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.

Natural Gas»Hike Price Anticipated Smokey Say*: HELENA (AP) — George 0 Connor, president of the Mon­ tana Power Co., predicted Tuesday night that natural gas rates will rise sharply in the future as a result of policies pending in • Canada, a major source of the fuel consumed in Montana. He said all utility rates are going to increase in the case of natural gas, “I think they are going to go up dramatically.” O’Connor spoke before several hundred persons in the second of a series of public meetings planned by the firm to discuss energy- related matters. O’Connor said there is specu­ lation that Canada plans to force its export prices on natural gas upward to a rate where the price will be equal to that of other fuels in terms of energy. At current oil prices, he said, this would mean a cost at the Canadian border of about $1.25 per thousand cubic feet. He said Montana Power has budgeted $5 million to explore for natural gas in the state next year. O’Connor said his company has adequate supplies of natural gas and, barring a major breakdown of generating facilities, enough electrical resources to see the state through the winter. Joseph McElwain, executive vice president, said coal will play a major part of the company’s long- range ability to meet the state’s Preliminary Agreement Over Coal ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) — Texas Gas Transmission Corp., and Burlington Northern Inc., have reached a preliminary agreement for a major coal transportation venture that includes construction of a terminal to handle 25 millions tons of coal annually. Hie companies said Tuesday the project, expected to be operating in 1976, calls for Burlington to transport low-sulphuC coal unit on ains from Burlington trains the North Dakota, Montana arid Wyoming area to a termjinalj the ii on Mississippi River. ' * The Burlington tracks follow the Mississippi River much of the way from St. Paul to St. Louis and it would be possible for the terminal to be built anywhere between those two cities. One Burlington official said he believes the terminal will be in the St Louis area. A U.S. Interior Department report critical of one proposal fcoal termihaP fat tRig's Eye Lake in St. Paul could delay early issuance of a permit to construct it in St. Paul. The company said the terminal at full capacity would require 2,500 100-car units of coal a year. \It will mean quite a parade of unit trains,” one Burlington of­ ficial said, “and will be a sig­ nificant addition to the company’s business.” The official said the coal would be transferred to river barges owned by Texas Gas and moved to major electric utilities in the South and East that have plants ac­ cessible to waterways. needs for hoth electricity and natural gas. The firm has vast, holdings of strippable coal reserves in eastern Montana and is constructing two 350-megawatt generating plants near Colstrip. In • addition, the firm is part of a combine of Pacific Northwest ■ Utilities planning construction of two 700-megawatt generating plants in the Colstrip area. McElwain said the company’s short-range supply of natural gas is tied closely to Canada, while th e ' future supply will come from coal, depending on the development of coal-gasification technology. “We do not anticipate any shortage of gas on our system this winter,” he said. ’ Much of O’Connor’s presentation dealt with what he said was a need for the firm to remain financially strong. He said the company estimates it will have to invest $385 million during the next five years for construction and resource de­ velopment. The company, he said, must maintain its financial in­ tegrity to borrow the money. He said any loss of financial standing would be reflected in higher in: terest costs on borrowed money and that this in turn would be reflected in higher utility rates. In answer to a question from Robert McTaggart, a member of the Montana Public Service Commission, O’Connor ac­ knowledged that energy-con­ servation efforts could possibly result in increased utility rates. He said some utilities are finding that reduced earnings caused by lower power consumption result in a need for higher rates, since the expenses of utilities do not decrease as consumption decreases. Bus Crash Kills 15 SAN NICOLAS, Mexico (AP) - A bus overloaded with religious pilgrims hurtled 141 feet down a mountain ravine, killing 15 persons and injuring 43 others. A Red Cross spokesman said many of the survivors reported that the bus driver was drunk. The driver and an infant girl were among those killed. The in­ jured included 25 youngsters, of­ ficials said. Ten of the pilgrims were missing after the Tuesday night accident. Red Cross spokesman Jose Angel Guerrero said, “Many of the survivors said the driver was drunk.” . Aguatin.Montes de Oca, one of the passengers, told the Red Cross, “The driver was drunk ... we told him not to drive but he took over anyway. He tried to pass a truck and that’s all I can remember.” He said the driver got drunk Tuesday night at religious cele­ brations in Chalma, about 50 miles southwest of Mexico City, and then wanted to drive back to the capital. The pilgrims kept the driver away from the wheel so one of them could drive, but he soon became hostile and seized the wheel, Montes de Oca said. Guerrero said the bus had room for 41 passengers but was carrying more than 70. MIDI MART BIG SKY MIXES EPSI COLA BUBBLE UP 28 oz.

(AP) - A Lu- dington, Mich., youth sent the Tampa Chamber of Commerce $5 to settle a stolen grapefruit debt. . “I was there visiting with five other boys,” the youth said in a letter enclosed with a check from his parents. “We were low on funds to get back home and we took some grapefruit from an orchard there in Florida.” The boy guessed that perhaps two or three dozen grapefruits had been pilfered. Without mentioning exactly where or when the raid took place, he asked, “Please forgive me of this wrong as I am sending some money to pay for the grapefruit.” The chamber is giving the money to a Christmas toy charity drive.

W a ll Street NEW YORK (AP) - The stock market mounted a sharp but short­ lived rally today in an attempt to bounce back from its severe recent losses. The Dow Jones average of 30 industrials bounced ahead 15 points in the first half hour of trading, then fell back by 11:30 a.m. to 845.42, up only 0.52 for the day. Analysts said the brief buying surge apparently stemmed from bargain-bunting by investors at­ tracted by depressed prices of many issues. Brokers said investor concern about the;, economic im­ plications of enirgy shortages seemed to reassert itself rapidly.
