(Emery Rogers)
I was talking to a prominent mem
ber of the senior class about a month
ago. "Will you be glad when com
mencement comes around?" I inquir
ed. "I surely shall," replied the
senior, "for that's the end. It's the
last finishing touch. After that, my
days of hard thinking are over." Is
commencement , the ' last of hard
thinking? No event ever lived up to
its name .better than commencement.
Truly it is the commencement. The
student who graduates from high
school is just starting on his upward
climb through life. His thinking, his
labor, his discouragements and vic
tories are all just at the early stages.
In the following years after com
mencement the events will occur up
on which the success of your life will
depend. If one will keep in mind
that now is the time to start making
a name for ones self and that now
one makes himself into what he will
be in later life, he will guide his ac
tions and habits so as to make his
later life full of peace and content
ment. - - : -
Signing Annuals .
"Hey John! Will you put your John
Henry in my annual? I am not par
ticular who writes in it."
"Shore, shore," said John, "I am not
proud." .
This is the way it goes with all the
students eager to have other students
sign their annuals. Some consider
it as a joke and scribble all over the
page with their name while others
take it seriously and place their sig
nature in neat style on the page.
After several years have passed
the old school annual is dug out of the
trunk. You turn the pages over and
over and recognize your old school
mates but as you turn the pages over
you come to the signature of your old
friends it is then that you get a gjod
laugh at the scribbling that is plwed
on the annual of 1930.

for the winner, neither team wished
to forfeit the game although it was
played in mud about ankle deep part
of the time. The game was called off
at the end of the tenth inning with
the score tied at 5-5.
Hermiston started the merry-go-round
in the second inning by mak
ing three scores on three successive
errors. Athena hit a streak, of luck
in the third and managed to run in
4 scores making the score 4-3 in
favor of Athena but Hermiston man
aged to score in the fourth tying the
game again. Both teams failed to
score again until the eighth inning
when both teams made a score in
their respective batting periods again
tying the game. It became so dark
at the end of the tenth inning that
it was necessary to call off the game.
Both teams played very well con
sidering the weather.
