Mr. Linder,-who purchased .the bakery some months ago, stated that he welcomes Mr. Wilson in- to the business as there is ,too much for one man to handle. He also reported that Mr. Wilson is in Portland buying additional modern quipment to increase the output of the bakery. The installation of the new ma- chinery has caused the opening of the bakery to be delayed from last Monday to about April 1. BROWNE TELLS OF SESSION OLYMPIA, MARCH 21 -- Now that the members of the late 29th session of the Legislature hae reached their home towns and will be explaining to .their constituents aB about it, it is ime to take an- Other look at ,the appropria- tions passed down here during the past 60 days. In round numbers the Legisla- ture appropriated $562,000,000, or better than one-half billion dol- lars. This is for the coming two years. This state has an estimated po- pulation of 1,900.,000. This inclu- des every man, women ahd child within the state, of ll races, of all degrees--- even those confined in various institutions Indians on reservations, and more than 60,000 persons now drawing old age pensions rrhe Legislature  has placed "a debt upon this population--call it 2,000,000 in round numbers- of $562,000,000, or $281 per cpita. In other words, during the next two years, every soul in the state will be called upon to dig up $281 to meet ,the bill. The annual per capita tax is $140, or $11.50 pe month. This mean t lint a tax of ' %is-p a" c'--'Ti" I  required to foot the bill. Where is the -money coming from? Out of the arnings of the workers of the state-they are the only producers. Every family of four persons-- and this is found to be the aver- age-is taxed $560 a year. When it is considered that in- fants, school children, inmates of institutions, old age pensioners, and tens of thousands of others are not producers and cannot foo`t their per capita tax, some idta of what. the producers must pay can be had All of this at a time when ev- erything possible is being done to encourage new industry, new business and new settlers to come to Washington and aid in its in- dustrial and commercial develop- ment. One of the amusing aftermaths of the recent session is the rather forced attempt on the part of some of the elective officials ,to show that they came through stronge r with their pressure groups than ever, when, as a mat- ter of fact, the session should mark the death knell of these organizations. The so-called educational lob- by did not gain strength, neither did it demonstrate its political power, as the state superirten- dent asserts. In fact this group hurt itself as 'did the Labor Coun- cil. These pressure groups are largely r.espo#bl, for .he. tre mendous appropriations and should be held to rather strict accounting. Governor Wallgren asked for and was given rather huge and broad powers. He wanted to have. suprem.p control over every de- partment under his command, and got it. This leaves him in the posi- tion of being absolutely and whole ly responsible, a responsibility few governors would care for if they were thoroughly awake to the situation and would never volun- tarily assume. The next two years will find the state administrative forces (Coatlnued On Page 4) NEW BUS FOR METHOW LINE Priorities have been granted and Joe Lockhart should shortly ceive a new 29 assenger clipper bus. Mr. Lockhart recently purchas- ed the Methow Bus Line and has built a record for giving service. This will now be improved as soon as the new bus arrives as it is by'far the best accommodation that has been offered ,the Methow Valley residents in commercial passenger transportation. The new bus" will handle two round trips from Winthrop .to Ptteros daily. It meets the Wash- ington Motor Coach and the Ok- anoKan Valley bus lines. Poolroom.

Farm own- Brewster, to prepare it for the Ford Agency that Fred Fred Rawley ahd Dick Lawless. as partners, purchased the build- ing known as the Lincoln, Tues- day. This includts the building, equipmeat, furniture, fixtures and good will. The building has a beer parlor, plroom, several modern rooms and a restaurant. The latter basintss is leased and will continue under the same man agement. The former owner,H. G. Haw- thorne, has enjoyed the reputa- tion of operating a very relmt- able establishment. He purchased the building 20 yeas ago and has made extensive Qnprovements on ,the property during that time. r. and Mrs. :Hawthorne will leave for Phoenix, Arizona where they will make their horace. They have not announced the business they will enter in Pheonix. Mr. Rawley and Mr. Lawless jointly own t Pastime as ,the latter purchased a half i-ntexest from Mr. Rawley last September. The two men state they will operate both places as much as tlrere is sufficient manpower to operate them. They also stated they do. not expect to change the policies of either plaoe to any geat extent. . Though the amount of the pur- chase price was :not verified, it was rported that the two men paid Mr Hawthorne $17,000 for the business and :property. ASSESSING SYSTEM Ol00D Plan Which Originated In This COunty Car- ties In Bill .... Of i 'rs  of Okan0gan County is the fact that Governor Wallgron ihas sign- ed House Bill No. 45 which pro- vides that the county assessor may require personal property asessment sheets `to be delivered to him by mail or in such other manner as he may prescribe, states H..A. Yates, county asses sor. This bill was introduced in the legislature by Representative R bert M French pursuant to reso- lution presented by Mr. Yates at the last meeting of the state as- sessors' association and adopted by that body. This method of as- sessing, which has been used suc- cessfuliy c in Okanogan County for the past ten years, has also been used by various other coun- ties n the eastern portion of the state, and their endorsement .was instrumental in getting the meas- ure through the legislature. The success of this system in the past, Yates feels, has been du to the general cooperation of the property owners who have recognized it not only as an econ- omical measure but also as a time saver both for them and for the assessor's office. Now that it has the sanction of the law Yates be- lieves that 'this method will be qUite .generally adopted by asses: sors m the farming sections of the state. The new law does not carry a penalty clause but an earlier sta- tute makes any person or corpor- ation liable tO a fine for giving in a false list or for faflur'e to:sub- mit a list of his taxable i)ersonal property when called on by the assessor to do so. Response of the farmers in ending in their sheets this year has been as god as,us-" ual,-Yates states, btt there are still quite a number that have no come m. He requests that all sheets be mailed or brought to him within th ext .thirty days if possible so there will be ample time for checking in the office.
