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.

Arguments on behalf of the cou ple were presented by Hendrick Smith of Corette, Smith and Dean, defense counsel. He contended that a jury award Nov. 19 of $145,000 for the Rebich land holdings near Armstead was “inadequate,” that the jury went aaginst the weight of evidence, and that testimony on the part of government wit nesses was “incredible.” • The contentions were resisted by Robert T. O’Leary, assistant U. S. attorney, who argued the govern ment had presented logical and credible evidence which was duly considered by the jurors, and that the finding was in accord with the evidence. W. G. Gilbert also rep resents the Rebichs and Asst. U. S. Atty. L. G. Stimatz served the gov ernment with O’Leary. The defendants considered their ranch assets worth in the neigh borhood of $300,000, as defense tes timony placed the value variously from $280,000 to $325,000.

State Sen. Dave M. Manning, (D ) Treasure, said Montana’s, gov ernment is generally “in good fi nancial shape” artd its 1963 legisla ture probably would not seek new tax sources. “I think this legislature will be looking not to new taxes in Mon tana but toward making the best use of the money we have.” He was a member of a panel on taxation. The veteran lawmaker said the state’s good financial condition was due less to taxes passed by recent legislatures than to the good rain fall this year which ended a three- year drought and boosted the ag ricultural economy. “Our prob lem is how to get good hard money from this good ground,” Manning said. After hearing speakers from the other states complain of real pro perty assessment inequities, Man ning said Montana appeared to be “pioneering” with its new real pro perty reclassification and reassess ment program which goes into ef fect next year.
