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 order was announced Monday night by Ecuadorian foreign minister Jose Maria Ponce Yepes, who chose to ignore an Organization of American States resolution passed the day before urging the two sides not to aggravate the dispute. Ecuador’s action stemmed from the suspension by the United States of military sales to Ecuador on Jan. 18 following a series of seizures of American fishing vessels. Ponce Yepes called the step a “coercive measure” and said it was “characteristic of the bitter C a s i n o s E a g e r l y A w a i t C a r t w h e e l s I t C o s t s t o D u m p A t L a n d f i l l S i t e Postal Rates Revealed WASHINGTON (AP) — Hie U.S. Postal Service announced today plans to raise virtually all classes of postage, including two cents for first-class mail and one cent for airmail.

Laird told a hostile Senate Armed Services Committee today that reducing draft calls to zero by mid-1973 would be difficult. But he said the goal could be met with the support of Congress and the public. Laird, urging extension of in duction authority—as proposed by President Nixon—for two years State Drug Team Lists Next Stops A Montana state training team on knowledge of drugs and drug abuse will begin a series of local level training series for com munity leaders in February, ac cording to Dolores Colburg, superintendent of public in struction for Montana. The state team consists of Frank Hull of Dillon, Joseph Boyd of Ashland, George Swartz of Shelby, Gary Hall of Great Falls and Mrs. Dianne Tripp of Lolo. The state team was trained under the direction of the State Consortium on Drug Education. The five-man team will now go into White Sulphur Springs, Helena, Livingston, Great Falls, Glendive, Butte, Libby, Conrad, Whitefish and Missoula to present the drug education training program. The program is funded through the United States Office of Education and is sponsored by Mrs. Colburg’s office. The five members bring to the team a variety of experience and expertise about drugs and drug problems. Mrs. Tripp, a recent graduate in psychology from the University of Montana, served as a volunteer worker at a drug crisis center in Honolulu, Hawaii. Hàll is a member of the Great Falls police force where he has been closely associated with the legal aspects of drug abuse. Swartz presently serves as counselor for the Shelby school system and has worked as a counselor in thè men’s dormitory at Montana State University. Boyd is a counselor for an alcoholism program serving eastern Montana. He has developed an alcohol and drug education and counseling program for several cohuminitiea in this area of the state. Hull, a high school English teacher. in the Dillon school system, also serves as juvenile probation officer in theL area. gh L a i r d P u l l ex- beyond its present June 30 piration date, said the task of achieving an all-volunteer Army “is a most difficult one.” “But I believe we can meet that goal,” he said, “if we in the Defense Department vigorously pursue the program we have formulated to reduce draft calls to zero, if the Congress supports this program by appropriate legis lative action, and if the general public gives support by a positive attitude toward military service.” In opening the hearing on Se lective Service legislation, Chairman John C. Stennis, D- Miss., said “the volunteer ob jective to me is a flight from reality unless the size of the armed forces is to be reduced in the years ahead far below any figures I consider our minimum requirements.” He added he did not oppose the volunteer concept in principle but that national security demanded continued induction of servicemen. Laird noted 163,500 men were inducted in 1970, the smallest draft call since 1964. “We are on the way to the goal of zero draft calls,” Laird said. For the 1972 fiscal year he said the manpower strength of U.S. armed forces would be ap proximately 2M> million, requiring 528.000 new enlisted personnel and 43.000 new officers. “Without the draft,” Laird said, “we believe that all services would experience manpower shortages, but the Army would suffer most.” In addition, he said, loss of the draft during the next two years wpuld hurt enlistments in the reserve forces. Besides using a two-year ex tension of the draft law, Laird said it was very important for Congress to authorize roughly $1 billion in pay increases for enlisted per sonnel in the lower grades.

First-class stamps would go from six to eight cents and airmail stamps from 10 to 11 cents under the proposal. The postal Board of Governors formally submitted the proposal to the rate commission The increases in second and third-class rates would be spread over a five-year period, with one- fifth of the proposed increase becoming effective each year. Under postal reform legislation approved last year, the postal service may put at least part of the increases into effect within 100 days if the rate commission does not act. That would make May 11 the effective date for regular and airmail stamp price increases. The service, however, said May 15 would be the effective date—102 days from Monday. In addition to the general rate increase, postcards would be raised from five cents to seven cents and airmail postcards from eight cents to nine cents.

