Hungry Horse News An Independent country weekly, published each Friday Altered at the Columbia Falls, Montana, post office as second class matter. The Hungry Horse and Glacier National Park area newspaper.

Elsewhere $4 year; $2.50 six months. Vo subscriptions accepted for less than six months. (Address changes outside Flathead county are charged 25 cents). R «HMtMK u Chat With the Senator Netu Aluminum Plant We do not know of another man more respected in the Flathead than Senator Mike Mansfield. As a five-term congressman from this district, Mansfield drew large majorities in this area. He was in the national spotlight as an able congressman, and his stature has grown in this first term as sena tor. This week there was the added report of Mans field being chosen by Vice President Nixon as one of six senators to attend a British Parliament observ ance in November. We asked him about Glacier View, a project of On his way to Cut Bank last Friday, Mansfield stopped by in Columbia Falls. much interest to Columbia Falls people. The answer, the same as a year ago was "dim." Mansfield has introduced bills a number of times to build Glacier View, and would again. He thinks prospects for fed eral approval of either a Bureau of Reclamation-built dam, which he favors, or a private power dam, prac tically hopeless. Mansfield feels that the proposed Middle Fork di version project as one that would have far less nation al opposition. A study of the proposed project is sche duled for 1956-57. This would see a dam on the Flat head's Middle Fork and a tunnel about eight miles tak ing waters into Hungry Horse reservoir. The National Park Service and Forest Service are not opposed. Mansfield had little to add about the proposed rad , We asked Mansfield about Viet Nam and boutn east Asia in general. He had just made a return visit there for the U. S. Senate. He commented that condi* tions were better, and added words to the effect that the only way they could go was up. Apparently there is a 50-50 chance that the former French colony s southern portion can withstand communism. He was critical of American aid to the Kingdom of Laos, as an example. There is a situation where Am erican dollars to the tune of about $800 a family are being spent to support an Army in a country where liv ing standards ordinarily are from $25 to $40 a year. That doesn't mean that the individual family is get ting so much more. We may hear more about this. Mansfield had recently been in East Berlin, and he said: "the people there have the grim look des pile the new Russian smiles approach," Mansfield is much concerned over the Russian sit uation For years the Communists tried the rough, gruff and tough approach. Now they are finding the "smiles" approach more effective. Mansfield empha sized that Russian objectives have not changed. As a result of the new Russian approach other European countries are reducing armies and letting their guard down. Some Americans seem to be charm ed by the new Russian technique. Mansfield repeated that Communist had seen the Great Mansfield replied that yes, he had seen tne Great Falls Tribune magazine section feature on the United States Senator Tom Walsh. He emphasized "Tom Walsh was a United States Senator in the whole meaning of the words. that installations for before Friday of the Anaconda proposal of a plant in the Spokane area to process clay for alumina, and any comment as a result he said was "offhand." ar We objective as a Montanan, as well. MR Hoio Much to Gme A problem for Columbia Falls residents are the frequent fund drives, practically all of them with merit. Columbia Falls and a number of other nearby com munities lack a community chest drive, so those who would help, time after time are faced with the ques tion of how much to give. The Missniilian this week had an interesting adver tisement entitled "What is a Fair Share for Our Com munity Chest." Supported are 13 agencies. The follow ing tabulation is based on average gifts for Missoula and 200 similar communities. Suggested Annual GHt Suggested Percent of Salary Annual Salary $12.00 0.4% $3.000 20.00 0.5 4,000 30.00 0.6 5,000 6,000 7,500 10,000 15,000 20,000 25,000 42.00 0.7 60.00 0.8 100.00 195.00 300.00 465.00 1.0 1.3 1.5 1.9 At the same time we should keep in mind that a $5 check to the Girl Scout or Boy Scout drives does not discharge our whole responsibility to such organ izations. That money goes to support the national and district setups—and not local troops. In our own com munities the big problems are to find men and women w illing to serve as troop leaders, and without them The whole pattern of supporting worthwhile causes is not simple. We hope Columbia Falls sets up a com munity chest within a few years to handle all dona tions except for churches, which is another matter, of course ; In ie, MÄftÄ SSt Se 'shtlTweglre and above table seems to have merit. MR The main page one story was of the dinner given by King George and Queen Mary of England for President and Mrs. Woodrow Wilson. Latest casualty lists of the armed forces in Europe occupied much of an inside page. There was a story about a Washington man convicted of seditious remarks about the Un ited States government, by urging people to not buy Liberty bonds, and similar case in the midwest of a clergym an accused of anti-war state ments.

