Discuss Need For
Experiment Station
This section of Montana needs an
ap-'agricultural experiment station, re
ports the Lincoln County Finance
Committee. Our climate and our
soils differ from the rest of the
state. We are too far away from
any present branch experiment sta
tion for them to carry out experi
ments here.
The proposed branch agricultural
experiment station will be located
so that it can carry out cooperative
experiments in all counties in this
part of Montana. 'Cooperative ex
periments will be carried out in this
manner: An agricultural problem
common to an area will be selected
by the local farmers and the Ex
périment Station. A farmer will:
then be selected who will cooperate
in conducting the experiment. The
experiment will be under the direct
supervision of the Experiment Sta
tion and will receive personal at
tention as required.

During January 2 and 3, there
were 67 applications for chauffeur

Out of the 67 examinations given,
there was one failure, two needed
eyes corrected and several were
turned down because of age. the

Miss Buck said.
Miss Buck revealed that every
