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.

During the past six weeks the annual staff has been busy with preliminary business. Contracts with the printing and engraving companies have been signed, and a color scheme has been determined. The increase in the cost of ma- terial and printing has made strict economy imperative. A cover sim- ilar to that of last year's annual will be used. At the recommendation of Miss Roberts, Sybil Christiani was ap- pointed to succeed Nova Perry as editor. 1VIiiss Christiani is a first- year student whose originality has impressed fellow students and fac- ulty members. Elizabeth Patterson was elected secretary of the staff. Plans for having the pictures taken have been arranged. Prac- tically all of the group pictures are finished and the individual pictures of the seniors are rapidly being completed. Annual staff representatives from all of the school organizations have been chosen. They are as follows: second year class, Katherine Alt; first year class, Amelia Marien- kowski; Sketch Club, Dorothy Mc- Donald; Glee Club, Ardith Palmer- lee; Katoya, Marie Borberg. Faculty Goes Chinese Speaking of parties the faculty men surely exercised their ingenu- ity at a dinner Friday, February 2. This party was in the nature of a belated return date for a dinner given by the faculty women two years ago. Dinner was served at six o'clock on a long table set up in Miss Dewey's room. The chief dish was chow mein and rice. Chow mein is one of Dr. McMullen's favorite dishes, his standing order at Times Square restaurant in New York % Northern Montana School—Feb! ruary 17.

Information concerning the program has not been released because St. Valen- tine is out of town and t'he faculty member seems a little sensitive about his age. No doubt both hon- ored guests will be featured. Bountiful Eats A delicious menu has been planned — meat or salmon loaf, baked potatoes, buttered beets, cornbread and honey, apples and bananas, Washington pie, and cof- fee or chocolate milk. Committees In Charge The committee in charge are un- der the direction of the standing faculty luncheon committee. Stu- dent chairmen are: program, Emma Chupp; kitchen, Erret Moyer; serving, Doris Lease; decoration, Olive Lindland; clean-up, Rosaling Richter; knockdown, Wm. F. Beck- len, Jr. Cupid, through the nimble hands of Miss Roberts, will do wonders with the decorations. Doesn't this sound great? We hope the guests of honor will enjoy , the luncheon as much as we all. M'MULLEN ATTENDS EXECUTIVE COUNCIL Dr. and Mrs. McMullen motored to Helena Tuesday when Dr. Mc- Mullen attended a meeting of the executive council for the Greater University of Montana, held on Thursday. They returned Friday morning. The members of this council are the presidents of the six units of the university. The chairman is H. H. Swain, executive secretary of the State Board of Education. Provides for Student Aid The council discussed many prob- lems concerning the university units. They learned that the fol- lowing grants under the P. W. A. have been authorized: the Stu- dents' Union Building at Missoula and residence halls at the School of Mines at Butte, and at the State College at Bozeman. T. C. Spaulding, state director for relief, described the new activity of the F. E. R. A., which is to help students to remain in any one of the six units or to enter any one of these.

The game between the Panthers and Yellowjackets, February 8, was very exciting. The Yellow - jackets outplayed their opponents but were unable to find the basket to keep pace with the scoring streak of Brandjord, Inter- mountain forward, who hooped in 22 points for the Panthers. The score at the half was 20-13 in favor of Intermountain. The second half found Stevens and Ow- ens doing a large share of the scor- ing for the Yellowjackets while Bostic and Brandjord starred for the Panthers. The final score was 45-33 in favor of Intermountain. Intermountain meets the Yellow- jackets here February 23. An ex- citing tussle is promised, as the Yellowjackets are determined to win the rest of their home games. A PLEA FROM THE ANNUAL STAFF What does your annual mean to you? Perhaps, at present not 1 much, but in later years you will turn to your annual to relive your 1 good times at E. M. N. S. 1 An annual is primarily a picture book—pictures of you, of your friends, of your teachers, and of your activities. Above all else, an 1 annual is a cross-section of student life. For this reason the annual staff makes a plea to you, \Give us student life pictures—group pic- tures and individual pictures, funny pictures and serious pictures.\ j Since few of us have the rare ability to laugh at ourselves, we • often hesitate to hand in personal pictures; but we can all laugh at the other fellow, so why not give the staff pictures of your friends? • Take pictures and give them to the annual staff. See how many absurd pictures of your friends you can collect. The best annual staff in the world could not put out an annual I without cooperation from the student body. We do not profess to be even a good annual staff, but we do want your help, for, after all, it is to be YOUR annual. City. The affair was distinctly oriental in spite of Mr. Bjorgum's head gear being more reminiscent of Rudolf Valentino than of a Chi- naman.
