The program of the closing- axeroia
es of the Hood Kivei high aobool be
gan wi'h tbe baccalaureate sermon
preached by Kev W. O. Ullraore at
the Congregational church on Sunday
evening. May 12 Hev. W. O. Evans
assisted by otf riug the invooation,
and Kev. J. W. Ualdridge led In the
responsive rending.
A obolr. en iu posed ot blgn aobool
students, muii several appropriate se
lections. (Jly Urook, aooompanied
Miss Uladyp Hartley, rendeied
well executed cornet solo, and Mtas
Florence Hanoa favored toe audieno
itb a beaut ilul vocal solo. The
music both vocal and instrumental,
was rendered in a moat commendable
way and fully appreciated by tbe vast
audience present.
The program of inuiaday evening
wa-i rendered at tbe opera house. Ihe
building was packed to tbe doors by
eager attentive listeners. All who
were permitted to be preent were
ifc-aly pleased witb tbe degree of ex
cellenoy that cbaractized the subjeot
matter and delivery ot toe various
umbers on the program.
The platloriu :was beautifully and
uniquely ai ranged and decoiated. Id
tbe center was the large banner bear
ng the figures '07 taatefi.lly displayed
in the class colors, both winga of tbe
stage were decorated with vailons
oolored penants, representing all tbe
higher institutions ot earning in Ore
gon. Washington nd California.
The opening song oy toe school
obolr, led by Frotessor Crouse, witb
Miss Jennie hdslngton as aooompan-
ist on the piano, aent a t hi ill or pride
and patriotism through every mind
aud heart in tbe vast audienoe.
The graduating olasa of '07 was left
alone on the stage as the cboir passed
otf. and lor tbe remainder of the ev
ening occupied the time with their
diverse literary productions.
Miss Maude Merrell presented her
subject "Oregon Literature." in a
t vie seldom equaled Dy a student or
her years. The spirit of loyaty to our
state and nation, which waa current
n her oration, found a reciprocal re
snonse from her eager hearers, une
reached a olimax in her suojeot wneo
she referred to personal conlributiona
made by tbe noted men and a omen or
Oieson In the eurionmeut or me in
telleotual and moral lite of our great
common wealth.
Miss Grace Prattler, who waa de
igned aa tbe part of her olass, fully
met the expectations ot her classmates
as tbe portrayed the beauty and auo-
limitv ot tbe opportunities afforded
bv school lite in which to enrich toe
future periods of life.
Miss Uladys Hartley roiiowed with
vocal solo entitled "If Thou Dld'st
Love Me." Tbe musio lovers of our
itv are always delighted witb Miss
Hartley's selections, and many of her
ooal solos nave been superior to
those rendered by imported talent.
Miss Gertrude Howe next presented
her sbjeot "The Leaders of Nations,"
with tbe close anaiaysis oi a states
man and student of tbe political econ
omy ot tbe nations, her deduotlon
and conclusions 'made from her oom-
parltlve statements were weighty and
convincing. Her convictions, upon
the rights of childhood and tbe duties
ot citizenship were inspiring and con.
rioting. Miss tiowe would be emi
nently fitted for a publio speaker.
Ferdinand BtruoK touowea witn an
address on the subject of "Charac
ter." Aa Ib known Ferdinand had bat
little time in which to prepate his-
subjeot. He is young man who will
make bis mark in the world, inia is
evident from tbe ability displayed in
his address-
Murray Kay followed by tbe .rendi
tion ot a most excellent baritone nolo,
entitled . "Tbe Old Mill. " The great
audience fatrly shook tbe building
witb their applause. Mr. Kay ie
sponded with another selection that
was highly pieasmg.
Ihe entire auaienoe waa eageny
naltinn (or the class history and pro
phecy aa it was to be announced by
J. Elwood Luokey. who bad been
chosen foi this duty. Tbe young pro
phet proceeded with tbe oaution ot a
seer and proved nimeu a master ui
th situation bv delivering tbe follow
log history and prophecy concerning
his classmates:
Tonlaht 1 am honored by my class
mates bv tbe position ot nhtorian
and oioohet of the class ot 1907. We
tee) proud ot our oiass not aione iur
the eood woik accomplished, but be
naiiHA we will oe (ne urnt uiuss u
graduate from tbe Hood Klvsr high
school. We also feel proud ol tha taot
tbat we have held our olasa together
to tbe present number of nine in face
of the conditions tbat have existed.
