Promptly at 8 o'clock Miss Grace D. Paddock began the exercises with the address of welcome delivered in a bright manner. Miss M. Frances Brown's class prophecy was very interesting. The class poem by J. Josephine Roach evoked much applause as it was delivered in a most commendable manner. Miss Isabelle K. Sheehan's class review and history was also a very creditable piece of work and reflected no little credit on the author.

Mr. Frank T. Gaffney's address to the lower classes was excellent his advice doing credit to himself and every one concerned and it certainly displayed the fact that he had been advantageously taught by his experience of school life.

Miss Grace Gilbert read the class will in an acceptable manner for which she received generous aplause{sic}. Miss Eunice Platt made the farewell address and t piroved{sic} to be one of the best pieces of work rendered during the evening.

The class motto is "Aim at the Best."

Miss Kate M. Preston personally conducted the music rendered by the class which revealed much painstaking labor and much credit upon Wallingford's talented music teacher.
