We note there are many more‘
people leaving their porch lights
on. Too many, however, turn
them off at a comparatively early
hour in the evening. The late
hours are the time when the home
ward plodding neighbor , most
needs the light. It’s almost as easy
to leave the lights on all night, and
it is a great help in our so-poorly
lighted town.
Of course it’s a little early to ex
pect to see any activity along the
line, but we confidently expect to
hear a rousing message from the
town’s new mayor concerning the
abominable condition of the city
streets and the necessity of re
surfacing. No doubt he will be
able to rouse enough enthusiasm
in his councilmen that one of the
very first moves—when material,
etc., become available—will be the
resurfacing of the main drag, at
least.
There seems to be a general
conception that the USO work at
the community center on the hous
ing project is exclusively for the
residents of that area. This is
definitely not the case. Both the
housing management and the USO
worker are anxious that towns
people take advantage and make
general use of all the facilities
there. Not only the youth of the
community, but adults as well, are
invited to use the club rooms,
gymnasuim, kitchen, etc. and ar~
rangements for times, etc. can be
made with the director there. The
townspeople should make a special
effort to see the facilities, at least,
so that they can know what sort
of institution their children are
attending, for the children have

growing in popularity among the
teen-agers and school pupils.
Congress promised the country a
simplified tax form. We hope for
the welfare of the country that
the administration comes nearer
fulfilling its other promises to the
people than it has this one. We
are ready to concede that the com
pilers of the tax form and the
accompanying instructions are
brilliant accountants or anything
else they want conceded just so
they get up a tax form that can
be understood by the people who
have to fill out the things and pay
the taxes. Personally we could
never see the economy of getting
out an obstruse tax form that no
one can understand, and then
sending out an army of tax col
lectors to check up on the people
and correct errors made because
of obstruse and indefensible tax
forms and instructions.
If the cigarette shortage keeps
up why not bring out the old time
proven substitutes such as corn
silks, alfalfa leaves and a number
of others. A little synthetic treat
ment and these would make as
good a smoke as many of the
brands available today. All that
is necessary is to wrap them in a
brightly printed package and back
them with an advertising campaign
and let the word get out that the
supply is limited.
As a general rule the Kennewick
man who argues loudest about his
“constitutional rights” never read
the Constitution.
EXCEPT FOR THE FIGHTING!
From the United Press, “It is
stiff, savage, bloody fighting under
serious climate and terrain. And
the men who are forcing the Ger
mans in the front lines know the
war is all over, except for the‘
fighting. Over, except for the‘
fighting! Find any other expres-!
sion that could so earnestly speak
for war bond buying. It is prac
tically everything. They say men
‘can’t fight without equipment,
which is true today, but there
\were days when men fought with
{the bare fists and did battle well,
‘so history records. So it is a fact
that without the men, there is no
victory. You can fight a war as
the Russians did the Germans for
awhile, without the proper
weapons, but with the men. There
are ways of putting in so many
men that they overcome the
enemy in great nunibers, and
though with a great loss of life,
they destroy by their own weight.
’Then you can fight a war with
men aided by ships and planes
\and tanks and guns. You buy the
bond that they may continue to
fight perhaps to die on foreign
soil. But this type of fighting is
with equipment that makes the
attack a fortified one, that makes
metal so powerful that not as
many men are needed to win an
objective. As man becomes wiser,
he decides it is better to spend‘
the money for weapons, if war is}
to be, than to spend the youth
and save the money. This is also!
why are' not going to take other?
work and leave essential war jobs,
let the boys down because we
can’t provide the equipment. We
know the war is not over, not
as long as any one boy from any
town like Kennewick, is left hold
ing the torch. We are not through
until it is DONE. They are through
EXCEPT FOR THE FIGHTING.
TROUBLE ABROAD
European nations hit the head
lines with their political troubles
and our Allies make proposals and
take difinite stands in these
foreign affairs. We ask ourselves
what principle of expression
America should voice. What is to
be the American policy and action
in regard to such governments as
France and Greece and Italy and
so on, settling their affairs and
disagreements in revolution. and
rioting? Is it our choice that the
liberated countries should decide
completely for themselves, with a
hands off policy from us? Would
it follow that we sanction revolu
tion and rioting? We must find
out what the Allies stand for,
what influence they plan to exert,
how they will work together on
these questions that are constantly
arising. Are we to be left, holding
the bag? Unity is necessary. We
want to know where we stand
what road we take. _
FRANKLIN SAID IT.
On January 17th, this nation
celebrates the birthday of the
famed Benjamin Franklin. We use
his own words, which were always
so forceful, in reminding ' our
Courier-Reporter readers of what
he had to say about winning this
war!
“When the government finds it
necessasy for the common benefit,
advantage and safety of the nation,
for the security of our liberties,
property, religion and everything
that is dear to us, that certain
sums shall be yearly raised by
taxes, duties, etc. (today the etc.
are WAR 80ND5).....--.and paid
into the public treasury, thence
to be dispens’d by government for
those purposes; ought not every
honest man freely and willingly
to pay his just proportion of this
necessary expense? Can he pos
sibly preserve a right to that
character, if, by any fraud, strate
gem, or contrivance, he avoids
that payment in whole or in part?”
IN THE WAKE OP FREEDOM.
It used to be that self preserva
tion was the cause of war. That
hungry people will seek to con
quer a fertile land that they
might be fed. This does not hold
true in more recent wars, the
hunger of the body was for primi
tive man, the hunger for power
and rule being a modern reason
for war. However, as conquered
nations are freed from oppression
today. the hunger comes and the
internal disturbance begins: A free
people demand the comforts of
such freedom. Such moves slowly.
There are many to supply, with
food and drink, with clothing and
shelter. There is a need for form
ing a governing body for the
people. It too is done quickly. But
as we pray, “Give us this day our
daily bread,” the pronouns point
to many mouths to feed, each in
due time. It is NOT give Me,
My bread! Patience is need as
well as bread.
THE KENNEWICK COURIER-REPORTER;
Why is it that when a man once
gets lined up with the gimmie
crowd he is never satisfied. He is
seldom thankful. He wants more
and more. As 'long as he is on his
own he makes out with what he
earns, but with the first hand out
he is changed into a new being.
From then on the hand that feeds
him is never full enough, nor
passed his way often enough.
There should be a happy
medium somewhere in this thing.
Keep up a good front and try to
,keep up with the Joneses and the
chances are you will go broke at it.
Let it be known that you are
having a hard time to make the
erade and your friends will shun
you like a poor relation. It is
difficult to tell which is the worst
to lose your friends or go broke
keeping up with the Jonas.
