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.

I believe very few teachers would answer this question by saying yes. Teachers who are about to enter the profession have a great chal­ lenge. Although you may teach only a few children, the knowledge they derive from your teaching will affect their future lives and the future of America. Can you imagine a more satisfying feeling than watching young minds grow in knowledge and truth under your guidance and teaching? Teachers have a great responsibil­ ity to the youth of America, but it is a responsibility that every man and woman entering the p r o f e s s i o n should be proud to assume. We should not stop our learning after our college years, but we should strive to expand our know­ ledge so as to aid the lives of our children in this complex society. We should not accept teaching passively but try day by day to become better teachers. We as teachers are privileged to have this opportunity of instructing young minds. It is up to us to make our teaching career a success. —Lois O’Keefe Confucius says: Man who works on hill isn’t on level. Page 2— THE WESCOLITE Wednesday, May 16, 1956 Intervarsity Plans For Spring Retreat Plans for the Intervarsity Spring Retreat were discussed at a special meeting Thursday, May 10. Guest directors of this year’s retreat will be Rosalind Binker, Paul Byer, and Merit Brown, all of Washington State. Participants in the worship ser­ vice were David Oursland who sang “It’s In My Heart,” and Peggy Keyes, who gave the scripture readings. The discussion and reports of the final books of the Bible were concluded by the president who summarized the entire book and evaluated its highlights and controlling theme. Mary Hoge is chairman of the In­ tervarsity picnic which will be the final meeting of the year. The time and place of the picnic will be an­ nounced soon. It Is Interesting to Note That the Chinook has been pub­ lished every year since 1906, when it made its initial appearance, except for two years during World War II. That the 1956 Chinook is promised for distribution on Tuesday, May 22 and that every regularly enrolled student is entitled to a book. That the first student publication was a monthly literary magazine called “The Monmal.” That the first campus newspaper, “The Montanomal,” came out in 1923. The paper changed its name to Wescolite in 1949 when the name of the institution was changed from Montana State Normal College to Western Montana College of Educa­ tion. That a Public Speaking Club was organized in 1906. That the College became a mem­ ber of the Inter-Collegiate Oratorical Association of Montana in 1909 and entered its first contest. That during the next three years the college was represented by two contestants, one of them Lora Max­ well, winning second place in the State. That the first Go Day occurred in 1906 and we have a Go Day each year since. Now we have a summer Go Day also.

SUE TRBOVICH TO SUCCEED MRS. DRESEN AS CLUB PRESIDENT Sue Trbovich, a freshman from Butte, was elected president of the Chanticleers for the coming year. Sue succeeds Mrs. Helen Dresen who spent a busy year in the club. Under Mrs. Dresen’s leadership, the club moved forth in all direc­ tions. Some of the projects accomp­ lished were a float in the Homecom­ ing parade, a publications banquet, a skit in Vodvil, and all members of the club contributed their time and effort to the Wescolite. Sue Trbovich has been active dur­ ing her freshman year here at WMCE. She is business manager of the Wescolite, and she took a big part in Vodvil. Sue was also one of the eight candidates for Miss West­ ern. Education Staff Publishes Article In the April issue of the “Mon­ tana Education” magazine the article “At Western — Teacher Education Faces the Future” was published. The article, written by the Educa­ tion staff, including Mrs. Zella Flores, Dr. Harold B. Erickson, and Dr. J. R. Cumming, explained that Western has fulfilled the responsi­ bility of educating teachers success­ fully for the past sixty years. Many problems were discussed in the article such as encouraging stu­ dents with high intelligence to be­ come teachers, and the ever present problem of salaries. Teachers agree that a broad liberal education and a good foundation in professional education are necessary to become a successful teacher. The trends in teacher certification at the present time are towards a four-year college program for ele­ mentary teachers as well as for sec­ ondary. Montana’s citizens deserve the highest type of teachers for their children and Western has been meet­ ing these needs for superior teachers, the article points out. Journalism class: Why don’t you drink coffee anymore? Geary Moran: I can’t afford it! (This should be a warning to all of you contemplating matrimony). Poor students at Western can’t find a seat at the Snack Bar any­ more. The teachers have them all.
