PECK WORKERS \ Continued from Page 8) would not have been let oil so easily, federal union CALL MASS MEETINGS Federal Union 20,192, newly chartered by the A. F. of L., started calling mass meetings. A committee saw Colonel Larkin, chief engineer on the project. The telephone girl took the names, and the leader was excluded. He had been on a committee in November which protested the 3,000 layoffs and reduction in pay for those kept on. He showed up the ad ministration so badly occassion that his presence was not desired again. The names of the men were taken again when they sat down. The interview was short, and the men came out boil ing at the 'military* manner in which they had been treated. So on the question of making the barracks optional, which they put to Colonel Larkin three times) they failed to get a definite answer. WIRES AND LETTERS on this TO CONGRESSIONAL DELEGATION Telegrams and letters have been sent to various 'bigshots' especial ly the two Senators. This brought about a war department 'investi gation* which, as the union has predicted, proved a whitewash. The Great Falls Tribune was asked to print the facts on the barracks conditions. It replied that its re porters and local representatives were too busy. The union then offered to submit its own report, giving Colonel Larkin time to reply in the same issue. The union was willing to be quoted so that the Tribune would not have to take re sponsibility. At the next mass meeting the draft of an article on bedbugs and double bunks was voted point point, and a copy was submitted to Colonel Larkin. The Tribune is taking refuge be hind the fact that it has not heard from the Colonel. The correspond ence with the Tribune has been read at the mass meeting, which was not fooled by its efforts to evade the issue. The men are boy cotting the Tribune and are ask ing all their friends at home to do likewise. SEN. MURRAY DELUGED WITH POSTCARDS A postcard campaign concen trated on Senator Murray was inaugurated by 2,300 men at the last meeting, and continued by means of three thousand circulars explaining what the mass meeting had done and saying, "You do the same. Two thousand postcards saying, 'Make the barracks op tional* will produce quite an im pression, even more than the pe tition we have just sent in. BOYCOTT GT. FALLS TRIBUNE The mass meetings are asking all unions, farm organization, un employed groups, and other sympa thetic organizations to write to Senator Murray, sending copies to Colonel Larkin, and to boycott the Great Falls Tribune as unfair to organized labr. o RAPE OF NIAGARA (Continued from Page 4) Unless we protest loud and vigorously and in great numbers, this ultra valuable lease of our MILLER'S PHARMACY *"*■ 11 rights will be lost or at least we will be forced to defend our rights in outside courts.

Also the taxpayers would be avoiding the risk of a fire loss, the burning of records, which in surance would not be sufficient to replace. The proposal for bonding Sheri dan county for $50,000 for the pur pose of building a court house will be voted on by the taxpayers, on primary election day, Tuesday, July 21. If the taxpayers author ize this bond issue, the United States will match it with a grant of $45,000, if the county commis | sioners put that much into a court house, or a sum equal to 45 per cent of the cost of the court house a s a federal grant, which is an out and out gift. The bonds can be sold for 4 per cent interest, or less..

S. CREDIT BODY Montana farmers will be able to obtain emergency crop and feed loans within the next ten days, Miles Romney, Montana Di rector for the National Emergency Council, said Saturday. Explanation of methods for the handling of loans was sent to Mr. Romney by W. I. Myers, Governor of the Farm Credit Administra tion at Washington. Applications will be supplied farmers through field supervisors or local emergency crop loan com mittees. Total for any one farmer will be limited to $200 and will be advanced only if the farmer is unable to secure credit elsewhere. "The loans will be made for the production, planting, cultivation and harvesting of crops for sum mer, and for supplies where they are necessary for production for 1936 crops, or to produce neces ERNEST L. WALTON Wolf Point, Montana CANDIDATE FOR • DISTRICT JUDGE at PRIMARY ELECTION JULY 21st. 1936 RESIDENT OF T HF! JUDICIAL DISTRICT FOR PAST 28 YEARS, AND A PRACTICING ATTORNEY THEREIN FOR THE PAST 20 YEARS * Pub. and Paid for by E. L. Walton court house bond issue, if all be used would not be over $2,000 per year. This would leave something like $1,000 per year on present cost of court house rent, and up keep and maintenance, to be ap plied on the payment of the struc ture. These figures are the very highest; if the county builds a cheaper court house, the saving by reason of the new court house would be the same, while the in terest and payment charges would be less. It seems from the figures avail able, that the savings alone would pay all interest charges, plus the $1,000 per year on the new court house. In this way, in time the savings would pay the entire cost of the court house though it would not do it in twenty years. Below follows the figures show ing what the rent and upkeep and maintenance of the court house has cost from March 1913 to June 30, 1935—the cost from July 1, 1935 to June 30, 1936, is not includes as the fiscal year is not yet ended.

"No loans will be made for pur chasing livestock or machinery or for payment of rents, debts or taxes," he said. Interest rates on the loan are fixed at 6*4 per cent. Security iyll be a first lien on all crops fi uinced with the proceeds of the emergency loan, or by a first lien on livestock where the loan is to be used for feed. A limit of $500 has been placed on the tenants of any one land owner in each county, with the $200 maximum applying to mem bers of one household who are occupants of the same farm. Disbursements on the loans will be handled through the Emergency Crop and Peed Loan Office at Spo kane, Wash. WHY NOT TRY A PRODUCERS NEWS WANT AD FOR QUICK RESULTS?
