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 Well Known Hardware Store. 1911 Prize. The state board of education con- vened in Helena last week and made !many beneficial changes in Montana !school laws, that will be recommended to the next legislature for enactment. says the Laurel (Montana) Outlook. The most important recommend- ation to be made will be an amend- ment regarding the changing of text hooks, fixing the date of such changes for January first instead of June first, thus preventing the confusion usually caused am the beginning of the school year. Another proposed change that will meet with the hearty approval of parents, by preventing unnecessary ex oense, is that not more than three text ! lhooks shall be changed during one year.1 A law designed to prevent the im- poverishment of one district by the creation of another, will be recom- Mended hy the board, tinder the present law regarding this subject, any territory having an assessed valuation of $10,000 and a population of 1,000. I may create a new district without con- sideration as to the condition in which such a division would leave the re- ' maining portion. - Pie board proposes la change in the law that will make in- justice less possible in such cases. The board will also recommend the centralization of school facilities in yer. rain territories within the state having a sufficiently dense population to make !advantageous the consolidation of sev- eral districts into one. • A new system governing the election :of .school trustees will be proposed, whereby the terms of a majority of the members of a school board will not expire at one time, which, if enacted. will always leave a majority of exper- ienced members on the board. A re- . construction of the present law regu- lating the election of a minority of the school boards in districts of the first and second classes will he brought to the attention of the legislature. In districts of the first and second class, the Jaw now requires that four out of seven, or three out of five must he re- tired and their places refilled. The board will recommend that in counties having 50 or more districts, the county superintendent of schools shall be allowed assistants to aid in the supervision of the school work. One of the most expedient of Om recommendations to be made lir the board will be a measure drawn for the equalization of county certificates with those of other states. This is a meth- od that has been adopted by siat, s recognized as tic( upying very advanced pos;tions in educational matters.
