Mgr. \VE ARE LOOKING TO WASHINGTON It is too late to cry over spilled milk or wasted ; time, and time to pay more attention to the spies, l saboteurs and alien nationals within our borders; and take note of their past activities and associa-- tions as a line on their real threat against our na- 1 tional safety. ' i It is recalled that Congressman Dies fought; against the odds of Congress and the administra-i tion to carry on his investigations and bring out‘; what the enemies entrenched in danger spots 1 were doing to weaken our national preparatio‘n' and defense; which proves our high powers werei asleep. i These dangers were not alone from Nazis, Facists and Communist spies but more importantE on the Pacific Coast from the Japanese, who may not have been in our war industries, but had close ‘ places among high naval officers and on ships as simple-minded scullions who lacked much of be-; ing simple. f Now, no doubt, the long list of persons and‘ places, the maps, pictures and other data taken; from the few who have been captured, will be: carefully studied for seeking out the organization; and the centers; for the spy system has already; done great damage to this country and there i should be no further loss of time in running them; into the ground. f It is also high time to put a stop to much ofé the foolishness in high places, the playing with} socialistic ideas and with arbitrary labor, and the squandering of vast sums of the people’s hard-5 earned money on all sorts of gifts and non-de-i fense schemes on top of continued appeals for more and more; time to stop all fooling and de-: vote all thought and effort to building up a real; war machine to save the nation’s life and our own way of living. PAPER USED IN DEFENSE A growing shortage of pulp, paper and pa- per board, coupled with the industry’s increasing importance to defense, should almost guarantee a continued capacity operation here. The only' danger is in the matter of priorities for maintey nance of existing equipment, but the industry is! due for an improved priority rating. 1 The government is now taking 20 per cent, of the 1941 pulp and paper capacity. Next yearl 35 per cent or more will be used for government and defense. In 1943 the estimate is 50 per cent of the output. . To give you an idea of just a few of paper’s uses in defense: ' The expansion of the steel industry ralone has absorbed 45,000 tons of kraft paper.l It is used between sheets of stainless steel and. tin plate, and as the demand increases for these, defense materials, the use of kraft paper in- creases. The army will require 1,500 tons of paper- board shirt boxes next year. Another 1,000 tons.will be needed to make} paperboard cartons to hold the canned tomatoes] the army will use in the coming year. For ammunition boxes 360,000 tons will bei needed in 1942. Countless thousands of cases of toilet tissue and towels are being used' by the armed forces— much more, in fact, than the same men required} in civilian life. i Increased usage of paper bags and wrap-,i ping paper comes with the continued expansion of the army and navy. It takes 15 tons of blueprint paper for every’ destroyer Uncle Sam’s draftsmen turn out, many more tons for larger vessels. ‘ The information division of OPM consumes; 44,000,000 sheets of paper a month, but expects} to cut its usage 50 per cent by mimeographing on} both sides of the sheet. I Since the pulp and paper industry cannot expand sufficiently to meet the demand, because of the machinery situation, it looks like the na- tlon will soon be asked to conserve paper. House-i wives will be asked to save waste paper to be pro- l cessed into paper cartons, and cartons will be u..- ed over. Paper drives similar to the recent alum-l mum campaign are also in the picture of things; to come. Paper must and will do its part to win thel war. —— from The Post at Camas, a paper milli town. , ' i Washington state stands high in the list of those states best prepared to weather the stress} of war and support the national government in; this emergency. Washington state finances arel sound. Washington local government is in the bestl condition in the history of the state. Washingtonl counties are solvent and efficient. Washington; cities and town and lesser taxing districts are? carrying on effectively and economically. Wash-i ington state stands ready to do its part.———Thei Monroe lVlonilDI‘.

N1! ol’ the 'great paradoxes of it; , American business is that the more a business advertises a product the [en the cost of the product to you the consumer. l For instance —take disposable tissues. When first introduced in 1925 a 200 sheet carton cost you 65¢. Today it costs 13¢, or 2 for 25¢. How did this happen? From the advertising you saw the advantages of disposable tis- sues and bought. Thousands of V others did likewise. This increased sales—made the economic: of 7224:: production and may: a’zkm'éutz'on pom'ole. lowered the cost of disposable tis- sues to you so you could get them for 1/5 the former cost. The same principle operates continually with most products. Remember what radios, elec- ‘ ' In this manner advertiu'ng l I l trical refrigerators, automobiles, l o H, reduced. And quality has been improved. The system of free competitive private enterprise takes care of that. Businesses vie to give you letter quality at lower prices and through advertising they tell you bow their products are better. If a business man gets his prices too high a competitor comes in with a lower price. You are the gainer every time. That’s how advertising brings’ you more joy in living. WHAT 19 no i Make advertising your ouyz'ng guide. It’s a guarantee of finest qualit at the right price. ~ And don’t let anybody tell you that“ advertising increases the cost of goods.When you run in to that one, tell them how advertising lowers costs through mass produc— tion and raises quality through competitive enterprise :3 the vacuum Cleaners, silverwarp, ,9, American system. china, pottc cameras, etc., cost 15 years ago and what they cost you today.
