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.

Three championships in a row\ is the battle cry of Eastern's 1949 gridiron aggregation. The Yel- lowjackets, Montana Small Col- lege football kings in 1948, are shooting to retain that crown in 1949. Coach Oscar Bjorgum of Eastern is also eyeing the top spot in the Montana-Dakota conference that the Hornets lost to South Dakota School of Mines in 1948. This season will mark the third post-war year of gridiron play for the Bjorgummen. Although com- petition will be rougher and more experienced, the Yellowjackets eleven should have the power, speed and class to subdue the best of their opponents. Football practice began Septem- ber 12 for Easterner's hopefuls. After two weeks of conditioning and calesthenics, Coach Bjorgum began scrimmage in ear n e s t. Body-contact drills are the word of the day. With an expected fifty candidates, including seventeen lettermen turning out for the squad, Bjorgum is confident of an- other banner football year for Eastern. Wendell Ott and Jim Nicholson as co-captains of Eastern's eleven have the pleasant prospect of Texas the Eastern mentor feels that the 1949 football team will be the greatest in Yellowjacket his- tory.
