THE REUNION AND BANQUET.
One of the important features
of the commencement season was
the Alumni reunion and banquet
held Monday evening. When the
time arrived for the exercises to
begin, the auditorium was literal
ly packed with people. To start
with there was a beautiful chorus
hy the local Alumnae, after which
“The Moonlight Will Come
Again,” a lovely quartette, was
sung by Misses Mabel Veal and
Maud Patillo, and Prof. Oliphaut
and Dr. Kemp.
Mr. F. M. Stafford was master
of ceremonies. He paid a splen
did tribute to Hon. T. W. Hard
wick, the first speaker, \jho had
come fresh from a warm but suc
cessful contest for congress from
the Tenth district.
MR. HARDWICK SPEAKS.
Mr. Hardwick, _in beginning,
laid that he felt that he was just
coming back home and he had
come with no set speech, but he
wanted to say a few things right
out of his lieftft. He spoke of
genius and said it was only ca
pacity for hard work which would
always bring success. Mr. Hard
wick spoke earnestly for educa
tion, especially for the education
of the white children of Georgia
and of the south. The address
was not long but it was good and
well delivered and was frequently
MISS BI.ALOCK SPEAKS.
Mr. Stafford stated that Gojdon
Institute had distinguished daugh
ters as well as distinguished sons,
and one of these was Miss Annie
Blalock, of Boston, Mass. She
spoke interestingly on the subject
of “Education for the art of life.”
She pleaded for education in its
highest sense—physical, mental,
and spiritual developement. Miss
Blalock made quite a good impres
sion and her address was frequent
ELECTION QE OFFICERS.
Following the two addresses,
the audience was dismissed and
the alumni associat ion held a bus
iness session. About the only
thing done was the election of
officers for the ensuing year, which
resulted as follows: Mayor Smith,
president: Mrs. J. L. Hunt, vice
president: Mrs. Shi Gray, secreta
ry; Mrs. J. R. Jordan, treasurer.
The banquet was spread in the
four aisles of the old building and
was a scene of great interest from
this time on until twelve
o’clock. Everybody was in a good
humor, the surroundings were
happy and inviting and no feature
of commencement more enjoy
able than this.
The local alumnae had made
every preparation necessary to the
success of the event and everyone
showed full appreciation. The
menu was elaborate, and the
plans were perfectly carried but.
Mr. F. M. Stafford was toast mas-!
ter aud all of the toasts were ap
propriate and greatly enjoyed.
The following were the toasts

JUNIOR DAY EXERCISES.
Notwithstanding the warm
weather a large audience bad as
sembled Tuesday morning when
the hour arrived for the Junior
day program to begin. The exer

attractive portion of the occasion.

MR. ESTES’ ADDRESS.
The address of Col. Claud Estes
was one of the best things of this
commencement. It was tilled
with thoughts that will be an in
•piration to a higher and better
life. Col. Estes dwelt with four
phases of life, the relation of the
young to the home, to society, to
business and to the church. He
dwelt at some length on each of
He told what a true home was
and illustrated it by telling of his
experience last year in stopping
at an humble home among the
mountains of North Carolina.
The husband and wife had raised
a family of obedient and upright
children and it was a place of
happiness. When night came the
bible was read and prayer offered.
Col. Estes made an impressive
incident of this and it will accom
plish much good. His appeal to
the young people was very earnest
and the address was greatly appre
ciated by the ybung and old.
For many years the entertain
ment by the primary department
has been the most largely attended.
Every body wanted to see the little
folks in their brownie and fairy
costumes and hear them sing and
watch their amusing conduct on
the stage. This year was no ex
ception for Tuesday evening the
auditorium and gallery were pack
ed full of people and the exercises
proved to be as interesting as any
that Gordon Institute ever got
up for such an occasion “The
Sleeping Princess” was presented
by about a hundred little people
all of whom centainly rellected
credit on themselves and their
trainers. It was an old fairy story,
which was dramatized for this
commencement by Mrs. A. M.
Lambdin and Miss Kathryn Lock
hart. It was a good show from
start to finish and everybody was
The Gypsy Revil by second grade
girls was also very good. Of

instrumental, added its important
part to the success of the splendid
