It’s high time this paper should
acknowledge the" help we have re
ceived in our self-imposed job of
sending the. sheet to the boys in the
service. Nearly a score of citizens
have‘ contributed cash toward the
steadily mounting costs, while-other
hetp has been volunteered and ac
cepted from a dqzen isourees.
The job of addressing the wrap
pers each week is a big one, as any-1
one who has relatives in the serv
ices can realize. Because of the
rapidly changing addresses, it is
impractical to have them made up
for the mailing madh-ine, so they
have to be typed each week. It re
quires more than an hour and a
half just to write the names. This
job has been takeen over, however,
and we gratefully acknowledge the
help. . 1

think. The boys all seem to appre-j

We are aware in Kennewick of the
great interest with which the young
men in our armed forces receive
their home town paper. Comment
reaChes us locally and nationally of
the appreciation of the boys in” ketJi
ting home town news. Many :paperm
send free copies to the boys, others
.can give reduced rates, but we are
‘glad to know, that however he gets
.it, the home .town publication. looks
{mighty good to Johnny Doughboy.
One chap says it is better, than get
ting a, letter from home because as
far as news is concerned, he gets
more of what’s going on in the
1 county. It is a tribute to the paper
:and every editor is going to try and‘
"make news as interesting as possible
and give as much of it as there is‘
_space. .
’ The weekly newspapers of the
Icountry are asked, in fact they ,are
mrged, to make an appeal to their
{readers for the cooperation in the
lscrap metal salvage drive taking
“place throughout the country. We
rare asked to stress the seriousness
of this metal situation and to ask
‘you to shoulder more of a responsi
bility in getting the scrap metal into
the machines of war production be-‘
p-fore winter sets in, before weather
conditions hinder the collection. The
reason we feel this message and!
.plea is due especially to the tact“
that Over 80 percent of the scrap
metal which must be collected from‘
homes, is located on farms in the
towns of weekly newspaper size.
There has been a lot of advertising
to bring forth metals from homes
and barns and fields from“ all the
land, but still it has not been enough
to supply the steel industry with
material. This is now the most im
portant item of collection before the
American people and since the ac
cumulation depends largely _on
reaching’the rural neighborhoods, it
isup-toou-rpaper-toag‘am urge
action. Just because snow and ice
retards collection it doesn’t mean
.'the steel iactory and furnace will
become idle. but they will i: they
haven’t any scrap metal. This town.
of ' Kennewick has always done its‘
share, and its response has always
(been to “keep ’em rolling’, so again!
they rise to a man to the call of
the scrap metal salvage campaign.

The first thing that Mr. Jeffery
the new rubber administrator, said‘
when he reached Washington was‘
that‘he did not know a. thing about
rubber. The lack of information
about the thing he is supposed to
administer Should not disturb Mr.
Jeffers. There are a. hundred others
in WaShingtOn telling the rest of us
what to do who don’t know any
moré, about what they are talking
about than does Mr. Jeffers. , So
Afar he is the first. to admit publicly
‘his lack of knowledge; .

I If William Jeffers, the new eyn
thetic rubber administrator, doesn’t
get “tough” enough to get some
action on the production of syn
thetic rubber in this country. we
should suggest that he be dismissed
.and there lbe put in his place any
one‘dof a hundred thousand private
, citizens who have had to give up
{their cars and lock them , m the
garage because a full year after
.it was definitely known the supply
;of rubber would be shut off, not a
single synthetic tire has been pro
‘ duced in a nation in which the per;-
formance of industrial miracles has
become a commonplace aifain
i We are predicting, in factaiwe will
stake what reputation we have as
a prophet upon it, that the sales tax‘
will be finally imposed as a means
of paying forthe'war. None of the
other means progpsed will do the
job as a sales tax.will do it. It
furnishes the broadest base for the
assessment of taxes and distributes
the burden more equitably than
any other plan yet proposed. After:
all other schemes and substitqu
have been tried the sales tax will?
be tried. Not that any one 3 clam:
oring for a sales tax. No one is.l
'but everyone feels that the 'war must
be paid for and the quickest and‘
:fairest way of providing the money
is the best way. ‘
The world ‘cannot blame Stalin if
when Hitler is turned back the Rus
s'ian troops should he sent. on a
march to Berlin carrying out the
same campaign at destruction that
has Ib‘een waged against Russian
cities by Hitler's armies. ,
Our guess is that Henry Kaiser
will build 'the cargo ships. He may:
not build a fleet large enough in
time to transport all the army’s
needs ‘but the time is 'coming in this
war when every ton of supplies,
munitions, and equipment laid down
on the battle lines, is going to count.
A man with the genius to launch
by a little matter of building a few
thousand cargo planes.
'me thing about the syntheticl
rubber program that for some rea-a
son no one has yet uncovered is,‘
what has been holding it up? There
must be a. bug under the chip some
place. This nation has a way of
getting big things done that has not
been reflected in the synthetic
rubber program. That will be an
interesting story when some one
with th knowledge has the nerve
to write it and print it.
In eight months of war in spite 0d
the fact mat She was my pre
pared for it, the United States has
sunk or damaged 325 japanese war
ships and cruisers largely through
air attacks.
