Social and personal High School Class Night. On Tuesday night, May 18, 1915, the High School seniors very ably entertained an , Interested audience with their class night exercises; Preceding the entertainment of the evening Miss Jeanie Garth admir ably rendered several well chosen piano selections. In his address, as president of the class, George Meadow, made an earnest appeal to his classmates to fulfill all their High School teach ings in becoming real men and wo men. In announcing each speaker he showed a great degree of origin ality. Lila Caldwell, as historian, brought forth facts, probably forgotten by those whom they most nearly con cerned, which brought forth many a ripple of amusement and applause from the audience. As poet, Willa Whitson would have made Bryant sit up and take notice by her parody on his "Thana- topsis." Following this the class musician, Jeanie Garth, rendered another ex quisite selection in her inimitable manner. The prophecy, by Vivenne White, was a marvel of futures lovely and unlovely. Beauchamp McConnell, in a very appropriate address, presented to the school and board of education the beautiful gift of the class, a statute of Hebe, goddess of youth. Dr. Miles, with a few well-chosen words, recited it. All kinds of surprising marvelous gifts were presented to the class by Kate Kirkman as giftorian, Willie B. Forrester, as bone ora tor, brought down the house by his witty sallies. At this point the juniors were invited to the stage when Miss Mary Lee Rogers, as class president, met the advances of the seniors with a few pointed remarks on behalf of the juniors. The evening was closed with the school-song, "Alma Mater," rendered by the two classes. Miss Allen's Recital. Probably the largest of all her music classes during a very interesting and successful period as music teacher in Union City was heard in recital at the courthouse last Friday night. A very large audience was present and the pro gram was well timed. Everyone of the little girls and of the older ones acquit ted herself beautifully and with the well earned distinction that comes from prac tice and application to study. Every one of the performers received the most generous applause and approval. Miss Beulah Allen is a good musician and a painstaking teacher. She has been en trusted with the musical education of quite a number of the girls and bojs of Union City and her work has re ceived the highest approbation. It is hardly possible that one deserves special mention more than another, but the songs by Vivian Woodrow and Louise Harris were in good voice and charm ing effect, and Brownie Massey brought down the house with his violin num bers, especially with the air "It's a Long Way to Tipperary." The name? are as follows: Louise Corum, Zelma Bell, Lyda B. Eoberts, Ruth Powell, James Massey, Flavella Woosley, Emily Woosley, Pau line Mount, Kathryn Bryan, Edna Wil banks, Brownie Massey, Vivian Wood row, Louise Harris, Louise Luten, Fan nie Mott Driskill, Mabel Luten, Carrie Beckham, Allie May Baynes, Kathleen Arnold.
