Twenty-eight young men and women tonight will look over the footlights of the Garden Theatre on a life of new experiences to follow their graduation from the studies of the San Rafael High School.
As in other years, the huge hall will be packed to capacity, and fathers and mothers will feel pardonable pride in their child who has passed successfully the formative period of life to be crowned with the honor that is due one who has clung to the determination to get at least the foundation of an education.
The exercises this evening will open with a vocal selection by the graduating class. Lenore Cochrane, president of the class, will then give the greetings.
Leonard Sutton is scheduled for an essay entitled “The Unselfish Republic.” An essay by Ruthven Waterman on “Domestic Science” is to follow. Two songs by the graduating class will precede an essay on “Russian Education,” by Pierce Deasy. And then, preceding an instrumental selection by Lillian DuBois, Harry Fish and ean (sic) Allen, Miss Helen Fox will render an essay on “Individual Food Conservation,” and Miss Miriam Blumenthal is scheduled for Acknowledgment.
Rev. Dr. Lynn T. White will deliver the address, and Thos. P. Boyd, president of the Board of Education, will confer the diplomas.
