Unusual Number Of Brilliant
Events are Booked For
The Final Work
While the official program has
not been completed, commence
ment week at the Eastern Ken
tucky State Normal School, be
ginning on Sunday, June 6, will
be a busy and brilliant one, since
it is believed that never before
has there been so many import
ant events crowded together for
presentation within this period of
time at school.
The opening of the weeks' fes
tivities will occur upon the above
date when Dr. M. B. Adams, of
Georgetown, will deliver the bac
calaureate address, Sunday even
ing at 8 o'clock. This will be
followed on Monday by class and
field day, which in itself will
prove a busy one and participated
in by many. Tuesday will be
elementary day and in the even
ing the commencement play will
be presented. The rehearsals for
this are now going on, and this
feature promises to be one of
the best yet presented. The cast
will be greater than usual and it
is said that the talent could
scarcely be improved upon.
On Wednesday, the interme
diates will come in for their in
ning, the certificate class meeting
being held during the day and the
graduation being the night fea
ture. The commencement exer
cises, it is understood- will be
elaborate to say the least.
On Thursday, the Seniors will
participate in the final chapel ex
ercises. On Thursday night, the
President's reception is another
feature not lacking in point of in
terest. On Friday will occur the Nor
mal School commencement, this
to be followed by the alumni ban
quet in the evening. This will
be a repetition of brilliant affairs,
and the program indicates that it
will prove a very fitting finale to
the season's work at the school.
It is already known that there
will be a large number of visitors
in Richmond during this week ot
festivities among the students,
the parents of many coming,
some from quite a distance to
witness the closing of the school
work upon the part of their rela
tives. Preparations are now be
ing made for provisions for many
who are seeking reservations
heie and there.

this will not be adequate to supply the

ters taken up by the Board of Re

is the result, lit is expected that
within -one or two years, this depart

the way of accommodating the

been provided for students, owing to
the fact that this accommodation

more rooms will be necessary. There

More Than 100 Busily Engaged
At Eastern Kentucky Normal
School Today
Considerably more than 1O0
teachers and students are whet
ting their memory at the Eastern
Kentucky Normal school today,
taking the examination for a
teacher's license and the meet
ing, which will conculde on Sat
urday points to the passing of a
large number to the rank of in
structor. Owing to the large list from
the Normal school, the examina
tions are being held at that in
stitution, four large rooms hav
ing been given over for the
work. The registration of teach
ers and students began Thurs
day night, and there was a large
array on hand early Friday morn
ing, the exminations beginning
at 8:30 o'clock. There are sev
eral from Berea, and other
schools, five students from one
Berea department arriving early
Friday morning. THey asked to
be allowed to take the examina
tions, and sought out County
Superintendent Edwards. He
readily informed them they were
eligible in every way one of the
chief requisites being that they
were 18 years of age, and soon
afterward there were five happy
students at the examination
rooms. They were Misses Ollie
Taylor, Evelyn Morgan and Vir
ginia Prince, and Yearkees- War
ren and Cato Smith. County
Superintendent Edwards stated
that the list was growing, as are
sult of many coming in as did the
Berea delegation, and that the
list to take the examination
would doubtless be the largest in
years. Previous to this unex
pected influx at a late hour, the
number compared favorably with
that of last year.
The papers will be turned over
to Prof. Clark, of Frankfort, who
was sent to take charge of the
missives, and assist with the.
work. He will take the records
to the State Capitol, where they
will be graded and returned. It
is thought this work will be com
pleted within week or ten days.
The Western District examina
tion is being conducted also at
Bowling Green and it is reported
that there is a large list there.
This work is being expedited
