I greet you Parents, who have aided us to reach this step in our education friends, who interested in our work, have gathered here this evening honored Board of Ed ucation who have ever furthered the best interests of our school, instructors, who have taught us each hour something worth know ing, I extend to you all a hearty welcome. You have assembled to show your respect for us and your apprecia tion of our workr hence we feel that you should be heartily welcomed. You are our guests this evening, aat"we- receive yoa iritis Joy and happiness. Today we have reached that goal toward which we have been striv ing for four long, yet seemingly shortr years, we have just begun to find oat how little we know and how much there is for us to learn. For education is not merely the ac cumulation of facts and the commit ting to memory of laws and form ulas, but it is that which offers knowledge in such form that we ap prehend more clearly the relations of life, and in consequence we are better able to cope with actual ex perience. Education is a prepara tion for complete living. Oar education, therefore, should be of great importance to us and we should try to make the most of our opportunities. The greater care we take in our preparation, the better lives we shall be able to live. Our Divine Teacher spent thirty years in his preparation and he may well be our example. Disraeli says. *"Keep your standard of knowledge high, attempt great things, expect great things and you will achieve great things.T Progress is a thing of chief im portance in education!, it depends upon our perserveranee and dili gence, oursuccess depends upon our progress. The world needs people who are alertr thinking creatures, people who keep their faculties sharpened, their energies trained,. and their minds versed in truths and principles obtained thru care ful study and broad observation, people who familiarize themselves with every new idea that may con tain a posibilitv for the upbuilding and betterment of the human race. The new education teaches us to do our own thinking it stimulates us to seek constantly for the best and thus it aids in the formation of good character. Character should be the great ambition of youth. It is a latent power which must pe un folded thru education, and when folly developed it becomes the power by which we are guided. Our studies are the tools which we must use in bringing this power. Emerson says: "Men of character are the conscience of the society to which they belong," and this is certainly true for their influence is felt everywhere and their spirit is contagious. History proves how education and WARREN us nature of toe first inhabitants to a peaceful civilized nation. People whose only delight was war and conquest have been taught to be kind and considerate to their fellow men, the great lesson which we all must learn. Let us then make a good com mencement,, and we will be the more certain to succeed. Lowell says. '"Greatly begin' tho thou have time But for a line, be that sublime Not failure but low aim is crime. Another writer says '"Build well from the foundation, see that the corner stone of honor is well laid and cemented to it, each on its own place the solid block of integrity, sobriety, faithfulness and purity. Let nostone have in it a flaw. Per fectly formed and properly laid there will rise for each a temple of character whose possessor will have earned the reward "'well done.' Again we bid you a hearty wel come. A trio Nature Carnival, was sung very delightfully by Misses Cross. Swanson and Cross. Next followed the address of President Weld, of Moorhead Nor mal a scholarly effort that was listened to most attenatively. In choice and eloquent langauge studded here and there with gems of poetry, he lifted his listeners to higher and nobler ideals of life. A quartette, consisting of Misses Cross. Swanson, Bakke and Cross, sang "Po litttle Lamb in a pleas ing and effective manner, after which]the valedictory was delivered by Miss Luella M. Imsdahl. Her production was a fine one, both as regards form and thought, and was gracetully delivered. That the instruction she has received in the Warren High School, has not been given in vain, was very evident from what she said. Kind friends and citizensof Warren. You have shown by your pres ence and attention here this eve ning your sincere interest in us, and in the worthy school which you have erected and maintained in our city. You have realized that the world needs more highly developed men and women who are equipped to fight and to conquer the battles which life presents, and you have placed it within the power of all to secure the advantages of a good education. You have made great sacrifices for the cause of education through the agency of our magnif icent public school system, in which all children, regardless of creeds or sects, are educated side by side, drink at the same deep fountain of knowledge, and thus grow up as friends, trusting each other. For your good will toward us and the cause which we represent as a class we most heartily thank you. and sincerely hope that we shall prove worthy of your kindness to us. Members of the Board of Education To you we are profoundly thank ful for such a proficient school as we have attended. You have been willing to bear the burdens and as sume the responsibilities intrusted to you by the citizens of Warren. It is largely due to your earnest en deavors that this school has reached the degree of excellence which it now possesses. You have faithfully guarded its material interests and guided it with unceasing progress so that year by year it has grown in size and excellence until now it ranks among the best in the state. We are the ones who are reaping the benefit of your labors, and as we go out in the world we hope we may realize more fully what you have done for us, and that you may ever have cause to look with the greatest satisfaction upon all your efforts for those who must now bid you EarewelL Members of the Faculty: NORWAY To jroo, haired m^bt^amt, S ^Lti?Sf' _5.22 our first word of parting is due.

The time has now come when we must extend the parting hand to all our instructors, but it is with al most the same regret, as when, on leaving home we would say good bye. To you has been given the task of impressing directly upon our minds those truths which shall develop the best manhood and womanhood in each one of us, and of implanting in our brains and hearts the germs of knowledge whose perfect growth shaE form lives of success. Your task has not been an easy one your earnest ef forts for us have not always met with the appreciation they deserve, but in spite of discouragements you have still patiently done your duty and kept up your interest in us. The future will show better than the present how well you have dis charged the responsibilities placed upon you, how faithfully you have labored in our behalf. Now as we are about to leave you we realize more fully than ever before what you have done for us. Here we have been under your guidance, we have sought advice and assistance from you, who have always been so able and willing to bestow it. We mast now enter a larger and wider sphere, the school of life, where there are greater difficulties toover come and harder battles to win, but where we shall have none to guide and assist us. Often we shall look back over our school days and re call the many truths you have ex pressed to us. We shall them be able to appreciate more fully the benefit of the training we have re ceived here. We can never repay youwe can but express our sin cere gratitude, grasp your out stretched hands and with a last farewell go out into the world to act.

With our best wishes for your continued success, we bid you all farewell. Fellow Classmates Our school days are now ended and this may be the last time we meet together as a class. With the parting comes a feeling of sadness that cannot be avoided. We are drawn together today as we have never been before, we cannot realize that those ties which have bound us for so long are so soon to be broken. Yet there is a limit to all things, "To the shortest $ath and to the longest lane there comes' an end."" We would gladly linger yet a while, but each one of us must now make his way alone and push on his own journey through the broad field of life, for which the past has been but a preparation. We may have many difficulties awaiting us, but if we push forward with faith and cour age, we shall at length succeed. We may often fail, but let us remem ber that "The greatest glory con sists not in never falling but in rising every time wefall/" Though none of us may ever reach the heights of fame, may there remain with us. above everything else, the consciousness of duty well perfor med, suffering nobly endured, all of life faithfully lived. In the hope of such a future and with charity to ward all the world, let us say a last farewell. Mr. W. F.
