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.

• The revelations before the House of Representatives sub- committee. investigating tele- vision quiz shows are sickening. It is appalling that a major network, the National Broadcast- ing Co., would foster such a fraud on the American people. The network with its crooked quiz shows has taken the at- titude that the American people are a bunch of kids. It's sickening to think that the quiz show producers have so little faith in the public that they feel they must dupe the viewer—and even worse, when confronted with charges of fraud, to stand up before television cameras and lie to us about it. You may recall that Jack Berry, quizmaster on the now defunct Twenty -One, told the American people shortly after the first charges of fixes were made, that there was nothing to the rumors, that no contestant had been told any answers in advance. After its degrading perform- ance on the quiz shows, the tele- vision industry deserves all the criticism being hurled at it. It has not treated the American viewer as an adult. Work fascinates some people. They can sit and look at it for hours. Babcock Serves On Kaimin Staff Jon Babcock, son of Mr. and Mrs. Stephen D.

Although Doc Rosdahl and his better half drove 700 miles (one way) last weekend for an ante- lope, nobody can say Doc didn't get any shootin'. He shot 15 times. \Speedy devils, aren't they,\ commented Doc. Frank Gummer says he's head- ing back up toward Cube Iron mountain opening day. He's going after that grizzly that gave him so much trouble a few weeks back. \I'm mad at him,\ says Frank. Of course, if he sees an elk in between time, he won't object. Good catches still are being re- ported by anglers in the Noxon Rapids lake. Some claim the trout being caught range up to 16 inches. Next year really ought to be something. Results this year, coming so closely after the rehabilitation program only a year ago, have been outstand- ing and beyond expectations. 0. J. Murray reports the boys at Trout Creek run an honest turkey shoot. He got a turkey in three trys on the fill -the -circle game—quite a contrast to the 10 to 15 chances he has taken in past years on Larson's skin game without winning a thing. He says he believe Larson's game is rigged just like the TV quiz shows. For three years he and the rest of the kitchen went turkey -less, but this year at the Thompson Falls shoot, Murray, Dick Davis and Dr. Richard Thiegs all collected. Wilbur Vaught is laying the latest claim to the title of \cham- pion spud grower.\ He's got three whoppers on display at Motors Garage. \I may not be able to raise the most potatoes in a single hill, but I can grow the biggest,\ claims Wilbur. 1 Established In 1906 L ..........___________.
