Closing Exercise at the Normal School.
The fortieth annual commence
ment week at the Bloomsburg State
Normal School and Literary Insti
tute opened on Sunday afternoon
at 3 o'clock, when Dr. D. J. Waller
preached the baccalaureate sermon
to the graduating class, in the au
ditorium. His text was the second verse of
the twelfth chapter of Romans,
"And be not conformed to this
world, but be ye transformed by
the renewing of your mind, that
ye may prove what is good and ac
ceptable and perfect will of God."
The theme was "Ideals", and
the address abounded in good
strong practical common sense.
On Monday evening the Middler
class presented a drama entitled
"The Elopement of Ellen", which
was very well done in the presence
of a large audience. Miss Bryant,
head of the djpartment of elocu
tion, superintended the preparation
of the play, and much credit is due
her, and all who took part, for the
excellence of the performance.
At 2 p. tn. on Tuesday the plant
ing of the class ivy took place on
the campus at the east end of Nor
mal Hall. The porch was used as
a platform, and was elaborately
draped in the class colors.
The program was as follows:
Following the procession, Daniel
J. Mahoney made the introductory
address, after which Dr. D. J. Wal
ler made nu address, followed by
the class poem by Nora G. Clancy;
the ivy oration by Alvin L. Rum

GETS TWO DEGREES. ,
CV Edward Elwell. Jr.. who
graduated at Trinity College, last
week, earned the degrees of Bach
elor of Arts and Bachelor of Sci
ence. The first was conferred up
on him last week Wednesday, but
owing to the rule of the college
that but one degree will be given
at a time to toe same person, he
will get his Bachelor of Science de
gree next year. No further study
is required, and he will simply have
to appear next June and receive
his diploma1, which has already

PRODDING RUAD SUPERVISORS.
Last week the Columbian called
attention to the decision of the
United States Post-Office Depart
ment to cooperate with local au
thorities everywhere in seeing that
existing road laws were enforced
by requiring rural mail carriers to
report to the Department, through
the postmasters, all roads found in
bad condition. In the same issue
mention- was made of the fact that
District Attorney Small had for
mally notified road supervisors and
constables to see that existing laws
were fully carried out, so far as
available funds would permit.
If the requirements are not en
forced District Attorney Small will
compel those responsible therefore
to preseut their reasons to the court
at the September session. That
the federal authorities are equally
in earnest in their promise of coop
eration in this matter has been pro
ven already in Bradford county.
There C. H. Ross, a rural carrier
whose route runs out of Ulster,
caused the arrest of certain super
visors on a charge of violating the
Pennsylvania statute requiring
road rupervisors to remove all loose
stones from the puolic highways of
their respective townships. When
the case was called before 'Squire
Meredith of Towanda, Mr.. Ross
agreed to withdraw the complaint
upon the supervisors promising to
remove the troublesome stones.
This action serves to emphasize
the warnings embodied in the no
tices sent out heretofore. The de
mand for good roads is almost uni
versal and it is obligatory upon su
pervisors to see that the laws are
carried out. Failure to do so may
mean trouble not so easily escaped
as in the Bradford county case, and
the fact tbflt notice has been given
to enforce the law will not tend to
ward a mitigation of the penalty
provided for neglecting that duty.
PRAISE FOR NORMAL.
When W. S. Herlzog, High
school inspector ot tne department
of Public Instruction, announced
the result of the State committee
examinations of the students at the
Bloomsburg State Normal School
he paid a splendid tribute to the
In the course of his remarks he
stated that during the past year he
had visited practically every High
School in Pennsylvania, the visits
being made in his official capacity
as iuspector. "In none of these
schools." said Mr. Hertzoe. "did
I find a graduate of the Bloomsburg
Normal who was a failure in his or
her work. This is something that
I can not say regarding the gradu
ates of some other Normal schools".
This is a criticism of which every
teacher, official, and graduate of B.
S. N. S. can be justly proud, and
is a tribute of highest worth to the
work that is being doue at the lo
