WILLIAM A.SUMMERILL, Editor PRINCIPLES, PROVIDENCE. PERSONS Established 1878 VOL. 43, NO. 24 PENNS QROVR, N. J., FRIDAY, JUNE 17 1921 SINGLE COPIES, 5 CENTS Commencement The Largest Ever Hij>h School Graduates Showed What They I-earncd To a Large Audience The Tabernacle was filled last Tues day evening with a thousand children and parents w'ho greatly appreciated the graduating exercises ol me Penns Grove High School and the fascinating play drill of the Grammar School pupils. The building was tastefully decor ated with flags and the crepe of pur ple and gold, the class colors. Over the stage was1 the class motto, “Push, Pluck, Perseverance.” The program published last week was carried out with out a break or a halt. The salutatory and valedictory ad dresses are of superior merit, because of their practibility, concise and terse compositions. They appear on page 3. The demonstration in stenography by the five graduates in the commer cial course gave the large congrega tion a view of how’ short hand is writ ten, which few had ever seen before. Four wrote on a black board while others wrote oni paper from dictation, then read what they wrote. The first aid demonstration by Edith P. Sparks and Orrin Viele show ed the practical health instructions now taught in our schools. The dem onstration was how a broken arm and a broken jaw should be bandaged. Miss Sparks spoke exceptionally clear and distinct of the operation while Mr. Viele wrapped the bandages. This was only an example of many others taught. The amusing part of the program was the prophecy and presentation of unique mementos by Esther H. White, the speaker, assisted by Ralph I). Justice. Julia Thompson was to become a poet. Katie Keen was to become a Demo cratic candidate for Congress on a platform to enforce prohibition. Clara Jones was to become a school teacher. Sara Britton was to become an edi toress.

Carl H. B. Summerill was to become an artist. Thelma Wood was to become an organist. Verna Fogg becomes a famous singer. Edith White was to bear the banner of “Push, Pluck, Perserverance.” The physical exercise at play drill was perfect and pretty7. It was the same which won the County prize. County Superintendent of Schools presented the diplomas to the fifteen High School graduates and the fifty three Grammar School graduates. The exercises and demonstrations were creditable exhibitions of the school work, creditable not only to the scholars but also the efficiency of the teachers who have given super-service.

The field day was held on du Pont Dye Works Athletic Field, on East Maple Avenue, Penns Grove. It is believed that 5,000 persons were • present! from all parts of the County. They came in trolley cars, in automo biles and auto trucks by the hundreds. Then Penns Grove and Carneys Point have over 2,000 school children. j The day was dry and hot with the temperature at 98 in the sun. Many got burned and tanned and sweat flow ed from the contestants, all of whom did nobly, but Penns Grove did the ; best. Penns Grove schools won five of the eight pennants and was tie on the sixth. As Penns Grove has no physical, in structor, the teachers have the best reasons to feel proud of the accom plishments from their instructions. Also the citizens! should feel proud of their teachers as well as the pupils winning with such zeal and energy. When one stops to think how many s times the teachers, captains and man agers had to give commands before 500 learned so perfectly, it is realized that there was work as well as pleas ure. The spirit and energy was not enough. Back of it were many days of faithful practice, of time taken from personal ease and pleasure. Field and Tract Contests 1—First, 2—Second, 3—Third.

FLAG DAY SERVICE Llks Give Splendid Patrotic Cere monial To American Flag Penn.- Grove iodgt of Eiks conduct ed a .splendid ceremonial in honor of the American flag in the Globe theatre on W ednesday night. I here was a good attendance, the theatre being well filled, and a pleas ing feature was the large attendance of boys and girls, “the hope of the Na tion upon whom great responsibilities must soon fall. Flag Day service is obligatory with every Elk lodge in the United -States and its possessions, au this weeK the beautiful ceremony was observed in nearly 1500 cities and towns through out the country. It may interest our readers to know that an Elk’s lodge is not allowed to be organized in any city or town of less than 5000 inhabitants and only one lodge of the order is allowed to be organized in any city or town. Thus there is but one lodge in the great cities of New York, Philadelphia, Chicago, and so on. Our flag was born when our Nation was an infant. The breeze that first rippled its starry folds brought whis pers of troubled events, violence and bloodshed. But our flag lives on, to see the Nation live and grow and pros per. Our flag has been carried into many battles, but never on the side of conqeust. It has known grave dan gers but has never been sullied by a national shame. Flag Day is celebrated throughout the country on June 14. In Penns Pens Grove, however, the High School Commencement was held on that even ing. so the Elks held their services on Wednesday evening so a- not to in terfere with the other important event. The exercises opened with “The Star Spangled Banner’’ by Collins and Phillips orchestra, of Philadelphia, fol lowed with introductory exercises by the Exalted Ruler and other officers of the lodge. Prayer was offered by Hollis F. Ashcraft and a brief history of the flag read by Walter Edgar. “Columbia ’ was sung by the Adelphi quartette, of Philadelphia. Esquire D. J. McCloskev and other officers en acted the beautiful altar service of the order. • Appropriate addresses were made by District Deputy Grand Exalted Ruler R. J. Gillespie, of Millville, Frank J. O'Connor and D. J. McClos key. of Penns drove. The flag was ar inspiration for all the eloquence and enthusiasm the speakers could com mand and they were heartily ap plauded. Aside from the beautiful ceremony which held the audience in close at tention. the Adelphi quartette was the big number of the evening. They are all fine vocalists, and their humorous songs, laughable stunts and by-play kept the audience clamoring for them time after time. The stage was prettily decorated with flags, the Elks colors and ferns. The setting was that of a lodge of Elks in session with Exalted Ruler Charles R. Russell presiding and the Knights and Esquire at their respec tive stations. This was the first time the Elks have observed Flag Day, and they are so well pleased with their success that they have already determined upon a much more elaborate ceremony next year. --o Penns Grove Building Loan Many do not know that Penns Grove has an active and successful building loan corporation.
