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.

H. E. Contway, clerk of the District Court, announced that he had received today from Resolute Insurance Company two drafts in the amount of $7,500 each on the forfeited bond of the defendant, Morse, who failed to appear in District Court last February to stand trial on a charge of robbery. The bonding company had posted the $15,000 bond to guarantee his appearance. When he failed to appear, the late Philip C.. Duncan, then the district judge, ordered his bond forfeited; and when the bonding company failed to pay, Beaverhead County Attorney Carl M. Davis obtained a judgment against Morse and his surety, the Resolute Insurance Company, for the amount of the bond. The judgment was obtained on Feb. 2, 1970, and thereafter the matter was appealed by the bonding company to the Montana Supreme Court. Following the appeal, Davis filed a motion to dismiss the appeal, which motion was granted by the Supreme Court last Thursday. Robert Eugene Morse, together with Robert Dimler and Roy Goodenough, had been charged by County Attorney Davis with robbery of Ernest R. Swazey, Jr., and Edwin Oswald, an act allegedly committed Sept. 30, 1969. The defendants allegedly held up Swazey and Oswald at gunpoint, took $224 from the victims, bound and gagged them, and headed south on Highway 91 in a station wagon, where they were apprehended in flight by the local authorities. Dimler and Goodenough entered pleas of guilty to the robbery charges, and each received ten-year sentences to the State Prison. Morse pleaded not guilty to the charge, obtained his release under the $15,000 bond, and failed to appear last Feb. 2, the date set for his trial. Morse has not been seen since his release from jail and is being sought nationwide by the authorities and officials and agents of the bonding company. I^e is wanted by the FBI for unlawful flight. Head ôf Interior Promises Balance By LAWRENCE L. KNUTSON Associated Press Writer WASHINGTON (AP) — Rep. Rogers C. B. Morton, R-Md., testified today that as secretary of the interior he will try to forge a better balance between the economy and the environment to avoid “a day of reckoning in which man will inevitably be the loser.” Harry Mular * Rites Tuesday Rosary will be recited Monday evenings at 7:30, followed by military rites by the United Veterans Council with funeral services Tuesday afternoon at 2 in the Duggan Merrill Mortuary at Butte for Harry Mular, a retired Anaconda Company smelterman who died Sunday in a Butte Hospital. Mr. Mular was a native of Poland and had lived in Butte 34 years. He was a member of the United Veterans Council, having served with the army in World War I. He is survived by his widow Lena; sons-in-law and daughters, Mr. and. Mrs. James Fischer of Butte and Mr. and Mrs. Claude Ankeny of Dillon; sons and daughters-in-law, Mr. and Mrs. Jim Mular of Butte, Mr. and Mrs. William Mular of Dillon, Mr. and Mrs. Harry Mular Jr. of Kalispell, and Mr. and Mrs. Andrew Mular of Kingston, Ontario; a brother, Andrew Mularski, and a sister, Mary Wargati, both in Canada; 14 grandchildren and one great­ grandchild. The former GOP national chairman told the Senate Interior Committee he hopes to decide within a month of his confirmation what to do about oil leases in California’s Santa Barbara Chan­ nel, site of a disastrous oil spill in 1969. And he pledged that the de­ partment under his leadership, will do everything possible to assure that a trans-Alaska oil pipeline will be safe and com­ patible to the environment of the land it will bisect. He promised also to work for a national fuels and energy policy to prevent the United States from becoming totally dependent on oil reserves in potentially unfriendly nations such as those in the war- plagued Middle East. The committee hearing was on Morton’s selection to replace Secretary Walter J. Hickel, who was fired late last year by Pres­ ident Nixon. “I am convinced that the priority of our environment must be brought into equity with that of our economy and our defense. Otherwise, at some point in time, how far in the future we do not know, there will be no economy to enjoy, and practically no reason for defense,” Morton said. “If we do not master the changes required, the day of reckoning will come in which man will inevitably be the loser.” Drug Charge At Poison Senator Russell BurieçJ in Georgia WINDER, Ga. (AP) — Sen. Richard Russell, dean and pres­ ident pro tern of the Senate and advisor to five presidents, has been buried beside his mother dnd father in a family cemetery on a pine-covered north Georgia hill. An estimated 1,500 persons, incliding an official delegation led by Secretary of State William Rogers and Defense Secretary Melvin Laird, braved a biting cold wind and rain Sunday to attend. A Sizeable delegation of state officials and legislators was led by Gov. Jimmy Carter, who must now select a man to finish Russell’s term, which runs through 1972. . Carter has said there will be no decision for at least a week POLSON (AP) - Nancy F. Ward, 18, of Missoula, was ar­ rested Friday on a charge of illegal possession of dangerous drugs. Lake County Sheriff’s authorities said officers apprehended Miss Ward when they became suspicious of a broken seal on a tobacco package. She was in the jail to visit Victor Dworshak, 28, a prisoner being held on a burglary charge.

