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.
Montana Historical Libra# .’ ¿ \ « t f f . V . Missionary Will Be Speaker at Church Baptist A medical missionary who has spent ten years working with lep rosy patients in north-central In dia will be guest speaker at the evening service of the First Bap tist church Sunday and will show slides of her work during the New Year’s Eve program the following night. The missionary, Miss Elizabeth Walton, is partially supported by the church and has visited here during previous furloughs which come at five year intervals. She has been a missionary to India since 1946. In 1952 she was sta tioned at the leprosy home at Ko- thara, India, sponsored by the Con servative Baptist Foreign Mission society. During her first year at the home she established an out-patient clin ic for 75 patients_.at Chandur Ba zar, a small town a few miles from Kothara. Over the years this clin ic has grown until 500 to 750 pa tients receive weekly medical treatment there. Two other similar clinics super vised by Miss Walton give her a total of nearly 2000 regular pa tients to care for with the help of Indian nationals that she has trained. Miss Walton and Indian pastors and evangelists present the Christian message of salvation to the patients as they receive their medical care. Miss Walton will be introduced during the Sunday School hour which begins at 9:45 a.m., Sunday and at the morning worship ser vice which begins at 11. A t the 7:30 p.m. service, she will be given time to describe her work and give a Bible challenge to missionary ac tivity. During the New Year’s Eve program which begins with a pan cake supper at 8 p.m., Miss W al ton is scheduled to show slides of the clinics and the home at 9:4b p.m. Visitors are welcome to all services.

Editor, Dillon Tribune-Examiner Dear Sir: I am writing this in support of Mr. Schwartz’ letter of Decem ber 13. Perhaps this should be entitled \Open Letter to the Fish and Game Service.” It is my understanding that the Fish and Game Department is running in the red and I’ve also been told they had to get a loan this year. If this is the case it is well understandable since each year it becomes increasingly evi dent that the Fish and Game De partment is little more than a free-for-all. Most of the other states around us have taken steps to regulate the out-of-state hunters so the resi dents may enjoy a few more years of sport—while our own Fish and Game is apparently trying to de stroy it. On tonight’s news, the State of Wyoming advocated the live trap ping of elk in the 'Park and de nounced the atrocious slaughter of a year ago. Strange— throughout the slaughter and of late, I can’t recall hearing anything from our so-called Fish and Game here in Montana. I have what some may regard as a hair-brained proposal. Since this is a country of a \Government of the People, By the People and For the People\ and since we all agree that anything belonging to the the Government belongs to the people, therefore, does it not fol low that such decisions like the Elk slaughter and the regulating of out-of-state hunters be put to the people? Maybe I ’m wrong, but I have talked to a good many people and not one has expressed anything even approaching satisfaction with the out-of-state hunter situation here in Montana. Undoubtedly the first thing the Fish and Game Department will say is, “W e’re operating in the red now. If we put such decisions before the people it will cost en tirely too much.” All that would be required is a public, state-wide anouncement outlining any pro posal in detail; then sit back and let the people make their own de cision in the form of letters. I per sonally think that instead of agen cies of the Government putting all these controls on the people, it is time that we the people start put ting a few curbs on the govern ment. I could name perhaps 20 people here in Dillon who agree with me that if the Fish and Game is al lowed to continue its irresponsible operations, then we as citizens are morally within , our rights to go get game whenever it comes han dy. With a little effort I could dig up a couple hundred or more who feel the same way. I f anyone, especially the Fish and Game Department, thinks I ’m all wet, then let this be a direct challenge to them. Put before the public, a COMPLETE and TRUE accounting of their activities and financing—and in the financial end, WHY? W. L. STEWART Dillon, Montana P. S. Even the Fish and Game Department will agree, a little more public enlightenment and ef fort to assist the people would be of an advantage.
