Graduation exercises were held at the Horace Mann school last Friday afternoon. A class of twenty pupils received their diplomas from their teacher, Mrs. Goodchild, signifying that they had completed eight years of elementary school work with passing marks.
For the program of the afternoon the pupils chose their own work. Some took problems in arithmetic and sentence structure, while others gave vivid accounts of historical events.
After the program tea was served to the guests. Mrs. Goodchild acted as hostess and was most charming in her greetings to everyone.

Tonight the civics department of the Woman's club is giving a hard times dance at the club house. This is one of a series of dances which are being given the first and third Thursdays of each month for the young people of Winnetka. These dances are proving quite popular, and they are being well patronized. The young people are always well chaperoned, and an enjoyable evening's entertainment is assured. An admission price of twenty-five cents is charged, which is devoted entirely to the expenses of the dances.
