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 RIMROCK ECHO 3 PROSPECTS BRIGHT FOR LARGE SUMMER SCHOOL The summer session of the Nor- mal School will open June 13 and continue until August 12. Prac- tically all the courses listed in the catalogue will be offered. The regular faculty, with the ex- ception of Miss Roberts, who has again been asked to attend the Art School at the University of Oregon with funds supplied by the Carne- gie foundation, will be in charge of the various departments. In addition there will be sev- eral instructors. These include L. A. Adams, professor of verte- brate anatomy at the University of Illinois, who will offer several new courses in biology; Superintendent A. T. Peterson of Billings; and Superintendent Gullidge of Baker. Those in charge of the training school will be Mr. Kaser, of the Billings high school faculty, upper grades; Miss Laustad, Principal of the Garfield, third and fourth grades; Miss Sorenson, of Livings- ton, fifth and sixth grades; and Miss Augusta Pragst, supervisor of the primary department of the State Teachers College at Belling- ham, Washington, primary grades. Many Lectures Slated The course entitled Education 100 will be offered with some very fine attractions. Dr. Ned Dearborn, Professor of Education at New York University, and former class- mate of Dr. McMullen, will appear on the night of June 14. Other attractions are L. A. Tallcott, read- er; John Lomax, who will offer cowboy songs; Paul Fleming, magi- cian; and Miss Carlson, Girl Scout Secretary. Summer school will also be con- ducted at Miles City under the jurisdiction of the Eastern Mon- tana Normal School. R. A. Wollin, Principal of the Custer County High School, will again be director of this unit. It is expected that all previous attendance records will be exceed- ed, because of the recent ruling that no one shall teach in Montana schools who has not attended a Montana educational institution for at least nine weeks. DELTA PSI OMEGA INITIATES On Saturday evening, April 23, three candidates for Cast 21 of Delta Psi Omega, National Honor- ary Fraternity, were initiated at the home of Miss Martha E. Dewey. Those who received membership were: DeLorman Burk, Tom Kelly and Jim O'Connor. Besides the hostess, Miss Dewey, there were a number of active members of the cast present. They were: Lawrence Aber of Washoe, Dean Aldrich, William Calder, Rob- ert Gail, Cary Alice Sanderson and Melba Webster, students at E. M. N. S. Following the initiation a busi- ness meeting was held, at which it was decided that there would be a Delta Psi Omega luncheon at some time during the last two weeks of this quarter. There will also be another initiation held during com- mencement week. After all business was transacted, a delightful luncheon was served by the new members as the final stage of their initiation. Newspaper Contest Winners Named The winners in the rural school newspaper contest sponsored by Miss Meek were Prospect Echo, published by pupils of Miss Alice Lumley, and Sunnysisde Up, pub- lished by pupils of Mrs. Lillian Mor- gan. The judges were Miss Eliza- beth Cooke, Laurence Aber and Mr. Dean. In as much as each paper represented a different plan of pro- cedure and both were exceedingly well done, the judges recommended a division of the ten dollar award. Prospect Echo was given first place with a prize of six dollars and Sunnyside Up was given second place with a prize of four dollars. Prospect Echo is a weekly publi- cation, appearing on a page of the Bridger Times, but the children write the news, and .the editorial staff arranges it and reads proof. Sunnyside Up is a mimeographed paper of four pages, issued semi- monthly, the entire writing and compiling being done by pupils of the upper grades. Both papers rep- resent a most commendable ac- tivity. The 19 issues of Prospect Echo and seven issues of Sunnyside Up demonstrated the use of the news- paper as a motivating force in the composition work of the school. CLASS MAKES NAME STUDY Do you know how your home town was named ? Mr. AbfrItt and the Montana-His- tory class are making a collection of the history of the place names in Montana. The list now contains about 1000 names of towns, streams, mountains, and other names in Montana. What have you to offer to help in this study of place names? Leave your information with Mr. Abbott or some member of the Mon- tana History class. It is hoped that the list will number 2,000 or more at the end of the spring quarters. STUDENTS VISIT DAIRY On Tuesday afternoon, April 19, the two sections of Mr. Shunk's bacteriology class made a tour of inspection at the Nye Dairy on the Polytechnic Drive for the purpose of observing the process used in the pasteurization of milk. The students were conveyed to and from by truck, automobile