him THE BREWSTER HERALD Publshed Every Friday at Brewster, Washington. D. L. GILLESPIE, Editor and Mgr. Entered as second class matter at Brewster. Washington. BE CAREFUL July 4th and the week-end of the Fourth are usually noted for the increase in accidents of various kinds. In most cases celebrants seem to grow more careless than they usually are and accidents ranging from those of a minor nature to serious injury and death, are common. Be careful with fireworks. Be careful when swimming or boating. Be careful when driving. Traffic will be heavy and vigi- lance lax. And Be Careful With Fire in The Woods. MEET MR. GENSINGER Speaking about representatives, we are pleased to offer our readem the announcement of E,d Gensinger. Mr. Gen- singer is an orchardist of East Wenatchee and a live wire business man. We believe a vote for him will be to the best interests of Douglas and Okanogan counties. If there is any big project to be put over or any move that is for the general welfare of this section of the state or community, Mr. Gensinger will most likely be connect- ed with such undertakings. We belie,e he is capable and will well serve the people if elected to the office he seeks. CONCERNING JUDGE NEVINS Judge Nevins, who recently occupied the bench at Ok- anogan hearing a number of cases during .the absence of Judge Brown, is from Lincoln county of which Davenport is the county seat. Mr. Nevins was formerly at attorney at 0 dessa. At the last election he cast his hat into the politic- al ring and was elected by a neat majority. He will again be a candidate for the office at the coming election and the people of Lincoln county can go to the polls and cast a vote in his favor and know they are voting for a man of the highest integrity, who is fearless in duty and is one of the outstanding judges of the Northwest. He is a stu- dent of law, a man that plays ttie game square, eithei" on the bench or in private life. The writer is personally acquainted with Judge Nevins and we wish him lots of success when the voted are count- ed over in our sister county. (Lincoln county papers please copy.) WATCH THE TAXES Up to this time we have had deflation in everything ex. cepting the cost of government in America and the result- ing taxation. Of course, as everyone knows, taxes are .now mounting because of the falling off of the federal reven- ues, and higher income tax rates and other taxes will be necessary until there are added revenues resulting frojn a resumption of normal conditions. It is obvious that there can be no real permanent im- provement in America until taxes can be reduced, and that the only way to reduce taxes is through a lessening in the expense of government. The one healthful sign ev- erywhere is that the people are becoming outspoken in their opposition to new government ventures at this tin. Governments everywhere, state and local, as well as the national government, are being importuned to reduce their costs of administration, and if the people who are protesting will only translate their criticism into votes next fall, there will be some real reductions in the cost of government before many months. In fact in many states and many communities, genuine efforts are now being made by officials to reducethe cost of government. It is not to be forgotten after all, that most of the tax burden shouldered by the ordinmT man comes to him from his local government, and it is here that the real tax reform can commence. The, Federal government is always under the watchful eye of political leaders and newspapers of the country, and is the first to reduce taxes when the opportunity arises. But it is so easy to forget a- bout the real burden of taxation--the local taxes--and to focus one&apos;s attention on the tax debates in Congress. If there could be some assurance that lower taxes would be the order of the day during the next decade, this in it- self would bring the assurance of better times. In the fu- ture the community .which is efficiently managed and has therefore a low tax rate, is the one which is going to at- tract new industries. We don't exactly disagree with the vegetarians, but we think a piece of onion is greatly improved by the addi lion of a pound of steak.

Latest word from Paris is to the effect that the government is going to have as tough a time in bal- ancing the budget as did our own Congress. Some figures made public by the ben,ch Minister of Finance are to the effect that there will be a deficit of $160,000,000 at the end of 1932 and plans are already beizg laid to reduce" military expenditure by ten per cent to effect a saving of $60,000,000 as a starter. It is true that France was not lav- ish in lending money to Germany and Austria, as were the Americn and British bankers, Iut she has loaned considerable sums to her allies in Central and Eastern Europe. These are political rather than commercial loans. If conditions in' Central Eur- ope get much worse, as they simw considerable evidence of doing, some of the French allies are going to suf- fer even more than thy are suffering at present, in an economic sense. The French have shown a great dal of satisfaction in the way the world has been drawing gold from the U- nited States and other countries and piling, it up in Paris. But if the French deficit continues and conditions get worse in Central Europe the gold may start sliding out of France fast- er than it was drawn from America.

To Inform... IN 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 notificaiion. q'DURING the Dark Ages, when each feudal lord considered himself a king in his own right, runners carried the message by word )f mouth, or a huge bale fire was lighted on one of the castle's towers to summon the loyal serfs. CJlAND in Colonial times each, town had a Crier who would an- nounce to the public, messag'es pertaining to the general wel- fare. The historic ride of Paul Revere illustrates one of these lnethods of carrying information to a large number of people. {]NOW, in modern times, the need of informing the public 6f hal)peuings 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. THIS practice is ADVERTISING. tTHOSE individuals or firms who advertise, believe they have a message which will be to your advantage to read. ,i:
