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.

What about the rest of the Out dated buildings that are in the town of Big Sandy and in the surrounding territory that are still in use and will be for years to come, we hope. Are we to burn down or wreck any building that is twenty years or so old? What about the show house in town? It was fixed up in fine shape, as well as a lot of other buildings have. You say out dated, that covers a lot of territory in any lan- guage. How about the building where you print your paper? How old is it? Any one can point out to you a lot of buildings that are so called out dated. I believe the majority of peo- ple as well as myself, like to see that the pupils have decent buildings to work in. Which, as far as the classrooms are con- cerned, T, as well as others think they have, and as far as some of the other buildings are concern- ed we must agree that they are not the best, but why insist on new buildings at a time when all materials are at t h e highest price as well as labor cost? Don't the tax payers have a burden the way things are with out asking for more? I am sure that every one has the welfare of the children at heart and would like to see the community prosper, so there is no question about that. One does not hear about a new dormitory so that the children • from the farms have where to stay, and it does not seem to be any ones concern about that. As far as anyone driving a thirty year old car, W E L L, if we get a depression like we had in the thirties we would probab- ly be glad to have the gas to run one. As far as getting qualified teachers, we are all very much interested in getting them to teach our schools. And as far s.s wages are being the same I must disagree on that. Not that I say that the teachers are not entitled to more wages, they are, but I, as well as others do remember when a teacher was getting sixty, seventy and eighty dollars a month. When the question of raising gas tax came up so we could have better roads, how much support did we get from the towns? None. Taxes and more taxes, Direct- ly or indirectly, who gets it in the neck? We must all agree that our town as well as others have shown signs of better times ani we would like to see more im- provements on the farm as well as in the towns. Why not take it a little easy with those accepted figures of $400,000 and consider who has to bear the burden, directly or indirectly. I remember when I came to Montana, as a kid, I saw one of the buildings had a sign painted across t h e front, H. S. Flint, U. S. Land Commissioner. . but you don't know any thing about that, ask any older resident where it is. yeurs truly E(Iw. P. .1i rsa (Editor's Note: We are well aware of when The Mountaineer building was built and what shape it's in—we own it! There happens to be quite a difference between this building and a school buildin g. The Mountaineer is not a public in- stitution such as a school. Nor is the editor a public official. This paper is privately owned, privately operated and private- ly controlled. We are not trying to teach a large percentage of t Ti e community t h e printing trade in an obsolete building with the use of the taxpayers money. If we have to work six- teen hours a day with obsolete equipment that's our tough luck. It isn't costing t h e taxpayers anything. For your information, there are plans to do something about the present building—when we find time. At the present time, despite high prices, we are kept quite busy completing a new home. We felt that there was a need for a home at the present time; not sometime in the distant fu- ture even though we may still be paying for it \when we can't buy gas for our car.\ You state that you don't get any support from the towns on roads. I wonder if you realize or have ever stopped to think of all the time, effort and misery in- dividuals and organizations in Big Sandy spend helping to fight for the Judith road as they are right now? Sometimes I won- der if it's worthwhile?)
