Pasco Takes Drubbing
From Kenn'ewick Lions
Ordinarily. in these high school
football and basketball games the
contestants do not try unusually
hard for big scoreS. That is, if they
get a safe lead on an opponent. the
coach usually starts substituting
fast enough to keep the contest
somewhere near evenly matched.
This week's basketball game with
Pasco turned out a score of 410-?! It
was a real shellacking and in spite
of all the coach could do. the Lions
were out to avenge the drubbing they
took last fall on the football field,
as most of the baske'teers were also
in on that fracas. They determined
to wallop the Pasco Bulldogs by the
same score that their football defeat
totalled. They did it, with one for
good measure.
The game started out cold, with
neither team showing anything in
the first quarter. The Lions flipped
a couple in just to try their eyes and
the quarter was 5-0. The second
quarter. the boys began to speed up
a little and ended .12-0.
In the last half the Lions got hot
and began to flip ’em in from every
angle. Everything worked. Indi
vidual scoring was: Allen Smith, for
ward, 10; L. Amen, forward, 6; Asa
Hays. center, 6; Sid Brownell, guard,
.'. OpArthur Evett, guard, 5. The sub
stitutes aBo scored well with Gavin
Jones, forward, 6; Ed Garber, center,
2: Billy Kirk, guard, 3 and Preston
and Leibel, guards, 0.
Albert Belter. player manager of
the EB team was high point scorer in
the :3 game, which was also a Lion
victory to the tune of [19414. i
The Lions have now übeaten every
team in the valley league, winning
all live. Prosser is second with four
wins and one loss; Toppenish, 3-2;l
Wapato, 2-3; Sunnyside, 'l-4 andl
Pasco, 0-5. Kennewick will go to‘
Wapato Friday for the second half‘
of the schedule.
4- Port District Starts

At long last, the port district has

‘ The tanks are armed and equip-

ly designed as a mercy machine 0
rescue persons marooned by storms
and similar disasters when no other

Tax Collector to
Help Local Citizens
Nearly $150,000 more persons are
expected to make federal income tax
returns during the next 10 weeks
than during the filing period a year
ago in the district of Washington
and Alaska, in the opinion of Col
lector Clark Squire in Tacoma.
This large increase is due pri
marily to heavier defense industry
.pay rolls throughout the district and
to .the lower personal exemptions es
tablished by the 1941 Revenue Act.
Returns must be filed by March 15.
Every unmarried person having
gross income of $750 or more must
make a return, even though he may
not be taxed. Likewise, a person who
is married, but not living with hus
lband or wife. must file a return if
the gross income is at least $750.
xHusband and wife, if living together.
must file a return if the combined
gross income is $1,500 or more.
The collector warns taxpayers that
failure to receive a blank form does
not relieve him from filing a re
turn or paying his tax on time.
Forms may be obtained from the of
fice of the collector in Tacoma and
from zone offices. The nearest zone
office is in Yakima.
Deputy Collector Robert 1... Miles
is scheduled to be at Kennewick on
January 27th to advise taxpayers.
