Glass of 1930
THE class of 1930 steps upon the stage, rehearses its brief
part, and makes its exit from classic halls -to enter the
hurly burly or the drudgery of the everyday world. The sea
son of graduation is upon us again. In every hamlet schools
are closing and classes are being dismissed with diplomas
certifying they have finished the course.
These are great daysfor the young people. Those whose
hair is-turning grey need not look upon youth with such cyn
ical smiles. They were young once themselves and should
recall how thrilled they were at high school graduation. Nr
dowe sympathize with the old critics who make fun of the
youth who finish high school and college for the' disillusion
ment which they assert awaits youth when it enters into
practical -affairs. .. i
Our young people are more sophisticated today. No more
do they have graduating orations on how they will solve the
problems of the world and how they will slay the dragons of
Error and Inertia which retard human progress. Youth has
its eyes open; and realizes full well that a diploma is only
a scrap of paper so far as gaining real success in life is con
cerned. Our graduates do not anticipate that they are going
to perform Herculean feats in cleaning the Augean stables
of politics or transforming society or solving problems of in
dustry. Their first concern is to get a job and win out at the
We hope however that with all their sophistication youth
will still cling to some measure of the idealism which is its
birthright. Where indeed are we to get renewal of our faith
if not from bright-eyed, intelligent, earnest young people,
who having been trained in the schools, having been edu
cated in the theory of good citizenship and wholesome con
duct, enter into active life with the hope that they can make
real contribution toward bettering conditions in the world?
Save us from the graduates who are cynics when they leave
school. Their souls are calloused, and they offer faint promise
of return to society for educating them.
No" give us high school and college graduates who are
cheerful, who want to live, who want to "do something, who
have real purpose in life, and the mental and moral equip
ment to enable them to attain something worth while. We
shall not make fun of them for exuberant idealism. No in
deed, we shall greet them heartily, and wish them well as
they straighten their shoulders, to the load of civic duty and
moral responsibility which those it the end of life must each
year lay aside.
Of f to a Fresh Start
COINCIDENT with the offering this week of $300,000,000
in German reparations bonds issued under thje Young
plan, it may be said that Germany if off to a fresh start.
The Dawes plan gave war-wracked Germany one start and
' the rebuilding of German industry was rapid. The : Dawes
plan was indefinite as; to the term' of payment. While Ger
many faithfuly met every condition of the Dawes plan, the
time came when a final settlement of the reparations diffi
culties would-have to be made.
That settlement was concluded at Paris last year by a
commission -whose moving force was Owen D. Young, and the
plan is called in bis honor, the Young plan. Under it the gross
amount of German obligations for reparations was fixed at
around eight billions of dollars. The terms of payment were
decided on, and to facilitate exchange from Germany to the
other countries a Bank for International Settlements has been
created and is now functioning. It succeeds the War "Repar
ations Commi&sion.
The bond issue is the next step in the plan and the bonds
are being offered this week in'the United States and in other
leading countries of the world. The portion allotted to the
United States is $80,000,000; the bonds are priced to yield a
little over 6ft. Sinde the national 'debt of Germany was ex
tinguished through the'depreciation of theirfark, the burden
imposed by the reparations is no greater than the normal
national debt of a country like Germany. The load will be
much easier than the peak payments under the Dawes plan,
so there is every asusrance that Germany will meet the ob
ligations imposed on it under the Young plan and by the
terms of this bond issue. ir
To the world this means, we hope, the final easting of
accounts respecting the financial settlement of the war. With
this issue settled the nations of Europe can go ahead with
some confidence in their economic security. The result should
be a stimulus to German industry, making it a better market
for American prcdticts.This adjustment may be just what
is needed to make foreign trade get back into its stride,
which would have a stimulating effect in all countries of
the world. . - l "

Doctor Eaton left the sickroom

and this present case showed many

Sayre irent back to Knollwood,
greatly heartened by his talk with
the nurse. It brought Emily
nearer to him to , hear these de
tails of what shelwas doing and
saying. Had he known ,tbn real
truth of her terrible night, he
would have felt less secure of her
ultimata recovery.

