Min Site Chosen
For several months the Troy De
velopment Association has been
Working toward a goal—namely
caw mill for Troy. It is hoped that
.with the vast timber resources easily
accessible that such a plant would
stabilize the economy of the town.
When the Forest Service timber
sale on Grouse Mountain was a
warded last week to the Burns
Brothers of Crosby, Min., it is
apparent that an important step
toward such a plant has been reach -
ted.
With this timber available the
Bums Bros, have gone ahead with
their plans for establishing a mill
here. The site close to the
River is already chosen and will be
on the E. J. Weidner property
which was formerly owned by Ed
Scott This will place the mill
north of and contiguous with the
pole treating plant of E. E. Drury
and sons. The saw mill is entirely
independent of the pole plant, we
are informed.
James Bums, with timber cruiser
Mr. Huff and millwright Mr. Schoo
namaker, has spent the past week
in Troy, during which time he has
been to Spokane and other points
making arrangements for mach

Last Two Bouts
On Saturday, April 10th the Troy
Boxing team was host to the team
from Libby. The boys showed very
little hospitality however trimming
the Libby boys 7 to 3; with three
matches being draws. This was the
best card of the season with

The
Tuesday, April 20th the Noxon
team came to Troy to take a pasting
from the local boys. Troy won
six of the bouts with Noxon getting
one win and three bouts ending in
draws. The crowd was also treated
to four exhibition bouts by the
Troy boys before the regular card
started. These four bouts all ended
in draws. This was the last bout
of the season and any fan who
missed any of the home card missed
some of the best entertainment of
the year in the way of sports. Les
Coffman and Don Moore should be
given a rousing vote of thanks for
the splendid work they did with the
boys this year.
A complete list of the results of
the bouts of both matches will be
published next week.

Contributors to the program were
divided into three groups; children,
teen-age, and adults. Two prizes
for the beat contributions were
given each group, one for the best
musical and the other for the best
in non-musical presentations. Each
and everyone enthusiastically cast
their votes.
In the children's group, Hope Mc
Mullen won the first musical prize
for a vocal solo, "Sweet and Low,"
accompanied by Mrs. Fleming. The
other prize in the children's group
went to the Junior World Wide
Guild girls for a stunt.
Competition for the musical prize
was keen in the teen-age group.
A trumpet solo played by Orvil
Richards, "The Old Refrain," and
accompanied by Mrs. Hooper, won
first place. The other prize was
won by a wide margin by the Boy
Scouts for a dialogue by Tom Skelly
and Robert Curtis.
The most appreciated numbers in
the adult group were in music, a
guitar duet played by Mr. Hum
phrey and A1 Crosley, and next the
violin solo by Miss Virginia Reed.
A skit given by Mrs. Fred Johnson
received the most votes.
A number of neatly decorated
lunch boxes were sold to the highest
bidder by Ray Frost. The proceeds
are to be used to repair the old
Methodist building which is to be
used as a parish home. It is hopfed
that it will be a convenient place
for a Dramatic Club and perhaps
a home town orchestra.

program are gratified by the re
suits and are beginning to make

HAVE YOU EVER THOUGHT
... That the wiring in Your home may not be properly
protected, and are You sure that Your Children or
Your Guests may not come in contact with a live part
of a socket or an outlet?
... Do You Know that the "Live" Wire of a lighting
circuit has 240 Volts, and not 110,-115, or 120 Volts
and is sufficient to cause serious injury?
. . . Your Main Switch or Load center should be pro
perly Grounded and the Neutral Wire should always
be identified on all circuits in the wiring system and
should be connected to the proper terminals on all
outlets or appliances.
... If You are not sure of these requirements why not
have an Electrical Contractor or a Wireman inspect
Your wiring for these faults and have him replace all
loose and worn outlets, as loose connections are not
any help to Your Radio Programs.
