We sit with our fingers crossed
and wonder what will be the result
of communistic Russia allying her
sel: with democratic England. There
are some of our readers who charge
that Stalin is no better than Hitler
and Russia’s past history may give
them room for discussion. Perhaps
England isn't approving of Russia’s
past conduct but England is glad
of the help Russia can give. her
in this war. We consider the sit
uation with regard for our own
Interests, and though it is selfish, it
is the principle thought of most
America today. To do what is best
for the nation is our main concern
right now. If you are faced by ex
treme danger and something came
along to divert the attention of your
toe, giving you time to gain your
strength and fortify your house, you
would be glad of the distraction and
help, accept the assistance grate
fully since it has maybe saved your
life. 80 England considers this
fussian alliance. She doesn't stop
to argue the ethics and morals of
this Russian government. She did
n't do it during the first world war
when Russia was an ally. England’s
prayer has been for time. America
has asked tor time in building,
equipping and training. 80 Russia
comes in to battle and give England
an answer to her call for time—
If honesty is the best .policy why
Is it so hard to practice it the

A car expert recently made an at
tempt to find out the proportion of
honest garage mechanics throughout
the country. There has been much
said against repairmen who work
on the car and change -for unneces
sary and non-existent troubles. So‘
this man started across country in;
a. carefully reconditioned auto. EBe-(
tore entering a town :he would dis
connect a wire which left about half
of the car’s cylinders hitting. The
man’s secretary would drive the car
into a nearby garage where any sort
of a mechanic would know instant
ly what was wrong the minute he
looked under the hood. It wouldn‘t
take a second to connect the wire
and tell the lady that everything was
all right. There were 347 garages
that were tested and in 129 of them
the condition was immediately rec
ognized and fixed with only a small
charge or none at all. The other
places suggested all sorts of troubles
and remedies and cleaning the car
lnn'eator and installing a new clutch
were mow the suggestions. The av
erage charge was $4 for something
that 81 mechanics had 'felt wasn’t
worthai’ee atall! Therestofin
legrity found that mechanics in
towns of under 10,000 population
were more honest than in the large
cities. Most of us here have at some
time or another been “taken in” be—
cause or our lack of mechanical
knowledge. And most of us in Ken
newick patronize a garage where we
knew that we are getting fair and
honest service.
'lhe occupation of Iceland by the
United States in the interest of
hemisphere defense Is generally ap
proved. There seems to be a feeling
that if there are any other islands
of: our shares that are needed for
our dedense now is the time to take
them. It as a case in which posses
sion is a little more than nine tenths.
A lltle over a year ago Hitler
signed a. ten year nonaggression
pact with Russia. This should be in
teresting to those who seem to think
that a peace treaty might be entered
into with Hitler.

Eh? Kennrmirk Qlnurirr-Ewnrtrr
Often a fellow tries to fool him
self about his manly ufigure after he
reaches the forty mark. He closes
one eye at his mirrored image and
considers that he is carrying his
weight mighty well for his age. But
if he opens both eyes he generally
finds that he has lost weight in
his arms, legs and shoulders, but
has put a considerable amount of
poundage on his stomach. This fat,‘
they inform us, draws down on the
diame and hereby an insu-IJ
‘iofionr amount of blood circulates
through the vessels of the heart and
this leads to angina pectoris which
is an increasing heart complaint
among older men of today. The so
lution for men of forty and over is
to control this “bay window” or
“German Goitre” with a corset, as
suggested by a western doctor, who
ihas studied the subject of angina
pectoris. If you are considering the
purchase of a garment for yourself
and are loathe to walk into a store
to buy one, carefully compute with
angles and curves and then swear
your wife to secrecy before sending
her down to do the shopping tor you!
One of the most frequent prac
tices and one which usually escapes
our notice yet which is a danger
note, is parking the car parallel and
then getting out of it on the side
opening into the lane of traffic!
When you stop to think it over you
can remember all sorts of accidents
that might have happened to you‘
the many times you have done this
very thing. You are running a risk}
for yourself and you are endangering ‘
others as the line of traffic swings
hurriedly to one side when your
car door opens. That means dodg
ing and danger for another line of
travel. By using precaution and ob
serving F'IRST before you step out
you may safely proceed. But watch
the fellow who will park his auto,
shut off the motor, open his left
hand door and then BACK OUT of
the car without looking around.-
Sometime traffic may not swing
aside and then what?

