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.

THE WESCOLITE Page 6 Western Montana College December 7,1973 Christmas Thoughts Some Christmas thoughts for everyone. Christmas is for children, and at this happy time of year, who is not a child at heart? —Prentice A Christmas greeting between friends is the handclasp of the heart. —North Christmas—when the heart’s gate opens wide to all mankind. — Lewis “ Merry Christmas!” he said, and that cheery greeting took off the edge of winter’s chill. — Dickens Those who bring sunshine to the lives of others cannot keep it from themselves. —Sir James Barrie If I keep a green bough in my heart, the singing bird will come. - -Chinese Proverb Winter Brings Dangers By DANA CARROLL As I travelled past the I.A. shop the other day, I saw a sign which said, “ Danger, icicles above” . I was reminded, unhappily, of the winter season which will soon be upon us with all its perils and tribulations. What’s so bad about winter—here are just a few examples. For instance, there’s the single (or married) fellow who doesn’t have time to look up because he’s busy watching a cute mini-skirted girl. Can you imagine what a surprise it would be for that poor fellow if he wandered under those lethal-looking icicles and was suddenly diverted from his hobby by an unwelcome bombardment from above? Nature seems out to “ get” mankind during winter. Aside from icicles there are snow-laden trees, slippery sidewalks and streets, and chilling cold. Is there anything mankind can do to combat this terrifying and awesome force? I doubt it! Even when all precautions are taken, accidents happen. When your best friend walks under the tree first and gets the full load of snow and you feel smug and secure as you follow, give up; you are defeated anyway, for there’s always a little more snow at the top, which couldn’t resist going down your neck. When you outsmart the slippery roads and sidewalks with ice cleats and snow shoes, give up; if you don’t fall, someone next to or behind you will and in the process bring you tumbling down, ice cleats and all. When you’re sure you’re warm enough (three pairs of long-johns, two sweaters, mufflers, mittens, heavy coat), the weather proceeds to make sure you’re warm enough. The temperature soars to an un­ sea sonal high of 48 degrees, above zero.... Ah, well, one is supposed to join if he can’t fight—I think I’d rather just sit home and grin and bear it.

KDP Holds Initiation Kappa Delta Pi’s Mu Phi chapter held initiation for nine new members on Wednesday, December 5. After a brief business meeting, initiation ceremonies were con­ ducted for the new members. The refreshment committee served a late afternoon snack to the new and old members as congratulations were offered to Mu Phi’s new initiates. New and old members are urged to attend meetings regularly in the coming quarter as many urgent business matters must be con­ sidered. KDP will have a speaker for its birthday party in the spring. Other matters needing consideration are the new publication called Mu Phi Musings, the National Convention to be held this spring in New Orleans, the Fund-raising plans for the KDP scholarship, and the new attendance system put into action this quarter. KDP wishes all past and present members, as well as the student body of WMC, a very Merry Christmas. ___________________ .JCPenney W e know what yo for Shop with Pe n n e y ‘s Catalog Dillon's Pull Lins Dept.
