85 to the rescue!
.Last week three small boys im
bued with a spirit of adventure,
attempted to cross to Wade’s Is
land on a raft constructed of two
planks and a barn door. They had
taken their dog along as a passen
ger. It was late evening. The ship
was not very seaworthy and broke
up under the strain of the can
rent. -
The boys were swept into mid
stream current. Clinging frantical
ly to the wreckage, holding their
dog, the boys’ called for help.
Larry Havstad, a Coast Guard
auxiliaryman, heard their SOS
and rushed to their rescue with his
boat, kept in readiness at all times
in the Flotila‘ program.
This boat and others are being
used-to furnish rides on'the river
to purchasers of bonds from mem
bers of the group. The bonds
can .be purchased from Harry
Linn at the Washington Hardware,
or from Urban Keolker at the
Mens Sto‘re. They might be pur
suaded with a good bond pur
chase, to show the scene of the
recent disaster of the SS Barn
Door and the timely rescue.
Flotila members report good
sales of bonds in their boat ride
program and many customers re
port an enjoyable ride. The offer
will be continued until the 30th
,of June.
Reports are not yet coming in
as _to the amounts of bonds be

Highland Project
Discussed Willi
Cong. Holmes
That congressional action is in
the immediate future in regard to
the long-sought Highland irriga
tion project is the bellief of Cong.
Hal Holmes. A group of local
men went to Yakima Wednesday
night to meet the congressman to
discuss the question. Holmes. re
cently appointed to the War Food
committee, was in this region with
other members of the committee
and the newly appointed secretary
of agriculture. Clinton Anderson.
A bill which provides funds for
the pre-construction surveys of
irrigation projects has passed the
senate and is now in house com
mittee. An attempt will be made
to get the bill passed in the house
before the end of June which ends
the _natiori's fiscai yearn _ _ ._
About $45,000 is allotted to the
Kennewick survey. Mr. Holmes
has stated that he will bend every
effort to secure passage of the
bill. It is believed that passage of
this bill is tantamount to the se
curing of the project with engin
eering approval.
H. G. Fyte, Francis Ludlow.
Frank Maupin, Charles Powell and
Urban Keolker made up the dele
gation. They reported on thelr
meeting with the congressman at
the Thursday meeting of the
Chamber of Commerce. 7
The Chamber urged directors
of the federal housing project to
make every attempt to keep the
project under the control of the
city when the federal govern
ment decidea to dispose of the
property. In the near future 300
trailer: will be moved out to places
where they are urgently needed.
P. G. Richmond. Ralph Reed and
Leo Baboock. directors. are going
to Portland and Seattle this week
