Delaware County's only military institute, in its 121st year, takes on new importance this year since the nation is at war. Commencement exercises at Pennsylvania Military College and its affiliated Preparatory School were well attended, and the uniformed graduates felt a deeper solemnity in the air this year than at previous commencements.
