It Would be a serious situation
if our soldiers didn‘t today give
time to contemplating what hap
pened after the last World War
when the army returned home and
the country drew itself away from
the sight and sound of the rest of
the world, to let others plan for
the disasterous future among na
tions. Too expensive a lesson for
us in Kennewick to forget so soon!
It is vital that we acquaint our
selves with policies and programs
that will surely affect us in the
post-war years. A nation that
stresses its educational system as
do we should see to it that its army
has knowledge of the social, eco
nomical and political problems that
bind us to our brother nations
with ties of living in the same age,
on the same globe. where inter—
national understanding and coop
eration is needed to lay a corner
stone for over-all peace. The army
is putting the facts in a readable,
interesting form. They are issuing
splendid maps of war theatres with
vivid explanations, are having
company commanders give talks

REFERENDUM 25 is the most ambitious political
scheme Washington voters have ever faced. ‘lt creates
a vicious power bureaucracy. Referendum 25 1s a
dangerous first step on the road to Totalitarianism.
Work against it! Talk against it! Vote against it!

THE Pacific Northwest is so rich in resources that low-cost Public Power
can bring about a whole new era .in manufacturing. It will make it
profitable and practical to locate factories throughout rural areas to utilize
local raw materials. Electrically-powered, these factories will be clean and
pleasant. They will create new payrolls, ofler added earning opportunities
for farm families, and provide near-atohand markets for much farm produce.
They will also bring to rural communities such city advantages as better -
schools, libraries, hospitals, professional services, etc.
i .
32 To build for post-war prosperity requires us to examine every possible
resource. Research is revealing industrial possibilities in unexpected places.
. For example, many farm wastes can be utilized commercially to produce
.- glucose, alcohol, fertilizers, plastics, and other products. In addition to
- serving exiting rural industries such as creameries, canneries, cold storage
plants, etc., low-cost Public Utility District power will encourage private
enterprise to locate many types of manufacturing units in rural areas. , .

on active problems and using the
question and answer forums to in
augurate serious thinking in the
fighting forces, making for enliv
ening discussions. Army publica
tions are putting out readable news
stories, talks by platoon command
ers discuss Nazi tactics, the Nazi
soldier in training and background,
the German youth worry. Person
al accounts are given the boys by
veterans of battles with illustra
tions of the enemy’s technique, a
review of Hitler’s Mein Kampf,
talks on the Russian method of
warfare, pamphlets on our foreign
policy, reports of our War Pr6duc
tion Board, facts of the formation
iof the Chinese government, a sur
vey of japan and so on with many
icomprehensive articles of interest
and to make our soldiers take a
i part in thinking about war and
‘peace. It is our duty to give them
some heavier reading than the ev
‘er popular “funny books.”
We believe the proposal for a
year‘s military training for young
men between high school and col.
lege or between high school and a
job has many things to recommend
it. In addition to the fact that it
will provide preliminary training
to young men in the event this
country should in the future be
come engaged in another war there
is the benefits that will accrue to
the young men themselves. A
year’s training in the army pro
vides many physical benefits. It
develops coordination of mind and
muscle, awakens latent talents and
interests and gives a splendid
training in discipline that is valu
able throughout life.
Another 'reminder regarding
Christmas packages to be shipped
to men in foreign service: Discover
first what it is that men in the
particular field to which your
present is to be sent want, next
pack it securely. Mail sent long
distances under present conditions
takes a terrible punishment. Make
the package about shoe box size
but don’t try to send everything in
a shoe box. It won’t get out of the
country until it is all apart and its
contents scattered ‘to the four
winds. Wrap securely, address it
clearly and correctly and mail it
early. '
The feeling exists in the minds
of too many people that when a
financial burden is assumed by
federal aid that everyone is re
lieved and no one has to pay.
Straight thinking compels one to
realize that ‘a debt is a debt
whether‘it is owed by an individ
iial or the federal government and
that all debts are paid from the
same source——the labor and the
savings of the individuals. If this
fact could be held actively in mind
by everyone it would result in
more staight thinking and fewer
schemes to raid the federal treas
ury. ‘
All attempts to solve the youth
delinquency problem‘lead back to
the home. Most youthful delin
quency comes from homes that are
delinquent in the matter of rear
ing young people with proper at
titude and concepts. Trying to
solve the youth delinquency prob
lem by merely working on the de
linquent young people is like re
pairing a leaky roof by setting
utensils around to catch dripping
water. '
.The report is that to date nearly
10,000 planes have been' delivered
by this country to Russia. Most of
these have been flown across from
Canada and Alaska. There is no
discounting the value of this aid
to Stalin’s armies. Without doubt
it is the thing that has thrown the
balance of power in favor of the
Russian armies.
It seems difficult for the Amer
ican people to realize that paper,
a thing of which the country has
always had an abundance, is vital
ly needed in the war. Every com
munity in this country should
have some plan for saving and
collecting waste paper. A few
pounds here and a few pounds
there will result in an enormous
total. This is one way in_which all
of us can help with the war effort.
Following the close of the first‘
World War the government dis-1
posed of six billion dollars worth
of surplus war goods. Following;
the close of this war there will bej
seventy-five billion dollars worth}
of surplus material to be disposed?
of. ‘
The brilliant achievement ofl
General Patton in the invasion of
France should go a long way to
ward condoning for the slapping
incident in Italy. It also demon-1
strates that General Eisenhower is
’a good judge of men as well as a‘
good leader of men.
While we don’t hear much about
it, one of the biggest post war
projects is going to be the task of
getting people on a down to earth
basis after they have had a taste
of war industry wages.
Perhaps the reason why the hu
lman wolf gets into so many houses
iis that he very often has a fur coat.
\ Goering says that Hitler was
‘saved from assassination by Prov
}idence. Our guess is that if Prov
‘idence had anything to do with it
lHitler was saved for a worse fate
‘than merely being quietly put out
of his misery by a bomb.

\ ' ~ - Almost anyone buying your grapes this fall
L ‘ will pay ceiling prices and pick them up. [But
~ , - how about 10 years from now? What will your
- grapes be worth?
‘ The value of any farm product depends upon
the market. What the market for grapes will
be in 1954 is what will determine their value. .
That is what Church Grape Juice Company is
working on right now. We are building a mar
ket for grapes. A market that will exist for
years to come.
. .
We are persuading more and more peOpl'e to
try grape juice. They find it not only a good.
healthful beverage but like it so well they keep
on buying it week after week, month after
month, and year after year. '
To supply these people, we need your grapes
now. We need them so that we can keep these
people supplied with their favorite beverage
‘ so that they will keep buying it year after year. -
This is the process that will determine the value .
of your grape crop in 1954. This is why we not -
. only need your grapes now but will keep on
needing them year after year in ever increasmg
quantity. . -
