EBER ANGLE Editor Manager I DO AMERICANS DESERVE PUNISHMENT? While the public has not yet discovered whatl the many government agencies, under dlrect or-; ders of the President, are doing to the domestic economy of the nation under the guise of “dc—g fense” needs, business and manufacturers every- where are up against the real thing in the effort, to provide the raw materials and supplies to car- ry on business. What has happened is that every new board and commission alleged to be working out the new national economy, and every man With a. “screwy” idea called to Washington to direct; these groups, has issued new orders with every new day commandeering everything of citizeni need and piling up a great war supply for years‘ ahead, robbing the people of today. l Instances of enforced scarcity for public. needs are multiplying and becoming public every day of foolish quantity buying and repeating the huge wastes of the World War when surplus sup- plies were given away when the war ended or left 5 good oysters 0,, plaintiff's beds, been suspended at an. The two Schools have appealed lbeds and also where they have individually to ‘members of the They pro- too test suspension will be detriment- alto school programs, stifle plan- entertainment and disrupt to rot in France; and when the public feels thei inequity of much of this “priority” stuff they may begin to investigate. One of the great shortages just touching c1v-] ilian life is in paper, which the government 15 buying up by whole mills far beyond emergent needs and piling it away! for instance there is al-, ready a shortage of toilet paper yet there is no' question of capacity to take care of the needs of the army and navy boys as they did in civil life, and still have plenty left to keep the civilians clean. . If priorities are going to rob all domestic business of its needs in this rich country with its resources and production, boundless if not hampered, the result will be less business and employment reflected on all in the community, higher prices due to shortage, less money to spend and to give for public calls and less incomes to pay the government toward its huge orgy of spending. Punishing the people needlessly does not build morale. WHAT AUTOMOBILE RESTRICTION MEANS The arbitrary cutting of automobile produc-v tion in half or more means more to the life and morale of the American people than might appear at first glance, and has far reaching effects on their prosperity and well-being and the national; economy. ' To limit production of cars for private use means cutting of several million jobs, at least un- til the plants can be geared to war production of trucks and tanks which takes time, and makes for unemployment until full production can be reach-4 ed. Fewer automobiles means higher prices and less railroad cars, althOugh this is taken up by increased war shipment, but the real harm comes When the thousands of dealers have nothing to Sell, must cut down employment and disrupt their business, and add needless hardship. Now that workers in industry, whether war or private, have largely made homes outside the cities and towns they can no longer walk to Work as in earlier years they were forced to, and the automobile has become a necessity and car sales meana considerable community business. . Thus millions of workers as well as private citizens who need cars and are potential buyers of new cars, are going to suffer needless hardship in many ways, the resulting disturbance of hay tional economy will not only have, its immediate bad effects but its bad after effects. , It goes without saying that all people are Willing to make their sacrifices when these are universal and the government enforces its rules to increase production for the needs of war and defense, 'to check needless inflation of prices, and stop the strikes in war industries which offset the , urgent speeding of production. i l WHAT’S THE USE? A national campaign of vegetable growing" and vegetable eating is proposed to save meat. eptics. The home garden- year after year is going to ask, what’s the use? He nurses a row of radishes and gets a few spongy, cheese-holed midgets for his trouble. The turnips are bitter, and worms keep house in the cabbages. The carrots go to tops and the beets go to seed. Cutworms take the onions and the “telephone” peas worry themselves to k n e e height then call it off. The corn becomes nubbins and the lettuce won’t head. Weeds outpace the cucumbers. The squash vines have beautiful blos- soms. . By mid-July the high hopes of spring flag. and wane. The gardener either goes fishing or takes new interest in his golf game. The house- wife goes back to the can opener. If' anybody wants to campaign they ought to start in on the bugs firsl.—--l\bcrdeen World. ' l l Cl) eOysterI‘llenIiose Big Damage Suit Against Pulp Cal The Pioneer Oyster Company lost its $1,780,000 suit against thel in Mason County (outside of Shelton city mail carrier districts) i Puget Sound Pulp & Timber CO., I when Federal Judge John C. Bow- llanded down on September 29th a decision holding that im- : proper planting and not chem- ‘ ‘lcal waste is responsible for con- :ditions in the extensive oyster findings in the case are quoted ‘ below: 1. It must bc concluded from the testimony of the oystermen and others and from what the Itrial judge observed on the beds: that the plaintiff's oysters, usually planted 40 to 60 boxes of seed per acre (and more on some beds), were except some south end beds generally planted too thick, and that throughout the beds gener- ally are oysters in the original seed clusters not broken up as: they should have been, as well as other oysters drifted together on level surfaces and .collected in' pot holes by wind and wave ac- tion and not scattered in accord- ance with good cultivation, with the result that through crowding and consequent lack of food sup-1 ply the oysters have not been able to develop and fatten into mar- ketable condition. That conclus- ion is strongly indicated by tes- timony that in more recent years, in localities other than Padilla Bay, the growers have been re- ducing their seed plantings to ap- proximately 20 to 25 boxes per acre, with definitely better re- sults. There are, however, some notably on the periphery of the become scattered,.as well as on some south end beds not thickly planted. 2. It is preponderantly estab- lished by the greater weight of the evidence that the water from Bellingham Bay does not normally go into Padilla Bay, but that the water goes out of and into Bell- ingham Bay through the passages to and from Rosario Straits of Georgia without passmg through Padilla Bay. Likewise, it is es- tablished that the waters of Fidal- go Bay and Anacortes Harbor do not normally go into Padilla Bay, but that those waters go out of and into Fidalgo Bay and Ana.- cortes Harbor through Guemes Channel and the northward tidal currents around Guemes Island. with some water from the inward tidal passage through Guemes Channel going between Hat and Guemes islands into the north end of Padilla Bay: that the south end of Padilla Bay is filled prin— cipally through Swinomish Slough which flows northward more of the time than it does southward: and that it is only on exceptional occasions of severe wind that drift wood and logs are driven' acrossthe normal tidal currents into Padilla Bay from Bellingham Bay and Anacortes Harbor. From this situation and the testimony of absence of pulp liquor in Padil- la Bay, and in the absence more convincing proof to the contrary. it is concluded that the{ waste sulphite pulp liquor and fi— bcr from defendant‘s Bellingham and Anacortes mills don‘t reach the waters over plaintiff's oyster beds in adilla Bay in quantities sufficient to injure plaintiff’s oys- ters, although insignificant amounts of such liquor and fiber may conceivably on exceptional occasions of severe wind be driven across normal currents into Padil- la Bay, as drift wood and logs are on such exceptional occasions so driven. 3. After careful consideration of all the testimony and exhibits in the case, the credibility of i the many Witnesses and the weight of the testimony of each, all that the trial judge saw upon the view by him of the things and condi- tions connected with the trial. and the briefs and arguments of coun- sel. the court is of the opinion, and finds and decides, that plain- tiff has failed to sustain its bur- den of proof. and that there is a failure of necessary proof on plain- tiff's part in that plaintiff has not by a preponderance of the cvidcncc established either (1) that plaintiff’s oysters have been or will be injured by defendant’s pulp liquor or fiber, or (2) that there has been or will be preEEmt in the water over plaintiff’s oys- ter beds sufficient quantities of such liquor or fiber to injure plain- tiff's oysters. Plaintiff, therefore. is not entitled to recover any re- lief against defendant: The foregoing sufficiently dis- poses of the matter and renders unnecessary further rulings upon defendant’s separate affirmative defenses. Formal findings. conclusions and decree may be settled upon notice or stipulation. (Signed) JOHN C. BOWEN. Unitw States District Judge.
