This has indeed been school week. Beginning last Wednesday, when the Grammar School program was given at the Royal, it has been one continual round of entertainment and practice.
Last Thursday night under direction of Miss Naylor (as was) “Cinderella in Flowerland” was given at the Royal. It was a great piece of stage directing; the beauties and wonderful effects were due to the efforts of this talented woman. The children of course did well. Miss Alga Moran, with a remarkable voice for one so young, easily played and sang the principle role. The children were very beautiful.
Friday evening at the auditorium the Eighth Grade had their Class Night. Rady Harris was salutatorian, while Zuleika Boland was valedictorian. Again Miss Alga Moran delighted the audience with a vocal solo. Rev. Moore, delighted the crowd with a wonderful short address upon the possibilities of youth.
Saturday night was rest night.
Sunday morning the Baccalaureate services were held at the auditorium when Rev. W. Slack delivered the sermon. The music for this occasion was furnished by the Music Club, and was very fine.
Monday evening Miss Ewing’s junior pupils appeared in recital at the auditorium. The young folks show good progress by the year’s work. Miss Ewing has been painstaking and loyal to her classes.
Tuesday evening the Senior play, Polly Lou, was given at the Royal. A large crowd assembled to enjoy it and was not disappointed. The Seniors were sponsored by Miss Edith Moore, and she had wrought well during the term.
Wednesday evening at the auditorium Miss Ewing gave a recital of more advanced pupils which was enjoyed by all.

Junior Music Club
Saturday afternoon at the home of Dr. and Mrs. R. H. Grassham, the Junior Music Club entertained mothers of the club members. A special mother’s day program was rendered; each member answered the roll call with a quotation on mother. Life of Lieurance, by Janice Petty; piano solo, Zulieka Boland; reading, Hollen Braudrick; vocal solo, Alga Moran; reading, Dott Smith; piano loge, Lucille Grassham; piano solo Lucile Coffey; reading, Louise Clower; piano loge, Helen Shelby; reading, Mary Lee Styron; piano solo, Margaret Manning; piano solo Margaretta Boland. After the rendition of this program the guests were served ice cream and cake by the hostesses of the afternoon, Misses Lucille Grassham, Dott Smith, and Janice Petty.
One of the most delightful social events of the season was Friday afternoon when Dr. and Mrs. Roy L. Cochran entertained the sophomore class of C. H. S. with a six o’clock luncheon, honoring their sister, Miss Mary Cochran, member of the class. The luncheon was enjoyed on the lawn and it was a supper fit for a king. Much merriment was had and each heartily expressed their thanks to Dr. and Mrs. Cochran for a most pleasant time.
The Senior Class wishes to extend its thanks to the Music Club for their efforts to make the Graduation Exercises the success they have been. Without the aid of our friends we feel that we should make a very poor showing, but with our friends, everything is possible with us. Windel Braudrick, Pres.
