The class of 'SS was then brought

a graduate in the class of 'GO, intro
duced them formally to the alumni
in a very eloquent speech, which
was feelingly responded to by Presi
dent Miller, as ho welcomed the
new-comers to a home in the ahunni
association of the Willamette uni

of feeling, as to elicit the sympathies
of her audience ill behalf of the
"homeless girl," and her hope that
the.power of crime was not "in tho
blood" of little Ben.

name with a pen, but generally
known to tho public as Chas. B.
Moores, then read the annals of the
alumni, which proved very interest
ing. These annals recited thewherc
abouts of nearly every living member
of the association, and paid glowing
tributes to the memory of those who
have gone before. A cornet solo by
Prof. Coomer, and benediction by
Rev. F. I. Tower closed the literary
