A shoe is only as good as its worst part We are proving to a good many people, by the use of the famous Regal Buzz-Saw in our window, that the hidden parts of Regals parts which are very often the worst and weakest in other shoes are honestly built for long wear and shape-retention. Some cf the weak spots of shoe s which are merely good-looking weak spots which can not easily be detected before purchase are poor inner soles, which no consumer investi gates; poor outer soles, which are concealed beneath paint and varnish; poor lasting, which does not take the stretch out of leather; poor stitching, which cuts partially through both welt and insole. Such shoes are made to sell, not to wear. The Regal " Window of the Sole" proves before you buy that the particular Regal shoe that you are trying on is built with genuine live Oak-Bark-tanned soles. The Regal Buzz-Saw opens up the whole shoe and shows you the make-up of every part.

At each corner was a mass of olean der blossoms and branches and around the balcony and over- the boxes were strung pepper boughs. The class seat ed in a semicircle. Prof. Blount, Gov ernor Kibbey and Dr. Coats occupied the stage. The junior class was as sembled In the balcony. The faculty of the high school occupied the boxes on the right on the lower floor, and members of the other classes were placed in other sections specially re served for them. The orchestra rendered two selec tions Introductory to the program. The audience which greeted with applause the assembled class upon the raising of the curtain, filled the opera house to its capacity, almost every seat be ing taken. The invocation was pro nounced by Dr. Orville Coats of the First Baptist church. V The salutatory was delivered by Miss Helene Taylor in a very earnest and Impressive manner. The speaker extended the parents and friends of the class of 1908 a hearty greeting. "This is the occasion toward which we have been striving during four long yet seem ingly short years Now we are ready to enter upon some higher course of study or take up oth er lines of work. We realize that as yet our preparation for active work has not been completed. Speaking to the theme of "Songs of Different Nations," she said: "Songs exert a great Influ ence on the development of nations. They arouse the spirit of a country to action. They move the people where the mightiest of orators have failed Songs have not always been written by great authors, often they are the result of a deeply lying emotion of some obscure person. National songs reflect the nature of the nation." The speaker quoted a few songs illustra tive of the point. She referred to the songs of a number of nations as char acteristic of that nation. She spoke of American songs and the conditions and times which inspired them. In closing she said, "America has no true national hymn. Her ideas are not es tablished her population consists 'of people from foreign lands who have brought with them their folksongs and their ballads." A vocal solo, Onaway! Awake Be loved .Hiawatha's "Wedding Feast) was pleasantly sung by Mr. Thomas Francis Hughes. The accompaniment was played by Miss Grace Abbie An drews. "Master of the Situation" was the subject ,of an excellent oration by W. Walter Gentry. "The destinies of mankind have been determined by their channels. We al low a difficulty to turn us aside from our purpose or we put forth all our mental and physical strength and master the situation. Every one should have an ambition to accomplish some thing above the common level. The channel through which Marcus Brutus sailed was that of statesmanship. Aaron Burr was a man of marked ability. His early life was devoted to mastering difficulties. But there was one difficulty which he did not master, that was anger and envy, which con quered and enslaved him. Burr took a short channel then to success but failed and died a despised and miser able man." He related the life his tory of a number of other men notable In the past pointing out the particular channels in which their lives had run. In closing he said, "Seek not the highest places, but fit yourself for them, so that if they are given to you you may fill them acceptably." Miss Margaret Howard took for her theme "Watchman, What of Morn ingr "Since the day when God spoke and saw that it was good, man has sought for more light. We are like a ship wrecked mariner who clings to a sin gle spar and strains his eyes for the first ray of dawn." The speaker referred to the great Inventions which have brought light and lessened labor, made and aided in humanity's upward progress. She dwelled on the benefits of electricity, wireless telegraphy and telephony, re cent achievements. "Traveling is an other question of the day. Bad roads have always been a source of trouble and good ones hard to make. The Grecians labored for years in building highways in Asia Minor and bridges across the Hellespont." She predicted that airships would 'reach a state of perfection where travel from Los An geles to Phoenix might be the matter of but a few hours. "China's awaken ing is a sign of the breaking dawn and Christian civilization is lifting de pressed humanity toward success. The struggle to free the country from