President Richard Nixon's wage and price freeze was a step in the right direction, State Sen. Martin Durkan told the audience at a Democrat salmon barbecue Saturday evening in the Memorial Hall. Durkan was the speaker for the program which followed the salmon feed. He stated he did not fault the president for tax relief to business, which was long overdue. The president, he said, did not take into consideration that the individual taxpayer needs relief also. This should be done, Durkan said, to revitalize consumers. He stated he favors the institution of consumer tax credits to stimulate buying. He stated he also favored trying to do something to roll back taxes on the single family residence. The tax system of the state needs recons.titution, Durkan stated. State government, he said, can no longer respond to the needs of the people. There were so many bills introduced in the last session of the legislature that the legislative machinery failed. Durkan stated he believed the legislature should be able to redistrict the state, and, if they did not, the federal courts would do it for them. In other comments, Durkan: - S t a t e d that present unemployment in south King County was 26 per cent, and that the picture was not going to turn around over mght. - Said he was not opposed to increasing taxes when necessary, but, this was not the time. - Would rather pay public employees a better salary and get higher quality work rather than increase the number of public employees. - Said the last session of the legislature held the line on wage increases for public employees, and, then found that right after the session the private sector of the economy raised wages and prices. - Criticized the U. S. Department of Agriculture for not releasing surplus food stored at the Whidby Island Naval Base for hungry people in the state. Stated those on drugs need help and should have it. - Backed mandatory jail sentences for those who push drugs for profit. - Stated the creation of the Department of Social and Health Services was a big boondogle which had created many problems. Commented he believed there is room in the Democrat party for everyone. Durkan left right after finishing his remarks for Sanderson Field where he caught a plane to Bellingham where he was substituting for Sen. ttenry M. Jackson at an event there. State Sen. Gordon Sandison was mastor of ceremonies and introduced Durkan. County Approves Plan For Voter Listing MRS. K. N.

Spot Fires Are Put Out Department of Natural Resources fire crews put out three spot fires during the past week as the dry, east wind heightened the fire danger. The first fire was at the Dr. Douglas Larson farm in the Shelton Valley, which occured about 1 p.m. Thursday. The second was at the John MacRae residence at Turtle Lake, which occured about 3:45 p.m. Thursday. It burned over about one tenth of an acre. The third fire was in a swamp at the ttarry Kidd ranch on Panhandle Lake Road. It occured about 5:55 p.m. Friday All three fires jumped fire trails because of the high wind CORRECT FORMAL WEAR Complete Tuxedo Rental Service Men's Women's 409 Railroad |b. cap " Both have to 18-1b. capacity . yet together they're only 54" wide~.
