ANGLE Edi tor NEW NARROWS BRIDGE ASSURED i It will be good news to the Olympic peninsula‘ as well as the Navy Yard, Shelton and all points to thenorth that settlement has been reached without lawsuit between the insurance compan- ies and the state, to insure early action on the’ Narrows bridge. The companies will pay $4,000,000 as their’ part and turn over the piers and salvage to the state; leaving the way clear for the engineering department under Burwell antz to proceed with plans for rebuilding a no and better struc- ture. Because of the urgent need for the new bridge in use to meet the heavy public demand en— couraged by the brief life of the first bridge, and now for connection between Fort Lewis and other camps on the Eastside with the Navy Yard and the forts on this side, it is action that is needed. . Engineers are already working on plans for a four-lane bridge for which the existing piers seem safe, and for a wider and heavier suspension span, for which the government and state will cooperate to speed the project, with prospect of completion within two years, perhaps under forced action within a year. The fact that the first bridge proved a money-maker while in service gives encourage- ment for making available the necessary money‘ to carry on, and for the federal agencies to re— lease the necessary steel and other supplies to: speed work once the plans are completed and ap- proved; =all of which is welcome news to Mason County. Let us hope there will be nothing worse than the mimic warfare going on around us to disturb, the peace and quiet of the Northwest. ' POWER CENTRALIZATION COMING ' Now the cities which have struggled to build their own public power utilities, and the utility groups which have taken over the private power and sponsored Coulee and Bonneville in the ex- pectation of making a power empire of their own, are now finding out What was in the program from the beginning, namely, that the government intends to control all power out of Washington, centralization. “Honest Harold” Ickes, who is now out to view the parks and power empire in the making, in the Northwest, has a bill of his own in Con— gress giving all power unto himself, while Sena-, tor Bone, the father of public utility, seeks toi have a three-man commission, but also subject to Secretary Ickes, although he points out that Ickes may not live and rule forever. Whatever the: outcome it may be guessed that local control will] be short-lived and under the guise of “defense” every citizen, business and industry is due for regimentation; which might not be so bad if it were honestly and intelligently administered. Judging by the boom in marriages so far this year there is due a big crop of new babies around next spring, running strong to boys if this war hysteria continues. SHELTON FACES WAR PROBLEM Shelton faces a problem notmuch less serious than actual war in getting busy on service to the army boys who are here in maneuvers and likely to get a day off occasionally to rest up, with no place to go or anything for entertainment in sight. I At leisure and at times ahead of the chow wagons the boys on the streets are hungry for a change, and the few now here soon eat up all. the candy bars, fruit and extras to be had in locall stores, and the same is trueof country stores. . ‘ There is a job ahead for Shelton in providing places for rest, reading and recreation, and plans are making to open the Legion Hall, the old Post-1 office building and the Lincoln gym to provide some needed facilities and for clean-up and baths, and the public is asked to help out with reading, matter and old furniture. ' I .While we may not know how the war is go- ing 1t 18 said that the few troops moving around Shelton are but the vanguard and soon manyl l thousandsare likely to be here and they will take the town in earnest if something is not done to keep them in good humor. All small towns face‘ the problem of treating the boys wéll who comei that way. . .a. ..§..' IL. film's: _. If this country is to have its ceilings for pro-' duction and goods costs, it should be in order and possible to have a ceiling on debts, taxes and wasteful expenditures; all frozen at present lev- 015 with no excess profits to anyone.
