8T. FRANCIS COMMENCEMENT.
A crowded bouse greeted the class
of 1911 of St. Francis Academy in the
auditorium last Monday evening, to
witness the commencement exercises.
The class numbered six young la
dies, three of whom. Misses Nellie
Ryan, Nora Tomaa and Anna Laden
burg, graduated from the academic
course, while Miss Ryan, together
with Misses Clara Abts and Angelina
Shields graduated from the piano
class of the music department nnd
Miss Margaret Snyder from tbe yio
The program opened with an en
trance march, played by an ensemble,
consisting of Misses Lauretta Jungles
and Clara Jonas at one piano and
Misses Mabel Reinbard and Antonia
Willenbring at another. This was
followed by a class song of welcome
by the school, and this In turn by a
much appreciated piano solo by Miss
An oration on the subject of
"Belles-Lettres" was then delivered
by Miss Anna Laudenburger. She di
vided the subject into three divisions.
history, poetry and literature, giving
at the same time a brief descriptive il
lustration of each, and making short
references to some of the leadig ex
ponents of the several sub-divisions in
which she divided her subject.
A piano solo by Miss Nellie Ryan
was the next number and it was well
rendered and enthusiastically received
by the audience.
"Successful Failures" was the sub
ject of an oration by Miss Nora
Thomas. She deplored the methods
of some people in their scramble for
wealth, which was used to no good
purpose, and which added nothing to
tbe things which were worth while to
its possessors. She also referred to
some of the people which the world
has called great for the time being.
but when put to the test were found
to be sadly lacking. On the other
hand, she also made references to
some people who went about doing
good in a quiet, unobtrusive way, and
while the world called them failures
it was because the world did not know
of the good deeds done by them.
The next number, a violin selection
by Miss Margaret Snyder, showed
well the training received. andalao
that the young lady possesses consid
erable talent in handling ber chosen
instrument. Following this was an
other class song, a tribute to "Our
Flag," and a piano solo, by Miss Clara
Abts, each of which received hearty
and merited applause.
The next and last number on the
program was the valedictory oration,
which was delivered by Miss Nellie
Ryan. This oration is printed in full
in another column.
We wish we were able to present
each of the orations at length to our
readers, but this would be impossible
at this time. Those who were fortun
ate enough to be present and to hear
them, however, know that each of the
young ladies in the class, whether in
oratory or music, acquitted themselves
in such a manner as to reflect great
credit not only upon themselves, but
also in the magnificent institution of
which they are now alumni.
Following the regular program,
Father MarceHlnus appeared on the
rostrum and made a few remarks ap
propriate to the occasion and of ad
vice to the young ladies who were
about to leave the school and enter
actively into a broader field. He then
delivered the diplomas and medals to
the graduates, and made the an
nouncements of the pupils in the
school who had passed from their
respective grades to he next higher,
presenting each with a medal and a
certificate of promotion.
After this had been done, the grad
uates and their parents repaired to
the spacious dining hall of the Acad
emy, where a sumptuous repast had
been prepared In their honor. The
tables were tastily decorated with fo
liage and candles were placed at each
In the center of the table was
placed a large mirror, representing
the sea of life, on which the guests
of honor were embarking, while small
gondolas represented the ships in
which they were to set sail.
The alumni of the Academy have
never organized into an association as
such, although each year at com
mencement a considerable number of
the graduates of former years are
present to extend welcome to the new
members. The-Sisters in charge an
nounce that it is their purpose to or
ganize an alumni association within
the next year, and such an organiza
tion cannot but stimulate and keep
alive among its members the memo
ries of the most pleasant period of
their lives the days of the sweet and
innocent associations of childhood

The Y. M. C. A. baseball least weat
to Central City last Thursday aad
there is a hard hitting contest
trimmed their opponents, 11 to 19.
Both teams fielded well and it was
not until the 12th inning that the
winning run was shoved over the pan.
Central scored three times in the
opener, while Columbus got two la
the first and one In the second. The
home boys did not get any more until
the eighth. At the end of the sev
enth the score book showed 8-3 In
Central's favor. Then the bakxm
started and Columbus commenced to
crawl, not on errors but hits. Three
runs in the eighth made It 8-6, but
Central got two more in her half.
However, the home team was not to
be denied and by bard bitting pushed
four runs over in the ninth and tied
it up. Todenhoft tightened In the
extra innings and Central could not
hit klm to any extent. In the 12th
Beck walked, stole second and scored
at Todenhoft's single to left. Central
went out one, two, three in their half
and the game was won. Not satisfied
with losing tbe first game the C. C.
bunch invited us over to atay and
play the next day. We did. play on a
diamond ankle deep in mud and lost
in seven innings. 5-2. Vierguts threw
a dandy game for the home boys, the
only inning they touched him being
the nth and that told the tale. Lin
strum and Westbrook scored tbe
home boys runs. Both teams hit
pretty hard, the Columbus outfield
shutting off several runs at the plate
by good throws. Considering the fact
that the boys played tbe beet they
had at Central City, half of them sal

worthy opponents. Those making the
