Dr. H. D. Sheldon, dean of the
school of education, will speak on
the subject of Americanization be
fore the Neighborhood Club at La
Grande, on February 19th.
“There is an increased interest
shown throughout the state in this,
subject,’’ said Dr. Sheldon. “Peo
ple are beginning to realize that
there should be night schools for
foreigners with classes in English,
the proper instruction in civics, and
instruction concerning American in
stitutions and the principles involved’
in the Declaration of Independence.”
“This is a subject that requires)
wise handling,” Dr. Sheldon said
further, “if an attempt is made to
suppress the speaking of foreign
languages and the printing of news
papers in foreign languages, it im
mediately appeals to the foreigner
as being a patriotic act to read and
speak • his native tongue. If these
foreign newspapers are left alone
they will die of themselves, for they
necessarily reach a limited number
of people, their resources are limit

give the real news service American
papers give. Foreigners should be

As you enter the Private Diamond Salesroom, you do so
with an air of confidence. You realize that if you are not
posted on the value of precious stones that before leaving
you are going to learn what Diamond Quality really means.
To many people all Diamonds look alike. The Brilliancy of
an average stone will appeal to them, and in most cases
Color and Quality are overlooked. If the Diamond Pur
chaser does require Quality—why buy a Diamond?
If you are going to wear a Diamond, let it be one of Quality
—a Laraway Diamond. You can then turn your hand out
with pride and say: “It came from Laraway’s.”
There is a real pleasure in selecting a Diamond at Lara
way’s. You are permitted to see a wonderful collection.
To see stones compared, side by side. After a careful in
spection you will readily see the importance of choosing a
stone under the direction and protection of an expert.
An^early purchase is advisable as Diamonds continue to
