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.

By STEVE HOWERY Dr. Douglas Treadway, Professor of Education and Dean of Regional Programs, will assume the presidential office on May 28. (Courtesy Dillon Tribune) Dr. Douglas M. Treadway, Dean ot Re­ gional Programs and Professor of Educa­ tion at East Oregon State College in La Grande, was announced on April 26 as Western’s new president. Thirty minutes following his interview with the Board of Regents, Treadway reported that he received a contract of employment from Commissioner of Education Irving Dayton. The two other finalists interviewed by the Regents were Dr. John L. Butler of Western New Mexico University and Dr. Larry S. Johnson of Metropolitan State College in Denver. Treadway was selected from an original field of 164 applicants from 44 states, the District of Columbia, Marshall and the Virgin Islands. Fifty-six members of the original field were from higher education administrations. The Presidential Search Committee narrowed the field to six semi­ finalists, and finally to the three finalists. The need for a new president was made last fall when the previous WMC president, Dr. Bob Thomas, announced his resignation. Deputy Commissioner of Education Carroll Krause has served as the school’s acting president upon Thomas’ departure on April 1. President-elect Treadway has a Ph.D. from Northwestern University and has done post-doctorial work in higher education management at Harvard University. He plans to move to Dillon as soon as possible with his wife Carol, his 15-year old son Marty, and his 19-year old daughter Chris. Treadway is scheduled to take office on May 28, where he will aid in the selection of the vice president and other staff positions.
