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.
Thru a Keyhole 2 BILLINGS, MbNT., SAT., APRIL 28, 1934 SKETCH CLUB BECOMES HOTSY TOTSY Melodrama, Menagerie, Manictire, Mockery to Delight Pedagogues VILLIAN BEATS HIS WIFE Isolated in Basement Local police authorities were summoned to the James L. Hawkes home last Wednesday evening by the frantic neighbors, who, after hearing the wild screams of a wom- an, turned in the police alarm. On Thursday morning the local health officials reported that Mrs. Hawkes would be under quaran- tine for scarlet fever for the next three weeks, and that her husband, an instructor in our institution, would be forced to live in the base- ment during the period of confine- ment. After encountering great opposi- tion and after resorting to bribery the Echo reporter was able to un- cover the true facts in the case. Mr. Hawkes, upon returning home found his wife actually smoking a cigarette. His violent reaction to the situation was the cause of the wild screaming. It is quite true that Mrs. Hawkes is confined to her home, and her husband is forced to live in the basement; but he lives in the base- ment, not to prevent his acquiring her disease, but rather to prevent his enhancing her ailment. The scarlet fever report was released to the local press merely to avoid scandal. Relations in the Hawkes home are a bit strained, for while our instructor paces the basement floor, his wife reclines on her couch above, smoking her cigarette with no fear of another assault. For, you see, (and this is strictly confi- dential) Jimmy is locked in the basement. House of David Sprouts It is impossible to keep real tal- ent hidden! The vigorous man- hood of our institution is beginning to crop out in the form of mous- taches. Have you seen them, girls! Do look closely. They are often hard to find and at times mistaken for just a little grit on the upper lip, but they are there! Real mous- taches. And are they ducky! You know, downy and fuzzy. Of course the reason for this sud- den vegetation is the season. All things start to grow in the spring. Aren't you glad Mother Nature chose to crop out on the upper lip (Continued on Page 4) GOODBYE DEAR CAMPUS, FACULTY, FRIENDS AND WORK Oh, dear me! Here 'tis almost the end of another year of school. Do you know the spring quarter breathes its last on June 8th? What a spectacle flashes before us as we try to sum up our past and take a last look at the venerable walls which served their purpose so ad- mirably. Just look at those verdant freshies, lucky birds, with appar- ently no cares. They still have an- other year. Ah, I fain would come back and drink in the joys which aren't rec- ognized and appreciated until they have past. The faces of friends already start to blur and vanish into the night. No longer will we be able to catch Miss Dewey's melo- dious voice, nor Ridgely's staccato commands. No longer shall we well with \The Value of the Dol- lar\ on passing from Jim Hawkes' class. Charley Dean's firm but pleasing manner, Mary Meek's busy and merry chirping, and Mr. Ab- bott's unsurpassable poise no long- er shall loom before us, to strength- en, to encourage, enrich and round out our plastic and growing minds. Yes, Mr. Shunk will always re- main in the depths of my fond memories. Oscar Bjorgum! Oh dear me, how I'll miss his winning way! Margie Stevenson, too, shall be remembered for a manner which is peculiarly her own. And a feel- ing of pride bursts up to the top as I envisage our friend, Doctor Mc- Mahen, whose advice and sugges- tions only too often have curbed and set my plans aright. Mr. Foote and Miss Rich most certainly deserve a word of praise from all of us; and Miss Nourse, we all like her even though we don't know her so well. The office force too, and dear Uncle George lend a cheery glow to our picture of life. I'll be dream—(voice from dining hall)--tHey, you! How many times do I have to call you? X ° A 4 /7 HOT DAWG!

HD'S SECRET AMBITION The Echo reporter was exceed- ingly surprised to find Dr. Hines in the North Park Wading Pool at 5 a. m. last Sunday morning. The dignified professor was decked in pink pajamas and a football hel- met. He was pushing a rather large wheelbarrow and singing, \T'was Only a Paper Moon.\ When the reporter asked for an explana- tion he confessed that the self-re- straint in which he was forced to indulge that he might maintain his classroom dignity, had been grad- ually weakening for years. He had found it necessary to release these long suppressed desires to raise the devil, so to speak, and he was hoping that after one hour of self expression he would again be able to maintain the poise and dignity of his position. We Mean It ! In spite of the juvenile and idiot- ic conduct of our student body this evening, there is in our institution one organization which has main- tained its dignity and intelligence. Your annual staff in all serious- ness wishes to take this oppor- tunity to make public a reduction in the price of the annual. Of course, those students who have attended school all three quar- ters (fall, winter and spring) will receive an annual free of charge, but for those who have not been SEE DR.
