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.

We are proud because — we were the only small college in the conference to have a team, a feat that was accomplished despite the obstacles Coach Straugh encountered. Our team played against rugged competition and, whether winning or losing, showed keen spirit. We are proud that Chan cellor Selke recognized our team and their sportsmanship and sent his utmost congratulations to us. We did not play the freshman teams of our big brother col leges ; we played the reserves of the varsity, some of whom played on the varsity as well. The small college conference should be in operation next year, and our hopes for victory are bright. Let’s hope the football men all return next year to carry on in true M.S.N.C. tradition. VOTE FOR THE CANDIDATE OF YOUR CHOICE 1 HAT are you interested in as a student of Montana State Normal College? The answer should be education first, lots of fun secondly. The faculty will aid you in getting the first. A student activity committee is being elected to help care for the second. We ask you to elect representatives who will look out for your interests to the best of their ability and with keen foresight as to your needs. They will meet with faculty representatives and plan activities such as assemblies, dances, plays, and athletic events to make sure you get the most value for your activity ticket. We urge you to choose wisely, and elect only live-wires who will push and boost for your interests educationally and recrea- tionally—but most of all you should vote. WHAT THEY’RE READING By Elena Sliepcevich A highly amusing novel which sound's a warning between the lines is M r.. Adam by Pat Frank. The author satirizes freely. The U. S. government, the dignitaries of Washington, the brass and braid, and even Hollywood do not escape his caustic observations, and rightly so. fie awakens the reader to the crisis which faces the entire world in the disposition of the atomic bomb secret. An accidental explosion of an atomic bomb in Mississippi destroys a large portion of that state in addi tion to causing the birth rate of the entire nation to hit rock bottom. The only possible salvation that faces the nation is one Homer Adam, a shy retiring individual who was down deep in a lead mine at the time of the explosion. Mr. Adam becomes equally as great a military secret as the bomb itself and immediately miles of gov ernment red tape begin operations for his preservation which will mean the only solution to the per petuation of the human race. Man power production becomes second ary to nothing else. For sheer entertainm ent that sets the reader to deliberating on the atomic question with a profound seriousness, I recommend for enter tainment and education Mr. Adam by Pat Frank. The novel is destined to be a best-seller if present reviews are a fair indication. Charles Osborne, class of 1938, is working as a physicist in atomic research at the Massachusetts Insti tute of Technology. He will be stationed in New York, at a place selected by the M.I.T. for nuclear research.

PARTY GIVEN FOR EXCEPTIONALS On October 31, a Halloween party for the exceptional children was held in the recreation room of the exceptional departm ent in the M. S. N. C. dormitory. Those attending played games, bobbed for apples, and had treats- of popcorn, cider, and place favors. Before the party all guests attended a movie at the Hartwig Theatre. RUMORS ARE FLYING (Continued from page 1) are people who do things and just people. We write about both. * * * New faces about the campus the past week or so are those of Wayne Blomquist, a likely looking Dillon lad, and Walter' Daggett, whose friendship you must cultivate. The latter is a theologian and has a knack for dropping a word of cheer here and there. * * * Fourteen of the campus outdoor boys and girls braved the crisp au tumn air on a Sunday afternoon for a fast game of baseball. Much ex citement and action were in evi dence until Nina Fraser' and Edith Williams broke up the ball game and went home in a state of despon dency, because Kenny Nagel “stole a base” before their very eyes. Myr- tamay Stevens was really in there slugging those balls. It seems she developed her batting average in the days of the Women’s Army Corps. * + * You must plan to attend one of the Monday night women’s volley ball games. Opening the tourna ment last week was the defeat of the Dillon Delectable Delights by the Bullpups to the tune of 50-25. Stars for the D.D.D.’s were a trio of local charmers—Pat Carrigan, Jean Stamm, and Virginia Tovey. If it takes personality to play the game, these frosh definitely have it. * * * Those Vetter boys from up Ennis way are really nice people—rather shy and unassuming—a quality al most rare in this modern day and age. * * * Danny Boka and company—that is, Bud Trask and Jack Davis—put in a frequent parlor call for Lillian Fehrenkamp over dormitory way. We knew the number of men stu dents exceeded the women’s enroll ment, but has it come to this? * * * * Before I forget the matter, ponder with me for the reason that Donald Wallin removes his shoes when he sits down to chow. A faint recollec tion of Dr. Polgar’s hypnotic power ties in with my thoughts. Could be his feet are still under the spell of hypnotism? * * * Participants in the ladder tourna ment of bridge, Chinese checkers and cribbage, are putting their all into every match. Getting half way up the ladder only to find you’re due for a journey downward gives the game an added spirit of competition. * * * Time out to continue our search for what’s what and who’s whose. Only two weeks more until Turkey Day and our first week-end home for many of us. We’ll be back in the next issue to give you a rounds up of the local chatter. And re member, if you do anything you shouldn’t, you’ll read about it in this column. That’s for sure! PROFESSIONAL DIRECTORY • GEO. L. ROUTLEDGE, M. D.
