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’s Bulldogs ran their current winning streak to four staright and upped their MCC mark to a perfect 2-0 with a sec ond-half surge which swamped Northern Montana, 86-59, here Fri day night. Coupled with Eastern’s disputed 70-69 win over Carroll, the West ern victory set the stage for the Bulldog - Yellowjacket meeting in Billings Saturday between the two undefeated clubs. Northern proved a rough foe here Friday—for the opening 15 minutes. The Lights held an 18-17 edge after eight minutes and 24- 23 after 13 before the Straugh sharpshooters went to work to forge a 44-35 lead at half-time. With Sullivan and Silliker lead ing the parade, the Bulldogs con tinued their accurate basket bar rage following intermission and took a commanding 56-40 spread to allow the reserves a final 15-min ute workout. Western blistered the cords at a 45 percent clip as they swished 37 of 82 fielders but were cool at the foul line with only 12 of 23. North ern hit 36 percent on 25 of 70 from the field but rhanaged only 9 of 21 free tosses. Sophomore guard Dick Silber- man fired the Bulldog barrage with 19 points, 13 in the first half.

Coach Max Nield’s Dillon Beav ers posted what may have been their season’s most vital victory here Friday as they survived a frantic fourth-quarter surge i by Deer Lodge to edge the Wardens in a 54-53 thriller before one of the season’s largest turnouts. The win boosted the Beavers to a 2-1 mark in SW Class B play and dropped the Wardens, a pre-sea son pick, to 1-2. An even-steven barnburner, all the way, the game was deadlocked four times in the opening frame after the Nieldmen twice over came four-point deficits to hold a 13-13 tie at the quarter mark. Deer Lodge held slim leads throughout most of the second stanza before Ed Ferris shot the Beavers to 25-24 and 27-26 mar gins in the closing minutes. A last second lay-up by Tom Straugh sent the locals ahead 29-28 a t half time. A tough Dillon defense limited the Powell five to only eight points in the third period as the Beavers pulled to six-point leads at 36-30, 40-34 and 42-36 going into the final frame. Furious Fourth A bucket by Jon Womack and a three pointer by Jerry Donovan shot the Beavers ahead 47-36 with only six minutes remaining but a rash of successful free throw con versions by the Wardens quickly moved them back into contention. A pair of charity tosses by Ham blin knotted the count at 51-51 with 1:45 left. Donovan cashed a gift shot to pull Dillon back in the lead but big Dave Enger, a rugged Warden workhorse, dropped a pair of foul shots to send the visitors in front, 53-52, at the minute mark. Jim Womack calmly swished another charity pair to make it 54- 53 Dillon with 33 seconds remain ing and the locals regained con trol of the ball and called time out at the 28-second mark. Winning Shot' Blocked Deer Lodge stole the ensuing in-bounds pass and Enger, who had already notched 24 big mark ers, was given the ball for a final second shot which was deflected and rebounded by the Beavers. Jerry Stone, last week’s hero against Salmon, pushed up a 10- footer which cut the cords as the final buzzer sounded but, following an officials’ huddle, the basket was ruled out and Dillon had its one- point victory. . The closeness of the contest was indicated by final statistics which showed both clubs with 20 field goals. The Beavers took the game at the foul line, hitting 14 of 21 while Deer Lodge converted 13 of 23. Guards Ed Ferris and Jim Wo mack fired the Beaver attack with 18 and 17 points respectively while Enger took game laurels with his 24.

The new publication combines a directory of Montana firms inter ested in government procurement contracts, with supplements on re search and development facilities in the state and detailed informa tion from 38 Montana communities interested in industrial expansion. Included is detailed information on Dillon, which was prepared by Avery Conine, Beaverhead C of C secretary in co-operation with the Montana Chamber’s industrial committee. \This directory is the first of its kind, combining up-to-date and es sential information that will be of extreme usefulness in giving in formation to firms and industries exploring possibilities of Montana investment,\ said a joint statement from Director Thomas J. Collins of the state planning board and President John E. Tenge of the Montana Chamber of Commerce. \The section providing detailed Information from 38 communities would not have been possible without the co-operation and work of local Chambers of Commerce and other citizens’ groups.\ The 144-page publication is in three sections—one devoted to the community surveys, another listing firms interested in government procurement contracts and a third a survey of the three units of the University of Montana system that provide or desire government and private enterprise research and de velopment contracts. They are Montana State University, Mon tana State College and Montana School of Mines.
