Statement of Senator Mike Mansfield (D. Mont.)
..' .I .
Mr. President, it is always a sad occasion when a talented newsman
retires from his profession. However, in the case of Harold G. "Hal"
Stearns who has published the weekly l~rlowton Times for a good many
years, it is another milestone in an already spectacular career. Hal
Stearns has decided to give up his weekly newspaper but, at the same time,
is moving to the State Capitol of Montana, Helena, where ho will be
Executive Director of the Montana American Revolutionary Bicentennial Commission.
Montana is most fortunate to obtain his services.
Hal is not only a fine journalist but an excellent historian
who has spent a great deal of time studying and recording the history of
the West. He is active in the work of the Montana Historical Society and now
serves on the Committee for the Humanities, a new organization within the
State. Hal and Jeanne Stearns have been good friends for many years and,
while I will miss his editorials on matters of current interest, I do know
that he will contribute a great deal in his new post.
I wish Hal and Jeanne Stearns well and I know that Montana's
participation in the Bicentennial will be outstanding because of tiie
leadership. Mr. President, I ask that a news story appearing in the
Billings Gazette of June 15, 1973, and an editorial in the Great Falls
Tribune of June 20, 1973, be printed at the conclusion of my remarks.
