There has been something in our
newspapers of most of the coun
tries that are touched by the war
but we haven’t read much of
its affect upon Spain. It has been
four years since Spain ended her
civil war and she didn’t have a
chance to relax from that before
she started in her heavy trading
with the Allies and the Axis.
Spain has rich mineral deposits
and has become wealthy due to it.
We understand that the Allies
have carried most of theirs “on
the cuff.” The Spanish people
are now paying enormous prices
for ordinary goods and extreme
prices for articles not easy to im
port. Many Spanish women wear
nylon hose, costing $lO, imitation
silk ones sell for $1.75. American
cosmetics and French perfumes
are available and coffee sells for
50 cents a cup at hotels. Ration
ing of food is necessary, however,
and workers get half a pound of
bread daily while every one gets
half a pound of meat a week. The ‘
same from all quarters, the needi
of food. I
The occupied nations have been
drained of all their livestock. Some
breeding herds that have been
years in the building have been
seized by the enemy and butch
ered. It will require years to re—
store assets of this type to a
An enormous pressure is going
to be brought upon the Allies to
yield from their terms of uncon
ditional surrender. This would
be a serious and unforgivable er
ror. Our soldiers won the last
war and our diplomats threw the
victory away by rushing into an
armistice. Let us sincerely hope
that there will be no recession from
the plan of unconditional sur
render following the Casablanca
conference. Anything other than
unconditional surrender would, in
our opinion, amount to a betrayal
to every man in our fighting forc
es and every real patroit on the
home front. We fell down on
the last job of this kind we had
to do. Lét us not be guilty of
committing the same error again.
There is some complaint that
Mrs. Eleanor Roosevelt does not
set a good example to the rest
of. the nation in the matter of trav
el these days. ‘The newspapers
and the radio pleadwith people
to not travel, to spend their va
cations at home. The first lady is
in a position to give subst’antial aid
to the stay at home - dont travel
program. There are too many peo
ple in this country merely looking
for an excuse to go galivanting
across the contient for their usual
vacation. While they never have
followed Mrs; Roosevelt’s example
in anything else they will in this.
Picnic spots around Kennewick
are unrecognizable due to the tin

Good, wholesome food is necessary for the
children’s health. They need their full quota
of the energy-building vitamins. No other
food offers as complete variety of vitamines
as good bread. See that the children are
given at least six slices every day.
And be sure to see that the bread is
'BEI.A I R ' S
which contains the necessary vitamines for
a balanced diet. Get it at your favorite

I There has been change in mili
tary uniforms during the wars of
this country. There has been
drastic alteration in fighting equip
ment through the years. Even
the orders, requirements, age and
food have altered with the times.
But there seems to be due thing
that remains the same as wars
come and go, our fighting men
want their tobacco. The indus
try has profitted greatly for the
product has gained in favor as it
passed from fad to fancy through
the years. Nicotine finds place
among the rank and file and fights
on every front today.
After the Civil War practically
nine-tenths of the men of both
north and south had taken up
chewing tobacco. This was mixed
as molasses and salt with the to
bacco leaves and then pressed into
small cakes which found a place
in the masculine pockets, and
some feminine, we understand.
Though pipes were common in
those days, gentlemen didn’t smoke
pipes. Cigars were manufactured
’but they weren’t practical for the
soldiers to carry about and since}
'matches were harder to get than‘
}today, it all made chewing to-‘
‘bacco the popular choice. Soon
ythe cake plugs gave‘way to a fine
‘cut chew which seemed to lend
more refinement to the nicotine
habit. Then. dawned the day of
cigaret for the soldier and. no
army will willingly let its men be
without cigarets it they can help
it. There have been many words
spoken and‘written against nico
tine, and the smoking habit, the
harmful effect and so on, but
there isn’t anyone in Kennewick
so opposed to smoking that they
Would countenance a campaign to
deprive our fighting men of to
bacco. So it goes through the
years and though the manner has
changed the popular :appeal is
still there whether it is chewing,
smoking a pipe, cigar or cigaret.
You can’t blame us for being
suspicious of the Kennewick man
who has meat for dinner and then
comes on} and hangs a horse-shoe
over his door.
They tell us no one is immune to
air sickness which we believe
after reading of the Berlin panic
following the Hamburg haminerg
ing. ‘
When it comes to wall-building,
a Kennewick reader wonders if
Hiter remembers how. he man
aged the'Maginolt Line.
Soldiers prefer cake to pie which
leads us to believe that the army
cooks don’t make as rich crusts as
Mom baked.
The fact that many soldiers
haven’t a chance to bathe gives
some Kennewick lads an idea of
sacrificing for their country in
the same way.
