EDITORIAL THROWING MONEY INTO THE RIVER Now that the flood is o ,er and we have the oppor- tunity to view the r ains, what have we learned? It seems to us the ruin and devastation, the incon- venience and the heartbreak over the destructive flood are the result of a lack of intelligent leadership, and co- operation on the part of all of us. - Ever since the first settler came to the Stillaguamish valley floods have swept down the valley, tearing at the banks and changing the river's course. Take a look at the formation of the valley and you will see the evidenc- es of this sort of thing, which has been going on for cen-; miles, j We may raise dikes, and the river will fill the chan-I ael and raise the river bed; we may dredge the mouth oft the river to give the Stanwoods drainage, but the river will silt up the dredged channels;we may rock the river banks, and the raging floods will sweep away the rock. The stream is straightened to relieve a threat to nearby farms, and ten more farms are destroyed farther down the river. This is the story of our so-called flood control up to the present time. The money we have spent on the river during the past half century is money literally thrown into the river. What then is the answer? Form a Stillaguamish Valley or a Snohomish County Flood Control district, including every parcel of prop- erty that will benefit through protection. Issue bonds and build, in two or three main tributaries of the main streams, delaying dams. We do not mean hydro-electric projects; we mean dams that will merely hold the ab- normal flow of these streams, thus retarding runoff sev- eral hours. It's fahtastic, stupendous, beyond our means. These are objections that will be raised. What we need is engineers who do not know the ....

Chapter obligation of Red Cross porch light on, and when the collection was made they were to turn off the light. All wa~ fine and dandy, except when the donator turned off the porch light, Rita Arnot and Betty Hu- ber managed to fall off the porch. Fortunately neither was hurt, but look at what could have happened, $550.00 collect- ed, $550.00 paid out for medical treatment for the collectors, plus the small item of loss of dignity. Naturally the big news this week are the floods that have been taking place. No need in my telling of the damage and loss of property that took place, you can read that in any old paper. The fire- men were called on to do some rescue work around Arlington, everything went smooth enough, only one of the firemen falling in the river, who else but Mick- ey. The Mick was hanging 'on to the history of our country. Most people think that the banks have a holiday on Lincoln's birthday, but that isn't true. Ac- tually that is the day they check all the pennies to be sure no one has slipped any in that don't have Lincoln's picture on them. Penneys make dollars you know. Lincoln must have been quite a personality. People still re- member his birthday after one hundred and forty-two years, and he didn't even have a !daughter that could, or couldn't (depending on your politics) sing. The other day of the week is St. Valentine's day. That is one day if you happen to forget on the day it falls, your wife won't let you forget for the rest of the year.
