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.
EASTERN'S MODERN SCIENCE BUILDING VOL. 1 EASTERN MONTANA COLLEGE OF EDUCATION BILLINGS, MONTANA, SEPTEMBER 28, 1949 NO. 1 Fall Quarter Opens - - Record Enrollment A DREAM COME TRUE The first step in Dr. Peterson's dream of an enlarged campus for EASTERN students is nearing fruition with the opening of the new Science Building. Students and faculty members making use of this new building will find ready for their use a pleasant, functional and modern science building. Congratulations to Dr. Peterson, the planners, designers and builders of EASTERN'S lat- est contribution to modern educa- tion in eastern Montana! The building is primarily de- signed for classes and laboratory work in science, but other classes will meet there as assigned. Dr. Hines, Dr. Cooper and Mr. Weich- ert will have their offices on the first floor and Mr. Lyle Cooper, Mr. Gloege and 0. W. Peterson on the second floor. A faculty lounge has been provided in room 103, a girls' lounge on the first floor, a boys' lounge on the second floor with a smoking section assigned in the east end on the second floor. The Art Department of EAST- ERN has departed from the tra- ditional school decorating colors. Throughout the building are found harmonious yellows, blues and greens in dynamic schemes which blend beautifully with the modern and colorful tiling of the floors. Dedication ceremonies are ten- tatively set for the last week in October when this beautiful build- ing will be opened for public in- spection. NOTICE! Big plans are in the making for a real demonstration of EASTERN'S talents at all home football games. All you gals familiar with that swinging stick sign up quick. It takes time to provide suitable uniforms for as many as we hope to have on the field leading our new band. Room 101 Adiministration Bldg. SWING IT— GOSH DING IT ! ! !

As the EMCOE goes to press, Mr. Aikins, registrar, seems assured that all existing records shall fall as to the number of students registered for any previous quarter. Pre-registration totals reached 310 before Monday morning sched- uling began. This sets a new rec- ord in pre-registration. More room and the addition of many new courses seem to be the contributing factors in this record enrollment. The new science building, the most modern in Montana, adds the needed space to accommodate the great influx of students to EASTERN'S campus. Mr. Johnson's new commercial department seems to have swayed many students to enroll at EAST- ERN. Seven new instructors have joined the many new students here as classes begin Tuesday. Money has been appropriated by the Board of Examiners for two new buildings on the EAST- ERN campus. Therefore this rec- ord enrollment shall probably be surpassed when the additional The previous top registration at EASTERN was 404 students in the fall quarter of 1947. ATTENTION Tryouts for cheerleaders will be held about October 10. All \Easterners\ who led our yells so successfully last season. are asked to sign up again. New students are urged to get in the tryouts. Who knows, YOU may be wearing the gold n' blue at Homecoming, Oct. 26.
