RECEIVE DIPLOMAS COMMENCEMENT RECITAL TWO PLAYS GIVEN DEGREES ARE GIVEN ELEVEN FROM PREPARATORY DEPT. PLEASES LARGE AUDIENCE BY SENIOR CLASS TO CLASMF SEVEN Albert Reed Wins Scholarship. Pres. Pennington Speaks Seven men and women received B. A. degrees from Pacific College at the commencement exercises held at Wood-Mar Hall on June 9. Those receiving diplomas were: Helen Rinard, Albert I. Reed, Edna Christie, Harlan Rinard, Lucille Logston, Frank D. Roberts, and Olive Terrell. The scholarship, based on excellence of character and quality of curriculum work, was presented to Albert I. Reed. The Junior scholarship was awarded to Edna Doree. As the opening number of the exercises "Duetto," by Mendelssohn, was played by Miss Ruth Holding and Clifton Parrett, violins, Mrs. Hull, piano, and Alexander Hull, 'cello. Rev. George H. Lee spoke the invocation, and the commencement address was delivered by President Levi T. Pennington. In his address, which he entitled "Building the Future," Pres. Pennington made the statement that life is a world of problems which change with each generation. Problems are an evidence of life: where ;l.<"-» if the greatest amount of life, there will be the largest number of problems, and therefore the places of least safety are those of greatest acivity. The four greatest problems are of religion, science, races, and international relationships. The question is, How shall we solve these problems? Some folks solve them by merely ignoring them; these people are drifting, and the only place drifting gets one is down and doesn't help others. Other folks have the destructive attitude and proceed to tear down everything they find in sight. But destruction goes too far, for it not only does away with any evil but destroys the good also. Another common attitude for solving these problems is the controversial: My way appears absolutely right to me, and your way appears absolutely right to you, etc. But controversy is inadequate. Good and evil are not disembodied spirits, they are tied up definitely with personality, so that an attack of an error may injure the individual holding the error, and that is undesirable. One must win the one in error. An error or wrong attitude is intangible and can't be destroyed, it is therefore necessary to win a man from his error in order to solve the problem. The attitude which is much too uncommon is the constructive attitude, seeking to build good up rather than to tear down evil. Iron bars won't hold in an idea, neither can an idea be crucified. The easy answer is always wrong. Temptation should not be set up and fought, for usually temptation will thus win. Temptation and all other problems must be met constructively by building in good to crowd out the evil. This can be done by strengthening the soul's powers through a more intense worship of God. Our social problems are very important. The United States have been an example in being the first to set up laws prohibiting all liquor traffic, but

On Tuesday afternoon, June 8, the commencement exercises of the academy and commercial departments were held. The following eleven graduates received academic diplomas: Robert Holding, Hedwig Schaad. Johanna Gerretts, Ralph Yergen, Ruth Holding, ,Seth Oliver Terrell, Elsie Reed, Donald Crozer, Winona Smith, Lela Gulley and Harold Hodson. The scholarship in Pacific college based on the worthiness of the student from the standpoint both of character and grades was divided between Elsie Reed and Johanna Gerritts, since each were deemed equally worthy on both accounts. The commercial department graduated two, Mildred Frazier and Elsie Reed. Miss Reed completed her commercial work with exceptionally high grades and received the Remington gold award pin for typing at the rate of 55 words ' per minute for 15 minutes with less ' than six errors. | While Helen Holding played a march the class filed down the aisles and on ' to the platform by means of steps plac•ed at the front of the platform. Rev. ' R. S. Holding offered the invocation. The music of the program was furnished by Warren Mcrsi of Nebraska Central college, who- whistled two In[ dian selections, accompanied by Helen I Holding at the piano. The commenceI ment address was given by Dr. Sceva B. Laughlin, professor of economics and sociology at Willamette University.

Of course, those who attended the program Monday night and saw "The Travelers" could explain it for you, for the frightened woman traveler did have the "strangest feeling." And who wouldn't, when shut in a forsaken Silician hotel, not understanding a single word spoken by the suspicious looking natives, knowing that bandits were abroad, and then hearing the most hair-raising shrieks just as the lights went out? Not even the bravado of her bold husband could withstand all of the complications of that long, fearful night despite the fact that they did find out—next morning— that those frightful screams were only the result of the landlady's saxaphone practice. To add to this most intensely Interesting comedy, a little touch of romance was evidenced in the love affair of the beautiful daughter and a fellow traveler.

FEDERATION CHAPEL SURVEY (Continued from page three) "A geographical tabulation of the categorical replies for and agains tcompulsory chapel appear to illustrate the conservative tendencies of the South, which was the sole region to support both Sunday and weekday chapel. New England, at the other extreme, opposed them both, by narrower margins. The remaining regions were in general more strongly in favor of compulsory weekday chapel than of Sunday, the sentiment being implied in a number of cases that the student's conscience be allowed to serve as his guide on Sunday, in cases where church services were accessible. "Following is a tabulation of the benefits conferred by compulsory chapel, as gleaned from the answers to question two: affords religious inspiration, fosters Idealism, 103; promotes college unity, 103; fixes the habit of worship, 48; gives education in religion and places it on a par with curriculum work, 32; gives opportunity for official recognition of worship of God essential in a Christian college, 19; for administration purposes, 15; for miscellaneous events, such as lectures, musical programs, and the like, 15. "The principa) trends of religious interests among undergraduates, as set forth in question three, are as follows: emphasis on social service, 72; independent, questioning attitude freer to pexress Its beliefs and more impatient of creeds, 62; no change. 42; change for the worse, 29; change for the better, 26." TREFIAN The regular meeting of the Treflan Literary Society was held in the -dormitory parlors Wednesday, May 6. After the business meeting a very good program was given' consisting of the following: Duet, "Morning," from a Grieg Suite, by Hilma Hendrickson and Rachel Lundquist; a review of Peer Gynt and a short biography of Ibsen by Olive Terrell, and the "March of the Dwarfs" by Ruth Ryan. The program was very well prepared and very much appreciated.—Edna Ralston.

THE AGE OF SPECIALIZATION Now there are barber shops where one man lathers you and another man shaves you. Unfortunately for us, we were successfully lathered one day, only to learn that the shaving barber was at home sick. On hustling down the street in search of an old-fashioned barber shop, we were nearly arrested for being at large with-a severe case of hydrophobia. It made us biting mad. This specialization Idea is spreading to all professions. Men of medicine are now becoming very particular what kind of cases they take. A neighbor of ours put in a hurry call for a doctor when his child swallowed poison, but the doctor, being a specialist in eye, ear, nose and throat troubles, tried to cure the child by putting drops in his eye. Even the girls are beginning to specialize in their courtships. They pick out one suitor to bring them flowers, another to buy them jewelry, and another one to take them to the shows. They have one man who proposes on Sundays and another one proposes on Wednesday, and so on. We hope to see the day when motorcycle cops will arrest only the drivers of certain kinds of cars—and we won't drive that kind.

student, both in school and out of school, should be to build up constructively a scientific attitude (not theoretical but practical) toward the "dust" in man's makeup without excluding the deity. Religion is primarily life. Living is a splendid medium of expression of one's attitude and beliefs. Racial problems don't concern us immediately here in Oregon, but they are important to the world at large. Race distinction is faat paling and the time approaching when skin pigment will have no influence over individual qualifications. The international problem, is growing larger and larger. The material causes of war are not immediate; any number of plausible causes for the World War may be named. There are more material causes for war than ever In existence now. Another war would likely destroy the human race completely. War must be prevented by constructive upbuilding—correct knowledge, Intelligent understanding and intellijustice.