Betty was a little downcast, for
she had had a relative who had
lost his mind through the effects
of shock, and she secretly feared
for Emily.
Fleming Stone, pleasant and
kindly as always, was abstracted
and thoughtful.
He roused to sharp attention
when Rodney related what the
nurse had told him.
For Sayre, so pleased himself
to learn details of his darling's
doings, wasted to pass the story

"Tell that again, Sayre " he
said, excitedly. "Tell It exactly as
the nurse told it to you."
Nothing loath, Rodney repeated-It

Iportant acta ; of the legislative
committee, tne uno iaw wa mo
mark ot Shortess, who was, at
this period of his history. In close
sympathy with the Methodist
mission. The fourth article was
directly designed to take from
John McDoughlin his claim at
Oregon City, but when the motion
waa put to adopt the law as a
whole, there arose considerable
argument, the mission having
also laid claim to a portion of
the land at Oregon City, and hav
ing erected mills on the island at
the falls. In order to antet this
discussion and satisfy the mis
sion,, a proviso was proposed
'that nothing In these. laws shall
bo so construed as to effect any
claim ot any mission ot a relig
ions character, made previous to
this time, ot an extent not more'
than six mies square-'
"The reports of the various
committees having been adopted,
Jason Lee, Harvey Clark, and
David Leslie were chosen a com
mittee to draught and adminis
ter an oath of office to the per
sons elected en the 2d of Msy,
and- to the supreme judge, who
should thereafter enaUfy all civU
and military officers elected by
the people. Burns having to
signed his office as Justice ot the
peace, Moore was chosen la his
place. James OTiell was also
chosen Justice ot the peace for
Yamhm district and Amos Cook
constable. Joel Turnham waa
elected constable tor Cbampoolck
district, la place of Bridges, who
had gone to California.
"The choice of an executive
committee was a matter of more
moment, and the subject of active
canvassing; It finally fell on Da
vid Hill, Alanson Beers, and Jo
seph Gale. None of these men
had influence enough to be dan
gerous to the peace ot the com
munity r two belonged to the set
tler class and the third was but
a lay member ot the mission. The
i oath of office was administered
the same day. by motion ot the
meeting, and thus the whole
business of starting the machin
ery of the first . government of
Oregon was concluded.
"With regard to the influence
of the Methodist mission on the
organisation of a temporary gov
ernment, the student of history
can arrive at but one conclusion.
The first object of the mission
was to secure large tracts ot land.
Having made their choice, finding
the United States government
slow to act in the matter ot bound
ary "and title, and fearing the en
croachment of immigrants who
might dispute with them their
right to a land monopoly in cer
tain localities. It was their only
recourse to secure the establish
ment of a temporary government,
or even as independent one,
which should confirm by law the
claims already taken or that
might be taken, under the law. It
was not their policy to Seem to be
more anxious than other men, but
rather to strive to make the set
tlers anxieas about their welfare,
and to nse them to promote their
own' ends.
"The scheme of government
framed by the legislative commit
tee ot 1142 had a political signifi
cance - imparted to it by Robert
Shortess; which was not compre
hended by the majority ef Amer
ican settlers who voted for It By
making its basis the ordinance of
1717, passed by congress for the
government of the territories
north of the Ohio river, besides
its other excellent- provisions. It
was intended to settle the"' Ques
tion of slavery west of the Rocky
mountains, as had been done -in
the northwestern states. Also by
extending Jurisdiction over the
whole of Oregon up to the time
the United States should take
possession ot the country, the
right of Great Britain to any part
of It was ignored a step In ad
vance ot the position, publicly tak
en at this time by the government
"It is doubtful If, when all was
done, the British residents of the
territory, even McLoughUn him
self, fully recognised the Impor
tance of what had taken place.
This was the mistake which he
often made In regard to American
enterprises. . Ho was slow to
learn the difference betWeen xnea

der a quarter moon, so bright the
night sky was blue Instead ot
black, the dirigible Graf Zeppe
lin floated from the ground at
9:12 (EST) tonight to start its
eighth ocean crossing and com
plete Its journey across fonr con
tinents and two hemispheres.
With 22 passengers, four of
them women; and a crew of 50.
th giant ship lifted lightly Into
the luminous sky aad with a roar
of its five greats motors headed
away for New York and the sea
The departure was uneventful,
the ship being towed easily from
the hanger by the mobile mooring
mast aad scarcely mora than halt
a hundred man. Ropes were cast
loose. Gutteral orders were bark
ed from the open windows of the
control cabin where Dr. Hngo
Eckener, commander of the ship,
superintended the sailing. And
then came the final orders to the
sailors and marines holding the
A. crowd ef several thousand

The schedule calls for a stop at
Seville, Spain, In fifty hours, a
wait of an hour or two there, and
then the last 20 hours to Freid
richshafen. So will be completed
a flight in which there were stops
in Europe and both Americas and
in which the ship flew over a tip
of Africa and twice across tha
equator. It was the longest jour
ney the Graf has taken except tor
her record-breaking flight around
