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.

Although they were not intended as such, the de- bates served as a medium of pub- licity for both schools, and brought out little-known facts about their remarkable progress in the short period since their establishment. When the question was put up for vote, the Senators voted 38-16 against the bill. It would seem CHERNIAVSKY TRIO CHARMS AUDIENCE E. M. N. S. STUDENTS ATTEND CONCERT FEBRUARY 9 One of the rarest musical treats ever to be offered in Billings was greatly enjoyed Thursday evening, February 9th, at the Methodist Church, when E. M. N. S. students joined with other music lovers of the city to hear the renowned Cher- niaysky Trio in a concert, presented under the auspices of the Billings Community Concert Association. The popularity of this famous en- semble was assured as the audi- ence, reluctant to let them go, called them back time after time for encores. These three Russian brothers, Jan, Leo and Mischel Cherniaysky, pianist, violinist, and cellist, first toured their native land 25 years ago, and since that time have been welcomed all over the world for their unique and popular programs. In addition to their perfect ensem- ble harmony, each is an outstand- ing soloist. Their program consisted of a varied and popular combina- tion of solos and ensemble numbers including selections from Mendels- sohn, Bruch, Popper, Chopin, Ach- ron, Paganini-Aver, Rimsky-Korsa- koff and Boisdeffre. Bill By 38-16 Vote DR. BRANNON RESIGNS CHANCELLOR POSITION RESIGNATION IS EFFECTIVE ON JUNE 30 Dr. M. A. Brannon, Chancellor of the Greater University of Montana, has tendered his resignation to Gov- ernor John E. Erickson, to become effective next June 30. Dr. Brannon handed in his resig- nation in the hope that the Chan- cellorship system could be saved for the state of Montana. A bill has just been passed by the legislature which, in effect, abolishes this of- fice, but it is possible that Gov- ernor Erickson will veto it. In his resignation, Dr. Brannon re-asserted his faith in the present system of centralized control of the six units of the University, declar- ing that its abolition would be a definite retreat in educational stand- ards. He went on to say, \Anyone who has invested ten years in a service like this is willing to make any sacrifice to preserve the sys- tem.\ A graduate of Wabash College, Indiana, Dr. Brannon received his degree of Doctor of Philosophy from the UniVersity of Chicago, and Doctor of Law from Whitman College. He organized the School of Medicine at the University of North Dakota and was its dean from 1905 to 1911. From 1911 to 1914 he was dean of the College of Liberal Arts of the same institu- tion. In 1914 Dr. Brannon was made president of the University of Idaho and in 1917 president of Beloit College, Wisconsin. In 1923 he was called to the Chancellorship of the University of Montana, in which capacity he has served until the present time. The seniors of E. M. N. S. are elig- ible for membership in the Montana Education Association. Students may receive membership blanks from Mr. Foote. All seniors should join the M. E. A. as the advantages of membership in this association are numerous. CONTRACTS AWARDED; CLUBS, CLASSES CHOOSE WRITERS With the date for the distribution of the 1933 Rimrock set for May 25, the staff has swung into work on all preparatory phases. All de- partments, business, editorial and art, have decided on the theme \De- pression Versus Progression,\ which will be carried through the entire annual. Since the beginning of the winter quarter several necessary business contracts have been signed. To the Gazette Printing Company went the printing contract, while the Great Falls Engraving Company will do all engraving. In addition to these two, an agreement has been reached with Tippet's Studio which has enabled prospective grad- uates to secure pictures at a min- imum. The business manager of the Rimrock, Joe Weinschrott, and Mr. Stuber, who supervises the bus- iness department, have proposed new and lower advertising rates, which it is hoped will make up the expected \depression\ loss. With originality as the aim of the art department, Howard Wal- ters and Johanna Richter, art edit- ors, have begun work on the end and divison sheets, which will carry forward the theme. Miss Roberts has been supervising this work. Representatives Are Chosen All organizations and classes have now selected representatives who will report their activities. Barbara Biever will represent Ka- toya Players; Marcella Mitchell, Sketch Club; Al Frazier, Trailblaz- ers; Alice Clement, Debate Club; Agnes Stark, Glee Club; Celia Ab- bott, Student Council; Jane Brown, second year class; Elizabeth Peter- son, Al's; Carl Shogren, A2's; Kath- ryn Corwin, Bi's; Wanda Slusher, B2's; Margaret M ammen, Cl's; Dave Duncan, C2's; Veva Harriss, women's athletics; Ardell Kemnitz, men's athletics. NORMAL OFFERS ART AWARD E. M. N. S., through its student council, has offered an award in student art in the normal school section of the fine arts festival. Arrangements for this festival have been made by the Billings Woman's Club. The grand exhibi- tion is set for March 6. Entries in the literature, sculpture, architec- ture and art divisions closed Mon- day night, February 6, according to Mrs. H. C. Hines, art committee chairman. Various prizes in all these fields are offered. The normal school's contribution is $5 in gold, Each day our lives are filled with toils and pleasures At Normal here beside the Rimrock wall, And as we master methods for the future Our annual has a record of them all. Rimrock is the name of our school annual Which brings back golden memories of the past, And when we're hard at work in life's big future Calls back those mental pictures that will last. We like our school, our parties and our plays. In memory we'll take them through life. Rimrock is the symbol of our progress. Our annual shows our victory in the strife. that such a whacking defeat would forever silence those who threaten the existence of the schools. Birthday Present to Prexy ' The action of the Senate came as a pleasant birthday surprise to Dr. McMullen. On January 30 the Ro- tary Club, of which Dr. McMullen is president, complimented him by attaining an attendance of 100 per cent at its weekly luncheon. Dr. and Mrs. Hines' faculty party on January 29 was in honor of Dr. McMullen. He was presented with a dozen golf balls.
