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.

Yellowjackets Leave for Rapid City EASTERN MONTANA COLLEGE OF EDUCATION VOL. BILLINGS, MONTANA, OCTOBER 12, 1949 NO. 3 Connelly and Bruce Rafn. A motion was made and sec- onded that the homecoming ac- KATOYA HAS FIRST MEETING The first meeting of the Katoya Players of Eastern was called Tuesday, October 4. There were nine of last year's members pres- ent and 21 new students who have hopes of becoming members. This meeting was a huge suc- cess in more than one way in that there were so many new mem- bers and a great amount of fun and entertainment. The first truly entertaining part of the evening came when Mr. Harshfield made those present draw from a hat for parts in a play. It was a comedy written about a wedding rehearsal. The students read and acted this out. The gen- eral confusion caused by the tight quarters of the Green Room suc- ceeded in adding more comedy to the already comical play. It is apparently a fact that there are many happy \neophytes\ among the new members. The Katoya Players have been successfully performing since the year 1927, only missing a few of the war years, and staging 22 an- nual Christmas programs. The Katoya Players wish to an- nounce that although they are very pleased with the turn-out this year they would like to have many more. It looks like loads of fun, students, so if you are inter- ested in acting, stage manage- ment, sewing of costumes, make- up, lighting, etc., just come to the Katoya Players. No student is barred from this activity. Katoya has convenient hours of meeting; the first and third Tuesday of each month. To top off a very entertaining evening the members of Katoya had a taffy pulling spree in the Student Union room. It was also announced that Katoya read a play for the American Lutheran Church. The three members who too part were Beverly Dirkes, Tom Morledge and Roger Glen. COMMUNITY CONCERT TICKETS ON SALE ROOM 101 $3.00. GET YOURS EARLY.

Eastern Tops Montana College Units EMCOE Registers Largest Gain Entering its twenty-second year, Eastern began with its usual ef- ficiency. The students, our future teachers and leaders, are adjust- ing easily to their new situations. Eastern's future may well be measured by this year's attend- ance. It ranks third according to student enrollment and first in percentage gain. Montana State University leads with 3,331 stud- ents but suffered a loss of 5% from last year's total, Montana State College is second with 2,606 which is also a los of 10% and Eastern with 451 students shows the highest percentage gain with 37% above last year's. Northern Montana College of Education with 385, a 16% gain, Montana School of Mines with a 7% loss, and Western College of Education with 270, a 22% gain follow re- spectively. Our president, Dr. Peterson, aspiring for a student body of 1,200 in the next few years, says he is very happy to see that East- ern has by far the largest per- centage gain, and that the rap- idity with which Eastern is grow- ing is very significant in the fu- ture of the college. BATON CORPS ORGANIZED Batons are again \flying\ in the halls of Eastern. The first meet- ing of the corps was Monday, October 3. From the looks of things there is going to be a good twirling squad this year—quantity as well as quality. The first time you will be able to see the twirlers exhibit their skill will be at the Homecoming game. If you are interested in joining the Baton Corps, contact Mr. Davidson.
