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.

Histeriaal pestotT Y ' r- S 't o O JUDITH BASIN COUNTY'S NEWSPAPER SIN 1908 • JUDITH BASIN STAR VOL. XXX HOBSON. MONTANA, DECEMBER 23. 1937 NO. 23 Here's How To Get Your New Auto License Helena.—Montana motorists will follcw a new procedure when they equip their vehicles with 1938 li- censes. The new motor vehicle law is effective January 1st, but with January 1st and 2nd legal holidays, registration will actually start Janu- ary 3rd. Motor vehicle owners will take their 1937 motor vehicle registration card to the county treasurer or as- sessor where they will obtain two ap- plications for registration prepared by the state registrar of motor ve- hicles. These cards will carry virtu- ally the same information prepared on the 1937 registration card sent to all motorists with the 1937 Plates. After making out the two applica- tion cards, the vehicle owner will submit them to the assessor who will then assess the vehicle. Assessment of the vehicle will in- clude preparation of an assessment card by the assessor, which gives full information on the vehicle and pro- vides an oath to be signed by the ap- plicant stating in effect no effort has been made to avoid taxation of mo- tor vehicles by transfer out of the county in which the owner resides. The assessor then will place the as- sessed and taxable value on the ap- plicatioP cards. With his vehicle assessed, the own- er will go to the treasurer where he will present both copies of the appli- cation. the 1937 registration card and a copy of the assessment card prepared by the assessor. The treas- urer then will ascertain whether there are any delinquent taxes on the vehicle. If so, the delinquencies will be added to the current taxes. The treasurer will then figure the taxes on the vehicle for 1938 on the mill levy fixed by the county commission- ers for the previous year. If the ap- plicant owns no property other than the motor vehicle, the treasurer may add road and poll taxes to the assess- ment. After the treasurer has figured all taxes due on the vehicle, he will add the license fee and on receiving the money will issue the 1938 license plates direct to the applicant. Pre- viously, treasurers forwarded appli- cations to the state registrar at Deer (Continued on page 5) School Funds For Drouth Counties Soon Missoula.—Meeting here the State Board of Education decided to make $75,000 immediately available for distribution in drouth stricken coun- ties of $150,000 equalization fund.

The players seemed to forget indi- dividual glory and worked as a unit to hang up their first victory of -the year. If the team will play the same kind of ball they exhibited last Fri- day night the Tigers will be apt to be taken seriously as a tournament !contender this year. The Windham boys started the scoring but Hobson soon took the lead and ended the first quarter with an 8 to 3 lead which they increased to 1(3 to 5 as the half ended._ The Cowboys came out strong in the_third quarter and put tine fight that look- ed for awhile as if they might make a close game of it but in the last quarter the Tigers more than mateh- eil them and ended on the long end of the 28 to 14 score. Evtry man (in the team showed good work, Brad- ley and Sentent -y playing very good floor games while G. Thompson and W. McCullough hung up 10 and 1,1 points respectively. R. McCullough saw action for the first time this year and his playing seemed to be the ste bilizing force that Hubsun has been in need of. In a preliminary game the llobsen grades hung a 5 to 4 defeat on the Windham grades. After three quar- ters of slow play both teams put on a whirlwind fin:3h that had the fans cheering. Windham salvaged one game for themselves when their girls' team took the - Hobson girls by an 18 to 4 score. The first half saw them bat- tle co even teams and end in a 4 ta 4 tie. The last half Dorothy Rogers found her shooting eye and tallied 12 points to let Windham walk away with the contest. The Hobson Tigers traveled to Stanford last Saturday night and continued their winning streak by taking the Stanford Wolvei into camp to the tune of 29 to 17.
