Icy roads caused several collisions and resulted in extensive damage to cars during the past few days, but no one was seriously injured in any of them. Mrs. Rudolph Hauge and her daugh- ter, Olive Landall suffered from bruises and shock when their car overturned near the Hauge ranch on Big Timber creek about 4:30 Sunday morning. The car hit an icy spot and left the road. It was extensively dam- aged. Olga Kjarmo sustained bruises when the car she was driving was struck by a following car at the Boulder bridge about 11 a. m. Sat- urday. Miss Kjarmo, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Carl Kjarmo of Grey Cliff, said her car went out of control when it struck ice on the highway. A car following, driven by W. C. Williams of Thale, Mont., was unable to stop on the icy road and ran into the Kjarmo car. Both cars were quite badly damaged. Jas. R. Riker of Manchester, Conn., reported to the sheriff's office that his car knocked out three fence posts about 10 miles west of Big Timber when his car skidded and left the highway Saturday. A car driven by Robert B. Sarver of Helena was damaged when it struck the Upper Deer creek bridge Friday about 5:30 p. m. He reported that he was attempting to pass a truck and couldn't see the bridge in time to avoid striking it.

Tool, November, 1947 Lions Club to Ask Big Timber The Lions club at their meeting Tuesday noon voted to petition the Northern Pacific railroad to make Big Timber a flag stop for the new trains Nos. 25 and 26. According to C. J. Elgas, local agent, who spoke to the Lions on the new trains, present regulations pro- vide that "It will not be possible to l stop regardless of reasons." It was pointed out that since this is one of the principal dude ranch sections of the country, the present provisions would place local dude Heart Attack Leon C. Olmstead, pioneer Sweet Grass county resident and prominent civic leader for many years, died at 7:30 o'clock Monday evening at his home. Death was attributed to a heart attack. Mr. Olmstead had un- dergone a major operation three years ago and had been in failing health since. He had suffered a ser- ious heart attack in October last year. Mr. Olmstead had many interests and many vocations. Born in East Windsor, N. Y., on May 15, 1871, he came to Sweet Grass county in 1892 as a school teacher. He was Sweet Grass county's first superintendent of schools and at one time served as county surveyor. Mr. Olmstead was one of the first editors and owners of The Pioneer and also served a term as postmaster here. In 1904 he and Mrs. Olmstead moved to a ranch on Dry creek where they resided until 1939 when they sold and moved to town.

SEARCH UNDER WAY FOR PROPELLER OF ILL-FATED PLANE Billings -- A needle-in-the-haystack search was under way Friday for part of a propeller missing from the C-119 Flying Boxcar transport plane which crashed near here Monday. Eight airmen died in the flaming wreckage. Air force personnel, sheriff's depu-i ties and volunteers were looking for' a 45-inch section of one propeller blade which presumably snapped off in flight. If found, the blade will provide important evidence it/ the current investigation of the crash. The plane's left engine, which rip- oed loose from the wing at 9,000 feet, was found about three miles west of the Roundup road. Aircraft company and air force technicians arrived Thursday to take part in the inquiry. He added that these talks are ex- pected to lead to a decision on when to change an outstanding order ban- ning the draft of 19 year olds.

It was reported that Sweet Grass county dude ranchers will actively participate in attempts to make Big Timber a flag stop. Elgas recalled that the N. P. had planned to put on these new fast trains about five years ago when the Milwaukee scheduled its fast trains, but that the company did not want to sacrifice safety for speed. In the meantime, he said, the N. P. has spent millions of dollars improv- ing its road bed, including the new welded rail sections, and that now its system was in a position to operate at the increased speed with the same safety. The trains, 25 and 26, now stop only where it is necessary to change train crews. In referring to the prospects of Big Timber getting a flag stop, Elgas said he of course favored it. How- ever, he said other towns along the way would then probably want a stop also. The Northern Pacific, Mr. Elgas said, has ordered 16 new dome cars for the new trains, but that delivery was not expected for 16 or 18 months. C. W. Haas reported that plans are underway for relocating highway 10 between here and Springdale. He said a state engineer told him this week it was planned to straighten out some of the curves and eliminate the "dips" which have caused many traffic accidents on that stretch of road. A. C. McDonald showed a colored movie, "Montana and the Skies,'* which showed the airplane's part in the economy of the state. Besides beautiful scenes from all parts of Montana, the film showed how the airplane was used---crop dusting, smoke jumping, airlines, ranch use, etc. Here Is the Inauguration of the new Northern Pacific trains 25 and 26 has resulted in new and poorer mail schedules for Big Timber. The new trains do not pick up or deliver any parcel post here; all of this mail must be in the postoffice by 5:45 p. m. since only trains 1 and 2 will handle it. Following are the schedules: Makeup for train No. 1---6:00 a. m. Makeup for train No. 2--5.45 p. m. Makeup for train No. 25 (first class mail only)--ll:20 a. m. Makeup for train No. 26 (first class only)--ll:00 a. m. (Odd numbered trains are west- bound, even eastbound.) Annual Junior Play To be Given Dec. 3-4 The annual junior class play will be presented next Wednesday and Thursday nights, December 3-4, at the high school auditorium, under the direction of Mervin Wertz. "Hillbilly Weddin' " is the title of this year's production. The play involves a family which is more interested in getting the daughters "married off," taking care of rattlesnakes, giving "Cecile" a bath and preventing a feud, than with conditions of house and farm. The cast includes David Drivdahl, Barbara Van Cleve, Teresa Drivdahl, Dolores Yost, Darlene McCauley, Vera Lowe, Janiee Engle, Doris Strand, Lloyd Neste, Bruce Marlow, Tack Van Cleve, Joan Westre, Jack Myers and Raymond Prevost. These plays always draw big crowds and the sponsors this year promise plenty of laughs and thrills. Curtain time is 8 o'clock. Gun Club to Make Recommendations For Search Measure The Big Timber Rod and Gun club l at a meeting Friday night went on record favoring a measure to provide for searching cars at game checking stations, and will also ask the legi- lature to make it unlawful for ve- hicle to be driven more than 60 feet off private farm roads. There was considerable discussion on the doe season but no definite ac- tion taken. A 30-day doe season was suggested by one rancher, with pos- sibly permit hunting. Deputy Game Warden J. F. Burke represented the fish and game de- partment at the meeting, which was presided over by Ed Hower. Mrs. Lars Messing is receiving a gold pin for 10 years service as a 4-H club leader. Wayne Faw is holding the certificate and silver pin which he was awarded for five years service as leader. Miss Geraldine Finn, assistant 4-H club state leader from Bozeman, made the presentations.
