: The Downtown Shoppers’ and

local complaint club took over
the joint meeting of the several

member with a foghom voice

no accidents, brawls and general
disturbance in many places it

nalck. However, it may be that
this not unusual here, so we are
closing it under the heading of
“Old Business.” _ ‘

"Konnowick Highlands—Fin!
With the 3.81."
That slogan has again been
proved with the news that Lois
Elayne Foraker, born at 4:47 am.
January 1 .is the apparent wm
net of the Kennewick 1946 Baby
contest. Proud parents are Mr.
and Mrs. Vern Foraker. whose
home _is on the Highlands.
A close contender .was also a
girl born to Mr. and Mrs. Ed
Taylor of Richland at 6:22 am.
Ne_w Year’s Day.
However the contest will be
held open a few days longer Just
in case some early contenders in
the outlying precincts have not
yet had an opportunity to report.
Contest sponsors were given a
scare last week when it was re
ported that the stork had got
himself entangled in power lines
while on a tour of duty. However
it is apparent that the stork ser
vice does not suffer the wartime
shortages of equipment that beset
other transportation enterprises
and a substitute carrier was on
hand to keep things rolling.
‘ In answer to numerous ques
tions it is planned to ‘make this
icontest an annual event. Prospec
‘tive contenders have been espe

The large number of valuable
prizes offered by Kennewick mer
