About the State

Let Us All Plan to Attend to
Our Own Business in Future
"The election campaign just
Closed had one beneficial effect
it gave us an education in the
matter of government which would
not have been otherwise possible.
Its greatest lesson perhaps is that
all public officials are sensitive
to the beliefs and ideas of the pub.

answer for their conduct.
Faults of Officials
Due to Attitude of Voters
Conduct of those in elective of
fices is a reflection of the temper:
and opinion of the voters and if
things are done which are not to
the liking of the majority, they
have the power to correct these
matters by really telling the prop
er officials what they think about
the situation. V
Jt will be two years before we
again vote on members of con
gress and legislators and four
years for other officials yet we
have found that we are the last
word and in matters of legislation
and pending acts of congress and
our legislature we should keep
the good work going by making
Our wants and ideas known to
those who make our laws.
Newspapers Try to Keep You
Informed on Pending Matters
Your newspaper, this newspa
per, recognizes its obligation in the
situation and attempts to bring
you the meaning and possible ef
fect of pending bills. As writer of
this column we feel our responsi
bility too, and will in the future
even more than the past, give you
our analysis of many matters
which are under consideration.
A case in point is the federal
school subsidy bill, being S. 637,
which will be up for consideration‘
in the national congress in a few
days now. This bill would allo-
Late funds to every state for school
purposes and in turn would al
locate important federal control
over our state school systems. This
bill has been prevented from
passage in the senate for some time
now. We will report progress
when it comes up for consideration
again.
State Legislature Will
Control Our Millions
While we know the situation in
the state senate insofar as its po
litical makeup- is concerned, and
its presiding official, in the house
of representatives we only know
that former speaker Reilley of
Spokane is not- a member and that
there will be a new speaker and
a new organization for there are
many new members this year.
Two' months from today the
1945 session will be upon us, and
much pressure is sure to be exert
ed on both houses for bills 39‘
propriating large sums of money
from our balances for many things,
good and not so good. .
We Can Do More
About State Appropriation
In the matter of state lsgisla
tion almost everyone knows his
legislatorsand while promises are
fresh in our. minds this is a 800':I
time to prepare to support our
members in doing the proper thing
with reference to bills appropriat
ing .these moneys.
The greatest service that we can
perform it would seem, would be
to keep the large balances on hand
for the day when the wars are
won and every dime and more
will be needed to assist in the past
war works that must be started
promptly.
Our Position Unoxcelled
In Nation
Washington’s position is not ex
celled in the nation in the matter
of natural resources and future
opportunities for the men and
women who will be returning from
military service and work in the
war plants: Let us be in a fi
nancial position to take full ad
vantage of this situation. 0
While arrangements are not yet
complete, we plan to bring you
the best information possible on
the most vital legislation as it is
proposed in the legislature. We
can do no more, we should do no
less.
