The friends and relatives of the pupils were delightfully surprised when they found that Mine. Yaw and her husband wore aid in the program which was given by the scholars on Thursday afternoon. As Miss Yaw stood in the upper balcony of the school building and she appeared to be as lovely a patron as any troop of little people might desire. Mr. Vere Goldthwaite's address on patriotism was both interesting and inspiring to his young audience. "The Hopeful Tendencies of the Times" was the subject of a short talk given by tbe Uev. S. W. Gage of Covina. The Covina High School band added to the program by rendering several selections. The program given by the pupils of the school was as follows: Song, "Old Glory, We Love Thee," by school; recitation, "What's in a Name?
