VOL. 4, NO. 22

l\1cctings every second and fourth Friday at 8:00 p.rn. in the Sunshine Hall With the basketball schedule at tlw halfway mark, the post team has shown much improvement over tht, gang that started the season, We are still not a championship team but the boys have a lot of fun and we have a lot of fun watching them. The boys play because they love to play and while it is always nice to win games the fact that they lose some of them docs not overshadow the fact that we arc in this league to provide an outlet for pcntup enthusiasm and have fun. The first half saw Parkland in last place, with one win against nine losses:md take it from your scribe some opponents that we met were flashy boys who have a lot of time to practice and work their defenses and offenses. We have to be content with two games a week with no sessions in between. The second half showing is quite a little more encouraging, with Parkland in fifth place, one win against three losses -··getting better as time goes by.

Let's Not Be Hooked The empty lunch pail, hollow spectre much favored by those who would see dispassionate reasoning overturned and overwhelmed in the confusion of fomented panic, is again out of the closet. The time-worn device is currently featured .

-not primary. Sponsors of the leg1slat1on, residents of the I Washington shore of the river, have too little love for the Astoria packers to go to their aid except that a much greater issue is concerned. The proposed sanctuary legislation, already approved by the Washington Senate and now reported favorably to the House floor, is drafted to continue the very existence of the salmon and with it the salt Water sports fishing of the entire Pacific Northwest. Little is actually known of the salt water years of the salmon. Too little to say definitely that the gallant king driving at the Puget Sound angler's lure first felt life in the headwaters of the Cowlitz. But, consider: I-Salmon runs that once teemed in streams flowing to Puget S-ound already have given way to thickening human settlement and its accompanying industry. Tl1ey are no longer. adequate to spawn even the now greatly diminished stock of sporting fish in Sound waters. 2-The Cowlitz is the lasr major salmon spawning stream in the Pacific Northwest states.

Is it then any remote conclusion to say that proposed destruction of the Cowlitz spawning area imperils the salmon fishing of this entire region? The stake is this region's foremost recreational attraction, an asset of many millions of dollars value. Sports and commercial fishermen are not alone in believing the hazard too grear to chance, the prospective gain too slight for the long odds involved. Those who are insistent that the Cowlitz be barricaded say we can have both increased power and fish. We can, indeed. But· only if we are willing to wait an extra two or three years for the power. We cannot have both dams and fish in the same river. What is the appeal of those who would dam the Cowlitz? They say we need more electric energy. Granted. They say the Cowlitz is the quickest and cheapest place for Tacoma to get more hydro-electric power. Very likely true. But, they also say that it will take two years to get that power from the Cowlitz and that in five years it will be available from other sources whether the Cowlitz is dammed or not. In other words, we are offered this choice: We can have more power two years hence and lose our fish for evermore, or we can wait just another three years and have both the power we wantand fish.

And, if we really cannot wait five years for power, there remain other sources than hydro-electric dams. Diesel or steam plants can deliver added energy in less than two years. They would deliver more costly kilowatts, yes. But if the emergency is really acute, they would suffice for the five-year interim. Also, what of the potential energy source at Richland. Tbe production of plutonium there results in immense quantities of heat energy now wasted, actually causing a disposal problem. Turning that energy to use waits on development of a practical means ·of utilization. Considering the pace of recent atomic development, must we believe no,. solution can be found before five years pass?

diesel locomotives. This is sheer waste -a "make-work" program which would mean fewer improvements and higher costs-for YOU! Hailroads use modern diesel locomotives because they arn one of the means of giving faster, better service to you. Two men compose the crew of a diesel. They occupy a clean, comfortable cab at the front. The engineer handles the throttle. The fireman sits and watches the track ahead. With no coal to shovel, he has practically nothing else to do. No Benefit To You Now the leaders of the Brotherhood of Locomotive Engineers and the Brotherhood of Locomotive Firemen and Enginemen want to use the diesel locomotive as a means of forcing a feather-bedding scheme on the railroads. The extra men they propose to add to the diesel crews are not needed. There is no work for them. The union leaders are fighting among themselves about which union should furnish these extra, needless men. The Brotherhood of Locomotive Engineers have even threatened a strike. You ma v notl1e<1ted in this di!:lpute of these two unions, but you would be vitally concerned if these groups succeed in putting through this feather-bedding scheme, because it would mean a slowing up of the improvement program of the railroads-of which the diesel is the outstanding symbol. Diesel crews are among the highest paid

railroad emp!oyes-real aristocrats of labor! Their pay is high by any standard. Granting of these demands, therefore, would mean that the railroads would be paying out millions in unearned wages to those in.the very highest pay brackets. We'd Like To Spend This Money On Yon You know how much the diesel has meant to you in increased speed, comfort and convenience. The railroads have many more of them on order for even greater improvement in service to you. But needless drains of money, such as this present demand of the unions for needless men on diesels, reduce the ability of the railroads to spend money on better service for you. Proud as the railroads are of the diesel, it is only a small part of their improvement program. Since the War, literally billions of dollars have been spent on improvement of






tracks and stations, on new passenger and fr~ight cars, as well as on diesel locomotives, an"Cl on the many other less conspicuous details of railroading that contribute to improved service. 1''eather-Beclcling Means Less Service To You But brazen feather-bedding schemes like the one now proposed would, if successful, divert large sums of money from Ot.Jt present improvement programs. Even worse, they make improvements like the diesel worthless, by making the cost of their operation prohibitive. These demands are against YOUU interests -,--as well as those of the railroads. They are schemes to "make work". Nejther you nor the railroads should be forced to pay such a penalty for progress. That's why the railroads are resisting these "make work" demands to the lai;t ditch-and why they are telling you abou~ them.
