FROST .................................. PUBLISHER JACK PIERCE .................................... EDITOR Presidential Election Offers Clear Choke Everyone ts saying that this year&apos;s presi- dential campaign will be the hardest fought of modern times. That seems a certainy, in the light f the characters and positions of Presidert Johnson arid Senator Goldwater. Both are politicians of the dving type, and neither gives quarter when matters of power, influence and lnciple are at stake. Along with this, a gzat m,an in,formed people thin: k that the election may .be the most htorica}ly import,nnt of the century. For, in their view, out of it could come pol- itical re-alignments that wouM vastly change the political complexion f the country and determine for a long time to come the course we are to take, both in domestic matters and our atti-ude toward world affairs. The big question has to do with what is called the mainstream of presentMay Amer- ican thinkirg, ft iS the question that, in the opinion of the conservative g r o u p s which make up the dedicated hard-core of C,<fld- water supporters, the American people have net ,had a chance to answer. They argue that the voters ,have not been given a dear-cut Choice between two sharply differerLt phil- osophies of government For the most part, their argument continues, there 'has been an excess of "me-toodsm" on the part of Repub- lican candidates, ,and th,Ls ,has alienated great rmmbers of voters and played into the hands of the Democrats. The pelmt, as they see it, has been the gradual delopment of a wel- fare sta gover ,nnent which is not wanted by a majority of our citizens. Next November should certainly tell how much truth there is or isn't in this position. The Presidont ,and the Senator prcvide, in their policies, .abot as broad a difference as anyone could ask. That difference exceeds to every issue of a consequence. The Ad- mstation hel'ds that our intermingled de- fense and foreign Fo]cies are ,sound and pro- ductive; the ,other side charges timidity, inde- cision and retreat, and finds grave defects in our military programs. The President is un- equivocally committed to the new civil rights bill; Senator Goldwater voted affair, st it--no because he opposes racial equ, atity, but on corstitutionl ground& Mr. Johnson solidly backs major extensions o federal aid and relief projects of assorted kinds; Mr. Gold- water holds that these, generally, are wrong in prinp1e .and ineffective and excessively wasteful in practice. The rights, obligations and responsibilities of the states are very precious to the Senator, and he =sees the in- crease of federal power .as a menace to our very system of government. The President disagrees, toth men and parties, of course, are in agreement in hheir opposition to the communist tide, but there is a world of dif- ference in the policies they urge to contain and defeat R. There is no dvubt float the Goldwater drive is making deep inruads in the once solidly Democratic South, or that the Democrats are picking up strertgth in ome areas that were once dependably Republican. Indeed, Ws been a long time since there were so many political question marks on the horizon, or when it was so difficult to armlyze the 'hopes, beliefs rd loyalties of the elector- ate. And the stakes---not just for the parties and the candidas, but for us all are great beyond measure. Christiansen's Past Requires Study Dan Evans ,and Richard Christensen, the Republican gubernatorial candidates in this state, recenly .bad a rather barbed verbal exchange. The ,h a r g e s were initirated by Evans, who contends that Christensen's rel- ative yuuth and his obvious lack of admin- istrative experie.n,ce s h o u 1 d be considered by voters in the Sept. ] 5 primary. CAwisten- sen, after a short exchange and defense on his n behalf, then ann,ourmed he would not a,nswer any more of Evans' charges, but would confirm his fi,ghtig to the Democrats. With the wimary orAy a few weeks away, a good, hard 'ook .at Cb.ristensen's qu.alifica- tides would seem to be in order. The state- ments made by Evans, one must convlude, are baed on .some very rative acts. Ohristensen, 33', spent eight of those years studying for the nms,try. In the Korea W,ar he was attenng theological seminary. He came to Washir, gton from Nebraslm in 1956 as a missin'ry to the Shoreline area near Se- attle. He worked for a whle as a Democrat in that area on the 1960 Kennedy campaign. Foll, owig the election, a reliable source says, he took a trip to Washington where he asked Wa,slRngton's Democratic senators to 'help him get an adm,nstrative job in the Peace Corps. When this didn't materialize, .e came back to Washington, switched pcflitica,1 parties arid ran raganst Senator Magnusun. Following his defeat, he was a paid speaker at meetings for a few months, helped people fill ou ,loan applications t a Lynnwood bank, and oper- ated ,a roadside fruit stand. Then, in 1963, he announced he wod be a candidate for gov- ernor. He .stated 'he would form a committee i which wouM crash teaeb b_im the nature of i state problems and issues. Evans, on the other hand, is a life,long Republican. He holds a degree in civil engineerin, g from the University of Wash- ington. He volunteered for military service, was commissioned a Naval of f i c e r at 19 and served aboard an aircraft carrier and a de- stroyer in World War II a:d the Korean War. Followg the war he was ,assistant general mazmger of the Ass'n of General Contacors. Then he formed Grey and Evans Engineering, a firm which has carrmd out many W- ington engineerin'g wojeets. Evans 'has been elected to the State Legis- hture four eonsecutive times with subsn- tial majorities. As Repb]Jcn floor leader in the l,ast two sessions, he has consistently fought the Roseilr,i machine. In the last ses- sion, urtder his leadership, a Democratic im- position of $23 million in new taxes on indi- viduals ad industry was wevented. Chvstensen carmot turn the other cheek in a political battle, and ,he sktould aner the charges by Evans if he expects Washing- ton Republican, s and disgruntled DemocraLs to vote for him in September. They are charges that need answering. 30 Years Ago 1934 Two (lheney boys, Don Co- ley arid "" West were picked out of 1600 for Mythical Junior Legion Nine. Don Cn- ley was chosen uously as bekng the best pRe0ner in the state mid Lemmrd "Pink" West received a m'ajmty vote for "all.s "tar" c.tcher. This was his first experience behind the bat.

