THAT GRADUATION long ago floats back to be remembered. Graduates sat on the back of the stage, so that all could see. It was not well-planned, however, for the seniors could not hear a word that was said the whole time. Most of us had other things to think about, so we really didn't miss the advice which was aimed at us, but which we could not hear. While I never was a witness, it is said that there is always one graduate who fears the temperature will rise to record levels and he, or she, will be unprepared. His or her entire attire consists of gown, cap, and shoes. There is the graduate, usually a boy, who is cheered by all when he is handed his diploma. None of his classmates, himself included, thought this day would ever come. Only his mother knew for sure. All feel the embarrassment of the graduate who trips over his own feet on his way to pick up the diploma. At a recent Conval graduation, one young man orchestrated an elaborate fall. He fooled everyone, except those who heard, later, that it had been done on purpose. AS THE MARSHALS lower the baton, the row of graduates who have received their diplomas sit down. The baton is raised, and the next row stands, ready to receive theirs. How entertaining it was one year when hums of the appropriate pitch accompanied the orchestrated sitting and standing. School officials, we heard, were not pleased. Although many might not admit it, members of the audience were entertained. Not only was the maneuver different, but it was unstoppable. The kids had it figured out. Who was going to stop them? They couldn't be kept after school for naughtiness, and diplomas could not, at that point, be withheld. That class captured my imagination. This year's graduation will be the same as many others, but it will be different. You just know it. !o watch graduations are two or 52 years r, better than the graduates, t. and observers enjoy the and making new Gifts are given and are not the same for they vary in families Nonetheless, events will and everyone will someday have Own, and will pass on the realizing they are doing ago, when I graduated High School, tradition gift.
