Tales on Fellow Members and Jolly with the Faculty Class Poem by Arthur Eoughton ? History by Miss Ella Deitche? large Audience Present. "The auditorium of the High fJchool ?was filled to overflowing by trhe many friends and relatives of the graduating class at their class day exercises yes terday afternoon. The room was dec orated with the class colors, vellow and black and black-eyed uusans was evidently the class favorite flower for it ocmld be seen ?everywhere. Wit twd humoT was Hhe principal feature of the exercises throughout and after a selection was -played upon the piaao, Leon Kaplan, President of the class, and wbe afterward proved to be an excellent waster of ceremon ies delivered an aSdTess. He spoke ?s follows : " In behalf of fhe class-of '03 I extewi to you all a most cordial welcome on this our class day. T/e are happy in deed 'to see you afll here today because we wish you to know what we are doing here and wfhat we intend to do in the future. ""As you are aware om lives are not one -round of happiness lor there are many obstacles te overcome. We all look forward to great deeds and ac complishments i-n life and at the same tim6 are aware of the great hardships which attend thew. While we are thitfking of these difficulties we under stand that victories obtained without them are victories of lifcCle value to onrstelves or to others. " Yet there are two ways in which to enjoy our environments, :fihe first by little or no effort and the second by peraerverance and determination to do or fail in the attempt. Oaly those who employ the latter method enjov success in the true sense of the word. For what satisfaction can one exper ience who has succeeded and that by no effort of his own. He will rejoice for a Short time but then he becomes aware of the true facta, he is in a worse position than he was before. So you see effort, energy and perser verance are the time marks of a suc cessful person. "You will ask what has that to do with you and your class? I will tell you how it is with us. We, twenty one in number, the largest class of P. A. H. S. graduates, have finished a four year coarse, some of us even in three years. Some indeed have not done their best and were satisfied to plod along with little or no effort while others, I am glad to say the majority, have endeavorel to show satisfactory results at the end of the course. And I dare say the latter have succeeded more or less. Do not think for a moment that to go through our High School course with results of whioh you need not be ashamed, is an easy matter. There are rocks to overcome, such as Greek, Geometry. Physics, Stenography and English, [ and those who teach us these so well beloved studies, too must be contend- J ed with. Considering then these J difficulties, we, with the best of aid j from our kind instructors, hav? made a mark of which we caD well boast. Oar motto, 'Viocit qui se vincit1 ,tell in a few words our minds and I am glad to say that it was never disre garded by any 'of us. "*T? conclude I would say that our class heartily thank our kimfc and benevolent instructors the worthy and honorable Board of Education, for their efforts in our behalf and all the undergraduates, who have given us an opportunity to teach them thart noise and do wofk is not the "Boad to Socoees." This was followed by an esoellent history of the class given by Kies Ella Dertche, daring which ma?y kind references iw the days gone by were made and her address to the incoming class could (not be better. She said there were "twenty-one members, the' largest cloec that has yet graduated from the ?igh School. Their totail weight wac 2,743 pounds and their average ageds eighteen. SEies Mary Conquest then gave the class statistics and this was followed by a flong by the class which was composed by A. H. Bouehton -Jr. , a member of tfra class. Mr. Boughton's class poem came next. It was sread by the poet him self. The poe.ii contained a friendly jest far every member of the class as well as those of the faculty, which created much laughter. The elass will, as read by Miss Julia O'Toole, was amusing, as she read off the various things the class be queathed to the members of the in coming class as well as the Board of Educaii ? Superintendent Shall and Mr. Z;llers the janitor. The admonition to the undergrad uates by Mies Emma Fraser was good and the class seemed to take it real seriously. The members then sang another song. Miss Lettie Tooker, one of the class prophets, told very prettily of the pleasant walks of the class, how she became lost in the woods, found a witch who handed her an envelope containing a prophecy of the fature of the class of '03. The young men in the class, however, were the only ones for whom a prophecy was made, and J. E. Growney, another class prophet, read a newspaper printed presumably in 1917, tailing with considerable amusement the various occupations of the girl members of the class. The presentation of mementoes by S. 0. Nedham, after he had presented Miss Vaughan, the class teacher, with a handsome silver loving cup, was amusing in the extreme. In short speeches fiittng'eaoh case he presented every girl[of the class with gifts, "and Miss E. A. Courts, for the .girls, got even with the boys by presenting each with a memento and a loaf of bread in the bargain. Another selection on the piano by Andrew Nelson, closed the exercises.

Boss Painter Succeeds in Get ting a Job Under Way in a State Street House. ALL .ARE DETERMINED. Tkere are threats of serious disturb ances among tbe building trades be fore night. Perdinand Wetterberg, a member of bosses association, has a ?necro at work today and all efforts on ?h? partfof the painters to have him to qnit h?ve thus far failed. The journeymen declare that if he does not stop before tonight tbey will call ?out all the mechanics. Mr. Wetterberg went to Boynton ?Beach yesterday and hired the negro And put him to work painting the in terior of a new house en State street. The waiting delegate of the painter's 'unisn had a conversation with the fellow and thought he had him fixed, but this morning the negio started to work again. All efforts to see the fellow today have failed. A delega tion, it is said, will meet him when he quite tonight. If the negro does not quit, there will probably be a meeting of the delegates of all the trades tooight to decide what action they will take. A ' letter from the amalgamated painters ;&as been received *by the local union in which the New Tork men say they will not work here while the strike is gb. Mr. Wetterberg is very determined in the matter. He has several con tracts to get out and if the other painters don't want to work under seasonable terms, he h is oce who will and he is going to keep him at work. It is believed by some of the bosses that this is the opening wedge for breaking the strike. [RECEIVER'S SUIT IS_CONTINUED Hearing in Newark Yesterday? Will Come up Again on June 29 at Same P.'ac?.

A Few of the Prominent Merchants who Give Trading Stamps Throughout the U- S For the beuefit of the uninformed, aud in denial of the assertions that merchants handling Trading Stamps lower the stan dard of their business in the eyes of the inteligent buying public, aud ra'siug pri- j ces on all merchandise sold by them, we insert just a few of the prominent mer chants throughout the U. 8. who are giv ing Trading Scamps with all cash pur chases. By a perusal of this list, you wil find names of busiuess houses, who^e busi ness is the largest iu their line, the quali ty of their goods the best while the prices are the lowest, which shows that mer chants handling Trading Stamps do not increase their prices to do so.

The game was a very pretty contest in which the visitors distinguished themselves by some fast fielding. Their playing so impressed the fans that they were anxious to see them return as soon as possible and the second game was booked with them in deference to the wishes of the rooters. The Kid de clares that his team will be even better iiban before and that he thinks the game is already Tjron.

While "Gns" was hit hard last Sat>-j^y with an even break of luck would have indicated a much c1Sb<& ^ame. There has been fear expressed by some of the fans, however, that Rochelle would not be able to hold his own against the West New Yorks and on that account an extra pitcher will be here to save the followers of the team from needless anxiety. The Marions two new in fielders, who showed up well in last week's game, will also be here to cover short an third and as they will make the locals stronger than on the occasion of the previous visit of Car sey's team a victory for the Marions may be expected.
