KOOTENAI DAM
T . ,
I am not a business person, and
have nothing to lose, but I would
like to express my ideas on the
proposed damming of the Kootenai
River below Troy.
Assuming that it is true that we
need the water to supplement the
Grand Coulee Dam for irrigating
a vast amount of farm land, I do
not think there is a more favor
able spot in the United States where
less damage would be done to the
general public by storing the same
amount of water than the damming
of the Kootenai River.
We people who were born and
ra j se( j j n Troy anc j Libby at first
thought think it would be a ter
r ibj e thing to flood the towns and
va u eys anc j a n of th f am üi ar
place ' ' that we h{jve e bgL ™us
tomed to, but aren't we thinking
with our hearts instead of our heads?
Let's see the other side nf thp nir
8 see 016 other Slde of the P 1C '
' .
|" i^^ ue that in th « recent past
j farmers were producing more
j than needed. But with the war
;2Y er seems as though the United
plates nas taken on about half of
*v e world to feed. At the present
tl 7 le ther3 15 . 3 great shortage of.
whe3t - with the demand becoming
greater all the time. Where are
going to raise the wheat to fill
Ji 16 order. Surely not along the
Kootenai River in Montana.
The area that would be flooded
under the proposed plan has just
about served its purpose. The tim
ber was cut offy^ears ago under
the old destructive methods of log
ging, which leaves practically noth-!
ing for a second cut. So no damage
would be done to our forests, and
we will all agree that this is far
from a farming country.
I can only see two industries that
will be continuous and successful
they are grow
of ! ing timber and recreation. The dam
i would not interfere with the grow
ing of timber, and it would increase
'the facilities for recreation a vast
i amount.
In addition to that, the
in people of Troy and Libby would be
| paid for-their property and a new,
modern town could be'built in their
places with much better locations
along the lake shore.
It would take quite a number of
! years to construct the dam. While
1 the work was going on this country
' would boom. I think it would be
ja more stable community after the
dam was completed than it would
be otherwise as it would be the
best recreation area in the United
States, and without a doubt, re
! creation of this nature is a great
asset.

, ARMY DAY IS
SATURDAY, APRIL 16
j
Helena—(U.R) — Montanans have
; been asked by Gov. Sam C. Ford to
j take an active part in Army Day
ceremonies April 6 to pay tribute
to the veterans of World Wars I

j The day is dedicated not only to
the regular army, but the organi- j
i e^ei ves, the national guard and
the other organizations which form
' tHe basis for our national defense
program" Ford said.
"I commend the occasion to our
people and suggest that at the pro- f
per time they display the flag at :
home and in public places and take |
an active part in any ceremonies i
that may be arranged."
Rural traffic deaths increased 24 I
per cent in 1945, according to the j
National Safety Council. Rural |
deaths were 60 per cent of the total j
traffic toll in 1945.
