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.

He will be accompanied by Mrs. McMullen. On May 20 he will begin his trip by giving the commencement ad- dress at Worden High School. His next commencement address will be given at Kenton, Ohio on May 27. Dr. McMullen graduated from the Kenton High School 45 years ago. On May 28 he will talk at Nobles- ville, Indiana, which is the county seat of the county in which he was born. On June 1 he will address an audience of 1,500 people in the Cable Tabernacle for the Manual Training High School in Indianapolis, a city which is quite like home to him be- cause 40 years ago he began his profession as a teacher of science in Shortridge High School in Indian- apolis. While on this trip Dr. and Mrs. McMullen will visit Mrs. McMullen's brother in Cincinnati. Dr. McMullen will visit the University of Ken- tucky, where he used to teach, and De Pauw University at Greencastle, Indiana, where he was graduated in June, 1897. On his way home for our own commencement he will stop at the University of Wyoming at Laramie for the semi-centennial cel- ebration of that school on June 6. He will cover about 4,000 miles on his trip. Undoubtedly, Dr. McMullen will have an opportunity to talk about the good qualities of our own school while he is traveling in the east. VICTIM OF ACCIDENT SHOWS IMPROVEMENT Miss Dorothy Ruggles of Shaw- mut, who was seriously injured in an automobile accident on Sunday, April 18, was operated on at St. Vincent's Hospital yesterday to set her pelvic bone which was broken in two places. Dorothy is now in a plaster cast and she is well on the way to recovery. As she was returning to Billings from Shawmut she attempted to pass another car close by the Lake Elmo road. In order to avoid strik- ing a car coming in the opposite direction she turned toward the Lake Elmo road, but the car got beyond her control because the brakes did not hold and turned over down the embankment. She was thrown from the car and pinned under it as it turned over. Doris Barnes of Billings, first year student, and three other young peo- ple from the Polytechnic and the Business College were in the car but they received only minor scratches. M. E. A. Members Will Present Dean Hamilton Dr. J. N. Hamilton, Dean of Men at Montana State College, is to be the main speaker at the all-school luncheon, which is to be sponsored by the local M. E. A. on May 5, in the Normal School basement. Dr. Hamilton, formerly the presi- dent of the Montana State College, and now dean of men, has served as an educator in Montana for nearly 35 years. He is one of the best known educators in the state. As the program is to be a tribute to former educators and the prog- ress of education, Dr. Hamilton's address will be concerned with Mon- tana educators and their work. The remainder of the program is to con- sist of old time songs and recitations. The chairmen of some of the com- mittees are: Decorations—Helen Mc- Kee; Program — Rosa Eisenman; Menu—Norma Jager. Service Club Formed By Freshman Leaders A group of first year students met with Dr. McMullen Wednesday aft- ernoon for the purpose of forming a service club to function next year. The intention is to have a respon- sible group of students who will aid in the school activities, many of which have heretofore been carried by the Student Council and com- mittees appointed by the council. Such duties as acting as ushers and traffic policemen, organizing pep rallies and perhaps planning for spe- cial luncheons are to be taken over by the new service club. There is no name for the organization as yet. A committee composed of Bob Pa- terson, Vern Wagner and Lola Rich- ard was appointed to draw up a constitution and by-laws. Students and Faculty Will Go to Lewistown Quite a representation of talent from our school will take part in the program at the State Conference of Rotary Clubs at Lewistown on Monday, May 3. Dr. McMullen will speak and Mr. Ridgely and Miss Terrell will give violin and flute numbers at the luncheon. At the International Relations dinner Sylvia Neiss and Marjorie Dunn will pre- sent a Mexican dance as the contri- bution of the Billings club to the International program. Each club in the state will present a number, typical of the country which it chooses to represent. Mr. Abbott, who is a member of the Billings Rotary Club, will take the girls in his car. ROOM FOR 72 GIRLS IN HOUSEKEEPING UNITS At last, after great effort on the part of our president and the local board of trustees, Eastern Montana State Normal School is to have a dormitory. Though the bonds have not yet been sold it is expected that the matter will be settled soon, so that work can begin in May, in order to have the building ready for occu- pancy next fall. Board Authorizes Building for. At its meeting on April 12 the State Board authorized the local building committee to sell bonds and ask for a P. W. A. grant for such a building. Immediately the archi- tect started to work on the plans, and blueprints are about ready. The one story stucco building will be located west and south of the present building between the new county road and the ditch. The plans are made from Dr. McMul- len's own suggestions of a Spanish type building with a landscaped patio in the center. The front wall will have a tower, similar to the one on the Administration building, and a main entrance to the court. There will be a separate entrance to each apartment. Equipped for Housekeeping Each apartment is equipped for light housekeeping with a kitchen- ette, a bedroom which will accom- modate two, three or four girls, and a large living room. There will be a bathroom and a large electric refrig- erator for each two apartments. The students can regulate their own heat, for each apartment is provided with a gas heater. Trunks will be stored in the tower. There will be a stor- age room for potatoes and canned goods that the girls bring from home. The $40,000 building will accom- modate from 36 to 72, depending upon the number of girls in each apartment. If three girls share one apartment the cost per student will be about eight dollars a month or $72 for three quarters. Rules Will Be Few \The dormitory will be run on the same basis as our school,\ an- nounced Dr. McMullen; \few rules to obey except to act like young women with common sense. The students will probably organize for self government. There will be a house mother to take care of sick girls and help with their problems.\ Here is good news for some of the girls. Contrary to the regulations in most dormitories they can entertain their calelrs in their apartments. You see, girls, you can have as much freedom in the new dorm as you now have, with many more con- veniences.
