The graduation exercises were ' held in the auditorium of the High chool, which wa filled to overflow ing with students, and relative und ! friend of the graduate!. The pro gram waa one of the beat arranged for any commencement in Maupin, the musical and vocal numbers Lc intf especially fine. The diploma were presented by H. It. , Kaifir, president of the school board. The address of the clans was dcli MTcd by Rev. C. A. Edwards of The Dulles. Mr. Edward' remarks, which occupied nearly nn hour, were not in the nature of a sermon, but rather word of advice. He told the cla tho commencement waa not the end, but rather the commencement of education; that life was just open ing for them and that, If thoy de sired to be true men and women, they munt formulate high ideal and work to their conummation. Tho reverend gentlemen emphasized brotherly love and declaved that war would never cease until there wax nuivenal love between nations. Mb Helen Webcrg read the salu tatory, a paper filled with trite and true words of wisdom, and was re ceived generously by all who heard the young lady read her paper. It Is ao good that we publish it in its en tirety Salutatory Address Friends and Classmates: We, the Senior Clus of 1927, aro pleased to welcome you to our Com mencement exercises tonight as the last performance In which we shall take a part. It la with Joy at having completed our four year in high school, joy in tho realization that we reached one goal, tluit we welcome you tonight; but it is with regret . that we leave clfls smates, f riemlH, teachers, and perhavs our parents, all of whom have done their best - to help us during our high school career and who hnvo offered us every opportunity to make our school life pleasant So it in with eager ness, and also wlt'a regret, tliat we step out into the world to tako our lives in our own hands and shape them accordingly. Commencement meanB the time for beginning; and the hopes of finishing school (as we all have look- ed forward to) are shattered in find ing that we are only ready to begin to rtart in the world doing things by ourselves. Our education is not com pleted when school days are over. The lessons are not ended, and we are by no means free. We are only ready to open, tho greatest book in tho world the book of life. The hardest lesson m still left for us. to learn- the lesnon of "How to live a satisfactory life." When I say satisfactory, I mean a life that is honorable and successful. There is : much satisfaction in knowing that wo have gone a step higher i nour education. After all, satisfaction, is the greatest thing ' in' lite', satisfac tion thaat lusts for years, not merely today, tomorrow. We havo acheived one 'of the satisfactions of life in the j would be a good motto for all of us: completion of four secondary educa- ''Give to the world tho best you have tion.

However, ' health, without anything should com a mental capacity for hard work. There is a great difference be-1 tween the class of people who have an opportunity. The educated class lives mainly by the excercise of In tellectual powers and gets more, en joyment out of life than the larger elans of uneducated people, who live by the exercise or bodily powers. In order to be successful in anything we must put our whole effort and energy into the task. Exclusive attention to any line of efforts ha a (has thus far in our career constituted tendency to make tho mind rigid and the principal factor in our lives.

Therefore, we ought to ob tain, in our high school career, the traained capacity for mental labor, which means concentration. Com petition become sharper as time ad vances and success in the future must be measured by mental train ing. But there la still greater sat isfaction in life. Shukespcre said, "The purest treasure mortal times afford Is spot less reputation." This is especially true in our commercial world today. Bankers loan money or refuse to loan it; merchants en dother busi ness men give creditor refuse it all determined by your reputation. An honorable person never borrows more than he can repay; he never cheats a person weaker or poorer than himself; ho never betray a trust; he is sincere, candid, and gen erous; not generous with money but generous in his opinioos of man kind.

It has been one of tho defects in our education, at school and college, that we have not paid attention enough to this ele ment in an effective education the acquiring of some capacity to give other people pleasure, a capacity which pnee acquired will lost thru life. There in nn old saying that trust wo shall do you an honor as well as an honor to burselven. Again, friends, welcome, thrice wcl com to tho exercises this evening, I thank you. , The next offering by a graduate was that of Miss Alda Pugh whose rendering of the valedictory will long be remembered by Maupinites for , its clear and forceful contents. Miss IPugh has been a favorite among the students and her graduation caused many a pang of regret to pierco the hearts of thosia, who have been asso ciated with her during her school days here. Her paper follows : 1927 Valadictory Addrsts Friends and Fellow-Student: It is with a mingled feeling of joy ' and pain that I appear before you ithis evening; Joy at the opportunity greeting so many friends at this, the closing of another year and the Commencement of the Class of 1927; pain at the thought of parting from my fellow-students. As schoolmates we have spent many years together, happy in sharing all our Joys and pleasures and it is with a kindly feeling and much regre that we, as graduates, take leave of you tonight Education and all that it implies upon one phase of it, which, in my opinion, seems important namely: democracy in education. Occasionally we meet with pepple who, not having known the advent - age tf school training, discourage education, and even , ridicule and f disparage it Many contend that it is possible to SUCCeed in this or that' line of work without education. This is true in some extent, but not en tirely so, for if the individual suc ceeds in his work he must neces sarily put daily thought upon it and study his work, which is just another way of getting training.

