T. FROST .................................. PUBLISHER JACK PIERCE .................................... EDITOR Ring Around The Rosie, It Doesn&apos;t Look So Cozy Governzr Albert D. Rosellini stressed the devetopme of industry in Washkngt dur- ing his address 'here last Friday at Eastern Wa,shingto State College graduation ceremon- ies. The governer told the graduates that "the productivity and ingenuity of people are the prime attractors of business arm industry. Ec- onomics ,and social commenta,tors are repeat- edly pointing to the way the new industrial complexes have clustered around the coun- try's great unversities and research centers." "This ",m happening in our state," the goverrmr added. Roseni then cited several examples of businesses nw operating in t.hs state and boasted that "the individu,al and his ideas are wltat reaUy count." "We will continue to attract new indus- try and provide new job opportunities as long as we have the kind of citizens we do have in this state," Rosel4iM bragged. Let's take a look at what Joe C-ready, a RepubIcan guhernatoral rcan'ddate, has to say about this rosey picture painted by the goverrmr. We .have nearly 80,000 persons unemploy- ed ,in Washington State. We .have 20 per cent fewer manufactur- ing jobs than we had in the state 10 years ,ago. This 20 per cent reduction in jobs does not iaclude jobs lost in the araft indus- try. Our bonded indebtednes is roughly $400 mil'lions. This means that we pay about $100,- 000 every day just to service that debt. We have a tax structure which is 1tot at- tractive to business grvth witlgn the state or to potential new industry from outside the state. Our tax structure is the product of crisis after crisis with n'o long range lhn. ning involved. There has beer, ittte if any effort to correct this situation. We have an administration which appears to be motivated, not by concern for what is best fr the people, but by what is best for the political future of Crovernor Rosel- lint arm his politmal cr<mies. Ros ,ellini's boasts echo vacantly down a lortg line of unemployed, who siouM :be con- vinced by raw that 8 years of expanded gov- ernment isn't the answer to their problems. Jobs can be created ff government will leave businesses :aone long enough to earn, needed profit which can be used for expa, nsion. No amoun.t of dictation from professional poli- ticians who ack practical experience will complish tl. Gandy is a man wi 35 years as a suc- cessful lawyer, businessmm and civic lead- er. Dan Evans, another ca4ate an the Re- publican ticket, so is a quMified man. Eith- er or both will work to the advantage of Washington ff deCted, rather than far per- sorm'l gain. Governor Roseltlini's expressed interest and con-t for the 2)uisinessman doesn't ring with much validity in the light of more ac- curate figures .such as those SUpled by Candy. 40 Years Ago 1924 A ma), drawn by C.

Hv- ever, the Attorney General of the State of Wshigton has appealed the cae to the Was:h- in,gton Supreme Court. Pending determination o,f the appeal, t is st'ill necessary to register as a contractor, but no bnd or insurance is re- quired. This summer it will be ltecessazT far a contractor to renem his registration. How- ever, it will not be necessary to pa a registration or a re- newal fee. This mears an im- mediate savings of $20 or $3.5 fr contractors, in addition to sums saed on bond premiums. lalure to register as a con- tractor, pursuant to the terms of the law as it has been mod- ified by our injunctions, will prevent ,a contractor from en- forcing his contracts in court. A number of situatin ,have el'ready arisen in the state w, here people have refused to pay contractors for work be- cause the contractor failed to register. The reason the boding re- quirements are somewhat pro- hibitive is that the bonding companies are liable r the bond for six years from the time .a person goes out of busi- ness. Should he elect to deposit to. h state the required amount of the bead, the same limitations apply. The phintiffs to "defeat" the 1963 Contractors Registra- tion Law are optimistic about Cheer, chances far success, both in the Supreme Curt and in the next session of the Legis- ,ature.

