Ignorance of the laws is not ad— mitted as an excuse any more than motive; and the sentence for breaches is true now as it was ages ago: “The soul that sinneth it shall die.” ——Sir Lauder Brunton. “ll INITIATIVE RACKETEERS We are now approaching what might well be termed the season of initiatives. Already one has been received proposing a chain store taxation bill but was return-g ed because the sponsors failed to send in the required filing fee. A P. U. D. bill has been accepted, making the law governing these utility districts more drastic ant: preventing excessive taxation. But there is another class of initiatives which we feel every paper in the state should warn their readers against, as it is de— veloping iiito lucrative “racket- eering.” Two groups work togeth« er, the pros and cons. One group will develop an idea for legisla- ‘tion which will find a certain group willing to contribute from ten cents to ten dollars for its support. The other racketeer will go out and agitate and raise money to fight the measure, rais— ing money the same way. All the way from a few hundred to tens of thousands of dollars are snag- ged during campaign years thru this type of racketeering. A sponsor of this sort recently visited a radio station in Seattle. where he formerly lived. In recent K‘PURE RAW MILK l AND CREAM . Phone 2-F-4 MORNING DELIVERIES Issaquah Valley Dairy ,._.. DR.

Without going into tiresome statistics, it looks as though a voyage from the tip of Alaska to the shores of the allied Soviet re- publics were' less of an undertak- ing than a trip the length of Lake Superior. A fleet of large and seaworthy shuttle ferries plying between Russia and Alaska might be able to cause a great deal of trouble. When Congress parcels out the defense coin, perhaps it would be well to earmark a generous ap- propriation for Alaska, which, after all, is just as much a part 01 the United States as Iowa or New Jersey. ——‘-——1l THAT NEUTRAL ZONE In view ,of the. current contro- versy over the attempt of “the Americas” to establish a three hundred mile neutrality zone, it is of interest to note that the rea- son for the three miles being the distance over which a nation has jurisdiction regarding coastal wa— ters, is because at the time this international law was established, three miles was the longest range of any nation’s largest guns, and therefore the limit to which they could enforce their laws. From this reasoning one might infer that the new limit might well be' cut down some two hundred and seventy-five miles that‘ we may be in a better position to pa- trol that limit. ll .

CEMENT IS WASHINGTON INDUSTRY l ll C I. 11 d d E Photo: Washington State Progress Commission and Washington Newspaper Publishers’Association Although not generally recognized as one of Washington’s Products, quality cement is manufactured in several parts of the state. Here is the Olympic Portland Cement Co. plant at Bellingham, which produces 900,000 barrels of cement annually, employs about 125 men. Its prin- cipal market is Alaska and western Washington, the product being used in all types of construction, including dams, bridges and road building. S HE IS AN AMERICAN He is an American. He hears an airplane overhead, and if he looks up at all does so in curiosity, neither in fear nor in the hope of seeing a prolt’ector. His wife goes marketing, and her purchases are limited by‘hcr needs, her tastes, her budget, but not by decree. He homes home of an evening through streets which are well lighted, not dimly in blue. He reads his newspaper and knows that what it says is not con- cocted by a bureau, but an honest, untrhmmeled effort to present the truth. He has never had a. gas mask on. He has never been in a bombproof shelter. His military training, and R.0.T.C. course in college, he took be- cause it excused him from the gym course, and it was not com— .‘ fig; He belongs to such fraternal organizations and clubs as desired. He adheres to a political party to the extent that he desires— the dominant one, if that be his choice, but with the,disltinct reser- vation that he may criticize! any of its policies with all the vigor which to him seems proper—any others as his convictions dictate, even, if it be his decision, one which holds that the them-y of gov- ernment of the country is wrong and should be scrapped. He does not believe, if his party is out of power, that the only pulsory. way in which it can come into power is through a bloody revolution. He converses with friends, even with chance abquaintances, ex- pressing freely his opinion on any subject, without fear. He does not expect his mail to be: opened between posting and receipt, nor his telephone to be tapped. He changes his place of dwelling, and does not report so doing to the police. He has not registered with the police. He carries an. identification card only in case he should be the, victim of a traffic accident. He thinks of his neighbors across intérnntionfil borders of those to the north as though they were across a State Iinev, rather than as foreigners—offline to" the south more as strangers since they speak a. language different from his, and with. the knowledge that there are now matters of difference between. his government and theirs, but of neither with an expectancy of war. He worships GOD in the fashion of his choice, wlithout lat. His children are with him in his home, neither removed to a placé of greater safety, if young, nor, if older, ordered ready to serve the State with sacrifice of life or limb. \ He has his problems, his troubles, his uncertainties, but all oth- ers are not overshadowed by the immincnce of bhttle and sudden death. ‘ f He should struggle to preserve his Ame‘ricunism with its price- less privileges.
