Strongest metal support to wood joint.

I am trying to make the strongest screwed-in joint possible between metal drapery supports and a 1 x 10 pine board. The 1 x 10 (100 long) board will be screwed into the 16 on-center wall studs / dry wall. The three (3) metal drapery supports will be screwed into the pine board at the ends and at the center where there are no wall studs. The actual thickness of my pine board is inches. What screws should I use? Should I bolt the metal support through the board thickness using washers and nuts? Should I use glue? If so, what type? Please help. Thank you.

Strongest metal support to wood joint.

If the board is 3/4" thick, I'd use a 1"x 12 or 1"x14 wood screw. There should be more supports for an 8' 4" rod, in my opinion.
