High School Commencement

Next Saturday evening the first commencement of the Laketon High School will take place. A class of four members will then take their departure from the school's halls of that place to go forth in the world. The class consists of two ladies and two gentlemen, viz: Martin Gresso, Anna Funderburg, W.R. Scott and Rose Funderburg. The U.B. Church has been selected as the place to hold the exercises. The exercises will begin at 7:30. A large audience is expected to be present to witness them. The music on this occasion will be furnished by the W.E. Thomas Orchestra of this place, and will form one of the enjoyable features of the evening.
