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.

The Tumbleweed, Tuesday, March 8, 1977 — 3 Carroll Speech Team \...Very Proud of Them \ The C a rr o ll College Forensic Team continued to make school history at the Boise State Invitational and Montana State Cham­ pionship Speech Tourna­ ments, held concurrently on February 11-13, in Boise. Competing with 26 teams from throughout the Northwest, the CC crew brought home eight trophies, upping its total for the year to twenty-two, a number unprecedented in Carroll history. The team managed to dominate all Montana schools in individual events, taking three state cham­ pionships. Peggy Ryan, junior from Townsend, cap­ tured the State Interpreta­ tion Championship after only three rounds of com­ petition and after two sub­ sequent rounds walked off with the third-place trophy for the Boise Invitational contest. Greg Mullowney, junior from Butte, took the State Oratory Championship and, teamed with talented Nicki Verploegen, junior from Havre, won the State Duet Interpretation Cham­ pionship and the first-place Duet Interpretation award for the Boise Invitational. As if this was not enough, Mullowney received the second-place State award for Expository Speaking. Henry Leake, senior from Helena, was awarded the second-place State trophy for After Dinner Speaking, while Frank Clinch, freshman from Helena, received the third-place State award for Interpreta­ tion. Junior Debate teams of Mark Lamoure and Chuck Duus and Frank Clinch and Kelly Klem compiled win- loss records of 5-3 and 4-4, respectively, adding nine tournament points to Car- roll’s total. Harry Smith, coach of the CC Speech Team, said, “ In the past four years, Carroll has had some very good forensics teams. None, however, have come close to equalling the perfor­ mance of this, the 1976-1977 squad. I would sum them up by using the word Saints.' They have great team and school spirit, outstanding attitudes and immense imagination. They accept victories and defeats with nobility and win many, many trophies. Saints: I’m very proud of them.” The Forensic Team will wrap up its schedule with the Phi Kappa Delta Meet in Seattle during March and the Big Sky Tournament in Missoula during April. Group Interaction by Bette Wingenbach Many of you have heard this name mentioned, and possibly wondered what it is. Group Interaction is a group started by students to increase interaction on campus at a deeper level. It was started to increase an awareness of different sub­ jects we all come in contact with, and to invite people to share their experiences and insights with each other at these meetings. It is still in its developing stages. Our subject for the past three meetings has been Sexuality: Various Aspects. We’ve touched on feelings involved in break­ ing off a relationship, venereal disease, hor­ niness, making love, and other aspects brought up in the small groups. Our structure so far has been to try role-playing at the beginning of the meetings, acting out cer­ tain situations dealing with the subject. After discuss- each scenario partially in a large group, we then break into small groups to discuss and exchange feel­ ings more in depth, each group having a student facilitator. We meet on Sundays at 7:00 in Guad Lounge. March 6th we discussed the topic for March' 13th. Other subjects will be dealt with in the future at student request. -Everyone is more than welcome to drop down to the Lounge and see what this is all about. If you have any questions at all, get in touch with Mark Sevier, Jim Taylor, or Bette Wingenbach. It Happened One Night by Appassionato Schulz The Second Story Cinema will be presenting “It Hap­ pened One Night” at 7 and 9:15 p.m. on Mach 7 - 9. The film, starring Claudette Colbert and Clark Gable is one of the great comedy classics of the Thirties. At the 1934 Academy Awards “It Happend One Night” received all the major awards winning for best picture, best director (Frank Capra, one of the most brilliant directors of the period), best adaptation (by Robert Tiskin, a fre­ quent collaborator with Frank Capra), best actress (Claudette Colbert), and best actor (Clark Gable). This feat was not equalled until 42 years later when “ One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest” swept the Academy Awards. The plot involves a runaway heiress (Claudette Colbert) traveling incognito from Miami to New York. She meets a newspaper reporter (Clark Gable) who has just been fired for im- pudency and they decide to travel together. Ultimately the two are reduced to hitch-hiking and spending toe night in tourist cabins. In one of the most famous scenes from the film Gable hangs a blanket (which he nick names the “Walls of Jericho” ) between their beds (separate twins, of course). One reviewer urged the movie goer to “note...the skill with which the daring yet utterly inof­ fensive bedroom incidents are done, the dissertation on the ethics of hitch­ hiking...” Later, complica­ tions ensue when Colbert believes Gable has deserted her; in good time, however, the “ Walls of Jericho” came a tumblin down. “It Happened One Night” had a profound effect on several aspects of American life: the bottom dropped out of the un­ derw e a r market when Gable wore no T-shirt, the Miami-New York bus run became deluged with young girls searching for their own Clark Gable’s, men imitated the Gable mustache, and most impor­ tantly toe movie firmly es­ tablished Gable as a star. When the film was released on February 23, 1934, The New York Times movie reviewer wrote: “Clark Gables’ at his best, yet in winning new honors for himself, he steals nothing from Claudette. The picture has a rare quality of camaraderie with the audience — permitting those watching it to share toe experiences of the fun of the players. Skillfully directed by Frank Capra, whose insight into character relationship and reactions is brillant evident in the final analysis.” The magic is still there, indulge and enjoy yourself for a paltry $1.25 at the Second Story Cinema.
