Cherries Are Ripe, Buf—
The cherry picking and shipping season has been
in full swing in the Kennewick district, but in contrast
to seasons of the past.
Cherry time in Kennewick ordinarily is a time when
the pockets of a great many people become lined more
heavily with currency. Permanent residents as well as
transients take part as the first major crop of the year
moves into the markets.
But this year, there is a let-down. Although it is a
bumper crop, the revenue being derived is less than the
cost of production. Some farmers say they will let their
crops rot on the ground before they pick them and
haul them into the canning plants.
Not only the farmers but also the canning and fresh
market business here in Kennewick suffers. It is the sec
ond time within a year that market glutting has defeated
the hopes of the growers in this area. Last fall Concord
grapesl growers were the victims of a falling market
which saw grape checks failing to equal what growers had
paid out for labor, fertilizer, machinery, and overhead ex
pense. , .
In an area where a boom has been in progress for
several years, it is a kind of paradox that one class of
producers should be operating ‘at a loss. Prospects for
business in general in the area are good. Hanford Works
will be on the budget for a new fiscal year July 1. That
is generally expected to be the signal for resumption of
some activities which were curtailed during the last
months of the current fiscal year. Money appropriated
did not reach. They spent more and faster at Hanford
than the plan justified. To the south of Kennewick, a
great irrigation project awaits the funds that should have
been alloted earlier in congress to resume operations on a
major scale. McNary dam is moving. ' The need for more
low cost homes will remain in the community as long as
this kind of actiVity continues. Looking farther ahead,
the army has called for a huge expenditure for defense
facilities at Hanford. This may spell the beginning of
another prosperous era. -.
The only dull spot on a bright horizon is the plight
of the man who produces things we must have from. the
earth. His production is the best of all, for although we
can get along without atomic bombs, we can not get along
without food. That is why farm programs being consider
ed by congress are of the greatest implortance. What can
be done to improve'the situation on s ort notice is ques
tionable. One Washington congressman has suggested a
ban on foreign grown cherries. That may be the answer
for the moment, although it does not tie in with the basic
policies in the European recovery program—policies
which, however, may have to be changed to end the drain
on American wealth.
- The Courier-Reporter wants the farmers of this area
to know that they are and always will be considered
among the most important class of citizens. It drastic
steps are necessary to safeguard their interests,,drastic
steps should be taken. Their interests will always be
among the paramount interests of this community.

Two friends, who think much of each other, parted
last week. .
It was a sad parting as so often happens, they really
didn’t realize how much they thought of each other until
the parting came. , '
; The friends were Rev. John B. Coan, pastor of the
Methodist church here for the past six years, and Ken
newick itself.
Over that six year period, Rev. Coan devoted his
heart- and mind to trying to make bettermen and women
of the people of Kennewick. He strove to point the way
to finer, more serviceable, more christian lives for the
young people who are growing up and who have gone
out into the world for themselves during his stay.
With his right hand he worked for the things that
you find on the inside of the covers of the Bible. With his
eft he took his place among the men of the community
‘to work ,for civic progress. In both he probably has had
more than his share of success.
. All Kennewick will join in saying ‘.‘So long John and
good luck. Thanks a million for having come.”

One of the mm common skin
problems causing considerable
concern and dismay, particular
ly among teen—users, is acne
vulgaris or what is commonly
caLlesi “purples" _- . _
This condition affects the ma
jority of American youths to a
greater or lesser degree during
adolescence. It is an inflamma
tory process involving the ’skin
glands of the face, shoulders,
chest and back. Frequently it is
accompanied by dandruff of the
“glib ' :_:. '.' _- '_
The condition is usually a lo
cal disease of the skin but its
course and duration are influ
enced by general health. endo
crine changes and diet. Infec
tions and constipation tend to
aggravate it. '
Formerly it was believed that
sweets made the condition worse,
but careful studies during re
cent years haVe indicated that it
is perhaps not the sugars that
cause the trouble. Rather, it is
certain substances frequently as
sociated with them. ‘
There seems to be no doubt
but that certain foods definitely
aggravate the condition. Choco
late, cocoa and cheese seem to
be clearly proven offenders. Oc
casionally white bread aggra
vates a case. Certain drugs such
as bromides and iodides can pro
duce acne-like lesions. _
Blackheads commonly are as
sociated with acne. Untreated
cases may persist for several
years until adult age is reached,
when it most commonly disap
pears spontaneously. There are
exceptions to this, some cases
disappearing after a few months
and others becoming chronic and
disfiguring if not treated proper
-Iy. ' ' ' .
Most cases respond readily to
treatment, and usually the re
sults are gratifying. Since many
cases are definitely associated
with some underlying general
condition, it should be remem
bered that it is useless to treat
the skin alone, without correct
ing any existing underlying fact
or or eliminating foods that
might be aggravators.
Constipation, menstrual disor
ders, infection or other factors
should be corrected if present.
Careful analysis of individual
food habits must be made, and
it is sometimes essential to pro
hibit tobacco, tea, coffee, foods
high in fats and oils, chocolate,
cocoa, cheese, nuts, pork, iodized
salts and white bread.

Girls and . boys should not
spend hours in front of the mir

their skins and aggravates the
condition. Cleaning the skin well
with soap and warm water every
night and morning is useful in
removing the excess secretion
from the little skin glands.
Blackheads should be removed
with a blackhead extractor. Sun

helpful and frequently give