Each year Mart does a good business in trees. Addie is cook for the crew of men and the girls go to the nearest school. There is a lot of work con nected with this Christmas tree life, but again it is something of a va cation from the general work of farming. J. E. Sparks is a busy man these days, running to and from the South Fork. The Sparks "cat" was set to work for the Forest Service two weeks ago up Logan creek. There have been several S. O. S. calls from the operator, E. G. Steinmetzer. First it was "Stuck On a Stump", next it was "Sunk On a Spring", ner of the modern self service super markets. Under one ad heading that read 'the apparel doth oft proclaim the man", shoes were offered at $2.50. Other revealing items were one pound of chocolate for 35 cents, sirloin steak for 23 cents a pound and pork at 24 and 25 cents a pound. (Those were the days when a man hoped to make $5 a day.) men's patent leather Weavers Resume Xmas Tree Harvest Something like 8 per cent of the earth's surface contains aluminum compounds. There is a lot of alum inum in the back yard, especially if the dirt is clay. Yet for 66 years man has depended solely on one alum inum compound, bauxite as the source of the metal's "ore." In 1889 the German chemist, Karl Josef Bayer dis covered the bauxite process. The name comes from the French province of Baux, where the ore was first discovered. Indication of how dependent aluminum production is on bauxite is the flat statement in World Book En cyclopedia: "But aluminum ore may be extracted easily and cheaply only from bauxite." Bauxite is found in Germany, France, Italy, Hun gary, Yugoslavia, Dutch Guiana, the'African Gold Coast, Tennessee, Arkansas and more recently, Jam aica. this area. Dependence principally on Dutch Guiana bauxite saw American aluminum producers especially during World War II experiment with pilot plants to see if Pacific Northwest clays for example could provide the raw material for aluminum. The pilot plants apparently worked, but costs were not competitive. Anaconda, newest aluminum producer, made in teresting headlines in Saturday newspapers serving The Spokesman-Review story was as follows: Clays which the Anaconda Aluminum company plans to use in producing alumina at the plant to be built in the Spokane area are abundant in the Inland 'Empire, a company geologist said yesterday. C. Jay Parkinson, Salt Lake City attorney for An acon d a) yesterday told the federal power commission bis comply is ready to build the plant to make alu m j na f rom domestic clays. jje reported the company has developed a pro cess ^ use domestic clays. It is now dependent upon foreign bauxite for alumina production, Francis Holdereed, Anaconda research engineer, said eastern Washington, northern Idaho and western Montana areas have been surveyed for suitable clays, The clays are believed to be abundant near Mos cow> Idaho, and Mica and Clayton, Wash, Alumina is the powder extracted from bauxite from which aluminum is made. Most of the bauxite ore mined outside the iron curtain now comes from South America, Caribbean islands and the Gold Coast of Africa. Parkinson said the next step likely will require the construction of à pilot plant to further test the pro cess with the eventual construction of a large plant to produce alumina on a commercial scale. If alumina can be produced from clays at a price competitive with imported bauxite ore, it may hold the hearing theFPCon a oSsal bv Pacific Northwest Pipe 8 - by the fPC on a proposal by Pacuic iNortnwest .ripe The P r °P° sed alumina P lant would require a large supp iy 0 f natural gas, estimated at up to 40,000,000 cubic feet a day. - Naturally the Flathead is interested, and in Mon tana we want that plant in this state, if possible. The product Spokane area cipally used (at this time) to supply the Columbia Falls operation. Furthermore, the Flathead has a number of pros pects for natural gas. There is the new Morning Gun field developing between Browning and East Glacier Park, extension of the Montana Power Co. line to Missoula and desire of that company to have a circle route that would include the Flathead. We would also be on any gas line that came from the Cut Bank area to Spokane. Sobering fact is that the new alumina processing from Pacific Northwest clays found in Idaho and Wash ington requires huge quantities of natural gas, This gas is partially for the purpose of removing water from the aluminum clays. Processing in the Flathead of Idaho and Wash ington clays means shipping clay with its water here by rail. That apparently would make the process too eXP TheFlathead to have this new plant that is sched MR Faith in our land and its institutions increased this week as we saw the way every American we met become so serious and earnest at the thought of President Eisenhower being ill. A part of this feeling results from the man being uled for the Spokane area needs to find a clay with a high aluminum content in western Montana and nat ural gas. We've such clays, but not good enough. Actually, construction of any plant to utilize Pac ific Northwest clays for aluminum does not seem close.

