T. FROST .................................. PUBLISHER JACK PIERCE .................................... EDITOR The Rude Doctors A letter o' thi newsper ,last week de- scribed the "dtoPs at EWSC," as "the loud ,ad same"tixnes rude minority." The letter, of oourse, was in reference ,to Cheney's see.th- ing School Board meetings and remarks made by parents who happen to be college faculty members. In all faess to the "rude doctors," we feel this criticism is a bit unjust Without attemling to choose sides on gloat appar- erly .is a long-smoldering grudge, we'll have to concede even a college professor the right to be a parent. The letter probably reveals more in its implicati than wht actually was written. This is the apparent sohism existing between the collvge personnel ,and those who make their livirg by farming or <ther means This seems unorttmae from th view- point. Most comraunities wuld welcome with open arms a growing institution such a,s East- ern Whirgtor State College. Ws econo,mic impact on Cheney is envrmous. One need n stTetah his imagination too far to vis- ualize wlmt C, heney would be lke if th colIege weren't here. Ask any busi.ne, man what his volume drop would be ff the col- lege suddenly disalped and you'll get an idea what the college does mean to Cheey's present and future. StiU there seems to be a tendency, even if it is a relatively minor one, to resent "the rude doctors," aud :their contribution to oJr communi:ty. It seems logical from h.er t,h"t rather than resent these learned gentlemen we should leap at the opportunity to so,licit their help, particularly members o the School Board. Several of them have tim ,'.' again offered their professional help, o,n their free time, to work with the school beard if asked. As far as we know, these of- fers have been largely and pot:rely siT:- stepped. It also seems incredulous that the opin- ion exists t hee men have some perSr02-i axe to grind when they attend the Scho,01 Eart meetings. We don't con,sider them to  a "minority," any more th, an the farm group is a "minority," .or the businessmen, or the 40 Years Ago 1924 Mrs. Amanda Buchanan, one of Chen, ey's oldest pioneers, ,passed away Saturday at the age of 73. She came .here with her husband, Levi BuChanan, from Iowa 38 years ago. Mr." Buchanan died seven years ago. Survivors are hree sons, Isaac and Ira of Spokane and Lloyd of Cheney.

No Longer Shameful Founder Frank C. Hanighen of Human Events who, in 20 yeas of defeated unre- mitting labor brought the rea,dcvshp c,f this voice of conservatism from its 127 charter subscribers to a circulation of 100,000, is being missed n, owadays -- not only <a his Caoitol Hil beat, but in the 50 tates. The announcement of the 64-year-old edi tor's dea of a heart a,ttack, which occurred just as the Ja,n. 18 issue o,f his weekly was going te press said: "He had finished his week's work. He had el, so completed s life work  to bu.qd a s,trong foundation for conservatism." How well :he had done his wok is indicated by the comment of Barry Goldwater who Void Mr. Hanighen not s,o long ago: "I't is no Clen Wte t0,nger a shameful thing to be called a con- servative and you must take much of the credit for that." It is also important that, in doing his work, Editor Hanighen inspired hundreds of other editors of publications both grvt ar.d s,mal with what he called `the "b.!,s '' of Huma- Events in favor of "limited Cn:-tit'tinal government, local self-gavernmcnt, private enterprise and individual freedom." Thus, the work of many others will con- stftute a livirg memorial to that of "Mr. Human Events." Washington-Exclusive Is State's Ch/ef Asset By Gov. Albert D.

Since Hotrod's ear was going quite slmvly, Jrons decded to p ,ass. Mr. Jones sounded his 'horn ,and pulled out to pass. How- ever, as he did so, Hotrod 'in- creased his speed, preventing Jones from passing. At the next break i.n traffic Jones tried to pass again, with the same result. This time Hotrod looked back to laugh and ges- ture to Jons. The third time Jones tried to pass, Htrod again increased his. speed. his car to the left, forcing J, ones off the rad. In the resulting crash Mr. Jones was badly injured Hotrod Sued Jones sued Hotrod, claim- ing that he in,creased his speed when bei, n passed, thereby causing the cmh. "R wasn't my fait," said Hotrod. "If somebody wan, is to l)as me bey can try, butt it isn*t my fault ff they use poor judgment- and ca, n,t make it. So lon,,g as I'm within the speed limit I can chive as fast as I wat when I want." Can Hotrod be hem iabi.e in this case? Yes, sai,d te court. The driver of an overtaking ve- h4cle is prohibited by s,taeute from icreasin, g .his speed un- til completely passed. State taw requires the driver of an overtaken veMele n,t to in- crease hhe speed of ,his ve- Mele until completely passed by the ovevtak!ng vehicle.

This  due in part to the efforts of he Pollution Control Commission, but credit muSt also go to the co- operative spirit f many hund- reds of existing industries in Washington Ste. Oorlution Evident The economy and rowh of a .state is reflected taa great etent in its indus,trial activi- ty. It is inherent tha`t many t industries tha,t use in water their manufacturing processes will also discharge wastes t'hat often find their way into a state watercourse. This can and often does render that . watercourse unfit for any fur- ther use, at .least while the polluted conditions exist. As recently as: seven years ago ordy 66 per cert of the industries of Washinbon Sta`te were treading eir wastes or taking care of the water pol- lution problems that they could cause. Today that 66 per cent figure ,has cimbed o a record 91 per cent! This is striking evidence Vhat Wasah- ington is doing a great job in cleaning up its waters to" make them su, ible for ll uses an,d .thereby making the sate more attractive ,and desire, hie for both people and irtdustry. As me,tinned before, how- ever, ,the credit for Shis pro- gress must go m>t only to ste government but also to the people who supprd it and the industries th*at coperated in he program. Goal Is Higher Yet, 91 per cen clean water is less ,tha the gal we are striving for. The score can go even higer .... and it will.

Jan. 27, 1964 Editor, Cheney Fee Press Cheey, Washington Dear Sir. I wih .to eomp/hnet Mrs. $ohnson fo ,havirg the cur- ag.e to speak her mind and am ,adiig my "amen" to her comments. I, for one, do not bbetieve our SchoOl Board members can make a wise decision toward providing additional class room space when they are be- ing continually harangued by l some ,of the "highly educ!ated" people of Cheney. Maybe if the time spent by these people go- ing over the same thing every meeting was used by the Board for real study they woId be able to reach a decision that woud be acceptable to the majoxity of the people. It seems to me that with all the book "larnen" these gen- tlemen have had they have nfissed the two en'U:fled "How to Win Friends and Influence People" and "Common Sense". However, I believe that until the Board does s omethin about ,the lack of faith the people have in our two admin- istrators, they will not be able to get the majority .to vote for anythirg they might place on the balot.
