What is this?
Optical character recognition (OCR) is an automated process that converts a digital image containing numbers and letters into computer-readable numbers and letters. The search engine used on this web site searches OCR-generated text for the word or phrase you are looking for. Please note that OCR is not 100 percent accurate. If the original image is blurry, has extraneous marks, or contains ornate font styles or very small text, the OCR process will produce nonsense characters, extraneous spaces, and other errors, such as those you may see on this page. In addition, the OCR process cannot interpret images and may ignore them or render them as strings of nonsense characters. Despite these drawbacks, OCR remains a powerful tool for making newspaper pages accessible by searching.

Our hours of work, as well as those of play, bring memories which we shall be glad to recall when school days are over and we have taken our places as workers in the world. For the knowledge we have gained, we thank our instructors, whose patient efforts and wise guidance have opened up the world of books, and have given us in a small measure, at least, a store of the things worth while. We appreciate the deep interest they have taken in our school work. We feel that at last our dangling selves have been drawn to the ground and have been given a firm footing. With this new confidence that we have gained comes a desire to do things which will be of service to our fellow-men. We look forward to commencement day, somewhat dread- iug the time when we must leave the pleasant ways of college life and the many friends we have made here. But, as Cicero has said, “ Friends, though absent, are still present.’’ Their influence goes with us. We are glad that we have had the opportunity of making them, and we have happy reunions to look forward to. With these things in mind, and with high hopes for the future, we go out from our Alma Mater resolved to serve the institution which has so well served us. OUR LAST VOLUNTEERS. On Thursday, May 4th, Eaton Baughman and Wilhelm Rollwitz, answered their country’s call to arms, and enlisted in the navy. Their action came as a surprise to most of the school, for the boys had told only a very few people of their plans. In reality, however, they had been planning a long time to enlist. When the way seemed clear, there were never two boys more ready to go; nor were there ever two happier boys than Danny and Bill when they had finally enlisted and were making their plans to be off. When the school learned the news, it did not take long to go
