Fifteen boys and girls were graduated from the Ross Grammar school on Tuesday evening, June 27. The exercises were witnessed by two hundred Ross folks including relatives and friends of the graduates.
Hiawatha, dramatized, was presented by the younger pupils of the school, and then the graduates made their appearance. Each girl was very prettily dressed in white and carried a dainty bouquet of pink sweetpeas. Two minute talks wre given by each graduate including a violin solo and a piano solo by Delbert Radke and Norman David. They were all loudly applauded.
Mrs. E. S. Lake, principal of the school, then presented the diplomas to the class.
To show their gratitude, the class presented Mrs. Lake with a handsome gold wrist watch. Mrs. Lake, as has all the faculty, has taken the deepest interest in the movements of the affairs of the school since it was first established.
The class of 1916 have appreciated it and with regret leave their old playmates. The majority of the class have enrolled for the coming term in t he San Rafael High School.
The graduating class consists of Lawlor Wells, Fredrick Lundstrom, Wm.
Cusick, Geo. Poore, Norman David, Delbert Radke, Vincent Strei, Adelyne
Weymouth, Linda Bauer, Florence Munro, Ruth Lann, Erna Schraubstadter,
Ruth Simpson, Gladys Scott and Hazel Field.
