Benjamin Carroll, of Conowingo, speaking on “American Leisure” and Roger Kayhart, of Mountain Lakes, New Jersey, discussing “The Menace of Huey Long” were keenly analytical in their consideration of present day problems. Vincent Newton, of Hones dale, Pennsylvania, received the sec ond award for a finely constructed and expertly presented oration “A Re sounding Question” —a dissertation on crime and criminals. The first prize was won by Malcolm Kullmar, of Ken sington, who spoke eloquently and convincingly on the subject “What is Wrong With the Law?” The judges were the Honorable Joshua Clayton, of Elkton; Mr. George Gifford, Supervising Principal of the Calvert Public Schools, and Rev. Wayne Monroe, Pastor of the Port De posit Presbyterian Church. Musical interludes were provided by Mr. George Aykroyd, organist, and a vocal trio comprising Robert Howard, Jr., of Morristown, New Jersey, and Robert Webster and William Winter, of Holi daysburg, Pennsylvania. On Saturday, June 1, a large and en thusiastic group of Alumni of the West Nottingham Academy gathered at the school for the annual reunion of the Alumni Association. After the lunch eon, Mr. J. Burton Wiley of Morris towm, New Jersey, president of the as sociation, presided over a most inter esting business meeting. Among the more noted alumni present were: Mr. Jethro Johnson of Media, Pennsyl vania, calss of 1884 ; The Honorable C. C. Squier of Port Deposit, Maryland, class of 1890; Dr. Ernest Row’land of Liberty Grove, class of 1892; The Rev. John A. Nesbitt of Catonsville, Mary land, President of Trustees; W. A.

Nesbitt of Verona, New York, class of 1910; and Mrs. Frances Steel Hastings of Milton, Pennsylvania, class of 1912. A group of eighteen young men of the class of 1935 were received into the association; and a petition for membership by the ladies who had been students of the West Nottingham Seminary, was accepted. The association then approved the following proposals to publish an ad dress book; to underwrite a printed is sue of he Literary Advance featuring Alumni news to be published one month before commencement in 1936; to establish a Loyalty and Scholarship Fund for the purpose of raising money for several SIOO scholarships to the Academy for worthy boys who need them.

