Q =¥ 3 * ’3:
Mr. Clarence Shain, Director of
thways for the State of Wash

cently that off-street parking is
one of the most challeng’ng
problems confronting cities in this
S! (a I: i< * 4:
At first, recalling a much
younger period of my life, I was
wont to take a dim view of the
situation. Because at one time I
had' a number of off-street park
ing sites spotted.
As time passed, they became
harder to pre-empt. Some of the
393's got started earlier than I

However it ensued that Mr.
Shain was talking about an en
tirely different kind of off-street
parking. And he shortly made it
apparent that towns in which
planning for suitable parking for
shoppers are not being made
are on the way to bucolic obli

Once you* give it a bit of
thought, it becomes obvious that
spenders are going to go where
'spending is the easiest. In other
towns and cities that has proved
\to be the super market, where
1 parking lures the motorist to a
one-stop shopping experience.

Super markets can be located
considerable distances from the
business heart of a community,
and still make money. Because it’s
easier to drive ten miles than it
is to walk ten blocks.

The suggestion came to the at
tention of the Chamber of Com
merce, where one alert citizen
suggested that inquiries should be
launched to discover any possible
ways of securing vacant lots on
Kennewick Avenue for off-street
parking. The matter is pending.

If it does not pend too long,
Kennewick may still avoid the
wate of becoming the little town
just a few miles beyond the
super markets of the area.

While I failed to follow in
structions, and cannot report what
the mystic meaning of this set
of initials is to the Manager of
the Benton theatre, I have de
cided that it could very well
mean “Favorite Aversion."
tttt t t ‘
And the niggling, naggling an
noyance that has finally raised
itself to the level of my “Favorite
Aversion” is the neon sign at the
corner of Bentm street and Co
lumbia Avenue.

This sign, pointing its neon tin
gQrs southward, says “Kenne
wick.” Unquestionably, if Kenne
wick is to the south of that
point, then the passing motorists
have reason to ask where they
are when they see it.

A. thrift contest conducted in the

the high school and 21 from the
grades. The scanty replies indi

coming performances of the Ben
Greet Players. School children
were to be excused at 2 o'clock
in the afternoon to attend “The
Palace of Truth." The evening
presentation was to be “The Mer
chant of Venice."
With a great big sigh of relief,
the district draft board wiped the
slate clean and adjourned sine die.
Since their organization on July 31
they considered and passed up
on more than 5,000 cases. Unless
some of the cases had to be reop
