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.

Back in the good old days of the Model T, as one can tell by reprints of old catalogs, tires cost around $18 apiece, and one had inner tubes. patch- ing compound, pumps and extras to buy. Those skinny old T tires on the rim, cost about as much as lower priced tires today, and the seller would have laughed at you if you said \guarantee.' On a trip everyone hoped, but expected to have to dismount, patch and replace and pump up, knew his hope was just that --and did have to patch, repair and pump. Mileage was figured in hundreds per tire, then. Consider the mileage, the amount of rubber, the smoother ride, and con- vince yourself that these days a tire is a bargain. Big, air conditioned pillows cost about the same in dollars --and look at the difference in what those dollars would buy in other things, then and now. We favor Goodyears, of course, the brand we sell; and over the years the Goodyear name has carried on --now more people ride on Goodyears than any other brand. Quality, service, reliability. Be sure to get our prices on the world's favorite tire before you buy D -K Distributors I r1/1111% ear -EXXON -Michelin !kaki-. Phone 622-3371 Fort Benton ••••••. •••••!...

First Tourney Game 6 Tonight After an early 4-4 tie, the Bison ran away to a 39-18 halftime lead here last Friday night. With most of the visitor's regulars on the bench starting the second half, Leslie Appleby scored seven straight points to cut the lead to 39-25. The Bison starters reported in at this point and dominated play for the remainder of the game to win 67-34. This was the last regular season game for the Longhorns and for three seniors on the squad, Mary Streit, Leslie Appleby, and Jackie Shaw.

Conrad has defeated Benton 3 times this season with two of the games being decided in the last few seconds of the ball game This fourth game looks like a toss-up with anything likely to happen at a tournament.

Longhorn Boys Squads Named This year's basketball season started November 1 with try outs and now both squads are working hard on fundamentals and are preparing for the season opener during Thanks- giving vacation against Deer Lodge.

Seniors Dick Clark, Bill Lepley and Dan Stovall are all returning letter men and transfer Ray Ewen brings the number of seniors to four The rest of the varsity squad is comprised of junior Brice Russell, sophomores Wes Brodock.

Other girls who gained points for the local team at state were Lyanne Taylor. Betty Madsen, and Toni Frieling.

Glendive is the defending champions with Miles City being the runner-up team in last year's state meet.
