The local high school (Loyal, Clark Co., Wis.) held their annual commencement exercises at the M.W.A. Hall on Thursday evening, June 7th, 1917, when five young people were given their diplomas.

The Hall was prettily decorated in the class colors of green and gold, and at the rear of the stage hung the class motto, "Sunrise not Sunset."

The program was given as printed in a former issue of the Tribune, each one taking their parts creditably. The subjects given by each showed careful preparation and training. The male quartet selection by Messrs. B.W., J.R. and R. Colby, and E.L Henning was well received.

The orator of the evening, Principal Olson of Reedsburg, gave a very fine address, which was listened to by an appreciative audience.

Following this came the presentation of diplomas by Principal McKean.

The following are the names of those completing the course: Misses Esther Van Camp, Bernice Irvine, Mable Etta, Gladys Herdrich and Mr. Lafaytette Lyon. The class have all completed the High School Course with credit, and each one is planning to equip themselves still further by entering some school or college in the fall.

Much credit is due Principal E.J. McKean, and also the school board, for their untiring labor in making this one of the foremost high school in the county.
