Superintendent Lois Williams explains that the doctors' office is open from 9 a. m. to 5 p. m. week days and from 9 a. m. until noon on Satur- days. At all other hours, when tha~ number is dialed it is diverted through the hospital. "When you dial and someone answers, 'hospital,' please extend us the courtesy of not just hang- ing up and then dialing the same nu~rbex," MAss Willi~ns asks.

The hospital personnel will be able to get a doctor on call at any time. $87,000 Allocated For Airport Here The Federal Aviation Admini- stration has allocated $587,000 in matching funds to the state of Montana under the fiscal year 1968 federal airport program, which includes $87,000.57 for the Big Timber city-county airport, according to a telegram received by The Pioneer from Senator Mike Mansfield.

To everyone who visited the show, the variety and beauty of the flowers grown in the com- munity in such a short season was a revelation. From the tiny mini- atures to the largest blossoms, from the wild flowers to the home and garden variety, each display was worthy of contem- plation. Even the young folks had their display of flowers. Besides the natural hospitality of a room full of flowers, the women of the club offered a tempting variety of cookies and hot coffee to the many visitors who entered the doors. The sponsors commented that by the time the next year's show time rolls around, they hope that everyone interested in plants and flowers will make an effort to participate.
