OUR TOWN
Those of us who reside in the
smaller towns become sentimental
regarding the land right now. We
think in terms of returns from our
labor expended on the soil, be the
tract large or small, for now is the
growing time around Kennewink.
We relish the thought that the
streets are lined from end to end
with homes of folks we have known
mr many years, where stand
churches that have given us spiritual
aid through the lean years, comes
our children as they swing along.
the housewife’s nod and friendly]
greeting as she shakes the dust mop
on the porch. Here is the home of
our doctors and teachers, the chap
who has been selling us shoes for
years and our groceryman who
knows our likes and allergies. We
call folks by their first name for .'we
have known them by no other since
we grew up together.
There is the song of the city and
we wouldn’t want to do without it,
but the sweetest words are spoken
of the small towns like ours. our vil
lages. The passing of winter, the
beauty of the growing season is
more surely recognized in the small
er towns. This is Kennewick where
we prosper in spirit. We are daily:
more aware of the glory of life here
and go about our living and our
planting as though nothing would
disrupt this peace. To wait the fruits
of labor is the right answer of an
orderly and tranquil life. “What my
hanetownmeanstome”istopass
along the way with a greeting to our
friends, to watch our neighbor’s gar
den grow, to think our thoughts mid
the shelter of comfortable homes, to
shoulder the daily burdens that
crops and weather ask us to bear— -
we still are going right ahead!
MMORE'I‘REES
So closely related to man in its
characteristics as it can sleep,
breathe, grow, perspire, eat, digest
food and have family characteristics
as does man. That structure known
as a tree, that growth that should
be fostered and cherished as almost
important to .life as man himself. A
tree should be replaced when re
moved. The tree which bears fruit
for man’s enjoyment and health
should be nurtured and sheltered.
The tree that offers shade for man's
. rest and pleasure should be doctored
and blessed for “its beauty and pro
tection. The subject of the tree and
its place in our life comes up sel
dom enough in our ctvic projects to
enrich our town. We speak of many
ways of polishing off the welcome
mat on the front door step of Ken
newlck, but fail to figure that one
way folks remember a place is be
cause of lovely trees lining streets.
They remark of the shade, the fruit
orchards, of wooded tracts that are
parks and recreation grounds. Let
us remember the place of the tree
here at home.
Do YOU KNOW-

DOMESTIC ALLOTMIENTS
The sugar divison of the depart
ment of agriculture today an
nounced that 1941 domestic sugar
and sugarcane production allot
ments previously established would
remain unchanged. It was explained
that in View of the developments
in the international situation and
in the sugar market during recent
months officials had been consid
ering the advisability of increasing
1941 production allotments, but that
because of the availability of large:
reserve stocks in some of the domes-1
tic areas, as well as in nearby for
eign areas, it had been decided to
maiantain the allotments at their
present level. . 1
Payments are made to domestic
sugar producers under the Sugar
Act of 1937 who comply with their
allotment and who meet certain
other conditions. A production allot
ment is known under the Sugar Act
as a “proportion share” because it
represents a grower's proportionate
j share of the quantity of sugar need
ed by his area to fill its sugar mar-l
keting quota and provide normal
reserves The other conditions for
payment are nonemployment of
child labor, payment of fair wages
to field laborers, soil conservation,
and, in the case of growers .who are
also processors, payment of fair
prices for sugar beets or sugarcane
bought from other growers. .
