The first graduating class of the Los
Angeles High School made their ap
pearance before the public as a class
last evening, received their diplomas
aud bid a final adieu to the school.
As a class, this of '75 has been preem
inent throughout their course for stu
liotisness and genuine talent. Los
Angeles may well be proud of this
first ripened fruit grown upon her
tree of knowledge—the Public School.
Long before tlie time appointed for
the commencement of the exercises,
Turn-Verein Hall was crowded from
floor to gallery, every available nook
holding somebody anxious to witness
the Interesting ceremony of gradua
tion. It stands as a credit to the peo
ple of Los Angeles that they have al
ways rallied around the public schools,
assistins and encouraging them as
much by their moral as their financial
support. No public exhibition yet
given in the city lias failed to draw a
full audience and prove the most com
plete success in every way.
The exercises commenced shortly
after 8 o'clock last night by music
from the Enterprise Brass Band, and
a prayer by Rev. Mr. Campbell. Be
side the members of the graduating
class there wore seated upon tlie stage
Dr. Lucky, Superintendent of the
Public Schools, Miss Hawks, Assist
ant Principal of tlie High School,Gov.
J. <;. Downey, Rev. Dr. Hill, Rev. Mr.
Campbell, Rev. D.T. Packard, and the
members ot the School Board.
Dr. Lucky announced that the
next exercise was not on the pro
gramme, and that by request of the
Board of Education the report of the
committee appointed to pass upon the
examination would be read. Rev. Mr.
Packard, pastor of tho Congregational
church, read the report, which we will
publish to-morrow.
Tlie Salutatory Address was deliv
ered by Mr. Henry W. O'Melveny, of
the graduating class. The young gen
tleman stepped forward with confi
dence and spoke with a finish of ad
dreM that would have been creditable
to many an older orator. His remarks
Were quite short, immediately to the
point, and therein displayed much
tact on the part of the young gentle
man.
Miss Jessie Peel then read a finely
written essay entitled "Altars of Sac
rifice." It was redolent with poetical
thought, and had that greatest of mer
its, pure, finished English, without an
attempt at display. The young lady
read with a clear, full voice, audible in
tlie remotest corner of the hall.
Miss Addie Gates then read an es
say entitled "Study; its Incentives
and Rewards." Tlie composition was
finished und full of practical thought,
eliciting a hearty encore and shower
of boquets from the audience.
After music by the baud Mr. Henry
Leek delivered an original oration
which be called "The Pathfinders."
His remarks were principally confined
to historical subjects, introducing not
only practical but mental pathfinders.
The orator acquitted himself with
much credit.
Miss Yda Addis followed with an
essay on " Dreams." The text was
closely adhered to and some ideas
brought forth which were certainly
original; perhaps too poetical to with
stand tlie shafts of investigation.
There were practical thoughts, also, in
the composition, as snown by the fol
lowing beautiful words: "On the
whole, dreams are not reliable; beau
tiful they are, but with a dangerous
beauty, for they tempt us with their
brilliant attractions, to destroy by
their baleful effects. But more beau
tiful, more fascinating and more per
ilous than these are day-dreams. Oh!
the gorgeous air-castles that arise be
fore us! Blue, tranquil skies; clear,
plucid waters; luxuriant llowers and
forests brighten and glisten, bloom
and wave, in our lovable waking
dreams. Sweet music echoes through
stately halls, and loving voices float
around us, thrilling the heart as
naught else eau." Throughout, the
composition was marked with thought
and deep feeling.
"Heroes of Peace," an essay read by
Miss liillie Milliken, was a finely pre
pared paperand given with good effect.
"Has Eloquence Declined?" was
the subject of an oration delivered by
Mr. Henry O'Melveny, and received
with applause.
Miss Mary Thomas read an essay on
"Worth and Wealth," iv which she
balanced the value of money and
brains to a nicety and gave, of course,
the preponderance to the latter.
In the midst of his oration, Mr.
O'Melveny met with that very com
mon mishap of forgetting his cue. He
hesitated a moment, wavered, made
his bow and retired in good order.
Meanwhile, tlie exercises were con
tinued, and after the reading of the
essay of Miss Thomas, the young ora
tor resumed his place on the stage and
finished his address in fine style. This
is what we call "clear grit." To suffer
a momentary lapse of memory is only
natural; to face an audience for a sec
ond time under the embarrassing cir
cumstances, requires genuine pluck,
which few possess. By his slight er
ror, the young orator covered himself
with glory.
THK VALEDICTORY.
The exercises on the part bf the
Graduating Clan were concluded by
the Valedictory, read by Miss Jessie
Peel. Tlie paper is worthy of- repro
duction, and we publish it with pleas
ure:
To the Trustees, to the Board of Ed
ucation and to tho public do we owe
our first thanks for the kindness that
we have received in every part of our
school journey. Not only have you
aided us in climbing that high mount
crowned with the fair Temple of Wis
dom, but we have been encouraged by
you aud incited to greater efforts by
your interest. Now that we, the ftrst
graduating class, are to lose our grasp
on.the hands that have sustained us,
to go onward alone, all this rushes on
us, aud we are conscious of a feeling of
gratitude that it would be difficult to
express in words. We can only oiler
our sincere thanks as we say farewell.
Our teachers, who have been our
guides in the life that we are leaving,
must know, even now, something of
our emotions upon leaving your guar
dianship. You have held out helping
hands in all our perplexities; yes,
whenever the mists surrounded us
you have made purer the ideals that
we had erected, and you have made us
better. If would be vain for me to at
tempt to convey to you half we feel;
nay, I had best be silent and let the
stillness speak for me. But though
we say good-bye to your lmmediao
attention, we will cherish your pun.
teachings always, and yours shall be
the central pictures of our school-days,
around which all others shall cluster,
but as background. Will it be vain
to hope that sometimes in the lull of
action there may come to you recol
lections of your first senior class?
