Washington’s birthday was celebrated at College Hall Friday night be members of the City School. The program was quite elaborate and appropriate to the occasion. The hatchet drill by the young men was splendid, as also the scarf drill by the young ladies. The hall was packed by an appreciative audience. Quite a nice sum was realized to go to the improvement fund for improving the campus.
