THE HOSPITAL
Last week in our news columns
we presented a picture of the pre
sent status of the hospital plans.
Many people, hearing of the can
cellation oi the $350,000 federal
grant, made the observation that
we are “right back where we
started.”
That is not quite a fact. It was
nearly four years ago that the
Kennewick Chamber of Com
merce first appointed a commit
tee headed by Urban Keolker “to
see about getting a hospital for
Kennewick." That committee has
worked diligently against gyer
whelming odds of time, red tape,
federal bureau complications and
many other stumbling blocks.
They got the grant of $350,000.

SISTER CITY
‘ Bill Wilmot, enterprising editor
and publisher of the Ritzville
Journal-Times, has published for
several weeks at the head of his
editorial column an eleven-point
ten year program for his commu
nity. . '
It is an ~amazing observation
that except for the first point and
minor substitutions in a couple
others, the program could have
been laid out for Kennewick.
_ First point calls for the erection
of a modern grade school building.
But before you smugly “point
with pride” notice that Ritzville’s
plan does not include a hospital;
That’s because they already have
a hospital and are now engaged in!
a plan to increase its size. ‘
Following is ‘fThe Journal-1
Times’ Ten Year Program” for our
sister city: 1
1. Erection of a modern grade.
school building in Ritzville. .
it Estabhshm' ent of a local air

3. Building of a Ritzville-Colfax
link of the Crossstate highway,
and a modern highway between
Washtucna and Walla Walla.
4. A new postoflice for Ritzville.‘
5. Better street lighting in the‘
city’s residential district. 1
6. Early action on the Columbia
Basin project to insure a rosier
future for Adams county includ

7. Improvement of the Ritzville

Columbia Valley Aulllorily May
Provide Unemployment Cushion
(Thisisthetenthinaseriaof
articles in which Senator Mitchell
explains what sort of CVA is
proposed in the bill he recently
introduced into Congas.)
37 Hugh 3. Mitchell
U. 8. Senator hon: Washington
Unemployment is a dreaded
spectre. Memory of the depression
which followed World War I is
still vivid. Everyone wonders
what definite plan has been pro
vided which will assure a job for
every man after the war, or in
deed for any man. Post war unem
ployment threatens even those
who do not depend on jobs but
have businesses of their own
which will suffer. When there is
no purchasing power the economic
life of the community bogs down.
In the Northwest the question
of jobs after the war is particularly
important because of the war
growth in population. Washington
and Oregon pre among the twelve
;states of the nation which show
‘an increase in civilian population
Ltor’the years between 1940 and
[1943. Although the civilian popu
lation of Montana and Idaho has
decreased by about 140,000, the
increase in Washington and Ore
gon of over 270,000 is nearly twice
that loss. The metropolitan coun
ties of Washington and Oregon
show a 20 to 25 per cent increase

in population. The particular dis
tricts where this increase has been
concentrated are in the Puget
Sound section and the Portland-
Vancouver section and Spokane.
INDUSTRIAL POPULATION
The new fiopulation is largely
industrial, employed in war indus
tries. Shipbuilding has been using
about 200,000 persons, with ship
building sub-contractors account
ing for another 150,000. The air
craft industry is. second. the Boe
ing works alone employing some
40,000 people. The aluminum.
magnesium and matallurgical in
dustries account for: several thous
and more. Except possibly for the
last named group. all other large
war employers will throw the
bulk of their job holders onto the
labor market when the war is
over. -
This great mass of ex-war work
ers, plus the demobilized armed
forces, will certainly give rise to
a critical condition in the region.
A somewhat similar condition will
no doubt exist throughout the
country.
It is, therefore, necessary that.
during the transition period, pub
lic works and industrial conver
sion both be maintained at a very
high level. Certainly a strong and
concerted effort in this direction
must be planned well in advance.
We hear of 60 million jobs, but we
have not seen even a portion of
them materialize.
PUBLIC WORKS
In the Northwest there are a
certain. number of public works
projects which could cushion the
shock of dislocated labor, it the
projects are begun. If an over-all
organization like a Columbia Val
ley Authority could be established
at once, there would be some as
surance that the program of pub
lic works would be undertaken.
The question is extremely seri.
ous, for these projects can, direct
ly or indirectly, assure gainful em
ployment for several hundreds of
thousands of persons over a period
of ten or more years. The stimula
tion to the community of such a
core of job activity will keep the
economic wheels going around.
