COAL PIPELINE LAW IMPORTANT TO AREA A bill which could have great .significance for Roosevelt County and northeastern Montana was introduced in the State Senate un-1 dei the co-sponsorship of Koosewlt County Senator Stanley Nees. The measure. Senate Bill No. 100, would provide for transportation | of coal by pipeline carrier and grants the right of eminent domain; to construct pipelines for the purpose. It also would prohibit discrimination of rates and transportation. Under SB 100. amendments are proposed to seven sections of the Revised Codes of Montana. 1947, to broaden coverage to include coal as well as petroleum and its products. G. Thompson New Member Of County Extension Staff Gene Thompson, formerly of, Billings, has recently joined the' Roosevelt County Extension Service at Culbertson The position was left open by the resigna'ion of Rupert Nilson. who left to take up agricultural missionary work. \ Thompson was born in Billings and spent most of his boyhood \ years there, except for two years at Fort Peck in 1935 and 1946 when his father worked on the dam. He graduated from Billings High in 1949 and attended Eastern College at Billings for two years. He was married in 1952. He and Mrs. Thompson have four children. He served in the army during 1SS3-SS and attended Montana State College from 1957 until 1960. w<irking at the carpenter trade to put himself through school. He g;;iduated with a Bachelor of Science degree in Industrial Arts Education in 1960. In 1961-62 he attended MSC doing graduate work with the International Cooperation Center. During that winter he and his family spent three months in a smsJl remote Mexican village studying the ! Commenting on the proposed amendments, Senator Nees said a revolution has just taken place on the energy front. Coal, one of the oldest fuels known, he continued, has a new way of transportation. No longer does it have to be a dirty, bulky substance and expensive to transport. Now it can flow through pipe lines for thousands of miles at very low cost and run out of a nozzle into a boiler. It is called liquid coal. Since we have an abundance of coal in our area, Nees firm'y believes that when industry comes to the area, we will see and hear more of the results of SB 100. The coal is very finely pulver-', ized in a process developed by a Texas firm, then mixed with a fixed percentage by weight of water to form a slurry which can be piped and used without drying. Coals in the Northeastern Montana region are subject to severe weathering, so cannot be held at the surface for long periods, a drawback which the pipeline would minimize, it is believed. GENE THOMPSON inhabitants and their enivornment. Thompson was an instructor in the Worden school prior to accepting the position as Roosevelt county extension agent. LEGISLATIVE NEWS By REP. LORAN CASEY Roosevelt County dents were almost ice-bound here this week. Always good to see someone from home. The Indian Jurisdiction bill passed the House 70-18. The bill included the two amendments I explained last week. At the present time this bill is in the Judiciary Committee in the Senate. I understand a hearing will be held this week so we might know in another week whether or not it is a Jaw. CAPITOL REPORT By STANLEY NEES Senator, Roosevelt County REP. LORAN CASEY It has been a real rough week weather-wise here and almost impossible to get around without chains on your car. The other day, I saw children with their ice-skates on skating on the streets and sidewalks. Three of these just happened to be the Casey kids. Things got a little warm for a few minutes in the House chamber this week. There was a bill introduced about ten days ago to cut the state income tax. Now some representatives on the same side of the aisle have introduced a bill to raise the state income tax. Sometimes it makes a person wonder what people mean when they talk about party politics. In spite of some of these kind of shenanigans there are certainly some very I capable legislators making these new laws, and I mean Democrats1 and Republicans alike. I said I would try to bring you up-to-date on the more controversial bills this week. It is next to impossible to do so however, because none of the co-op tax bills or the Unemployment Compensation bills are out of committee. An opinion on them until they do come out of committee, is difficult because many times amendments are attached to them and that puts the original bill in a little different light. Besides this, it is very doubtful that all bills dealing with � particular subject will come out of committee with a favorable recommendation. Of course if they don't, they usually are not brought on to the floor of the House for debate. There are three co-op tax bills that have been introduced in the House. H.B. 268. provides that net income of cooperative corporations making patronage refunds shall be determined for tax purposes in the same manner as provided under existing federal law or future amendments thereto. H.B. 269 would include patronage refunds in an individcal adjusted gross income as amended by Section 17 of the Federal Revenue Act of 1962. H.B. 105 has as its intent the right to tax 3ny amounts paid or allocated by cooperative organizations as dividends, patronage dividends or otherwise, to the members or patrons of such cooperative except patronage dividends actually paid in cash during the taxable year. The proponents of H.B. 105 say it will put co-ops on the same tax basis as any state corooration. Opponents say it is double taxation. I know many of vou are wondering about legislation concerning education. There are thirty some bills that have been introduced which deal directly with education. The education committee at the present time is working on these so I will wait and try to present an education picture when it is cleared up. at least to a small extent. Several Roosevelt County resi- LEGION ORATORY CONTEST SLATED FOR POPLAR The American Legion District Oratorical contest will be held at the grade school multipurpose room in Poplar at 8 p.m. Thursday.

