Successful Closing for City Schools-Commencement This Evening. With the graduation of a class of ten. from the high school this evening tin year's work of the city schools is completed. During the year another teacher has been added to the high school teachers, work in chemistry and biology expanded, assistants from the high school used for the kindergarten, the high school placed on the "University list and the high school has had a base ball team worthy of the name. Ample preparation has been made for the exercises this evening and from the advance sale of tickets a crowded house will be present at the fourteenth annual commencement. The stage at the opera house is prettily decorated for the occasion in the class colors of crimson and gold. The following are the graduates: O. A. Jackson, Anna B. Bmpy. M. Ethyl Pratt, Pearl J. Easton. Wm. A. Dwyer. Pearl M. Hubel. Grace Hathaway. Gardis B, Hagle, Neal G. Bidwell, James A/Tatman, _ 'All who finish the work of their respective grades are given certificates to that effect to be presented to their teachers next year. "Prom the eighth promoted to the high school. The grade a class of twenty-eight will be primary department is so crowded that a large number of would-be beginners have been turned away this spring and it is probable that the board will be compelled to rent or purchase a building somewhere in a central position in town to provide additional school room and secure another teacher to take charge of the first grades. Ihe following pupils were neither absent nor tardy during the year: high school—Louie Lower; eighth ,grade—Laila Wilson; seventh grade- Arthur Leusenkamp, "Frank Cornwell, Maggie Lapeer, EthelNorthOn; second grade—Carl "Ross. 1 A "number of changes occur in the teaching force of the school but the school board is not ready at this- time to give out the complete list. Of the present teachers Supt. Riggs expects to do some studying at Ann Arbor during the summer; Miss "Francis Gibson,principal, will Spend, the va-. cation at her home at Otsego as also will Miss Josephin Smith, assistant principal, at Oberlin Ohio—all three will return next year. C. A. Beading, whose work in the eighth grade has been most successful, will retire from teaching and begin work in the Clare County Savings Bank at once and in case he likes it will remain permanently to take the position to be vacated by one of the present employers by reason of promotion to the Farwell bank soon to be opened. Miss M. Glass, teacher of the seventh grade, will spend the vacation as such and resume her work next year; Miss Louie Louch will spend the summer at the State "Normal at Ypsianti and take up her work again next year; Miss Martha Diem of the fourth grade will on account of poor health retire temporarily from teaching and rest at her home at Marine City. Miss Lydia Ort of the third grade for the last two years finds herself not in the best of health and will take a year's rest. Miss Kobison, teacher of the second grade for the last three years, Will spend the summer at home at Mt. Pleasant and next year will teach at Essexville at a salary of $400, where Walter Snider, of the Olare schools last year, is principal. Miss Acker, teacher of the first grade, will spend the summer at home at Big Rapids and have charge of the kindergarten at Dutand next year. The baccalaureate address delivered at the opera house Sunday morning by Eev. A. L. Woodlock of the Congregational church provoked many favorable comments. The text used was ,(What is man?" and the sermon will certainly prove helpfnl to the class and to the large audience present. The music was furnished by a quartet under direction of Prof. H. O. Maybee of the Mt. Pleasant Normal. The quartet rendered three selections all of which were high class and were well received by ah appreciative audience.
