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.
IM1 Kathleen Baker EASTERN MONTANA COLLEGE OF EDUCATION VOLUME 1 BILLINGS, MONTANA, NOVEMBER 3, 1949 NUMBER 6 19 HORIEC01111 49 Girls'Residence Hall Bonds Issued Eastern of Tomorrow INTERCOLLEGIATE KNIGHTS CHAPTER TO BE CHARTERED AT EASTERN Monroe DeJarnette, Regional Expansion Viceroy of the Inter- collegiate Knights National Hon- orary Service Fraternity, met with interested Sophomore boys October 29 to plan a chapter of the I.K.'s on the Eastern campus. Mr. DeJarnette arrived in Bil- lings last Friday afternoon and attended the pep rally, football game and dance before he met with students Saturday morning. \Eastern has the sort of spirit that makes a school great,\ De- Jarnette said. His optimism con- cerning the National Expansion Committee's interest in establish- ing a chapter at Eastern makes the acceptance of a charter to this school a certainty. A student at Montana State University, where he is a junior majoring in music education, Mon- roe is one of the most active stud- ents on the Missoula campus. While the National Committee is considering the Eastern ?peti- tion for membership, plans are going ahead on our campus to organize this service fraternity so it will be ready to operate when the chapter is granted. Homecoming Activities Just a few of the things that will go on at Eastern this week. New students will welcome back the old. The Alums will have a breakfast at the Commercial Club Saturday morning at 8:30 followed by a business meeting and election of officers. Bob San- do is in charge of the meeting and Miss Stevenson, \Stevie\ to the Alums, has planned the break- fast. On Thursday the Assembly will be enhanced by the appear- ance of our Queen candidates in full regalia. There will be speech- es, skits, a pep rally and QUEENS! Sounds like fun! Friday, the pep gang will really put on a spread down town to bring a record crowd to the HOMECOMING GAME at eight o'clock at Daylis Stadium. \Iron- lunged\ Bill Churchill, Kare Evju and others will compete in the Cross-Country Run—the winner receiving the Queen's favor. Sat- urday night is the HOMECOM- ING DANCE. Stan Richards prom- ises dreamy tunes from 9 to 1. There will be refreshments and Queens, Queens, Queens!

WELCOME ALUMNI To the alumni of Eastern Mon- tana College of Education, we wish to extend our best wishes and greetings. We, the students of Eastern, take this opportunity to wecome the alumni back to the college. It is always a great pleas- ure to extend an open hand to the students of formers years, for it is these citizens today that do so much toward the advancement of Eastern. Through them a great part of the acknowledgement of our college has been attained in the past and will be achieved in the future. We sincerely hope that your entire approval will be bestowed upon Eastern at the present stage of its development towards a large future in the educational fields of Montana. It is through your present and fu- ture endeavors that we will be able to visualize Eastern as the leading college in Montana. THE STUDENT BODY It has been noted all through the state that Eastern is growing and will continue to grow. What follows is just brief resume of the growth of Eastern. Eastern now has 475 students as compared to 51 in 1945. This growth has increased the allot- ment of money to the school and has also made it possible to have our new Science Building. The new Science Building was finished and put into use this fall quarter. It was constructed at a cost of $325,000. Add to this the fact that $40,000 worth of equip- ment will be installed during Christmas vacation and Eastern has a very impressive edifice. But this isn't all, let us look inside. The building has nine labora- tories, four general classrooms, and auditorium. Some of the faculty members have their of- fices in the southwest corner of the building. Ch e mist r y and physics are taught on the second floor, while zoology, bacteriolgy and botany are taught on the first floor. In addition to all of these classrooms and offices we have a very fine wildlife museum. The floors are tiled with green and black tiling and the walls are inserted in many different places to hold exhibitions of aquarii and terria. The Conservation depart- ment is to fill these spaces with trout, etc.. this spring and sum- mer. What was new just a few weeks ago is now old and the students are looking forward to the new buildings which are to be con- structed on the campus. First in order is the Girls' Resi- dence Hall. It will cost $300,000. The bonds for this building are to be issued by a negotiative sale held this month by the State of Education. Construction should start in January or February. The building will have space for 150 girls. It is to be constructed on the southeast section of the campus. It will be a very modern building with single rooms and two-room suites. Included with the living quarters will be a small library, a student lounge, a groom- ing center and a \rumpus\ room. Mr. Cohagen of Billings is the architect. The $5,000,000 bond issue which we have all heard so much about is to be a College Elementary School and a Fine Arts bulding. The Student Union building should be started within the next two years. The old Elementary building will be used for the Spe- cial Education upon completion of the new Elementary building. Yes, we are growing and ex- panding! Come and grow with us! Let us make sure that the people of this great State realize that we have earned these im- provements, that we have great need for further expansion, and that we appreciate their efforts in our behalf. EMCOE NEWS! The faculty and staff of Eastern Montana College of Education ex- ceeded their quota for contribu- tions to the Community Chest Drive.
