THREE YOUNG MEN RECEIVE DI
PLOMAS FROM COUNTY'S
The First commencement of the
Wallowa County high school set a
high mark for excellence, enthusiasm
Und success in every particular. The
Iblg assembly hall was crowded to
jthe doors, every seat occupied and
mures ot people standing up. On the
platform were all taking part in the
program, the teachers, school boards,
eighth grade graduates and others,
in all abojt 40 people. College and
salioal flass gave color variety to
Uie ever;;re:m deco-ations around the
platform, end the class motto, "Al
ways Onward and Upward" on the
wall back or the classes.
The program was or some length
but it held the closest attention of
the big audlenee throughout. The
high school glee club was given
hearty applause for Its tuneful ren
dering of the old favorite, "Come
.Vhere the Lillles Bloom," s,nd after
invocation by Rev, W. S, Crockett,
President Renter of Monmouth sang
a solo that was, so well received be
responded with another song.
Charles E, Oaks, one of the three
members of this first graluatlu
:lasa welcomed the audience and
ipoke a few, we'l chosen words o
salutatory, before launching upon
his oration, "Uncle Sam's Big Ditch.'

the future of the Pacific Coast. Mr.
Oakea spoke, elqarly and without
Ivan C. Jackson told of "The Three
Sides of a Dollar," a novel subject
or a commencement oration and
his treatment of it was also unusual.
He gave a brjef review of money and
presented a good brief in defense o!

by telling of Us good work In spurr
ing men to mighty effort in the ac
jompllshment of things beneficial tc
humanity. 'If such are the results
t the love or money, give us more
jf that love."
After a duet well played by Misses
Vmy Olmsted and Edna Ragsdale
auie the valedictory and oration,
Modern Industrialism," by Vernon
J. Corkins. The question or the
proper re-adjustment of relations
jetween employer and employee
Jiade necessary by the changed con
dltions of modern Industrialism, wa
ihown to be the supreme question
jf the day. Mr. Corkins has a good
delivery and his production bore evl
lence or logical thinking. He was
especially happy in his words of fare
vell.which were marked by an earn
astness that was Impressive,
r The class as a whole is a credit to
the high school, and the families and
Jrlends of its members can be justly
proud or the showing made by the
oung men on Friday night.
President E. D. Ressler or Mon
mouth Normal emphasized in his ad
tress to the class the necessity of
lolng well whatever work they under
took. The real happiness in life
comes not from riches or honors but
from finding your work and doing
it; from contributing all that is in
you to the happiness and well-being
of your fellow mea. Mr. Ressler
garnished his words of wisdom with
considerable humor that the audience
County Judge J. B. Olmsted, chair
man of the high school board, pre
sented the diplomas to the clas3,
3aylng he considered it an honor to
to do so. He also presented diplomas
