FROST .................................. PUBLISHER JACK PIERCE .................................... EDITOR Profit System Serves Us All Wlt is the signficar, ee of profit--vhat does it aceomp lish? There is ,an easy answer to this dual ques- ti'on--that profit is the way those wh) own and invest their savings in business and in- dustry axe rewarded. But profit does more, much more. It is a meohanism--a very vital mevlmnism--'hich guarantees that the wast cortsuming vublic will be offered the gods and services it was. An officer of ne company puts the matter this way: "Profit... is a kind of traffic cop which @irects the use of resources into the streets and avenue.s where production can flow freelff. It is the public which decides What it wants, not the business manager. He tries to satisfy the customer's warts as he appraises them. If he is wl-ortg, (he falS . . . The risk of failure must be matched by an adequate reward for success, or there would be Ro reaso to take the risk. It ix this vthich regulates our business system." In systems where profit is outlawed----ex- cept to the state--economic problem is piled upon economic problem, smetimes to the extent of clmas. The Soviet Union is an ex- ,ample. It has a (huge papu1don and vast re- sources. Yet, despite all (he plans and prom- ises, consumer wants go unsa ".tisfied or year after year, decade after decade. There is rm incentive the centive profit grmides---to make the most of resources, and there is no imperative eed to please none or any group save those in power. The drive which profit provides-in pro- during new products, in improving old ones, in seeking to outdo competitors in ma`tters of price and service--serves us all. Let's Use Caution This L00Jb,r Day Labor Day is a youthful institution, as na- Uen,al h o I i d a y s go. But its place in the rmtion, a1 life is secure and .h<mored. It pro- tides ,a formal and wel-earned salute to all workirg people, within ,and without the unions. And this is a tribute that goes be- yond the cltart, ging problems and controver- sies that have to do with labor legislati(m and rabor's ,rights and privileges. Too, Labor Day has another special char- aeteristic. It gives most of us a three-day holiday in this age of the five-day work week. And millions of peop take advantage of it to journey in search of new sights and scenes, or to go again to favored vacation spots. La- bor Day 'has become a day of fun, rehation and sports. UrhapFlly, lowever, that bright Prospect is not rea]od for an appallingly large num- ber of us. They re the ctims of Labor Day's toll of deas and injures. The mis- handled automobile becomes a killer of al- most war ",]ke dimension. The ll of drownings steadily mounts and ignorance or dsregard of the rules and reeautians that are essen- tim to safe beating are big factors in tls. The tragic part of R all is tha te wast majority of these and other aeodets are to- tally unnecessary. They don't just happen careless, thoughtless and uninformed human beings make them happen. If all of us this coming Labor Day period would use just rudimenaxy caution wherever we go and whatever we do, the expected accident toll would be reducod spectacularly. How about it? 30 Years Ago 1934 Miss Frances McManamon o Othello and Walter Ottomeier were married at Ephrata Aug- ust 27. Funeral services for Chas. E. Maxon, 68, who died August 24 at Yakima were held from the Spangle Commun,ity hvis- tian church Tlmrsday.

The peseat total of such applications received in calendar year 1964 is 92. Ths compares to a year's total of 160 or 1963. Our resporsibili`ty'to these appliications, as SCS techric- tans, is Vo assist farmers tech- nically in the design, layout, and ,construction of these prac- tices. This fall in New York, eight men will go on trial for alleg- edly profiting to the extent of $100,000 for bilking a few huge combines in the grocery prod- uct manufacturing field who is- sue coupons out of at least $100,000. These men are charged with collect- lng coupons, nd selling them to food stores at a low rate. The grocers then C. W. Harder sent the coupons in for redemp- tion, regardless of whether or not they handled the prodncts involved, and received the cash from the manufacturers. Marvin Pollner, assistant U.S. attorney who secured the in- dictment from a grand jury says tLat of some $10 billion worth of coupons issued by the big soap and food combines eacta year, at least $100 million worth arc illegally redeemed. lie also has expressed the view that perhaps the entire legality of present couponing mathc, ds should be looked into. While not having any affect on the guilt or innocence of the eight mcn to be tried, this ob- servation brings focus on some most intercsthg collateral con- sidera;ions. Nobody but a few big com- bines can coupon to this vast extent. The purpose is twofold. One is to knock out local and regional competition. Tim other is to force stores to handle their brands whether they want to stock them or not. The c, ost of il this, of course, is borne by he consumer, as National Fedeltlon of Independent Busines the price charged for the mer- chandise covers the costs of issuing these coupons which is almost tantamount to issuing currency. This, then, does raise a ques- tion as to the morality, if not the technical legality, of per- mitring this type of economic piracy to continue. It is also reported that a big factor in the illegal redemp- tions of coupons is the chain