The graduation exercises of the Farnam High school was held at the Congregational church last Friday evening. The church was packed to its limit, many being turned away for lack of room.
Professor C. V. Williams of the Curtis Agricultural College, very ably delivered the address and presentation of diplomas. Dr. W. L. Holly had previously been engaged for this part of the program, but was unable to attend on account of being ill.
The class, consisting of seven of Farnam’s most charming young ladies, were the recipients of a great many very beautiful gifts, flowers were in evidence everywhere.
Farnam’s best musical talent was there. The instrumental solo by Miss Hellen Hicks, the duet by Miss Lucile Gass and Professor Ziemer, and the vocal solo by H. N. Stilley were par excellence.
The church was artistically decorated in green and white—the class colors; the class motto, “Tonight We Launch, Where Shall We Anchor?” being strung across the church.
The flower girls were Margaret Liggitt and Frances Tuttle.
