EDITOR J IN 1100E BOX Cheney ranks third in population in Spo- kane County in the latest figures comviled by the Washington State Census.board. Of the 11 incorporated places in Spokane (3aunty, Chemy ranks behind Spokane and Medical Lake, with a ceus of 3,596. Spokane is first with 184,500 followed by Medical Lake with 3,712. Others in descending order are Millwvod, 1,780, and Deer Park, 1,285. The smallest municipality in .this area is W, averly, with 86 in.habitants. Over at the University of Washington, they have a football conditioning drill that is def- initely NOT designed for high school athletes. Basically, the Husky athletes .do this: They form two lines and two players run at each other full speed, knocking helmets with a tremendous impact as they come together. The sound of helmets clanging together can be heard throughout the stadium. It makes your head hurt just watching them. They rese'mble bull elk during mating season, in a way. These boys, as one informed coach puts it, are the cream of the crop, and high school coaches should not make the mistake of imitating these sophisticated conditioning drill's with 150 pound high school boys. Bll Kropp, who operated the PIX Theatre here la year, plas to reopen the theater this fall, .as soon as he gets final details worked out. As of now, he plans to open the PIX Oct. 9. Kropp manages the West End Drive- lrL during the summer months. Incidentally, Kropp said a science fiction thriller called 'l'he Flesh Eaters" pulled the biggest crowds of ,any fiim shown at the drive in this summer. This little gem dealt with a mysteviou,s, shin- ing substance in the ocean that devoured any living thing that came within its grasp. Speaking of movies, Peter Sellers (Dr. Strangelove) has got to be the funniest man in films these days. "The Pink Panther," which has been playing at a Spokane theater, is worth a couple of hours away from the one eyed monster if you get a chance. Last week Cheney High School football coach Ji Hatch said he figured Dayton would be the toughest team the Btaclvhawks would play this year. In case you missed it Colfax .beat Dayton AT DAYTON ,last week- end, 12-7. Clfax has two ex-Marines playing in the "line 'this season. One of them, Mike Bryant, weighs 218 pounds.

Ir00th Washington Bar Almoclatlon CHANGING TIMES The principals of law and jstice have held good for cen- ttLries, but meanthne ore" so- ciety has become more com- plex. Sometimes we need to up- date our laws. More often we have to use bottex judgment in apptymg them to ,the clag- ing times. 1. On the whole, the old rule of law still holds flint if aome. body harms you on purpose ov frn 'lk of due care you ca sue for damages. But in our factories with mass productim an'd ,automation you may find it hard to pin the blame on a given person. So we ,hve 'had to set up a workman's compen- sation board to award mone to injured workers on an in- surance basis. Simple Partnership 2. Or suppese Joe, Bill and Ken decide to go into partner- ship -- Joe to make, Bill to sell, ,and Ken to finance the Weget busess. They ask their hw)ner for "just a sim- ple partnership contract." Mind you, thesr can have a sim- ple partnership. But what with taxes as they are, will such a! simple document serve them well if their deaHrgs are com- plex? Maybe they shouM in- corporate or take  few move pages to s;mll out how they whack up thor profits, or dis- solve their partnevghip.

Harder sical character who somehow has a personal grudge against what is called foreign aid. When during the recent ap- proval of a few more billions to give away he was outmaneu- vered, certain writers seeming- ly expressed feeling that was the greatest strategic victory since the Normandy landing. * * * Yet Rep. Passman has de- veloped and released some astounding figures. From De- cember 31, 1952, through 1963, U. S. gold holdings dropped from over $23 blUion to slightly more than $15 billion, a drop of $7,S$6,,000. In the same period the other countries, excluding the Russo- China bloc, almost doubled gold holdings, going from $13 billion to over $24 1/3 biLLion.

A man may ask for "just a simple will," giving wimt he has, say, to his wife, should ,he die first. But a will that goes a bit more in detail may ve money and preserve an estate for a man's children. In some cses, for eample, by leavirg his property in trust for his wife While he fives nd to go on her death to their chliren:, he might well save on inheri- t, ante taxes and ther costs. The point of this is simple. I1 changing times like ours, y ou are still working with much the same tried and ue principles ot j,ustice as did our forefathers, but it nay be harder for us to apply them wisely in our more conplex world. (This column is written to inform, not advise. Facts may! change the application of the  law.) imm debt totaled $309 billion, while the combined national debts of all the rest of the free world nations totaled $232 billion. This coupled with his figures that show every year since 1950, with the exception of 1957, there has been a deficit in the U. S. balance of payments posi- tion which totaled at the end of 1963 almost $27 billion, causes wonder why such conditions continue. Of course, the foreign aid give away boys seem some- what confused as to the objec- tives of the program. While on one hand they are giving away birth control equipment all over the world, they also hand out to Nationalist China over $13 worth of "Royal Bee" cap- sules, advertised as a sex re- :uvenator, Rep. Clarence Brown of Ohio reports. This would seem to be working toward op- posite tirections. Rep. Brown is also curious about the $999 worth of bubble gum given to Turkey. He can- not quite ascertain how bubble gum can be used to stop com- munist aggression. And of course, perhaps classic is the shipment made by the foreign aid experts with U. S. tax dollars of Metrecal. Presumably the slogan here is "help starving people get even j thinner on Metreeal". * $ $ So, it gives pause to Wonder over the reports that in{Heated Umt in out mamuvorlng Rep.

The 3,520 fo,ot project is bein(g done by A1 Rosenau. Stockmen Advised On Grubs Spokane County stockmen and dairymen were reminded tod, ay that it is about time to apply systemics for cattle grub control. Gitbert H. Heggemeier, the courty extension agert, said that one .application of either of two available systemics-- Co-Rai and Ruelene--ive ex- cellent cattle grub control. Either can be used on beef ,animals three months of age and older and on dry dairy animals. Neither should be used on lactating dairy ani- mals, on animals under three months of age or on ailing ani- mals. Application of either chemi- cal before Ovt. 15 is desirable, Gilbert H. Heggemeier said. Dr. Roy Hostetlex, W'axhig- ton State extension veterirmr- Jan, cautions that severe prob- lems can develop if either or- ganic phosphate is applied af- ter Nov. 1. Will Kill Grubs A later application of the one-dose control m etlmd wold kill the grubs when they. were almost or completely full- grown. The killed okier grubs: would dump considerable amounts of foreign prote in- to the animal's system. The an- imal's body must then absorb and overcome this fareig, n su stance. If fu,llgrowr larvae are killed in the region of the g, ullett ar backbone, possible ill sheets could include a closed esoh- agus or nerve injury to the spin,al cord. If a systemic is a, ppled well before Nov. 1, larv ave small. and only short localeaeUons David Brannon, WSU exten. sion entomologist, provides the following recommeons for application of the two system- ics.

Apply the spray over the en- tire surface of the animl's body until the animai is com- pletely soaked to the hide.
