FROST .................................. PUBLISHER JACK PIERCE .................................... EDITOR Was An Oversight in Manners Committed? The granddaughter of the man who gave this city its name was taken &lt;m a tour of Eastevn Washington State College this week without, we feel, an opportunity being given an official from Cheney to be present. Somewhere along the line planners of Mrs. Ruth Cheney Streeter's visit here appar- ently forgot, or disregarded, an invitation to the mayor of Cheney or some other repre- sentative to officially greet Mrs. Streeter. She arrived Menday afternn, without a Cheney representative to greet her; she had dinner at the Spokane Club, which was at- tended by college officials and members of the board of trustees, but no Cheney representa- five; she stayed overliight in Cheney ad toured the college, all without an official rep- resentative from the city which bears her name being able to accompy her. Mrs. Streeter's grardfather, Benjamin P. Cheney, of course, gave birth to the old Nor- mal School and the city, too, adopted '.his frame. It desn't seem to us like it would h.ave taken much foresight and courtesy to at least have extended an invitation to Cheney's mayor or the president of the Chamber of Commerce to meet Mrs. Streeter and extend to h, er their greetings. It may have been unintentional, and we hope it was, but the lack of a proper invita- tion was somewhat rude, to say the least. A satisfactory explanation or poto,gy for this gross oversight in manners should not be long in coming from the committee plan ning Mrs. Streeter's visit. The city, it should be remembered, does bear her family name. To our knowledge, no building or marker bearing the Cheney name exists at the college today. The Defections Of Keating And Javits Republicans who understand their Party should not :shed many tears over the threat- ened defections of New York Senators Ken- neth Keating and Jacob Javits. If these genemen choose to go their sep- arate way, like spoiled children whe don't get thair own way t games, no one should lose much ,sleep over the prospect. In the last presidential year ,of 1960 there were some 39 million Americans who either didn't register, didn't vte, or both. A popular notion now being recognized is that many of these dormant veters will, in all probability, come to the polls for the Republicans in Nevember. Many of them are said to be among the growing horde of con- serv,tives who are tired, once and for al, of the government's attemp to enter every aspect of their lives. Up tmil nv, the theory goes, they haven't been particularly interest- ed in voting far either party, falling to under- stand or perceive a clear difference in either party's domestic and foreign policy. The Ken- nedy administration dispelled beyond any doubt that a wide area of difference, indeed, does exist between Denlocratic and Repubh- can philosophy. Those policies and the men chosen to execute them are, for the most part, still .active in the government. For theSe reasons and many others, mil- Rons of non-voters are expected to vote this year because they have been offered a firm choice between the welfare state and indi- vidual responsibility. No one, then, should mourn the loss of Javits ,and Keating, ,as they and their follow- ers are likely to be replaced many times again by disgruntled Americans who are sick to death of expandi:ng government irgluence. Oe thing we are supposed to learn early in life is how to accept defeat, for it comes our way many times durirg the course of a ifetime. Not everyone had his own way at the Republican convention, as there were several outstanding men to choose from. But, apparently, the New York senators felt it was their way or none. Their threatened defec- tion doesn't speak very well for them, and it casts grave doubts on their sincerity as professed Republicans. 40 Years Ago 1924 Two bids were submitted to the General George Wright W.R.C. for the erection of a lnemorLal monument in the city park. Mr. and Mrs. H. C. Ball cele- brated the4r glden wedding anliversary July 12 at their home in Cheney. Mrs. Basil ws formerly Miss Alice L. Duty. They were married near Parks- ville, Me.

The Free Methodist chmch ttas secured the Blackman building at the corner of First and D Streets, where their ser- vices will be held beginning Sunday. The bmlding was fox- merly occupied by undertaker D. G. Jerue. The first letter sent east from Cheney by way of the government's axplane servic was mailed Wednesday by Mrs. F. L. Ratcliffe at a cost of 24 cent. Clney's new 524 foot well was officially tested Sunday by Mayor H. N. Stronach and he city 0ouncll. The $11,000 well includes a centriugal tromp. This gives Cheney three deep wells, a 562 foot well complet- ed several years a, go artd the Normal school well, which is 507 feet deep. Water was pumped from the three welS for 12 lmurs Sunday at the rate of 620 go'lions a min. te with no .rmice,ble lowering of the water level  any of the wells.

Approximatedj, 70 per cent of the total cost of the new American I.gion home has been pledged. Papal Rozall, commander, said 22 per cent had been pledged by those l liing outside the city; 37 per cent by rein'dents o Cheney, and 41 per cen by Legion members from World War I. 'rim building of the new kca- tion was conStrcted 18 years ago by the late Rtbey Kelly, a prominant figure in local busi- ness and pelitil life. Sgt. Morris R.

