--By ARTHUR BRISBANE-~-I The Pres.:dent's Radio Voice What of U. S. Workmen Wanted, a Very Deep Hole Whose Gold Is It? Millions who heard President Roosevelt talking to the country last week will congratulate him on the possession of a "perfect radio voice,'" every word distinct, every idea clear, a voice carrying distinction. The radio, putting tlle President in direct touch with tho~e who elected him, m a President's greatest asset, and de- fense. Gre,.t Britain "g;ves approval to the tariff armistice." The assumphon is that United States tariffs are to be lowered and everybody made happy "by ending economic warfare among nations." Ending economic warfare sounds pleasant. But what about the inter- national differences in wages and manufactming costs and different standards of living? Tearing down tariff walls to obh- gate foreign workmen and manutac- turers who need our markets, and at the same time "revising the war debts" to oblige nations that bor- rowed from us, would be pleasant for foreigners, less pleasant for Am- ericans.

He can not have that if he must compete in wages with Asiatics or the Europeans getting twenty-fie2 cents to one dollar a day. Americans should buy from American worker~, spend the money in the United States where they get it. He who advocates bringing down the tariff, to put Am- erican workers on a par with twen- ty-five workers in Asia, or one dollar workers in Europe, is not a friends VOLUME 17, NUMBER 37 ISSAQUAH, KING CO., WASH., THURSDAY MAY 18, 1933 SUBSCRIPTION $1.50 PER YEAR ISSAQUAH BANK HAS OPENING PRIVILEGES W ~ odr 2: :e 't:e ~ pFe : 7o rON[ Y::'~ :uhls: iness on Sanction of Depositors. A piece of good news reaching Is- saquah this morning is that the state bank examiner has given the local bank permission to resume normal banking activities, with a forty-five per cent reservation on deposits. To make this effective seventy-five per cent of the depositors will be re- quired to sign waivers to that amount of their deposits. The waivers are go- ing out today and as soon as the re- quired percentage has been returned normal business will be resumed, so the opening date is now up to the de- positors.