Immediately the Federal Trade Commission, which would much rather fool around with any chore to avoid doing its principal job of enforcing the anti trust laws jumped into the act to consider a ban on advertising of cigarettes. In addition, the Federal Office of Education considers a cam- paign to discourage cigarette smoking, while U.S. Dept. of Agriculture is spending coun- terpart funds equalling $417 million, Rep. Clarence Brown, Ohio, reports to encourage for- eigners to smoke cigarettes. And now Senator Gaylord Nelson of Wisconsin has called for a "war on poverty" calling for federal expenditures of $10 billion over the next 10 years. Where's the money to come tram? Through a five cent per pack increase in cigarettes. It is aiso poin'ed out that cig- arette taxes in this nation are low compared to Europe, only 12.9c in U.S. as compared to a 43.5c tax per pack in England, 36.5c tax in Ireland, 41.Sc in Sweden, and so on. Largely overlooked is the fact that the per capita consumption of cig- arettes in America is much higher than in these nations. *** So for the nonce it is perhaps well to overlook the economic considerations which would in- dicate that the higher the cig- arette tax, the lower the con- sumption. And of course, reduc- tion in consumption in this na- tion would also reduce the mount that would be derived to war on poverty. But this viewpoint is perhaps too practi- cal, and thus immateriM. So instead, it is well to imag- ine the most deIightful set of paradoxes that will result if the Surgeon General continues his warning, the FTC muzzles cig- arette advertising, and the of- rice of Education decides to campaign against cigarettes while at the same time Cong- ress passes a high cigarette tax to war on poverty. Official Public Health and Education bureau releases will issue warnings against smok- ing, the FTC will require each package to carry a warning that the product is dangerous. On the other hand, whatever bureaus wars on poverty will be urging people to smoke more to bring in the taxes. This bureau, in order to keep from offending the other bu- l reaus will undoubtedly adopt a slogan such as the following "Contract Cancer to Cure Pov- erty-Smoke an Extra Pack Today." And some agnostics believe that the story of Babel is merely a folklore myth. I'aUosal Federation of Independent BuMnes$ Horan Flays Continuing Farm Bureau Expansion, IWheat Deal With Russians By Walt Horan Congressman, 5th District In fiscM year 1954, under Secretary of Agriculture Ben- son, the expenditures of the Dcpatmen of Agriculture to- taled $2.9 billion. Tern years later the fLscal 1964 appropria- tion for the Department of Ag- riculture totaled $6.2 billion, and President Johnson, re- i quested n additional $6.6 mil- livn as a suptmental appvopri- aan to finish out the year. In adopting the ficM year 1965 Detpartment of Agri,eul- ttre approwiation bill recent- b, the House of Representa- tives turned dovn the entire supplemental request and cut the 1965 request by $406 mil- lion, leaving a total of $5.1 billion to be spent The Ad- mi ,nsratiin's 1965 request as submitted was already $653 mil- lion Mss than the 1964 appro- prittion. Thus the 1965 total is labout $1 billion less than the I funds for 1964. Closer Look Needed However, I think we should take h closer ook at t:s for thre :real story. There is no such true economyin the President's program. The $otms0 budget proposed reductions in popu- lar and waluable programs which he knew would be re- stored by the committee. For example, Preskieat Johnson proposed reductions in such activities as the Agriculture Con, servation program, the Ex- tension Service, watershed protection, flood preve,nti,o, ,&istance to districts ,by the :Sail Conservation Service, Ag- riculture Research Stations, 1Wakt News Service. The subcommittee on agriculture apPli, ations of which I am a member, added to the pix priation bill $8.8 mi.Pton far the continued opera, ions of these program,s, stating in our committee report, "The com- mittee is convinced tlat these activities are extremely vaiu- able, varculriy to the con- sumers of the country, and should be connued." President Jalmson has made muCh of iaunding a war on poverty, and 'hs visi-l de- pressed agricu'turail areas sev- eral times since ,assuming of- fice. I persormlly feel it is dif- ficult to understand the Pree ident's actions hen on the one hand ,he speaks out so strongly in the need to alleviate pov- erty in rural are, and on the other hand recommends to the Con:gross drastic reductions in the agriculturM yrgrams best designed to check rural pover- ty. I am proud to say at all of the members of our po- pvidons subcommittee,,r Re- publican's and Democrats alike, i weve not taken in by the Presi- dents political activities in th regard, and were nnani- mous r restoring these funds to the bill. Motion Offered Before the bill was finally Imssed by the House of Repre- sentatives, a motion to recom- mit the bill with instructions to the committee was offered. The recommittal motion sogh to insert ianguage in the agri- culture appo?riation bill to prevent use of any funds for payment of export subsidies on any surplus agriculture com- modities soid to Oormnunst countries, nnaess approved by tim President and reported to the Congress. In effect, this Wopoml would have strOpped the peyment of export .. mbsi- dies on farm products we sell to Communist eountries. This potx)sal ws rejected by a vote of 187 to 186. I staortgly regret that this Wopos was rejected because I can see no justification or sad 'dling the American taxpayer with sub- sidy pa'ymen on wlmat or other commodities our coun- try ships to Russia. Aeording to statements of tim Department of Agriculture during the hearings of our snb- committee, 63 miflon bushels of wheat have been registered for export to Rttsia so far this year. The export subsidhr, rang- hrg from 51 cents to 84 cents per bushel, would mount to $42.9 mffiion. Agricul'tue of- ficials stated that "The export subsidy is in the form of pay- ment-in-kind co,if testes wMch must be t ptr- chase U. S. wheat from the Commodity Credit Corporaioa which must then he expand." Furthermore, the deptmet states Shot during 1964,salesof U. S. wheat to the Soviet Un- ion amounted to $15.7 milliou. Had this same mount of grain been .said dmly, the U. S. purchaser wald .have Imid $152.2 million for it. This means that the Cknnmuists re- ceved the wheat for $18.5 mil- lion less ,than 2mericans wuld have been charged. I believe it is high time to stop this sort of thing. Had the proposal be- come iav, the Communist rm- tions would lave been re- qu&l to pay the same price for U. S. wheat as that carged to American consumers.
