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.

'\'•Vf Squad at Western Gives Promise of Outstanding Team With eight lettermen on his first string squad of 12, Coach Bill Straugh is feeling no qualms (barring the injury bugaboo) about the present basketball out­ look at Western College. The . Bulldogs face their first test of the season next Wednes­ day and Thursday at Rexburg, Idaho, where they meet the al­ ways tough Ricks College team in the season’s openers. On the following Saturday, Dec. 1, they play their first (non-conference) home game here with Carroll’s Saints. A 22-man squad has been work­ ing out in the college gym and dopsters are predicting that — barring crippling injuries — there will emerge one of the best Bull­ dog teams in years. Of the 25 games scheduled from Nov. 28 through March 1, the Bulldogs will play 10 on the home court, five of which will be con­ ference tilts. Coach Straugh’s present first- string roster is composed of the following: George Nelson, Livingston, a guard, transfer from MSC, 6 feet, sophomore. Dick Pitman, Belgrade, scored 405 points last year and an All- Conference first team, 6 feet 3, senior. Gary Cooper, Thompson Falls, 356 points last year as a fresh­ man, utility man on All-Confer­ ence team, 6 feet 4, sophomore. Larry Anderson, Frenchtown, 334 points last year, All-Confer­ ence second team, 5 feet 8, senior. Dick Barber, Ronan, lettered last year, 6 feet, sophomore. I Bob McLeod, Havre, 303 points in sophomore year, injury last year but now in good condition, 6 feet, senior. Bob DeMarois, Anaconda, let­ tered last year, 6 feet, senior. Jim Jenkins, Belgrade, trans­ fer from RMC where he lettered, 6 feet, junior. Max Neild, Rexburg, Idaho, 2- year letterman at Ricks, 6 feet 1, junior. Herb Herschman, St Ignatius, transfer from Gonzaga, 6 feet, sophomore. A1 Puccinelli, Anaconda, 2- year letterman, 6 feet 3, junior. Ray Scott, Plains, 2-year let­ terman, 6 feet 2, junior.

The world used to operate on a slower schedule. It it least gave time for more than fleeting appre­ ciation of the scenery. It would be nice to be young again, I muse, as I watch the trim stewardess briskly and pleasantly looking after the comfort of the passen­ gers — passing out coffee, pillows, magazines. Way over on the horizon the old moon looks like a slice of ripe cantaloupe swinging low over the western mountains. There’s scarcely a sense of speed or movement. We’re hang­ ing up here again while the earth with its spriniaing and clusters of lights slowly turns in endless panorama below — a deep, mon­ otonous drone like a bee fussing j its way down the garden. One by one the passengers flick out their reading fights and settle | back for a comfortable and re- ! laxed nap. No wonder 90 per cent of the traveling public takes to I the air! The fine ship rocks you j gently and it’s almost impossible ! to believe that our speed is al- I ways more than 200 miles per hour. _ Makes me recall the old nur­ sery song we sang as kids in school which went something like this: Winken, Blynken and Nod one night Sailed off in a wooden shoe, Sailed through a river of sil­ very light. Into a sea of dew. ’Twas all so pretty a sight to see That I thought it could not really be A sail on this beautiful sea. But here we are, like Winken, Blynken (the two eyes) and Nod (the head), and my head is nod­ ding so I too will “take five.” At 2:30 am., Pacific time, we are awakened — lights on — “Fasten belts, we are preparing to land at Los Angeles Interna­ tional Airport.” We follow a long “Constella­ tion” just arriving from Hono­ lulu. People pile out still wear­ ing the beautiful “leis” they were given as farewell tokens when they left Hawaii. The flowers are still fragrant and bring a smell of the tropics into the busy air­ port station. When we “set down” I realized happily that I had lost the bet with the insurance people — that 25,000 to 1 shot that I’d hoped wouldn’t pay off. I’m in good shape, as per contract—fresh and feeling fine. But what a change. Morning papers say we face the hottest November day in 40 years — 91 degrees. Snow was scattering in the prop blast when we roared down the landing strip at Butte a few hours ago.. There was nothing real to worry about in this modern way of travel. It’s lots easier and more real to worry about paying off the mortgage — or keeping the kids in school and out of trouble. And if we really must worry — there is the- drought. This southland needs rain and if it doesn’t come the country will be a big desert. Nothing for the cattle and sheep to eat. You can really get a grade- A worry into gear if you dwell on this — but what’s the use. There were two soldiers across the aisle in that plane — flying down to San Antonio to complete their training. Getting ready to protect us in Egypt, the Far East, or at home, if need be. But they were young and slept every min­ ute of the flight — no worries for them! Why wasn’t I able to do the same instead of scribbling away on these notes? Writing is a lonesome business but it keeps the old-man worries from crowding around. Tomorrow I “go aloft” again on the old Bonanza for San Diego to see a sick friend — then to Imperial Valley to see how the sheep are doing. More later, G. M.

It can reject the plea of labor union bosses to restore the Wag­ ner Act and its unfair advantages for labor unions over business. By these and other measures it can maintain confidence in busi­ ness, and can witness further ex­ pansion of the economy. Democratic Opportunities — The Democratic Congress will re­ sound with the oratory of some members who will claim that the election is a mandate for more’ socialism, for greater government interference with business and for huge spending regardless of the dangers of deficit financing. The Democratic candidate for president, who once thought the Taft-Hartley Act was not so bad — but later called for repeal — was defeated in the election. Thus members of Congress beholden to union labor are deprived of any claim that the nation wants the Taft-Hartley Act scuttled and the labor union bosses given advant­ ages over industry. Some Democratic members of Congress favor punitive taxes on business, maintenance of unfair individual and corporation taxes — and would use the tax system to strike at business. The Democratic Congress can show the country that the ex­ tremists in their ranks are in the minority — and can help to main­ tain confidence in business and thus contribute to continued pros­ perity. The Leaders — The responsibil­ ity for the Eisenhower adminis­ tration, of course, rests in the president himself first of all, but also in his many advisors and department heads. In the Senate, Democratic Leader Lyndon Johnson and Re­ publican Minority Leader Wil­ liam Knowland have cooperated in the. past, and are expected to in the future. Speaker Sam Rayburn of the House and Republican Leader Joseph Martin saw eye to eye on many issues in the last session, especially in their opposition to deficit financing.

It can resist .extravagant de­ mands for the assumption of new spending projects.
