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.
Montana Historical Library « ú HELENA leT* VOLUME NUMBER 1 DILLON, MONTANA MONDAY, DECEMBER 3, 1962 NO. 7 Bulldogs, Beavers Dealt Double Weekend Defeats Westminster Stops tLivingston, Butte Western, 77-68,79-63 Take Beaver Pelts The potent Parsons of West minster parlayed strong second half performances to hand West ern’s Bulldogs a pair of almost identical defeats Friday and Sat urday nights at Salt Lake City. Boasting a veteran lineup and unstoppable 6’7” center Gary Bliss, the Utah five took the Fri day opener, 77-68, after trailing by eight points at halftime. The Bulldogs, who lost star guard Bob Sullivan on fouls early in the second half, were unable to cope with a fullcourt press of the taller, more experienced Parsons in the game’s late stages. A bright spot in the Bulldog loss was the continuing improved play of their young starting five and especially that o f Dick_Silberman, the sophomore postman who shared scoring honors with Bliss on 21-point outputs. Schmautz added 14 and McGahan 10 for the Western five. Cold Saturday Westminster took the Saturday match, 79-63, as Bliss and guard Jim Morris combined for 39 points.

Butte Sharp in Debut Coach Bob Rae’s Purples, mak ing their ’62 debut, unleashed a driving, double-post offense to smother the Dillon five, 63-48, at the W MC gym Saturday night.

' 30 lead at intermission but pulled away when Western hit a cold basket streak midway through the final period. Bulldog Boss Bill Straugh, sum ming up the game, said, “It seemed like we played most of the second half trying to get our 50th point. Up til then it was a close, well- played contest.” Silberman was aagin the Bull dog scoring leader matching his previous night’s 21-point effort. Schmautz finished with 15 and big Chuck Johns 11.

However, Broeder withdrew before the caucus started. College Issue Decisive Haines, who will begin his sev enth term in the legislature when it convenes, was the first to an nounce his candidacy for speak er. His defeat for the post was looked upon as a victory for the nine-man, all Republican delega tion from Yellowstone County which had opposed Haines in fear he would exert his influence against the ambitions of Eastern Montana College of Education to become a four year liberal arts college. Haines is from Missoula where Montana State University is lo cated, and where it is feared el evation of Eastern to a higher academic -status- would- detract from the university. It also was apparent that Broe der, in withdrawing f r o m the speakership race threw his votes to Hazelbaker as opposed t.o Haines. Othefr Officers Named The Republican House members elected these other officers for the 1963 session: Broeder as speaker pro tern; William Walrath of Hel ena, chief clerk; Casper Nybo, Mis soula; sergeant at arms, and Rev. William E. Burkhardt of the Ply mouth Congregational Church of Helena, as chaplain. Hazelbaker appointed the fol lowing legislators to the House Ad ministrative Committee, which makes all the appointments of House employes during the ses sion: Reps. Norris Nichols of Ra valli County, chairman; Dan Dy- kstra, Lewis and Clark County, vice chairman; Broeder, Flathead County; Leonard Regan, Cascade County, and John Pierce of Yel lowstone County. Regan is the on ly Democrat. Hazelbaker said he would an nounce his appointments to other House standing committees after the start of the session. He ex pects to return to Dillon Tuesday evening.
