Largest Class in History of School Received Diplomas Friday Night
The twenty-second annual commencement of the Worthington high school was held
in the Methodist church last Friday night, at which time twenty-four pupils were
graduated, having completed the assigned course, and were granted diplomas.
The church was crowded as was also the Sunday school room and the galleries.
It is estimated that between six and seven hundred friends of the pupils were
assembled to witness the exercises. The decorations were in the class colors of
green and white, a row of tissue paper of the colors extending around the
gallery railing and the pillars, while on the platform the same color scheme was
carried out with flowers.
At eight o'clock the graduates took their places upon the platform and the
high school orchestra, composed of Messrs. Arnold Moeller, Ben Hildyard, Arthur
Sather, Outhwaite Kumler, Joe Hildyard, and Miss Beth Sibley, rendered an
appropriate and pleasing selection.
Rev. Schmidt in a short invocation followed, after which came the salutatory,
by Grace V. Mann. Miss Mann chose for her subject "Memory," and the young lady
delivered her address in a clear distinct voice and showed that she was
possessed of the quality that goes to make public speakers. There was no time
when she could not be distinctly heard and understood. That she had given
considerable time and preparation to her paper was evident from the masterly way
in which she handled the subject.
Outhwaite Kumler then sang two tenor solos in good voice, accompanied by Miss
Beth Sibley at the piano.
Dr. S. Arthur Cooke, of Marshall, Minn., was selected by the class to deliver
the address of the evening, and they could not have made a better selection. His
address was a masterpiece of thought and was ably rendered. He is a deep thinker
and has the happy faculty of expressing his thoughts in a clear, concise manner.
Messrs. Arthur Sather, Arba Bedford, Joseph Hildyard and Outhwaite Kumler
composing the Senior Brass quartette then rendered the "Pilgrim's Chorus," by
Wagner, in an exceedingly fine manner, followed by the valedictorian, Helen
Ramage. Miss Ramage selected "Lives Worth Living" as her topic and brought out
many points worthy of study by older and more experienced people than herself.
She cited instances of numerous lives that had been worth the living, showing
that she had devoted much time and careful attention to her subject.
Superintendent E.C. Meridith, in a short address then presented the diplomas.
The parchments were tied with the high school colors of crimson and black
instead of the class colors, making a very pretty contrast.
The Senior male quartette then sang two selections, "Shepherd's Lullaby" and
"The Shoogy-Shoo." The quartette is composed of George D. Lawson, 1st tenor;
Outhwaite Kumler, 2nd tenor; Arba Bedford, baritone and Joseph Hildyard, basso.
These young gentlemen are all the possessors of excellent voices and rendered
their selection nicely, the voices blending in perfect harmony. Their work was
The senior class song was then rendered by the entire class with Arba Bedford
at the piano, after which came the class yell and the exercises were over and
twenty-four young men and women were pronounced able to enter into the
battlefield of life.
A pleasing feature of the commencement was the fact that two more pupils were
graduated than whose names appeared upon the program. These pupils had given up
the idea of passing, but by dint of extra hard work they made up their back
grades and secured the necessary credits. These two, Misses Alice Bloom and
Grace Hagerman, probably deserve an extra measure of credit for the pluck and
perseverance exhibited in winning out after the case seemed hopeless.
The class of '09 was the largest ever graduated from the Worthington schools
and was composed of the following: Misses Edna Fellows, Beth Sibley, Emma Strom,
Lottie Kall, Thresa Sibley, Ella Guernsey, Mary Ramage, Alice Pannell, Bernice
Weidman, Lillian Darling, Gertrude Mishler, Helen Ramage, Emma Dysthe, Grace
Mann, Alice Bloom, Grace Hagerman and Messrs. Paul Ventioner, Arba Bedford,
Arthur Sather, Outhwaite Kumler, George Kunzman, Joseph Hildyard, Joseph
Hagerman and George D. Lawson.

classify a fish caught by W.I. Humiston at Lake Ocheda Sunday. The fish is a

appear in the eyes, and there is a reddish color dominant throughout the entire

endeavor to discover its pedigree. It is a strange fish and is attracting a
great deal of attention and comment.
