For the benefit of the gener;.J public, the Poplar Chamber of Commerce would like to clarify its position in regards to this road and we believe that we can best do this by quoting our letter of March 9. 1963 to the Montana Highway Commission. This letter was requestsed by the board of directors, drafted by the Chamber secretary and signed by th/i Chamber preseident. It reads: / Montana State Highway Commission, State Highway Department, Helena, Montana Gentlemen: The Poplar Chamber of Commerce has during recent years taken a neutral stand in the issues involved concerning the proposed routing of the new Poplar-Brockton road. We took this stand because it was our contention that the Highway Commission is capable of determining the route selection which will be the most beneficial to the greatest number of people, and also be economically justifiable During this time or our neutrality, individuals or small groups of individuals from both sides of the issue have protested so violently to proposals that no decision was reached by the Highway Commission. Oftentimes persons involved in these protests were not residents of the area or even of Roos-velt County. We do not feel that any requests or protests from such sources deserve other than nominal consideration. In an effort to help the Highway Commission reach a decision cn this rocd. we feel that we must now take a stand as favoring one route selection over the other. Our decision and stand is this: 1. As the existing road between Poplar and Brockton is in such poor condition, our first and foremost concern is in seeing new construction irregardless of routing selection. 2. We feel that the South routing for this road will be one which will provide the most benefit to the most people and must therefore favor this South route. We believe that we are representative of these people. 3. We will abide by any decision rendered by the Highway Commission and will help in any way possible towards the furtherance of the route selected. We urge the Highway Commission to make an early decision and program this road accordingly in order that the project can be completed at the earliest possible date-Very truly yours, Thomas Malmend. President Poplar Chamber of Commerce In addition to the above, the Poplar Chamber believed that the selection of either of the south 'routings would present the least chance of the city of Poplar being by-passed in future road construction. Also, the selection of the south routing would not distract or endanger the possibility of obtaining a bridge across the Missouri river in future years. As a follow up on our letter of March 9. a petition was sent to the Montana Highway Commission bearing the names of over 250 residents of this area who also believed the southernmost route selection to be the one which would be the most beneficial to the most people. On March 25. 1983 the Highway Commission announced that they had designated the middle route selection to be used in construction of this new road. Again the accusations and protests have started and again they involve individuals who spend little actual time in our county. Let us hope that the Montana Highway Commission will recognize the absurdity of this needless publicity and will begin construction at the earliest possible date. Again the Poplar Chamber of Commerce would have preferred the southernmost route. However, we have pledged ourselves to abide by any decision rendered by the Highway Commission. We will keep our pledge. BREAKFAST SCHEDULED BY AL AUXILIARY The American Legion Auxiliary will be serving breakfasts to order Sunday morning from 9:00 to 1:00 Proceeds will be used by the Auxiliary to send Cherry Reid and Donna Pentz to Montana Girls , State.

FAY CRUSCH TO CO-OPERATE IN FEED RESEARCH A calf creep-feeding research demonstration on the Fay Crusch ranch 14 miles north of Bainville has been lined up for this summer. Assisting Crusch with this j demonstration will be the Roosevelt County Extension staif, N. A. Jacobsen, livestock specialist from Montana State College, Bozeman. and commercial concerns, including Pacific Vegetable Oil. There has been a shortage of research information on calf creep feeding in this area, according to Don Hunter, extension agent. A percentage of the stockmen are feeding calves in this manner but do not know whether or not the j added gain in weight profitably | offsets the cost of the extra feed- I ing program. | The research demonstration on the Crusch ranch will involve 201 to 30 range calves in three sepa- i rate pastures. Two of the pastures | will be provided with creeps containing different kinds of feed and j the third will contain none. The calves will be weighed at the time the supplement feeding program is begun and again at weaning time, about October 15. The cattle will be carefully randomized so that no particular type of stock will be consigned to each pasture The groups involved in setting up the program will meet soon to work out details and the creep feeding demonstration will begin in July. Scouts Sell Daffodils Saturday Daffodils will blossom throughout the city of Poplar Saturday. April 13 when the Girl Scouts and Brownies make their fourth annual daffodil drive. Members of the Brownie and Girl Scout troops will sell the daffodils beginning in the morning. Public donations for the daffodils help support the Girl Scout movement in Poplar, and all proceeds will go toward various troop activities, the Girl Scout Council, and especially toward the purchasing of evergreens for the Community hospital. Many of the flowes, shrubs, and trees at the Hospital have been purchased by the Brownies and Girl Scouts from proceeds received during other Daffodil drives.

