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.

page six Western Montana Offers Workshops, Courses in Summer Curriculum by Chuck Stauffer DILLON -- Forty-eight traditional courses and 52 specialized workshops, in­ cluding 17 offerings in computer science, are combined in Western Montana Col­ lege’s 1985 Summer Session, which opens June 17 and continues through August 16. Summer School Dean Rex Myers said emphasis will again focus cn programs leading to master degrees in education for both elementary and secondary teachers. A number of lower and upper division courses, however, are being offered for be­ ginning students or those completing un­ dergraduate programs, as well as non­ degree students in special interest areas. The nine-week agenda affords three scholar options: First-half Session, June 17-July 16; Second-half, July 17-August 16, or the entire term. The majority of classes, Myers pointed out, are scheduled Mondays through Wed- nesdays, followed by workshops Thursdays through Saturdays. Preceding the Summer Session opening are a trio of workshops in art and ornithol­ ogy to be presented June 10-14 at the Birch Creek Outdoor Education Center, 20 miles northwest of Dillon. Also listed as major workshop attractions are: --Computers in Education and Aero­ space Technology, June 17-28. --Third annual Suzuki Music Institute, June 17-21. --Seventh annual Rural Education Insti­ tute, June 18-21. --School Maintenance, June 26-28 --Outdoor Education at Birch Creek, July 7-13 and 14-20. --American Studies Week, July 15-19, featuring Artists’ Blacksmithing, Basic Handweaving, Historic Preservation, and the second annual Western Montana Writers Conference. Senate Active in Summer By STEVEHOWERY With Student President Bob Crumley being stationed in Dillon over the summer months, ASWMC activities are projected to remain fairly constant. President Crumley noted that his major functions of the summer months will in­ clude securing the 1985-86 senate budget, revising the Day Care contract, and fur­ thering the development of an Outdoor Recreation Program. Also, remodeling of the Student Union Building is anticipated in the near future, with the Game Room, Student Senate, and Legal Services offices being the prime targets. “I’m hoping to expand and remodel the Senate Office so that it is divided into several smaller offices by portable part­ itions,” stated Crumley. “ It will add con­ venience to the Business Manager and Secretary jobs and will give the president, vice president, and senators a much more professional look.” A final project of the ASWMC is the distribution of coupon booklets which give student discounts at the local designated establishments.