Emily was in the :hospital suffei, ng from a bleeding Ul- cer. He - deetor ,haki that she was dng and cou'td only be saved by a blood transfusion. Emily refused the transfusion as it was against her religious beliefs. The attorney for the hospital went to court asking the judge to issue an order permitting the transfusion. After a :hear-, ing a judge of the United States Court of Appeals au- thorized the trnusion. Em- fly's life was saved. Later, after she had left the I hospitaI, Emily, demanded an- t other hearing ,by the full Court of Appeals (rune judges). She claimed that her personal rights had been v.ioated. Against Religion "his transfusion was against my religious beliefs," said Emizy. "Doesn't the Con- stitution guarantee my free- dom of religion? Don't I h@ve the right to refuse medical treatment ? ' The judge issued a lengthy opinion ctarffying his reasons for ahl'ilg the transfusion. In his opimon :he posed some interesting questions. If sui- cide is illegal, ,he asked, can a judge allow a t-mspital patient to choose death by refusing medical treatment? Also, if it is un, lwful for a perent to abandon a child, can a judge Conservation News I I CHENEY By Clarence A. Kelley, Soil Conservation Service Spring developments axe en the increase throughout the district. Experience o,f farmers and va, nchers has sdaown lhat a spring development is one of the least costly of any con- servation practice and among the most profitable. A good spring on rangeland is many times hard to find. Some of these prized water sources have been destroyed through trampling by live- stock. A good spring develop- lnent p.rject uncovers this source, many times increasing the flow, and then brings it into a cntral collection box or reservoir. Such reservoirs protect the source from trampling and possible de- struction. Sanitation is a big point in favor of such developments. Providing elea, flowing water to livestock helps prevent ds- eases and infestatior, which often occur in stagnated water holes. The cool temperature of running spring water is more appealing to livestock and with adequ'ate storage facilities Eey can drink their fill much eas- ier and faster. Spring Reliable A developed spring is reli- able. The water source does not vary much as it does in potholes. During winter months it provides an easer water supply for livestock as compared to frozen potholes and drainage areas. Livestock ,having access to a plentiful water supoly will make more rapid weight gains. Studies have also shown that the utiiization of forage is highly associated with water supply. The results of these studies idicate tha conser- vation and e{ficient hvestock production are best served when livestock water spac,ing does not exceed one-half mile. The utilition of range forage decrease appromately 10 per- cent for every .2 mile from water. Range 1.5 miles from water shows a useage patterrn of approximately 20 percent. his is a 50 percent waste in forage based .on a normal use of 70 percent. Ea, rl IIill, Ivan Calvert, Mrs. Herman Ctarno, the Sooy Bros., and others who have devel- oped springs, all agree they are a valuable asset to any landowner. This is true not only fern th sta'ndpoint of good livestock water but from the domestic and wRdlfe value. LETTERS...

In the period from 1949 up through May 6, 1964, the United States lost over $9 billion in gold, or roughly 37 per cent of its supply, so that now the na- tion could not redeem the dol- lars held by foreign nations.

Harder * * * Since 1946 through 1963 to 123 foreign nations, including possessions o France, England and Holland, some 103 billion, 916 million dollars have been given away under tbe name of foreign aid. This money was given, in case it has been for- gotten, to feed the starving, clothe the naked, and get a little industry started so people could get laY" checks. The Central African Republic composed of some 1,000,000 people, which is about as close a count as they could make in the bushes, was given a mil- lion dollars. But apparently very little of this was used to buy hippopotami steaks for the starving, or what.ever ti:ey eat, because $700,000 of this dona- tion bought wih U.S. gold. * * g*.

It took the entire $46 mil- lion plus additional dollars it picked up along the way to buy a $71.4 million chunk of the U. S. gold reserves. Surinam, also known as Dutch Guiana, is an interesting case at point. Back in 1667 the Dutch were forced by the Brit- ish to trade New York for Suri- nam, and today it is a part of the Netherlands. It's 308,000 people mine 65% of the alu- minum ore used by the Ameri- can aluminum industry. But handed some $4 million in for- eign aid, it forthwith took $2.5 million of it to buy a chunk of the U. S. gold reserve. Lebanon, which is only about 4/5th's the size of Connecticut, with a population of less than 2,000,000, really tapped the U.S. taxpayers in a solid manner, taking $88 million, or around $50 per person. And what did the wily Leban- ese do with this $88 million bon- anza. They took $53.1 million of it and exchanged it for a chunk of the U.S. gold reserve. * * * And so on and on examples can be shown. But to sum up in the five years 1958 through 1963, nations which had re- ceived foreign aid dollars took almost $7 billion of these dol- lars and used them to whittle away the American gold re- serve. Or in other words, of the $9 billion in gold loss, $7 bil- lion of this loss was made pos- sible hy give away dollars. Some say the U. S. State Dept. is brilliant.
