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.

4 THE RIMROCK ECHO Attendance Compared Montana's two major institutions of higher learning, the State Uni- versity and the State College, have shown a substantial increase in en- rollment this year. The four small- er institutions have shown a marked decrease in their enrollment. The net enrollment for all the units of the Greater University shows an advance from 3,588 in 1933 to 3,839 for the first month of the current year, an increase of 251 students. The following is a tabulated re- port of the enrollment in all units. School 1933 1934 Gain State University 1,365 1,685 320 State College 950 1,065 115 Loss Normal College 366 333 33 Havre 312 272 40 School of Mines 235 301 34 E. M. N.

A. nursery training school at Bozeman. Rosemary Sampsel, a 1933-34 student, is also attending the school. The students receive one month of training in the technique of a nursery school. They will then be assigned to work in the fifteen nurs- eries which are to be established in the larger towns of the state. (Continued from Page 1) and 22 honey locust. Shrubs re- ceived include 20 staghorn sumach; 3 cutleaf sumach; 1 wigelia; 12 elder berry; 9 waahoo; 15 honey- suckles; 24 lilacs; 36 ash leaf spi- raea; 52 buck thorns and 36 roses of different varieties. Flowers re- ceived consist of 1500 irises of about 45 different varieties; 1000 tulip bulbs; 45 mammoth tiger lily bulbs; 100 native lilies; 85 peony plants; 55 oriental poppies; 15 del- phiniums; 65 shasta daisies; 65 fall asters; and 65 fall daisies. Besides this there are over a thou- sand plants, consisting of Scotch hairbell, achilleas, feverdew, veron- ica, primroses, plantain lilies, sweet rocket, gaillardia, anchusa, a very remarkable collection of violets, sweet sicily, boneset, almost 100 sweet williams, and statice. The Normal School also has 300 blue spruce, 300 Norway spruce, 100 Scotch pine, 175 mogul pine, 225 Douglas fir, and a few lodge- pole pine, all planted this fall. Three hundred elm trees have been growing on the Normal School grounds for the past few years. The new plants and trees are being planted in nursery stock rows. The work is being done by Normal School boys as an F. E. R. A. proj- ect. After the new building is fin- ished the plants and trees will be transplanted to proper places on the campus. Arvilla Terrell is quite a busy person these days. Besides attend- ing Normal School and teaching her own pupils, she is giving piano lessons to Normal School students. She has eighteen beginners. About one-fourth of the people in the U. S. are in school either as pupils or teachers.

Tickets Save Money The Student Activity fee of five dollars is assessed at the beginning of each quarter. The money is put into the student activity fund and is used for financing social and other activities in the school. The following are some of the activities financed by this fund: dances, luncheons, athletic program, Glee Club, lectures, concerts, admission to football games held in the city, and occasional movies. The fund finances the school annual and the Rimrock Echo, and for three years a student loan fund has been main- tained. This method of collecting five dollars each quarter from each indi- vidual makes activities much cheap- er for the students, as entertain- ment can be procured for a much smaller sum when contracted for in large quantities. No student could buy admission to one-half of these activities for the cost of the ticket. He who laughs last seldom gets the point anyway. -:- BITS OF WIT -:- Mr. Shunk (sternly): \When the room settles down I will begin class.\ Becklen: \Why don't you go home and sleep it off?\ Bob Stong: \Do you think kissing is unhealthy?\ June Knapp: \I couldn't say.

It is very fortunate for Mr. Hawkes that they were black widow spiders. Mr. Stuber, acting for the Bil- lings Kiwanis Club, is anxious to contact all sons, daughters, wives, brothers and sisters of Kiwanians from other clubs. If you have such a connection, please see Mr. Stuber at once. ❑ LI Directory of 1933-34 Graduates
