The one hundred and fiftieth annivertary of the adoption
of the Declaration of Independence will be observed by the
Sesquicentennial International Exposition, which open« at
Philadelphia, June 1, 1926.
The Start of the Revolution
The difficulties between England
and her American Colonies which led
to the Revolutionary War and the
adoption of the Declaration of Inde
pendence, the one hundred and fiftieth
anniversary of which will be observed)
next year by the Sesquicentennial In
ternational Exposition at Philadelphia,
can be traced back to 1733.
In that year the British Parliament
passed the first of a series of Acta
which so tried the patience of the col
onists that they began thinking of
separate political existence.
The first Act, passed in 1773, was
known as the Molasses Act. It placed
a tax of six pence a gallon on mo
lasses. It was followed by the Sugar
Act of 1764, placing a tax on sugar,
and a year later by the Stamp Act,
which ordered a duty on all legal docu-J
ments, phamplets, newspapers, adver
tisements and almanacs.
The Stamp Act was repealed In
1766, and in 1767 the passage of the
Townshend Act placed a tax on tea,
glass, paper and painters' materials,
This "Xct particularly incensed the
Colonies. It provided that some of

At this time Connecticut sent a
representative to England to protest
against "Taxation without Represen
tation." Virginia passed a resolution
against the Acts, and Patrick Henry
delivered his famous speech, "Give me
liberty or give me death."
The people of the Colonies suffered
under these various forms of taxation,
but boycotts against taxed articles
became wide-spread. Then, on Decem
ber 16, 1773, a party of men disguised
as Indians boarded a British vessel
in Boston harbor and emptied its car

UNIVERSITY TO BE
H. S. STUDENTS
I 5 ®,
W. A. Clark, Jr., of Butte, has
agreed to pay every year beginning
the present term the tuition, board
and room of five promising high school
graduates who attend the State Uni
versity of Montana. These scholar
ships are awarded by a committee
composed of the university faculty and
three others nominated by the presi
dent of the university and appointed
by Mr. Clark. The scholarships are
tenable for only one year and the
holder is not eligible for a second year.
The first holders of the Clark scholar
ships are Ralph Olson of Butte, Doug
las Taylor of Hamilton, Lester Jones
of Miles City, Lawrence Sweetman of
Billings, and Clarence Hagen of Stev
The scholars are chosen on the basis
of all-around activity in the high
school. Personal application is un
necessary although the committee of
awards considers all such applications.
Athletic coaches and high school prin
ciples suggest prominent and active
high school students and from the in
formation thus received the committee
makes its selection.
In addition to athletic ability the
the candidate must give promise of
being able to successfully carry uni
versity work. For this reason the
committee has refused to consider men
who graduate in the lowest third of
their high school classes.
The scholarships cover only actual
living expenses exclusive of clothes
and student supplies. The tuition of
the holders is paid directly to the uni
versity as well as the board and room
of those who live in the university res
idence halls. Holders of scholarships
living elsewhere are paid an amount
equivalent to board and room at the
