F.arth from this street is being hauled to form a new road to the railroad yards. The present road will be closed when the paving job is complete. The first step in the project will be the removing of a considerable amount of diit to bring the various streets to the proper grade so that when the paving is finally in place there will be adequate drainage. The new paving is expected to provide surface drainage for nearly all streets and do away with many of the catch basins now in use. The earth moving machinery is attracting a lot of attention and a large number of spectators were on hand to watch the project get under way. City officials have issued a warning to parents to keep small children away from the places where construction is in progress. It is hard for the operators of these ponderuos earth moving machines to do their work and watch out for the children. A little watchfulnes on the part of parents may prevent a serious if not tragic accident. The Poplar Junior Legion Baseball team will swing into action Sunday.

BROCKTON AREA HARD HIT BY HEAVY RAINS The past week has been one of heavy rains in this area with the Brockton community being particularly hard hit. Monday night saw heavy rainfall all over the area, but in Brockton and north the Monday evening downpour was reported to have exceeded 4 inches in about two hours. Both east and west of Brockton water was running over Highway 2. Water rolled down off the hills and over the highway halting traffic for a short time. The heavy rain did considerable damage to seeded wheat fields. In some cases grain was washed out and in other places it was covered with mud washed from the hills and coulees. North in the Poplar oil field area bridges were washed out and roads damaged by the heavy rain. Planting already delayed by wet ground in the low places was again set back and many low fields had water standing in them Tuesday. While the rain was much heavier to the north and east, in Poplar 1.46 inches were received. The temperatures were up during the past week and Sunday in Poplar was a real summer day with a high official reading of 86 degrees. The week's weather for Poplar was reported as follows: Max. Min. Prec. April 28 ............ 55 36 .00 April 29 ............ 78 30 .00 April 30 ............ 75 37 .00 May 1 ............ 86 42 .00 May 2 ........ 79 49 .00 May 3 ............ 54 35 1.45 May 4 ............ 63 34 .01 Saddle Club to Meet The Poplar Saddle Club will meet May 6 at 8 o'clock p.m. at the usual place. SERIES TO END The fourth and final immunization day sponsored by the Poplar Lions club will be held Saturday. May 7. at the Poplar Armory. Free immunizations and vaccinations will be given from 10 a.m. until noon and from 1 to 4 p.m. The free immunizations will provide protection against diptheria. whooping cough and tetanus, and vaccinations for smallpox are also included. The program was provided mainly for pre-school and grade school children in the Poplar school dis-trick However, high school children, who have been previously immunized against one of the four diseases, may receive booster shots or vaccinations Saturday without charge. The cummitte strongly urges parents who have started their children on the series of shots to attend the clinic Saturday and get their final shots, or if they arc unable to be present Saturday, they should make sure the shots are comnleted by the family doctor. A series of three shots arc required to provide full scale immunity for three years against diptheria. whooping cough and tetanus. One successful vaccination for smallpox is all that is required. Booster shots are required every three to four years until adulthood is reached to keep the immunity at an effective level of protection. PROJECT FOR POPLAR ASSURED A project to build 10 to 15 new homes in Poplar during the coming summer now seems assured according to Jack Smith of Glen-dive who is handling the sales. The construction will be done by F. A. Ripley. Inc.. of Billings. The big problem in building homes in Poplar has been the securing of mortgage money to finance the homes that need to be built. This financing has been arranged by Mr. Ripley through the Voluntary Home Mortgage Credit Program. Under this program financing is provided only on homes which are purchased before construction starts. Mr. and Mrs. Smith and Mr. Ripley were in Poplar Wednesday of this week and completed transactions on several homes. They will be in Poplar again Wednesday of next week, but it will be necessary to complete the sales on the project next week in order that construction may be completed this summer. The Ripley firm hopes to start work early in June and plans to complete the houses by September 1. The Ripley firm, which has built a great many homes in Glendive, Billings and many smaller towns in the area, plans to construct about 150 homes this year. Terms being offered in this pro-ject which meet with FHA and | VA financing require from 10 to 15 percent down and where the person owns his own lot. this can be used to cover a large part of the down payment. The Ripley firm offers houses as low as $9.500 and terms extend for as much as 25 years. Houses warranted for one year against any defect in workmanship and materials. The labor for the construction project will be secured locally as far as possible according to Mr. Ripley. He said that not only would all possbile local labor be employed, but that his company will offer local contractors a chance to bid on part of the construction as sub-contractors. Contracts for electric wiring, plumbing, cement work, roofing, and dirt moving are among the projects to be offered to local contractors. Polio Vaccination Plans Soon Ready Mrs. O. L. Stenslie. Roosevelt County Nurse, reports that complete- schedules and information on the coming Salk polio vaccinations is expected to be ready by next week. GAME WARDENS BEGIN PHEASANT CROW COUNTING Pheasant crowing counts will start May I in all Montana pheasant country, said William Berfe-son, upland bird biologist. Montana Fish and Game Department. The count will continue through May 31. Crow counts will be taken by state game wardens working with seven district biologists in all irrigated and bcnchland areas, typical pheasant habitat. Bergeson said. The men will drive assigned routes, about 20 miles in length over secondary roads in 37 counties. The drivers will stop at I-mile intervals on the route, get out of the car at each stop, count all calls for 2 minutes, drive on a mile, and repeat the proceedure to the end of the route. Bergeson explained. Each route will be covered on an average of 4 times in a season. Crow counts arc based on the known fact that male pheasants crow at regular intervals, said Bergeson. and the number of roosters in an area can be counted by call heard during the two-minute periods, one-half hour before and one hour after sunrise. When results of the crowing counts have been tabulated, an index of the compiled information, when compared to indices from previous years, will give biologists an idea of the population trends for the coming year. The crow counts, sex ratios and brood information are used as the basis for recommendations for the fall hunting seasons. House Action to Save Money for County Schools Action in the House of Representatives has cancelled several thousands of dollars in debts owed the federal government by school districts In Roosevelt county according to word received from Congressman Lee Metcalf. In 1935 the government loaned a total of $657.939 to certain school districts for construction purposes. These districts were those in which there was a large amount of tax-free Indian lands. Under the terms of the loan the school districts were to pay this back over a perold of 30 years by having � the government withhold a part of the tuition payments for the education of Indian children. The original bill on the subject was introduced in the House by Congresman Orvin Fjare of Montana and provided for canceling the outstanding debt and paying back to the districts the money already paid. However, Fjare's bill was put aside in favor of the bill which stopped future payments. The action taken by the House, if it becomes law would mean a saving of $10.833 to the Poplar school district; $21.666 to the Wolf Point school district; $17.333 to Brockton; $10.838 to Frazer: and various other districts in the state for total of $295.572. NEW POPLAR CITY COUNCIL TAKES OFFICE The Poplar city council met Monday evening. May 2. and seated the newly-elected council for the coming two years Afrer the old council was called to order, they passed on the qqualifications of the newly-elected members and declared Robert Voorhees and Otis Dahl to be seated in the west ward and Chris Gorder in the east ward. Mayor J. M, Nass was also seated is mayor. After the new council took office, they declared a vacancy to exist in the east ward since Sig Thompson, who was duly elected in that ward, could not qualify. The first item of business for the new council was allowing and ordering payment of bills against the city. Mayor Nass then made the following appoin-ments which were approved by the council: Donald Cole, city clerk and attorney; Reid Gwin. chief of police; Floran Martin, fire chief and water commissioner; and Fred Rettig. street commissioner. The latter appointment carried a raise in salary of $25 per month over the previous j-ear. The members of the council elected Otis Dahl president of the council. The president acts in the absence of the mayor. After the general session the mayor called a closed session of the council for a conference with Chief Reid Gwin on police department matters.

