THANKSGIVING DAY
The early refugees to these
shares, thankful for a haven from
dangers past, grateful for those
blessings of opportunity found in,
their new land. gave us our firstl
Thanksgiving Day, as far back as
as 1621. Not just for a successful
harvest, the proud results of their
labor, but for many other reasons
did they raise their prayers. They
had come from various countries
to a strange soil, hopeful of build
ing new lives, determined to con
quer this vast wilderness where.
with the help of God, they would
freely and steadfastly erect a
foundation, for the house of gov
ernment to come. Their Thanks
giving was devoted to faith. This
has outlived them and today, at
a time when comforts and safety
even such blessings as hope and
courage are strained, Kennewick
again comes to the observation of
Thanksgiving Day, and considers
the bounteous harvest in its indi
vidual lives. Inasmuch as those
Pilgrim Fathers laid the comer
stone for this democracy, we who
followed, are certainly continu
ously grateful for the privilege,
and are surely willing to guard the
rights invested, most diligently.
This is a blessing no war can erase,
we shall see to that ever faith
fully. ‘
Humility has not been professed
by enough, but such was necessary
in formulating the original col
onies. Universal love has not been
indulged in enough by the ma
jority, to have proven itself ef
fective, since man has permitted
intolerance through prejudice to
overcome his good judgment. That
was another of the attributes of
the early Pilgrims. Harmony and
Unity must be added to make a
nation great, to work for the good
of all. None of these conditions
have changed since 1621. Have
the people themselves?
There is great significance to
today’s Thanksgiving Day, since

the evils of bigotry, cruelty and
poverty have been felt by a
sorry world this past year. But
for these things which we can
not help, we will not aggravate
by adding to them through lack
of appreciation of the profound
blessings enjoyed by this nation,
by the people of Kennewick, and
our deep gratitude we are de
termined to maintain through the
year. Thanksgiving every day,
since every hour we should be
aware of those material and spirit
ual goods offered each of us.
In Kalamzoo, Mich., a city of
55,000 people the merchants are
financing a free parking lot “for
shoppers only" according to the
United States Municipal News.
The lot will cost 60,000 and will
~~acommodate 400 cars in the
heart of the Kalamazoo business
district. It was financed by spe
cial assessment against business
property which was levied with
the approval of local merchants.
The lot is well lighted and is
equipped with drinking fountains
and comfort stations. There is no
charge for the first two hours
parking.
The original manuscript of Ed
gar Allen Poe‘s “The Murders in
the Rue Morgue,” forerunner of
the modern detective story, sold
at auction recently for $34,000.
The Ford motor company it is
reported plans a new low priced
post-war car. Information is not
yet available except,that Ford will
spend 150 million dollars on post
war plant expansion and retooling.
Some idea of the expense of
conducting a presidential cam
paign may be gained from the fact
that a wide broadcast over a single
broadcasting chain costs 15,000 for
30 minutes. Added to this there is
the several hundred or thousand
to pay the cost of the regular tal
ent held off the air while the
speech' broadcast is on.
THE CLOTHES PROBLEM
To bolster feminine spirit. keep
ing fit and fashionable has been
mentioned as beneficialto all con»
cerned. A recent dispatch from
Ceylon tells of what can happen;
to morale when the clothes prob-;
lem gets beyond help. In southm
ern Burma, cloth is so scarce since‘
they have had no imports for two
years, that in some instances an
entire family will have only one
sarong, and so they share it among
themselves, wearing it on alternate
days! In other cases, village
belles have committed suicide be
cause they had no clothes to wear.
And still over here we have our
trend of fashion, changing with
the seasons, our ladies cosmetic
display as varied and profuse as
lever, the shoe closet Haunting its
;numbers in many styles and col
‘ors in spite of rationing. No Ken
‘newick- girl need bewail her lot.
But haven’t you heard some wom
en say, “If I don’t get something
‘new to wear I think I’ll die”?
{BEING SENSIBLE ‘
} We admit we were worried
‘about the young men of under
‘draft age not entering college this
‘fall, but 'instead, marking time
‘before military service by work
ing. The civilian student figures
he might have a semester in col
lege and then breaks up the course
by donning his uniform. The
war job also offers an attractive
salary. But even so, any time spent
in college is that much nearer
a goal when peace comes and the
student returns to the campus. An
educator suggests .that college
gives a boy something to think
about as he sits in an army camp
or on a‘ ship and recalls those days
back home, something to' plan to
wards. ‘lt is encouraging that
many 16 and 17- year old high
school students heeded such ad
vice, have decided to get what ed
ucation is possible, however short
it may be until ,they are called
to serve their country.
