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.

It seems that lately he has been receiving intelligence through rather unusual channels. At the meeting of Eastern men students earlier this week on scholastic draft deferments, Mr. Aikins quoted the late General Pershing on student deferment requirements. Need- less to say, a mild wonderment was aroused but the situation was later cleared up when it developed that a slip of the tongue was responsible for his substituting General Pershing's name for General Hershey. Well, Mr. Aikins! I guess that dates you!
