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.

The oath wóuld ask teachers to “promote respect for the flag and the institutions” of the U.S. and Montana, “reverence for law and order and undivided allegiance to the government of the United Slates of America and the State of Montana.” All Montana teachers, including those in the university system, would have to sign the oath before they sign their contract of em ployment. As sponsoring Sen. Frank Ha- zelbaker, R-Dillon, told the Senate Education Committee Saturday, “If they sign it, they get the job. If they don’t, they don’t get the job.” The Senate voted 29-26 for the bill, notwithstanding searching rebuttal from Democrats Sen. Neil Lynch of Butte, Sen. John Sheey of Billings and Majority Leader Dick Dzivi of Great Falls and several last-gasp parliamentary tactics. Lynch made the point that if teachers are asked to sign the oath, “We’ll be forcing them to do som ething unconstitutional, something that the U. S. Supreme Court already has ruled against.” Hazelbaker was supported by Sen. G. W. “Por” Deschamps, R- Missoula, who said: “I’m just a country toy and I think we should listen to what some of the other country boys said when they started our government.

He said there was little chance of recovering any of the coin collection or other items, as Baruth had probably disposed of the stolen items over a wide area. During the investigation, it was discovered that Baruth had gone to a neighboring community and attempted to trade the coin collection picked up in Dillon for one belonging to a legitimate dealer. The two sets of coins were laid out on a table as the interested parties made the trade. The owner of the second collection was to pay an additional amount for the coins he wanted, and when he left Baruth with the two collections to get the money, Baruth calmly took both sets and disappeared. wear jeans, saddle pants or slacks to classes. Ostrom said the code is discriminatory in that it doesn’t mention toys. He said he was dissuaded from filing a suit at this time because Deputy County Atty. Dean Jellison, legal counsel to the board, told board members Sunday that the present code could not be legally enforced. “I’m not out to damage the community,” Ostrum said. The suit contemplated by Os trom would question the board’s authority to set such a dress code. His two daughters, Lori, 14, and Cory, 16, were suspended from their respective junior and senior high schools earlier this month because they wore pants suits to class. Ostrom, 40, said the pants suits stratagem was a “ tongue in cheek” move on his part to test what he regarded as arbitrary and incomprehensible rules. He went so far as to advise school officials that his daughters would be so garbedr .......... He said he sees the right to wear distinctive clothes as a valid form of self-expression. Many well- wishers have called him to say they are “glad you’re doing it,” he said. “We have a second-class school system,” Ostrom said. “An effort is made to run institutions of confinement and repression. There’s no leadership to make school fun and an interesting ex perience.” Cartwheel Unveiled PHILADELPHIA (AP) - The first $1 coin to be minted since before World War II depicts Gen. Dwight D. Eisenhower on one side and the American eagle on the other. Unlike its predecessor, it will contain no silver. The design for the new $1 coin, first to be struck since 1935, was unveiled Monday at the U.S. Mint by its designer, Frank Gasparro, and Mary T. Brooks, director of the mint. In what engravers call a trial strike, a large orange coin press exerted 130 tons of pressure on a blank silver disc, producing a stern Big Butch, Little Butch A familiar scene at Western Montana College practice sessions is the father-son combination of Butch McEnaney, stellar Bulldog forward, and his three-year-old son, Jerry. While his father attends to the more serious sessions, “ Little Butch” dazzles onlookers with his dribbling display along the sidelines. With this early start, plus the tutoring of his talented dad, WMC fans may well be cheering another McEnaney—say around 1988 or so.

