Colliers Story
Tells of Christmas Tree
Business in the Tobacco
Valley Territory
Lincoln County once again is in
the national spotlight, this time
brought there by Rafe Gibbs' article,
"Christmas Tree Capital" which ap
pears in the December 4 issue of
Colliers, and features Eureka, the
"Christmas Tree Capital of the
The article, which is accom
panied by three illustrations re
produced from photographs in Kodo
chrome by Joe Dearing, is found on
Page 26 of the issue and gives a
'big town" reporter's version of a
profitable business in a rural com
munity. Sentiment in Eureka con
cerning the story seems to be
divided, but it is a story which will
attract interest throughout, the na
tion. and every Lincoln County citi
zen should be interested in reading
the article.
The article gives a history of the
business in the Tobacco River coun
try- According to Gibbs, cutters
make from $10 to $40 per day, with
few being in the lower bracket.
Methods of handling the trees are
also discussed and it is stated that
Eureka ships 1.800,000 trees
nually to the outside world.
Libby news stands quickly sold
their entire bundle of this issue of
Colliers, but The Eureka Drug
Store, has an adequate supply of the
magazines, and will be able to care
for those who wish to read the
article but do not take Colliers.
Regardless of its reception in Lin
coln County, the story will do much
in helping create interest through
out the nation in Eureka and Lin
coln County's Christmas Trees, and
will aid in getting this section in
the minds of the country.

It is generally felt that thc mill

to come unless there should be some
drastic change in conditions. The
timber from the "tree farm" is ex

In view of last spring's flood
water disaster space in the Hungry
Horse Reservoir has assumed
greater value than anyone had
counted on previously. Mr. Newell
said. In the face of this fact the
Corps of Engineers, which agency
has major responsibility for flood
control, felt that greater discharge
capacity was needed for quickly
evacuating the 3,500,000 acre-foot
reservoir in times of impending
Original specifications for the
dam called for two outlet pipes,
each eight feet in diameter and
each having a discharge capacity of
4,000 cubic feet per second. The
pipes will be 460 feet long and pass
through the dam at a downward
incline from an upstream elevation
of approximately 100 feet above
bedrock. The third unit to be added
will be of similar size and capacity.
In addition, a "glory hole" spill
way, having a maximum discharge
capacity of 35,000 feet per second,
will be constructed.
From the standpoint of repaying
the Federal Government for the
cost of the Hungry Horse Project,
the additional outlet will be of con
siderable significance, Mr. Newell
declared. It will permit an opera
tion schedule under which the
Corps of Engineers could recoin
mend a much greater allocation of
construction costs to flood control.
