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.

Yellowjackets Close Season With No Wins In playing the last game of the season on February 17, the Yellow- kets their season's record u nbroken by losing to the Bulldogs of Dillon by a score of 76-57. After taking a seven-point lead in the opening minutes of the game, the Teachers were overrun by an offense that wove through their de- fense to count up a score of 76-57 at the end of the game. Crusaders Overtake Lead In staging a very promising come- back on Monday, February 14, the Yellowjackets showed promise . of taking a game but were defeated during the second half by a score of 43-34. The Yellowjackets led the Poly Crusaders at the half time period by a score of 16-14, but during the second period the Crusaders forged ahead enough to win the game. Al- though the score was tied several times during this time, the Yellow- jackets were unable to score enough to bring their total up to that of their opponents. Carrol-Havre Trip While on their second trip, the Yellowjackets played at the North- ern Montana college at Havre and at Carrol college at Helena. Al- though the scores appear quite dis- astrous, it was reported that the boys gave the Northern Lights plenty of opposition in the second game played there. At the end of the game the score was 61-47. The Yellowjackets were in the lead until the last few minutes of play when the Northern Lights sank several field goals just before the close to take an easy lead. The score, 74-31, tells all that need be said about the Carrol game. During the first trip, taken Janu- ary 26-29, the game with the Ore- diggers at the State School of Mines at Butte yielded a score of 49-30 in favor of the Miners. The second and third games of this series were played at Dillon, where the Yellowjackets were de- feated in both games. The final scores of these games were 71-35 and 57-30 respectively. SUCCESSFUL YELL LEADERS The unusual pep shown by the cheering section at the basketball games this year is the result of the efficient work of our yell leader, Vern Wagner, and his assistants, Jerry Nelson and Gen LaRowe. When Vern goes in for anything he does it in a big way and so he has done as yell leader with Gen and Jerry as his faithful assistants throughout the season. Many of the spectators have been just as inter- ested in Vern's tactics as they have been in the game (while waiting for a basket or a good play from the floor). With the help of Miss Nourse, Vern learned to conduct the pep band, as well as the entire singing crowd. The student body is grateful to Gen, Jerry and Vern for their lead- ing. They have what it takes-VIM! VIGOR! and VITALITY! A'S AND C'S PLAY OFF DIVISION TOURNAMENTS In the intramural basketball games which have been completed thus far the Hackerville All-Star team came out at the top in the A division. Those who played on the winning team are Margaret Froiland, cap- tain, Glendive; Betty Cooper, Willow Creek; Ruth Johanson, Custer; Cath- erine Croake, Miles City; Grace At- kinson, Ekalaka; Mary Lou Van Camp, Circle; Mabel Burns, Plevna and Mae Knebel of Glendive.

