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.

Laird announced today there will be no military draft in January and possibly none until April. Laird said he would not project the draft for all of 1972 as the Pentagon presses for its goal of a volunteer army by March 1973. But his announcement indicated. the 1972 draft may go below the 76,000 men drafted in 1962, the lowest since the Korean War. “We’re in a position where we will not have any draft calls in Twin Bridges School Money TWIN BRIDGES-The High School here received initial re imbursement on the $75,000.00 Vocational Education Project Dec. 12. The re-imbursement covering five areas of instruction amounted to $16,853.22. On November 21-23, a visiting committee from the office of the state superintendent of Public Instruction visited the Twin Bridges Schools at the invitation of the trustees and the administration of the Twin Bridges School system. The committee members were Jim Burk, Chairman; Betty Lous Hoffman, Allen Anderson, Palmer Scott, Ed Eschler, Ted Clark, Bob Crebo, Lyle Eggum, and Robert Stockton. As a result of the committee’s visit, a thirty-four page written report has been forwarded to the school. Copies of the report are available at the school January,” Laird told newsmen at a yearend news conference, “and possibly not for the first quarter.” He said four factors will de termine the draft call for the remainder of the year. Primarily, he said, they will be the effect of a new $3-billion military pay raise and getting more volunteers and retaining them as well as men already in the armed services. Laird said two other factors involved are U.S. withdrawal from the Vietnam war and the congressional mandate that the Army be cut to 892,000 men by mid- 1972—which Laird called a cut of 70,000 man-years—would also contribute to the low draft calls for the year. He said all these factors will be analyzed through March to determine drafts for the rest of the year. Laird’s announcement bore out predictions by Selective Service officials that there would be no draft in January. 13,717 Make Trip Into East Berlin BERLIN (AP) - A total of 13,517 West Germans drove through the wall to East Berlin over' The Christmas weekend, police reported today.
