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 Eaftern Montana Normal School VOL. IV BILLINGS, MONTANA, FRIDAY, JANUARY 27 — //33 NO. 4 YELLOWJACKETS SWARM AND BULLDOGS SLINK AWAY NURSING STINGS EILLON NORMAL DEFEATED FOR FIRST TIME; SCORE 44-41 With two games of the present basketball season already played, Eastern Montana Normal School's Yellowjackets will begin their first tour of Montana February 6 with a conference percentage of .500. The first conference game the Yellow- jackets won 44-41, defeating the traditional rival, Dillon, after the Dillon men had defeated Polytech- nic. Then the two Billings teams met with the score 19-19 at the half, but a Polytechnic victory 41-35 at the end. E. M. N. S. 44; D:Ilon 41 The Yellow-Jackets swarmed out of their corner here Saturday night, January 14, stinging the somewhat bewildered and hitherto uncon- quered Bulldogs to a 44-41 victory in favor of Eastern Montana Nor- mal School. The game started with a hang! The Yellow-Jackets took the lead from the beginning and held it to the finish, while the Dillon quintet made valiant attempts to uphold their unquestionable reputation. The snarling Bulldogs were a good match for the irate Yellow-Jackets, and it was only through accurate shooting, good team work and ag- gressive playing that the Billings teamsters were able to wrest the victory from their western cousins. It was a fast game from the be- ginning, the first half ending with a score of 31-22 in favor of Billings. It was not until the beginning of the second half when Swanson went out on fouls that the Dillon Normal began its rally, piling up the points to tie the score of 41-41 with Billings. Larson, however, came to the rescue of his corn- • rades six minutes before the end of the game, making a long shot and scoring two points for E. M. N. S. Galahan went out on fouls in the second quarter after having piled up a total of 19 points for Billings.
