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.

Along with their Nov. 30 checks all VA pensions recipients will re ceive enclosed tabulating cards. They carry the words: “please do not mutilate.” Meredith said it is extremely important that these instructions be followed. On these cards beneficiaries must report all income received during 1962 and that expected in 1963. “Income,” Meredith said, means everything, including social' secur ity payments, .except of course, the VA pension payments them selves.” Law requires the VA to use the reports to determine continued eligibility of pensioners and in some cases to make adjustments on the basis of increased or de creased outside income. number of voters to 600 at each polling place. Chiefly concerned in the trans fer will be former Guild Hall vo ters living south’ of the city lim its. They will be assigned to var ious other polls within the city and will be notified upon comple tion of the project. County officials said the redis tribution plan was given prefer ence over establishment of an ad ditional polling place due to the heavy county expense involved by the latter alternative. Abolish Precinct 7 Red Rock Precinct -7, with polls at the Armstead School, will be abolished under the new plan due to the East Bench project which eventually will flood over that community. Voters remaining in that area will be reassigned to the Dell and Grant polls while the many who have moved to Dillon will, of course, vote here.
