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.

Melton Baton Rouge, La. \God grants liberty only to those who love it and are al ways ready to guard and defend it.\ This simple motto i n s c r i b e d over the names of Louisiana stu dents who gave their lives for their country, is seen in a nook on the campus of one of the most forwardly progressing universities in the nation today—The Universi ty of Louisiana—which we were privileged to visit on this trip for livestock men. The enrollment here is now up to the 13,000 mark. And in with this there is a medical branch, a law school, a complete agricultur al layout and a wonderful library. That this university exists at all is due to the efforts of one man, alone— Huey K. Long, former gov ernor of Louisiana, and United States Senator from that state. He was assasinated in the cap- itol building which he erected and he is buried in the lawn in front of this beautiful building. His like ness is a monument standing quiet and alone with arms outstretched toward this great edifice. There are 48 steps leading up to the entrance and each carries the name of one state of this union. Montana is well toward the top with the date of its becoming a state, 1889. (Say: that was the year I was bom ). I kept climbing and was almost winded before I got up to it. As I stood on that step it was just becoming twilight and lights were beginning to twinkle on here and there. But it was dark down by Huey Long’s grave. I could not help bfit think, after our tour thru this college, how many lamps of learning he had lighted for kids from Louisiana and from all the world. Small matter, perhaps, that on this particular evening as I stood there for a moment, that there were no lanterns burning for him. He had made the call for the rich and the poor of his beloved state to come and to learn and to carry their learning as a bright light to all the world. For research, for progress, for humanity. What more could a great man give? Through jealousy, he lost hia life. But big men saw the possibilities in this great country around Ba ton Rouge. Few know that during the World War, a plant here made 90 per cent of the gasoline for air planes. This was one of the clos est guarded secrets of the war. Big men saw the possibilities of this district and today, where there is an inexhaustible supply of water, oil, electricity and labor, the greatest, plants in the world are being built. Huey K. Long saw it. President Rossevelt saw it. So it wasn’t all politics. Realities helped erect and give to Louisiana these great as sets for their children and for all America. Pointed out to us as we drove by were plants manufacturing aluminum, which requires an* al most inexhaustible supply of water. The old Mississippi gives them that. Siigar plants produce Santa Makes Annual Visit Almost 700 children were on hand here last Saturday to greet Santa Claus as he made his annual visit to Dillon. Plump and jolly as ever, St. Nick distributed treats to 155 youngsters from the Twin Bridges Children's Center, following a free 10 a.m. movie at the Ro berta Theatre, then was taken on a fire truck tour of the local business area and at 1:30 visited with over 500 children— each of whom re ceived a gift— at the Gosman Drug corner. The festive event was ar ranged by the Beaverhead Chamber of Commerce with Dean Wright, Jay Beager, Bob Homan and Avery Conine handling the many details. Methodists Will Present Yule Program Friday A Christmas musical program will be presented Friday at 1:30 p.m. in the Methodist Church.

Corral Club Plans Activities From WMCE Wescolite The Corral Club, new organi- zajibn on campus for those in terested in Western culture ap preciation, held its weekly meet ing Tuesday, November 27, in the Student Union. A schedule of meetings will be posted on the club’s bulletin board for all those interested in attending. A club-sponsored rec ord hop was held Saturday in the Student Union.

Header's Letter Dear friends of our newspaper: Monday evening at the meeting of the Beaverhead County Museum Association we voted to praise the Dillon Jaycees for their flag project and for erecting street markers so our visitors and strang ers may find their way. The flags in front of business houses are a decided asset to our fair city and were especially beau tiful the other day intermingled with the Christmas decorations. We would like to thank them for all of their hard work and effort. Beaverhead County Museum Association Mrs. Elfreda Woodside, President 20-Foot Christmas Tree Adorns Post Office Lawn Dillon's holiday atmosphere was colorfully enhanced yester day with the erection of a ma jestic, 20-foot Christmas tree— fully lighted and decorated— on the Post Office lawn. The tree was secured by For est Service personnel, who were assisted by Post Office and Mon tana Power Co. employees in the placement and decoration. Lights and adornments were furnished by the Beaverhead Chamber of Commerce, which is also responsible for the many attractive business area holiday themes.

