High School Closing is Largely Attended
The Commencement Exercises of Caddo Schools were largely attended last Friday night at the high school auditorium.
The program as published in the Herald was had and each member acquitted him or her self creditably.
Another graduate, Carl Holland, was added during the last week, he having done extra work by correspondence through the Normal, making nineteen graduates in all this year: ten girls and nine boys. In addition, three others will make up what they lacked during the summer, so that the total number to finish this year will be twenty-two. This is by far the largest class that Caddo has ever had and it speaks well not only for the school and its patrons, but for the diligence of the young people who put forth the effort necessary to accomplish the feat.
Owing to the fact of lower personal valuations and of not many paying taxes this year, the board will not have as much money for next year as will be needed so they have cut hate salaries of the teachers slightly. They would not have done this had it not been necessary.
As yet all the teachers elected have not been announced- some changes will be made due to the cut in salaries, but the board has not yet announced them.
Prof. Early and Mrs. R. W. Wilson are conducting summer school for those who desire to make up the work they lack at the High School building, beginning Monday.
Those teachers who lived elsewhere have gone to their respective homes. Those who live here are resting, preparing to take the summer school at the Normal.
