National Week
of B. & P. W. Club
Observed Here
Voting intelligently is the
theme of business WO
- to discuss democ
racy problems
The 73,000 members of the Busi
ness and Professional Women's
clubs are observing this week, Oct
ober 6 to 12 as National Business
Women‘s week. This week is thir
teen years old and has grown each
year with current issues. The 1940
theme is “Business Women in a
Democracy—Vote ! "
The theme is centered around the
Federation’s program for the year,
“Making Democracy Work", which
will be studied also in the local club
and the program is so designed to
help each club member grasp the
problems of her own community.’
This organization is a. non
partisan group and has the endorse
ment from both President Roose
velt and Wendell Willkie for this
week. v
The first step in carrying out the
Federation program is to discuss
the political issues impartially on
the basis of fact rather than party
prejudice. The national president,
Dr. Minnie L. Maffett. states that,
“The most important factor in mak»
ing democracy work is to have an
informed and responsible citizenry.”
Therefore Dr. Maffett urges citizens
to do some ‘femergency thinking"
concerning the problems confront
ing our democracy today.
The objective of this national
week is to have the clubs cooper
ate with other organizations in em
phasizing the importance of vot
ing and voting intelligently. This
was observed by the local club when
three of the members, Myrtle Bailey,
Elsie Richmond and Verdella Muell
er visited the Kiwanis club Tues
day noon. Miss Mueller, president
of the club gave a few remarks
concerning the observance of the

Speak on Legislation
The regular Parent - Teacher
meeting was held Wednesday eve
ning in the high school auditorium.
The address of the evening, de
livered by Mr. Moulton, “Legislative
Trends in Education” brought forth
some very challenging and stimulat
ing statements concerning certain
movements r which have gained
considerable momentum in our
state. “We must become informed
parents to be intelligent parents.
There is perhaps no movement
which does not have some merit
but we must be careful not to be
carried away by seemingly meritor
ious measures, whose demerits far
out weigh their advantages.” Those
who were fortunate enough to hear
this address were given many vital
facts for deliberation.

The year 1940, which marks the
500th Anniversary of the invention
of printing, is also the 300th Anni
versary of the first book printed in
what is now the United States. That
volume, “The Whole Book of
Psalms,” which was printed by
Stephen Day and his two sons in
Cambridge, Mass, was also the first
\book written in what is now the
United States. - It is almost unbe
lievable, says Douglas C. McMurtrie,
printing historian and chairman of
the Invention of Printing Anni
versary Committee of the Interna
tional Association of Printing
House Craftsmen, that the minis

settlement translated its text from
the original Hebrew. Few scholars
could accomplish that task today.
Undisputed proof that Johann
Gutenberg was the actual inventor
of printing has been uncovered in

ten statements of contemporaries or
near contemporaries, according. to

purchased as a used car, at a price of $25. M. E. Coyle
(left), general manager of Chevrolet, presented the new
1940 Special De Luxe model to the Weinerts. Chevrolet’s
production of a million units this year maintains a seven
year record of a million a year average, with the 1.000.000 th
1940 car following No. 900,000 by exactly one month. The
well-traveled 1929 model has been returned to Detroit,
where it will be placed on display.

Langlie Says S4O
Pension is Possible
Efficient management of the
Washington state government would
assure the aged of proper financing
of a S4O monthly pension without
additional taxes; Mayor Arthur B.
Langlie of Seattle. Republican nom
inee for governor. declaring in a
series of addresses this week.
The young mayor was in a fight
ing mood as he criticized the treat
ment of some of the aged under
the present pension act.
“Our old age assistance act
should be amended to eliminate the
nuisance features of the present
law." Langiie declared. “such as
the pauper clause and the features
that permit snooping and petty reg
ulations so objectionable to every
one familiar with the present ad
ministration o! this department.”
Langlie advocates that the aged
should be taken care of eventually
throughout the country by a nation
al old age pension plan that would
pay for itself as the money is dis
pensed. He added, however. that
until such a plan is adopted nation
ally. “I pledge myseu to promote
in this state a sound pension pro
on a basis of S4O a month with the
federal government matching dol
lar {or dollar the state's contribu
t on.
Such a program. he declared. can
only be financed adequately it the
state government is nuanced eco
nomically and effectively to bring
about the necessary savings.

and failed miserably to handle this
problem to the satisfaction of the
people of this state.” Dengue told
