Major Weil, a retired army offi
cer, who saw action in France in
World War 1, and who has been
active in the officers reserve since
that time, made a remark this week
which provides plenty of food for
thought. He said “I just wish to ask
you to consider what would happen
in the event of hostilities, if a bomb
were dropped in Seattle! Think of
the rush of people, army equipment,
supplies, etc. for the Security of the
east side of the mountains! Think
of the terrible congestion on the ex
tremely limited transportation fa
cilities! Yet the federal government,
represented by self-centered politic
ians who are working for re-election,
in selecting such unfavorable loca
tions for defense work!” Everyone——
army officers, Red Cross officials,
planning councils and civic author
ities are already laying plans for the
evacuation of civilians from the
larger cities to Eastern Washington
in case of war. Why should the poli
ticians make this necessary!
Towns in Eastern Washington are
beginning to get worried about the
centralization of populatiOn caused
:by the defense work. The young
men are ‘being called to the service
and the skilled workmen are attract
ed to the factories where his pay
rolls are being established by the
government on the scandalous cost
plus basis. 1
The towns are mganizing to put
' up a vigorous protest. And they have
' much that is right to holler about.
Many of the things needed in the
‘ defense work could be produced by
workmen in the smaller communi
ties. Housing, sanitation, policing
and other problems are worrying
te rbigger places while the smaller
cdmmunitm are worrying about
what to do Jor the lack of the popu
lation which is causing the conges
tion in the «big centers.
While the move is being started in
Washington, smaller communities
all over the country are having the
same problems. Perhaps the move
will become a nation-wide one, and
one which will cause the politicians
to change their attitudes a little—
especially in those districts where
electiom are not so far in the fu
ture. ‘
The decentralization of such na
tional activities is the proper movei
. from almost every standpoint save
from a political one. If something 3
is not done about it maybe the vot
ers will declare an open season on
the politicians and perhaps put
a substantial bounty on their scalps.i
The econoch warfare against
Japan will be extended rapidly. The
fist of supplies needful that this
country has furnished Japan will be
sharply reduced. Japan is going to
be made to feel very definitely that
.it is to her best interests to keep
on the good side of America: ‘She
can’t. flirt with Hitler and keep in
good standing with this country.
Almost one-third of the tote-1 area.
of the State of Washington is owned
by the Federal government, and
therefore exempt from taxation.
Since local government subsists al
- entirely on the property tax,
this pm a serious problem which
may even mean finally the inability
of local sen-government Ito exst in

All over town the street light
standards bear a two-hour parking
limit—to which no one pays the
least attention. It would seem just
as well to pull the things down
ae‘in. if no effort is to be made to
enforce the ruling. And indeed, now
there is no use of trying to enforce
the law. There is still plenty of
parking space available at almost
any hour of the day, and if the fed
eral government continues to drain
all the young men away from the
smaller towns and the expert skill
ed workmen to the larger centers
there will the still more parking space
available. Might as well take the
signs down.
Those women of Kennewick who
thought the cry raised over the lack
of silk stockings and the lack of
silk thread was just so much idle
talk and propaganda, are now fig
uring On how to conserve their pres
ent hose supply and hoping that
Santa has laid in his stock More
the mills halt production. There
will be many hosiery factories con-
Itinuing to manufacture hose for wo
men, but will use rayon yarn and
’cotton thread. Many American wo
men will be hard to sell on this
change and in order to induce them
to accept it the manufacturers will
perhaps use a campaign of “big
names.” A number of movie stars and
social-1y prominent women have an
dorsed some non-sensical styles in
the past. Why don’t they make a
push for cotton and lisle hose and
wearing them themselves just to
‘start the ball a-rolling? |
A good many laws have been pass
ed designed to redistribute the
wealth of the country and to take
from the haves and give to the have
nots. The ’law will help in some in
stances but regardless of the num
ber of laws passed there will always
:be those who never have anything,
can't keep a job, and are always on
the ragged edge. There is no substi
tute for good management in one’s
personal affairs no more than there
is a substitute for good management
in business.
Military men adhere to the belief
that Hitler will eventually defeat
RflSsla, pomlbly in September. The
campaign, it is believed, will make
impossble an attempt to invade Brit
ain this fall and winter.
Military men do not :believe that
Hitler will attempt an invasion of
the United States, but these same
authorities state that the Panama
Canal could be easily bombed and
destroyed from Dakar, Africa. One
well placed fbomb would render the
caan useless and make impractical
the transfer of any part of our navy
from one ocean to the other.
The schedule for the new income}
tax bill which is being worked over
in Congress and which is assured
of passage, provides that single per
sons will pay income taxes next
year as follows: On SIOOO net income
sls; S2OOO net income, $110; SSOOO
net income, $475; SIO,OOO net income,
SISOO. A married man with two
children will be taxed as follows:
‘On S3OOO net income, $11; $5,000 net
‘income, S2OO. These amounts are ap
Our Secretary of Agriculture pre
dicts that food will not only win the
war but will also write the peace
terms. And many a Courier-Report
er news reader :believes himlto to be
correct. With food rationing being
enacted in every European country
and with science finding it necess
ary for a normal human to need a
required number of calories in or
,der to live healthfully, it does look
as though the food question needs
ithought. For the good of ourselves
:and to help Britain materially by
’strengthening her food supply, we
should, according to the secretary,
include in our farm .produce those
that are especially necessary for vit
amins. Six million farmers in our
country are asked to give room to
needed fruits and vegetables, vital
.dairy products and necessary pork
{and bed. It means cutting down
space from corn, wheat, cotton and

\now is for everyone to practice econ

squeeze that is sure to come later
