Agent's Office County Agent Frank Robinson reports that there will be a series of rodent control meetings held at the following places; Troy: April 13th, 2:00 p. m. in the Home Ec. room of the high school. Libby; April 13th, 8:00 p. m. in the public library. Eureka: April 14th, 2:00 p. m. in the Lincoln County high school. The newly developed poison 1080 will be discussed. Mr. Edward Beebe, Assistant District Agent for the U. S. Fish and Wildlife Service will be present to discuss the pois on. its effectiveness, its use, etc. Last year the new poison was ap plied for the first time on an ex tensive scale in Montana when Flathead, Lake, and Sanders coun ties used it in rodent control cam paigns. These programs are admin istered by the Fish and Wildlife Service. Counties are divided up in to small units and the land occupi ers in each unit spread the poison in their own area. Where a volun-1 tary labor program such as this is. used, the cost of the campaign per acre is about 4c. The programs are very effective. Last year, it was estimated that kills of about 97% were obtained on the Columbia Ground Squirrel. If there is enough interesf in the county, it is possible we will have a rodent control pro gram this spring. I i j ; .

After a moment's hesitation, a youngster raised his hand and said: 'Jesus." "No, Billy," said the teacher, "I said, the greatest living man." 'T know," replied little Bill, "but isn't Jesus still alive?" The boy was right! Christ is as alive today as when He walked up on this earth and taught men by His great words and deeds. "I am He that liveth, and was dead; and behold, I am alive forevermore." The greatest living Power on earth today is Jesus Christ, and He is still performing miracles in the lives of His followers. For "He was declared to be the Son of God with power by the resurrection from the dead." Only the almighty, ever-living Son of God could say; "All power is given unto Me in heaven and in earth; and lo, I am with you alway, even unto the end of the world."