and one motorcycle. The trip proved very interesting. The students were shown the machine with which the bottles are cleaned and sterilized; the various steps and the machines used in pasteurization; the refrig , erating plant; and the bottle filler and capper. To finish the day right, the man in charge treated everyone, present to a bottle of chocolate milk. MISS ROBERTS SPEAKS Miss Hermine Roberts will give a talk on the lives, work and charac- teristics of the English artists, Turner, Constable, Crowe, Wilson, Gainsborough, Hogarth, and Rey- nolds at a combined meeting of the. Delta and Rimrock chapters of the Delphian Society, Friday evening, April 2'9, at the home of Mrs. Ray, Hart. DEBATE SEASON ENDED WON FOUR OF SIX DEBATES The last debate of the season, with Montana State College, was held Thursday night, April 14, at the High School auditorium. T h e Bozeman representatives, Sam Eagle and Dean Stebbins, de- fended the negative side of the question, \Resolved that Congress should enact legislation providing for centralized control of industry,\ and won a two-to-one decision over the E. M. N. S. affirmative team, composed of George Sanderson and Dean Aldrich. In order to insure a good audi- ence Dr. McMullen called an all- school assembly for the occasion, and the students were most appre- ciative of the excellent work of both teams. Dr. McMullen presided and Miss Meek served as time keeper. The judges were W. J. Jameson, Jr., the Rev. F. R. Witmer, and W. E. Grif- fin. Season Has Been Successful It has been a very successful debate season for E. M. N. S. The negative team, composed of Cleo Gorley and Alice Clement, lost to Intermountain Union College, but won from Billings Polytechnic and Montana State Normal College. The affirmative team, composed of George Sanderson and Dean Ald- rich, won from Billings Polytechnic, and the Butte School of Mines, and lost to Montana State College. \This question has involved an enormous amount of work, but the four students who went out for de- bate have not only learned about vital questions but have also gained a very valuable experience in speak- ing in public and learning to think on their feet,\ says Prof. Hawkes, debate coach. HOW DO WE DO IT? This year a new policy was adopted in regard to school lunch- eons. Formerly the luncheons were held weekly at the Commercial Club at a cost of 35 cents per person. The Student Council has taken over the responsibility of giving the luncheons, paying for them out of the Student Activity fund. They have already sponsored four lunch- eons this year. Approximately 32'5 persons were in attendance each time with an average cost of 34 1 /2 cents per capita. At each an abundance of appe- tizing food was served. When let- uce was served 96 heads were used, three one-hundred-pound sacks of potatoes were baked and 25 pounds of butter consumed; at each lunch- eon 50 dozen rolls were the average order. Fifty-five pies were used on one occasion. At the second lunch- eon 200 pounds of turkey were eaten; at the last luncheon 125 pounds of meat loaf were served. Nine or ten pounds of coffee were used each time. The problem of possible waste involved by the luncheons was ade- quately taken care of; whatever surplus remained from each meal was appreciatively accepted by the Salvation Army. If you can laugh at yourself there's hope. Don't worry—try thinking. JOKES Bob Gail: That driver ahead must be Miss Meek. Mr. Manion: Why? Bob: She seems to be so reluc- tant about letting me pass. \Castle Sandwich Shop\ — Ben Nutt, Prop. \Our hash is made; not accumulated?' Miss Meek at the luncheon—\If we could all do as we please, who would wash the dishes?\ Mr. Shunk: Can you tell me what a geological survey is? Dean Aldrich: Yes, that's what is commonly known as the stony stare. Miss Dewey: Have you ever read \To a Mouse\? Cary Alice Sanderson: How do you make him listen? r. — De^: - au---Thefus=S--a — raI€Mat. outside with a mustache. Mr. Foote: Tell him I have a mustache. Mr. Shunk: \What is an ice- berg?\ Geology Student: \It is a sort of a permanent wave.\ It's nothing much to think of— But every now and then, I wonder where Mr. Ghandi Carries his fountain pen. The following telegraphic corre- spondence recently took place be- tween Oliver Rock and his father: Dear Dad: No mun No fun Your son. And the reply was: Dear Lad: It's sad Too bad Your dad. Klampe: May I hold your hand? Charlotte Lemmer: It isn't heavy; I can manage, thank you. She was just temperamental- 90% temper and 10% mental. Arise with the lark, but avoid larks in the evening. Mr. Shunk: Give me an example of a paradox. Ed Schendel: A man walking a mile and only moving two feet. I eat my peas with honey, I've done that all my life, Though it makes the peas taste funny, It helps to keep them on my knife.
