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.

Built to exact scale, the Montana stage is made of balsawood and sheet bronze and is complete in ev­ ery detail to the wheelbrakes and last singletree. Simon has also erected the new gallows equipped with rope and hangman’s knot—also jewel size and merely suggesting the fate of “hoss” thieves and road agents of Montana’s past. The background map of Bea­ verhead, Madison and Gallatin coun­ ties was drawn by Simon. Research to fix locations and names of the old railroads of the cradle of Montana in these three counties was made by Don Shaw and Dan Sweeney. Sweeney also fur­ nished the background materials and Charles Russell sketches. Other members of the library methods class under Walter Mc­ Guire, librarian, assembled the bib­ liography which ties with places and events indicated on the map. Betty Bray, Betty Lugar and Doris May berry assembled the bibliography on local history from the Dillon li­ brary.

Mrs. Rose Armour President of MEA Student Local Urges Membership The Montana Education associa­ tion is an organization dedicated to the welfare and improvement of our school system. Western Montana College of education has as its prime object the training of young people to become efficient workers in this system. It is fitting, therefore, and logical that there be a live and en­ thusiastic local organization on the campus. “What is there in it for me?” you ask. In answer we might say, “Just about what you put into it.” But let us go farther. It offers enriching and broadening experiences such as skill in cooperative effort; inter- Recital Scheduled by McFadden and Gable A duo-recital of piano and voice is being presented by Ralph McFadden and Bertram Gable of the Music de­ partment next Tuesday night, De­ cember 5, at 8 o’clock. Mr. McFadden will offer a group of three selections by Mozart, the French impressionist DeBussey and the Hungarian Dohuanyi. Selections from 18th Century com­ posers have been chosen by Mr. Ga­ ble as well as three songs of Don Quixote to his Dulcina by Ravel. He will conclude with a modern group.

Jean Sudan and Cliff Simpson were the second best citizens as acclaimed by a commit­ tee of faculty members and students. Highly imaginary, the costumes ranged from Wolf Gal followed by her retinue of “wolves” to the 1920 Queen of Dogpatch. And despite the absence of Marryin’ Sam, most of A1 Capp’s characters were present. At the intermission following the crowning of the Queen and King of Dogpatch, Kangaroo Court was held to punish all violators of Twirp Sea­ son rules, which was conducted the week prior to the WAA dance, by the Freshman class. of pertinent subjects; acquiring in­ formation in many of the things with which education concerns itself; and many other democratic practices which teachers find are now and al­ ways will be valuable. The dollar, which is the student fee, brings to the member the organizations publi­ cation, “Montana Education,” and if one must measure all value by money, this periodical can hold its own with other publications.

It has cost the teacher members a great deal of ef­ fort and money. The student body of today will step into teaching with all of these accumulated benefits set up for them. Why not show one’s appreciation of these things by giv­ ing the Association the moral sup­ port of a live student local organi­ zation? In conclusion, active participation in your professional organization is appropriate, loyal, and it pays divi­ dends. ROSE ARMOUR, President, Student MEA Local.
