Plea for patience If your Daily Independent was unusually late yesterday, don't think that you were getting exclusive treatment. This newspaper is in the process of changing over from hot metal to a photographic process of composition. This is a radical departure from the old ways and, among other things, has brought in typesetters and computers with which we are not entirely familiar and which do not always work like the book says. Please bear with us. Our problems are not over. They may continue for several days, but in the end we will have a typographically superior product.

Colorful rites in stadium By Donna Tice- Challenge my fellow graduates to see how many of the world's problems they can solve," Mike Rudd, salutatorian for Corona High School's graduation last night, stated in his speech. The 419 graduates listened to Rudd, and to valedictorian Charles Jameson, and to cheers from the audience as some student's names were read. Their red anjl gold gowns contrasted sharply with the green grass and Jblack night sky, and they sat solemnly waiting for it all to be over. Then the last diploma ^was gra|ited; and Jameson, as student body president, walked to the podium to signal the flipping of tassels on the caps. The flip was followed by caps flying through the air to land on the grass motionless. The recessional, played by the school band as was the processional, saw the new graduates hurriedly move toward the school gymnasium where they were to collect their actual diplomas. They then piled into buses for the all-night party at Disneyland. Rudd also noted in his speech that the 13 years of education for the class were only realized by "an elaborate ceremony such as this." Jameson noted by using a 1692 quotation, that individuals must be careful, strive to be happy, and work. He declared that work must be part of the concept of happiness, further noting the value of work. Giving the invocation for the exercises was Rev. Allan Newman of the First Baptist Church.
