MONTANA REMEMBERS ITS JERKS

SHARE MONTANA REMEMBERS ITS JERKS

Montana has had its share of jerks over the years - enough, anyway, to devote a 1 1/2-hour seminar on the more famous among them.

Take Calamity Jane, for instance. Idol of frontier mythology, right?Not necessarily, say seminar organizers, who have titled Jane's segment "Calamity Jane - Sleaze of the Frontier."

The seminar Friday afternoon in Helena was part of two-day conference sponsored by the Montana Historial Society.

Others being discussed include W.A. Clark, one of the notorious "copper kings" who dominated and corrupted Montana politics near the turn of the century.
