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.

Broadway Phone 9-4185 NOW SHOWING January 23, 1959 EMC OE Page 5 Tournament Bound Hilaro Postpones Pro-Career for College Training Local fight fans who hope to see a Billings boxer capture the middle- weight division crown in the 8th Annual Midland Empire Golden Gloves Tournament can best place their hopes on the strong right arm of Raymond Hilario, an aggressive slugging styl- ist, who stacks up as the number one prospect for middleweight laurels in the coming matches. Ray is majoring in economics at Eastern. The easy-going, well-liked freshman strikes many of his less informed fellow students as more likely to be found at a serious game of chess than in the middle of a slug- fest. Not so, according to the rec- ords. The dark - haired, 19 - year - old power puncher was District A.A.U. lightweight champion in 1954. He moved to the welterweight division in 1955, winning Montana's State A. A. U. crown. In 1956, as many local fans will remember—Ray put on an outstanding performance in the Golden Gloves tournament only to be deprived of boxing in the finals because of a severely cut lip. Ray has been a participant in more than 35 amateur fights. The Eastern Drops Dogs, 83-79 Eastern's Yellowjackets, who had been turning to pumpkins in the dying minutes of some of their open- ing games this season, turned the Cinderella ending inside out last Tuesday night, as the vastly im- proved 'Jackets handed the league leading Western Montana Bulldogs the pumpkin, seeds and all, in ex- change for a thrilling 83 to 79 con- ference victory. Gene Espeland and Bob McWil- liams were Eastern's big guns Gene hit for 28 points, followed by Mc- Williams with a total of 23. highlight of Ray's young career came last February, when he battled his way to the Middleweight Champion- ship in the Los Angeles Golden Gloves Tournament. He was defeated in the Pacific Coast Regionals by Ed Hickman, 1958 P.C.R. middleweight crown. GRANDVIEW SERVICENTER 3020 Grandview Blvd. Just south of the Administration Building
