X UU X POLITICAL ADVERTISEMENT. POLITICAL ADVERTISEMENT. I'OMTI A! AI>VKR,!sKS^f| FORMER CONGRESSMAN FRANK E. GUERNSEY i * ’ ■ ■ Candidate for Republican Nomination for United States Senator Mr. Guernsey is thoroughly familiar with public questions and national legislation. He served with eminent success in the lower branch ot Congress from 1908 to 1917. Has a wide acquaintance with public men at Washington. i Infinitely more important than the claim of any candidate to the nomination or renomination is the public right to equal repi e sentation in both branches of Congress for all sections of the State of Maine. To deny representation in Congress to a vast agricultural and ■ industrial section of the State, while crowding nearly all the rep resentation to which the State is entitled into the southwestern corner, violates every principle of Representative Government and it is against the business interests of the State as a whole. The present situation as to representation in Congress from Maine is as unsound politically as it is unsound from a business standpoint. Its continuance would weaken any political party that favored it. GUERNSEY SENATORIAL COMMITTEE By WALTER S. LADD, Secretary.

Ever green trees were arranged at the sides of the stage, and across the lower end of the I hall a solid bank of green formed a back- I ground for dozens and dozens of paper roses shading from Arne ican Beauty to pale pink At the rear of the stage against a white background, was a lattice work of green caught at intervals with deep pink. Lights were rose shaded, and the class motto, “Yesterday cannot be Recalled; Tomorrow cannot be Assured; Today only is Ours,” appeared above the platform, where were seated the graduat- j es; Rev. N. F. Atwood; Rev. Harold Le May; Miss Lillian G. Runells, principal; Evan Wilson, assistant; Supt E. E. rtod erick, and the Sophomores.

The presentation of gifts by Frances Bailey was an entertaining feat ure of the program. Every gift bore its “knock,” and the audience laughed even when they didn’t understand the allusion. The graduates received flowers from ad miring friends. Tne prophecy by Gladys Rose, ’23, was bright and amusing. For each member of the class a bright future was predicted. The date of graduation happening to coincide with the birthday anniversary of the valedictorian, she was presented with a birthday cake, gleaming with lighted candles, and said to be an electric cake because it was “light, and full of currants." It was borne by a dainty little tot, Virginia Stinson, the three years’ old daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Calvin Stinson. The tiny girl, dressed as a fairy, delivered the gift, and with much assurance stopped to bow to the group on the platform-before she left it. The piano duet by Caroline Colson and Robert Col son, was a plea ing uumoer, as was the soprano solo by Miss Violet Meyers, ac companied by Mrs. C. N. Meyers.
