There are still many drivers who
have not entered into the campaign
(or slower driving to conserve tires.
In spite or the speed limit set at 35
miles an hour, of the explanation
of this necessity to preserve rubber,
still folks ride speedily on figuring
when they need the tires there Will
be ways of getting them. The Na
‘tional Safety Council makes this
suggestion as a way of helping. All
of us around Kennewick who find
drivers whizzing around our car at
about a 60-mile an hour gait, can
give him a three shorts and a long
on our automobile horn. This is,
as we all know, the Morse code for
the “V” for victory. Maybe if the
driving so fast is just carelessness
or from habit, your horn will shame
the driver into going slower. We
might try it and see if 'it will help
the situation. - _ ~ ‘

If the Benton County PUD com
missioners 'believe in popular gov
ernment, as we think they do, they
will listen attentively to the rising
tide of public opposition to any
drastic step by the district during
war tme. _
‘ The whole theory of PUD organi-‘
zation is that the commissioners
will represent the people of the
district, and will be responSlVe to
‘the wishes of the people.
‘ This is just the opposite to the
theory of bureaucracy, the notion
that “You give us the authority—
and we’ll do as we please.”
Two of the three PUD commis
sioners may be of the personal
opinion that the district should em
bark upon a long and costly con
demnation suit at this time. Andi
as individual citizens, they have.
a perfect right to hold such an
opinion. . 1
As public officials, however, they
have a duty not to permit per
sonal opinion to take precedence
over public opinion.
It is obvious to anyone who
keeps his ears open that the idea
or! a. condemnation suit during war
time is unpopular among the citi
zens of the county. Some are mare
outspoken than others, but the
significant thing is that nearly
all say the same thing: “This is no
time for it.”
The commissioners .owe them
selves and their constituents a re
sponsibility to rise above £1137 per
sonal qpinion or prejudice and
shape their action in the light of
what the people think.
A member 'of Congress came out
the other day against federal con
trol of man power. We don’t feel
that any one can say whether or‘
not man power should be controlled. 3
If it becomes necessary to control!
man power to prosecute the war it
should be controlled. To take any
other position would be indefenfible
and inconsistent. The boys who are
inducted into the service are con
trolled. They are told when and
where to go and what they shall do
when they get there. Merely be
cause of an accident of age would
exempt a man from the army would
not mean that his government, if it
needed him, could not control where
he worked and at what he worked.
