COMMENT (Continued From l'age 1) You know that one of timse $18.75 Victory Bonds is a ten year Christmas gift which im- proves with each year of a decade. Ten years of remembrance in one gift. Can you think of a better one ? .0. For the joke of the week we offer this one: After giving an explanation of the proper mthod of taking a pulse the instructor called for a volunteer equipped with a timepiece to demonstrate. "I have a watch," shouted one en- thusiastic student, and with a flourish of wrist he continued, "You can start breathing now!" -0 So long, folks, and the Tuber- culosis Christmas Seals are the handiest gift wrapping aids ever!

CARD OF THANKS We wish to thank all for their kind and beautiful expressions of sympathy extended us during the illness and at the death of our Mother, Mrs. Nancy Lawless. George Lawless John Lawless Wm. Lawless Ralph Lawless Dick Lawlss Mabel MeCrea Christmas Season Will Show World Record In Use Of Liquor .... Presen dispatches tell us that the 1945 Christmas season brings plans in our National Capitol for the greatest number of cocktail parties, dinner and other affairs in which liquor plays a leading part, than has ever occurred in bur history This is particularly true of emlassies of foreign gov- ernments, those vho are getting our wealth and goods and other concessions under, various devices. This is surely a sorry situation or the consideration of the people of bis, the greatest nation in the world, the leading Christian na- tion. America is y'et a democracy. Its official family 0retty much re- fleets the spiritual attitude of the people. Again what a?e your plans for Christmas? Washington Again Leads The Nation Bids are being caled for purps for the Grand Coule Irrigation project each of which will be more than eight times larger than the world's present largest pumps, those now in use in the Colorado River and supplying water to the Los An'eles area. Each of these mammoth pumps will lift water through pipes twelve feet in di- ameter, lifting water a height of two hundred seventy feet from I the lake b.ehind th dam and will discharge this stream into Grand Coul.ee, which was one time ages ago the bed of the Columbia Ri- ver, and where a lake twenty-sev- en miles long will be created for irrigation purposes. When conpleted the plant will have twelve of these mammoth pumps. It is planned that ten of the primps will be operated a one time and that two will be hld in reserve for emergency. When in operation these ten pumps oper- ating together will lift water the two hundred seventy feet to pro- vide every living person in the nation with one gallon. In one single second water discharged from these ,pumps will weigh one million pounds Installation of the first pump is set to start in Novemb'er 1948 and will require more than six months as of course tide pumps must be manu[actured and tested, the others will follow in intervals of about six months. They will cost approximately thirty-one mil- lion dollars when installed and will provide waver for more than one-half million ares of land in central Washington. Every week our dealer service men send us reports and they're of great help in kepirLg abreast of what consumers and all distri- butive factors think of us and our product. They report their extra activities of promotion, publicity and good-will building- their woPk on problems such as packag- ing and condition. HERE'S A TYPICAL REPORT So that you can get an idea of what a field report reads like,, let us quote parts of a recent one from New York: "Part of my time this week was devoted to securing publicity from radio and newspapers and also from educational groups. Some .time was also devoted to the stu- dy of prepackaging. Retail dealers located in small outlying owns and cities were called on and their opinions regarding consumer packaging were solicited "The opinions of these small- town dealers are practically the same as those in larger citi'es. They feel that if the trend swings to prepackaging, they will have to follow, even if it means spending a ,couple of thousand dollars for refrigerated cases. Most small re- tailers are now starting to realize that in order for them to keep in step with their chain competitors, they_ must follow the chain system of merchandising. WHAT'ABOUT PREPACKAGING? "There is still a differenceof opinion as to what commodities should be prepacked. At present, most dealers feel that here would be no advantage in prepackaging apples and citrus fruits. Some leaders of food trad organiza- tions, however, feel that if it be- comes necessary to prepack apples unit ,packs should be no larger than 3 tbs. Some also feel that the size of units should be goerne by the size of the crop and mar- ket conditions. "A question, to which it is very difficult to get an answer, s where the packaging should be done. Trade factors that I have discussed this question with agree that it would be difficult to pack on the shipping end. On the other hand, if-packed on the distribut- ing end, the cost would probably Mrs. Kathryn Knoviton. accom- panied her. Mrs. Mary Jane Rehn has re- ,ceived word that her husband, Pfc. Ronald Rehn, left Shanghai, China December 5th and they are expecting him home by the first of January. W. G. Morris was in Wenatchee on business several days last week Mrs. Morris and granddaughter joined him Saturday for the day.

Wilson @ OK/INOGAN CREAMERY COMP/00NY JOB "Considerable time was devoted to merchandising of alples. ,An outstanding apple-u demonstra- tibn was arranged and held this week With Miss Johnson, Passaic County Home Agent. Miss John- son prepared various apple dishes, using our recipes. Our booklets were distributed to all present. Excell'ent cooperation was also re- ceived from several radio statioP.s as well as newspapers and food trade papers. In ed] of the ads and publicity received we were care- ful not to do a selling job, bu rather an clucationed job. "The apple shortage and com- petition to secure apples is becom- ing more acute every week. De- mand continues unabated for ap- ples that are not avafiabl'e. Ap- ples are about the highest priced fruit on the retail stands: Wash- ington Delicious, eastern McIn- tosh and Delicious selling at top ,price Reports from retailers in- dicate that consumers are willing to ray top prices for apples if qua.1ty and condition are gocd, but they complain of paying ceil- ing prices for poor fruit." Washington tate Apple Commission be too'high. Leaders of the food ,  trade feel that much research will have to be done in order to deter- mine what is' practical. Many also feel that it is not enough that the industry Carry on research but .... "  that retail groups will also hve to do some research.
