Arthur Rhodes, secretary-treasur- er, announced here today. • Details will be announced fol- lowing the association's sixth an nual stokhcdder' meeting here January 9, Rhodes said, adding that the financing of orchardists, with a sound basis for credit, is already an established part of the organization's short-term credit program. "The North Washington Pro- duction Credit association has op- erated conservatively and success- fuJy for over six :years," said the secretary.

Our total sales for the driv stand at approximately two million dollars, or nearly twice our quota. . The people of this county are to be sincerely congratulated on this performance, especially in  view of the fact that in many of the drives Okanogan County had a higher per capita quota than other counties of the state. We wish to thank the many people who have given so instint- ingly of their time and talent in the sale of these bonds. This has been the greatest unified effort ever put forth by the people of this, or any other county. Every segment of the peele of this coun- ty hs been represented in this effort. To the schools of the county, under the able chairman- ship of Albert Ayars, must go the major portion if the credit for the success of the Victory Loan Drive.

Washington . y G y LaFollette 1945 A Momentous Year For Washington Citizens Olympia, December 26 - Look- ing back at the year just ending', Washington citizens should be conscious of the important a- chitvements which have been real- ized within our state during the past twelve months. It has Ionff been the custom to evaluate pro- gess and development at this sea- son of the year. We should be conscious of the fact that it was in this stat'e'that the terrifying atomic bomb was constructed. It was at Hanford that-the work was done which opeaed a new era in man's history which will no doubt be. as impor- tant as the discovery of the wheel or the beginning of the iron age. Authorities hav judged the story of the atomic bomb to be the greatest news story of the year just closing. The fact that the de- vice was spawned in this state, be it for better or for worse, is a genuint significance to all people everywhere. Mammoth Irrigation. Project Second In Importance Orders for installation of the machinery hich will lift the wa- ter for the first units of the mil- lion are irrigation project in cen- tral Washington, details of which we numerated in this column last week, is perhaps the second great- est event for Washington during' the .past year. We have become so accustomed to the mighty Colum- bia; Coulee and Bonneville dams and all of the things connected therewith that the true impor- tance of the development of this great river is some___,. .... until we visit oth natio00 and are -- our natural resou situated: elsewhere- " the dry beds of the Rio Grande at 1 Paso and the Los Angeles Ri- ver ii southern California. The tremendous asset that our state has in the electrical energy being generated by the waters of the Columbia will bcome more apparent in the years ahead. Advantages Of ashigton's Position On The Globe Becoming More Evident Daily We who have lived in the north- west for many years know the tre- mendous advantages afforded by the fact tllat Washington is miles, days, or hours nearer that great mass of poaulation in .Asia. Ship- ping by water as an example from Washiagton points to Shanghai has anost nine hundred miles less distance to travel than from Los Angeles and more than four hun- dred miles shorter route than from San Francisco. Comparable advantages are had when steam- ships go to Singapore, Vladivos- tok, and Manila. One of the truly - big stories of the year and the war can now be told. It concerns th shipments of billions of dol- cars worth of goods to Russia. Most of these shipments, hundreds of ship loads, went out of Wash- ington ports including the Colum- bia River, making this port next to New York harbor as the imoor- tant shipping point of the nation. Same ships went by the Bering Strait in summer, "over the top," to Russia. Washington Leads In lansport Too Air transportation which dur- ing the year just closing has again made trnemiaus advances, finds its advantage in hours of flying time when Washington air fields are used as compared to those of any other lmrl; of the nation. Air travel to Alaska which from a cx- vilian's standpoint has made tre- mendous stridiss during 1945 us- ing Wasn as a terminal as (Cont/mued On Page 8) FINDS BOOTS IN ATTIC As you probably noticed, E. J. Hallenbek advertised last week for the return of his hip boots, which he was convinced somebody had borrowed, but he_ didn't re- member who. Monday he came in the paper )ffice looking mighty sheepish. He said that just about the time he received last week's paper his grandson came down from the attic with his hip boots, where they had been securely put away.