S. and Montana State college at play day exercises which will be given on some week end in the early part of May. .Eight girls will be chosen from the W. A. A. to represent E. M. S. N. S. Election of officers for the spring quarter in W. A. A. was held on March 7. President, Gladys Tor- grimson, Absarokee; vice president, Erna Berndt, Shepherd; secretary, Genevieve La Rowe, Circle; treas- urer, Doris Nielson, Crane, were the elected officers. Page Four THE RIMROCK ECHO Friday, March 11, 1938 INTRAMURAL GAMES PLAYED Since the close of the basketball season some weeks ago, the boys have taken a keen interest in play- ing volleyball. It has been rumored that a series of games will be played with the Poly men, providing the Teachers show enough ability. The intercollegiate games played to date have looked pretty ragged, but per- haps the fellows will wake up. Ping Pong Becoming Popular If one would look into the lunch room at any hour of the day he would probably find a number of boys very much taken up with a game of ping pong while others await their turn at the table. For several days the tables have been in constant use as nearly everyone plays or would like to learn. The reports are that some of the fellows are pretty good. Maybe a tourna- ment should be arranged. Bjorgum Referees Klein Tournament On Thursday, Friday and Satur- day, February 24, 25, 26, Mr. Bjor- gum refereed the district basketball tournament held in Klein. In this tournament, which was district num- ber seven of the high school B class divisional tournaments, there were 12 teams represented with Roundup taking first place. Of these teams two were coached by former stu- dents of E. M. S. N. S. The team from Lavina was coached by Hilton Utterbach, June '35, and the Judith Gap team was coached by Roy Ol- son, June '34. While working at this tournament Mr. Bjorgum and Gene Pearson had the new experience of refereeing ten tournament games in one day, which Mr. Bjorgum reports as being lots of running for one day. Between games, Helen Harmond's drill team put on exhibition drills. While at the tournament Oscar says he met many former students and superintendents who are pleased with the type of work being done by graduates of E. M. S. N. S. The Lavina basketball team, coached by Hilton Utterbach, was awarded the banner for the best sportsmanship of the 12 teams represented. Trips By Team Cost Three Cents a Mile It will be of interest to most E. M. S. N. S. students to learn just what the two trips taken by the basketball squad this quarter cost the activity fund. The total distance which the team covered on these trips was 1600 miles, all the traveling done by au- tomobile or bus. There were 14 men on each trip, the total expenses of which were $660 including meals, hotel expenses, and travel. To put it more concretely, it cost less than three cents per man per mile to travel, eat and sleep. Now, what does the student-body receive for this expenditure? They get to see, if they take advantage of it, ten basketball games at home. At the regular admission price of 40 cents per person, each student is able to see $4.00 worth of basketball games. Figuring that there are 250 students in school, the students ,re- ceive $1,000 worth of games. In ad- dition to this, during the current season, each student was permitted to bring a guest. From this it can very easily be shown that sponsoring a team is an asset to the school, if things would work out as one would like to have them do. STARTS SIX MAN FOOTBALL Leon C. Foote, March '30, is teach- ing the upper grades at Denton, where he has been for the past seven years. He is also coach of the Denton high school basketball team -and a good one too as is evidenced by the fact that his team has placed second in the district class B tour- naments each year losing the district place by only a narrow margin. Leon is responsible for introducing \six man football\ in Montana. His team played in the mythical cham- pionship game at Great Falls in 1937 and was recognized by the American Boy magazine as worthy of having a place in the write-up of \six man football.\ Team Entertained by Mr. and Mrs. Borgum On Sunday, February 20, Mr. and Mrs. 0. M. Bjorgum entertained the members of the basketball squad at a dinner in their home, 141 Grand avenue. Those present included Gib John- son, Clark McGarry, Floyd Beeler, Lowell Smith, Joe Stark, Wayne Babcock, James Minnie, Evan Cowle, Jack Johnson, Wayne Marcus, Per- cell Overby, Rex Welton, Donald Chambers, Bob Paterson and Man- ager Vern Clark. Kindergarten Food Sale Proves a Great Success The food sale conducted by the kindergarten children on Washing- ton's birthday was a complete suc- cess, both financially and educa- tionally. It all began one day when Jerry brought two turtles to school so that the rest of the kindergarten and pre-school children might see what a live turtle looked like. The children enjoyed the turtles very much, and when Jerry took them back home, something had to be done about it. Edelweiss suggested that they buy some turtles of their own. When they realized that in order to buy something one must have money, suggestions were made that they earn some. After much discussion the idea of a food sale was finally agreed upon. They decid- ed that they would sell cakes, cook- ies, and doughnuts in celebration of Washington's birthday. Ronnie had an electric popper, so, in addi- tion, they could sell popcorn which could be made at school. Commit- tees were chosen to take charge of the various tasks. On the day of the sale, the flour- ishing business made the present recession look like a myth. The children's own decorations added an air of festivity. The children made their aprons of crepe paper and con- struction paper. They were of dif- ferent colors and some were deco- rated with stripes or flowers or colored pockets. Behind the screens the \cooking committee\ popped the corn, and the tempting odor of fresh popcorn filled the corridors, enticing students and faculty to the sale. A \door committee\ very gra- ciously took the customers by the hands and guided them to the ta- bles, where they told them what they had to sell and also what was going to be bought with the money. The tables were decorated with de- signs made by the children. A sign on each table designated the price of the articles. The supply of food was exhausted in no time, and the sum of $5.00 was realized. Many disappointed cus- tomers came too late.

Wish they had regular visiting days at the kindergarten . . . Lola R. the mugwump . . . Ever walked in the lovely park west of the school across Normal Blvd.? . . . Wonder if Oscar sits for time exposures at the B. B. games . . . The twittery trio of Vogner, Shocked and Platter- weight (done if awful!) . . . Maxon and the cat in the manger . . . Stub hunters, look in \The Garden of the Dregs of Vice\ in the corner by the east steps . . . 'Tis too bad we girls do all the work around here and the men get all the money . . . Darn those Strommes anyhow; they might at least wear different clothes or something . . . The crust of the guys who posed as gentlemen and crashed the Gridiron dinner program . . Must be rich guys, Miss Meek and •Mr. Abbott, to be able to leave their cars running to warm them up. When you have all your lessons prepared for the next day . . . when you read something new on the bul- letin board .. . when you have at least one pair of stockings without a run ... when you've caught a ride to school every day for a week .. . when something exciting happens on Sunday . . . when you budget your money so there is some left over for a show or two . . . then b'gory, you're dreaming ! When the Echo staff made its visit to the Gazette Mr. Seipp showed them the old papers that the Ga- zette had printed in 1883. Back in those good old days of '83 there was a tremendous surplus of men, Oh! Normal school girls! Too bad, isn't it, to be born 35 years too late. Miss Rich thinks that some of the students regard her as a miracle woman when they inquire, \Will you give me a Beard, please?\ She also considers that they are getting slightly personal when they say, \May I have 'Your Carriage Ma- dam',\ or \May I have 'Your Every- day Speech'?\ Miss Marjorie Dunn is nearer to a wedding than most of the girls, even if she hasn't a man and a ring. Last Monday at the open house given by the Ideal Bakery company, she held the lucky number which won for her (and her friends) a beautiful three-tier wedding cake. A lull is what happens after Miss Rich says, \Will you people please be quiet?\ A buzz is what comes after Bob Kehoe says \Will you people please be quiet?\ Try This Test .. . The following is a substitution test. The last names of the follow- ing people in E. M. S. N. S. have been sadly manhandled. Get your wits to working and win the prize which will be offered to the person who first untangles this mess, places the correct name, and delivers the list to a member of the Echo staff. 1.
