PLAN TO GATHER COUNTY HISTORY Okanogan County school chil- dren will have county history rupning out their ears by June, if any criterion can be drawn frmn the enthusiasm of the coun.W committee, which assembled in O- kanogan Friday night for the first meeting of the year. Twenty- three school and lay people from Chesaw. Coulee Dam, Winthrop ad way points met to f0_rulate ,plans for gathering and organiz- ing OLanogan ounty history ma- terial. School textbooks wLl then be written from data collected. Emphasis will be put upon the project throughout the school term, all over the county. The ac- tive participation of all county residents is solicited in collecting writing up and typing the mater- ial. It is felt that all can make valuable contributions to this worthwhile roject. Findings will not be limited to early county his- tory, but will come up to the pre- sent time.

Because of this gener terest, we have ask',:  Ve Gilbert who is superintende elections in the office of Reeves, Secretary of State give us a condensed summar just how measures are subml mm to the voters. From bis report we give you the following: Any Legal Voter or Committee May Present Initiative Any legal voter or eommite'e may present an initiative. Mea- sures may be presented to the Sec- reta.ry of StaVe on Jan. 5, 1946 and for six months thereafter. Of course those coming in early will ,have that much more time to-cir- culate their oetitions. Those which are most likely to succeed will be in early. Five copies, typed, must be presented, and a fee of $5.00. paid. Not more than ten days later a ballot, title is presented to the sponsors having been prepared by the Attorney General. This is used as copy for the aetition forms, which are printed by the sponsors at their expense. Solicitors Must Not Be Pald Signature* "lte law specifically provides that solicitors must not be paid for otaining signatures. There must be no less than 50,000 sig- h-of .regi vatara, and these are carefully checked by the Secretary of State to determine if the number is sufficient to qualify the measure. Most petitions are submitted with no less than 70,000 naanes for there is always a loss when the checking is completed. Petitions must be completed and filed by close of business July 5 next if measures are to appear on the ballot for November 5 elec- tion. While there are many other points to be considered this gives the voter a general idea of the necessary method by which he measures will get onto the 1946 ballot. Suprem f Court Held Increase l'n Pay For County Officials Illegal Recent arecision of the state su- preme court to the effect that th law .pass by tte last legislature by which an irmrease in pay of $75 per month for elective county officials is unconstitutional brings interesting problems. The court held that the law was clearly a vi61ation of the state constitution which provides in Article 2, Sec- tion 25, "The legislature shall never grant any extra conpensa- tion to any publi officer - nov shah the compensation of any public officer b increased or di- minished during his term of of- rice." Some counties have paid the increases, some have issued warrants and are holding them. The opinion here sems to be that there is no question regarding the legality of the payments, up to the time of the court decision• Court Decision Brings Joy To Hearts of Republicans lpublican members of the le- gislature, meeting in Seattle over theveekend, were quick to point out that the decision in this case woud seem to apply in the case of increases in salaries for state elective officials as well. They aintain that the conditions were .m.ost the same and that the o- pmmn of the acting Attorney General approving the matter should be viewed in the light that official is one of the number that are being increased by this legis- lation. In fairness to these critics it should be stated that the re- cords show most if not all of the republican mmbers of both hou- ses voted against this billwhen it was up for consideration. Also, the fact tha all the officials af- fected are democrats might have had its bearing on the support of the bill. Short Items -Plenty of Competition is in prouect for th position of Uni- (Oeetia!
