ADDRESS TO SENIORS SUN
DAY EVENING.
Pointed Out Life9 8
Needs to Seniors
Sunday evening at the Presbyterian
Chinch President 11. M. Crooks of
Alma College gave the annual bacca
laureate address to the senior class,
the subject of the address being "The
Individual in a More Socialized
World."
In opening his address he pointed
out that the American people are in
clined to pity as insufficient creatures
the people of Russia, Cermany, China
and even of Prance, Italy and Great
Britian, and that we do not admit our
own weakness, and that we gloss
over our failures, and then pictured
us as fatuous optimists.
In part he said, "Recently the Irish
in America asked us all to accept
their colored versions of the need of
their confused home land. The Ku
Klux Klan asks us to ldieve a mass
of distorted truth and a world of
fiction. A great financial genius
asks us to accept his seemingly pre
judiced views concerning an age old
people. This people (with the help
of a possibly subsidized sect) asks us
to accept their special interpretation
of their rights as God's chosen people.
A well organized group desires us to
believe that America is a failure in
its government and civilization and
attacks us with weekly journals and
novels about city and small town
books, seemingly with scholarly zeal
for truth but actually tracts with
their own purpose.
"For a little while it ought to be
a matter of pride to be a college man.
1 hope you are proud of your own col
lege. Hut you shall have failed if it
is long our chief title to distinction.
Your first position may come because
you are a college graduate: your sec
ond., and each one thereafter, ought to
tome because you are capable. Your
college never hoped nor tried to finish
you, only to start you. Education
aims to make you a man: never was
it worth while only to make you a
college man.
"To avoid such danger you must
recognize all sorts and conditions of
nn, not with superiority, but with
fraternal spirit. In civic affairs
you must find a place. In education
al movements in England it has
been said that the most serious work
is now being done in special move
ments and class of labor unions.
University clubs in America are social
only: women's clubs even in the vil
lages, are literary, civic, and philan
thropic. You will find in your future
experience newspaper men trained
only in newspaper offices who can
teach you how to write. Amateur

Northern Wheel Company that the
damage suit between The Republic
Motor Truck Company Inc., and the

understanding is existing between
the well known Alma corporations.
The settlement of the suit was

SUIT WITHDRAWN
Post Office Shows
Increase Over 1921
The increase in the business being
done by the Alma post office over
last year is a large one, on figures
for the first five months of the pre
sent year, furnished by E. L. Smith,
acting postmaster.
Each month of the five shows an
increase over the same month of last
ear, although the increase recorded
in February over the month of Febru
ary of 1121 was a very small one,
amounting to only $25.71). The
largest increase of any single month
of the five over the same month a
year ago was May. May 11)22 shows
a total business at the post office of
$l,2t;.'.01, as against a total of
$2,9!tf.:Jl in May 11)22, a gain of
$1,P4.77 over last year.
The increase for the five months
over the first five months of last
year is $:i,r87.2:5.
Ijast year the amount of business
done was sufficient to place the Alma
office in the list of first class offices
in the list o first class offices, and
and with the increase over last year
there is every prospect that the Aimi
office will continue as a first cl-
jifice for the folh.ving year.
If the amount of the business be
ing done at the post office is any
riterion of conditions in this city.
the business improvement in Alma
over the first five months of last
year is considerable, and it is very
probable that the business improve
ment is reflected in the amount of
business done at the post office to
some slight extent at least.
RIVERDALE HAD A
Fl
FOUR IllJSINESS PLACES IN
WEST GRATIOT VILLAGE ARE
WIPED OUT BY FLAMES.
RIverdale was visited Sunday by
the most disasterous fire in the his
tory of that community, which with
the flames being fanned by a high
wind for a time threatened the en
tire town, and it was not until the
aid of the fire departments of Shep-
lerd, St. iouis and Alma had been
called to the scene that the flames
were finally brought under control,
and gradually subdued. Before the
fire was extinguished four business
places had been destroyed by the
flames.
The fire was discovered shortly be
fore noon, and with a heavy wind
blowing the flames spread so rapidly
that the hastily formed bucket brig
ade found itself powerless to subdue
the stubborn fire, sparks from which
were carried on the wings of the
wind to other structures about the
town, keeping nearly all of the in
habitants busy watching the roofs
of their homes, on which pails, tubs,
and other water holders were placed,
to dump water on any sparks which
might find a resting place thereon.
Time and again sparks started small
fires on various roofs, which were
juickly put out by this means.
Aid was summoned to Hiverdale
from the St. Ixuis, Alma and Shep
herd departments, which responded
.vith hose and hand chemicals. Fine
jse was maue oi tne cnemicais in
saving adjoining structures. The
hoso taken by the three departments
was stretched to the river and ef
forts made to throw water on the
flames in this way.
The buildings which were burning
when the aid arrived were so far
ijonc that nothing could be done to
jave them, and all attention was
.entered on saving other structures.
It is thought that the fire started
in the Ilauck hardware, but this is
not known for a certainty, and
neither is it known just exactly how
the fire started, but it is believed
to have been started from a kersene
stove. The flames (juickly spread
over the J. W. Johnson dance hall
and skating rink, the Forquer pool
room, the Johnson movie house, and
the Ilauck hardware, all of which
were totally destroyed by the flames.
Volunteer aid helped in saving some
of the goods in the various buildings,
but the greater part of the fixtures
in the four places was destroyed.
It is believed that the loss from the
fire will exceed $15,000 Mr. Johnson
alone estimated his loss at over
$0,000, with no insurance. The
Ilauck hardware carried considerable
insurance. The Johnson buildings,
which housed the dance hall, skating
rink, and also the movie, will not be
re-built Mr. Johnson stated Sunday
afternoon.
HANK CLEARINGS
The bank clearings for the current
week are $100,075.75, a good increase
over last week, but slightly less than
they were a year ago for the current
week, according to figures furnished
by the First State Bank. Last week
the clearings were $80,501.29. A year
ago this week they were $108,451.01).
K. h. Smith and Rev. M. W. Duffey
were in Ithaca on business Tuesday.

