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.

For children not having equip ment, the Jaycees will rent a lim ited supply of skis, boots and poles and these will be issued Friday night, Jan. 4, beginning at 7 p.m. in the high school Vo-Ag Building. A preliminary session for begin ners is scheduled this Saturday at the City Park. Starting at 1 p.m. NEW S and VIEWS By Lura B. Panwell County Extension Agent Half A Million Minufes- How Will We Spen/f Them? Happy New Year; A brand new year—a bright, clean page for life’s book. Whoever dreamed that one short year—as 1962 certainly turned out to be—could hold so much? And yet, did you, too, find it too short to accomplish all the things you had planned—too short to find all hopes and aspirations fulfilled? Looking back over these days, taking inventory as it were, from world affairs to personal ones, we find mistakes and failures. It could be discouraging if we dwelt only on that darker side. Except for the fact that he only is exempt from failures who makes no ef fort. However, these experiences should be used as stepping stones to mbre profitable ones. Carlyle wrote that “Experience takes dreadfully high school wages, but he teaches like no other.” John Newton has written \Ex perience is the Lord’s school; and they who are taught by Him usu ally learn by the mistakes they make that in themselves they have no wisdom; and by their slips and falls that they have no strength.” So we find that though we often have been weak and fool ish, God has been faithful in with holding, in His mercy, that which we deserved, and through His abounding grace, giving us that which we did not deserve! In 1962, did what we read, what we watched on TV or movies, what we heard on radio or in conversa tion, what we did in our church, our home, our clubs, our commun ity—did these enrich our life — make us a better person, a better neighbor, a better friend, a better citizen—in short, a better exam ple? Someone has said that the first great gift we can bestow on others is a good example. Sometimes we may feel that we do not matter much, but no man is so insignifi cant as to be sure his example can do no hurt. Nothing is so conta gious as example. Never was any considerable good or evil done without producing its like. We are all of us more or less echoes, repeating involuntarily the virtues, the defects, the move ments, and the characters of those among whom we live. We need to be especially mindful of this, as wev pprceive that the conscience of children is formed by the influ ences that surround them; their notions of good and evil are the result of the moral atmosphere they breathe. Whatever parent or teacher gives his children good instruc tion, and sets them at the same time a bad example, may be con sidered as bringing them food in one hand and poison in the other. Together with our very special privileges, we carry a heavy re sponsibility. , In 1963 we have 365 days, each containing 1,440 minutes. Alto gether, 525,000—more than half a million minutes to spend. How will the account stand at the end of the year? Wq know not what the future holds, but we know WHO holds the future, so let us claim His promise: \Trust in the Lord with;all thine heart and lean not to thine own understanding; in all thy ways acknowledge Him and He will direct thy paths.\ instructors will acquaint the jun ior skiers with basic fundamentals of skiing, preparatory to their first run on Rainy Mountain. During the clinic, buses will leave the Bagley School each Sat urday at 9:30 a.m. and return at 5:30 p.m. Tow and lift fees, class instruction, transportation and a hot noon luncheon are included in the entry fee of $15. Instructors and use of the Rainy facilities are furnished by the Dil lon Ski Club. Entry blanks for the clinic, which has grown both in numbers and popularity during its six-year existence, are available at Mc Cracken’s Store, Gosman Drug or from either of the co-chairmen. Blanks were also distributed throughout Dillon’s schools prior to the Christmas holiday and children are urged to fill them out and sub mit them to the Jaycees before the clinic begins. 14.22 Inches Moisture Recorded During 1962 The Western Montana College weather station reports total mois ture received during 1962 was a soaking 14.22 inches. This figure more than doubled the 6.11 inches, recorded during 1961 and, with an ample snowfall predicted throughout this winter, presages excellent range and crop conditions for the Beaverhead area. Today's Bible Thought “Peace I leave with you, My peace I give unto you: not as the world giveth, give I unto you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid.” (John 14:27). Dear Editor: * I was surprised, and, I might say mildly shocked to note in a recent issue of the Tribune-Examiner that certain citizens of Dillon are pe titioning for another vote on the controversial question of fluoridat ing the water system of Dillon. I wonder what was the matter with the referendum of a few years ago, when the measure was de feated by a substantial majority. Is it possible the. people have changed their minds? I hope not. Personally I believe that many have smartened up on the subject, and are stronger thn ever against fluoride. In the fight against evils, apathy is one of the greatest obstacles to progress. That which is not of im mediate concern, or of personal in terest, gets little or no response from the many. The fluoridation of a municipal water system def initely concerns all, both now and in years to come. To say the least, fluoridation is a venture into the vast realm of uncertainty and confusion and in fringes upon the personal rights of those who oppose. In a sense, it is but making Guineapigs of un suspecting subjects. The so-called “fair tests,” carried out by certain cities of the east, are by no means convincing. In another article I hope to tell you why they are not convincing, provided of course, the editor does not consign my offering to the waste basket.

