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.

If the teams play Friday afternoon, there will be no Grey Cliff or McLeod bus. If the herders play Friday night only, all regular bus runs will be made Friday. The hot lunch program will be operated as usual Thurs day and Friday for the grade school. B o u l d e r s n o w ‘ a v e r a g e ’ Although you may find it hard to believe (especially if you've finally cleared your driveway) the Soil Conservation Service (SCS) survey shows the first readings taken March 1 were just about normal. Readings at Independence indicate a »now depth of 56.5 inches, up from 53 inches last year. A reading of 73.9 inches at Monument Peak is down from the 75.5 inches noted last year. The average snow depth at Independence, figured from 1941-69, is 54 inches, and the Monument Peak average is 73, computed from 1961-69 data collected. Moisture content was also measured, and Independence had 18.3 inches, slightly above the 1974 reading of 18 inches, and Monument Peak measurements showed 24.2 inches of moisture content, under last year's 26.1 inches, but close to the average of 24 inches. Frank Biglen, engineering technician for the SCS, who led the survey team says these readings with lower snows and moisture content a t upper elevations and heavy snow depth and moisture content a t lower levels are a reversal from last year's which had above-average accumulation a t upper levels with less in the lower elevations. Biglen says this difference will cause the heavy water period to comer earlier than last year because the greater accumulation is at lower elevations. He says the SCS predicts that the irrigation supply should be adequate during the main melt .periods of June and early July, but it will recede rapidly as the snow at the lower elevations melts out Do these measurements mean we are safe from spring flooding? Biglen says it is really too soon to say. Surveys will be conducted April 1 and May 1 and more reliable for casta may be made with new data. Even after the survey was taken, the areas received rain which will settle the snow but add to the moisture content says Bob Leinard of SCS. The large snowfalls last March were largely responsible for last year’s flooding says Biglen. However, Leinard notes the floods could have been worse if the rapid melting had not been slowed down some by the water freezing each night. A two-page pamphlet containing an interpretation of the measurements is being printed by the SCS. The publication entitled “Water Supply Outlook for the Upper Yellowstone River Basin” will be available at the end of this week. 91 B o w l i n g l e a g u e s t a n d i n g s Me and Re League Feb. 27,1975 Coast to Coast 4-0; Stephens Auto 4-0; Burlington Northern 4-0; Cole Drug 4-0; Harolds Body Shop 4-0; McLeod 3-1; CM Russell 1-3; Clouse Transfer 0-4; Rehmer Electric 0-4; Klindts 0-4; 1st State Bank 0-4; Dales Rupps 0-4.
