Two Brewster houses went up in smoke, Monday, July 4, and Marshal Plemons says that but for the able assist- ance he received from Ben Holcmb, Virgil Stevens and H. L. Washburn, the fires might not have been controlled so easily. At 4 a. m. there are not many men available to fight fire. Somehow or other it should be possible for Brewster to have an organized volunteer fire department. It's done in other towns and should be attempted here. There could be enough men on the list to insure the availability of a good sized crew in case of any fire, day or night. Then have a fire drill every so often. Teach his job and let orders come from one man only. Incident- ally, som towns have quite a bit of fun out of these fire l drills,. The volunteers are divided into two squads. Each squai has a hose cart. A starting point is set and a spot several blocks distant is chosen for the site of the imag- inary fire. Two routes to this fire are chosen, each the same distance. Then at a given signal each squad goes in- to action. The first squad on the site, lays and connects it's fire hose and gives the losing squad a good bath while they are trying to get water on the scene. AT LAST, A BANDSTAND Construction on Brewster's new bandstand started this .week. From all indications, this addition to Brewster will be a most worthy one. The plans call for the latest type of small bandstands. This stand will be convenient for band concerts, practices, drum and bugle corps appear- ances, public speaking, etc. Let's help it along. YES, TAXES SHOULD BE REDUCED Louis Schwellenbach, who would be our next governor (if he gets enough votes), talked to a small group of list- eners Tuesday afternoon. He spoke on the subject of taxa- tion. But Brewster people have yet to hear their first can- didate who did not propose taxation changes and ways to lessen the taxes. It still looks as if Governor Hartley will be the next governor, regardless of what all the candidates have said. GET RID OF THE EYESORES While it is not so bad when you become accustomed to it--still the old wreck of a vacant building along the high- way at the north end of the city must give oher people a fine impression. The building should be moved out or torn down. As an eye-sore it heads the list. Several like buildings have been removed and it would help matters considerably to add this one to the tally. i i, j AFTER THEY WERE INTRODUCED " political campaign in at hand. Every four years, under the provisior of l our constitution, it is necessary for the people of the United States to choose a leader for the ensuing four years. With the reat political con- ventions over, the campaign will soon be unde way. For many years it has been an economic axiom that presi- dential campaign years were lways bad 'or business, and we approach- ed the campaign months with some doubt and uncertainty even in times of prosperity. But this year the coun- try is already in a depression in which we seem to have reached the bottom, so that it is barely possible that the' usual situation will be re- versed and that the presidential cam- paigm year may see the beginning of better times again. We have had all sort of independ- ent political movements, almost from the beginning of the government, but every four years there comes to us a fresh realization of the necessity of political partie. Without them our government could not function in the way it was intended to function, i There have been two great political parties ever since the foundation of the govevmment, and we have gotten l along pretty well and made fair pro- gres8 since 1787. Even our enemies l admit that. It is to be hoped and ex-i pected that we will continue the two party system, and not adopt the Euro- pean type in which many blocs of voters with divergent interests, are represented by political organizations with the result that often many little parties must combine to form a gov- ernment. The inevitable result of such a system in times of stress is a dic- tatorship. Now for great political palsies to function properly there must be cloe and efficient organization, and the perfection of such organization must mean efficient and inspiring leader ship. For it is vitally necessary, ev. en in a free govermnent like our own that we have courageous, wise and patriotic leaders around whom the !adherents of the various parties may assemble. Real leadership is one of the necessities of the hour. Republi- earls from each of the forty-eight states asembled in Chicago, hose, by unanimous judgment, to pledge their faith in their leader of four years ago. Since 1928 we have been engulfed, as have all other nations, in a world-wide depression, but the rank and file of the Republican par- ty has approved the constructive ef- forts of President Hoover to allev- iate conditions and return the nation to stability and for that reason, through their assembled delegates have selected him as their leader in the all-important campaign of 1932.

