OF STATE, PLAN OF ROTARIANS » Ira Gregory Tells of District Convention in Salt Lake; Rogers a Delegate. Plans to boost Montana's scenic at tractions as a source of value to the state were formulated at the twentieth district convention of Rotary at Salt Lake City last week, according to Ira L. Gregory, who with George Rogers of the Great Falls delegation, returned here Sunday. Tom Davis of Butte was elected governor of this Rotary district in cluding clubs in Montana, Utah and Idaho by acclamation, and the ques tion of a dissolution of the present district was carried by a large major ity but by a reconsideration vote a recommendation to the international organization not to split the district was made. The Great Falls delegates, aided by .the Butte club, fought the proposed measure of a separation, and Mr. Greg ory stated that the matter would most probably be passed in Montana's favour at the international conference. When asked concerning a tentative program to be directed by him as gov ernor, Mr. Davis said that he would carry out the plans inaugurated by Mr. Bristol. lie paid high tribute to the activity developed by this retiring gov ernor, who will not be replaced until July, when the international conven tion will confirm the election. Boost Montana. 'International Rotary has a policy or ; program of universal service which is ^ adhered to by every district," said Mr. Gregory Sunday. "In addition is a dis tinct national plan which will be de veloped locally by every club. This in-, j eludes Americanization and boys work, j In this district these will be empha-1 sized by each club. "Apart from the plan of national service, will be brought up a scheme for treating each state's problems by the state clubs acting in co-operation for the realization of a fixed program. It is the purpose of Montana dubs to boost co-operatively for this state and to nyüce its scenic attractions a source of value to the state as a whole and not to any particular community. We are going to boost for Montana just as Utah and Idaho will boost for their re spective states, and that is an essen tial spirit of Rotary. Plan Conferences. "Intercity conferences started last summer will be continued, according to the general opinion expressed at the convention. These proved very valuable to the various clubs and the plan will be caried out more exten sively this year. "Another feature of the Rotary pro gram which was touched ' upon with out a definite policy adopted, was that of helping crippled children. Some of the club reported cases taken under the direction of Rotary phy sicians which proved successful." The Great Falls delegation ps5d a striking tribute to the Salt Lake club which acted as host during the conven tion. The brand of hospitality, form of entertainment and their general good fellowship were described as that of the typical westerner. Montana Delegates.
