F'T'T .... f,i'i, NUMBER 40 LEADERSHIP IS LACKING Communism Gaining A Foothold In State Olympia, April 3 - Twenty-five years ago-a quarter of a century- this column was started. It wa at a time when the state and t entire Pacific Northwest faced a most dangerous political situ tion. An attempt had been made to start a revolution, a so-called workers', revolt, in this state, the general strike which .tit*d Seattle industry into a knot for sevRl days. This was an outgrowth of the First World War, when radi- cal elements, "taking advantage of the war and the fact that millions of young men were away from home, opened a drive for a mew ideology, Communism. A socialist A. C. Townley, grabbed political control of North Dakota. He swept through ,the midwest and into the Pacific N01,hwest. The Nonpartisan" League, and kindred other grgups including the I. W.W., the forerunner of the C.I.O., pJantled-political con, trol of the entire Pacific Coast, opening the fight in Washington. Radicals Mark Time But the 1920 defeat only drove the I.W.Ws under ground. They waited flair turn, slowly working into ranks of organized= labo, in- to /he schools and the colleges, _d ino__the ehurclms nct, various groups and00 I were started :t ,eeaeh tls']em i were sought for agitators and leaders how to work. Hundreds were sent to Russia .to study Communism first hand, to find out how to create disension and disrupt the-America sy.m of economy. Governor Louis F. Hart wa re-elected to  bffiee as'- i6i He had been acting governor for two years following the death of Ernest Lister. HaLt brought into being the - -  Adr'...trative Code, and laid the foundation for the ultimate seizure of all power in the state and the placing of it in the hands of one man, the governor. Four  years later Roland H. Hartley was elected upon a cam- paign pledge that he would see to it ,that every worker had a chartee to work where and when he saw fit without domination and con- .trol by any group. He was label- ed "anti-closed shop." He swept into office by a huge majority. Then it was that the under- ground movement of the radicals found their opportunity and came out into the open The elec- tion of 1932 opned e way. Radicals In Washington The best evidence of what was hppening is to be found in a book publishecL a few years later, edited and written by a woman who hd been one of the leaders in the attempted general strike revolution, twelve years before. She had gone ,to Russia, return- ing only after the ,Roosevelt ad- ministration came into office In her book she declared "it was like coming home" when she reached. Washington, D.C., to ._find in places of power, all those who had been such "ardent work- era" in the revolutionary move- meat. The radicals and "the com- munists were "coming into their own." - People Subsidie@ The leftists bcame active Hungry people are not free peo- ple. It was ea,y to play upon their sympathies, to make thera -eve that their hopes and their, i%ture rested in the rlical move ment. The federal government started throwing millions right and left. Voters wre literally subsidized wth their own tax money. Clever organizers with an argument, "the go,/ernunt owe you a living," cameinto pulitiel -_--or01 n6t only of the nation but of the state Legislature Weakened During ,the last quarter of a century the state has seen a slow but complete disintegration of its State Legislature. This atually, started in 1907 when the Direct , Primary came into being and etripped from the major political parties all control or supervision over their candidates. For years the state carried on under the primary, without any great de- gre of radicalism getting the up- per hand. But then came the (Continued On Paste 8) WELBORN RETURNS FROM TVA ARF_.A Tom Welborn, who is a me:n ber of the' Columbia Basi COm- ndssion, returned last 'riday after un insption trip' f the Tenes- see ValIey AttthoritT srea.

Gillesp/e, Publisher Brewster, Washington Dar Mr. Gillespie: Baxter Hospital in_ Spokane is to care for more soldiers from the states of Washington. Idaho, Ore- gon and Montana than any otlmr. This I believe is not ,too generally known. The hospital is located in a rather dsolate area and .the War Recre- ation and Welfare Coordinating Council is endeavoring to land- scape the grounds that they may be a thing of beauty and restful- ness for the boys who have given so much for us all. There will be Memorial Lane with a setting" of flowering crab trees, evergreens and deciduous trees, shrubs and flowers, and it is all being financed by voluntary con- tributions of money or orders for nursery stock of suitable trees and plants. Many of our boys are gone, have given their lives for their country others are wounded and some of them may spend many weary weeks in Baxter Hospital. Would it not be a lovely tribute .to those who have gone if we of Brewster, Pateros and Bridgeport would snd something to this Council. PATEROS CLUB MAKING PLANS Suey.
