NOW THEY KNow HOW FARMERS FEEL Consumers Who recently had the coupons in their food ration bobks summarily invalidated, can appreciate the problem that faces the farm- er under 57 varieties of regulations and restric- tions. ; Ordinarily the farmer plans his production schedules years in advance. Investments in crops are made on the basis of probable prices at har- vest time. Long experience with the laws of sup- ply' and demand teach the farmer what he must grow to stay out of bankruptcy. At least this was the way the farmer operated before the age of regulation and subsidies descended upon him. Now, like the consumer he knows not what to ex- pect next. A government directive may cut his acreage, reduce prices when his crop is ready to harvest, or put him out, of business. It is not a pleasant way to live.  k . ., O YOUR JOB IS FOR SALE In all the talk about manpower shortage, one fact stands out clearly -- under the present labor monopoly in the United States men are prevented from working unless they first pay to get their joba If you don't believe this, try to get a job in a war industry. No American citizen should be forced to join any organization, whether it be labor, relig- ious or political, before he can earn his living Allowing labor unions to remain outside the laws which regulateall business corporations, while collecting millions of dollars in dues, is a travesty on justice and a burlesque on govern- ment. Such tyranny within a so-called free coun- try cannot be continued without ultimately lead- ing to dictatorship by either labor bosses, politic- al bosses or both. Freedom flies out of the win- dow when a man must get permission of another man to earn his daily bread. O THE SCHOOL LOBBY The rural school districts are up in arms at the insistance of the State Superintendent of Public Instruction in working for the complete centralization of the school system: She worked for the bill to get the school districts consolidated and probably will head the state's most power- ful lobby to get further power to dominate the schools of the state. She asks for a tremendous increase in the budget for her department for the coming two years and will marshal the strong school lobby to get it enacted.- Four years ago Superintendent Pearl Wana- maker was given the I)ower that placed her on the load to almost dictatorial control over the state's school system and she now expects to ex- tend that control. . Now is the time to write to your Senators and Representatives to stop this odious school consolidation and centralization. Keep local control of our schools. MORE REGARDING SENATOR MILLER The Herald-Reporter stated last week that if the newspaper article is true regarding Sena- tor Don Miller leaving tile conservative coalition of conservatives to join the left wing group, he cannot properly represent the counties of Okan- ogan and Dougla -f - -'L*'I'" We thomas strange that Senator Mil[er-shoulduddenly swing to the radical side as he has never been a "left-winger." ff-Iowever, we believed the newpaper article which stated that Mr. Miller accepted the full responsibility for breaking up:the coalition Of conservative Democrats and Republican in the state Senate to join the left-wing group. Now comes the report that Senator Miller, in conference with the other, nine conservative Democrats, decided that he state could be best served by all ten conservative Democrats trying to work inharmony with the Senate for the wel-, fare of the state. The reports likewise upheld Senator Miller as still being conservative and interested in sound legislation and in 0p.P0si'gn to the crack-pot legislation by the lef:wingWs. We feel hat Senator.Miller has done a cred- itable job in the past and hope he will not be lur- ed into supporting any legislation which will not be a credit to the stace. Probably the best course for us to follow is to watch Senator Miller's record during this ses- sion of the legMlature. ......... u PATEROS NEWS NOTES 1WRS.
