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 Students Comment MEMBERS OF FACULTY ENJOY VACATIONS \A Century of Progress Fair\ drew many of our faculty members during their vacation days. Mr. Foote, Miss Dewey, Miss Rich, Miss Meek, Miss Roberts, Mr. Ridgely, Miss Barden and Miss Hurley \did\ the fair and give enthusiastic re- ports concerning it. Misses Rich, Dewey, Roberts, Meek and Barden combined the Chicago trip with visits to relatives in Wisconsin, Illinois, Indiana, and New York City. Some wise members found Mon- tana vacation opportunities emi- nently satisfactory. Dr. McMullen, Mr. Shunk, Mr. Bjorgum, Dr. Hines, Mr. Abbott, Mr. Manion and Mr. Stuber indulged in gardening, fish- ing, and just loafing in the Treas- ure State. Miss Stevenson was scholastical- ly minded. She spent 12 weeks attending the University of Wash- ington at Seattle, but during week- ends she made a survey of Wash- ington's recreational possibilities. Mr. Dean and his family visited in Kansas and Oklahoma, travelling by car about 3,000 miles in 18 days. Mr. and Mrs. Hawkes spent part of the vacation period among relatives in Idaho. ABBOTT JOINS GEOLOGICAL GROUP DURING SUMMER Prof. Abbott had an unusual ex- perience during the vacation period when Dr. Thom, head of the Prince- ton Geological Survey party, with headquarters at Camp Senia, invited him to join the International Geo- logical Congress while that group was touring Montana. Mr. Abbott says he learned the proper manner to use in addressing titled English- men, but he found all the distin- guished scientists very democratic and delightful. PREXY GOES HUNTING FOR BIG GAME IN LITTLE BELTS Dr. McMullen spent the interim between summer school and Octo- ber first in Billings, much of the time being spent in administrative duties. However, when the hubbub of moving tired him too much he retreated for a few days to the soli- tude of his home on Rimrock Road. Last week, after getting the school off to a safe start, he and Mrs. Mc- Mullen and their son-in-law, Mr. A. C. Hoefert had a five-day hunting trip in the Little Belt mountains. Dr. McMullen stated that al- though the weather was rainy and disagreeable their camp was very comfortable. This country, ten miles northwest of Martinsdale, is very beautiful and excellent for hunting. However, there were very few bucks in range and both Dr. McMullen and Mr. Hoefert, a cham- pion rifle shot, returned without a trophy. They went by motor and were gone from Sunday until Wed- nesday, October 18. The worst bankrupt in the world is the man who has lost his en- thusiasm. Let him lose everything else but enthusiasm, and he will come through again to success. on New Systems in Libraries books and authors under this meth- od.—Juanita Davis. I like our own system best. The librarian can find a book more quickly than I can anyhow.—Bill Sirrine. I like the open shelf method with books checked at the door.—Art Guthrie. Our system is 0. K. Time lost at the card catalog is balanced by the saving the librarian gives in find- ing books.—Marcella Our system to date has not ham- pered my study to any extent.— Olive Croy. Check at the door system would be preferable, although our system can easily be tolerated.—Bernice Anderson. In our system I lose some time in securing a book. I prefer check- at-the-door.—Edith Keller. I prefer our system, although my study is hampered somewhat by \closed shelves.\—Edith Maxwell. Prevents loss of time, but causes some waste of time at card catalog. —Helen Balock. \Closed shelves\ are quite an an- noyance when one is not sure of reference wanted.—Maybelle Erick- son. When in a hurry and not sure of the source, I am greatly hampered in my study by the present arrange- ments.—J. W. 'McLean. I much prefer the Public Library system; it is much easier to find the books I want.—Byrl Kelly. For six years the students have had their chance, it is now time the books were given a \break?! Time is not wasted at the card catalog.— Miss Rich, librarian. SENIORS AND FACULTY HAVE ANNUAL PICNIC The senior class, sponsored by Mr. Abbott, entertained the faculty at a picnic held by the Yellowstone river in the private grounds of the Montana Power Company, Friday afternoon, October 13. Art Guthrie, class president, was in charge of arrangements. Everyone gathered at the Admin- istration building and from there proceeded to the picnic grounds. A lighted candle race and a three- legged race were held before re- freshments were served. The win- ners of the two events were award- ed prizes. Later in the evening Jessie and Marea Hodges enter- tained with a comedy tap dance to the tune of the \Good Old Summer Time.