The Capitol Week
Helena—(U.R)—Whether a person
can file on both the Democratic and
Republican tickets for the same of
fice in the July primary is a ques
tion that has brought unofficial
shrugs at the state capitol.
The question drifted over from
Garfield County.
Norman S. Robertson, Jordan,
reportedly filed for state represen
tative on the Democratic ticket and
thfen asked to have his name also
entered on the Republican ballot.
The County Clerk assertedly ac
cepted the fee for the Republican
filing but declined to enter it in the
absence of competent advice.
Although Atty. Gen. R. V. Bot
tomly had not been asked for an
opinion, there were various curb
stone legal opinions at the capitol.
Virtually everyone agreed that
Robertson could not file on both
trickets, but his attorney assertedly
told him he could.
The law seemed plain, however,
that he could accept only one nomi
nation.
Meanwhile, with the June 5 dead
line nine days away, only 16 state
and congressional candidates had
filed nominating petitions with Sec.
of State Sam Mitchell.
The Lineup was:
United States Senator:
Democratic Ticket, Leif Erickson
Helena. Republican Ticket. R. E.
S»k4en, Billings. Zales Ecton, Man
hattan.
Congressman:
First District (Republican), none;
Democratic, Mike Mansfield, Mis
soula, incumbent.
Second District (Republican) Wes
ley A. D'Ewart, Wilsall, incumbent;
Democratic. John J. Holmes, Helena.
Supreme Court (non partisan);
Associate Justice, Lee Metcalf,
Hamilton; Albert Anderson, Helena.
Chief Justice, C. F. Morris, in
cumbent associate, Helena.
Clerk, Frank Murray, incumbent,
Helena.
Railroad Commission:
Democratic ticket, Paul Smith, in
cumbent, Helena.
Republican ticket, none.
The State Highway Commission
has sold $1,500,000 bonds under the
issue approved last June at a ret
interest rate of .9719 of one perceni
which officials said was the lowest
rate Montana securities had been
sold at.
The bonds, running 10 years and
callable in five, will be issued to
retire the same amount of deben
tures June 30. The highway de
partment reported there was suf
ficient money in its "sinking" fund
to retire the remaining $1,500,000
in outstanding bonds.
The Highway Debenture Act of
1945 empowers the commission to
sell up to $12,000,000 in highway
treasury anticipation debentures for
a construction program, but out
standing bonds must be retired be
fore debentures can be issued for
new construction.
EXTENSION SERVICE
SPONSORS TOUR
Saturday, May 18th, a tour was
held at Eureka to show the farmers
of that area the results of the grass
demonstration plots planted by the
Soil Conservation Service. This
tour was under the direction of
Mrs. A. S. Erickson, Work Unit
Leader of the Tobacco Valley Soil
Conservation District.
Stops were made by the small
grain trial yield nursery planted
on the Wilfred Johnson ranch, Eur
eka; the grass demonstration plot
on R. B. Mullens ranch, Eureka;
the grass plot on Peter Boruu's
ranch, Rexfbrd, and lastly to see
some grass seeding done on Gust
Soderling's ranch this spring using
a deep furrow drill provided by
the Soil Conservation District.
These grass plots consisting of
about 12 different varieties were
planted in duplicate. One set plant
ed in the fall of 1944 and the dupli
cate set in the spring of 1945. The
fall seeding generally showed the
best. According to Mr. Erickson
the land was selected because it
was considered too poor for crop
production and at the time of the
fall seeding, both plots were ex
tremely dry and stayed dry all fall.
These conditions were considered
to be tough enough to give quite
condlusive evidence as to which
varieties would be of value to use
in reseeding work to be done in
the valley.
Some of the varieties represented
were: Western Wheat Grass, Slen
der Wheat Grass, Siberian Wheat
Grass, Crested Wheat Grass, Smooth
Brome Grass, Mountain Brome, Bul
bous Blue Grass, Orchard Grass,
Meadow Fescue. Alta Fescue and
tall Oat Grass. Of these crested
wheat grass stood out by far the
best in quality of stand and in

at all promising,
prising things was the way the or
chard grass showed up because it
is normally considered to be an
irrigated pasture grass and one
which requires a good deal of mois
ture. From the results shown, we
felt a mixture of crested wheat,
slender wheat and brome grass to
be the best to use in reseeding work
with a good deal of consideration
given to orchard grass.
It was too early for the small
grains nursery to show results as
yet but the stop was made to point
out the work being carried out and
results will be published later. This
nursery was put out by the Exten
sion Service in cooperation with
Montana State College Experiment
Station. This was put out to give
some idea of the varieties of oats,
barley and wheat best adopted to
the area.
The stop at the reseeding done
by Mr. Soderling was to show the
kind of job which can be done in
reseeding grass in cheat grass sod
by using the deep furrow drill. This
equipment cuts a deep furrow in the
toughest sod and pushes it away
from the seedlings enabling them
to get a foothold before the cheat
grass and other grass can smother
them. He obtained a nice stand.
from his planting this spring.
Demonstrational work such as
this is the best way that agencies
such as the Extension Service and
Soil Conservation Service have of
checking on the recommendations
put out by the Experiment Station
as applied to the counties in which
we work. They also have value
in pointing out to the farmers of
the county, proof that our recom
mendations are based on as sound
evidence as it is possible to provide.
