Nor does this highway stop at Arlington, for the plans are to carry it on north to the Canadian border. With the State of Washington growing at a rapid rate, and a great increase in traffic, it is wise, on the O part of the State Highway authorities, to give attention to an alternate north-south highway, for it is obvious that even with the proposed improvements on Highway] 99,.the funneling of all traffic into one artery of travell , merely increases the traffic hazards and congestion. Then, too, the connecting links between the mainl highways will have the advantage of giving a more di-I," meet route to any of the important cities of the area f0r[ residents residing east of the present Highway 99, or will give those who desire to avoid the cities the option to do so. Now that the $65,000,000 bond money is available for the construction work on Highway 99, it should be passible to push the completion of other important high- O ways, including l-A, and it is hoped that the next step :to 'ard co.mpletion of this project, the letting of the con- ract from Lake Stevens to Arlington, will be taken in the near future [READERS' FORUM n Some latitude is allowed in | contributions published in ]] this column, as being ex- | pressive of the individual | opinions of the author.

This is just not true. We realize that their demands for wages are more than justified. Even if they gain their full demands, they will still have something less than a living wage. You may be sure the working people support them to the limit. ~ ,~ We do not b~less strikebreak- er~ We have found that they work during strikes for better etmditions, weakening the strlk. ers, and do everything to per- suade other workers to do like- wise. However, we have never known one of them to reject the gains made during a strike. They are right there when something is to be added---provided they ;get it without any sacrifice. That these strikebreakers were of any assistance during the two emergencies cited, is a de- batable matter. Provision had been made by the Company and Union involved to adequately Lhandle all emergencies with su- ~'visory employees. This has v.,,,~
