Glfford. in behalf of the Daughters of the Am erican Revolution, Miss Henrietta Wood, regent, presented to Miss Laura Tyler Buckham the prize awarded by the D. A. II.. to the student In the High School who attained the highest scholarship dur ing the year In American history and civics. Prize scholarships offered hy the Uni versity of Vermont to the boy and girl In each high school In the State who make the best scholastic records for the four yoars In high school go to Miss Bar bara Pease, for the girls, and to Maurice Virgil Kemp, for the boys. During the course of the program, .Tanke's orchestra rendered several se lections, and the high school chorus, under the direction of Miss Bcr.vl Har rington, sang two numbers, "O Promise. Me," by DeKoven, and, "Listen to tho Lambs," by R. Nathaniel Dett. Charles Wlliard Knickerbocker was the first speaker on the program, and his subject was "A Larger Navy." He ar gued that, as the navy Is the first linn of defense, It must be able to meet the fleet of any other nation In the world and conquer It, If we are to be safe. Our present navy would not he able to do this. Although our sailors have the reputation of being the best markesmen In the world, that counts for little if our guns are outranged. Tho Panama canal must be adequately protected. In order that we may quickly rush our navy from one ocean to the other In time of need. England says the seas belong to some body; America says they belong to no body; President Wilson says they belong to everybody. Whichever Interpretation we accept, wo need a powerful navy to support our Idea of the right. At present we are In second place In this resrxvt among the nations of the world, thanks to the lesson of the war, but Japan Is threatening to take second place away from us. We need to watch that wo do not go back to a pre-war basis, when wo were totally unprepared. If we are to enforce the Monroe Doctrine and keep ! tho respect of the other nations of the world, wo must have a navy second to none. It Is the duty or every American citizen to help bring this about. "The Appeal of the Child" was the sub ject of the essay given by Miss Laura Tyler Buckham. Miss Buckham told of what tho world is learning to do to-day In caring for Its children. England took the lead In this movement, and all tho other civilized nations arc following. In supplying proper food, recreation, care, of the sick, special treatment for mental degenerates, and In many other ways. tho nations of the earth, and especially America of to-day, are attempting to do more than they have ever none nciure to take rare of their children. Edward Me.lll Krebser's oration was entitled "The Young Man's Opportunity. He declared that the greatest question that any man faces Is: "How Can I Make the Most of My Life?1' Mr. Kreb- ser said that to-day, as never before, opportunities are open to the young man to make good. All that a man needs Is a purposo end the will to stick by It and he has every chance to succeed. Opportunity comes to the young man everywhere. His life Is before him. He. lias but to choose tho work for which he thinks himself bent fitted, and then go at It and work hard. Mr. Krcbser mentioned some of tho fields which are opening up to young men these days as never before. Trained men are needed everywhere, and schools are being estab lished broadcast for training men. The man with determination and patience is bound to win. Marion Frances Kidder's essay on "War Memorials" was a plea for more memorials of practical benefit to tho com munity. Muss Kidder reviewed In some detail tho part which memorials have played In the lives of the human race, and mentioned some of the great memor ials spoken of In history, some which have survived the decay of ages and aro well known to us. It Is now the duty of this generation to erect fitting racmnr lals to tho men of the present day. thce who have written Large on the pages of history In the World War. Because that was a war of Ideals, It Is all the more fitting that many memorials should bo erected to commemorate It. But the fact that some 9,000,noo--mrn laid down their lives In that war makes It Imperative that something more than mere mOnu ments of stono should be erected In their honor. Since they laid down their lives for humanity, they would want some thing in their memory which would make llfo really morn worth living for humnn Ity. Memorial rostrums and waystdo fountains are all right, but liberty build ings, whero community spirit can bo fos tered and encouraged, n,ro bolter, Tho building of good roads and pleasant homes for mankind also arc fitting memorials to the men who laid down their lives for mankind, In closing, Miss Kidder spoke of the movement uhlch has been '(tarted at the college for a memorial building In memory of the men from that Institution Who ffLU tholr live In th World Wax. She urxd that this move - ment be supported hy everybody In Bur lington as a worthy aim for this com munity. "ArcntintanT a Now Field," was the subject of the oration by Edward Pro vost. Mr. Provost said that accounting Is Inseparably related to economics and law, and that It Is coming mnro and more to play a very Important part In world business. llxlrnvngancn due to unskilled and Incompetent management of tho business of the world Is causing all sorts of trouble these days. Waste and Ineffi ciency are everywhere, keeping up the cost of living and causing our economic standards to be founded upon a false basis. It Is time that these conditions were changed, that the cause of all this trouhle Is trared out. Men who are thor oughly trained In accounllng can do this, can find the waste and the extravagance In all this Inflated condition of arfairs, and point nut tho way to avoid It, Tho business world needs men who are able to think straight, to separate the real and thn essential from the non-essential, and lo give a definite statement of busl ness conditions. This requires thoroughly trained men, for huslness Is a complex, Intricate, scientific life these days. No rule of thumb will pass In htislncss to day. Thn colleges should pay more atten tion to the training of thorough business men-accurate, capable men whose aim In llfo Is to help keep the business of tho world going straight. Miss M. Adelaide Bombard's essay was on "Florence Nightingale." The speaker said that In this, the Contennlul year of Florence Nightingale's birth, wn siro nn coming to realize what her llfo meant to tho world. During the last five years, wo have seen her spirit move on with tho jicu i.rnss. which performed such