The ninth annual commencement of the New Ulm high school has come and gone and there is now added to the history of the local schools the record of another class which has graduated with high credit. All of the hard work and worry incident to the closing of the school year, together with the earnest effort on the part of the graduates and their instructors in preparing for commencement that momentous event in the lives of all who are so fortunate as to become graduates—was successfully completed, completed, and that, too, with honor to the members of the class and their instructors—an instructors—an honor which is shared with them by all the people of New Ulm, who take ]ustifiable pride in our schools. The graduating exercises were held last Wednesday evening in the district court room, which was prettily decorated decorated with flowers and plants, and filled to its utmost capacity with an eager audience. Throughout the big hall every seat was occupied and late comers -were compelled to accept standing standing room. Seated within the railing were the graduates, their relatives, members of the board of education and others, while near the class appeared the motto, "Launched, But Not An-| chorea," in large gold letters upon a maroon field. The scene presented was exquisite, the beautiful white gowns of the girls contrasting sharply with the dark clothing of the young men. Never has a finer or more meritorious meritorious program been prepared for a similar similar occasion, and it was carried out faultlessly. All of the essays were treated originally and delivered in a manner most pleasing. In opening, the high school orchestra rendered a selection which was greatly appreciated appreciated and then the salutatory was given by Stanley E. Bingham. He took as his subject '"Our Early Navy" and drew a vivid picture of revolutionary times, when the foundation was being laid for the maritime force which was in time to rout Spain from the seas. Naval battles which have reflected credit upon the American arms from the famous engagement fought by John Paul Jones down to the present were handled stirringly and the speaker speaker contrasted the steel vessels of today with the wooden bulwarks which first won the United States its place as a nation. HIGH SCHOOL GRADUATING CLASS 1904. Stanley Bingham, Fred Hubbard, Cleveland Frederick, Arthur Dengler, Oscar Boock. Louise Jahnke, Helga Bolstad, Mary Rasmussen. Cornelia Manderfeld, Anna Dietz. Miss Cornelia Manderfeld contributed contributed a German recitation, "George Urban," Urban," and after the applause had subsided subsided the chorus sang, "The New Hail Columbia." In the class history Miss Helga Bolstad told of the twelve years of patient effort which had been necessary necessary to obtain the certificate of graduation, graduation, while Cleveland Frederick, in the prophecy, sketched bright futures for the members of the class of 1904. An oration, "America's a was very ably given by Arthur Dengler. Dengler. He paid a tribute to the high places occupied by American institutions institutions when compared with those of the world and declared that this country's boast could be that out of the heterogeneous heterogeneous collection of nationalities gathered here there had emanated a spirit destined to triumph and conquer. conquer. He was followed by Miss Louise Louise H. Jahnke, the valedictorian, who spoke on the subject: "Our Schools." In the course of this she cited the fact that Minnesota now appropriates more money for educational purposes than any state in the Union, with the possible possible exception of Texas, and closed by extending thanks to the faculty, board of education, parents and friends of the graduates. After the class song, written by the boys, had been given, Supt. E. T. Critchett introduced Rev. G. L. Morrill Morrill of Minneapolis. His theme was "The Golden Fleece" and he spoke with fluency and force. Parts of his discourse were strikingly sublime and called for the heartiest commendation of the audience, but following close upon this he gave utterance to sentiments sentiments that met with little warmth in his audience. As a speaker he is strikingly strikingly original and an entertainer of the highest degree as was borne out by the closeness with which the large audience audience followed him and remained through the entire address. It was such as both children and other people people could understand and enjoy. Doctor Morrill presented the graduates graduates with their diplomas and when this ceremony had been finished the orchestra orchestra clo&ed the program with another fine selection. Rates to Summer School. This "paper has received a circular from President C. H. Cooper of the Mankato Normal school, calling attention attention to the fact that special railway railway rates have been granted for the state summer school which will be held in Mankato from June 20th until July 30th.
