Memorial Day stands with special
emphasis this year as the symbol of ;
gallantry of those soldiers of the;
past and present who have served
this country in the true American
spirit of honor and respect for their
native land. Whatever was the cause
of battle, how many the years since
the banner was carried for a prin
ciple. Americans pay honor each
spring to a day set aside in com
memoration of our soldiers. No
greater plea for peace, no more pro
nounced verdict against war can be
uttered than to consider the pur
pose that brought about the first
Hemorial observance. While we wave
flags and hunting, spread flowers,
orate and parade to the day's heroes, I
we are all wondering why the brave
mould have had to suffer for the
wrongs of the misguided and the
selfish, the unjust and the cruel, the
power crazed and money mad.
Wars are blights on the pages of
history, yet history points out that
the daring “have not died in vain)“
for there comes from the smoke of
the battlefield a cleansing of pur-'
pose and a new spirit that strives tol
bring about peace with honor, peace
with Justice, an amistice for the
world. We have pledged to uphold
our government, to save her in the ‘
name of freedom for the genera
tribute to those men who have paid
with their lives as they march to
defend this pledge. f
In Kennewick we have not for
gotten loyalty, nor overlooked the
defense offered this nation and this
town. We are dedicating this day
to'thosemenofthe warspastand
are paying tribute to the spirit of
the soldiers of the present. There are
sacrifices to be made for' liberty and
we want those from the past and of
the present to know that Memorial ‘
Day is not an empty symbol to use, ‘
but a living, breathing. pulsing evi
dence of a nation’s respect and un
dying gratitude for defense to con
tutions of our homeland.

With the tremendous amount of
money going into defense work, it
means a greater demand in farm
produce nad the probable rise in
farm prices. During this past year
there was a noticable increase in the
farmer's income and with this he
has brought down his indebtedness
; comes with the knowledge that the
‘ farm mortgage debt in the U. S. is{
on his land. A note of satisfaction}
the smallest today it has been since
the year 1919. A farmer near Ken-i
newick thinks that due to the call
for increased production and bet
ter prices that some farmers are go
ing to run into serious debt to ex
pand their business, figuring that
the war will continue long enough
for them to clear up these debts.
But our friend suggests that the
farmer reflect upon the probable in
crease in the cost of all living, of
the foreign market being practical
ly nothing, and the wise farmer win
continue to pay off the old debts
and continue his present policy of
reducing his farm mortgages and
keeping his surplus for any higher
cost of living.
If the present trend continues 40,-

accidents during the coming year.
This is more lives than would be lost
perhaps during the coming year if
the United States were actually ac
tively engaged in the war agamst‘

about it. Radio speeches are made
against it. Columnists rail against
it. Front page stories appear in the

We believe that every one should
pay some tax to the support of the
government. The payment of taxes
tends to create a different interess
in government in the minds of the
individual. It is a wrong idea that
the government is an agency from
which to get something. The tax
payer has a sense of giving some
thing for the government he enjoys
that the non-taxpayer does not
have. Every adult should pay some
amount of direct taxes for the sup
port of his government, local, state
and national.