Whitcraft Fined
In Assault Case
Frank Whitcraft, a farmer living
near this city was arrested last Sac
uvtiay morning, and brought int)
justice court before Joseph L. Bigger
staff, charged with assault, it being
alleged that on the previous Thursday
evening he beat up Willie C. Stitt, a
neighboring farmer, who is nearly 70
years of age.
It is said that a cow belonging to
Whitcraft had been bothering Stitt
considerably ami in the evening in
question, the cow again got on the
Stitt place and was run into the barn
yard with the Stitt cows, after which
whUe afc the ' w,fe
saw Whitcraft at the barnyard, and
Stitt then went out, and in an argu
ment that arose, it is said that Whit
craft attacked the old man, blacking
both of his eyes and otherwise injur
ing him.
When Whitcraft appeared before
Justice Bigerstaff he entered a pica
of guilty and the case was then con
tinued over until Monday, June 12, at
which time Justice Biggerstaff gave
Whitcraft the option of a $35.00 fine
with costs or to spend CO days in
jail. Whitcraft immediately paid.
Presbyterians Start
A Bible School Here
One week from next Monday a Va
cation Bible School will be started in
the Presbyterian church to run for
five days a week over a period of
five weeks. The school will convene
at 0:00 a. m. and run until 11:45 a. m.
During that time pupils enrolling
will be taught the Bible by paid in
structors in just as thorough a man
ner as any subject in the public
schools is taught. Classes for all ages
will be arranged.
Similar schools to this have been
started in recent years in many cities
and have proven to be an invaluable
means of giving the boys and girls
a careful instruction in that theme
more important than any other and
yet more ignored today than any
The Way of Life.
Although this school will be- organ
ized and ftnance'd by the Presbyterian
church no denominational teaching
will be given and pupils from any or
all other Sunday schools are invited
to enroll if they desire to do so.
More as to the curriculum, rewards
for scholarship, etc., will be available
for next week.

day by N. A.'Borgen, campaign man
ager for the Salvation Army that the

over-subscribed by several dollars, a
total of $1,502 being secured in the
drive which ended with the tag day
Saturday.
St. Louis and other portions of the
county are now being organized and
every effort is being made to get the
balance of county up so that the
county quota of $3,950 will be
reached. Saturday afternoon and
evening American Legion members at
St. Louis, headed by the St. Louis
band, will parade the streets with a
fifty foot flag and with six Salvation
Army lassies with tambourines, will

