T. FROST .................................. PUBLISHER JACK PIERCE .................................... EDITOR Predicting football game results is almost as American as pizza these days. Picking po- litical results is also a popular game among the working press, so we're going to shoot the works this week .and ,lick 'am. Well, here goes. And mind yo, these are not picked from the heart. As the philoso- phers woud say, these picks are drawn from empirical pragmatism, or something along those es (with .all due apologies to Dr. Stearns, who knovs better). The big one goes to Uncle Lyndon--Lym- don Johnson defeats Barry Goldveater for the Presidency of the United States of Amer- ica. U. S. Senate--Henry M. Jackson over Lloyd J. Ardrews. U. S. Congressman, ifth district--Walt Heron over Thomas S. Foley. Governor--Dan Evans over Albe.rt D. Ros- eUini. Lieutenant Governor--John A. Cherberg over William C. "Bill" Goodloe. Secretary of State---A. L. "Lud" Kramer over Victor A. Meyers. State Auditer--R. B. "Bob" Gra,ham over Victor B. Fleming. Attorney General--John J. O'Connell over Paul R. Derr. Commissioner of Public Lands---Bert Cole over Samuel J. Clarke. Insurance Commissioner--Lee L. Kueck- ethan over Frank N. McCartney. State Representative, fifth district--W. L. "Bill" McCormick and Keith Campbell defeat Gerald L. Salixtg 'and Bill E. McKee. State Senator, fifth dirstrict---John J. Cooney over Dale Dural. The ir, ithtives and referendums are tough- ies ,to pick, so we'll only attempt two of them. Referendum No. 12passed. Referem,dum No. 34---defeated. Take your pick .among the superior and supreme court judges and superintendent of public instruction in non-tmTtisan, uncontest- ed races. This community will probably rttte many of these choices, and the autlmr 'himself irttonds to do. However, they are made on the basis of expected ultimate victory, rather than on a personal or community basis. One other thing about the presidential race. When the chips all fall in place, and Lyndon Johnson is elected to the presidency, a lot of these so-called "raclica and extrem- ists" are going to rally behid him like the toyal American citizens that they are. This may come as a surprise to their more vocal opposition, but it is so. Good citizens are no more likely to go sulk in a corner An the face o,f defeat th, an good Republicans are likely to desert a fine can- dictate who has been the victim of adverse popular opinion. These same Republicans would expect no less from their Democratic couerparts if, by some unlikely event, ,the Republican can- didate Should win the electiom. Perhaps this bit of philosophy will not solid- ify this corner to any gret degree with s-ome of this political compadres, but national loyal- ty should, in the final analysis, vrevail over party finity. And one more thing: I sincerely hope that Lyndyn Johnson becomes a truly great Amer- ican president after he is elected on his own merit. And if he isn't, I hope the Republicans lick the daylights out of him in 1968. By Jack Pierce Alma Carlyle of Bemerton.

Soil and water conervUon is the proper use and care of our basic resources. It means using these resources to pro- ctuce the reatest amounts of things mo needed, and at the same time protecting them so :they will not lose their pro- ductivene.s in the future. This seems to be a smple answer to a very complex problem. Who Cares? Con,servation is not just the farmer's problem alone. It is as important to the city nn as to the farmer, because soil an.d water provides both city and courtly people alike with the necessities and many of the luxuries of life. For nearly 200 million Americans, our soil and water provides three sqtmre meals a day, most of the clothing we wear, and the wood products in our homes. What happens to the basic re- sources is of importance to each of us. Our daily lives and our pocketbooks are a/fected by the kind and amount of con- servation we have or will apply for the price we pay as con- s u mers. So What? About half a million acres of good productive land is al- lowed to go down to ruin each year. This must be stopped; we c,nnot keep up our pres- ent high standard:s of living if we permit this to continue. 40 Years Ago 1924 Friends of State Senator W. J. Sutton, Republican, have made ,a stu<ly of tee needs of the Fourth dislct md feel Mr. Sutton's return to Olym- pia is vital because of pb- lems coming before the legis- lature. Woodward, Mrs. H. A.

She is survived by her husband and tvo sons, Rich- ard nd Howard, at the home near Chancy. Elaborate preparations are being made by students and faculty committees or the Normal school's f'rst ttarne- coming day, Ot. 25. The pro- gram will open Frid'ay at 6:45 with a community pep ally and welcome home bon$ire. Saturday morning f#om 10 to !1 will be registration hour for visitors. That afternoon at 2:30 the Normal Savages will meet the Ellembu'rg Normal foot- ball team for the fourth con- secutive year. The day's activ- ities will close with an all- school dance in the Normal auditorium at 8 o'clock. All stores and business houses will be closed from 2:30 to 4 for the 2ootball game. The 40-mifi tax limit bill ,ffich is to appear on the No- vember bollot is deceptive and: if this measure is made a law the people of Oheney may ex- pect higher taxes than at pres- ent. The city of Chancy is op- eratin, g on a 13-mill levy for its current expense, while the proposed measure permits Cheney to levy 'as ,high as 15 miRs or its current expense fund. It i a well-known fact that the state not operate under a 40-mill tax levy. This means, then, that the State must resort to other taxing measures such as the income tax, poll tax, sales tax, her gsoline tax and so forth. These additional taxes would be state-wide arid the people of Chancy would be caled upon to make up this sO,ate deficit besides paying cry taxes. which would not be lowered by this measure.

One motorist recently learned that it ,didn't. when the Supreme Court of his state ruled his pol- icy void.

Survivors are three daugers, Mrs. Edna Itarr and Mrs. Grace Fossum nf Cheney and Mrs. stroying the car. Refused To Pay The insurance compa.ny re- fused to pay, saying that the owner had made a false state- ment in the application, and that it would rat brave issued the policy, had the correct armyors been given. In holding the insurer not liable, the court held that the policy could be voided for three reasons: (1) If the state- merit was false amd made with intent to deceive; (2) ff the statement increased the risk and (3) if the fae statemen,t contributed to the loss. It was no excuse that the owner claimed the application was illed in by an agent, for there is a presumptio that the applicant read the applica,tion and understood what he signed. The questi,o_s were short and char 'a.n,d could be understood by the average person. The in- su'ed was clearly bound by the rots-statements which he sig- ed. Entitled To Truth No one likes to pay he sub- stantially higher rates for auto insurance when you have a maile driver under 25. Never- theless, the premiums are pro- port,oRal to the risks involved and the compames are entitled to the truth in the inswace a,pplicaU,n. Here the acvident occurred while the cr ws be- ing driven by a 19 yearld 'boy --the very sk which the com- pany, would not h.ave accepted if the application had disclosed the truth, or would have charg- ed ,a considerably hiher prem- ium to cover the increased risk.

Mill,ions of gallons of water are misused ov wasted by pelt lution each year. Our streams and rivers are filling with mud and debris. Our country- sides ,are being covered by 1,it-i tar that we h, ave thoughtlessly I tossed there. Much of the n,a- tire wildlife has been careless- ly disposed of yearly. Much of our timber resources have been wasted either through poor pl, anning while h, arvest-i ing or from loss by fires. Most floods have been caused by the loss of these trees in the wa,ter- shed. What Then? We now have a little more than 460 million acres of good cropland ,in the United States. This land is all that we will have to produce the food and fiber for our ever increasing population in years to come. The following generations are dependent on low we use the soil and water now and also provide for their future needs.
