ON SECOND THOUGHT
LET THEM PLAY.
Prosecuting Attorney Baker has
nounced in no uncertain language
that he will not permit playing of
cards for trade checks in card rooms
at Cascade Locks. In our judgment
the prosecutor is over-zealous. W ork
ers employed on Bonneville dam are
going to play cards if they want to,
and if they are not permitted to play
in Hood River county, they will play
in Multnomah county, and across the
river in Skamania county, Washing
ton. There is a noticeable absence of
gambling in Cascade Locks, and we
do not believe the town wants open
gambling. But we do believe the pub
lic recognizes the necessity for re
creation, that it realizes men must
have some amusements and pleasures.
If the workers are not allowed to sit
in public places and play cards for
pastime they will go elsewhere and
gamble for money. This subject is
one that demands attention. Cascade
Locks wants the good will and trade
of the dam employes. To win and
hold this trade it must provide the
workers and their families with clean,
