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.

Well, you see, today is Tuesday as far as classes are concerned, and Tuesday was Friday, class- wise. Normally the Retort staff does most of its work Tuesday— but that's today. So on Tuesday they had to do Friday's work— and that, as far as the Retort is concerned, didn't amount to much. This may not he the only \short Retort\ this year; cancellation of national advertising may reduce the paper's budget so that an oc- casional two-page issue will be necessary. This five foot three inch, dark- haired, brown eyed, gal's reaction to the question of how she likes school was, \Well . . I just like it, you all.\ She was shocked when she was notified that she had been selected as a Homecoming queen candidate. Also a Billings girl, Bonnie Shaw has a variety of interests which are seen by her curriculum at Eastern. This blonde, blue-eyed, five-foot six-inch girl is a pre- nursing student. Her hobby is oil painting, and her adeptness to it can be shown by the fact that at Billings Senior high school she painted a mural in the cafeteria on dramatics, entitled, \All the World's a Stage.\ Also BHS Bon- nie was a member of Pep and Ac- tivity Klub, and she served as the vice - president of Distributive Education Clubs of America. Bonnie is also very interested in classical music and enjoys lis- tening to concerts and symphonies. She is a vivacious person who likes to be with people. She stated, \I have never had any thing like this before, so to be a Homecom- ing candidate is really exciting, and it makes me feel like more a part of the school.\ Since her home is on a ranch about 25 miles out of Jordan, Mont., it is natural that sopho- more Jadee Twitchell's favorite activity is horseback riding. She also enjoys that sport of swim- ming. Jadee lives in the girls dor- mitory at Eastern. She is major- ing in elementary education and next year hopes to obtain a teach- ing position. One of her activities at school is that she is a member of the Student Education Associa- tion. \I was very, very happy and floored to be selected as one of the four Homecoming candidates,\ Jadee exclaimed. \Since this is my last year at Eastern, this gives me something especially nice to remember from college.\ At her high school in Jordan, Jadee was a cheerlealer, presi- dent of the junior class, president of Girls Athletic Association, sophomore Student Council repre- sentative and a twirler. This sophomore has long hair, brown eyes and is five feet, five and a half inches tall. The Homecoming convocation scheduled for Tuesday morning at 11, Oct. 20, has been divided ten- tatively into two sections of 25 minutes each. One section will feature the style show in which Homecoming Queen candidates will appear as models and the second section will be devoted to the introduction of Eastern's foot- ball team. The cheerleaders sup- ported by the band will introduce some of Eastern's cheers to the student body. \The way things are progress- ing right now with all the cooper- ation the members of the Home- coming committee are receiving, I'm sure this year's Homecoming will be the best in the history of Eastern,\ stated Carol Brown, re- flecting the cooperative attitude displayed by Eastern's student or- ganizations, faculty members, and sponsoring business organizations. Bill Hilton, student legislature president, reported Oct. 7 at the weekly Homecoming committee meeting that Student Legislature voted to grant $10 to each organi- zation to be used to prepare a float for the homecoming parade, Saturday, Oct. 24. Requisitions for this monetary grant should be filed by club treasurers with Judy Schwalger sometime before Homecoming. Queen Candidates Hilton introduced the four Homecoming Queen candidates nominated by Eastern's football team to reign over all Homecom- ing activities. Candidates are Martha Earl, Billings, freshman; Linda Farley, St. Albans, W. Va., freshman; Bonnie Shaw, Billings, freshman; and Jadee Twitchell, Jordan, sophomore.

The Moonglows, a campus or- chestra, will provide music for the dance. Refreshments will be served and admission is by East- ern activity card or as a guest of an EMCE student.

The Mystery Mixer is tentatively scheduled from 8 to 11 Friday evening, Oct. 23, so that any in- terested student may complete de- corations on floats.
