Facts from the past gleaned from the Moses Lake Herald, Columbia Basin Herald and The Neppel Record by Cheryl (Driggs) Elkins:

From the CBH on Oct. 7, 1949:

Pamphlet on CVA available free

A pamphlet containing information on the proposed Columbia Valley Administration has been prepared and will be made available to persons requesting it, Sen. Warren G. Magnuson has reported from Washington, D.C.

All the material contained in the pamphlet has been placed before congress. It deals with the pending bills proposing establishment of a CVA, and provides a detailed analysis of one of the more prominent bills. It is available at no cost.

Titled as “Introduction to a Columbia Valley Administration,” the pamphlet is available on request to Senator Magnuson, Senate Office Building, Washington D.C.

Dennis note: Don’t remember hearing about or seeing anything else about a CVA. Was this organization ever put in place?

Two former chiefs on college grids

Two football players who did their high school playing at Moses Lake are candidates for college squads this fall.

Walter (Whitey) Willging, who made the Eastern Washington College squad as a freshman last year, is again on it. A fullback in high school, he has been converted to center at EWCE.

Lendell Salmon, who finished at Moses Lake last spring, is a candidate for the freshman team at Washington State College.

Overseas mail deadline

Overseas Christmas Packages must be mailed between Oct. 15 and Nov. 15, Postmaster Loren Harris said this week. The Nov. 15 closing date is necessary to assure delivery before the holidays, he said.
