Many friends and relatives of the members of the class of 1916 witnessed their commencement exercises on Wednesday morning at Wood-Mar Hall. After the invocation by Rev. George H. Lee, an "Aria," by Bach, was played by a quartet, consisting of Mr. and Mrs. Hull, Mr. Sharp and Mr. Lyle. The address to the class was given by Thomas E. Jones, secretary of the Young Friends Work. His subject was, "The Challenges of Today to College People." He discussed h>> challenges hi t.htf> different fields of work —political, commercial, agricultural and religious. Conditions of the present day demand of college young people higher ideals and broader vision than ever before. Some things which will help us to attain our desires are honesty and a broad optimism, which will nr.ake us believe that things will come out right if we are doing right. After the address Mrs. C. A. Morris sang "Then You'll Remember Me," and the stririg quartet played a minuet by Mozart. The degree of Bachelor of Arts was conferred by President Pennington upon Myrtle Thomas and Meade Elliott and the degrees of Bachelor of Arts and Science upon Clarence Jones and Delbert Replogle. The Penn scholarship was awarded to Myrtle Thomas and the junior prize to Norma Harvey. The benediction was pronounced by Rev. Charles 0. Whitely. _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ The alumni held its annual entertainment on Wednesday evening at 8 o'clock. The program consisted of two selections by the Male Quartet, a reading by Mrs. C. A. Morris, a solo by Miss Romig and a pantomime, and was well received by the audience. Pacific is surely proud of her 'Joldgrads."

Monday, the 5th of June, was Class Day for the class of 1916. A large audience assembled early, and at 8 o'clock the program began. The first number was ' 'statistics," and we learned the achievements of each member of the class from the other member. It was a long list for so small a class, for among them they had held almost every office, and had won almost every honor that Pacific offers. The second n u m b e r , called "Lyrics," prove"3~to be an original Sfiftg, !XjPdtera«fc by Meade Elliott and Delbert Replogle. Then followed the "Scroti of Fate," and Myrtle Thomas read us the history of the class of 1916, with a faint glimpse into the future. The next number was entitled "Rod and Rule," and now we saw vivid pictures of college realities. Myrtle Thomas, Meade Elliott and Clarence Jones vs. Mrs. Hodgin, Professor Perisho and Mr. Taggart respectively, met on the discipline committee and revealed student secrets, open and otherwise. After the committee was adjourned we were given a glimpse of "Life." Delbert Replogle, with the garb and the manner of Professor Hawkins, rode in on his bicycle, dismounted and favored us with two readings, some one accompanying him on the piano behind the scenes. "From Day to Day" is what we read next on our programs, and immediately Clarence Jones brought out his diary, lighted his student lamp, and after making entries for the day, read us snatches of what he had written since September 13, 1915. Each line meant vivid recollections for most of us. "Hart Throbs" promised to be interesting, and the promise was not broken when the men of the Continued on page 4

The inspiring baccalaureate services for the class of 1916 and the graduating class of the Academy were held at the Friends church Sunday morning, June fourth. Miss Margaret Hodge of Salem sang- Music was also furnished by a quartet consisting of Prof. R. W. Lewis, Miss Marjorie Gregory, Mrs. Whitely and Mr. Roy Hanville. Pres. Pennington delivered the address, taking as his text "Let this mind be in you which was also in Christ Jesus." The mind"-of-Je5Tts-was dear—it had not hopri rioudp/ibv the sins of parents and His own sinless life had kept it clear. The mind of Jesus was clean -it is impossible to conceive of the man Jesus harboring an impure thought. Jesus' mind was a well stored mind—not content with learning the things convenient to be learned. He reached out and grasped the hard things. He stored His mind with worthwhile material. The mind of Jesus was a working mind. For proof of this we have only to observe the way in which He met those who so often came tempting Him with questions. His was a mind kept clear and clean and trained for efficient service. ASSOCIATIONS ENTERTAIN

FOR CLASS OF 1 9 1 6 The parlors of Kanyon Hall were the scene of one of the most enjoyable social events of the season on the evening of May 27 when the Y. ML. C. A. and the Y. W. C. A. gave their annual reception for the seniors. The presidents of the associations and the seniors received the guests in the reception hall. After talks by Ross Miles on "Things Worth While as Seen by a Y. M. C. A. President," Mildred Benson on "Things Worth While as Seen by a Y. W.

