Will Install New Press in the Examiner Office
Some three months ago we decided to exchange our present type setting machine for a larger one and placed an order for one of the latest model machines made by the Morgenthaler company. However, after giving the matter more careful consideration, we decided that a new press on which to print the Examiner was more essential than a larger type setting machine. After considerable correspondence with the Morgenthaler company, we succeeded in getting the order for the machine cancelled, and last Monday we placed an order with the Western Newspaper Union for a new Lee press on which to print the Examiner.
The ordering of the new press means that we will have to “dig up” several hundred dollars when it arrives, and as dollars do not grow on trees, we will have to depend upon those who owe us on subscriptions or other accounts to “come across” with the coin. The best and easiest way that our readers can help us make the Examiner a better paper is for them to pay what they owe us. Give us the money that is due us and we will do our part towards giving you a better paper.

Montpelier Student on Harvard Dean’s List
More than 800 Harvard College freshmen have been named to the Dean’s List on the basis of their grades for the entire year of 1968-1969. In order to be placed on the Dean’s List at Harvard College, a student must maintain an average of “B” or better for the year.
Students whose names are on the list will be given greater responsibility and discretion in the matter of attending classes, as far as this does not interfere with the collective interests of the classes in which they belong.
Craig Ipsen, son of Mr. and Mrs. Don Ipsen of North 8th Street in Montpelier, was named on the list.
