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.

RURAL EDUCATION STUDENTS BECOME ARTISTS For a part of their work in the rural education class, the students discuss such subjects as play- ground equipment, school stand- ards, and advantages of a well- equipped school. Each student seemed to have a little 'different idea as to what the playground should have, and what the well arranged schoolroom should contain. It was then decided that each one represent his own idea by putting it on paper. The next meeting brought forth some very artistic plans of playgrounds and schoolrooms. These were made more interesting when they were shown as moving pictures in the slide machine. They brought up more discussion and with it came some satisfaction. NEWS LETTER FAVORABLY RECEIVED The weekly news letter sent by the class in advanced composition to the local papers in various coun- ties was gladly received by the,. editors. A good deal of space was given to the articles. Some of the edi- tors have written expressing their thanks and asking that more ma- terial be sent. Other editors who were accidentally missed in the sending of the letter have written asking that they too receive infor- mation concerning activities in Eastern Montana Normal School. HUMORIST SPEAKS AT GENERAL ASSEMBLY A general assembly was held at the high school auditorium Febru- ary 14 at 11 o'clock, at which time Geoffrey F. Morgan, noted lecturer and humorist, spoke to the Eastern Montana Normal School students and high-school seniors. Mr. Morgan's subject was \The Man Ahead.\ His words of advice were interspersed with clever and humorous remarks. His aim was to make his audience view them- selves as they will be 20 years from now, and to have eachlone see the responsibility he has in making that person what he should be. Mr.'Morgan pointed out that we should save our health, and build our character and bank account for the man ahead. He said, \We each have or can acquire these things, and we alone can deliver them to ourselves 20 years from now.\ PLAY PRESENTED FOR WOMEN'S CLUBS The play, \A Fan and Two Can- dlesticks,\ was presented under the direction of Miss Martha E. Dewey of the speech department of the Eastern Montana Normal School, at a meeting of the Yellowstone County Federation of Women's Clubs, on February 20. Costumes for the play were made by the class in dramatic art. The cast included Miss Ruth Shively, Miss Thelma Burgess and Miss Irene Hender- shott. \THE LEARNED LADIES\ ALL WOMEN CAST PRESENTS PLAY The dramatics art class will pro- duce the play, \The Learned La- dies\ on Wednesday, March 12. This is a French play by Jacques Moliere. This play is in three acts, all of which take place on the same day. It is a satire on education for women. There are many amusing scenes in which the learned mem- bers of the family try to raise the rest of the household to a \philo- sophic aim.\ The play centers around Trissa- tin, a poet, a favorite of the affect- ed learned ladies, who tries to marry the younger daughter, in opposition to Clitandre, a pendant, a favorite of the father and the true lover of the daughter. Class Makes Costumes Because of the 16th century cos- tuming it is possible to have a cast composed entirely of women. The elaborate costumes required are being designed and made by the class. The Cast Chrysale, a worthy citizen, played by Mary Hampton; Philaminte, wife of Chrysale, played by Sarah Jane Jones; Armande and Henriette, daughters of Chrysale, played by Allene Beckett, and Lowene Lloyd; Ariste, brother of Chrysale, played by Catherine Frahm; Belise, sister of Chrysale, played by Thelma Wendte; Clitandre, in love with Henriette, played by Mary Price; Trissatin, a wit, played by Irene Hendershot; Martine, a kitchen maid, played by Elizabeth Leslie; Lepine, played by Madelin Hunter. MMER SCHOOL BULLETIN READY The summer school bulletin is ow ready to send to 500 prospec- tive students. It is hoped that all past records of attendance will be broken this year. The enrollment of the 1929 sum- mer quarter of the Eastern Mon- tana Normal was surpassed only by the enrollment of the state univer- sity at Missoula. The summer school of nine weeks is one of the regular quarters of the school year. It enables a high school graduate to complete a normal school course in less than two calendar years, and offers to teachers now in the field an opportunity to work for a higher certificate. The fees for the summer session are the same as for a regular quar- ter except that no non-resident fee is charged. The fine opportunities for outing trips and the delightful climate should attract many from other states.
