rlGlpS farmer vers
' _
Lincoln county's farm population
is probably as large today as it was
in 1930. according to D O. Mount,;*™
of the Libby office of the
manager
Montana Employment Service, who
made the comment in connection
with the results of a study being
made of assistance given self-em
ployed farmer veterans under pro
vision of the Servicemen's Read
justment Act.
Mount stated that the 1930 census
gave Lincoln county 503 farm units
and the 1945 total was 488. "Be
cause of the help given veterans
in the Eureka. Rexford, Yaak, Troy
and Libby areas in establishing their
own farming businesses." he ex
plained. "the Lincoln county to»al
oi farm units now is almost cer
tain to be considerably over 500."
Under this law. Mount pointed
out. honorably discharged veterans
owning their own businesses can
draw up to $100 per month minus
the net profits of the business, if
any, for the month. Credits va:y
in accordance with length of ser
vice but no veteran is entitled to
more than $1040 In Lin.'« In county
veterans taking a0var:<ge of this
help include logging contractors,
owners of retail businesses, build
ers and farme: s.
Commenting further on the m
petus given farming-ranching acti
vities in Linco'.i county Ly the Ser
vicemen's Readiustment Act, Mount
said only nine self-employed vet
erans had submitted claims in Aug
ust. Inasmuch as few veterans
have exhausted their rights, he is
of the opinion that most of them
now have their businesses on a
paying basis most of the year.
"Indicative of the good accom
plished by this prograrrl in Lincoln
county is the file of commendatory j
and apreciative letters received from i
Lincoln county self-employed vet-1
erans,'' Mount said, calling atten- j
tion to excerpts from two:
"I sincerely believe that the re- '
adjustment allowance program is I
completely satisfactory in its pres
ent form. It certainly was a won
derful help to me when I needed
the allowance and I appreciated the
help I received."
"I know several veterans who |
are operating a rather successful
business, who without aid wouldn't I
have had the opportunity."
Thirteen letters, most of them
favorable, are in the files of the
Unemployment Compensation Com- |
mission, which administers the 'aw j
in Montana, Mount said, adding
that he believes the one that fol
lows expresses the reaction of the
typiqpl self-employed veteran iri this
section:
"It's a lot more than I had ex
pected, and although I haven't had
to draw many checks, those I did
draw have helped to get me started,
and I have suiely appreciated the
courteous service I have received
in the employment office,"
CARD OF THANKS
We wish to take this means to
express our sincere appreciation and
thanks to the Moose Lodge, the Un
ion, and our many friends and
neighbors who were so helpful and
sympathetic following the loss of our
loved one.
