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 EBALAICA EAGLE IMPROVEMENTS AT SCHOOL OF MINES CHEMISTRY AND METALLURGY HALL ABOUT COMPLETED; COST $250,000 Main Hall and Mill Building Remod- eled; Gymnasium Building Made Over Into New Engineering Hall; Other Improvements. When the Montana State School of Mines at Butte opened a few days ago, it was ready to give its students the finest quarters and equipment in the history of the institution. The badly crowded conditions of the last few years have disappeared and the men in attendance found plenty of space in their classrooms and laboratories. Tbe completion of the new $250,- 000 chemistry and metallurgy hall, and the remodeling of Old Main Hall and the Mill building have ac- complished this result. When the task of making over the old gym- nasium into the new Engineering Hall, work that is now well under way, is completed, there will be abundant space for the courses in mechanical drawing and mechani- cal design. These oourses are the only ones that will be given under cramped conitions this fall. The past summer has been one of great activity on the School of Mines campus and a large force of men has been employed there ever since the first of June. There is still much to be done and this force will not be cut down materially for a month or more. In this time the basement of Old Main Hall has been remodeled to provide quarters for the physics de- partment, for the freshman mechani- cal drawing, for store rooms, and for locker rooms for the men. The Mill building has been completely made over, the western half being con- verted into commodious quarters for the courses in assaying with an even dozen new furnaces installed, while the eastern half is being made the location of a new gravity type concen- trator and oil flotation plant capable of handling all kinds of Montana ores. In ddition the chemistry and metallurgy hall has been made ready for complete occupation, giving the Montana technical college the finest structure for its purposes in the northwest. It is expected that the engineering hall will be finished about the close of the first semester. It will provide four large draughting rooms, 60 feet long by 40 feet wide, and office space for the professors in this department. Should a new gymnasium be erected, and there is every reason to believe that one is in prospect at no very distant date, Montana Mines will be able to care for a student body of from 250 to 300 and to care for them as well as can be done at any mining school in the United States. The funds for these improvements are coming very largely from the five million dollar educational bond issue voted at the elections of 1920. With all buildings completed and with the campus graded and beautified as is In prospect, the institution will be one of which Montanans may well be proud. ' Of the new buildings the chemistry and metallurgy hall stands out as by far the most important. With it in operation, only a few institutions in the United States will have as good accomodations and facilities for the study of metallurgy and none of these few will be any better situated as regards the number of students who may be given instruction. Erec- tion of this hall was started in 1919 but financial difficulties, the failure of a contractor, strikes, and slowness In delivering equipment have much delayed its completion. Last spring the professors in this department moved into their offices and some of the lecture rooms were used. The laboratory work, however, was given In the old quarters in Old Main Hall. But now all the lecture rooms, the laboratories, weighing rooms, stock rooms, and other equipment are available and will be used at once. The change to this new building will mark the beginning of a new period of expansion that should do much to add to the already high standing of Montana's technical school among mining men all over the United States. In construction the chemistry and metallurgy hall embodies all of the latest proven satisfactory ideas for handling the subjects to be taught there. It is a modern steel, concrete and brick, fireproof edifice, 126 feet BILLINGS POLYTECHNIC IISTITUTE Offers to the Young Men and Women of Montana HIGH SCHOOL COURSES FIRST YEAR OF COLLEGE WORK COMPLETE ENGINEERING COURSES Including Auto -Tractor, Radio SCHOOL OF COMMERCE COURSE Equipping for Business and Civil Service VOCAL AND INSTRUMENTAL ETC.