Pw"s of obseryation-the develop - ment of the ability to reason and .i.- j...., . I ..... the development of character. Plu tarch say, "The very spring and root of honesty and virtue lie in the feli city of lighting on good education." I realize that I have not said any-' IVimM nm T 1-...

Most people today have come to regard educationas the prime fac tor in life. It is a true saying ut tered by Publius Syrius thnt "it is only the ignorant who despise edu cation." From the beginning of our government democratic ana to a great extent they . have succeeded. Pope says, "Tis education forms the common mind : just as the twig is bent the tree's inclined." The esteem of the American peo - pie for education can readily be seen by the way they have generously paid taxes to provide schools and colleges for tho younger generations Not so ninny years ago only the rich people could afford to educate their children. They either sent them to a school where tuition was required, or hired a private tutor. Conse quently the poor children never re ceived any education and as few peo ple were rich, the; majority of tho peoplo were uneducated. Of those who did receive an education the boys were given preference, because it was. believed that they were the ones who neded an education. The girls were taught household duties. But this idea has changed; women not attend school in even larger num ber than men; and educate them selves for many positions that were formerly considered only for men. ! The first great advance concern ing education in the . elementary schools was made during the 19th century, although some effort had been made in this direction as early as the 17th. The rich and poor have since that time been offered equal chance for an elementary school edu- cation by the establishment of the fre system of education in those ' ;rade. , - The enactment of the compulsory education law was another advance made by our people toward universal education. Without this law some people would send their children to work instead of school, either not knowing or disbelieving that each day spent by the student in school Is worth over five dollars to him. Lowell says, "It was in making edu- cation not only common to ail. but in some sense compulsory on all that j which the railroad runs. ; the destiny of the free republic of j The reward is determined on a America was practically settled. basi ' 7S percent rank In club American people do not realize the'wt and 25 percent of character, value of their educational systems interest and qualities of leadership, as much as foreigners do.

As for the children themselves, he knew no surer way to thei radvancement and happiness." It is probably known that public high schools in large cities in Ameri ca are not yet a century old, while those in small town have been only crecntly established. Through this extention in free education by the public high school sjtern many students now , acquire a greater beneficial studies Then there are the colleges ana institutions of higher learning where students of moderate means ana oi ambitious nature can complete their ' education ; many students are now losing aavanu. ...Bu-jRn0w , i ... j . . ii !:.,. itions. tne nuniDcr navinK more mu doubled since the World War, This increase is due to the fact thnt society in the hiuher fields of learning demands better educated DeoDle. that our country -as well as other countries, see throuuh educa- tion higher ideals, better citizen,) better government, and sounder in ternational relations. ' Students in America have not only been given the advantage of better and less expensive education but have also been given more care and consideration to the selection of the teachers.

The two forces of Uuclt .Sam's mail men met on the Maupin " diamond last Sunday and when th (last man was out th score sheet 'showed that th men from the, Waseo county metropolis had had five men cross th pan, while all Bend could get around were three. The gam abounded in fine plays and showed that th carriers knew something be sides th addresses on tire mail matter they deliver daily. At th conclusion of the gam a team was mad up of the best play- ers of each town, and these played the Maupin Stubble Jumpers. Of course it must be conceded that the first game tired the carriers some what but but it is well known that the Maupinites play real baseball and it takes a snappy, fighting team to down them. At the end of the game the score stood, Carriers, 3; Jumpers 5. Next Sunday, May 29, the fast Culver team will b here for a game with Maupin. Culver has been de livering a fin article of ball this season and promise to make the boys who warm their feet in furrows hustle for every tally they get The game will be worthy of patronage and our people are asked to turn ' out and leave a few shekels in the gate receipts. Playing bail costs ' some money, but the satisfaction re ceived in watching the plays more than offsets the costs, therefore Maupin people should patronize the games.
