Sagte Defeats Troy Sagles league leaders Troy Vets Sunday on field 20 to 6 when they raked the combined offerings of Don Moore and Ray Lindsey for 25 hits. The Trov boys kept their batting aver ages up, getting 12 hits off Harp Turnbull but the old rr aster bore dov. n in the clutches and kept them away from the plate most of the way' He lost control for a moment in the fifth when Rav Lindsey led off with a single and came home hone on little Ray's double down the third base line. A1 followed with another double sending his brother home. Taylor drew' a base on balls and came in on Kuwaharas long drive over the left fielders head but the rally died and the Vets didn't score again until the 8th when three hits and a base on balls led to another three runs. Sagle crossed the plate for six more runs in the ninth and set the Vets down scoreless in their half and the game was over. The Vets play Libby inning twilight game Wednesday evening and go to Creston, B. C., Sunday, July 3. Let's hope they improve.

Water Rate Increase When patrons of Troy Municipal Water receive statements at the first of July all will be surprised, that department has not in the past made a business of sending bills. But the surprise does not end there, for with each statement will go a letter stating that the commission has permitted an in as crease in rates. Those who paid §2.00 will be listed owing $3.00 and There will be no new rate below §2.00. Hotels, bars, res taurants, lodges and churches will find an increase considerably above the former. The school also will pay enue to the water department. Last week the new commissioner of water was busy nutting down new pipe along Missoula Ave. where the frost broke the cast iron pipe last winter. Several per sqns were without water for five months. Now the drought is over.

The First State Bank of Libby ZEDCRAL DEPOSIT INSURANCE CORPORATION MEMBER Brush Teeth Twice a Day, Dentist Suggests at Meet Everyone should spend at least four minutes a day in the home care of the teeth and gums, Dr. Dickson G. Bell, of San Francisco, said at the 32nd annual meeting of the American Academy of Peri odontology. "For healthy gums the teeth should be brushed at least twice a day—night and morning—and the most important time in the morn ing is after breakfast," Dr. Bell declared. He also recommended that the teeth be brushed after each meal whenever possible. Dr. Bell said there is no gen eral agreement among dentists re garding the best design for a toothbrush, but that it was his opinion the most satisfactory type is one that has a flat or level trimmed bristle surface—the so called straight toothbrush. He added : "The brush should be of medium size with a large number of bristle knots or tufts set plose together and four rows in width. This gives a degree of density or body to the brush. The many bristles will cover area of the tooth surface and more thus give a better cleaning result. "This method of brushing cleanses the surfaces of the teeth and th «irurival tiques bv massages th * * m **y*, * ,ss " f es -he permitting the , bristles of the brush to travel in the same gen eral direction as food passes over the teeth." . , . , . , , ~ other states an isolated island off Rhode Island's coast will be the site of a mammoth research laboratory which the government wants set up its fight against the foot-and mouth disease.

June 29 At tainment of the goal of only live auto fatalities per 100 million miles of travel, set at the recent Presi dent' Highway Safety Conference in the face of the 1948 record of 8.1 deaths "depends greatly on the desire of the public to bring the nation's war-deteriorated highways up to date." This statement was made here today by Charles M. Upham, en gineer-director of the American Road Builders' Association, in an analysis of safety data which he said, indicated highway fatalities decreasing in proportion to the degree in which recommendations of the Conference have been ap plied in various states. "This has been due to the re markable work of the Action Pro gram of the Conference, in which it was shown that had there been ( no such concerted effort, the high- > death rate of the nation last year would have been 48,000 in stead of 32,000," Mr. Upham said. "As General Philip B. Fleming, general chairman of the Conference pointed out. 'partial failures really reflect a failure to apply the Action Program and the program has not spread far enough into the grass roots.' " Citing records of the Automotive Safety Foundation, Mr. Upham pointed out that six states which diligently have followed the pro gram lead in the decrease of traf fic deaths in 1948. Rhode Island, he said, heads the list by a wide margin, with an exceptional record of 2.7 auto deaths per 100 million miles of travel, nearly one-third less than the goal of 6 set in 1946. The other five states are Mas sachusetts, 3.8; North Dakota, 4; New Jersey, 4.2; Connecticut, 4.3; and New Hampshire, 5. "On the other hand," Mr. Up ham said, "New Mexico has a death rate of 12.1, approximately six times that of Rhode Island, or twice the amount of the set goal. "The goal of 6 set by the High way Safety Conference in 1946 has not been met, the average being 8.1. Again referring to the 32,000 deaths in 1948 in comparison with the possible 48,000 except for the efforts of the Action Program, Mr. Upham said: "This record is even more re markable than the figures indicate in the face of the deplorable condi tion of our highways.
