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.

Monday, Nov. 19, marked an historic day in the Jives of Horse Prairie residents as their new, modern $50,000 grade school was offi cially opened for business to its teachers and pupils. Located in the small community of Grant, the new building incorporates two class rooms, an auditorium with elevated stage, a fully equipped kitchen, complete lavatory facilities, and an all-electric heating system. • In addition to serving the edu cational needs of the area, the school will also provide a commun ity center for residents of the Horse Prairie region. Hosts at Open House Trustees of Grant School Dis trict No. 7 were hosts at an open house celebration on Tuesday eve ning, Nov. 20, and despite a tor rential rainstorm, many were on hand to inspect the structure and partake of coffee and donuts. Among the open house visitors was Mrs. Annie Ames, recently elected Beaverhead County super intendent of Schools. Mrs. Ames taught at the lower Grant school during the 1917-18 school year and returned in 1947 to teach there for an additional five years. Combines Former Schools The attractive cinder block and face brick structure consolidates the area’s two former schools— “Upper Grant” which was located between the Donovan and Brenner ranches, and “Lower-Grant” at Grant. Although they are extremely proud of their new school, both parents and pupils will accept the transformation from the “Lower” school with a certain nostalgic reluctance. For this one-room frame build ing, a memento of the rapidly dis appearing country school, had served it# community faithfully and well for over 50 years. Constructed in 1911, it had un dergone numerous repairs and re novations during its lifetime but had always afforded a warm, safe sanctuary for both pupil and par ent activities. To Be Converted This old friend will neither be destroyed nor abandoned to the ravages of time and weather. Lo cated next door to the new build ing, it will be remodeled and con verted to a two-apartment teach- erage. And, thanks to the foresight of Grant School trustees, future gen erations of Horse Prairie young sters will be assured excellent schooling facilities. Currently, the new building houses 15 students. Aimer Halver son has charge of the upper grades and Mrs. Edith Wright directs the primary section1.

Richter and Beulah Richter $2,500 as just com pensation for a flowage easement on 40 acres of their Beaverhead County ranch property which had been condemned by the federal government. The acreage is a portion of that covering a number of ranch hold ings in the Armstead area which have been taken by the govern ment as necessary to the construc tion of the Clark Canyon Dam pro ject. Most of such properties or portions thereof will be flooded when the dam is finished next year and impounded waters begin to ac cumulate. In the Richter matter, which was tried before Judge W. D. Murray, the trial was delayed at the out set to clarify points of owner ship. The suit originally had listed Wilbur E. and Harriet E. Smith as holders of the property and as defendants. It developed, mean while, that ownership had passed to the Richters, who demanded payment of more than the $1,350 the government had offered under condemnation of the 40 acres for flowage easement. The Richters’ lowest suggested appraisal was $ 20 , 000 . J decision had no bearing on the situation here. Refers to Billings Case The Montana Supreme Court in a 3 to 2 decision upheld the con stitutionality of the Milk Control Act which has been on the statute books in one form or the other since 1937. The high court reversed! a decision by Billings Judge Charles B. Sandy who held last summer that the Milk Control Law was unconstitutional. The case reached the high court from Billings and involved Billings dairyman J. D. Rechberg. Rech- berg was elected' to the 1963 Leg islature from Yellowstone Coun ty and was one of the witnesses for Dillon groups who attempted to get the Milk Board abolished during the 1961 Legislative ses sion. Legislature May Repeal The local spokesmen indicated that in their opinion the answer to a free economy in the milk in dustry would be for the 1963 Leg islature to once again attempt to repeal, or at least modify, the Milk A c t An attempt to abolish the Milk Control Board at the 1961 Legis lature was led by Frank and Carl Davis and Beaverhead County Re presentative Frank Hazelbaker.

Giving these figures in what it claims to be the most complete and accurate list of satellite ef forts ever made, the British avia tion magazine “Flight” produces the launching dates, weights, or bits, inclinations, napies of launch ing vehicles when available and the expected lifetimes of the various Sputniks. U. S. Reports Failures Of the 126 launchings made dur ing the-5-year period 100 were by the United States. Of 52 failures registered during the same period all but two are attributed to the United States, for the obvious reason that the Russians have never admitted their failures. The only two Russion fizzles re gistered were two attempted Mars probes which the U. S. National Aeronautics and Space Agency says were made on Oct. 10 and Oct. 14,1960. 40 Still Up There Of all the satellites that went Into orbit during the five year per iod, 40 are still up there, the ma gazine indicates. .Three of them were dqe to stay up 10,000 years, one for 3,000 years, one for 2,000 years, two for 1,000 years and an other 11 for from 100 to 900 years. All of the long stayers listed by “Flight\ are American satel lites, two of the 10,000-year jobs being Midas IH and Midas IV de signed for missile, detection. It is notable that while some other details are given about So viet satellites the nature of the launching vehicle is not Indicated in a single case.
