THE EDITOR 00ABOUT THE, i J i Variety of Measures in Prospect for Election of November ..1946 Olympia, May 23- With more than seven months to go before initiative petitions can be circula- ted it now seems that there will ...... be a number of matters before the voters at the election net year. Among .the initiatives it seems that there is likely to be one which would clearly define the qualific.ations of a legislator and prohibit a member from ac- cepting an appointive office after his election ,to the law making body. Labor, Industry and Republicans Agree On This One An initiative wich would n- crease unemployment ompensa- tion by 25 percent and retain the merit rating of industry has been agreed upon by representatives of labor, industry and members of the republican state central com- mittee and may be offered by the lab-ter as sponsor. Another which .the republican committee is con- sidering would eliminate the means by which a voter could - -II_gP. lever or make ma1?k on a pa'p' barlof and-vote for an entire tcket. This law could work for or against either party but the proposed change might make for more intelligeat voting affd reward the individual office hoi- der who has toiled to deliver .a mare efficient administration than others of his party. Attempt to Liberalize Liquor Law May be on Ballot ConsiderAtion is ,being given o ,the possibility of a measure which would in effect make the present that way accomplish what was not done at the last legislative session. Some of those favoring more li- beral liquor laws seem to feel that they might be more success- ful at the polls than in the legisla- ture. As a balance to this plan we 'hear of a group Which is consider- ing at least .two measures which would have an opposite effect. One of these is a suggested mea-" sure directed at the advertising of liquor within the state. The other would be patterned after a law now in efect in some states which would hold tavern owners respon- sible for damages caused by pa- trons who are permitted to drink oo much in their places of busi- ness and aterward cause injury or damage to persons or property. The result of this law is said ,to be far reaching in some states here it is now in effect. Referenudum Measures Seem Sure of Places on Ballot From best reports we are able to get it now seems that when the day for filing referendum peti- ons arrives. June 6, both Refer- endums No. 26, the game ,board reorganization measure and No. 27, 0he forestry board measure, will be assured places on the bal- lot by large margins. Sponsors of the forestry board measure con- tinue tO predict that their peti- tions will contain a record num- ber of names regardless of ,the late start they made. This late be- ginning was due to the necessity of going to the supreme court and having the emergency clause these b.;lls carried declared without ef- fect by the high tribunal. ontlnued On Page 4) " Brewster Grade Graduation Friday 1:00, P.M.

ONE NUMBER FOR LIFE BE SURE EMPLOYER GETS RIGHT NAME AND NUMBER With many returning service- men entering the labor marke for the "first time, and with Students getting jobs in the coming boll- manager ef #he Yakima :Tme of- the Social Security Board advised- all workers "to show their social securify ecount card to every em ployer for whom they work." This is essential .to rotect the worker's wage record, which is maintained under this name and number for his future monthly in- surance benefits, Mr. Boetcher pointed out For example, there there are approximately 575,000, Smiths on the Social Security Board's records and. therefore, there are approximately 575,000 accounts under tl%e name of Smith. It is important that no two Smiths have the same number. .In stressing this ,point of ore number for a worker's lifetime, Mr. Boettcher pointed out that employers are required ,to report eaz Worker's wages, under both his name and number to the Gov- ernment every three months. Then these wages are credited by the Social SecurLty Board on eac worker's individual ledger sheet, under both his name and ntmber. For .these reasons. Mr. Boot- eeher said all workers in industaT and commerce should follow this advice: 1. Show your card to every em- ployer for whom you work. 2. Make sure that he copies both your name and number cor- rectly so that your wages may be credO, ted to your account, 3. Hang-onto your card. Don't lose i; but if you do lose it, get a duplicate. Never get a differert number. Two numbers may cause some loss of wage credits and con- sequentiy of benefits. If you have more .than one number, go to the nearest office of the Social Se- curi] Board and see which one you should keep. You need only one number throughout life. BACCALAUREATE SERVICE Rev.

PAYMENTS G00VES PP%--ff00cER00 ....... CHANCE TO PLAN Higher dairy production pay- ment raes for butterfat have been announced by WFA to encourage maintaining the current high level of milk prodttCton with special emphasis on increasing the short >butter supplies. Butterfat payments for April will be made at 17c per @ound and for the other wo months of the quarter, May and June, at 10c. The 3rd quarter, July, August, September rates will be 13c with an increase to 17c on butterfat for the following 2 periods--Octo- ber, November, December, and January, February, March 1946. Payments will be made for 2 cal- endar months following any one period. The County AAA Office again reminds producers that they have only the rest of May in which t5 apply for payments on their first quarterly production which consists of January, February and Mach. The milk production payment rate for April is 70c per hundred weight with a drop to 35c for May and June. The 3rd quarter, July, August, September rates will be 55c and the rate from October through March of 1946- 70c. "This announcerent of the pay ment rates for a full year ahead gives our prodtcers a chance to plan their operations on a more definite basis," J. E. Wilkinson, chairman of the County AAA says. "It is both patriotic and pror fitable to increase your milk and cream production just as high as possible these days. The produc- tion is sorely needed and there is a particular need to increase the deliveries of butterfab for butter production." Cut out this item and save for reference as to payment periods and rates. VISITS PARENTS Miss Florence Warner, of Seat- tle, is spending two weeks with her parents, Mr. and Mrs: Ray Warner.
