When polio strikes, it hits in discriminately among the old and the young, the rich and the poor, and we must be prepared to help anyone, anywhere, who falls prey to this crippling disease. i The annual March of Dimes, which closes hero January 30th as sures the best available care and treatment for all polio victims, re gardless of age, race, religion or financial status.

Gil lespie, Paul Church. Wm. Guernsey, Carlton Joughin, Ed Dutton, Rev. Wm. Steams, Joe Fennessy Jr., Mrs. Ç. W. LeDuc and Inez Raje kin present. County Agent F. Robinson and Fred Robertson appeared before the group in behalf of the movement to procure an experiment station Montana. Because of the benefits all residents would re ceivc if.agriculture was improved and aided in this section, the Com nuttee voted to recommend that all individuals and organizations sup port the movement. During the dis cussion several ideas on ways to raise the remaining portion of needed funds were advanced. The following were elected as the new officers for the Association:— Carlton Joughin. Chairman; Ed Dutton, Vive-Chairman; Inez Rate kin. Secretary-Treasurer. Several business matters were discussed and committees were appointed to make recommendations at the next Com mittee meeting in two or three weeks. _ .... - LIBBY'S POST-OFFICE BUSINESS SHOWS $60,000 INCREASE IN '47 Libby has sufficient postal busi ness to warrant city delivery of mail to its homes but was unable to get this service allowed last sum ■1 account of a population shortage of less than one hundred, The foregoing statement was made by Postmaster Forrest L. DeRosia. who added that should several of! the unincorporated sections of Lib by come into the incorporated city, ' tbere wil1 be arT >ple population for ' meetin 8 city mail delivery require me nts The Postmaster added that busi-! ness at the Libby post office is mak-i ing a steady growth. During 1947, he stated, there were 18,074 money orders issued here. These amounted to a cash value of $237,394.12. Dur ing the same period postal notes in the value of $6.209.09 were issued and stamps and envelope sales a mounted to S22 141 20 making a ™al year's business in money or ders - P ostal notes and stam P and envelope sales of $265,744.41. The 1947 sales show an increase 0 f aonroximatelv S60 000 over cor rLponding^ales m iqi when there wire 1^389 monev orders issued which amounted to the monetarv sum 0 f $133 309 22 Postal notes on sa ] e f or the first time through the office amounted to a total value of j $2 353.11 which with sales of i stamps and envelooes amounting to $20 286 08 made a total for the vear ! of $205 953AL The highest sale of stamns inH envelopes previous to 1946 was1 $20.027.10 in mu <5 0 i„ e *u a mer on was ! same"'items' irf^MO^amounted 1 to ' ei a 11 a on. ~ mo* . o ' Thus it seems that when and if one or two more sections of the city at present unincorporated, come i n t 0 the municioalitv thev will not 0 n'y make it possible for them to r^livT cfty fire protection them selves but will also make citv mail delivery to their homes and the homes of other Libby citizens a possibility.

The tables were attractively decorated by Sister Ohlerich; snow men made of cotton, and paper thermometers were placed on the table—the winter months on one side and on the opposite side were the summer months—and the diners found their places at the table by finding the month in which thev We A re i ,0 K n ; A debate then followed as to which season of the ..year was most enjoyable.

Sustained Yield and its relation to Troy might have been the cap tion the judge chose for his dis cussion when he addressed a fair sized audience in the High School Auditorum in Troy on Thursday night.

He is the lawyer the Troy Develop ment Association has retained to represent it in its fight against the proposed co-operative agree mont between the Forest Service and the J. Neils Lumber Company While the following report of the judge's remarks is in no wise verbatim it is believed to be ac curate and unembellished. The speaker related that his first work in Troy was for E. E. Drury & Sons, whom he assisted in securing the RFC loan that made it possible for them to erect the pole treating plant in Troy. In the course of negotiations several REA contracts were secured, and part of these con tracts was that buyers agreed to deposit amounts in the Bonners Ferry bank which totalled $500,000 inventory money—these moneys to be used in the production and pur chase of poles by the company. As time went on it was evident that the amount was not forthcoming and thus the enterprise was ser iously handicapped and of late fi nancially embarrased to the point where the RFC would foreclose if some preventitive measures were not taken before February 1 of the present year. In attempting to reorganize the firm they found many more par- j ties interested in getting out saw timber than poles alone, but at this ! time they have tentative bidders for the project providing these two ! young men, _ , Burns Brothers from Crosby, Minn., find things , propitious for the establishmg ofiB small saw mill in connection with ; the pole plant.
