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.

FUN, THRILLS, PRIZES PROMISED TO ONE AND ALL—COME, DANCE, EAT THE RIMROCK ECHO — Eaflern Montana State Normal School — VOL. VIII. BILLINGS, MONTANA, FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 19, 1937 NO. 4 ALL SCHOOL DINNER WILL BE GIVEN TONIGHT Student Opinion Calls for Annual; Council Appoints Staff PRESIDENT WILL HEAD FACULTY COMMITTEE EASTMONT JAMBOREE FEBRUARY 26 There will be a Rimrock Annual this year, according to the announce- ment made by the Student Council after their meeting on Wednesday atfernoon. This decision came as a result of the large response from the student body to a request for signatures of those who desire an annual, to be financed largely from student activity funds and given to all students who have been in at- tendance for the entire year, with an adjusted cost to those who have been in attendance for one or two quarters. With the assistance of a faculty committee composed of Dr. McMul- len, Miss Roberts, Miss Meek, and Mr. Stuber, the council chose the following staff to put out the book: Editor - in - chief, Franklyn Wil- liams, Billings. Associate Editor, Lillian Peterson, Kalispell. Student Life Editor, Sylvia Neiss, Lewistown; assistant, Vern Wagner, Billings. Art Editor, Carolyn Westvelt, Lewistown; assistant, Lola Lindeen, Pompeys Pillar. Business Manager, Vern Clark, Billings; assistant, Floyd Beeler, Bil- lings. Circulation Manager, Dorothy Far- ris, Billings. These students have accepted the appointments, and work will begin at once. The most immediate task is taking the pictures of the seniors and the group pictures of first year students and organizations. Dr. McMullen has voluntarily as- sumed the chairmanship of the fac- ulty committee, and he deserves the wholehearted cooperation of all to insure a creditable book despite the late start. DANCE ARTIST TO APPEAR WITH TROUPE OF TWELVE Martha Graham, an outstanding exponent of the creative and inter- pretative dance, with a group of 12 young women and a five-piece or- chestra, will appear in our auditori- um Friday night, March 19. Students will be admitted on presentation of activity tickets, and admission will be charged to others. As the high priestess of the danse moderne, Miss Graham's work is an exemplification of sorrow and joy, exhibited through costume and color as well as through bodily move- ments. She carries her own scenery which provides an effective back- ground. The music, most of which was written for Miss Graham's dances, is played by an off-stage orchestra of woodwind and percussion instru- ments which acts sometimes as (Continued on Page 6) Plans for the Freshman Class Car- nival to be held in the basement on Friday night, February 26 are so shrouded in secrecy that the re- porter who received the following details barely escaped with his life. As the last blare of a trumpet echoed through the halls of East- mont, the balloting to determine the Jamboree Queen closed, but the identity of the beautiful damsel will not be disclosed to the student body until the evening of February 26, when she will be crowned in the most spectacular ceremony ever witnessed, amid regal splendor and attended by a retinue of the blue bloods of the school. Special enter- tainment for the queen and her court will follow the coronation cer- The Southern Division High School Class A and Class B Basketball Tour- nament, which will be held in E. M. S. N. S. gymnasium March 3-6, inclu- sive, will bring about 200 players and coaches with over a thousand boosters to the city. The teams con- testing in the Class A group will be from Anaconda, Billings, Miles City, Glendive, Bozeman, Anaconda, Butte, and Butte Central. The ClasS B teams will be determined by the Class B district tournaments, which are being held this week. Double Elimination Plan The games are played according to a double elimination plan.

Magnificent prizes will be presented by the Queen to the students taking part in contests. Among the many awards offered will be a beautiful portable radio. Side Shows! Freak Fests! Thrill Theatres! Unique entertainment will make every minute an unforgettable experience. Come and dance to the melodious strains of a six-piece orchestra. Refreshments will be served dur- ing the evening. The entire Jam- boree will cost students and guests nothing except their activity tickets unless they wish an extra helping. There will be a slight charge for second helpings. The big thrill of the tournament will be furnished Saturday night, when three championship games will be played to decide the teams which will represent the Southern Division at the state meet in Great Falls late in March. Gene Pearson and E. Pete Cadwell will be the official scorers, while Walter \Spot\ Sanford and Fred T. Daylis will be the official time- keepers. The referees have not yet been appointed by the state board of control. Students and Faculty Help The local tournament committee is composed of Dr. L. B. McMullen, chairman; 0. M. Bjorgum, director; H. N Stuber, finances; H. C. Hines, traffic and police; Charles Dean, restaurants and hotels; and N. C. Abbott, ushers and seating; Marjorie Stevenson, concessions, entries and publicity. (Continued on Page 6) Dean Hawkes to Speak; City Teachers Guests An all-school dinner is to be held in the Normal School basement to- night at 6 p. m. Besides the student body and faculty, a special invita- tion has been extended to the teach- ers of the Billings elementary schools who cooperate with the school in the training of prospective teachers. It has been a yearly custom to en- tertain for these teachers at some social function. This year the lunch- eon scheduled for Wednesday, Feb- ruary 10 was postponed until tonight and transformed into a dinner in their honor. The Glee Club will make its first appearance tonight on the dinner program, singing two numbers: Deep River — negro melody and Brown Bird Singing—Haydn Wood. We are very fortunate in having as our speaker Dean H. E. Hawkes of Columbia College, who is, as he says, \merely an appendage of Mrs. Hawkes,\ who is in the city to fur- ther the work of the National Vo- cational Guidance project. Dean Hawkes has not announced his sub- ject, but it will be a discussion of some new phase of educational work, after which everyone will adjourn to the gymnasium for the basketball game between the Yellowjackets and the Bull Dogs of Dillon, and the all-school dance afterward. Dinner will be served at 6 p. m. sharp. There is a very appetizing menu consisting of salmon cro- quettes with cheese sauce; whole kernel corn; candied yams, perfec- tion salad, olives, rolls, preserves, with angel food cake and coffee for dessert. The decorations will be under the supervision of Miss Roberts. Large flags will be draped upon the walls and about the posts. Small flags will be used to decorate the center of the tables. Additional decorations will be, in color and design, suitable for the occasion of Washington's birthday, and candles will furnish the only light on the tables. Last Game Tonight; School Dance Follows The Yellowjackets will meet the Dillon Bulldogs in the gymnasium tonight at 8:15, thus finishing the conference schedule for the season. Everyone should turn out to help the boys put up the stiffest fight of the season. Following the game, there will be an informal dance with music fur- nished by Vern Clark's orchestra. Most of the students will be on the campus for the all-school dinner at 6 o'clock, and those who walk out on the dance and the game will be pretty poor sports.
