May Party Proves a
Brilliant Success.
The thirty-first annual May Party of
Division 8S, Brotherhood of Locomo
tive Engineers, held at tho Lloyd last
evening was a signal success, not only
from the standpoint of attendance, but
for the nlcoty with which everything
waB conducted. As early as eight
o'clock the seating capacity of the
gallory was taxed, n half hour later
when tho Stamp orchestra began the
prelude concert standing room was at a
premium, and when the hour for dan
ding arrived the floor was crowded with
participants. Not in recent years has
the attondnnce at this popular function
been so great as last night.
The hall was profusely decorated
with rod and white streamers extend
ing from ceiling to electroliers and to
gallery, and were also used to good
advantage on the stage entrance. These
gave the big hall a pretty appearance,
and with tho handsomely gowned
ladies, tho floor scene as viewed from
the gallory was airly entrancing. Tho
music by Stamp's orchestra of eight
pieces was all that could be desired,
tho floor was in fine condition, tho
participants wero good dunccrs and if
each individual attendant did not havo
a splendid time the fault could not bo
laid to the committees who had so well
plannod the party.
Dancing began shortly aftor nino
o'clock, the grand march being lei by
master of ceremonies F. J. Doran and
daughter, and with the exception of
the customary midnight hour for lunch,
dance followed dnnce until 3:30 this
Chairman Lawhead and his efficient
committees can rest aosured that their
efforts to give tho people an evening
replete with enjoyment were most su
cessful, and tho thirty-first annual May
Party vill pass into history and be re
membered as ono of the most pleasnnt
of the many given.
