The scrap 'books and Official records which contain the history of the Arlington Fire Department tell an in- teresting story. It is a story of service. As is tlle ease with most such organizations the earl)" history deals with the struggle to combat fire with inade- quate equipment. The story discloses that much of the equipment was earned through hard work ill sponsoring dances, celebrations, carnivals, etc. The story is replete with humorous incidents, but all ,too often it deals with tragedy. The story also discloses that the department has been led by men who possessed a will to perfect an organiza- tion of men and equipment capable of protecting their town against fire--such men as Chiefs George Murphy, .Chas. J. Warren, Chas. H. Tracy, all of whom are now departed. The department now is colnposed mostly of young men, who are devoting time to study of the science of fire fighting as developed in later years. They are men, like "their predecessors, who are imbued with a desira to serve, ,they have good, modern equipment and are efficiently led. In their forty-eighth anniversary ,observance they will pay tribute to the founders of the department.

It is suggested that donors keep in mind the need for -providing blood for local use, so that in emergencies a A Word From The Governor By Arthur B. Langlie ASK THE FIRST MAN yol ,'neet tomorrow what he thinks about taxes and he'll say they're too high. Then ask him what he thinks should be done about them and he'll fire right back: Cut 'em! That's the way everybody feels about taxes. With such a concerted aver- sion to this gov- ernmental d e- Gay. Langlie vice " t h a t de- prives every wage earner and business man of a sizable por- tion of his income, it would ap- pear to be the easiest thing in the world for a legislature to go through a session without public !opposition to an economy pro- :gram. Yet, in spite of the fact that taxes have reached the most burdensome point in our history, the 33rd legislature which wound up its ~essions at midnight on Thursday, Mar. 12, went through one of tl'~. most strenuous ef-i forts ever ~rkperienced by a Wash- ington lawmaking body to hold spending within anticipated in- come. IT HAS BEEN ESTIMATED that out of every dollar he earns, a Washington citizen pays 35 cents in taxes. Of this tax slice, 27 cents goes to the fed. eral government and 8 cents to our state and local governments. That 8 cents pays most costs of local governments and also the state services in the fields of education, public welfare, health and hospitals, highways, public safety, public institutions, salar- ies and wages, interest on the state's $40 million general fund debt and a $.250 million bonded indebtedness,'plus other govern- mental costs. The rapid expansion of our population---43% irt the past 12 years---is making it difficult to give the people all the services they want out of that eight (8) cents. Someone may suggest that another cent or two ought to take care of our increased needs without hurting too much. That would be correct if it were simp- ly a matter of increasing the tax take from 8 to 10 cents; but what a two-cent increase really means is an increase from 35 to 37 cents. There is a decided differ- ence. STRANGELY ENOUGH, t h e real pressure *elt by the legisla- tors was not to hold expenditures within our present income, but to spend MORE than our present tax sources will produce in the next two years. It sounds like the paradox of paradoxes that a public which says in unison "taxes are too high, cut 'em" should be the same public that provided the very preSSure groups which would-have thrown the state into a deficit of 180 to 200 million dol- lars if the majority of our legis- lators had yielded to their many forceful, unrelenting demands. The general fund budget final- ly adopted for the next two years amounts to about $470 million. It would have been about 650 million---perhaps easily several millions more--if we had failed to hold together the slim major- ity which was determined to stay within our anticipated income.