Kemp, chairman of the Roosevelt County Chapter of the National Foundation, and chairman of the Roosevelt County March of Dimes campaign completed his report for the 1963 drive. This year the campaign was conducted by the community chairmen whose names are indicated; the amount of contributions received by each community chairman is also shown. Wolf Point.

Mrs. Urdahl. $361.04; Total for Roosevelt County � $2.105.33 Chairman Kemp remitted 25 per cent of the proceeds to The Medical Scientific Research Fund. The National Foundation. New York City. It will be noted that the first 25 per cent of contributions is definitely ear-marked for scientific research; the remainder of the money is divided equally between the National Pr>un'!a'.i'>n and local chapters for patiei i care and other necessary expenses Between 1938 and 1958 the local chapter had many polio patients under care. Kemp said. The 50 per cent of the annual donations which was retained here was not sufficient to provide patient care from local chapter funds The chapter asked for advance of funds from the National Foundation Headquarters in order to be able Same Premium Set For 1962 Wheat in Reseat Program Resealed 1962-crop wheat with premium valuations based on sedimentation test will carry the same premium for settlement of loans as it had at the time the loan was originally made, the Roosevelt County Agricultural Stabilization and Conservation Service office has been advised. This applies to farm-stored hard red winter and hard spring wheats of the 1962 crop. Application to re-seal 1962-crop wheat now under loan or purchase agreement should be made to the Roosevelt County ASCS Office. Producers will not be responsible for any decline in sedimentation values during the period of re-seal storage in return for their agreement to keep this wheat binned separately the ASCS said. This is the first crop of wheat on which sedimentation values have been used as the basis for premium under the price support program. Continued farm storage of premium wheat, by preserving the identity of lots within the various sedimentation ranges, will enable CCC to arrange for eventual disposition of this premium wheat advantageously. The 1962 wheat price support loans mature March 31 and farmers are delivering wheat in settlement of loans. In the settlement period, value of sedimentation-premium wheat delivered in settlement of loans will be based on sedimentation value at the time of delivery.

During this period the chapter was advanced a total of $14.715 by the National Foundation, according to Kemp. The chapter will never be "billed'' for repayment of the above advances The money was remitted to The National Foundation and the National Foundation in turn, used money received from other county chapters throughout the United States to help the Roosevelt County Chapter when commitments for patient care were in excess of available funds. Fortunately, polio incidence has been very low in Roosevelt County for the past five year. Kemp noted However, many communities have not been so fortunate, so it is very probable that a small part of the money given to The March of Dimes not retained locally, has been used to provide care for polio victims, and for birth defects in Other parts of the United States. It is hoped that through the use of polio vaccine this dread disease may be wiped out completely. Foundation funds not needed lor polio victims are used to provide care and treatment for birth defects and research. The cost of care of a polio oatient is greater than all but very few can afford to pay. The Roosevelt County Chapter has had experience with 1 several very "costly" cases. Kemp said, one of which cost the chapter almost $9.000 This patient <and the cost for his care l was even-i totally transferred to another coun-; ty ill Montana when the parents of the child moved. Patient care for that child was then continued in the county of new residence On behalf of the National Foundation and the Roosevelt County Chapter Kemp expressed thanks, first, to the people of Roosevelt County for their generosity; next ! to the community chairmen, and '� the many un-named persons who assisted them. On March 1. John C. Witte resigned as chapter treasurer, an office he had held from Jan. 1. 1950. a period of thirteen i years and two months. He received no compensation whatsoever for his services. Kemp pointed out. During the period he received, disbursed and accounted for all funds of The March of Dimes and the Roosevelt County Chapter. "To ] him I want to say. publicly, on be-half of the Natio.ial Foundation and the chapter: Thank you John, for a job well done." Kemp stated. H. H. Arndt has been appointed to ' succeed Witte as March of Dimes . and Chapter treasurer, and he is now receiving, disbursing and ac-counting for March of Dimes and | chapter funds. Since both Witte ; and Arndt had a part in the 1963 March of Dimes campaign, a sin-cere "thank you. treasurers." is in ' order for both men. Kemp concluded.
