AND LIBBY TIMES W. R. LITTELL, Editor and Manager I Published every Thursday at Libby, Mont., by Western Montana Pub lishing Company, Inc. Entered at the postoffice at Libby, Mont., as second-class matter. OFFICIAL PAPER FOR LINCOLN COUNTY Subscription Rates: .$2.50 _ 1.50 One year .. Six months I 1*41 NATIONAL €DITORIAL_ " SSOCIATION TO VOTE ON TWO REFERENDUMS Referendum Measure No. 52 will authorize the issuance of a five mil lion dollar building bond for the greater university of Montana. This money, if Montana's citizens vote in favor of the referendum, will go for the construction of badly needed buildings and equipping necessary buildings. The money will also go into other permanent im provements as well as for the ac quisition of necessary grounds. The six units of the greater uni versity of Montana—Montana State University, Missoula; Montana State College. Bozeman: Montana School of Mines, Butte: Montana State j Normal College, Dillon: Eastern 1 Montana State Normal College. Billings; and Northern Montana College, at Havre—will receive a share of the money. If this referendum passes, the state will be authorized to become indebted for the sum which is in excess of the constitutional limita ( tion of indebtedness. Referendum Measure No. 51 Referendum Measure No. 51 pro vides for upping taxation on real and personal property 6 mills on each dollar of taxable valuation. The money derived from the additional levy will be appropriated by the legislative assembly for the sup port, maintenance, and improve ment of the greater university of Montana, agricultural experiment station with its branches and sub stations, and the agriculture exten sion service. This increase in millage will be for a period of ten years starting with 1949. Amendment of Section 39, Article V Section 39 of Article V provides that no obligation or liability of a person, association, or corporation which is owned by the State or any municipal corporation within the state shall in any way be diminished by the Legislative Assembly. Sec tion 39 also prohibits the extin guishing of such liability or obli gation except by its payment. Two amendments to this section will make it lawful for the As sembly to authorize cancellation of any personal property taxes not a lien on real estate and which have been delinquent for at least ten years. It will also be lawful for the sembly to authorize the cancellation of any contractual obligation owed to or held by a county, for seed grain, feed or other relief, the col lection of which obligation is bar red by the statute of limitations. as v c WTm ■Jr 4 m SCHOOL DAYS A few more days and children all over the nation will be return ing to the class-room. Here in Amer ica secular education is made com pulsory, and no intelligent parent would question the value of an education for his child. It is one of the blessings of our democratic av of life. But parents owe their children writing, and more than "reading, arthmetic." Someone has said: "An uneducated thief will steal a piece of coal; and educated thief will steal a railroad." In other words, to train a child's mind without regenerating his heart is as dangerous as putting a loaded gun into his hands. You are increasing his capacity for evil. The primary duty of parenthood, particularly for Christian parents, is to bring the children God has given them to a living faith in Jesus Christ, their Savior. God says to parents: "These words which I command thee this day shall be in thine heart; and thou shalt teach them diligently unto thy children." Are YOU doing right by your children? Are YOU teaching them that ''the fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom?" Are YOU setting them a Christian example? Are YOU speaking to them about Christ, their only Savior, and His salvation? If not, our Church—its pastor and people 1 —stands ready to help you. Tome with us and we will do you good." Enroll your children in our Sunday School and release-time classes.
