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.

Dillon People Are At Paddock Rites In Hamilton Tues. Among the Dillon people, be­ sides the relatives, who attended the funeral of Brownie Paddock at Hamilton on Tuesday after­ noon were Mr. and Mrs. William Lloyd, Mr. and Mrs. R. M. Gregg, Miss Vera Melvyn. Former Dil­ lon people at the funeral included Cecil Trollinger, Mr. and Mrs. Mel Jones, Johnny Roberts — all of Missoula. Mr. Lloyd and Mr. Trollinger were pallbearers. Lloyd said that investigation failed to reveal the cause of the fatal accident. The truck plunged from the highway with a sheer drop of about 30 feet before it hit' a slight slope that sent it hurt­ ling 700 feet down the precipitous mountainside. Paddock’s body was found at about 500 feet. Lloyd said Brownie was known as a careful and competent driver and one not likely to have a pre­ ventable accident at such a spot. One theory is that the road caved under the vehicle, or that there was some sort of mechanical fail­ ure. The truck was too badly damaged to determine with cer­ tainty if a mechanical failure caused the accident. DRIVERS PENALIZED IN JUSTICE COURT THURS. . . i . A man giving his name as Elmei-j Hurst was sentenced to 60 days ¡in the county jail on a charge of driving while intoxica­ ted, when he pleaded guilty in justice court before Judge-George E.

Rotarians Hold Weekly Meeting How strong is \ the weaker sex? ; i ; i Strong enough to carry a 3-jton elephant in daily installments. That’s about how much laundry the average woman carries to and from her clothesline every year. Wish you could get out| of that heavy work? Well, you can—with an electric clothes dryer.

D. Curry at the weekly meet­ ing of the Rotary club. Dr. and Mrs. Curry recently returned from a trip during which they drove to remote and less-travelled spots of Arizona. Both found the scenery surpassing in its tower­ ing grandeur and color — but they also found it lonesome and desolate. When they were stuck in the sand, native Indians came to their aid and led them to their tour of some newly discovered pueblos and a trip . to some “highly photogenic” canyons. Chairman Wilber Squires intro­ duced two new members and they responded by giving historical glimpses of their lives.

It is a gift to . the college from Mrs. Fred Waldorf and her daughter Jane. j Instead of the usual reception as a “get acquainted” occasion for students .and faculty, a more -in­ formal-and. much enjoyed picnic was held Monday evening at “the grill” in the areaway adjoining the college buildings.

Boston Wool Man Finds Conditions Here Good, Richard Hallowell of the well known Boston wool firm of Hal­ lowell, James & Donald, was a visitor here last week with the company’s local representative, George M. Melton. On a trip dur­ ing which he had driven through much of the wool territory in Wyoming and Montana, Mr. Hal­ lowell said that Beaverhead county is one of the best areas he had seen for moisture, grass, and generally fine range conditions. Some areas he has visited are suffering from . lack of rain, he said. Mr. Hallowell said that his last visit to Dillon was in 1921, but that his company had done ex­ tensive business here for many years before that.
