"As a taxpayer you'll be interested to know," writes A.M. Tewksbury in the Oregon Voter Digest, "that the federal government now has 1,400 advisory com- missions and boards. They cost us (the taxpayer) $25,215,882 in 1972. A truly economy minded Administration should be able to eliminate a lot of this fat." "Go into the press agent business, young man, and you'll never lack for a job. "If you get caught in a corporate shuf- fie at the agency and find yourself out in the street, the government will always have work for you. "A current bit of evidence comes from the federal big thinkers who are planning to celebrate the 200th anniversary of the American Revolution. "They have a solid product to sell and three years remaining to getthe mes- ' ,sage out, and apparently they havd a whole .10t of money to spend frivolously. "One result, which arrived in our of- fice last week, is a Media Kit that appar- ently went out to every struggling week= ly in the nation and must have cost the taxpayer about five dollars a copy. "This is not one of those mimeograph- ed bulletins that clog the mail. It is a matched set of full-color brochures that come in their own enameled box tied with an elastic string. "Their message: The Bicentennial will be here in 1976. The media should do their best to give it publicity. "And sure enough, if you add 200 to 1776 you will discover that the Bicenten- nial Commission has its figures straight. "Even so, we can't escape the thought that the commission could find a more fitting way to get ready for the anniver- sary than sending out a few million dol- lars' worth of Media Kits." --Bainbridge Review "Government is the enemy of all de- cent and well-disposed men."--H.L. Mencken "As long as you've got to have an army you've got to have officers, so you might as well make the best of it. --Bill Mauldin "...ff I had the space, I could give you plenty of adverstons--starting with people who break their words and their promises, whether they're Presidents or .... I think the people who claim to be physically elevated by smoking... cigarettes are not only lying, but sell- ing out mighty cheap .... "--Kenneth Roberts "I TOLD YOU I WAS SICK"--Legend on hypochondriac' s tombstone "It is far better to know our own weaknesses and failings than to point out those of others. --Jawaharial Nehru "The greatest remedy for anger is delay."--Seneca "Wagner's music is better than it sounds.' '--Mark Twain "On Sir Stafford Cripps: 'There but for the grace of God, goes God."--Win- ston Churchill A 27 YEAR banking career will come to an end tomorrow, Friday, for Mrs Sylvia Boyd when she retires as head vault teller at Monroe Branch of Seattle First National Bank. Mrs. Boyd, wife of Snohomish Police Chief Clarence Boyd, began her career in 1946 with the Monroe branch of First National Bank of Everett :nd has since served with four managers including Frank Killien, Joe Brown, Harry McCloud and Robert Pollack, the present manager An informal receptionwillbe held at the bank all day Friday and friends are invited to stop by for coffee and cake --Staff Photo If you observe a bicycle with a car following slowly behind, ty- ing up traffic on Highway 2, be patient, they may be a team hired by the State Highway Department to conduct a bicycle route study between Everett and Spokane on the 288 mile highway. Seven teams were recently em- ployed by the highway department to study conditions such as grade percentages of hills, width of the highway shoulder, varying degrees of traffic congestion and any other obstacles bicyclists may encounter on various state routes. Highway Department engineers will use the observations and recom- mendations made by the bike sur- vey teams in planning immediate and future bicycle routes. Eventually the department plans to compile the notes in a compre- hensive state-wlde bicycle route map. The map will be published Spring, 1974. The bike team surveys and the map are being funded with state gasoline fund revenues. The High- way Commission allocated $8,400 for the survey and $2,500 for the publication of the bicycle map.

JULY 4: Indepen- dence Day Handicap at one mtle for three- year olds and upward Twenty-one year old date is Ramaloguewho for $7,500 added. Won Hugh Wales is cur- carried him to a win in 1972 by Red Wind rently the leading in the Baze Handicap with Tex Holltngs- Longacres Jockey (but at Yaktma. He has worth tn the irons. the lead changes rap- ridden in California at idly) says, "To win three tracks and lost Honor tuu ,HtoQtHf] nfc Thoroughbred races his "bug" (apprentice you have to have luck,allowance) in the Oak Several valley stu- skill and a good horse to ride." There is little doubt that he has skill and that the trainers con- sider him a good rid- er - consequently he is "up" on some of the best horses at Longacres. He rides at II0 and never has any battle with the scales and he can eat anything he wishes. Wales started in Montana at the urg- tng of a Junior high school pal who took him to the track and helped him get a job riding. Hugh puts it this way, "I could ride or was put on a horse almost before I could walk." He rode in "the b u s h e s" (minor tracks) for a year and finally broke his maid- en at Yaktma Meadows in '71 on Mr. L. L. who was trained by Jim Penney for the six furlong claiming race. He saysthebest horse he has ridden to "it's better to know us and not need us, than to need us and not know us." 701 Firs! Street Sn0homl=h, WA Dial 568-4126 (Home Owned) Tree Meet at Santa Anita. He is a con- tract rider for the P e n n e y Farm at Naches. "As long as I can make it as a rider," he says, "I plan to ride but I have it in my long range plans to buy my own spread (ranch) and be atratn- er or breeder." We have no doubt that he will be successful as both a trainer and a rider.

Hanford No. 2 Is now under construction anddue on line with another 1100 MW in 1977. WPPSS Nuclear Project No. 3, also 1100 MW, was recently announced to be built near Satsop In Grays Harbor County for completion in 1981. And preliminary plans have been Initiated for Project No. 4 scheduled for 1984. began operating its first unit In 1971, fired up the second half in 1972; and could relieve much of our present shortage when its entire 1400 MW capacity can be fully utilized.
