"Guests at the Troy High School commencement ceremony today are exposed to
some radical ideas, The Record reports. They seem radical a century later,
at least, but may have been more common at the time. Charles Kirschner is
the valedictorian of the school’s second-largest graduating class to date.
The subject of his valedictory address is “The Problem of Corporate Wealth.”
Ruth H. Thiessen’s salutatory address challenges a prejudice against
government that already existed in her time.
Thiessen tells a fable of “The City of Unrest,” where an excess of laws
led people to distrust their leaders’ wisdom, especially after “the
discovery that it was, after all, not necessary for laws to be obeyed so long as
the trespasser could pay for his disobedience!”

“Troy’s New York State League baseball team finally seems to be settling
into something like a permanent form after an official ruling in its favor
this week, but a more consistent roster isn’t helping win the pennant race,
The Record reports.The Trojans won a three-game series with the Syracuse
Stars with a 6-4 win yesterday at Center Island Park. The victory marked the
return to the lineup of pitcher Clifford Randolph, whose status had been
disputed for nearly a month.The last-place Bingoes are insolvent, putting
management of the franchise in the hands of league president John H. Farrell.
In our sportswriter’s opinion, the game turns on a bad call by umpire O’
Brien with one out and Utica trailing 2-1 in the top of the ninth. He calls
a 3-2 pitch high, allowing Utica first baseman Carney to take a base with
one man already on. "
