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.

s THE MONMAL. about giving- the boys its benediction. It was Friday morning before many of the students knew the facts. All day plans were being made to let the boys know how proud their college was of them. In the late afternoon the domestic science department, consisting chiefly of Seniors, gave an informal reception to the Senior class, with Danny and Bill the honor guests. At six o ’clock the dormitory served a dinner in honor of the two boys. The dinner itself was a simple affair, served to meet Mr. Hoover’s approval. But it was made impressive by the splendid toasts given the boys by Miss Carson, Mr. Mosher, Mr. Clark, and Mr. Garver. Mr. Clark and Mr. Garver, in behalf of the school, presented each of the boys with a handsome wrist watch. In the talks which the boys gave, they showed the intense patriotism which had impelled them to take the course they had. Danny and Bill were to have graduated with the class in May. According to a federal ruling they have already earned their diplomas and are now to be considered as graduates. The Senior class is proud of its only men, and is proud to be able to say that from the class of 1918 there was a one hundred per cent enlist­ ment. Any class would be proud of two such graduates. The whole school is proud of the last two volunteers, especially proud to know that the last are among the best of those who have gone into the service. With Bill and Danny have gone the most sincere wishes of every member of the school, and of their numerous other friends. Their friends cannot help regretting the fact that the boys have gone. But not one would have had it otherwise. They have fulfilled what they considered in these times to be their greatest obligation, their duty to their country. It gives those who have been privileged to be their friends great pleasure to know how exceptionally well that duty will be performed.