H inflation comes as it did during
the World War, and prices get radi
cally out of line, it will be in spite
of everything that can possibly be
done to prevent it. Inflation is disas
trous :because it is always (allowed
by a pay day which more than takes
the profits of high prices and leaves
a train of wrecked and bankrupt in
dividuals and businesses in its wake.
Much effort and thought is being ex
pended to guard against a repeti
tion of the disastrous World war ex
periences resulting from inflation.l
In spite od everythmg that can be
done there will the a measure of in-‘
nation and higher prices this sumr

Every editor has had .the exper
ience of having some one come to
him after he has gotten into a. jam
and ask the item be kept out of the
newspaper. Usually it is fbecause of
a mother or sister or wife. Sometimes
the editor agrees not to print the
item, but no editor withholds legit
imate news without feeling that he
has betrayed his profession. The
wrong doer imposes upon hte editor
by making him the goat {or his mis
deeds. It is strange. rlsoo, how some
men never seem .to think of their
wife, or mother, or sister until they
get into a jam with the law. We al
ways doubt the sincerity of such a
plea. 'We usually feel that the fel
low is so yellow that he can’t even
face the punishment for his mis
deeds and publicity which without
any doubt is a part of the punish
Frequent warnings and rumblingsl
are heard that new highs in taxes
are to be experienced by everyone
in the near future to pay for the
defense program. Income tax rates
will be doubled and in most cases
trippled and new nuisance taxw and
excise taxes will be set up. Those
taxes will all the in addition to local
taxes which of course will be only
mildly affected by the cost of the
defense program. In order to make
the blow easier and afford a. means-l

It was four years ago that Japan
invaded unprepared and unprotected
China. China is still battling the in
vader. Japan is the country that it
has been said constitutes a. threat
against the United States and has
designs on some of its possessions.
The real reason why Hitler at
tacked Russia has not come to light.
but that he underestimated the job
is plain to every one.
It is being predicted that within
the next three months the country
will experience a transition into a.
war economy. Controls will be more
exacting and there will be more bur
densom restrictions. Even this
country isn‘t so big and resourceful
but that it will feel the burden and
as the one now before it.

At a recent convention which met
in the interest of home economics
with special regard to the farm fam
ily, a wardrobe was on display as
an outfit for a girl of high school.
The cost of it ran to $7.52 for one
year. This sample wardrobe with a
few changes and alterations, would
last for three years, he in style,
serve practical needs as well as suit!
the appearance of the wearer for‘
this period of time. Three years of
wear puts the $7.52 rate on the out
fit. The garments would :be made at
home, following simple patterns, us
ing mostly cotton materials, trim
mings with worn necktie: and us
ing spools, corks, nuts and wood
chips for buttons. It requires in
genuity and the knack of visualizing
—a touch of artistry and a trick
with the needle and thread. Women
about Kennewick have this and if
they are members of a family whose
net income is SSOO a year, they 'will
still see that their daughter of high
:cihool age looks as good as the next

Every community has one or two
old men, who in spite of their age,
make an effort to support them
selves by odd jobs and gardening.
Some of them pmoduoe remarkable
gardens, gardens that would be a
credit :to much younger and more
active men. They may be seen in
their gardens early and late. They
care and tend their crop, use what
they need and sell the rest. Every
town also has a. number of younger
men much more able who neverl
fort for themselves. They prefer to
let the WIPA and the government do
it all for them. They are much more
able than the older men who make
such a. commendable effort toward
self support. There should be some
system of rewarding those who make
such an effort and giving less to
those too lazy and indiffelent to