C o n n a l l y V i o l a t i o n WASHINGTON (AP) - Former Gov. John B. Connally of Texas, denying he violated Texas law by accepting private payments as governor, said today he gave up almost $500,000 in legal fees in order to become secretary of the Navy in 1961. Connally gave his testimony to the Senate Finance Committee which is considering his nom ination to be secretary of the Treasury. He asked for the open hearing so he could reply to a New York Times story of Monday which publicized money he got frojm the Sid Richardson Foundation. He said he not only had not vi olated any Texas laws by ac cepting fees for settling the Rich ardson estate well before he became governor; but he gave up between “$400,000 and $500,00d” that he said would have been due him as executor in order to clear his financial matters at the time of > becoming Navy secretary. \I don’t regret it but I don’t think I ought to be ipilloried for it,” Connally told the Senate Finance Committee. Connally said he was due, as co executor of the estate, a total of $1.3 million but he set a sum for himself of $760,000 - instead, funds after giving the state reasonable notice and an op portunity for a hearing.” He said since cutoff of money “is prospective only, we cannot require a non-complying state to give retroactive relief to those who have suffered loss of assistance because of the state’s failure to comply with federal re quirements.” Richardson proposed an amendment to permit continued payments to a state in certain situations where, after a hearing, it is found that there is substantial failure on the part of the state to comply with the federal plan requirements. “This could be done when the non-compliance cannot be cor rected immediately provided (the welfare secretary) receives assurance that appropriate steps are being taken to achieve full compliance.” “We also propose that, as an alternative to the cutoff of federal funds, the secretary be authorized to request the attorney general to bring suit to require compliance for so long as the state continues to accept federal payments,” Richardson added. D e n i e s o f L a w because of the présa of time before he was sworn in as secretary of the Navy. He said his testimony this morning was the first time he had revealed publicly that “I took $400,000 to $500,000 less in order to serve my country.\ He said the $750;000 fee which he accepted as one of three co executors of the Richardson estate was spread over ten yearly payments to improve the tax situation. But he declared that the services to the estate had been performed nearly four years before he was swbrn in as gover nor. The Times story reported In ternal Revenue Service filings by the Richardson foundation be tween 1966 and 1969 indicating a $225,000 debt to Connally and payments of $75,000 a year to him. The newspaper quoted from the Texas .constitution provision on governors receiving outside in come and questioned whether Connally might have run afoul of the law. “The monies I received were vested long before I became governor,” Connally said. “I vi olated no constitutional provision for receiving these payments and I have no apologies to make for collecting that' valid debt.” ! put in back rooms. The mint last week struck the first of the new Eisenhower dol lars, a silverless descendent of the old Liberty dollar, with a likeness of the late President Dwight D. Eisenhower on one side. A design honoring the Apollo 11 astronauts is on the other side. About 200 million of the silver dollar-sized coins will be distributed beginning in July. “They better mint about 40 million of them,” said Herbert Harmon, a pit boss at the Strip’s Thunderbird hotel. \People like to play with them. They are really going to move around here.” The gaming industry will have very little trouble converting its 548 dollar slots to accept the Eisenhower dollars, said Ed Bowers, executive secretary of the state Gaming Commission. People here believe the effect of the new dollars will go far beyond those relatively few slots. “It will make a significant dif ference in all Las Vegas business,” said Art Grant, manager of a slot machine club that flourishes in the shadow of the Strip’s pleasure palaces. \We’ll all make more money.” Among the people who will the $1 coins are cocktail waitresses and dealers who depend on tips for most of their income. The silver dollar was a common tip in days gone by. People expect it to become the standard once again.

State Department officials could not give the size of the mission in Ecuador. Two years ago, the U.S. military mission of 50 men stationed in Peru was evicted after the U.S. suspended military sales to that country. The mission never has been invited back. In both the Ecuadorian and Peruvian cases, the action was taken afterU.S. fishing boats were sejzed within the 200-mile territorial limit which the two nations claim. The U.S. regards all waters beyond 12 miles as in ternational territory. The 200-mile claim is based on a 1952 accord between Peru, Chile and Ecuador, and none of the parties has shown any evidence of backing down to the U.S. demand. Peruvian foreign minister Edgardo Mercado Jarrin said last week he hopes the 200-mile limit becomes the “guiding principle\ for all the nations of the third world. In Congress, meanwhile, several legislators have called for further retaliatory action against nations which, by U.S. standards, illegally seize American vessels. A bill before the House Merchant Marine and Fisheries Committee would ban fish imports from any nation seizing an American vessel beyond 12 miles. Another would require the recall of all American ships on loan to countries which harass American fishing boats. T h r e e R o a d FORSYTH (AP) - Rosebud County Coroner W. E. Beals added three more names to the 1971 Montana traffic toll Monday, in cluding the deaths of a Rosebud farm couple whose pickup truck was hit by a Burlington Northern passenger train Monday afternoon at the Rosebud intersection, Paul L. Russell; 69, and his wife, Agatha, 62, died instantly of multiple skull--fractures in the collision, Beals said. The eastbound North Coast Ltd. pushed the battered pickup almost one mile east of the crossing before it stopped. Beals said Russell was thrown from the vehicle one block, while Mrs. Russell was pinned in the wrecked truck, whose motor had been ejected by the force of the crash. In a Saturday accident, the coroner said his sister, Mrs. Merriman (Dolores) Horton, 49, of Billings, was killed Saturday four miles west of Forsyth on Interstate 94. He said the Horton vehicle went into a skid, spinning around in the road directly in the path of an oncoming car. The deaths brought to 12 this year’s count, as compared with 19 on this day one year ago.
