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.

•ItSMlS g r \ y r r i g : / i - SPORTSCAST -Ken Payton- Last Tuesday the LCHS football team turned in their uni­ forms after a short and hectic season of three games. This year they were not quite- the match for Libby, Whitefish, and Columbia Palls. Next year? Who knows? Maybe All-State? The next thing on my list this year is basketball. W e ’ve all been waiting for it and ■now that it is here, if the team will work hard, play hard, and keep on playing hard, and working hard we' 11 come in a little further up on the list . than lastyea r . Also *the team\“needs’ school' support to win games. It sure feels w e l l to hear your school cheer for you. It depends on not only the play­ er to win games, but on the plain ordinary student. This year for basket­ ball there are six returning lettermen: Duane Meuli, Art Purdy, Robert McKenzie, Stub Johnson, Tommy Withy- combe, and Ted Harvey. It also has been call­ ed to my attention that Billy Gwynn, in the Navy now, and a three year letterman will be coming home for good soon, and may­ be here for the first game. That will give' the coach seven men to choose from for his first team. From, the ' • ‘ I d T b k ' g ’ t r e * ' the- guys- in* the gym at noon and seventh and ’ eighth periods the coach won’t have much to teach ’em. INTERCLASS TOURT-TAT WITTS In a few weeks LCHS will again have the In­ terclass Tournament of basketball. The games will be played in the gym at a time not de­ cided upon yet. The juniors are the favorite, with the seniors running a-close second. mJ , r. V j R G R i t N - • ________ Page 3 The Columbia Falls Wildcats achieved their first victory of the season 32-0, over a smaller, less exper­ ienced Eureka team. Fighting hard, the Lions held the bulky Falls team to a 6-0 half time score. The second half turned the trick as the victors poured in able substi­ tutes to rest a weary first string. The Eu­ reka team, handicapped by a shortage of ex- peri e nc e d s ub s t i t ut e s tried fruitlessly to overcome the deter­ mined Columbia Falls boys, but could not stop the Wildcats from crossing the goal line four times in the last ha If. Los Angelas Hunters G e t T h e i r Game From the city of Los Angeles came two eager hunters to the Rexford area in hopes of bag­ ging a couple of these big'Montana bucks.Sun­ day, October 13, Dar­ rell Weed, and Hal Trueblood arrived at the town of Rexford. The hunters are cou­ sins- of Mrs. George Rich, and are staying at the Rich home in Rexford. Both men being good hunters, excellent shots have made good. There are now two less bucks in Montana, which can be credited to. the Sunshine State hunter s. The weary football team of LCHS turned in their battered equip­ ment Tuesday and now are taking a rest. As basketball starts soon the boys will not be idle long. LCHS us­ ually schedules games with Poison, Big Fork-, Columbia Falls, Ronan, Libby, Troy and Fernie. Coach Buckley plans to arrange a schedule of at least 20 games, half to be in the home gym. LC Club Initiation Football season ends with the turning in of all equipment. Four­ teen of the boys won letters and seven will probably be initiated into the \LC” Club. Within the coming week, students of LCHS will notice boys wear­ ing big cloth ties, walking up and down stairs backwards and other silly stunts. The boys who will be ’’lucky” to find them­ selves in a predica­ ment such as this are Gale Holder, Dale Hol­ der, Jim Peltier, Leo Peltier, Eugene John­ son, Don DeShazer, and Orvil Richards. Don’t worry about these boya They aren't going cra­ zy. They are merely in the process of be­ ing initiated into the \LC” Club. FOR i SATISFACTION!^ trade at *> / , MAC'S MARKET \ N
