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.

To this end was I bom, and for this cause came I into the worlds that should bear witness unto the truth.—New Testament: John 18: 38. * * • Christ did not simply speak the truth; he was truth; truth, through and through; for truth is a thing not of words, but of life and being.—Robertson. • • • The greatest friend of truth is time; her greatest enemy is preju­ dice; and her constant companion is sumility.—Colton. . . .

SUMMER SCHOOL OPENS NORMAL MONDAY JUNE 8 (Continued from page 1) abeth Collins Steed of Billings will offer non-credit “personal typewriting.’’ The summer school bulletin lists in detail courses which must be completed by out- of-state students who are candi­ dates for Montana certificates. It carries also a special schedule for 1942 high school graduates who are interested in the “accelerated” calendar by which they may com­ plete the two-year course in the minimum period of time. Office correspondence indicates a satis­ factory summer school attendance of former teachers wishing to take “refresher” courses in order to qualify for positions occasioned by the teacher shortage; there will also be in school many .two- year graduates interested in cer­ tification and in earning the de­ gree. The registration of men will be small. Reduction of Gasoline Ration for Tourists Motoring in Canada In View of the increasing grav­ ity of the gasoline shortage in Canada, due to the exigencies of the war, gasoline rations for tourists entering this country has had to be drastically reduced. We recently advised you that United States motorists visiting Canada for more than 48 hours might obtain from the Canadian Customs Officer at the border a gasoline license and ration cou­ pon book permitting the purchase of 20 units of gasoline, represent­ ing 100 Imperial gallons under the present quota. Now a new order of the Oil Controller abolishes the issue of the 20-unit coupon books to tour­ ists after May 14, 1942. It pro­ vides that, if a United States or foreign car tourist proposes to stay in Canada long enough to need more gasoline than he has in his tank at the time he enters the country, he will be given at the port of entry a ration book permitting the purchase of only four units of gasoline. At present a unit represents 5 Imperial gal­ lons, but its value may be chang­ ed at any time as circumstances require. No more than one of these 4- unit coupon books will be issued for any one car in any one year, and the Canadian Customs Officer will stamp the vehicle license to show that a coupon book has been issued. A motor cyclist may obtain a one-unit ration book under the same conditions. The responsibility for not run­ ning short of gasoline is up to the tourist himself. If he were to run out of coupons he would be given no more and' would have to arrange some other method of transporting his car back to the United States.

Since then, the actual size of the Army and precise plans for its expansion have not been announced, inasmuch a£ they are military secrets of the first order. Some commentators have forecast that in time the Army might total nine or ten million. The best available information seems to in­ dicate that a total of at least 6,- 090,000 will be attained. That is obviously going to have a revolutionary effect on the man­ power of this country. However, there is no factual evidence to support the scare rumors which say that every physically fit man under 36 is certain to be placed in uniform. Selective Service heads are making a genuine ef­ fort to create an Army of the size needed with minimum dislo­ cation of American family life. Here is how matters shape up at this time, according to publish­ ed statements: First, practically all available single men in the 20-35-year bracket have been called. Many who were given temporary de­ ferment for occupational reasons are now being summoned. In time, women and older men will replace thousands of young men in defense industries. Second, the Selective Service Boards are placing in the 1-A classification all men who have no genuine claim for dependency. That includes men with working wives, men who contribute little to the support of their households, and men with means. Almost all of these men will be in uniform by the end of the year unless they are unable to pass the physical examinations or perform vital work in war industry. Third, it is universally believed that Congress will soon approve a bill providing government grants to dependents of service men. These grants, as now pro­ jected, are small—around $50 a month for a wife and child. But they will make it possible for the Selective Service Boards to call thousands of men who are now deferred for economic reasons. Fourth, a new draft classifica­ tion, 3-B, has been adopted. And that is a matter of very great importance. At the present time, men with genuine dependencies IT IS WITH PRIDE, tempered by sorrow, that we think of the hundreds of our employees who served with the armed forces during the last war. Pride in their loyal service . . . . sorrow because many did not return. TODAY, AS BEFORE, our men are taking leave of absence to protect American traditions. We are proud of them, too, and we are looking forward to the day when they will take, * again, their place in this organization. BUT WE, WHO ARE LEFT BEHIND, have a vital job to do. It is our responsibility that they receive supplies and armaments, but it is, also, our duty to see that their rights as free men are safeguarded for them during their absence. ETERNAL VIGILANCE, at home, as well as abroad, is the price of liberty. Serving the Treasure State and the Nation The Montana Power Company are classified as 3-A. The 3-B classification is for men with gen­ uine dependencies who, in addi­ tion, are employed in war work. The hope is that thousands of men who now have non-war jobs will shift to war jobs, in order to obtain the 3-B deferment. Some observers say that eventually the Selective Service Boards will op­ erate on the “work or fight” poli­ cy which existed in World War I. In other words, a man will be given the choice of going into the Army, or leaving a non-war oc­ cupation for a war occupation. The industries which are classi­ fied as essential to the war effort are definitely limited in number. Lawyers, store clerks, newspaper­ men, wholesalers, advertising men, etc., have no claim for de­ ferment. Deferment is given only to men who hold a job which is directly and absolutely necessary to the production and transpor­ tation of the raw and' finished ma­ terials which are involved in war. What this all adds up to is plain. If you are a single man, under 36, in reasonable health, you will go into the Army unless you are virtually irreplactable in some war industry. If you have dependents who look to you en­ tirely for support, you will be deferred for the time being—but there is a strong likelihood that in time the continuance of your deferment will depend upon your obtaining a job in war industry. If you have minor physical de­ fects, you are not exempt from military service. The original physical standards have been re­ laxed, and men with defective eyesight, hearing, feet, etc., are being called to the colors and as- signed to non-combatant duty. Many a problem remains to be worked out. An army of 6,000,- 000 men would mean that four to six times that number would be needed in industries manufactur­ ing and transporting supplies. On top of that, agriculture must be kept going, and on an expanding scale, inasmuch as we are send­ ing tremendous quantities of food stuffs to our Allies. Selective (Service heads, such as General Hershey, have advised the Boards to exempt enough farm labor to keep food production up to the necessary level. But, reports say, in some areas the draft is vir­ tually denuding the farms of la­ bor. Furthermore, farmers can­ not pay the high wages paid by war industry, and workers are naturally taking jobs in war fac­ tories instead of on farms. This seems to be one of the most seri­ ous of the unsolved problems. It is probable that the imme­ diate course of the war will have a direct bearing on Army expan­ sion plans here. If, for instance, Russia continues to hold the Ger­ mans, and Japan is stopped in the Pacific, a U. S. Army of the larg­ est size possible will not be nec­ essary. If, on the other hand, Germany manages to crack the Russian defense this summer, and if Japan continues to win victor­ ies, you can look with assurance to Army expansion on a tremen­ dously accelerated scale. It is reported that men between 35 and 44, which was the second group registered, will, as -a gen­ eral rule, be taken only for be- hind-the-lines Army service. It is expected that the greater pro­ portion of this group will go to work in war industry. No plans have been made for the 45-435 group of registranst.
