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.

The automakers, having just enjoyed a year of record sales and soaring profits, are finding little demand in this time of an energy crisis for larger cars which use more gas. Production of small cars such as Ford’s Pinto and General Motor’s Chevrolet Vega is being pushed to the hilt, and a number of plants are being converted from making large cars to the smaller models. continued on page 6 ONLY [15 Shopping DAYS LEFT] Sears \ Option* 683-4293 St. James Guild meets Thursday St. Jam es Guild will meet Thursday afternoon at the St. James Guild Hall beginning at 2 p.m. with Jo Slanger as hostess.

Watergate vote impact doesn't worry Shoup Can a Republican congressman, basically loyal to the Nixon Ad­ ministration and from a historically Democratic district, survive in 1974? More specifically: Will Watergate send Dick Shoup back to Missoula? Shoup, Montana’s two-term Republican congressman, an­ swered those questions this week, predictably: he says he’ll survive the crisis in his party. The former Missoula mayor, who has defeated former congressman Arnold Olson twice for the second district seat, con­ ceded in an interview here that “I’ll lose some votes” because of W atergate’s link to the Republicans. \There’ll always be some people who will vote against me by association (with the party),” Shoup said. But he said that \those people will vote against me with or without Watergate.” He said that even in a historically Democratic district such as the second he did not think an anti-Administration vote would turn the election around. He said he felt the independent vote was stronger in the district than is sometimes believed — perhaps about 30 per cent of the electorate. He indicated that was the vote he feels will swing the election in his direction. Shoup defeated Democratic incumbent Olson by 1300 votes in Cold Nuggets square dance on Saturday uuest caller Jerry Hamilton of Columbus, Mont., will be featured at a square dance Saturday evening at 8 in the St. James Guild Hall. It will be a regular Gold Nuggets club dance, however all square dancers in the area are welcome and urged to attend, says dub president Dan Scott. Hamilton has been a caller 15 years, beginning in Denver and moving to Columbus five years ago. He calls regularly for five clubs there, and has just made a new recording, \Open Up Your Heart.” He wifi be remembered by local dancers, for he was amor.„ the callers at the Gold Nuggets festival last May. The Gold Nuggets guest caller schedule will continue Jan. 12 with 1970, and increased his margin to 12,000 in winning a second term. He was the first Republican to win the seat in 30 years, but the margin of Democratic victories has frequently been very thin. Die congressman said he felt it was “too early” to speculate on who his opponent might be, but that Olson was likely to run again and would probably be the strongest opponent. He termed Olson a “very aggressive campaigner” and said he was certain be would attempt to use the Watergate issue to his advantage. Shoup said that in recent swings through the state, however, “even the people who don’t support me, and are critical of Watergate and the Administration, don’t seem to relate that to me. But then of course you’re going to lose some votes just by being the in­ cumbent.” Die congressman said he did not like to put too much emphasis on campaigns as such, and that “the best way to run” is to “remain visible at all times. I don’t like the kind of campaigning where you go in at the last minute with a big bang. I want to do my job every day and rise or fall with that.” Shoup, like most junior congressmen without safe seats, is known as an active and press­ conscious legislator who is con­ tinually campaigning for re- election. NEW FRONT—for the Mountain Bell building in Dillon. Die Dillon telephone business office has been located on Bannack street since early summer, when an explosion made the office uninhabitable. The accident took place during excavation for an addition to the building. Although the cement block walls were badly damaged, the equipment was not affected and telephone service continued as usual. Walt Albertson, Dillon manager of the Mountain Bell office, said the em­ ployes in the business department would be back at their old quarters Monday morning. (Sue Terrill Photo) Yellowstone delays opening to help ease fuel shortage Norma Dudney of Hamilton. The club’s regular caller, Tom Mellott of Butte, will call the Christmas party dance Dec. 22. YELLOWSTONE NATIONAL PARK, Wyo. (AP)—Roads through Yellowstone National Park will be opened June 1, 1974 rather than May 1 because of the fuel shortage, Jack Anderson, superintendent, said Thursday. The delay in opening dates will save an estimated 16,000-18,000 gallons of diesel fuel, Anderson said. He said the delayed opening will not necessarily mean a drop in tourism for the park although between 60,000-80,000 normally visit the park during the first month after it is opened. “We just think people will change (heir schedule,” Anderson said, “Those that are going to visit the park will come later.” Snowplowing, which usually gets under way in the park around Feb. 18, will be delayed until sometime in April, Anderson said, although those plans could change. “Employment won’t be changed at all. It’s just a matter of changing priorities in what they’re doing,” Anderson said. He said the latest moves are part of a continuing program of fuel conservation at the park. “We’re condensing the operation to make every saving we can on fuel. Gas rationing and some other things could have other effects on us. Right now we’re looking principally at the heavy fuels,” Anderson said. “We recognize that there will be some pinches in a few places, but you still have a program that we have to go with,\ he said. Gas heater blamed for garage fire Die Montana Fire Marshal’s office sent Deputy State Fire Marshal Gary Yonker to Dillon Tuesday to investigate the ex­ tensive fire at the Everett and Mike Johnson garage on Highway 41 North which happened in the early hours of Sunday morning. Yonker, following an all day investigation, definitely ruled out the possibility of arson in the case, giving a malfunction of a natural gas space heater suspended from the rear of the building as the cause. Die Beaverhead County Sheriff’s office and the Dillon City Police assisted in the investigation.

This year we’ve all been affected by spiraling costs caused by shortages in the beef and energy industries. Labor and materials costs have forced up the prices of new cars, homes, and almost every other consumer product. Now it’s our turn. Monday we announced that subscription rates for the Tribune- Examiner would have to be raised next month, and although many have stopped by the T-E office to renew at the old rate, there have also been the expected protests. Die fact is that our subscription rates have not increased for over two years, during which time the cost of newsprint has increased three times. Yesterday another telegram from our supplier announced a new price boost in January. And any businessman will tell you what has happened to the cost of postage and labor in recent years. Despite all this, the newspaper is still a remarkable bargain. What else can be delivered to your door every day for just 7Mi cents? (Five cents under the old rate.) Not even a postcard! Die Tribune-Examiner isn’t “the same old paper,” either. We’re making every effort to increase local news coverage, improve readability, make it more attractive, and better serve the needs of our community. ( Sure, the price boost will pinch. But it’s still a remarkable bargain. Now’s the time to renew your subscription at the old rates PfSisc Dillon Stores ore open until 9 p.m. Friday \FOR YOUR SHOPPING CONVENIENCE v r
