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.

SJOl’TEMUEK 6, 1923 U'HAT A l ’KTI’HE TO I’AINT Cnlted Slates Senator Brookhart from Iowa, in speaking at the annual (m on' of l he Tracies and Labor as a • ilily in Indianapolis, predicts fu sion of different blocs, such as the far,tiers', laborers',war veterans' and mothers , to remedy Inequalities of our economic system. Hr Hrookhart said these groups line reached the common consensus that their interests are identical and that they have been kept apart and at enmity by great combinations of wealth, which have thrived on prof­ its and ruled in politics by keeping thive groups of common people at each others’ throats. Civilisation has leached a turning point. It is the universal prediction that great changes are impending. \This unrest Is caused by the ine­ qualities of our economic system Those hioqualities have forced the different groups like the farm bloc, Jub'T bloc, sol Hers’ bloc and the mnih» rs' bloc to consider their own inti rests and each from its own standpoint.'' Have these so-called different groups heen' at each others’ throats or s not ihetr alleged hatred for one another and their colletcive hat rod of our economic system merely an overdrawn picture which foments clasj hatred and unrest? From this statement a stranger in a foreign country could picture different classes in America gunning for each other or joining hands to exterminate combinations of wealth and industry which, according to Senator Hrookhart’s accusation have ' thrived on profits and ruled in pel itifs by keping these groups of com mon people at each others' throats,' What a picture to paint of the United States! u - u n o» HaaiSald. - Oho, ajxd-Miu Lucy Arnold of Cleveland, Ohio, Th* entire party* with Uttle M in Doro­ thy Simmons, visited The New* com- poaug room Tuesday.

STATE UNIVERSITY The Kalinin, official publication of the State University at Mssoula, has the foll-owng: Who Is Mrs Sedman? When the freshman girl arrives at the Stale University in the fail she often has a very distorted idea of the Dean of Women. To her the dean is one who sits in judgment on her ev­ ery act and a summons to the dean’s office is oceasicm for fear and trem- hllsg.

We all saw by the reports (hat this county paid out over $7,000 for road work during the month of June It rained 25 days In June Many drew pay for approximately the full month and anyone traveling over ihe roads, or trying to, during June knows that it was impossible to do anything but kill time workng roads during a very large proportion of Ibis month. Mrs Hathaway is a tuxpaye in Beaver­ head county and must p y U->r share of the waste, yet she i, .1 uled the right to earn Heave tl money with which to pay for U - waste. Women of this county should, and 1 believe will, make a personal mat. ter of this small action and lay the blame where it belongs. I have per­ sonally heard many women express themselves very emphatically against the action taken When public offices are used for personal benefit and spile it is high time public opinion made such acts Vast System of National or interstate Highways Ther* wai * day. not very tax back, when vision In road building wa* about as broad as a tnan'a farm or * community's\ Interest Pork barrel methods and political poll, not yet a memory, were a big part of the ac­ cepted order. Then It became possible to see to the county limits and still later It gradually was revealed that' roads leading from one county to another might be a convenience to a reasonable number of travelers. Thus emerged the idea of state systems. It has remained for recent months, however, to bring into potential exist­ ence a vast system of national or in­ terstate roads that in a few years may reasonably be expected to lie, like long ribbons of white, across every section of the country and link up the states, the cities ifnd counties even more closely than they were joined in the construction of railway lines. Hie idea Isn't a dream, but a thing of na­ tional statute, provided for In the fed­ eral highway act of last November and now rapidly assuming form through co-operation of the state highway departments with the United States bureau of public roads. The system will comprise more than 175,000 miles, 7 per cent of the entire public road mileage of the United states. Of this amount three-sevenths will he composed of Interstate roads, ihe remainder to make up connecting Male systems. There Is state and fed­ eral money enough In hand or In sight to start the actual work, and nearly all the states now have submitted to ihe national bureau plans for the sec­ tions of road that will go Into the In­ terstate system. And the bureau Is seeing to It that the sections meet at the state lines. No federal aid will be i hoved on any highway which does a a fit Into the general scheme of a n>,tiiitml or state system. This is vision in road building, bounded only by the limits of the ooun- tM itself It will mean results in the slmpq of roads that link up and lead somewhere and bring service to all ia'her than a favored few. —Kansas *i ' i y Times.

ESCAPEA READER A reportera \ m e n te OOOkAOTtERl Colored Pins Indicate Danger Spots in Roads A rather original way of ascertaining tiie condition of roads and the places where repairs are necessary has been worked out by a road commissioner for state roads of Maryland. It is based upon the accidents occurring on the highways of the state. Upon receipt of each accident report, a numbered colored pin is put in the proper loca­ tion on a map of the road system of the state. Fatal accidents are marked with a red pin and other accidents are marked with yellow pins, the number­ ing on the pin referring to a card In­ dex system, enabling one to find the character of each accident. By keeping this record, it has been found that had stretches of road can be easily located because of the num­ ber of accidents occurring thereon. In many cases it was found that the road on that stretch was too narrow, or had a had approach to a bridge, and in many instances these stretches had never been listed as being in need of repair or change. The method outlined lias proved successful and has located many dangerous spots.—E. B.

People of this type are light In build, impressive, tasteful and are adapted for light work, construction, art, music, engraving, watch making, library work. They are generally lacking In vi­ tality (located In the hack of the neck) and their large heads, forever In ac­ tion, prematurely use their strength. They talk and think their lives away unless they train themselves to con­ serve their fore#.

This Is the outstanding thought in an article written by Dr. S. M. Johnson, former pastor of the Austin Presby­ terian church at Chicago and now di­ rector of the Lee Highway association. Deetor Johnson, In bis article, points out that the modern highway will do as much for a rural community as a railroad, school or church, serving as a meana to bring the people together and promoting the consolidated school, the union church and the civic center. These, he shows, result in more regular attendance at church and school and better-paid preachers and teacher* for the rural communities. times, the eyebrows are elevated, and the mouth is small, with a sloping chin, When the temples are large they have great constructive ability, and if they work with someone who haa practical motive power to aid them, often succeed In doing great things.