valiant servlco on the fields or France. Miss Bombard reviewed thn early life or Flor ence Nightingale, telling how, at an early ago, this great nurse began to surround herself with Injured animals and care for them. Then she studied nursing and, when the Crimean war broke out In 1S.M .Miss .igiuingaie organized a band of 3S nurses and wont lo the front with the England army. So heavy was the work, and so few the workers, that Miss Nightingale oftened worked for 21 hours at a stretch, without either food or sleep. Beloved by tho soldiers, who grieved everywhere when she was taken ill, she recovered and staid through to the end of the war. hut went back to England an Invalid for tho rest of her life. Her work wns done, but the spirit of it was to live long after her in tho work of the Red Cross. "The Use "t Electricity Aboard Ship" wns the subject dealt with by Orem Carleton Andrews. The speaker told of tho many wonderful Inventions which have come Into use In connection with electricity on shipboard, including Illumination, the searchlight -wireless telegraphy nnd telephony, the annunciator or engine room telegraph, and the new gyroscopic compass which always points duo north and is not affected by use on steel ships, as were the old-fashioned compasses. Then there arc many other smaller appliances which have come into uso with electricity, making life more worth while on shipboard. These ap pliances save man-power nnd greatly Improve efficiency. In closing. Mr. Andrews told something about electrically driven ships. Tho closing essay was entitled "War Poetry," and was given by Miss Barbara Pease. Telling something of tho effects of the war upon tho poetry of the ago, Miss Pease choso some of the most worth while poems of the war period, most of them written by oet.x like Rupert Brook and Alan Sccgar, who were In the midst of the great war, many of them giving up their lives In tho struggle. Through these poems Miss Pease traced tendencies which expressed tho feelings of the times, feelings which were genuine because they came direct from the. hearts of the men who wrote them. Dl PIjO.MAS PRESENTED Principal John E. Colburn of Burling ton High School, spoke briefly before the presentation of tho diplomas. Ho said that the teachers, who have been tho lead ers of these boys and girls during four years of high school, now have to step back, as is tho case when each class goes forth, and ask these young peoplo to go ahead of them and take up tho leadership in tho world of affairs. It is not without a feeling of regret, said Mr. Colburn, that the teachers came to this parting, but there Is also a feeling of satisfaction In sending out those young peoplo to the community. There is, also, great inspiration in dealing always with the young, for enthusiasm lives forever in young hearts. They havo their lives before them. In closing. Mr. Colburn said, speaking to the people In tho audi ence and to Burlington as a whole: "Congratulate yourselves that these boys and girls are coming out to bo a part of the citizenry of this State." In presenting the diplomas to the grad uates, Superintendent M. D. Chittenden said, In brief: "This diploma carries with It all tho honor and the privileges that is everywhere accorded a high school graduate.

Tho pro gram of thn service was as follows! Pre lude, "Grnnd Chorus," Td. Dubois; dox nlogy; tho Apostles' Creed; Gloria Patrl; responsive reading. Psalm 122; Scrtpturo rending, Chronicles VI, 18-33: anthem, "God of Our Fathers," P. A. Schnecker; prayer, the Lord's Prnyer; offertory, "Unfold yo Portals1' (from "The Redemp tion"), Gounod; Scripture reading, Hebrews N, l!-2fi; hymn, "Glorious Things of Thee Are Spoken," John New ton; sermon, "Coronation,'' Edward Per ronet; benediction, and postlude, "Fan fare," Lcmmcns. The sermon was delivered by Rlshop Laiiress J. Blrney. D. D.. LL. D.. of Boston, who took as hlfi subject "God Is Love." It was a remarkable sermon, full of sympathy and cpmfort to thoso who are In trouble or who are sick. Thn church was crowded nt this .service. The Rev. .1. E. Mead, D. I)., superin tendent of the Plattsburgh district and p.istor of the local church from 1001 to 1004, preached the sermon at the evening service. He spoke a few words of reminiscence, and then took ntt his sub ject "Who Knowcth But Thou Art Come to tho Kingdom for Such a Time as This?" drawing a paralell between the position of Esther In those ancient days and the. Church of God. to-day. He out-llncd-the dangers present to-day and told what the church could do to overcome those dangers. "In spite of the needs of the day," he said, "our own church has been closing an average of one church a year In the big cities and where they are needed most. R has not been doing the work It hould have done. Yet think ing men believe that the Christian church Is thn only solution In these troublous times. If the church of God roulrt only havo the program, money, passion and zeal that were present during the war It could po forth and conquer tho world. "So much for the general church. To day we are thinking of this church and of the people who have worshipped here during the last 50 years. This church has done much, but who knows but what God has brought this church to this time for Its greatest task. Its most sublime duty? This Is the zero hour. It Is no time to go deeper Into the trenches, but to go on Into no man's land to do God's work. I believe that the Christian church needs three things badly, faith, prayer and a program for the future. This church was born of audacity and It must have that abandon In carrying out Its work that forgets self. "I am Interested In this church and I often think of the many young people who attended Sunday school, when I was here. I wonder how many of them have volunteered for a life of consecrated serv ice? There are many I know, but there should be manv more. I would say to each one 'who knowcth hut thou art come to this time for a great duty to carry on the work of God?' " The service opened with the prelude "Meditation" ffrom "Thais"), Massenet, followed by a hymn, "The Church's One Foundation,' S. J. Stone. Then came the responsive reading and an anthem. "Sing Alleluia Forth," Dudley Buck; then prayer and offertory, "Eye Hath Not Seen" (from "The Holy City"), A. R. Gaul; a contralto solo by Miss Catherine Hagar. This was followed by a hymn. "Crown Him with Many Crowns." Matthew Bridges, and the ser mon. Following thn sermon came the hymn "Abide with Me," Henry F. Lyte. and then the benediction and postlude, "Anniversary March," .1. L.
