Western News AND LIBBY TIMES W. R. LITTELL, Editor and Manager ^_! Entered at the postoffice at Libby. Mont., as second-class matter. Published every Thursday at Libby, Mont., by Western Montana Pub lishing Company. Inc. <* PAPER FOR LINCOLN COUNTY OFFICIAL Subscription Rates; .$2,50 . . 1.50 One year . Six months . .. < SSOCIATION "A preliminary estimate of Mon- ; tana's third largest industry, the travel business, shows that the num -1 ber of cars checked through Mon- i tana's Port of Entry stations was about 15% greater than last year. | Rad Maxey, State Advertising Di- : rector, Helena, announced today. I Approximately 1,775,280 Montana j guests spent almost $55,000,000 in the Treasure State. "This is the first year, Maxey said, "that Montana has advertised | its recreational advantages by a State financed program. Approxi-1 16% visitors stated IMS NATIONAL €DITORIAI— TrtZ/FLcrnBfA-^ MONTANAS THIRD LARGEST INDUSTRY IS TOURIST TRADE. SAYS MAXEY mately they came to Montana because of advertising. From this figure, it can be deducted that those 16% who came to Montana because of the advertising, added to the State's coffers more than $110,000 in gaso line tax alone. For all tourists, gasoline tax fund was increased by more than $1,000,000. It must be remembered that this amount is net gain, as none of it is refundable because of non-highway use. "Montana's record this year was a good one," Maxey concluded, "Everyone who commented, stated that Montana's hospitality was won derful: that the food and accommo dations were in the main good with reasonable prices; that the Port of Entry stations and attendants were a definite asset to the State and a welcome change from the Port of Entry stations encountered in other States. Montanans are to be com plimented. But the travel business can be increased to an ever greater industry if every Montanan will take it on to himself to induce the visitor to stay a little longer and see a little more. There is not one single area in the State that hasn't some thing to attract the visitor. The lo cal people should make a determined effort to acquaint the tourist with these points of interest, for the travel industry is a net industry in that it takes nothing away from the State, yet brings millions of dol lars to Montanans each year." EARLY DAY MILL BURNS TO GROUND Lewistown—(U.R) — The Cumber land Mill, one of the last big early day gold mills, burned to the ground last week in a fire believed to have been man-caused. The mill, built in 1910, was located near Maiden, about 22 miles northeast of here. Its operations were suspended in 1918. « V m THE RESTING SOUL ation in the his- j darned in f Christ; "Come unto I nd arc heavy . laden, and 1 will give you rest." Millions of hearts haw heard it since it was first spoken. Into weariness and loneliness, to the sick I of body and soul, to the burdened) and tired head, these words have i come like a call from heaven—the j warm voice of Jesus speaking of peace. "1 will give you rest!" It's true, there are some men and 1 women in the world who seemingly | do not want rest. They rush around j from one thing to another, striving pulling, pushing. But take them aside at a late hour when the hard, fearful day is done, and they too will confess that they need rest, I not only for their bodies, but above all for their unquiet souls. Every one needs rest from life's fitful fever, from worry, from the gnaw ing pain of life without God! And the only place under heaven where this kind of peace and rest can be found is in Him Who said: "Come unto Me!" Beneath all our modern restlessness of mind and soul is always and forever the haunt ing fact of sin. It can be taken a way only by our Saviour from sin. There is no other way. With the forgiveness He has earned for us, we can come finally and forever to stillness and peace. We can find rest for our souls. And to bring men and women, young and old, the assurance of this peace and rest is the main purpose of our Christian ministry. We invite you to share it with us.—ST. JOHN LUTHERAN (Adv.)

"A j Foreign Affair." The film co-stars (Jean Arthur, Marlene Dietrich, and a:John Lund, and features the cele brated stage actor. Millard Mitchell, Due to arrive next Tuesday at the Dome Theatre. "A Foreign Af j fair" tells the story of Miss Arthur's experiences in Berlin as one of a j committee from Washington to in j vestigate morale of American boys ! stationed there. She is prim, seif | righteous and suspicious of the ! fraternizing with frauleins, a sus ; picion that is confirmed by gossip (that an American officer is protect ing glamorous. ex-Nazi singer Mar lene Dietrich. The officer (portrayed by Lund) is assigned to assist Miss Arthur, who is determined to expose Mar lene's officer. Lund proceeds to stymie her investigation by making love to her, an activity that gets him more involved than he had planned or anticipated. What hap pens when the woman from Wash ington and the babe from Berlin swap notes on him, is said to make "A Foreign Affair" a very funny film affair, indeed. Every effort (of the 80th Con gress) at economy was met by stub born resistence too often supported by the White House, and some of it bordering on treason. When ap propriations were cut from bloated departments, the wastrels were kept and the real servants of the public dismissed, in an effort to discredit the Congress.—Apollo (Pa.)

TRANSMISSIONS The engine, with its lubrication and cooling, and the carburetion and ignition systems, functions as a unit to produce power, and is com monly known as the power plant. In addition, a mechanism is neces sary to transmith the power pro duced by the power plant to the wheels of the vehicle in order that they, rotating, may push the car along the road. This mechanism is known as a transmission. Its pur pose is to engage and disengage the engine from the wheels. This is done by means of a clutch and a series of gears. The clutch is the part of the transmission that causes the power to be given to the drive shaft. The purpose of the gears are to control the amount of power that the drive shaft has. The lower the gear the faster your engine turns, and the hotter it gets. The higher the gear the more economical it is to run. The greatest economical investment that you can make is in good ser vice. a loose part can be readily tightened before it becomes worn.

One of the frankest j statements was recently made at the dedication of a dam in Montana, by Michael W. Strauss, Commissioner of the Bureau of Reclamation. "Your government is definitely en tering the low-cost production field." he said. "And it plans to make ... all the power from here to the Pacific Ocean available to its citizens over transmission lines which they own." That is certainly unequivocal. And if it is proper for the govern ment to establish a socialized elec trical monopoly in the Far West, mg it is equally proper for it to do the same thing everywhere else. Then, if such a monopoly ever is created, the government will dom inate all the enterprise of America. As David E. Lilienthal once point ed out. with commendable frank ness, "Those who control energy, control people." The Tennessee Val ley Authority, which he once head ed, is the prime example of that fundamental truth.
