rnicut of HiatoiW Vol. 24 WIND UP OF SCHOOL YEAR Past Week Has Been a Busy One forjcellent Graduating Class. «iven IOIIR The Baccalauieate service for the Senior Class was held at the Opera House last Sunday evening. The stage had been beautifully decorated by the Juniors in the 'Class Colors, potted plants, green boughs and p.um blossoms. Ac cross the front of the stage their motto "Success Crowns Effort" was extended and in the back of the stage "1917'' was shaped with plum blossoms oil a red back ground. Following the march of the Seniors robed in cap and gown the services opened with the invocation bv Rev. Kbert. The musical nunr bers of the evening were rendered •by the Lutheran choir. The sermon by Rev. Rudie was one peculiarly appropriate occasion. Some good practical! advice was given to the young| people by the speaker, telling them not to idly while away the time, but to begin at once and do the homelv duties nearest at hand and to be better sons, brothers, neigh bors and Christians. Rev. hoert pronounced the benediction which closed the evening services. It is evident the aim of those in charge of the senior-alumni banquet to make each event in every possible manner exceed those that have passed. That this was accomplished by the seniors at the 11)17 banquet was the opinion of each and every one present. The pleasant affair occurred at the Opera House this year on Wednesday evening.
