The 13 annual reunión of the alumni of the Ann Arbor High School was held in the hall Friday evening. The exercises differed from the former meetings of the alumni and were less formal and more pleasant. From 8 until nearly 10 o'clock a general reception was held, giving all a chance to renew old acquaintance. The number attending was larger than at any previous reunión and when seated at the table it was found that preparation had not been made for as many as were present. One hundred were seated at the tables, the balance distributing themselves about the room. At the head of the first table sat Frank Allmendinger who acted as toastmaster. In opening the exercises he congratulated the alumni on the iarge number present, the interest shown in the school by tne graduates, and success which the school had attained. Prof. W. S. Perry made the opening remarks welcoming the graduates back to renew old friendships and talk over old times. The poem was read by Miss Ada M. Gilbert, '85. The following toasts were responded to: Welcome to the graduating class, " The baby of today," by H. H. Walker, '89 : "Education and Health," "a healthy fooi is better than a sickly Soloman," by Dr. V. C. Vaughan: "The clagg of '84" by Philip R. Whitman: "The class of '86" by W. B. Ramsey: "The cultivation of the sentimental in school life," '"Tis love that makes the world go round," by J. V. Sheehan, 72: " The drama of school life," by Prof. A. Hennequin: " Recollection of school life '20 years ago," by Frank E. Bliss, '69, of Cleveland: " The Utopian school," by Rev. J. M. Gelston, '65. After the banquet the older members retired and those so inclined tripped the light fantastic toe until after midnight to the excellent music furnished by the Cnequamegons.