Michigan State set a football attendance record this season when 77.501 watched the Michigan game at East Lansing. This week I would like to mention three bills which have been introduced in the current legislative session pertaining to children in our state. Statistics have proven that one out of every nine children born require special education. I am pleased to state that some communities with the aid and cooperation of their school districts have provided such facilities. We find that in the caser. of children requiring such services, some are classified as educable, while otbr crs are trainable. / H.B. 122 proposed to provide fpr tuition assistance for special education outside of the State of Montana when adeuqate public facilities did not exist within the state. We are aware of the fact that there are several children within the state who come under this category. Embodied in the bill was b provision whereby the Superintendent of Public Instruc t i o n would set up rules and regulations. The abeve bill failed to survive the House Committee on Education. H.B. 81 has passed the House and is now being considered by the Senate Committee on Education. This bill provides that trainable children be within the responsibility of the public schools, and al low such districts to provide special classes or services for such children. S. B. 96 provides that reimbursements on the part of the state for such programs shall be computed on the basis of counting each child in such special classes as three in average number belonging, and each child according to a schedule to be prepared by the Superintendent of Public Instruction. Consideration is also given in this bill for home tutoring in areas where the above stated services are not available. If H.B. 81 and S.B. 96 become law, Montana can join hands with other states which have long been meeting their obligation in such a manner. The Senate and House Committees are seriously considering this legislation which, if passed, would definitely be a step in the right direction. These committees would welcome your support, as well as any suggestions you may have to offer. Several groups and large classes from different schools within the Helena area have visited the legislature this past week. I wish it were possible for classes from our area to do likewise. I feel confident that the pupils as well as their instructors would find their time well spent. Two Area Visitors At Fort Peck Agency Billings area visitors at the Fort Pock Agency this week are Theodore C. Applebaum and Robert Seitz. Applebaum, area classification officer, is at Poplar making a classification survey. Seitz, Area Real Property management officer, is helping at the Agency in connection with the classification survey and also on realtv business.

BUSHEL Growers who take part In the 1936 feed grain program will receive a price-support payment in addition to the diversion payment and also qualify for regular price-support loans or purchase agreements on barley crops, according to ASC state committee. This new feature is a payment which will be made on the "established" normal production of the acreage planted to the three feed grains in 1963. The same rates will apply throughout the country; they will not vary by counties as the regular loan rates do. Rates for the price-support payments have been established at 14 cents per bushel for barley. Price-support payment will be made to growers who divert at least 20 percent of the farm's feed grain base into a conservation use. Even if the planted crop is destroyed by natural conditions or if part of the feed grain is fed to the animals on the farm the price-support payment will be made just the same. Unlike last year's feed grain program, the regular loan or purchase agreement will be available to 1963 program participants on the farm's entire 1963 production of corn, grain sorghum and barley. It will not be restricted to the normal production of corn, grain sorghum and barley. It will not be restricted to the normal production of the feed grain acreage. The signup under the 1963 feed grain program is now under way in ASCS county offices. Growers have been urged to signup early. The signup ends Marrh 22.

On January 15. M. W. Drazich, i Great Falls, project manager of the Upper Missouri Proects Office of the Bureau of Reclamation met in Wolf Point with Ihe Agricultural Development Committee of the Roosevelt County Planning and Development Council, chaired j by R. I. Penner. Drazich discussed | with Penner and other members, of the committee procedures the | Bureau of Reclamation intends 1c | follow in future investigation? of irrigation and power developments along the Missouri River from Fort Peck Dam to the North Dakota border. The major points covered during the discussions were as fellows: 1. In accordance with Congressional committee directives governing the appropriation of funds for Reclamation investiga t i o n s, future studies by the Bureav would be limited to potential irrigation units on the river bottom lands. The Bureau would proceed only on those units where it received statements indicating that a majority of the landowners want the investigations made. No attempts will be made to reinvestigate the bench lands of the original Missouri Diversion Unit from Wolf Point to Brockton and northeast toward Froid. However, as specifically request- ed by an owner or leasee of bench lands, the Bureau would drill one or two test holes on that person's property to determine ground-water levels, drain-ability of the land, and other sub-surface characteristics. Such information would be valuable to both the cwner and leasee. 2. As part of the investigations, the Bureau intends to establish a system of observation wells to determine the presence and suitability of ground-water for irrigation of the valley lands. 3. Because of possible conflicts between irrigation and any large power developments, the Bureau will defer any power studies to later stages of the investigation. The analysis of power potential within the division would consist only of a review of existing engineering and geologic data to determine costs, benefits and effects on local agriculture and economy. Drazich stressed that the Bureau was anxious to cooperate with the residents and landowners of this area in making these studies and intends to proceed only in accordance with Congressional wishes and the desires of Roosevelt County people.

TAXPAYERS MUST ITEMIZE TRAVEL DEDUCTIONS Taxpayers should not try to approximate their travel and entertainment expenses without any substantiation for the taxable year 1962. the last year that the Cohan rule will remain in force under the 1962 Revenue Act. District Director Frank J Healy warned Internal Revenue Service will employ the same standards to such expenses for the 1962 taxable year as in the past. He said these standards require the taxpayer to prove: 1�That some expense actually was incurred; 2�That the expense claimed is so directly related to the business of the taxpayer that it qualifies as an ordinary and necessary business expense; and 3�That a basis for approximation has been constructed from available evidence both as to the amount and the business purpose of the expenditure claimed. The Cohan rule has been nulli* fied by the 1962 Revenue Act effective January 1, 1963. ending the privilege of taxpayers to approximate travel and entertainment expenses when they did not maintain adequate records in support of the deductions. But the standards set up by Internal Revenue Service to support such deductions. Healy said, placed the burden of proof on the taxpayer. This will continue for the last year of the Cohan rule, the taxable year of 1962. Some parents permit children to check grocery price slips to help them improve their arithmetic for school assignments. Roadside Parks Topic of Tourism Committee Meet Development of roadside parks will be the main topic of discussion at the meeting of the Recreation and Tourism Committee of the Roosevelt County Planning and Improvement Council, slated for Wednesday in the Tribal Building in Poplar. The group will take up means of financing and explore possibilities of rebuilding Fort Union on the North Dakota-Montana state line. Federal funds are said to be available to finance the rebuilding. Aspects of possible development of the 'breaks' between Culbertson and the North Dakota line as a recreation area and tourist attraction will be studied. Roadside park development will also be discussed, it was said, priorities of specific sites and possible financing and construction to be dealt with.
