: Significant as the largest claiss ever
araduated from the Omaha High school,
257 students, 159 girls and ninety-eight
boys of the class of 1912 were given di
plomas showing that they had success
fully completed their academic course of
fours years study at the annual com
mencement exercises held at the Uran
dels theater last evening. Superintendent
Ellis U. Graff presided.
; Prow the boxes to the lofty second
balcony every available seat was filled
with mothers, fathers, brothers, sisters,
relatives and friends of the graduates,
and standing room In the back of the
theater was all taken long before the
curtain rolled up.
Massed In ascending tiers of seats
banked on the sides and In front with
potted palms and huge bouquets of
blooms, the graduating class formed a
picture long to be remembered by all
present. The dainty white gowns pf the
"sweet girl graduates" and the spotloss
serge of the boys mingled Into an In
teresting scene full of warm-toned feet
lng and sparkles of animation.
The program In Itself was an Innovation
,vfrom high school commencements of for
mer years, as there was no speaker of
the evening to dwell upon the students'
minds with the responsibilities and hard
ness of the "cruel, cold world." Instead
''. a1' "program, of nine student numbers,
thj-ee essays, three orations and three
musical selections, was given.
V Tet when the curtain was run down
ind each boy and girt, diploma In hand,
itepped out Into the night the serious
side of life's burdens was jmst as firmly
Imprinted on every mind as If an hour
of commencement aphorisms had been
said by soma learned speaker.
Cadets Ciet Ortitfeute.
' Following the Invocation by Itev. 13. R.
Curry of the Calvary Baptist church, a
stalwart spectacle which always tcndJ
towards bearing out the Importance of
; military training for high school lads,
was presented when the forty-three com
missioned officers of the 1911-1912 cadet
regiment were given military certificates
' of proficiency in tactics and the manual
of arms by M. T. Sears, chairman of the
; teachers' committee of the Board of
Heads up, earest In bearing and togged
out In the regulation cadet coat, white
duck trousers and necessary equipment,
the officers marched Into the glare of the
footlights In pairs. After marking time
they were called to a halt and faced the
audience. Mr. Sears then read each boy's
; name and his rank In the drill corps and
two white-garbed little girls handed out
the cadet "sheepskins."
: After the award of these certificates
Superintendent Graff introduced each of
'the students who took part in the pro
"We see coming into view the dlreo
.primaries, the Initiative and referendum
and other progressiva measures whose
object Is to bring the people and the rep-
' resentativea of ,the people into a close
bond of union," said Carson Hathawar
'in his flve-mlnute oration on "Thi
I Growth of Democracy." "As a person
can be judged by the company he keeps.
so also can the character of political
, measures be judged by the class of Poo-
'pie who support them."
Function of Government.
Philip Johnson touched upon a serloui
topic, "Obedience to the Law." He said
No young woman, m the Joy of
t coming motherhood, should neglect
: to Dreoart her system for the chysl
! cat ordeal she is to undergo. The
'; health of both herself and the coming
child depends largely upon the care
she bestows upon herself during the
! waiting months. Mother's Friend
prepares the expectant mother's sys
tem for the coming event, and Its use
makes her comfortable during all the
term. It works with and for nature,
and by gradually expanding all tis
sues, muscles and tendons. Involved,
and keeping the breasts in good con
dltlon, bring! the woman to the crisis
in splendid physical condition. The
bi.tr, too, is more apt to be perfect and
strong where the mother has thus
prepared herself for nature's supreme
r function. No better advice could be
given a young expectant mother than
that she use Mother's Friend; it is a
medicine that has protea it value
in thousands of
- book tor expect
ant mothers which contains much
valuable information, and ciany sug
gestions of a helpful nature.

The beginner'! grade of the Castellar
Street Presbyterian Sunday school has
maintained for three years and a half
the best average attendance of any be
ginners' class in Nebraska, This Is a
record to be proud of aiJH Is excuse
enough for the kiddles to .hold their
head high. '
"The function of good government Is to
secure to each person as much liberty as
Is consistent with the welfare of his M
lowmon. Therefora the problem of gov
ernment is to determine where restraint
shall end and liberty begin. But as the
dividing line depends upon the character
of the people and the neada of the Urn?,
It la an uncertain line. And so in demo
cratic government where liberty U.tho
rulo, the tendency Is to limit authority
too closely and to extend freedom over
too broad an area,".
In an essay, "Real Life," Miss Marjorle
Johnston touched upon the various ways
In which the twentieth century man and
woman might enjoy the pleasures of llfo
and how business men might assume
their work with more test when "real
life" was their motto.
'In reach of every pupil in high school
is a great and lasting pleasure that de
rived from study," said Miss Viola
Pierce In speaking on "The Receptive
Attitude." "Many fall to attain this,
not because they lack genius or fluency
of diction, nor because of personal rank
or Influence, but rather their thought!
are vtiled and they fail to see that the
pleasure of study and school in general
is free to all. If a pupil once passes bs
yond the stage of measuring things by
high marks he feels the sest of mental
activity and learns to enjoy his hour of
tudy as he relishes a good meal."
Miss Katherlne Davenport recited an
original blank verse poem, "A Mountain
Stream," written by herself. One of Its
stansaa was as follows: '
According to its mode, it whispers
Its baby longings when a tiny stream,
Imprisoned in the dark beneath the
Or, struggling from chill swaddling
clothes 01 snow,
It trickled forth, like any toddling child,
To meet the buffets of the unfeeling
In an oration of "Opportunity," Fred
Ryptns said, "Countless are the qualities
which produce success. The leaders of
the words have each had a characteristic,
which raised them to their greatness. It
Is possible to Include these attributei
of success in two words 'opportunity'
and 'ability.' "
All of the musical numbers on the
program were worthy of praise, espe
cially the vlollt) selection, "Masurka de
Conert," by Edward L'nderland, who
showed perfect control of the bow, add
his piece held the attention and Inter
est of everyone present. Miss Haiel Wil
liams with a soprano solo, "An Even
tng Love Song," and . Edwin Rails with
a piano selection, "Polonaise," by Moss
kowskl, were the other student numbers.
Xotable t'laaa Record.
In presenting the class to the Board
of Education tor graduation, Superin
tendent Graft stepped out of the usual
path of the evening's program and made
a little speech. "This cla s ' has made
a notable record," aald Superintendent
Graff, "both In pursuit of studies and In
activities In all lines of Interschoastlc
life. .Together with the midterm class,
which graduated In February of this year
with a roster ' of twenty, the class of
1912, logically speaking, has a total en
rollment of 277. In bidding farewell -to
this cans I extend best wishes and good
will to every member." A fitting tribute
was also paid the high school faculty
for their work In preparing the students
Charles R. Courtney, president of the
Board of Education, , was thea Intro
duced and after a speech of congratula
tion to the seniors, announced the pre
sentation of 25? "sheepskins." Each
diploma bore the official seal of the
Board of Education and was tied with
a bow of red and gray ribbon, the class
colors. . The diplomas were liven out

Both policy and standard
