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.

At the Northern Montana track meet at Great Falls last Saturday the boys representing the Teton high school won third place, hav­ ing scored fourteen points. Great Falls was first and Helena second. Havre, Lewistown and Belt follow­ ed Teton in the ( rder named. The points credited to Teton were scored by Denzel McDonald, who won first in the broad jump, and tied for first place in the high jump. Chester Trescott was sec­ ond in the shot put and third in hammer throw and discus hurl. Teton was third in the relay race. They had no entries in a number of the events. Considering the fact that the boys have had prac­ tically no coaching during the spring months, and but very little practice, they certainly have made a very creditable showing. We are confident they will give a better account of themselves at the meet at Missoula next week.
