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.
Möttfcms Histórica] iíbrary Right or By George M. Melton funny Money - It is possible to have a real good time, on mighty few, dollars, if you want to take a trip to Bra zil this winter. Their Cruzeiro is now valued at 550 to the dollar. But then you might not have to stop and spend all your time in Brazil for the Escudo over in Chile plummeted to an' all-time low last week also, $1.97 to $1.00. This means that the dollar on the free market costs almost 75 per cent more than its official rate. Almost all the moneys in dark Africa are on the skids. In1 the Congo the Katanga franc is as .low as 260 to the dollar. And the I black Israeli pound is worth about 31 cents in our money. In Japan)' the free Yen is around 402 to th e ! dollar. And in Korea the W o n is | quoted at 130 to the dollar. A n d ! in the illicit markets of Jakarta and in Singapore the quotations are as low as 1250 to one dollar. And in Laotia the Kip is quoted around 127 to the dollar. But whether it is a Kip or a Cruziero or a Yen or a Franc, just look how phoney money is that has only a bankrupt country back of it. Now over in this country the boys who were supposed to be in on the know said that if you had any dollars you would wake up one day and find the money was absolutely worthless. Instead the things that are turning out to be losing value are stocks, real es tate, and commodities. Those dollars, which are redeem able yet in foreign countries IN GOLD are the best money in the world. But if we throw out the gold backing, they will be as worthless as a piece of paper— and you might just as well wake up with a pocket full of Escudos. I am not too familiar with them but I know this: I don't want to count on them for “change.” I might go hungry. Using the simplest of political economic rules, anyone can see that there is going to be a rush with every kind of commodity in the world to trade it for our dol lars. This means fierce competi tion, and price cutting the like of which we have seldom seen. If this drives the prices of com mon stocks, real estate and com modities lower and lower, the man with a little money can1 get back VOLUM E NUM B E R 1 DILLON, M O NTANA THURSDAY, NOVEMBER 29, 1962 NO. 5 Dillon City Council Receives Autographed Christmas Seals Santa Will Visit Dillon December 8 . ± . . . . . . gest number of votes will become into the^picture again and rehabi- . ^he county committee chairman for 1963. Other posts to be filled litate himself. For those who are loaded with obligations on automobiles, hous es, clothing, furniture and the \money lenders\ at their heels, it hasn’t taken long to find out that they can get rid of these debts about as easy as they can incur them. Simply by moving out of the state, or by declaring oneself bankrupt, has turned out to be an easy trick and many are do ing it, and more will later on. Experts estimate-that there are ONE TRILLION, FIVE HUNDRED BILLION in paper debts outstand ing. A lot of these will be elimin ated through the method described above. In the meantime take a look at the price of -gold and silver. The* price of silver has moved to its highest point in the last 42 years. It is moving toward the $1.10 level and may go as high as $1.25 by next spring. And a glance at the mines that might produce more silver shows that it is not too easy for many big producers to get out silver without turning out lead and zinc. These two latter minerals are hit ting new lows in the history of mining. So many big silver pro ducers can’t function, without a loss. If you can find a mine that is strictly a primary producer of sil ver, its stock might be worth buying and holding. About the on ly ones of that type, however, are not in this country but in Canada. Those are Siscoe and United Keno Hill. But wait for the big breaks since it looks like the end has not yet arrived in this bear market. Prices will no doubt go to new er lows>—-but possibly not until another rally has gathered in a lot of “suckers” who figure the market has reached its lows and will go up again to former heights.
