Burlington, June 20, The graduating
exercises of St. Michael's college were
held yesterday afternoon before a large
gathering of priests and friends and rela
tives of the graduates. This, the ninth
commencement of the college, is particu
larly, worthy of notice as this is the
first one since the institution was grant
ed its charter as a college by the legisla
ture of the stnte of Vermont on Jan. 2M,
1013, and yesterday's three college grad
uates are the first to whom St. Mich
ael's college has granted the degree of
bachelor of arts. They are: Messrs. J.
Dovle, A. Charbomieau and P. Xolin.
the various essays, the recitation,
singing and music were greatly appre
ciated by all present. The speaker for
the occasion was Rev. W. J. O'Sullivan
of Montpelier, who very eloquently ad
dressed the graduates. Taking as his
theme "The M.ssiou of a Catholic Stu
dent in the Society of To-day," he spoke
of the great need society has of men of
faith and of Christian principles, and of
the courage and determination necessary
to carry them but. In this respect the
speaker especially referred to the actual
state of restivenew, to the lalse doc
trines and principles which are being
promulgated end are a menace and dan
ger to the homes, institutions and liber
ties of our country. 1 here is a call trom
church and state for recruits to enter
the ranks and do battle for iod. for re
ligion, for humanity. The sojourn of
the graduates in St. Michael's college
has been a time of preparation for their
mission, but now they are called to go
forth with determination and definite
purpose to fulfil the duties that await j
them and thus realize the object of their
dreams, prayers and education.
Before closing his addrs. Father
O'Sullivan made a few practical sugges
tions. First, the young men who are
now leaving St. Michael's college should,
as soon as convenient, oeeotne memners
of Catholic organizations, where they
will meet with kindred anil friends and
be protected against the pitfalls and
dangers of all sorts. Being men of edu
cation it is natural that in time thev
assume the leadership of such societies
for the betterment and uplift of their
fellowmen as citizens and as church
Secondly, they should be faithful to
the practices of Christian life and con
duct which they acquired during their
life as students, because if these things
were necessary during the time of prep
aration they must be much more so in
the thick and strife of battle. Thirdly,
they must Is? men of prayer, since our
Redeemer has admonished us that with
out Him we can do nothing.
Finally, the speaker appealed 'to 'the
graduates to be faithful to the motto
which they have chosen: "In hoc sicno

Spaulding, 1013, held its class dir. ex
ercises in the opera house yesterday
afternoon before one of the largest
crowds in several years. The seating
capacity of both the auditorium and.
the gallery was taxed long before the
program started and by 2:30 people who
found standing room almost at a pre
mium were leaving the house. The exer
cises were of high order and the audi
ence was quick to applaud the partici
pants whenever slightest opportunity of
fered. The stage was never more artistically
arranged for a class day affair. The
setting was accomplished with the aid
of ferns and evergreens, while season
able flowers and colored crepe papers
were used elsewhere with harmonious ef
fect. Across the procenium was strung
the words; "Spaulding High School"' in
the school'colors of red and blue, while
along the background appeared the class
motto, "From school to the school of
life,' in the red and white of the academ
ic cluaa and the green and white of
the commercial division.
One of the noteworthy and novel fea
tures of the afternoon was the appear
ance of the senior class girls in charm
ing poplin sailor dresses, the academic
members wearing red ties, while the
commercial graduates-to-be wore green
ties. J he note ot simplicity w-ss not
lost on the audience and it may be pos
sible that many who are looking for
ward to the graduation of their children
in years to come were breathing the
hope that the sensible custom wrtuld be
Just before the exercises began, more
than 2(H) students of the high school
marched down the aisle to specially re
served seats at the front. Mis Joseph
ine Hovey, the instructor in music,
played the march from the stage, and
the student body was marshalled by
Nelson Brown of the 1014 idaas-First,
came the first-year clasa, followed In
turn by the upper classes and bringing
up with the seniors.
President Albert Rock of the commer
cial class presided at the occasion and
he announced the first number. "A Sum
mer Holiday," from "Iolanthe," (Ar
thur Sullivan) which was rendered with
spirit by the senior class chorus, con
sisting of 23 male and female voices,
with Miss Hester Gove as accompanist.
The first literary number waa the ad
dress of welcome bv Homer Charles
Sowles, who extended the felicitations
of the occasion to the undergraduates
and the assembly of visitors. He was
followed by Miss Eileen Belle Parks,
who read "an exceptionally interesting
class history, said by those who know,
to be an exhaustive and detailed account
of every move the class has made since
it left "the grades back in '09.
One of the well pointed and humor
ous numbers was the class will, as read
by Hugh Pierce Bern is. Mr. Bemia' care
ful provisions for the disposition of class
property were always amusing. Miss
Florence May Granger followed by deliv
ering the class ode with excellent spirit
and careful enunciation. The ode was
creditably put together. The next num
ber was a piano duet rendered in a
charming manner by Misses Gladys Mae
Suitor and Mary Lucy Tomaai. Misses
Suitor and Tomasi played the "Steeple
"Some Modern Explorers" was the sub
ject of a timely essay by Alexander Mid
dleton Brown, who was awarded third
honor for merit in scholarship. Mr.
rirown s contnmition to tne program was
the only one of its kind during the aft
ernoon and he delivered a well-conceived
essay without the use of manuscript.
His Voice waa distinctly audible in every
corner of the hall and his expression
quite as clear. The class prophecy was
delivered bv Miss Theresa. May. Duncan
for the commercials and Miss Hester
Gove for the academic class. Miss Dun
can's peep into the future careers of
her classmates brought lortn many
laugh and none the less amusing and
original were the crystal gazing efforts
of Miss Gove, who took her prophecies
from a string of snnll paper slip.
In behalf of the academic clas, James -Mclellan
Langlev presented Spaulding
w ith a sectional case of American Class
ics. The presentation was made in a
neat little three-minute speech. The
chssics are of the same binding? as a
set of English Classics presented to the
school by a preceding class. For the
commercials. (Jelsie Monti announced the
gift of a handsome plastic figure of the
Venus de Milo and Grecian pedestal,
which was exhibited on the stage. Mr.
Monti also made appropriate remarks In
connection with the presentation.
(ieorge Chandler Adie followed with
the address to the graduating class. Mr.
Adie recalled the part which the class of
"13 had played in the history of Spauld

pnigressiveriess and closed with a few
well worded hints as to the conduct of