the monster alcohol is a gracious sign. The patient watchman on the wall has labored through nights of darkness. He sees the morning breaking. Be hold the night will pass and find us on Times side of Eternity." Mr. Carl E. Doud inspired admira tion by his rendition of 9th Concerto Op. 104 A Minor, a very difficult com position for the violin. Miss Alice Redewill presided at the piano. Miss Genelle Verde McCrea spoke on "The Child Problems in Our Great Cities," and her delivery was most excellent. She said that: The child as a wage earner has be come a most serious problem within the last thirty years. This is sejen in its worst forms in the factories, stores and tenement houses. The foundation of the child's life is the home, but can. we call their tenement habitations homes. Home has no meaning to them. The slums can be done away with but the child as a laborer is a more complicated problem. There are today over two million ' children toiling in this country. They toll from early morning till late at night, they are lit tle educated, their food is inadequate and their clothing insufficient. Their innocence is destroyed and they be come old before their time. The tragedy of the problem is that the children are attracted by the work and their idea of earning money but are they not entitled to live .their youth happily?" The speaker referred to some solutions of this national evil which nothing but wise legislation can cure. G. Fred Spaulding .showed consider able forensic ability in his oration, the subject of which was "The New Patriotism." In brief the speaker said : "Partiotism Is the strongest tie that holds a nation together. It has been this factor more than mere skill and success In arms that has won for us this glorious country. Martial times demand a martial spirit, a spirit that can look at death calmly and never flinch. But with changing conditions comes a change In patriotism. Affairs are however fast approaching a crisis. No longer is self Interest applauded or rewarded and he who has one mode public life Is receiving to day the verdict of an aveng ing justice." The speaker refer red to affairs in the various cities and to various men in public life who are setting the worthy example and demanding higher standards in the public service. "Then with such men as these as our leaders and with our eyes fixed firmly on the goal let us march for ward and proclaim the new conception that patriotism Is service." Miss Alice Redewill gave a very praiseworthy rendition of Valse Im prompto by Liszt, a. piano number. Lloyd C. Elliot was the last represent ative of the graduating class on the program and his,theme was "The Im migrants" which he handled thought- i fully. He said that: In an enumeration of the evils that endanger our country, immigration must stand at the head of the list. The foreigners are coming to our country at the rate of a million a year. Each day brings every con ceiveable kind of humanity. Each We exercise more care in the selection of choice Coffees, than any other house in the world. mm Folger's Golden Gate has the flavor appreciated by knowing coffee drinkers. Grind it at home Not too fine. J. A. Foltfer Sk Co., San Francisco day adds its quota to the endless procession. Of this mighty tide, pov erty, illiteracy and disability claim liberal proportions. Within the last changing of the seasons a sufficient mass of illiterates entered the Unit ed States to more than populate Alaska, Nevada, Wyoming, Utah and our own Arizona. But let us look at another side. In the lowest of the human kind there is a spark of good which may be fanned into a flame." The speaker then described the home and life of the Polish peasant, his Journey to this land and what awaits him here, his efforts to find work, his home in a tenement, and the conditions which he faces which in the end contribute the making him what he in a large number of cases becomes, an "undesirable citizen." "This is a problem the solution of which at present seems an almost impossible task." The closing of his address was devoted to a valedictory and in a few well chosen words spoke of the associations the class was leaving behind, and the voyage ahead. Professor George Blount made a short address and presented the grad uating class which he was proud to say was the largest in the history of the school and he asked for them of the people the most considerate treatment during life's voyage. He re ferred to the fact that the first grad uating class consisted of but two members and only a few were eligible to the high school in Phoenix the first year, during 1907-08 there were 277 students. A large per cent of the graduates had already signified their Intentions of pursuing a higher course in college. He then introduced Gov ernor Kibbey who spoke of the re sponsibilities which faced the gradu ates in their future and admonished them to hold to lofty Ideals of citizen ship. After the diplomas were pre sented by the governor, the program was completed by the singing of the class song by the graduating class. The representatives of the class ac quitted themselves with great credit and it was a memorable and happy oc casion marking the end of a very successful year for the school.
