Arkansas Man Has A Mysterious Mir

Interest in the case of Lieut. James
N. Sutton, of the Marine Corps, who
was killed in a midnight fracas at the
Naval Academy, Marine Barracks, j
nearly two years ago,hast been revived !
by the declaration of J. B. Judkins, j
formerly president of the Arkansas
Sate Senate, that Sutton did not kill
hmself. but was shot in the back of J
the head while defending himself.
In a letter to Representative Old- ,
field, of Arkansas, Mr. Judkins says ,
that a former enlisted man in the
navy, whose name he communicated
to Mr. Oldfield, with the request that
it be withheld from the public at this j
time, tells a different story of the
shooting of Sutton than that which
came out at the several official in
Mr. Judkins also says this material ;
witness was hustled out of the way j
so that lie might not be called on to

j lution pending before Congress in j
regard to the death of Lieutenant Sut

“I would he pleased if our Senators
and liepresenaives from Arkansas
would support this resolution, for I
assure you that If his man’s version
of the matter is true Lieutenant Sut

an overpowering force. I am sat- 1
isfied that this man came here (Beach
Bock, Ark.) at the time he did to
I avoid being called to testify in the
matter. 1 also believe that his

Herring Orator of I he Occasion W aves Eloquent

Exercises at City High School.
Braving a storm that even ducks
would,run under cover from, friends
and relatives of the graduates and of
the city High School wended their
way last night in the worst electrical
storm, and heaviest downpour of the
season (and this is saying a great
deal) to the High School Assembly
Hall where the commencement exer
cises were held.
The hall, a handsome but not a com
modious room for such occasions, was
filled, its capacity being
taxed to the utmost, although admis
sion was by card only. It is still the
opinion of many, that the proper
place and only place to hold the High
School commencement is in the thea
tre, and it is hoped another year it
may be held there, as in other cities
and towns in the state. However, the
commencement last night was digni
fied and a credit to the school authori
ties, the teachers, graduates and to
the community.
Preceding the program, an orchestra
from the Naval Academy band, under
the leadership of Professor Schreyer,
Delivered Address To Graduates At High
School Last Night.
with Mr. Harry Schreyer piano ac
companist, played a pleasiug se
lection, and to a march, the gradu
ates came upon the stage amid loud
applause. The class is composed
of twelve girls and four boys, the
largest class ever graduated from
the city High School, and certainly
one of the best looking.
The exercises were opened with
i an invocation by the Rev. T. C. Bird,
I minister of College Avenue Baptist
! Church.
The program opened with a chorus
; “The Chase of the Butterflies.” beau
I tifully sung. The graduates were as
| sisted in singing by Mrs. \\. J. King.
; wife of Professor King, of the Nava;
I Academy, an alumnus of the city
High School and also Goucher College,
i Baltimore.
The address of “Welcome’ was de
livered by Miss Katherine McKin
sey, daughter of Mr. Folger McKin
sey. the Bentztown Bard of the Bal
timore Sun. Miss McKinsey' took
thejfirst honors of the academic di -
partment, and was the valedictorian
of the class. Her address was simple,
diignified, well-expressed and was re
cited without notes, a rare accom
plishment for a girl graduate. Miss
McKinsey never faltered or wavered
a second throughout its length, and is
to be congratulated upon her deliv
ery as well as the subject matter.
The class sang a chorus “Joys of
Spring” in excellent voice, after
which Prof. George B. Pfeiffer, who
