Does anyorm around Cheny remember such names as Irv Lefer, George Gble- ,house, Rabbit Raffler, Bill Id_lett, Dick Luft, Dick Eicher, Pat Whitehil,l, Jotm Lothspeich and others of a decade or so ago? If your memory stretches back that far you can recall the days hen Eastern Wash- igton State College used to wi basketball games. They used to .beat Washir, gton State University regurly. Corffererme games were almost a breeze. The vaters at the EWSC .gymnasium used to ring with the sounds of overflw crowds in those days. Cheney residents never, but never, missed a home game. Those boys were the pride nd joy of the community. They were real athletes. Let&apos;s see, now . . . hat was back in the early 1950's, wasn't it? This is 1964 . . . a ,tong ",time removed. A story came into ,this n.r this week from the news deparanent at EWSC. It contained the following words . . . "the UPS ,game was a rotor against the Savages, who lost 80-56 . . . Eastern, in (me of its worst seasons, finished 1-9." Oh, well. We can stl remember back 10 or 15 years ago and recatl when it used to be ftm to watch the Savages play. But may- be, just maybe, those days could return, if... But then, as any doctor can tell you, to cure an ill, there must be  remedy. Maybe there will be one at ,that Who knows? But don't hold your breath. 40 Years Ago 1924 Mrs: J. E. Buchanan recounts strenuous efforts of Ti,licum club members ,to secure City park. A long time ago, in 1906 when some of us were push- ing lmby ca.rts over raVtling board skiewalks, ad wher we drove to Sgokane in buggies, a member of Tilicum club got the irffurma,tion that ,,the block of land beyond the junior high! school yeas owned by *he coun- ty and eeutd be used far a city park. Three very timid club women .appeared before the mayor and city council with the humbl petition  the Tilicum club might be respon-! sible in ieresting he coop- eration of the community for a city park. Although given little encouragement, they were allowed to go rhead. The task looked hopeless. The bock of land had a number of ative pine tree,s, but it was most ursightly with boulders broken tree branches, rubbish ,and poor soft. Public interest was aroused. Dinners were held to raise money for labor, lawn seed and to have good soil ,hauled in. Generaus citizeus donated money and labor. The park dream as finally a frailty. The city council then adopted it ad has paid for its upkeep and plan'ting of trees around the bluek. Tw es .have been phnted  e ch,b, one a ub ,tree, and one in mem- ory of a loved member, Mrs. W. J. Sutton. 30 Years Ago 1934 Ohoney reheat prices on Wednesday were 57 cents for baart and 54 eert for export. Gheney Bakery has added a new bread slicing and sealing machine and is now offering regular or sliced bread at the, same price. Peter Carl Erlandsen, a res- ident of .the community for 55 year, died Saturday in a Spokane hospital. Born i,n Denmark in 1851, he came to the United States wit a broth- er, Ross Elandsen, who died 15 years ago, ,and .homesteaded in the Amber vicinity. Sur- vivors include a brother, two sisters and several nephews and nieces in CornJa and three nieces, Mrs. Olga Morri- son, Mrs, Forest Morrisan ad Mrs. Ivan Calvert, of Amber. Fifty-five students are to be given part4"Lme employment on projects at Cheney Normal school, enabling them to earn $15 a month to help pay their expenses. To Cure Poverty The aIleva'tion of purely ,has been a major objective ,since civilization began. But a strategic goal must be accomplished 'by a tactical plml  that is, a method of achiev- ing the wmated ead. President Johnson's idea is to do it by heavily4ncreased federal spend- ing for a multitude of projects. Henry Hazlitt, one of 'hte clearest writers on economic matters, in a Newsweek article ,says: "The way to cure poverty is mot through inflation, 'share.the-weMth' schemes, and socialism, but by precisely the opposite pol- icies -- by the adoption of a system of pri- vate property, freer trade, free markets, and free erterprise. It was largely becanse we adopted this system more fully .titan auy other country ,that we became the most pro- ducive.... "The way to combat the remaimng pock- ets of poverty is to keep this system; to re- cuce government intervention instead of in- creasing it; to reduce government spending and punitive taxation -- in brief, to increase the incentives to the initiative, effort, risk- aking, saving, and invesment that increase employment, productity, and real wges." It may be that direct government tax spemiing is needed in a few distressed areas. But, overall, the weapons Mr. Haitt advo- cates are precisely the ones we must depend upon.

Figures Tell Tale According to recent state- ties released by the United States Deayartment of Agricul- ure, there are 2,942 Sail Con- SelTaion Districts in the Unit- ed States. These districts have nearly two million Sand owners and operators as direct coop- erators, of which over one mil- lion have developed complete soil and water comervaion farm plans. [ During 1963 these dis,tric .lped nearly 700,000 land owners and operaors apply one or more soil and water conservation practices. Through these districts there .are now completed  sur- veys on approximately 800 mih lion acres of land. These soil surveys are in sufficient de- tail for use in conservatio planning of farms arid ranch- es, watersheds and other uses.

This ,threat to run Mr. Wag- oner, or ary other lawabiding i ci'tizen out of business, is cer- tainyh a degrading firing to have kappen in a community such as ours. We people, who believe in our school board drectors, axe ,nat wkfi,g o run Dr. Langton" .and Mr. Poore ott of business. We are ,merely wishia them God- speed in finding a higher (or ,forcer a the case may be) posi- tion in ,a more deserving com- mmty. These people from he col- lege have every rg the school board meei,ngs r, as anyone in he dist,'let, and to speak their minds. However they certainly .do not .have the right to threaten the board .members mply ,because they have the initiative and hones- ty o stand on their own feet and do their utmos to repre- sen the majority of the people in their respective districts. I n 100 per cen in favor of Mr. Wagoner's resolution and any other actions deemed suitable by the majlori:ty of the bold. After MI, we vofed these people in to represent us, and I feel we hould make every effort ,to support them.
