School Somen Are Sans.
Th Washington high students at
the First Congregational were qu'te
irrepressible, and they concluded the
service by singing their school songs,
probably for the last time together.
The sermons were, of course, bac
calaureate addresses. In the Wash
ington high group were SI girls and
47 bovs. Seven of the group had
supported themselves through high
school, and Dr. McKlveen extended to

It was an apt text that Dr. Pence
discoursed unon: "What shall the end

"Be loval" was one of the striking
themes of Dr. Pence's address.
Sace Advice Is Given.
But Dr. Boyd said that his subject
was not contained in any especial
text, although he cited three, but was
suggested to him by a passage in
Husley's essay: "A Liberal Educa
tion." Dr. Boyd, as was his habit of yore,
clothed "many ideas originally and
gave many a pill of sage advice with
a sugar-coating of novelty.
"There are ratchets on the wheels
of timo and you can't go backwards,"
was one of his best. Others were:
"When you die you can't take your
possessions with you. 1 have looked
into many a dead man's hand as he
lay in his coffin and every hand I
saw was an empty hand. The only
thing you can take is the imprint of

"Unless you play the rules of the

Four laws govern the game of life,
said Dr. Boyd. He cited these as:

A resolution demanding release of
"political prisoners" was passed after

PRELIMINARY TRAINING NEED
Small Battles Won Prepare for Big
Ones, Says Dr. Nugent.
"The trouble with a lot of folks,"
said Dr. Walter Henry Nugent in his
sermon in the Central Presbyterian
church yesterday morning, "is that
they are forever looking for
some great opportunity in life and
at the same time neglecting the op
portunities that present themselves,
and which seized would fit them for
the greater things."
Dr. Nugent's subject was "The Im
portance of Preliminary Battles" and
from the statement of David. "The
Lord that delivered me out of the paw
of the lion, and out of the paw of the
bear, he will deliver me out of the
hand of this Philistine," as his text.
He stated that if David had fled
from the bear and left the lamb to its
fafe he never would have been able to
have met the lion, but having killed
the bear he was ready for the lion;
and these rreliminary battles pre
pared him later for the giant.
Dr. Nugent had the commencement
season in mind when he said: "What
David did when he met the giant was
determined those other days when he
met the bear and the lion. What we
do today is determined by what we
did yesterday. And what we shall
do tomorrow is determined by what
we do today. If we are not now
winning skirmishes we can never
expect to achieve any great victory
for God or man. The preliminary bat
tles are all-important."

said the rector. "Jesus meant the
innocence, the goodness of very lit
