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.
THE RIMROCK ECHO Eailern Montana Normal School VOL. VII BILLINGS, MONTANA, FRIDAY, MAY 29, 1936 NO. 6 LARGE CLASS WILL RECEIVE DIPLOMAS JUNE 12 \The Ivory Door\ Will Be Presented On Wednesday, June the Tenth FIRST MAJOR PLAY GIVEN ON NEW STAGE The \Ivory Door,\ the first major production to be given on the new stage, will be presented Wednesday evening, June 10, by a cast of 16 students. The play, written by A. A. Milne, consists of three acts, a pro- logue and an epilogue. The plot centers around an old legend of the \Ivory Door\ through which none might go and ever return. The story, which takes place in an indefinite \long long ago,\ offers a satirical expose of the tendency of nations and individuals to cling to hered- itary beliefs. The play is not only vivid and unusual, but contains much action. The mob scene, in particular, offers an opportunity for concentrated action and is probably the most interesting part of the play. Students Make Scenery Striking and unusual stage and lighting effects have been made pos- sible by the installation of a com- plete and efficient lighting system and by the efforts of the Dramatic Art class, which is designing and making all the costumes and scenery to be used in the play. Cast Numbers 16 The cast, as reported by Miss Dewey, director, is as follows: King Hilary John Daly Brand Harold Galahan The Chancellor Sam Panos King Perivale Burton Caruso Captain of the Guard. Bop Pepper The Mummer Phillip Foss Count Rollo Philip Nelson Anton Paul Bussinger Old Beppo Roy Johnson Simeon Charles Perkins Titus / Soldiers of 5 Carl Johnson Carlo 5 the Guard 1 Ed Gremmer Princes Lilia Anne Helder Old Anna Vivian Smith Thora Edna Cooke Jessica Alta Mae Johnston The King Sigurd Selden Associate Director Bill Bowen During the mob scene more than 20 performers from the Katoya Play- ers and the Dramatic Art classes will appear. Orchestra Will Play Stage lighting will be managed by Harold Johnston and Ed Wright, while the stage crew will be under the direction of Lenore Mettes. The orchestra, under the direction of Mr. Ridgely, will provide music be- tween acts. Plan to see the \Ivory Door,\ the outstanding dramatic event of the year. Maybe the reason Methuselah lived to such an age was that he didn't have to worry about his vita- mins. ABBOTT CONDUCTS BATTLEFIELD TOUR E. M. S. N. S. students, under the guidance of Professor Abbott, will leave tomorrow, Memorial day, for the annual all-day tour of the Cus- ter Battlefield. This tour was first made in 1928. It is sponsored by the Student Association, and a bus has been chartered for this event. The trip will include a survey of the Custer-Reno Battlefield, Custer Bat- tlefield proper and a detour to the site of old Fort Custer. The stu- dents and their guide will stop to lunch at Crow Agency. The excur- sion will be an excellent opportunity for nature study students to gather plants as there are many varieties in this territory. Friends outside of the school have also been cordially invited to attend. Art Work to be Shown With Demonstrations On Monday, June 8, the annual Art Exhibit will be held in the cor- ridors on the third floor and in the rooms of the Art department. All types of work done by students during the year will be on exhibit from one to five in the afternoon. In the evening, in addition to this exhibit, there will be demonstra- tions of all types of art work in rooms 309 and 305. Student committees have not yet been appointed, but they will have entire charge of the exhibit. It is hoped that students will in- vite their friends and others inter- ested in art to view the specimens of work. New activities this year are wood carving and clay modeling. Everyone who attends this annual event is enthusiastic about it. It is one of the high spots of the Com- mencement season. YELLOWJACKETS WIN CITY COLLEGE SERIES FROM POLYTECHNIC With a barrage of hits that netted 24 runs, Tuesday afternoon, May 19, the E. M. S. N. S. baseball team defeated the Polytechnic nine to win the city college championship by the score of 24-9. In the first game, a determined sixth-inning rally that brought in five runs, gave a 9-8 victory over the Poly in the opening encounter of a three-game series at Flanna- gan's field, Tuesday afternoon, May 12. A good brand of ball playing was exhibited by both clubs, as the Yel- lowjackets, trailing 7-4, ralied after a singe by Harold Johnston. Four singles and two errors combined to give the Yellowjackets the five wins that meant victory. Galahan Is Star Harold Galahan, whom Coach Bjorgum selected for mound duty, fanned nine Poly batters and pitched unusually good ball despite weak fielding on the part of his team- mates. Poly Wins Second In the second game of the series, Saturday, May 16, the Poly tri- umphed 14-8, evening the series, one all. The battery for the mound was Harold Johnston pitching and Gonzales behind the plate. Borgen pitched for the Poly and Thompson did the receiving. In the third and deciding game of the series, Tuesday, May 19, a bar- rage of hits that drove four Poly hurlers from the box, clinched the city college baseball championship for the E. M. S. N. S. by the score of 24-9. Ineffective pitching spelled defeat for the Poly in the one-sided game. Highlights of the game were home (Continued on Page 6, Col. 4) WOODBURN TO SPEAK AT EXERCISES Commencement exercises will be held in the Normal School gymna- sium at 10 a. in. on Friday, June 12.

Their honor guests on this occasion will be the mem- bers of the graduating class. Faculty and faculty wives and visiting rela- tives and friends are also invited. Because of the illness of their daughter, Dr. and Mrs. McMullen have found it impossible to open their home on this occasion as they have so graciously done in the past few years.
