Some of us in Kennewicki
haven’t recovered from our incomei
tax headaches as yet, and to men-‘
tion the subject may not be exactly
an aspirin tablet, but it is perhaps
a relief to suffering to know that
we might be worse off. Take one
of those so severely taxed Euro
pean countries where Hitler has
placed his order for production.
In occupied countries the eco
nomic picture is so black that
there seems scarcely to be any
system of economics at all; The
loss of life has been terrific and
now with this forced to labor for
Germany edict, living is a con
tinuous tax in those countries.
Croatia, Hungary, Slovakia prob
ably felt they were on the winning
side when they ‘took up’ with Hit
ler, felt they would be tasting the
sweets of victory. Under German
influence the living costs in Cro-*
atia have been raised 400 percent,‘
taxes tripled in Hungary and “a
100 percent levy put on any luxury
in Slovakia. This just gives us an
idea that our national taxation
headache might cause more pain
and throbbing in other countries
where the effect will be more
keenly felt. That family who has
a son fighting for us, probably
met the income tax willingly,
praying that the money needed to
wage a war would speedily be
collected to put an end to this dirty
business and bring that boy back
to his home again. We paid our
income tax hopefully, that these'
revenues will successfully and fi
nally be the cure for our illnessl
Fear is beginning to be felt that
not enough attention and plan
ning has been put on the food pro
duction program. The defense
program has been given the major
share of attention and the food
production program has suffered
as a mlt. The fear is that if
farmers must resort to inexperi~
enced help they will not be able
to produce as much food as was
produced last year. It has be
come evident that plans for the
rasing an army, equipping and
transporting it should be consid
ered along with the problem of
feeding it. All are equally impor-i
tant. Leaving the food production
agencies to take what help is left
after the other agencies are sup-n
plied is going to cripple this branch
of our defense set-up. |
With the advent of shoe ration
ing the women who uSed to like
to wear shoes with their toes
sticking out of the end may get
even more liberty in this respect,
the heels also may begin to make
themselves visible.

{g4 ""‘ I ' In
A hearing has been called by
government agencies against Hen
ry J. Kaiser, West Coast shipbuild
er. The subpoena states that he
is charged with 21 violations in
regard to the manner in which he
has acquired materials for build
ing his ships during the past six
months. As a result Kaiser, who
has done more, perhaps, than any
other one man to help this na
tion arm against the enemy, must
wnaste valuable time and money
and energy to defend himself
against the government in a hear
ing. The general comment by
other shipbuilders is that any 'man
who would onely average five er
rors in a month in dealing _with
the present bewildering mass of
regulations is something more than
a wizard. -It is to be regretted
that it was seen fit to bring this
action at this time. It seems to
us that the only job now is to win
the war. If we have a tweedle
dee dee or a tweedle dee dum to
settle with a shipbuilder, let’s set
tle it after the war. In the mean
time lets use such brains and timei
and energy we have to build ships}
Submarine losses to our ship
ping have become a mapor prob
lem. How big a problem the coun
try does not realize for the reason
the facts cannot be given without
giving aid to the enemy. Not
only are the losses serious but they
are going to become more so as the
3fury of Hitler’s wolf packs in
‘crease. So far no hundred per-1
cent effective way has been found
to combat the submarine. Hitler is‘
turning out submarines at the rate
of 30 a month. It is said that he‘
has turned his attention for the‘
time being from the production
of planes to the production of sub
marines. His purpose is to stop!
shipments of munitions and food‘
to our soldiers and our Allies. In
spite of the big losses of valuable
ships and materials through sub
marine sinking the Effort to put
them into the hands of our soldiers
and the soldiers of our Allies must
continue. If the sinkings reach
as high as 50 percent we have got
to send twice as many. This is
one fight we’ve got to- win.
There are still too many people!
who are not taking any part in
the war effort. They are going
on in about the same way they
have gone for years; They should
wake up and find a place in the
war effort where they can do
something definite to help. They.
are going to feel better for hav-‘
ing done so when peace finally}
comes. This war, in spite of the‘
fact that ~ some do not .seem to;
realize it, is everybody’s war. 3

No citizen in Kennewick is too
occupied with relief work, busi
ness and household tasks, to over
look the annual spring clean-up
month. Since you paid the tax on
that property, keep it up, as -a
credit to your pocketbook! Look
to your house as that precious
holding, owned or rented, which
is your responsibility and know
that the dwelling represents to the
outside the character of its in
habitants. War does not lower
one’s pride in his town or his
home, war increases it. We aren’t
too busy to keep clean, exert en
ergy to tidy and brush up around
the yards, remove rubbish from
the alleys, reduce fire hazards by
disposing of waste in garages.
We enjoy living in pretty sur
roundings, to see streets kept up,
lawns and gardens picturesquely
stretched out to the side. Spring
clean-up is observed in towns like
ours all over this land, folks have
pride in their spot in the sun.
Property and equipment need care“
and thouh it is pretty difficult;
right now to get certain parts‘
and pieces for such work, still we
jmust keep the home front in ship
;shape order. There are trees to
trim, bushes to clip, fences to re
pair, all right under our nose.. Let
us clean-up, fix-up, paint-up as
we have done each year. We want
things in Order, our homes, church
es, schools, barns, yards, so we’ll
make Johnny proud when he
comes marching back again.
The other day Shipmaster Hig
gins was on the stand before the
Truman investigating committee
in Washington. After the commit
tee had finished their questioning
Higgins in an 'agg'ieved tone said:
“There is one question you gen
tlemen didn’t ask me and that
is, is there any surplus man pow
er anywhere?” He was told to
consider the question asked.
“There is,” he said, “in Washing
ton, D. C.”
It is one of the maladjustments
of our economy that it is" thrift
and industry and frugality that
are taxed and not idleness and
waste. The thrifty, industrious
man is taxed out of his savings to
support the lazy, inefficient wast
rel. It will be a smart economy
that, can make this adjustment.
Eighty thousand Russian women
went into the forests of Russia and
cut and hauled wood that kept
Moscow from freezing to death. In
Leningrad every wooden house‘
was torn down and used for fuel.
We give the item ”to show that
what some people in this world
are willing to do in this fight.

Whether we like the Russian form
of government or not we can’t lose
sight of the fact that they are
fighting our battle now. They are
holding the Nazi hord at bay while
we get ready. If it were not for
the fight put up by Russia, Hitler
would be in North Africa and
Great Britian and the Sharnhorst
and Gneisenau, great German bat
tleships would be aiding Japan.
It’s a good thing to think about.
