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.

The change of name was made official when Governor Bonner signed the bill changing the name of ti3school to EASTERN YONT/JA COLLEGE OF EDUCATION. The bill soonsored by Fred Kreig and Dr. Myron Tripp of Yellowstone County and by Beaverhead County legislata• climaxes a three-year campaign con- ducted by Dr. Peterson, President. THE CLOTHING DRIVE AND WHY! Due to the severe weather we have endured the past couple of months, many children of our community have been unable to attend school because they do not have sufficient clothing to keep them warm. It is really a shame that many children, right under our very noses, are being deprived of necessary schoolinr, because they are not properly clothed. The probl= is so immense that the Family Telfare or,7anization and the Salvation Army are unable to remedy the problem alone. It is because of this that the drives arc also being carried on throughout the various schools of Billings. Your donations will surely help some boy or girl to continue their proper schooling without interrup- tion. The receptacle for the clothing, as you may have or should have noticed, is located on the first floor, just a few steps from the telephone booth. The nice little piece of art work displayed on the blackboard is a con- tribution of :talcs Betty iiunowney. In 1946 when LASTERIC '1AS CHANGED to a four-year college with a Bachelor of Science in Education and a two- year Junior College, Dr. Peterson's attempt to change to EASTERN, drop- ng NORUAL al toga the r , met with the immediate approval of faculty and students.
