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.

BULLDOGS WILL ENGAGE TEAMS IN WASHINGTON By Pete Glennie Western Montana College, with a 5-2 basketball record this season, will travel to Spokane, Wash., Fri­ day for a Saturday night engage­ ment against Whitworth College.

On Monday night the Bulldogs will tangle with Eastern Washing­ ton o f Cheney, another team on the Bobcat schedule. Last year West­ ern defeated Eastern Washington, in Kalispell, but the latest word from Washington is that the Sav­ ages will be stronger this year and will be frying to help Coach Reese gain his 500th win of his coaching career possibly during December. Western lived up to their pre­ season billing as conference fav­ orites as they disposed of College of Idaho in two games this past weekend, 79-62 and 72-63. Ken Jenkins, a sophomore guard from Belgrade, has been one o f the key reasons for the 5-2 record. Ken has averaged 23 points per game in his last three outings. Freshmen Mike McQuirk is improving with every game and has been a tower of strength on the boards, besides having a double figure scoring average for seven games.
