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.

Western, with a 3-11 pre-confer ence mark, will start Schmautz and Johns at forwards, Silliker at center, and Sullivan and Silber- man at guards.

The concluding leg of the fabu lous tour will bring her home to Dillon and Bannack. Trip Is Christmas Gift The trip — a once-in-a-lifetime adventure—is a Christmas present from Mrs. Ovitt’s children, Norm and Ralph at Dillon; Joyce, a United Airlines employee at Se attle; Neil at Denver; and Betty (Friese) at Houston. “We wanted to give Mom some thing very extra special,” Ralph explained here yesterday, “so, af ter discussing many possibilities, we decided to chip in together and arrange this air trip.” Mrs. Ovitt has flown only once before. By the time she returns to Dillon, however, she will be a veteran air passenger—and an ex tremely happy and grateful moth er.
