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.

Meehan, co-owner of the Deer Lodge Motel, died in­ stantly when the car he was driving collided with a grain truck operated by Raymond Lockett, 39, Lolo. The patrol said the Meehan vehicle apparently was changing lanes when it collided with the truck. The victim was the son of Powell County Justice of the Peace G.A. Meehan. Meehan was the seventh person to die in an automobile accident in Powell County for the month of November. The accident ran the state traffic fatality count to 288 for the year; on this date in 1972 it was 376.

Junior Miss Pageant Monday RETURN OF THE GRIZZLY—has been a topic o f conversation at the Beaverhead County Sheriff’s office recently. The huge rug, (valued at $1,500 by Tom Dooling of the Diamond Barr Inn at Jackson and owner of the beast) was found Sunday near Lima in a routine game check by the Montana Fish and Game. The pickup, driven by two Nevada 1... ,’ters, was stopped and they were found to be in possession of one untagged elk and two unmarked out-of-sL Montana elk licenses and one bear rug. The rug has been reported missing from the Diamond Bar earlier he hi iting season and officers were watching for it. The hunters, were returned to Lima to face game vioiui ion c, trges, costing them the meat in possession, their 1973 licenses and $500 in skin. The investigation is continue g in the case to determine what -verges to bring against the hunters, as cash as well as the bear skin. The investigation is continuing in the case to determine what charges to bring against the hunters, as they testified they bought the rug from an unidentified woman in a Dillon bar. (Sue Terrill Photo) Council Says Bills Are Misinterpreted HELENA (AP) — Montana’s Legislative Council said today it wants a showdown Jan. 8 with the Joint Committee on Legislative Administration to air a proposal that would eliminate the council. “ We’ll have a shootout at the O.K. Corral,” said Sen. Frank W. Hazelbaker, R-Dillon, a member of both the council and the joint committee. Earlier this week, the House and Senate panel which handles the day-to-day operating affairs of the legislature received a recom ­ mendation calling, in effect, for abolition of the Legislative Council. The proposal, submitted by Secretary of the Senate John Hanson, said the council’s func­ tions 1 should be transferred to legislative bodies more responsive to the heeds o f individual legislators. The eight-member council is the interim administrative policy arm of the legislature. Critics of the council claim the remaining 142 members o f the legislature have no voice in council decisions. The joint committee asked for a meeting within the first 10 days of the 1974 legislative session in an attempt to set out definite duties of the council. The council said it would like to meet on adjournment of the second legislative day, Jan. 8 . “ We should honor the request for the meeting,” said Speaker of the House Harold E. Gerke, D-Billings. “ The council is willing to hear from anybody, including them (the joint committee).” In other action, the council: —Deferred a requested study on the feasibility of creating a super­ agency to administer state human- resources programs. —Increased the price to be charged the public for copies of legislation. —Discussed whether the firm which prints Montana’s law books is tampering with the work of the legislature. The legislature’s interim Public Health, Welfare and Safety Committee, had asked the coun­ cil's staff to undertake a study on the feasibility of creating a Department o f Human Resources. The request sought a completed study before the 1974 session. The proposed new state department might combine or replace the present Departments of In­ stitutions, Social and Rehabilitation Services and Health. It also might involve the Department of Labor and the superintendent of public in­ struction’s office. Rep. Henry S. Cox, R-Billings, questioned whether the legislature should undertake a shakeup of state got ...... i it so soon after executi. : organization was completed. “ It is interesting we are reorganizing reorganization before reorganization had the chance to organize,” Cox said tongue-in-cheek. The council said that such an in- depth study should be approved by the entire legislature in the 1974 session. Gerke said that if the legislature is even considering a project of such vast scope, it would have to hire the most competent consultant in the nation and give him a year or more to do his study. Those who seek a copy of every bill, such as lobbyists, pay a flat $100 fee. Dillon Jaycee Junior Miss Pageant goes on the boards Monday night at 8 p.m. in the Beaverhead County High School auditorium, when eight young women will vie for the title of 1974 Dillon Junior Miss and the chance to try for Montana Junior Miss. The audience will be treated to a talent exhibition which will include vocal and piano solos, pan­ tomimes, dramatic and humorous readings and a song and dance act, as well as a group dance routine and free exercise coached by Robyn Walker. Larry Chaffin of Dillon will be the master of ceremonies for the evening and the winner will be crowned by the 1973 Junior Miss, Frances Strodtman o f Jackson and -n o w a student at Montana State University in Bozeman. Council Suspends Increases WASHINGTON (AP) - The Cost of Living Council today suspended temporarily proposed, new price increases on 1974 model automobiles. , The council said in a statement that it needs more time to review price proposals, which were considered at a public hearing last week. Council director John T. Dunlop indicated the council expected to have a decision on the increases by Dec. 10 at the latest. The increases could have gone into effect for American Motors today if the council had not acted to temporarily suspend them. Under the council’s Phase 4 anti­ inflation regulations, the automakers automatically could put their proposed increases into effect within 30 days unless the council acted to suspend, modify or reject them within that time. American Motors has proposed increasing prices an average $114 per model. Other proposed increases were: —Chrysler Corp., an average $136 per model, which could have been effective Saturday. —Ford, an average $188 per model, which also coiSd have been ^effective Saturday. —General Motors, an average $208 per model, which could have been effective Dec. 7. The council held hearings on the proposed increases because of concern over their potential im­ pact on the economy. It has estimated that over-all price increases of about 5.1 per cent would cost car buyers an additional $2.3 billion. The auto makers, which were granted one 1974 model year in­ crease in September, argued they needed the new price hike to reimburse them for increased production costs. Despite near-record profits for the 1973 model year, the auto makers say their over-all return on investment has been inadequate and their problems will be further aggravated by a possible 10-per cent decline in auto sales in the new model year. Co-chairmen of the 1974 pageant, Mrs. Sheila Peterson of the Jayceens and Wally Feldt of the Jayceer, said the contestants Patty Boetticher, Deborah Detton, Fern Hildreth, Christine Lively, Desiree Lundgren, Starla Morrison, Kathy Pettit and Marcia Swayze, will have a busy day Monday, to dimax two weeks of rehearsal and preparation for the Monday pageant. The girls will be guests of the Jaycees and Jayceens at a 1 p.m. luncheon Monday at the State Dining Room, where they will meet their judges, Mrs. Barbara Hun­ tley, Eileen Stephens, Chuck Stauffer, Leon Dillingham and Rev. James Dickinson. Following the luncheon, the girls, the judges and the chairmen will move to a private residence for the personal interviews which count for a large share of the points toward the Junior Miss title. Dress rehearsal has been set for Sunday evening when the con­ testants will get their final coaching from Mrs. Walker and Mrs. Annabelle Gaasch. The public is cordially invited to attend the pageant, with proceeds going tn scholarships. i t * it& j f s * . <;* *'1 . ?'<■£*>**■ i w w i f 1 ‘ 4 s/.-ff'ts\ ■:MM ■ BATTLE OF THE SEXES—WMC student body president Tom Tucker and coed libber Kathy (Mouse) Morrison renew the battle of the sexes here Tuesday night on the college handball court.

