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.
Western Montana College of Education Welcome to the Campus, New Students WESCOLITE Volume XXVIII. Dillon, Montana, Wednesday, January 18, 1950. Number 7 LINDY ESTES Who has returned to the Bulldog lineup. Wescolite Reporter Interviews Fred Searle On New York Trip Fred Searle, one of our students, recently returned from New York where he was a student delegate to the Fifty-Fourth Congress of Amer ican Industry. Students from each state and the District of Columbia were guests of the National Association of Manu facturers at the convention. The convention lasted only three days and since such a great number of activities were carried out, Fred said he was busy until late in the evening every day. Most of the time was spent listening to speeches. To name all the things experi enced by the group would take much time and space; and so Fred told us some of the most impressive events of the convention. The first evening he was in New j York, Fred watched the Old Gold Amateur Hour being televised. The next day, the group made a trip to Flushing Meadows where they heard a portion of a plenary session of the United Nations. That evening, in the Waldorf-Astoria Hotel, Fred was a guest of Todd Doran, Operational Manager of the Butte District of Montana Power Company. He participated, the following day, in a panel discussion on the subject i “Opportunity Unlimited,” of which John W. Studebaker, Vice President and Chairman of the Editorial Board, of Scholastic magazine, was mod erator. That evening, Fred said, he quite by coincidence ate dinner with Charles H. Stebbins who was a member of the first and second State Legislatures of Montana.

Leslie has resumed his teaching position at Western. For the past quarter Mr. Leslie has been doing post graduate work at the University of Colorado, where he declared his intention of taking the doctor’s degree. “The history department of the University,” Mr. Leslie said, “is one of the best in the country.” The pro fessors in the departm ent of history aim to make it on a par with the University of Chicago. The graduate school which Mr. Leslie attended accepts only forty students in order to give the personal attention need ed to each student. While in Boulder Mr. Leslie took courses in Modern Europe, history- ography, political theory, and a four hour seminar course. Commenting on his return to Western, Mr. Leslie said enthusiastically, “I’m glad to be back.” Faculty Attends Meetings in Butte Professor O. K.

Chanticleers Initiate Four New Members Chanticleers initiated four new members into the club at a meet ing Monday night at the home of Miss Albertson with Rosemary Lane as assistant hostess. Those taking the oath of the Chanticleer club were Mardell Lane, Donna Carrigan, Don Payton, and Lyle Berg. Following the initiation refresh ments were served.

The student body would like to take this opportunity to express its sympathy to Mr. Osborne who has wrenched his knee and to wish him quick convalescence. Students Furnish Fine Entertainment Between Halves The students of W.M.C.E. have been entertained at half-time of home games by very capable stu dent performers. A peppy band, which plays at every game, pretty majorettes, tumblers, and basketball mimics have done an excellent job at the past games. Jean Ann Fisher, who has done several solo appearances with her twin batons, teamed up with Helen Jones at our last game to make the performance most enjoyable. John Sanner, John Osburn, and Sylvester Meade are the tumblers who went through the difficult routine with amazing effect. The band with their snappy marches and several men students with their hilarious interpretation of old-time basketball have made the home games even more enjoyable. After philosophy class the follow ing was heard in the snack bar: Wonder who got the three dollars for the new name, or has Mr. O’Neill published the results? Pres.
