arduous toll of the nurse's oarer in th
world. Bat the training hern had so
thoroughly prepared the graduates to
rnter life's great field that they flt am
ply capable to start on the course of
their life work. With grateful words
she expressed the thanks of the olaat to
the medioal staff and the superintendent
of nurses for the earnest and valuable
instruction imparted to them during
their oourse in the school. With a few
well chosen and touching words the
speaker then bade adieu to her class
mates, the junior class, and the Institu
tion. Preaentation of the diploma by Dr. J.
H. Lancashire followed the valedictory
and then a piano solo was rendered by
Miss Mary Butler, in which was shown
even more ability than in her plaving
in the duet. It was a difficult numhtr
but ao perfeetly rendered as to elicit
much applause. After the presentiin m
of the badges by Miss Davis, the pro
gram was closed u ith a soprano solo by
Mrs. Cecille Berryman. This number
was one of the most enjoyable of the
evening, the singer's beautiful tonea and
interpretation being most pleasing.
Miss Whiting added to the enjoyment
of the program by her perfect accom
paniments for the vocal numbers.
The pr rsm being finished the floor
was cleared and dancing was indulged in
by the nurses and friends till 10 o'clock,
Mr Herlrt Palfrey presiding at the
piano for the dance music.
The class who received diplomas was
composed of the following members:
Selma Elizabeth Schneck, Berne, Ind. ;
