" Tisdale & Jackson Deering Building UNION CITY SCHOOLS , COMMENCEMENT WEEK The School Year Closes With Inter- , , esting Exercises. , , Exercises accompanying the cloae of the 1914-15 term of the Union City Schools began last week with the junior reception at the home of Miss Marjorie Adams. On Saturday the annual exhibit was inspected by the patrons and friends of the school. This was Wy extensive with many new and valuable features On Sunday night the baccalaureate sermon was delivered at the First Chris tian Church by Rev. W. W. Armstrong. On the stage were seated with the min ister Revs. Roger L. Clark, H. H. Drake and Wm. Thorne. The junior and senior classes were seated in the front pews The music for the occasion was special with several good voices and selections, Rev. Drake read a lesson from the Bible and Rev. Thorne invoked a Divine blessing on the class and the service, Rev. Armstrong spoke fronfthe book of Esther, illustrating the personal sac rifice of the queen to save her kinsman, Mordecai, and the Jewish people from the treachery of Haman. Esther lial succeeded the banished queen Vasbti to the throne and Haman had thru the favor of the king become one of his chief princes. Mordecai refused to acknowledge the authority of Haman, and Hainan's displeasure was shown by seeking to destroy Mordecai and his brethren and .causing a scaffold to be built for Mordecai. Mordecai, clad in sackcloth and ashes, ap pealed to the queen, saying that his people were in danger of being de stroyed and the queen with them. He plead with the queen to appear before the king for her people. The law for bade the presence of anyone i4ot invited to appear at the inner court before the king, and unless the king held forth the golden sceptre death was the penalty. Therefore the queen, appearing before the king, offered herself as a personal sacrifice for her people. The king ex tended to the queen the golden sceptre, and the queen's request was granted and Haman went to the scaffold in the place of Mordecai. Thus Queen Esther, who bad been favored above all those of her sex, rec ognized the voice of justice and the call of duty above the glamor and the glare of court and even at the risk of life itself. The lesson of Queen Esther was ap plied to the responsibilities of the pres ent. Every young lady in the class is as beautiful and good as a queen and every young man as manly as a king. But there are two roads jn life. One leads upward to those things which form the virtues and character of noble men and women. The other takes a down ward course thru fashion and' folly, de ceit and dishonor. One honors God, the other forms an alliance with Satan. The highest objects of womanhood and motherhood are not to be attained thru the 500 club, neither will the 500 club strengthen the morals nor enrich the mind. The minister severely con demned the customs of the card clubs and the accompanying tendencies. Now is the time, the turning point in life, when the right or the wrong step may be taken. A beautiful temple may be disfigured with sin, a homely face and an honest heart may shine with beauty. The minister reached out with his discourse to the affairs of public life. He spoke of the European conflict and the ungodly alliances and inhuman practices of war. His heart revolted with the idea that -God is with any of the nations in this monstrous horror. His Bible did not teach him of the re conciliation of human, warfare and Christianity. The preacher waxed warm when he invoked the displeasure of God upon the armament of nations and trusted with all his heart that the United States would never construct another battleship. Men and women can never attain the highest ideals of .citizenship and the noblest purposes of life while nations' are engaged in a bloody war, seeking one to overthrow the other, and to rise from the ruins and ashes, the scarred remains, the bleeding hearts, the unholy birthright, to might and do minion over the earth and the sea. There is no such plan as this in the Holy Scriptures, and the young men and young women to-day should be taught that God holds them responsible 1 for the crimes that are committed "in the name of High Heaven. ; T At the conclusion of the service the minister read from the lines THE TWO FACES. . -One man was given a misfit face by the gods that fashioned the human race. His chin, was long and his nose was squaret and his teeth were slanting most everywhere, and his skin was coari?e and his mouth was wide and horses rooked at that face and shied. But his heart was good and his thoughts were clean and he loved the true and abhorred the mean, jfhe years