~-By ARTHUR BRISBANE---- Hear Tosuke Yarnasaki Would Canada Trade? Gold Standard Also Gone Why Live So Long? VOLUME 17, NUMBER 40 ISSAQUAH, KING CO., WASH., THURSDAY, JUNE 8, 1933 SUBSCRIPTION $1.50 PER YEAR UNIDENTIFIED MAN PROBABLE SUICIDE For a change from news not usual- ly too gay, and for the strictly Amel- 'can point of view, it might interest Man Seen on Beach at Ten o'Clock you to read an inside story of some ........... , , _ .._. . _ . . . . I ~aturuay ,~zgnt; awe ~ails for conultlons In America, prlnLe(loy Mr. Tosuke Yamasaki "on the Eng-I Help Heard as He Disappears. lish editorial page of Kashu Mainichi, otherwise The Japan-California News, published in Los Angeles. If it oc- Curs to you ,,hat Mr. Yamasaki's Eng- lish i:~ not absolutely perfect, ask yourself how long it would take you to learn to write Japanese as well as he writes English. Mr. Yamasaki speaks under the heading "On Getting Stung." He says: "I grieve when I look back at the time I saw my steady kissing my boss, [ my best friend, just to hold her job. Stunned and stung, but just to keep on earning my buck, I was forced by sheer politeness to say nothing. I hurried and told an acquaintance of mine; he laughed and said that he would be careful--and now his for- mer mate is the boss's wife. I "Indeed, we live in a world ofI amazement, debauchery, trickery andI broken confidence, in which the mass-I es of the highest, to the lowest o~-~ ders are completely subdued and ex-] ploited by con-men and con-games.' It is astonishing to- know that a third of our great American public has, ih some way or other, suffered fro}n land, oil, mining or stock booms; that the second third is now being boom- ed successfully by means of fraudu- lent literature and advertising, by thousands of quacks, loan sharks,I ~ury-fixers, and 9ounter jumpers, and] that the remaining third is in the i arms of gold diggers." Mr. Yamasaki has found words to express what many have thought since 1929. $ $ * The Hen. Gus Kash, in the Ohio Legislature, has interesting "trades" in mind. He would have Uncle Sam trade all of Alaska for "the islands south of the center of the St. Law- rence," and he would have England cancel her war debt to us and give us CantT~a instead of cash. Last Saturday night at about ten o'clock an unknown man is supposed to have committed suicide by jump- ing into Lake Sammamish at the mouth of Issaquah Creek. lie was seen by T. B. Impy and L. H. Smart, the latter suggesting he go back to town before it got too dark, the man having said he came from Issaquah. He wentup the creek and presently the two heard a shot. Following the sound they found the man sitting~ down resting. Smart again suggested he leave, but he declined and then asked how he could cross the creek. He finally waded it and went toward the lake. Shortly after they heard two calls for help. They rushed to the lake, but due to darkness coming on, could distin- guish nothing in the lake or on the shore. They reported the case to the sheriff's office and deputies came out Sunday morning and searched the premises but found nothing. They. stated they would drag the lake for Oxford Movement Centennary cele- bration to be held in London from July 9 to 16. Reverend Pritchard, ac- companied by his brother, the ReD. E. C. R. Pritchard of Seattle and the latter's wife and daughter, left Se- attle Sunday for Quebec, from where i they will sail for England. They hope to return early in August. GLORIA DAY LEWIS WILL PRESENT PUPILS JUNE 9 The public is cordially invited to l attend a complimentary pianoforte I recital Friday evening, June 9, at 18:00 o'clock, at the high school. A group of interesting numbers will be played by these young tal- ented musicians: Rae Castagno, Le- land Shobert, Jimmie Gregory, Char- lotte Willis, Carol Newinger, Ethel Johnson, Gladys Adams, Helen Han- son, Evelyn Lewis, Lucille Buhl and Lela Davies. Can you imagine the enthusiasm in Canada when that news spreads, considering that Canada has in the ground more than enough gold ~o pay that debt, to say nothing of sil- ver, nickel, iron and the Lord knows what. As for Alaska, there is no know- ing how much wealth is hidden aw~ there. It would, however, be a good idea if Canada would annex the United States, and then let Mexico annex them both, and run the whole thing on a "majority vote" basis. Twenty-eight Republicans joined Democrats in a vote, 283 to 57, in favor of the theory that this coun- try can get along without the gold standard. We have some billions of gold in the treasury so that we are not quite "off the gold basis." No other country has as much, and if some sloppy, sentimental congress,on- al or other authority does not hand Assisting will be two violin selec- over our gold to Europe, we shall tions by Rhodie Olson and Albert keep that "gold rabbit's foot" to Kuhn, pupils of Albert Miller. prove our "gold respectability." ------------~------ At least 122,000,000 out of 123,- BIRTH AT NORTH BEND 000,000 Americans have got along A baby boy was born to Mr. and without gold thus far.

For a good many years it has been the policy of the Association to retire a block of its stock on each July for in this way stockholders are kept current and in the hands of active producer members. The Association has always paid an annual 8% div- idend and the fact that they are now retiring in July of 1933 stock issued in 1929 which is still worth one hun- dred cents on the dollar is a real tribute to the soundness of the poul- try industry of this state and illus- trates the security of the producer's investment in his own marketing as- sociation. i a call for retirement Of all common and preferred stock issued during the year 1929, effective July 1, 1933. This stock will be called at par plus the usual dividend of 4% for the six- month period from January let to June 80th. The common stock certificates, coming in as called, total 12,444 certificates amounting to $388,255, and the preferred totals 7,588 shares, or an amount of $269,847, or a total of 20,032 certificates called amount- ing to $608,072. Adding the 4% die. idend of $24,322.88 for the six- months' period makes a grand total of $632,39A.88, which will be dis- t~tbuted to stockholders of the Am. social,on at this time. Community Playfield Will Soon Have A Gymnasium One of the most active spots in Issaquah this week is the Playfield, where work has now actively start- ed on the building of a gymnasium. The main floor of the building will be 60x80 feet. Cement has been pour- ed for the entire foundation walls and pillars through the center and the sills are being laid. Lumber taken from the grand- stands and fences removed from the grounds is to be used in the build- ing, with the top flooring about the ISSAQUAH CRAFT IS SAILING OPEN SEAS AS CREW MUTINIES Three New Councilors Fail to Qualify; Claims Un- paid; Case Gets Appoint- ment as City Clerk.

His action wa~ approved by tl~e board with the uncicrstanding that the Standard was to have preference when the prices were the same. By this time a crowd had assembled and the meeting was transferred to a larger room, where visitors were in- vited to bring up any desired subject. Mr. Holt of Preston offered to sell the board fifteen cords of wood, cut i by the unemployed on their own time, and the board accepted the lot at $2.90 per cord. This wood will be used at the Preston school, ReD. S.
