It is recorded that a newcomer
to the art of poker once failed to
bet four aces, watching the siz:
able pot go to a lad with two
pairs. ’

Listening to the reproving
words of his ' companions, he re
laxed with sublime confidence
and declared that he’d bet ’em
straight through the next he got

Well, he left some time later
without his small change, his fold
ing money, his gold watch and
his old fraternity pin. Those aces
never came again.

His plight might be compared
to that of Kennewick today.
If ever a town held a winning
hand, it is Kennewick. Only a
lack of awareness or absolute
slothfullness can prevent the
reaping gt a rich reward.
If we could look at two sign
posts, the situation might be al

Rekrmdn Qew er/
There is no reverse gear on
time. Kennewick cannot wheel
backward into the past. Indeed,
the most powerful circumstances
order its advancement. The single
choice we have confronting us is:
shall our development be planned
and ordered? Or shall it be hodge
podge, helter-skelter, hit-or-miss?
It at 8 II! #3
The obvious answep' is—let's
plan it!
at a: '1: as a:
We have the most reasonable
assurance that we could sell a
thousand houses to permanent
residents in the next one or two‘
years. We have also the most rea-‘
sonable assurance that we actual
ly CAN build those houses.
It * t t #
What would they mean to Ken
a: a z;- :3 a:
Related to city income, we could
figure that the average home
would be valued at $7,000. One
half of that figure would be taken
for tax purposes, resulting in a
taxable value of $3,500 on the av
erage. The city tax of 15 mills, or
one and a half percent, would
produce $52.50 from each of these
homes. ,
* It It It It
That would produce an estimat
ed $52,500 in additional revenue
to the city every year.
:1: a a: as :1: ‘
Although municipal expendzir
tures would inevitably go up, as
more homes were added, the in
crease in revenues would still
.make possibfe many of the im
provements we have long desired.
3 t t * OI
We could employ a full time
city manager, to relieve the ‘al~
most impossible pressure of work
upon our voluntary and‘ unpaid
municipal officials.
It at * t *
We could build parks, possibly
a swimming pool—the school sys
tem could be expanded. There Is
no foreseeable limit to' the advan
tages that could result. '
It * t 8k t .
Yes, Kennewick holds four aces.

What do you say we play them
for all'they’re worth.

To The Editor:
A. W. “Nellie" Nelson
Dear “Nelliez”
I have before me your article
published in the Union Bulletin
of Sunday, September 21, 1947.
In that article you have something
to say about the fact that Nima
Hoadley was crowned queen of
Kennewick Grape Carnival held
in 1912, and that “ a highlight of
her reign that year was that Scott
Henderson, then a Kennewick ed
itor, oyciated as prime minister
and placed the crown on the
queen’s head.” Either you must
have misunderstood the present
Mrs.oß. C. Mounsey or her mem
ory was at fault. I have before
me a copy of the Kennewick Re
porter of Wednesday, September
27, 1911. That paper is full of
pictures of as fine exhibits of
Thursday, September 21, 1911 nd
I quote:_ _ _ p
states that the carnival began
grapes as was ever exhibited and
“In the evening the fun started
in earnest. Promptly at 7:30 ueen
Tokay and her attendants formed
in line at the Hotel Kennewick
and to the excellent music furnish
ed by the best band in the state,
marched to the exhibition hall.
In the prencence of 1000 people
Arch-Bishop A. R. Gardner placed
the precious crown on the head
of Princess Nima and crowned
her Queen Tokay 1. Prime Min-t
ister. Sly then read the Queen’s
proclamation; Mrs. G. E. Hanson
sang a beaeutiful coronation solo
and a chorus of thirty girls joined
in the ode while the crowd cheered
itself hoarse.
“Miss Nima Hoadley had been
elected queen and the ceremony
of the crowning was gorgeous. The
stage setting with the pages, flow
er girls, thirty NILE girls and un
iformed attendants from the
Knights of Pythias and the Can
ton, surrounding the dainty and
pretty queen, made a picture which
will be _long remembered by the
immense throng which packed the
building to overflowing.” '
Having been City Editor- of the
Walla Walla Union and later Ed
itor of the Evening Statesman
prior to founding the Keennewick
Reporteer _I might be rated as an
“old newspaper man" and that
may account for the fact that I
enejoy reading accurate accounts.
With kind regards. I am
Very truly yours,
Scott 2. Henderson.
Dear Editor:

associate with the Kennewick men
who are interested in the Boy
Scout program. In the past two