Complaints about shoddy con ditions of “235’’ homes were voiced. Romney blamed Congress in part, saying the Federal Housing Administration had been \almost compelled” to ease restrictions on the program so more housing could be sold to the poor. The secretary met with the dis sident homeowners after they threatened to picket a news con- Soap Manufacturers Come Under the Gun WASHINGTON AP) - The Federal Trade Commission pro posed today that soap manufac turers publicly admit phosphates contribute to water pollution and tell consumers exactly how much of the chemical is in each rec ommended amount of their products. The FTC said the rule would allow the public to compare for the first time the phosphate contents of detergents. Under a proposed regulation made public today, all detergent advertising and each package of the soap would have to clearly and conspicuously state: \Warning: Each recommended use level of this product contains ( ( grams of phosphorus, which contributes to water pollution. Do not use in excess. In soft water Four Said Executed In Guinea PARIS (AP) Sources in areas, use of phosphates is not necessary.” The proposed rule, which cannot become final until approved by the five-m e m b e r com m ission following a public hearing, also would require a list on detergent packages of all ingredients by their common names. That provision would include enzyme additives, which have been criticized for possible harmful effects on humans, said Wayne Cooper, the FTC lawyer who wrote the proposed rule. Phosphates are put in detergents to soften water so that other ingredients can do an effective job of cleaning. The detergent in dustry, while admitting privately that phosphates do contribute to water pollution, maintains they are the safest water softening ingredient available. The Soap and Detergent Asso ciation, whose members include most detergent makers, took issue with the FTC proposal. \Any need for phosphate in formation for the consumer has already been met by the industry, which announced on Nov. 9, 1970, that household laundry and dish washer detergents would be Guinea reported by telephone tn t i l f Î L î T / today that four of the 58 persons awaiting execution for plotting to overthrow President Sekou Toure have been hanged in Conakry, the Guinean capital. All four had been leading of ficials of Toure’s government. The sources discounted reports that all 58 of the condemned per sons had been executed at various places in the West African country. The sources said there had been no indication of any hangings outside Conakry. In addition to the 58 under arrest in Conakry who were sentenced to death Sunday, another 3$ were condemned to death in absentia and 66 defendants were given life imprisonment. The sources in Conakry said four persons were hanged between 5 and 5:30 a.m. Monday on a bridge on a main street in the capital. The sources said they were Balde Ousmane, former secretary of stale for planning; Ibrahima Barry, also known as Barry Trois, former secretary of state for finance; Keita Kara, former commissioner of police, and Makassouba Mouriba, former director of national security. Radio Conakry announced today that “enemies of the Guinean people” condemned Sunday for attempting to overthrow Toure were hanged in Conakry Monday, but gave no details. cent of phosphorous in the formula, and also its equivalent in grams per recommended use level.\ But Cooper said the decision to issue the proposed rule came after review by the FTC of the voluntary disclosure plan proposed by the association. He said the dis closures by at least some of the association’s members appeared “clearly deceptive and totally inadequate.” He acknowledged the industry probably would fight the proposal possible on the basis of the cost of changing packages. Phosphates in rivers and lakes of the United States have been blamed for an alarming increase in the growth of algae, which use up oxygen in the water and pose a hazard to other forms of water life. Hospital Reports Condition Good Bill Nelson, a member of the OK Tire Shop staff, who was injured last Wednesday in an unusual accident at the shop where a tire exploded, is reported in very good condition at a Great Falls hospital. The accident opened a large cut over Nelson’s eye, resulted in a skull fracture and a broken nose. There was no eye damage and Nelson is expected to be released later in the week. ference at the Hilton Hotel. A statement circulated at the hotel during Romney’s news con ference said: “Strange, isn’t it, to have to come to the Hilton to find Romney and FHA officials talking about us and our problems. How about meeting in our ‘235’ homes if you really want to know what’s wrong with your low-income housing program.” Stephen Idema, an attorney with the homeowners, charged that the FHA failed to inspect “235\ homes before sale or to reimburse pur chasers for repairs. Among complaints, Idema said were leaky furnaces, dangerous wiring, illegally bad plumbing, an exploded boiler, and inflated purchase prices. After a 30-minute meeting with Romney, Idema said he was disappointed by the secretary’s apparent helplessness to aid the homeowners. Romney suspended FHA loan approvals on existing houses ear lier this month after a House Hanking Committee report charged the “235” program was financing \instant slums.” Some money remained available for new-home mortgages. According to Idema, the 1970 National Housing Act authorizes the FHA to make repairs in the wake of faulty FHA appraisals. But Romney told Idema there is doubt whether Congress intended to subsidize repairs. Romney said he had received more complaints abut the “235” program from Denver than other western cities. Reported abuses were far more frequent in the East, he added. Under the \235” program, low income families may have their home loans guaranteed by the government. The government also subsidizes interest payments. Romney was in Denver for a meeting of FHA officials from the western states. Problems stem ming from the “235 plan” were on the agenda. Judge Hit By Ashtray During Court DENVER (AP) — An ashtray thrown at Judge Merle K. Knous bruised his forehead Monday after he denied a request for bond in his Denver District Courtroom. Deputies immediately wrestled Clifton Ashley, 33, to the floor and handcuffed him. “He was staring at me and I asked if he had anything to say,\ Judge Knous said, recounting the episode. Ashley, accused of stabbing his wife during a July rock’n’roll concert, waB scheduled to go on trial Monday. Judge Knous con tinued the case until Thursday. The judge said defense and prosecution attorneys had agreed a murder charge would be dropped if Ashley pleaded guilty to voluntary manslaughter. After Ashley en tered his plea according to plan, the defense asked for bond, the prosecution objected, and Judge Knous denied the bond.
