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.

HEDLEY HEPWORTH HEDLEY HEPWORTH FEATURES ASSEMBLY PROGRAM English Star Nationally Known Mr. Hedley Hepworth, in- ternationally known inter- preter of Charles Dickens, was featured in last Wed- nesday's assembly. During the war Mr. Hepworth em- ployed his gift for imper- sonation aiding the British Secret Service. On this his seventh trans- continental tour, he is pre- senting a program from his inexhaustible store of char- acters based on the works of Charles Dickens. His ability in make-up and costume change has ranked him as one of Britian's foremost in- terpreter's of Dickens. Mr. Hepworth has filled engagements in practically every state in the United States and all of the Cana- dian provinces. His services are in great demand in ra- dio and television. His appearance as a guest star on many top-notch shows has made him a na- tionally known figure. Both students and faculty members have been looking forward with anticipation to the competion of the new science building on the campus of Eastern. This building is to house the de- partments of biology, zo- ology, botany, chemistry, physics and geology, which have been operating temp- orarily in the administration building, pending comple- tion of the new structure. Plans for this new and modern structure began shortly after the coming of Dr. A. G. Peterson to East- ern. He consulted with faculty members and imme- diately considered the plans for the new buildings. Pro- fessor William Hoheisal has been in on the plans from the start and has contributed a great deal. Under the post- war building plans for the State of Montana, a consult- ing architect, together with the faculty members, work- ed out the preliminary plans. Working with Pro- fessor Hoheisal and Dr. Pet- erson have been Oliver W. Peterson, G. H. Gloege, Keith Manion and Richard Meens. Funds were alloca- ted through the post-war building fund and by direct appropriation of the 1947 Legislative Assembly. Chandler C. Cohagen of Billings, Montana, was se- lected as the architect. Con- tract for the building was awarded to the Boespflug Construction Co. of Billings. (Continued on Page 3)
