i VOLUME NO. FIVE A TWIN SEEN ON THE STREETS BY F. H. MICHAELSON Yesterday we chanced to over- hear part of a conversation be- tween three strangers, who were in apperance but human debris, discussing the fact that Bingen's police officer, Henry Tiederman, had instructed their kind to re- frain from congregating on the streets. The strangers, we gath- ered, seemed to feel that they were not being treated with dignity suited to their "fetching up." And as we listened to that street conversation we were im- pressed with the fact that dur- ing these trying times Officer Tiederman, like all other ,peace officers, is presented with many puzzling conditions. This be- cause Bingen, being on a through highway, has become the ha, bitat of many nomads "who toil not and neither do they spi%" On the Other hand, there can "be no getting away from the fact there are millions of clean, honest peo- ple looking for employment. That there are approximately 20,000, 000 persons dependent upon some form of federal relief is evidence of this truth. Therefore, it is but just that all of us strive to be helpful to unfortunate persons who are making an honest effort to get along. To illustrate the point we are attempting to make we will men- tion that it is our practice to arrive at this office early each morningqand, as certain as the ann arises, there will be several straneers tackle us for the price of a "stack of wheats" or a loaf of bread. Some of these strang- ers are worthy. Others are merely human derelicts who have lost all sense of the responsibilit- ies of citizenship. Perhaps they, too. are deserving of some sym- pathynot because of-what thev are. but because of conditions which may have. through a per- iod of years, made them what they are. It will be recalle, that when the national financial crash came in 1929 quite a number of our "high financiers" who found their fortunes lost jumped from sky-scraper windows because they "couldn't take it." As one reflectg upon these sociological facts it does not seem surprising that there are increasing num- bers of men in the more lowly walks of life vho have, after long struggle to earn a living, lost (Continued on page 8) CASES BEFORE HARRIS Three court cases before ffustlce of the Peace Frank Harris in Bin- jzen the past month saw Edgar Speakerman of Spokane, fined $5 for speeding through town; Mrs. C.

Ross, Power Ad- ministrator at Bonneville Dam, was over an hour late for his scheduled talk before citizens of Western Kli- ckitat county at White Salmon on Tuesday, he did bring forth one out- standing topic in his short address, that is, "farmers of this section will be able to get power from the lines once the county-wide power district is formed." The above statement was long- looked-for in this county, and com- ing from the dam administrator via queries from his audience gave those farmers interested new hope for the future Farmers rot only will be able to get oow,r from the lines, but they will be able to get lines from the Plans were completed early last week for the big dance at B. Z. Corners in the "Logs" Pavilion, for the benefit of the Bingen Fire De- partment, it was announced to this newspaper by officials of the organ- ization. "One royal time is promised the "dancers", stated Orin Mason yester- day in Bingen. Funds from the dance will be used to make improvements on the de- partment euipment it was learned. -Are You Registered?- CAR IS RETURNED .... L. H.

INDIAN JOE HUNT 108 "There are over 156 men working o) the power lines between Bonne- Ville and Grand Coulee now," stated Ross, "and by the first of the year, ,we expect to have upwards of 2000". No Additional Taxes The forming of the power district, bringing the power to the county and the various communities will not add more taxes to the people, Ross told his audience. Outside of a two-mill levy at the outset, there will be no tax, vghile the new pro- ram for power use, if followed as other power districts, will pay for its cost out of operations, he stated. In Klickitat county, two sub-sta- tions will be put up, one in the east end and one in the west end of the county, he stated. The power district will not throw the county into debt, he announced to those present, and will be sold to the farmers and the small commun- ities at the same rate as the larger metropolitan centers, that is, $17.50 per kilowatt year. He continued, "once your power district is passed by the voters we will be glad to help your power commissioners and representatives in setting up a power distriJt that will give electricty to all." -Are You Registered?- LOOK FOR CCC ENROLLEES Beginning with the Oct. 1 CCC enrollment, a modified procedure for reuisitioning juniors has been ar- ranged by the department of labor.