The architecture is plain, those who plan- ned it preferring to put money into utility rather than adornment. The exterior is noticeable for the unusu- ally large number and size of the windows, these insuring the maxi- mum amount of light in every la- boratory and classroom. The main entrance faces the south, overlooRing a long stretch of the valley of Silver Bow creek. There are also entrances on each of the other sides and, in ad- dition, a tunnel leading to Main Hall so that no student need be out in bad weather while changing classes. The roof is covered with Montana copper shingles, this hall being the first pub- lic edifice in the state to be so pro- tected. The hallways throughout the build- ing are wide and commodious. Pol- ished maale-terrazo floors make work easy for the janitors and add to the fireproof qualities of the structure. The woodw,prk is of dark oak. The stairways wind around the well of a freight elevator that runs from the basement to the attic. There are washrooms on each floor. Most of the first floor is given over to the courses in metallurgy. On It are the big general metallurgy la- boratory, the metallurgy laboratory lecture room, the physical and elec- tro chemistry laboratory, two suites of offices for the metallurgy profes- sors, and the metallurgy draughting room. The general laboratory will care for a hundred students at one time while the physical and electro chemistry laboratory accommodates sixty. The students will work at desks of the very latest style, having at their command gas, compressed air, electricity, hot and cold water, gas and electric high temperature plates, high class balances and scales and other equipment too numerous to mention. The desks are exactly the same as those placed last year in the new two million dollar Sterling Chemistry laboratory at Yale univer- sity and they were made for this building by E. H. Sheldon' & Co., of Muskegon, Mich., who also furnish- ed most of the other furniture used. They are specially treated to resist the action of acids, the same being true of all the drains. Finely con- structed porcelain hoods, connected with big ventilating fans in the attic will carry away all noxious fumes. The offices are well supplied with large desks, sectional bookcases, fil- ing cabinets, filing cases, document cases, and instrument cases, all de- signed to expedite office work of any kind. The second floor is devoted entire- ly to chemistry. Here are located the general chemistry laboratory for the freshmen accommodating a hun- dred students at one time, the quan- titative chemistry laboratory for the sophomores accommodating sixty stu- dents, a convenient stock room for these laboratories, the weighing room for 20 at a time, the main chemistry lecture room which seats 125, a smaller chemistry lecture room and two suites of offices for the pro- fessors, each containing a main of- fice, a private laboratory, and a prep- aration room. The feature of thb main lecture room is the lecturer's desk, a costly piece of furniture so designed that any type of experiment may be carried out before a class without loss of time. In addition to the usual gas, electricity, compressed air, and water, there are arrange- ments for handling all of the more common gases. There are also two large water tanks, one so set and cov- ered with.glass that students may see the exact 'workings of tests made un- der water. In the basement there are the phy- sical metallurgy laboratory, the gen- eral and special supply rooms, the in- dustrial chemistry laboratory, a re- search laboratory with its office and balance room, an emergency labora- tory, the main wash room, the stu- dents' locker room and shower baths, faculty shower baths, and the en- gine room and machine shop. The physical metallurgy laboratory is something of a novelty as only a few of the larger institutions give courses in this subject. The school of mines at Columbia University in New York is generally conceded to have the best equipment along this line and the Montana Mines laboratory is a duplication of the one at Columbia. It will make possible a wide range of teats on smelted metals hitherto im- possible anywhere in Montana be- cause of lack of the necessary instru- ments. A feature of the stock rooms is the large concrete vault, 36 feet long by 20 feet wide, where especially valuable chemicals and instruments may be kept under a combination lock. The industrial chemistry labor- atory is not yet set up but in time will be fitted out with leaching vats, electrolytic tanks, electric furnaces and other machines. The attic floor at present is to be used as a storeroom but later will be cut up into a dozen smbli, individual student, research laboratories. All in all this new hall shows un- usual care in securing the very best arrangements and equipment to make It highly usable by both the faculty and the students in connection with chemistry and metallurgy. The pre- liminary plans for it were outlined by former President C. H. Clapp and later Floyd Hamill was secured as the architect. Hartley and Sons of IIel- ena were the contractors for the steel and concrete shell while Goss and O'Brien of Butte have finished the structure. President George W. Craven and M. F. Haley, superintend- ent of grounds and buildings, have had a large supervisory interest in the construction. The furnishings were secured largely by Prof. H. T. Mann, formerly head of the depart- ment of chemistry and metallurgy, and by Prof. A.E. Koenig his success- or. To these men especially, the state of Montana owes a vote of thanks for a magnificent educational building that shoud long be a source of pride to the people of this state and that should do much to help develop Mon- tana's mineral resources.

