11 GRADUATES

AT STATE HOME

Mrs. Geo. E. Jester's

Sunday School Class

Sent Flowers

   The graduating exercises at the

State Home last night were highly

creditable in every way. The class consisted,

of ten girls  and one young man

as follows: Misses Mable Craig, Bernice

Pitts, Helen Jones, Virginia Barrett,

Ruby Pierce, Catherine Owens,

Daisy Owens, Jewel Birchfield, Letha

Franks and Zana Bohannon and Mil-

ton Pitts.

   The program tor the occasion was

well arranged and splendidly carried

out on the part of the young people

particularly. Mrs. George E. Jester's

Sunday School class sent a profusion

of flowers that not only the class but

the school and the audience enjoyed,

and for which the recipients expressed

the highest appreciation. Judge

Corley's address was practical, eloquent

at times  and unquestionably

made a lasting impression on the grad-

uates, besides holding the closest at-

tention of all present. Hon. Dexter

Hamilton introduced the speaker.

Mr. J. S. Callicutt was unavoidably

absent and the duty of presenting the

diplomas to the graduates fell upon

Mr. Watson, principal of the Orphan

Home school.

   An especially pleasant feature of

the entire commencement week is the

fact that about fifty former inmates

of the Home have been guests of the

Home during that time.

   The band, under Joel Trimble's di-

rection, entertained with a band con-

cert on the campus before the hour

for the commencement exercises had

arrived.
