Burns’ Hall prettily decorated for the occasion was the scene of the annual commencement exercises of Coaldale High School Friday evening when six graduates bade farewell to their school life and made their bow to the future problems that might confront them.
The hall was crowded to its capacity and the exercises were highly successful and well conducted. The essays were masterpieces of composition and were rendered with fine elocutionary effect. The note of the need for a new high school was sounded by Class President John W. Kalinyak, and throughout the whole proceedings the patriotic theme in keeping with the year of victory was played upon.
An exceptionally good number on the program was “The History of the Star Spangled Banner” given by Miss Ann Phillips of the local teaching staff. The school singing was also good and in fact the program which follows was carried out with a precision and exactness which bespeaks the future success of the graduates.
