It is the purpase to make such place of Fish lake, which lies within easy ra, oh of the city. At the meeting above mentioned, the fact was called to mind that the city owns a large share of the frontage on the lake. Th'k, :was purchased years ago as a site for a city water plant and for some time was utilized as a source of Cheney's water sup- ply. A 1,arge part off the s:hore- line owned by the city can be easily transformed into a nice beaoh, in the opinion of rrran who have e.amine4 it. 60 Years Ago The proposition of having the postoftice moved directly back ,of the bank o Cheney ___ on f<t.

On the other hanl there ,are, .some who are opposed and in consequeaCe have drown up a remonstrance. !The matter ,has not been de- inately, as it is under- stood it will have to be sub- mitted to the post oHice au- thorities. Tuesday evening was the occasion of a very pleasant laden party at the home if Mr. and Mrs. C. A. Ratcliffe mad family. The lawn was: prettily decorated with J,apanese lan- terns. The Enloe-Korte company off Medical Lake has scured a entract for hauling all ma- terials for the new wing of the asylum and school for de,fec- tire youth. The company has 30 teams at work and the con- tract will amount to i.n the neighborhood of $6000. The En, loe-Korte cmpany is din'g some great busing these days ,nd is mking things ,hum at Medical Lake. Proprietors off the firm are Frank Krte, a[ fomner merchant of Chertey, and Eugene' Enloe, both up-to- date business men. Letter, to the Editor Dear Sir, They say that the correctioa o a condition comes abot only after it is found to be faulty by the people win'king with it. The seri, ousness off this condi- ..... tin ,of course, is multitlied w!hen it end'angea, s human lives. There,fore, it is the obligation o,f each person encountering, or having knowledge f it, to .... asst in eliminating such con- ditions. I am referring to a hazard- us condition on Interstate tiighway 5, or what is known as U.S. Hi,hway 10 where it travels through SnoquM,amie Pass. TbAs is a separatod lilv, vay from Cle Elum, Washington for some seventeen miles, the sep- aration sometimes being as much .as a cty ock. A per- son driving West would find he is driving a modern, limited ac- cess road for these seventeen mile's. On reaching the crest off what is known at Easton Hill, the driver enters a curve. With no warnin(g wlat-so-ever he is facing oncoming traffic. There have been no signs warning of two-way traffic or conditions ahead as he approached this area. This junction of the hiffhway ,has one ,o the worst histories i of traffic accidents on the ,road +o ,,o" 6 So;L C*,st**at, ;dv;,k By Clarence A. Kelley SCS Technician Construction work seems to! be 'hitting the pre,harvest peak. l+ax Merritt, Plaza, 'has com- pleted consuction of two sod vraterways to 2800 lineal feet. Merritt did the work himself using a crawler trac- tor and the Soil :and Water Con- servation District pull-type gra- der. The drairmge areas were small with wetness in the bot- :lomiands beirg the main con- cern. Both waterways have been seeded to a mixture of al- falfa and grass for soil pro,tec- tion. Edgar Widman, Rosalia, is wo, rking .on completion of 2700 lineal feet of sod waterway. Widm, an has also been doing his own work using a cat and dozer. The SWCD grader has been in use also and will pro- vide he finishing touhes. John Bauer, Spangle, is ex- pecting to begin work on 2714 feet of waterway this week. A neighbor MAke McCrourin is doing the construction with a cat and dozer. A[ Versheve and J'ames Robeson, SCS, Spokane, have assisted the ditric in the sta- [ring af most of these projects. Skin'g has been also done on 5400 feet of waterway for A1- 'bert Proff and aproxianaely 1800 feet of open drai ditch or Paul P0a,ssmuussen, ,boh in the Phza area. through the Pass--a fact we'U- krown to the Highway Depart- ment employees who maintain the road. There ks no separation, no feathering .out or chan,neling off vehicles to p.roper lanes. A person traveiirg the ,gh- ay during inclement weather such as rain or saowy cond, i- tions, finds the center fine ob- literated by the snow or from previous sandirgs o,f the road. After dark he is then faced with gllaring hea,dllights of on- cemirrg traffic, irmreasing the hazardous conditions. To remain silent arid not loudly protest the existing eon- Ntims, it seems to me, would be a tragedy. If one life can be saved by this protest, then our d aughetr ,and son-in4aw wil rmt ;have died in vNn. Wih adequate signs arn- ins of the curve and two-way traffic a'head-- a fence-type trifle separator to keep the lane's of traffic apart, so that if a car Should skid it would skid along the spearator and not spin across the highway in- to oncoming traffic  three y ourg lives would ,have been saved and three others vouki ,have been spared serious in- jury. Soon again this year, hun- dreds of college studenls will be using this 'hiffhway -- and up to now no corrective mea- sures Imve been made to avert future tragedies at the. site. By united efforts of ull who travel, or will travel Snoqual- amie Pass, I sincerely h(pe the present dangers will.' be elim- inated to spare other families un,a,a,rrented lk)ss and tragedy. Yours truly, Mrs. Leonard G.

