Abill has been presented in con m by Congressman Carlson of Kansas to do away with the secrecy povision in the amendment of the Social Security Act. The secrecy pro vhim of the Social Security Act prohibits the publication by a news paper of the disbursements made in relief by a county Welfare of-‘ fine.

STRANGE BUT TRUE We Carry the most complete line of. . .. FEEDS & SEEDS Alfalfa seed is cheaper this year. We have both Common and the new weevil resistant LADAK ‘ This seed does well here.

AMON NAMEDTODIE If radios and newspapers around Kennewick were to blare :forth the news that 100,000 children were marked to meet with an immediate death in a designated tragedy, con sider the speed with which we would unite to fight the disaster so nam ed. There is to be death for this number of children, only instead of hitting at one time it will spread over a ten-year period. Are we still so keen to come forth to "battle or will we bide our time and take care of the matter later on? These 100,- 000 children are those headed for sudden death by traffic in the next ten years, and one of these children may be yours and one of the cars that strikes a child may be yours! The violent death visited upon Europe’s children can be no worse. Our last year's record wor auto deaths reached a total of over nine million. This is probably greater than the number of Britain’s dead and injured from air raids. We pick ed them off here and there in our country, with motors instead of bombs. Traffic pours down the road regardless of the death-rate. A heartache is equally great, cruelty equally unforgivable, when it is able to be prevented. ITSOUN'DS GOOD There have been many parents who have objected to the types of comic strips that are read by their young. Children were treated to a series of drawings and stories deal ing with kidnappers, shooting, rob beries, impossible situations and fantastically impossible characters. What could the parent do when the child insisted upon buying this sort of thing? One well-known newspa per eliminated such types of comics from' its pages and substituted a strip dealing with historical events told in pictures and with a story like interpretation. ‘Then comes a new magazine for children called “True Comics.” It is not like any of these '75 comic magazines that you have dreaded having your young sters read. It is given a different editorial and subject treatment, to the delight of old and young. The first issue deals with history of past and present, the life of Chur chill, adventures of Bolivar, the liberator of South America, story of the conquest of yellow fever in Cuba, of George Rogers Clarke 2 of the first naval submarine, of fron tier fighters. nad adventure of Lowell Thomas. Parents and teach ers are endorsing this magazine for its instructive and desirable reading for children. The advisory editors of the magazine include Virginia Weidler, Mickey Rooney, Shirley Temple, Gloria Jean. Another step we go in the right direction for worthwhile educational studies for young minds. gm SPRING A springtime of flowers, buds and bombs. but still a springtime! There lie those defeated nations burying sorrow beneath blooms. For though fire and shock and roar has wrecked the home and the spirit, still the earth throws up a bloom or two. Come to England the street vendor calling their wares, the blossoms. To horrified France will appear wel come loveliness. To lift hearts in Belgium, Norway and Holland springs the buds of scent and sweet ness. A welcome sight is the bloom of spring and a needed message to this sorry globe. If only the warm glow that flowers cast on hard hearts and sceptical minds. be shed to move Hitler or a Mussolini. May gentler the spirit of dictatorship. How can the earth stay cold and unwelcome to the breaking through of gold and rose and heaven’s blue? The peacefulness of the growing bloom which sends its sheets thru dark ground as it prepares itself for its new life! Comes the climb upward through darkness and dirt to sunshine and to add to the hap piness and joy of a wary people. This is the new spring, the new lift, the new life and the new day. We should be grateful here in Kenne wick for the small, unattractive seeds which will later burst into glory. Sad would we be for no planting? harrowing, sowing, dig ging and sweating. Unhappy if one’s effort to assist in the rebirth were to no avail, if one’s land was taken from him, his health pre vented cultivation. Torn apart with war, the nations of the world still sing a song in the spring. If only the streets of Europe were flooded with folk-songs of the merry souls, who weave garlands to celebrate the arrival of springtime. YOUR PRIV'ILEGE We like to .be stopped on the street by a Kennewick Courier-Reporter reader who comments upon certain editorials which either appealed or else caused disapproval. This is the kind of a reader to have, who will be open-minded and line up his opinion with someone else and then weigh each. A subscriber remarked that, so many editors wait until they see which the‘Gallup poll goes be fore he will come out with his sen timents. It depends upon which side has the bigth majority. We haven’t gone using the editorial page for free expresion, of campaigning for the home town, of citing other’s beliefs. We may not see eye to eye and it is probably best that we don’t. We don’t mean that we are on the right side always. just be cause we have the advantage of ex pressing our side to the most peo ple. But to be fair, to be free to discuss conditions as they seem, to get the facts right, to let the read er have his own opinion and judge for himself, that is the reason for the editorial. . There are in this country per sons who would like to see this country have the same type of gov ernment that Russia has or that Germany has. Not only that they are working to bring that sort of government about in this country. Why wouldn’t it be a splendid thing to deport forthwith, all persons who are so minded, to the countries whose government they seem to pre— fer. If they refused to leave and became citizens of those countries we might install them all in a nice up-to-date concentration camp with a southern exposure. Why tem porize with them? Why triﬂe with them? Let’s act now and have it over with. There are still plenty of people in this country who are satisfied with it to keep it the best country in the world. It is a wise person who is satis fied with reasonable success and can be happy and content with it. Places of power are difficult to at tain and are easy to lose. It re quires a. lot of effort to secure them and a lot of effort .to hold them, and while holding them, one has a. lot of worrying :to do. There is a lure and a fascination about raising livestock and growing crops that no one who has never engaged in it can understand. The farmer realizes something more out of his profession than the ﬁnancial reward. If he didn’t he couldn’t put up with the years of hard work and meager reward that is the lot of too many farmers and stock raisers the country over. you New and Used ~ CARS See 0. S.