Along the Concrete B SUN SALMON i NUMBER ONE LARGE CROWD TROUT LAKE VALLEY FAIR A fine day, a gay crowd and' a grand fair, was the verdict of some three hundred people who attended the Trout Lake Valley Fair last Fri- day at the school gym; the weather was practically perfect, plenty of sunshine but not too warm, with a light breeze; the crowd a good natur- ed, holiday-minded gathering; and the Fair a really good showing of Trout Lake valley products. A large number of animals were shown in the livestock division; and quite a lot of poultry and pets. The hay and grain table was literally buried in the numerous exhibits of first, second and third cuttings, and the various grains; the sunflowers were so large and tall it was quite inconvenient to display them indoor. o many fresh fruits and vege- tables came in' hat a second large table bad to be put up, and this not. withstanding the fact that it really was a poor year for gardens; this no doubt makes one wonder what would be the case if growing season was better than average. The dairy products table was the same as the previous year. There was the food and pastry tables in plenty; cut and potted flowers were nice; canned products were exhibited; a large number of quilts, rugs; many pieces of needlework and art display with antiques and novelties. The U. S. Forest Service arranged a fine exhibit, the ski club and girl scouts and 4-H club were represent- ed with exhibits. Wo of JBeil imtion were individual farm booths. Also were the spinning wheel which citizens en- joyed watching Mrs. Peterson and Mrs. Taggart spin. Old pictures caused much comment and laughter. -Are You Registered ?- A Filibaer A filibuster is the act of a mere. tmr of the legislati,e or a delibera- tive body who, in oppositlo. o ti proposed action oLthe majority, ob- structs or prevents action by the extreme use of dilatory tactics such as speakin merely to consume time. TO BE TAKEN WITH SALT.. In his notable address deliv- ered Monday Hitler, at consider- able length, declared to the worId that Germany's fighting forces on land and in the air, are invin- ci'ble. There can be no doubt that the German war machine is ef- ficent and that the German sol- dier is a courageous warrior-- just as the soldiers of nearly all other countries are courageous and effluent warriors if properly trained. But, it would appear, no nation is necessarily invinc- ble when it invites the hostility of the world. As we write this we are reminded that, not long ago, a fine fellow, Schmeling, was assumed to he invlncibleuntil a humble American Negro, Joe LouiS, landed a devestating left hook.

DIGEST OF THE NEWS BY F. H. MICFIAELSON THE WAR OUTLOOK In an attempt to compile an epitome of European war news of the week observations are ne- cessarily made more or less at random. This because the Eur- opean picture is changing so rapidly from day to day that a fact of yesterday may not be in- dicative of condition as of to- day. This comment is written on Thursday afternoon. At this time, it is revealed, ,representa- tives of Great Britian, France, Italy and Germany are in ses- stun in an eleventh-hour effort to prevent war. It is observed, however, that neither Russia nor Czechoslovakia, nations vi- tally interested more than all others, have not been called into the conference. Just what this means I do not pretend to know. But, it apoears as of today, the outlook for at least tempor- ary peace in EuroRe is better than at any time within recent weeks. It seems that the appeal for peace made by President Rooseveltand we suspect that the President depended largely upon Secretary Hullwas ef- fective. It will be recalled that the President appealed directly to Mussolini, asking him to play a leading part in a four-power conference dedicated to an ef- fort to preserve peace. Musso- lini, a vain, cocky but wry able man, accepted the suggestion and got busy. The result is that statesmen representing the four contending, powers are now in sesslon wffh at least some hope that adjustments may be reach- ed without reort to war. Certain it is that without Mussolini there is little reason to believe that Hitler will take a chance. Then too, late reoorts indicate that neither the German people nor leaders of the German mili- tary forces wholly approve of Hitler's hard-boiled ultimatums. It appears, in truth, that the Gernlan people, too, prefer peace to war: Just what the four-power conference, now in session, may bring forth there is no means of knowing. There are many intri- cate international European roblems awaiting solution probably far too many for one conference to solve with as- surance. But at least the people of the civilized world will find con- solation in the fact that as of today there is more reason to believe that sanity may prevaiI and European war avoided than at any time within the past sev- eral months. And, now, perhaps by to- morrow all we have written here may have been proved to have been entirely erroneous. If I could predict with assurance I would not be conducting a dinky newspaper in Bingen. Instead, I would .be a participant in the international conference being held today.
