ANNUAL GRANGE STUNT NIGHT TO
FEATURE TWO SHOWS SAT. NIGHT
The third annual Stunt Night
which is sponsored by the Koo
tenai Valley Grange, to be held Sat
urday, April 10 at the Junior High
School Auditorium promises to be
the best program yet given by Lib
by talent. The first performance
will begin promptly at seven o'clock
and the same will be repeated at
nine, or as soon after as possible,
the same evening.
Eleven organizations are pre
pared with stunt skits, musical
numbers, etc. of not more than
twelve minutes each. The program,
in full in the order that it will
be given appears on another page
of this paper.
The east entrance on the south
side of the High School building
will be reserved for contestants
only. The west entrance on the
same side will be for the public.
Doors will be open at 6:15, and
tickets for the first performance
will be sold until all available space
is taken. Those buying tickets for
the second performance may wait
in the gymnasium if they wish. Ad
mission price is 60c for adults and
30c for children of eighth grade and
under.
The place of each organization on
the program was determined by
drawing lots. Judges will be guided
by a set of regulations or questions
which were furnished to all con
testants before they began prepara
tion for the program. A competent
group of three judges will deter
mine the winner of the prizes of
$20. $15, $10, and $5, for the first
four places, which will be an
nounced at the close of the second
performance
Members of the Grange in charge
of preliminary plans are the follow-!
ing; J. F. Bowen, general chairman:
Mrs. Art Shelden and Mrs. Hugh
Slauson, program arrangements;
Mrs. F. C. Robertson, publicity; Mr.
and Mrs. A. C. Grambauer, tickets;
other members will assist in carry
ing out the final performance.
The High School Band will play
between acts.
To Give Quilt Away
Saturday, April 10
e
It won't be long until that bright,
wool-filled quilt that the Girl Scout
Brownies have been selling chances
on will be gone. Gone, too. will
be the opportunity to help the girls
out in this money-raising project.
They have been working hard to
sell tickets and have done quite
well so far. However, if they do
not raise enough money for camp
by this means, they will have to
undertake other projects to do so.
The drawing will take place next
Saturday afternoon, April 10, at
3:00 o'clock, at the Gamble Store,
where the quilt has been on display.
Anyone who wishes is invited to
be on hand. However, it is not
necessary to be present to receive
the quilt.
Tickets will be sold downtown
Saturday morning to give more
people a chance to win the quilt
and an opportunity to help out in
a local cause.
Another feature of interest at the
drawing will be the awarding of
the prizes to the Brownie and the
Girl Scout who sells the most
tickets.
Board Approves
Tentative Budget
The Board of County Commis
sioners met the first of the week

A road petition was presented to
the board, signed by Homer B. Hud

BERT DAVIS FILES FOR
COUNTY COMMISSION
Last Friday Bert Davis, well known

Clerk George C. Earle, for the office
of Commissioner from the First Dis
trict in Lincoln County. Mr. Davis
who is a veteran of World War No.
I, and is filing on the democratic
ticket, has the following comment
to make regarding his candidacy;
"Having lived practically all my
life in Northwestern Montana (Flat
head County 1891 to 1900, and what
is now Lincoln County, from 1900
todate) and having had during this
time much experience in location,
construction and maintenance
roads, as laborer, forest ranger,
foreman or road construction, gen
eral foreman of road construction,
and superintendent of road con
struction, and having been in a posi
tion much of my life which neces
sitated my using Lincoln County
roads throughout the entire year,
or at least such part of the year os
they were -passable, I feel that
am eminently qualified not only as
to the kind of roads that are needed,
but also as to how to build those
roads.
"Let's not continue to throw good
money after bad in a fruitless and
expensive effort to maintain the
kind of roads that we do not want."

1 « proud to present the culmination
°f six weeks of work on speech,
acting, «properties—in a classic rep- I
resenlation of "Jane Eyre."
Not only is the dramatization an j
authentic and faithful version of
the book by Charlotte Bronte—but
the seniors here spent perhaps more
money than has even been spent by
a school of the size of Libby—to
obtain authenticity in costume and
the local presentations of high
school plays because it depicts the
greatest love story of the century—

idealistic manner,

Jane Eyre is perhaps unusual in
Instinctively a young girl sets be
fore her some standard of perfec
tion and consciously or unconscious
ly she strives to emulate the graces
and virtues of this ideal. Some
times it is a mother who serves as
her model, or a superlative elder
sister: or it may be a glamorous
actress or some dynamic feminine
figure of the day. But, as a general
rule, a girl forms her ideal concep
tion from some very appealing char
acter in fiction. It is a safe as
sumption that, inevitably, when she
turns the pages of "JANE EYRE",
that immortal book by Charlotte
Bronte, and acquaints herself with
,
the heroine, she will have hö
thought of looking further for
pattern of feminine perfection. For
the character of "JANE EYRE" is
adorned with all the charms and
graces and virtues that any young
lady could ever hope to aspire to.
Would you like to see her run the
gamut of emotions from joy to de
spair, from horror to ultimate peace
and happiness? Would you like
to judge for yourself the qualities
that have endeared this heroine to
lovers of literature throughout the
world? Then don't fail to attend the
