WEISSINGER COMMENCEMENT EXERCISES CHILDREN'S DAY y Closing Event for Class of Nineteen Fourteen Attended by Large Audience. Last Thursday evening, at the opera house, occurred the commencement exercises of the Class bf 1914 of Saline high school. The night was cod..and the audience was able -.to enjoy the evening comfortably. The stage was tastefully- decorated with the class colors, lavender and gold, with the class motto, "Ad Asper per Aspera," meaning "To the Stars Through Difficulties," in gold, letters above the stage. The class colors were supplemented with, foliage apd flowers, which combined to make it appear very beautiful. . . - At the appointed hour, of eight o'clock Miss Vesta Mills rendered the march, "'Fantaisie "di Lucrezia Borgia," while .the class of. nine young ladies and .gentlemen marched to the stage, accompanied by Superintendent Walling, and Rev. H, W. Mack, who offered invocation .\j Miss Mabel Gass sang three pretty solos, "When 'the Almond Blossoms Fall," "I Sometimes* Wonder" ahd "YoSan." '■'... Arthur F. Nissly opened the.program for the class with a well prepared salutatory of welcome, likening the class to a ship on the sea of life. Bernard Mason followed with a time- 'ly oration, "Tne New Menace," which we publish in full. " "' " . v Miss Hazel B. Cook revealed tne future of the. class in her prophecy, gotten up after the style of "The Raven," and which also appears in this issue.' . " '• Miss Ve.ta M. Cole delivered the class valedictory which, with: the salutatory, will be printed next,week. Miss Vivian I. Mack played a beautiful piano solo, "A La Bien Aim'ee,"- which was heartily applauded. Superintendent Walling introduced Professor N. A. Harvey, of the Ypsi-; lanti Normal,, who spoke at some length before touching on the "theme tie had chosen, "Blunders,''.buthe brought out many good thoughts .when he did "arrive" and which;jyjeire SS" applicable.'to a" large and. attehtive audience as. to the class. .; ',.":" Arthur Nissly, on behalf of-the class, presented'the -school a beautiful framed picture which will sgr^e as*a lasiting token of their appreciation, pf the years they have enjoyed in this seat of learning. Mr. Walling feefingly^c- cepted the gift for the -school,, after which he preseiitedthe- happy "young people their well-earned diplomas. * The class song* concluded the evening's program. - - . - A New Menace . Where there are no morals the people perish. The world has had its renaissance of music and art, and today we. are in the midst of a wide spread moral $gitat_on. Iri our music halls we, hear the sweetest music; in pur art galleries we gaze Upon the world's greatest masterpieces. But bur faces must redden with the blush of shame when reference is made to that institution which ■so largely moulds the . character ' and shapes the- morals of so many" of our people, and determines the destiny'of our nation—-the average • American theatre. _"*■••■ In ancient days; the; Greek arid Roman built.hi?" theatre ras he built his marketplace and church, and the entire populace joined, • at the break of day, in viewing the religious' dramas of Aeschylus, Sophocles arid Euripides,, dramas which have never beeff surpassed for beauty, depth.of meaning and educational value. Then did the theatre' fulfill its true mission. But soon, came the blighting days of the Lower Empire and the triumph of vice. The wild excitement of gladitorial combats and chariot races appealed to the young .Greek's passion for adventure and the theatre which was once the pride of a wonderful- civilization sank steadily downward, until today, far too often, it exists merely as an institution, whereby the hungering of the human soul for amusement is turned into heaps of gold at" the feet of theatrical managers.. Let us go to the entrance of an average American theatre. The.crowd is gathering. Watch'the expectant multf- tudes pouring from all directions, in autos, street cars, taxicabs, coming afoot' —elbowing, shoving, crowding themselves forward to the ticket office; 'here are all nationalities, a throng fifty times greater than is addressed by all the pastors of Christian churches^ Utterly forgetful ofthe morrow are they,' thinking only of the pleasures of the moment. Coming to the House of Dreams to for-' get the strife and strain" and .turmoil of this struggle for existence and t'o lose themselves for one happy moment in this Mimic World, the world of their childhood dreams. Appeal to their baser natures and their darker passions are called into play; appeal to their higher natures and-the loftiest antl noblest in life respond. Changeable as children are they, mere toys in* the hands,of the play-wright. Pass inside. <■ The curtain has risen, the play is on. . But alas, instead ofthe lofty ideal, iustead of the noble theme, all too often we are given "dramatized filth in tinselled trappings." Instead pf an exhibition of absolute sincerity on the'part of the playwright, the first characteristic of. a really good play, we are giyen the product of motives attuned* to the note of dollars and cents.'- We cry out against yellow journalism,* we object to - the detailed* publication " of sensational murder cases in tiur daily papers, and in doing so we are sending out-our own protests against the modern stage ior there are" given more t'rag*- ic scenes in far more sensational form.
