Vacation And Harvest
Yes, the busy season is here-the time when you
want to go places, and get things done on sched
ule. You can go places and start your harvest
without having your tire needs carefully checked,
but it is far more business like to have it done
before starting. Nothing is more disturbing to
one's travel pleasure than tire trouble, and if
your truck tires are in poor condition valuable
time is lost in the farmer's busiest period.
We have the answer to your tire problems-New Zenith
or Mobil Truck and Passenger Tires, and OK Welding
service for your used tires.

inausiry is growing faster than
power development. If congress
makes proposed drastic cuts in
appropriations for western self
sustaining power dams there
will be a serious curtailment in
western industrial development
with consequential employment
Appropriation cuts demanded
by senate subcommittee mem
bers from eastern states (nearly
all republicans) are obviously
sparked by eastern industrial
ists who observe rapid growing
competition in these parts.
When western governors went
to Washington, D. C, this month
they got more encouragement
in their restoration-of-power-funds
from far-sighted republi
can leaders outside of congress
than from congressmen. "We
will be selling out GOP strength
in the west if cuts in western
development funds are made,"
said a nationally famous repub
lican figure.
"We argued before the sub
committee for western develop
ment in its entirety an idea we
developed at the Seattle confer
ence of western governors," said
Governor Snell.
