M.T.M.A. Cadets Graduate Saturday

The thirty-first commencement exercises of the Mount Tamalpais Military Academy will be held in the First Presbyterian Church on Saturday morning at eleven o’clock. A. J. Cloud, assistant superintendent of the San Francisco Schools, will deliver the Commencement address and an invitation is extended by the Academy to its friends and the public to be present at these exercises.

Before the Commencement Processional, the Class of ’24 will initiate a new custom in the Corps by a pilgrimage about the grounds to points of especial memory and pleasure to those now graduating, and where at each place a Senior will address the cadets. Invitations have been sent out for the Senior reception given to the Class of ’24 by the Class of ’25 in the gymnasium.

The Senior Class attended the annual dinner at Major Vanderbilt’s home Friday evening, and the Athletics’ teams of the year have their annual dinner-meeting at Foster Hall on Thursday evening. Cadet William Coit of the Sophomore Class won the 1924 Decathlon Cap for best general results in the physical education instructions contest.

The graduates are: Ulysses Chelli, Lynn T. White Jr., Ray C. Smith and Carl K. Schieck of San Rafael; Robert W. Clifford, of Selma; Harold A. Kaufman, Harness Lockbridge and Philip L. Loney of San Francisco; Howard P. Moore, of Manila; Thordore Schwein of Chico; Alvin L. Newbre of Mazatlan; and Raul A. Salaverria of Salvador. The class averages four years and two months at the Academy.
