Movmg swiftly to correct con

KenneWiCk community Thursday
night formed an association for
the improvement of trailer park
conditions.
L. M. Cronin was selected tol

the infant association. I
‘ Speaking to an audience siimd
med by the imminenee of the
Columbia river flood, Jean Jae?
qua, editor of the “Trail-R-
Nm”, urged that planning be
kept beyond a ten year projec.‘
tion into the future.
“We've had proofs last night,"
Jacques said, "of the value or the
trailer coach. What other type of
homes could have been evecuat
ed as quickly as trailers?”
fie commented on pictures of
trailer park scenes in the Kenne
wiek and river road localities,
stating that the conditions de
picted were “disgracetul”. Trai
ler parks, he continued. can be
an asset to any community.
$2 '2‘ we must not approach the
eveling at: periodionly to find
shun areas in the trailer settle
ments. ‘
Jacques said that no organized
local planning has been directed
toward the nation's third largest
industry—the tourist industry.
Admitting "that it would be' folly
to attempt to bring more tour
ists to an already over-populated
area at this time, he nonetheless
canceled that the - objective
should be kept in mind for the
future. ~

The Sidewalk
REPOAIEB
SOUAWK CLUB
Due ‘to the fact that many
members of the club were en.
gaged this week in flood work
and others were spending all
their time rubber-necking there
was no official session of the
Groaners. However a hand-full
of the faithful did gather on
meeting night only to discover
that the basanent headquarters
was rippling three-quarters full
of water. One at them mused
to save the battered gavel that
was lodged on a window sill and
the little group ruemliy plodded
homemrd.‘ agreeing to cell the
next session to order in the gem:-
in: summer quarters.

There are“ so many interesting
sidelights to the devastating flood
of the past week that it will be
impossible to record many of
theminthisorotherjournalsot
the day. Reporting a disaster of
this nature, whlch covers so
much territory and involves so
many thousands of people is a
task that would require the com
binsd ettorts or“ hundreds of
writers, photographers and radio
men. Add to all this the ann
culty of traveling over the dis
aster area and readers may be
able to understand why many
mistakes are made ‘and many;
discrepaneies appear.
lumen:
‘ Add to the difficulties men
.tioned above the stepped up out
put of the rumor mill. “The wa
ter’s rising." . . . “it's going
down . .7; " Rumors of 11m
lost, people missing, boats cap
sized. people marooned on is
lands or buildings, equipment
lost. roads closed or not closed,
and a thousand others. We can
admit to the general belief that
‘.‘newswriting' is such interesting
work!" But it’s no bed of roses.
WATER ,
It seems ridiculous that in spite
of the tremendous volume of
water that has been cascading
down our valleys that one of the
most serious-threats to commun
ity life was the possibility ot<a
shortage of water. The PP&L
was .tortunate in having wells
in operation and the K 11) under
Ed Brand’s guidance, fought a
Isucceatul- fight against the tor
irent' to keep water running in
;that system. The community owes
a lot ‘0! thanks to the operators
of the . utility systems. 3
HEALTH ‘
The public health is also ser
iously menaced during and espec
ially menacing flood conditions.
Dr. Charles Tudor and his stat!
have worked diligently and it is
hoped successfully to keep the
area free from any major epi
demic. Their final success will
rest more with the sane and full
cooperation of the citizens than
on' their own efforts. No one
should in any way minimize the]
{threat to health. i
COMMITTEE _ J
The citys flood, committee,
headed by Mayor Pratt, has re
ceived a 'haskettul of volunteer
help from many local citizens.
Their efforts have aided in a
thousand ways to reduce confu
sion. The Red Cross has alleviat
ed a lot of‘suifering. The Nation
al Guard. city police, sheriff’s
force and other agencies have
joined in the allout each-t to
solve flood problems

to travel on.
On th etrain there was a boy
>about two years old. named Gre
gory. He got a silver dollar mom
a man and called it his “80!!
wheel.
. The altitude of the mountains
bothered me quite a bit. It made
my ears ring just terribly.
We traveled through Glacier
National Park in Montana. It is
very pretty at this time of the
year/In the depot at St. Paul
we had to wait three hours. That
was very tiresome. l spat snore
lmoney in that depot than any-
We had to chance trains in
St. Paul so we took the Rock
Island Rocket another fast
train. From there the trip didn‘t
last at all. . . .
