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 Page Four Thursday, October 27, 1938. Freshman Week Plan Judged Success By All The fall quarter began with an assembly at 8 o'clock on Monday morning, October 3, with a larger attendance than usual. The school has adopted the plan of having freshman week. The newcomers thus had time to get acquainted before regular classes began on the follow- ing Monday. The schedule for the first year classes was pretty well filled with registration, physical ex- aminations, pictures and entrance tests during the day and entertain- ment at night. The second year students were enrolled by Dr. Mc- Mullen and Mr. Stuber during the entire week, with plenty of time for consultation. A Full Social Program The faculty held a reception in the gymnasium Monday night as a \get together\ for all students. Dr. McMullen informally welcomed the new students. As is the custom, each second year student took a first year student in hand for the evening and introduced him to the faculty and other students. Refreshments were served in the Green room by mem- bers of the Katoya and W. A. A., with Annabel Peterson and Ann Oser acting as chairmen. Wednesday evening of the first week was given over to pictures showing the growth and progress of the school since its beginning 11 years ago. A songfest was to be held afterwards, but there was no time. Mixer Held On Friday Friday evening finished the activ- ities of the week with the annual mixer in the gymnasium. This in- formal party was sponsored by the second year class. James Salsbury of the class, with the help of Mr. Hoheisel, class sponsor, and other newly elected officers conducted a short program of music and contest games, which was followed by danc- ing. Second year girls served punch to the thirsty dancers. Almost every one came and seemingly had a good time. Besides the advantage of orienta- tion for new students, the new pro- gram offers more considered enroll- ment of second year students, so that there have been very few changes of schedule during the suc- ceeding weeks. SKETCHING CLUB EXPLORES CLIFF DWELLINGS IN KLEIN A new class in sketching has been added to the art department with Miss Roberts as director. The class, which meets on Tuesday and Fri- day, plans to do as much of the sketching as possible out of doors. Sunday, October 16, five of the class made a trip to Klein to sketch some of the cliff dwellings, really natural rock houses, which were occupied by miners until 1925. An old miner who lived in one of the houses for 25 years took the sketchers through the home in which all his children were born. The class took a lunch along and enjoyed the trip so much that they plan to take several more before it gets too cold. Service Club Sponsors Dance About 100 Normal School students and their guests enjoyed the second dancing party of the quarter at the Normal School auditorium Friday, October 21. The dance was spon- sored by the Service club, and the music was furnished by an unor- ganized orchestra which was excep- tionally good. The piano accom- panist was one of our own freshman students, Orland Jordahl of Billings. Punch was served throughout the evening. Faculty members present were Dr. and Mrs. McMullen, Mr. and Mrs. Hoheisel, Miss Dewey, Mr. Foote, Mr. Dean, Mr. Stuber. The committees in charge were: Orchestra — Anne Oser, Margaret Froiland. Refreshments — Eleanor Kennedy, Yvonne Halsey. Serving—Isabel Moerkerke, Eve- lyn Kelnofer, Lillian Eldridge, Adair Johnson. Door — John Hershberger, Hans Wischman, Bob Morin, John Lamers. Advertising—Zola Warthen. Arrangement — Wayne Babcock, Bill Swartz, Max Buitenveld, Mil- dred Hunter, Rex Welton. W. A. A. Initiates Many New Members On Wednesday evening, October 19, the W. A. A. held initiation of new members in the gymnasium. An unusually large number, 64 in all, have applied for admission and 39 were initiated. The evening began with games for the initiates, after which everyone went to the Green room for the more solemn part of the ceremony. The new girls accepted the vows of the club and were presented to the fac- ulty sponsor, Miss Stevenson, and the officers. Gingerbread and cider were served, and both old and new members danced in the gymnasium. The officers for fall quarter are Anne Oser, Billings, president; Mar- garet Froilund, Glendive, vice pres- ident; Yvonne Halsey, Glendive, treasurer; and Pearl Baird, Broad- view, secretary. CLARK AND MATROSS WIN IN ORATORICAL CONTEST Jerry Herfendahl of the Polytech- nic won first place at the Young Republican oratorical contest, held Saturday, October 15, at the Com- mercial club. Other honors went to two students from E. M. S. N. S. Marilyn Clark took second place and Jerome Matross third. The ten topics to choose from were all \new deal\ topics, Mr. Herfen- dahl speaking on \Can the Initiative of Youth be Obtained Under the New Deal\; Miss Clark on \Must America Fight Another War\; Mr. Matross on \America's Choice—Gov- ernment Control or Free Enterprise.