A suggestion comes to us re—
garding the involved wording and
intricate wording of tax forms
being simplified by calling in for
consultation such men whose busi
ness it is to clarify facts for the
public. The idea being to have a
few newspaper and advertising
men work on the reports sent to
the nation's hard-pressed tax pay
ers. Adding accountants and sta
tisticians to the legal minds that
have already ‘fixed’ the reports.
isn’t apt to be much of a solution.
only probably getting us more in
volved. To make reading matter
understandable for the general
_public is the job of the advertiser
and newspaper man. It might be
a pretty good idea, at least the
taxpayer couldn’t have it much
worse than it is now.
STILL WASTING

lesson that waste makes want has

been demonstrated through these
war years. We should have listened
to history in the past, heeded our
fathers who knew no such abun
dance or luxury as have we. Mil
lions of American housewives
have found difficultyin purchas
ing food although as a nation we
are far from starving. Yet, over
18 percent of all the food bought
lfor home consumption is wasted
‘and this amount alone would feed
Ithe greater part of our armed
‘forces here and abroad! There is
waste along the line that the
house-wife can’t help; from farm
through distributor to consumer.
An expenditure of lost time, and
manpower adds to the waste. But
this is no excuse for Kennewick
women to fail in the kitchen. The
lesson of waste in food is of
paramount importance. The one
of waste is effective in a bill of
fered in the New Jersey legis
lature that woud consider the
burning or destroying of waste
paper a crime punishable by a 3-
year prison term or SIOOO fine.
This is going some to punish for
wasting, a thing that should be
curbed without need of law and
fine behind it. So essential have
things become to us that we have
taken them as necessities that will
always be forthcoming. We waste,
toss aside, disregard, overlook, de
stroy, ustil we lose them, and only
then do we realize our abundance,
might end.
FARMER WOES
The grumbling of the farmer
persists in spite of the fact that
farmers received from crops and
livestock, double the income of
1941 and a third more than in
1942. The farmer has provided
for this nation’s food needs boun
tifully and he has worked under
very trying conditions as we have
felt the hand of war in all lines.
Yet the farmer has achieved the
greatest income last year of any
year. The average income was
SB3OO a farm. But, the farmers
zaround Kennewick win tell you
immediately that much of this‘
goes to buy aspirin tablets for
the agricultural headaches! He!
will try to explain to you gov
lernment regulations and restric
tions that he isn’t too sure about
himself. Ceilings and subsidies
are his problems. To keep his
son as a hand on the farm he la
’bors with thé draft board. To
get help to harvest he tries for
‘miles around and generally goes to
ithe government employment
.agency where he hopes to find
wworkers. Then comes the mat
ter of priorities that he can re
,place some needed machinery.
For his price on milk he has to
‘see an official for the subsidy.
There are more that the farmer
might tell you of his headache,
in spite of his increased income.
This business of farming is an
uncertain affair, with the weath
er of the seasons not to be guar
anteed or to find certain market
prices when he is ready to sell.
But 'the.farmer still produces and
will continue to do so. He feels
he is big business today, as he
is indeed, and that he has reason
to grumble if outside interference
hinders his production. ‘ , > ‘
