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.
HISTORICAL s o c i e t y o f MONTANA . H E L E N A NO COMMENT By JAMES » . D O IM M The column, “No Comment,” should not be regarded as neces sarily reflective of NAM position or policy, for it is a reporting of incidents and conversations which its author thinks might be of gen eral interest. WASHINGTON — The close division in Congress on basic is sues provides fresh evidence of the peril confronting industry from unwise action on legislation. Principles of private often sur vive — or are rejected — by the narrowest of margins in either Senate or House. This situation is certain to con tinue throughout the 85th Con gress. It could be changed by the election next year. One outstanding example of the close division in Congress is the 208 to 203 vote by which the House killed the $1.5 billion fed eral aid for school construction bill.

(Continued on Page 6 ) “TRUE FRIENDSHIP” “A friend loveth at ali times,' even when all the world forsakes you. A friend will gladly suffer privation ^nd want in any. way possible to bring you comfort. This a true friend will do for your happiness without expecting to receive something in return. 'A friend will enter forbidden lands or plead with judges and tyrants; yes and will assume the guilt of others, even suffer, “the just for the unjust” that doomed victims might go free. A friend will penetrate the raging firey flames; will wade through the jungle and the cold; will dive into the deep or climb the mountains high; will go around the world and endure un told hardship and pain to rescue the perishing.” Friendship lives in the heart, grows in the mind, travels in the speech, shines out through the countenance a n d pronounces Gpd’s sublime benediction to the troubled and distressed soul. Friendship is the surety of peace, the seal of love. He who Is a True Friend is rich indeed for he will have friends. This is the price of True Friendship, be ing a friend to others, Luther C. Goebel Chaplain meyer has been driving cars and trucks since 1910. “I would recommend that dri vers comply more closely with highway and road signs, especi ally in leaving and entering both county roads and highways,” Mr Staudenmeyer said. The Council’s spokesman said that Stauden- meyer’s observation is a good one and would result iri increasing highway safety in the county. He pointed out that highway patrol statistics show that 52 people have been killed and 1,820 in jured in traffic accidents in the county in the past 20 years. Dur ing the period there have been 16,800 instances of property dam age. Sheriff Thomas presented Mr. Staudenmeyer with a member ship certificate in the Beaverhead Traffic Safety Council and also a gift certificate for a full tank of Standard gasoline from local dis tributor, Phillip Brown.

THE WEEK’S WEATHER The strong wind that reached a force of 75 m.p.h. here late .Sun day night was the big weather news of ths week. While it did some damage, the big blow was not accompanied by the hailstorm which had been predicted, and which would have caused great damage to crops. ' The first alfalfa harvest is over, some wild hay jobs have likewise been completed, and while con ditions now are* becoming dry with a rising fire hazard, haying weather has been excellent with only a few short interruptions ; from rain.
