Why Does This Blog Exist?

You never know what you'll find here - anything with genealogical or historical value is fair game. This blog will be updated as I clean out my office, go through boxes and piles, or find pertinent items at antique shops. In the meantime, I hope you find something of interest here.

War Has Reduced Size of the Senior Class Roll

    The commencement week program of the local high school will begin Sunday evening, June 5, at 8:30 o'clock when the sermon to the graduates will be delivered by the Rev. Hubert Ketelle, pastor of the Presbyterian church.  The baccalaureate services will be held in the Presbyterian church.  On Tuesday evening, June 17 at 8:30 o'clock the seniors will give their class day exercises in the high school auditorium to which the public is invited.  On Tursday [sic] evening at 8:30 o'clock the commencement exercises will be held in the Grand opera house.  The Rt. Rev. John Poyntz Tyler, bishop of North Dakota, will deliver the address.  His subject will be "Graduation."
    Owing to the fact that a number of the boys that should have graduated with the class this year were prevented from doing so by enlisting in te [sic] military service, the class is smaller than usual this commencement.  The class roll in composed of the following
