Everybody Celebrates This Saturday evening, residents of the south end area . . . are mv1ted to mspect the modern ::ind complete quarters of. . ~ . the new branch bank at Parkland of the Nallonal Bank of , • . • Washington, before the branch opens its doors for busmess · , _,_ · . Monday morning. The open house Saturday even mg will be , . . . the banks way of mark mg completion of the months of preparation leading to its final establishment in our community. But, the bank is not alone in having cause to celebrate the event. It is an event that holds meaning for all residents of this area. IL marks successful culmination of long months of effort by many of our res1den ts, also. ~ Addressing th: local .Kiwanis club, t:vo weeks ;igo, J. IC Ewart, assistant v1ce-pres1dent of the National Bank of Washington, stated: "I give credit for this bank to residents of Parkland area." Mr. Ewart has been in close touch with all developments leading to opening of the bank here this week end. He knows personally, and remarked on, the "aggressiveness" and "persistence" with which merchants of this area battled to secure establishment of a bank here. Why did our residents so much desii·e a local bank? There are many reasons for their persistence. Foremost is the fact that another important service is provided our residents. As available services of an area are increased, its desirability increases proportionally. Property values are enhanced. l\1ore families and more businesses are attracted to it: providing in turn still more services, additional attractions. The area becomes better equipped to provide the conditions for modern living. Also important, to both bank and bank patrons, is that banking service can be provided on a friendlier basis when rendered by neighbors with full knowledge of local conditions. Breaking down of the impersonal relationships so often unavoidable in dealings with a large, centrally located establishment makes doing business at the bank more pleasantjust as it's more pleasant to deal with your local· neighbor storekeeper than with the professionally courteous bu·t insincerely interested clerk met in the emporia of a metropolitan center. Mr. Ewart summed up the advantages of this relationship nicely when he said: Banking brought to the people attains a local accent. The local accent is, in many ways, more important than the convenience of local service. The foregoing are among the reasons why our citizens strove valiantly and successfully for a bank here-and why we all join whole-heartedly in the .bank's celebration, voicing our sincere wish for pleasurable and prospering careers here for ·the new bank; its manager and our old neighbor, Arthur Swindland; his assistant manager and our new neighbor, Robert Snowdrn; and all members of their staff.

trict championship and a berth in the state championship tournament to be held in Seattle later this month. The team has passed its first hurdle in the race for the national Junior baseball crown with very little local support outside the membership of the sponsoring post. Tbis despite the fact that its home games this year were played right here, on the Pacific Lutheran college diamond, made available to it by the college. Now, the team needs and has earned overdue backing from rliis comm unity. A champion Junior Baseball team is a chamber of commerce's dream come true. Time is short to outfit the club properly for its trip to Seattle and perhaps all the way to the Littie World Series at Omaha later this suminer. So far, the Parkland Legion post bas carried the load all alone. Now it needs help to do the needed job of outfitting. It should be a pleasure £0 everyone of this community to help, and very little help is all that's needed if everyone will share. Over 16,000 teams, represnting over a million boys, started this season of Legion-sponsored play in cities and towns all over the land in the race for the national crown. The Legion reams offer wholesome competition and real opportunity to boys· participating. Lou Boudreau, Ted Williams, Stan Musial and Hal Newhouser are just a few of the big leaguers who got their start with an American Legion sponsored team. These teams are recognized assets of their communities. Tacoma, Puyallup. or any other town in this district would cheerfully give freely ·to have the champion team. Parkland has it-without effort. It's Parkland's mm now, to give the team whole-hearted support in return.

Students now in training who are terested in completing thei1' work in the elementary or secondary field only will be eligible for certification on one or the other level. According to the action taken by the board, public and pdvate colleges will be permitted to give train· ing on both levels. In support of the new general certificate the following comments were made: "It is belie;,ed that the needs of youth will be served best ),y providing tea ch e rs who are equipped to teach at either level. Continuous improvement of the educational program as a whole, from the kindergarten through the twelfth grade, should result when there is an increasing number of teachers in the field whose teacher education program has prepared them to work with both elementary and secondary school students."

1. Even before you call, you can start getting the most for your money. It's a good idea to make a list of the things you want to talk about. A few handy notes can help make sure you won't think of somethingyou really wanted to say-after you hang up. Experienced long dis· tance users keep paper and pencil at the tele· phone and make notes while they're talking, too.

2. When you place your call, you can save time all around if you give the information to your long distance operator this way: First, the name of town you're calling... then, the number if you know it,' or the address. (Good idea to keep a list of the out-of-town numbers you call most frequently.) Next, if it's a person call, give the name of the one you want to talk with. The operator will rhen ask your name and number. 4. Wise .use of the. telephone - either local or long distance-helps you get the greatest value from it. And service is constantly growing more valuable. A local call is still just a few -~--!~~