PACIFIC GAINS
As we read of each advance
in our hold on Japanese islands
in the Pacific; we more fully real
ize how man ,overcomes distance,
due to our progress by air. That
which was weakness shortly after
Pearl Harbor has become great
strength today. What seemed
formidable and unequal then, in
the way of equipment and men,
has been overcome. Look today at
those atolls where fresh troops
and veterans of early fighting are
forcing the japs to defeat. Our
progress is bringing us closer to
our gag], we areknocking on the
front act of Japan. The- price
has been paid in blood-since our
advance first started 16 months
ago. As we press on,’ as we out
fight the enemy, we grow ' en
couraged, but Ken'newick will not
be overconfident and not let up
in buying War Bonds-and hold
ing them, until the courage and.
fortitude of these Pacific warriors
of ours bring us final'victory.
The earlier hours of darkness
makes it' even more apparent that
householders should leave their
porch lights on. Many are burn
ing them all night for protecton
and emergencies, while an in
creasingly large number are burn
ing them during the early hours
of darkness. There is a lot of
good sense to the idea. We are
glad to see it spreading. '
It is estimated that upward of
$50,000,000 is spent in the cam
paign in a presidential election
by all candidates {or the office of

This man Guy LaFollette, who
writes our special column “About
the State," specializing on the
doings at Olympia, is filling up
his space this week with a moan
about the terrible threat of a 300-
foot weed patch along the pro
posed federal super highways. We
think he’s a little off the beam.
Washington takes great pride in
its highway system and if we have
a 300-‘foot right of way, it'll turn
out to be a 300-foot beauty spot.
for that’s the way we do things in
Washington.
CAN YOU RECALL?
To the brave goes the praise
when will power was the re
quirement. needed to undertake the
initial rides in the early autos.
The first president to ride in one
of those “contraptions” was Theo-1
dore Roosevelt and the stirring
event took place in September“
1902, probably the fall air bringu
ing strength for the trip. In Hart-1
’ford, Conn., the specticular scene‘
was enacted, with a horse-drawn
vehicle following the presidential
car, for eny emergency! An ed
itor who wrote of the occasion
ldid not realize our chuckle today
when he put it, “Roosevelt dis
played the courage which is typ
ical of him.” It is far from 1902
when so few automobiles were
on the road and those folk who
did venture courageously forth
Icarried with them a Blue Book
Traveling Guide for directions.
Consider your modem highways.
intersection signs, detour routings,
‘motor clubs, stop and go signals
and then the early “Go 2% miles
to red barn. Turn right. Go 4
miles to covered bridge,” and count
the years between as full of traffic
wonders. Of course we smile at
pictures of the duster that kept
the clothes clean from the dirt
of unpaved roads, the caps and
goggles, the high-seated autos that
clumsily jerked along with noise
and puffs. But right now, every
month of these war years, fewer
automobiles are riding the high
ways. Nearly 4,000,000 of them
were sent to the scrap pile in the
past two years. Since it appears
to be some time before new mod-;
els will be available motorists .of i
Kennewick might wisely take caret
or even a 1902 model with its‘
duster and side curtains mightl
look good! 1 1
We are in favor of the plan of
the railroad executives who pro
posed that steps be taken to pay
off the national debt in one hun
dred years by.paying one per cent
of it and the accrued interest each
year. We believe that the debt is
of such proportions that unless
steps be taken to' systematically
pay it we will never‘get it paid.
It will be dangerous for the coun
try to have a debt of this size
hanging over it. Another emer
gency calling for extensive ex
penditure might easily 'run the
debt to a point where it would be
physically impossible to pay it‘
with any income that might rea-l
sonably be expected to be earned:
by the taxpayers of this nation.‘
Unless the debt can be reduced
each year after the war, and the!
government operated within its
obtainable income,‘we of this na
tion will face financial disaster
in just the same manner that an
individual would whose expenses
consistently exceed his income.
A fire in Parley's canyon in
Utah. destroyed to a considerable
degree refomtration work of 20
years. Fire fighting officials said
the fire was caused by a lighted
cigaret thrown from a car window.
Strikes in a war plant engaged
in producing vital war material
because of jurisdictional disputes
or because of the dismissal by the
management of loafers on the job.
have been properly called acts of
treason.
If the japs who have been con
templating ham-kiri will just put
it off for a little while longer the
B-29 super fortress will take care
of it nicely and in an efficient and
wholesale manner. Honorable
ancestors won’t have to wait long
now.
The editor of one of our ex
changes suggests that an important
lesson for the youth of today to
learn is that they should learn to
give in a community and not off of
l .
Labor stoppages in war plants
are indefensible during war tinie.
but when such stoppages are
caused by jurisdictional labor or
ganization disputs the only cor
rect name for them is treason.
We think it would be a goodl
thing if some of the people who
are exempt from military service
were given a stretch in the army.
They seem to have the idea that
since the rules exempt them from
the service that this is not their
war and that they can continue
to live as usual. They make no
sacrifices that they are not forced
to make and appear to have little
Lappreciation of the sacrifices being
:made by others in their behalf. A
good stretch in the service might
help to make better citizens of
