RADCLIFFE PUBLISHERS RONALD RICHARDSON - EDITOR ENTERED AT GOLDENDALE, WASHINGTON, POSTOFFICE EVERY THURSDAY, AS SECOND CLASS MAIL MATTER SUBSCRIPTION RATE, $2 PER YEAR OFFICIAL NEWSPAPER OF GOLDENDALE & KLICKITAT COUNTY MEMBER WASHINGTON NEWSPAPER PUBLISHERS' ASSOCIATION, INC., AND NATIONAL EDITORIAL ASSOCIATION .~. -- - -- -- = Z JU LA L ~ L[I [L Jill ~- Help The Swimming ect Along WHILE EVERYONE SEEMS to agree the Lions club spon- sored swimming project to provide free transportation for all local school children to and from Blockhouse is a fine idea, it is going to take more than praise to pay the bill. Since no charges are made to the children for either the transportation or the swimming pool tickets, the sponsors must meet certain operating expenses. These expenses, even with the cooperation of the Blockhouse pool management, the school district and the Works Projects Ad- ministration, will probably amount to more than $200 for the summer. Compared to the cost of operation of a municipal pool this figure is small. Divided among Goldendale's more than 400 families the cost would amount to less than 50c per family. A certain amount of the money has already been raised through substantial private contributions. The sponsors of the swimming project do not wish to collect from parents who feel they cannot afford to aid in this worthy program. Children of all parents, those who aid as well as those who do not, are urged to take advantage of the swimming project. It is hoped sufficient funds to carry out the project will be forthcoming voluntarily. Surely if the people of Goldendale can w ngly contribttte $244.00 in two days for relief work in Europe, as they did in the recent Red Cross drive, they can afford to invest a like amount in the health and happiness of the children of their own community. Don't delay. Turn in your contribution to the Lions club swimming project fund today. Whether it's a dime or a dollar it will be appreciated. 0 America Had Real Problems TROUBLED AND UNCERTAIN as world conditions are to- day we in America, on this, the one hundred and sixty-fourth anni- versary of our nation's independence, are facing neither the first nor by any means the most serious crisis in our national history. Those of us who are inclined tto become hysterical with alarm over present conditions would do well to read again America's Declaration of Independence. This declaration severed 13 thinly pop ated, poor, unorganized American colonies fro m the powerful and thoroughly dictatorial British empire. Regardless of what our metropolitan newspapers may head- line and our campaigning statesmen may say, the situation facing those Colonial p triots 164 years ago was many times more critical than America's position today can possibly be.

Stegman Tells Of R.E.A. Program Centerville, Washington, June 19, 1940. E I)ITOR GOLI)ENI)ALE SENTINEL: I have prepared the following arti- cle, and hope you will give it space in your paper. I feel that it is time some of the facts concerning the R. E. A. were brought before the people. The Rural ~Electrification Admin- istration was brought into being by act of congress, some six years ago. It started with an annual appropria. teen of forty million dollars. Its pur- pose, aside from furnishing use for labor and materials, at a time when unemployment was worse th~n now, was to bring electric service into re- mote areas that were too thinly peopled to show a profit for the pri. vats companies. It was a success from the start, and now there are hundreds of R. E. A. groups, oper- ating, or being formed. Ours in Ktickitat county is one of these. The R. E. A. does not enter the field as an operating body, it is purely a lending agency. It loans money on 20 to 25 year terms, in our case prob- ably 25 year, at the low rate of 2.73 per cent. It is a direct federal loan, money appropriated by congress each year. After a project is approved, and the money granted, the district has no interest payments to make until 30 months later. From this time, until the end of the fifth year, o~ly the interest is asked, and from then to the end of the seventh year, the amortization charges gradually reach their full size This scheme allows the district ample time to get their revenue built up, as it takes several years for the customers to get full equipment for best use. The R. E. A. asks a mortgage on the line, and the revenues and on nothing more, and will not lo~n to a district unless they ~re sure that the venture will pay out. Users Pay Anyone can plainly see that the consumers of energy in the district, alone are paying for the system, and then only as users, not as taxpayers. This should clear away many doubts ,~nd fears tbat have been expressed by many, especially the heavy tax. payers. The job now before us, is to get the county signup completed at the earliest possible date. To date we have over 450 applications on" file. We will have over 600 when the drive is complete. After the signup, the subscribers are dotted on a le.rge map, and the It. E. A. engineers use this as a picture to determine if the proposal is feasible, also to deter- mine how many miles of line, and where to build them. Many have said to me: "I will wait 'tel the line is in here." I very positively do know tha.t some of these will wait a lot longer before they get "juice." The engineers will try to reach every one on the map, and if you are not on the: map, and your neighbor is, he will: get the call. It will be, of course, impossible to serve everyone, but if you sign you have a chance, and if it cannot be worked out, the $5.00 meter deposit will be refunded. Also, if the engineers find that the custom- er will be more than a thouse, nd feet from the line, they will correspond with him, and tell him what the charge will be, and if the price is too high, or the patron, for any reason wishes to withdraw, his deposit will be refunded. No Obligations No one need fear that they are taking a cha,nce of getting involved ed in a position that will have an unhappy ending. The basic difference between this set up, as I, have out. lined it, and the private operators, is this: R. E. A. exists only to serve, they exist for profit. The Commissioners axe very anxi- ous to get this application off to Washington, early in July. The mon- ey will be available then, but when it is exhausted, the later applications will have to wait until next year. So it behooves everyone to get in and help. this thing ~long. Volunteer committees are in the field in White Salmon, Goldendale, l~oosevelt and Btckleton, getting sign. ers, and collecting the deposits. Any who have signed previously may send their deposit to the writer, and a receipt will be sent promptly. Some have wondered what becomes of these deposit~. They are depleted with the County Treasurer, in the R. E. A. Meter Deposit Fund, .and are h~d ~s a guarantee that the bills will be paid, for two months at least. The field workers do not get the $5 as a commission. In fact I know of four different field men who advanc- ed deposits out of their own pocket to help along. The rates, tentative, and subject to approval by R. E.. A. are as fol- lows: Minimum, $2.50, 40 kwh. ~ext 60, kwh, at 4c. rs Past ] J. W. Tilden returned Thursday from Kansas, where he shipped a car.

All excess of 1000 kwh per month at three quarters of a cent. Concerns All If a user is located beyond a thous_ and feet from the line he will be asked to beer an additional month- ly charge. This will be added to the $2.50, and will be 1~ per cent each month for five years, of the cost of the excess line. He will get electri- city for every cent paid, however. The county_wide application is in two parts, the one for Project A, (:Glenwood-Trout Lake) and Project B, the rest of the county. The ap- plication for the A group was sent off six months ego, it was delayed, first by the fact that no money was available, and second by the loss of some legal papers. These obstacles have both been met and overcome, and we are expecting action very soon, ~s the signup is complete. It is to the interest of everyone to help this thing along. Whatever concerns 600 families in one county, should lye of interest to the rest of the citizens. We all need electric service. If we are to keep our American stand_ : ard of living, we must keep going forward, we should look homewardi rather than across the sea. We should equip ourselves with every tool and device ~t our command, to make life easier and better. We should join the United States, and cooperate with those who already have put their shoulder to the wheel. Sincerely, HENRY STEGMAN, Co-ordinator. Klickitat Co. P. U. D.
