aper re- daughter of a middle western mer-l

capital pressed to meet the extravagant de-

her father, he has been stinting him-:
self to buy her extravagant gifts and
is really poor.
The moral of the play has a kick
in it which will open the eyes of many
VERY, and lead some of them in new and
safer paths.

Rev. Lloyd C. Douglas, pastor of the
Congregational church, has contrib-
uted an article to Association Men, the
Y. M. C. A. magazine, which appears
in the June issue, and is entitled, "A
Suggested Valedictory for Class Day
at Any College," especially appropri-
ate at this time of the year.
The article follows:
Honorable Board of Directors, Mem-
bers of the Faculty, Distinguished
Guests, Alumni, Fond Parents, Fellow
Students, Dear Classmates, Ladies and
Gentlemen, and-have I forgotten any-
body, I wonder?
We are about through. One more
long, trying session in these flowing
robes-appropriately so called because
of their perspiration-exciting capaci-
ties-and we shall float out of them
upon the sea of life.
It is a well-known fact among us
that .only a few skippers of our glad-
some fleet are aware of their next port
of call. Most of us are concerned with
the business immediately at hand-
that of standing on the bridge, waving
our handkerchiefs to the crowd on the
wharf.
Cargo Misplaced
Personally, I have an uneasy mis-
giving about my cargo. For some
years the stevedores have been dump-
ing into my hold, and I have stood by,
checking the items: two B's of this,
three A's of that, and ten C's of some-
thing else, with an occasional D or
two of something else-but making no
effort to store the stuff in a manner
that may permit of its being unloaded.
Indeed, as I have looked into the
hold, now and again, of late, I have
beenquite worried over the problem.
I find that I have been considering
certain consignmeis as mere dunnage
which really are of great value.
There 'are huge bales of priceless
wares chucked down in the bilge,
probably water-soaked and half-rotten
by this time, that I could market for a
fine price if only I had known earlier
how important it was to preserve
them.,
Moreover, I have my cabin piled
high with boxes and cartons of mer-
chandise which, a little while ago,
seemed tremendously valuable, but
now appear to be'useless.
Jazz Research
I recall, with a shudder, how I
laughed on the day that the big bale
labeled "Politicl Economy broke
loose from the grappling-hooks and
fell through to the very keel of me,
and smashed; and I said: "Oh, well;
It amounts to little, anyway! Let it
lie!"
That same day I was toting up to
my stateroom packages of stuff which
were so precious I wouldn't let any-
one else touch them-all about the
movie stars, the latest crinkle in jazz,
the last sartorial yip from the haber-
dashery.x
I would give much today if I might
escape this Turkish bath, for a feAv
hours, to dig about in my hold, and lay
hands upon some of the discarded and
water-logged possessions of mine, and
fish them out.
But that seems, impossible. The en-
gines are chug-chugging, and the band
is up-pah-ing, and our admiring
friends are bidding us "Bon voyage!"
We must be true to form, and see the
venturesthrough, according to the best
tfraditions.
Forgive us for wearing serious faces.
We cannot help being-reflective. Every
mother's son of us knows that he is
embarking with a badly-distributed
ballast.
Disgorging is Problem
As for myself-I am aware that
there isn't a scrap of machinery in me

capable of hoisting a single bale df
my cargo up out of the hold. I hooted
at the Literary society, and called the

Oratorical association funny names.
I never learned how to speak in pub-
lic, and am considerably at a disad-
vantage when it comes to expressing
myself clearly in private.
I do not know how to write, con-
vincingly or any other way. It is dif-
ficult for me to compose a readable
letter of 15 lines. In other words, I
am full of knowledge up to my quar
ter-deck, and I have no equipment for
disgorging it.
Oh, ye who follow us-a word with
you! Be careful how you store your
cargo. Don't emulate our folly who
have debated hours on the respective
merits of Gish and Pickford; who
wrote long editorials admonishing the
local playhouse against showing such
an excessive amount of advertisements
on the screen, to the loss of our time
who had come rather to see Deadeye
Pete and Mexico'Jake save the life of
the Queen of Broncho Bill's dive; who
had no time for concerts, lectures, art
exhibits, or the paleontological mu-
seum-half ashamed, indeed, to be
caught with an interest in such things
-I say don't try to perpetuate our
foolishness!
Store Cargo Systematically
Store your cargo so that you can
get at it again. Be sure that you rig
some windlasses and' donkey engines
on your docks, to be used at your var-
ous ports! And Heaven help you if
you toss down into thbe bilge-water
merchandise of great value! I know
some of you. Already well on toward
committing. the same blunder that to-
day causes us unrest. Nobody could
persuade you to appear in a collar
one-inch too high-and you pooh-pooh
the idea of trying to find out what ails
Russia.
Farewell! We are off! In many re-
spects, we have been off all along.
Farewell! Just toss that rear hawser
in, will you? That's a good fellow!
Thanks!
