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.

ON LEAVE OF ABSENCE W lIlSS JESSIE DUBOC, assistant professor of education, has been granted a year’s leave of absence. She is using this 1 time to collect materials about the “way of life” among the red and white men of early Montana. For a number of years Miss Duboc has been interested in this field and doing some work in it. THE AMERICAN WAY OF LIFE ♦1 HE AMERICAN WAY OF LIFE, to an American and to many who are not Americans, stands “head and shoulders” above that of any other nation in our world. It means a way of living in which people may prosper according to their own efforts, where what you yourself are means more to your neigh­ bors than what your parents or other ancestors were. It indicates opportunity; no one has any right to interfere with your aims or desires as long as no other person is injured. One’s life may be managed according to his own measure as long as he does not harm his neighbor. It means freedom, freedom to worship as you like, read what you like, air your own opinions, and listen to other's opinions on any subject that you want to discuss. It means comfort, bounteous food supplies, blue skies, clear streams, green grass, and the right to enjoy them. It means homes, friends, families, bound together by tradition and by faith in the future. Once knowing it, who would live otherwise than in the American way? 1942 CHINOOK DISTRIBUTED TODAY IN ROOM 303 (Continued from page 1) or former' students who had entered the U. S. forces. Pictures of a large num ber of the boys appear on these added pages.

After the Chinook was distrib­ uted and the thrill of seeing another school term tucked away with the annual, it was evident that 1942 had brought the students another fine Chinook.

SUSIE GETS HER RATIONING CARD Susie M.S.N.C. strode proudly into the Bagley Building gym. Tonight was her night, because alone and unassisted she was to get a sugar rationing card. Susie’s mother would never have dreamed of let­ ting her little darling go alone to such a place, but mother was many miles distant. Susie walked bravely up to one of the desks and looked into a pair of the bluest eyes; too bad the young man with the blue eyes couldn’t have seen over Susie’s bags and into her gray ones, but such is fate. After tabulating the card he was working on, he glanced up and be­ held Susie, a typical M.S.N.C. co-ed. Her hair was pulled over one eye in hope of a Veronica Lake style, her sweater sleeves were pulled up to her elbows and her sports coat was casually slung over her shoul­ der. There was an absent look on her face, as if it had always be­ longed there. “You would like a ration card?” the young man asked (the dope, what else would have taken Susie away from a bridge game at the Dorm?) Susie nodded her head. To have said yes would have necessi­ tated moving her gum. “And how much sugar do you have on store?” went on the pleas­ ing voice. (He could afford to be pleasing, lie was getting out of work to do this.) At this question the gum was entirely forgotten—to Su­ sie’s face came a horrible look of surprise. “Well I have a small sack which I was counting on to use for fudge but” (tears coming to her' eyes—this was to be a supreme sac­ rifice) “if the government needs it I will give it up,” said our patriotic red-blooded Susie. “That won’t be necessary,” an­ swered the young man (wondering if all school teachers were this dumb) “you live at the Dormitory, don’t you?” To this, Susie replied with a nod, her face lighting up for a moment at the thought of the Dormitory and the spread she was invited to that night. “Well that’s all,” said the young man, filling in the blanks—“Just one more thing—your age please.” Park­ ing the gum securely under a molar that needed repairs, Susie said “sev­ enteen.” The young man smiled sweetly, realizing it would do no good to explain to Susie that you had to be eighteen to get a card, “Thank you, lady; your card will be sent to you when the government needs your sugar.” Susie nodded once more and made her way from the gym, proud that today she had taken the reins of life in her own hands and had join­ ed the class of those men behind the w ar with the guns. Wednesday, May 27, 1942 FACTS ABOUT NAVY V-l at M. S. N. C. The Navy’s V-l Plan under which Fresh­ men and Sophomores from 17 through 19 years of age can continue their courses and prepare to become officers in the Naval Reserve has been ac­ cepted by our school. Hundreds of colleges and universities are backing the Navy’s V-l program, and thou­ sands of students in other schools have already enlisted under this plan. Only 80,000 men will be accepted annually for this training, but the Navy wants these men to be fully acquainted with all V-l details before enlistment. Many questions have been asked. In this column we will answer those most frequently asked and in addition carry informative articles covering all phases of V-l activities. Some questions asked are: Q. I am a sophomore and will be 20 years old next month. Can I enlist in V-l? A. Yes. If you have not yet reached 20 and you are otherwise qualified, you’re eligible. ☆ ☆ ☆ Q. When the war ends, do I stay in the Service ? A. Under V-l, you enlist in the Naval Reserve. As an enlisted man or as an officer, you may be released from active duty as soon as possible after the war is over. ☆ ☆ ☆ Q. Will the Navy pay my tuition and other expenses while I am still in college under the V-l plan ? A. No. Navy pay does not start until you are assigned to active duty. ☆ ☆ ☆ Q. What is the citizenship requirement for acceptance for V-l? A. Applicants for V-l must have been citizens for at least 10 years before the date of application. Professional Directory • G. L.