\ Mr. Abbott, with the cooperation of several of the boys, built a large tepee fire which was the center of activities. A large number of the faculty and students attended this annual event, the first activity of the senior class. The following committees had charge of the picnic: Place and time, Bill Sirrine, Chuck Robinson, Eva Stewart; transportation, Ortan Sirrine, Ray Stevens, Rosemary Sampsel; refreshments, Jessie Hodges, Jim Cunningham, Helen Murphy; entertainment, Elizabeth Patterson, Jean Todd, Jack Mc- Lean. ATHLETIC OUTLOOK IS OPTIMISTIC FOR THE COMING SEASON FRESHMEN SHOW PROMISE FOR GOOD HOOP TEAM Prospects for a good year in the physical education department are at least up to the average, if not a little brighter than usual. In the regular P. E. classes for men all masculine members of the large first year class are getting their quota of physical exercise twice a week under the able direc- tion of the capable trainer and coach, Mr. Bjorgum. This training consists of gentle warming up ex- ercises, calisthenics, and gymnas- tics. However, there are a few first year men temporarily excused from this class because they are coaching juvenile football teams in the city league. Seniors Take Special Work There also is an advanced phys- ical education class given for sec- ond year students. This class spe- cializes in tumbling and working on the bars. There are men enrolled in it. Both of these classes are furnish- ing good preparation for the com- ing basketball season. Since bas- ketball is the only sport which is recognized in this school, naturally it holds the major interest. Three Lettermen Back There are three lettermen back: Stevens, Tyler and Johnson, and a very imposing array of new ma- terial. This new material contains men for all positions of the team, centers, forwards and guards. It will behoove us all to keep an eye on such newcomers as Utterback of Dawson, Matross of Belfry, Hof- meister of Ingomar, Nelson of For- syth, Bronson of Broadwater, Ca- ruso of Laurel, Witson of Lodge Grass, and Schaff of St. Martin's College. There also may be a few more lettermen back for the winter quarter. It is about time that the devotees of our great American indoor sport were given a break. Who knows? We may have a championship team. KATOYA ELECTS OFFICERS The first meeting of the Katoya Players was held Tuesday night, October 17. A short program was given, after which the following of- ficers were chosen: president, Sally Warner; vice president, Margaret Colness; secretary, Marie Borberg; treasurer, Maybelle Erickson. Re- freshments were served to the 34 people who attended. Semi-Monthly Meetings Held The regular meetings of Katoya are held on the first and third Tues- days of each month in Room 23 of the Ad building. Anyone interest- ed in dramatics is invited to attend the initial meetings. Membership in Katoya Players is gained by successful presentation of a sketch, or a piece of stage setting or some other activity pertaining to a dra- matic presentation. This organization is the oldest in the school, having been started un- der the direction of Miss Martha Dewey in the fall of 1927. This column is not written as a kick but rather as a constructive group of opinions about our new library methods. Throughout we have kept in mind that it is through our own negligence and careless- ness that the shelves have been closed and the system made more difficult for both students and li- brarians. The following statements were given to us by those who have used the library both this year and last. Our library system forces me to frequent the Public Library—Carl Shogren. The check - at - the - door system would be preferable to our system although both are a hindrance.— Ray Stevens. Checking - at - the - door s ys t e m would save time when looking for references from various books.— Leon Nelson. The city library system saves time for both librarian and student in finding the references wanted.— Elizabeth 'Patterson. I like our library system better than the public system, although oftimes the room is too hot for study.—Jim Cunningham. I think the Public Library system saves time in many ways.—Marie Borberg. \Closed shelves\ will overcome the old trouble, and I don't think it will be as unhandy as it first seemed.—Elaine Mikalson. I don't like the new system. I'd rather browse through the books myself.—Maude Kincaid. I prefer the checking-at-the-door method, although we are getting valuable experience in associating SCHOFIELD HAS DINNER FOR E. M. N. S. STUDENTS Thursday evening, October 12, Mr. Ralph Schofield sponsored a \get-acquainted\ dinner for those normal school students who stay at the Schofield apartments. Students who participated were Nellie Crane, Florence Burnette, Freda Caldwell, Irene Deniger, Lil- lian Penner, Geraldine Hurst, Doris Welch, Clara 'Mae Foster, Lorna Harms, Helena Heider, Frances Holmes, Henrietta Lammers, Helen Holt, Edith Steiber, Lillian Butts and Margaret Ames. Nearly all are new students. MR. MANION MARRIED TO ETHEL RANTA AUGUST 15 An event of interest to the stud- ents and faculty of the Eastern Montana Normal School was the marriage of 'Mr. Keith Manion, art instructor and Miss Ethel Ranta of Belt, Montana on August 15, at Great Falls. Mrs. Manion attended E. M. N. S. during the school year 1930-31. The newlyweds will receive their friends at their home at 220 Wyoming Avenue. We wish to con- gratulate Mr. and Mrs. Manion, and wish them great happiness. The folly of fools attracts more attention than the wisdom of the wise.
