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.

BILLINGS, MONTANA JANUARY 11, 1950 College life \as usual\ was left behind for the second time in ten years as the faculty and students of Eastern began the winter quarter determined to do everything possible to aid in the increasingly- serious national emergency. President A. G. Peterson keynoted the new attitude at the college in an opening day assembly last Wednesday in which he stressed the seriousness of the nation's situation and asked his staff and students to give all possible to aid the war effort.

The committees for decorations, food, entertainment, publicity and queens were picked to start work soon. It was suggested that the committee look into the possibil- ity of holding the dance some- where besides the gym. The date for the dance has been set for February 23, as close to Valentine's day as possible. Stud- ents will again choose girls to reign in the royal court, with the queen picked by a well-known star of screen or radio.

Eastern Society To Present Films Something new in the field of entertainment is now available to Eastern students. You students who venture into the administra- tion building have no doubt seen the advertising material posted in the main corridor. This article is for our less fortunate com- panions who never seem to get any farther into the administra- tion building than the 'cafeteria. This new activity is called the Movie Society. During the winter and spring quarters this society will procure and show five movies. So far Dr. James Brown, originator of this new organiza- tion here at Eastern, has secured four of the five movies. On Jan- uary 25, \Duck Soup\ starring the Marx Bros. will be shown. Another somewhat shorter movie will also be shown this date. It is \The Barber Shop\ starring W. C. Fields. On February 22, Douglas Fairbanks, Sr., will be seen in \The Black Pirate.\ March 29 brings \Four Horsemen and The Apocalyspe\ with Rudolph Valentino. On April 26 a Ger- man movie will be shown called \M.\ It stars Peter Lorre. Inci- dentally, Dr. Brown stated that this is the movie which got Lorre his Hollywood contract. May 24 is an open date. Dr. Brown is en- deavoring to get a contemporary foreign picture. The pictures will be shown at four and eight p.m. Admission is by membership only! You have to belong to the society to get in. Membership cards may be pur- chased for $2.00 at the student activitty office or from Dr. James Brown. And Dr. Brown has said that support of this activity will mean getting even better moives in the future.

The speaker was Mrs. Robert Boehm, who is a citizen of New Zealand and who has taught in elementary schools in that coun- try for five years. She has been in the United States for the past 18 months and was visiting friends in Billings. She told the Eastern groups that prospective teachers in New Zealand are paid about twenty- five dolars a month while . they study for the profession. She said that this is necessary because the scholastic load is so heavy that they can not work at part-time jobs as many American students do. The South Pacific country is ahead of the United States in providing education for handi- capped children, Mrs. Boehm pointed out. There, every handi- capped child is sent to a special school so that he may benefit as much as possible from education. registration with the the last three weeks, Eastern Business Club Elects at Initial Meeting The first meeting this quarter of the Eastern Business club was held last week. New business was election of officers to suc- ceed those in office last quarter. Those elected were Gerry Swi- hart, Billings, president; Dick Knoche, Billings, vice president; Joan Pearsall, Park City, secre- tary; Lindy Eilefson, Billings, treasurer; Phil Huntley, Billings, reporter, and Fritz Klindt, Bil- lings, historian. Four new members, Berdie Askin of Ismay, Carl Good of Billings, Mary Flanagan of Ab- sarokee and Mr. Huntley, were present at the meeting. Student Directory If you're wondering how to break the ice with some of the new students who entered East- ern this winter quarter, the addi- tion to the student directory is- sued this week may help you— such as providing full name, ad- dress, telephone number, home town, class and previous school. The supplementary directory contains such information on the 47 students who were not enrolled at Eastern fall quarter. Twenty- two are coeds and 25 are men. Fourteen of the students are transfers from other colleges and universities, including four from Montana State College, three from Montana State University, two from Rocky Mountain College, and one each from Black Hills Teachers, St. Cloud Teachers, University of Minnesota, Oregon City J.C., and Northwest Naza- rene College. Eighteen of the group are re- turning to the hillside campus after having attended here pre- viously. Inquire at the registrar's office for copies of the new directory or for copies of the one issued fall quarter. Service News Eastern has contributed its share of boys to the service and if the war situation continues as it appears now, more will be leaving soon. This column is for news and names of students in the service. Copies of the EMCOE will be sent to them starting with this issue, and we will keep a file of all those addresses we know, so if you have an address or name we don't know or would like to write to any of them, the journalism room is the place to go. Some of those who have al- ready left are Russel Bender, Dave DeVries, Earl Hatfield and Bill Young, who left January 1.

Ski club officials are interested in knowing how many will attend the party and thus urge everyone to purchase tickets as soon as possible. Sullivan, general chairman of the festivities stated the local high school ski club and Silver Run club have been invited and he expects a large crowd to at- tend. Decorations are being tak- en care of by Jo Driscoll, Agnes Mosdal, Wilma Dowlin, Jack Is- rael and John Grimstead. Pub- licity and tickets are in the hands of Betty Zieler, Dorothy Frost and Doris Vladic. Ski club prexy Jerine Grim- stad extended a hearty invitation to all Eastern students to attend and help make the opening win- ter quarter social event a success. The Eastern Montana College faculty has voted to grant service credits to students leaving for the armed services during the present emergency. Procedures, compiled by Mr. L. J. Aikins, registrar, state that any student, after presenting proper proof of induction or enlistment, may be granted an adjustment of his or her following conditions. If withdrawal is before the student may be granted a \W\ in all registered courses or be granted unassigned credits ac- ceptable toward graduation. If withdrawal is after the third week of the quarter, but before the end of the sixth week, one-third of the total credit certified as passing will be granted. When withdraw- al is made after sixth week of the quarter, but before the be- ginning of the last three weeks of the quarter, one-half of the total credit will be given. If a fractional credit is less than one- half, it will be disregarded, and if it is more than one-half, it will be granted as one credit. Full credit will be granted if withdrawal is made during the last three weeks of the quarter. A \W\ will be given in all courses certified as not passing. Any senior who is inducted in- to the armed forces during his or her last quarter will be given suf- ficient and unassigned credits to meet graduation requirements if he reports to and satisfies the Guidance Committee of his in- duction, satisfies the Guidance Committee that he would have fulfilled his requirements for graduation had he been permitted to remain in school, and proves that he would have had, at the beginning of this last quarter, not more than a five point deficiency. If the induction is made during the last three weeks of the last quarter, the senior will be given full credit in all satisfactory courses. An applicant for a Teaching Certificate will be treat- ed as outlined above, dependent on the sanction of the State Sup- erintendent of Public Instruction to the method of procedure. Plans have also been made to obtain ROTC at Eastern. Montana senators and representatives have been contacted and favorable re- plies have been received, but no- thing definite has been deter- mined as yet.
