BETTER LET WELL ENOUGH ALONE Now that the tempest in a teapot over the cross- voting and election of Governor Langlie has peteredg, out the complaining element of the democrats is talking about revising the ballot form to eliminate the circle of party choice and require direct mark- ing for each candidate. Although the present ballot has been used with- out any complaint for forty, really fifty years, and; there has never been any trouble in finding out the' intention of the voters who choose to stop and mark candidates on the ticket opposed to their circle choice, the circle is superfluous, since “straight” vot- ing is no longer the rule. However, in view of the fact that the democrats have always and until this last election profited most by cross-voting in the past evidenced by the elec-. tion of Governor Lister and Martin and of Dill twice for senator; republicans will be the gainers from ab— sence of the 'circle and should offer no complaint at complainbat the change. TO BOOST LEGISLATIVE STIPEND The lawmakers are scheming to “put one over on the people of Washington by the subterfuge of fattening their $5 daily stipend for service by pass- ing a measure appropriating $35,000 or so for ex- penses of the legislators at Olympia. Perhaps there is some merit in the claim that a legislator cannot live on his salary, but he overlooks the “honor” of serving the people; also the fact that in the last election they killed the referendum to boost the salaries with a bang. . PEOPLE FAVOR FORTY MILL LIMIT One of the first measures in the legislative hop.- per is intended for a vote to raise the forty-mill tax limitation on real property to 45 mills, and to devote the extra five mills to paying the old age pensions as called for by N o. 141. Viewing the rapidly lowering state assessed property valuations due to several fixed as well as new conditions, the law of diminishing returns is moving faster than can possibly be relieved by any boost of the legal millage for tax collections. The tax axempt property which is fast growing and taking taxable property from the rolls, such as public utilities and operation, taking of private lands for parks and other non-producing purposes, and other exemptions, is making tax-raising a real problem. Rather than load private property more the leg- islature should seek for more economy in state oper- ations, cutting of funds granted for relief and other purposes which should be federally cared for, and to require the utilities as well as the government to make good the tax losses which the local government must make support. ‘FREE ENTERPRISE MEDICINE; Here in the United States we live under what is graphically described as a free enterprise system. It permits any man to go as far as his abilities Wlll take him. It places no barriers in the way of progress I and achievement. It believes in the dignity of the individual-as opposed to sy individual the slave of the state. what this free enterprise system has All of us know produced. It has given us the highest standard of living in the world. It has given the typical worker a higher paid job and a shorter work week than is known any- where else. It has given the average man and wo-! man more of the luxuries and necessities than their counterparts enjoy in any “other nation. It has giv- en them more security, in the form of homes, insur~, ance, b k deposits and other forms of saving. All f this has been done under that free en prise system the individualistic system, so to ven us more than, For example, in the field of private enterprise achieves. In 1936 there were 11.5 deaths per each , population from diptheria in Germany. There were 8.6 in England. There were but 1.5 in the United States. There is one qualified physician people herei—as against one for each (1, one for each 1,307 in Germany and In the totalitarian- dominates medicine, and the bureaucrats 'ick the doctors, almost all diseases speak.

Well, we’ve “fudged” another week of fine weather on .Ole Man Winter, so-far as Puget Sound is concerned. Well into January the mild weather has con tinued and so far the climate has been better than in sunny California; some rain, a little frost andan snow nearer than the distant crest of the Olympics. But the Winter is. still early. I l l TICKLED PINK BY ( est Crowd in Many Years Jams Gym; Pirates Win In Preliminary I Larg l ‘They hung out the standing Iroom only sign (and there wasn’t ,much of that left, either) when Ithc Harlem Globe Trotters came Ito town Sunday to draw the big— gest crowd into Lincoln gym in many years. The laughs startedthe moment the dusky comics of the court (came onto the floor and didn‘t subside until the exhibition was completed. The huge crowd, which filled every seat and stood ar- ound the edges of the playing floor at the entrance end of the gym, as well as on the balconies, applauded roundly at frequent in- tervals and at the end of the ex— hibition gave a final burst in ap- preciation of the show the Globe Trotters had staged. They’re Good, All Right ' The amazing passing ability of |the Negro basketeers drew oohs and aaahs from the multitude and their ball-handling dexterity was uncanny, making an all-around ability on the court both from the “business” and comical sides that l l ! probably isn’t matched anywhere in the country. . The score, as if it means any- (thing, was 52 to 36, including two i or three baskets the Trotters made (for their opponents, who included [both the Pantorium Cleaners'of ‘Shelton and the R.R.R.‘s of Seat- tle. 1 Those two clubs played the pre- I liminary game and quite a struggle lit turned out to be, too. The Pir- ates rallied from behind to snatch a 28 to 25 decision after trailing at all three rest periods, 5 to 2, 12 to 9, and 19 to 18. Lanky Pat Smith produced ten points in the second half which had an import- ant bearing on the outcome. Howitzers Tell Story It was the Pirates ability at long range which won them the verdict for they were badly off {form in most other phases of their lplay, missing a half dozen cripple lshots and generally appearing to be a little stale. Lewie Burnett, the I“local boy makes good" character, (was the R.R.R.’s standout, along I ( CAPACITY CROWD (Shir Smith TROTTER ANTICS» Sl {ELTONMASON COUNTY s also 0151s , lNTElthlTY PIN MEET OPENS? w \.

Grapeview Likes Pinchle Party Grapeview, Jan. 20. -— A pino- ch1e_party was given at the school house by the Grapeview club last Saturday evening, January 20th. A very delightful feature was a floating prize which went to the holder of double pinochle. When stems which make the someone else got double pinochle' he got possession of this fleat- ing prize and so on until the end of the evening, when the one who had it last could keep it. An un- usual feature was that Mr. and E, R. Parks'won men's first prize, women‘s'lfirot prize and door prize. Mr. Joe Tsaida won I l popular’request these parties are to be held every two weeks in- stead of monthly, the next one to be held, February lst. Refresh- ments are served after each‘par- very unusual event Was Were held during. the evening. Mr, E. R. Parks held the 1500 trump and Mr. I. Palms the 1000 aces. Proceeds of these parties she used to pay for auditorium chairs for the school.

Some Klickitat coun-ll ty sheepmen favor even a $10, bounty on coyotes. They point: out that with the incentive, for: capture of coyotes doubled thel predators could be virtually clim- i inated and the actual expense to, the state would in the long run: be less than it is under the pres-'i ent bounty system.
