Blgttred as second class matter at Brewstcr, Washington. _ I nl iiii i ill i ill lUll WEEKLY MAXIM: "A lazy man is no worse than lead one but he takes up more room." a NOVEMBER 11, 1918 Fourteen years ago today, the greatest armed conflict the world has ever known, came to an end. To the youth of today, the word "Armistice" often means only a date in history, one which we observe as a national holiday. But to the older man or woman, to the veteran, the word has a vastly different meaning.. To the veteran it recalls that dreary November day when the or- der Came forth to "Cease firing." To the father and moth- er it recalls the joy of knowing that their son, if he had thus far escaped the mailed fist of Mars, would soon be home again. But to all of us it should be symbolical of peace, of an agreement between all nations and creeds, that conflict be a thing of the past. BACK TO ROUTINE AGAIN The national, state and county elections have come and gone, in most ihstances bringing great surprises to voters and candidates alike. For several months past, voters and candidates have heard, read and talked politics, with in- terest increasing as election day drew near. Now the sus- pense is over and the business world can again assume its routine work. Although the Herald is a Republican newspaper, it supported several Democratic candidates and although we were Republican in national politics we are glad the Democratic victory is as complete as the returns indicate. For with one party or another in complete control much more can be accomplished for natfonal benefit than when the balance of power swings from one party to another and back again. The American people have emphatically declared for a change in state and national politics. The change las been completely made and any credit or blaine can be correct- ly assigned, when good or evil is accomplished. LESS REGISTRATION BOTHER From all indications Initiative No. 58, providing for permanent registration of voters in this state, has passed with a large majority. The passage of this initiative and the administration of the laws and conditions it provides for should result in registration of voters being a much simpler matter. Un- der conditions obtaining at present, voters in city pre- cincts must register every two years and voters in rural districts must register every four years. The attendant expense and detail was a great argument for the passage of Initiative No. 58. THOSE FAT CATTLE WOULD BE HERE Bill Rogers in flying over South America said railroad trains were not running because high tariff between the countries had killed off foreign trade and that he saw great herds of fat cattle in the fields. But if Uncle Sam ever reduces his tariff on meat products those fat cattle will start right for the United States. i THE DOLE IS NO RIOT PREVENTIVE That the dole system is not a solution of the question of unemployment and public charity is evidenced by the situation in England where the London police have been compelled to battle several times of late with the riotous unemployed. A great many of our own people have thought that the dole, while much to be deplored, was in a measure at least a solution of the question of public help to those unemployed, in that it provided for the mainten- ance of those who were without means of suport, by the national government, the government itself obtaining the money through increased taxation. Of course this brings about the vicious circle, in that greater taxation means a greater burden on industry, with more business failure and consequently less employment, and .more peopIe to go on the dole, this in turn resulting in hig h taxes. But it now becomes evident that the dole itself, even granting that it could be maintained, is not a preventive of rioting and discontnent, as many believed it would be. The recent trouble in London abundantly proves this. Many people are surprised that there should be rioting and hunger marchers when the government is taking care of the unemployed through the dole. The excuse of the rioters, with communist inspiration no doubt, is that they object to the provision of the law which says nobody who has any other means of support shall be entitled to the dole. It is this provision which the protesters seek to have eliminated. At least that is the excuse for the march ing and the rioting. ,,, i, i i i J i, J, , An automotive engineer predicts future operation of ll|l in|l| i J nl i r= *a IHI I I I n I THE BREWSTER HERALD: BRKWSTER, WASHINGTON I i i II OPEN FORUM Under this heading will be pub- lished signed communications re- ceived by the Herald.

