M. Worthing- j ten. local manager. The average weekly check was sll. with January. February and March being the period gI largest distribution of the funds.

Forecast For 19Al Portrays A Bright Future For Glacier County Farmers Agriculture's outlook for 1941. based upon a comprehensive study made by । the U. S. Department of Agriculture during recent weeks, is one of the j most heartening in years, summary of which has been prepared by County । Extension Agent R. G. Newell for the guidance of Glacier county stockmen and ranchers. Several hundred copies will be in he mail early next week, according to ( him. the office having held up de- j .iveiy until then pending a more op portune time for distribution. The summary is prefaced by the j statement that plans are just as ne cessary to the agriculture business as to others, and that in view of this the 1 department feels its obligation to avail farmers and ranchers the benefit of its recent study. It is pointed out tha’ war conditions in the old world may give rise to developments as to influ ence one way or another the final re ality. In general, the department’s stud: affords the following picture: <a Better domestic demand so: farm products. b > Smaller exports. (c) Higher general average of pric es. •d) Larger cash incomes from mar-, k etings. <e> Fann income may be the larg est since 1929. • f Fewer farm workers may be available. <g) Costs may be larger. (h> Production may be smaller. (i) Carry-overs will be large in many items. (jl Production for domestice mar kets will be in the best shape. <k) Main support to prices and in come from wheat, cotton and tobac co will be government loan and ex port programs. <ll Agriculture is and will be in ex cellent shape to "dove-tail” into the National Defense program. The national defense program, it is explained, will increase consumer in come: result in five billion dollars more being spent than in 1941 and in general cause business to be better falling headfirst and striking the frozen road with great force, thereby breaking his neck. Coroner Beck to»d The Chief that there was no evidence given proving the victim had met with foul play, as was at first suspect ed. Funeral services will be held Saturday afternoon at the Brown ing Funeral Home. Burial will be in the Cut Bank cemetery. The deceased is survived by his mother, .Mrs. Joe Danans. and a half-brother and half-sister. Joe. serving in the V. S. navy, and Mrs. Dorothy Ruegamer of Cut Bank. Name of Chief Changed to Browning Chief With this issue of the Glacier Coun ty Chief the name of the paper has been slightly changed to read the "Browning Chief ’. Tne public invari- j ably calls it the Browning Chief, and outside correspondence is addressd 9 out of 10 times to the Browning Chiei —its shorter and mere easily remem bered. We hope our readers will like, the change and assure them that the Chief this year will be bigger and bet ter than ever. Happy New Year. $2 Poor Tax to Be Paid by All Males 21 to 60 The two-dollar poor fund tax will be among the collections to be made b the county treasurer's office in 1941. according to Mrs. Margaret Carberry. The tax will be collectable throughout 1941. All male persons between 21 and I GO with the exception of tho-e in ex emption clasess, are required to pay the tax. । The funds are used lor county wel fare work. NOTICE The Met!. list W ■ Soeiet of Christian Service will meet in the 1 church parlors Thursday afternoon. Jan 9. at 2:30 o'clock Mrs. Donald Schmidt and Mrs. Hazen Lawson will ।be the hostesses. All ladies are cordi | ally invited to attend. Pertinent is the statement that the | new year should see a three million 1 • reduction in the ranks of the unem ployed. ; The situation with jegard to wool, i one of Montana's major crops, is ex | plained in the following: 1. For several months there will be | a strong domestic demand but domes tic prices will depend a great deal c:. the prices paid for imported wool 2. An important factor on wool i prices will be. <a> the amount cf Australian u.ni | South African wool released for ex : port. <b» the prices fixed for this wool ! by Britain. i 3. The military demands for woe will be offset in part by the fact tha: the wool supplies available to Britain and the U. S. are much greater no > than before the war 4. The blockade is keeping wool out l of ma«t countries. Britain. U S.. and Japan are about the ’.ar-est consume: , that can get wool. 5 As government orders are filled for clothing, blankets, etc., mill con , sumption is expected to increase in j the first part of 1941. 6. The supply of wool in all -cm i tions in the U. S. on September 1. was estimated to be somewhat larger than 1 a year earlier, but. it is small when considered in relation to the probably | domestic consumption in the next sev eral months. An important highlight is that hog i cattle and lambs will average higher ! than 1940. I Montanans' Inc. in a recent compil- I ation of income figures for major industries in 1940 set forth the following of interest in connection with the department's forecast for the new year: Crops $65,000,000 Livestock - $55,000,000 Mining $42,000,000 Tourists $24,000,000 Oil and Gas SIB.OOO 000 Dairy Products $6,000,000 Lumber $5,500,000 Coal $4,400,000 Total $219,000,000 NUMBER 41 Glacier County Pays $19,728 As Share State Taxes Cut Bank, Browning And School Districts Are Recipients Glacier county’s tax tribute to the foi 1941 : h ill 19 519.728.65 check for that amount having been ecent ly turned over to the state reasurer by the countv of.ice accord* ng to Treasurer Margaret Carberry- To be apportioned Glacier county’s eneral, road, bridge and other funds - the sum of $74,292.50. also repre enting what was collected for the irst half of the year.

The Catholic Hour was begun on a network of 22 stations, and now car ries its message of Catholic truth on each Sunday of the year <and Good Friday through a number of stations 1 varying from 81 to 95. situated in 42 the District of Columbia and Hawaii including one short-wave sta •:on broadcasting to the entire west ern world Consisting of an address i mainly expository by one or another i America's leading Catholic preach -1 ers and of sacred music provided by one of Father Finn's musi j cal units, the Catholic Hour has dis ! tinguished itself as one of the most impressive and appealing religious broadcasts in the world. An average of 25.000 commendatory letters a month, about twenty percent of which come from listeners of otl\er faiths, cives some indication of its populari ty and influence In addition to copies of addresses and other literature. 300.- 000 prayer books were distributed to enquirers without charge during the first three months of 1940. The program’s production costs run to approximately $43,000 a year—a little less than ten dollars per station per Sunday—which must be raised entirely by voluntary subscription. The National Council of Catholic Men invites all thasc who are interested in the maintenance of this far-reaching and effective work of religion to con tribute to its support.
