mysteries; we shall be able to associate with learned men and be capable of getting a better conception of their ideas. We have that, which, if pnt to test, will earn us a livelihood and make us, so to speak, independent of others. i ' hen, too, in this day and age of our prosperous nation, an advanced education is necessary to give us the standing among men, which our fathers and grandfathers possessed with their meagre instruction, obtained from teachers whom we should now call incompetent. Thus, we see the value of our twelve years’ work and, when we start out for ourselves, we shall more vividly realize its worth to us. Perhaps T too, we can make it of value to others, for I am sure that if we can convince some person that a good education is the all-important factor of a successful life, we shall arouse in him a desire for knowledge. And, when he perceives that his greatest pleasure is con¬ versing with learned men on subjects with which he has some acquaintance, he will be glad that he made the effort to gain that knowledge. As Salutatorian, in behalf of the class of 1910, I bring you a happy greeting at this our commencement season. We have labored earnestly and have endeavored to prove ourselves worthy of your kindness toward us. We wish to express our gratitude to those who have made our graduation a possibility. It is our earnest wish that, during the years that follow, we may ever be conscious of this gratitude, for it may serve as an inspiration to us to be helpful to those who may struggle under the same diffiuclties that we have met. Then, when we shall have graduated from life’s great school, our commencement shall be the more glorious.

.... Salutatory .... Viva Craddock T HE purpose of this book is to give to the patrons and pupils of our public schools something by which they may remember the school as a whole, as well as our class. To us it seems fitting that we should dedicate this An¬ nual to a person most worthy and best known of all connected with this institution. We sincerely believe Mrs. Sweeney to be unanimously considered as such because she has taught here so many years and has gained the respect of all who know her. Her cordiality and pleasant smile has won for her the love of all her pupils, present and past. We know that anyone with the character she pos¬ sesses must influence those with whom they come in contact. It is true that influ¬ ence will, in a measure, shape the lives of those who come within its reach. And we would not forget what our other teachers have done for us. They have, to the best of their ability, cooperated in spurring us on to the greatest efforts which we were capable of making. We, as graduates, feel the truth of this state¬ ment for, as we know now, our teachers have gauged our possibilities and have found in our natures that to which they could appeal, and, thereby, hold our atten¬ tion to our school work. Our work has been practical. It is easily seen how, by the use of the appara¬ tus, we have been able to get a vivid conception of theories and truths, which might otherwise have been vague and, perhaps, misunderstood. The study with the help of the apparatus was made possible by the school board who amply supplied the necessary articles and, thereby, showed their interest in our educational progress. However, the members of the Board of Education are representatives of that body of people who pay taxes for the maintenance of our public school. And among these taxpayers are the parents, who, with many a sacrifice on their part, send their children to school, and anxiously await the time when thev can sav that their boy or their girl has completed the high school course, and has reached a goal long anticipated by both. The pupil enters the school and gains much by his fellowship with his school¬ mates. During the first three years of our high school life we looked to t hose who were ahead of us; as Seniors we were spurred onward by the first glimpse of the goal, and, now that goal is reached, we feel as though we have accomplished something. Looking into the future just a little, we know that our education will prove to be of great value. We shall be able to comprehend more of the world and its

. ... Board of Education .... Edward L. Wagoner Edward E. Wagoner was born in Girard, Mich. His father, Graton H. Wagoner, was a well-to-do farmer of Girard, and began his son’s education by sending him to the nearby school. Completing the work there, Mr. Wagoner taught in the country schools for a few years. Eater, he became a stu¬ dent at Valpariso, Ind., and at the age of twenty- seven, graduated from the scientific department. After graduating, the next two years were spent in teaching in Indiana. The Terre Haute Street Rail¬ way and Electric Eight Co. next claimed three years of his time. He then came to Quincy, and, for three years, was engineer at the power house. For the past seven years, he has been connected with the McKenzie Milling Co., as chief engineer. He is also a stockholder in the company. Mr. Wagoner is President of the Board and his many years in the teaching profession have qualified him for this position. The exper¬ ience and the position enable him to cope with school problems, and, to appreciate them from a teacher’s viewpoint. Riclujrd T. Baldwin Richard T. Baldwin was born June 20, 1881, at Ida, Mich. Finishing the high school course at Port Huron in 1901, he entered the literary de¬ partment of Albion college and graduated with the class of 1905. Soon after, he married Har¬ riet E. Riddick, who graduated in the same class. During the first year after he left college, Mr. Baldwin superintended the schools at Vandalia, Mich. In February, 1906, he was called to Win- amac, Ind., to take the editorship of the Wina- mac Republican, a county seat republican organ, while its editor spent nearly a year in campaign¬ ing work as secretary of the state central com¬ mittee. When this work was completed early in 1907, Mr. Baldwin became proprietor and editor of the Quincy News. The paper received a new birth and growth, and after continuing in opposi- richard t.
