YALE CITY SCHOOL
Final Exercises Today—Twelve
High School Graduates
“Queen of Navy” Is Best Shot in Pacific Fleet
The Yale City School closed
1919-20 school year today with a
general chapel meeting. All the
teachers and senior students were
called upon for short talks regard
ing the past, present and future.
Mrs. Stepheson, principal of the
east side school, presented Super-
intendent Landingham as an ap-
preciation of the teachers of his
labors, a set of gold cuff links.
There were twenty-three Junior
high school graduates and twelve
senior graduates. Both classes
rendered exceptionally good pro-
grams at their class day exercises
—the Junior program consisting
mostly of music.
Professor R. M. Caldwell, de
livered the graduation address to
the Seniors and chose as his sub-
ject “The Value of Inheritance,”
which he handled in a very inter-
esting and instructive manner.
Superintendent Landigham pre-
seted the diplomas and spoke for
twenty minutes to the members of
the class, urging upon them to
make the proper use of their edu-
cation and make it count for ser-
vice. His talk was to the point
lor the occasion and was well re-
ceived by the students and audi-
ence as well.
Rev. Peterson delivered the in-
vocation and Rev. Clarke the bene
The high school auditorium was
beautifully decorated for the oc-
casion and when the curtain arose
it showed the graduates, speakers
superintendent and high school
principal seated on the stage.
The orations by the pupils show
ed careful preparation and were
well taken. Miss Grace Palmer
delivered the salutatory and Miss
Gladys Palmer the validictory.
These exercises closes a record
year for the Yale Schools. The
total nrollment for the year was
1200 as compared with 1076 last
An added feature to the gradu-
ation this year was that the eshooj
has now a credited normal train-
ing course upon the completion of
which the state superintendent is-
sues a two year state certificate to
teach school. Four girls of this
year’s graduation class completed
the course—Grace Palmer, Ardis
Rookstool, Beatrice Burgan and
The Yale Schools now has a to-
tal of 39 accredited units of work
and ranks with the best of the
schools in the state.
With the doing of his years’
work Superintendent Landingham
severs his connection with the
schools so far as active participa-
tion is concerned, but he will for
ome time keep watch on the pro-
gress of an institution where he
spent two strenuous years under
conditions which would have dis-
couraged most men—the loss of
the high school building by fire,
inadequate school rooms and
equipment, slowness in the com-
pleting of the new high school
building and personal matters
which should not have entered in-
to the school business. He feels
justified, however, in feeling that
he has done a good work for the
schools in placing it so high in the
credits of the state schools and in
the increased enrollment of the
high school from 77 o 131 in the
past two years.
Mr. Landingham will probably
go into some other line of work
than teaching, but as yet has not
definitely decided what he line
