Issued every Thursday. Published at Arlington, ~hington, by THE ARLINGTON PRINTING CO. ~I. C. CARPENTER -- FRANK MARSH 41. C. CARPENTER ......... Editor & Mgr t~a~eted as 2nd Class matter, in the Post Office at Arlington, Wash ~ton, under the act of March 3, 1879. ZDIrORIAL THAT BOND ISSUE It has been suggested that the special bond issue elec- tion scheduled for Nov. 3 is confing so close to the tax- paying period that closes Oct. 31, that people will be too conscious of taxes and nfight therefor vote against the bond issue. We believe that it is an excellent thing for people, when voting on bond issues, to be thoroughly alive to the fact that bonds mnst be retired through taxes If the need is great enough the people will rise to the situation. Here in Arlington we face a situation regarding our schools which calls for careful consideration on the part of the people. It is the need for facilities to meet the not spectacular, but steady, growth of our school population, a growth that has already set up overcrowded conditions. Together with this is the question of whether or not Arlington is to include in its school program a recognized Junior High School. While we have often referred to certain Junior High School activities in Arlington, the fact remains that we do not have a junior high school. We do not have facili- ties that are required for junior high school accredation. The Washington school building, of 6 rooms, which should accommodate junior high, is inadequate as to space and arrangement, and is now overcrowded, and it is in need of a new heating system The question of remodeling or replacing the Wash- ington school has been considered carefully. There are a number of factors which enter into lhe q estion: Should a remodeling job be undertaken, the school district will face the entire cost. However, if new construction is undertaken then state aid up to $120,000 can be secured. However, before state aid can be had, it is laecessary to meet certain provisions as adopted by the last legislature, which are that a local school district must first have used up its own financial resources before call- ing upon the state. This is the reason that the patrons of Arlington school district are being asked to vote a bond issue up to 85% of its bonding ability. Should the bond issue carrv, there will be fuuds axailable through use of local f unds plus state aid to replace the Washington building with a one-story build. ing containing eight classrooms, shop and sewing and cooking rooms, which would qualify the system for an accredited Junior High School In addition it would be possible to construct a new fron entrance and shower rooms for the present gym- nasium and auditorium; also the heating plant installa- lion would be such as to care for both the Washington alad the Roosevelt, schools, and there would be some funds OBSERVATIONS[ Along the Way ] The story recently published in a Seattle daily about Editor Peterson of the Cle Elum pap- per, who sleeps with his head out the window, reminds us of our late friend "Fresh Air John- son." Mr. Johnson was a logger in the local camps in the good old days of the bunkhouse. With a good sense of humor, and a hearty laugh "Fresh Air" informed us one time on how he acquired the name. In the bunk house, in the early days, he said, it was the custom of the men when corn- ing in from the woods wet with perspiration and rain, to hang their clothes around the stove, which was always kept hot, and of course, to keep the room warm the door was kept closed, as fresh air was cold air. Such publications as the Ap- peal to Reason were prominent in the bunk houses in those days, and as the men played cards, or discussed the unjust social conditions they aimed their accumulated saliva from the chew of plug cut or snoose, at the sand bo~t in which the stove stood, quite often find- ing the hot stove an excellent target as it announced a bulls eye with a hiss, all of which added to the richness of the at- mosphere and was responsible for the name often used in de- scribing the cozy place as the "Boers' Nest." Johnson always contrived, he said, to have his bunk in the end of the building and would cut a hole through the wall at the head of his bed, through which he could stick his head at night, thus his body being in the warm room and his head out, where he could breath air that was not laden with the odor of sweaty socksand clothes. To "protect" his bunkhouse mates from the fresh air that might seep through the hole, he tacked a canvas around the hole and this he tucked in around his neck at night. After his retirement we vis- ited Mr. Johnson at his cabin home. We found it well venti- lated as the boards were wide spaeedwithout battens. An add- ed close to nature feature was the dirt floor. We noticed that his reading material was such magazines as the National Geographic, The Readers' Digest, Saturday Evening Post, etc. O BRYANT . &-1 CHIMNEY FIRE AT L. O.