FORMAL EXERCISES TUESDAY
MARKED START OF WORK
ON NEW STRUCTURE.
At 5:30 o'clock Tuesday afternoon
the formal exercises ' in connection
with the breaking of ground for the
new $100,000 memorial gymnasium
at Alma College was' held in the
presence of a large number of stu
dents and friends of the college, the
exercises being in charge of Resi
dent II. M. Crooks.
Dr. J. T. Ewing, registrar of the
ColIegV, was the first speaker. He
told of the starting of the college in
1880 and the construction of the
administration building and a girl's
dormitory in that year, which were
opened for the first time, October
20, 1880. - In 1887 the heating plant
was constructed, and was followed in
1889 by the laying of the corner
stone of the library building, which
was completed n the following
spring. The starting, of the combin
ed museum and gymnasium, in 1894
was spoken of, which was completed
in 1895. He then spoke of the con
struction of the memorial to Mr.
Hood, Hood museum in 1897, and in
1902 of the construction of Wright
hall, the gift of Ammi W. Wright.
From that time on no buildings were
addexl by the college up to the pre
sent, he said, but spoke of the worthy
effort of Zeta Sigma last fall to es
tablish a home. He also told of
the building of the athletic field in
1902 and the addition of the Davis
gate in 1912. The new gymnasium
he said, was the first unit of the
greater Alma College which was be
ing hoped for. In closing he said
that Alma College had never felt a
need for a building, but what the
need was soon supplied.
Professor Roy Hamilton, acting
dean, told how the money was raised
for the memorial gymnasium. He
told of the campaign among the col
lege students and faculty, who had
taken for themselves a quota of
$10,000, and how. the students and
faculty had made a world record in
pledging 100 per cent strong towards
the gymnasium, giving pledges that
totalled $14,175. He then spoke of
the campaign in Alma and in the
county, which added to the sum that
the faculty and students had pledged
until $88,000 was in the coffers for
the new building, which would be the
embodiment of the hopes of the col
lege and a memorial to the service
men of the county.
Dr. Barkley, of Detroit, chairman
of the board of trustees, was then
called upon by President Crooks to
turn the first shovela.I of ground for
the gymnasium. In tunrng the
Stomal he ;id that he b'ulJing
would memorialize the work, and
w uid give assurance and hjpe for
the future. Then Mayor Cha:'e? R.
Murphy for the c'; was calVJ upon
to turn a shove'.fil of dirt, nnd he
vas followed by President H. S.
Bibcock of the Alma Chamber of
Commerce, which aided greatly in
the campaign here i. ;ear ago whe'i
funds were sought. Jotham Allen,
chidrman of the drive campaign com-
mittre, turned a she. el fullof dirt,
nnd was followed by Coach Caivipbel1,
Keger Zinn, prevent of the stiden'.
ciuncil, and M a thztbeth M tiger
for the girls.
Then the trjdees lined up at th
suggestion of Preiidcnt Crooks, with
the women members at the head, and
each. in turn pu their foot to the
shovel, and lifted out a shovel load
ed with dirt. Mrs. William A. Bah-
Ike of this city was the first, and she
was followed by Mrs. John Dodge, of
Detroit, the two women members
who were present. L. A. Sharp
was third and he was followed in or
der by John W. S. Pierson of Stan
ton, Clarence B. Chatfield of Bay
City, Charles II. Bonbright of Flint,
Dr. Lewis S. Brooke of Milford, and
Professor Kendall Brooks . of Mt.
Pleasant. Mr. Seeley of Caro, a
former trustee, who.wai present, was
then called upon to conclude the for
malities by turning still another
shovelful of dirt.
GROUND BROKEN
0 IB
PAVING M
ON 1 DDI T
HAS STARTED
HOLMES, CRANE & BARTLING
STARTED EXCAVATING FOR
PAVING LAST WEEK.
Work Will Last
For Some Weeks
The paving on North Woodworth
avenue has been put underway by the
firm of Holmes, Crane & Bartling,
which was recently awarded the con
tract by the city for the work on this
street, on West End street and or.
West Downie street,
A large force of workmen started
the work of excavating at the north
end of the street, at the intersection
of East End street the latter part of
last week, and is working south,
towards Superior street. With the
force of men at work the firm is
making rapid progress with the ex
cavating, the entire north block be
ing plowed-up and a considerable
amount of the dirt already removed.
It will take some time to complete
the work on this street, which has
several blocks to be paved as the en
tire street must be excavate.', and
curb and gutters constructed before
the paving can be laid. As soon as
a suitable amount of the excavating
work is completed, however, another
force will be starte'd at the north
end of the street, putting in the curb
and gutter, end then just as raoid'y
ns possible the paving will be laid.
Thus it is probable that before all the
excavating is done, that work of lay
ing the curb and gutter will not only
be under way, but the actual work
ct laying the paving will r.lso be
started.
As soon as the workmen finish the
work on this street the work will be
started on Downie and on West End
streets. Downie street is to be pav
ed west from State street to Park
avenue, a distance of two blocks and
West End suet will also have ab-ut
the same amount of paving, as it will
also be laid west from State street,
for two blocks.
Harry Opens New
Grocery in Alma
A new grocery has ben opened in
the Fraker block on East Superior
street, which will be the first of
Alma's grocery stores to adopt the
serve-self idea for its customers,
which has been gaining a rapid
headway in the larger cities of the
country during the immediate past
few years.
The new store will be under the
ownership of Carl Harry, who for the
greater part of the time during tha
past several years, has been connect
ed with Alma groceries, and who is
well versed in the business.
The store in the Fraker block in
which the new place is located, has
been completely redecorated, and new
furnishings and shelving placed
throughout the entire store. In
keeping with the new , furnishings
and fixtures is an entire new line
of groceries, all of which combine to
give the place a neat and attractive
appearance.

