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.
IMI C I VOL. 4, NO. 11 BILLINGS, MONTANA JANUARY 25, 1951 EASTERN INTERCOLLEGIATE KNIGHTS PLEDGE FOUR SOPHOMORE MEN Four sophomore pledges were introduced to the Intercollegiate Knights at their regular meeting Tuesday. These pledges will be called pages during their initiation period and were selected to fill depleted ranks vacant because of transfers to other schools and enlistments or inductions to the armed services. The pages were told to note carefully the goal of the I.K.s which is to promote service, sacrifice and loyalty to one's college. These pledges are Les Heins, Marvin Crook, Phil Huntley and Don Vladic. At present the club has the following members: Earl Halver- son, duke; Tom Keating, scribe; Bub Gilbert, chancellor of ex- chequor; Pat Harrington, expan- sion officer; Rueben Schlaht; ad- viser; John Kaltenbach, junior ad- viser; Bill Acheson, junior ad- viser; Tom Blankenship, Tom Morledge, Bob Wakenshaw and Jerry Sullivan. The I.K.s are planning to attend the national convention at Salt Lake City, Utah, this spring. Host for the convention is the Scalper chapter from the University of Utah. Expansion has been the main goal of the 1950-51 school year for this service club. At present, Eastern's Stinger chapter is work- ing to form two new chapters in Montana. These chapters are at Carroll College and Northern Montana College. Les Heins sent his scoring av- erage skyward last week end when 11 , ?. made 25 and 24 points in two games against the North- ern Lights. Heins has a total of 224 points in 11 games for a 20.4 average. Keith Thomas kept hold of second place on the Jackets' scoring list with 113 counters in 10 games for a 11.3 average.

CAMPUS With an eye toward keeping more of Eastern's male students in school, attempts are being made to secure ROTC at Eastern. The ROTC committee, combined with the War Service Credits com- mittee, has been investigating the possibilities of organizing either an ROTC or an NORTC unit on the campus. The joint committee, made up of students and faculty, is composed of Dr. Harlan C. Hinies, chairman; Mr. Arthur E. Soulsby, co-chairman; Mr. George H. Gleoge, Mr. Ralph W. Kent, Mr. Wm. S. Weichert and Miss Mar- jorie Stevenson representing the faculty and Tom Anderson, Bob Deming, Tim Mullowney, Dick Prill and Millard Simineo repre- senting the students. \The committee is further in- vestigating the possible use of educational training for military service. We do, however, have hopes that some type of military training will be established,\ stated Mr. Soulsby. Several meetings have been held with army and navy repre- sentatives, but nothing definite is known yet. Much depends on Congress, which is the final de- ciding factor.

Women's Honorary Picks New Name White skirts and white sweat- ers worn by a group of sopho- more women on Wednesdays and at school functions are the mark of Ayuda, according to President Jan Hartley. The Spanish word meaning \she helps,\ was selected last week as the new name o fthe service group which has previously been known as Spurs. With the exception of name and emblem, the organization remains the same. Eventually, it is hoped, EMCE will receive a national Spur charter. Until that time, Ayuda will operate in the spirit and service of Eastern, Miss Hart- ley said.