SHOOTS AT RAT AND HITS DYNAMITE; UP GOES CABIN AND ALL \It's all right to shoot at a mountain rat, but be careful what's behind him,\ is the advice of Tom- my Coughlin, prospector in a gulch near Nine Mile, where he operates a claim. It was 2 o'clock in the morning when Tommy was awakened by one of the mountain speeh3s of cheese nibblers. This particular rat had annoyed Coughlin before, so he decided to finish him. Seizing his shotgun, Tommy, with the true aind steady aim *of the old tinier, fired. With the dis- charge of the gun, the earth seem- ed to open up and things went fly- ing into the air in every direction. \Everything wint; clothes, cab- in and claim. I thought 'twas the earthquake in Japan,\ is the way Tommy describes it. \Did you kill the rat?\ he was asked later, upon his arrival at police headquarters with his hands turns of surgeon's tape. \Say you bet your life,\ Tommy declared. \Anybody who can find that there rat kin have my claim,\ he added. It developed that Coughlin, in hi s zeal to do away with his four - footed tormentor, had forgotten that nearby lay a case and a half of dynamite, two cases of caps and a case of shotgun shells. When Tommy Wed at the rat, the whole thing went. His escape from death or serious injury was a nar- row one. Don't Forget Cuticura Talcum. When adding to your toilet requisites.

Lesson No. 5 Economical Dishes Easily Prepared W HERE families are large and in- comes not so elastic as might be wished, one of the problems of the home- maker is to serve good, wholesome and tasty dishes that can be prepared at low cost. Here again, Carnation Milk proves an able ally, for it enables her to have at all times an abundant supply of pure, rich milk at a relatively small expense and by using this in her cooking she can make appetizing and nourishing dishes at much less cost than where expensive cuts of meat and ready -prepared delicatessen goods are used. For lunch or for the evening meal, a cream soup is a satisfying course. hero is one that is easily made and economical. Cream of Macaroni Soup 1 teaspoon salt, 2 table- spoons butter, % cup macaroni, broken in 3 - inch pieces, 1 teaspoon salt, 2 tablespoons flour, 3 cups water, 1 cup Car- nation Milk. Cook mac- aroni in boiling salted water about twenty minutes or until soft. Drain. Melt butter; add flour; add salt; then milk and cook five minutes. Combine with macaroni. This recipe serves six people. • Where there is meat left over from a roast or stew the following recipe will suggest an excellent way of making use of it. Scalloped Meat 2 cups meat, parsley, 1% cups thin white sauce. Chop meat fine and season with salt and pepper if desired. Mix meat and thin white sauce and put in buttered baking dish, cover the top with buttered bread crumbs and brown in oven 10 or 15 minutes. Cold fish may be shredded and used in the same way. This re- cipe serves six people. Many of our ancestors, particularly those zeho lived in the \corn\ states, practically raised their families on corn bread and milk - ---a most nourishing and wholesome food. Here's an easy way to make good corn bread: Corn Bread 1 ,42 cupful flour, 2 , 1 3 cupfuls wIlter, 1 cupful corn meal, % cupful Carnation Milk, 1 egg, % tea- spoonful salt, 2 teaspoonfuls baking powder, 2 tablespoonfuls butter or substitute. Mix flour, corn meal, salt and baking powder. Add unbeaten egg and liquid. Add melted but- ter and beat vigorously. Pour into shallow pan which has been well oiled and bake in a mod- erately hot oven. The mixture must be thin. An inexpensive substitute for cake—one that always pleases the children and many adults is old-fashioned gingerbread. This re- cipe is one that I have found most satisfac- tory: Gingerbread 6 teablespooniels wa- ter, 2% cupfule flour, 1 cup molasses, 2 table- spoonfuls Carnation Milk, 1 4 teaspoonful salt, % teaspoonful soda, 1 1 4 tea- spoonfuls ginger, 14 cup- ful butter or lard. Sift dry ingredients together. Add liquid to molas- ses. Combine 41xtures, add shortening and beat well. Pour into oiled shallow pan and bake in moderately hot oven about 26 minutes. Questions and Answers Why is it that sometimes the bottom crust of a fruit or berry pie does not get done?— Mrs. C. L. A. You do not have your oven hot enough. The oven must be hot enough to bake the crust quickly. Otherwise the juices from the fruit will soak into the bottom crust and make it soggy. Where can I get a table showing how long Various dishes should be cooked? Mr. R. B. P.