On Tuesday afternoon, May the sixth, occurred the annual com mencement exercises of Pacific Academy at which time the senior class, composed of five boys, received their diplomas, having completed the four year preparatory course. Following the invocation by Rev. F. C. Stannard a string trio composed of Mr. Lyle,. Mr. Hull and Mr. Sharp, with Mrs. Hull at the piano, played the ' 'Night Song" by Schumann, and President Pennington introduced the speaker of the day, the Rev. W. H. Body. Mr. Body handled his subject, "Followers of a Dream," in an interesting and forceful manner. He pointed out the world's truly great men as being first dreamers and then following their dreams. These dreamers were not impractical, but as a result of their visions we have today the wonders of advancement in art and architecture. The ideal or dream raises the standards of society, making it dissatisfied with itself. Such has been and is being the history of war shown by the dream of universal brotherhood and peace. Every college should be a place for the wooing of the dream. Every young man should strive to be a dreamer, one who lifts the standards of the world, a world shaker and maker. The program was completed by a violin solo by Mr. Roy Lyle and the presentation of diplomas by President Pennigton. Those completing the work were Frank Colcord, Addison Kaufman, Alfred Haworth, Dalton Cook and Paul Elliott. C. A. President," and President Pennington on "Things Worth While as Seen by a College President," two clever stunts were given by the associations. Misses Hollingsworth and Reed presided over the punch bowl.

LOCALS Mrs. Albert Jones, of Kverett, Washington, is the guest of her son, Clarence Jones. Miss Lyra Miles and Miss Lesta Cook are guests of friends during commencement week. Mis3 Olive Thomas came down from Roy, Washington, to attend the commencement exercises of her sister, Myrtle. Among the college visitors during the last week of school were Olive Ramsey, Rev. and Mrs. Upton, Floyd Bates, Miss Lewis, Mr. Whitely and Rae Langworthy. Mrs. Hodgin, Misses Sutton, McCracken and Burton entertained for Miss Myrtle Thomas on Tuesday afterno >n, June 6, from four to six. The guests enjoyed a short musical program. Elsie Reed sang "Lilacs" and Pauline Terrell and Frances Elliott gave piano selections. On Friday evening, May 19, the Freshman class of the colloge entertained the Sophomores with a hay-rack party. The two classes started from the college at six o'clock and journeyed to Skookum Lake. The evening was spent telling ghost stories and disposing of weenies, buns and other substantial " e a t s . " The Sophs voted the Freshics "some" entertainers. Remembering the good time enjoyed last year at the reception given to the P. A. and N. H. S. graduating classes, the college students again entertained for them on May 20. The girls' gym was lighted by Japanese lanterns and the class colors, red white, and purple and white, were in evidence. After music by the Glee Club and Male Quartet the guests were told to nattier in their native states as represented by maps on the walls, and the different groups gave characteristic stunts which varied from state songs to snow ball fights and portrayals of Oregon weather. The prize for naming most of the capitals of the states went to Miss Mary Bennett. Refreshments consisting of ice cream and macaroons were served. PACIFIC COLLEGE VS. CHEMAWA P. C. Shut Out Indians Pacific's ball heavers shut out, smothered and beat the Chemawa Indians May 20th to the tune of 10 to 0. Gulley allowed but one slow grounder which went on record as a hit while Pacific's batters pounded out eleven hits. Addams, for Chemawa, was knocked out of the box in the sixth inning and Kennedy who

followed him allowed three runs before the end of the game. The scoring started in first when Pacific scored two runs and continued until the eighth. At no time had Chemawa a chance to score but in the first and then Gulley immediately cut off all hopes by the fan out method. To name stars would be futile as only one error was made by Pacific. The battery worked in perfect shape and the whole infield fielded perfectly. In the outer gardens but one error was made on a hard catch and Colcord electrified the crowd by his one hand catches. Capt. Replogle, Harrington, Hinshaw and Colcord each made two hits and Gulley, Haworth and Elliott each made one h i t Every man but one scored at least one run. Batteries: For Chemawa, Addams, Kennedy and Beyers; Pacific, Gulley and Replogle. Walked: Gulley 1; Addams 1. Struck out: Gulley 14; Chemawa 11. Hits: Chemawa 1; Pacific 11. Umpires Baird and Youngs. Chemawa Wins from P. C.

Pacific lost the last game of the season at Chemawa on May 27, to the tune of 6 to 2. The game was fast and well played, except for a few costly errors made by Pacific. Gulley was not up to form, while Addams of Chemawa pitched tfine ball, and the whole Pacific team seemed to have lost " p e p . " Harrington was Pacific's batting star, and for Chemawa the whole team played fine ball. As the scribe was not there, no further details can be given.
