An office in Olympia has been recently opened for Mr. Miller.

In addi- of feed I l stock.” To speed up action on applica-l tions, Mr. Miller requests that applicants come to the County Agent’s office prepared to giVe. Wheat allotment, if any; allotment on other crops, such as potatoes, and: total soil depleting acres; 19411 planting program; and the proper description of their farm. “The maximum loan to any inv dividual,” Mr. Miller explained, “is $400.00. The rate of interest is 4 percent per year.” Since this type of loan was authorized by Congress many years ago more than 140,000 crop and feed loans have been granted in the four northwestern states (Idaho, Oregon, Washington, and Montana supervised by the Spo- kane regional office) with the av- erage ill recent years running from five to nine thousand loans each year. Last year in the na- tion there were about 150,000 emergency crop and feed loans _for approximately $20,000,000.00. Although these loans are made only to farmers who cannot ob- tain adequate short-term financ- ing from regular credit sources, a high percentage of them are being repaid, Mr. .Miller pointed out. Throughout the nation 89 percent of the amount loaned in 1939 has been repaid, and over the entire period during which these loans have been made, 1918- 1940, approximately 70 percent of the amount loaned has been col- lected. l l l 's'l's' l, ‘ “immoral i retail business in It’s 6971 you in ste n and let us outfit you f 07” “‘ It gives me great pleasure to enter able to serve in this way all my friends and acquaintances in this locality. hope to conduct by business dealings . with you in such a manner as to main- tain the high reputation built up by 1 Mr. Diehl in his 30 years here.

TACOMA REACHING FOR MORE POWER Tacoma and Seattle are getting badly scared over the prospect of a dry summer ahead and shortage of electricity to meet their domesticI needs for the year, to say nothing of the new in-. dustries each hopes to gain in the expansion of Tacoma already has a tie-up with Bonneville power but cannot expect much if any help from‘ that source, and is completing plans for another- nydro plant on the Nisqually river above its present plant at LaGrand, the j original power; For some years past Tacoma has been plan-l hing to supplement its two power dams on the North Fork of the S'kokomish River, including i ii'ork and adding its flow to Cushman. Appar- ently this idea is shelved for some reason and for ' the time being in the stampede for more power. It is interesting to note that Tacoma’lc'laims it l v can finance and build a new dam and prOduCe its. needed power increase at much less cost than itl can buy Bonneville and Coulee federally produced power; also interesting that Shelton is not inter- ested, being able to produce steam power for. all its needs as cheap as the government plants. AUTOMOBILES AND WAR DEATHS Now that another generation of boys is in the military, naval‘or air services of their country we may recall the! fear and trepidation with which the draftees andl their families of another day viewed. their depar-i ture from home and scattering over the world. There is now no way of-“forete‘lling what is ahead for this country as a whole, or any of *its component parts, or for any of those young men volunteer or draft who are now being sent to concentration camps all over the country; but it is recalled that only a small percentage of the older boys failed to return. , But we fail to seriously'vobserve the heavy. death toll due to automobiles, much of it from the combination of g‘as‘and‘ drink, and to realize that right at home in almost every community the: casualty list is heavier than it was in the last war, ‘ or likely to be ahead; and that this death toll is more or less preventable. GIVING UNTILJT HURTS- It is now apparent to everybody that all must contribute in their various ways to the cause of national defense and war “until it hurts,” and in the end there will be few exceptions to the rule that no abnormal profits be made by anyone, in- dividual or corporation; in war preparation or in ordinary trade. The serious problem which so far has not been earnestly tackledby the administration, but which must in time be dispoSed of fairly to those concerned as well as government, is the loss of valuable time in war industries through needless strikes over minor issues, of which the most, an- noying are those between organized groups. Chairman Vinson of the House Naval Com- mitttee recently said that during 1940 and to mid- February 3,781 days, or 101/; years, or 7,817,360 man-hours had been lost through stoppage of in- dustries which the government is urging speed-up and he added that at 24,000 man-hours required to build a bomber, the lost time in aircraft alone would have built 325 bOmbers. ' While delays in lines Which serve theypubli‘c' and munitions, are something that may be- en- dured with more or less impatience by those who may suffer delays; there should be ample power in government to arbitrate most complaints with- out permitting any power to that which drafts young men to serve' their country without question or choice. LEGISLATURE DIES WITHOUT REGRETS Washington’s most expensive legislature ad- Journed Saturday noon after two days overtime, managed to double their pay by subterfuge and fudge another $5 per diem per each. Perhaps the voters might well have approved the pay increase at last election, but that it would improve the quality of membership as a whole is unlikely; The appropriations total $256,000,000 or sixty millions more than. for" the previous bie‘n- nium, including around forty millions for pen- sions, and nearly every function of state was allowed more money to carry on; on the revenue side the added cent for sales tax is expected to ‘keep the deficit down tot-five millions or so, but the legislators were not concerned about either. -a ‘Alice Wren and Mr. Dan Drake; ,the consolation prizes to Mr. Nes- and do not concern the needs to build planes, ships stoppage in industry; equal" fortunately without pay, although the members’ success. There was a good crowd 'tOday' ' and all enjoyed the evening. After the dinner pinochle was played. The two first prizes went to Mrs. 1 tor Syrjela and Mrs. Sophus Han- sen. Mr. H. E. Peterson drew the door prize. Another party is. planned for March 29th. There will be the usual admission charge to this and the money used, as usual, for needed things at the! school. Mr. and Mrs. Orin Buckingham, Mrs.- Sarah Hansen and Mrs. Cliff 1 3 Barrett had an interesting exper-l iencc in Bremcrton the other evening. As they were driving along the street Mrs. Buckingham saw a woman whose face looked , familiar but she hadn't seen her: ‘ for many years and could not rc-1 member her name. A little later. , as they drove by a bus stop, Mrs. Henson noticed a lady’s purse on l the bench. They rescued it hop- , g ing there was identification in it. Hardy Plants There was—a letter addressed: to the friend whom Mrs. Bucking-l ham had noticed a few moments {2 before! So they were able to} return the purse, the owner was l; delighted to see it and her former; friend. That is the sort of cdin-' cidencc you wouldn't believe ifi you saw it in a story.
