Class Gradual
The graduating exercises for the
Class of 1927 of the Tygh Valley
High school were held in tho L O. O.
hall Friday evening, May 13. The
members of the class were Clair
Korval, Rachael LuCore and Henry
McGreer. . ,. .
The address to the class was given
by Rev. Bruce J. Ciffin, pastor at the
University of Oregon. . Owing to
the unavoidable absence of chair
man of the school board the diplo
mas were presented by Prineipal
Clyde T. Bonney. "
An unique feature of the evening
was the presentation of track, base
blal and basket ball' letters. Thirty
letters were given. To th two boy
graduates the baseball suits which
they have worn during the season
just closed were given them as a re
minder of the jolly times on the
baseball field. To Kenneth Webb,
who was next to the highest point
man in the county track meet, was
given the shoes and track suit which
he wore, as he covered himself with
honors on the third Saturday of last
April. It is confidently phophefied
that the suit will be in evidence on
the third Saturday of April, 1928.
Everyone voted the school year
just closed a grand success. Tygh
will accomplish greater things an
other year.
"Tygh Down Wapinitia.
Since Maupin would not permit
the Tygh ,and Shanikc-Antelope
baseball teams to play off a tie on
neutral grounds, the Tygh boys went
to Wapinitia last Wednesday after
noon, May 11. and played the Wapi
nitia team. The score was 22 to 7
in favor of Tygh. This score would
seem to indisate that the Tygh boys
could have given the Maupin High
school team a run for their, money,
inasmcuh as Maupin had been able
to beat -Wapinitia the week before
by a score of only 8 to 7. The Tygh
boys were oManppointed that Maupin
did not see fit to include them in
their baseball schedule.
