AGREE TO GRADE
County Commissioners Grant
Plea of Residents From
TO GRAVEL HIGHWAY
Stretch From Ravalli to
County Line to Be Crowned
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
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
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
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
"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
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.

written, 'lie shall lead his children.'"
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
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
"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. She told me that
her father hud been killed in tlie first
few days of the war; that lier husband
laid given up his life for France; that
but a few days before her sons had
been burled, hut that she still lived in
hope that tier grandchildren might livo

"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." The speaker told
how he had seen French soldiers stand
In mud and water up to their knees for
hours at. a time. He told how they

men should break, what will be the re

—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

I am not particularly interested in cap

This afternoon he spoke to a largo
audience at the theater and his address

repeated to audiences in Billings, Boze

tlie war situation.

Helping Francs Important Now.
"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
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
"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.