Three Held In Slayings O N L V [20 Shopping DAYS LEFTI Sears iPhone 683-4293 SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (AP) - Three brothers have been ap­ prehended and charged with murder in the shotgun slayings of four Sioux Falls teen-agers Nov. 17, authorities reported today. Charged with four counts of murder each were Alan E. Fryer, 29, David L. Fryer, 24, and James R. Fryer, 21, all from the Sioux Falls area. Ike Skinner o f the Iowa attorney general’s office said the arrests were made this morning at the brothers’ three houses in the area. He said they would be arraigned later today in Sioux Falls. The next legal step would be extradition proceedings to remove the men to Iowa, since the slayings occurred in Lyon County, Iowa, 10 miles southeast of Sioux Falls. Authorities would release no details of the investigation leading to the arrests. Nor would they discuss a possible motive for the killings. “ We have to assure these three a fair trial,” Skinner said. Officials said an unidentified 13- year-old girl who witnessed the shootings was still in protective custody. The murdered youths were Stewart Baade, 18; his brother, Dana, 14; Mike Hadrath, 15, and Roger Essem, 17. All were from Sioux Falls. Their bodies were found Nov. 18 in Gitchie Manitou Park in nor­ thwest Iowa. Santa Claus Comes Early WHITEHORSE, Y.T. (AP) - Santa Claus has arrived a month early for the hardy beer drinkers of the Yukon Territory — Canada’s most prodigious consumers of alcoholic beverages. Faced with a 20-cent increase in the retail price of a dozen bottles of beer, the territorial government decided this week it would hold the line on prices and absorb the in­ crease itself. Yukoners, who have the highest per capita rate of consumption of liquor, beer and wine in Canada, will continue to pay $4.10 a dozen for beer purchased in territorial liquor stores and $6 a dozen for beer purchased at licensed premises. Dillon Stores are open until 9 p.m. Friday FOR YOUR SHOPPING CONVENIENCE f f
