Dr. Spaulding is dead. This an

r The United States seems to be
. turning away from all kinds of
“isms" and back to the fundamental
theory of our government, namely,
a free people and individual oppor
. tunity—a government to protect,
not to compete with its own citizens
in business.
To quote the President, “Private
industry wrll have the responsibil
ity of providing the best, speediest
and most efficient mass production
of which it is capaLle."
There can be no question of the
desire of American industry to co
operate to the limit of its ability
with our government to attain un
precedented heights of efficiency
and service to the end that Ameri
ca may swiftly be provided with the
best defense system in the world.
And there should be no question of i
the willingness of our public ser
vants, from the Executive down, to
cooperate with private enterprise in
order to guarantee the successful
completion of that gigantic task.
It has taken a world calamity to
reawaken our people to the vital
role whice private enterprise plays
in our national life.
The men, the machines,.the re
sources, and the technique which
private enterprise has developed, are
our first lme of defense. The great
industries of America made possible
the highest peacetime standards of
living for all—and out of these in
:dustries. staffed with free men
‘working under a free enterprise
system, must cOme our weapons of
The time when we could afford
socialistic experiences to the de
struction of private enterprise—if
we could afford them—has passed.
The national defense is the first and
foremost duty of the Federal gov
ernment in its determination to per
petuate the American way of life.
We must get back to the funda
mentals of democracy if we are to
survive as a free and secure people
where government is the servant,
not the master of its citizens.
Many are predicting that compul
sory military training is only a few
years off in this country. A modi
fied form of military training that
would combine with it some form
of vocational instruction for two
years would be a desirable thing for
the youth of this country. It would
give them time to get their bearings
during the first two years after
graduation from high school or col
The mm column in this country
is made up of enemies and spies
whose purpose it is to aid Hitler in
his program of world domination.
The sixth column, which is every
bit as dangerous to this country, is
made up of those who insist that the
affair of ours and that we should
do nothing about it.
The parking problem the past few
weeks has become serious in Ken
newick. In the evenings it is al
most impossible to park on the
main streets within a block or two
of the business houses. Foreseeing
this condition, the city went to con—
siderable trouble and expense to
provide a convenient parking lot,
yet no one seems to care to use it.
The lot is opposite the Smith garage
and can handle a hundred or more
parked cars. The lot is convenient,
is easy of access, clean and well
lighted. The next time you come
to town and have trouble in find
ing a, parking space, try the city
