FROST .................................. PUBLISHER JACK PIERCE .................................... EDITOR Here Comes Nixon Dou't look too far behind the other Repub- l'ican pcesidenti,al cadi.dates for Richard Nixon, beea.use he's just about pulled ahead of the pack. In fact, a good guess a this point wuld make the former vice president and Pemasyl- vania's Wam Scranton the likely choices ,at the GOP canve:rion this summer. Nixen is a step behind Henry Cabot Lodge in the latest pollls and has pulled far a,head of Barry Goldwter and the fadfng Nelson Rockefeller. Lodge, of course, is riding the boom of that sweeping New England pri- mary electh)n in New I-mpshire. This has made him the frontrunner for the week. How things charge on the Republican presiden- tial scene! Not long ago Nelson Rockefeller apparently bad the nomination in the bag. Then he married a yourtg divorcee with four young children and his star began to fall. An emotional clamor far Barry Goldwer then set into action, only to be sta .led by the mur- der in Dallas. No lortger faced wi the "rig" versus "left" issue, the Republicans began lookirg 'at George Romney, Michigan's businessman-govern'or. Romney declared himself unavailabie--sayiatg he had a pledge to keep in Michigan. Then came the belated enthusiasm for William Scranton, which isn't dead yet, by any means. Ltrking in the back- ground, like an old pro baseball player wac'h- ing the rookies fight t out for his job, was Ricbard Nixon. The Lodge boom is expected to coal f considerably when the de.legates start lining tp in areas other tha, n New England. What wifl this Ieave, then? It will leave the party with the opportunity of once more nominaing the man who made the vice pes- idency mean something. It will leave them with the opportun*ity of nominating a man who received 34 mi}lion votes in 1960. It will leave them with the chance 'to rominate a man of unqtmstioned international stature. It wil] leave them with the chance of nominat- ing a self-made man of humble' origin who espouses nei*hr the far left or the fanatical right. It will also leave them wth the chance to use ,the services and abilities of a fine man and .a good American. It will leave them Rich- ard Nixon. The True Frontier Latest figures compiled by Tax Fotmdation, Inc., reveal total government spending--fed- eral, ste arid local--will break all fiscal year records in 1964. Spendirg by the three is expected to reach $197 billion, an increase of $12 bitlion .over the last fiscal year. If these authoritative estirngtes are borne out the report states, taxes will reaCh a new high I cost of ,abottt $1,044 per man, woman and child in the United States. That will be $6]. [ above the 1963 figure. [ Additional figures reveal that sirce the[ New Frohtier took over ,in 1961, federal spend- [ ing has increased by $16 'on a year; the n'atioaM debt has increased $19.1 billion; tmempoyment has risen from 3.9 iIl'lion to 4.5 miIRon; bankrtt.ptces ad mortgage fore- closures "have greatly Tisen; and the cost of living has reached an all4ime hiffh. Americans who ,take the trouble ,to voile will have an opportuaty next October to endorse these programs again for foo_r more years, at lease. Our Ignorant Educated April 15, that ominous day when Uncle breathes down our necks the h.ardest of all, brings to mind the story abou,t Albert Ein- stein. Ein,stein admitted it was beyond h ability to empute his own federal income tax. He had to take his figures to a tax ac- countant. "You don't need to be a mathema- ticla o figure your own x," Ein'stein said, "you need to be a phi}osopher." Which reminds us of armthcr quip along the same lines: "Educating .the ignorart isn't the trouble with this country," ,the man said. "It's the ignorant among the educated." 40 Years Ago 1924 The Masonic lodge ,has pur- chased a 25-foot lot adjoin'rag its property on First street from A. T. Lindquist.

Kelley Soil Conservation Service "Speaking of eroded hill- tops--w'hat kind of fertilizer should I pLtt ,on this year, and how much?" This i,s a question which we face nearly every day. The answer is simple---H, ave you taken, a soil test? A soil test doesn't really give al:l the ,answer, but it's a mighty handy guide. For the sml sum of $2.50 Washing- l ton State University can de- termine phosphorous, potas- sium and calcium levels in e soil, plus organic rnateter learels and Soil :acidity or allmlhty: This is a pretty small invest- meat compared to possibly hurdreds of dollars inveted in the fertilizer applica'mn it- self. Phosphorous and potassimn are fertzers which do not move readily in the soil. Therefore, a test for them, as well as oraanic matter, s:h,otd be taken from only the first foot of soil. A test of this nla- ture does n, ot require a soil auger or other special equip- ment, only a bucket and shovel is needed. If there is a Reed the most soluble forms of phos- phorous arid potassium will to build a service st,arian and garage on west First street was approved by the city coun- cil.

Will Determine Need The soil .acidity tet will de- termine the need for neu- tralizing mat, erals such as lime stone, hydrated lime bruned lime or dolomite. As a gen, eral rule, most of t'he hill - tops in the Palouse re not highly ,acid arid have high ex- changeabl'e qttartRies o,f cal- cium, therefore these rm'ua- lizing materials are very rarely needed. However, a soft test will determine the acttmi need, if any. Sulfur has also given re- sponse on some ea, eded soil sites. As yet, a test 'has not been devised wbich will corre- late the .deficiency with the amount available to pants. Some tests may in,eate aa abundance ,of sulfur and yt an additional pplieation will give icreased yields. Oher tests may be just the o,ppo- site. Properly taken, and pro?zr- !lv analyzed, a soil test is a use- fl tol for th, e l,=,mznts i known to have field trial c:>r-  relations.

The neighbors, being con- cerned about the stua'tion, told Joe of Mike's t_reas. They also told him that Mike was dangerous, and carrying a gun. Shortly after being wrned, Joe met Mike walking down the street. As he two men ap- woached each other Mike sud- dealy tlrust his hand into his pock. Joe, believing ike was reaching for a gun, struck him on the head zith ,his cane. Mike was injared by this blow on the head, and he sued Joe for damages. "Mike had been threatening me," said Joe. "When he put his band in  pocket, I thouglt ,he was reaching for a gun. I hit him, but it was pre- ly .an act o,f sef-defense." "I dida,'t kave a gun in my pocket," said Mike. "Joe just walked up arrtd hit me over the head. I didn't do anying to him." Can Joe el,aim self-defense in this case? Yes, said the court. Mike, by his former threacs, and by sud- denly putting his hand in his pocket, gave Joe reason to be- lieve that he was abou,t to draw a gun. Joe had the right to act upon appearances and prevent the supposed attack. The privilege of self-defense extends to the use of force which ra, so.-.ably appears to be necessary f o v prot.eetion against a threatened attack. If you a,e aa.cked, or reason- ably believe that you ae about to be attacked, you can sta'nd your ground arid fj,ght. But you cannot use more force than necessary to pro,tect your- sell You can be held lab.le if, after p,reventing the attack, you go ahead and beat up your attacker. In this case Joe's belief that Mike wa. about to draw a gun v,,as rc:at::qb]e und=r 13 c'r cumstances. The re.ore his actions we,re justified as s=.If defense. Mike last the case.