As a member of that august body I wish to state my posi- tion. When the gentleman who operates this said pool hall and card room ap- peared before the Commercial Club and acknowledged that he operated a poker table and gambled at pin- ochle but had the best place in Ok- anogan County at that, I considered that the city council had been hook- ed in a hole. As a member of the council I recommended that he should not be granted a license, but should the council see fit to grant this that there should be no reduc- tion. When I took the oath of office as a councilman 1 promised to uphold l the city ordinances; the laws of the !state of Wash., and the Constitution of .the U. S. When the gentleman admitted that he was permitting gambling, which is against the sttae law, to consent to the gTant]ng of this license would be violating my oath of office. , When the question of the reduc- it;on of the license came up, the li- cense committee recommended that it should be reduced 25 per cent or pro rata to the reduction of wages. It was voted that 50 per cent was a fair reduction, however at the same time, in order to keep the budget balanced, no reduction of salaries of city employes was proposed. I feel that to reduce the salaries of our water commissioner and city clerk 50 per cent would be unjust, and to reduce the revenue of the city without a corresponding reduc- tion of salaries is not fair to our little city. I hope I have made by po- sition clear. (Signed) D. D.

English III Class i ARMISTICE DAY NOVEMBER 11, 1932 By Rachel Mesa'is "So nigh is grandeur to our dust, so near is God to man, when duty whispers low, 'Thou must,' the youth replies, 'I can,' "Emerson. When on the eleventh hour of the eleventh day of the eleventh month, 1918, word went forth that the ar- mistice was signed, a disorderly place of joy reigned anmng the doughboys in the trenches. The frenzy spread to the furthermost corner of every war torn country. Peace and Harmony on this day is spread over all our land. Fourteen years ago peace was just beginning after many months of war. We honor those who fought and gave their lives that tl/is nation might live. Time, after fourteen years has sealed, hut not healed many a memory of horror, but to those who remain, war has failed to take on an aspect of glory and glamour. It is only right and the only way that we can repay them, is by paying due honor on this day. A veritable maelstrom of rejoicing broke forth on Wall Street when peace came to the war weary world. And then suddenly the tumult was still for two minutes while heads i wez'e bowed in silent prayer for the brave warriors who had given their lives. The glorious Stars and Stripes wave proudly as she signifies peace t,o her people, and she shall remain so as longs as patriotic youths re- main within her boundaries. ARMISTICE DAY PROGRAM An all school program will be giv- en this afternoon in celebration of Armistice day. The play "He Just Won't Talk," given by the members of the high school student body, il- lustrates the effects of the horrors of war on sohliers. There will also be readings by the high school and by some of the grades. Music will be supplied by the school orchestra and by the glee club. The program begins at 1:30 o'clock.

Through Mr. Peterson's inspiration a great deal of enthusiasm was work- ed up. The losers in the contest were to give a party for the winners. The 'latest date for the money or tickets to be turned in was Friday been. When all the money was turrmd in, the girls were found to be the win- this little scene of nature, triers" HIGH SCHOOL STRAW VOTE I PERSONALS On Tuesday morning at ten o clock I Mrs Fisher-spent'the week-,rid the students assembled for a straw with Rachel Morris vet. Mr. Peterson had a sample ballot, from which he read the names of the various candidates for office. As Mr. Peterson read the names of the candidates and the office for which they were running, the stu- dents wrote on a sheet of paper the name of the candidate for whom they wished to vote. Mary Smethurst, Margaret Whitley and Homer Perkins checked the votes and they were as follows: th'esident, Roosevelt; Governor, Gellatly; Lieut- Governor, Meyers; U. S. Senator, Jones, State Rep., Monroe and Be- linger, Sec. State, Hinkle. HIGH SCHOOL PLAY The play given last Friday night by members of the student body was a great success. Everyone that was present reported a very interesting evening. A little skit was put on Iy Don Sines and Doris Holland that was very comical. Doris was a crystal gazer and Don a great professor. Miss Humphrey directed the play and the cast knew their parts ex- ceptionally well. Before and during the intermissions the orchestra play- ed some delightful numbers. We appreciate the splendid sup- port of the community. , GIRLS CLUB Last Thursday all Girls Club par- odies were turned in to Miss Fear. These will be judged before our next meeting. Friday we will have a meet- ing to see who has the best song. The one chosen will be sung in Girls Club and in Physical education. It will also be pub;shed in the Crinison and White. GIRLS' P. E.

