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.

Legion, Department of Montana on behalf of our sick and dis- abled ex -service men and their families, calls upon the people of the State of Montana to re- spond llberrlly to the request for money to carry on this work without disparagement, more- over, of the other legitimate purposes for which portions of the money raised at this Roll Call may be appropriated, we being in full accord with such work, but being especially de- iirous that the needs of the sick and disabled ex.service The II.
