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.

Dr. Paul Erlich describes the end of the technological era as only thirty years away. Graduates Give For Peace A nationwide campaign is cur- rently being waged to divert money from cap and gown rentals to a fund which is to be used to finance peace candidates for Con- gress, according to Kim Hart, a Billings student at Yale Univer- sity. The fund, known as the Peace Commencement Fund, according to its statement of purpose, has been established because: \Those who prosecute the War do so through political power and money. We can and must fight them on their own terms. . . . We are establishing this organization to back peace candidates in the November Elections. Participants in the Peace Commencement Fund will contribute the money which otherwise would be spent for the rental of caps and gowns. 0 u r Commencement exercises will become meaningful and visi- ble expressions of our opposition to the disastrous Indochina War, White belt Stuart Briggs threw three brown belts to capture the middleweight division, and brown belt Bob Barrett won the heavy- weight division and took the grand champion title of the Mis- soula Invitational Judo Tourna- ment May 16. The two Eastern Montana \Ju- doka\ members of the EMC Judo-Karate club trained by Jae Ho Park, were the only Eastern entries in the meet. \They won easily,\ commented Park, who added that observers were astonished by the strength and power of the two and their well-executed throws. \They both work hard in practice, and (con- sequently) had no throuble at all in the competition. Briggs has only been in Judo since the start of the school year, and has pleased me with his progress,\ Park commented. Competitors f r o m Montana, Wyoming, and Washington parti- cipated in the tournament, ac- cording to Park. SEX P 0 The results from a recent EMC sex poll, taken by Rita Healow and Mike Moran, show that a high percentage of cam- pus males and females favor birth control, with the pill, which, despite recent controversy, is still the most preferred method of birth control. A high percentage of campus men feel that permarital sex is not morally wrong. Women, on the other hand, generally had the opposite feeling. About 90% of those polled are in favor of family planning. The poll reveals that men do not seem particular about the intensity of the relation- ship with their sex partner and will engage in sex more freely than women. More women feel that abor- tion is murder, thus are less in favor of legalized abortion then are men. and our renewed determination to bring it to an end.\ At schools where caps and gowns have already been rented, insignia bearing the word \peace\ and a rolled diploma with a peace symbol hanging from it will be made and sold to graduates. Any faculty members, undergraduates or other citizens wishing to pur- chase the insignia or contribute to the fund will be urged to do so. This plan will be followed at Eastern Montana College, accord- ing to Susan McLuskie, since graduates have already rented their caps and gowns. The in- signia, which will be worn at Commencement, will be on sale on campus Thursday and Friday of this week and will also be available at the graduation prac- tice and senior class meeting Sat- urday, May 30. In order to make the purchase of them meaningful, students will be asked to contribute the price The book store has been the object of controversy now for a long time. Nov is the time some- thing should be done. The prob- lem is the high cost of books and supplies the students need to complete courses. The high cost comes from the need to pay for the running of the operation; wages mainly. In order to cut back the profit, the book store should be run by and for the stu- dents at cost. This is my solution: The manager of the bookstore will be a student, preferably from the business department, and knowledgable in business man- agement. The manager will be responsible for the operation of the \store\ for no more than two quarters. He or she will be re- sponsible to the Student Legisla- ture, but picked in the same way as the Rimrock or Retort editors. An advisor will be picked from the business department to advise only on matters to keep the store in the clear when needed. The management could be taken as a practicum and a waiver offered. The waiver could be for $75 per quarter. Under the manager would be the assistant manager, whose job would be to assist the manager in what ever way possible. He or she will receive about $70 per quarter and practisum credit. The store will then be divided into departments. Art depart- ment, textbook department, book (non-textbook) department (this department would handle paper- back books and books not speci- fied as texts, but that are relevant to the college community.) Other departments include the supply department which would handle paper, folders, pens, pencils, notebooks, and so forth. The gift department would handle all the little \ditties\ that are found there now. And finally the ath- letic department which would handle all athletic equipment like arrows, shoes, gymnastic equip- ment, shorts, and EMC sweat- shirts, T-shirts, jackets and so forth. Each department would be re- sponsible for itself and to the manager for prices, stores, and stock. Students for these jobs could either be on business grants or work-study students. These students would also have the op- portunity to work their way up to manager if capable. The clerks of gown rental—$3. Any dona- tion, whether larger or smaller will be accepted, McLuskie said. The Board of Advisors to the national organization include: Ramsey Clark, former U.S. At- torney General; Rev. William Sloan, Yale Chaplain; Sam Brown, Moratorium Organizer; Rt. Rev. Paul Moore, Episcopal Bishop, N.Y.C.; and Charles Pal- mer, N.S.A. President. The purpose of the fund na- tionally include providing a na- tionally coordinated effort to end the War through Congressional action, moving the money where it can do the most good, acheiving greater impact through pooling of resources, coordination with other groups, and getting students heard. The fund will be admin- istered exclusively by students, with the Board of Advisors serv- ing only in that capacity. and cashiers would be work- study students. The \store' then would be re- sponsible to the Student Legisla- ture to make sure the students were getting the best possible service. A committee for this could easily be set up.
