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.

Fighting broke out during.the day Tuesday as the coffins of two fallen Roman Catholics were drawn through Protestant districts, the Irish Republic tri color covering them and Irish Republican Army members m black berets in escort. Angry Protestants snatched the flag from one coffin and hurled bricks and bottles at the other one. A policeman was clubbed to the ground before other security forces could intervene. Prime Minister James Chich- ester-Clark announced that his government is considering emergency regulations to insure that corteges “ cannot with im punity be given the features of provocative political displays.” Although the IRA is banned in both Northern Ireland and the Irish Republic to the south, its members operate more or less openly in Catholic districts in the North, waging their war to expel the British and unite Protestant Northern Ireland with the Catholic South. Political and religious leaders throughout the province con demned guerrillas whose land mine killed five civilians on a mountain road Tuesday. Jack Lynch, prime minister of the republic, also assailed “ the evil perpetrators of this malicious and cowardly deed.” In a statement from his Dublin office, Lynch said Ireland would be reunited only by peaceful means and condemned “ any group who advocate of use force, whether it be for the reunification of our country or to maintain the status quo.” . P o lite ir 'B e i r a S r said they suspect saboteurs were respon sible for a big fire in a timber yard Tuesday. The flames shot more than 100 feet into the air, threatening the harbor district, and more than 70 firemen were called out. mer |n Quake A b o u t D e c e i v i n g C u s t o m e r s Ward, Spiegel Firms Warned WASHINGTON (AP) — The Federal Trade Commission today accused two of the nation’s largest mail order firms, Montgomery Ward & Co., Inc., and Spiegel, Inc., of deceiving customers on credit terms.

Great Falls Road Death GREAT FALLS (AP) - A for mer Cascade County Assessor, L. A.

It is a wholly owned subsidiary of Marcor, Inc., of Chicago, also named in the proposed complaint. Spiegel, which operates only on a mail order basig, bad sales of $320 million in 1968. The FTC’s proposed complaint contends Montgomery Ward catalogues failed to disclose how the balance is computed for figuring finance charges, failed to tell customers who take out special mortgages to finance home im provements that they have three days to cancel the transaction, and failed to disclose credit terms on required minimum payments for catalogue items. The complaint alleges also Montgomery Ward’s advertised claim that no monthly payments would be required on an item until a certain date misled customers into believing finance charges would not be imposed until the first installment came due. Actually, the FTC said, finance charges are imposed monthly after the first 30 days. The complaint against Spiegel charges the firm sold credit life insurance to new customers without obtaining the required permission of the customer, failed to disclose on statements the date by which payment must be made to avpid finance charges and misled credit customers as to the method of computing finance charges. Although Spiegel advertises offers of free trials o f merchandise and of 25 per cent discounts to the general public, persons ordering merchandise under such offers .must satisfy the firm’s credit requirement before merchandise is sent to them, the complaint said. Under FTC procedures, both firms may negotiate a voluntary settlement. Should the firm s contest the allegations, a hearing examiner would weigh the evidence and recommend a formal decision by the commission. Commission orders can be contested in federal appeals courts.

Anderson says he hopes Fish and Game Department Director Frank Dunkle runs for governor. Anderson, in an interview, said he has not yet decided whether to accept the resignations of the five- man Fish and Game Commission, a mass proposed exodus sparked by the governor’ s continuing dismay with the controversial Dunkle. Anderson, a Democrat, said a proposed legislative amendment that would leave the Fish and Game Department as an inde pendent agency under executive reorganization is \the legislature’s business if it wants to set Fish and Game off like some God-like thing.” \But if he (Dunkle) gets this awful authority,” Anderson said, “ let him run for governor. I hope he does run. That will solve the whole problem. “ Maybe we’ve found a messi- ah.” On the commission resignation, Anderson said he would not make a decision until the legislature decides Fish and Game’s status under Anderson’s pet executive reorganization program. Anderson said he would, decide whether to accept or reject the resignations after the 42nd Legislature decides how the.Fish and Game Director will be^ appointed and what authority the j6f> will carry. “ If the legislature makes them (the com m issioners) non functional, I’lr accept the resig nations,\ Anderson said. He said he told the commis sioners early last year that he would not get involved in their attempt to remove the director, and would have their resignations if they tried and failed. Anderson said the news media has been responsible for making his disagreements with Dunkle into a personality clash. “ I like Frank,” he said, “ and he’s an able administrator.” The governor said, “ This is a matter of principle. If they want to run Fish and Game as a sort of fiefdom—and the legislature wants them to—let them do it. But I have some real serious reservations Continued on page 3 Grant Riders Place at Spencer Ned Wellborn and Toby Shew of Grant placed second in the 45-mile cross-country snowmobile races at Spencer, Idaho during the past weekend. A powder-puff 25-mile cross country was also held, with DeEsta Wellborn and Jessie Shew, also of Grant, placing third and fourth, respectively. So heavy and so interlocked were huge chunks of concrete from the virtually leveled three-story structures that rescuers said it might be another day or more before all victim s could be reached. Although cries of “ Help me! Help m e !” could be heard Tuesday night, authorities said there was little likelihood of more survivors being found. The bodies of five -persons were extricated in the night and early morning hours. Nestled on a slope covered with trees and brush and overlooking a vast section of middle and upper- middle-class Los Angeles homes, the Van Norman Dam showed two cracks 20 feet long and 18 inches wide. An earthquake Tuesday caused half of a 3,000-foot concrete apron to slip into one of the dam’s twin reservoirs. Police Chief Edward Davis or dered evacuation although the city water and power department, which operates the dam, said there would be no leakage unless there was another earthquake. “ I have issued an order to my men to not save anyone who doesn't want to be saved,” Davis said. Police in patrol cars, using bullhorns, sped through the area telling residents to leave. Some valley dwellers spent the night at evacuation centers set up at three high schools. Others stayed with friends. Only street lights burned in the evacuated, sealed-off area. Officials said they would have the dam drained to a safe level by tonight. Pumps were used to discharge water into Bull Creek, eventually feeding the valuable drinking water into the Pacific Ocean. When the earthquake struck there was 3.6 billion gallons of water in the larger of the reser voirs. On Dec. 14, 1963, a break in the Baldwin Hills Dam 20 miles south of the valley spilled about 2.3 billion-gallons of water, killing five persons and destroying 64 homes. Most of the lowlands homes nearest the dam cost $40,000 and up, a city official said. They are in the bedroom communities of Granada Hills, Northridge, Mis sion Hills, Reseda, Canoga Park and Van Nuys. Robert Noel, a dam custodian whose home is at the base of the reservoir, declined to evacuate his family. \If it hasn’t busted yet, I don’t think it will,” Noel said. Officials estimated damage to the 60-year-old dam at $12.2 mil lion.
