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.

BILLINGS, MONTANA, MONDAY, OCT. 24, 1932 NO. 1 GM'S MAKE A LEAP Al HARD-TIME PARTY OL' MAN DEPRESSION TRIPS THE LIGHT FANTASTIC\ The boys enjoyed a few lucky breaks but the girls really did the leaping at the Hard Time Party sponsored by the second year class at the Coliseum last Friday eve- ning from 9 until 12. To the strains of \Turkey in the Straw\ the hilar- ious students promenaded with their favc 'ite boy friends before the august and experienced cos- tume committee consisting of Miss Rich, M Manion and Miss Barden. Student Committee At Door As an innocent window peeper viewed these subjects he wondered who had allowed such a collection to enter the door. But his ques- tions were soon answered, for he discovered our door committee John Peterson, Louise Solem and How- ard Walters assisted by Dr. Hines and the faculty Social Committee. German Bartenders Active Back in one corner of the room ne saw two German bartenders very carefully apportioning apple cider alA doughnuts. Was there evil in the midst of this atmos- phere of higher learning? No, for under cover of these misleading costumes, back in their own private skins, resided Mr. Manion and Mr. Shunk. Program a Success Bustling about to provide enter- tainment was Grace Hoagland, chairman of the entertainment com- mittee, and by her side anxiously waiting ,o perform a harmonious piano duet were Messrs. Leon Nel- son and Rayniond Stevens. Their performance was greeted with deaf- ening applause and they responded eagerly with encores. Management of the wraps was taken care of by Genevieve Gregor- son, Grace Cain, Eleanor Barker and Bess Deeney. The Coliseum orchestra kept the spirits of ti• party high, and th e only murmurs of discontent were from the overpopular boys, who sighed, \Oh my feet are tired.\ No wonder the girls were hilari- (Continued on Page 3) PLACEMENT DEP'T HAS CR \TIFYING RECORD Out of 1.39 students who were graduated from E. M. N. S. in Decem- ber 1931, March, June and August 1932, all but 19 students are teaching this year, according to Mr. Foote of the placem committee. Four of these studeats, namely, Char- lotte Lemmer, Gene Ernster, Thom- as Purcell, and illiam Penttila, are attending sc 1, while a num- ber of the other do not wish to teach. This is indeed a gratifying record, for It shows up favorably with the placement figures of pre- vious years. Members of Faculty Address M.E.A. Group At the eastern division of the M. E. A., which will be held ni Billings on October 27, 28 and 29, many fac- ulty members will appear on the program. Those who are on the program from E. M. N.

Sponsors Radio Rural School Program Starting the twenty-fourth of this month, station KGHL is to be turn- ed into a school room every school morning from 9 o'clock until 9:15 as the Eastern Montana Normal School broadcasts its \Morning Ex- ercise Program for Rural Schools.\ The program, which deals with the history and geography of Montana put in dramatic form, is under the direction of a committee composed of Charles Dean, chairman, Mr. Ab- bott, Miss Dewey and Miss Mary Barden. History Is Dramatized As the program opens, Mr. Dean, as a country school teacher, is starting his day's work. The chil- dren come in, take their seats, and start asking questions. As one ques- tion leads to another the teacher is finally led into telling a story. MT. Dean starts telling his story. His voice gradually dies away, and we hear other voices in the dis- tance, dramatizing the story of the Old West. Committee In Charge Miss Dewey has charge of the dramatization, Miss Barden fur- nishes the music, and Mr. Abbott (Continued on Page 3) before the primary section on \Art in the Primary Grades.\ Miss Mary Meek is going to Mis- soula to have charge of the E. M. N. S. Alumni \Get-Together.\ The bulletin boards will tell you what you want to know. Try read- ing them instead of asking need- less questions. REGISTRATION FIGURES INCREASE 10 PERCENT REGISTRAR REPORTS 47 MEN, 309 WOMEN, OCTOBER 18 With official pronouncement that its enrollment for the fall quarter is 356, Eastern Montana Normal School enters its sixth year with a 10 per cent increase over last year at this time and an increase of 140 per cent over its first year. Ac- cording to figures released October 19 by Mr. Stuber, Registrar, 302 women and 40 men were enrolled October 1 and since that time 14 additional registrations have been made. Stuber Reviews Numbers \This is the largest enrollment on record, outside of the summer session,\ Mr. Stuber points out. The summer session of 1931 drew 409, while the past summer session drew 407 students. The large attendance is in line with increased enrollment at all units of the Greater University. Eastern Montana Normal School, which opened in 1927 with an en- rollment of 140 women and nine men, drew 245 pupils in the fall of 1928, 230 in 1929, 244 in 1930 and 323 last year. Except for a slight relapse in 1929, the school has con- sistently drawn greater numbers of students. Attendance Since 1927 The following table, showing to- tal number of students in attend. ance during the five years of the school's existence is of interest. September 1927 to August 1932: Graduates 486 Extension Students 344 Other Former Students 1320 Total 2150 Miles City Regional Summer School 287 SENIORS AND FACULTY PICNIC WITH SUCCESS The annual Senior-Faculty Picnic materialized in all its splendor last Friday evening, October 14, at the Montana Power grounds along the Yellowstone. Despite the fact that Mr. Weather blustered about, show- ered leaves over the table, and made fires blaze out and burn hot dogs, the picnic was a rollicking success. Many grave seniors for- got their dignity and reverted to acts of childhood by playing leap- frog and pomp-pomp-pull-away. The table was arranged in a very systematic style so that the custom. ary \grub line\ could race around it in a clock-wise fashion with very little interference except when some pigeon-toed individual en- countered the coffee pot or became entangled in a ring of the sparkling white onion.
