FROST .................................. PUBLISHER JACK PIERCE .................................... EDITOR Selection Of Miller Is Commendable Step The Cheney School Board deserves a pat on the back fl)r the pragmatic way it wertt about choosing Roy Milter as a new &apos;reetor last week. The choice of Miller, too, is a good one arid should be f value to the district as a whole. First of all, hocever, the directors are to be complimented for rmt yielding to un,nec- essary petitions and pressure from support- ors of two other candidates. The candidates themselves, Garnelt Boots and Dr. Wilfred A. Gamon, to be sure, wonld have been good and fair men. But petitions and pressure are the wrong way to go about things. The School Board was elected to perform a function, and it seems about time tha it should be allocved to attempt that function without constant pressure and poltics coming to fron. MiLer himse,tf has remained aloof from the school hassle which :has consumed most of the meeting time during the past year. While remaining personally detached, how- ever, he has kept himself irfformed and should now be able to act "m a dispassionate and inl'ligent manner, representing neither one faction or another, but the district as a col/ective body. This is the way it stmuki be, arid we suspect th may have motivated the other directors when they made their decision. It's been a long year, fraught with dis- harmony, hearings, accusations and agu- ments. Perhaps, just perhaps, this is begin- ning to come to an end. A little more matur- ity on all sides wontd be a welcome develop- mont. Let's hope the new School Board and its patrons can buckle down to work during the summer and the coming school year atd conduct itself in a constructive and adult manner. A little help from the patrons would help this goal immensely. 00amt 40 Years Ago 1924 Announcement was made this week of the forthcoming marriage Tuesday of Harold C.

Washington Bar Association Both drivm's nd walkers have a tegal duty to be care- ful, but since drivers do the greater harm, they 'have the greater duty. Pedestrians have ,a legal right to expect drivers o obey traffic rules. In passirg cars, drivers must watch out for pedestrians who may not see them, especiatly on crosswalks where walkers ihare the right of way, as well  on sidewalks and highway shoulders. A walker's bad judgmen or mistake may not excuse a mo- torist in an accidenL The driver should allow a wide margin fo such errors: As a walker, t,lmugh, you too have a legal duty to be careful, to consider how dark the street is, the color of yur clothes, your ego, the speed and closeness o ormoming cars, and the ike. Still a ped- estrian's lack of loper cae does not give a driver a right to hit him. He still should try to avoid a mishap, no ntter who is to bhme. When a w`aer disobeys traffic hws himse, his folly may help bring on his injuries and tlms lose him his right to recover damages. Most o ag, the hw holds that a driver should give spe- cial oare to smart clildven. They do lh armmd dive- ways and axe intflsi+ve. So warn bhem before you back into the street and make sure they are safe. You have a legal duty to: look for workers protected by signs, /Mrts, or red fgs on the highway. The I/aw expects  such varkmen to spend their time at work and not in dodg- ing cars. (This clumn is written to inom, not to ,advise. Facts may change the application of the law.) Conservation News By Richard H. Jessen Soil Conservation Service Conservation pl,as of the farmers and ranhers with hom we,work are developed and designed to meet their par- ticular soft and w'ter prob- lems, such as: shallow atd droughthy conditions; declin- ing level of soil orgazdc matter and fertility; moderate to se- vere wind and water erosioa,; tillage pan formation; exces- sive wetness due to spring run- off; poor drainage o flood+ig th, at causes alkal conditions, and peren,nial noxious and an- nud weed infestation, to ,n,me but a few. The latter problem i receiving m(st of the tten- tion at th,is time of year. Committees Meeting Many weed c(mmittees throughout the district, coun- ty and state are having meet- ings on the subject of curbing local weed problems. There are many weed turs taking piece weekly, to poinc out the different varieties and wttat is being d(me successfully to control their spreading. M,ost of the easy weeds have been con,trolled with vhat chem- icals or tillage m'hods we have applied so far. The tough ones are the weeds we ave faced with now to try to de-i stroy or prevent. I had occasion to attend a weed tour