Drury High Graduates Largest Single Class Diplomas Are Awarded 128 Boys and Girls by Chair man Lilly of School Committee —^Innovation is Introduced by Elimination of Usual Formal Ad dress and Substitution of Outlines by Members of Class of.Advantage6 of Each Course in School's Curriculum. Officers Of Graduating Class In Memoriam Burbank—In loving memory of Barah Duncan Sherman Burbank, who departed this life, June 22, 1009. To the majestic strains of Mendelssohn's "Priest's March" played by the Drury high school orchestra, 128 boys and girls inarched, last evening, down the aisles of Drury auditorium, past the rows of seats filled With parents, relatives and friends, to take their places upon the stage for the ceremonies marking the final chapter of their public school careers In this city. It was the largest single class ever graduated from Drury. There were many smiles o( pride, there were a few misty eyes, among those in the audience as the graduates, the girls in pure white with corsages of rose buds and the boys in contrasting dark suits with red bou- tonnicrcs, stood upon the palm-bedecked stage In two groups of almost equal size and lifted clear young voices in the appropriate words and music of "The Heavens Resound" by Beethoven. There was a moment of lushed silence following the Invocation, delivered eloquently and with deep feeling, by Rev. Pliny A. Allen, pastor of the First Unlvcrsalist church, and the graduates again iang, this lime the lively and triumphant strains of "Estudiantlna" by Lccombe. Innovation Introduced The audience was then treated to anlnnovatlon, a departure from the radltlonal graduation ceremonies at Drury, and, judging from Its reception by the spectators, It will bD continued in years to come. Instead of having some outside speaker of note address the class, addresses were made by members of the class themselves. A representative of each of the courses offered at Drury, introduced by Principal John P. McGrory, delivered a brief talk on the alms, the benefits and the work being done la that particular course. A comprehensive Idea of the scope of the work being done at Drury was given in these talks and deep Interest was evinced by the audience. Following these addresses, which are summarized below, the graduating class rose to sing their Class Song, the words of which were written by Sari Ella de Goencz, a member of the class. Lilly Presents Diplomas Then came the most Important event of the evening, the presentation of the diplomas, an event signifying the culmination of four years work and study at Drury. James M. Lilly, chairman of the school committee, who was seated upon the stage with the other members of the committee, presented the graduates with Jbelr diplomas after a brief speech in which he congratulated the Class cf 1933 upon behalf of the school committee. The class roll was called by James Craig Cameron, president of the class, as Mr. Lilly awarded the diplomas. Upon'the completion of this part of the ceremony the auditorium rocked with coneratulatory applause and the audience joined with (he graduates In the singing of the Drury Alma Mater. Then, to the martial strains' of "School March" by Ascher, the 128 boys and girls who had entered the auditorium as students marched out as alumni. Miss Dorothy Elizabeth Wlldman was president of the graduating class. * Jayne's-Rich's Grocery Market QUALITY TEL. 85 & 86 SERVICE Right or We Make It Right is our motto—Just a short dissertation on our method of doing business.

Classical Course Donald Randolph Provencher, who represented the classical course, pre- Jallies Craig Cameron, president, and Miss Dorothy Elizabeth .Wlldman vice-president ol senior class of Drury high school which was graduated last evening. sented the aims of and the benefits lo be derived from this course clearly and eloquently. His address, in part, follows: "Among the many curricula available in high school, the classical one is best adapted, If the student intends to continue the study of the liberal arts at college or at some other higher institution of learning. For the student, too. whose final school education ends in high school. IDc classical course is of incalculable value. Upon the successful completion of his fourth year, he should completely understand the fundamentals of at least two languages, be able to calculate accurately in algebra and geometry, and best of all be well acquainted with the workings of his government. 'At the end of his fourth year, the student should have completed at least three years of Latin. He shall also have completed three years of French, four years of English, two years of algebra, and one of.geom- etry, one year Jn United Stales hls- .ory, and also additional subjects. "Of course the subject which distinguishes the classical curriculum rom other curricula in the high school is Latin. From the first es- ablishment of the high schools In ,he state. Latin was given a prominent place In the course of study as me subject which the student could pursue for four years and so gain he values which are derived from a ubject which offers definite mental llsclpline. , ' "In the study of English, we find he basic fundamentals of rhetoric vhich bring us a better foundation in he reading, writing and speaking of >ur mother tongue. We also become cqualnted with the authors arid writers of American and English lit- rature. "After taking three years o'f French ne may well be able to carry on onversation in this 'language and Iso read French literature. "Coming next to mathematics, we ind a decided development of the blllty to think and express thought learly. accurately and concisely; hile this subject also gives know- edge and training In the solution of uantkative problems arising In very day life. 'The study of history, both An- lent and United States, gives pupils n appreciation of the social and spi- Itual evolution of the human race, nd the important Influence that in- Ividual members of society are ca- able of exerting on the progress of ivlllzation. "The future of classics in this ountry Is not going lo be decided inlnly by the Joy of classics to a fin- hed scholar,,and by the utility of eholar training (or scholarly avoca- on.

Allurd ^ ' Stacey's General Store of character to be derived from an education based mainly on classical literature and classical philosophy has been demonstrated by centuries of experience. . "It is absolutely Impossible to maintain a system of education In which a complete training as a classical scholar in the necessary preliminary to the acquirement of other Intellectual disciplines. Thus the learning of l>'ic languages—Latin or Greek —together with the other subjects offered in this curriculum. Is a subsidiary means for the furtherance of the development of the mind In the regions of logic, philosophy, history and the aesthetic apprehension of literary beauty, and so, the school course of classics must be planned in such a manner that that definite result is achieved; and it is that result, we believe, which is attained In the classical course of Drury high school." Scientific Course The work and alms of the scientific course as explained by James Craig Cameron were, briefly, as follows: "It is the purpose of the scientific curriculum in high school to instill In the student a sound basis of scientific training. "Le.t us take a student who Is desirous of entering^some school of technology. He would, of course, enter the scientific course in high school. "In his first two years he has leeway In regard to choice of subjects. However, he Is well on his way in a definite scientific course of study by the beginning of his, third year, and Is required to take certain subjects to complete his course. During his four years he has a well-planned English course. He Is obliged to have at least two years of French and oftentimes three. The department of mathematics consists of two years of algebra, a year of plane geometry and one half a year of both solid geometry and trigonometry. To complete and fully round out the course, the student must take a year of physics, a year of chemistry and a year of U. 8. history. 'All of these subjects are patterned and arranged to comply with the requirements of the College Entrance Examination Board. The boy who successfully completes this course should be entirely capable of continuing his study along these lines in college. 'Now let us look at It from another angle. Suppose, after the second year of study, circumstances became such that It is quite evident that the boy will be unable to go to college. "By looking at the requlrements,of the course we can readily see that they make up a good practical foundation for any line of work, and that nothing will be lost and a great deal gained by continuing as before. "Education In science is coining to i be regarded as an essential in what | Is known as 'cultural education.' It j is absolutely necessary to proper appreciation and understanding of our environment and our adjustment to it. "Finally and most Important of all there is a great personal satisfaction in being able to understand the technical aspects of things as well as those which are plainly visible to everyone. Thus we sec why an increasing number of students are taking up a. scientific curriculum in high school as a general training for life.' Normal Course Miss Lucile Pike ably and concisely defined the work and opportunities offered by the Normal course as briefly reported below. "The Normal course has been of great value to me, and to all the other students of the course, both in Ihe preparation for the. work at the local State Teachers' College and otherwise.
