Harold Lenz Promoted
To Rank of Sergeant
Corporal Harold W. Lenz, son
of Mr. and Mrs. Reinhold E.
Lenz of 612 Ave. E, Kennewick,
has been promoted to the rank
of sergeant at the Pecos Army Air'
Field where he is stationed. A
graduate of the Kennewick high
school, Sergeant Lenz was em
ployed as manager of the Shell
Oil Company, Inc., ’Pasco, before
he entered the army. He is mar
ried to the former Miss Carmen
Newlun of Pasco. .
Dear Mr. Reed:
For several months now. the
Courieroßeporter has been sent
to me regularly and I have had
considerable pleasure reading the
news from my home town. News
of‘ my school day buddies, who,
I find, are nearly all in the ser
vice somewhere, and news of
Kennewick itself which seems to
have “grown out of its pants” 'in
the past few months. May it
continue to prosper.
After reading letters in your
paper from some of the other
lfollows overseas, any experiences
’that I might speak of seem quite
uninteresting. Cadet life is far
from dull though, as a matter of
fact, we are kept too busy with
flying and ground school to have
any dull moments, and all of us;
fellows are anxiously awaiting
that day, about two months from‘
now, when the biggest thrill of
all will come to us as they hand
us those siver wings and ' gold
Like all the other boys in the
service, I too am anxious to 'get
this war over with and go home,
but meanwhile, I think the Com-7
ier is doing a splendid and patri
otic job in keeping us supplied
with news from home, free of
charge. . .
In closing I would like to thank
you for sending me the paper.
Best regards, - ‘
Still Passing Buck on
Federal Housing Project
i In spite of the urgency of the
situation, the local federal hous
ing committee can get no action
upon its application for some 200
housing units applied for some
time ago. The local committee has
had the backing of the project
authorities but state officials con
tinue to pass the buck and delay
granting the necessary authority
to start the houses. Unless prompt
action is received, it wi 11 be dif
ficult to have the units completed
before cold weather starts, it is,
thought. ,

Stores Not Sure
Night Opening
Is a Success '
Not enough workers
come to justify extra
costs involved
The change in the store hours
on Mondays is working out dif
t‘érently in the different stores in
town. M 01“ .91.- the grocery .mer:
lchants are about' to give up the
plan, stating that eight out of
ten of their customers are local
people and that‘ the war project
workers are very greatly in the
minority. - '
At the J. C. Penney store, Many
ager Lou Langworthy stated that
he had a whale of a.rush Mon-i
day, night of this week—too much, ‘
in fact to handle with the clerical
force he had. However, the two
preceding weeks he did practic
ally nothing during the evening
hours. ,
Most of the merchants believe
that the situation will improve in
sofar as the project workers are
concerned as soon as they learn
that the stores are making this
special effort on their behalf.
Some of the valley farmers are
greatly in favor of the plan. Es
pecially those living at some, dist
ance from town. They report that
with the shortage of manpower
they are compelled to work extra;
long hours themselves to keepl
their farms going and when com
pelled to come to town under or
dinary store hours they lose half
a day from their work. Under the
plan of keeping open one night a
week, they can get their week’s
supplies at that time.
Word was received by Mr. and
Mrs. Joe Osborne from their son
Joe, Jr., the first of the week that
he had arrived in New York City.
When he left the USA. it was
from the Pacific side at San Fran
cisco. So now he has been around
the world.
In active service somewhere over
seas is Ray La Rue, brother of
Leßoy word of whose death was
received this week. They are sons
of Mr. and Mrs. Lester La Rue
of the Highlands.

Local School
Authorities antiipate a
large increase, and are
making preparations
The local school situation has
got the authorities strictly up in
the air. Just what to plan for and
how to finance any major in
crease it such should develop. so
far is a matter of pure conjecture.
However, should there be a
math increased enrollment, at
considerable increase can be ac
commodated with certain remod
elling, particularly at the grade
school, Miss Margaret Reymore,
district clerk states. The old on
nex is being cut up into three
rooms and seating capacity has
been ”cured, which will more
than provide for the normal in
crease. However. a casual ob
servance indicates that there are
many more children of school age
in the community this year than
in previous years. Just how many
of these will need be accommodat
determined just at present.
The teaching problem is again
management. although Miss Rey
more claims the situation here is
no worse than in most of the
'scbool districts of the state. The
in seam to be the matter of se
‘curing places tor them to live.
Only one major change is being
made in the faculty so tar. the
clerk reports. Ray. Normile. who
took a year’s postgraduate work
at Columbia last year. is return
