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.

America's Smartest Casual Clothes for every College Activity DRIVE INN 3 Big Boys to Serve You 1041 Broadwater Ave. First Avenue South Rimrock and and 37th Street Airport Road PLEASE DON'T LITTER THE STREETS OF BILLINGS January 16, 1959 EMCOE Page 5 Eastern Out-Hustles Eastern to Face Carroll Saints, 73-65 —by Gaylord Guenin Eastern's Yellowjackets combined individual talents with a brilliant display of team hustle Monday night to outlast a determined crew from Carroll College, 73 to 65, in a wild, crowd-pleasing conference tilt. The Saints, noted for their speedy brand of team hustle, died play- ing their own game Monday night as the Eastern quintet staged a run- ning gunning ball game that over- came an early Carroll lead and switched the advantage to the 'Jack- et bench, 36-33 at the mid-point break. Gene Espeland, Eastern's go-for- broke forward, stuffed in a jump shot from the top of the key with less than two minutes remaining in the first half to put Eastern in front 28-27. Espeland counted another jump shot seconds latter to guaran- tee the 'Jacket advantage. Espeland led all scorers with 25 points, followed by teammate Bob McWilliams with 17. Terry Walsh, Carroll team captain, led the vis- itors with a individual effort of 16. Coach Feldner's fired up Yellow- jackets continued to pace the Saints in the second half, with Espeland and McWilliams sparking Eastern's attack. The Saints rallied late in the last half, forcing the 'Jacket offense in an attempt to pick up some Eastern errors, but the Carroll rally lacked sufficient time. GET YOUR ANNUAL PICTURE TAKEN SOON. SIGN-UP SHEETS AT ACTIVITIES OFFICE. Coach Feldner's Yellowjackets will have an opportunity to sharpen the tools of their trade tonight and Saturday night when they meet the highly-touted Westminster Parsons, from Salt Lake City, in a pair of non- conference games in Eastern's gym. The 'Jackets, fresh from Monday nights 73-65 romp over the Carroll College Saints, now have an overall season record of two wins and seven losses, and Eastern will probably have to come up with the same fire and hustle they showed in the Car- roll game in order to improve on their record when they meet the perpetually strong Parsons. Coach Feldner expressed optimism towards his teams chances in the coming series. Feldner said, \The team has shown steady improve- ment during the last five games,\ and he felt that Eastern would not only show stronger against the West- minster team, but should also be up for the remaining conference tilts. According to the N.A.I.A.'s basket- Intramural Schedule January 19-23 Mon.—Superkats vs. Scrubs Tues.—Bootleggers vs. Green House Five Plus Two Wed.—Superkats vs. Beefshots Thurs.—Bootleggers vs. Scrubs Fri.—Has Beens vs. Green House Five Plus Two Westminster ball statistical report released this month, the Parsons rank 29 among the small colleges across the nation in team defense, holding opponents to a average of 60.8 points per game, and as a team totaling 608 rebounds in ten games. Leading the Parsons rebounding attack is a six-six sophomore cen- ter, Al Barnett„ who will bear watching in this weekends series. Al is listed 17th among the individ- ual rebounders by the N.A.I.A., with 156 controls in ten games. Westminster got off to a slow start this season but now seem to be in the middle of a winning streak, with an 8-4 record as of Jan. 3. Much of the Parsons sudden surge can be attributed to veteran guard, Jim Frankos, who is clipping along at an average of 14-plus points per game. March of Dimes Tomorrow Tomorrow the annual March of Dimes will pass Eastern's Dorms on the way to the Airport. Armed Forces Reservists and girls from a local Radio station will march. For each dime contributed a step will be taken, until the participants can complete their journey up to the airport and back down. Any contributions from the students will be greatly appreciated, so let's all get out and help the March of Dimes!
