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.

Students Aren’t Fascists, Poll Shows Piaster Pit closed It’s happened again, this time on the Oregon State University (OSU) campus. But for a change, the results show not everybody is a reactionary as some pollsters would have us believe. Fifty OSU students were recent­ ly shown an excerpt from the Declaration of Independence and asked whether they agreed with it. According to the results published in the Barometer, the campus paper, 41 of the students said they agreed with the paragraph which talks about “the Right of the People to alter or abolish” a wayward govern­ ment. The results run counter to several polls of recent years in which people asked if excerpts read to them were authored by The Guevara rather than Thomas Jefferson. In the OSU poll, in which only two students disagreed and seven were undecided, over half said they had read a similar state­ ment elsewhere. Nearly one quarter of the respondees even correctly identified the excerpt as from the Declaration of Independence. Water Carnival is December 7 BY ANN BAUGHMAN Participation in women’s intra­ murals has definitely been lack­ ing in past years. However the opportunities and benefits of such a program are numerous. To spark interest and participation in intramurals, the first intramu­ ral “Water Carnival” is planned for December 7 from 1:00 p.m. to 3:00 p.m. Carroll College has a beautiful P.E. facility which includes a twenty-five yard pool. To make use of this pool, the carnival will include swim races, funny dives, and relays. Because the purpose of this activity is to build participation, prizes will be given both to the team with the highest accumulated points and the team with the most participants. Teams will be made up of floors and it is hoped that off-campus calendar NOV. 20, WED., 12:00 NOON Bicentennial Luncheon, Small Dining Room.

Entry forms for teams can be picked up from the R.A. on your floors, Jeannine Brown, or Connie Kelleher. These entry forms must be turned in to any of the people above by December 2. Set your teams together and practice. This is not limited in any way to those who are competative swimmers, but open to all Carroll women. Come participate or cheer your teams and let’s take advantage of what intramurals can offer. . . “a good time and fun competition.” The Music Department’s ‘Plas­ tic Pit’ has been closed down by the Fire Marshall. Since there is no immediate and cheap solution to the problem, the Music Department Christmas Concert, scheduled on the Fall Semester Calendar for December 11 and 12th, will not be held. Instead, the College Choir and the Carrolleers with several faculty members, will join with the St. Helena Cathedral Parish in an Advent observance. The service, to take place in the Cathedral on December 7, will include music, Scripture and contemporary ex­ pression in an attempt to create an awareness of waiting and preparation for the feast of the Nativity. The time of the service will be announced in the Campus News after Thanksgiving. If god had wanted women in the kitchen. She would have given them aluminum hands. - ‘SHE’, a Pakistani magazine SPORTS The Tumbleweed wishes to congratulate Captain Crusty and Haugh Flash, who were married last month in Two Dot. After returning from their honeymoon in Alcatraz, the loving couple will continue to set the sports world afire next issue. Happy Thanksgiving. Turkeys! To the Students and Faculty of Carroll College Thanksgiving is just around the corner! This means many of us will be going home via air, bus, trains, or car. Due to my past travel opportunities in all four categories of transportation, it seems to me that driving one’s own car alone or even with friends is most hazardous. This isn’t due to the quantity or quality of the passengers, but to the added attention the driver seems to think he has to give to each occupant of the car. Before continuing with this theme, please allow me to say that I’m not giving advice on how to drive. Each individual has their own unique way of operating a motor vehicle. What I would like to do is suggest a little information on driving that will hopefully ensure your safe journey home and back to Carroll College. This information seems valid and to the point since it comes from a good source: DRIVER’S GOLDEN RULES 10 Commandments 1. Thou shalt hold only the steering-wheel. 2. Thou shalt not make unto thee a God of thy. horsepower. 3. Thou shalt not take the center lane in vain. 4. Remember the driver behind to helD him pass thee. 5. Honor thy father and thy mother and all other passengers. 6. Thou shalt not kill. 7. Thou shalt not commit inebriated driving. 8. Thou shalt not steal; not thy neighbor’s eyes with thy headlights, nor his ear with thy horn, nor his enjoyment with thy litter. 9. Thou shalt not bear false witness with thy signals. 10. Thou shalt not covet thy neighbor’s right-of-way. Source of information: DRIVER’S TESTING CENTER, Helena, Montana .. These rules of etiquette for proper driving seem to be a very important part in the insured safety of drivers everywhere. So please, as you drive, try to remember to watch out for the other guy, in hope he is watching out for you. Thank you for taking time out to read this article. Hope to see you all back here December 1st in one piece. Oh, before I forget, HAPPY THANKSGIVING! A FELLOW CARROLL COLLEGE STUDENT Little Theatre Swings ,nt0 The Carroll College Little Thea­ tre has three Bicentennial drama prospects in the wings. The first play, in rehearsal now, is “American Primitive”, the life and letters of John and Abigail Adams. This play will be present­ ed December 4-7 at 7:30 in the Little Theatre. In February, the Little Theatre will conduct a Reader’s Theatre project, “John Browns Body,” which is set in the Civil War era. “Body” will be under the direction of Dorothy Harper and Harry Smith. Dave Haney will direct the April Bicenntenial production, which is a contemporary musical, “You’re A Good Man, Charlie Brown.” “American Primitive,” under the direction of Mrs. Harper, deals with the opinions and relationships that lead up to the Constitutional Convention and the Declaration of Independ­ ence. “Primitive” does not give only the male’s views of the condition of the country, but also the women’s. For Abigail Adams was an early advocate of human civil rights and women’s liberation. On the subject of human rights she wrote to her husband, “I wish there was not a slave in the province. It always appeared a most iniquitous scheme to me, to fight ourselves for what we are Action daily robbing, from those who have as good a right to freedom as we.” and about women’s liberation she wrote her husband thereby, “I desire you would remember the ladies. If attention is not paid to the ladies we are determined to foment a rebellion and will not hold ourselves bound by any laws in which we have no representation.” William Gibbs, the playwright, did an outstanding job of, not only showing the strong sense of responsibility, that was felt, but also the great humor of this era. Many scenes throughout the play so the wit and humor shared by both John and Abigail. The romantic side of one of the great heroes of the American Revolution can also be seen in this outstanding production. John Adams wrote to his wife about his life: “To look back and recollect the adventures of myself and my wife and daughter and sons. I see a kind of romance which, a little embellished with fiction, would equal anything in the days of chivalry.” Mrs. Harper summed up her views of this play when she said, “I feel that this show makes history come alive in a very personal way when we study the kind of people who begin a dream.”
