The exercises were held in the Prospect Opera House, which was beautifully and harmoniously decorated with the class colors, green and white, arranged in Japanese themes to illustrate and interpret the classw motto "Banzai" the national greeting of the Japanese and signifying "Long Life."
Long before the hour of begining, the auditorium of the Opera House was filled to its utmost capacity with the parents, relatives and friends of the graduates, impatiently waiting for the transmission of the bright lads and ladies from an ended existance of happy school days to a higher and more stern sphere of life, a going forth to responsibility, and self reliance, equipped to fight the desperate and treacherous battles of life.
At eight o'clock the brilliant program was opened by the Philharmonic orchestra of Marion under the direction of Prof. Howard E. Goodsall followed by Rev. J. J. Halliday, who gave the invocation, and then introduced Miss Mary Hughes, the Salutatorian of the class.
Miss Hughes spoke very nicely, and eloquently expressed the appreciation and love of the class of '05 for teachers and friends who doing their school years inbued them with the principles of learning true friendship and a love for the good and beautiful in life and its living. The fair graduate closed her grand effort with this glorious tribute to those who had brought the class to its cherished goal: "You shall be our forgetmenots in the green meadow of this scene.
Vernon I. Mounts followed with an oration entitled "Three Shafts of Fame." depicting the troublesome and tragic lives of three great men of past decades whose fame ended in misfortune and distress, Cyrus whose shaft of fame ended with a "bowl of blood," Alexander the Great, whose shaft of fame was capped with wine and, Napoleon whose shaft of fame was crowned by degradation and a broken heart. The oration was extremely interesting the well delivered.
Mr. Mounts was followed by Miss Mary Alice Thomas with an essay, "Banzai" the motto of the class.