LITSCHERT i i Efforts are now finally being made in Europe for an international as- sault on the world-wide depression. A preliminary meeting of economic experts of the major nations of the globe was held at Geneva recently to blaze the trail for the international battle against the forces of depres- sion which were unleashed after the unnatural post-war boom had run its course. Possible movements to be tak- en on a world-wide scale have been discussed in this meeting, with a view, later in the winter of summoning a world-wide effort to stop the inroads of the depression. A great deal of ground remains to be covered before any definite plan can be adopted by all the nations for attempting to restore normal eco- nomic conditions. The reason is that the great nations do not agree ex- actly on what ought to be done, just as the so-called financial experts in our own country are not in agree- ment as to what ought to be done in America. As a general thing the experts in the United States believe that a con- certed effort should be made to re- store prices of raw materials, which l five hundred feet or .more. ing one of the tournaments of the On the right was another panora-year. The Red Hot Whiz Bangs took would in turn, it is claimed, increase and heartless one and will mean many the buying power of the world, re- sulting in the opening up of the fac- tories with resultant higher wages and more employment. It is this the- ory which was in mind when the Re- construction Finance Corporation and the Home Loan Bank "system were inaugurated. It was believed that these stabilizing influences would halt the course of deflation and lay the foundation for a rise in commod- ity prices. The French do not agree to this view. Perhaps it is because their problem is different and they have never enjoyed the high wage scales and the high standard of living which has been prevalent in the United States. The French government is said, by foreign financial writers, to believe that deflation should he per- mitted to un its course, reducing manufacturing costs and merchan- dising costs until' things are thor- oughly deflated. It is believed by those who back this plan that this and this only will lay a solid founda- [ion of recovery, although it is ad- mitted that the course is a ruthless automobilds by a single dial on the steering wheel.

German financiers are said to incline toward the American';dens of combatting the I depression, while the British, as is by no means usual, are for the a- doption of a middle course, or at i least have not yet made up their minds whether to back the French or American economic ideas. Uncle Sam will, ef course, be a party to this conference, and the av- erage American will be of the opin- ion that it will behoove Uncle Sam to Watch his step pretty carefully. For the conference will not be mere- ly one of adopting either the Ameri- can or the French theory of what ought to be done. Many other ques- tions are to come up, among them the questions of restoring the value of silver, of the war debts tad of tariffs. Doubtless there will be a pret- ty solid lineup against the United States on the question of war debts and of the tariff, although the debt l problem may be settled before the i conference is called. Uncle Sam will: be fortunate if he can steer clear of the question of tariffs. Doubtless the European nations, together with Ar- gentine and some of the others will be anxious for an agreement which will revise the American tariff down- ward. Thy will promise Uncle Sam all sorts of things, including greater markets abroad for a return chance to invade the rich American mar- ket.

PREVENTION Expressing his firm belief that the conquest of tubereulo.qis will be at- tained ultimately througgh research, Professor John Weinzirl Of Seattle, Director of the Alice McDermott foundation, recently reviewed the progress made in that field in recent years. "In the fifty years since Koch dis- covered the tubercle bacillus," said Professor Weiriirl, "we have discov- ered more about the cure and, what is more important; the ontol of tu- berculosis that the 5,000'years be- fore that time. Fifty years ago we thought that tubreculosis was always fatal. Then we did not knew how to prevent it. Now we knew and actual- ly succeed. Then the death rate was above 200 per 100,000 population. New it is approximately 70. "This has all been accomplished through investigation, or research. While the gain has been lmost un- believable, yet the sacrifice of 85,- 000 people per year, chiefly between the ages of 15 and 45 is still o great. Research must be ontine-ff.
