McAley, and . Work Done By " : Harvey.Stivers. Mr McAlvey, who Legislators is Master at Pateros, introduced .the subject of a proposed airport, ---offYMPIA, March 13 -- Gone but not forgotten. The twenty- ninth session of the state legisla- tore has finally closed up its af- fairs and departed But it will be a long time before it is forgotten. One thing stands out like a lighthouse--the powers - that- be behind the recent session had no intention of forcing the cocktaiI bill to a showdown issue. As had been predicted in this column many weeks ago, it was merely a smoke screen. Its purpose was to keep the attention of the news writers here focused on the issue and away from the well worked out program of legislation, the bulk of which has apparently managed to weather through both the Snate and the House There was plenty of horse-play This was also part of the overall picture. Where lip service-', was given and playedup most promin- ently for free enterprige, develop. ment of th statd, encouragement of venture capital, etc., again:., and again and again, when the final l check,up is made, it will be found! that nothing was overlooked which would centralize govern- ment, open the way for abs01ule control over everything--in the state, crack down on industry and ,business, and lay the foundation or future trouble. t was not so 10ng ago l that "an ] inkling of the entire program was { hinted at in this column. The ,...  is modelled after the not- orious rth Dak- ota plan which thrives during as a post-war project to lye locat- edsomewhere .beteen the two to- wns. Harvey Slivers was ,then call ed upon, and explained the desira- bility of such a landing field. He pointed out. that after tte war ,the Civics Aeronauti Authority wat an airport every thirty miles, Wh- ile now the only ones in this area are at Okanogan and Orovitle. He commentfld on the fact that orchardists ,are finding the hor- mone spray very successfuL and that zinc sulphate spray can be done-fr0m the air at one third the cost of that put on from the ground, viz. $7:00 per acre. But bases for operation would need to be nearer than at present. .... It 'was announced that the "Traveling Grange Hall" will be brought from Pateros to Brews- ter on April 10, and taken from here to Malot on April 2t. It Wts reported that blood hanks equipped for receiving contribu- lions from donors for shipping abroad are no closer than Seattle and Portland. Wenatehee accepts contributions for local use Numbers on the program were appropriate for the month of March. Irish songs were listed, and two were sung; favorite trees were named for r011 call; artist i.c representations of March weather :were attempted on ,te black board, The Suggestion was made that some provision for safe escape from Y, he hall in ease of fire is desirable. MONROE ON LOAN BOARD Will Aid In Work Of Get- ting Veterans Located Sterling T. MonrOe, well-known business man of Okanogan and veteran of World War I has been named a mmber of the Okan- ogan County Veterans' Farm Loan Ctrtifying Committee, an- nounces George Ruply, Acting County Farm Security Super- visor and seeretary of the com- mittee. Authorization for appoint- merit of a business man prefer- ably a veteren was made to sup- plement the present committee of three leading farmers.

H0ever, he and the conservatiwe Democrats are going to discover they cannot and will not build a -political rna' chine on this PrOgram ]ut have laid the ground-work for a p0ll: ! tical whirlwind Which i going to witm the party off the map in this state during the next few years. Absolute control over the en- tire state administrative forces has been placed in the nds of the governor. It looks::fine now. But in months ;head Wallgren will find out he has laid himself open to a world of woe. The situation here was sun that members like Chart Pitt of Snohomish, looked .up0n for years as one of the strongest of the left-wing element or faction, couldn't follow along, roared out that he c0udn;t-stomach anymore of it and bolted ..part of Wall gren'sgrogram. ,.. ..... -",>knov ,this means my politi- cal end," he said"insubstance, "But the time has come tYp. this trend." Pitt is bitterly oppos- ed to creating a dictatorship in the state, but the people .who el- ected; him and for Whom he has been a' most consistent and |oyal worker, had the b, in their' Seeth and ran hog wild. Pitt will pro- bably never again show upere as a legislator. The same is true of several others who blindly fol- lowed in the "lobby leadership" which apparently had the upVer hand throughout the session. At the eleventh hour ,the Sen- ate snatched out those two ntor- ious bills, HB 401 and 403, so- called banking measures, which Senator Henehan.:sought to pock- et veto, slammed them th.rough the Senate so they are now on allgrens desk for consideration. T llse are rather short innocu- ous r Woklng measures. They ap- . pearea late in the session, spon- sored by 0"Brien of King p.d Chambers of Spokane. A com- panion measure; or one which was needed in the set-up,. HB 32, sponsored by Harry Martin of Seattle, a conservative Democrat who was informed it was part of the Democratic party program to oust Pepublicans from places of power in the state came in among the first bills to appear. This bill removes the ceiling on the amount of collateral a state bank must have to accept public funds as a depository. One of the first actions of the governor when he was firmly se- ated in the driver's seat was to re- move the bank examiner" and na- me one of his own henchman. This opened the way.

He was prepared to, leave for Brewster when his father, who had been improving, suddenly be- came worse and passed away on February .16.

SOON Box Factory Run Will B Up To Average. This Year The Gamble Lumber Co. saw- mill will start operating next week on a full schedule. The pluming mill will start oper ating shortly after the sawmill gets into full production and th box factory will start work with- in 30 days if a crew can be locat- ed to do the work. The Gambie Lumber Co. saw- mill and box factory was started in 1910 and has operated every year since D. S. Gamble, pioneer resident of Brewster, started the Gamble Lumber Co. mill and box factory and operated it many years be- fore his death. Following his de- mise his daughter. Mrs. Martha Gobbets, has been general man- ager oi the plant. Mrs. Gebbers said that plans now include turning out as much box shook as possible if the nec- essary labor can be found. It is thought that the box factory run will lye up to the average for the p_4pt several years and every ef- fort will be made to get a full crew as soon as possible. Mrs. Ceebbers said that the logging crew has been getting out a large supply of logs and deck- ing them near the mill and in the woods during the past oFen win- ter. This will contribute largely ,to the success of the. season's op- eration this year if there is avail- able labor to operate both the mill and factory at ,the same time.

SAVE EATS [LETTER FROM SOUTH SEAS Methow Boy Sees Plenty Of Action A letter has ben received from Eugene R. Bergenholtz, M. M. 3C, USNR which reads as fol- lows: From somewhere in the Pa- cific. There has been a modifica- tion in the Naval Censorship out here and that gives us more to write about. So here goes some information whLch should Itad you to believe that what we have SAYS WFA[.oplay. doing is not mer'e child's Si'e we hgve been in eommis- ion we have visited the following: 4 Cents And 2 Red" Points Will Be Paid For Each Pound Farmers as well as housewives are asked to sav all surplus fat on the farm when butchering and at locker plants in order to meet the increasing demand for fat to meet war and civilian needs. Recognizing the demand upon war industries for the making ef munitions, medicines and mang other vital war materials based on the supply of sufficient fats, e- tension services throughout the country are cooperating with the War Food Administration and lo- cal fat salvage committees in or- der to meet these needs. A large source of surplus fat can be obtained when animals are butchered on the farm. Tallow from mutton, has !ittl use for household purposes but 5s vitally important in the defense_ of the nation. Even a teaspoonful is im- portant when multiplied by 12,- 00.0,000 farm and small town fa- rallies.

We have participated in the bombardnemnt of the Palos Is- lands and Maidanas. We were in the supporting group i the occu- pa of the Marianas, Palos, Ley and Luzon. We have sup- ported air strikes against Formo- sa Bormin% Volean/t Islands, Ryn k3m Islds sad the French Indo China and ..China coast.
