on the same topic. An Interesting fea
as ture of the program was the deliver

as These diplomas were given out by Mr.

Mr. DuRant then introduced Hon.

ul who is always a favorite with C aren
of don audiences. Mr. McLeod made an
interesting and inspiring patriotic ad
of dress, whieh appealed to his atten
to tive audience, as the loud and frequent
