Senator Magnuson commented
that: . . 7
“I am satisfied-that this will
provide adequate quarters with
good location for post office pat
sons and generous parking facili
ties will be assured. The proposal
takes into account both present
and contemplated volume of post

is of vital interest to the residents
of the area and their feelings have
guided me. in this recommenda
tion.”
Meanwhile, the office of the T.
8: S. Construction Company had
received a letter from the second
Assistant Postmaster General stat
lng they could expect something
on the matter soon.
Postmaster Woehler said: “This
word from Senator Magnuson
sounds encouraging to me. We
may get word of the consumma
tion any time.”
The lease drawn up by Seldle
provides that the decision must be
made before May 1. That wxll be

SCENERY
It is doubtful if any airplane
route in the nation can pack so
much scenery into a one hour
flight. This one is positively
breath-taking in its grandeur and
variation. Throughout most of the
flight five of the major peaks of
the Cascade range stood clearly
etched on the horizon, towering in
all their majesty above the dozens
of smaller snowy points. Rainier,
Adams, St. Helens, Hood and Jet
ferson—each one by itself a never-1
to-be-forgotten sight—predominy
ate an ever-changing scene of riv- ‘
ers, timber and neat farms. The
trip is a must for anyone who ap
ipreciat’es scenery at its best. And
again in the words of the Cham
ber of Commerce: “This can be
advertised as THE scenic route to
the coast.”
PORTLAND
We spent the day in Portland
and Vancouver boosting the air
line, which of course gave. us an
opportunity to boostKennewick as
well. Of course the 'small number
of people we were able to talk to
could not be considered a fair
cross section of residents of the
Rose City. But of those we did see,
;there seemed to be, almost univer
[sal disapproval of their new may
;or and innovations that have been
instigated. The fact that the mayor
is a woman may contribute, but
the objections were largely based‘
on drive against any form of
gambling and the institution of a
city business tax. Several predict
ed that if present measures were
extended there would be an exo
dus of business across the river to
Vancouver. Within ten years, said
one unhappy Portlander, Vancouv- ‘
er will be bigger than Portland. ‘
VISTA
Getting back home, perhaps the
least attractive spot on the new
route is its Kennewick beginning.
Vista Field needs a lot of attention
and belatedly, perhaps, its going
to get it. The city officials are
rapidly completing plans that will
make the field both useful and
attractive. An administration
building will be started soon and
every attempt will be made to im
prove the appearance of the area.
Vista boasts an excellent field
lighting system and is so strateg
ically located that it enjoys as
near perfect flying weather as can
be found. It will surely become
the hub of air traffic in eastern
Washington.
STORY OF THE WEEK
With the busy farm season now
in progress, we just heard this
one. When a farm family had
come in from the fields to sit
down to a heavy laden Monday‘
noon table, the farmer’s busy wife‘
was heard to complain to husbandl
and stalwart sons:
“Look, here it is Monday. To
morrow is Tuesday and the. next
day’s Wednesday. Half the week
gone, and nothing done!”