one aRenzoo last week in the Stevens and Deep Creek townships of the Coun- ty conducted by Keith Wal- lace, weed specialist county ag- e,nt, to lok over some test plots on chemical controls. We loked a,t several plots on he spraying of Leafy Spurge. Some of the results were quite favorable, ochers wexe 'less fav- orable. The cost, at one time, was prohibitive but now seems more reason,a,ble. We saw a few plants of skel- eton weed ju, st gning a foot- hold in this p'ticulav f'ld. From this pointt in the field tlmre were no visible seed sources for the weed to get its start. Some Favorsbt'e We then koked at several test plots on control of Can- a4a Thistle. Some of the chem- ical treatments k)oked favor- able, vhe others seemed ,to kill everything but the thistle. Fina41,y, we observed a thane treated field that looked prom- isig last fall with very few lylams rmainng, but were dis- ,apgointed to find the heavy i'nfestation at this time. The Spokane County Agricul- ture,1 Conservation development group has made approval of a practice lowing cost-sharing for coairol of rmx. mus weeds. The eRgible weeds re: Morning Gory, Cmcla Thistle, Leafy Spuge, Rus- sian Knapweed, White Top and Skeleton weed. In ardor to qualify for cost+shaving on this practice, you must sign up at More history, as it may be written. And so it came to pass in this Great Land that the mighty Poohbahs of the Potomac be- came concerned with the plight of many of the citizens whose years were past three score. ,  i :i7:' For n a previous Dy- - nasty of Pooh-  bahs, there [ had been set[ up what was[ called Social , Security. Into  the great god iii: of the times, :: called U. S.g;l. Treasury, C.W. Harder there poured in monies from both master and servant to build a fund to keep elderly people from want on their re- tirement. And there were Hossanahs throughout the Great Land un- til with the passing of the years it was found by those who had waxed old, that the value of the dollar had waued. And so, to keep body and soul together, many sought to use their ex- perience at light tasks befitting their years to supplement the pittances from the great god U. S. Treasury. * * But the Great Poohbahs held up their hands and said, "Nay, if you want to continue to get from the U.S. Treasury the benefits of the money that wast taketh away from thy pay- checks for Io these many years, then like the lilies of the field, ! thou must toil not, neither must thee spin, for if thou earn more than 25 dollars per week, you lose Social Security." And thus a mighty protest was set up. The Poohbahs were asked "How does it happen that older people who have in- vestments can wax fat and i happy on these incomes and still get Social Security while I am not permitted to help my- self?" And the Poohbahs replied: "Twice blessed is he who clips coupons, for he neither toils, nor spins, and thus does not irritate our great god, U. S. Treasury. And so it came to pass that two leaders from the Province Known as New York, a Rep. Katherine St. George, and a Sen. Kenneth Keating proposed laws to permit those who had passed three score and five to earn as much as they could and still get the benefits of the monies that had been taken from them in their youth. * * * And this caused great con- sternation among the mighty Poohbahs of the Potomac. And so a great council was held by the Poohbahs. And the decision was to not permit people to help them- selves. And forthwith witl a mighty clamor of trumpets there was announced, instead, a big War on Poverty, which was a holy war to keep the people dependent on the manna scattered down by the great god, U.S. Treasury. The rally- ing cry was "Seek ye first the U.S. Treasury, and all things will follow after." For this was an era when there was confusion about many things. In a place called Vietnam and a place called Laos, legions of the Great Land fought and died, and while some people called It war, the Poohbahs said no, it was not war, it was advising. National Federation of Independent Bulnes| the ACP office and have the area inspe,cted before any weed control measures are started. These weed me*ctin,gs and tours are scheduled and an- nounced regularly, awd are very interesting and informa- tive. They are for everyone's benefit. Your atte+n,danee will add to your required knowl- edge of god weed control, I prmnise. Annually, Americans fall victim to $500 toil'lion worth of dietary nonsense in the form of "health" foods and food suppleme,'tts they d(m't need. This is more than the AmeNcan public spends on med,ical educ,ation each year.