\ Mr. Herfendahl will go to Helena to enter the state oratorical contest. FIFTY RECEIVE N. Y. A. AID According to Mr. Stuber, 50 of the student applications for N. Y. A. help were approved by the faculty- N. Y. A. board during the first week of school and these students were allotted grants ranging from $5 to $10 a month. The committee is made up of the following faculty members: Dr. Mc- Mullen, Mr. Stuber, Miss Meek, Miss Stevenson, Mr. Dean, Mr. Bjorgum and Dr. Cooper, who succeeds Mr. Hawks on the board. The Eastern Montana State Nor- mal School is to receive a grant of $375 per month for the N. Y. A. students. This was granted on the basis of $15 per month for each of 23 students but with the large num- ber of students needing help it was necessary to cut down the allotment per student and increase the num- ber. Expect 300 Guests at Alumni Luncheon The E. M. S. N. S. alumni lunch- eon in connection with the sectional meeting of M. E. A. at Billings will be held Friday noon in the normal school auditorium. This luncheon is always looked forward to with great anticipation on the part of the par- ticipants. It promises to be \bigger and better\ than ever this year, for at least 300 alumni and friends are expected to attend. Other E. M. S. N. S. luncheons will be held in Bozeman and Great Falls. Miss Stevenson will be the faculty representative at the alumni lunch- eon in Bozeman, and Mr. Dean in Great Falls. Maps tell a student everything he wants to know, except how to fold them again. Church Mixer Is Success; Many Students Attend The churches of Billings gave a mixer for the college students on October 17, at the Methodist church. The program opened with several accordion selections, followed by the singing of popular songs, rounds and hymns, and the playing of games. Then the guests were served ice cream, cake and coffee, after which everyone shared in the spiritual program. The ministers of the va- rious churches were introduced. The Reverend C. E. Johnson, pastor of the American Lutheran church, gave an address welcoming students to the churches of Billings. This was the first program of this type ever presented in Billings. About 200 students from the Poly- technic Institute, Townsend Beauty School, Deaconess Nurses School, and Eastern Montana State Normal School enjoyed the hospitality of their church hosts and hostesses. STUDENT VISITS NORWAY Miss Sigfrid Helgeland of Pryor, who enrolled with the class of '39, sailed from New York, December 8, 1937, on the \S. S. Stavangirfjord\ and landed December 17 at Staven- ger, Norway, where she visited rel- atives. While in Norway Miss Helgeland visited many museums, among them an old Norwegian folk museum. She visited the university at Oslo and was surprised to find it so much like our American universities. How- ever, only the students of highest scholastic rating are chosen for the university and they don't have to pay any tuition. She also visited the agricultural college, where they were trying to grow alfalfa which winter kills there. Some of the things of interest Miss Helgeland visited were a sardine canning factory; Frue-Meirie, the largest creamery in Scand;navia; the pottery makers at work; the yarn dyers dyeing wool from wood dye. Miss Helgeland did a number of interesting things, such as fishing for herring in the ocean, spending a week at a weaving school, dancing folk dances and going to church from two to three hours on Sunday. At Easter Miss Helgeland went skiing and skating with a group of college students. Later in the season she spent a week at the scenic Har- danger district, a summer resort, where she met and visited with people from practically every coun- try in Europe. While in Norway she worked in a store for a month. The stores, and in fact every business enterprise in Norway, are run on the cooperative basis. Prices are \fixed\ in all stores. The hospital fees are scaled to meet the patient's ability to pay and the hospitals are maintained by the state. Fish is the main food in Norway, with breads, cake, and coffee listed next. It is customary to eat five times a day. Miss Helgeland found the inhab- itants a slow and easy-going people. \If you don't have time today do it tomorrow,\ they say. They are con- tent with what they have and are very polite. Miss Helgeland's sister, Agnes, June '37, came to Norway in June. She traveled through Norway, Den- mark and Sweden, visiting the cap- ital of each country, but she found none as lovely as Washington, D. C. She also went into the northland and saw the Laplanders and the mid- night sun. The girls sailed from Stavenger on S. S. Oslofjord, August 5, landing in New York on August 13. They visited in New York, Washington, D. C., Chicago and Minneapolis be- fore their arrival in Billings. SUBSCRIBE FOR ECHO The Rimrock Echo can be ob- tained by mail for 50 cents a year.

