JUNE 24, 19,22 i i ,, One of our friends who went to a Nurlesque show the other night tells us that the chorus girls wear just as much as they did when times were prosperous. l , , , Entered as second class matter at Brewster, Washington. l i| i L i: i _ i i i i POINTING THE WAY The recent action of the Interstate Commerce Commis- sion in their ruling on freight rates on boxed apple ship- ments, may be taken by growers of the Northwest as a signboard and an admonition. A signboard pointing to some other means of transportation and an admonition to :depend upon their own initiative and ideas to lead lead them out of their difficulty. It is said that Providence helps those who help them- selves and it is possible that water transportation may be the help that will replace the aid expected from the Com- missTon. It's the same old story. For years growers on Brewster Flat hoped and looked forward to the time when their lands would be irrigated through governmental aid. Af- ter many false sarts and costly surveys, the idea was a- bandoned. Then the growers, forced to depend upon themselves, organized, and pumped water from the Co- hmbia river to their orchard lands. Some Chinese philosopher has said, "Every house has a door, though some people may be blind and connot see it." Apparently the door has been found. FOLLOW THE REGULATIONS The mid-year vacation season will be upon us next week end, with it rodeos, celebrations, camping trips, etc. This year, more than ever, the call of the great out-doors will be harkened to by many. Before the camping party leaves for that lake or stream back in the National Forests, it will be well for the person in charge to see that each car is equipped according to the regulations recently made public by the Regional Forester at Portland, Oregon. These regulations will be found in an article.on the front page of this newspaper. These regulations and ales are necessary in the inter- eats of forest preservation. Although a great majority of those who camp or travel in the forests are careful with fire, there are always a few who have little regard for con- servation of natural resources. It is the misdeeds and care- lessness of this minority that make strict rules and regu- lations necessary. BETTER REGISTER NOW Unless you register before June 20 your signature will not be valid on any of the numerous initiative petitions that are now being circulated. Although the registration I books do not close until August 23, the time for circulating these petitions will soon be ended and only the signatures of registered voters count on these petitions. THE CHINA WAR WAS A PIKER (Okanogan Independent) In four months of fighting in China during the recent "unpleasantness" there, six thousand men, women and children were kille in the battles. During the snme four months, statistics just compiled show, eight thousand per- sons were killed in the United States n automobile acct. dents. Twenty thousand persons were wounded in China dur- ing the period under consideration, and a quarter of a million persons in the U. S. were injured by cars. ,Whole front pages of newspapers were devoted to the Chinese war but nobdoy made much fuss about the tre- emendously greater damage done by American auto- mobiles. It should be remembered that a man killed by a car is just as dead as one who dies in battle. Bear that in mind while driving; and remember that this is a pretty good old world in spite of the depression. Consistent careful driv- ing may lengthen your span of life many years. ,,% The oldest town so far found by man has been unearth- ed under a heavy covering of taxes. Paul Whiteman has reduced 100 pounds or so and an observer reports the discovery of two hitherto tmknown saxaphone players in the orchestra.Nashville Banner. The bathing suits are scantier than ever this year, but that isn't on account of the depression. ,, llJ , i Well if there really is much hoarding of money going on just now we are sure of one thing: very few newspa- permen are in on it. The Japanese are said to be casting longing eyes on that Siberian railroad. Well, if they will come over here with some real money they can buy all the railroads they want, at bargain prices. to construct an equitable, tax law and especially the protests against !s ome of the special sales and nuisance taxes, indicate that perhal the He,use leaders who favored a small and inclusive sales tax were not so :far wrong after all. For example: :Protests against the so-called nuisance ta on low priced admissions to :theater are serving to call attention once more to the rapid greyish of the motion picture industry in the United States, and the udisputed public in- terest in it. Fm a small beginning the iuustry has now become one o'r the big leaders, and the period of de- velopment has,' been considerably less than one generation. Just to show how difficult is r2e task of fixing equitable taes the representatives of the motion picture theaters and the producers declare that a tax on low priced admiion wculd clos e a gTeat many of the smaller theaters in the United States. Evidence was to the effect that more titan five thousand had already been closed, due principally to the epres- sion, by January, 1932, tl being about twenty per cent of the total number in the United States. Argument for the theater nuisance tax is that the people can get ont. without theaters. Leaving aside the question of furthe crippling a great industry, giving employment to thou- sands all over the ountry, it may be true that we could get along in a fashion without amusements. As a matter of fact we could get along without anything but food and shel- ter, but if everything else were taxed out of existence would life, on a purely animal plane, really be worth living? And would there not soon be revolutions of all ort Th e change which has been made ia the ameneUt an culture of the smll town by the development o t.t motion picture is not always realized. In the old days ninety per cent of the people knew nothing first hand about opera, about the great draza- atic stars, the pl and mural pro- ductions of the day. The othe ten per cent, more fortunate in worldly means, was able to journey to New York or Chicago Once or twice a year to acquire culture direct. But" the modern talking pietare has changed everything. The g:atest operatic and and dramatic stars, and the latest dramatic and musical production and scenes of travel and current interest: are available nightly in the small: theater of the average town and the price is no longer prohibitive to any-i one This accounts for th widespread objection to tke nui,nce taes, which objection is not coming lone from! those who are directly interested in the buine which are proposed to be taxed. Of course taes must be ! raised in some manner, but there will i be far less complaint finally if these! are spread over a broader area and not confined to a few industries, and especially thoe in which the great nass of the people are interested. For in the long' n, let it be remem- bexed, the consumer has to pay the tax, and when he pays it directly through the box office for a low pric- ed amusement ticket, or by affixing! a special stamp to mething which: he is compelled to purchase, he is im- tediately reminded of the dperession and the way he is helping to pay for it. Indirect taxes ov taxes spread'o- ver a broad base are easier to pay and cause a minimum of complaint in the long run, Nobody like to pay taxes but if one does it without know- ing it, at least his morale is better and his hope for the future greater. WINTHROP WILL CELEBRATE 4TH The eommittee plans for Win- throp's July 4th celebration include a two day program of rodeo, baseball, ! dancing, etc. In ddition th sur- rounding country offers fishing and boating attractions througgh numer- ous lakes and streams.

' '1" it" ' r'------ 'T: = To Inform... qlN the distant past, before the dawn of civilization, prehistoric man summoned members of his clan to a meeting" place, by beat- ing on a tom-tom or crude drum. When the common good de- manded that many gather at one place, this was the best means of notification. DURING the Dark Ages, when each feudal lord considered himself a king in his own right, runners carried the message by word of mouth, or a huge bale fire was lighted on one of the castle's towel's to SUlnmon the loyal serfs. {]AND in Colonial times each town had a Crier who would an- nounce to the public, messages pertaining to the general wel- fare. The historic ride of Paul Revere illustrates one of these methods of carrying information to a large number of people. {]NOW, in modern times, the need of informing the public of happenings and events of interest, is many times greater than in the past. To this end newspapers are published. News of local and national importance is brought to the people, clearly, ac- curately and quickly. Individuals, societies and organizations, all recognize and profit by the advantageous method of using the newspaper as a means of spreading information. q'rHIS practice is ADVERTISING. I]THOSE individuals or firms who advertise, believe they have a message which will be to your advantage to read.