Harr as president, has come to the aid of a Dillon family in a somewhat dif­ ferent way. Gary Sykes, son of Mr. and Mrs. Emil Sykes of 510 Chestnut has been a victim of asth­ ma since birth and must use an oxygen inhaler-aspirator 20 minutes, twice daily, to control the condition. Emil Sykes, who works with a construction company, had been trying to find one of the home machines for his son, who often suffered the choking attacks and would have to be taken to the hospital for treatment. Members of the local ambulance organization heard of the problem,' and two members, Harr and Ed Swetish recalled the standby inhaler-aspirator in storage.

A broadcast over Radio Uganda at 4 p.m. local time—the first announcement broadcast since the fighting began in the early hours this morning—claimed that Obote had been deposed in his absence by the military. The broadcast—made by an army officer—said power would be handed over “to the soldiers.” Determined Grocer Keeps After Thieves Obote, who had not yet returned from the Commonwealth summit conference in Singapore, was accused in the broadcast of ignoring army demands for better living conditions and showing favoritism in allocating top government jobs. The broadcast said “the army takes over power today and warns all foreign countries to keep noses out of Uganda’s internal affairs. Radio reports said Maj. Gen. Idi Amin, commander of Uganda’s armed forces, was heading the rebel faction. Amin came on the air today to ask for calm. • Obote. 45, became prime min­ ister of Uganda in October 1962 when it gained its freedom after being a British protectorate for 68 years. He became president in February 1966, deposing Sir Ed­ ward Frederick Mutesa, the figurehead president who fled to to Die * ' 3 . ’ : Í In Guinea MONROVIA, Liberia (AP) - Guinea is going to execute 58 persons convicted of taking part in the invasion of the west African nation last November. Another 66 were sentenced to life in prison, including a Roman Catholic arch­ bishop. . Oil Slick Cleanup Half Done ambulance equipment replaced by the new ambulance with a different oxygen administration system. It was taken out of the storage room, checked over and delivered. The five-year-old boy attends kindergarten in the afternoons, and hip parents say the condition seems to be improving with regular use of the machine, which administers prescribed medication in the daily treatments. By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS Nearly half the oil dumped into the San Francisco Bay a week ago has been recovered. But on the East Coast, officials are seeking a way to remove nine million gallons of oil from a tanker that ran aground at the harbor in New Haven, Conn. Authorities said there was no evidence of damage to waterfowl or marine life in the New Haven spill. In California, there was a sharp dropoff of damaged birds reported. About 2,500 oil-soaked birds were being treated in cleansing stations by volunteers. Standard Oil of California re­ ported that round-the-clock op­ erations involving 700 workmen and thousands of volunteers have recovered 399,000 gallons of the estimated 840,000 gallons of ship fuel oil spilled into the San Fran­ cisco Bay when two company tankers collided in heavy fog last Monday. The Coast Guard prepared today to open a hearing into the spill, which has left most of the oil churning around water outside the Golden Gate Bridge. Standard had 19 skimmers op­ erating Sunday, 16 inside the bay and three outside picking up oil streaks as far as 12 miles at east and north 35 miles to Drake's Beach and 25 miles south to Half Moon Bay. At New Haven, officials waited to see which way a big oil slick, caused when a Humble Oil Co. tanker ran aground Saturday, was going to move. Nine of the ship’s oil com­ partments on the port side were ruptured and 386,000 gallons of home heating oil spilled into the channel. Much of the oil moved into Long Isjand Sound. Connecticut Water Resources Commission official Russell Dibble said that since the accident the pressure inside the ruptured compartments had equalized with the pressure outside and that no more oil would be forced out as long as the situation remained stable. He said none of the remaining oil in the tanker, the Esso Gettysburg, had been unloaded because of the danger of upsetting the pressure balance. None of the oil had washed up on New Haven beaches despite strong onshore winds Sunday. Guinean President Sekou Toure had charged the invasion was led by Portuguese mercenaries, but there was no indication that any Portuguese were among those sentenced. The sentences were announced Sunday in Conakry during a rally in the Conakry football stadium. The sentences were given by the National Assembly, sitting as a “supreme revolutionary court.