The orations throughout were well
prepared and it is but fair to say this is
one of the best midyear commence
ments ever held here. The commence
ment addreBS was given by Prof. H. Jtf.
Buckham in his scholarly and force
ful way. The class address was made
by State Superintendent J. H. Acker

The ladies' basket ball team met a
similar team from Albany College last
Friday uigbt. While the Normal won
by a large score. 3 to 15, still the game
was stubbornly contested and was a
fine exhibition of clean, good natured
playing. The goal throwing of the

The remains of Charles N. McCaleb,
who waa drowaed February 3, while
hunting on the John Day river, were
interred In the K. of P. cemetery last
Monday. Funeral services were held
as the Christian church and were in
chargs of the W. O. IV, of which order
he was a member. Mr. McCaleb was
born in Winchester, Va., February 16,
1873, coming to Polk county, Oregou,
in 1880. He graduated from the Nor
mal in 1897, was married to Miss Kittie
Corn well in 1899. Has been located in
Moro, Ore., since '97, and has been
deputy sheriff for four years. Mr. Mc
Caleb was a most estimable young
man and his untimely death is
mourned by a host of friends.
Bedlam broke loose last night when
time was called at the end of the first
half and it was seen that the Normal
team had held the University oi Wash
ington's basket ball team to an even
core. The champions of the north
west, seeing that the team they were
using could not win the game, put
"Big Tom" McDonald, one of the
greatest athletes of the country, in at
center. The work of this man saved
the day for Washington, the score be
ing 20 to 12. The game.was rough and
not nearly so scientific as many of the
games that have been pulled off in the
gymnasium, Washington relying
largely on brawn. Credit must be
given McDonald as one of the most
skillful players that has ever been on
the Normal floor. The line up:
