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 ìiÌBrhJ^ $10,944 in State Funds Slated for County Schools HELENA — Superintendent of Public Instruction Harriet Miller announced that State Classroom Unit Assistance funds to be dis tributed to schools next week un der a temporary law enacted by the 1961 Legislature will amount to $125.80 per classroom unit. A classroom unit, she explained, is based on a regular, full-time qualified teacher. Under the law, one-teacher rural schools will re ceive 5125-80 each. The laregst school systems, which ard'in Bill ings and Great Falls, will receive approximately 570,000 each. Miss Miller explained that three counties — Wibaux, Fallon and Rosebud—will receive no class room unit assistance at all, be cause of legal provisions denying classroom unit assistance to dis tricts not receiving state school equalization money, another form of state aid. Of the $855,671.64 to be distrib uted, one-half will go to the ten most populous counties and the other half to 43 counties, Miss Miller said.

Tips Offered on Storage Of Christmas Decorations When the Christmas tree comes down, up comes the problem of finding a \home” for its trappings. Although the job of removing and stowing away the tinsel and trimmings is an un-festive post holiday chore, it can be accom plished quickly and efficiently with a few simple storage pieces that will make next season’s decorat ing ritual easier and merrier. Containers normally used for food make ideal storage places for the tree decorations, according to Violet Hackim, home adviser for the F. W. Woolworth Co. For in stance, covered plastic refrigera tor \crispers” come in assorted sizes and are handy for holding the sets of lights, collapsible tree stand and the sturdier, larger orn aments. Fragile decorations will be safe in plastic ice Cube trays, one to each compartment, to prevent chipping or breaking. The plastic containers are transparent, giving them the added advantage of at- a-glance stocktaking for the home maker before the 1963 holiday preparations. For dust-free storage of strings of beads, lengths of ribbons, tiny metal ornament hangers and other odds and ends, Miss Hackim rec ommends plastic jewel boxes with hinged covers. These, she says, eliminate the headache of un scrambling the tangle they usually create when jumbled together in a single box.