\ The broadcast said Msgr. Raymond-Marie Tchidimbo, the Catholic archbishop of Conakry, was sentenced to life at hard labor. Among others receiving life terms was a West German citizen, Adolf Marx. Another West Ger­ man, Herman Siebold, who Guinean authorities said com­ mitted suicide in hiscell, was given a life sentence posthumously. The names of those sentenced to death were not given, but most of those on trial were Guinean exiles and Guineans taken prisoner at the time of the invasion. The radio said 33 additional death sentences in absentia were pronounced. President Toure has said that he will extend no clemency. It was believed that those condemned to death would be executed publicly, Toure charged that the invaders came from Portuguese Guinea, that the Portuguese Navy trans­ ported them and that they were led by mercenaries employed by Portugal. Toure’s charges were supported Dec. 8 by a U.N. Security Council resolution based on the findings of a U.N. mission. Portugal denied the charge. Archbishop Tchidimbo is the second Catholic prelate convicted of antigovernment plotting in Africa. Bishop Albert Ndongmo of Cameroon was sentenced to death earlier this month on charges he conspired to kill the country’s president. The sentence was commuted after the Pope and several Western governments appealed for clemency. Another clergyman, the Angli­ can dean of Johannesburg, is under arrest in South Africa and will be tried on charges involving ‘sub­ versive activities,” the security police chief in Johannesburg said today. The government has made public no details of the accusations against Dean Gonville-ffrench Beytagh, but there is speculation that they stem from his handling of funds sent from abroad for the families of political detainees. Truman HoldsOn Beaverhead Bus Lost for Time England. Mutesa, who had for­ merly been monarch of Buganda, known as King Freddie, died in London in November 1969. Uganda, a country of nine million people is linked with Kenya and Tanzania in an East African economic community. The army’s total strength is less than 6,000 men. The Soviet Union and Czecho­ slovakia have assisted in forming a Ugandan air force. Its equipment is reported to include 12 MIG jet fighters. Beaverhead County High School mislaid a 54-passenger bus for a short time Saturday night and Sunday. The bus, which had been left outside, with the keys in it vanished during the night, following the Anaconda-Beaver basketball game. Emerson Selway, BCHS bus driver and custodian, called the Dillon Police Department at 10:13 a.m. Sunday to report the missing vehicle, It was found, undamaged, by a patrol car at 10:20 a.m. parked behind the Sacajawea Motel. There was no indication as to the identity of the driver. KANSAS CITY (AP) - Former President Harry S. Truman’s physician said today that Sunday \was his best day\ since being hospitalized with colitis and that his condition remains fair. The morning bulletin, released by John Dreves, hospital spokesman, said: “His appetite is improving. He had a quiet night, awakening at 6:30 a.m. At 7 a.m. he was taken to the radiology department for the scheduled gastrointestinal examination. Mrs. Truman arrived at 9:20 a.m. to spend the day.” Dreves quoted Truman’s phy­ sician, Dr. Wallace Graham, as saying the 86-year-old former president’s condition remains fair. II was changed from good Sunday because of what Dr. Graham described as \a lack of appetite” and discomfort. Colitis is an inflammation of the large intestine. Truman was hospitalized Thursday in the latest in a series of intestinal difficulties. He was hospitalized in February, 1969, with gastroenteritis and in July, 1966, with severe colitis. Gov. Anderson Pleas for Unity Raymond L. Hansen, 70, a long­ time resident of Beaverhead County died Sunday in a Butte hospital after a lingering illness. Mr. Hansen was born June 20, 1900 in Minneapolis and came to Beaverhead County during the Depression. He worked for Carl Kambich 