ELLIOTT LID LOSES
LIFE, DOIT UPSETS
SILVERTON. June 14. (Spe
cial) Eight year old Wilfred El
liott was drowned In the "Ludy"
swimming hole Wednesday after
noon when the boat in which he
played about the water upset. The
youngster, the son of Mr. and Mrs.
Les Elliott, could not swim and
disappeared before the eyes of his
younger brother Norman woo
watched from the bank. Norman
immediately summoned the mother
and other help, the body being re
corered by Ralph Adams who had
dived for it in the six and a half
feet of water. All efforts to resus
citate the rictim were futile. Mr.
Elliott was at the time at the Sil
ver Falls mill where he is em
ployed. He is survived by his mother
and father, two brothers, Norman,
seven, and Orville, 10. and one sis
ter, Glenca 12, his grandfather Ed

OREGON NORMAL SCHOOL,
Monmouth, June 14. (Special).
The forty-sixth annual com
mencement of the Oregon normal
school was held at Monmouth
Wednesday morning with Horace
E. Thomas, well known editorial
writer of the Oregonian, deliver
ing the address to the graduation
class. A group of IS 7 graduates
received diplomas from the two
year standard coarse. This num
ber of graduates added to those of
the fall and winter terms and an
estimated class for the summer
session makes a grand total of
over 500 graduates for the school
Mr. Thomas described in most
fitting manner the wonderful pro
gress which has been achieved in
all forms of social and material
fields. He indicated the large
needs in society of the present day
and for the necessity therefor for
a large army or carefully trained
young people to perform the serv
ice therein. The kind of service
needed to. do the work of the
world of the present day was
splendidly illustrated by Mr.
Thomas in his remarks about a
tramway up Mt. Hood. He main
tains that the tourist who rode to
the top of this wonderful peak on
the velvet cushions of a tramway
(car, would be disappointed when
he reached the top, but that those
who with their alpine stock in
hand scaled the mountain through
laborious effort would enjoy keen
satisfaction derived through the
accomplishment. The signifi
cance of this illustration was the
grea't message of the speaker to
the graduation class. His ad
dress held the attention of the
large audience throughout and
was commented upon in very
strong terms by both President
