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.

A. GYMNASIUM Farewell Program The first all school luncheon of the season was sponsored by the Katoya Players in the gym on Oc- tober 16. About 350 students and faculty members were present.

Dewey Sketches History Miss Dewey, as sponsor of the Katoya Players, began the program with a short resume of the history of the luncheons and an explana- tion of the word Katoya. She em- phasized the appropriateness of the color scheme, green and brown in relation to the color of the sweet pine, called by the Indians Katoya. Baskets of pine branches and cones were placed on the center of each table. Helder Wrote Skit for Farewell Program The program was the story of the march of the chosen people from the house of bondage to the Promised Land, typifying the de- parture of the Normal School per- sonnel from the Y. M. C. A. to the new building. Ann Helder, chair- man, was the author of the skit and the Song of Deliverance. Par- ticipants in the program were Ann Helder, a prophet; Sig Seldon, Ja- cob; Helen Harmond, Esther; Lor- etta Waddell, a prophetess; Sam Panos, Ephraim; Jane Maxon, Joshua the trumpeter, and Bill Nelson was David. At the close of the program all joined in singing a song of delivT erance to the tune of \There's a Tavern in the Town.\ On November 1, the schools throughout the nation will pay trib- ute to the memory of Mark Twain, who was born just a century ago: He remains to this day one of thd most popular of American authors. \Thinking is the hardest work there is, which is probably the reap son why so few engage in ft.\— Henry Ford.

Students occasionally have need to call faculty members at their homes, especially the president and the registrar. Yet it cannot be denied that they often ask questions over the telephone which can be answered by reference to the bulletin boards. It is suggested that those students ask themselves this question before dialing faculty telephone numbers: \Is it absolutely necessary that I make this call.\ If they can answer \Yes the call is entirely permissible. Otherwise—well, you answer.

N. S. grounds north of the city. The extension of a road at the end of Thirtieth street will lead across a concrete bridge to the front of the building and swing about either end to a parking space in the rear. If weather permits, the ground will be put into shape this fall ready for planting in the spring. Gym Located At Rear The central corridor leads direct- ly through the main building into the gymnasium at the rear, where 470 permanent seats in the balcony will accommodate the student body for all regular meetings. The floor of the gymnasium can be trans- formed by means of chairs into an auditorium to seat about 1500 peo- ple, with a large stage, 50 feet wide by 28 feet deep, at the north end. Very Modern Lighting The rear of the stage is curved so that the sound can be more easily reflected. Besides the usual border and foot lights there are six baby spotlights in the ceiling and six additional ones at the sides. The entire plan of lighting was sug- gested by Professor Turch of the Dramatic department at Northwest- ern University, under whom Miss Dewey took work in the summer of 1934. Back of the stage are the dra- matic art class rooms and labora- tories, and under the stage are eight small dressing rooms, which can be utilized for piano practice rooms. At the front of the gymnasium under the balcony are shower rooms for men and women and the offices of - the physical education classes. Offices, Classes, Library In Main Building The first floor of the main build- ing will house the administrative offices, the education department, and English; on the second floor the entire south side is given over to the large reading room, librari- an's office, stacks and the museum. At the rear are the social science class rooms and offices. The sci- ence, art and music class rooms will be located on the third floor. The fourth floor tower room will be used for orchestra practice pur- poses; the top floor of the tower is as yet unassigned. On the roof outside the fourth floor there will be an observatory platform and a green house. In the basement, besides large store rooms, there is to be a kitch- en and cafeteria, and two large (Continued on Col. 2, Page 4)
