THE SPORT OF KINGS Finally i•the government has acted after three years of war to stop the waste of manpow- er, gas and• supplies, that have gone into the horse and dog racing business. There have been many demands that such wasteful non-war act- ivities stop but nothing was or apparently could be done until after the election. Hundreds of spotters were appointed and many Cases of the illegal use of gasoline and transportation fcilities were found to exist. Still no order was forthcoming to end horse and dog racing until a little thing like the election had been disposed of satisfactorily to the govern- ment in power. DO TOURISTS DEMAND LIQUOR? # The newly elected governor Mon C. Wall- gren, gives the tourist trade argument as the ba- sis for his statement that :liquor should be sold by the drink. We do not think it would make any differ- ence whatever, to our tourist trade, if liquor were sold by the drink over the bar or in bottles by permit. The tourists will come to this •state entirely on the basis of our recreational facilities, the nat- ural beauty of our.state, the hotel and auto park accomodations and tourist attractions like the Bonneville and Grand Coulee Dams. It seems outside the realm of reason to think that tourists would shun this state beeause we do not have saloons or the politely called, cocktail bars. g The Governor-elect will have to find a bet- ter reason than catering to the tourist trade as an argument t'o still he demand of people that saloons or coektail bars be placed at every city, town or crossroad. HOUSEWIVES ARE DISTRUSTFUL The same remark of distrust is being spo- ken everywhere by housewives who trusted the government ration authorities. The cancellation, without notice, of the red and blue food stamps caused considerable bitterness. Ispecially is such bitterness to be expected as the'ration auth- orities had given the people the undersandinK that no action was contemplated to cancel the food stamps. In fact, the best way not to conserve food is to create such mistrust as the present •action of the government in cancelling the food stamps without notice; Housewives will flock to the stors immediately after their food stamps be- come valid for fear of their cancellation by the Ration Board. It seems that in the long run the government is defeating its own plan by such action in cancel- ling stamps and causing distrust among the peo- ple. We sincerely hope the people continue to trust and cooperate with the ration authorities in order to further the war effort, but these same ra- tion authorities are certainly not using very good tactics to get the public to cooperate. M)tGNUSON'S APPOINTMENT Covernor Langlie's appointment of Con- gressman Warren G. Maguson as Senator to re- place Senator Homer T. Bone, who has resigned, is an act that is generous and one that is design- ed to help the state. The Governor might have made any other appointment than the one he made and played politics but apparently the Governor has done what he thinks is best for the state. Arthui- B.:Langlie will go down in history as one of the most efficient and honest govern- ors this state has ever had. He investigated: thoroughly whether Mr. Maguson could be of value to this state by getting his appointment now and serve as a senator in the 78th Congress rather than wait for his elected term o] office to start on January 20, 1945. This early appointment of Mr. Magnuson to the Senate gives him an edge over other fresh- man senat0m. Consequently Mr. Magnuson will be able to get better committee appointments arid should thereby, be better to serve the state. We congratulate Governor Langlie on this appointment and fusing to be swayed by those who desired him to pla politics by someone else to the Senate for the remaining month in the 78th Congress.

Winter Born Calves Need Much Vitamin A Winter-born dairy calves may not get as much Vitamin A as the calves born in the spring, sum- mer and early fall. That's because vitamin A is found in green feed ---in good pasture, high quality leafy" hay and in silage, says M. B. Nichols, Extension dairyman at the State Cotge o W.ashington• Studies by dairy scientists now show calves are: born 'with very litttle vitamin A hence depend on their mother's colostrum--that's the first milk -- for an immediate supply• 'In turn, the amount of this vi- tamin in the colostrum depends on what the cow is fed. So if the cow is either kept .on good pasture, or has plenty of good Ieafy hay and silage, it is likely she has a good supply of vitamin A and the calf will be well and stl"ong. scientists says the calf should have the colostrum the first three days, then have whole milk for about a month. Feed the calf a good quality leafy hay as soon as it will eat this hay. Cool a burned pan gradually. Never pour cold water on it, for this is likely to make the metal buckle and leave an unsteady pan. PATEROS 00NEWS NOTES Homes County and State Agricultural Extension workers, meeting for their 33rd annual conference a the State College of Was1ingtor/ in Pullman recently, drew up an intensive educational program to assist Washington's farm families in meeting present and postwa problems. • Many suggestions for the i45 Extensioh pi-ogram came from the farm families themselves• and were presented through county agents. A highlight of the coming sea- son's activities, will be a county- state college demonstration day, scheduled for nearly all of the 39 counties during late January, February and March. The theme of this demonstration program, which will be along imilar lines of. the Extension service's popu- lar farm labor-saving machinery demonstration tour of last year, will be 'guides to successful farm- ing'. Many Divisions One section will be devoted to resettlement for veterans a n d war workers. This section will stress economic-sized farm units on soils capable of producing a living. Control of redents,-:insects and parasites such as rats, cattle grubs and lice will highlight another section.