The following were elected: presi- dent, Dorothy Schock; vice presi- dent, Jean Tyson; secretary, Beulah Satterthwait; treasurer, Victoria Sampsel. Plans were made for the all-school Thanksgiving luncheon which the Sketch club is to sponsor. The pro- gram to be given by the members includes a burlesque of the first Thanksgiving day, an Indian dance, and a speech by the president. An- other feature is the Courtship of Miles Standish (style 1938). A few surprises and plenty of good food will add to the gala occasion. HEALTH COURSE OFFERED \Health Education\ is a new class conducted by Miss Stevenson and giving credit for third year work. \The purpose of this new course,\ says Miss Stevenson, \is to instruct the students in the necessary facts that will enable them to teach any type of health education in the ele- mentary grades.\ There are 11 stu- dents enrolled in the class for this quarter. pe of school taught by each graduate A similar list for August graduates ard, rural; Lola Richards, Livings- ton, rural; Betsy Ross, Lodge Grass, grade 1B ; Lois Elaine Sandbak, Broadview, Musselshell, rural; Dor- othy Sather, 011ie, lower grades: Mildred Schlosser, Westmore, Dry Creek, rural; Mary Shreve, McRae, Hardin district, rural; Marie Sieg, Barber, Golden Valley, rural.

Marriages Are the Mode Each year a number of E. M. S. N. S. alumni become married, leav- ing place for new teachers. The summer of 1938 is no exception as the following list of marriages will show. It is not a complete list, at that. Dorothy Ruggles, December '37, of Ryegate, was married to Ernie Blu- mer of Harlowotn last June. Irene Hand, '37, of Miles City was married in June to Byron Roberts of Denver. Helen Elizabeth Temple was mar- ried to Robert Paterson, '38, on June 9. Mr. Paterson has assumed coach- ing and teaching duties at Clyde Park. Florence Boyd, '35, of Hobson, Judith Basin county teacher and Harold J. Hanson of Utica were married at Hobson, August 28. Helen Seth, Helena, and Vance L. Bronson, '35, principal of the Round Butte school, were married during the summer in Helena. Mildred Vejtasa, '31, Whitehall teacher, was the June bride of Wayne Fenner of Whitehall. Frances Pemberton, '32, is now Mrs. Milford DeYoung. She lives at Woodenville, Washington where she is teaching school. Hazel Jacobs, August '33, is now Mrs. Conrad. She was married in May, and is teaching in Sweetgrass county. Janet Young, '37, became Mrs. George Stebbins last May. Milderd Highland, December '37, and Charles Holmes, June '38, were married last June. Genevieve Gregerson, December '32, of Billings, was married to Ro- bert C. Welch, of Brooklyn. New York last June. Most Promising Teachers Placed in Rural Schools A proof that Eastern Montana State Normal School is fulfilling the purpose for which it was founded is the fact that it sent into rural schools seven of the \ten most promising students\ of the 1937-38 class. Con- trary to the common belief the placement bureau does not expect to place its ten best students in town schools. The purpose is to place them first in rural schools and later in town schools. The placement of the \ten most promising\ this year was as follows: Floyd Beeler, Billings — upper grades at Gardiner. Lois Frazer, Lavina—rural school at Franklin. Betty Franzen, Billings—at home. Montana Hays, Colstrip — rural school at Finch. Sylvia Neiss, Lewistown — inter- mediate grades at Pony. .Gladys Torgrimson, Absarokee — rural school near Absarokee. Vern Wagner, Billings—Lindsay. Cleo Weppler, Ryegate — rural school. Ruth Woodhouse, Wibaux—rural school near Wibaux. One good thing about telling the truth—you don't have to remember what you said.
