Kir in~ Motion in More
Ways than One .° . .
It was a grave group of City 1
Fathers and .Chamber of Com- ‘
merce ‘members who gathered :
last Friday on. a Kennewick :
street corner to discuss—But then, :
indeference to their sensibilities!
we’ll not put a name to the horrid 1
subject of their conversation so ‘
quickly ‘
“It is true,” one admitted with
an air of one who at all costs will
face the nasty truth,” that the air ‘
has been in motion somewhat to
day ............" .
“But scarcely more,” another
pointed out with haste, “than is
proper to cleanse the' atmosphere
of unhealthy vapors and humours”
“Still," the first one said stub
bornly." the top of the water
tower at Park View homes was,
let us say, decapitated by the
elements and deposited a block
away. After all, you‘ know, to
waft a thing like that to the edge
of the, childrens playing field.
“Well then,” rejointed theother
speaker, “if you must name it,
there was a bit of wind as I re
member it But,” his voice grew
bolder, “I’m not going to take a
thing like that lying down.”
He had spoken without fore.

Migrant Worker
State supervisors of 17 western
states, Labor Branch representa
tives, and Federal Extension rep
resentativ‘es met at Salt Lake City
to review what had been done in
the Farm ,Labor program in 1946,
and to lay plans for 1947 opera
tions. They arrived as some defi
nite plans for increasing the de- ‘
velopment of the migrant pro
These will be discussed in detail
at their conferences in February.
It was the consensus of opinion of
all super Visors that migrant work
ers would.be available in greater
numbers in 1947, and that any
area’s ability to obtain adequate
labor depends to considerable ex
tent upon the housing facilities
available. While materials are still
difficult to obtain, the lack of
housing can no longer be given
as rudiment reason for not em
- ployms migrant families.

Helping him to his feet again,
and bracing him against a sub
stantial lamp past another, now
said deprecatingly: “It’s a trivial
ity after all, for thats’ only a re
serve tank to be used in case the
city supply of water should run
short in an emergency. The
homes at Park View are served
by water from the PP and L."
“I have a little" place on the
Highlands,” announced another
speaker. who now plunged into
the conversation. “and I’ve had
quite a time with these imported
hens It’s a trial, getting them
trained to lay down-wind. Why
just the other day,” he- pursued, “l
was watching one of them. And,
d’you know, she laid the same
egg three times. before she learned
to jump clear”
“I have a proposal,” another
began loudly. (So loudly in truth
that a passing spinster turned her
head, sniffed and snapped “lucky
dog” at him ere she continued
battling her way into the wind.)
He, however, was not to be dis
suaded and so spoke further.
“I propose that we establish a
weather station on Jump-03 Joe
similar to one I saw in operation
in Wyoming years ago. One
needs but two stout, timbers for
the uprights, another for the cross
piece,and about a ten foot length
of railroad iron, suspended from
the cross arm by a heavy chain.
“The way this was worked was
this,” he proceeded. “When the
rail only swings back and for
ward, as it is like to do in our
native zephyrs, you pay it no
heed. Nor do you give it your
attention when it stands out stifl
in a prevailing breeze. But when
it begins to undulate and wave in
a fresh current of air, ' and snap
of! one and two foot bits of rail
road steel into the surrounding
fields. there is a little man, who
comes out of a little house, and
puts up a little sign that reads,
‘Wind Today’ ”.
Silence followed his explana
tion. Apparently his listeners
were considering the .plan.
‘ At last one said: “Maybe we
ought to do that. Then Cy
Smith can have a new top built
and installed on the water tower.
And he can also have that ten
inch pipe with three breaks in
it deplaced. Then, if he’ll keep
an eye on Jump-off, he’ll know
when to tie the lid on."
With that, the group showed
signs of breaking up. One oi
the participants, taking his hand
from his hat brim long enough
to wave it airily, spoke without
thought:"‘Well,” he said. “I guess
I'll blow along.”
