Emporia Commencement « - n Tradition Still Alive By The Star's Own Service Emnoria, Kan.—Although the College of Emporia here has been closed since .January, the class of 1974 will be graduated in traditional commencement ceremonies May 18 like others in the 92-year-old institution's history. “Whatever we can do to make it as close to the other commencements we will do,” Miss M. Therese Nyce, former senior class president, said. “We’re designing and having our own announcements printed and J’m taking in the order for about 300 today. “We’d like to have as many people show up as we could, alumni and people like that, because this is the last.” When the board of trustees voted unanimously in December to close, the school was about $1 million in debt in faculty salaries and liens on college buildings. Problems were attributed o increased costs, decreased gifts, growth of junior college?, ower birth rates and a trend toward vocational education. Emporia residents, alumni, churches and other concerned groups have been raising and donating money to help pay faculty salaries and some of the debts. Unsecured assets of the institution are being sold, Robert Prins, forme1* chief administrator, said yesterday, and efforts are being made to sell the campus. “We’re still talking with inter, ested parties,” Prins said, “And no concrete offer has been re­ ceived.” The seniors have full approval of the school administrators in returning to the campus for a .‘a re we 11 commencement, Prins said, noting it was proposed when the decision to close was made. A member of the board will present the diplomas and the ceremony will be either in Kenyon Hail, the administration j building, or the chapel. David Page, head of the art ! department at North Penn High ¡School, Laasdale, who was ^graduated from C. of E. in 1971, will speak to the 70 graduating seniors. Miss Nyce and Miss Debbïe Pollock, also a senior, are trying to raise monev for a traditional parent-seniors breakfast before the 2 p.m. graduation. David Eldridge, a member of the admissions department at Kansas State College in Emporia where most of the, seniors finished their last s<M mester, is leading an effort tot find financial backing from tlM business community, Miss Nycef said.