The proposed garbage collection ordinance worked out by the committee was presented and members discussed the various provisions. After receiving suggestions from the floor the committee chairman. Dr. Samuel Gullo. called another meeting to iron out some of the objections and present a f.nal ordinance draft at the next meeting. Some discussion was held on taking care of the deficit for the dinner dance and it was finally decided to take the mone> from club funds. The "guessing game" conducted the previous week by Peder Moe on the school budget was checked against official budget figures and Harold Hunt was found to be the closest to the correct total of $278.-741 Since Harold's guess was within $1.000 of the correct budget. Mr. Moe presented a check for $100 to the Poplar Hospital fund. He then conducted another guessing contest on items in the budget, but no one same close enough to the correct answer to win any additional cash for the hospital.. The guessing con-trst provoked considerable discus-sion of school cost, and the results attained, both during the mee'ing and afterwards Tuesday evening. May 10 was set as one of the official par* clean-up nights. Any club member who fails to take part in at least one of the two clean-up nights will have to pay $5 into the club treasury.

NEW SANITARY REQUIREMENTS SET ON WHEAT Montana wheat growers are advised by Leo S. Kolstad. State Agricultural Stabilization and Conservation administration officer, that 1955 wheat, to be eligible for price support, must meet the new minimum sanitary requirements of the Federal Pure Food and Drug Administration. As previously announced, similar minimum standards also apply to 1954 wheat to be eligible for resealing under the loan program. Kolstad points out that with rare exceptions, wheat produced and placed under loan in this state in the past has been of a purity and quality to easily qualify under the new regulations. He calls attention to the new requirement for loans primarily as an incentive for farmers to see that similar and even greater care will be extended to stored wheat in the future. Farmers planning to ready old storage space in time for the 1955 wheat crop are urged to be particularly careful about cleaning out the structure and preparing it for the new wheat. Where there are evidences of insects the storage space should be sprayed. If there are breaks or openings where birds or rodents can enter, they should be repaired or screened over. All such storage should be located where it is high and dry and where the drainage is good. New structures should be set up with all requirements for loan eligibility in mind. Farmers are reminded that, if the 1955 crop wheat is to be eligible for price support, besides meeting the new sanitary requirements, wheat allotments must be complied with and the wheat must grade No. 3 or better. Wheat grading No. 4 or 5 for test weight only or because it contains durum or red durum, is also eligible. DOLLY AKERS' TRESPASS CASE INTO COURT A $4.200 damage action stemming from aliened trespass on lands in Roosevelt County by oil ilrilling crews has been transferred to Federal District Court in Great Falls. The action was brought by John J. and Dolly Akers against the Murphy Corp. and C. H. Murphy Jr., and originally was filed in Lewis and Clark County District Court at Helena. There Judge George W. Padbury Jr. April 23 ordered the defendants to show cause May 23 why they should not be enjoined from trespass on the Akers lands. The Akers ask the $4.200 on ten counts for damage to nn irrigation diversion dam in Little Poplar Creek, damage to irrigation ditches, damage to crop lands, damage to hay lands and loss of productivity of the lands. According to the complaint, the Murphy employees have been crossing the Akers lands to gain access to a producing oil well and again crossing their lands to go from the producer to another well site.
