Building Permit
One of the largest-building per
mits ever issued in Kennewick was
written today to Roger Records for
SIOO,OOO. It was for 19 residences
to be erected on Alder and Wash
ington streets. Wbrk was started
on the new houses today. The
addition will include a separate ir
rigation system and an extension to,
‘the water and sewer systems in
1 that area. The houses will be com
‘pleted about- the first of August, it
is expected.
Records has also made arrange
ments for the purchase of the
rodeo grounds, which carries a
provision that it must be used for
building sites or will revert. . He
also has options on the vineyard
in the west end of the Olmsted
addition, the Ole Brue tract on‘
Washington street and a 12-acre
site on Nob Hill. He plans to build
another group of houses as soon
as he has completed the 19 now
under way. 'He has deals for sells
ing the other tracts to contractors
who plan similar additions;

Elimination of U—turns on the
three principal corners on the
main street of Kennewick was dis
cussed at the regular meeting of
the city council Tuesday night.

The MacLaurins’ home is in
Seattle, where Mrs. MacLaurin
has no difficulty in getting around
with Mitzie. She says that she
never has an accident that isn’t
a result of her inattention to the
dog’s directions. When such a‘
thing happens she says the dog
apparently feels grief-strickenl
about it, as she has been taught
that she must take care of heri
mistress at all time. Mrs. Mac-.
Laurin has had many experiences:
to relate concerning the sagacityl
of the dog, such as attempting to
indicate a curb which had Atwoi

KENNEWICK, WASHINGTON, THURSDAY, MAY 6, 1943
Processors Plead
For More Women
To Take Jobs
Townspeople urged to
join evening shifts to
handle local crops
I Kennewick’s food processing es
l‘tablishments are still up against
a serious situation as regards the
‘local help situation—particularly
‘as to women. There seems to be
plenty of men who’d rather work
in the plants than get out in the
fields, but the houses need -a whole
flock more of women.. And the
need for the local women is mostly‘
for the eveniing shift from 7 to 11.3
The houses are advertising for
help, pleading for local women
to set aside their personal feelings
and respond to the appeal as a
patriotic move, if nothing else. All
know the need for saving and pre~
serving all the food products
grown in the area. The emergency
is great, and the war effort must,
of course, come before all else.
fl'he situation is a trifle ticklish,
too, for the exhployers. The peo
‘ple who were brought to the coun
try to help out with the harvesting
of the crops must be given the day-;
long shifts. So the employers are‘
more or less fixed for that part of)
the work. However, for the shortl
evening shift they must rely on.
the townspeople. These they can.
not get in sufficient numbers, al
though they are deeply apprecia
tive of the help which the local
people, have already given. So
the cry is for more and more wom
en to help with the work. - I
While the c9Ol weather has been
on the side of the 7 processors, so
far, a warm spell will speed up‘ r‘e
ceipts and then every available
person in the community will be
needed to handle the work.
New T. B. Campaign
Begun in County
The Early Diagnosis Campaign
which began' with the tuberculin
skin tests early in the spring has
had the splendid cooperation of
‘the general public, according to
‘Mrs. Robert Johanson, executive
secretary of the Benton Countyl
Tuberculosis League. ,
The distribution of literature
and posters to stores, shops and
clubs and the gifts of two very
fine books, “Huber the Tuber,”
by Captain Harry Wilmer, U.S.N.,
and “An Autobiography,” by Ed
ward Livingston Trudeau, M. D.,
to all schools and public libraries
inthecountywasapartofthis
campaign. Several X-rays have
also been taken. .
Mrs. Johanson reported today
that under the new legislative
measure, after July 1, .6 of a mill
has been set aside for tuberculosis
sanatoria.
This will create a fund to help
tuberculosis patients to get proper
hospitalization and thereby lessen
the danger of infection to family
and friends.

Better Pictures
Being Booked
Movie patrons are beginning to
notice a better type of pictures
listed at the Roxy Theater during
the past week or two. The district
manager for the MicLStates
Amusement company, which has
Ithe Yakima valley chain of thee-l
fters nova, was in Kennewick thel
first ot the week. stated that the
old contracts were beginning to
run out now and a higher class
picture was to be booked in Ken
newick in the future. He was also
maldng arrangements for turning
oyer of the theater's admission
takes to the city, beginning the
first of this month. He said the
city would take in on an averagel
of SSO a week from the local thea- I
ter alone.
It is thought that the recent sur
vey of the town was in a measure
responsible for the company‘s de
cision to provide a better pro
gram for the local house.

On April 28 a group of 25 trans

by the cooperation of E. S. Black,
superintendent of schools who
loaned two of the school busses for
the purpose, and the assistance of
man Kennewick residents who
loaned trucks and contributed
their help. Many center residents
stayed up half the night and as-1
sisted in placing people in the
tents. l
Over 200 of these pemona have
been placed on farms and in pro
cessing plants in the Kennewick;
area and the severe labor shortagel
has been considerably alleviated.

pleased with the type of help theyl
are getting. and the new arrivals,
[after getting over their first
strangeness are finding that the
*Kennewick people are hospitable
[and friendly, and that there is
‘plenty of work here to keep them
busy until next fall when most
expect to return to their homes.
To insure that all workers are
supplied with full .time work all
farmers who have not already done
so should place orders with the
employment service office located
in the center. ,

added to the list of essential farm
commodities and each acre _of

Marine Says Combat
Duty Not Pleasant
Dear Mr. Reed:
Thanks a million for the paper,
I appreciate it very much. I’m
a long way away from home and
it’s sane good to get some news
from home.
The Marines and I are getting
along just fine. I’ve put on some
weight since I left the states and
I’ve seen a few things. We just
got back from some combat duty
in Guadalcanal which wasn’t very
pleasant.
News is very scarce here since
we aren’t able to write very much.
Thanks again for the paper.
Roy Zahn.
