Car Owners Must
Apply for Ration
Cards for Gas
Next week-end at six
schoolhouses; hours
are listed
Kennewick motorists, registering}
for basic mileage rations at school;
house registration sites on November‘
12, 113 and 14, must take along them
application toms, listing serial numg
bets on their tires and their car reg
istration cards, C. C. Williams, chair
man of the Kennewick 'War Price
and Rationing Board declared today.
Mr. Williams announced that 10-
cal schoolauthorities have arranged
for registration to take place in six
schools on the three days, from “two
to iiVe and from 7:00 to 9:30 on
Thursday and Friday and from 9 to
12 and one to six on Saturday at
Kennewick. The other schools will
have their separate times.
“The application forms are now
available at service stations and lo
cal War Price and Rationing boards
and should be picked up’at once by
any owner of a passenger .car or
motorcycle who does not already
have one,” Mr. Williams said.
“The form is simple. Most of the
infomatibn can be obtained tram
the vehicle registration card. The
most important information needed
to fill out the application, however,
is the list of serial numbers on everyl
tire which you or any relative living;
in your house, own for [that vehicle.‘
. The serial numbers, Mr. Williams
warned, are the numbers on the
tire walls. They are not to be con
fused with any raised numbers ap
pearing on the tires. In case the
serial numbers have been obliterated
>only the branch name of the- tire
need be listed. ' l
The Rationing Board chairman
urged car owners with more than 5
tires for each vehicle todispose of
these excess spires at once, since the
school house registrar cannot issue}
a mileage ration book to any appli-l
cant who lists more than five tiresu
Excess tires can be sold to the gov-j
emment through the local office of
the. Railway Express Agency. ‘
“Only basic ration books will be
issued by the school house regis
trars,” Mr. Williams said. “Motor

Propose Eloction to
Move County Seat '
To Kennewick
Population gain here;
loss at Prosser,
given as opportunity
' ,Cauing attention to Kennewick’s
{meant growth in population and the
decrease at Prosser, it was suggested
at today’s meeting of the chamber
of commerce that an attempt be
made to have the 'county seat
changed. Such a move would call
for a special election, at which 60‘
percent of the vote would ’be re-‘
quired to carry.
Twice before in the history of the
county ‘ the attempt was 'made to
change the county seat from Prosser
to Kennewick, and each time the
project lost 'by a narrow margin
although a majority was in favor
each time. The last effort came
in 1922 and lacked only 197 votes
of having the required 60 percent.
The proposition was complicated
then by having Benton City also en
taped-1n a three-way scrap. ~
At that time Benton City-was a
thriving little community, with a.
new hotel and some excellent sites.
Because of its central location in
the county in the days of horse and
buggy transportation, its location
had a great deal of appeal to the
voteers. ‘ l
The suggestion, however, received!
some enthusiastic support, advocates
pointing out that this location would
serve a greater number of people,
that present courthouse facilities
were inadequate and that following
the war there undoubtedly would be
a great amount of public works and
the community should be in posi
tion to take advantage or the situa—l
tion when it arrived. _
While it was conceded that there
were probably enough votes in this
end of the county to swing such a
proposition, cold water was thrown
on the plan by the suggestion that
itwasnotimeweng'agemlocal
controversies tending to divide the
war effort.
KENNEWICK, WASHINGTON, THURSDAY,
American Family Album
No Contests Show
In Three Special
Elections
Port, PUD and city
primaries mere matter
of form, apparently
No opposition developed in the‘
three special eleections locally and
it is presumed, without official fig
urese available, that all candidates
were elected. -
In the Port district election R. E.
Reed from the first district and P.
G. Richmond from the second, were
apparently elected although nearly
everybody in town got at least one
vote. I
The PUD cmmty-wlde election de
veloped' no opposition anywhere and
the nominees on the ticket were
probably elected. R. R. Woods of
Hanford was the candiate from Han-3
ford, Preston Raye:- from the Prosser
district and Guy Story from the
Kennewick district. ‘
The third by-election was the city
Iprimary. No other organized candi
dades were named and those who
had filed were declared the nom?
inees. The city geneml election‘
therefore, is apparently entirely unJ
necessary. There were tour comb‘
cilmanic vacancies, together with an
expired term for the office of city'
treasurer. H. E. Huntington filed
'for re-election and had no opposi
tion. . -
? In the first ward there were two‘
‘vacancia on the council. Roger
IRecords filed .for re-election while?
Joe Stradling filed for the vacanch
created by the resignation of George
Turner.
In the second ward Lawrence Scott
filed for rte-election, while Art Car
penter [filed for the vacancy left
by the failure of McKinley Des
granges to file in the third ward.
harry Oliver, now councilman at
large, filed for re-election.

iTruck Owners
yMust Secure
Special Certificate
Gas permits to be
issued by local
rationing board
Operators of trucks, bum and
taxis must have their certificates of
war necessity before applying to the
local War {Price and Price and Re
tioning Board for their mileegae ra
tions, C. C. Williams. chairmen of
the board, declared today.
“The certificates of war necessity.
issued by: the Office of Defense
mnspomum, form the basis for
our issuance of transport rations to
these commercial vehicles.” said Mr.
Williams. "When applicants come%
to the board they must bring with‘
Lthern these certificates, together?
with properly executed applicataon‘
‘for a mileage ration."
‘ Each war necessity certificatel
states the number of miles the ve
hicle for which the certificate is is-‘
‘sued will be allowed to travel dur
iing a three-month period. The cer-
Vtificate also states the number of
Igallons of gasoline needed to cover
this mileage.
‘ The OPA Rationing Board will de
termine the amount of transort
rations to be issued for the vehicle
on the basis of the mileage allowed
on the certificate. In no case is
the board permitted to allow more
gasoline than is stipulated on the
certificate.
