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.

VII BILLINGS, MONTANA, THURSDAY, JAN. 23, 1936 NO. 3 STUDENTS HEAR VISITORS TODAY AND FRIDAY Yellow Jackets Open New Gym With Victory Over Poly Hoop Team Lose to Carroll Team By One Point In Hard Fought Battle The Yellowjackets started their 1936 basketball season with a 28 to 27 win over their traditional rivals, the Poly. It was a hard fought battle throughout. At half time the Yellowjackets led 19-14. Working a new style of zone de- fense, the Yellowjackets were able to stop the Poly time and again. Credit goes not only to Bob Zepp, who was the highlight of the eve- ning with his uncanny ability for finding the hoop, but also to Elliott and Scully, who did a great bit of guarding in the back court. Handle Ball Skillfully Probably the most outstanding feature of the game was the ball handling by the Yellowjackets. Working as a unit all the time, they kept the ball \hot.\ The Poly threw their defense around the foul circle. With orders from Coach Bjorgum, the boys shot from outside the Poly defense. In the second half when the Poly came out to break up the long shots, the Yellowjackets went in for close-up shots under the basket. Lineups for the teams were as follows — Normal: Zepp, Johnson, Dowell, Gonzales, forwards; Elliott, Scully, Matross, guards; Chase, Sirrine, center. Poly: Brown, Mah- ler, Kangas, forwards; Koyker, Magness, center; 'Mahler, Wilson, Mahler, guards. 4 Lose to Carroll in Hard Fought Game Winning their first game of the season, Carroll College defeated the Eastern Montana Normal School's basketball team Friday night, 29-25. The Yellowjackets possesed none of the fight they displayed against the Polytechnic last week. Getting off to a poor start they were un- able to overcome Carroll's lead until several minutes after the sec- ond half had begun. Earls, rangy Carroll center, found the hoop frequently and led the scoring with six field goals. Matching basket for basket the teams were tied at 25-25 with two and one-half minutes to go when Earls and Bartholomew scored the winning goals. The lineup was as follows: Bartholomew, F Johnson, F Copenhaver, F Gonzales, F Conn, F Zepp, F Earls, C Dowell, F McGonigle, G Sirrine, C Riley, G Chase, C Baker, G Scully, G Elliott, G DIVISIONAL HOOP MEET WILL COME TO E.

The \A\ division will finish observation on Friday and begin classes on Saturday, Feb- ruary 1. SCARLET FEVER SCARE LETS US OFF EASY E. M. N. S. has been particu- larly fortunate in the recent scarlet fever epidemic in Billings. Up to the present time there have been only three cases among our stu- dents and the outlook for the future is encouraging, since local health officers report that the epidemic is now on the wane. Miss Stevenson, dean of women, states that she is most gratified by this apparent in- dication of the excellent physical condition of the members of the student body. She recommends, however, that the students use ade- quate disinfectant gargles, and that they carefully avoid associating with any one having a cold or a sore throat. Admit Slips Needed For the protection of the stu- dents, Dr. McMullen has issued a bulletin stating that all students who have been absent are to report to Miss Stevenson's office upon their return, and obtain from her a written \admit\ to classes. The only cases of scarlet fever among students at present are Karna Miller, who is at her home in Columbus, Doris Dexter, and Ruth Thompson. Evenden Speaks Today; New Head of University Friday Afternoon Today at 4:15 in the auditorium, M. S. N. S. students and faculty members will have the good fortune to see and hear Dr. Samuel L. Even- den of the teacher training depart- ment in Teachers College, Colum- bia, in New York City. While in the city the Evendens will be guests of Dr. and Mrs. Mc- Mullen. At a luncheon today at Miss Wood's Tea Room, they will meet the members of the faculty, after which Dr. Evenden will ob- serve the plan of student observa- tion and participation as carried out in cooperation with the Billings public schools. Billings teachers and others in- terested in education are invited to attend the lecture. Simmons Will Give Talk On Travels On Friday at 4:15, Pres. George F. Simmons, who is in the city to attend a dinner given for him by the Billings alumni of the univer- sity and to speak at a guest lunch- eon of the Lions Club, will speak to our student body on the subject of his European travels. He was recently appointed as president of the State University to succeed Dr. Clapp, who died last spring. Dr. McMullen with Evenden in N. Y. Dr. Evenden is a personal friend of Dr. McMullen, who acted as visit- ing professor in the teacher train- ing department at Teachers College in 1924-25 while completing work for his doctorate. Mrs. Evenden and the daughter, Miss Louise Ann, are accompanying Dr. Evenden, who is beginning eight months leave of absence from his duties in Teach- ers College. They will spend the vacation in the west, chiefly Wash- ington and California, but Dr. Even- den will have frequent speaking engagements. He is scheduled to speak at the Teachers College in La Grande, Oregon next Monday. EXTENSION WORK CLOSES This week marks the closing of the first semester extension classes offered by Mr. Hawkes, Miss Dewey, Mr. Bjorgum, Miss Stevenson and Dr. Hines.
