The class of 1912 of Heppner High
have finished their work and received
their diplomas, the commencement
exerciess at the Christian church on
Fridav evenina last being the end of
the labors of the young men and young
ladies with the local school.
The clans consisted of five boys and
three girls, these being Minnalena
Cameron, Arthur R. Crawford. Marie
Jeanette Haeer, Sidney Hallock, Bar
old A. Cohn, TenaL. Devio, Marshall
Phelps and Harry Rood.
Messrs Crawford, Phelps and Cohn
were the class orators. Crawford
spoke from the theme, "The Old Or
der Changeth," drawing his thoughts
from the history of onr country and
setting out some of the various
changes that had taken place, all
pointing to greatly Improved condi
tions. Great achievements have been
made and wonderful has been the
progress in government, in science, in
mechanics, in agriculture and in ed
ucation, and vest improvement made
over the old order. A good lesson
was drawn and made applicable to
our present day and generation, and
more especially to those just launch
ing out into new fields of life from
the High School. The oration was
well prepared. ' Phepla drew good
lessons from his subject, "The Re
ward of Perseverance," gathering his
inspiration from the history of the
constrcution of the Panama canal
perhaps the greatest achievement in
all modern history. His address was
full of eood historical facts, showing
that he had to wotk out much of the
detailed events of the building of this
connecting link between the two great
oceans by studious research, but not
withstanding he kept his data in mind
and did not fail to reach a fitting cli
max in tne good lessons arawn.
Colin had for his subject, "Beyond
the Alps Lies Italy," and he certainly
is entitled to credit for the literary
and oratorical ability displayed. In
this address the class motto: "Suc
cess Depends On How Haid We Try,"
was Btrikingly illustrated, and Harold
delivered his part in a very acceptable
manner, indfcd. Hannibal could net
reach Rome without crossing the Alps,
almost impassible barriers, but Rome
was the object and aim of his efforts,
and he succeeded. So it is with the
young men and women just entering
upon the responsibilities of life; they
should have an object, an aim. and
this should be attained although there
be seemingly impassible barriers in
Misses Cameron and Hager filled
the musical part of the program for
the class and delivered well prepared
vccal and instrumental selections; the
vocal duet by these two young ladies
being deserving of special mention.
Miss Funk also favored the aud
ience with a vocal solo which was well
reoeived and graoiously responded to
an encore. Prof. Otto's orchestra
played selections at the opening and
the closing of the program.
The class address was by Hon. J.
H. Ackerman, of Monmouth, presi
dent of the State Normal School, and
for twelve years superintendent of
public instruction for Oregon. Mr.
Ackerman has appeared a number of
times before Heppner audiences and
the people here are always glad to
bear him. His address on this occa
sion was fully up to the expectations
of his audience something good was
looked for and they were not in the
least disappointed. He accused the
speakers of the class of "stealing his
thunder" in that the stress of their
thought was along the same line he
wished to sptak, but being possessed
of a fund of experience, Prof. Acker
man was not at a loss to entertain the
people with a splendid address. In
the course of his remarks he took
occasion to commend very highly the
proposed new school building for
Heppner, and it was gratifying to
note the spirit in which his words on
this subject were received. People
of Heppner hope to have Mr. Acker,
man with them manv times in the
The diplomas were presented to the
class by Vawter Urawford, clerk of
the school board.
It is gratifying to know that the
majority of this class are contempla
ting entering higher schools of learn
ing this Fall and pursue their studies
determined to gain lor themseves a
fuller measure of education and be
better prepared to make their way
in life. Heppner is proud of this
class, is proud of their school, and
there will certainly be no hindrance
to future betterment.

treatment that would bring reliel.

No New Trial.
John Irvin, who was recently con
victed of murder in the second degree
for the killing of J. A. McCraw at
Whitney, will not have a new trial
in the local court, as a motion filed
some time ago by bis attorneys, J.
L. Rand and A. A. Sjiith, asking for
a retrial, was denied Tuesday by Cir
cuit Judge Smith, savs the Democrat.
The motion asking for a new trail
contained some essential features, in
one instance alleging that one of the
jurors was prejudiced against the
prisoner and stated before the trial
that he deserved to be hung. In view
of the denial of a motion for another
trial in the local courts the case will
be appealed.--Sumpter Amerian.
