Commencement exercises of the Barrington High School occurred at the German Evangelical church, Friday evening, June 26th. The church, which is a large one, was filled long before the hour for the exercises to commence. Promptly at 8:15, Rev. E. Rahn played the march as the graduates marched down the center aisle to the front part of the church. Rev. G. A. Wells gave the invocation which was followed by music by the quartette. The salutatory and essay “The Railroad” was delivered in an able manner by Frank Robertson. This was followed by an essay “The Selection and Perusal of authors” by Margaret Jennie Crowley, which contained very good advice. A song was then given by Miss Jessie Fox, which was followed by an essay “The Star of Bethlehem” by Alice Leone Hawley, which was well received. The Class History, written in 1915 by Gertrude Meyer and Alma Winter, was very interesting. Mr. Wells then gave a song, followed by an essay on “Money a Medium of Exchange” by Glenn Roy Hawley, which was well worth hearing. This was followed by an essay, ‘A View of the Indians,’ and valedictory, by Belle Robertson Clark, which was well rendered. Music was then given by Mrs. H. E. Fox; Mr. C. H.
