Though women have entered
largely into industry because of
the scarcity of man power. we
do not share the fear that some
seem to have that women are go
ing to replace men in industry in
normal times» With many young
women, work in industry today is
the result of their response to an
appeal to their patriotism to step
into the breech and serve. Its
glamour is dramatized. The wom
en have done a fine job'—in many
instances a better job than the
men could have done, but under
their visors and grease spotted
uniforms they are still women, and
their biggest career still continues
to be that of a home maker. The
woman in them, will, as soon as the
emergency passes, cause them to
be willing to trade the lathe or
the welder’s tool fbr the brooml
and the dust map as mistress of
their own home. I
We can’t ‘agree with the city
fathers about making a four-way
stop 'on the forner of First avenue
and Cascade street. It’s unde-1
niably true that that comer needsl
protection of the strictest kind.
It’s the corner most used by the
' school kids and the loss of life
of a single one would more than
justify any special effort put forth
for their protection. . The main
point of objection is, to our minds,
that other measures would result
in greater safety. For instance
' ‘ well defined traffic lanes across
the street at that point, we think,
would be more effective than the
present stop signs. Of course very‘
strict enforcement would be neces-1
sary to see that there were no vie-1
- lations—and the absolute limit in
' fines levied for violations. I
There’s a couple of civic ex
penditures which the city of Ken
newick certainly has had full val
ue for its money. One of them is
. the so-called pavement on the
main street. This rough surfacing
is an accumulation from many ad
ministrations. ~ It, has cost prac
’ \tically nothing and that’s just
about what it’s worth. It' should
all be torn up and replaced with
modern surfacing. Of course this
cannot be done in war time, but
following the end of the war this
would be a grand project for the
' city to take over"~ Another thing
- is the concrete sidewalk system.
. For years Kennewick has been
. noted throughout the valley" for
~ its almost complete sidewalk cov-‘
_ erage. Now,‘ however, with the
expanding residential areas, .new
. needs are appearing. Soon more
walks will be needed and they
- should be built to conform with
1 the present system.
How the mighty have fallen!|
And we aren’t speaking about dic
tators, either. For years Kenne
wick’s reputation was built upon
the wonderful quality‘of. its su
perb strawberries. This year there
are, all told, just 16 acres of this
wonderful crop in cultivation on
Makes "hard to gel" funds

cheese for appetizing main
dishes. Makes satisfying and
delicious puddings and other
desserts. .

this side of the river and but 25
on the other sidé. At one" time
solid carloads of berries were
shipped from ‘Kennewick and its
fame spread over the entire north
ern part of the continent. In those
far-off' days, berry pickers were
shipped into Kennewick to help
harvest the crop, and business
men and other citizens would get
”up in the middle of the night to
help the farmers “smudge” their
crops when threatened by a frosts
The crop was so large that a spe-I
cial box factory was established‘
here to make the hallocks for the
luscious fruit. Strawberry festiv
als were common and everyonel
had a hand, in one way or an
other, in the harvesting. I
I We wonder why the, city does
'not enforce the two-hour parking
limit on the main drag. Now that
traffic has increased, it would
seem the proper time to start en
forcing this regulation. The legal.
machinery is all set up, the signs‘
are posted on the posts and all that!
remains is the matter of enforce
ment. A few arrests for violations,
and the congestion would largely
settle itself. It does seem peculiar
that people in a small town insist
upon parking _smack in front of
their favorite grocery, while they
think nothing of parking, half a
mile from the stores when they
go to a city.
It is rumored that Hitler is pre
paring'to use gas on the Russians.
This, in spite of the assurance that
if gas is loosed on the Russians,
England and the Allies will loose
it on Germany. In View of the
fact that vast quantities of gas
have been accumulated by the Al
lies ready for distribution, and in
view of the fact that the planes of
the Allies now reach ‘every part
of Germany, only the fact that
Hitler feels that he has been
whipped, would prompt him to
take the chance. If Hitler resorts
to gas the war will end sooner
than it otherwise would, because
Germany cannot survive the gas
barrage that will be laid down in
every city within her border. 7
If the japs thought they could
intimidate the American fliers by
their announcement that they
would put to death American fliers
who landed on Japanese soil, they
were mistaken. The announce
ment of their murder of American
pilots is going to cost them dearly.
It has roused a new fighting spirt
and from now on out the deadli
ness of the American attack is go
ing to surpass even the wild fan
atacism of the‘japs.
No one can tell another how
many bonds he should buy. That
is a matter that each one must
answer in his own conscience.
Each one should go the limit of
his ability. We are not :going to
do enough in this matter until we
have all done our very best.
. . . it's enriched!

Lack of Vitamin "A" Cause
for Poor Vision _
One of the earliest signs of too
little vitamin A in the' diet is
poor vision in dim light. Diffi
culty in finding a seat in a theatre,
in'adriving at night, in reading and
sewing, are all common complaints
of this disability. Eye strain,
itching and burning of the eyes
may also be noticed. 1
Mild cases of vitamin A de-‘
ficiency are quite prevalent, say
noted nutrition research workers
and medical authorities. This
deficiency appears among people‘
who seem perfectly healthy, e§-‘
pecially children. 1
Dry, rough, and wrinkled skin‘
aften indicates a shortage of vita-‘
min A. Usually there is an ab-l
sence of sweating, and pimples
appear on the arms, legs, abdo-i
men, back and neck. 1
To combat this shortage of vita
min A, yellow and green veget
ables are the best. There is nearly‘
40 times more vitamin A in the;
green leaves of lettuce than in‘
the white, inner leaves. 1
Yellow corn contains more thanj
five hundred times as much vita-1
min A as white corn. Eggs, milk,‘
butter, cream and cheese are other
excellent foods which help to bring
this ' vitamin up to the daily re
According to the latest infom
ation 'an abundance of vitamin
A will not insure against catch
ing ‘colds, but will shorten the
length of colds and cut down the
frequency of complications.
The vitamin A requirements for
a normal adult can be supplied
by a daily allowance of a pint of
whole milk, two ordinary size
butter pats, 1 egg and an average
serving of a leafy green or yellow
vegetable. It is not necessary 'to
include exactly these articles of
food, since many others rate as
gexcellent sources.

A survey recently completed by
the Federal Crop Reporting Board
indicates that farmers of the Unit
ed States. will plant 10,000,000
acres more in 1943 than were
planted in 1942. The largest in
crease is among the com grow
ers who will plant 6,000,000 acres,
bringing the total corn acreage
up to 96,827,000 acres, The next
biggest increase is in the three
mail oil producing crops—soy
beans, peanuts and flaxseed—
which will account for an addi
tional 3,300,000 acres.

It’s easy to think that you’ve done your duty when you have pur
