It w’as the last exhibition that will be given by this class during the summer term.  The program commenced at 8:30 and lasted something more than an hour. It consisted of a number of drills to the accompaniment of music, aesthetic dances, songs and calisthenic exercises. There were abou. 60 young ladies taking part and they showed the expert training they had received by the excellent^ manner in which they went through with their parts.

Music was furnished for the occasion by the Normal orchestra.
