To Combine Local
And National -
Chest Drives
KenneWick’s' annual' community
chest drive this year will be com
- bined with the National War Fund.
The local budget has been set
at S6OOO, half of which is to go
to the national organization and
'the remainder for local use.
. The «National War Fund is a
combined contribution to 17 agen
cies which this country is spon
soring. Included in the list of
beneficiaries are: USO, United
Seamen’s Service, War Prisoners
Aid, Belgian War Relief, British
War Relief, French Relief, Friends
of Luxemburg, Greek War Relief,
Norwegian and Polish Relief,
Queen Wilhelmina Fund, Russian,
China, Czechoslovak, Yugoslav;
Refugee Relief and the United
States committee for the Care of
European Children.’ .
The Kennewick chest is caring
for the . same seven beneficiaries
' as have been listed in previous
years. The budgets in each case
have been increased, however, so
instead of ' the usual $750 quota,
it has been upped to an even
SIOOO. The biggest increase in
- amounts from the chest will be a
doubled item for Boy Scout work
which is rapidly expanding in this
' area.
The other item of S2OOO is for
the new recreational program.
Federal authorities are planning a
huge program for this‘ purpose
here, requiring a budget of some
thing in the neighborhood of
SIO,OOO, of which the community
is supposed to raise at least S2OOO.
Trained directors will be sup-
plied for the work and suitable
'-equipment provided. Juvenile de
linquency is increasing so rapidly
; that this method is being adopted
to combat or counteract it.
Letters will be sent to the usual
contributors again this year, the
‘committee hoping to have them
in the mail early next week.
Aside from the UsUal_ contribu
tions from the firms, each per
son is being requested to con
tribute at least one full day’s pay
to the chest fund;
The Inter-City Ministers Asso
ciation will meet Monday morning
at 10 in the ministers chapel of
the new USO building at Pasco.

Paint Highlands Cow
On Hallowe’en Night
While not much material. dam
age was done Hallowe’en, never—
theless the kids did do some dis
concerting tricks. For instance, a
gang of them kalsomined a cow

discomfort and the chagrin of her
owners. Piles of ties were laid
across the highways and such
stuff. However, Chief Kershaw
j’caught a carload of boys from
Pasco, made them either lug the
ties off the streets or get turned
over to the navy officers. They
chose to work. '
