THE MONROE MONITOR CONSOLIDATED WlTt_ tIE MOI',,B INEPENDENT JANUARY 5, 1923 i TWENT¥-STH YEA MONROE, SNOHOMISH COUNTY, WASHINGTON  FIDA¥, JUNE 13, 1924 NUMBER 13 GRADUATION i ASSIST NATURE EXERCISES rains of last week have bene- fitted the berries and tree fruits to i a large extent, The long dry period Fine Audience and a Fine Pro- gram Constituted One Fine Evening of Entertainment And Melody. One of the most edifying events at the comencement time in Monroe was that had in connection with the graduating exercises of the class of 1924, last Thursday evening, in the assembly hall of the school. An estimate of 400 to 500 people is a conservative measure of the crowd which filled the main floor and the balcony to overflow and many rows of extra seats had to be arranged to seat at least a part of allwho sought admission, for many found standing room only in the corridors on both floors. The :stage settings were artistic to a very fine degree and the general arrangements on the platform all that could be desired. It was about 8:10 p. m., when the processional march was played, with Miss Sherrill at the piano, and the students, eighth grade pupils and members of the senior class followed for the last time as such, for when they left the platform they were graduates {vith diploma in_hand as their much covet- ed credential. Rev. P. H. Raymond, Rev. Kleihauer, Profs. Terpening and Rhode, and Whit H. Clark of the board of education, followed in order named. The first number was the invocation by Mr. Raymond, a vocal duet by Misses Orlena Young and Olive Green, and an encore from them finely rendered and very finely ap- preciated. The address by Rev. Kleihauer was a most interesting one and beau- :tifu!ly.apprgpriate to such an de- : :casion. The :speaker stressed much in May was having its ill effects on the berry fields, especially the berry fieldg in upland soils. Having profited by the rains of last week, it is up to the fruit grow- er, and extremely imperative that he cultivate his soil and conserve all the moisture he can. In the cane •fruits, it is not only this year's crop that is essential, but also to take care of the new cane growth which helps to determine the crop for next year. Plenty of good, healthy, vigorous canes are needed. They should receive their growth early so that they can go through the winter in a mature condition• Cultivat'e and con'serve the mois- ture for this year's crop of fruit, and for the new canes for next year's crop. The rains have also helped to in- crease the trawberry yteld from 10 to 15 per cent at least. AMERICAN PACKING CO., C. O. Weiss, Field Manager.

In the initial stages they will employ about thirty men swamping ancl clearing, their contract also calling for grading and graveling. The road which will begin at the Bicycle tree, will be graded 22 feet wide.--Arlington Times.

During his talk the reverend gen- tleman told a few Teal good stories fully to the point he had in mind. His closing words to the class of 1924 were grand and we believe will not be soon forgotten by those to whom his words ere pincipally directed. Rev. Kleihauer may well lay claim to the distinction of being the first speaker in that hall to fully master the accoustic peculiarities thereof. He has a magnificent voice and we can Teadly understand how he was able to essay the role of the Wayfarer in that wonderful pageant of that name given in the University stadium a few years ago. He is dynamic, he is eloquent and in phys- ique a splendid embodiment, a man behind the speech. Miss Marian Funk to a piano ac- companiment played by Miss Cather- ine Clancy, sang beautifully and was roundly applauded for her two fine numbers of the program. Prof. A. R. Terpening, "who we regret deep- ly to say is about to leave Monroe, spoke at quite a length on the Torch society, the workings of the schools generally during the past year; paid considerable reference to a large class of eighth grade pupils seated just at the foot of the stage, a lot of boys and girls about to move. into high school. The pr'esenation of the class of 1924 was made by Prof. E. G. Rhode and received from him by Mr. Clark for the board of edu- cation and his duty of conferring the diplomas was prologued by a short and very suitable talk to the students about to receive them and of corresponding interest to the pat- rons present. Thi ended the ses- sion of the evening, and was follow- by a social while between class members and the many friends who stayed to congratulate them. In con- nection with this final story of the Monroe Union high school for the year 1923-1924 mention must be made of the conferring of scholar- ships on two of the class: Miss Bailey at Whitman and to Frank Kennon at Pullman,' sa4utatorian and valedic-, torian, respectively. Newport  Security State bank having its vault equipped with a mod- ern burglar alarm system. was shipped to Fort Wayne, Ind, for interment. CULTIVATE AND CONSERVE The rain that fell was a good one, it did a great deal of good. No part of the county was missed, and it was worth many thousands of dollars to every part. Dairymen , poultry- men, berry raisers, and in fact all people connected with agriculture, :were glad .to see the rain. The only coment was that it should have come a little earlier. However, to get he best results from this moisture, it is necessary to keep it, and as much of it, for as long a time as possible. Good sur- face cultivation will do this. Cultiva- tion of the surface does not mean that it is necessary to stir the soil very deep but it does mean that at least two or two and'one-half inches of the top soil should be stirred. .This breaks up the capillary action by which water is brought from the subsoil to the surface, and from there it is lost by evaporation. On crops which are just showing through the ground nicely, such as corn, pota- toes, and the like, the harrow may be used to a good advantage. In the cases of row crops more advanced, berries and the like, it will be neces- sary to use a cultivator. Just a light stirring of the soil is all that is necessary to accomplish the desired results. This should be done just as soon after each rain as the ground is dry enough to permit working. ARNOLD Z. SMITH, County Agent. MORGAN VNS SACK OF FLOUR While Billy Morgan, 3rd district ommissioner, did not take the entire bakery at the county employes' pi nic at Lake Stevens last Saturday afternoon, he did succeed in getting a sock of flour for winning the fat man's race, 2oo pounds and better. Billy came under the wire away ahead of all competitors and even at that he had not opened the throttle to near his capacity. The best thing in connection with the win, Billy says, is that coming events cast their shadows ahead so we opine from that he takes it,as a hunch as to What the September ides will do for him.