That your lines may fall in pleasant
places in the long future to come, and
that your lives may be as peaceful as
"The tides of uslc's golden sea,
Belting toward eternity,"
is the strongest wish of your class, as
they bid you a sad farewell.
To you, our successors, wo hold out
the hand of good fellowship. It is true
that we sorrow at giving up the privi
leges that have been for us alone so
long, but wo yield them with hearty
good will, and have hopes for the fu
ture. Repay, I ask of you, the kind
ness of your teachers, the blessings of
your school days and the interest of
your friends with the noblest actions,
dictated by your own good hearts.
May you honor your last year more
than we have, and may that year en
rich, elevate and ennoble your hearts
and minds. Farewell!
I know not how to address you, my
classmates. We have been together
so long in plans, pursuits and pleas
ures, and have been so happy in this
unity, that it is hard for us to separate
and pursue our separate pathways.
But there is a time for all things, and
the time for this association in school
is past and we cannot recall it. After
one brief glance at the days we have
found so pleasant, we must turn our
hearts onward, for there are many
things to come. The ideals that we
have erected and made fairer each
year, are far above the storms that
sweep o'er the bosom of the earth;
with no dust to settle upon them, no
change to deface them, they stand
very fair and beautiful to us. Keep
them so until we have climbed to
them and can say, "I am satisfied; I
have reached my ideal." Let us work
at this, as we have worked together
in the past. It is unnecessary for me
to speak of the ties that bind us to
gether; we know that they will suffer
uo breaking, and we feel that what
ever may be our different destinies,
that we will return with pleasure to
our school days "on the hill." Though
we feel that
"Seven of us to-day shall learn
That we love each other better,
As we from each other turn."
It is said "the morning and the eve
ning made the day." Now is the
morning of our day, and through its
rosy light we look forward to long
lives filled with heroic deeds and
happy hours, each rosy from the re
flected hue of the East, where we
stand. Let us resolve that when the
day is closing and the work is done,
we may stand together in a rosier,
blighter light than this at the West
rosier than this, because our glorious
dreams will have become glorious re
alities; bright, because those waves of
light shall be
"The first foundation of that near, new day,
That shall be bullded out of Heaven to God."
Farewell!
A shower of bouquets and a hearty
encore attested the appreciation of tlie
audience for Miss Peel's eloquent pro
duction.
Dr. Lucky then delivered an address
to the Graduates, in which he review
ed the most interesting portions of the
course of study just completed, and
delivered a most impressive charge for
their future welfare. The address was
concluded by the presentation of di
plomas to the several members of tlie
GRADUATING CLASS,
Misses Jessie Peel, Addie Gates, Yda
Addis, Lillle Milliken and Mary-
Thomas, and Messrs. Henry O'Mel
veny aud Henry Leek.
Certificates of promotion were then
presented to the members of the inter
mediate classes. The pupils of Miss
Casad's class were first favored, and
then followed tlie classes of Miss Bix
by, Mr. Saxe, Miss Palmer, Mrs. On
stott and Miss Bengougli.
The promotions to the Senior Class
were as follows: The Misses Nellie
White, Ollie Gibson, Mary Chauvin,
Philippa Edwards, Eva Myers, and
Mr. Everett White,
THE DOWNEY MEDAL.
Dr. Lucky then stated that some
time ago Governor Downey had
proposed to award a gold medal
to the member of the Senior Class who
sustained tlie best weekly written ex
aminations during the term. That
honor he declared belonged to Miss
.Mary Thomas. The medal was then
presented to the young lady by the
donor with a neat little speech, and
tlie " medal " scholar received the
honor amidst a torrent of applause.
The exercises were then closed by
singing the following gong by the
class:
CLASS SONG.
*• BY YDA adhis.
We've met again, to separate;
Our school-room life is o'er,
And now l o sing our parting song
We gather here oncu more.
Tho tic's that many bound, aro reft
To set the wand'rers free;
How earnest are tho few now leil
The coming years shall sec;
And coming lips will cry aloud
How worthy we may be.
Upon the stage of human lift
We each have part to play;
And oue may be to prophecy
tne light of brighter day;—
Or of a cheerful, loving home
The happy centre be;—
Or yet one's fate may be lo roam
O'er distant land and sea;
But wheresoe'er wo go, oh! true
And oarnosl let us be.
And let us part, with loving words,—
Cut grudges old away,
And clasp with only kindness one-
Anotlter's hands to-day.
Unpleasant memories are few;
We'll leave them all behind,—
But. ne'er forget the friendly Smiles,
Tlie loving acts, and kind,
For these arc tender, precious tics
That time can ne'er unbind.
To him whose hand litis never moved
A stone trom narrow path.
But aided us to step above
With high, exultant breath,—
To him, and her, whose kindly voice
lias cheered us oflentime,
W r c give our love and gratitude,
To last through future time—
A love that will not pass away—
A gratitude sublime.
O God! the God of old and young
Be Thou our future guide,
And help us live and love for Thee,—
Forgetting all beside.
O, let the brightness of Thy grace
Illume us from on high,
And let Thy perfect rest and peace
Forever on us lie;
And Thine shall be the glory great
Through all eternity.
The assemblage was then dismissed
with a benediction pronounced by
Rev. Dr. White.
THE COMPLIMENTARY PARTY
Was given by the friends of the class
and was largely attended by the youth
and beauty of Los Angeles. Joy was
unrestrained, and music and dancing
closed (he commencement exercises.
