By Order of Committee SUCCESSFUL CONVENTION The St. Clair County 2nd Dis trict Sunday School Convention, held in the Church of Christ, Far go, on June 2nd, was one of the very best S. S. conventios ever held in that district. The church did not begin to seat the crowd that gathered to listen to the in teresting program that was per fectly rendered. II. R. Moore, state president, was the main speaker of the day. In Mr. Moore's address he showed very clearly the importan t part that the Sunday school must play in this period of moral and social unrest. Papers and addresses by Miss Mclntyre, Mrs. Moore, Rev. Bur dock, Miss Draper and Rex Stro bridge were greatly enjoyed while those who gave recitations and helped in the singing did them selves proud. The convention voted to hold a joint picnic at Nye's grove, on July 4th. This promises to be one of the greatest events ever put on in this section. A fine pro gram is being prepared with Matt Mullen as main speaker of the day. There will also bo a good baseball game and every thing will be done to give the children a real fourth of July.

Junior Play The Juniors had a full house on the occasion of staging their play Friday evening, June 2nd, and as our copy of the "write-up" was inadvertently omitted from last week's Expositor, we are going to make only a brief mention of it this week as it has now become ancient history and stale news is worse than none. Our little city is always inter ested in all school work and the home talent plays are certainly well patronized. Tho Juniors had selected a clever play to work on, that of "Oh, Clarence" one of Booth Tarkington's best. Some of the character takers were perhaps a little stage struck, it being their first appearance in a professional way and others re quired some prompting, but for the most part, all took their cast ings very well and the play went off very nicely. The specialties between the acts were bright and entertaining and the Yale orchestra did fine work throughout the evening. HORSE RACES AT YALE Bills are now being distributed advertising some real fast horse races at Yale for July Fourth, and those in charge' of the doing3 have received lots of encourage ment from owners ot last ones from many towns in the Thumb.

As an extra attraction, there will be a real, fast base ball game, be tween the Yale City Team and the boys from Fargo. This will be a full afternoon of good clean sport.

TO "GET" FOES Threaten Retaliation If Forced To" Pay Fines (From Times-Herald) The so-called sporting circles of the city are somewhat agitated over the announcement of Prose cuting Attorney Henry Baird that the five gamblers, who were re cently sentenced to serve 15 days in jail and pay a fine of $150 must come across with their fines or possibly serve another term in jail. After serving of their sen tences the gamblers did not pay into the court the $150 fine which was also assessed against them. After waiting a reasonable length of time for the gamblers to pay their fines, Prosecuting At torney Baird sent them notices to the elfect that unless the fines were paid the necessary steps would be taken to enforce the payment. Word was returned to Prose cuting Attorney Baird that if the payment of the fines was enforc ed, "that the gamblers would re taliate in some way," but the specific nature of the retaliation was not outlined. n investigation was started, ?nd it has been learned from good uthority that tin .gamblers and their friends intend to take an ictive part in politics for the purpose of "getting" those who were instrumental in sending them to jail. One of the gamblers who has been active in spreading uopaganda c.s to what the sport- ng element intends to do at the next election is credited with the statement to the effect that "we are going after every ofiicial who in any way had anything to do with sending us to jail." Just at present Attorney Henry Baird and Judge Harvey Tappan are the particular targets of the gam bling and sporting element. There appears to be no secret ibout the activity in organizing the sporting element of the city to take an active part in the com ing political campaigns. The five gamblers who were sentenced to jail for 15 days and fined ' $150 apiece are William Reams, Geo. Poppas, Jerry Faulkner, Edward Smith and Pete Williams. Smith, it is understood, intends to pay his fine without protest, and is not interested in the so-called political activities which are in the process of organization.

