The neop’hyte Kennewick Ath
letic club getting in the swim
with the announcement this week
of a plan to establish a fund that
it hopes will eventually grow into
a swimming pool. .
Club members rightly feel that
the best way to get the much need
ed pool is to start somewhere and
this seems like a logical opportuni
ty. It has been an unfortunate cir
cumstance in past years that the
community, surrounded as it is by
water, still offers no place to swim.
Health authorities have con
gietlcnhnedf both the river and the
or swimming purposes.
While this action has not kept kids
as well as adults from indulging
in America’s most popular sport.
it has resulted in making it im
possible to carry on a supervised
swimming program.
Swimming is a sport that fits
ideally into the school athletic
program, appealing to all ages. The
school can provide competent in
struction.
_ While the club realizes that the
proceeds from its forthcoming
opuswillbeonlyadropinthe
bucket, it has discovered a grows
ing demand for a pool. Members‘
feel that the effort will be well

Normal
“Back to Normal” was the topic
of an intemfing informal dis
cussion at Tuesday’s meeting of
the' Kennewick Kiwanis club.
Speakers viewed the subject from
the view of the farmer, the busi.
ness man and the church.
It is an interesting subject. How
ever, we believe that it is erron
eous to say “back’” to normal.
What would that be? ‘
Would it be the years of dis
ruption following the last war?
Inflated prices, labor difficulties,
the maladjustment of the early
twenties.
Or the imaginary prosperity that
followed resulting in the financial
chaos of the early thirties?
Normal can’t mean the depress
ion days nor the forced employ
ment that followed. -
The war years certainly can not
be counted a “normal” life. ,
It must be a period of health
and prosperity for all the people
of the nation. There must be full
employment with a decent living
standard and establishment of.se
curity for all.
i That can’t be achieved in a day.
Nor can it be accomplished with
out the full cooperation of every
citizen. ‘
