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.

II BILLINGS, MONTANA, MONDAY, APRIL 6, 1930 NO. 4 SCHOOL ACTS AS HOST TO MUSIC MEET VETERAN PUBLISHER GUEST OF SCHOOL On March 26-28 the Eastern Mon- tana Normal School had the pleas- ure of hearing several unusually interesting lectures by Mr. W. W. Ellsworth, for forty years associ- ated with the Century Publishing Company, most of that time as sec- retary and treasurer. Mr. Ellsworth is a very fluent speaker who has a remarkable gift for sharing his varied experience with his hearers. On Thursday, March 26, at 11 a. m. he spoke at the Babcock on the three English romanticists, Keats, Shelley, and Byron, using slides to show pictures of the men, views of the spots made famous by them, and reproductions of the original manuscripts of certain poems. Speaks On Shakespeare On Thursday evening at the Com- mercial Club, Mr. Ellsworth was the principal speaker, the occasion being the annual student - faculty dinner for the Billings teachers. Mr. Ellsworth's subject was Shake- speare—His Life and Times. Business Men Hear Mr. Ellsworth At the weekly luncheon of the Billings Commercial Club Friday noon, Mr. Ellsworth related a series of interesting and amusing anec- dotes about various writers he has known, including Sir Conan Doyle, Mark Twain, Joseph Jefferson, Sir Henry Stanley, John Burroughs and Jack London. Mr. Ellsworth stated that authors generally are a very likeable and human sort of people and that in all his experiences he has never seen an incident such as the recent Lewis-Dreiser affair. A visit to the home of Arnold Bennett, who died last Friday, was described by the speaker. Bennett was one of England's most brilliant novelists and dramatists. It was a unique experience to the business men to hear the noted authors of the last generation spoken of in such an intimate and personal way. (Continued on Page 3) DELTA PSI OMEGA MEETS On March 21 Delta Psi Omega, national honorary dramatic frater- nity, initiated three new members —Evelyn Rhodes, Margaret Rob- erts, and Esther Farnum. The meeting was held at the home of Miss Dewey, faculty sponsor. The evening was spent informally, and a delicious lunch was served. Membership in this fraternity is based upon a definite amount of participation in public perform- ances. Stage managing and scene designing are included. Mr. Foote attended the County Superintendent's Conference held at Helena the week of March 16-20. This yearly conference is called by the state superintendent to con- sider new laws and how to make them operative, plans for supervi- sion of teachers, how to secure better teaching of the various sub- jects of the elementary school cur- riculum, and many other items per- tinent to the duties of the office of county superintendent. Mr. Foote addressed the confer- ence on the following subjects: \Individual Instruction in Rural Schools'; \Vocational Guidance of Rural Children\; \Preparation and Placing of the Graduates of the Eastern Montana Normal School\; and \The Training of Teachers in Service.\ Attends Executive Council Friday of the same week, Mr. Foote attended the executive coun- cil meeting of the Greater 'Univer- sity of Montana at Helena, repre- senting President McMullen of the Eastern Montana Normal. This council is composed of the presi- dents of the units of the University, the dean of the Law School, the d ian of the Faculty of the Uni- versity, the director of the exten- sion service, the director of the experiment stations, besides the Chancellor and the executive secre- A meeting of the educators of the Midland Empire Education As- sociation will hold a convention at Spokane on April 8, 9, 10, with representatives from Washington, Oregon, Idaho and Montana. A number of men from the eastern part of the state besides members and representatives of the Univer- sity units of the state of Montana, will be present. This year the E. M. N. S. is sending only those who have part in the program. Dr. H. C. Hines will speak on the gen- eral program and also at the School- masters' Banquet. His topic at the general session will be on \Signs of Intelligence.\ President L. B. Mc- Mullen has been asked to lead the singing for the convention and to organize a male chorus, which will sing at the schoolmasters' banquet and will lead the assembly singing on the last morning. Mr. C. V. Ridgely has written horn quartette parts for all the convention songs. He will go to Spokane a few days in advance in order to train approx- imately twenty high school boys to aid in leading the convention sing. ing. Principal Payne Templeton, Superintendent of Flathead County schools at Kalispell, who is presi. dent of the Inland Empire Associa tion, is arranging the program. STATE WIDE CONTEST BRINGS MANY HERE Eastern Montana Normal school and the city of Billings will this year act as hosts for the annual state music meet to be held in this city April 23-25. This is the first time this important interscholastic event has been fostered by the school, and much cooperation has already been evidenced. Local Committee At Work A very able committee composed of Dr. L. B. McMullen, A. T. Peter- son, C. V. Ridgely, and C. H. Ru- zicka of the Chamber of Commerce, has been in frequent conference to perfect plans for the meet. At the meeting held March 25th arrange- ments were made for the engage- ment of six public auditoriums to house the several divisions of the contest, it being necessary that each division have a separate place in which to compete. Many Guests Expected Approximately six hundred stud- ents from various local districts of the state are expected. They will be entertained in private homes during their stay in Billings. The arrangements for these accommo- dations as well as those for trans- portation are in the hands of the above mentioned committee. A statewide committee, composed of representatives from high schools throughout the state, will act with the local committee in appointing judges for the various sections as well as securing trophies, medals and awards for winning compet- itors. The art department of the school will prepare blue and gold badges lettered with the name and address of each contestant. It is hoped that the auditorium at the fair grounds may be secured to house the larger meetings in order to accommodate the people of the city and vicinity who may wish to attend. POPULARITY VOTE TAKEN The most representative boy and the most representative girl were selected from the student body in a contest that opened Monday, March 30, and closed Wednesday night, April 1. This contest is of a differ- ent nature from the popularity con- test of previous years. The following qualifications were considered: popularity of student, prominence in school affairs, ability to mix with others, and scholar- ship, Seniors cast their vote at a class meeting March 30, while the A, B, and C groups voted in group meetings. The results will be pub- lished in the annual.
