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.

Oh, yes, h e ’s the fellow who is prime minister of Englandi\ .. \What do you mean* did I hear about the situation in China* Who do you think I am, John Foster Dulles?\ These remarks may sound quite ridiculus to those who have a slight knowledge of world affairs. But what about those who have not oven that knowledge? The per­ centage of people in this group is surprisingly large especially in those age groups that attend high school. The big question is \Why?\ The best source for obtaining information on pre­ sent happenings of the world is the newspaper. Yet how many teenagers get much farther than the comic strip? There is no excuse for these people who are so negligent. We live in a great and growing America and in order to keep this pace it is nec­ essary for America’s children to become aware of what is happening to the world around them.

I Participate in school activities and attend the Ronan- Eureka game Saturday. i m i na t g M c c i don t s There have been at least six automobile accidents in the Eure­ ka area in the last two weeks.Fortunately, no one has gotten killed in any of these accidents as yet. All of these accidonts have been caused by carelessness and could have been eliminated if the drivers and other people involved would have taken their time and' driven in.a sensible manner. Anyone who has wit­ nessed a football game at Eureka has probably noticed how shabby our goal posts arc* These goal posts were here many years before the present football team even started high school and each year they have had to be repaired before a game can be played. It would be nice if we could get a set of goal posts made out of pipe and erected be­ fore the season gots under way. A new set of goal posts would last many years if set properly. The smallest. good i deed is better . than ihe biggest good intention. Wocabulnry I s i m p o r t a n t National merit scholarship qualifi­ cation tests given last year to the juniors of LCHS point­ ed out a weakness, on the whole, in vocabu­ lary and word usage. The weakness is prev­ alent not only in the seniors of this year but also in the entire strident body. This is easy enough to .explain in that tho students do not rendf enough books to provide them with an extensjvo. and varied vocabulary. It is visible at the library by observing tho number and type of books taken out. It can be seen by merely looking around study hall and noticing the number of students reading-rather-looking at pictures in maga­ zines. This in itself cannot bo condemned for there is often good material to bd found in periodicals, but when one merely picks up the magazine and leafs through it that is strickly another matter. There are two solu­ tions for this problem existing in LCHS to be solved by individual means or by the teach­ ers exerting an influ- ince on their pupils. Individually, the student could help himself by more’ exten­ sive reading, reading books of many differ­ ent types, and when running across an un- familar word, looking it up and learning it. By assigning more book reports and more word study and under­ standing, the teachers would enrich the stu­ dents vocabulary on a larger scale than the individual means. The effect of those suggestions, if put into use, would prove an asset to both school and students. — M Early to bed-early to rise-bags under tho eyes
