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.

Poly Crusaders Keep League Record Clean League-leading Crusaders of the Billings Poly ran true to form to defeat the Yellowjackets of the E.M.S.N.S. with a 48-31 score in a conference basketball game here Tuesday night. The normal school team made the first count when Marcus scored from the right corner, but the Crusaders came back to take a lead which they never lost. Late in the first heat the Yellow- jackets climbed within five points of the Poly and the half-time score stood 19-14. During the first few minutes of play in the second half, the Yellowjackets brought the score to 21-18, but the Poly began hitting the hoop and pulled away to a com- manding lead. Wilson paced the Poly scorers with 16 points, closely followed by Bar- gen with 15. Normal's high-point men were Stark with 12 and Bab- cock with 8. The victory brought the Crusaders' conference wins to eight straight. They held a previous 48-27 win over the Jackets in a game on the Poly floor January 10. 'Jackets Lose Three (Continued from Page 1) leading. Gallant, Mines forward, led the scoring with 17 points. Stark topped Normal scorers with 11 points.

Connie Lundgren, Mines all-con- ference guard, led the scorers with 19 points. Capt. Wayne Babcock led the E.M.S.N.S. attack with 14 points.

Normal Wins Over Carroll (Continued from Page 1) The game marked a complete re- versal in Normal school playing form. Previously they had played good ball the first half only to weaken in the second.

Goebel, associate editor of the \Slone Teacher\ at the Dickinson State Teachers' college at Dickinson, N. D. Mr. Goebel made comment on the editorial appearing in the December 9 \Echo entitled \A Modern Girl Wonders,\ written by Mrs. Ruth Miller, a December graduate. In her editorial Mrs. Miller con- tended that modern girls were not receiving the courtesies accorded her mother by the gentlemen of this period in comparison to \when pa was courtin' ma.\ Mr. Goebel feels that her condemnation was biased in that \too many women of today fail to display any expectation of the niceties the gentlemen might accord them.\ Appearing in the \College Ex- change\ section of the January 13 issue of the \Nomoco\ of the North- ern Montana college at Havre are two editorials from the Echo. They were \Three Types of Teachers\ by Ernestine Hanley and \Quiet Please,\ an editorial on the noise in the li- brary, written by Pearl Baird.

Grads Teach Scouting To Boys in Schools Floyd Beeler and Chuck Holmes, both of the spring of '38, and John Lamers, fall of '38, are assuming leadership in boy scout activities in the communities in which they teach, according to Dr. McMullen. Floyd and Chuck are scoutmasters of troops in Gardiner and Jordan respectively, and John has applied for permission to direct lone scout work in Rothiemay, as there are not enough boys to form a troop. The troops of Beeler and Holmes will be under the supervision of the local council, but John Lamers' ac- tivities at Rothiemay will be through the boy scout offices at Great Falls.
