Tolk Things Over With Court
Olio f the n.ast irr,iori.nt demons in recent
joars Is tu be hrid in this county nrxt Tuesday.
II involves the approval of a budget which calls
for funds fir in c-xecss of the six per cent lim
itation and for that reason should be thoroughly
understood by iho taxpayer before entering the
b,(Oth to mark his ballot.
There is one source for obtaining information
ar.d that is the county court. Time is growing
slioit, yet in all fairness all who will vote next
Tuesday should understand the requirements
which n.ade it necessary for the court and the
budget committee to include extensively in
creased estimates in the budget.
It is quite certain that the attitude so preval
ent in recent years of "getting things done while
there is plenty of money" did not direct the bud
gcleers in their work. They were confronted with
a situation in which they had no choice. The
county's operation expense has grown along with
the rest of the country and pre-war budgets can
not be stretched to meet post-war costs. Anyone
who has bought machinery, hired labor or in any
other manner transacted business these past few
years knows that a normal basis no longer exists.
There are signs here and there that a readjust
ment is setting in. but it is rot known how far it
will move toward a normal level or how long it
will take to attain th -t objective, if ever. The
county's business must go on. even if not as
usual, and in order to meet the increased cost of
operation there must be more funds.
Still on the Job
The financial statement of the Morrow county
committee of the Blue Mountain Council found
elsewhere in this issue of the Gazette Times
proves conclusively that our people have not
forgotten the boys in the veterans hospital at
Walla Walla. The good work canied on during
the war years has not been neglected during the
past year and there is assurance that the current
fiscal year will see no let-up in the seriee to
thse unfortunate young men.
While the local committee has been on the
job in raising funds and obtaining gifts, two
Walla Walla women. Mrs. Ralph Keser and Mrs. !
Kalph Knudscn, serving as this county s Cray
ladies, have worked faithfully in carrying out i
the activities for which the funds were acquired, j
Their great service is deeply appreciated as well i
by those for whom they are serving as by those
served. One has but to read the report to appre
ciate the interest maintained by the local com
mittee, so capably headed throughout by Mrs.
Kalph Thompson (the Ralphs seem to have an
edge on high spots in the council! and ably as
sisted by Mrs. Ben Anderson, co-chairman, and
Mrs. Laurence Eecket, secretary-treasurer. So
long as these faithful workers remain at the
helm the hospitalized veterans have the assur
ance of not being neglected.
Let's Take A Holiday
Proposal by the Chamber of Commerce to close
up the town July 4 and 5 in order to give the
tired business man and the hired help a three
day vacation should meet with the approval of
all who find themselves not in a position to
enjoy a longer holiday. If all competitive houses
will close for the two days there will be no un
easiness on the part of some that the other
fellows are profiting at their expense. All of us
can take a little rest, go fishing, camping, take
in the Lexington celebration, or maybe mow the
lawn and tidy up the place a little bit.
A number of business houses will close for the
two days regardless of the decision of the others.
It should be unanimous and so advertised to the
trading area to give people a chance to lay in
their holiday needs the day before the 4th.
Let's get into the spirit of the occasion and
really close up for a couple of days.
STATE BUYS BRAINS
Highway traffic accidents are
mi a sharp up-eurve and the
Mate has decided to do some
thing about it besides talking.
The legislative interim commit
tee highway development
and revenue this week engaged
the automotive safely founda
tion of Washington, D. C, to
make a survey and report on the
tate s highway system. The
foundation is a non-profit or-
inization working in many
states including California and
Washington. The committee re-
liiestod the state highway com
mission to make a budget for
xpenses including extra work
'o be performed by the commis
mission. It is estimated expen
ditures will be under $75,000.
R. II. Baldock, state highway
engineer, strongly endorsed the
foundation. Study by highly
rained technicians will be im
partial with emphasis on coun
ty roads, main highways and
future military roads.

ed. MILK DELIVERY COSTS
When a hearing was under
way at the Capitol recently on
price control of milk to custom
ers we came near to being
thrown out at least some dis
tributors glared the intent. All
we said was, "You should see
how they distribute milk in a
town in California about the
same size as Salem. Producers
truck their milk to stations in
town. Boys distribute it as they
do newspapers. They load up
for a block or more, distribute
any brand to any nome or store
and eliminate costly duplica
tion ot delivery service, ine
saving goes to the customer and
milk is three cents a quart
cheaper than here."
"Where is this place?" asked
a frustrated distributor. It was
time to say, "There is no such
place, but how do you like the
