Let’s clean up Kennewick! Citi
zens of the city have noticed the
need for a general clean up of
yards, streets and alleys. Visitors
have said:. “You have a nice town,
but . - . ’
The need for a general clean up
is obvous. But it’s not as simple as
it might appear. We're all busy.
The harvest is on us. We’m short
handed. We haven’t the time. But
we’ll have to find the time.
Let's not leave ‘it to George.
It will require a little extra effort
on the part of all to make the
campaign a sum The tire
department, the police depart
ment, the Kiwanis club and the
Chamber of Commerce are all co
operating to make the job as
complete as possible. '
The main responsibility rests
with John Q.— with the in
dividual citizen and business man.
Let’s each attempt to measure
up to that responsibility. '
The automobile, annihilator of
space, unfortunately also has been
an annihilator of people. In 1944
about 23,400 persons were killed
in the United States in traffic
accidents. In the same year 850,000
persons were injured, and 70,000

But there is a gleam of hope
in a program which is being
undertaken by the nation’s police
officers, under the sponsorship of
the International Association of
Chiefs of Police, from April 15 to
June 1. During this period, police
and sheriffs will check the brakes
of all automobiles involved in
accidents and traffic violations-
During their Brake-Check pro
gram, the police will urge all
operators" of passenger automo
biles to have their brakes,-as well
as the other mechanical parts of
their cars, checked and put in
proper operating condition.
With widespread public support
the I. A. C. P. program can be out
standingly effective, not alone in
saving lives and reducing the
number of traffic accidents, but in
conserving irreplaceable pas
senger automobiles far vital war
It is to be hoped that the citi
zens of the country will give their
whole-hearted support to the

Such a program should have a
carryover effect in post war days,
for it will educate the public in
the proper care of their cars, and
in the prevention of accidents
when there will be millions of
new automobiles on the road.
While Allied troops were smash
ing their way into Europe last
June to open the second front,
President Franklin D. Roosevelt
spent the quiet hours of the night
composing this prayer. It is being
reprinted as a fitting epitaph to a
great man.

NO MORE than a thumb-nail sketch of
the humble origin and great growth of the
Link-Belt Company is needed to furnish
a clear reason for one of the basic policies
of The National Bank of Commerce of
That banking policy is based on the fact
that virtually all successful businesses of
, today were once small. And that is among
many reasons why this bank, in everyday
practice, devotes the full co-operation of
all its departments to the welfare of indi
viduals or firms with sound, although mod
erate, operations.
1: s s ‘
While doing business in farm imple
ments in a small way in a small town,
Belle Plaine, lowa, a young fellow, Wil
liam Dana Ewart, observed that chains on
harvesters gave a great deal of trouble.
They wore faster on one side, broke often,
and stretched so that they, frequently ran
oi the sprockets. He invented a square,
detachable link to remedy these defects
and to make it possible to repair the drive
by inserting new links in the chain in the
field. .
t 1' 11.
With virtually no funds, young Ewart
~ worked up rough models and went to Chi
cago in search of capital to exploit his
invention; Little by little, Ewart’s device.
by sheer merit, attained recognition. Step
by step, his infant manufacturing com
pany. of inauspicious birth, grew into the
present internationally-known Link-Belt
Company. Ewart's chains became a foun
dation for all types of power transmission
and materials-handling equipment. _
Today. Link-Belt products of wide
variety find use wherever the wheels of
industry turn. Here, in Americaahwherc
mocepezpl earetodayengagedm epro
duction machinerythanwere employed
in all manufacturing a hundred years ago.
Link-Belt equipment is outstanding.
e s c
On such histories of customers. The
National Bank of Commerce of Seattle
has founded its day-by-day practice to
extend sympathetic. constructive con
sideration to small business. Here the
banking policy is based on soundness re
gardless of size.
