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.

Sophs Hold Election; Ruppel Heads Group The second year class meeting was held on Monday, October 2 for the purpose of electing officers. Those elected were: Maxine Ruppel of Bil- lings, president; Emery Ostby of Froid, vice president; Bud Humiston of Edgar, secretary. Vivian Hall and Polly Ryan of Billings, Phil Fiske of Ryegate and Tom Madsen of Circle were chosen as Student Council members. Luncheon Arrangements Taken Over by Seniors The second year class has volun- teered to take the responsibility for the monthly school luncheons, fol- lowing a precedent established last year. Until last year faculty mem- bers served as responsible chairmen on committees with the help of stu- dents. Under the present plan they are merely advisers, if needed. Permanent Chairmen in Charge The management throughout the year will be in the hands of perma- nently appointed second year chair- men, who will direct the respective groups of first year students in the table setting, serving, kitchen work, and clean-up. The group observing for the month will always work on the luncheon, doing the actual work, just as the present second year stu- dents did last year. Miss Maxine Ruppel, class presi- dent, has appointed the following permanent chairmen: Sigfrid Helge- land, table setting and serving; Ei- leen Parks, kitchen; Clyde Davis, dishwashing, and Orville Thompson, clean-up. First Year Sub-Chairmen In order to make things run more smoothly, there is a first year sub- chairman working with each perma- nent chairman to relay information and orders to the group of workers. Dr. Dean, sponsor of the first year class, aids in apportioning the tasks. The serving of these all-school luncheons is a tradition of the school. To make it a success, a definite rou- tine must be followed. Each student has to work at some task when his appointed time comes, and strangely enough, students don't shirk the jobs. STUDENTS \GO WEST\ Miss Victoria Sampsel of Billings spent the early fall in Washington and touring other parts of the west coast. Others who traveled during the s u m m e r vacation were Miss Madge Petrie, a former student, now at St. Catherine's college, and Helen Essington, who motored to Washing- ton and British Columbia. Among the students who attended the San Francisco World's fair were Stanley Grayson, who hitch-hiked all of the way, Mary Worth, Eunice and Gerry Nelson, Bud Humiston, and Barbara Johnson. Mr. Bill Chase, accompanied by his sister, Miss Frances Chase, mo- tored to California on August 19, where they spent a two weeks vaca- tion at Los Angeles and the World's fair at San Francisco. Bill reports he was quite disappointed because California, far from being a semi- tropical land, was much like Nevada and other desert states. LUTHERANS ATTEND PARTY The Lutheran Students' associa- tion meeting, October 15, at the First English Lutheran church was at- tended by Kenneth Nelson, Dale Bryson, Ada Duell, Orville Thomp- son, Mildred and Eleanor Olson, Virginia Hedstrom, Mildred Loomis, Elaine Esmond, and Nellie Reukauf. A group of E. M. S. N. S. students will attend the L. S. A. convention, November 17, 18 and 19, at Bozeman. Dale Bryson was installed as vice president of the association. After a speech by Rev. Skindoly, head of the Rocky Mountain district, games were played and a lunch was served. All students who care to attend these meetings, which are held each month, will be welcome. If you can find a few spare min- utes for reading fiction, these are some of the new books you would like: Dorothy Canfield's \Seasoned Timber,\ \The Feathers\ by Allen Tate, \Tree of Liberty\ by Elizabeth Page, and \The Yearling\ by Mar- jorie Rawlings.
