          Tonight's program will be the last of the commencement exercises, following those held last night by students of Prep High School, at which 171 young students received their certificates, entitling them to enter high school.  The program carried out at the exercises was an unusually interesting one, and was presented to an overflow audience.

Harris, a member of the Glynn County Board of education.
