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.

Leonard Lively, Melrose, presi dent; Bill Hand, Dillon, Beaver head county director; Ed Stevens, Cameron, Madison county direc tor, and Avery Conine, DiUon, sec retary, conducted the discussions. A questionnaire to determine the interest in portable milling opera tion is being sent to miners in Beaverhead, Madison, Silver Bow and Jefferson Counties. Beaverhead County Representa tive Frank W. Hazelbaker will present the Association’s proposed With 280 Single Idaho Kegler W ins Dillon Pin Tourney 1963 Legislature. Principal pro posed revisions include the clari fication of prospectors’ permit re gulations. Having obtained a prospector’s permit under present law, the dis coverer of an ore deposit, on ap plying for a mining lease on state lands must pay a-$500 fee to the State Land Board for an exam ination as to whether a mining lease is warranted. The Associa tion’s proposal would require the board to refer applications for mining leases on land not previous ly examined to the State Bureau of Mines and Geology, which is prepared to perform this service at no cost. Having obtained a favorable re port under existing law, the dis coverer of an approved ore depos it must submit to competitive bid ding .on the lease for which he ap plies, before a lease is issued. The Association proposes that the discoverer, upon receiving a favorable report from the State Bureau of Mines and Geology, be allowed to lease the deposit at a reasonable fee under reasonable conditions, without risking his in vestment o f time, labor and money in competitive bidding.

Just arrived — New stationery for Christmas. Daily Tribune-Ex-' aminer, \ \ Jack McMurchy \Citizenship In action” was the theme of this year’s 41st National 4-H Congress; and to me it was very timely, important and inspir ational. The citizenship theme was Illustrated and explained in as semblies where speeches were giv en by the honorable Buford El lington, governor of Tennessee, and Dr. Glenn Olds, p r e s i d e n t of Springfield College. / A .panel composed of leaders'in industry, agriculture, education, and labor answered controversial questions; and the delegates par ticipated in group discussions. Among the many ideas brought out in these assemblies were the prin ciples of freedom of speech, prob lems faced by democracies, and encouragement of young people to enter politics. The delegates were also urged to place achievement above status, develop desirable moral codes, have a regard for others while striving to accomplish goals, and take the ideas they learned back to their local clubs. The 1500 delegates to 4-H Con gress represented approximately two and one-half million 4-H club members and included in addition to delegations from the fifty states, those from Puerto Rico Canada. Five hundred state club leaders, extension agents, leaders, and alumni completed the (roster. Although many of the assem blies were held in congress head quarters at the Conrad Hilton Ho tel, 4-H’ers were guests at the In ternational Harvester Plant, Art Institute of Chicago, Orchestra Hall (for both the pop concert and Sunday Evening Club), Museum o f Science and Industry, Museum of Natural History, Aragon Ballroom and International Livestock Expos ition. In addition to these places; the Montana delegation also toured the city and visited the Board of Trade, Adler Planetarium, Chicago Temple and the Breakfast Oub. Congress was one of the great est experiences of my life for I learned, reviewed and began, to think about citizenship and its meaning; made many new friends; and had a wonderful time doing it. The trip is an honor every 4- H’er should be proud to work for. In closing I would like to thank all those people who made my trip possible including the Beaverhead County 4-H clubs (my sponsor)«' my county agents, 4-H Council, Riverside Rustlers 4-H Club, the club leaders, and especially my, mother.
