The B. H. S. Graduation, Etc.
The Class Tree.
The tree planted Wednesday on the up
per school common was named in honor
of a former classmate. Marjorie Brown,
the fourteen year old daughter of Mr. and
Mrs. Richard Brown of East Belfast, who
lost her life to save a friend from drown
ing. Her pastor, Rev. William Vaughan
gave a eulogy on the young heroine; prinl
cipal foster made a few remarks and the
school sang Abide With Me. George
Ashlev Mathews, class president, placed
the bottle containing class records and an
account of their heroic classmate’s sacri
fice at the roots of the tree and threw the
first shovel full of earth over it, followed
by other members of the class of 1920
The Graduation
There was a very large and enthusiastic
audience in the Armory last Wednesday
evening to listen to one of the most prac
tical programs ever presented by our High
school, and it is hoped by many that this
may be a precedent of those of the futu e.
"1 he class colors, red and white, were used
in combination with an abundance of
green in the effective decorations. Ever
greens were massed on the front of the
stage and on either side of the arch re
lieved only by streamers of the class col
ors in loops, and vases of tulips, etc. The
rear curtain was completely screened with
white lilacs caught with red knots of crepe
paper on a surface of evergreen. The idea
was original and the effect excellent.
Their programs were printed with red
ink; while the flowers worn by many of
the members and the bouquets presented
carried out their class colors and flower,
the red and white carnations.
The Salutatory by Miss Evans was pre
ceded by thoughts based on their motto,
“Build for Character not for Fame,” and
both productions were not only well writ
ten but remarkably well delivered.
The first innovation came with the
commercial scene when the stage curtain
went up to reveal the up to-date office of
Sayden-IIorne & Co., with the following
office force in uniforms putting into prac
tice the many things our commercial de
partments are now specializing on: Man- i
ager, Elizabeth Hills; Purchasing Agent,
Ashley Mathews; Saleslady, Rena Dutton.
Neostyle Operator, Emma Webber; Book
keeper, Muriel Brown; Filing Clerk, Mar
ion Thurston; Adding Machine Operator,
Jennie Roberts; Stenographers: Doris Al
len. Ava Burgess, Hazel lieald; Typists:
Mildred Thomas, Dorothy Ingalls, Louise
uoison.
Karl Smalley, with an original black- j
board drawing, gave a practical demon- I
stration of history in the numerous and
confusing changes brought about in Eu
rope from 1914 to the present date. His
subject matter was well compiled, thor
oughly committed and presented in an
entertaining manner. It was an excellent
illustration of this history-making epoch.
This was followed by another practi
cally illustrated subject when Maurice
Cobb and Thomas Lothrop gave original
talks on chemistry, one preparing the
test of oxygen, hydrogen, etc , as the
other explained their uses, etc.
Royce Miller’s demonstration of higher
mathematics including velocity and sound
was a wonderfully clever piece of work
for a B. H. S. boy to commit and present
in public.
A short scene in <a French millinery i
parlor with Bernice Harriman as the !
modiste and Katherine Brown purchaser,
demonstrated that the languages are re- i
ceiving attention in the B. H. S. as well 1
as the commercial, etc. It was a pretty 1
scene.
Ashley Mathews, president, presented
Mayor Wescott with a check of ?150, the
class gift for the new school building, i
Mayor Wescott’s response was character
istic, acknowledging appreciation, etc.
Hope Dorman preceded her valedictory
with a brief essay on the importance of a
knowledge of the English language to the
boy or girl who would make a success in
life. Its importance was clearly delined
and vividly illustrated. Miss Dorman is
the youngest member of the class but her
reasoning would do credit to any college
graduate. Her farewell address to faculty,
school and classmates was impressive.
Charles S. Bickford, chairman of the
sciiool committee, presented the diplomas
with practical words of advice.
The music included several selections ;
by the school orchestra and chorus num
bers. The latter included a very appro
priate song of “Maine” by R. P. Chase, I
and the class ode w'ritten by Charles j
Robbins.
Supt. E. E. Roderick read a letter from
Mrs. Sarah E. Lewis of this city who !
presented a valuable painting to the i
school in memory of her daughters Helen,
now deceased, and Liella, seriously ill. 1
The former graduated in 1884 and the1
latter in 1887.
The following prizes were awarded;

lhe banquet and ban
The banquet in the Baptist vestry was
! private for the class and their guests. The
| class table was decorated in red and white
! including large bouquets of tulips. The
menu was delicious and well served.
President Matthews acted as toastmaster
and the special class parts, all interesting,
bright and well delivered, were: l he His
tory, by Elizabeth Hills; present ition of
gifts appropriate and appreciated (by the
guests at least) Doris Allen and Austin
Vaughan; Prophecy, as original as it was
imaginative, Ava Burgess; Class Will,
witty and well delivered; Hazel Heald.
Raymond Young,'19; Willard Jennvs, '18,
j Principal Foster, Supt. Roderick and
| Chairman Bickford also added to the
I pleasure of .the event with brief toasts.
The ball followed the banquet in the
Armory with music by McReen's orches
t'a. The dainty dresses of the many
young ladies present added to the beauty
of the occasion and pleasure of all.
Friday morning the graduates and the
teachers left for a few days’ outing at

The Palm Beach, Fla., Post of a recent
date gives an interesting account of a
nlle tournament in that city when a for
mer Belfast man, Milton W. Farrow,
won by a safe margin: “Capt. J. T.
Barton desired that practice commence
at the most difficult range, and it was
decided that two sighting shots and five
shots for record should constitute this
preliminary. The following scores were
made: Farrow, Sr., 24; Breley, 23; Alt
man, 23; Ferguson, 21; Carson, 21; Far
row, Jr., 21; Bell, 20; Steele, 20; Baker,
19; Gutelius, 18. The veteran marks
man was roundly congratulated because
of his ability to “come back” in his mid
season form by the gallery—as well as
by the officers and memoers of the club.”

her loss a daughter, Mrs. Emily F. Lane,
two sons, Charles G. and George E., her
grandsons, Gardner Lane, Rex Havener
and Ivan Havener, and a beloved sister,
Mrs. Sylvanus G. Woods of Prospect,
who is the last of a large family, and
who is better known to her many friends
as Ducky. Besides these she leaves a
circle of friends so wide that from distant
lands and from most unexpected sources
durins her declining years have come
tokens of remembrance and words of
good cheer. A woman of wonderfu
mentality, the charm of her personality
was felt by all who entered her presence.
Above all things else a home maker, each
generation of children found a warm wel
| come at her fireside, and carried forth
into the w rid the memory of her loving
kindness, and personal interest in their
welfare. “All the mother I have known
since I lost my own mother” will find an
echo in many hearts, and no better trib
ute could be given. And so we leave her
i at rest, our neighbor and our friend, in
this beautiful month of June, with the
birds and flowers she loved so well, know
ing that her brave spirit has fared forth
to meet the reward that the Father has
promised for faithful service.—Com.
