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.

Tuberculin Test Follow-up Is Now Under W a y Mrs. Argyl Stephens, president of the Beaverhead County Tuber culosis Association, has announced that tuberculin skin tests have been administered and read in Beaverhead County Schools and that the follow-up proceedings are now under way. The follow-up includes x-rays of individuals showing a positive re action and an attempt to trace the source of contact which may have been responsible for the pos itive reaction. Again it is stressed that a posi tive reaction does not mean that the individual has active tubercu losis but that he has come in con tact with active tuberculosis germs at some time. Mrs. Dave Gallag her, as follow-up chairman, will be in charge of this part of the pro gram. The fine turn-hut of those to be tested was most gratifying as was the wonderful cooperation of the local doctors, nurses, volunteer workers, and the school adminis trators, teachers and personnel, Mrs. Stephens said. Mrs. Stephens expresses sincere thanks and appreciation to those who volunteered their services in carrying out the program includ ing: Dr. Wendell Poundstone, Dr. A. L. Juergens, and Dr. John Sei- densticker; nurses, Mrs. Lloyd Thomas, Mrs. John Paddock, Mrs. John Ricks, and Mrs. Lawrence Johnson; volunteer workers, Mrs. Fielding Graves, Mrs. John Bur- well, Mrs. Carl Davis, Mrs. William Garrison and Mrs. Wendell Pound- stone. She also expressed appreciation to the officers of the Beaverhead County Tuberculosis Association-— Mrs. A. L. Juergens, Mrs. Dave Gallagher, Mrs. E. J. Donovan, ■f- U. S. Defense Secretary Robert McNamara’s massive reorganiza tion of the Army's reserve forces will not affect Dillon’s National Guard Unit in any manner, accord ing to local officers. Major- Jim Womack said here Thursday, “There will be no changes whatsoever in our battery (Howitzer Battery of the Second Reconaissance Squadron).” Cur rently about 65 members comprise the local guard unit at the recent ly constructed armory north of the city. Babcock, Kendall Object Elsewhere throughout the state, however, the picture appeared to tally different. With the exception of Second Squadron batteries, many other units were facing re vision—and some total abandon ment. Major General Richard Kendall, adjutant of the Montana National Guard, and Governor Tim Babcock labeled the reorganization as “wholly unacceptable” to the state. Kendall based his objections on the fact that the new plan would result .in the loss of a tactical headquarters to which most state units look for direction. General Kendall also said the re organization would mean dropping many present personnel and pro jecting adverse economic effects on many communities. Have Veto Power State governors, a number of whom have voiced objections to the Defense Department’s reorgan ization plan, have a technical pow er to veto such directives affect ing their states’ Guard units. Under McNamara’s plan, 1,861 units would be eliminated and re placed by 1,017 new and modem civilian units. Santa Here Saturday The Weather Mrs. T. F. McFadden, Dr. Wen dell Poundstone, John Garry, Mrs. Parke Scott, Mrs. A. R. Kellett, Mrs. Leslie Jones, Mrs. Emil Sch indler, Miss Am y Stephens, and Mrs. William Garrison. Mrs. S t e p h e n s >particularly wishes to compliment the schools and all their personnel on the help and cooperation given in setting up and carrying oflt the testing. Again everyone is reminded that the tuberculin skin tests are given in an effort to stamp out tuber culosis. Your purchase of Christ mas seals makes this effort possi ble. Key chains 69c.

CHRISTMAS SEALS light TB and RESPIRATORY DISEASES Seattle Pacific Defense Stuns Western, 79-44 A stifling, man-to-man defense which limited Western Montana’s Bulldogs to 16 points in the second half sparked Seattle Pacific to a 79-44 rout of the Dillon club Thursday night at Seattle. The final 20 minutes was a sud den reversal of the well-played first half in which the West Coast five took a narrow 35-28 lead.

Browelit, Seattle’s superb guard, hit 10 field goals and a free throw for 21 points and scoring laurels. Dick Silberman, the Bulldogs’ season scoring leader, again was high for the Straugh club with 13 and Larry Schmautz added 10.

Local Editor Recalls Infamous December 7 — 21 Years A go Twenty-one years ago today Pop was living at San Carlos, Calif., down the peninsula from San Francisco. It was Sunday, Dec. 7, 1941. Mrs. Townsend and I had re turned the evening before from Iowa after attending the funeral of a relative. W e were enjoying the California sunshine on the patio that Sunday morning when the phone rang and a friend asked if we were listening to the radio. \Turn it on, you wil-l be inter ested,” he said. W e turned on the radio which was' blaring on all stations that the Japanese were attacking Pearl Harbor. A t first we didn't believe it . . . thinking it was a dramatic play of some sort but gradually the truth was realized. . . we were involved in World W ar H. ' Fearing that Japanese planes would bomb San Francisco, thou sands o f fanillies were loaded in- to automobiles and trucks and headed east. M y wife and I thought how lucky we were In arriving at our home before the exodus started. Highways were jammed with the tide flowing ever east ward. All1 day the radios blared the havoc visited on our fleet at Pearl Harbor. With the darkness in the evening searchlights thrust their beams into the skies search ing for Japanese planes. A few were sighted in one group but turned back without dropping bombs. The next day those who had fled the city began returning. Such was thç first day of World W a r II on the Pacific coast. I f World W ar H I starts wo will not be so lucky. Today w e have intercontinental bombs. It w ill be easy to bomb our cities.
