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.

This year the rodeo will be known as the \Jaycee Rodeo\ and we feel that our organization’s role in this important community event should be fully explained. The Dillon Rodeo has for the past several years been sponsored and produced by an organization known as The Dillon Rodeo As sociation. This group was a corpor ation made up of many of Dillon’s businessmen, who felt, as we do, that an annual rodeo was a defin ite asset to our community not on ly from an economic point of view, bult from the entertainment aspect, and as an annual symbol of our Western culture. These1 men also realized' that in the rodeo there lay the possibility of unlimited fin ancial resources for an organiza tion dedicated to community ser vice. With these thoughts in mind, representatives of the Rodeo As sociation approaoched the Dillon Jaycees and offered to our organ ization the sponsorship of the ro deo, in exchange for our pledge that it would be conducted as a project for the benefit of the com munity. This was early last spring. A fter a series of meetings be tween representatives of the two organizations, and the Beaverhead County Fair Board, a contract vas entered into whereby the Jaycees would assume exclusive control and full responsibility for the pro duction of the 1957 rodeo. The Jay cees in turn signed a contract with the Fair Board to produce the ro deo in connection with the County Fair. Following the signing of the con tracts, the Jaycees immediately formulated plai^ for, what w a b o p e will be a rodeo worthy of the fine tradition of past Dillon shows. We established a permanent rodeo committee- which has been func tioning since last spring. An ex tensive program of renovating and repairing the rodeo facilities at the Fair Grounds was instituted. All this was done with Jaycee labor, and is now nearing completion. A contract was signed with the Zum- wal't Rodeo Company to assure Dillon of a quality show. In line with the Jaycee program of com munity service, concessions and re lated profit making activities, have insofar as possible been awarded to other civic organizations, includ ing the American Legion, Rainbow Girls, Soroptomists, Ski Club and the Jayceens. W e expect to put into effect a plan to bring the rodeo within the price range of every Beaverhead County family. This plan, will be in the form of a \Family Day” , whereby an entire family will be able to attend ait least one day of the rodeo at a conservative price, One of our objectives Is a plan to alleviate the necessity of each year having to ask our business men to underwrite the rodeo. Should this year’s show be the financial success hoped for, we in tend to establish a permanent rodeo operating fund, and thus re lieve our businessmen of haying to make their annual subscription. A t to the profits from the rodeo, we pledge their exclusive use to Jaycee programs for the benefit \ of Dillon and Beaverhead County. Sincerely, Ed. Atkins Frank Davis Ted Hazelbaker Leon Miller, Jr. Charles Seifert Allen Walton Jaycee Rodeo Committee NOTICE MS HEAD AFTER BAIL IS HIT THCE SUFFORT FOR LOWER 6RADE BARLEY With unfavorable weather condi tions resulting in increased pro duction of lower-grade barley this year, the U.
