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.

ROVER CLUB IS POPULAR The Rover club, started by Mr. Hoheisel last quarter, has 65 mem- bers enrolled to date. This number insures the presence of a represent- ative crowd each Saturday after- noon for the projected hike of the day. The weather has been excellent and there has been an abundance of dry wood for the usual campfire. Members are urged to come out only when their schedules definitely per- mit two recreation hours. Participation in four regular hikes and the initiation hike through the \Devil's Kitchen,\ one of nature's oddities on the north rims, entitles the hiker to active membership for the current quarter. Registration is open to men and women alike; a mixed group is considered desirable. The club keeps a historical notebook, in which the active roll is kept, and each hike is picturized. The aims of the club include, (1) the encouragement of new friend- ships; (2) more intimate faculty- student relationships; (3) encour- agement of the art of photography; and (4) the building of healthier bodies and minds. OUT-OF-TOWN GUESTS Out - of - town guests of normal school students during the last month included Miss Paula Kline of Hardin, who visited Miss Vivian Nielsen and Miss Isobel Moerkerke; iMss Patri- cia Robinson of Livingston, who was the guest of Miss Dorothy Neal; and Carleton Krull of Glendive, who was the guest of his sister, Miss Garnett Krull.