went on and the soul within the soul of a man who hated sin lit up that face till it seemed to shine with the beauty rare of a face divine. One man was given an angel face by the gods that fashioned the human race. And he took the road with a downward CUMBERLANDS ASSEMBLE THURSDAY IN MEMPHIS grade, he roamed afar where so manyl Fulton, Ky., is the stated clerk, strayed; he played the dice and he held carouse, was false to men and to all his vows. His thoughts were all of the fell delights of the hated days and the sordid nights. The years went on and the soul within the soul of a man who courted sin had written down on that seraph face a record dark with a long disgrace; and people said as he tottered past, "What a fiendish mug on that poor outcast." Walt Mason, the Poet Phil osopher, Junior High School. The Junior High School class appeared at the Reynolds Theatre Monday night. The stage was decorated in green stuff and the girls looked pretty in white frocks. Rev. Drake offered prayer. The salutatonan was Miss Vivian Woodrow, one of the' bet students of the school, whose recitation was indeed well timed and appropriate to the occasion. Super intendent Ellis, of the Humboldt City Schools, was present as orator of the night, whose address was complimentary to the Union City schools. Mr. Ellis remarked that our schools were known beyond the borders of the county and that they were cited by many of the city schools as a standard by which to be governed. Mr. Ellis spoke on the subject of True Greatness." He was presented by Mr. DeBow, principal of the High School, who spoke of Mr. Ellis's experience in school work and his oratory. Mr. Ellis admitted every thing but the reference to himself as an orator. He was not willing to ac cept the soft impeachment. But he made a fine address. The boy or girl who would achieve true greatness must be truthful, honest and industrious. They must be .unselfish and useful. They must, have philanthropy and breadth of character. They .must be men and women, neither butterflies nor machines, but must give to the world of the talents that have been given to them for the upbuilding of the race, and the glory of God. Mr. Ellis is pro foundly interested in his work. He likes to be an instrument to guide and train . the minds and mold" the character of children and enjoys their youth and spirit. The address was delightfully re ceived. Mr. DeBow stated that he had just barely escaped . making an address. Marshall DeBow is a tall, droll charac ter, and his homely humor is sometimes very infectious. He looked the other night a little like he might break 'out in a Sol Smith Russell sketch. Some body asked Russell about his drollery and heeaid it was ingrowing. , Mr. De Bow was very proud of his class and the work of the school. . Miss No! a Allmond was the valedic torian and a good one. She reviewed the work of the nine grades and the as sociations of the schools, and in a very gracious way complimented the teach ers, the principal,' the superintendent and the Board of Education. Prof. Nute delivered. the diplomas and eulogized the class as .the best one. The exercises were largely attended. The class is as follows: Willette Baird, Nola Allmond, Vivian Wood row, Clatie Andrews, Thelma Nolen, Lavera Lovelace, SadieJWilliams. Class night was observed at the school building Tuesday night.

Saturday afternoon dramatic lecture by Thomas Brooks Fletcher, "The Martyrdom of Fools." Saturday evening song recital by Alice Niel sen, the prima donna soprano, said to be a native Tennessean, but one of the world's great artists. Miss Nielsen's first work of note was with the Bostonians with Jessie Bartlett Davis, Eugene Cowles, Joseph Haw ley, Joe Sheehan and the celebrated comedians, Henry Clay Barnabee and Jas. Frothingham in Robin Hood, American light opera by Reg inald DeKoven, probably the great est success of all the contempora neous light operas which enjoyed a popular run of approximately two thousand nights. It was in this cast that the three greatest American voices were developed: Miss Niel sen as soprano, Mr. Cowles as bass, Mr. Sheehan as tenor, and probably Mr. Hawley as baritone. It was al so in this work that Jessie Bartlett Davis popularized the song, "O Promise Me." After this Miss Nielsen star red with her own company in the "Fortune Teller and the "Serenade," and not satisfied with a career in light opera she gave up her work and for two or three years devoted herself to the study of grand opera in Paris, with a series of subsequent appearances in London and the cities of Europe and American with Ca ruso, Melba and many of the other great stars.
