graduating class of the high school
this year will be the largest in the his
tory or tne institution unless a num
ber of the members fail in thpir final j
examinations. So far ;2 have kept up
their work in good shape and have
passed all the examinations. Cf course
it will be necessary for all the pros
pective graduates to pass in their final
examinations in order for them to
graduate, but it is thought that there
will be little if any change in the'num-
