It was still a frontier region and Easterners wondered at its weird ways Ernest Lister was elect- ed that year to be the eighth governor of the young, state, with a princely total of 97,261 votes. It was a period of problems and panaceas, some infantile, some strange. The governor, for example, recommended in his inaugural address that 25 legis- lators would be enough to run the state! It was in this atmosphere of ~youthful confusion and uncertainty that two Washington state prohibi- tion acts were born. One, the State Prohibition Act which prohibited the sale of liquor; the other, the State Prohibition Act which prohibited the redemp- tion of so-called "trading stamps" for merchand/se. Today, 45 years later, the first of these undemocratic laws has long since been repealed.. The state---like the nation--learned the folly of its ways and returned free- dom to the people. But the other prohibition act is still on the books. In fact, Washington continues today to be one of only three states in the nation which deprives its citizens of the advantages enjoyed by 45 of the 48 states. This is the 1913 statute which says that stamps Can be redeemed only [or cash. Citizens of Washington can- not redeem such stamps for any of 1,500 items ofnation- ally-known merchandise which Sperry & Hutchinson, for example, makes available to the citizens of 45 other states. They must take cash/ This antiquated prohibition act, now nearly half a' century old, is unfair to the citizens of this state for two reasons: 1st It Prohibits stamp=savers of Washington State from sharing in the benefits enjoyed by stamp savers in other states, and 2rid It Penalizes the citizens of Washington State be- cause the S & H stamps, for example, have a 50% greater value when redeemed ,for merchandise than when redeemed for cash. In other words, while Washington citizens are redeeming their stamps for $2.00 in cash, their neighbors in Or, egon, Idaho, California and 42 other states are redeeming their stamps for values of at least $3.00 in fine mer- chandise. Isn't it about time that this musty old prohibition act was repealed? Isn't it about time that stamp savers of Washington State enjoyed the same privileges and advantages en- joyed by. their fellow citizens of other states? Our present State Legislators, of course, did not create this legislation which discriminates against the citizens of the state, but they can correct it/ Their ob- jective and desire, after all, is to servo you and, since th ' % ey can t know how you feel about snch thmgs unless you tell then~, why not mention it in a p~st card, tele- phone call or the next time you see them.
