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.

Clifford A. Miller, Northern Region Engineer in Missoula, said that the special, five-man com mittee will develop criteria for closing certain Forest Service roads in the National Forests of the five-Stale Northern Region. The Northern Region includes 16 National Forests in Montana, North Dakota, eastern Wash ington, northern Idaho, and western South Dakota. “Many National Forests roads are constructed to facilitate a special need such as the harvest of timber.” Miller explained. “Often there is no need for some of the roads after the timber is har vested.” Miller said the committee is soliciting views and comments from the Washington, Idaho, and Montana Fish & Game Depart ment, State Forester, corporations and others with land holdings in and near National Forests, and interested organizations and in dividuals. When the criteria are developed interested parties will be provided opportunity to review the criteria and make comments and suggestions! “The committee has reviewed present road closure practices and has set some broad guidelines to be' considered lor use in developing region-wise criteria . for closing roads. Guidelines include con sideration of why roads should be closed, which ones should be closed and how the closure should be accomplished.” The special committee represents a cross section of resource management specialists.

Wheat Farmer Studied Some of Montana’s larger wheat farmers this summer will answer questions aimed at providing in formation on how size relates to the economics of their operations. Dr. Walter Heid, USDA Economic Research Service agricultural economist at Montana State University in Bozeman, will conduct the Montana project using a personal interview technique. The ERS study, conducted in cooperation with the Montana Agricultural Experiment Station, also will be conducted in Colorado, Kansas, North Dakota and South Dakota. Upon completion by September there will be joint publication of the findings.

Colburn Tells Boys Staters Huhiane Society' Main Goal House Republicans will go ahead with sales tax proposals. Anderson, in a message read to both the Democratic Senate and the Republican House repeated his three-month-old, suggestion that the sales tax be placed on the 1972 election ballots. “We’ve got to go forward with what we think is right,” said Lucas, adding: “The governor, by his comments, has really pointed a gun at the head of the legislature.” House Minority Leader Bill Christiansen, D-Hardin says Re publican efforts to send through a two per cent sales tax and a 10-12 per cent income tax boost will be rejected in the Senate. “Then if efforts to find inter mediate tax sources to provide $10- 12 million new money cannot be accepted, we will have to settle for a bare-bones budget,” said Christiansen. Christiansen said a University of Montana research economist, Dr. William Diehl, has been hired by the house to hunt for intermediate sources of new revenue. The so-called bare-bones budget presumably would provide $164.2 million after erasing the $4.7 million deficit with which the present fiscal year is ending. Hopes are that intermediate tax sources could fund an acceptable 1971-73 budget of about $182 million. Northern Region Headquarters, Division of Engineering, Planning & Multiple Use Coordination.

(Boys State Photo by Charles Stauffer) Boys State Counselor The man who has been counselor longer than any other individual at American Legion Boys State for Montana believes the program is one of the finest in the nation. Jim Glover of Butte, youth ac tivities director for the Montana Power Company, will start his 20th year this season as a counselor. He is involved in advising boys in the mythical governments set up at the city, county and state level. In the past he also has aided in press relations and athletics. He has high praise for the dedication of the directors whom he has served, especially Ted Hazelbaker of Dillon, who was a member of the first Boys State in 1947 and is now completing his 18th year as executive director, laid out by the first director, Eugene Savage of Poison, “got the Montana boys off to a good start. Without doubt, the program in our state is one of the finest in the nation. “The facilities, too, have been improved through the years, as Western Montana College (home of Boys State) has grown. The campus is beautiful. We have more dormitory space and improved Beaverhead 4-H Plans Carnival athletic facilities. “Boys State is a great ex perience for the participants. I’ve had many a youngster tell me that this program pointed him in the right direction. Friendships made during the sessions often last a lifetime.” After seeing some 6,000 high school juniors pass through the Montana Boys State program, Glover praised the American Legion, founder and sponsor of the school, for its forethought in establishing the citizenship training program. “I am glad to be associated with Boys State,” Gover said.

Election Highlights The creation and maintenance of a humane society is America’s prime educational goal, State Superintendent of Public In struction Dolores Colburg told Montana Boys Staters Monday. Terming herself dedicated to individualized education, Mrs. Colburg told the record 529 delegates, “ I consider it my duty to change, or at least disturb, the status quo and never to become complacent with our present system.” Tracing the duties of her office, the State Superintendent said her staff is seeking relevancy and quality through leadership and assistance programs. But, she warned, future education must become more humanistic. “There must be a greater flow of communication among all levels of education,” she noted. “I believe it most important that we get away from mass-producing our students, from turning them into the world from pre-cast, look-alike molds.” Touching briefly on students’ rights, Mrs. Colburg reminded Boys Slaters that teachers also have rights and are equally vital to the educational process, with both sharing responsibilities. Drug abuse, she said, is a serious issue among all high schools and is on the upswing. \Humanistic education, with its emphasis on the individual’s problems and talents, can help conquer this and other serious problems plaguing today’s youth culture,” she asserted. In closing, Mrs. Colburg urged Boys Staters \Ml to over-react to the failings of any system. Devote your efforts toward improving and reorganizing rather than destroying. “The trial that education is undergoing today,\ she concluded, “is nothing more than a race with the future and I invite you to enter that race while, at the same time, retaining the highest regard for individual human dignity.” H i g h l i g h t i n g M o n d a y ’ s citizenship and governmental sessions were legislative and law enforcement schools, capped by city elections. West Point Cadet James Griffin addressed the evening assembly, outlining his experiences in the military academy. Tuesday’s speakers include Dale Harris, executive director of the Montana Constitutional Con vention Commission; Herb Dietsche, state criminal in vestigator; Eugene Savage, a retired Anaconda Company public relations official who founded and directed the first Montana Boys Statein 1947; and Stuart Hall, state adjutant of the Montana American Legion, County elections are also scheduled Tuesday.
