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.

Betty Christensen, Margie Hork, Betty Breiter and Valdean Osteros were the princesses of her court. Marilyn Routledge donated her red convertible to the queen and her court for the eventful ride around the gridiron to the throne which was gayly decorated and placed in the center of the playing field. A1 Fidler, captain of the team, gave the queen a resounding kiss which was an after-thought for the crown had been accidentally un­ accounted for. Pictures were taken while a large crowd gazed happily on the crown­ ing event. Moments later the crowd grew tense again as the teams came back on the field. A hard fought game won by Western made homecoming a huge success. Report Success Of M.E.A. Meet Mrs. Emerick and the four stu­ dents who attended the M.E.A. con­ vention in Great Falls report that they found the meeting both educa­ tional and interesting. The wet-chalk demonstration in the art section was a fine success, many people told Mrs. Emerick. The group, including Mr. Emer­ ick, drove to points of interest in and around Great Falls, with em­ phasis on things connected with Charles M. Russell, who lived there for the last part of his life. Art Club Observes C. M. Russell Week With Rest of State Charles M. Russell, cowboy artist, played a prominent part in Art club activities last week, Russell Memor­ ial week in Montana. Charles R. Soha, who was named after the famous artist, was the main speaker at the Art club meet­ ing on November 1, which was strictly a Russell program. His mother, as a girl, had worked for the Russells, Soha said, and was a close friend of theirs for many years, helping to type the manuscript of Russell’s book, Trails Plowed Un­ der.

The residence hall was cleverly decorated for the occasion with streamers and latice work of the traditional school colors, orange and black. At one end of the hall on a green tuft of grass was placed the throne of the homecoming queen; goal posts were placed behind the throne. Bright orange M’s at the other end of the hall completed the theme. Hugh Simmons, assisted by “M” club members, had charge of the decorations. B i l l W a r r e n ’ s orchestra provided the music for dancing. Bud Trask, Bud Malee, and Alfred Fidler comprised the orchestra committee. With the pro­ ceeds from the dance, the “M” club plans to buy jackets for their mem­ bers. the association. •> The Congress serves to focus attention on national and world problems of the United States, and is attended by some 3,000 j outstanding businessmen and in­ dustrialists. This year, for the first time, the NAM will be host to 49 college students, one from each state, and the District of I Columbia.

Campus Tuesday night, Nov. 1 at 8:00 p. m., the campus of Western was hum­ ming with activity. This was the evening for the first showing of the campus movies. This activity will continue throughout the year, each Tuesday and Saturday evening. The first feature was not up to par with what the student activity com­ mittee would like, but better pic­ tures are promised. Movies chosen to be presented before Christmas vacation are: Captain Kid, Four Feathers, The Spoilers, and Topper. Dick Mann, who investigated the possibilities of movies on the cam­ pus, will operate the projector from the auditorium balcony. In the future the student activity committee will handle the selection of shows and will set up a fund for all surplus profits to be used for student benefits. Gargoyle Club Room To Be Redecorated At the Gargoyle meeting last Thursday evening, plans were made to study the dialect of different na­ tionalities for a fall quarter project. Suggestions were also made for “dolling up” the club room; new curtains are to be made, and the best furniture from the prop room is to be attractively arranged in the Gargoyle room. The Gargoyle mem­ bers read the one-act play, “Two Crooks and a Lady.” Either this play or “Late Delivery,” another one-act play, will be presented by the Gargoyles for an assembly pro­ gram. Election was held for the remain­ ing officers of the club. Clarence Brammer was elected try-out chair­ man; Ed Tillis, stage manager; and Ted Feldman, business manager. Prospective new members will be asked to do the necessary five hours stage work before their admission •j to the club.
