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.

The Bulldogs’ lone First-team selection was Mike Dryden, the gritty sophomore linebacker from Missoula. Voted to second-team posts were defensive tackle Rich Hucke, 6-5, 235-pound sophomore from Fallon, Nev., and defensive back Brad Vining, the talented 175-pound junior from Great Falls who has now garnered all-league laurels three straight years. Two Western standouts failed to make the elite list by the barest of margins—one vote each. Those near misses were recorded by Terry Graham, the elusive sophomore split end from Dillon, and Gary Lanners, a rugged second-year offensive guard from Great Falls. Dryden, one of the top vote- getters among linebackers, compiled an impressive array of season statistics. Relatively small at 5-11 and 195, he played the ball to perfection, recording 75 unassisted tackles, 106 assists and five pass interceDtions. .. -W; fill ss ‘tór-vv MIKE DRYDEN PETERSON DRUG Revlon and M a x Factor Cosm etics A m e rican G reeting Posters MONTANA MOTOR SU P P L Y AUTO PARTS ACCESSORIES Straight Shootin' Sound 25 E.

In a recent run-down of the men’s intramural program we found that thirteen different activities were offered; providing a wide range of participation for anyone on campus. In regard to his program Mr. George Marinkovich would like to thank all the students who par­ ticipated and says he is looking forward to next quarter.
