Professor Welles, principal of the High school, will give the list of graduates Monday or Tuesday of next week. The papers of several of the students who were late in taking the final examinations are yet to be marked. This is being done today.
Miss Helen Gates, daughter of Dr. L. M. Gates, carried off the honors of the class and will deliver the valedictory address at the commencement Friday night of next week. The exercises will be held in the High school auditorium. The class exercises will be held Thursday night, while on Wednesday night the training school graduates will hold their exercises.
The graduating class, boys and girls, will wear the regulation black gowns and mortar caps, this having been directed by a resolution of the board. The presentation of flowers or bouquets to members of the class at the exercises will not be allowed.
