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.

Program Features Speakers of Note The district convention and joint institute, to be held in Billings, October 22-25, is calling in many of our former students, as well as other teachers, superintendents, and interested schoolmen. Nation- ally known speakers will take part in both meetings, the convention being opened Thursday evening by Dr. George E. Carrothers of the University of Michigan, who will also address the joint institute at 11 o'clock, Thursday morning, and will speak to administrators and teachers at 3:30 p. m. The entire time of the meetings will be filled with interesting and valuable activities. On Friday eve- ning and Saturday morning section- al meetings of county superintend- ents, teachers of various subjects, and principals will be held. Will Present Pageant On Friday evening the city of Bil- lings will present a pageant in which all schools will take part. The theme Ortge - 151fgaarif - y o the system and the need for support by the people. The Singing Moth- ers of the local P. T. A. will be an added attraction in this program. The pageant, which will be held at the Fairgrounds, will be followed by a dance. The exact place of the dance is being kept a secret to be announced at the Fairgrounds. Babcock Offers Attraction In addition to the foregoing, there has been booked a free, illustrated lecture on the city of Washington. The Babcock theater will offer one of the most outstanding pictures of the year, entitled \Lincoln.\ To avoid conflict with other activities, two special performances will be given, one late in the evening and one late in the afternoon. Saturday afternoon following the close of the convention is the high school football game between Sher- idan and the \Billings Broncs.\ MAGICIAN GIVES SHOW An excellent performance was given at the high school auditorium Thursday, October 9, at 8 o'clock, when Birch, the Magician bedazzled A wondering group of children and grownups with his tricks. Mr. Birch is a first-class magi- cian, as well as an exceedingly humorous entertainer. His \patter\ is quite wonderful, and they tell us that this phase of such a perform- ance is one of the most important parts. He was assisted by several small boys from the audience, and kept the crowd in gales of laughter. The activity tickets admitted Nor- mal School students to this enter- tainment. Basketball Outlook Is Very Promising TO FORMER STUDENTS AND GRADUATES OF THE EASTERN MONTANA NORMAL SCHOOL You will be glad 'to know thr t the Eastern Montana Normal School is starting on its fourth year with an increased attendance over a year ago, with exactly the same faculty members as last year, with its usual enthusiasm and with its usual fine quality of students. We hope that the enthusiasm manifest in the school exists, also, among those who a - ..‘e out in the field teaching and, from the letters that have come to us, we are sure that this is the case. This letter of mine is intended to be a greeting from your school, but it is intended, besides, to urge upon you the necessity of belonging to the Montana Education Association and the great desirability of attending one of its meetings, October 23, 24, 25. At each of the sectional meetings of the M., E. A. a reunion luncheon of former Eastern Montana Normal School students will be held. The luncheon at Billings will be on Friday, the 24th, and will be presided over by Miss Hazel Hilton, now presi- dent of the Luncheon Club. Arrangements are being made for luncheons at both Great Falls and Butte. We know now that Miss Stevenson and Mr. Dean me planning to be in Great Falls during the convention, and undoubtedly some members of our faculty will attend at Butte. We hope that you will be present at one of these meetings and that you will not let anything interfere with your attendance at the reunions. —L. B. McMULLEN. Mr. Oscar Bjorgum reports that he has thirteen men in his physical education class this quarter. That's about four more than he had last year at this time. Right now the men are doing a little work in football, but about November 15 the real work will start. At that time Mr. Bjorgum plans to line the men up for basket- ball. There are three or four promis- rng men in the class besides three who played basketball for us last year. The last year's players are John Abrahamson, Lawrence Aber, and Charles Corbett. Another play- er from last year, Elmer Swanson, is expected back at the beginning of next quarter. With the material at hand, and more beginning with the next quar- ter, Mr. Bjorgum sees the prospect of a very fine basketball team.
