FRANKFURT, June 8 — In Stateside fashion, 33 seniors of the Frankfurt Dependents High School and one from Berlin received their graduation diplomas tonight in the school auditorium, which was filled with parents and friends.

Brig Gen Philip E. Gallagher, Frankfurt Military Post commandant, handed out the diplomas after Principal Joseph Donahoe presented the graduating class, the third in the school's history.

The single graduate from Berlin High School, Eloise V. Sullivan, had received permission nearly a month ago from Gen Lucius D. Clay, then U.S. military governor, to receive her diploma with the Frankfurt seniors.

All the traditional graduation ceremonies were included in the program. The valedictorian was Sheila Hunt, while Sallie Sue Nunn was class salutatorian. Dorothey Patterson sang a solo.

The commencement address was delivered by W. B. Lickling, of the U.S. political adviser's office, who was introduced by Dwight Erickson, regional superintendent of schools.

Besides Miss Sullivan, the Frankfurt graduates were:

George R. Batchelder, Mark G. Brislawn, Eugene I. Burke, Jane Marie Collins, Nancy Louise Dalton, Dorothy Ann Daniell, June Dia ne DeMartino, Dona Faye Gresham, Sherman L. Hill, Joseph Hoffmann, Sheila Anne Hunt, Mary Edna James, John L. Jergensen, Barbara L. Larter, Patrick J. Lynch, John E. Martling, Helen Irene Marymee, Neil S. McCartney, Adrienne J. Miller, Barbara M. Muth, Harry H. Neumann, David C. Nunn, Sallie Sue Nunn, Alva Lois Pach, Dorothy J. Patterson, Charles T. Raabe, Frank M. Roberts, Beverly Anne Ross, Millicent Gail Seely, Bill R. Skaggs, John V. Skinner, James B. Smith, and Claire Tessier.

The Frankfurt graduates yesterday joined more than 75 seniors from other high schools in Wiesbaden, Munich, Heidelberg, Bremerhaven, and Nurnberg in the annual boat trip on the Rhine River from Wiesbaden to St. Goar and return.
