'There are reports coming in from
the nation regarding the addition
or pennies to liquors, gasoline,
movies and many other things. The
general concensus of opinion is that
there is not wide-spread disapprov
al of the increase of cost since this
tax is a way of paying for a na
tional suit of armor, of stopping the
hole in the dike with pennies to
keep the flood from our homes.
When we know of the heavy arma
ment taxes that other countries are
paying on small salaries, food, ne
cessities and luxuries of all types,
we know that we are not suffer
ing so much. The EngliSh people
are portioning. rationing and stint
ing until it hurts. The cost of an
auto plus the heavy new tax over
there has made it a luxury to own
one. You have to be pretty well
fixed to buy ‘petrol’ to fill the tank.
Our new taxes are needed to pay for
the national defense program and
however we might side politically,
we are all of one mind—to protect
our home!
We are omy human when, as tax
payers, we insist that our money be
well spent. There are too many
taxes that are «00115th used and
there probably isn’t a voter who has
not a grievance of some kind over
one one tax. But this new levy,
for our country’s protection in time
of great trmble, is money that we
do not generally begrudge. So when
the reports come in that there are
very few complaints over the addi
tional pennies. it makes us feel
that in such unified sentiments we
are a stronger nation. This is a
bulwark against the storm.
The editorm columns of the na
tion’s papers perhaps pay too little
homage to the business man. We
refer to the average man engaged
in an average community like Ken
newick, who helps the town and his
neighbors, tries to weather each
economic storm that (hits, hopes to
hold hs own and balance the led
ger to everybody’s mtistaction. The
days of the head or bass having the

The businas man is called upon
to support local projects, is asked
to subscribe and sponsor to many
civic programs. He enters into it
with a good public spirit although
the duties and responsibilities of his
bushes have increased to where
they become quite a burden. Man
has made business more complex,
but that is to be expected since
there is so much more of it, cov
ering increased territory and con
cerning more individuals. The
troubles of our business men have
been heard and his plea for con
sideration been registered. He may
be under-maid and over-taxed, but
he will not be unappreciated by
this column. A tribute to the hon
est business man who backs the na
tion with his economic bit and who
helm to make this a country of in
dividuals. '
'lthose bitterly opposed to prepard
neas would be the first one in the
event a foreign power invaded our
shores, or rstricted their rights, to
want to send out soldiers to fight
modern tanks with their bare hands
as the Chinese are having to do.
Telephone Sewice
Saves in Many Ways
This service is so economical and there is no
better investment in household necessities than
a telephone.
0 It is the No. 1 necessity these hot days—be
cause it saves so many steps and nothing gives
more for so little than telephone service.

call on you and tell you how little it will cost to

It Will soon begin in our neighbor
hood, the commencement of hay
fever for those unfortunate ones who
suffer from this demon. Too bad
there is only temporary relief of
fered {for the complaint although
each year finds new aids to com
bat the fever. The chief plant that
is commonly (held as the cause of
the most discomfort, is ragweed.
Any of us who might hold land that
grows ragweed are surely humani
tarian enough to cut it down. The
pollen of this weed becomes most
troublesome during August and it
lis well to begin work on those that
‘ are flourishing and remove some of
‘the cause right now. A botanist who
makes a study of pollen conditions
warns us that this year will find
hay fever the worst it has been in
history. The middle west will suf
fer especially. We have had such
an excessive amount of wet weather
this spring. and this stimulates the
growth. Due to the drought of last
summer which killed vast areas of
grass, the ragweed has had more
room in which to grow.
So grab a sickle and do your bit in
the name of hay fever. We in Ken
newick will be well repaid for our
efforts when we consider the relief
we are giving the sufferers.
A Kennewick Iriend who recent
ly returned from a lengfihty aurto
tour of miles covering a goodly part
of the country, states that there is
a great improvement in the eating
accomodations that greet you while
motoring today. The wayside res
taurant of greasy-spoon type is out.
and to take its place we find clean,
Wholesome looking restaurants that

up in decoration as well. With cir
culars printing data of towns, ho
tels and restaurants for the tour
ist, it is good business to cater to
this means or advertising. All
those who travel will welcome im
provements in accomodations they‘
encounter on their way. ‘
Knox and Stimson came through
the senate investigation with flying
colors. They are both capable men.
Incidentally it required no little de
gree of patriotism for these men,
both of whom occupied high places
in their party circles, to brook the
displeasure of their party leaders
and accept a position on the cabinet
of a Democratic president. They
will render a fine, intelligent, pa
triotic service to this country.
France, ‘in our opinion, has sold
her birthright afor a mess of pottage.
France thinks that Hitler has given
her an honorable peace. In the light
01' Hitler’s past performances and
his complete failure to keep any
of his promises, we predict that
Mardhal Petain, old though (he is,
will live to see the time when
France is stripped of every sem
blance of freedom and is but a vas
sal state of Germany. She talks
about rebuilding and coming back,
but with a German spy system in
every village, with censored news
papers and Hitler propagandized
and censorized radio, with all her
arms under the control of Hitler,
with free speech, free press, (free
radio gone, she will be helpless to
help herself.
’ The war has brought something
else to our shores. We have become
birth certificate conscious where 01’
old we didn't give much thought to
the matter. It does not concern only
those foreign born or of foreign
parentage, but it reaches out to
Americans who can trace their an
cestors 'back to the wampum days.
Workmen, engaged in the produc
tion of war materials, are required
to show birth certificates. Then too,
tourists leaving this country, @O
- to Canada especially, must show
a certificate of birth upon their re
entry ;to this country. Many oth:
ers are asking for information re-3
garding certificates and others who‘
are becoming more interested. The
man Who sat behind the desk in
the ‘birth certificate department is
having more Work to do.
I When we hear a nonprepardedist
object to this country’s prepardness
program we wish the objector would
’go on and tell what, in his opinion,
gshould be done if an aggressor na
tion attempted to invade this coun
‘ try or seriously threatened our
rights in the world. .Would they
permit them to invade and take
over the country, or would they re
sist them? If they would let an
aggressor nation invade this ooun-;
try why don’t they have the courage 1
to come out now and say they
would? If they would .resist an in
vader, would they the willing to send
out soldiers under-equipped, under
trained to fight modem tanks and
bombers with their bare hands? We
believe they should tell us just how
they plan to meet this situation.
They should be as honest as the
prepardeness 8101119.
It is political demagoguery to find
fault with Congress because it has
not in (the past spent the money
used on relief projects for the pur
pose of preparing this country for
war. If this group were sincere they
would admit what everybody knows
that six years ago the country
would. not have stood for the ex
penditure of borrowed money for the
building of a great army or navy.

Climbing stairs—lifting the weight of your whole body at every

Not only quick energy for immediate needs, but sustained energy,
