For Those We Don,t See (Contributed Editorial)

Now that the days are getting longer, you will hear children playing outside until long after dinner time. You can probably remember wbcn you would play baseball late in the evening until darkness or your mother's voice called you in. But did you ever stop to think of the children in your neighborhood who aren't playing outside ... not ever? Those who sit by the window or watch the time go by on a clock ·in a dark bedroom . . . and arc never quite like "the other kids"? Because there are children in your own neighborhood who can't walk ... because there are adults confined to their beds . · ]'111g 1·11 nesses or acc1"d ents . . . t h c IYierce .

POPULATION IMPORTANT A determining factor in consideration of any proposal for city incorporation is the population density of the area to be incorporated, as city revenues arc dependent to a large deg-rec upon population. Statccollcctcd revenues are shared with cities upon per capita basis and these funds arc the major revenue source ·for many cities. Some towns operate entirely upon them. In any case, they arc second only to direct millage for city supporJ;. Density of population is important because city expenditures are directly proportional to the extent of the area which must be served. A compact area with relatil'cly dense population and high properly valuation is the most advanlageous for incorporation. Population of an area considered for incorpor:ition may he quite accurately estimated in a number of ways-where actual cPns11s fig11r<'R do not break down in a man~er applicable to the proposed city area or arc not recent enough for use. Some of these bases for estimating population are: ]-Number of homes by actual count (to be multiplied by tlw established ratio of persons per home for the area); 2-Numbcr of water meters (multiplied by ratio of number of water users to 1ncter); 3-Numbcr of electric services (rnultiplied by r;itio of pnsons tu servjce); 4-Numhcr of registered voters (multiplied hy ratio of persons w voter); 5-Numbcr of telephones (multiplied by ratio of people per tclephone). An average of the results obtained by use of all the above bases may be expected to yield a usable estimate of population for c.imsidnation of effects of ii1corporation. .

REVENUE EXPERIENCE OF SOME THIRD CLASS CITIES, FOR COMPARISON After a population estimate has bef'n obtained, it may be valuable to examine the annual revenues of cities of comparable class, currently operating successfully. An average of incomes for 18 third class cities of Washing·ton (taken from the state auditor's report for 194-6) shows the following results: A \'tragc pupulation-2,526; average assessed valuation-$954,900; average license reccipts-$3,562; average permit sales rcccipts-$358; average occupation tax rcceipts-$1,260; average receipts from fines--~ $2,740; total-$7 ,920. Average receipts from state-shared taxes, etc.-$21,87 5.16. Property tax (maximum 15 mills) if levied in full on average assessed valuation-$14-,323.50; grand total-$++,118.66, per year. The cities (with indivdual populations) used in the above compu.tations arc: Scdro Woolley, 3,300_; Omak, 2,918; Colfax, 3,000; Snohomish, 3,050; Enumclaw, 3,000; Kent, 3,000; Colville, 2,650; Montesano, 2,242; Cle Elum, 2,230; Sumner, 2,+00; Medical Lakr, 2,250; South Bend, 1,800; Marysville, 1,907; Cheney, 1,938; Chelan, 2,000; Prosser, 2,500; Burlington, 1,900; Port Orchard, 3,,lfJO.

"Northw1·st poultryrnen may think they ha\'c had feed supply trouble in the past, but it was nothing to what European poultrymen arc facin,g now," states Eric Stromquist, Triangle Milling compan)' i·xtr·nsion field man n·cr·ntly rr-turni·d from Europe. One of the few Northwest delegates to the recent 8th Annual World's Poultry congress hdd at Copenhagen, Dcnrnarl<, Stromquist was the only representati\'e from a wcst<'rn milling company. U. S. poultrymen are •·specially fortunate in the assistance they receive from the government, state agricultural colleges and feed manu-' fact11r!'rs. Assistance in foreign countries is vrry Jimitr·d, Stromquist reports. Although American commcrcial poultrynwn arr by far the most efficient in the world, they can still improve their operations by applying the latest scientific and practical information made available by the USDA, college experiment stations and research departments of feed ma11ufacturcrs. Denmark Jc ads the European countries in poultry production, according to Stromquist. Their poultry methods and marketing systems D \NIEL COPE arc very well developed, with a large ' _, _, .
