Oregon City School a mil
itating Exercise. ' -
The commencement exercises of the
West Oregon City school, held Saturday
evening were very entertaining, consist
ing principally of the presentation of
three diplomas to the members i( the
graduating class, and a comedy, "Sin
gle Life," presented by a number of
competent persons. The graduates
were Lee Caufield, Bessie McMillan and
Earl Smith. County Superintendent
Zineer called attention to the fact, in
presenting the diplomas, that it was an
unusual class there were a greater
number of boys than girls. Also, that
this class was composed of the young
est graduates in Clackamas county,
and they had successfully passed the
rigid examination imposed by the state
board for eighth grade pupils. It is a
notable fact that only a comparative
small number of students are able to
pans all of the 10 branches in the pre
scribed eighth grade couise at the first

Vocal musical numbers were contrib

making, and each one worthy of men
