Commencement Tluii-sday and tho
Address wns Delivered by Prof.
Tho class of 1002, tho largest class
which over graduated from tho Iola
High School, finished Its work and
with appropriate oxcrciscs eolobrated
tho event and rccolved diploma.
Tho program of tho ovening began
with an invocation by Kov. D. D.
Shuoy, who asked tho guldanco ofjGod's
hand In tho lives of tho young people
just entering upon their duties as men
and women. The IIIj;h School chorus,
composed of undergraduates trained
by Prof. J. E. Henderson, then
creditably rendered tl.o chorus:
"Joy, Joy, Freedom Today."
Miss Mitchell then Introduced Prof.
Templln,, of tho chair of philosophy
at tho State University, who dollvcred
tho commencement address.
Mr. Tomplln said that deep Interest
was always felt In graduating clasTs
and In jouug ooplo because of imp
possibilities they represented, and
thero was always a temptation to
spoak words of advice. But ho did
not wish to bo (remembered solely as a
part of tho joyous ceremony which
marked their graduation; rather as
having given them food for reflection
Ho took as a text tho Biblical verso;
Whosoover shall seek to savo his life
shall loso it; and whoso shall seek to
lose his lifo shall preserve it. This
has beon Interpreted In various ways.
But tho speaker believed it might bo
understood as a statement of tho bio
logical law, although it is considered
a far cry from tho theory of natural
selection and tho survival of the fittest
to BIblo teaching. Tho idea of tho sur--vlval
of the fittest Is not pleasant as
applied to humanity. Throughout
Nature It works harmoniously for the
betterment of tho world,butas regards
man tho theory is not acceptable to
man. It means selfishness and greed
and tho rulo of might makes right.
So tho text Is intorprotcd not to ro
for to Man's physical lifo but to his
spiritual life. Certainly Man is not
expected to go against all his natural
Instincts and dollboratoly seek doath
for the body. The selfish man is
shunned and disliked universally and
tho unselfish man is admired.
Tho grain of corn remaining alon
and preserving itself nover accom
plishes anything. If it is destroyed
In the earth it brings forth many
grains; if consumed by man it creates
brain and rausclo and good works.
Tho grain must dlo to accomplish
With humanity It Is tho same way.
Unslfishncss, kindliness and helpful
ness of others nro necessary for tho
accomplishment of reiil good In the
world. And tho strugglo, tho nover
ending contest, aro beneficial and help
mako men strong. Better tho lifo of
Sisyphus, doomed forover to roll a
hugo boulder up a high hill, only to
seo it roll again to tho bottom, than
no struggle at all. What If all Natures
wearied of tho 6trugglo and gave up?
How barren tho world and our lives
would bo without tho Honors, tho
fruits, tho numberless creatures which
.strugglo for bxlstcnco on tho earth.
Would It bo woll for Man to exempt
him from this strugglo of tho survival
of tho fittest?
of man. Tho bee stores honoy for un
born bees; tho colllo dog risks and
loses his lifo to preserve that of
others. Throughoutjtho animal king
dom tho unsolilshness of tho maternal
nstlnct is universal. This is always
admirod and thero is a demand by
humanity that men mako sacrifices for
tho good of civilization. Llko Plato's
Republic, where every man was busy,
Joing tho things for tho good of tho
Republic for which ho was best suited,
so should tho world be. Tho strugglo
of life Is beneficial, yet !ho who seeks
solely to presorvo himself loses tho
bettor life. Tho martyrs of old who
igavo up thoir lives freoly, yet llvo to
day more fully than did tho strong
imon who sought to presorvo but them
selves. Ho who seeks to savo his life shall
loso it; and ho who seeks to loso his
lifo shall proservo it.
Tho address required about thirty
jnlnutcs, nftor which tho girls' doublo
trio pleased tho audlenco with a pretty
selection. Tho singers woro: Edith
Suchor and BIrdio Hoch, sopranos,
Carrio Clayton and Elsie Popper, sec
ond sopranos, and Graco Morrison
and Allco Oillam, altos.
Mr. E. C. Remsberg ob president of
the board of education made a short
speech bofore distributing the diplo
mas. Ho said that of tho infant class
of ninety-four members who enrolled
1n tho schoolB oloven years ago, just
one remained In tho graduating class
Roy Sleeper. Tho graduating class
was just ono-third tho slue of tho be
ginning class. Ho then distributed

Tho Hygiene of Old Ago
Wo look upon the aged with good
reason as having a slender hold upon
life, ono that may bo loosened by a
slight shock of Injury or dlseaso
which, In tho young or Imlddlo-nged,
would serve only as a stimulus to tho
reparative vital powers. This is a.
conservative bollof, but it warns us to
shiold our loved ones, who havo
fought tha. fight, from all lnlluonces
which might shorten thoir stay with
us. But we must not go too far in our
solitude, for Injury may bo inflicted
and lifo shortened by coddling tho
young. Tho vital processes in tho
aged aro slow, but thoy aro still exist
ent, and thoy may bo kopt active by
gcntlo opposition and stimulation,
just as thoy may bo Increasod In child
hood and youth by rough mothods.