Bulldogs Nipped, 90-81, by Washington Five Central Washington withstood a late Western Montana threat Tues day night at Ellensburg to nip the Bulldogs, 90-81, behind the 31- point performance of 6’5” for ward Gene Wilson. The loss, Western's s e v e n t h straight, concluded a five game Washington tour by the Bulldogs, who will now be idle until Decem ber 21, when they host a strong Weber College quintet at the WMC gym. Western jumped to an early lead against the Central Washing ton five but were unable to cope with their opponents’ height and were outrebounded 73-32. Central held a 40-27 advantage at halftime but were hardpressed by the Montana squad in the final ten minutes when Western sliced their lead to five points. __Five Bulldogs hit double figures m the scoring cblumn with Chuck Johns and Dick Silberman each counting 18, Dave McGahan 14, Larry Schmautz 13 and Bob Sul livan 12. Central’s Wilson came up with an eye-popping basket barrage, hitting 13 of 22 attempts from the field. Western Coach Bill Straugh, un accustomed as he is to losing, had nothing but praise for his youth ful squad 'following Tuesday’s game. His starting five, comprised entirely of freshmen and sopho mores, have shown consistent im provement during their early sea son campaign in which they have met top cage squads from Utah, Idaho, Washington and Montana.

Today's Bible Thought *'s OF Irrigation Specialist W ill Assist Local Officials ini Preparation of Data For Potential East Bench Farm Sites : By Merle M. Lyda County Extension Agent For the past month we havq been getting some extra help with our extension chores. This help comes in the person of Stanley Howard, former extension irriga tion specialist, currently assigned to help our East Bench Steering Committee in the preparation of hand-out material regarding the East Bench Irrigation Project. Stan has a background quite suited to this assignment, in that of the 15 years .that he has spent in the Extension Service seven of these have been as a county exten sion agent and seven as an irriga tion specialist. Stan was raised on an irrigated farm near Sidney; at tended Sidney High School, Mon tana State College, Colorado State University, and Cornell University at New York. His assignment to this particular job was brought about by the ef forts of the East Bench Steering Committee which is attempting to develop and provide information that will help people establish themselves successfully on the pro ject. The Bureau of Reclamation and the Extension Service are both providing funds for this extra help and for the publication of the hand-out material. It is hoped that the rough draft of the material will be completed by the first of the year. The pam phlet will contain information on the crops that can be raised in the area, kinds' of general enterprises, climate, irrigation and soils infor mation, instructions on where and how to get land, information on schools, roads, facilities and ser vice; the amount of water that will be available and it’s expected cost, expected yields of crops, ex pected returns, investment costs and returns on typical enterprises, available assistance from agen cies, existing markets and a map of the surrounding area. If sufficient interest is indicated we will ask Stan to also help in preparing lessons for A1 Walton’s Young Farmer classes on “Water Management.” . Stanley Howard Filing Required To Protect Wells, Springs Since Jan. 1,1962, under the pro visions of the ground water code passed by the 1961 Montana Leg islature, all persons who have wells or springs on their places have been required to file notices of the fact with their county clerk and recorder’s office. Montana farmers and ranchers should remember that such filing is required regardless of whether the well was dug or the spring de veloped before or after Jan. 1, 1962. The only difference is that wells dug or springs developed after Jan. 1, 1962, must be filed at the tjme of completion, while those which existed before Jan. 1, 1962, can be reported any time before Jan. 1, 1964. But they must be re ported. Thus persons who have wells or springs on their places for some time still have a year to file to make sure their rights are pro tected. It might be well, however, to make a Jan. 1 ,1963, resolution to do it now and not put it off until the Jan. 1, 1964, deadline. Persons who have wells or springs established before Jan. 1, 1962 should go to their clerk and recorder's office and ask for Form No. 4, “Declaration of Vested Ground Water Rights.” And, of course, if anyone who has dug a well since Jan. 1, 1962, has neglected to file, he should do so at once. Ask for Form No. 2, \Notice of Completion of Ground Water Appropriation by Means of Well;” —Montana Farmer Stockman The Jolly Jills Home Demon stration club will hold its Christ mas party Friday evening at 8 o’clock at the home of Mrs. Wil liam Spehar, 330 West Glendale.
