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.

Enlist- (Continued on page 3) Students Given Reserve Status In Service Branches Plan Lets College Students Pursue Studies Montana State Normal College will take its place in the defense effort this fall, along with many other American institutions of high­ er learning, by giving academic preparation to young men who will later go from college into the vari­ ous units of our fighting forces. There are different classes into which young men of 17 years of age and upward may enlist. Among these are the Army Air Corps, the Navy, Reserve Officers’ Training, and the Marines. Acceptance by any of these groups means that the candidate may complete his four years of college before being called to active duty. The only case in which he might be called before the four years are completed is in the event of a serious national emer­ gency. All students who attend under this program must meet certain educational standards while in school. Failure to maintain scholas­ tic averages would mean immediate induction into active service. America needs officers and flyers for the future, and M.S.N.C. is glad to contribute to this effort. All high school graduates who are interested in serving their country by attend­ ing college should communicate with the Registrar of the Normal College. Dr. Farmer, who is Faculty Mili­ tary Adviser, received word August 1 from the Commanding General of (Continued on page 2) Degree graduates of the Normal College will be scattered widely over the state during the coming year in some of the best teaching positions in Montana.
