FEBRUARY :12, ]932 INLAND EMPIRE WHEAT MOVING Cereal Milling Company At Chicago Taking Lots Of Grain SPOKANE, Feb. 9Wheat from the Big Bend continues to move rap- idly going east at the rate of two ars per day during last month, with new orders now on file reported to' total about 10.0 cars. The Washburn Crosby mills at Chi- cago have been the large takers of this grain for use in breakfast coral production. The Northern Pacific railway re- ported a fairly large volume of wheat being nmved on consignment to Coast terminals to get in under the wire before the higher freight rates are restored February 20. Grain circles 'eport the Inland Empire farmer as reluctant to sell wheat at the prevail- ins market. The carriers estimate approximate- ly 10 per cent of the present Inland Empire crop Will rmain in the in- terior at the close of the crop year, which will be far less than in pre- vious years, as it is unusual for the carryover of wheat in this region not to exceed 15 per cent of the crop. Inland Empire cash prices of wheat were marked down I cent last week on both filling and export grades, contrary to the course of the futures market, with the exception of Port- land, where May wheat closed an eighth under Friday. The close of the similar delivery at Seattle was an eighth up, while at Chicago the same option closed a quarter of a cent bettor than Friday. Coast fu- tures were 1% cents higher than Chicago Disturbed conditions in the Orient and that Pacific northwest wheat prices are above those of the world level were advanced as con- tributing factors to the lJgging mar- ket for Pacific exports from Ameri- can ports. Grain exporters, however, appear- ed to have adopted a waiting attitude in onnection with the Far East e- vents, it was indicated. III Sing again Ililady at your Cleaning!

By JIMMIE KAYE BROWNE OLYMPIA, Feb. 7There recently appeared in the political arena two proposed bits of legislation. These came from the office of the secre- tary of the Washington Retail Grow- ers' Association in Seattle. ! It is believed that the plan is tel attempt these bills as initiative meas- ures. The first is an Anti-Discrim- ination Act designed to hit chain stares, but so drafted that it might be construed as intended to repea! the regulatory provisions of the state public utilities act. The new proposed bill makes it unlawful for a public utility to sell the tax problem by making a flat 15 I per cent reduction in all real and per- sonal property valuations, :that such reduction but represents the decline in these values over last year. Whether this will mean a tax de- crease or a tax increase now with the tax levying bodies. Here is where the crying need of budget con- I trol such as sought by the last sea- l sion of the legislature is needed. I With proper budget supervision} and control, the taxing bodies would I be held at least to present levy ca- / actnents, so that there would be a 15 I per cent slash in taxes next year at least. Without such budget control it | is up to the taxpayers. power at different rates in various parts of a cornmunit" or count- A i and how government costs can be re- :. '.

Democrats of the state holding their state .convention at Tacoma have placed this state on record as favoring the nomination of Gov. Franklin D. Roosevelt of New York for president and the Democratic standard bearer. Roosevelt's sponsors are now claim- ing 678 of the 1,154 votes to be cast at the Chicago convention on June 27. It requires under the two-thirds rule 770 votes to nom4nate and this is one of the reasons why the Demo- crats of this state followed their pre- vious actions and voted against this century / old tradition of the party. The Roosevelt faction is now so confident that leaders are already planning on trades at the convention on the vice presidential nomination. This state has a candidate in the per- son of Senator C. C. Dill. At least four governorship bubbles were blown and turned into the air at tho recent county conventions of the Demoocrats. Clarence D. Martin was hailed at Spokane; King County brought its two into the limelight, Lewis B. Schwellenbach and William H. Pemberton ; Lewis county sponsor- ed Former State Senator A. E. Judd, while Thurston county launched George Yantis, Democratic member of the House of the Legislature. The Democrats promise to have as many eandidates in the race as do i the Republicans. This fact may hold i the Democrats in the Des-socratic pri- maries allowing Republicans for the firsttime since 1907 to nomihate without interference, their candidates for public office. Edward L. French of Clarke coun- ty is reported here to be looking o- ver the Republican governorship race with a possibility that he might be found in the contest before the ill- ing closes. To date there are but two avowed candidates, the governor, Ro- land H. Hartley and the lieutenant governor, John A. Gellatly. Of course this does no mean that the end in the number of candidates is in sight by any matter of means. More can be expected. When the Republican State Central Committee gathers at Seattle next Friday it will select and reconmend to the national committee a woman to be named as national committee member to fill the vacancy caused by the death of of lrs. J. L. Hughes of Yakima. The committee will also select a new vice cha/aan, to fill the'vacancy caused by the death of Mrs. J. S.I Baldridge of Sedro Woolley. This means that the committee wo- men members should be out in force: I next Friday as for years the mle! i members have permitted the women i to dictate these selections voting for the majority selection. In the recent disturbance over the handling of highway funds there is an inclination on the part of the general public to ignore the fact that the Leg. islature and not the highway director allocates the funds to the roads on which they axe to be used. Of course the director can use his discretion as to where and when contracts can be let, hut he has not the say so as to what roads shall get appropriations. That's a duty of the Legislature, one of which it is most jealous. There is no question but certain leaders in the Democratic party as well as in the Republican ranks, are determined to make the pohlbltlol mount of trouble for Washington manufacturers and producers as well as distributors if ever enacted into law. The second bill is called a Fair Trade Act. It prohibits the selling of a standard article at a phce less than that fixed by the manufacturer. This bill also has some of the ear marks of being hastily prepared with- out a study of the federal trade acts which expressly prohibit price fixing. This act legalizes such actions. The railroad mployees of th na- tion have agreed upon a flat ten per cent cut in their wages, a reduction which has already been taken by vir-: tually every business and industrial activity in the country. By their actions the railroad men have sliced $225,000,00.0 a year from the vaih'oad payrolls, or in other words have removed from the hori- zon temporarily at least the fear that i this spring would see at least eleven of the nation's railroads in the hands of the receivers. With a freight increase which will bring an additional return of $100,- 000,000 and the present wage cut, the roads will start the year with ap- proximately $300,000,0.00 more than they had looked for. The next big problem is the ques- tion of taxes. Here the railroads, like every other business and industry, as well as property owners, large and small, face the much ticklish ques- tion of the present day. Unemployment insurance by the state as well as old age insurance were advocated by Chairman Ivan Merrlek of the King County Demo- cratic Convention at Seattle last Sat- urday. It is interesting to note that none of the Seattle papers comment- ed upon this fact in their stories of the convention. The platform committee of the King County Democrats ,however, did not apparently take the matter seriously. They made no mention of it. The King County Democrats also faced and rejected another rather un- usual plan, that of George F. Cotterill former state senator, now a port com- missioner of Seattle, and always a !loading prohibitionist. Mr. Cotterill's plan simply author- ized the calling of a county conven- tion in each county shortly after the September primaries, and then a few days later another state convention, so that the party and the nominees could rewrite party platforms to suit individual needs. Briefly the Cotterill program was primarily for the purpose of permit- ting Democratic party nominees to re- pudiate any proposals of the party made prior to the primaries. It would provide for a trimming to meet the popular trend of the wind. Whether by deliberation or acci- dent, the King County Democratic chairman mentioned all prospective candidates $or the presidential nom- ination with the exception of Gov. Ritchie of Maryland. Reports rom other counties show that where the ground had been successfully tilled for Roosevelt, Ritchie was not men- tioned. Wonder why, when every in- dication points to his nomination as the best possible bet if Roosevelt falls to muster the necessary vote. One of the numerous initiative bills being circulated in the state, that calling for pesmmnent registration of voters, has already gone over the top according to reports reaching here. King county has ttrned in a huge number of signatures. Another init- iative, that providing for a new :orate game egmmtss.ion s alaq reported  be nearing the top rapidly. if Brewster can down them, it gives us a good chance at the county, tour- nament.

