Altamont Enterprise June 25, 1920 



This has been the busy week at the Altamont High school, in connection with its closing for the year. First came the graduation exercises of the graded department last Friday afternoon; Sunday the baccalaureate sermon; the Alumni banquet Monday evening; the commencement exercises Tuesday evening; and the Senior ball Wednesday evening. 

Six students of the High school successfully passed their examinations. The following members constitute the class of 1920: Ralph Coonley Blessing, Elizabeth R. Plank, Wilhelmine C. Voss, Gladys L. Weaver, Clara M. Wood, all of Altamont, and Margaret E. White of Berne. 



Peter Ten Eyck of Albany has bought the Michael Hennessey farm. 



— Frank Van Auken, one of the assessors of this place, with the other assessors met on Monday at Lansing Appleby’s to adjust the loss caused when dogs destroyed most of his flock of twenty sheep, at Clarksville. The whole flock had to be disposed of. Those not already dead were so injured that they had to be killed. 

— The Joslin homestead occupied by Amasa Joslin and family, narrowly escaped destruction by fire recently. Fire was discovered coming from the upper windows, and had badly scorched two rooms when the discovery was made. The origin of the blaze is not known, but it is supposed to have come from an oil stove. The flames were soon extinguished. 

— “The Triflers,” a Universal production, will be the featured offering at Odd Fellows’ hall on Saturday night. The many theatergoers who look to motion picture players for hints in the latest fashions will be interested in “The Triflers.” Some of the very latest Parisian style creations are worn by the feminine members of the cast. Many of the scenes are laid in exclusive social circles, this giving an opportunity for exquisite display. 



— George S. Vroman, our local postmaster, announces that beginning next week the post office will close Tuesday and Thursday evenings of each week at 6:30. Mr. Vroman is following the plan adopted by the grocerymen of Altamont a few weeks ago.