We thought we'd take the 9:45 mail train and have a lot of time in Kal ispell and they said they would stop the Western Star to let us on and have someone to take us through the train. So we went on the 2:07 No. 3 train. We were all pretty excited. Every older child had a first or second grader to take care of and Mrs. Harrington had the littlest first grader. Bea Washburn and Dorothy Brewster went on the train with us. When we got to the depot at Bel ton, Mr. Bromley, the ticket agent, had our tickets ready. Mr. Bedellion is the telegraph operator. Assistant Trainmaster Michael DonohueiAas the one who was to accompany us. The train came and we had to hur ry awfully fast because we had to walk to the observation car at the end to get on and it was a very long train. RIDE IN OBSERVATION CAR ^ nice observa .

When we got to Whitefish we walk ed down and looked at the engine ^"thTualTcouTsSrt,"we "Ä/Äf hrei Ä to us. There was a private car on the end of the train, the road super visor's car, and he was out on the back of it and he waved at us a lot like he liked kids. Mr. Donohue got permission for us to go through the roundhouse. We went on an engine, saw big rotary snowplows, rode on the turn table and then saw an engine turned around. It was all fun. Eddie Brewster and Helen Floren took us to Kalispell to the fire de partment. We especially liked the fire engine and the way the men slide down a pole. They told us about fire prevention, too. We want to thank them and all the people who helped us have such a wonder ful field trip. We'll never forget it. SEEMS FALL-LIKE It certainly seems like fall. Grand ma Brewster reports that Lynne stopped in to say "Hi, Grandma. You know I think fall is the best season with the leaves turning red, yellow and all kinds of lovely colors. There were two squirrels, too, run ning from one tree to another get ting cones to store for winter." Cliff Matteaus and Byrant Brown from Coram are tearing down the log cabin of Washburns that was partly burned last spring. They are doing a good job. Mr. and Mrs. Bob Ray from Wes sels ranch have moved to the Moose cabins at Apgar as Mr. Wessel sold his ranch. boys to make 21 over 7. Just to brag a little, Rod J&ein me t Z er is our grandson.

S. church, Mrs. Norman Olsen, formerly Gloria Steinmetzer, returned from California last week. She reports the weather was terrible in California, but her real complaint was home sickness. Yes, another native daugh ter thinks no place like the old place, Flathead. HIKE IN PARK Wrote Mrs. Grist: "We went on a hike to Sperry chalets, Sunday. The day was beautiful and warm and we found a few flowers, hare bells, still bloom along the trail. Some of the bushes were frosted but we saw very little snow until we reached the chalets. The trail is in good con dition and we all thoroughly enjoyed Organist to Play At School Assembly Music by Frank Biery, Hammond organist, will be featured at the school assembly program, Tuesday. Biery, who is bringing his own full size organ, is billed as a versatile and capable performer, and pre sents a program both entertaining and instructive. He demonstrates the uses and effects obtained on his complex instrument as well as play ing "music in the modern mood." The student assembly will be held at 1 p. m. in the multipurpose room. the hike, although this Monday morning we were all a bit stiff." Mr. and Mrs. Charles Boies and Butch were weekend guests of Wash burns. They have just returned from a two-week trip to Minnesota and Iowa. Ann and Larry Mackin were dinner guests of the Washburns, Sunday. Flora Brownback was an overnight guest of Susan Bengtson. Flora went to Apgar school last year. It was nice to see her and she was glad to see Apgar. Sunday afternoon the Prices and Warren Ensign family from White fish took a picnic dinner and went over the pass to Many Glacier. The day was perfect and the colors beautiful. "I'm wondering how long a person would have to live in Gla cier Park not to enjoy its scenery," wrote Mrs. Price. Mr. and Mrs. Earl Carver from Oregon visited the Glenn Carvers for a few days and then they all left for Oregon. The Glenn Carvers are going on to California for the winter. Down at the lake we saw that Ray Simpson was putting his boats in storage for the winter. Two new Chevrolets in Apgar — one across from the schoolhouse, a red one belonging to the Flemings, and a blue one that Mrs. Powell just bought. Very pretty cars, both of them. PLANS NEW MOTEL Bill Mackin has a crew busy mov ing cabins to a new site to make room for a proposed new motel to be built on the lake shore facing the lake and the mountains. The 1955 tourist season just ending has been the best so far in the 14 years we've been operating here, BiU says. When the children went for news they took notes to tell about our col lecting warm clothes for a family in Korea. We have quite a little al ready. Mrs. Goos sent a warm quilt. Pretty nice. Mrs. Bengtson com mented: the children tell me Mrs. Harrington would like to make up a box of warm clothing for a family in Korea. I believe this would be a nice gesture for the Apgar school and I hope all the mothers feel as I do. This is a family that her son knows of in Korea and for that reason we feel that we know them, too. RELIABLE REAL ESTATE 2 ROOM FURNISHED CABIN, modern. ... $30 per month G.
