Page 6 LEAVE TRADING STAMPS • OUT I dislike disagreeing with people who write letters to the editor but I feel impelled to do so in the case of our friend Jack Smith of Arcadia Road. Jack likes trading stamps. I can&apos;t see any sense to them whatever. Jack takes issue with Representative Charlie Sa- vage. I'm glad Charlie is opposed to trading stamps. Trading stamps don't come for free. Those who issue them with purchases from their business establishments may allow that impression to go along with the stamps, but the hard facts are that the customer is paying for them whefher he realizes it or not. The handling of trading stamps is something the merchant has to pay for, is an item in his cost of doing business. He passes that cost along to his customers in order to obtain and maintain a margin of profit suffic- ient to keep his business operating. So the customer doesn't get those trading stamps free. They're like a tax, a hidden tax, and they add to the price of whatever they are given for. So I'm thankful Washington State has a law that for :all'practical purposes outlaws the use of trading stamps in this state. And I'm further thankful that Charlie Savage feels the same way and is in a position as a legislator to protect that law  from the tampering which the only ones who figure to profit from trading stamps--the trading stamp people them- selves--have tried before to accomplish, and undoubtedly will again. GIVE ME MORE LIKE THESE If 180 million other Americans only felt the same as quite a few Shelton-Mason County Chamber of Commerce - members do about federal hand-outs our income taxes would ....... tke d welcome dive. It kind of lifted the spirit recently when several Cham- ber members rose to their feet and berated the "distressed area" label tagged on our community. If thi is what they call a "distressed area" then things caWt be very bad economically. Not that we're basking in prosperity by any means but to paint us as "distressed" is a long way from the actual ]act. This isn't to say there is no place for federal aid to com- munities genuinely in distress. A source of emergency mo- ney is highly desireable many times, can be a life-saver, but it seems out-of-tune with the American spirit of resource- fulness and self.reliance to go running to Uncle Sam at the drop of the hat when money could be used for something-or- other. So, hats off to some men with pride. If we had a few million more like them Uncle Sam wouldn't be taking so ? many dollars out of ou r pockets in income tax.
