Errant of the Letbbndge Trade Board, was In the chair Fri- day night. Attended by distinguished citi- zens and men from all walks of life, the meeting drew delegates from throughout Alberta and Mon- tana and. as it ended, was describ- ed as the most successful and frien- dly meeting ever held by people of turo neighboring countries. Among the Montana visitors was Senator George Wilson of Shelby. All visit- ing guests were introduced at a ban- quet meeting ia the Marquis Hotel Friday evening.

Great Falls farmer and manager of the North Montana State Fair, stressed the value of highways, tourist trade and aviation to Al- berta, and his state. He explained that people in Great Falls and northern Montana looked forward with much zest to prospects of improved and increased air trans- portation from their areas into Al- berta and. discussing the progress of aviation. Mr. Thuroer added: "We are truly coming into a new- age of air transportation air freight transportation will become a. reality. This can mean only one new age of business and friendly relations." Mr. Thurber regarded the build- ing cf highways as sn investment which would return dividends to communities and the nation at large and "it never was more Im- portant than now that "we build Rnnri Rnark ALL-OUT CLOTHING bUUU RUdUb COLLECTION MONDAY OPEN SUNDAY 7 to 9 p.m, McCAFFREVS DRUG STORES 331-Sth St. 5. 414-13th St. N.

He explained thai the TT.S. high- Tray appropriation icr the next i tiiree Years amounts to Trhicn'is to be distributed to the in- dividual states on condition they match appropriations- In the case of Montana, that state is to receive from the federal treasury for highway construction, the fed- eral government paying 56 per cent of the cesis and the state 44 per cent- Five-eighths of the money is to be spent oa mala highways and tne balance on secondary roads. Construction of roads by the fed- eral government alone in forest re- serves and paries raise the Uiree-vear outlay for Montana highways and roads to "Gas Tax Pays Cost The state's share of costs, explain- ed Mr. Thurber, is derived entirely from the five cents a gallon tax on gasoline. Mr. Thurber added that Montana has 5.350 miles of main highway, of which less thaa 600 miles is un- improved. Indications are, he continued, that Alberta and Montana this year will enjoy the most lucrative tourist trade in history.
