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.

In this Kingswood, every window is Safety Plate Glass. Nicest wagon that ever joined your family! Chevy's station wagons should really be called family wagons. You can choose from five mod- els, including the four -door nine -passenger Kingswood, with its rear -facing rear seat. Here's a brisk and breezy wagon that'll take on any chore you name, from a trip to the beach to a journey home from the lumberyard. There's room, you see, for a whole half -ton of cargo—a space ten feet long, with the rear seat and tailgate down. These wagons are easy to load, too—you just roll the rear window into the tailgate and flip it down flat. No liftgate to wrestle with. Chevrolet's so easy to handle it's a natural for the lady of the house. Big, safer brakes, too. Chevy's even got bigger tires—they come as standard equipment on every one of our wagons. But why not fall in love with a Chevy firsthand—at your Chevrolet dealer's! The ear that's wanted for all its worth! For a \Spring Sales Spectacular\ deal see your local authorized Chevrolet dealer!

This spending, locally where practicable, paves the way for future growth of the State And it helps today's economy. Our 1958 Report to Stock- holders points out that com- pletion of Cochrane Hydro- electric Plant on the Mis- souri River was the big story of the year. We have nearly twice as much power avail- able today as at the end of World War II, 671,000 kilo- watts. We've added new power lines and substations, new gas lines and the supporting equipment necessary to serve a record number of customers. We're betting on Mon- tana's future and intend to be part of it.