After reading road signs one would believe that Omak would have its crop of ball players without at least getting players from the team they play against. SILENCING THE PACIFISTS i The plan of President Hoover for a reduction of one third in the armaments of the great nations of the world is the most important proposal of its kind in a generation. Its acceptance and carrying out in good faith by the na- tions involved would do a great deal toward relieving the world tax burden and starting the nations on the slow pro- cess to recovery. The proposals are so clear cut and so fair that they t ought to be understood by people everywhere, even the I European diplomats. They are based on the assumption l that the only way to disarm is to disarm and thatthe only] fair way is for every nation to make equal sacnhce. I At any rate President Hoover's clear cut and concise l suggestions ought to effectively silence our own profess-I ional pacifists and European politicians who have been) blaming Uncle Sam for everything that goes wrong in the world and demanding that he do something. The President has now put it squarely up to Europe: If there is no further limitation of armaments the fault will not be Uncle Sam's. The Senate has voted $500,000 to assure the continued appearance of the Congressional record for its vast army of nonreadets.--Los Angeles Times. whom we give our earnest and e,,- thusiastie support. Otherwise an army is a mere mob. A political party with- out a leader is a mere masquerade, but the very essence of denocracy is citizen cooperation, not unfair, un- wise and destructive criticism. Presi- dent Hoover has the unflagging con- stancy of an honest heart. He recog- nizes the reource of wealth and sin- rely regards the necessities of the needy. He knows no latitude, no longitude in his tireless efforts to help every man, woman or child in this country. No political position, no piled up wealth, no social station reaches a higher plane than the one on which our President stands by vir- tue of his humanity." i : mll Storage tanks for conserving steam have been constructed in Sweden to equalize the load of producing plants, says Popular Mechanics. Stean manu- factured in slack periods is stored in the reservoirs to carry the heavy burden of rush hours. Dandelion  and other weeds can be cleared from your lawns by a chemical "gun" designed for killing individual plants. By "shooting" each weed with one of two suggested sprays, the grass is not damaged. A duplicate key for your car hid- den about the chassis will enable you to get into the ear if you lose the one you carry. Interest in the evangelistic meet- ings being conducted by J. T. Jac- obs o Wenatchee and G. L. Williams of Walla Walla in the McKinley: building, is being maintained very well, according to those who have been attending. Quite a number of persons are attending reguarly every evening, as the lectures are so con- nected that to miss one is like los- ing a lnk from a chain. The song service preceeding each meeting is en- tered into quite enthusiastically also. Last Sunday evening Mr. Jacobs took up the subject of "The Devil, ls He a Personal Being? Who Made Him?" He showed from th Scriptures that Lucifer was created by Christ, but through jealousy fell, aml became Satan. "tie is an aetu:,!, personal being'," stat-d th.: pcaker, "bUt :'. eoP.ltlCred foe through Jesus Christ." There was no meeting July 4, but Tuesday in the discussion of "Where Are the Dead?" it was shown that "the living know they will die, but the dead know not anything," but are asleep in the grave till the res- urrection. Spiritualism was pointed out as the work of Satan, in the Wednesday ev- ening service, because his angels are the only ones who can do these things The question of the location of hell was discussed Thursday, with the con- clusion that hell will not exist till :he wicked are resurrected after the millenium and this earth becomes a molten lake of fire, which will lmrn: up, not just torment, but will burn up the wicked. "As Sodom and Gom- orrha . . . suffered the vengeance of eternal fire." Jude. 7. Evangelist Jaeobs says a very inter- esting program will follow next week. These will be some of the subjects: Sunday, July 10--Billions of Gold and Millions in Want. What is the So- lution? Monday, July 1 lThe Whole Duty !of Man. 'luesday, July 12Christ our Ad- vocate. Wednesday, July 13Court Week in Heaven. Wien Will it Be? Thursday, July 14--The Final Judgt'ent. ttow Will It Be Friday, July 15Mr. Williams will speak on "When the Whole World is Bankrupt." There are seventeen political par- ties in the French chamber of depu- ties but they don't all have to hold national conventions. JULY 8, 1932 Well, anyhow, since the depression started, a lot of parents are staying home long enough for their children ;to learn what they look like. 'Mexico was rocked by a violent earthquake last week. Maybe their Congress has been trying to balance the budget, too. WestinShouse WITH THESE REMARKABLE NEW FEATURES Thousands are acclaiming it!

THOUSANDS AN[ COMING TO WESTINGHOUSE IHOWROOM To Inform... qlN the distant past, before the dawn of civilation, 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 mough, or a huge bale fire was lighted on one of the castle's towers to summon 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 profi by the advantageous method of using the newspaper as a means of spreading infoTaation. IfrHIS practice is ADVERTISING. q'rHOSE individuals or firms who advertise, believe they have a message which will be to your advantage to read.
