HERALD.REPORTER, BREWSTER, WASHINGTON FE'BRUARY 8, 1945 ONLY YET WORN BY MILLIONAIRES .HF2jd2)00ORT00 L. A, IF iditor and Publisher PUI.IIBLI BVlgRY THUISDAY AT BREWSTER, WASH. ntt0md as second  matter at Brew#,er, Washingtofi Notices of ekunflt entertminments where an adndssion fee is charg- ed, emrds of thsm, reeotuglons of condolence, or notices intended promote ln4Vate'bmflnem of auy kind, must be paid or at regu- let rates. THE LIQUOR BILL The proposed liquor bill is no surprise. It was understood that it would be written to give a monopoly and the wording.shows that it was the intent of the proposed liberalized liquor bill to do just that. It will allow a few cocktail bars (ge- erally known as saloons 25 years ago) to the se- lect or favored few. We can easily imagine who the select few would be who would get these rich financial plums. In fact, some strong supporters of Govern- or Wallgren have already been busy purchasing and otherwise tying up some select spots in the state with the hope that Governor Wallgren's Liquor Bill meets with the :approval of the legis lature. We feel that any more liberalization of the liquor Iaw is a gross mistake. We have one of the model liquor laws of the nation and it should not be changed -- not even to pay a political debt. BLIND JUSTICE A critic of American business says that the War Labor Board must control Montgomery Ward or go out of business, at great peril to the winning of the wax. The musicians' union defied the War Labor Board and the President of the United States. It was rewarded financially insead of penalized, and the War Labor Board didnot go out of busi-. ness. The musicians' union and Montgomery Ward could be wiped out and not a ripple made in the war activity. It is difficult to understand why such pro, cedure is countenanced in a land where all men are supposed to be equal in the eyes of the law. But the pressure increases each day for the pas- sage of laws and their interpretation based on class privilege, rather than equal justice for alk O HELP THE BOY SCOUTS The weeks of,February 8 to i inclusive have been designated all over the nation as "Boy Scout Weeka,' . Scouting has been in existence for 35 years and has done a wonderfuI'job of youth training In recent years the t0wisin this section have become Scout minded and various groups have been donating fundsto keep this worthy move- ment active Various men, in past years, have  donated much of their time as Scout leaders and their on- ly reward has been to see the excellent develop- ment of the boys in this Section. Scouting has come into more than usual prominence since the war as army officials have explained time and again that men who have been Scouts are more quickly molded into well- trained soldiers These boys have been trained in disciplin.e, have a knacR of meeting emergencies when or/their own resources outdoors. We sincerely hope that the support of our Scout movement continues and grows as he need is cnstantly increasing. JERRY HAS THE POWER Jerry O'Connell is seeing to it that the Po- litical Action • Committee of the CIO is moving in to control he Democratic party in this state. This .. : .had ’h.

'/ :.f- He has bee•me the executive secretary o " • the Democratic State :Central Committee and as such wields a lmwer to'be reckoned with. There was quite a storm of protest raised over this PAC-CIO domination of the Democrat- ic party. T:his made it necessary that the PAC- CIO use more subterfuge and Jerry was suppos- gg '' edly ousted from the executive secretary posi- tion However there is a marked friendship and -association beween State Democratic Chairman Harry Huse and Jerry O'Connell and the latter still wields the power in Democratic circles The Democrats apparently did not want the, Northwest regional PAC-'CIO boss to appear as their front man: It looks as if they have removed his title but let him keephis power This man Jerry O'Connell seems to be the man who has to approve of the political appoint- ments to state job This shows he power the PAC-CIO has in the State of Washington.

O BREWSTER BAKERY ERNEST LINDER, PROI WELCOME, FRIENDS, TO PATERO4i, WASH. HIGH QUALITY GROCERIES MEATS . FEEDS SERVE YOURSELF AND SAVE W. J. Herwig of the temperance • forces and Dr. Newton .E. Moats, chairman of the civic affairs com- mittee of Washington State Coun- it of'Churches have. held a num- ber Of, meetings under auspices of Washingt0n Temperance As- Sociation which they report have ben well attended and they say the opposition to any change is obviously increasing. Theme of "BY:THE DRINK" FORCES DO the opposition is why bring all NOT AGREE AND DRY OP- POSITION PRESENTS A • UNITED FRONT OLYMPIA, Feb. 7 When Governor Wallgren's bill, - which would modify the liquor laws and permit liquor by the drink in th,e classified locations dropped into the hopper in the House it became immediately apparent that it is the Governor's bill and not th bill of all who hope to benefit from liberalization ,of the present cont;ol law. The most enlightening fact was the evident marked differenee ex- isting between the various seg- ments of the liberalization group or groups. • Goveraor Does Not Go Far Emough Says Armstrong "The Governor's bill is far too xtreme on the moderate side and if it were but a little more mod- erate then it would be no modifi- cation at all" is the comment of H. C. Armstrong Of Seattle. Arm- strong is chairman of the House liquor control commitVee and evi- dently would like to see a real change made toward the "wet" side. R. W. Dale of the restaurant owners group opposes th Wall- gren measure saying that "the bill sets up a monopoly favoring the larger communities and the downtown districts in the cities." Beer And Wine Interests Are Said To Oplse Also Because it does not include beer and wine and the entire is- sue adds to growing problems of all who dal in alcoholic bever: ages, the beer and wine interests are not happy about any phase ,of the situation we are told. This displeasure may reach th point where opposition in the legislative battles now on may be exerted-by these interests. Some high in the distillery busi- ness are said to feel that the en- tire matter is ill advised at this time and would lik to see quick and negative action taken to stop the growing storm of discussion. At any rate the bill s in and the battle is on. Anything can and many things will happen before it is finally disposed of. Drys Seem Confident And Show this agitation at this time when there is no apparent popular de- mand for it. and when the inter- 'ests and energies of the people could better-be devoted to war matters which are critical. Pro- tests written to members of the legislature are having an effect. Volume of these protest letters is constantly increasing.
