treaty as originally presented. The
concessions will, instead, be pre
sented in the form of a supplemen
tary agreement defining the pro
cedure of tr. transportation com

This new solution which is ex

fixation of a definite monetary
total for reparation tr which the
French object rn the ground that
announcement of any sum which it
is considered possible to exact in

was then that the thirty-live
men and women received '
tl:eir diplomas and completed
their school careers.
When the large double doors were
rolled back, disclosing seated on the
stage members of the class, together
with the speaker, a part of the Hoar 1
of Education and the faculty, u joy
ous wave of applause swept the audi
torium. When the applause bad died
away. Rev. A. V. Hunter, pastor of
I he First Methodist church, sterped
forward and with raised hand asked
silence while he invoked the bless
ing of Almighty Coil on the class,
jiist about to enter upon the world's
Ltern activities. He was followed
by Miss Helen Roberts, in a piano
solo, "The Last Hope." So well was
this rendered that spontaneous ap
plause came from all parts of the
house. Mis Roberts, who is a "mem
ber of the class, is a favorite with
the music loving people of Platts
mouth and her appearance is always
heralded with pleasure. The Misses
Gladys and Goldye Kaffenberger, also
members of the class, favored the
audience with a vocal duet, serenade,
"Spring Time." These excellent
singers were likewise greeted by a
tumult of applause.
Introduced by Superintendent G.
E. DeWolf, the Rev. Leon 1). Young,
pastor of the First Presbyterian
churidi, at Lincoln, gave the address
of the evening, choosing as his sub
ject. "To Have and to Hold." He
spoke generally of life and it3
"worth-whiles." dealing first with
the period of childhood the boys
and the girls advancing to youths
when as young men and young wom
en their duties and obligations to
society become more and more ex
tended, v Finally he arrived at the
middle aged and lastly the period of
parenthood when the task of rearing
children in paths of righteousness
and virtue devolves upon every fath
er and mother. Confessing to being
but 47 years of age himself, he was
unable to quote from his ripe fund
of experience in the period of old,
age, but which he averred would

which he had dwelt. . Beginning
with the little things in life, which
he advised safeguarding against, he
expanded to the things of more im
port, but which he said must of
needs have their beginning in the
smaller faults. Among other well
given advice, he said, "Find the best
values in life, and keep them to the
end; trust in God, trust in yourself
and -trust in your friends if you
would succeed in life." And again
"Do not be afraid, have courage and
enthusiasm, do things, for the world

Dr. Young declared that follow
ing the settlement of this war, the
world will have to be remade and
the task will fall to the young peo
pie of the nations, who in the next
fifteen years will be called upon to
perforin seemingly miraculous re
constructive tasks. And the people
who are now emerging from the pub
lie schools and colleges of the land
will be best fitted to step into these
places of responsibility and climb to
the top of the ladder of success.
Continuing his admonishment, he
said, "Gather the best things in life
and keep them, for they are yours to
have and to hold through life. lie
yourself; be natural for by so being
you will make friends and keep
them. Scatter flowers along life's
pathway as you go. Have confidence
and do not lose step with the wori 1
or the times; keep in touch with civ
ilization, for when you lose confi
dence and no longer have faith in
yourself, you are hopelessly lost."
He said all people could make mis
takes in life and "come back." but
declared that to the one who is well
advanced in years the task is doubly
hard. Hence he would warn his
listeners to guard well now against
possible future mistakes in the later
vcars. He advocated, in line with
the words of K v. McCluskt-y in his
baccalaureate address, that the one
treat thing in life is the giving of
unselfish service, declaring that the
world will be discriminating and
will readily know if our eiforts are
true and genuine or merely make
believe. In closing he expressed the confi-
donee that the members of the prcs-

labored twenty-five years or

intellect to the point of attaining the
i-.reatest success in life. His address

od with applause, being a very pop-
olar young musician of the city. To
piano accompaniment by Miss Helen
Roberts, he played an "11 Trovatore"
selection most artistically.
Then followed the presentation of
the class of 1919 to the Hoard of
Education by Supt. G. E. DeWolf.
wbo spoke of the cost of graduation
from the standpoint of work and the
care parents and teachers have been
to through the intervening years be
tween the primary grades and the
finished class of young men and
voting women ready to go out into
the world and make for themselves
a place therein.
E. II. Wescott, secretary of the
Hoard of Education. accepted the
class and prefaced the presentation
of the diplomas with a few timely
remarks In which he said the di
plomas were not certificates of suc
cess in life, neither werw they for
mulas that would guarantee the so
lution of Jife's problems, but rather
a certification of their actions and
acquirements thus far, and he hoped
thatv in each case the pupil would
mae success crown his of her fu
ture efforts in life.
Accompanied by Miss Roberts,
Miss Gretchen Mackprang, mathe
matics instructor and senior class
sponsor, sang 'The Swallows, a most
difficult vocal selection, in pleasing
manner. The number was received
enthusiastically with applause from
every hand. '
Secretary E. II. Wescott appeared
to present gifts from the seniors to
Miss Mackprang and to Supt. G. E.
DeWolf, for the part they had had
in helping to perfect the class play
and guide the class through the
closing year of their public school
career. The small package given
Miss Mackprang contained a beauti
ful cameo broach, and although un
aware of its contents at the time she
responded by thanking the students
for their kindly remembrance, as
did Supt. DeWolf. over the traveling
bag given him. declaring he appre-
ciated tioir ivio rhoice. and that
he would have much use for the gift
at the school in the east which' he
