"In the year that is passing Montana has fared well in tem poral things, and our people seem justified in harboring the hope and belief that the lean years have departed, no more to return Our industries and our commer cial institutions are slowly but none the less steadily on the re turn to normal, and altogether the outlook for the state is such as to encourage all who have an abid ing faith in the commonwealth.

Sur ely, then, we may approach the opining hallowed festival in the spirit that wholly befits the day. "Therefore I, Joseph M. Dixon, governor of the state of Montana, do hereby join the president of the United States in designating and setting apart Thursday, the thirtieth day of November, as Thanksgiving day. "On that day, setting aside all our cares and our labors, let us as a people gather in our church es, our homes, or other places of worship as may seem best suited to the purpose of the day, and there unite in a season of thanks giving and prayer to Almighty God for the blessings that have been conferred upon us and im ploring his aid and guidance in the years that are to come.

XMAS SEALS SALE STARTS NOVEMBER 30TH The first step in the Christmas seal sale, which begins on Thanksgiving day, under the direction of the Mon tana Tuberculosis Ass'n., has been taken. $35,000 worth of seals have been distributed among the chairmen j of each county in the state and or ganization of committees to handle j the sale is rapidly being completed. "Christmas seals on >jll holiday let j ters and packages have become very ; popular with the American people as ■ a result of 14 year's use," said Mrs. Sara E. Morse, secretary of the tuber culosis association. "They serve two purposes. One is in educational value, for through their sale the facts about I the prevention and cure of tuberculo I sis and the necessity of organized ef ! fort in combatting the disease are I brought to the attention of the public and its interest in the problem arous ed. The other is in the financial val ue of the seals, for it is through this i sale alone that funds witn which to carry on the work of the tuberculosis association are derived. 35 per cjnt of the proceeds of the sale is spent in the state in the employment of public health nurses, in the différé .1 kinds of Child Welfare work the association is fostering, in follow-up work with tuberculosis patients and with the ex service men and their families in ed ucational work dealing with the pre I I ! vention and cure of tuberculosis and in helping to better health conditions in general. The other 5 per cent goes to the national association for the ex tension of tuberculosis work in com munities where no local organization has been formed to cope with tuber culosis problems Christmas seals came into use 15 years ago when they were sold to provide funds for the; tuberculosis work fostered by the American Red Cross in conjunction with the National Association. The tuberculosis work made such rapid strides and the War brought so many extra demands upon the Red Cross that the Roll Call was insti tuted as a means of providing funds for its work ant! the seal sale taken over entirely by the Tuberculosis As sociation and the proceeds used for the furtherance of anti-tuberculosis work. The seals arc now known as Christ'maxr sealo instead of Red'Cross seals. The results of the work done by the tuberculosis associations through 'hd funds derived from the seal sale have been apparent in almost every state in the Union. The death rate from tuberculosis has been cut in half and through the educational work a more hopeful outlook regarding the disease has been established. It is now gen erally recognized that tuberculosis is a disease which is preventable and enable—if taken in time The design of the Christmas seal this year is entirely different from those of previous years.

Davis and Attorney General Wellington D. Rankin at the Y. M. C. A. Thursday afternoon. A big point was made during the hearing of the method of issuing stor age tickets, and Mr. Rankin, declaring the practice in vogue at elevators is indefensible, devoted a considerable portion of his examination of witnes ses to this question. Testimony showed that when a pro ducer takes his grain to an elevator, it is graded, for instance, as No. 1 dark northern spring, and the stub which tile farmer is allowed to retain bears this unqualified notation. But, the attorney general brought out, the elevator man takes advantage of sev eral values above No. 1 grade, such as fancy, choice to fine, covering which there is a spread of from six to 15 cents more a bushel. This infor mation relating to the description and value of the particular consignment of ,wheat the grower does not get, the examiner contended, and the grow er can regain with his storage ticket receipt nothing but ordinary No. 1 dark northern. The attorney general said he saw "a studied effort" on the part of elevator men to keep the farmers from know ing of these higher classifications that their wheat might go into, bringing several cents more a bushel. He de clared that it seemed highly unfair, in his opinion., C. F. Borberg testified that he and four other growers made up a carload of wheat in U120- and after first offer ing it to the Occident elevator here, shipped it to Minneapolis and realized 32 cents a bushel more for it than was offered by the local elevator. H. S. Brossard, Yellowstone county agent, testified that in the fall of 1919 and early part of 1920 he made an In vestigation on behalf of local pro ducers which influenced them to ship their grain to Minneapolis, and that as a result they obtained 29 cents a bushel more for it than they would have got if they had sold It locally. Mr. Rankin recited testimony to the effect that when a track buyer started to operate in a certain vicinity, the prices paid by the elevators promptly went up. Mr. and Mrs. C. R. Miller entertain ed a houseful of guests to a Radio con cert at their home last evening. The Krebsbach Brothers of Vida down yesterday and brought; with them their loud speaking horn so that as many as wanted to could listen in to what's going on in the air through out the United States. Mr. Miller was successful in pick ing up stuff broadcasted from several of the big cities throughout the states, but there whs considerable static in the air last evening which prevented the concert from being as good as it might have been. However, quite a number of musical and vocal selec tions came through splendidly from stations at Minneapolis, Chicago, De troit, Kansas City, St. Louis, Fort Worth and Los Angeles. The concert was very much appre ciated by those that were present, most of whom had never before heard a radio.
