Peterson said it is easier for near- by Scouts to attend, so they are given a registration advantage. When the Jamboree is held in Cali- fornia or Valley Forge, he said, troops in that area get the regis- tration advantage. Approximately 50,0fl0 boys will set up camp in 30,000 tents at the Jamboree. The camp will be divided into 38 sections, or individual tent towns of i,400 Scouts. Peterson said he would be in charge of the commissary in one of the sections and would be as- sisted by Mal Olson, Bismarck, council Jamboree chairman, and Richard P. Williams, Linton. Dr. C. A. Arneson will be one of the doctors, probably in the same section. Peterson said. Each section will have five doctors at all times to take care of the routine ills of 1,400 boys. In addition, each provisional troop will have scoutmasters and other adult leadership. To qualify, a boy must have pass- ed his 12th birthday by Jan. l, 1960. The $219 tab includes all meals gear, uniforms, pocket money and must take a health examination. Peterson said the Missouri Valley Council was the only council in Region 10 which plans to fly both ways, although at least one other council plans to take a bus to Color- ado Springs and fly home. Frontier Makes Flight Changes Effective in '60 Frontier Airlines has announced it is designating Dickinson as ~ stop on a north-south route betwee~t Bismarck and Rapid City and in- cluding a stop at Sidney, Mont on a new route between Great Falls and Williston. Sidney was extended for a five- year period on a segment of the marck by way of Williston. Wolf Point was removed from Frontier's segment route between Billings and Bismarck, but will con- tinue to receive service on Frontier's segment route across norther ~ rou.~e between Bi]~lings and B~s- Vista Colo on Feb. 4 on the basis of a "use it or lose it" formula approved by the civil aeronautics beard. The CAB in Washington author- ized the suspension of service on the grounds none of the points has averaged five passengers a day. The board extended Frontier's au- ority for five years at Gunnison, Colo and Miles City, Mont.; at Rawlings Wyo on Frontier's north- south Route 77 between Chevenne and Casper, Woy and at Sidney, Mont and Wiltiston, N. D. The CAB said that although these cities did not generate a traffic minimum of five passengers a day, unusual circumstances warrantea the renewal of each. The CAB found no reason for re- newal, and therefore ordered elimination of service, at Rawlins on Route 5 and 6, at Wolf Point, Mont on Route 9, and at Kem- merer and Greybull, Wyo Clif- ton-Morenci Mounte Vista, and Dickinson. Rawlins will continue to be serv- ed on Route 7, and Wolf Point re- mains, with Sidney, on Frontier's "high line" Route 15 between Wil- listen and Great Falls Mont. Route 5 extends east-west be- ween Casper and Rock Springs, Wyo. Route 6 parallels Route 7 be- tween Cheyenne and Casper. Of the suspensions the CAB said "These points did not average five enplanings a day and no unusual or compelling circumstances are found to warrant renewal." The boards ruling take effect Feb. 4. STATE ACCEPTANCE REPORTS CREDIT SURVEY State Acceptance corp of Bis- marck surveyed 96 automobile and implement dealers in North Dakota and found that 74 per cent of all autos and 80 per cent of all machi- nery is being financed through dealers. The dealers estimated t h at another 10 per cent are financing, but through other methods This means that perhaps 84 per cent of 1he cars and 90 per cent of the ix- plements are being bought on cred- it in North Dakota. --EN- STRAMrI~ REPORTS SUCCESSFUL SUMMER Officials of the Northern Stra- mite Corporation, manufacturers of a construction board from wheat straw, reported a profitable sum- mer campaign.