Al- though this class does not teach bas- ketball, the boys use the ball and sometimes they become skilled en- ough to play on the regular team. Tbe physical education class for boys is not a place to play basket ball alone, although the boys are us- ually shooting baskets or doing man- euvers which come from basket ball. Physical education has helped the boys in this school very much dur- ing the last two years.. GIRLS' PHYSICAL ED.

Wilkinson, Tacoma President Washington Congress of Parents and Teachers The parent-teacher organization, which is the principal and best-known expression of the home-school move- ment, has been developing for a per- iod of 35 years. Until quite recently we in the United States have consid- ered this activity the result of A- merican ingenuity and progressive- ness, but we know new t,xat it is re- ported as active in ";5 countries and is doubtless existent ia some form or other inevery civilizc.d country. The parent-teacher membevhip i: the Unitud State:; is in excess of a million and a h:df members in 22,- 000 local association:;. Progressive organizatious ave active in Alaska, Canal Zone and Itawaii. In the state of Washington there is a mevnbe.,ship closely approachin.g 0,000 in 600 local associations. The parent-teacher organization is founded upon the belief that no in- stitution alone can carry the full re- sponsibility for the education of the child, and that there must be full and understanding cooperation between the two institutions most affectin.' the child's life and development if the best results are to be obtained. That parents and citizens may better understand the ai'ns and purposes of molern education and the means used for carrying out these ideas, fa- thers, mothers, neighbors and teach- ers meet together ia this friendly or- ganization at }east once a month. Theodore Roosevelt once said that every individual owed some of his time to the upbuilding of the profes- sion to which he belonged. The par- eat-teacher association serves to give the parent this needed opportunity of study and knowledge for tile profes- sion of parenthood as well as to es- tablish friendly contacts with the par- ents of his child's scimolmates. The parent-teacher organization is non-commercial non- sectarian and non-partisan. Its membership repres- ents a cross suction of community life, and no p:rson is barred from membership re.'ardless of race, color !creed or social position or economic i position. One important policy o J: the organization is absolute non-i,terfer- once with the administration of h schools but giving, always intelligent support to tlLe system. Contrary to a common miscotc-p- tlon the organization is not a crusade to reform the schools and comnmni- tics, nor is it a lyceum, course offer- ing entertainment. It is simply a great school for parents and teach- era, neighbors and friends, with one .major' objective, to know the child and to protect and guard his interests Th parent-teacher association aims to elevate parenthood to the dignity of a real profession, requiring- study and preparation. For this purpose ev- ery efficient association has at least one well directed study class studying same phase of chihl life. Tbe parent- teacher movement from the National Congress to the smallest local asso- ciation is a great school 'of adult education. It offers opportunity for people to meet together, think to- gether, and act together in the con. sideration of all conditions that have an influence upon the lives of child- ren, IS YOUR CAR In proper mechanical and electrical condition to overcome disagreeable winter driving :onditions?
