News Editor We are thankful... This week most of us will take on a bird, rich and belly-gratifying, into a being previously laced with warmth. Thanksgiving is a time to acknowledge divine favor. And that we do- -those of us who are endowed with the wonders of this bountiful andfruit- ful valley. But so help us, too many are away, on another soil, fighting in a war that goes on and on, a war repugnant to us all. Our thanksgiving should be to these men. Theirs is not the safety and the affluence of our day to day lives. They fight, they hurt, and too many times they die. When we think of them, especially those soldiers of foot who to us will always be the greatest of all fighting men, we cannot help but plea: Let them win. Let them taste the victory of an Easy Red Omaha beachhead, the mag- nificence of a Paris free, the silence of gunnery, the freedom of fear and a sleep of exhaustion. The conference table fails. It is a sham. It is mockery. It is a blasphemous wrong. School Revote (From Page l) Resident Succumbs :;r a Utd vote next year higher paid teachers."

The district holds an option on the property, located about 2 1/2 miles east of Snohomlsh on U. S. Highway 2, until December 31. The pur- chase price has been disclosed as $76,500. The medical spokesman further noted that doc- tors urged compliance with all regulations which would allow operation of the present facility as a nursing home by the district or through pri- vate operation. He added that although doctors left the date of a new bond issue election up to the commis- sioners, they felt it was inadvisable to hold a Joint election with the Monroe School District. Budgeted in October for updating the hospital to meet fire marshal requirements, necessary for continued operation as either a hospital or nursing home, was the amount of $30,000. '!That was all we could budget but the actual cost mt,ht run as high as $200,000," Godard said. When you start working in an old build- ing, breaking through four levels of floors and ceilings to install sprinkling systems, you can get involved tn a lot of hidden expenses." Godard said that before the resolution motion was presented to commissioners they were asked by the medical staff what they intended to do about the $3 million bond issue to build a new Valley General Hospital which was defeated by voters in September and November. Said Godard: "Commissioners countered that tt depended on what the doctors intended to do, with Commis- sion Chairman Don Broughton explaining that they needed a commitment from the medical staff indicating whether or not the doctors would continue to support the hospital in light of their statement before the election implying they would resign if the bond issue failed. "Broughton told the doctors that without their support the hospital could not continue to function and provide the kind of service it had in the past. secretarteSo" Robert Hines of Route I voiced the opinion that "perhaps some good could come from an April closure of our schools. It would point up the problem of inadequate state financing of schools," he asserted. Skykomish Resident Succumbs Funeral services for Skykomlsh resident, Henry W. Kelm, 85, who died November 19 tn a Seattle hospital, were held here Saturday. Mr. Kelm was born May 7, 1883, in Minne- sota. He had lived in Skykomish for the past 42 years.
