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.

The RETORT Vol 12, No. 8 Billings, Montana May 22, 1959. EMCE Places 66 Teachers R. J. McRae, science department, points to a charge-over-mass-ratio apparatus for the elec- tron.

Morgan Clarifies IBM Cut Over Eastern College will install a Series 50 IBM data processing ma- chine, Francis Morgan, coordin- ator of installations, revealed. The installation will include such basic data processing ma- chines as card punch, sorter, re- producer, interpreter and account- ing machines but no computer, he added. The machines will be primarily used by the Registrar and the business offices, Morgan added. He said the installation will fa- cilitate the diAribution of enroll- ment data and increase the effici- ency and speed for compiling sta- tistical information. All the finan- cial records recorded by the busi- ness office, Morgan said, will be processed by the machines. The cut over to the machines by the business office will be by July 1, he said. Morgan added one of the minor applications to be put on the ma- chines will be an inventory of the college.

The Student Legislature Tues- day discussed the recent Student Legislature elections, the handling of the \Clean-Up Day\ activities, and the condition of the driveways on campus. Mr. Louis Veraldi, advisor of the group, led a discussion con- cerning the elections. With regard to the ballot stuffing incident, the legislature decided to carry out future elections with a student directory so that students cannot vote twice. The legislature also discussed a rumor that some of the members of the legislature had made adverse comments about some of the candidates. This prac- tice was condemned by the group. Mr. Veraldi reported that Miss Saunders had objected to the handling of the \Clean-Up Day\ activities. He stated that the group had failed to clear the date with her, and that this should have been done. He also said that the Stu- dent Legislature should make an effort to contact all of the groups to get as many people out as pos- sible for subsequent games. The third item on the agenda was a suggestion made by Sharon Powers that the Student Legisla- ture submit a formal complaint to the building and grounds commit- tee about the condition of the driveways on campus. The mem- bers of the group voted unani- mously to submit such a complaint. This Week at Eastern May 22-29, 1959 Exhibit — Annual Exhibit of Students at Eastern.

Three members of the cast are seasoned actors—peppery The pillars of the Student Uni- on Building swung with rhythm Tuesday as the voice of Roy Petti vibrated throughout the building. This famed nightclub entertainer appeared free of charge by special request to perform before the stu- dent body in an informal con- vocation. It was interesting to note that the influx of students for this program greatly surpassed the us- ual attendance at previous convo- cations. In addition to his talented voice, Mr. Petti possesses a Master's De- gree in music and a triple minor —English, Psychology, and Physi- cal Education. He attended college in Nashville, Tennessee, and New Orleans. \It's kinda rough out in that cruel world without these degrees,\ stated Mr. Petti. Originally from Texas, Mr. Pet- ti is on tour of what the nightclub entertainers term the \Northwest circuit.\ He has appeared at the Bella Vista for the past six weeks and will remain there until Sun- day. Mr. Petti had one comment to make about a musical future: \It's a real big life.\ Recognition goes to Don Hern- don, Susie Dietrich, and Jerie Miller for inviting Mr. Petti to appear. Also, many thanks to the Student Legislature for appropri- ating the money to sponsor the musicians. Petti was accompanied by Hank Andrews on the drums and Milly DeCamp on the piano. These two also showed an excellent display of talent. Dick Westwell, who has six col- lege productions behind him; salty Neil Lininger, who has been active in college dramatics, at Rocky as well as at Eastern, and sage Jerry Schmidts, who is appearing in his third Eastern production. The production continues to- night and tomorrow night. Stu- dents are admitted on their ac- tivity cards. Guest charge is $1. Curtain time is 8:15 p. m.
