The Opera House was crowded last Friday evening with the friends and acquaintances of the High School graduates. The graduation exercises were held there and an interesting program was rendered before the evening’s proceedings were closed by the presentation of diplomas by E. B. Martinelli, the chairman of the city Board of Education.

There was a selection by Marshall’s orchestra, which was highly appreciated. After this came the salutatory address by Miss Oliver (sic) Johnson, who acquitted herself well and earned a burst of applause for her efforts. The young ladies of the graduation class filled the next number with a son “I Live and Love Thee.” District Attorney Langdon (sic) of San Francisco followed with a well received address.

At the conclusion of Mr. Landon’s remarks a piano solo by Miss Rose Sommer and a vocal solo by Mr. Fred  Schaer were rendered and called forth a burst of well merited applause.

Principal John Drew followed with an address to the graduates who were about to leave his care. When he had finished speaking the work of some youthful practical jokers made its appearance in the shape of a large gaudily decorated cabbage which dropped from the rafters above the stage. No one knew just how to receive it or exactly for whom it was intended, some considering it just a boyish prank had a merry laugh, but others who thought that it might have been prompted by malice withheld their smiles and regretted that it had happened upon so inopportune an occasion.

A delightful violin solo was next rendered by Miss Helen A. Harrold, after which Mr. Victor Lund delivered the valedictory address. At its conclusion the graduates had no reason to regret that they had selected him for that duty.

Before presenting the diplomas E. B. Martinelli delivered one of  his characteristic, happy addresses and the graduates come into the possession of that for which they had worked for years.

A better and brighter class never graduated from the school and the best wishes of hundreds of friends accompany them as they go forth to  other endeavors.