In another recent 5-4 de- c.w. Harder cision, the high court over ruled the law passed by the Congress prohibiting known communists from holding of- flee, in labor unicns. ]Prior to this time it ruled that Congress had no right to impede the delivery free through United States mails communist propaganda from abroad. It also ruled State De- partment has no right to refuse passports to communists. In other words, the sum total of these most peculiar deci- sions is to the affect that com- munists have the full rights and privileges of any citizen. This is somewhat tantamount to a situation that would re- sult if local Humane Society, or SPCA was able to enforce a rule that you could no way in- terfere with any rattlesnake you may find slithering around your home. *** What makes this court posi- tion even queerer, if anything can, is at the same time Amer- icans are killed in Santo Dom- ingo, in Vietnam, seeking to National Federation of Independent Business billions spent in foreign give aways, and in foreign informa- tion services, and in the Peace Corps are for the purpose of selling the world on the evils of communism, what do decisions like this do to the achievement of this noble purpose? How can the Congolese, the Vietnamese, or even the man in Bologna, Paris, or Vienna be impressed with the dangers of commun- ism when U.S. highest court says that communists should be treated with full privileges of a loyal American citizen. It is also interesting that this decision comes at a time a drive is on in Congress to re- peal that section of Taft-Hart- ley labor law which permits states to have laws that allow people to work without paying tribute to a union. By huge majorities the na- tion's independent business proprietors, voting through the National Federation of Inde- pendent Business, have op- posed any such repeal. Now, all should be opposed. Because if unions can force everyone to pay tribute to them, and if they can be head- ed by avowed, known commun- ists, the Kremlin has won the cold war. There ls often a dif- erence between technical le- gality and common sense. It should never be forgotten that Adolf Hittler seized Germany without committing illegality against the constitution of the Weimer Republic. 'filth Fsmro Washington Bar Association DEFENSE OF THE ACCUSED There are many laws design- ed to protect a person accused of a crime. The framers off our constitution insisted that those who violated the law be pun- ished. They also insisted t'hat those who had not cimmitted the crimes they were accused of. Today, ver man, rm ntter how unpopular he or his cause may be, has a right to be rep- resented by cou ,nel if he is ac- cused of a crime. H he does not have the money to he a hw- yer, the court vll ppoint one to defend him. It is the lawyers duty to pre- sent, by ,all fair an<l lronorable means, every deferme permit- ted by law to hr'sure that the accused is not denied .his con- stitutional rights. It is rmt the lawyer's duty to judge the guilt ,or innocence of his client. A lawyer should not be criti- cized because he represents someone who, most people be- lieve, is guilty. The American rule is that ,a person is pre- sumed innocent until he is proved guilty in a court off law, Someone must represent the aeeused in this court off law, arid' the lawyer, by doing this, is ,only fulfilling his duty. Strangely, n,o one critizes the ren!dering of medical assistance to ,a bank robber wunded while attempting to escape. We consider that the humane th,ing !i!i!iiii::iiiiii;,i:!:!!!ii!iii! i[iii!ii::- to do. Yet, people do nat realize that a man accused as a robber ha,s an equally great need for legal counsel to insure that he gets a fair trial and every break that the law allows him. Any one of us might be fa'tse- lv accused off a crime It would be unforturmte iaaleed if we i were denied cotrnsel because of the unpopuhrity of our cause obvious guilt. Thus, bore we critiicize the defense and the assertion of he rights of a person accused off a ,crime, Should we not think and say: "there, but for the grace ,of C_rod, go I."
