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.

Tribune-Examiner memberof THE ASSOCIATED PRE88 Bylin* of Dependability for 12B years Son of novelist washed overboard1 SAN FRANCISCO (AP) - The son of novelist Ernest K. Gann and the captain of an oil tanker were washed overboard and are presumed dead, the Coast Guard said. A Coast Guard spokesman said First Mate George K. Gann, 38, of Belvedere, Calif., and the skipper o f the Chevron Mississippi, C.W. Pemberton, 50, of Seattle, were lost in heavy seas Thursday. The Coast Guard said the ship steamed into a storm 390 miles southeast of Homer, Alaska, while carrying oil from Cook Inlet, Alaska, to El Segundo, Calif. The spokesman said a third man, seaman Mario L. Ro- mersa, 51, of San Francisco, died aboard the 70,000-ton tank­ er of injuries suffered in an ac­ cident while the ship plowed through 18-foot seas, battered by 40-knot winds.

(Sue Terrill Photo) Ration coupons like dollar bills WASHINGTON (AP) - It looks like a shrunken dollar bill but it could become more valu­ able than the real thing if the government rations gasoline. The ration coupons, being readied for that doleful day, bear the picture of George Washington and the inscription: One unit o f gasoline. There is a place for your state, your li­ cense plate number and your name. If you are age 18 or over and a licensed driver you’ll get a month’s supply of coupons for $1. You can sell the coupons for whatever you can get if you don’t need them. You can buy them at the going rate if you need more. That, in essence, is how it will work.* ‘ ' V A coupon might be worth five gallons one month, six gallons the next. Energy Chief William E. Simon estimates that the monthly average per driver will be 32-35 gallons. But how many coupons you will get for your initial dollar will vary, depending on whether you live in a densely populated area or not, on how much mass transportation is available and other factors. Come March l, the earliest the program could be put in ef­ fect, this is what might happen: Y o u ’d receive an author­ ization card in the mail, pre­ pared by your state's driver’s license computer In the two-week period before rationing starts, you take the card to a bank or post office — that decision hasn’t been made — for one month’s supply of coupons. It will cost $1, to de­ fray the $1.4 billion annual bill for the rationing machinery The coupons will be printed in a different, color each month, butarespendable over a 6(>-day period. There will be announce­ ments of how many gallons you can buy with them, and changes could be made month by month. Your service station will col­ lect the right number of coupons and turn them in to a bank to account for the number of gallons he’s sold. Howard Hughes indicted LAS VEGAS, Nev. (AP) - Howard Hughes, the much- traveled and much-hidden billionaire, is under federal in­ dictment for stock manipulation in his' 1970 purchase of a West­ ern regional airline. Spokesmen for Hughes, who now is believed sequestered in a hotel in the Bahamas, said to­ day they would have no com­ ment on the indictment until they receive copies of it later today. Richard Hannah, who is. based in Los Angeles, declined to say whether he had been in contact with the 68-year-old NOTICE Frank’s Sport Shop Twin Bridges Open For Business Under New Management Remodeling and Expanding 1974 will offer complete line of Sporting goods Specialties To Include Guide Service Rod and Reel Repair Custom Made Rods and Flies Drop in and meet Bob and Sharon Palmer 1 : v Four Rivers Sport Shop 205 So Main Twin-Bridges Montana 684-5651 Hughes, who faces criminal charges for the first time in his much-publicized life. A former top Hughes’ aide and three others were named in the nine-count indictment re­ turned Thursday by a federal grand jury. In it, Hughes and three of his codefendants are accused of conspiring to pressure directors of Air West Airlines to sell out to Hughes by depressing the value of the airline’s stock and then threatening lawsuits against the directors. The indictment came one week after Hughes secretly left London. He reportedly flew imme­ diately to the Bahamas, and took up residence on the top two floors of a hotel owned by another publicity-shy billion­ aire. His arrival in the Bahamas, if it occurred, came only weeks after fugitive financier Robert L. Vesco was successful there in avoiding extradition proceed­ ings to the United States to face criminal charges. Hughes’ spokesmen imme­ diately denied last week that their boss was seeking to avoid prosecution and said specula­ tion about any upcoming in­ dictment against him was false and politically motivated. Legal maneuvering in the case was expected to begin quickly, as the U.S. attorney in Las Vegas said he wanted ar­ raignment o f the defendants in two weeks. That would presum­ ably mean a trip to Las Vegas and public exposure for Hughes. Named with Hughes in seven counts of the indictment were Robert Maheu, former head of Hughes’ Nevada operations; Chester Davis, general counsel for Hughes Summa Corp. and a member of its board of direc­ tors; and David B. Charnay, a former Air West stockholder. James H. Nall, a Hughes em­ ploye and former Air West stockholder, was named In three counts. Listed as unln- dieted conspirators were H. M. \Hank” Greenspuri, publisher of the Las Vegas Sun, and George Crockett, a New York but irtcMman. 1