has for two years been principal of
the school, but is about to leave,
made an address. When Professor
Pfeiffer appeared on the stage, he re
ceived an ovation. The applause
was long and loud,and he was obliged
to wait a few minutes for its cessa
tion, before he was able to begin.
And Maryland Gazette
Professor Pfeiffer said it was the
second time he had been brought be
fore the Annapolis public in this man
ner, and it gave him pleasure to tell
of the good results attained by this
class of sixteen, who were about to
graduate, who had equipped them
selves for life’s work. He spoke of
the work of the graduates in their
feur years' course at the school, and
of their commencement tor the real
work of ID’■. He said the present
cl iss had started with twe :y, but
from one c.use or another, had lost
four of its members.
Ho referred to the course mapped
out by the State Board of Education,
and of the standard bavin ; been
raised the past year. He tol lof this
class havi’ g equipped themselves ably
and of having filled all requirements,
not only of the State Board of Educa
tion, but of the National Educational
Society. He spoke of the new Co.n
mercial Department, a new branch of
the work, and gave credit to its su
perior teacher, Miss Ilimmelheber for
her splendid results. He called at-
tention to the Manual Trailing Depart
ment, and Professor Lambert’s excel
lent work in that department, and
his recognized ability everywhere
as a teacher of manual training,
citing as an evidence of his work
the exhibition in Benesch’s store
windows, and more recently at the
Exhibit at the City Assembly Rooms
held by the Holy Trinity M. E.
Church South.
He referred to the splendid work
done in the academic department with
English, the course being second to
none in the State, and in the Latin
department. He said Latin is a bug
bear to some, but it is necessary as a
good foundation for good equipment
in English.
Professor Pteiffer gave Mis Magru
der. the teacher of Mathematics,gn at
credit for her splendid work. He said
it was hard to pass examinations in
her class, but this was a high tribute
to her. He spoke of the efficiency of
M iss Dickerson, the Botany teacher,
and gave each department credit for
its work. He then addressed the High
School graduates personally. He
bade them make the best use of their
opportunties, and admonished them
always to ask God to bless them in
every undertakng, and at this the real
commencement in their lives,to go out
with the determination to succeed.ask
ing God to help and aid them in all
they do. He besought the graduates
to have a definite aim and purpose in
life; not to be prejudiced; not to be
\ narrow minded; not to mix religious
affairs and politics; to express their
(opinion modestly and fearlessy; to use
tact, judgment and to think thrice
■ before speaking once; to live up to
I their ideals and to ask God’s bless
ing to inspire them to go on, and
j go on guided and protected by Him.
In his remarks Professor Pfeiffer
reeferred to two of the boy gradu- j
ates having already secured posi- ,
tions —Mr. Stone, at Winston-Salem.
. and Mr. Holley with the Short Line
| railroad.
The graduates sat behind a hank of
beautiful flowers, pink and white car
nations, roses,sweet peas and maiden
hair fern, arranged in beautiful bou
quets ami piled high in front of the
j stage. Besides flowers, the gradu
ates received many beautiful pres
! eats. The twelve girl graduates,
beautiful girls looked handsome in
white lingerie gowns, long white kid
gloves and many of them wore white
j ribbon in their hair. The four boy
! graduates wore dark sack suits with
turnover collars and white cravats.
The following are the graduates to

