The annual commencement exer cises of the Bloomsburg State Normal School began Sunday afternoon with the Baccalaureate sermon by Rev. Henry L. Jones, of Wilkes-Barre. The reverend gentleman took for his text Luke 6 1^9 —"For there went virtue out of him, and healed them all." It was a fine sermon, delivered in a scholarly manner, full of helpful ad vice to the many students who have completed their studies at the school, and cheering words to those who are just entering uporl their school life. FIELD SPORTS. Monday was an ideal day for Ath letic sports, and a large sized crowd lined the Park on every side. A great deal of interest has been mani fested in this department during the past term. Following are the summaries: The first event was the Broad Jump. Seven men entered. The winners were, Ist Hayward 18 ft. 4 in., Appleman 18 ft., 1 in., C. Derr 17 ft. 9 in. Next came the Running High Jump. Six men tried, the winners being Ist Appleman 5 ft., 2nd Hayward 4 ft. ix in., 3rd McGuffie 4 ft 9 in. The new bicycle track was tried for racing purposes for the first time. It is a quarter mile track, the men rac ing against time. The winners were Brandon 32 sec., Bean 33 sec., Klingaman 33 2-5 sec. Bruce Hou sel then tried for a track record mak ing the distance in 3 1 seconds. The 100 Yard Dash followed the bicycle race. The best - previous re cord by the Normal boys was 111-5 sec.

The 16 lb. Shot Put was won by McGuffie 34 ft. 5 in., Artley took second place at 28 ft., Klingaman coming third at 26 ft. 9 in. The old record of this event was also broken.

Pealer won easily by a vault of 9 ft. 4 in., Roberts came second at 9 ft 1 in., Appleman third at 8 ft. 9 in. Pealer then tried the vault at 9 ft. 6 in. and cleared the pole in fine form.

Bran don and Appleman were tied for third place. MONDAY AFTERNOON. A treat of unusual interest and merit was given to the lovers of music by Misses Brader and Hicks of the graduating class assisted by the orchestra and chorus this afternoon in the Auditorium. It was an entirely new feature of the commencement season and re flects great credit upon those in charge of the Department. If the perform ance of the afternoon is a safe criter ion these young ladies who are about to graduate from the Music Depart ment have the qualifications that should insure abundant success in the field which they are entering. Their work shows the patient effort with which the past year has been filled and speaks volumes for the painstak ing care of their instructors. The work of the orchestra and of the choruses was of the usual high order which has made these organi zations so piominent and pleasing a feature of the school life. The obligato solo by Miss Bowman is worthy of special mention. The following is the program which was rendered in lull. PROGRAM. Beethoven, Andante Op. 28 Laura Brader. Barnard "Minnehaha'' (Duet for Flute and Clarinet with Orchestra' Accompaniment.) Messrs. Quaranta and Foulke. Beethoven Op. 2 No. 3. Allegro con brio—Adagio—Scherzo. Elsie Hicks.

At the conclusion of the program all adjourned to the Park to witness the last base ball game of the season, between the Bloomsburg High School and the Normal. It cannot be said that the contest was a thing ot beauty, as errors, of a very rank order were numerous. The High School boys could not gauge the delivery of the opposing pitcher, which is responsible for their down fall. Score : Normal 2 o 1 2 o 1 1 o x—7. Bloomsburg 00020020 o—4.

ENT, Bloomsburg, Pa., Mv DEAR SIR :— Your favor of the 21 st is at hand and noted and reply ing to the same I have to say that while on the trip visiting the soldiers with the Governor, I suggested to him that he ought to take a Company from Bloomsburg, as I had learned from Lieut. Polk and others that your county was not represented in the army. He replied to me then that Columbia County was one of the places he had on his list for the for mation of a company. ' I will write him again to day on the subject and hope I may be able to serve you. Yours, very truly, J. HENRY COCHRAN. O. W. Ent is First Lieut, of the Company, and is working hard to get the boys in shape for an inspection in case one should be made.
