AGREE TO GRADE
FLATHEAD ROAD County Commissioners Grant Plea of Residents From Reservation. TO GRAVEL HIGHWAY Stretch From Ravalli to County Line to Be Crowned This Spring. r, All of the Flathead reservation road between Ravalli and the county line will be graded, drained and crowned this spring in preparation for the graveling which will ho done as soon as possible. Promise of this was given by Iho county commissioners yesterday to a committee of 30 reservation citizens. The Flathead people called upon the board and declared that the. road, Which Is the principal thoroughfare, of tile reservation, Is sadly In need of repair. They wanted the whole road gravelled. Beard Promise* Action. The board said that this could not be done, but agreed to replace all small bridges with concrete culverts and to grade and drain the road. Missoula county's part of the highway is about 30 miles long, extending from Ravalli nearly to Poison. .Harold Conkling, reclamation engi neer, was the spokesman of the reser vation delegation. He showed, wilh maps, where gravel can bo obtained and computed approximate costs of tbe graveling with the commissioners. The commissioners tentatively agreed to send the county engineer to the reservation to look over the whole road, learn more details regarding gravel pits and make the plans necos sary to the preliminary work to be done this spring to get ready for the gravel dressing. geho of Lake County. An echo of the attempt to create Lake county by the last legislature this county to be formed of parts of Flathead, Sanders and Missoula coun t|es, sprang out as a result of the con ference. No mention of the proposed Lake county was heard In the session, but members of the committee after ward said they realized that possibly the attempt to create Lake county on the ' reservation, principally, might have some effect on the decision of the /commissioners. "Wo can readily understand," said one member of the committee, "why the commissioners must be cautious In this matter, because If much money Is spent In the Flathead valley and then Lake county should be created to cut that valley off* from Missoula county, the'commissioners might bear the brunt of some criticism. However, we do not want a new county. We wont, good roads and tho just treatment we deserve from Missoula county. If we get these, I for one, am absolutely against creating Lake county. How ever, If we cannot get roads that we must have, over which to do our busi ness, then a new county proposition might be entertained by some of the reservation residents." Residents of St. Ignatius called upon tho county commissioners with the re quest that aid be giten to construct a good road from the reservation high way to the postoffice of St. Ignatius The postoffice is about two blocks from the main road. Tho people of St. Ignatius have raised a fund of $600 to build the road. They requested the county commissioners to appropriate a like sum. St. Ignatius is not incor porated and the highways through the town are tinder county jurisdiction. MISSOULA SHRINERS TO BE DINNER HOSTS Wives and State Officers Be Guests. to wnji up Adv.

Dr. Foster related how the Germans had in one ease Captured one city of some 50,000 inhabitants; had lined the young women up in ihe public square and allotted them t othe officers; had taken the rest hack to Germany and forced them to slave for Hun militar ism. Tills, he said, Is going on all the time. After the unfortunate people be come too weak to stand, even at the point of tlie bayonet, they are sent hack to France through Switzerland. At present they are arriving In France at the rate of 1,000 every day. They are sick, worn out, crippled, worthless peo ple. They are sent hack to France on ly that they may spread their diseases there. Were it not for the American Red Cross, said the speaker, it would he impossible to provide for these peo ple. They are being given attention now. Story after story was related by the speaker, telling of the unqualified sac rifiée of the French women. "To he sure," he said, "there are had women in France, just us there are in London. War will always maké such creatures. It drags them down and down, or it pushes them up und up. And you women, you too will find this out. Mark my word, you too will find It out. It will drag or it will push. You have not felt the war yet, nor have ; ou be gun to feel it. But before it is over some of you will he pushed up and up till you are equal to those noble women of France, or you will fall lower and lower. "I went over and saw what these women were doing and what they were going through. Then I came home and the first thing I saw was tlie fuet that we haven't saved 10 per cent of what it was estimated we had to save at the beginning of the food campaign. No, people, I do not ask you to con tribute or give or save in the nume of charity. Those women over there would not receive anything given in that light. They are above it, far, far above it. I ask only that you con tribute, or give, or save so that in time you may become worthy of sharihg the sacrifice of this war with the women who have been giving all for the last three years. 1 talked witli one woman shortly before I left.

"The war is not a romantic tiling. Romance has long ago gone out of It. The filth, the hardships of trench life I cannot tell you."

It will mean that our young men —your young men—young men from this university and this city, will have to pile their bodies up to fill the gap. And this line will break if we don't send food and fuel to France. "But one of the first things I saw when I arrived in America was a gang of men who refused to work because they could not get more than $6 a day. Still they ate and enjoyed what this country gave them. At this time I am not particumrly interested in labor, or I am not particularly interested in cap ital, but I do gare about this coun try and I am going to tell the truth. don't think it fair to point to this young man or that and say, 'You go over and fight and we will give you $30 a month for It, and we will shoot you if you refuse to go.' And say to this one, 'You may stay here where all is safe from German shell fire and good and comfortable, and you needn't work If you don't want to.' I think that the time has come when wo should refuse to tolerate any able bodied man who resnses to work." This afternoon he spoke to a largo audience at the theater and his address was a summary of facts, which he has repeated to audiences in Billings, Boze man, Butte and Helena, tending to arouse Americans to the seriousness of tlie war situation. Reports that the Germans are starv ing, he characterized as without foun dation. "People tell you that the east Is more aroused to the nation's necessities than they are In the west. That I do not believe. If you will take any specific thing, you will find that tlie west has done Its share every time. ! | | A Business Proposition n F That will per year pay 150% should be interesting.

"How can the-American Red Cross be of greatest help right now?" Dr. Foster asked General Pershing on the eve of his departure, from France for the United States. The commander of the American overseas forces did not hesitate. "By helping sustain the morale of the French army," he replied. The heroic stand made by the French nation against the German horde and the importance o £ sustaining the strength of the nearly exhausted people were emphasized by Dr. Foster In the address which he gave before a large audience in the Bijou theater yesterday afternoon. Francs Exhausted by Brave 8tand. In burning phrases Dr. Foster de scribed the condition of the French people as he found it during his travels In the war zone as a. representative of the American Red Cross. He urged upon his hearers the necessity of lend ing every possible aid to the Red Cross In its efforts to maintain the French morale. . "Anyone with my opportunity for thoroughly examining every phase of relief work in France could have no doubt of the overwhelming needs or of the wisdom, economy, dispatch and de votion with which our funds and ma terials are used by the American Red Cross to sustain the spirit of heroic France," he said. Germany Cannot Be Starved. Americans must not pin their hopes to the food situation In Germany, said Dr. Foster. Food is indeed scarce in the enemy empire, but starvation will never break the German front. "The strategic, economical course for Amer ica is to throw her full strength against Prusslanism as quickly as possible." Even German prisoners and refugees retain a firm confidence in the ability of the German army to force the allies to their knees, said Dr. Foster. He told of meeting hundreds of prisoners in France and Belgium and discussing with them the situation in Germany.
