One of the most pleasant oc
casions of the season was the
celebration of the sixteenth birth
day anniversary of Miss OIg
Minford last Saturday. The
affair was a complete surprise for
the little lady and was planned by

of Miss Villa Gapen. Miss Edith
LaRue entertained Miss Minford
at supper on this evening, after
which she returned home to find
a house full of her young friends
lo assist her in making Ihe six
teenth birthday anniversary one
long to be remembered. The
merry visitors were out for a rood
lime and Miss Olga joined in and
made the evening one of the mosf
pleasant of her life.
The evening was spent in
games of various kinds, principal
ly upon the lawn, which was
decorated with red, white and
blue, the occasion being so near
Ihe Fourth of July. One of Miss
Oapen's special features was the
poem contest and the charac
terization of those present in
poetry of two lines each. The
lirst contest, in which Ihe poetry
from popular authors was placed
in broken verses and lines upon
Ihe cards, which you were com
pelled lo match up in securing
your partner for supper. The
one that created the greatest
amusement was the character of
those present outlined in noetrv
upon the cards. Each visitor re
ceived two lines of poetry written
by Miss Gapen. and all wore asked
to pick the character intended for.
In this contest Miss Isabella
Young won first prize.
At the usual hour the visitors
were treated to a supply of de
