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.
Pane 10 S o c c e r S a i n t s A c r o s s t h e U n i v e r s e n o t p l a y f o r N a t s First game at noon Friday By Brent Northup The Saints are making history by hosting the Region I play-offs starting Friday, Nov. 2. Game time today, Friday, is noon at Nelson stadium. Coming off their best season yet, the Saints will seek to win a ticket to nationals this weekend. The Saints begin their quest at noon Friday against Oregon Tech. That game will be followed by a 3 p.m. game between Concordia of Portland and Simon Fraser of Brit ish Columbia. \We're very excited to have re gional in Flelena,\ said senior Ka tie Smith, a defensive midfielder. \We’re hoping the home field, the altitude, the weather and our loyal fans will give us the advantage we'll need to win regionals.\ The winner of regionals will earn an automatic berth to nationals. However, if the Saints don't win the title, they could still be selected for a second conference regional berth to nationals. \Waiting for news of a second berth is stressful, overwhelming and you can't focus on school,\ said Smith. \We'd like to know Saturday afternoon so we can get ready to make our mark on Day tona Beach, Fla.\ Nationals begins Wednesday, Nov. 14 in Florida. The Saints qualified for nationals last year after losing the regional championship game in an overtime shootout to Concordia, the Saints nemesis. The Saints finished the regular season 15-1-1, with its only loss coming to Rocky Mountain Col lege. Carroll tied Simon Fraser.

Throw these in a blender with some water. Now pour yourself a big glass of Across the Universe, a Beatles musical film. Every adapted song in the movie is a Beatles song. The songs don’t simply flavor the plot, however; they are the plot. Even the characters are bor rowed from the Beatles. The story follows Jude, a Liverpool teen who escapes to the States and meets Max and his sister Lucy along with a group of misfits with Beatles-in- spired names like Sadie, JoJo and Prudence. Jude and Lucy fall in love, but are tom apart by the tumultuous early-1960s. Before that, though, a variety of song-and-dance mo ments occur. The film is strongest when these musical moments serve the plot. When Prudence is sexually frustrated, the cast sings “Dear Prudence” to her, and you believe that the Beatles must have written the song for this moment. The film falls flat when musi cal moments occur simply for their own sake. When Max is recover ing from Vietnam, he sings the Beatles hit “Happiness is a Warm Gun,” because he wants medica tion. This five-minute tangent is hardly a crucial plot point. The film makes up for these diversions by being visually enchanting. U2 star Bono makes a cameo as Dr. Robert in the obligatory acid trip scene, which is capped by another cameo from Eddie Izzard as Mr. Kite. Though little happens in this section to advance the story, the bizarre visu als and characterization of the drug era is worth the time.
