A. iLLtISPIIF:, Editor and Publisher t PJklg EVERY THURSDAY AT BREWSTER, WASH. ntered as second class matter at Brewster, Washington Notlem of eh,eh entertainments where an admission fee is harg- sd, cards of thanks, resolutions of aondolence, or notices intended to promote plate buaess of any kind, must be paid for at regu- lar rates. THE MACHINERY BACKLOG The backlog of orders for farm machinery is greater per capita in the Northwest than in any other part of the United States according to a re- port made by Professor L I. Smith, head of the department of Agricultural Engineering, Wash- ington State College. This is from the present acres that are being tilled and the demands which will arise from new projects will greatly intensify the demand for farm machinery. When the 1,200,000 acre Columbia Basin gets under way the demands will be tremendous for farm machinery. The Northwest sees a bright future ahead and we want to be ready .to help in the substan- tial growth that is coming our way. DIVIDE THE WEALTH The limit to which Organized minorities can go when reaching for- public money is well illustrated in the wording of House Bill 131, now before the legislature. This bill provides that first class school districts having a larger surplus at the end of the fiscal year than anticipated, may use the money, to increase the pay of teachers and other employees or increase the number of teachers. In other Words, divide the district's balance among the employes. If it is fair for the employees of school  districts it must be fair for emplyes of other governmental units. The same principle would govern if we were to divide the state's balance among state employes, county balances among county employes and city bal- ances among city employes. LOAFERS AND HOARDERS The Mead committeehas made public glar- ing examples of loafing on the job and labor hoarding. Stories of a similar nature from unofficial sources have long been commn knowle.dge. Pri- vate citizens can recount from their own exper- ience, disgraceful examples of deliberate loaf- ing on war jobs. Many conscientious workers have quit war jobs because they could not stand the waste of time they were required to endure. The answer of criticism of lalior loafing and labor hoarding is always, "We have produced the goods." That may be true, but at, what a price! How much more could have heen produc- ed otherwise! We have now reached the point where both money and nian-hours are growing scarcer. Let us hope that if the Mead Committee is not able to penalize or punish labor, loafers or labor hoarders, that revelations which it can make will arouse the nation and shame the of- fenders into a correction of their ways. STOP SPIKED WINE We gravely doubt if there is any legislation, which has a chance to pass, that would do more good for the people of the State of Washington than to stop the sale of fortified wine. The results of this cheap, raw alcoholic drink is apparent in every small town and city in the state. Men and women, who get the habit of drinking this cheap, spiked wine, become dere- licts or human flotsam, with little or no will pow- er to quit the habit. They are more to be pitied han condemned for they have a disease that has caused by a product which should be removed from the market. We have been given to understand that this spiked wine is now being prohibited in other states and we see no reason why Governor Mon C. Wallgren and Legislature should not favor legislation to stop the sale of spiked wine. There has been much said to .improve our liquor laws and this would certainly be a step in the right direction.

Is this loss of life going to be a was? Or will we have a bet': ter world to live i, with ever- lasting peace? Where all men can live in harmony and all people of the world can work together to create a more beautiful life for each other. The men alone on the battle- field Can't accomplish this, The battMfield is oniy the first step. Bloodshed and de)t h only rids us of our enemies for a "short while. It does not construct the type of world that Christianity longs for. God gave us this earth, and ev- erything on it. However it is plain to see thatit is not being used in the manner it was created for.  How much longer are youths going to be robbed of their lives? The first tep is beginning to see light. It is time to start the second one. That second step is to make up our mind on what kind of a world we want. We no longer can set back and take just what comes along.
