C CARPENTER -- FRANK MARSH L C. CARPENTER Editor & Mgr Ensered as 2rid Class'matter: in "the'Post Office at'Arlington, Wash- ington, under the act of March 3, 1879. EDITORIAL McCARTHYISM We think most of us, at times, are irked by Sen. Mc- Carthy and his interrogation tactics. We have a feeling that tile individual freedom, of which we boast, and which is the all-important factor in democracy, is being violated by a sort of inquisition that is repulsive to our American independent spi.rit. Is there another way that subversives can be "smoked out" and their activities curtailed? I,s it pos- sible to go ,mrril51 on our f, la)i, ignoring the "b: ng from within tactics of tlmse w o ould destroy d oc- racy, and substitute for it the iron rule of self-appointed dictators ? The record does not look good We recall the activities of the Dies committee, which preceded Sen. McCarthy's sub-committee by several years In fact it was active about the time that l)emocracy was being "sold down the river" by trusted employees in our government, but public opinion of the Dies "inquisi- tion" discouraged the Congressman. Whether he would have uncovered the traitors within our government at that time, had his committee continued, we do not know. But we mu, st face some distasteful facts now: Stalin, some time before his death, announced that Russia had the Atom iBomt). A couple of weeks ago Mal- inkove, suceess()r h) Stalin, announced Russia had the hydrogen bomb. It is not contended that Russia could never have dis- covered thesecrets of these destructive weapons through their own scientific research. It is a known fact, however, that traitors to democracy's cause sold or gave willingly the secrets that hurried the communist development of the weapons. At the birth of the United Nations, one of the chief spokesmen and a leader for the United States was a com- munist sympathizer, and is no -in prison, for giving false testimony'about lfis communist activities. It is unbelievable, to most Americans, that such things can happen, and the clever communist organiza- tion takes advantage of' this unbelief, and jealousy of in- dividual freedom t.o promote their cause. In the first World War and the second World War and the Korean invasion the people of the United States escaped the actual scene and destruction of war. We saw pictures of people fleeing the invading armies; pictures of destruction caused by bombs and the machinery of war, 'but at home we experienced none of this. We now realize that the next war, if there be one, will probably bring these things home to us, and the traitors within our own country will, to a large degree, have nmde it possible. A Word From The Governor By Arthur B. Langlie DURING THE FIRST six months ~f this year, the State Depart- ment of Licenses has sent out nearly 5,000 warning letters to drivers whosei records show aJ series of traffic infr actions which! indicate inepti- t u d e, indiffer- e n c e, careless- ness. The warn- ing letters are a part o f t h e "hearing pro- gram" and "point Gov. Langlie system" which has been employed during the past two years. There is a list of about 25 types of traffic law infractions, vary- ing from minor to serious. Each infraction is charged with points, ranging from one to eight, most of which were listed in this column last week. From court records and Wash- ington State Patrol accident memoranda, the driver's record shows the various violations and the points charged against this record. WHEN A DRIVER has accumu- lated eight points, he receives a warning letter from the Depart- ment of License, explaining the nature of the violations and the consequences that will result from continuing infractions. An accumulation of two to four more points after the warning letter results in the driver being called in for a hearing by the district Patrol office. The driver then is on probation~and if he is convicted of further violations which bring his total demerits to 15 points, or more, his driver's li- cense is suspended for one year. In the case of a minor, a warn- ing letter goes out when he has acquired from four to six points and he is cited for a hearing on a basis of six to eight points. A person under 21 can have his li- cense suspended upon receiving eight to ten points. DRIVER HISTORY is compiled over a se/,en-year period, al- though the full point schedule is used for the preceding 24 months. Each traffic violation prior to the 24-month period and back five years, is rated at one point on the driver's record. The law requires the Depart- ment of Licenses to maintain a case record of every person li- censed to drive a motor vehicle; it also requires courts having jurisdiction over traffic offenses ':o forward records of conviction and forfeitures to the Director. IT HAS BEEN estimated that by the end of this year 12,000 drivers will have received warn- ing letters because their records ~howed violations charging them with eight points. Hearings, re- suiting after an accumulation ofi 10 to 12 points, are being held at the rate of about 275 per month. The pyschological effect of a warning letter is invaluable in promoting safety on. our high- ways.

Sunnyview Sanatorium, Kit- sap County, was selected first because of: (1) Low patient load ---only 35 patients in 1951 when the recommendation was origin- ally made. (2) Fire hazard--a real problem for the housing of sick patients in this two.story frame structure.

To care for 60 additional patients in Firland,I it would be necessary to employ l additional nurses, nurses aides,i cleaning maids, pantry maids, and to purchase the added food, p~per goo~s, etc. The number ot employees to care for these 60 patients at Firland would be 21.
