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.

Skunk shooting was a popular hobby among students at the Junior High School in Kaycee, Wyoming, where he once taught. Rollins said that his sensi- tive nose made teaching there a lit- tle unpleasant—many of the skunk shooters neglected to bathe after their hunting excursions! Dr. Rollins taught at Kaycee after receiving his bachelor's degree from the University of Wyoming. Upon leaving Kaycee, he went to Omaha, Nebraska. There he attended night classes at Omaha University and worked as a rate clerk for the Union Pacific Railroad Co. He left Omaha to study at the University of Utah, where he received his Ph.D. It was then that Dr. Rollins came to Billings and joined Eastern's fac- ulty. At present, he serves as chair- man of the Faculty Council here and is faculty sponsor of the Social Science club. Dr. Rollins' teaches Social Studies and he prefers history to other sub- jects. He spends his leisure time reading books on Social Science. He is an avid spectator but does not participate in sports. The greater part of Dr. Rollin's time is devoted to his family—which, by the way, consists of a wife and seven daughters. When asked what kind of financial plan he had ar- ranged for his daughters' weddings, he replied, \I plan on helping them arrange to elope.\ NATIVE MONTANAN (Continued) Bosa at Syracuse university. Pomeroy is a native of Sidney, Montana, and saw military service as a pilot with the U. S. Air Corps. He is married and has three chil- dren. Smith to Appear At Winter Concert Leonard Smith, famed cornet and trumpet virtuoso, will be guest sol- oist at Eastern's winter band con- cert scheduled Feb. 12 at 7:30 p. m. in the college gym, R. J. Colwell, director of bands, announced today. The concert will culminate an all- day cornet clinic conducted on cam- pus by Smith. Aspiring young musi- cians have, at past Smith-conducted clinics, benefited from the vast background of experience which Mr. Smith brings into the teaching situ- ation. In addition to being a famed solo- ist, conductor and teacher, Mr. Smith has also achieved recognition as a composer. He has composed several solos, marches and special arrange- ments which are listed in the cata- logs of some of America's leading publishing houses. Smith, an alumnus of the Ameri- can School Band Movement, was principal cornet soloist of the famed Goldman Band. At 22 he became the first trumpeter of the Detroit Symphony Orchestra. He later held the same position with the Ford Sun- day Evening Hour Orchestra. After serving in the Navy from 1942-46, Smith established his own professional concert band. He has been conducting it as well as per- forming as one of its soloists throughout the country. FROSH TO SPONSOR (Continued) Freshman class and will feature live music instead of the record hop as originally planned, Carol Saunder, dean of women announced today. She revealed that the dance had been rescheduled by the Student Leg- islature as a band dance with music to be furnished by Frankie Lange. Dean Saunders and Student Union Board prexy Mary Carter stated that girls wear skirts and not jeans to the dances and that all guests must have a ticket. Rifle Club Wants More Oscar Bjorgum, Eastern's Rifle Club advisor heaved a hollow sigh during the January meeting at the rifle range and wistfully mumbled, \Man we sure need more members.\ The rifle club meets every Wed- nesday night at 7:30 p. m. The scene of action is the rifle range located in the basement of the Science Building. Membership is dirt cheap, 50 cents a quarter. Also, you may buy ammunition from Bjorgum for only 55 cents a box. Club members are given the privilege of using Eastern's fine rifle range, its excel- lent rifles and scopes. Students with an affection for the pungent smell of burnt powder and the crack of small arms are invited to contact Mr. Bjorgum or to at- tend the next meeting.
