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.

He presently is head o f the Division o f Natural Sciences and Mathematics. Although he was born in California, Mr. Murray was raised in Anaconda, Montana and attended the University o f M ontana where he earned two degrees. When I spoke w ith him he stated that he w ent on to higher education \.. .because I was interested in what I do and wanted to do it better. ” The list o f institutions which he attended for extra training include such schools as Stanford University, Washington State University, and New York University. The ensuing lines are insights to several questions I asked Mr. Murray only recently. Q: What do you feel should be the values of a Christian college? A: Well I think it's multi-faceted in this regard. It should help you in choosing your value system which is most appropriate to your lifestyle. I think it should aid you in your religious conviction, be you a Catholic or not. I think you should gain from it the ability to get along and react with other people. I think you should form up an academic background upon which you can build futures.

ACCEPTED TO OPTOMETRY SCHOOL Barbara Bishke, Pacific University, S.F., Cal. Pat Stibell, Pacific University, S.F., Cal reflective values. I think over the four year span there should be a maturity of mind that aids you in a philosophical outlook of the way you want to spend the rest of your life. Q: How do you think students are most influenced in deciding their values? A: I would say first and foremost they would be most influenced by their parents. I would put the next two in almost the same position. I think you are influenced by your association with those in your peer group, plus your association with those in academia. And then I think also that you are influenced by material itself. Q: To what degree is a student responsible for his/her own learning? A: Everyone is responsible for learning on his/her own. But I think with good guidance and instruction it's easier on you to make this decision for yourself. All learning is self learning ... but it is best done in a correct environ­ ment where you have a little competition, certainly, ... good teaching and good advising. Q: Do you think students should be able to make deci­ sions concerning their living habits? A: I think this is a decision which has to be made in con­ cert with the administration and the ASSC where both sides of the problem can be addressed and some rational compromise arrived at. I think that the general rule is that this is not a problem. . .only in the minds of two dif­ ferent groups. But there is always the bad apple in the barrel who will goof up for everybody. I do say, inregard to ‘cohabitation’ in the dormitories, there are times when the temptation may be an overpowering one, and we would like to avoid it if we can. Q: What has been the most fulfilling aspect of teaching at Carroll for you? A: Gee, the students whom I’ve watched grow, by far, has been most fulfilling. There is something outstanding about the feeling of looking out at a class and knowing they got what you were saying. It’s great to be affiliated with young minds. . because they're quick. So you throw out information which you have been trained in, and you watch them gobble it up. It’s very gratifying to watch them pick ut up and run with it. I think in all teaching that’s where it’s at. I enjoyed talking with Mr. Murray because o f his a t­ titude towards people and his job position here for these several years. He feels there are many great things going for this school and that it has a great future. What I felt was most im portant was that he likes to teach here because o f the clientele. Here’s one man who appreciates the students, folks. Go talk to him some time.

After some coffee and a short chat with his secretary he gets down to the brass tacks of his work, to assess the project for the week. The activity of the col­ lege would not run smoothly if if weren't for this man's hard work in the development office. He uses his knowledge and experience to try to raise funds for the college. Russ has apparently been quite busy, having worked several years ago on the initial funding for the P.E. com­ plex and the subsequent programs to keep it running in the future. The project which is of utmost importance at this time is_the library fund drive, a building we greatly need. The methods with which he woos contributors are the constant appeals to their senses. He feels that too many fund raisers fail because of the lack of askers, even though there may be plenty of givers. To Mr. Ritter, travel is an integral part of his job. Dur­ ing the active part of the year he is out of town almost every week. This outside work is to contact alumni group in major cities across the country to keep them abreast of the college activities and, of course, to tap generous grads for needed funds. The advent of spring brought with it the prospect of a new responsibility, for the Helena native was elected to the city commissions. As of yet, though, he doesn't know whether he will serve a two or four year term. This will be determined at one of the first meetings by drawing straws, because this is the first year for all the commis­ sion members. What seems to be the major problem which the com­ mission with according to Russ was the lack of leadership. This was noticed when the previous commis­ sions’s decison were left incomplete for the city staff to carry out. Russ hopes to get a large input from the local population in order to make it easier for members of the commission to make decisions. He feels, for example, if someone complains about the garbage collection the commision must decede if it is a viable complaint. When this has been determined they must draft a plan to cor­ rect the problem and assert leadership in getting the job done. When Rus was asked to run he was assured that the meetings of the commission would be on Monday nights. This fits in well with his present schedule. Most of his out of town ventures take up the later part of the week and some weekends. Therefore, barring any crisis, he plans to be in attendance at all the commission meetings. As far as research on commission problems he will have to cut out some of his time spent with his family and - or at the college. But he says someone must do the job and in doing it anyone most likely must change his - her lifestyle a bit. faculty i . ri 1 J al murray: a profile