tion from old Alma students and
other friends of the college over his
wonderful performance at Albion in

NEW TRICKS HERE
During the past few days Thomp
son's garage, local agents for Re
public Trucks, have delivered Repub
lics to two live Alma business houses.
One of these delivered to the
Model Bakery Tuesday, is a special
ly designed body on a Rapid Transit
chassis, being designed to allow for
a maxium load of baked goods on a
single trip. The large body is so de
signed that three separate places are
provided for carrying bread shelving
dividing the body into three parts
and thus doing away with the neces
sity of piling the loaves one on the
other. Movable cross-pieces are so
arranged that they may be easily
moved as the bread is taken from
the shelves, thus keeping the loaves
that are left from bouncing around,
and jamming. A number of small
compartments are also provided in
front for carrying pies, cookies, etc.
The entire body is finished in a
cream color, with black trimmings,
with each side of the body carrying
the usual Model Bakery inscription.
The other truck delivered the first
of the week was a Model B 1!, 2'';
ton job for The Home Lumber &.
Fuel Company to be used in the de
livery of lumber.
SEEKING THE WRITER
Authorities are seeking to locate
the writer of a number eif "poison
pen" letters in St. Louis, which have
been sent to various teachers of the
public schools there nnd to a few of
the well known residents ef that city.
All of the letters evidently have to
deal with school affairs.
Residents of St. Louis are now ele
maneling that the affairs in connec
tion with the schools there be probe'd,
and at a meeting Monday evening a
petition was made up which was sent
to Thomas E. Johnson, state superin
tendent of public instruction, asking
that the department investigate af
fairs there.
Attorney Coffee, representing the
elepartment, is expecteel to be in St.
Louis toelay to start an investigation
in behalf of the Department of Pub
lic Instruction.

the subjYct of his address, "Tin Fine;
Art ef Living."
In epening his address he- pointed
out that thought is the actualization
of ideals ace or (linf; to great princi

look to action, and that e-very thought
tends to action if all edher thoughts
are excluded. In this way he said
some1 of the most important decisions
e.f our lives are reached, almost sub
e emseiously.
He the-n pointe-d out that that which
is worth while-, is to be what erne
eught to be, to make minel and betely

quires will in action, while' elrifting
not only umlei mine's the charac ter,
but makes for less happiness, and

Self contred is a prime e-onditiem for

The normal moeul in alsej a need he
said, pointing out that erne eloes bert

In closing his aeldress he' pointed
