Team Captain Tiana O'Tremba took second in the individual competition. Coach Sharla Parks said the Lovell team competed in the high school jazz category and were scored by three judges. They performed their State routine, "Unstoppa- ble," and the dancers hit their marks, Parks said. O'Tremba was the only Lovell dancer to compete indi- vidually. "This is the first time we've done an outside competi- tion," Parks said. "It's nice to see how we compare to Mon- tana teams. I felt very good about our performance and I felt like we brought something different than the other teams to the competition."

Schmidt an- nounces in this issue that he has just installed the latest short wave diathermy unit in his offices. This machine is being used extensively in successful treatment of pneumonia, rheumatism and many other diffficult diseases. It generates pen- etrating heat by the use of radio short waves. 50 YEARS AGO MAY 18, 1961 The Lovell Chronicle Little Judy Sprouse found that a dollar bill can go a long way, not in the sense of buying power, but in travel. In November she wrote her name and ad- dress on one of those un- common dollar bills, which somehow work their way into this area. Judy re- ceived a letter from Wash- ington, D.C., dated May 8 stating that her dollar bill had taken a long trip, all the way east to the nation's capitol. It just goes to show you no matter what you try, it all ends up in Wash- ington in the long run. 25 YEARS AGO MAY 22, 1986 The Lovell Chronicle Though times are tough in the bentonite industry due to the slump in the price of oil, Lovell's Ameri- can Colloid bentonite oper- ation is branching out into specialty products that are keeping most employees at the plant working, if not as busy as they once were. Rand E. Tippetts, plant foreman, said there are currently 42 employees at the plant, two in the field, and four in exploration for a total of 48, down slight- ly from a total of 54 a year ago, and most of the differ- ence is due to attrition. i:!4;  !;4 i '*''; +;!i' ii: i i St. Joseph's  Catholic Church [ #.1 J/I Sacrifice of the Mass 1| Sunday at 11:30 am everene Glen Sz=ocho=ki l )1 Faith Southern Baptist ( Church  340 E. 3rd St., Lovell Pastor Michael McKnight 548-6561 Services: Sunday School 9:45 am Morn.