Dare iHopkins, Wilm ingon, Delaware; Vice Presidents, Dr. Ernest Rowland, Liberty Grove, Mary land; H. G. Hanna, Colora, Maryland, and Mrs. William T. Jenness, Colora, Maryland; Secretary-Treasurer, Miss Esther Maxwell, Rising Sun, Maryland. Mrs. Isabel A. Nesbitt, Catonsville, Maryland, was appointed to fill a va cancy on the records committee of which Mr. W. A. Shaw is chairman. Baccalaureate Service, Sunday, June 2 The beauty of the June weather, the floral decorations beautiful in their simplicity in the old church, the great congregation of friends and well-wish ers of old West Nottingham all served to contribute to and enhance that most solemn of occasions, Baccalaureate Sunday. Dr. Albert H. Hibshman in his powerful and inspiring address stirred the hearts and minds of his lis teners, and gave to the young men whose term as undergraduates has passed, the happiest of memories of the church, which has played such a large part, in their life and development at West Nottingham Academy. Dr. Hibshman based his sermon on the Book of Esther, taking as his text the closing sentence of the fourteenth verse of the fourth chapter: "and who knoweth whether thou are come to the kingdom for such a time as this.” Emphasizing the last phrase of the text, the speaker traced through His tory the evolution of men and women of the hour, their employment as in struments of the Almighty’s will, and the unique personal relationship be tween God and such of his servants as Esther and Joan of Arc. But, every man, the pastor insisted, possesses the basis for the establishment of such a relationship. Commencement Recital Well Received On Sunday afternoon, June 2, a spe cial recital was presented in the Pres byterian Church at West Nottingham. The participants were Mr. George Aykroyd, English instructor and Dean of the Academy, and Mr. Robert M. Howard, Sr., Director of Music of the Morristown, N. J., Public Schools. Mr. George Aykroyd, organist, dis played complete technical control of his instrument allied with genuine t interpretative skill. Particularly im pressive was his performance of a group of Bach “Preludes” and the staggeringly difficult "Organ Concer to in B Flat Major” of Handel. Other organ solos included compositions of Gounod, Widor, Tschaikovsky. and Borowski. The guest soloist, Mr. Robert How ard, revealed a rich, resonant, power ful, bass-baritone of exceptional range. The Handel aria “Hear Me! Ye Winds and Waves,” with its long sustained phrases and inherently dramatic qual ity, provided ample proof of his mas tery of the singing art. Compositions of Knapp, Pfleuger and Glaxington Harker completed the vocal offerings. This concert proved to be one pf the most enjoyable of the commencement functions at the Acaemdey and re ceived the approval of a large and enthusiastic audience. Vesper Service The annual Commencement Vesper Service of West Nottingham Academy ♦ was held on Sunday, June 2, at 7:00 P. M., in the West Nottingham Presby terian Church. Many friends of the - Academy were present to enjoy a truly Inspiring devotional service. f The address was given by the Rev erend Thomas A. Williams, of Salis bury, Md., former moderator of the New Castle Presbytery, who has been I prominent in educational circles. The text of Dr. Williams’ informal message was “Driving Back the Fog,” with con crete examples of modern scientific achievements in clearing the skies of | fog to aid navigation of the air, the highway, and the sea. Mentally, spiritually, politically, industrially, and socially, said Dr. Williams, the world is laboring through a fog of doubt and distrust, like a steamer lost in dense harbor fogs, making hardly perceptible progress. Continued exer cise of courage, patience, and faith is the solution offered by Dr. Williams for the problems of this brave new world. Mr. George O. Aykroyd, Dean and Instructor of .Music and English at West Nottingham Academy, otiiciated at the organ, and Jack Burkley, one of ne younger students, added to the pleasure of the evening by rendering a vocal solo. Commencement Exercises, June 3 Culminating in the address of Dr. L,eon C. Prince. Professor of History at Dickinson College and State Senator for Pennsylvania, the commencement activities of the class of 1935 came to a close Monday noon, June 3, and 17 seniors, sitting for the last time as undergraduates in the historic West Nottingham Presbyterian Church, sur rounded by families and friends, re ceived from Mr. Frank Sheppard, long time member of the Board of Trustees, their diplomas and best wishes for continued success in the fields of their future endeavors. A more appropriate speaker than Dr. Prince, who combines the practicability of the man of affairs and the idealism and intellectual honesty of the genu ine scholar, could not have been chosen. His theme, Character and the criterion for its estimate, complement ed coincidentally, but most effectively the Baccalaureate sermon on Person ality delivered the previous morning oy Dr. Albert H. Hibshman. Youth, Dr. Prince brought out, at the beginning of the preparatory course has the tendency to regard the coming four years as if through the reverse and of a telescope. While at * the close of the preparatory education period a backward view over the events of school years produces the effect of a close-up. True perspec tive and the realization that a second ary school education regarded unemotional standpoint is tantamount to an endowment policy, in return for the money invested and the time devoted the successful graduate has gained a mind enriched by Literature • and sharpened by a knowledge and ap preciation of the scientific method through his pursuit of courss in Mathematics and the Sciences he has achieved through his study of History a deeper understanding of mankind and a realization that the ruling force of the world is character. ( In striving to form ones own char . acter also, the true test is that of L purpose. “Is it right?,ls it the will of , him that sent me? Doing makes the deed, but unselfish doing the man, and , the true basis of character is to be found in the virtues, faith, courage, sincerity, and patience.” Salutatorian Warren Lowerre oflfer ’ ed a thoughtful resume of the question of war debts, deprecating the cancel j lation pleas of radical economists and defending the succinctly expressed ? verdict of the late President Coolidge I —“They hired the money, didn't they?” With national incomes in Europe in , creasing, the logical course for us to follow, if we are to remove the ever mounting burden from the shoulders . of American taxpayers, is one of pati ent waiting pending the presentation of a plan that will be effective in ' | practice. , E. Newell Jenkins, valedictorian, presented a well phrased and excel ! lently delivered address on “The Genius of Shakespeare." The speaker held the audience in rapt attention ’ while each masterful stroke of ex • pression painted a picture of the flow er of Shakespeare a genius. One could hardly expect a more adequately ad ■ dress from a college senior. The ■ speaker finished his dissertation with ■ a touching farewell to the school. Headmaster, J. Paul Slaybaugh, gratefully acknowledged the pari 1 played by the trustees, the staff, and faculty of the Academy, and the • families of the students in cooperat ing wholeheartedly to make this a i year of noteworthy accomplishment at West Nottingham. \ 1 There follows the roster of the 1 graduating class and a list of winners of awards: John Abel, 111, Elkton, Md.; Walter M.

The ten acre tract owned by the Caroline County Bank of Greensboro, will be used for the camp. The lease was signed for one year, with an optional extension of time for two years longer. The importance of draining the Long Marsh Ditch which forms the boundary line between Queen Anne's and Caroline counties, long has been j apparent to the officials of the Ex ; tension Service of the University of Maryland, who finally have secured the fruition of their project, with the co-operation of Representative T. Alan Goldsbcrough, of Denton. Surveys and blue prints of the area have been made repeatedly since the reclamation project has been agitated. While the land affected by the lack of proper drainage facilities has been in cultivation, the water table has been so high that it has been relatively unproductive. The Long Marsh Ditch watershed is an oblong area fourteen miles long, having an average width of five and one-half miles, according to an official survey. In Maryland, 49,600 acres will be drained, of which 15,- 500 acres are in Caroline County and the remaining 34,100 acres in Queen Anne’s county. Dormitories accommodating 260 men, a camp hospital and garages for ten trucks will he built and water supply will be installed. Preliminary work will begin on tributaries of the ditch, starting at Mason’s Branch, near Crouse’s mill pond, which was built originally by slave labor, according to tradition, and tributaries of the Choptank river are included in the proposed opera tions of the drainage project. o WILL ATTEND WOMEN’S SHORT COURSE The thirteenth annual Rural Women’s Short Course, will be held June 17-22 at College Park, under auspices of the Extension Service of the University of Maryland.
