Ave. C to Get
Walks. Lighls; to
Improve Airport
City councilmen labored until
a late hour Tuesday night and
completed one of the longest
agendas in a number of weeks.
The projected improvements on
Avenue C were given a consider
able airing. A report, was heard
on the progress Avenue C mer
cahnts are making toward the es
tablishment of a local improve
ment district for the purpose of
constructing sidewalks and curbs
from Washington street to the
inter-city bridge on the north
side of the street and to Fir on
the south side. It is also planned
to ins'tall ornamental lighting the
same distance. .
Work of securing ,right-of—way‘
for the sidewalks is practically
completed. with all the property
owners wrllingly cooperating. The
property Will be deeded to the
city for the purpose of putting in‘
the walks. However, in order to
assure the clearing of the titles
the council moved to proceed
with its condemnation suit start
ed last spring. This is a friendly
action meant only to speed the
title clearance. -
No action was taken on the or
namental fighting. Further in
vestigation will be made as. to
costs and types of lighting avail
able. Avenue C merchants have
requested the aid of the city in
paying for the lighting. Oma
mental lights of Kennewick Ave
nue were installed on that basis.
However, a WPA grant was in
volved in that transaction.
The council’s airport commit
tee was instructed to ‘proceed
with the improvement on the
Nob Hill field. This year’s bud
get includes an item of SI,OOO for
airport purposes. It is believed
that most necessary improvement
is the oiling of the warm-up
apron. At the present time the
warm-up process churns up the
loose sand. Manager Herb Henne‘
has started work on the con
struction of an administration
building. The committee will al
so work to get domestic water to
the field. . ‘
Fire Chief Herb' Malchow re-‘
ported on the meeting last Friday
for the purposeof establishing a
rural fire deparment. The coun
cil renewed its pledge.to give the
fullest cooperation to establish the
district to the mutual advantage
of the city and rural areas.
A delegaion visited the council
to discuss the matter of cutting
addiional streets in Layon's Ad—
dition. The streets committee
will work on the proposal.
Two ordinances were given fin
al reading and passage. One pro
vided for the. transfer of two city
lots on North Auburn street to J.
W. Graves, who will build a gar
age on the prOperty. The other
changed the classification of lots
on Nob Hill to commercial zones.

I can’t remember them all. One
special Chinese favorite is pre

we had last night were supposed
to have been 40 years old. The
outer part or white of the egg as
we know it, was a dark amber
color and looked jelled. Just un

cleaned.
We went to the French Bazaar,

from socks to fur coats and all

Old man Defeat finally overtook
the Kennewick Lions and Coach
Moreman’s Pasco Bulldogs were
the ones that did the work, Tues
day, February sth, on the Lion’s
own floor, by a convincing margin
of 47 to 34, in a fast game of has
ketball before an overflow crowd
that saw lots of action. Kennewick
had considerable trouble in locat
ing the basket, what with lay-ins
and shots that went in and out to
be recovered for the most part by
the Pasco team. _ _- -__ _
Although the shooting of the lo
cal boys was below pat, the Pasco
boys were checking close and rush
ing the Lions at all times. Three
lay-ins by Poling, one by Green
and short shots from the key could
just as well have been on the
credit side for Kennewick, but
rimmed the basket, eventually roll
ing off for no score. Pasco was
hot and there is no disputing the
fact. It was apparent from the start
and with Foxley of Pasco racking
up 9 baskts for 18 points, followed
by Boyd and Glenn with 11 and
10 points, respectively, there were
enough points among these three
boys to win the gaine.
Coach Moreman, made a good
choice by starting “Lil Abner”
Gardner in the second half. and
his height, along with that of Boyd,
made the control of the backboard
all Pasco. Bill Foxley played a
great game, stealing the ball sev
eral times and fast breaking for
points. The loss of Stifter, early
in the second quarter. hurt the
Kennewick team, but Hamid Per
kins, who replaced him, turned in
a good performance. . ‘
The first half of the game was
close, Pasco leading at that point
by a score of 19-17, but in the sec

Work Started on
Formation of
Fire District
Plans for the formation of a
Rural Fire District took definite
form at a meeting at the High
lands Clubhouse last Friday
night. Those residents of the rural
area adjacent to Kennewick whose
property would come within such
a district were invited by the
Highlands Improvement Club to
hear the plan discussed at an open
meeting of that organization.
President Glenn Felton called
the meeting to order and presented
Mayor J. C. Pratt of Kennewick.
who explained the change in the
classification of Kennewick’s City
Fire Department. He pointed out
that the recent up-grading of the
City’s Fire Department had placed
new restrictions on it. Because of
a war time “mutual assistance"
agreement, these rules are not
strictly enforced at present. “We
may be ordered at any time after
the termination of the National
Emergency to kep our equipment
within ‘ the city limits." he said.
He explained that this would leave
the farmers in the areas near Ken
newick without fire protection of
any kind. Mayor Pratt then intro
duced Mr. Leonard L. Bergunder,
Deputy State Fire Marshall. who
explained the formation of a Fine
District. _ u _ _
The plan is as follows: A des
cription of the district is put on
file with th county, giving the ex
act boundaries.
Petitions are then circulated for
signatures among the registered
voters of the district. The peti
tions are examined. and it there
are enough valid signatures. the

time the proposition is voted upon,
