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.

Coach Bjorgum has been working his• squad hard since the first of December to get them in shape for this tilt. The team has begun to show some smoothness, but not nearly as much as Bjorgum hopes for during the regular season. The squad has two advantages over the teams of previous years; all the members have had considerable ex- perience and there are no men laid up by injuries. Hopes are high for giving Dickinson's experienced team a stiff battle. Noteworthy facts are that this is the first game we have ever had with Dickinson, and that this Is the first time we have engaged an out-of-state team. Dickinson Teach- ers come highly touted, with ex- perienced stars who began their playing in Montana high schools. They are making a tour of eastern Montana, playing at Miles City, Glendive, and Billings Polytechnic, besides the game with Oscar's men. The E. M. N. S. lineup will in- clude: Stevens, Tyler, and Carring- ton, guards; C. Nelson, Utterback, Hughes, Ross, Schaff, Caruso, Ful. ton, and Montross, forwards; and Johnson and Bronson. centers. The starting lineup will not be released until tomorrow. E. M. N. S. students will enjoy the last big \feed\ of the quarter at the Christmas luncheon today. This luncheon is being sponsored by the senior class. A Christmas atmosphere will be featured by the table decorations of small Christmas trees. Each person will receive some sort of favor as a Christmas gift. Mr. Bjorgum will introduce the members of the basketball team which will play Dickinson tomor- row. The rest of the program will consist of a vocal number by Vir- ginia. Lofgren, announcements by Dr. McMullen, and a puppet show by several members of the Dramat- ic Art classes. Following the program the elec- tion of the staff for the \Rimrock the school annual will be held.
