FROST .................................. PUBLISHER JACK PIERCE .................................... EDITOR A Silly Subject Sam Parks, .the young John Brcher, and an Eastern Washington State Colaege faculty member were .scheduled to debate a silly subject yesterday (Thursday) in Oheney. They were phnning to waste some time arguirtg on, "Earl Warren Should Be In- peached." Parks faces the monumental and imlxrob - able, if not impossible, task of wrestling the Republican Congressional seat away from the respected and capable Walt Horan. He wanes the Republican nomhmtion for representa- tive of the Fth U. S. Corgresslonal District. Debating on impeaching Earl Warren, ehief justice of the Supreme Court, is some- thing fike arguing the direction which the moon rises. Five thousand scholars may prove R's better for the moon to rise in one direc- tion irtstead of the other, but .that isn't going to change the moon from coming up the same wa? R always has. Neither will a silly debate such as the one planned yesterday change Mr. Warren's sta- tus. If Parks is serious about his Congres- sional ientlons he should choose some reas- onable, and constructive topic. He isn't going ) get anywhere foilmviag this tired, ivri- fixating old Birch phitosophy arid sin.gong. Parks professes he is "an avowed member of the John Birch Society." He ato made this statement, when he announced his candi- dacy: "'There has been a renewed awaken- ing o[ conservative thinking in this area. and we feel most voters are sick and tired o[ politicians who are a[raid to take a strong stand [or [ear it might cost them an o[[ice.'" If Parks is needling Rep. H0,ran, as this rather hasty remark indicates, we suggest .he take a look at the congressman's Wash- irgton report to members of the Fifth Dis- trict, which appears elsewhere on this page of the Free Press. Rep. Horan's remarks are clear and con- cise, as weU as having been written by a man of considerable experience, wisdom and stature. They are not written by a man racked with "fear." Parks should also keep in mind mt his "renewed ,awakening of conservatism in this area," has existed for sometime, and without the fan'tical raings of the John Birch So- ciety. Tg Republicar.,s everywhere are loathe to endorse a candidate whose organi- zation cMls Dwht Eisenhower a Commu- ,nist dupe Parks stmuld not make the mistake of equating Republicanism with Birchism.

To The Free Press: An article appearntg on the fro page of The Free Press on Friday, January 17, shld stimulate same thought by every citizen of Cheney. I refer to the resolution pre- pared and presented to the City Council by the ,Ministerial Associ.tion of Cheney. This distinguished group of citizens deserves the, high- :est commend, alien for recog- nizing and protesting against :a decision of the City Cuncil resulting in licensg of dane- iing in taverns. Undoubtedly, any church member, in lacular, and, in fact, m ot other citizens, who are honest with thenselves:, will admit that .this as a stared on the part of re'misters which would be expected of them if they met the st, and- ards we hold for men of he profession as well as all whe are seriously interested in the bet welfare of society. Some referen, ce was made tlat the Couvmil was within its legal righCs to issue these lcenses, which was, no doubt, co/'reet. May I suggest that our de- mocracy is built upon the premise of freedom, which we highly prize, but closely re- ated to the exercise of those freedoms are responsibilities to use them discretely.

Washington 8at Association STOCKS AND BONDS The phrase "stocks and bonds" is pretty familiar to most Americans, tree many peoole do not realize the dif- ference betwee 'stocks and bonds. When you .buy a slmre of stock in a corporation, yu be- come a pat am-her of it. You own a share of everyting the corporation 1. If there are 1,000 shares outstanding and you own one share, you have an "undivided" one thons- and:h sare in the corporation. This means ht yon .have an interest in every piece of the corporation's' property. When you buy a coep,ora- tin's bond, you ,are lending money to the corporation. You do not own any part of it.

WSU ,at Pul'lman, was in the office to lIp us develop grass and legumes seed recommen- dations for the "dis'ct. First the district was divid- ed into the three rainaU zones; 15 inches or less, 15 to 18 iehes and 18 to 21 inches of annual preeipition. After the rainfall zones were brok- en out, we listed the soi in- volved with each zone, which totaled about 70 different soiti types. The soils wi,t ,hin the rainfall zones were further divided into groups acording to their m0isture-holding eapaci. Ths put them into deeper, medium.textured cropand, droughthier type or coarse-rex- i Each of lese srnall, er groups were ussed and the grass- es and legumes t were bbest adapted for these different si.tes were listed. ,,Th, e grasses ,and/or legumes that e best adapted for ach of the sites can be tied down to soils. Mix- tures for hay, pasture, green- manure, eosion control, grass- ed waterways and grass seed production have been outlined for each site group. For the spring phnting, we will have recommendations for the best adapted plants for each softs in each rainfall one. List items in your account book to match your cheeks 'and deposit slips.

R was sttggested tlmt places having licenses to sell liquor were responsible for enforc- ing the limitations to minors. There are a}so restrictions on the sale of .tobacco to min- ors but how obvious i is th!at both liquor and tobacco re- strictions are being very oos- ely e rfforced. It :appears, since this has been a c,ontroversy of so long standing, that the Council cou,td have a,t east notified the public that requests ad been submitted ov such lic- enses and gven citizens an opportunity ,to express opin- ions. However, the Council ap- pears to .have chosen to exer- cise its legal rights and tale this responsibility upon tem- selves. Therefore, slould it not logically fo}low that  like por- tion of he,'l'ty to see that the licenses, are en- forced rests upon them rather than imply ,that he sale re- sportsibility of enforcemert rests with the license ho,der. In airness to the CiCy Coun- cil, those wlm have hem pub- hc office are we,tl aware that it is often a thankaess job and that no matter low sincere or how hard they .try to do her best it is impossible to please everybody. Also, we remember tha many ,of our councme.n, in spite of frequent criticism and probably less expressed praise and appreciaon, have served on our Council for several terms, and have promoted many valuable beefRs for our city. i plareciate such devotion to service as I am sure many citizens do. Persorally, I have had few occasions when I felt t neces- sary or expedient ,to approach the City C.ounci but on eve such occasion, I ,have always found them very co,urteous and cc.0pertive and ey iave always responded with saitable and prompt action. No doubt it is ,too late now to revoke the d.aneiig licen- ses already issued for this vear unless therer are viola- tion, but, since the licenses are ssued each year, R is not too late to give serious arian of R another Melvin S. 110 E. 6th St. Cheney, To EdRor Frost: Your editorials aren't in line with the of the m.ajoy of the in the Chene school Remember--we ll just the doctors SC.
