Hawn’s Court
By Charlotte McCuiston
One night last week, one of our
most popular tenants was struck
down by a car, after he alighted
from a bus and had crossed the
four lane highway in front of the
court. He was Fred Bond, 17 years
old, a Kennewick high scchool
student and son of Mr. and Mrs.
B. J. Bond, who with his brother
Floyd, was just returning from
a high school basketball game. The
car, after striking Fred, swerved
across the highway and crashed
into another car head on, sending
four persons to the hospital.
Miracously, 111 four hre still
alive and out of the hospital, but
Fred, who received a right crack
ed pelvis and deep head lacera
tions will be confined to his bed
for a few weeks yet. He will try
to continue his studies at home,
'in hopes of completing his credits
for this year. More power to
Fred, and all of the good luck and
best wishes from the entire court.
If anyone ever deserved the best.
we all feel Fred does.
Mr. and Mrs. B. J. Bond, Floyd
and Robert would like to extend
thanks to everyone who so willing-:
ly and gladly offered help at the}
time of Fred’s accident and ever
since. Fred would also like to say?
thankstoall ofhisfriendsand
neighbors who have called to
wishhimwelLandcheerhimup
and help speed him on to a quick
and complete recovery. Among
his guests were a group or his
fellow students from high school
Larry Lucas, Jerry Williams, Jer-_
ry Waffinder, Peter Luvass, Iver
Elison, Don Persinger, Bob Father,
and Norman Vornick.
We were all sorry to hear of
little April Kriefels recent illness
and subsequent hospitalization.
Her pep and smiles were surely
missed while ,she was gone. April
Washington
is now home again and we hope
she will continue to regain her
health very rapidly and be her;
own sweet self again, very soon.
Mr. and Mrs. Paul Poling took
a trip to the Treton Range last
Thursday, to see the hungry Elk
come down from the hills for
their winter feeding. They were
very much surprised and pleased
at being abie to see so many elk
and deer at such a close range.
They are planning another trip
soon. They estimated a count of
some two or three hundred anis
mals.
We all feel greived at the terri-lv
ble tragedy that struck in south-.
west Kennewick last week, with
the flash flood. We hape that the’
situation may soon be cleared,
and all of the residents, who left'
their homes and belongings behind!
will soon be back again and.
ready to live in their newly re-x
modeled homes by spring. Fred Me i
Cuiston started to work on thosel
homes at the very beginning of
construction and has been work
ing day and night in and around :
them, since the flood. He helped
to evacuate many families, and}
witnessed their grief stricken
faces and ~'pitiful plight as they!
tried vainly to save as much of‘
their worldly goods and prized
pocessions that they had time fonl
Mrs. W. A. Hawn spent a day]
last week visiting in Pasco with
her friend, Mrs. Lillian Brain, and
also called on Mrs. Avved Ostofin
and her two weeks old baby,
ißichard Allen. ‘ 1
The Birthday Club of the courtl
celebrated last Wednesday with
the February birthdays, honoringl
Mrs. Mary Jackson, and Mrs.
Louise Dean. A lovely birthday
cake was made by Mrs. Gussie
Poling. Cake, ice cream and coffee
was served in the recreation to
the ladies of the court. Due to‘
Mrs. J ackson’s recent illness, she
was unable to attend, but the cake!
‘was taken to her, so she couldi
*cut the first piece for herself. :
Eddie Rydstrom left for Spokane
last weekend to spend a few days.
Monday morning Kenneth Ke
lever left for Chicago by car. There
he willpickup a newtrailer
and bring it back to the coast.
Last Sunday, Mrs. Minnie Buch
anan wiled on the W. A. Hawn’s.
Making up a table for contract
bridge were, Mrs. Buchanan, Mrs.
Vandla Bergh, Mrs. Beulah Car
ter and Mrs. Hawn. At a late
hour a delicious luncheon was
served by the hostess to Mr. and
Mrs. James Carter, Mr. and Mrs.
Bergh, Mrs. Buchanan, and Mr.
Hawn.
Mr. and Mrs. Alvin Townsend
and children of Hermiston, called
on Mr. and Mrs. Karl Hall and

03681) To WATCH ANIMALS
Livestock men of Benton county
were urged by County Extension
Agent Frank Webster to keep a
careful check on the condition of
their animals because of the ex
treme and prolonged cold this
winter. Even though the stock
may be getting a normal winter
ration the long cold season may
have depleted reserve stores of fat
and energy, he suggests, 'so the
animals may be in worse condition
than they seem to be. ..

Outlook for Farmers
Is Reported Goad
Opinion that the “outlook for
farmers in 1949 still looks good"
was cited for the attention of
Washington farmers.
Special reference to the wheat
and meat outlook. as expressed
before the Senate agriculture
committee. was mentioned by
Senator Warren G. Magnuson as
being of interest in Washington
state. ,
He referred to the statement
of Agriculture Secretary Brennan,
who testified that “we see noth
ing in the basic economic situa
tion to warrant the current mar
ket break.” I
Testimony of special interest.
in the Northwest. Magnuson said.‘
included this statement: “Farmers
know what their incomes are‘
not made in the futures market
and the current decline in wheat
futures involving, speculative in
fluences should have little ef
fect on 'whent ”producers."
