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.

Abbott, roll call chairman for Yellowstone county, announced the plans for conducting the Red Cross membership cam- paign this year. Over 300 students have signified their intention of participating in the campaign, on Tuesday at 4 p. m. an organization meeting was held to issue supplies and formulate plans for the can- vass of the business and residen- tial districts. Work Done By Teams There will be special teams as- signed to the business district. The territory will be divided, and each team is expected to keep within its territory on Wednesday, Thursday and Friday afternoons. On Satur- day all the territory will be open to anyone. For the convenience of the business people booths will be maintained at the Northern and Grand hotels and at the postoffice. Prizes for Winners The work will be carried on by three groups of workers: the Yel- low, headed by Galen Naylor; the Blue, with Horace McBride as cap- tain; and the Stone, captained by Orton Sirrine. Each division is to be divided into teams of two people each. Each division has three prizes well worth winning. Besides this there will be special recognition for the division showing the highest total of memberships. The normal school has offered this service to the community each year since the school began with the exception of 1931, when the relief committee was handled by a committee of citizens. We hope to reach our quota by Saturday night; the Yellowstone county quota is $23,000, of which a considerable sum is to be raised outside, Billings making up the bal- ance.

TAKES PART IN ARMISTICE PROGRAM Yellowstone Post 4 of the Amer- ican Legion sponsored an Armistice program at the Babcock theater Friday morning from eleven until twelve. Commander Peter Yegen, Jr. conducted the ceremony and presented representatives of four great wars. One of the outstanding features of the program was a series of three patriotic tableaus arranged by Miss Martha Dewey. All but one of the characters in these tableaus were students at the normal school, and the costumes were designed and made by the dramatic arts class under the supervision of Miss Dewey. The tableaus were illustrative of three world war songs: Joan of Arc—sung by Miss Mar- garet Reich and posed by Helen Daniels. Goodbye Broadway, Hello France —sung by Larry Peterson and posed by Dolores Bohling as America and Alice Footit as Miss France. The Rose of No Man's Land— sung by Mrs. J. E. Gestring and posed by Ivy Nelson as Red Cross nurse and Howard Walters as the wounded soldier. The Armistice address was deliv- ered by Mr. Fred W. Graff, superin- tendent of schools at Laurel. The program was concluded by the Na- tional Anthem \The Star Spangled Banner,\ sung by the audience. Ask the farmers in Eastern Mon- tana what they think of the Red Cross.
