Office: Park Avenue and Wheeler St., Parkland


Public hearing 1\<ill lw hdd Tuesday evening, July 12, at Parkland school, 8 p.rn., Oil a revised petition for transfer oi a portion of Tacoma school district No. 10 to the jurisdiction of Franklin Pierer; school district '10~. The me>eting has b,,cn called by the Pierce co1111t )' committee on school ciistnct organization, to hear views of the residents of the area affected. A former move, to transfer into Franklin Pierce district a much huger area of that portion of district 10 which lies outside the city li1nits of Tacoma, recently was stopped by objections of Larchmont residents. area is not included in the section to be transfened under the revised petition. The area now proposed to be transferred is all without the city limits of Tacoma and lies generally west of A street and between the south limit of Tacoma and the present no r t h boundary of Franklin Pierce district. A large proportion of the children of this area have been attending Parkland school because tra nsporta ti on provided to Parkland is better than to Tacoma schools. The c h i e f objection to change expressed by Larchmont residents at a hearing in their district some Wt'eks ago hinged on comparative provisions for transportation of elementary students. In their case, lr::rnspoiiation to Tacoma schools was considered superior. As described in the hearing order, issued June 22 by the county com· mittee, the area c.miered by the petition now being considered is bounded: On the south by Franklin Pierce school district No. 402, on the e:ist by A street (both sides of street included) to what was formerly known as Spooner street, east one-fourth mile to tbe end of Adolph Berger's property, i1orth to 99th street (formerly known as 98th street), west on the south side of that strf'et to Sam Hull's place, west along 99th strePt (on both sides of Pacific avenue) to· what was formerly known as Spooner street, west on both sidt's of that street to Patterson street, south along both sides of Patterson to B rad e strPet to the Frnnklin Pierce boundary. packages, a delightful lunch was served at tables wlwre each guest found little cradles arranged with tiny flowers, for favors.

HARVARD NEVIS Wm. K. Clark. ................... c................................................................... Editor Bill Gros.,gloss..................... ....... Advertising Mgr. A community newspaper for Midland, Parkland, Brookdale, and Spanaway. Published every Thursday by Beard Printing Co., P. 0. Box 797, Parkland, Washington. Telephone (;H.anite 7100. Entered as second-class matter October 3, 1945, at the post office at Parkland, \A/ashington, under the Act of March 3, 1879. SUBSCRIPTION RATES, By Mail: One yrar, $1.50; six months, $1.00

No Reprisals Recently, during active discussion of plans for study of factors favorable and unfavorable to incorporation of a city of Parkland, this newspaper offered its columns to those who might have views to express, one way or the other. It was thought and hoped that light might so be thrown upon more facets of the issue. So far, only one communic.ition bearing upon the matter has been received. More recently it has been indicated that the editor's rebuttal action to that communication may have discour:iged others who had thought to voice their views through these columns. If that be the case, let the editor now state that: he did not and does not intend to take issue with opinions expressed by readers in their letters. The editor regrets that a reply was necessary in the one instance, because the editorial integrity of this newspaper had been attacked. That integrity he feels he must defend vigorously. However.those who have opinions to make public on any issue need anticipate no reprisal from the editor merely because their views are in opposition to his. Opinions stand or fall on their own merits.

Incredibly Expensive Some weeks ago, Sen. Bert H~ckenlooper essayed .to prove "incredible mismanagement" in the affairs of the U. S. Atomic Energy commission, which he lays at the door of AEC Director David Lilienthal. Evidence of mismanagement he has since bared may. not seem "incredible" wi1C11,. viewed against the background of inefficiency general in our full-blossomed federal bureaucracy; but would most certainly be considered intolerable if occurring in any private enterprise. Extravagances, such as paying for schooling of rhose whose avowed communism automatically bars them from ever giving this nation service in return, Richland's multi-million dollar school building with its left-over stockpiles of flown-in lumber and other heavy materials, taxpayer plundering bus and garbage systems, have evoked caustic comment even from the Democratic membership of the Sen:ite committee hearing tbe charges. Whatever Sen. Hickenlooper's motive, he has shown that, as one Democrat said in effect, the AEC has demonstrated no desire whatsoever to watch the public's money in its operations. A few days ago, the AEC's lack of business sense was publicized before the committee in the writing of a scientist who earlier this year resigned his responsible position as director of pile technology at Hanford. Dr. C. W. J. Wende, the scientist, wrote: "I became convinced that one of the primary shortcomings of the commission set-up is that nowhere in it is there a hard knot of practical business sense of the kind that can effectively manage a program of industrial development. Such know-how appears to be alien to government agencies and must, of necessity, come from industry." As might be expected, scientist Wende seems not so much concerned with cost as with lack of accomplishment. From his complaint plus the evidence of extravagance, the conclusion is drawn that: We're paying streamliner fare for a ride on a milk train. -·-~
