Mexican Crew
Helps a! Church's
A crew of about fifty Mexican
laborers has been working the
past week in the Church Grape
Juice vineyards, according to a
report made today by Production
Mgranager Larry . Newsone. They ‘
were a part of 'the three th’ouv
sand odd which had been shipped
into this territory to help out with
the harvesting of the crops in this
area. They are.stationed at Walla}
Walla and Milton and were brotl
there primarily for the harvesting‘
'of the pea crop. Because of the;
lateness of the season there, the
workmen had been idle.
To secure the crew it was ne
cessary to provide transportation
both ways and Mr. Newsome- se-i
cured the use of one of the‘
local school busses to transport:
the men both ways-each’day.‘ and
week’s work enabled the company
to catch up with the weeding on’
the vineyards. 3

'Jimmy Mokler‘ and
Jack Ray Join Navy
James Mokler, son‘ of Mr. and
Mrs. James L. Mokler, 840 Ken
newick avenue, and Jack Ray, son
of Mr. and Mrs. William Ray, Rt.
2, Kennewick, were enlisted in the
navy recently. Both young men
were 17 years old. They were fur

from Kennewick to Spokane where
they were given their final phys

oath on June 28, it was announced
by K. J. Husby, Sp. l/c, U.S.N.R.,

1 These young men like many
others prefer to enlist in the
branch of service of their choice
lrather than wait until after they
are 18 for selective service.
Reports coming back from men
enlisted praise the training and
the new life in service, the good
food and the fine experiences they
are having as blue jackets in Uncle

More Than 150 ‘
Pictures of Men
In Service Printed
Local paper featuring
' pictures of men in
each week’s issue
For more than a year this paper
has been teamringxpicturea of;
local boys in the several branches
of the service. About 150 pictures
have already been printed and we
have on hand more than twenty
more yet to be printed. And this
list is by no means complete.
There are many more from this
district whose pictures we have
not yet received, but will no doubt
be available as soon as we begin
to catch up with the cuts. ‘
The “cuts” are engravings which
are made from the pictures. They
are the printing plates from which
the picture is reproduced in the
paper. This engraving is a special
process which is not used in most
of the smaller printing estab
lishments, although the metropoli
ton papers all have their own
engraving plants nowadays.-
Briefly a camera is used to take
a picture of the picture upon a
sensatized sheet of zinc instead of
the customary film or glass plate.
In the process a fine wire screen
is‘ placed over the lens of the cam
era and then the zinc plate is etch
ed in an acid bath rather than “de
veloped” as in the case of an or
ldinary picture. These zinc plates
are then mounted on wood or metal
‘bases, making them exactly type
,high so that they can be used in
‘the newspaper type forms. The
{little lines of “dots” often discern
'able in therpaper are the “screen”
‘through which the picture is taken.
} Our aim is to have, by the end
iof the present conflict, a complete
file of pictures of all the boys in all
‘branches of the service from this
immediate area. Then, when peace
is finally declared, we expect to
print them all in one big edition,
giving with each picture a com
plete list of the man’s war activi
ties, when he served, what engage
ments he was in, etc. This should
make a valuable souvenir for ev
ery family in this entire area.
In the meantime, it is our ex
pectation to print at least two pic
tures in each issue of the local pa
per, together with such informa
tion as may pass the censors.
! If “your” service man’s picture
has not yet been used, be sure to
see that we get one some time in
Ithe not too distant future. The pic
‘ture will be returned uninjured
after the engraving has been made.

Chamber lo Plug
For Convalescent
Huspilal Here
Need in 'area growing
With possibilities for
establishment growing
Crowded until patients are being
put into the halls at the hospital
in Pasco, the Kennewick chamber
of commerce was moved this noon
into another effort to relieve the
situation. Last year an effort was
made, Witt;h the cooperation of
county heal officer R. W. Ripley,
to secure a hospital for this side
of the river.
In vestigation by the federal
authOrities then developed noth
ing, as the acute shortage of build
ling materials and hospital equip
{ment prevented any new projects.
ENow, it is thought, this critical
;situation has been somewhat re
lieved and there are definite pos
sibilities that something may be
accomplished by a renewal of the
efforts. .
l The present proposition is to
‘secure at least a location for a
convalescent hospital for this 10-
‘cality. This would relieve to some
extent the congestion in the Pasco
hospital, even though the operat
ing and other equipment was not
obtainable for the local unit.
A special committee -was ap
pointed by President Amon Muel
ler to look into the possibilities
and get some action‘ if at all pos
sible. ‘
The opening of the two hos
pitals—one of which is already
completed—on the Hanford pro
ject would not be of any particular
relief in the local situation, it was
reported for none but employees of
the duPont. company would be eli
gible for service in them.
There seems to be a general de
mand for hospital. service on this
side of the river, especially since
the advent of the new project
nearby with its attendant increase
in the local population. As soon
as the critical stage in the war
effort has passed, every effort
‘will be made to interest federal
and state authorities in establish
iing an institution here.

Sr. Mr. and Mrs. Claude Babcock,

Sg. and Mrs. Eugene Babcock were

Kiwanis tb back effort
to receive adequate
help _at peak periods
The local Kiwanis club will lend
every possible aid. to the Yakima
Valley Organization toward har
vesting the valley's food for vic

noon. All towns in the Yakima
Valley from Prosser to Wenatch'ee
are members of the orgnization
which is attempting to enlist local
help for the harvesting of the sev
eral crops as they are ready.
The movement is sponsored by
the farmers and processors. a small

nancing the project. The charges
for the service are small. ranging
from one cent per ton on potas
ltoes, tqas high astour cents per;
‘ton on grapes and other fruits.‘
according to the report made by;
Bill Miller, who was interviewed
by the management of the organ-l
ization. .
Complete cooperation by the
businessmen of the community was
one of the requirements. Mr. Mil
ler told the clubmen. He also stat
ed that the organization was not
too anions to include Kennewick
h its setup for the reason that in
Kennewick such movements had
never received the required co
operation trom the businessmen.
As a matter of fact, such objec
'tion was raised at the meeting
lTuesday. .
The club, however, voted to find
out how the grocers themselves
feel about the situation and to be
