
are rarin’ to go, equipment is avail
able and everything propitious ex
cept a clamor from the district af
‘fected. What a chance for clamor!
What a chance for the chamber to
stir it up! And, with success, every
body wins and nobody loses!
WHYAKEY
Being the size we are in Kenne
wick, the subject of auto stealing is
not as important as in larger cen
ters, Where it occurs far too fre
quently. Since the auto is found
everywhere it is wise to profit by
the mistakes of our neighbors. It is a
'fact tint most autos are stolen lor‘
merformance of crime rather than‘
‘for resale. Many cars are borrowedi
for “joy rides" and abandoned along‘
the road after they have servedl
their purpose. This is the reason
most cars are recovered. But why‘
issue an invitation by leaving your
car unlocked? It may be accepted
by someone who will dismantle it
and not be too careful of their}
treatment of tenders and motor, bat
tery and tires.
\ If your preacher preaches on an
average of but one good sermon a
month it will pay you to attend
churc the other three Sundays and
sit through a null sermon. One
good sermon that strikes down a
man's alley may change his - whole
outlook on life, and no inconven
ience is too great if it will give one
a new outlook upon living.
Up to date Russia has won the
war. Russia has acquired 100,000
square miles of territory and 18,-
000,000 more population without fir
ing a shot or losing a man. There
is a growing feeling that Hitler’s
pleas for peace are born of a fear
for Stalin, Stalin, is, if possible,
more col-d blooded, more selfish,
more cooly calculating and more
ruthless than Hitler. When it comes
to such things it is believed Sta
lin can beat Hitler at his own game.
