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.

LOCAL GROUP PETITIONS NATIONNAL INTERCOLLEG- IATE KNIGHTS FOR CHARTER A group of sixteen sophomore EASTERN men has petitioned the national headquarters of The In- tercollegiate Knights for a charter into this organization. This group of sophomores met with a com- mon interest in EASTERN and a mutual feeling of the need for a service organization on the camp- us. Monroe DeJarnette, I.K. Expan- sion Vicroy, met with the inter- ested men October 29, 1949, to aid in the groundwork involved in this petition.
