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.

During last Fall Quarter, 274 grants and scholarships were awarded at Eastern Montana Col- lege. YOU'LL GO You'll go, but you have left a sign. A symbol of pride and pain. You'll go, to meet the Master's Design, But your mark will still remain. You've tried, and you have brought us fame. You've labored with might and main. You've tried, and added to Eastern's flame, And your mark will still remain. —Dr. Harold S. Alterowitz Director of Athletics Spring, 1964—THE RETORT, Eastern Highlights—Page 3
