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.

St. Patrick's Day is Featured SEVENTEEN TO RECEIVE DIPLOMAS By Seniors at School Luncheon FRIDAY NOON Something unusual in the history of the Normal School luncheons is to be tried, today at noon. The second year class is sponsoring a Dutch luncheon—minus the beer. Substitutes for the beer are choco- late milk and coffee. The rest of the menu has white and rye bread, cold meats of all kinds, five kinds of cheese, peanut butter, potato chips and apple pies. An outstanding feature of the luncheon is that there will be no waitresses except those who serve the liquids. JACKETS DOWN POLY 43 - 42 NELSON LEADS In the fastest and most exciting game of the Yellowjacket schedule, the boys defeated the Polytechnic team with a score of 43-42 at the l'oly gym, March 3. Both teams were at their best, but the Jackets had a slight edge on their adversaries throughout the game. The lead changed hands a number of times. 'I he final gun revealed that the Yellowjackets had a margin of one point. The same margin defeated the Jackets in their first tussle with the Poly Crusaders, January 10, in which the final score was 60-61. Gallahan and Nelson starred for the Yellowjackets, tossing in bas- kets W11,11 either hand from any part of the floor to furnish the fans with excitement aplenty. Nelson led the Normalites with a total of 17 points, flolowed by Gallahan, who chalked up 12 points. Stevens, Tyler and Owens played their last game for the Yellowjack- ets, Captain Stevens scoring the final and winning basket. Gun Johnson, regular center, was unable to play because of a sprained wrist, which he unfortunately re- ceived in a practice game. E. M. N. S.
