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 Libras LEGISLATIVE REPORT from Helena By Frank Hazelbaker Most of the action of. the Leg islature’s first week was centered around the House of Representa tives. The House organized early, hired its employees, and was busy introducing bills the first legisla tive day. On the other hand, the Senate majority spent most of its first week appointing committees and hiring help. Few bills were in- triduced there. However, the House now has about seventy bills in committee. This new record does not mean that we will have more bills than ever before, but it does seem to indicate that my spirit of \get to work early and go, go, go” is popular among the members. Colleges in Spotlight As usual, the small schools of the University System came in for early attention. A Billings legisla tor voiced his opinion in the press that schools at Dillon, Havre and Butte should be made into trade schools. He was duly straightened out the next day on the floor of the House by the other eight mem bers from Billings, as well as by your Speaker from Dillon and the minority leader from Butte. You probably saw the first press re lease of the incident, but may have missed the second. A bill in the Senate would place the smaller schools under the jur isdiction of Missoula and Bozeman. This would supposedly eliminate duplication of curricula, etc. Sen ator Brenner will take a long, careful look at that one. Primary Election Bill A late primary election bill has been introduced, and I understand the authors themselves are not too enthusiastic about it, when they stop to realize that a state candidate who would like to spend but one day in each county would have a sixty day job on his hands, unless he campaigned on Sunday. By so doing, lie could make all fif ty six counties in fifty six days. (Poor guy.) Overhaul Eyed Two similar bills overhauling the Foundation Program have been in troduced; one in the House and one in the Senate. They differ slightly in the state and county levels of participation. If we want educa tion for our children (and we do), we are going to have to pay for it. It makes little difference which pocket we take it out of. Three Grazing Bills Up Three grazing fee bills have been introduced in the House. Two call for a sliding scale formula which would not penalize the lessees, of marginal land, but would exact higher fees from the lessees of the more preferred tracts. The third bill is a blanket increase, as un fair as the bill killed last season. It won’t last long, and a decision will be made between the first two. Incidentally, one of the bills has a formula arived at by an al gebraic equation almost as com plex as the one my wife uses to bake brownies. Best chuckle of the week: Chief Clerk in House read the follow ing announcement then did a ‘dou ble take' and held his head: \The Democratic Women’s g e t ac quainted tea has been temporarily postponed indefinitely.” VOLUME NUMBER 1 DILLON, MONTANA TUESDAY, JANUARY 15, 1963 NO. 36 Hamilton Leads S W Loop on Perfect 4-0 Mark Coach Joe McDonald’s Hamilton Broncs, overlooked by many early- season prognosticators, ran their Southwestern Class B mark to a perfect 4-0 with weekend victories over Helena Cathedral and Ana conda Central. Tabbed one of the slickest shoot ing clubs to come out of the SW loop in recent years, the blistering Broncs knocked off previously un beaten Cathedral, 52-41, and Ana conda Central, 50-43, over the weekend. The McDonald men face a rugged road test this weekend when they go up against the pre-season fav orites, Dillon and Deer Lodge. Dillon’s Beavers, with one of the state’s top performers in Ed Fer ris, tripped the Deer Lodge War dens in a 54-53 barnburner and took over the loop’s runner-up spot on a 2-1 mark. The Wardens rebounded with a 55-47 nod over Loyola to even their record at 2-2 and move into a third place tie with the surprising Stevensville Yellowjackets, who notched wins over Cathedral and Anaconda Central. This week’s schedule has Ana conda Central hosting Loyola and Cathedral; Dillon entertaining Ste vensville and Hamilton; and Deer Lodge also playing at home against the two Bitterroot clubs.
