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.

In the first place ours is the only institution of higher learning in southeastern Montana. We feel that it is our duty to help with all school projects in this area. In the second place our gymnasium offers an excellent floor, well lighted and capable of seating a large audience. In the third place the whole philosophy of our insti- tution is the enrichment of the life of the people in our territory. Un- doubtedly contests of the kind that we are having this week have great influence in the building of character, in the promotion of cooperation, and in broadening the views of the contestants. For all of these reasons we are happy to be the host for this tournament, to do everything in our power to make it a success, and to assure visiting teams, coaches, prin- cipals, and rooters that they are cordially welcomed to our campus. L. B. McMULLEN. THE RIMROCK ECHO Ea fern Montana Normal School VOL. VII BILLINGS, MONTANA, WEDNESDAY, MARCH 4, 1936 NO. 4 SOUTHERN DIVISION TOURNAMENT WILL BE PLAYED HERE Utica Jubilee Singers Scheduled for Sunday Afternoon Performance SINGERS VISITED IN 21 DIFFERENT COUNTRIES The Utica Jubilee Singers, who were featured on the N. B. C. net- work from New York, are scheduled on the Normal School entertainment program for next Sunday afternoon, March 8, at three o'clock. This group, composed of five men singers and the accompanist, recent- ly returned from a tour of Europe. They had planned a tour of one year, but they were so favorably received that they continued for six additional months. During this time they visited twenty-one countries. Although their audiences could not understand the words of the songs, they could understand the message through the personalities of the singers; through the harmony; and through the rhythm. The song which was favored most was Fos- ter's \Swanee River.\ Marian Foster Welch, (Stephen Foster's daughter), said, when she appeared on one of the radio pro- grams as a guest of the Jubilee Singers, \You sing my father's songs more beautifully than I have ever heard them sung.\ The Jubilee Singers have achieved fame as exponents of spirituals, be- cause of their reluctance to de- vitalize them by \dressing them up.\ They are entirely engrossed in their songs; the rhythm of their music often expresses itself unconsciously in the movements of their bodies. Their emphasis is placed on the message rather than the technique, although that is faultless. The program for Sunday after- noon follows: Ensemble— Ezekiel Saw the Wheel. Couldn't Hear Nobody Pray. Do You Call That Religion? Nobody Knows the Trouble I've Seen. Reading Clarence Ratliffe Tenor Solo Luther Hartly Ensemble— Mighty Lak a Rose. Shortnin' Bread. Watermelon. Old Black Joe. Intermission Baritone Solo George Rayston Ensemble— Wagon Wheels. Kentucky Babe. Medley of Southern Songs. Goin' Home. Norma Lynch-Cole Accompanist MARCH GRADUATES WILL BE GUESTS OF FACULTY Honoring the March graduates, 10 in number, the traditional quarterly Faculty-Senior dinner will be held at the Billings Commercial Club at 6:30 on the evening of Friday, March 13. Those in attendance will be the graduating group, members of the (Continued on Page 7) Dedication In April; State Board Here The date of the dedication of the E. M. S. N. S. building will be about the 13th of April. It will coincide with the State Board meeting, the date for which has not been defi- nitely determined. Gov . Holt will speak and there will be brief talks by other friends of the school. There will be an open house for all on the afternoon of the dedica- tion. All of the equipment that is to be purchased will be set up at that time, and visitors will be conducted over the building by the student committees. The music for the program con- sists of a chorus of townspeople and the glee club, accompanied by an orchestra of about 100 pieces. The first rehearsal for the pro- gram was held Sunday, March 1, under the direction of Mr. Ridgely. There were about 86 orchestra and 95 chorus members present.

PLAYERS, COACHES WILL BE HERE TONIGHT The Southern Division High School Basketball Tournament, which be- gins at the E. M. N. S. gymnasium tonight, will bring about 200 players and their coaches to the city. The teams which will contest in the Class A group are from Anaconda, Billings, Miles City, Glendive, Boze- man, Livingston, Butte, and Butte Central. In the Class B group the teams contesting will be from Big Timber, Dillon, Red Lodge, Phillips- burg, Thompson Falls, Roundup, Forsyth, and Baker. The games are played according to a double elimination plan, the first round will continue through the first four Class A and Class B games. Games 5, 6, 10 and 11, con- solation games for the losers in the first round, will begin Thursday night and continue through Friday afternoon. Semi-finals in both classes will be played off Friday night and Saturday morning. The big thrill of the tournament will be furnished Saturday night, when three cham- pionship games will be played to decide the teams which will repre- sent the Southern Division at the state meet in Havre, late in March. Fred Daylis and L. T. Pearson of Billings High School will be of- ficial scorers, and Herbert Klindt of the Poly will be timekeeper. These men will be assisted by Paul Bus- singer and Jean Carroll. Ed Grem- mer, Bob Zepp, Jack Scully and Bus Elliott will be in charge of the lockers. Council Buys Tickets Season tickets sell for $3.00 and the single admissions for Saturday night are $1.00. Students are lucky to have their admissions cared for by a block of seats purchased by the student council. The bleachers on the stage and others around the sides of the gym make the seating capacity about 1500. It is expected that the final game will tax that capacity. DR. McMULLEN RETURNS FROM MID-WINTER N. E. A. Dr. McMullen, who recently re- turned from the mid-winter session of the National Education Associa- tion, reports that he started pro- ceedings with the Secretary of the American Association of Teachers Colleges for application of member- ship of the E. M. S. N. S. in that body. Dr. McMullen attended the meet- ing of the Department of Superin- tendence. He estimated that between fifteen and twenty thousand dele- gates attended the meetings. Highlights of the convention were: the speech of Dr. Glenn Frank, President of the University of Wis- (Continued on Page 7)