FORI) NEARS OUTPUT OF 5,000 A PAY Dealers Call For 191,750 Cars Trucks and Tractors For June Ford dealers in the United States have asked for a total of 191,750 Ford Cars, Trucks and Tractors to meet their June re tirements, says a statement is sued by the Ford Motor Company, Detroit, Mich. As a result, the estimated out put for June has been boosted to 140,000, which is an increase of 10,000 over last month, and, of course, will set up a new high record, in spite of the fact that the May output showed a sub stantial increase over the prev ious high month. Ford sales have been constant ly increasing since the first of the year, the demand growing during the past two months faster than it has been possible to increase producion. Monday, May 16th brought forth a new record of cars built for one day, the figures reaching 1878 at the close of the day's work. This was an increase of 16 over May 15th, when the previous high mark was estab- ished. On May 18th, the six millionth Ford motor was assembled. No. 5,000,000 came off the line May 28th, 1921. . Ford officials state that every attempt is being made to build a suflicient number of cars and trucks to fill the retail require ments of their 8,000 dealers. I -...pERSONSL...

Twenty-Eight Graduates Receive Their Diplomas FRED DALE WOOD GIVES INTERESTING TALK TO THOSE JUST QUITTING SCHOOL LIFE The last function of 1922 grad uating days for Yale High school was held on Thursday evening last in the Auditorium. The stage was tastefully dec orated with flowers, and the four teen young ladies and fourteen young men looked very womanly in white gowns and manly in gray suits as they faced the audience. Superintendent A. T. Green mean, Fred Dale Wood, the speak er of the evening, Rev3, Martin, pastor of the Presbyterian church and Stroup of the Methodist Prot estant church, also occupied seats on the stage. Speaking to the subject, 'The Story of an Ideal," ,Mr. Wood quoted the following from St. Paul, and built his address around it: "This one thing 1 do. Forgetting those things which are behind and reaching forth unto those things which are before, I press toward the mark for the prize." He impressed on the members of the graduating class and the audienco the beau ty of definitcness in one's ideals, remarking lather quaintly, as an aside, "if you are determined to be a horse thief, be a good one, or be none." After elaborating the idea that nothing is guinea by promiscuity and airnlessncss of thought or action, lv; defined the word, ideal, as Webster de fines it,, "a standard of perfec tion," but said it meant much more than that. "I believe," said Mr. Wood, "that all of us would have a bet ter and clearer concept of our duties and obligations in life if we only. had a deeper understand ing of the words we use. A ma jority of us acquire our language by absorbtion rather than by in-! vestigation. That is. one of the J reasons we go wrong, many times, j in our application of the word, j ideal. An ideal is not some high,, intangible, almost unreachable! thing to be striven for, ii is 1 something to work by, or with.' "It is an instrument of accom- plishment, a tool, just as truly ai tool as the plaile of. thy carpen-j tcr, the trowel o'f the mason, the; stick and rule of the printer arc tools, and if we will get and hold : that definition of an ideal we can ; better understand its application , to the affairs of our every-day ' lives." i "All people are governed by j their ideals. If those ideals are j high and exalted, so will the one I having such ideals live a high and I exalted life. If one's "ideals are! on a lower plane, one must, per force, live one's life on that level, until the standard ol ideals is raised. "It is trite, but very true, that no one ever gets out of life any thing that is not first put into life. If you put in sweetness, kindness, unselfishness, helpfulness, proper energy and righteous ambition. all those things will be returned unto you a million fold. On the other hand, if you put in grouch iness, distemper, meanness of soul, pessimism and fault find ing, you may be sure those things, too, will be returned to you many times increased. You can not gossip about your neighbor without expecting your neighbor to gossip about you. You cannot destroy character in others and except to escape the attack on your character others will make. "Whether your lives become successes or failures will depend on you, the individual, and not on your neighbor or friend. As your ideals are, so will your life be. I congratulate the people of Yale on these bright young men and women of the graduating class. I believe the nation is safe in the hands of these and such as these and that these young folks here will, in their own time, take up their burdens of faith-and carry them onward and forward, to the glory heights, better, maybe, than you and I, their elders, have ever done. I have faith in the youth of America, and I bid you have faith in the members of this grad uating class, who will soon go forth into the hurly-burly of the great world, carrying aloft the shining banners of patriotism and good citizenship, because of the ideals with which they are imbued." This splendid address was one of the byst that a Yale audience has ever listened to and was re ceived with the closest attention and heartiest interest. Following came the awarding of diplomas by Supt. Greenman to his twenty-eight graduates. The music of the evening was furnished by the High school orchestra.
