In a brief report on the three- day state county commissioners convention in Yakima, the board noted one of the problems discussed was solid waste disposal.

Latin countries seek change Latin American countries are in a hemisphere which has been dominated for 400 years by one class of people not about to change while more and more people in the lower classes seek change. To understand all the ramifications of these facts of life is to better understand the Latin American countries, feels Calvert Anderson, speaker for Walla Walla Kiwanis club Monday at the Memorial Golf Clubhouse. Two attitudes have been and are a part of the background there, Anderson said. "Take what you can and get out" has long been the dominant as has been a "me first" attitude with all. Heavy financial support for unrest in native populations is being given by Red China. Anderson said. The speaker was for eight years stationed in South America in the Extension training program. Board okays new drive-in A new Red Steer drive-in restaurant will be constructed at the corner of Wilbur and Tacoma Street, one block south of Isaacs, with a conditional use permit granted by Monday by the City Board of Adjustment.

In other action the board granted a two and one-half foot variance to Terry Tucker. 240 Stone Street, to build a six-foot fence on his property line adjoining Howard. There was no opposition to the request. A request by David Austin. 506 Sheridan Road, for a one and one-half foot variance on a fence was denied. Austin wished to build the fence on his property line adjoining Howard. The board cited insufficient topographical variance as rea- son for denying the request.

Air West has two flights departing in this time period, however they say neither plane would circle the area of town in which you live. This being harvest time, it is possible that a crop duster is responsible. We spoke to the people at the local crop dusting firm, and they admitted this possibility, however they stated that such could not possibly be a daily occurrence. This season being an extremely busy one, they have'had a great deal of dusting. As they spend only a small amount of time in each field, it is impossible that they would fly daily at that particular time in your vicinity. They asked that anyone bothered by the noise of their aircraft please bear with them: this is a seasonal necessity, and the disturbance will soon be over.

If these driv- ers don't have a chance when something goes wrong, what chance do every day drivers have on highways when driv- ing at breakneck speed? High speed causes blood baths on every holiday and par- ticularly en holiday week ends. Every year we see more victims buried, hopes and lives shattered in sorrowing families all over the country. This shameful execution MUST stop. Continually, we have pitiful predictions on highway deaths___Remember this: It isn't always the other fellow who gets it. The predictions CAN INCLUDE YOU!
