I Class day was observed at the local
(hlgh school this afternoon, while this
( evening the senior class of the hisn
school will be entertained by the jun
.lors at the annual excursion on the
Mississippi. The undergraduates, in
, respect for the outgoing classmates,
' stood while the class of 1913 took
. seats this afternoon. The program
'which was rendered w&3 probably one
( of the best that has ever been given
at the local high school for many
.years. Miss Elizabeth Olmetead. of
the freshman class, played the march
as the seniors entered the room.

;, When the exercises opened the au-
ditorium of the local high school was
'. crowded, and Hubert Ward gave the
, address of welcome for Jhe seniors
with the hope that all would be agree
'ably entertained during the afternoon.
. Veda Grove proved to be one of the
best on the program, giving the hls
! tory of the class, which she told in
such a pleasing manner thnt all pres
ent were surprised to find how illus
trious has been the clasH of 1913 since
it entered the school in 1909. In a
well written paper she told of the con
quests of the seniors in years past.
The senior quartet next held the p!ice
of honor, and it rendered a beautiful
song. Glenn Reid. Glenn Fry, Earle
Xewland and Donald Vance compobed
this quartet. '

Clyde BulTum next presented the
gift to the school, which was decided
upon some time ago, but so well had
the graduates guarded their secret
that the presentation of the Victrola
came as a surprise to all. For the
last two months the Victrola had been
upon the platform in the auditorium,
since the day the Cable mutlc house
entertained the r.tudonts of the school
. with a concert of grand opera music,
but none of the undergraduates even
guessed what the gift of the seniors
was to be. The presentation was
made by Clyde Ituffum. and it is prob
able that the Victro'.a will play a most
useful end entertaining part in years
to come at the hitth school. The ac
ceptance of the gift was made in an
appropriate manner by Charlotte Mur
ray, of the freshmen class.

The annual excursion of the students
of the Rock Island high school will be
held this evening. The steamer St.
Paul has been chartered by the grad
uates and undergraduates and every
one who expects to attend is antici
pating a pleasant time. The St. Paul j
took the Davenport Grocery Clerks'
association for a ride on the river last
nirht and although the weather was a
trifle chilly the crowd enjoyed the trip
- It was announced this morning that
the steamer Helen Blair will take the
Ge' mania Singing society of Davenport
to Clinton next Sunday. The boat will
leave at 8:30 o'clock Sunday morning
and return the same evening.
The Tri-City District Luther league
will give its annual boat, excursion
next Wednesday evening, this excur
sion, as usual, taking the place of the
league's tecond quarterly meeting.
This year the league is looking for
ward to even a larger crowd than us
ual, and in order to be able to accom
modate all cf its friends, the league
has this year chartered the large and
beautiful excursion steamer St. Paul.
The St. Paul will not enter the Mo
line pool, and so will touch at Rock Is
land and Davenport only.
In former years this excursion has
proven to be one of the most popular
.'n the whole season, and all indica
tions are that this year will be no ex
ception in this respect. As usual, the!
Augus'ana College band will furnish
the nrjpic, and there will be a plenti
ful simply of good things to eat oa
hoard ae well as a plentiful amount of
soft diinks. The contract calls for j
