Flag-draped chairs and Christine Ray, symbolizing the statue of Liberty at the 1918 graduation exercises,
brought a note of sadness to the closing years ofthe 1900's. World War I was a grim reality and the senior boys,
John Larsen, Frank Miles, and Archie Rogers enlisted and were not present to receive their diplomas. Garrett

by assisting with Red Cross Activities.
