April 2, 1914 at PO. at Kennewick, Wash., under act of March 3, 1879 100 K AHEAD, LABOR The labor picture is much bright er calls a headline and this is an aspirin tablet to Kennewick think ers who felt the picture was too dark for American-made comfort. The fact that there are two sides to every story makes us certain, even without the advice of those in the midst of it, that labor has rights and demands that must be met in order to provide harmony. The side of capital must have an audience as well. But during the discussion of strikes on defense jobs, the public in general seems to be more willing to judge against labor than for it. We are thinking in terms of our own skin, I guess. Perhaps if the labor picture is brighter it means that there are hopes for us, that we can get busy and produce to capacity for the maintenance of peace at home. Let labor troubles be solved by medi tation and be solved squarely, but don’t let labor trouble draw us into a fate worse than wages and hours discord, a fate that would make labor trouble look a bit childish—Hitler trouble is a worse death. .

Evnnrmirk (Enuripr-iﬁppnrtrr PAYMENT FOR MOTHER There is none who has built bet ter. sacrificed more, struggled hard ed than she whose name we praise publicly this Mother’s Day. In our attempt to live a useful existence, have acquired so many gains and prizes for success. that we finger our rewards and admire our riches with deep intentness and often mistake this compensation as what should have been coming in payment for endeavor. We sit mid the gains and tell ourselves it is what we deserve, payment in part for aims, ambitions, opportunities and dreams. ,If this is indeed our just desserts, then what is the payment due the uni versal mothers who have been the power and strength behind the man, who has through her self-sacrifice and devotion given him his first taste of gifts and instilled in him the idea that for such inspiration and service there is no need for payment. We have accepted the worldly be longings and felt we earned them for it is the time and trouble put into the business of living. But what will a mother ask in return as her pay ment? i There has never been a, period in history when mothers declare a. strike against love. a war on devo— tion, where they refused to dedicate their patience .to motherhood. where they aimed only for the return pay ment from their families in appre ciation. Of all the victories and tributes to be paid no Mother today demands your loyalty. To enter into the spirit of the day one must come willingly and understandingly, with peace of mind that such devo tion will triumph over the world. We wear a flower for her, we send her our love, we pay tribute in the hope that we have made our‘selves worthy of such loyalty and— affection. This is her payment. ‘ WALK AGAIN We each pride ourselves on being able to get along without some of the modern conveniences if we had to do so. Many we aren’t willing to forego, ones our ancestors would not know how to use and we don't know how to do without. Scarcely does a lovely day roll along in Ken newick that some of us remark we are missing a lot by being so de pendent upon our automobiles. We speak of how we formerly made our legs useful instead of valueless as they seem to be today. We feel they are necessary for transportation and get out the car to drive to the cor ner grocery, drive the children to a near-by school and find count less reasons for using the auto when the going could be made easily on foot. ‘We depend upon our motors and rubber tires mare than any oth er people in the world, so science offers the jalopy, we gather the price for gas, build a garage to house it, make the payments to keep it, and off we go to join in the' traffic pa rade. . We should get tuned up to trust more to our legs, by roadside and on the city sidewalks. Not only would we be healthier, but if the cost of gasoline should happen to ad vaneetoﬁOcentsagallonasitdid in. Australia, we wouldn’t miss put ting the dust cover over the auto and taking to our feet. Let us start hiking for practice, just in case! i No bucking or stollingl Fluid Drive transmit: power through oil—for the smoothest, quietest performance you ever experienced. Try it now—today! MORE FUN There will probably be friends of ours in Kennewick who will put on a long, sad face and insist that, from the way things look now, they won't be having much fun this summer. They insist the future won't hold much in the way of a good time. for they can’t afford it. Perhaps we won’t have the amount of pleasure we have had other years. but other years we had a billion dollar’s worth of fun. and in round numbers that is a heap of enjoyment! Americans spent more than half this amount a year for movies. Of course it wasn’t all fun for some of the movms we saw weren’t worth the admission price. Bowling alleys come in for admost fifty million dollars a year and this pleasure is on the increase. Maybe you helped to spend some of the forty million at the race tracks and in the country’s pool parlors. You no doubt added your bit to the fund for professional baseball. which comes sixth in, the lineup of pleas ures. You are going to have some fun this summer when last year you helped to make the figure a bil lion dollar’s worth. The movement to require a cer tificate of health before a marriage license is issued is slowly growing in favor. Each year the demand in creases and a new state is added to the list of states having this re quirement. The laws governing mar riages are not strict enough ‘or broad enough. Too many persons unfit for marriage and procreation are issued permits to marry in many states. The result is that in these states the insane asylums are all overcrowded. Instead of stopping the evil at its source the people of these states permit the unfit to marry and bring children into the world to be a burden upon the tax payers as long as they live. The prac tice is not unlike the situation of having a mad man stationed upon a bridge who would throw into the stream every one who attempted to cross the bridge, keeping busy a. crew of life savers further down stream fishing the victims of his folly out of the stream. Sounds silly, but it is exactly what is being done in many states today. A mawkish sent iment stands in the way of the ex ercise of what is obviously common sense. Estes Transferred to So.

Prices for some basic commodities have already gone up.- Increases in Safeway’s retail prices on these items reflect thé‘srise in wholesale cost, over which Safeway has no control. . It is a fundamental Safeway policy to earn onlya small profit on each sale. Safeway pledges that during the period of war emergency it will not change this policy; and that in the future. as heretofore, it will make every effort through improved meth ods to reduce distribution cost-«the difference between what the farmer gets and the customer pays. You will always be able to buy from Safeway at the lowest prices available anywhere. Consumers may assist materially in preventing unwar ranted price increase by continuing their purchases on a nor mal scale. There are adequate supplies of food stuffs for every American. Hysterical buying which strips retail and wholesale stocks creates artiﬁcial scarcity, which pushes prices to abnor mal levels. . Machinery exists within the government to control pro. ducﬁon, storage and release of commodities, imports, exports. quotas and prices-«if it should become necessary to employ these methods to protect the economic welfare of the country. ' Safeway further pledges complete cooperation with the governmental agencies and with farmer producers in all efforts to stabilize prices; discourage profiteering; and maintain order‘ ly facilities for food distribution.