Jet aircraft have made it quick and easy for people to go from one part of the world to another-- and have pro- vided a new risk in the spread  of disease. Diphtheria is just as fatal as it was 50 years ago---but ira- are Melvin Cheesman, Wilfred munization can now prevent it. As any parent of a small boy knows, there is nothing more devious than they in devising means of escape going to bed at the proper hour. They need a glass of water, they have to get up to brush their teeth, as they forgot, or there is some- thing they have to get to tak This is all due to the report by the U. S. Surgeon General ] that cigarettes can be a causa- l tire factor in lung cancer. It is not the purpose here to go into [ the pro and con of this discus- ] sion, but it is significant that [ even the Surgeon General feels [ if any action is taken, it should " be by Food and Drug Admin- istration, not FTC. This ruling is a curious one to the extent that FTC abandons its intended duties in the field of economic health to dabble in the area of public health. to school in the morning. ' In short, any- . thing to avoid  doing wh al  they are sup-j posed to do. Into t h is iilI category too : often falls the  F e d e r a 1 c.w. Harder Trade Commission. Actually, the principal responsibility with which this agency is charged is that of enforcing the Robinson - Patroon Act which prohibits discrimination in the market place, illegal discriminatory discounts, false "bait" advertising, and other practices which destroy inde- pendent business and jobs. As anyone familiar with pres- ent business practices knows, the FTC has a long way to go before it can say it has even made any substantial progress on antitrust. But a strange thing has now happened to the FTC on its pre- i sumed way of doing the job it l was set up to do. It is now guarding the public health. With great fanfare, the waste of a lot of taxpayers time ant money, it has issued an order that beginning on January 1, i all cigarette packages must bear on the label awarning that the product may be dangerous I to health, and six months later I has decreed this warning must appear in all advertising. ) Nml Flmmtl  Imleldmt Btm * * * It is perhaps true that ex- cessive smoking has killed some people. Other people have been killed by excessive drink- ing, thus to be consistent, FTC should presumably issue or- ders on the labeling and a- vertising of liquor. Thus. there may be more than meets the eye here. Mon- opolistic and international forc- es have long been working to destroy the U. S. antitrust laws. So far they have met with little success. But there may be higher strategem involved here. Bear in mind that tobac- co is an important southern crop. The southern states are irritated enough as it is, and this could well be a move look- ing toward agitating a move- mitted by law and conducted with :all due care, he may cause irreducible sks o harm to others and t'herefore be held strictly liable for whatever harm is caused. In cases in- volvirg the use of exl]'osives the courts have generally ,heAd that "you blas at your periL" In another case, persons fum- igattn,g a building with a nox- ious poison were held lable for personal injury from es- caping gas. The law applies the principle o,f strict liability to protect the trine,cent and blameless. It puts tim burden on those whose activities are of such a dangerous nature ha,t their activities must be made to carry the ,risk. Such extra risks are usually insured against. Otherwise many us,eful and necessary activities could not be carried on at al simply b e c a u  e those so ezgaged could not ,afford to take the risk of p,sib]e damage. (This column is wtten to inform, not advise. Facts may charge the .application of the law.) TRAFFIC TIP Steering a car with both hands is still one of the best technique to ,avoid traffic troubles. One hand on the heel cuts steering control al- most in ha,lf, often maldng it impossib! to dodge unexpect- ed hazards. Conservation News I I CENEY meet in Congress to abolish the agency that is supposed to en. force the anti-trust laws. Elimi- nation of FTC would also eliminate its tobacco order. Thus, the whole plan may be to hit at the antitrust laws by closing up the agency that Is supposed to enforce those laws. If this strategem sounds strange, it should be home in mind the Washingten anger- ground moves in arrange wys. LETTERS...

By RICHARD JESSEN Soil Conservation Service Interest in constructing ponds or dams for wildlife is on the increase by the Sou, th- west Spokane Soil and Water Conservation District co0pera- tors. Last year Albert and Em- i cry Babb constructed a pit- type pond that is spring-fed at Emery' home on route 3. i Cheney. This year John and Mike McGourin, Spangle, are already in the process of con- structing ,a spring-fed, pit-type pond. Later this year Earl Hill of Plaza plans to develop one. Seveva,1 other persons have in- dicated they are also inter- ested. So far, the ponds have been f,.rly large in size. They are about 100 feet wide and up to 200 feet long and are 8 to 10 feet deep. A minimum depth of depth of 8 feet should be pro- 8 feet shou,d be provided in 10 per cent ov 'more of the hn- pourdmer, t for ma,intenance of desirable temperatures for fish May Cause Risks Thus under 20th century law there may be liability with- out fault fo,r certain activiUes.
