Recent petition by a: resident for
another bridge across the irrigation
canal brings to mind an improve
ment which the community should
be giving some serious thought to in
the very near future. There should
be no bridges anywhere in the city
across the canal. The canal should
be carried under the street crossings
in syphons—or perhaps not just
across the streets but clear through
.. town. Eventually this will be neces
é sary, or the ditch itself will need be

bench surrounding the town.
There are a few Biblical words
from David which come as a source
of help to those who need solace"
“I will fear no evil” is a strong‘
statement and needs clinging to‘
with determination when the daily?
going is rugged. Worry is one of
our worst headaches today and sure
ly today there is much we might
worry about. One can’t get away
d‘rmn shadows of planes and ships,
troops, death and privation. Peo

talk in Kennewick that society
will never regain its stand in edu
cation, science, industry and so on,
as before the war. Most citizens
have faith that we will move on
and come out better for the burn

When an editor continues a sub
scrfier’s name on the list after his
subscription has expired it is evi
dence that the editor trusts the sub
scriber and believes he will pay as
soon as he can get to it. No editor
could have any reason for sending
his paper to a man whom he felt
didn’t want it, or‘ whom he did not
believe would pay for it. The sub
scriber should be equally fair with
the editor. If his label shows his
Motion has expired and he
does not desire the paper to con
tinue coming to his address he
'abould can up the editor or drop
inm a postal requesting that the
paper be discontinued. The fact
that a‘ whscriber continues to take
the paper from his mail box is evi
dence to the editor that the sub
scriber wishes the paper to keep on
coming to his address.
Noting the statement that one
percent of the American men wear
might shim, a midwestern editor
wants to know who did all' the
moping around necessary to dis
m that intimate fact.

I The American Red Cross is asking
for funds with which -to continue its
good works. It shouldn’t take an
editorial to awaken anyone to the
worthiness of the American Red
Cross, it doesn’t need our words of
praise for your unanimous approval
of its benefits. It shouldn’t need
printer’s ink to put down in blaCk
and white what keeps the Red Cross
, able to pour its blessings on the sick
, and dying, hungry and forelornw
.homeless and destitute. What it is:
{doing or our fighting boys today it
did yesterday and will do so tomor
row and tomorrow and tomorrow—
IF you will help :by contributing
ito the organization. They ask for
{so little in comparison to the uni
,versal good. they create. Your
‘ dollars become food for starving
children and milk for a motherless
Vbabe, a sweater for a chilled old
Iman and a shawl for an aged wom
lan, blood for a weak marine and a
Ibandage for the wounds of a soldier,
}a robe for a convalescing aviator,
a letter home and a light is each
dollar you give.
There are constant drains on the
purse, times when we' all say ‘what
next’ and mean it. But of all calls,,
never, no NEVER, disremd the
plea of the American Red Cross. No
need to stress its works in war and
in peacetime where nature deals in
floods and fires. You are aware of
the deeds of its organization. Ask
your soldiers if you aren‘t convinced
of its needs today, ask a neighbor 1
who has received help, ask a friend
who has worked hours in a produc- .
tion room. But that is unnecessary
—-just ask YOURSELF for you know .

world's wounds. Be a part with your -;
heart and your dollars. r
and MARIN'I‘S are busily enlisting
women and girls in their service
and throughout the nation the tem
inine word is “go.” These women
in service carry their natty uniforms
well and are justly proud of their
appearance. Their training in vari
ous branches to make them eligible
for defense plans of the govern
ment gives them added reason for
pride. Through them men are re
leased for active duty which means
that these feminine forces play a
major role in providing the country“
with fighting men. In many of
the branches of labor studied and
performed women are proving more]
skillful and dexterous than men‘
formerly used here. These recruits
are having an opportunity to study
in fields never opened to women
before. Just ask them how they
like it! More power to every one
of them and' our blessings. '

1 Well, it hit and even hit harder
than most'of us imagined! We
allude to the rationing of canned
and frozen fruits and vegetables and
of some dried ones as well. We
expected to be cut down in our
purchases since that is the purpose
of rationing, but most of us didn’t:
figure it would be quite as strict‘
and binding. What of it! The!
buyer is sitting down to list her.
need, checking with the slip which
shows how many points per can,
seeing that her daily menus and her
ration book cooperate. She will
alter her past methods a bit, letting
the points influence her in making
out the shopping list. The plan will
cause difficulty at first and meals
will be hard to line up in order to
stay within the bounds but just giVe
her time! The dining table will
carry as fine a meal, as nourishing
a. dinner with enough to satisfy
the appetite, as ever. Of course we
have lived too much opt of cans.
Now we are going to change tac
'tics with‘ the family appetite at
stake and please them with more
fresh vegetables. Heretofore the to
matoes, peas, corn and beans were
put up for our convenience by
famous brands in shining tins and
opened by a turn of the wrist and
can opener, removed to heat in
double-quick time. Now it will take
more time to clean carrots, string
beans. shell peas. We’ll raise our
corn and tomatoes in the back yard.
Since commercial growers are stick
ing to the essentials if we favor .
cauliflower, asparagus and iceberg ‘
lettuce, we’ll have to grow our own. '
But we are going to be sure to plant
more for canning. Wives of Kenne- ‘
wick insist on this. So although we
may seem hard hit by the point sys
temwe are going to recover and no
doubt improve our characters by
being more resourceful and certainly
more appreciative.
_ What wouldn’t any of us give for
just the tiniest peek at what the
future holds in store for us in the
next six months or a year! Could be
that one of the most profitable agri
cultural sections in the state would
be transformed to a strictly . indus
trial area, very greatly rto the per
sonal advantage of all of us. In
a world of changes, perhaps ours
will be the greatest wrench of all.
Tout ultimately we'll all be the
gainers. we think. ,
From Representative Baboock’s
'report of the action of the legis
lature, it begins to look as though
the long plugged-for North Bank
highway is again on the state’s
road map» Perhaps the military re
quirements will force an earlier
completion. than any of us have
dreamed about. From' this view
point, it would seem greatly to the
state’s immediate advantage to com
plete the route up the river, where
the road was originally planned.
Hamid Willmsen’s quotation from‘
General Sherman sure was rightu
especially as it applies to the people
in the northern part of the county?
But a large share of the worry'and
uncertainty‘ conld so easily have
been avoided. A simple explana-‘
tion on the part of the authorities
to the residents of that section
would have prevented all the hysy
tria and ill feeling which seems to
have been engendered over the proj
ect. As soon as the people begin
to understand the scope of the al
iair they prove themselves as patri
otic as any other people in the
entire country. It’s merely that they
don't understande-and why this in
formation—even as much as is ap
parently permitted—could not have
been given them at the beginning”
is hard to understand. Most troubles
are due to misunderstandings and
when all know the cimnnstanees;
the trauma: iron out so easily us
ually. But this is war—and in war
individuals do get hurt.
More practical, we think, than
sending city men to the arms would
be to furlough young farmers and
give thecitymenjobsinthearmy
back of the lines where they could
do necessary work to support the
army. The average city man, unless
he has been raised and trained
on a farm, isn’t much help. It will
take all the farmer’s time to teach
him how and what to do. 1
