PAGE | HERALD-REPORTER, BREWS'nERo WASHINGTON MARCH 7, 1941. nil i .+ THE HERALD.REPORTER L. A. OILLESPIE, Editor and Publisher PUmLISHED EVAtY FRIDAY AT BREWSTER,WASHINGTON Entered as second class matter at Brewster, Washington I Netiees of ehuroh entetahtmente where an admission fee is charg- J ed, ear of tsnb+ resolutions of condolence, or notices intended | to promote pldvate'buneas of any kind, must he paid for at regu- L lax rates. WE MUST PAY Whenever the voters vote for added obliga- tions for the state there must be a way to raise the funds to meet the increased expenses. A ma- jority of the voters asked that $40 per month be paid to the aged and a way must be found to meet the increase. Governor Langlie has asked the Legislature to enact a three per cent sales tax to raise the huge sum needed for these pensions. The sales tax is a fair and equitable meth- od of raising the sum and as much as we hate extra taxes the +increased sales tax looks like it is a necessity in the payment of the added ob- ligations voted by the people. We cannot continue voting obligations for the state to meet wthout the undesirable in'creas- ed taxes that must follow. THE LEASE-LEND BILL SHOULD PASS House Bill 1776 should be passed immed- iately in one form or another as the position taken by our President and the State Department has been that Congress would support the adminis- tration in its foreign policy. The mistake was apparently first made by the administration taking such a definite and showmanlike stand early in the power poli- tics of the world. However, this stand has been taken and we cannot now afford to have the international position of our nation weakened by the failure of Congress to sus- tain President Roosevelt. This is a day of power politics and we have played our part in this great international game. The movement of men, planes and fighting ships to the Philippnes is a part of power politics and it would make our President look like he was standing almost alone in'his support of Great Britain if Congress would not favor a lease-lend bill of some sort. President Roosevelt is in this game up to his neck now and we have to stick with him in his foreign policies to see that he, as our spokesman to foreign nations, is not branded as a bluff. IMPROPER PROCEDURE A group of people, Who met at the Brewster school building the evening before the school election, were a little too ambitious to elect the slate of candidates they selected. After the meet- ing the names of the candidates for positions as school directors were placed on the blackboard in the room where the election was held the follow- ing afternoon. These names were left for all prospective voters to see. This display of the names of ++ those selected by the group Friday evening, and those who had previously filed, could easily influence the voters, which would be contrary to the election laws of the State of Washington. It is clearly stated in the election laws and it is generally known that any campaigning within 50 feet of the polls is breaking the law. It is not unusual for people who crusade so strongly for "civil rights" to be the first ones who propose to break the laws to benefit their pur- poses. However it might be that the group or in- dividuals that met last Friday to select the sticker candidates may not have understood the law,, al- l ........ has been common knowledge for years that campaigning within 50 feet of the polling place was prohibited by law. The election board should be especially careful about permitting anything of this na- ture to aist -- having the names of some of the candidates on the blackboard. This act a- lone could outlaw the election if someone de- sired to contest it. Such a contest would be costly and disturb the harmony that has ex- isted in the administration of our schools for many years. Superintendent Johnson removed the names when it was called to his attention that such a procedure was illegal. We believe that the school directors elected --Hoke Smith, Mrs, George Wilson, Roy McLean, Art Brown and Henry Lautenslager are all ca- pable and honest. They have the best interests of the schools of Brewster at heart and will give ex- + "icellent service lathe positions to which they have been popularly, lected.
