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.

A tentporary organization was formed by the election of a board of directors, consisting of L. A. deBelloy, E. P. Whitcomb, J. R. Emery, Wm. NIcDonahl and C. T. Ntartin. The board then organized and elected ofli- ..mrs as follows: L. A. deBeloy, pres- ident; A. R. McDermott, treasurer, and Paul A. Wisest, secretary. A subscription list was started for the purpose of raising funds to defray the expenses of exploretion work in the adjacent country. The list is open for a limited time, and everybody is invited to join in the ntovement. It is not a stock -selling scheme, but merely preliminary step in the ef- fort to determine whether or not the geological conditions hereabouts are favorable enough to justify a perma. tient organization anti further ex- penditure. At present we have nothing on which to base an oil boom, and there is no intention on the part of those interested to try to \stint something,\ unless there is a foundation for it. It is the foundation we are hunting for. No well-defined \denies\ or \anticlines\ have been making faces At anybody around here, so far as known. There are, however. a num- ber of our people who feel confident of success and are enthusiastic in pushing the effort to prove out the sessible oil resources of the country.

Otte of our teachers wants more salary. It all occcurreci this week when one of our teachers I called on the school board anti asked for an increase in salary, as she claint- ed some of the teachers were getting more money than she was. Ntore- over, she threatened to quit work un- less it W88 forthcoming. Now the scholars are out with a petition pray- ing the board to raise the salary of this instructor, as they claim she is entitled to it. But the secretary of the board, when seen by an Eagle epresentative, stated that the teach - ere were receiving the limit, and in order to do anything the taxes would have to be raised in order to pay an increase of salary. The levy fixed ey the board is taxed to its limit, and they don't see how they can 'else the price and come out whole at the end of the year. The out- come will be watched with interest.
