MASON COUNTY SHORT OF MILK It is rather unfortunate that Mason County' had not been paying much attention to the ex- pansion of its agriculture and dairy of late years,‘ and that it is not now in position to “cash in” on the huge government spending for subsistence for the thousands of men now being called in and trained at Fert Lewis and who will likely be there for several years to come. Mason County has no surplus of milk and butter, and its dairymen can not supply more of these farm products than. to feed its own people, and in the case of butter its creamery drawing on the county farms falls far short of this home de- mand; to meet any increased call there must be more cleared land and crop production, and at least double the number of cows could be handled with profit. Fort Lewis is now using more than 5,000 gal- lons of milk daily, and will need more as the year advances, and is demanding milk with high but- terfat content for its men, paying around 8 cents morethan market. Grays Harbor dairymen have pooled all they can, promising 150 cans or 1,500 gallons of milk, or 600 pounds of butterfat daily. This is a fine piece of business for farmers, who are requiredto follow certain standards to insure the health of the army men; and it maybe Mason County can share some of this cream while it lasts. Of course, it requires several years to get in-' to dairy farming as a business, unless a gomg farm and cows are bought outright,‘but even now it is not too late to get into poultry with young chicks already on the market; and Fort LerS {alone will call for an egg a day for every man, 'Qwhich means that here is a line in which Mason County can soon get into production and share in a fine market right at hand. l SHELTON LAGGIN G IN PARADE Many truckloads of lumber are daily passing through Shelton bound for Bremerton in the main, to meet the great housing boom which is going around the Navy :Yard city based on the government works which are due to continue for years with large and liberal payrolls. Most of the building of homes is being car— ried on on a large scale and financed either through FHA loans, or by federal subsidy, and this is also true of Seattle and other places where money for building is plentiful and easy to obtain and home-owning is encouraged. .. Both because this passing lumber comes from Olympia or the Harbor way and furnishes work in manufacture as well as in building for men which. would be helpful if carried on in Shelton; it might be well to take inventory to find out why Shelton is lagging both in home building and getting its share of the manufactured lumber which is pass- ing through. SEATTLE “BLACK OUT” Seattle had a “blackout” Friday night in which the great city was blotted out for a quarter- hour; the first attempt of any city in the _United ‘ States to practice meeting air raid conditions as now prevail in. England. The air patrol reported only a half dozen lights showmg during the out . period. showing how completely the city was or- ganized for the trial, which was costly but fortu- nately without accident. , Prehaps‘it was well to make the trial but it is doubtful that any city can be hidden from sight from the air because enemy fliers from home or abroad know as much about the landscape of Pu- get Sound or all America as do our peace-loving people. Now that the war program of the admin- istration is about completexit is hard to determine how much of what is goingoon is war. hysteria to boost spending and how much}er real‘defense. WE ARE A GULLIBLE PEOPLE This is a great era of propaganda. in this coun- try in which our own government has been the leader in putting over on the pepople the various ideas and scheme to extract more money from tax- payers and making them like it. But what we are now most concerned about is the foreign stuff that is being quietly spread among the people, much of it from subversive sour- ces and intend to lull them into a false security against the elements biding their time to make trouble. 5 The mails are full of such stuff of Communist, . Nazi or Japanese origin and nothing is done about 'it, much of it coming from consulates and organ— ized groups stuffed with aliens flocking here on “Visas” and having no trouble getting in. 7 Every newspaper office is loaded with such propaganda telling of the beauties of life in the countries now under the heel of the dictators, in- tended to put our people to sleep, to hinder war preparation and make trouble in industry. Need- less to add that newspapers are wise to the stuff and none ever appears in print. r m-A 1 L.
