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.

Her Majesty Miss Caryl Schrunk, Billings Homecoming Parade Soph's Win Best Float Award Eastern Court Waits Cross Country Winner Alumni Breakfast One of the main Homecoming activities of interest for the Alumni was the Alumni Break- fast, which was held last Satur- day morning at the Commercial Club. There were about thirty people present. A formal business meet- ing was held, presided over by Mr. Orton Sirrine of the Billings Junior High School. It was de- cided to postpone the election of officers until a time when a more representative group could be as- sembled. Dr. Peterson welcomed the group to the Eastern Home- coming of 1949. Of those present, it was decided Miss Marie Heiken, who is teach- in Glasgow, Mont., had traveled the farthest to attend the break- fast. Also, Miss Dewey, a former instructor in the speech depart- ment, was present. Senior Girl Honored Miss Caryl Schrunk, the choice of Easterners for Queen of Home- coming, held sway over her sub- jects Friday and Saturday during 1949 Homecoming events. Gowned in beautiful robes of royal blue and white trimmed with gold. Caryl was every inch a queen. Football co-captains, Jim Nich- olson and Wendy Ott, crowned Queen Caryl during the half-time intermission last Friday night, and received suitable saluations. The crown was made of golden mums and students of Eastern presented Her Royal Highness with a gorgeous spray of mums in fall colors. Each queen candidate received from Nicky or Wendy a lovely corsage. On Saturday morning, Queen Caryl and her Court met the win- ners of the Cross Country - Run on the steps of the college. The band gave out with Eastern songs while the annual parade crossed the bridge. On Saturday evening, Queen Caryl reigned over the Homecom- ing Ball. The decorating commit- tee outdid itself in carrying out the theme of Homecoming. The gym was beautiful in gold and blue. A beehive throne gave a colorful background to Stan Rich- ard's orchestra.

Chandler Cohagen, Architect Boettcher and Company fo Den- ver have purchased the $300,000 bond issue needed to construct a women's residence hall at Eastern Montana College of Education. The contract is to be let within sixty days. The building will be constructed of steel and concrete with brick and Indiana limestone trim. It will be L-shaped so that with an- other twin building to be con- structed in the future the two buildings will form a quadrangle. On the ground floor will be a kitchen, dining rooms, a small private dining room, a snack kit- chen, house laundry, boiler and transformer rooms. The first floor will contain a lounge, library, general offices, matron's quarters and living quarters for twenty- five students. The second floor will have a grooming center, liv- ing quarters for a housekeeper; the remaining space will be made into single and double rooms for girls. The third floor will be sim- ilar to the second floor. The plans call for small kitchens and laun- dries on each floor. Monday, the day the bonds were sold, indicated that there might be some delay in getting materials. Since then, however, the steel strike has ended. With the weather continuing fair con- struction should begin soon. The residence hall will cross the access road on the east of the campus. This road will be aband- oned eventually. Plans for a new road just north of the canal are being considered. NATIONAL POLL SHOWS FALL ENROLLMENTS DOWN As compared with a year ago, the College and University Bulle- tin states that enrollments of full-time students in most Ameri- can universities and colleges, ex- cepting teachers colleges, are down from 5 to 10 per cent, ac- cording to estimates reported by 471 approved institutions in all parts of the country to Dr. Ray- mond Walters, president of the University of Cincinnati. Report on the annual fall en- rollment study of the Office of Education which reports enroll- ment figures from substantially all the 1800 higher education in- stitutions in the United States will be released in November. NOTICE The closet in Room 101 has taken on the appearance of the famous hideout of Fibber Mc- Gee. Will students please call for overcoats, jackets, scarves, blouses, gloves, shoes, over- night cases, etc., etc., etc., which were deposited for safekeeping during the Homecoming rush. EASTERN MONTANA COLLEGE OF EDUCATION VOLUME 1 BILLINGS, MONTANA, NOVEMBER 11 , 1949 NUMBER 7 Eastern's Homecoming 9 Homecoming Review Well, the excitment of the an- nual Homecoming is all over. Ev- eryone seems to be a little worn out after the crowded schedule of events. I'm sure everyone will agree with me that it was put over in a big way. I think everyone should say \thanks\ to the General Chairman, Jean Aikens, and to her committees, and to to the Faculty Chairman, Mr. Kent, along with the other faculty mem- bers who gave the students such a swell helping hand. Things got under way Thursday morning with the special assem- bly including skits and the intro- duction of the Queen candidates. Thursday evening the big pep rally was held under the Rims. There was a large turnout. The team was introduced by Oscar and the yells and songs were held around the bonfire. On Friday evening at Daylis Stadium everyone was watching the \E\ burning on the Rims. Then came the kick-off and the game was under way. Our team played a terrific game and re- gardless of the score they really showed their ruggedness out on the field. Saturday morning the tradition- al parade, cross country run and ceremonies were held. All of the weekend's acti vi ties e off with the dance Saturday night. Honors are due to the decorating committee and to \Shorty\ for the intermission entertainment. Everyone was glad to see so many of the Alumni of Eastern back. We hope that they will at- tend many more of the future ac- tivities this year at Eastern. EASTERN TO GET THIRD FLAMING \E\ With two flaming E's already under their belts ,the students of EASTERN can look forward to seeing another next Friday night. Having run into mirror difficul- ties in the last two, this goal set by the \flamingairs\ (Jack Miller, Al Foster, Al Staley) is the con- struction of the perfect flaming \E.\ The time will be next Friday night at 7:30 on the rims north- east of the campus. Incidently, a clue as to who cut the ropes which supported \E\ number 1 may have been reveal- ed last Friday night. It seems that during the burning of the sec- ond \E a dark '38 Chevrolet Chevrolet sedan approached the scene with lights dimmed. The doors opened and two young men climbed out. Upon seeing one of our students sitting near by, the couple immediately went back to the car and sped away. Hmmmm? STUDENTS! I WE ACCEPT ADS. SELL YOUR EXTRAS THIS WAY NOTICE Miss Eevelyn Fox, who con- ducted dancing classes at East- ern during this quarter, has been called home unexpected- ly. There will be no dancing classes until further notice. Mrs. Brown
