What is this?
Optical character recognition (OCR) is an automated process that converts a digital image containing numbers and letters into computer-readable numbers and letters. The search engine used on this web site searches OCR-generated text for the word or phrase you are looking for. Please note that OCR is not 100 percent accurate. If the original image is blurry, has extraneous marks, or contains ornate font styles or very small text, the OCR process will produce nonsense characters, extraneous spaces, and other errors, such as those you may see on this page. In addition, the OCR process cannot interpret images and may ignore them or render them as strings of nonsense characters. Despite these drawbacks, OCR remains a powerful tool for making newspaper pages accessible by searching.

Do You Want To Be A Killer? \Do you want to kill me or at least be the cause of an accident? Just because I may be only half as tall as you are and have to walk, because I'm not old enough to have a car—this is really no reason.\ The kids of the Lab school are really worried and dread your four-wheeled monsters when you drive in high speed from Rim- rock Road and try to find a park- ing place beside the gym. Maybe you just scare a bunch of chil- dren when you hurry in order to be on time for your next class or hurry for no reason at all, but think for a minute what may happen! Don't you shudder at the mere thought of it? You have to admit that it is worthwhile and also your duty to be careful if it even means get- ting up or starting a few minutes earlier. So if you are ready to take the turn from Rimrock Road, look out for the little patrolmen. A fifth grader is stationed up at the corner, a fourth grader at the bus stop and a third grader at the \Chain the driveway that leads to the Lab school. They may give you signals by blowing their whistles and by holding up their hands. Pay attention; Stop, Look and Listen!
