33 YOUNG MEN AND WOMEN GRADUATE BAY CITY SCHOOLS

Prof. E. R. Alexander of A. & M. Delivers Address to Graduating Class of 1934.

Thirty-three young men and women received their diplomas from the Bay City High School last evening at the high school gymnasium. The spacious auditorium was filled with fathers, mothers, friends and schoolmates to witness the final curtain drawn on a successful career for the happy graduates.

The invocation was made by Rev. Paul E. Engle. Bob Wilkinson delivered the salutatory address. Albert Wadsworth, Jr. rendered one of his muchly-enjoyed vocal solos.

Miss Erna Kuesel, joint winner of the American Legion award, delivered an inspiring valedictory address.

The address, something different than usually delivered at commencement exercises, was delivered by Prof. E. A. Alexander of A. & M. College. The professor quoted various statistics on different stock exports from the United States and delved briefly on the possible future of the graduates.

Supt. E. O. Hutcheson awarded the diplomas to the thirty-three graduates, a list of whom appears below.

Scholarships were awarded by Prin. E. O. Posey.

Father Joseph J. Coffey gave the benediction.
