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.

Dr. McMullen and Mr. Dean are instructors in a combination course of educational philosophy and meas- urements.

Mr. Hawkes is giving a course on \Current Issues At Home and Abroad.\ This class is held every Wednesday at 7 o'clock. Greater University which made rigid enforcement of attendance at classes on Friday and Satur- day after Thanksgiving. A hasty check of the entire first year class and most of the second year class reveals that one half of the student body is taking advan- tage of the vacation to go to their homes this year. Distance seems to make no difference to those who are going home, for some are going as far west as Missoula and others as far east as Baker. Concert Course Program Announced The Billings Community Concert Association has announced the en- tertainments which will be given during the season. To these enter- tainments students are admitted by presenting activity tickets. One of the outstanding attrac- tions, will be the Monte Carlo Ballet Russe, a troupe of 50 famous Rus- sian dancers, accompanied by a symphony orchestra. This number will be presented at the Babcock theatre, February 5, 1935. Others who will appear here are Rosemarie Brancato, who took Mar- ion Talley's place at the Chicago opera last year and scored a tre- mendous hit, and the Barrere-Sal- zedo-Britt ensemble, a celebrated trio consisting of a flute, harp and cello. The latter group is sched- uled to be in Billings March 29. The date for Miss Brancato's ap- pearance has not been set. DELEGATE ASSEMBLY HERE Billings has been selected as the host for the annual Delegate As- sembly of the M. E. A., which will meet December 27-28-29. The as- sembly is made up of the delegates elected from all the local units of the Montana Education Association. This is the most important educa- tional meeting to be held in the state each year, for it has jurisdic- tion over all the business of the M. E. A. At the same time there will be sessions of the Montana Society for the Study of Education and the State Athletic Association.

Since Saturday she has been in the Dea- coness Hospital, but she expects to return to her apartment before Thanksgiving. E. M. N. S. cagers will have an opportunity to play a regular con- ference schedule this year, Coach Bjorgum announced upon his re- turn from Helena, where he attend- ed a meeting of the athletic coaches of the smaller colleges of the state on November 20. A conference association was or- ganized, composed of School of Mines, Butte; E. M. N. S., Billings; Normal College, Dillon; Northern Montana College, Havre; Inter- mountain Union, Helena; Polytech- nic, Billings. This arrangement is particularly important to the school, because it means that each conference game played will have a direct bearing on our standing in the conference. Our team will play ten conference games, five of which will be at home. Several non - conference games may be scheduled later. Three Letter Men Back The prospect for winning a state title this year is at present not so encouraging, although it is not im- possible. While Coach Bjorgum is not enthusiastic over the prospects, neither is he pessimistic. It is true that the Normal School hasn't as much promising material as it has had in previous seasons, but with a few more men coming in for the winter quarter, among them Harvey McCormick, a last year's player, we ought to have an average team. Three lettermen are back from last year: Clyde Carrington and Dulane Fulton, guards; and Hilton Utterbacx, forward. Some of the first year men that show promise are: Swanson, Chase, Hansen, Dow- ell, Beeler, Selden, and Zepp. The squad is practicing three times a week, but beginning about Decem- ber 1, there will be daily practice.
