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.

S o m e b o d y G o o f e d I'm a copl It is 2 am in the morning- and I am walk ing along down a cold sncw-whitened street swinging my night stick in my hand. The dim street lights cast blurry shadows across the snow and turn; the tiny snowflakes into millions of shiny stars. As I turn a corner in the narrow street I happen to glance up to a roof top and I see some thing moving. I think to mypelf,who would be prowling around a roof top at a time like this? I go to the side of the building to where.there is a fire escape and I climb to the top. Sure enough, it is some bum burglar December IH-.1956 trying to make off with some loot, I say to myself----he's even , got a big bag of stuff on his back. He's all decked out in a red suit with fur pieces sewn around the edges. I see he is quite heavy set and has a snow white beard. I did't think such an old man as he was would have taken to burglary. Just as I am about to nab him he jumps into .some sort of sleigh led b^ rein-^ deer and zooms out of reach- Then I realize I have made a mistake and I stand on the roof top and watch the merry old man slowly glide out of sight.