32 years, ranching. He was a member of World War II Veterans. ■ He is survived by two sons, Donald and Curtis of Minneapolis GEYSER, Mont. (AP) — Two Great Falls men charged with robbing a grocery store of 15 cases of liquor would probably admit that Paul Zitzlsperger is a tough man to shake. Judith Basin County Sheriff Charles Loberg sketched out a chase scenario th^Leven the most devoted Keystone Cop'fancier might envy. Zitzlsperger spotted two men loading the liquor into a pickup truck. When the men started to flee, Zitzlsperger hopped into' his 1950-model car and gave chase. The sheriff said the tenacious grocer pursued the suspected liquor rustlers at a 65 mph clip for 50 miles on Montana Highway 87 until the men were cut off by a ' roadblock at{ Lewistown in Central Montana. Zitzlsperger had earlier forced the getaway vehicle off the high­ way near his Store, but the men escaped on foot, eventually making off in- a stolen Schopl bus. ; ,!; 'i’u“ : “k;'*\ipe route ended, in and none ifoo' sjbfin, _ - r r . . j Zitzlsperget*.

Final Rites Mass of the Resurrection was conducted Monday morning for Frank Riley, 76, who died Thurs- ' day evening at Barrett Hospital. Interment was in the Mountain View Cemetery with Rev. John Sladich officiating. Pallbearers were Jules Wenger, By J. D. HOLMES AP Capitol Writer HELENA (AP) — Gov. Forrest H. Anderson called today for full implementation by this legislature of his No. 1 program — executive reorganization — in order to bridge the gap between governmental performance and promise. The state’s Democratic chief executive paraphrased a recent statement by Republican Presi­ dent Nixon that people will no longer tolerate, and should not have to tolerate, the gap between performance and promise in government. At a news conference in his of­ fice, one floor below the legislature which Tuesday night will hold the first of a series of public hearings on Executive reorganization, Anderson' said the President’s statement was similar to the governor’s campaign position two years ago. Anderson said he believes that the people of Montana and of the nation are looking for order —on the streets, on the college cam­ puses and particularly in govern­ ment. “My first interest is to start servicing people and this is;the Paul Bramsman, Walter . Albert- only wav it can be done,” he said, son,' Frank Lavoie, Pete Lasich and Harry Andrus. > referring to h is' recommended program of executive, reorganl zation whiih is contained in House Bill 3. Anderson said “it’s high time that the legislature have some confidence and trust in the ad­ ministration.” He was talking about reports that some legislators are sug­ gesting an interim study of the reorganization plan while others are suggesting that only a portion of the program be started at this time. Basically, the program, as worked out by an interim com­ mittee backed by about $300,000 in federal and state funds, would condense the number of state agencies from 160 into no more than 20 departments. Most of the departments would have directors responsible to the governor and serving at his pleasure. As a group, these directors would form a cabinet type of government at the state level. Anderson said he called the ne'wsmen to his office because there is considerable misunder­ standing about the plan. He said, for example» that none of the present services of state government would be, eliminated by. reorganization; no federal sweeping change in personnel. It does give the governor the privilege of appointing the heads of 13 major departments. On this point, Anderson said, “I’m just passing through this job. If the people have no confidence in me, two years from now they can throw me out.” He was talking about rumors that the program might make him a czar. “This wouldn’t last through the next election as Montana people just won’t let a czar exist,” Anderson added. Propose Alaska Highway Repair WASHINGTON (AP) - Montana Sens. Lee Metcalf and Mike Mansfield have asked President. Nixon to negotiate with the Canadian government about paving and repairing the Alaska Highway. The senators told the President in a letter that the Federal Aid Highway Act of 1970 which , he recently signed authorizes him to undertake the negotiations. The senators said, “Because of the poor condition of.thdroad.we believe this to be essential if we are ;J à i f ; f j j f ».