Knnh vnar when bur work waa done
wa were tbe highest class and did not
know whether a new grade would be
added tor us; but the grades were
added and .we stayed. Although ' we
lost a few' of our classmates we are
proud of tbe taot tbat we nave Kept as
mnnv ah we nave.
We realize that in nnismug tne uiku
.. . .. ... .1 L t . L
aobool work we are only beginning
our life work; but we believe mat we
are now better prepared to cope with
the questions ot life and maintain our
Axiateuee among struggling humanity.
We are also sia I tbat tbe majority ot
the class do not iutend to stop tbelr
Adunation with tbe bigb soool tat
that thflv Intend to enter tbe college
and universities to continue tbe'r
studies.
We hope that our (present success
will bs only a beginning or oar lire
success, and tbat our present bonds of
friend ship gained through co-operative
work and association daring onr
school days will continue throughout
life. Though our journeys may lead
by different paths and we may have
.lltfeient functions to perform it any
ef our number should need a helping
band it will be fieely granted by all.
The history ot the olass of 1907 will
Deoessarally be presented in two di
visions, one of the past an to and in
cluding tbe present time and one of
the fntnre.
The olasa of 1907 weighs 1240 pounds
and averages five feet, aeven inobea
bigb. Fire of tbe number are native
bom uiegonuna, white three are
Hood Kiverltee. Miss Uraoe Piatber
haa tbe distinction of being tbe first
member ot tbe class beginning in
1895. Mlas Gertrude liowa waa last to
enter our ranka in 19U5. Two mem-
bet occupy poaltiona on the high
aobool debating team and three posi
tions of the aobool base ball team are
held by tbe senior class.
Edythe Lucille Copple first saw the
light ot day in tbe valley ao tamoua
for its strawberries and apples. This
historic apot lies about 25 miles north
of Mt. Hood and two miles south of
tbe Columbia river, fcibe waa bright
baby and though somewhat spoiled
never got Into any aeiloua dtnioaity.
The fear of getting oaugbt usually
kept her within due bounds. She haa
attended aobool tor 13 yeaia. Bhe re
ceived her publio school education at
Odell, but entered the Hood Klver
bigb aobool lu 100J anl baa attended
tegularly since tbat time. For elastic
ity and good long aervice she says
that she would recommend Ueeman'a
pepain gum. Edythe waa born De
cember 9, 1880. making her 20 yeara,
five months aud eight daya old. Her
ambition la to become a trained
nurse. Edythe ia very kind hear d
and generally weara a pleasant ooun
teuauoe which makee her a geneial
favorite especially among tbe boys.
liy request 1 will not mention tbe
size of her shoes.
Millard Clinton Merrell ia also
web-foot, being born at Oregon City
September 29, 1890, and ia at the piaa-
ent time 16 yeara of age. He says he
does not favor the evolution from tbe
theory tbat man ia descended from
the monkey but rather that the mon
key la descended trom man. lie
points to several examples wbloh
will not name here. He haa dark
wooly hair, bright blue eyes, exoep
tionally large ears aud small dainty
feet. He first started to aobool at tbe
ase of five and being somewhat of a
rover baa attended not less than 12
schools before coming to Hood Hiver
bigb school In 1905. He ia Ove feet,
10 inohes tall and weighs 167 pounds
avoirdupois. In politics be says he
tavors tbe anarchist doctrine but gen
(rally votes socialist. He is in lavor
or government ownership or railroads
but tor tbe aake of argument generally
speaks for the trusts.
On January 22, 1887 occurred tbe
birth ot Grace Frances Pratber. 3be
has the title of being the pre'tlest
baby In town. She always won tbe
blue ribbon at tbe baby show and al
though she does not enter them any
mere 1 am aure tbat she would win if
good looks and a amiling taoe count
ed. Miss.Oiace is at the present time
20 years old, ia five feet, four inohes
tall and weighs 105 pounds. The cause
of her amall aize ia said to be her
fondness for sugar when young; this
somewhat stunted her growth. Bhe
has sky blue eyes and brown ourly
bair. She first started to aobool in
1895 with Misa Irene Calltson aa bet
first teaoher. Her ambition Is to be
come an artist.
Pear Bateile Bradley waa Lorn iq
Litchfield. Nebraska, ' October 30.
1888. Kemoved to Hood Kiver ao
entered the school here In 1900. She
ia verr niuob in favor of woman suf
frage although she says very little
s bout it. She started to sohool at the
age ot aeven years. When asked the
ooloi of her eyes aud hair it could
not be decided upon unless it should
be oallod brindle brown. Pearl la an
accomplished musician and usually
fills all literary and social meetings
