SAVE FATS ! The shortage of fats makes increased col- lection of used household fats from farms and small towns imperative to help meet war and ci- vilian needs. It seems that city residents are unable, or find it difficult to save fats like people on farms and in rural communities. Consequently, it is up to us to supply these fats by saving when and wherever possible. A GOOD DECISION Apparently the Legislators are not going to be stampeded into passing Governor Wall. gren's favorite liquor bill whereby the cocktail bars or commonly known saloons will be brought back to the State of Washington. .We certainly feel that the present Steele Liqour Law, which has been a model for several other states, is better than Governor Wallgren's "sale by-the-drink liquor act." It is our belief that the state is not ready as yet to go back to the old saloon days in order to satisfy Governor Wallgren or the liquor inter- ests. @ A WARNING TO ORCHARDISTS The United States Employment Service re- ports that we have an ordeal ahead that will dwarf our labor troubles of the past. The arm- ed forces have-taken an increased number of ag- ricultural workgrs and the number of American workers for the harvest will be even more limit- ed than in past years. It is true that Mexican Nationals will be here again this year, However, a report that German prisoners will again be shipped into the valley to help in the harvest means little. The Mexicans did an excellent job last sea- son, but the German prisondrs had an agree- ment whereby they picked only 40 boxes of a_..pp- ples per day. This picking of only 40 boxes per day causes a hardship on growers as they have to use five times the amount of picking equip- ment as they would with an apple picker who normally.picks from 150 to 250 and more boxes per day. We will probably have more difficulty than ever with the labor shortage this year and it be- hooves us to do all we can now to prepare for NEWSNOTES The Columbia River Young People's Fundamental Founda- tion held a meeting Friday night at th Brewster Log Church. Tonasket, Electric City, Pater- os ,the Bar and Brewster were represented with about 85 par- taking of th dinner. Rev. Eleonor Stephens was the speaker. A special feature was a song by Misses Barbara Harper, Kay Goehry and Betsy Milner. The .next meeting will be at Tonasket on March 30. With its powerful filmization of Maxwell Anderson's celebrated stage success, "The Eve Of St. Mark," 20th Century-Fox has brought to the screen of the Cari- bou a picture that will be for- ever remembered as the mightiest emotional experience to come out of this war. Featuring Anne Baxter, Will- iam Eythe and Michael O'Shea in a brilliant cast including Vincent Price, Ruth Nelson and Ray Col- lins. "The Eve Of St. Mark" is tile war's greatest lve story, the most understanding, searching drama of a soldier's faith ever screened. Here's the love story of GI Joe we've all been waiting for. The story of his temptations, his hiughter, his dreams and his ou- rage. It's a man's story of fight- ing men in their gun-thundering hour of glory; a women's story of pounding hearts in that last shin- ing hour together. So astonish- ingly frank, yet so very tender:-- and so brimful of blood-stirring drama is this film, it is the rare kind of motion picture experience that goes 'straight to your heart. Interspersed with lusty barracks' horseplay and ending with the emotion-shattering last stand on Bataan, "The Ev Of St. Mark" adds up to the most human war drama to date. MRS.