Beaverhead County Workers Will Pay Additional $75(000 Under New Social Security Hike (Special to the Tribune) NEW YORK, Dec. 26—For the Beaverhead County residents who are employed, Social Security taxes will be 16 percent higher after January 1. Their payments will be at the rate of 3 and 5/8 percent, as it is at present. This applies to the first $4,800 of wages or salaries. Similar amounts must be paid by their employers. For self-employed persons, there will be an increase of 7/10ths of one percent. They will be paying 5.4 percent in the future. Their maximum cost will be $261 a year compared with $216 now. For employed people, the maxi mum cost per year will be $174. It is now $144. In Beaverhead County, the ag gregate increase in Social Secur ity taxes next year, assuming no Scotch .tape a t Tribune. Dennis Dupuis Wins M A R A Bareback Award BELGRADE — New rules were adopted, 1963 officers elected and 1962 championship awards were presented at the annual member ship meeting of the Montana Ama teur Rodeo Association at Bel grade. To encourage additional rodeos, the MARA agreed to approve new rodeos for one year without pay ment of annual dues. In addition, non-MARA contestants can com pete at one new rodeo without MARA membership. The ruling on ex-professional cowboys was relaxed. In the future these cowboys can qualify for MARA membership. A new set of team tying rules, designed to provide uniform stand ards for all rodeos and jackpot rop- ings in the area, was adopted. Edgar Icenoggle of Bozeman was reelected president of the MARA for 1963. Charlie Kamop of Har- lowton was named vice president and Sharon Icenoggle of Bozeman, secretary-treasurer. Jack Dawson - of Boulder re ceived the 1962 MARA All-Around Cowboy crown while individual event winners included Dennis Du puis in bareback bronc riding. Rubber bands, all sizes.

Half and Half Half of this extra cost will be borne by employees, through pay roll deductions, and the other half by employers. Locally, per capita payments to the pension fund have been high er than in many parts of the country because incomes have been running higher. The average employee in Beav erhead County was taxed an esti mated $81 during fiscal 1961. Nearly $11.6 billion was con tributed to the fund in the year by the nation’s 64,639,000 workers and their employers. Some $471,000 of that total came from local sources. It is expected to reach $546,000 in 1963. More Increases Slated The new jump in the tax rate is in accordance with the planned development of the Social Securi ty system, which calls for periodic increases. The final one is to go into effect in 1968. That will bring it to 4 and 5/8ths percent for employee and employer alike. Self-employed people will pay 6.9 percent. These rates, offer no leeway for any further expansion of benefits, such as would be offered through a hospitalization plan. Should that take place, there would be an additional hike in the rates.

HISTORICAL OF iviOisiTAHA~ • H e l e n a Beavers, Bulldogs Return To Action in Weekend Contests at Western Gym Dillon's college and high school roundballers return to the courts here this weekend following holiday layoffs to face a pair of strong out-of-statedubs In non-conference action. The Bulldogs of Western play host to the potent Parsons of Westminster on Friday and Satur day nights at the WMC gym while the Beavers seek their second straight SW Class B win at Helena Cathedral Friday before return ing here to meet Salmon, Idaho, in a preliminary to the .Westerh- Westmlnster game on Saturday. Bulldogs at Full Strength For Twin Clashes With Parsons Coach Bill Straugh’s Bulldogs will be seeking a reversal of their earlier meetings with Westminster when the Parsons took a pair of narrow victories, 77-68 and 79-63, at Salt Lake City. The Parsons are paced by 6-6 center Gary Bliss, who bucketed 40 points against Western in the two Salt 'Lake battles. Morris and Segura, a duo of talented senior backcourt speed sters, and big Jim Gibbons, a jun ior forward, have all proven strong all-around performers for the Utahans. Westminster split with North west Nazarene and lost a pair to Eastern at Billings in pre-holiday outings. Bulldogs at Full Strength The luckless Bulldogs, who have won only one of 12 outings thus far, will be at full strength for the weekend contests with both Dick Silberman and Dick Ferris back in the lineup after being side lined by sprained ankles. Listed as probable starters are Chuck Johns and Gerald Jones at forwards, freshman Jack Silliker at center, and Silberman and Bob Sullivan at guards. Dick Ferris and Larry Schmautz could get starting nods in either game, Straugh said. Jones, the former BCHS all- time great, and Silliker, the poised 6-3 whiz from Whitefish, have sparked the club with 15-point scoring averages over the past three games, which included an overtime loss to Carroll College in the Anaconda Invitational Tour- Beavers Seeking Second Conference Win at Helena Stunned by the temporary loss of high-scoring Pierce Rouse, the Beavers face Helena Cathedral with a revised line-up in an at tempt to rack up their second straight SW B loop win without a loss. Beaver Boss Max Nield indicated today that big Jim Salvo, the hus ky 6-1 forward who performed well during the recent Beaver three-game victory streak, might get the starting call at Rouse’s post opposite Jon Womack. Ed Ferris and Jim Womack ap pear set at the guard slots while Jerry Donovan or Tom Straugh will handle the center post. The Greenies of Cathedral, al ways tough on their home floor, dropped their conference opener to Loyola by a slender two-point margin in a pre-Christmas battle, while Dillon took the Rams, 55-38. Salmon Big Salmon, one of Idaho’s top fives last year, is again reported strong, with good height and experienced performers in almost all positions. Saturday night’s slate will get under way at the college gym at 5 p.m. with Salmon Jayvees play ing Beaver Jayvees. Beaver and Salmon varsities are scheduled at 6:30 with the college game following at 8.
