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 voter turnout was high- er than anticipated, reaching 7.6%, unprecedented in an un- contested election. Consider- ing that MSUB student elec- tions generally average a vot- er turnout of between three and five percent, this election 'cle is considered to have a \high\ voter turnout. Following the official elec- tion into office of Ryan Shore and Mary Owen, the two were interviewed for reac- tions to the election and what they most look forward to in the coming academic year. \I was surprised at a larg- er voter turnout than expect- ed because of the uncontest- ed race, and am pleased with the results. Mary and I are ex- cited to serve the community of Billings and the students of MSUB, and we are excit- ed to serve with the new EC and to use the PR commit- tee to go out and have a pos- itive effect on the lower in- come districts of Billings. We also want to address the issue of being severely underfund- ed compared to MSU and U of M with local politicians sur- rounding Yellowstone Coun- ty.\ — incoming ASMSUB President Ryan Shore \I am really excited about all the possibilities next year has in store. Ryan and I have some really cool ideas of how we can give back to the stu- dents on our campus and to the Billings community as a whole. We will be working with a talented group of sen- ators and EC members, and we hope to strengthen part- nerships with other campus and community groups, as well as legislators.\ — incom- ing ASMSUB Vice President Mary Owen Elected Main Campus Sen- ators: Jordan Jones - Junior, His- tory Education Quincy Linhart Junior, Communication Dan Barnhart - Sophomore, Political Science Ali Iverson - Sophomore, Criminal Justice and Sociol- ogy Ashlee Rangitsch - Senior Human Services and Crimi- nal Justice Alex Furois - Freshman, Business Management Brock Boender - Sopho- more, Music Matthew Dockter - Sopho- more, Criminal Justice Chase Slade - Senior, Mar- keting & Management Megan Dolezal - Sopho- more, English Education Stephanie Thome - Junior, Accounting Garth Demaree (received write-in vote for City College) The Executive Commit- tee consists of the following three positions: Student Resolution Offi- cer.

MSUB HOSTS 45TH ANNUAL POWWOW TORT STAR News Writer M ontana State Uni- versity Billings held its 45th an- nual Powwow on Friday and Saturday, April 5th and 6th. The Alterowitz Gymnasium came alive with the bright colors, the steady beat of the traditional music and the per- cussion of dancers' feet on the floor. The annual Powwow is a time for tribes around Mon- tana to gather, reconnect, and celebrate American Indian culture. The Powwow was also a great opportunity to raise funds for scholarships through MSUB's American Indian Outreach office. \I re- ally want the community to know that it is open for every- one and we're not just target- ing Natives. You don't have to be Native to dance in the dances; anyone can partici- pate,\ Charlie Rondeaux, an MSUB student member of In- tertribal Indian Club, stated.
