Facts from the past gleaned from the Moses Lake Herald, Columbia Basin Herald and The Neppel Record by Cheryl (Driggs) Elkins:

From the Columbia Basin Herald on Aug. 22, 1941:

Red Cross issues certificates

Clyde Greenlee, Ephrata, first aid chairman of the Grant County Red Cross Chapter, last week issued 36 certificates to pupils who successfully completed first aid courses in Grant County.

Eighteen standard certificates go to pupils of Rev. William Grader of Moses Lake, 18 standards cards to members of Alfred Schraggís class at Soap Lake and 20 junior certificates to boys and girls of Carolyn Schinkís class at Quincy.

Dennis note: OK, now something isnít quite right here. The article says 36 certificates were issued. Fine, but 18 to pupils of Rev. Grader and 18 to Alfredís class and 20 more for Quincy students equals 56. Well, anyway, it is great to have so many students qualified in first aid skills.

Export programs being continued

The U.S. Department of Agriculture has announced the continuation into 1941-42 of wheat flour export program and the wheat export program. These Programs are designed to encourage the exportation of flour manufactured from U.S. wheat and of wheat produced in this country.

Under the continued wheat flour export program, payments at rates announced from day to day will be made in connection with flour exported from continental United States ports to the Philippine Islands, the Virgin Islands and to any country or place in the Americas and adjacent islands, except Puerto Rico, Alaska and the Canal Zone and to islands east of the Americas lying in or west of 40 degrees west longitude.

Under the wheat export program exporters will bid for wheat for export to such foreign countries as may be designated by the Federal Surplus Commodities Corporation.

Exempt from tax

Almost one third of the total area of the state of Washington is owned by the federal government, and therefore exempt from taxation. Since local government subsists almost entirely on the property tax, this poses a serious problem which may even mean finally the inability of local self-government to exist in the face of widening federal encroachment.

Our three-year, five-point program

From the Moses Lake Herald publisher and editor

1: Cement curbs and sidewalks. 2: Banking institution for Moses Lake. 3: Adequate hospital facilities. 4: City park and recreation center. 5: More and better farm-to-market roads.