stores. Reportedly they will take in coupons on all types of goods, or brands, whether they handle them or not, and give the allowance to the customer on the purchase of other goods. Thus, in one sense of the word, the chain stores can be said to be conspiring in this matter of illegal redemption. * * $ On the other hand, many chains have not only made it plain that they resent coupons being issued, but many have made it very public they will honor any coupons brought to their stores. Many other stores do the same thing, rather than risk losing an established cus- tomer to some other store. Thus, a few big combines, seeking to steal shelf space away from independent com- petitors, wield in effect, a mul- ti-billion dollar blackjack. But when somebody takes them at their own game, they set up a mighty howl for the law to do something about it. $ * * This, then, is the nut of the entire ethical problem. Should a robber, breaking into a store, be able to demand police protection while doing o from the hi-jackers eady to ounce on him? . ,, ii i Letters to the Editor.../_/00 l _ '" The furious attack on Rich- ard G. Christensen in the rec- ent edition of The Cheney Free Press is nohin,g more tban a futile reactio,n, to the fact that Mr. Christensen is the leading candidate in the peoples minds as the next go- ernor of Washingto sate. Mr. Christensen was even criticized far being idealistic to the point of wanting to join t the Peace Crps. The climax I in criticism, however, was that I not only ttid he want to join I the Peace Corps, but that at] one time in ,his life he comrnt-I ted that cardinal sin--he was a Democra L If experience is to be the only factor in who is to be the next governor, we sho,uld all turn to Albet Roselkin. For- turtately, this is no.t the case. Few people wil.1 argue the point that the governor's chair should be occupied by. a com- petent administrator. The American College "Dictionary defines an administrator as a person with a talent for man- aging antl organizing. Mr. Christensen in 1962, starting alone, built a satewide orgam- ration .of 10,000 .people, raised ever $225,000 in campaign funds and came very close to unseating the Senior Senator, Mr. 1Vlagmson, vho has occu- pied this seat for over 20 year's. Tlds accompishment offers ample prof that Mr. Christensen lms the taen not oty ,as a dedicated leader but as a canpeten ad, ,'.ministrator. Dedicated leaders ,have the courage to speak out .prior to the election on issues and problems facing the people they seek to lead. Dick tensen has spoken out an umny issues. Among them are Right 'to Work, Open Housing, Edu- cation, Preservation of oux Power and Waer Resources from raids of the Southwest and Open Gmb'Lhtg in Wh- ington State. To date the an l ation by our Republican at ponent has been a Yes Vote on the Gambling Bill. We can only ask why the strange si- lerme on all these vital issues prior to the election? William H. Trefry Spokane County Chairman Citizens for ChnStensen I wish to congratulate the chairman Carmen Sev, art, and the membem of the school board for their well-thought- ,rot, common sense approach to our school problem. Also, I wiPh to cogratulate them for their coice of a school superintendent. In the short time that Mr. Riggs has been here he has proven to me that he is the man for the job. I cannot speak far others, but for the Shea family we will support the bond and mill age levy on Sept. 15. Ira E. Shea P.S. Mr. Harry Hampton has a good suggestion for step No. 2. That is to call in the soil conservation and the cooperat- ing members to do the la'nd- soaping. This I atso will sup- port. p, . _ ,,m mmmTto Washington Bar Association The Abandoned Burglary Allen a.nd Mike were plan- ning to burglarize Brovn's Jewelry Store. Allen did not expect to have trouble getting into the store, since Mike worked hexe. Before the date of the bur- glary, Mike told Brown about the plans. It was then arranged to permit Allen to easter the store and have the plice ar- rest him as he c. ,ane out. On the night in question, everything went according to schedule. Alen went to the store and was let in by Mike, who had z emained in the stre after cl, oin g. Once inside, Allen began to suspect a trap and left without stealrg ,anything. However, ,he l was arrested and charged with burghry. Statute Define "Our statutes def'me bur- g}ary as interttion,ly entering, without consent, n buildg or dwelling, wth the intent to steal," said the district attor- ney. "Allen is guity of bur- glazT whether he took aty- thing or not." "I am not guilty," said Alien,. "The statutes say th you ran, st enter without the owner's I consent to be gudlty. I entered with Brown's fu'll knowledge and eorent. He knew I was comirg, and ,he let me in just to ap me. Is the fact that Alien entered the store with the owner's, krtowledge and apparent co-[ sent ,a defense to the charge of t burglary? "Yes," sued the Supreme Court of Alaska in such a sit- nation. Under the statutes, an uRlimited consent to enter, whether express or implied, given by the owner or oher authorized person eorstitutes a defeme to a elmrge of tmr- gl, ary. In this case Brown knew the exact time and da.te of Al- len's irtended burglary. He I not only allowed ABen to en- ter the store, but arranged with Mike to let him in. TMs amounted to an implied can- sent to the entry. Allen won the ease. (This column is written to in- form, not advise. Facts may change he application o, the law.)
