Speaker Says
Road Important
“With the exception of the Bur
ma Road, I would ‘say that the
Alaska highway is at present the
‘most important road in the world,"
stated Sydney R. Montague, for
;merly with the Northwest Mounted
police, who opened the Kenne
wickPasco lecture series Monday
evening in a colorful lecture on
“‘America Looks North.” '
Mr. Montague, as he proceeded
to point out the value of the road
in winning of the present war,
stated that even if the road were
‘to be discarded tomorrow and used
no more, the cost of building it
would still be a sound investment
:to our nation, because the use of
it turned the tide of war during
.the summer of 1942 and saved
‘Alaska from Japanese invasion.
‘Montague, who returned this late
‘summer from a trip over the road,
‘dealt lightly with the criticism
of great waste in the building of
‘the road, also with the criticism
that much machinery was discard
‘ed. “Certainly,” said the speaker,
1“I saw huge caterpillars discarded
‘in the ditch along the highway.
‘They were utterly worn out and
'the cost of bringing them out, as
scrap metal, would be prohibitive.”
‘ The speaker, a man with a
vivid and chaming personality,
ibrought an interesting bit of the
philosophy of the Eskimo to his
Ihearers when he told them that
‘the Eskimo believes that he dies at
‘night, when he sleeps, and thus in
dying leaves the cares of that day
behind him, and awakens to a
bright and new day each morning.
Mr. Montague made the statement
that no man could come back from
six months in the vastness of the
North without being a better man,
spiritually and bigger in his con
cept of living, than he ‘was when
the North accepted him.
The largest crowd ever to greet
a Kennewick-Pasco lecture series
speaker greeted Mr. Montague, the
most encouraging aspect of the
.crowd being that the largest in
crease in attendance was found
lamong the high school students.

Dies as Result of
Battle Wounds
Marine Gene Whittemore, son of
Mr. and Mrs. W. H. Whittemore of
Kennewick, died as the result of
wounds received in the war with
the japs, according to word from
the War Department Sunday. He
had participated in several of the
island engagements and received
the wounds which causd his death
in the attack on Pelielu, it is pre
sumed by the parents, who have
been following the war activities.
Gene, an exceptionally well liked
boy, came to Kennewick when he
was six years old and received his
grade and high school education
here. He graduated with the class
of 1941. He attended one year at
WSC before he enlisted in the Ma
rine Corps in 1942. He has been in
the Far East for nearly two years.

shock to the publisher of the local
paper, as Gene had been in and

}erator here for ten years or more.
