{ThisW By ARTHUR BRISBANE Quick Action Days VOLUME 17, NUMBER 30 Let's Get All the Gold A Mad World, and Tired I NUMBER OF RELIEF Canned Blood for Sale WORK CREW RETURN Under President Roosevelt come days of "quick action." The beer bill is a beer law now, everything sign- ed and ready, including int'ernal rev- enue stamps and many new beer glasses. Fourteen - million dollars' worth of new buildings, for brewers, are now under way in New York City alone. You may drink all the beer that is good for you not later than April 7 in all of the dry states, and you may get it ,properly made, for five cents a glass. A wise young woman asked con- cerning President Roosevelt: "If he does so much right away, what, in heaven's name, will he find to do through all the rest of the four years?" No need to worry about that yet. On the first day after the recent S|ock Exchange opening, stocks went up "kiting." Next day they went up again, but less wildly. The third day they went down a little. One great change has come over the country. The tail used to wag the dog, that tail being Wall Street. Now the dog, otherwise Washington, D. C., is wagging the tail. This start- ed the tail at first, but it is getting used to it. A President who does something new every day amazes at first, but the human mind longs instinctively for a boss, and Wall Street is human. $ $ * President Roosevelt's campaign against hoarding gold and gold cex- tificates has produced excellent re- sults. This column, as you may have noticed, has for several years urged an embargo on gold to prevent European countries drawing our gold out as fast as we get. May the government from now on be as severe and effective in its at- titude toward gold-grabbing foreign nations as it is toward its own na- tionals. All the gold in this country should stay here. And other gold as it comes should sink into that gold reserve and never come out, Eventually this country would have all the monetary gold on earth, and that presumably would settle the "gold basis" ques- tion. We should have about eleven billion dollars earning no interest, but at least the army of unimagin- ative "gold bugs" and "golden calf worshippers" would be happy. The world is paying for its big TO WORK AT SCHOOL Pleased With Bonuses Be- ing Earned and Allow- ance for Shoes for Shoes On 45c-an-Hour Basis. nation and take a vote on return. ing to work, with the voters free from intimidation. A large crowd gathered at the Grange, composed of those favoring and opposing the welfare relief set- up. Among those opposing were many from Renton and Seattle, sev- eral of whom have been in evidence as organizers during the entire dis- turbance. There were nea~ly thirty wor.ker, who attended the meeting. They heard a talk by Web Vinnedge oz North Bend, commissioner in charge of this district, who answered a num- ber of questions from the workers. After thorough discussion, a motion to return to work carried unam- mously. As a result twenty-six men re- peared for work Monday morning and were accomodated on the school grounds, where most of them learned of "happy disappointments" await- ing them. During the holiday Mr. Brown came over from Renton, In- spected the application cards and raised the amounts available for the men, especially benefitting those with large families. For instance, some men scheduled for $4.00 were raised $9.00;$5.50 to $8.00; $4.00 to $7.00. Some of the men thu~ marked are among those returning to work. A number of smaller rais- es were made. This action was taken by Mr. Brown, awaiting the visit oi the inspector of homes. Tuesday twenty-seven men earned vouchers, and an additional break came their way through the issu- ance of vouchers for shoes for the workers themselves and their chil- dren in school who were in heed or shoes. Seventeen pairs were issued. Those of the unemployed who have war in strange, serious ways De-Jprefused to return to work, met last pression, lack of money, insane gamb-levening and decided to remain out.

JIG SA AND PHILOSOPHY OF LIFE Analogism Carried Through in Very Entertaining Manner At Kiwann Meeting by Reverend Anderson. Rev. S. E. Anderson was the speaker at Kiwanis yesterday noon, his subject being "Jig-Saw Philoso- phy." He likened the solution of a jig-saw puzzle picture to the picture one builds as we go through this life. As there are right and wrong sides to picture puzzle pieces, so there are good and bad sides to the philosophy of life. He named seven cases of opposites which he thought Now Affiliated With Most Powerful Club West Of To Have Influence TEAM VOTES TO PLAY INDEPENDENT (lAMES At the regular meeting of the Fire Department Monday evening ~1: Mississippi River; Meet- ing Was Representative. was decided to organize a basebaI1 team, to be sponsored by the de- partment.

Millions believe that Congress, supposed to stake laws, should step aside and let one man President Roosevelt, do everything on the ground that the avearge el- ected official is more or less an idiot, lazy and dishonest. The British alone retain some confidence in their ability to govern themselves, as well as a great deal of confidence in their ability to man- ageothers, including this bewildered nation.

I i i FIVE CENT BASIS County Welfare Board De- cides on Change of Policy In-Payment Of Workers At Tuesday Meeting. a meeting of the Advisory Committee of the King County Wel- fare Board held at Renton last Tus- day, a policy was adopted by which all work done in repayment for re- lief will be on a basis of forty-five cents an hour. Heretofore, the welfare board has avoided using any scale of wages to determine the amount of work that might be done in connection with the relief vouchers, preferring rather to have the applicant work out the relief on the basis of one-half day per week for each member of his family. There "has been lack of under- standing of this method, so that, as a result of studies in progress du~. ing the past month, the board has now definitely agreed that the pree- ent county scale of forty-five cents an hour will be used as a working (Continued on page 3) / MAURICE J.

The board of direcors of School i Dist ict No. 212 held their first meet- "! ing since the change in personnel of the boards, effeeted by the recent school election, which gave the post, tion formerly occupied by W. J. ' Lewis Jr. to C. W. Peters. Notwithstanding the fact that the reor,mnization meeting is considered as st,~ictly executive, a number of re- presentatives of the Taxpayers' League were pr~,sent, and on motion were invited to remain to listen to the financial information concerning the school year of 1933-34, as pre- sented by Superintendent Thomas. As the first step in reorganization, Ronald Johnson, member from Pres- ton, was made president of the board on motion of J. W. Gregory, secom: ed by C. W. Peters.

Expected to Increase Supplies --I Truck Crop Acreages Cut Some. Demand for commercial vegetables in Washington during 1933 will probably be consideably reduced be- cause of increased gardening around towns, and gardening by unemployed and those employed part time. Pro- duction of commercial truck crops iin 1982 was increased 3% over that ~of 1931 in the United States and prices declines1 16% to a point where i many salable vegetables were left In fields. The value of commercial truck crops in 1932 declined 35% below the average for the preceding four years in the United States but declined only 21% in Washington. The 1932 acreage of asparagus in Washington was the largest on record and produced the peak crop of 202,- 000 crates. Preliminary estimates place the 1933 acreage at 2,000 acres as compared with 2,060 last year. The nation's strawberry acreage was 26% greater in 1932 than In 1931 and preliminary estimates for 1933 indicates a further increase of 201,970 for this year. The nation's cabbage crop of 1935: was the smallest since 1928, but prices averaged only slightly higher than in 1931, when they were the lowest in recent years.
