A brief but nard fougbt clash occurred last night between members of tbe junior and senior classes of tlie higb school. The seniors, coming from the school after the -commencement exercises, were aroused'by the sight of a 1919 banner nailed high up on a telephone pole. When sufficient numbers arrived to "combat" the juniors, the rush was on and a battle royal ensued for a time. A West Side boy started the offensive for the seniors. Several seniors Sol a start up the pole only to be Seventy-five members of the class, of 1918 received their diplomas at UM commencement exercises held in tio high school last night.

The honor students delivered their addresses and the diplomas were presented by C. Roy Hetzel, president of the school board. The commencement exercises this year carried a patriotic tone, each ot tbe three honor students speaking on, different phases of war and liberty, and Br. Thwing's subject was "Loyalty." The large auditorium %vas well filled for the exercises. Music was furnished by Kiferle's orchestra. At the opening of the exercises too orchestra played "The Star-Spangled Eanner" and tbe invocation was delivered by Rev. Ellis B. Burgess. Lawrence "Weaver of South Connellsville, honor student in the commercial department, delivered the first address, "Republics, the Ladder to Liberty." His theme was excellent and showed much, study.

The juniors were easy on him the first time on account of his frail "frame." They eased him gently to the ground, slapped, his wrist and told him to run home. His fighting blood was boiling, however, and ho made a second attempt to go up. He did not fare so well the second time. The defenders grasped him by head and feet and with a heave tossed him over a hedge fence. He was out of the fight, but his spirits were high. Though he did not get the banner he had drawn blood.
