Amount for Work.
A rumor has been prevalent in the
city and' county that the health de
partment is. receiving $44.000 a year
for its upkeep, and because of this
opposition has been met by the health
department when improvements have
been suggested, according to Dr.
Fred T. Foard, captain of the public
health service, who is sent here by the
government to assist the Great Falls

Cascade county and Great Falls for
organizing and conducting the health
department from August 16, 1920, to
August 15, 1921. The total amount

was $5,000, of which $200 per month
for 6% months, or $1300 has been ex

salary of the city health officer. Seven

this fund has been expended to date
for traveling and other expenses in

disbursed from this sum is sent out
from the bureau of public health ser
vice in Washington, D. C., and is
not a part of the general fund.

OF STATE, PLAN
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
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
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.
'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.
"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.
