Shoppers will find Goldendale stores are filled with fine stocks of nationally advertised merchandise at prices that compare favor- ably with those of metropolitan stores. The Christmas shopping season now at its height. We sug- gest that you, the people of this district, make Goldendale your shopping headquarters. Before you go out of town and out of the coun,ty to shop, give your Goldendale merchants a fair test. We believe you'll find they are eqttipped to meet your requirements in selection, qtmlity and price, o Use Plenty Of Those Christmas Seals AMERICANS ARE CRUSADERS at heart. In the past we h ve crusaded for the weak, the under-privileged, and the down- trodden. Some of the best traditions of this great nation of ours are bound up in these humanitarian crusades. America's crusades against disease :and the causes for diseas have accomplished gratifying results. One of the most'success u campaigns iagainst disease in America is that conducted by the National Tuberculosis Association. This organization, now in the midst of its ann al Christmas seal sale drive to raise funds for further humanitarian work, has ' " " e and conducting a winning fight against the world s deadbeat pr - ventable disease---tuberculosis. Through its program of education, e:amination and treatment the Tuberculosis Association each year has reduced the death toll taken by tuberculosis. These steady gains in the control of the deadlydisease have accounted for a tremendous saving in both national happiness and national wealth. Today, because of the Tuberculosis Association, every child of school .age in Klickitat county receives a periodic skin-test to determine whether or not tuberculosis infection is present in his body. If this skin-test shows tuberculosis infection, the individual then receives a thorough chest examination with an X-ray of the lungs if necessary. The examination is free and the X-ray is made available at a greatly reduced ch arge, through the National Tuberculosis Association. In addition to the actual work of skin-testing mad clinical ex- amin ation, the national, state and local Tuberculosis associations carry on an effective and highly worthwhile educational program. This program carried on through the media of talks, exhibits,_and free educatiorml literature has had a great part in teaching Americans how to prevent tuberculosis infection and how to treat and arrest that infection when it does occur. All this great service is made possible through the money individual Americans, rich and poor alike, contribute to the na- tional and local associations through the Christmas seal sale drive. This month the Klickitat County Tuberculosis League is conduct- ing its annual drive for funds. Hundreds of individuals in this county during the past two weeks have received envelopes filled with Christmas seals With these seals there is a letter from the lo(ml Tuberculosis League ex- plaining its work and suggesting th at you keep the enclosed seals and return your contribution of $1.00 or more to the League to be used in the furtherance of their great work. If you have not already returned your contribution do so to- day. And as you mail out Christmas letters and packages this holiday season use plenty of those seals with the three happy children and dauble-barred cross. Those seals are a badge of good citizenship and humanitarianism wherever they appear. O County P. U. D. Not Out Of Step FROM PUBLIC STATEMENTS made this week by spokes- men for the Klickitat county public utility district it is evident Oregon press accounts of the disagreement between Washington commissioners and Bonneville Administration officials were exag- gerated. According to statements made by Klickitat county P. U. D. commissioners appearing on page one of this week's Sentinel, Washington utility districts in this area are willing to cooperate with Bonneville authorities to the fullest extent. Now that RFC funds are available for financing public utility district purchases of private companies the Klickitat commissioners declare they are anxious to have the federal government act as their negotiator and financial agent. This attitude on the part of the county P. U. D. commissioners should be r suring news to Klickitat residents. Many persons, including beth friends and foes of public power, have feared that Klickitat county's P. U. D. beard members were on the point of following the lead taken by Grays Harbor county Rnd entering on an expensive acquisition program financed through Gas C. Meyers and his Wall Street organization. The experiences of Washington counties that have worked through Mr. Meyers and his organization apparently were nee too bJappy. At any rate Dr. Paul J. Raver, Bonneville administrator, in several public statements of recent date has warned county utility districts of the many dangers involved in such dealings. It is clearly evident float the majority of the people of Klickit- at county favor public ownership of power producing and distribut- ing systems. The vote favoring the creation of our present utility district in 1938 and the still more overwhelming vote in the 1940 election against initiative measure designed to limit the actions of such districts iudicates that Klickitat county people want public power. Now that public ownership of power is apparently near at hand in this county all of us, both those who favored and those who opposed the P. U. D., should strive to obtain the most economical and efficient system. In view of the feder d government's interest in public power, rural electrification and industrisd development here in the Pacific Northwest, Klickitat county would be foolish not to cooperate with the Bonneville adminis ation. As the situation appears to this newspaper the Klicldtat coun- ty public utility district has everything to gain through coopera- tion with Bonneville. For that reason we feel the local P. U. D. commissioners have made the only sensible decision. Leah Lodge N~>. 22, elected the way, M. of F.; I. C. Darland, P.
