WHY NOT SHIP BUILDING? out of the huge. spending program for national: defense which is being scattered broadcast over! only present prospect is for the improvement of' its airport along with numerous other such ports over the state. Grays Harbor which is in much the same lack of federal interest is working out a plan for build— ing some of the hundreds of ships, large and small! for which the government is advancing funds and‘ giving out contracts; recalling the era of wooden ships of which the Harbor built several in the last war. Shelton is an ideal location for the building of small vessels, tugs, trawlers and mine-sweep- ers, with its several acres of filled grounds and near sawmills which could turn out all the fin— ished materials required on short notice; away! from the congestion of the cities for labor andi for living quarters. i It may be agreed that conditions are notl altogether pleasing for the investment of capital in new industries, likely to be followed with new labor problems, and more or less uncertainty of profit after the government taxing is cared for; yet there will be several years ahead of heavy shipbuilding to supply present urgent needs not to speak of the demand to rebuild the lost mer- chant marine which has been sunk. This looks like now being urged, and it is worthy of consideration. HOUSING PROJECT FOR SHELTON better housing and will be even more needful be fore the season is far advanced it is doubtful if the situation in this community would justify seeking a Federal Housing Project as is being done in some places and has been suggested here. Shelton is not suffering so badly as yet to call in federal aid when plenty of local funds should be available for new homes here, and thus keep the normally expected business in the hands of local finance and material dealers, contractors, ,real estate and workmen. Building a flock of stock houses too far in advance of the needs and thus discouraging pri» vate investment, with perhaps a sad aftermath, Mrs. August Carlson, Mr. and Mrs. F‘red S. Wright and Mr. and Mrs. Reinhart Goetsch called at Ithe Pickering home of the George 40 y . . . Tune to KGY for Special Features Saturday and M onday [Carlsons on Friday.

Individual home building and interest is the solution for current needs and would be encour- aged by easier money available to those who [would build homes for, themselves, if within ireach; but mass building which would increase Icosts of finished homes, even if financed with ifederal aid, would discourage private investment Iand do more harm than good. DESTIN ED FOR THE PARK The testimony park superintendent, that the government does lnot intend to add the Queets corridor and the beach strip, which are being acquired by Score ., tary lakes of the interior department in the guise of a public works recreational project, to the park lrepresents, without doubt, Mr. Macy’s conviction, lbut unless they are to beadded to the park, there iis no point in acquiring them. Whether they ladded to the park or not, the lands and their re~ isourcesare to be withdrawn from use, and in that ‘sense, they might as well be in the park as out of The Queets corridOr cuts Off the Olympic {peninsula from Grays Harbor —— it bars access Ifrom the south, except such access as Mr. Ickes is pleased to grant. If the corridor is not to be added to the park, the Harbor has a right to as— sume... that its acquisition well may have been de- signed as a punishment to the Harbor for its oppo- sition to the creation of the unwarrantedly large national park. If that is not the reason and if there is no intention to add the corridor and the beach strip to the park, then what can have been the purpose in the government’s acquiring the lands? And how are the corridor and the beach strip to-be administered? Why, by the parks bu- reau, so far as the available information goes, of the interior department. They may not be added formally to the park, but to all intents and pur— poses, they are part of the park. As for a recrea-' tional area, the government has in the park more than 800,000 acres of recreational area; it doesl not need the 50,000 acres of the Queets corridor and the beach strip. We do not question Mr. Macy’s words or good faith, but we have no doubt that the corridor and the beach strip Will be added to the park in due! season. We belieVe that is the intent of Mr. Ickes, lwhatever he has told Mr. Macy. —- Aberdeen lWorld.
