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 staff is rather pleased by the way the whole affair wound up, for at the beginning of the year financial bar- riers loomed high. However, after carefully scrutinizing last year's annual and noting where possible savings could be made, the staff has found it possible to make ends meet and yet put out an annual which will compare favorably in all respects with last year's edition. The annual is financed from the (Continued on Page 4) PROM TO BE GALA AFFAIR The annual Junior Prom given by the first year class in honor of the graduates of June is to take place tonight at the Coliseum.

The play to be presented is \Dear Bru- tue,\ by J. M. Barrie; the theme of the play is, \What would you do if you had a second chance?\ We find several people invited out to Lob's country home for Mid- summer week, for a peculiar reason which the guests do not know. The plot is based on the English super- stition that on Midsummer night, Puck's wood appears, and those who go out that night get another chance at life, but seldom return. As the play progresses we see the (Continued on Page 4) BANQUET GIVEN TONIGHT The Faculty-Senior Banquet will be held at the Commercial Club to- night, June 1, at 6 o'clock.
