Hooe of Washington, as the representative of Mrs. Hearst, pre sented the portrait t@ the school. Bishop Satterlee, as presidt of the board of trustees, in accepting the portrait asked Mr. Hooe to convey to the donor the thanks of himself and of the school, and paid trib ute to the generosity of Mrs. Hearst, who, he said, furnished the funds necessary to erect the present magnificent building. The portrait was then delivered into the charge of Misses L. A. Bangs and Mary A. Whiton, principals of the school, after which the class song of 1905 was sung by the young ladies.