Delivered Diplomas To lligti School
V y
Mayor Strange made a few appro
bate remarks in which he said it
gave him pleasure to present the di
plomas to this graduating class of
1910 of the Annapolis High School.
He knew that all had worked hard to
obtain tin* diplomas and that each had
won it deservedly. He complimented
the citizens and taxpayers of Annapo
lis upon such a fine school building
and one so well ventillated. He said
the (Ireen street school that stood on
the bit where the residence of one of
the trustees now stands, hail hut one
room and one teacher, and he as a boy
attended this school, which in no wise
compared to the handsomely equipped
school bindings the boys and girls of
today have. lie said all citizens
should feel proud of their school and
the efficient corps of teachers.
In addressing the graduates person
ally lie told them of the responsibil
ties that they could encounter in life.
Some he said may seek higher educa
tion but whatever path you choose to
enter upon he said do so with high
aspirations exalted ambitions and
noble ideals. He referred to the sad
ness of this occasion when the gradu
ates were taking leave of school days
and school friends to face the stern
realities of life. He said it was the
largest class that had ever graduated
from the Annapolis High School, and
all should be very proud of it. He
referred to the part the boy graduates
and other beys in the school had taken
in athletics, and of the victories they
had won at Tome Institute at the in
ter-scholastic field and track meet,
and with other high schools and col
leges in the past four years.
In presenting the diplomas it was
announced by the principal, Prof.
Pfeiffer, that in the Academic De
| partment Miss McKinsey took the first
honors, and Miss Ruth Feldmeyer,
; the second honors, and in the Com- j
i mercial Department Miss Helen
Childs took the first honors,and Miss
1 Naomi Duvall second honors.
Mr. William Morris Feldmeyer sang
a beautiful baritone solo entitled j
| “Song of Ilybrias the Cretan. ” It was
well rendered in Mr. Fedmeyer’s good
I voice.
Professor Pfeiffer introduced Dr. i
Joshua W. Hering “as a man whom
we all know" Dr. Hering has been
State Comptroller for many years,but
is now a member of the General
Utilities Commission,to which he was
' • recently appointed by Governor
1 ‘ Crothers.
1 Dr. liering, a grand old man of the
true Southern type,at once won favor
' with his by referring to
that ever fruitful, and moist topic—
the weather. After referring to the
most insipring occasion and the genu
! | ine pleasure it gave him to be present
1 I)r. Hering said, the presence of such
; a large gathering who had come to
s the commencement exercises through
r down pour of rain, thunder and light
> ning, showed the interest those pres
feel in the school and ki the
graduates. Dr. Hering said the
5 Weather Man was usualy thejforecaat
- er of the weather, but now he had as
j much as he could do to keep up with
the procession. The constant rain
*. (and at that time it was pouring in
torrents with peal after peal of
thunder, and sharp lightning) Dr.
{ Hering said, reminded him of the
story of the Oregon farmer who when
asked by a stranger what they prin
cipally raised out there, said "um
brellas.” That's what we’ve been
raising here for some weeks past,
said the speaker.
He congratulated the school author
ities, principal and corps of teachers
upon the result of their efforts in
graduating last night’s class, lie
said it was a splendid example of
young manhood and young woman
hood, who stood at the path of life,
looking back upon their happy school
days, and ahead upon the bright future
and roseate pathway before them. He
said the man was foolish who would
; cast a shadow over the brightness of
! this future as the young graduates
i now see it. He said it was wise
! that we really understood what
education means. There is a general
opinion that education means know
j ing a great deal; this is wrong.
Education means training. On this
; subject Dr. Hering said in part:
“We have happily gotten away from
the foolish notion that a man is to be
; considered educated simply because
ihe knows a great deal. The truly
educated man is a man who,of course,
has acquired a large fund of knowl
edge, but who has learned the higher
art of using what he does know to
the best advantage. Hence to be
educated is to be trained,and training
implies something to be trained for,
something that will enable a man to
handle himself, to do something.
“If he can’t do that, I care not
how much he may know, he is not
entitled, in this day of advanced ed
ucational thought, to be classed as an
educated man.
“This better understanding has
brought our schools to so arrange
their courses that these sensible,prac
tical ends may be accomplished.
“And this, it seems to me, ought
to be the dominant thought in the
management of our public schools.
Maryland has a splendid public school
system, and one that is, in my opin
ion, splendidly managed. The State
is, annually, spending large sums of
money upon it,and 1 wish here to say.
that 1 do not believe the State spends
any money to better purpose.
“Our schools are engaged in educat
ing the average boy and girl. The
boys who are in u|little while to take
charge of the affairs of the State, and
the girls who are in a little while to
take charge of the homes of the
State. Now to educate these chil
dren in the best and most useful
way, can any work, engaged in by the
State or the individual, be greater
than that?
“Our public schools must avoid the
mere tinsel and show of education. ;
The furbelows and the frills have no
place here. Its courses must be
solid and substantial, and must har
monize with the purpose of tin* State
in its endeavor to make good, intelli
gent citizens.”
* Dr. Hering held up character as the
great thing in life. He said to the
graduates, the brightness of your
life will be the brightness of your
character shining upon it. Every
man or woman is the creator of the
world in which he lives dark or bright,
sorrowful or glad; good or bad, it all
depends upon the focus we get on it.
Some men live in a narrow, contract
ed world, and only see themselves.
The world is full of pessimists, said
the orator; they see no flowers, no
sunshine, no brightness. Don’t be a
pessimist advised the speaker. He
said it was generally thought that
environment determines character,
that we are influenced by our sur
roundings, but it more frequently
happens that character determines en
vironment. It is not so much where
you are, as what you are. Nothing
equals character. Money may leave,

who loves Ids fellow man,” and when
the list was shown of those, who had
done good deeds “Ben Adams’’ name
