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.

By BILL BEECHAM Associated Press Writer HELENA (A P )-The federal government, with an eye on the expected huge cost of maintaining . gas-serviced missiles at north- central Montana ABM sites, Monday joined a growing list of declared opposition to Montana Power Co.’s request for increased gas and electricity rates. “We study most of the requests by utilities and some we intervene in, some we don’t,” said Army Capt. Wolfgang Drescher, attorney, representing the secretary of defense and all federal executive agencies. “We’re opposing this request because we feel there are other areas for Montana Power to get money.” Drescher was one ol t\ta attorneys who fired questions at J.E. Corette, board chairman and chief executive officer,; Of Montana Power Co. The other was C, W. Leaphart, a Helena lawyer who has faced Corette in previous rate hearings. The controversial hearing began as scheduled Monday morning in the Senate chambers at the Capitol, despite a last minute at­ tempt in the federal courts to have it halted. U.S. Judge Russell Smith refused to intervene in the “essentially internal state matter\ saying he lacked jurisdiction. His action followed last week’s attempt in the Supreme Court to have the hearing stopped. On Sunday evening at the Capitol, some 200 mostly low- income persons demonstrated their opposition to rate increases for Montana Power. The Montana State' Low fecbme TSfihizatidn announced it would present to the commission a petition outlining their opposition. Corette told the commission that the basic reason for new rates on gas and electricity “is inflation and the enormous increases we are Additional 222 Voters Registered Beaverhead County voters indicated a growing interest in the coming election for delegates to the Constitutional Convention and on the sales tax question by registering 222 more voters by the closing of registration at 5 p.m. Friday evening.

During the same period, taxes other than income taxes will increase $1,905,000 or 23.8 per cent and corporation license taxes will increase $666,000 or 54 per cent. Because of our transition to thermal generation as the prin­ cipal source of power with greater use of fossil fuels, steam generation expense will increase $1,355,000 or 86 per certt.\ Corette also said that increases in wages and salaries, materials and supplies, depreciation and depletion add up to $2,679,500. “Our increases in expenses and taxes amount to practically 100 per cent of the increases in revenues we anticipate between 1969 and 1872 Continued on page 4 Western Gallery Major Cultural Center Of Area ‘highly diversified and encompassing all The Western Montana College Art Gallery, gaining acclaim as one of this area’s major cultural achievements, reopens next month with an outstanding array of exhibits scheduled during the 1971- 72 academic year.
