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.

Heart Damage Repaired, Boy Army Getting Along ' traihlng Marches at EL j^w is. -SANTA ^CLARA,'' Calif. (AP) — When he was 9 years olid, spe cialists said John Clemmer would not live through his teens unless they patched up a hole in his.heart the size of a nickel. Now, at 18, he is nearing the end of military basic training, the first man known to have been accepted by the U.S. Army after open heart surgery, his parents said Monday in an interview. Mr. and Mrs. Richard Clemmer said John, their only son, plans to make a career of the Army. Before the surgery, John was a thin, sickly child who tired easily and had to avoid strenuous ac tivity. Today he’s a 175-pound, 6-foot athlete who was a wrestler and football and basketball player in high school as well as a weekend skier. The surgery in July 1961 was one of the first open heart operations by Dr. Norman Shumway, one of the world’s leading heart trans plant physicians. The insertion of a plastic patch in the wall of the heart was an unqualified success, said John’s parents. * When his girlfriend, Lettie Sweet, enlisted in the Women’s Army Corps last year, John de cided to try for military accept ance too. Rejected at first, he got a letter from Dr. Shumway saying there was no longer any heart problem, and the Army decided to give him a series of tests. John was sent to an Army hospital, where doctors approved his enlistment. He went into the Army last Jan. 4 and is scheduled to complete basic Snow Race *r Winners Ted Gould, with h is teammates from Teton City» Idaho, was winner o f ' the second annual 99-mile cross country snowmobile race a t Carroll Hill Saturday.

Acreage Surveys , Planting intention question naires are being prepared for a Feb. 18 mailing to a cross section of Montana farmers and ranchers to obtain their ltfl planting in tentions: By BILL BEECHAM Associated Press Writer HELENA (AP) - There will be no building construction in state government during the next two -ears unless a bill to tax cigarettes in additional four cents is passed in the House, a member of a select Senate subcommittee said Tuesday. State Sen. William H. Bertsche, D-Great Falls, said the state’s entire long-range building program depends upon the success of HB286, a measure that would authorize the sale of an additional $5.5 million in bonds and distributing the state tax on cigarettes. Approval of the bill, which is now being studied by Bertsche’s select Long-Range Building Committee in the Senate and a similar House committee, would provide $10 million toward building projects. Otherwise, says Bertsche, there will be no new buildings. Of the four-cent tax on each package of cigarettes, 3.15 cents would be used as capital to gen erate new money and provide $4 million for the state’s annual debt service. “Die people keep asking us when and what buildings will be put up,\ Bertsche said in an interview. \But they fail to realize that there simply is no money. Nothing. And there won’t be unless this bill passes.” Bertsche said a total of $40 million in construction projects has been requested by various state agencies, including the Montana University System. However, he said, Gov. Forrest H. Anderson has lopped oil $30 million and given the okay to spend $1 million. The two committees, meeting jointly during the session, have been interviewing department heads and administrators at tempting to determine which requests have priority. Here is a list of requests and the amounts that Anderson has outlined in his budget request for the coming fiscal year: — Executive branch, including renovating the capitol building exterior and the governor’s mansion, $278,000; education, in cluding the University System and elementary and secondary education, $5,498,500; health and social assistance, including $1,- 000,000 for a new prison, $2,855,580. — Labor and employment, $498,450; natural resources, in cluding the Fish and Game De partment, $212,000; public safety, $142,175; judicial branch, $2 million. “There are a lot of other requests coming in all the time,” Bertsche said. \The School of Mines in Butte wants $4 million, the University of Montana, $3.8 million for a library and $7.5 million for vocational- technical education.” The Great Falls farmer-busi nessman said the state’s current practice of investing in long-range bonds which carried high amounts of interest will come to an end if HB286 passes both houses. “Well go to the short-term loan on bonds,” he said, “ 10-year bonds. “But, it all depends on the bill. Without it, we will have absolutely nothing towards a building program. There will be no money.” Sunday, 35 volunteer workers will be visiting homes in their neighborhoods asking for con tributions to the heart fund which is conducted to support and expand research, education and com munity service programs of the Beaverhead County Heart Association. In addition to the luncheon and the Heart Sunday drive directed by Mrs. Cottom, Bob Harrison is chairman of the Rural Heart Drive while Ron Wagner has taken charge of the fund raising effort in Jhe business district of PUlon,.

Black, all but bald and nearing 85, concluded last week the Constitution does not give high school boys the right to wear their hair long. More than that, Black said, lawyers should not be pressing the Supreme Court with “emergency motions\ claiming the nation will be in crisis unless long hair is allowed. Black set forth his views in ruling against Chesley Karr, a student at Coronado High School in El Paso, Tex. The boy wanted him to suspend the school’s rule against long hair while a suit against the rule moves through the courts. Black said he could not take the Karr boy’s plea seriously except on one point—“the idea that anyone should think the federal Con stitution imposes on the United States courts the burden of supervising the length of hair that public school students should wear.\ All the federal courts, including the Supreme Court, are heavily burdened with important cases, the kind they must be able to handle, if they are to perform their responsibility to society, the justice wrote.
