Some look at life from the point
of money, figuring the expense
angle and letting their neighbors
worry about the moral and ethical
branches. Society, as far as these
people are concerned, means what
they can make off of it or lose
by it. So if they will regard the
cost of killing and add their
strength to that of the humani
tarians who view battle in the
cost of lives we might put a stop
to war. When Julius Caesar went
forth to conquer the wars were
fought crudely and by the strength
of man and the awkardness of his
enemy. The experts tell us it
cost 75 cents to kill one soldier.
Time marched on and mechanized
was as the World War I made kill
ing one soldier cost 21 thousand
dollars. Today it costs 50 thous
and dollars for each dead soldier
and proving that war, to the
man who deals in money alone, is
too expensive to be pampered.
Caesar could have owned the
world on just what one of our
battles costs us.
It is the theory of the writer
that the town can be best built up
by the practice of its citizens of
trading at home. In fact it is the
only way in which a town can
be built. If we send our dollars
or spend our dollars in the big
town down the road we are going
to build the big town bigger and
rob our own town of the support
it needs. Merchants in the small
towns are having a difficult time
these days to keep things going.
They need all the business of the
community if they are to survive.
Whether the merchants of ‘the
home town come out of the war
strong and able to go on depends
on whether they receive the busi
ness of the community now. It
doesn’t help much to talk com:-
munity pride, and stand on the
side lines and cheer those who are ‘
trying to get the job done, under
trying circumstances, if at the
same time- we spend our money
with the big town down the road.
We give our own town lip service
and the big town our real help.
Hitler may be superceded by
Goering or some one else, but the
Nazi idea of making slaves of the
whole world is just the same as
it always has been. There has
been no change in this. The Allies
are not going to be fooled by a
false fact or .a new front. Nazi
ism stands for the same thing that
it stood for when it started out to
rule the world.
No one believes that the back
slappihg flatterer ‘is sincere, but
90 percent of the people like to
have, their backs slapped even
though they know the flatterer
doesn’t mean what he says.
The money spent by this gov
ernment during last year amounts
to $4Ol per capita.

Summer has almost ended and
with it the family picnics that ac
companied the season as _part of
the calendar’s plan. In spite of
rationing, thousands of Amercan
families picnicked and even if they
changed their location from woods
to home lots and porches there was
still the healthy and wholesome
enjoyment. Picnics wean the open
to us in Kennewick, and in that
jaunt to woods or the steps to
backyard picnic table, food tastes
differently just being outside. The
pleasure enjoyed by our ances
tors still lives in us, an appreci
ation of nature and a pride in our
ability to get along “roughing it.”
So until another time of family
picnics we put away our baskets
and thermos jugs and live in
We have written before of the
importance of advertising and its
economic pattern on our lives.
This has been the popular way of
business men to contact the pub
!lic and make 'it aware of their
industry and manufacture. The
bill for advertising in our na
tion’s newspapers and magazines
has been one to stagger, When
war gave certain reductions in
Igoods there was an idea that
’ perhaps national advertising
Iwould be curtailed to a great ex
‘tent..There is a change of wording
Igenerally that the readers in Ken
‘newick have noticed. Besides be
ing a means of instructing the
buyer of merchandise the adver
tiser now becomes of great value
in the defense. effort through the
pushing of bond selling, of recruit
ing more men and women for
our armed forces. There are the
public-spirited ads that deal with
salVage drives and promoting
them. Notice the ones written to}
instill added patriotism and appre
ciation by stressing the hardships
and valor of our men over seas.
And along with this type of ad
vertising comes the Selling of
goods, keeping up the morale of
the people by pfiering them what
is at hand and asking them to
submit with grace to reductions in
merchandise. Manufacturers are
keeping their names before the
public when possible in order to
keep their. place in the business
roster ofpost-war trade.
Some merchants in some sec
tions have sharply curtailed their
advertising on the plea that they
can no longer secure merchandise.
Such a practice is a mistake. There
isn’t a store of any consequence
that cannot get marchandise of
some sort. The thing to do. is to
advertise the merchandise that
the store has. Who knows some
one may want to buy those very
‘items. To quit advertising and
‘crawl into a shell because some
[items cannot be secured is plain
defeatism and is not typical of
the _ aggressive American spirt.

There goes into the education
of our young people, time, effort
and money, and it comes from all
of us. Students returning to the
classrooms all over our country
will not fail to take advantage
of this opportunity it they look at
education in the light .of time,
effort and money. We are en
gaged in war and our schools will
notice a differenceOin enrollment,
in reduced faculties, in limited
running expenses. Schools will
probably lay special stress on sub
jects of government dealing with
civics, principally. Economy will
be enlarged upon, the manage
ment in production, distribution
and consumption of goods, social
and political and home economics
all important enough to every
one of us. History should be
practically a required subject and
taught with the facts, not to build
up our democracy through any
thing but the truth, for it is the
truth in history that will make all
alive to the present and how to
clear for the future.
One of Shakespeare’s characters
said, “A horse, a horse, my king
dom for a horse.” The assumption
is that the gentleman of that day
was seeking a means of transpor
tation. such a call today might
come from one 'whose tractor had'
broken down or whose hunger for'
a hamburger had reached a fev
ered pitch. ' '
Premier Badoglio is doing all
for Hitler that Mussolini could
have done. He is holding off the
surrender of Italy until Hitler
gets his defense line built up on
northern Italy. The' Allies are
correctly interpreting the delay
and very properly are proceeding
with bombing the daylights out of
Italy. '. - . ‘ ' .-

We know of some Kennewick
women who have put their future
in the hands of fellows who would
not be trusted for a five-cent cigar
at the corner durgstore.
Mussolini keeps his name be
fore the public even if it’s only
in a game of hide and seek.
The fellow who built a motor
boat in his basement larger than
the opening to get it out, would
be a sure-fire hit on some Wash

Folks in Kennewick haven’t
minded having to spend vacations
at home because there wasn’t any
place else they could go.
A man in Kennewick says it has
been so long since we have heard
from the office, he wonders if
there is a secretary of labor.
We ’understand some colleges
will not allow girls to wear slacks.
It hasn’t been so long ago that
such a topic was not considered
proper and fitting .in public dis
cussions even.
A Texas woman found a dia
mond in a chicken. I some parts
of our state, a Kennewickian sug

Crashing into an old hcateau
